  1. Question related to balefire. This is mainly a hypothetical question, and it's really just to use in a "Werewolf" game on another forum. Let there be 4 people - A, B, C and D. The idea - B wishes to kill A. B shoots an arrow but C jumps in front of A and takes the arrow. C is injured and A survives. Should D balefire C so that C did not exist prior to the jump, would A then be affected by arrow?
  2. That's quite cool. Didn't know there was someone who live(s/d) so close (well, I'm assuming ha) to home on here.
  3. Part of what made Siuan's death so sad for me was because she was the kind of woman to go 'the victory of the Light/Rand/Egwene/etc. are more important than my life' and to go through with sacrificing herself knowing the consequences. However, her death didn't really achieve anything. As far as I recall she didn't actually help or save anyone, which just makes it feel like she foolishly wasted her life by disregarding Min's viewing (if she'd stayed with Gareth she would have lived), rather than nobly sacrificing hersef for the greater good. I agree. I just knew it was happening, and I w
  4. If you are referring to the Camelon by Falkirk in Scotland then I am struggling to see the similarities I am indeed referring to there. Plus, it's closer to Caemlyn than Camelot is. At least, in name. Plus, I never noticed you are from Scotland, so my bad.
  5. Eg's death was not pointless. I don't see how people can view her death as pointless in the slightest (no offence).
  6. Actually, Caemlyn has nothing to do with Camelot! It was completely, 100% inspired by a place near my home town, that is called Camelon...
  7. Because he (supposedly) added a tonne of appendix stuff. Still haven't gotten round to watching it though. Plus, he cut a fair bit out of LotR, though he added a few things in. But yeah, LotR is one book that is roughly the size of tSR or any single, large WoT book. And that was 12 hours. With stuff cut out. PS Not that I don't want a film. The nature of WoT makes it highly appealing for the big screen. I just hope Universal/Red Eagle/Whatever make a decent EotW.
  8. Whereas Galad viewed it as selfless. He viewed it as giving up himself for the greater good. Plus, Galad was ordered (I think? can't remember).
  9. It would have certainly made her arc completely and utterly boring otherwise... I find it weird how you assume that because she died, all her prior actions were pointless. Plus, if her death wasn't needed for something she wouldn't have been the only main character to die (and by main, I mean 5 EFs, Moiraine, Lan, Thom, Min, Aviendha and Faile).
  10. Lews Therin probably suffers from the same overconfidence that the rest of the AoL channelers (i.e him and the forsaken) seems to have in this age, so the likelihood is he was talking out his arse. EDIT: Also, who was in that circle of 3? I can't recall.
  11. Ah, I see. Well, I tried to look around, (mainly using the wiki for dreams and viewings) and didn't see anything that may have referenced. However, I am led to believe there was both foreshadowing in ToM and early on in aMoL, though I can't remember exactly. It's difficult to tell with Min's viewings, because as I said, Min doesn't see Egwene at all for a huge chunk of the series. So yeah, not sure how well her death was foreshadowed prior to Brandon taking over the helm. But then again, I doubt something of that magnitude would be left out of RJ's notes (but I could be horribly wrong here).
  12. See, that doesn't actually address the issue people have - it's not that you need to keep writing after RJ's last words, but you can put something more between the Last Battle and RJ's ending. The Cadsuane scene actually proves that point - the story still ends with the scene RJ wrote, with his words, but we are given something more, a glimpse of the future. Rather than leaving us with nothing more from Cadsuane (directionless for the time being) and the WT (directionless in the absence of an Amyrlin), it sets up the next Amyrlin. The world still exists, things still move forward, the story en
  13. I don't recall exactly how viewings worked, but it seems that Min wasn't ever really around Egwene post aCoS, meaning that she would never had been able to see any new viewings that would have implicated her death. And we never really got her seeing much besides related to Siuan/The Seanchan in aMoL. (Feel free to correct me if wrong).
  14. I disliked the manner of Siuan and Gareth's deaths too. To be honest, I would have much preferred if they had died when Demandred and Shara arrived and blew up the command tent. That struck at me much more than there eventual death. The only good thing about Siuan's death is that is has a parallel to the way her father died (or whoever it was that died in the anecdote she talks about with Mat in tDR). However, Egwene's death does have much more meaning and it also makes sense. At least to me. See: Terazed's post: Perhaps we are getting confused as to the order of importance o
