  1. My reading has slowed down significantly. I will continue, though. Don't worry. Are there any websites that have art for the books? Like scenes, characters, creatures, etc?
  2. Yeah, I learned about Mordred and stuff, but didn't Moiraine feel some evil in him when he was in Fal Dara? Agreed about sevenspokes, but once I look I can't stop looking and then I usually find out information that I shouldn't yet. Love the website though. As for my reading, I started off really well, but it all slowed down. I'm about 1/5th through the book and not too much has gone on IMO, maybe I'm missing something. - Aviendha loves Rand that much is certain. - Interesting how Rand speaks as Lews Therin to Lanfear. So he is Lews Therin! - Rand using belafire is badass. How can he
  3. No problem guys! You guys are great help and thankfully you don't spoil the series for me. :) I understand Gawyn's decision better now. Just read the prologue to TFoH and I can already tell it's going to be a great book. Elaida not getting any respect from the other Aes Sedai is awesome. Serves her right. Interesting how Padan Fain is trying to worm his way into the White Tower. Can't they feel the evil? I'm also guessing that it's at least a few months after the end of tSR.
  4. I just finished TSR! Amazing ending as always, Mr. Jordan. - Nynaeve should've finished off the Forsaken. You can't just leave her like that. Her power is amazing, though. - I'm glad that we know that all Seanchan aren't the same. Egeanin is pretty likable, IMO. - Domon + Egeanin? - I wonder if that a'dan type thing will remain or even reach the bottom of the ocean like Domon plans. - I wish they make a movie just so I could see the different types of clothingthat the women seem to use. Jordan seems to really enjoy describing how tight they are. lol - Perrin is a boss right now. Every
  5. Yes, I get that. But Gawyn just changed so much. He didn't strike me as the guy who would do that at all. If anything, he sounded something like a push-over. Then he goes and gathers all of his little guys and kills two Warders (I'm assuming he didn't do it himself) that were his teachers. That's just a big change for him. Did he hate Siuan that much? BTW, I'm interested in Logain's role from now on.
  6. Thanks ascot7, unfortunately it's too late to read New Spring first since I'm almost done with tSR. I've read on about 30 pages from my last post and a lot has happened! - Nynaeve and Elayne were found by a Forsaken I'm guessing...she did what she wanted with them. - Egeanin knows what they are and she wants to us them. - OMG...the White Tower went insane! How I hate Elaida... - Suian and Leane stilled!? WOAH! - Gawyn is a douche. Seriously, what happened to this kid? - So he killed two Warders after Mat handled him like a chump...right...
  7. A little over 3/4 of the way through. Some thoughts: - I don't trust the merchants that the Aiel found in the Waste. Rand doesn't either...hmm... - Trollocs that far down in the Waste...uh oh. - Mat is coming to accept who his is (of the Manetheren royal blood I'm guessing). YES! - Tanchico reminds me of Mexico City. lol - It's so random how Gleb just pops up there with Eaganin. - Nynaeve saw Birgitte and Slayer in the Dream World...hmm - Slayer = Lord Luc = Lan's long-lost cousin or whatever that wanted to claim the Malkieri throne? Don't answer that ;) - Perrin, you are too badass
  8. A little question. I am not permitted to view member profiles (not even my own) or search the forums. Why is this? I'm trying to get an avatar.
  9. He has not. Also, after reading another thread just now, part of my answer about where things are is incorrect. The city of V'saine's location (site of the Collam Daan) is not actually known anymore. I was thinking it was known as Shayol Ghul nowadays, and it is not. Kind of a confusing subject sometimes. I haven't gotten that far yet, man. I have no idea what V'saine is. haha
  10. Oh I see...thank you for your answers! In my last post I forgot to mention the Sea Folk. Really interesting people, IMO. Plus, they're dark-skinned. Yes! ;) I was waiting for one of these cultures since I myself am dark-skinned. Whatever happened with the Shienarans? I'm assuming RJ didn't forget about them?
