  1. \You can't green txt here and you have no face so mfw doesn't work. >mfw i did Haha. I almost did that too.

  3. I would much rather wait another four years. would you rather be an Andoran Noble or Cairhien
  4. A couple of things: 1. As I think I've made it pretty clear, I've greatly enjoyed reading the WOT. The fact that I don't think it's a particularly insightful or challenging piece of writing doesn't mean I don't think it isn't worth reading. Star Wars is bargain-basement space opera, but it's still pretty damn cool. 2. Rather than calling us morons, and simply asserting the existence of all this complexity, why don't you actually explain what you mean and justify your opinion with an actual argument or two. Yes, the Wheel is mentioned all the time by the narrator and various charac
  5. He did it before to prove a point to Tuon. Remember he personally killed all the assassins that he talk to previously. I think he does want to kill her now.
  6. Crazyrandisdead, I always thought the point wasn't that Mat, Perrin and Rand are based on Norse deities but that legends of their exploits exist in the current age. I believe it was a way to expound upon the "time is cyclic" thing and make the world seem more real and connected to ours.
  7. I always thought that our current age was the sixth. We still have myths about magic hammers that cause lightning to fall and were used to kill giants. Also most of mythology is referenced in one way or another. The Forsaken for instance are all ancient gods or demons. Also knowledge from the previous ages doesn't completely fade until right before that age is to come.
  8. I believe it does mention that she is doing better with channeling as the pregnancy progresses.
  9. Not necessarily, her memories are quickly fading as revealed in ToM-22. But LTT would probably remember her would he not?
  10. Interesting implication that I just thought of on the transmigration front. would it be possible that the bonds that Rand has on him stay with the body and if so what implications does it have for Rand's women when his soul moves and they are bonded to Moridin
  11. I could just see it now. Cads pov with her just remembering for the first time in 15 years what she had said, so she wraps her up with air and spanks her on the spot. Rand of course does nothing because he figures it's private business.
  12. Remember that Fortouna thinks that it will be strange to have a PoR who isn't scheming against her. It makes me think that it is likely that he would have considerable influence. He may even become Emperor if Fortouna were to die. That would explain why we hadn't heard of the PoR before. The old Empress had him killed because he was trying to do the same.
  13. I think I said this on another thread but I'll post it here anyway. We have to look at this in a way that makes sense in our own times as well. I don't think it is possible for the Aiel to avoid being forced into a position that they are left with out purpose. They have to get to the point where they are still warriors with a still warriors with a strong sense of honor but with no purpose beyond their own survival. That and the obvious parralels between the Ravens and the Romans and the conquest of Gaul.
  14. It think it is important to interpret the possible future of the Aiel in context of the current word. Keep in mind that time is cyclical. I Think that the Aiel aren't given any higher purpose and it is up to them to figure out what their next move is. There is no way they can returnto the Way of the Leaf and maintain an existence that is consistent with the Celtics that they are in our own ancient history. They almost have to continue to have a war with the Seachean if only to foreshadow their later defiance of the Roman empire as the Guals.
  15. Has anybody looked at the possibility of Demandred being an Ashaman other than Taim. It would explain a lot of the connedtions between the two.
  16. That only way that would be a possibility is if she saw an opportunity on the light side to grab a prominent position of power. I do not see that happening. She has never done a thing for the greater good or to help others. Especially given the latest BS quote showing the ploy is most likely a trap... I didn't see that quote. What did it say? Thank you. It does seem that she or someone else is manipulating her when taken in light of that quote.

  18. Honestly this seems like a bit of a stretch. With Birgitte, Elayne had been talking to her quite a bit. For her to Bond a friend that was on the verge of dying after healing by one of the most skillful people she knew is much more understandable than her bonding a person she barely knows. And for her to do it for the possible advantage it gives her with a tie to the Band would be horrendous.
  19. Is there an Ashaman that was named but never shown who is close to Taim?
  20. Darlin and Bashere cannot be darkfriends because Rand has met with them after the VoG sequence.
  21. There is no redemption for any of the Forsaken. They are each of them as vile as a human could possibly be and no amount of personal regret or attempt to return to the Light could ever make up for their actions. Lanfear is as bad as any of the rest and watching her soul being tortured by the Dark One (or physicaly by Shadar Haran) gives me as much of a warm and fuzzy as I'll get when David Hannlon gets his. She might have infomation that could be used about the nature of the prison of the DO, but there is no way providing that infomation could make up for the least of her actions when sh
  22. This sounds fishy. Plus there is a small outside chance that Demandred is not Roedran himself but rather somebody close to Roedran and controlling him. I was under the impression that we would have had to know who this person is or at the very least know the position that they hold to guess who really is Roederan. Unless I'm forgetting a person who was mentioned by Talmanes or something (and this is a very real possibility, I'm working on my first read through in a while) then it isn't somebody close to him.
  23. I was thinking all these things, and he may go to the fields because he wants Rand to recognize him; I wouldn't put it past him. But if he does go Rand just ends him right there. There is no way Demandred could stand toe to toe with post VoG Rand.
  24. I liked the Roedred theory from the first. Well liked is a strong term; found it most plausible. I just don't see Demandred being able to impersonate a clan chief. On top of that, I think Roedred would be more likely because he could launch on attack on Illian thus pulling more of the coalition forces away when Rand has them march. However, if Demandred were Roedred, why would he go to FoM? Rand would spot him as soon as he saw him.
  25. Thanks. couldn't remember
