  1. More so, how can you not have Verin freaking Sedai on the poll. One of the best and most unique characters in the series.
  2. My favorites, because it's almost impossible to choose one: Rand, Mat, Lanfear, Ishmael/Moridin, Demandred, Moiraine, Min, Semirhage, Thom, Lan, Nynaeve, Egwene (sometimes, but not always), Aviendha (sometimes, but not always), and of course Verin. I voted Lanfear though, just because I do love her as a character. I want her to come back to the Light.
  3. So how do you expect the final book to play out, chapter-by-chapter pretty much. For instance: Chapter 1 - rand pov Chapter 2 - rand pov so on and so on, and where and at what points certain things will happen (for instance) Chapter 36 - Demandred dies or something like that.
  4. Rand, Mat, and Perrin each spend different books in the lead role. Although it would seem Rand is the main hero of the story (and indeed, he is), the other two are equally critical to the plot and take up an almost equal amount of screen (well book) time. So in a way, they're all three the main protagonist. Rand's duty and purpose is just the greatest. Which one is your favorite to read? Who has the best parts? What are those parts? Who's best in which book? My favorite is Rand, although i really like Mat. Perrin has a couple good books, but he gets really dull after he meets Faile and
  5. Who's the best in bed? Probably Mat...he seems to have the most experience. Who's most likely to have a threesome, though? Rand...so that's a win for him.
  6. I don't think any of the Forsaken will turn back to the Light, but I hope at least one will. Four possibilities: 1) Moridin - but not likely. His link with Rand may have some effect, but he seems bent to want an end to everything. Maybe Rand could influence his opinion, though, but I doubt it. Moridin seems to be the main bad guy Forsaken at this point, and I don't see that changing. 2) Graendal - again not likely. There's not really any reason for this character to do so. The only reason she may wish to is because she will likely be in a state of torture now, but that should be more d
  7. As I posted elsewhere, my early compilation of Forsaken appearances and first time their names are mentioned. I have excluded Aran'gar, Osan'gar, and Cyndane as I haven't gotten that far in my re-read. Listed in order of appearance: (there are some exceptions) 1. Ishamael (first appears in EotW Prologue; name first mentioned a few times in EotW.) (appears in EotW, TGH, TDR) 2. Aginor (first appears in EotW; name first mentioned earlier in EotW) (appears in EotW) 3. Balthamel (first appears in EotW; name first mentioned earlier in EotW) (appears in EotW) 4. Lanfear (first
  8. So I don't know why, but when I was re-reading the series (as I still am) I try picking up each time a Forsaken first appears (whether in person or in the guise of someone else) and also the first time(s) their names are mentioned, and this is what I've come up with so far: (up to LoC Ch. 1)
  9. Everytime I hear the song "Circle" by Slipknot I think of WoT. These lines in particular: "Give me the dust, of my father Stand on the face, of the ancients Bury the sacred flesh, of time itself." -Makes me think especially of Rand, being the reincarnated Lews Therin, he possesses ancient qualities. And for some reason this line always makes me think of Graendal hiding out at Nattin's Barrow, probably because the first time I listened to this song, I was reading TGS: "There's a sacred place, Roselle keeps safe."
  10. Breaking it down by book now: The Eye of the World: The escape from Shaidar Logoth, with Mashadar consuming Trollocs and making the escape difficult, causing the company to break up Runner up: Winternight (Rand's first encounter with Trollocs ever!) The Great Hunt: Rand, Loial, and Hurin in the Portal World, especially when they run into Selene (Lanfear) for the first time Runner up: Rand catching up with Thom; such a great character moment. The Dragon Reborn: Pretty much any of the Tear scenes, but I guess overall: Rand versus Ishamael in the Heart of the Stone Runner up: Perri
  11. I always assumed the title to refer to the harsh winter, but I find this fascinating (from TFoH Ch52): Now I know Cyndane was rather insignificant in Winter's Heart, at least in comparison to the role she played as Lanfear in books 2-5, but could the title possibly, even if in just some remote way, reference Cyndane here. Remember in WH she has just decided that, rather than try to love Rand/Lews Therin, she will kill him, as we see from her PoV at the Battle Near Shaidar Logoth. Winter's heart would surely be an icy, snowy, white thing; winter symbolizes darkness, and woman. Lanfear
  12. At first I thought it was Moghedian myself, but now that I think about it, that's completely unlike her. She always hides in the shadows; you would pretty much have to be looking for her in TAR to find her. She certainly wouldn't just appear to some random girl in TAR and talk to her.
  13. If Demandred ends up being lame, after all the suspense. Honestly, I'd be disappointed if he's Roedran just cause everyone's been predicting that, and I want something grander. If Cyndane is just luring Rand into a trap, I'll be a bit disappointed. Unless the trap actually works for once. But if it's a simple fix that is over within the first 100 pages, then lame. Don't waste Cyndane please. I would love to see Lanfear return to the Light and die sealing the Bore with Rand. If, right after Tarmon Gaidon is over, the Seanchan completely invade Randland and declare it the new Seanchan Em
  14. How is this measuring power? By strength in the One Power? And if so, do higher levels (e.g. Level 10) indicate higher performance/strength, or do lower levels (e.g. Level 1)? Where can a full list of this sort be found?
  15. So while we're on this topic, who is more advanced with Tel'aran'rhiod: Lanfear or Moghedian? Moghedian always claimed to be better than Lanfear, and Birgitte made some remarks suggesting the same. Yet one cannot deny that Lanfear is adeptly skilled at prowling through Tel'aran'rhiod and enterring people's dreams. In ToM, for instance, she even gets into Rand's dreams despite his blocks when she appears to him as Cyndane. And as far as I'm concerned, Moghedian's skill never impressed me. She allowed herself to be collared with an a'dam; Egwene, who has been a Dreamwalker for a much shorter
  16. As much as I would like it to be about Lanfear, it seems obvious it must be about Moiraine. Otherwise, what the hell was the point in bringing her back from Finnland in the first place?
  17. Yeah, and technically Rahvin actually did accomplish something none of the other Forsaken have: he killed off some of the main characters (Mat and Aviendha, and Asmodean).
  18. How could I forget these two, both from the same scene.
  19. Not necessarily your favorite characters overall, but which characters shine most in which books? Mine: The Eye of the World: Rand, Moiraine, Thom (my favorite in this book), Lan The Great Hunt: Rand, Verin, Ingtar, Selene, Thom (again, probably my favorite in the book), Moiraine The Dragon Reborn: Moiraine, Thom, Perrin (he pretty much dominates this book with so many scenes) The Shadow Rising: Rand, Perrin, Nynaeve, Lanfear, Loial (although his actions are more off-screen - closing the Waygate and saving kids in Stone) The Fires of Heaven: Lanfear (bitch mode FTW), Moirai
  20. There are some really catchy quotes, those that are memorable and stick with you. What ones come to mind to you? One that I really like (I can't remember who says it) from Winter's Heart: "She's channeling saidin." - In response to Aran'gar seizing saidin during the Cleansing of Saidin Of course there's also "Kneal, or be knealt." - Taim (Lord of Chaos - post Dumai's Well battle) What other great ones come to mind?
  21. I would say over all it's probably Dumai's Wells. Just everything about it. Pure awesomeness. I'll list more later, and probably my favorite from each book as well. I did like all the scenes where Mesaana appeared in moonlight shadows; just the description of her appearance made her chilling and striking. Same of Semirhage's fiery illusion.
