    tl;dr

    Anything remotely nerd-related
  1. But the Wheel doesn't actually weave the Dark One's thread because the Dark One doesn't HAVE a thread. He is a cosmic entity that can destroy threads in the same sense that the creator can make them. This means the Dark One isn't part of the pattern so when his prison is weakened or opened he is free to influence the pattern as he wishes. Is it not plausible, then, that when this happens the Dark One can change the pattern however he sees fit which is precisely what the forces for the Light are questing AGAINST? What, then, would prevent the Pattern from eventually being destroyed when a c
  2. by extension, then, that would mean that the dark one would ALWAYS end up being sealed
  3. The irony is a bit deep. The Seanchan collar channelers because they misuse their abilities to assert dominance, manipulate and oppress those without the ability. The White Tower is known for kidnapping the rulers of nations, manipulating people to no end, always seeking to expand their power base and then they claim innocent indignation when the Seanchan come along proclaiming the segregation of channelers from society is for everyones benefit. You do realize all of that happened back in Hawkwings time right? Quite a big difference from this to the reality of the situation which i
  4. was such a thrill reading through this thread. Coz, you strike me as a remarkably astute fellow. You hated Nynaeve and Moiraine as much as I did! LOL I think maybe the author realized that some of these central characters would be disliked, so you end up getting to know them a bit better and respecting them for being the way they are. Allow me to act as an Aes Sedai, and spoil the whole series while not really spoiling anything:
  5. why bother using gateways like that? Just make one gateway to where your enemy is - high in the air, as you say. Once you catch sight of the enemy officers, make a second gateway that separates their skull from their neck. once you do that, toss a bunch of fireballs to create chaos and make the enemy break. gg
  6. Redarm got it right. Make the book physically larger (like one of those oversized, ancient tomes you see in classical fantasy films like Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter), but keep the font size roughly the same as it is in the 'mass market paperback' books - the 3.5" x 5.5" books you see everywhere. You can make a 700-page mass market book into only about 150 - 200 pages simply because the dimensions of the pages in the large book are several times the small ones. Get all 14 or 15 books into one package, call it a collector's item, and sell it for $100 - $120. Maybe put an embossment of
  7. Thanks, man. Handle from my online gaming days. I still game, but not as much. Not actually a SpecOps guy though.

  8. Any chance, after A Memory of Light is published that the entire series from Book 0 - 14 or 1 - 14 will be republished as one large title? Would be neat to have a modern, Western equivalent of more ancient texts like the Shahnameh.
  9. I chose the first book. It got me thoroughly excited to continue the series. It reminded me quite a bit of Star Wars: the overall story arc is quite similar: Young farm kid from a backwater village in the middle of nowhere, raised by adopted parents. Evil comes to find him, and he's rescued and whisked away by a mysterious cleric with strange powers. He journeys to his first big city and
  10. Welcome. Sweet handle.

  11. Wait. What if binding the nine moons to him simply means Tuon bearing Mat's child, someone who's loyal to both of them, who would be more amenable than Tuon to seeking Peace with the Dragon? Or what if she ends up leashed, or is successfully subjected to his ta'veren attribute now that his mind is more level-headed? [Removed]
  12. **So in another thread, I got bored and made a list of the social themes that Robert Jordan explores throughout this book series. This was one of the many points I identified: "...the idea that history will inevitably repeat itself. RJ's interpretation of the idea of a Wheel of Time implies that this repetition is almost literal, owing to reincarnation and a repetition of some events (i.e. Artur Hawkwing conquering the world in a short span, and his empire crumbling rapidly on hearing of his demise. This is exactly what happened to Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan, Atilla the Hun, and Hit
  13. Well stated, Fish! All I can say is.... I agree! THANK YOU BRANDEN SANDERSON :)
