  1. Sounds great, but I've always been a little apprehensive about the whole alphabetical listing. I would have liked something more categorical. Hopefully there's a copious amount of "sees" and "see alsos". Tor.com did a cool article which contained a chronological list of all the Amyrlin Seats. I read it and thought of how cool it was, then was disappointed when I realized it was a list they had compiled themselves, and if I wanted to know about any of these little known historical characters, I'd have to already know their names so I could look it up alphabetically. Well, regardless, my copy is preordered and I look forward to all the information that will be in this book.
  2. In Towers of Midnight, during one of Avi's future visions, I noticed the Aiel referring to the Wise Ones and the "Dragon Blooded". I don't remember much more than that reference, but it seemed to imply the Dragon Blooded were the male equivalent of Wise Ones. So, even with the future being changed, male channelers having an honored place in Aiel society is probably something that would still happen.
  3. That's because Sevanna has magnificent cans.
  4. So Bao is a reference to Beowulf? God, I hope that doesn't mean it's correctly pronounced "Bay-oh." It's bad enough I can't talk about Fain without thinking "Shazam!" No need for me to associate Demandred with Charles in Charge. I read Bao as "bow" (the verb, not what you tie on a Christmas present).
  5. Isn't the ability to channel determined by the soul? I suppose the body has something to do with it, since I seem to recall it was confirmed that whether you're a sparker or a learner isn't based on the soul but varies from rebirth to rebirth. Like maybe a certain gene or part of the brain or whatever. Either way it's irrelevant if Moridin has been confirmed to channel saidin.
  6. I'd like to find out who the Broken Wolf is, what was the deal with Carlinya's viewing, who wrote "Tell the Dragon Reborn" on the slaughtered Tinkers and who sent the fake Aiel to attack the Aes Sedai whose name I can't remember in LoC.
  7. For those asking about Chekov's Gun, I think that was the Turning by 13x13. Something hinted about early on that we didn't see in action until the end. Also, the Sharans could be considered a Chekov's Gun. We knew about them for a long time but didn't know if they'd be involved at the end. The only thing Lucas has "the stones for" is making money. I'd rather not see Wheel of Time sell out. I'd hate to see it become just another "campaign setting" with various authors having conflicting visions, like Forgotten Realms or Dragonlance (neither of those are near the same level as WoT, of course, but both are series that contain multiple authors and many many books...and that's not a good thing).
  8. I think the generally accepted theory is that the sword he found was Justice, which once belonged to Artur Hawkwing. Probably not any kind of *angreal, though.
  9. Haha, I didn't really believe it was, I just really want it to be. Also, how did you know I'm not wearing pants?
  10. So Tor.com Facebooked and Tweeted this today: "Wheel of Time fans may want to stop by Tor.com tomorrow. Just sayin'." I can't lie, my initial reaction was hope that it would mean a change to an earlier release date. I came on here (and TL) hoping someone might have a reasonable guess about what the news could be, but it's still too early and there doesn't seem to be any posts about it (the Tor.com announcement was posted only a half an hour ago).
  11. I agree with your point, but I have to nitpick one thing. 1900 would be the last year of the 19th century, not the beginning. But man, that "absolute gem!" line made my brain hurt. Or my left stone.
  12. I have to agree with Terez. Who's to say the ring of Tamyrlin did anything special? The Amyrlin Seat's (chair, not person) only powers are to keep Egwene's ass from hitting the floor when she sits down.
  13. Was that a legitimate theory? If so, we need a Perrindred and Elaynedred theory too, since both of them were absent from books as well. Also, if someone seriously suggested a Matandred theory, I hope it was only during the time between A Crown of Swords and Winter's Heart, because once he's back in the picture with many POVs, it's kind of hard to take seriously. Well, I would have never taken it seriously anyway, but still.