  11. Wow...the ebook covers are badass. I agree about the American book covers. They suck...really bad.
  12. Over half-way through the book now. Wow...so much has happened! - Rhudien was VERY VERY interesting. - What was up with those fox people Mat saw? - So the modern-day Tinkers and Aiel were originally Jenn Aiel who got tired of carrying the Aes Sedai sa'angreal, ter'angreal, and angreal? Interesting...No wonder the Aiel let the Tinkers roam the Waste. - So the people who gave Rand (or the person who's body he was in in Rhudien's columns) water were Cairheinians? - They had cars and airplanes in the Age of Legends. Wow. - So why did the Aiel go to the Waste? Was Rhudien were they would
  13. Explain to me the Aiel clans, septs, societies, etc. Some of them have blood feuds, but they're all kind of intertwined. Also, kind of a random question. But at this point in this series (1/3 through the 4th book) is Rand still a virgin? I mean, I know Mat isn't and Perrin sleeps with Faile (I think). But even Perrin got nervous and blushed when Faile asked him if he's ever been kissed. Weird, random question...I know. :)
  14. Yeah man! Thanks for the maps! A couple more thoughts from The Shadow's Rising. I'm about 1/3 through it. - Lanfear revealed her intentions to Rand and who she was. He had a chance to kill her, but he passed. It would be difficult to murder someone helpless like that, especially a woman. - That scene with Rand attempting to revive the child was powerful. - The Faile/Perrin relationship is annoying, although, I like Perrin more than I've liked him before. - I sure hope the Whitecloaks get their asses kicked in Edmond's Field. Let's go Perrin + Loial + Aiel + Faile. - The Berelain/Fa
  15. About 1/6th of the way through The Shadow Rising. Some interesting thoughts: - Rand and Egwene don't love each other anymore. That's pretty strange and not what I expected. - So Rand is not exactly mad. Then why did he behead a lady and kill her guards and then make them kneel to him? - Egwene and Nyaneave still fueding...meh. - Min saw herself and two other women around Rand. I'm guessing that Elayne is one of them...who is the other? Lanfear? - The Black Ajah getting Mazrin Taim would be extremely interesting. He's really powerful. - The Seanchan are still in "Randland". I wonder wh
  16. 1. Ba'alzamon was Ishy (who was the most powerful Forsaken). But remember Rand had Callandor, one of the most powerful sa'angreal ever, so that helped make up for his lack of experience. 2. Rand is definately a little mad at this point but I think most of his problems this book just revolve around the huge stress that he is now under now that he has declared himself the Dragon Reborn. See what you think about how mad he is in the next few books. 3. Berelain is Min's hawk. Lanfear was the woman she warned him about. 4. But you can see the awesomeness of Mat start to emerge. He gets better an
  17. Finished the Dragon Reborn finally...quite an ending! - I doubt that Ba'alzamon was Ishmael. Isn't he the strongest Forsaken? - Is Rand mad already? I mean, the guy is like in a different world than everybody else. It's...interesting. But he's not very likable. - That First of Mayene...is she Perrin's hawk? Maybe this is who Min told him to worry about? Or is that Lanfear? - Mat is awesome in some scenes and annoying in other parts. - What's up with Moiraine plus the three accepted. They're always bitching about something...women.
  18. I'm just gonna say that I freaking love the Aiel...the only one I don't like is Rand. haha
  19. Haha...I was going to quote your post and then saw the spoiler tags around something. My heart stopped...then I saw what it said. Nice. ;)
  20. Something seemingly small turned me away from The Dragon Reborn for a couple of days. I hated it how Mat beat not one, but two, Warder trained (one who is said to be as talented as a Warder) men with a weapon that it's never even mentioned that he's used. I mean, if he was so good on the quarterstaff why did he choose a bow to take with him on the journey from Edmond's Field? Plus, he had just gotten out of his sickbed and could barely walk. Galad and Gawyn were taken out easily. Are you trying to tell me an an untrained, sick, weak farmer can take down a warder or two? Don't think so. Als
  21. I'm currently on The Dragon Reborn. A couple of thoughts: - Emo Rand? Meh... - Perrin was awesome against the Myrdraal and Trollocs in the mountain battle! Go wolves! - Nynaeve is a badass...Egewene and Elayne are still kind of "innocent" and do dumb things. - Lanfear interfering with all the guys...hmm. Mat, unlike the other two, is at least suspicious. - Hasn't Min told anyone about Lanfear? Lanfear already announced herself to Min at the end of The Great Hunt. - Sheriam Sedia a Black Ajah!? Verin Sedai a Black Ajah!? I guess I'll have to find out. ;)
  22. Yes, yes it was. Thank you! Hmm...I for sure would've thought that the White Tower would ask her some questions. Step away from the keyboard. Getting the Dragon Reborn later today. :)
  23. You better put a seatbelt on, because the next one is even crazier! The Dragon Reborn is very, very good. And it is when Mat starts to be really funny. About the Seanchen - you'll see! Haha yeah, I wasn't really hoping for an answer...just wondering. It was interesting how Liandrin and the High Lady of Seanchan (can't remember her name) both had the same "master". Oh it was interesting indeed. I wonder what the other guys saw. They were all in shock. The fact that it actually took them 4 months to get there was another nice twist. Quick question...what happened to the da
  24. Oh my...I just finished the Great Hunt. I NEED MORE! I wonder if the Seanchan will come back? Or will Rand go to them?
  25. Haha is it "World of Robert Jordan's..."? And yes, agreed about Lan quotes. I'm still looking for a comprehensive map of "Randland". Something like this, but it's only of Andor. :( http://13depository.blogspot.com/2009/01/mapping-wheel-of-time-andor.html
