  1. I saw Padan Fain as the wildcard of the 3rd Age. Perhaps every age has its wild card that can impact the war between the Light and the Shadow. Obviously, Fain had no impact with this turning of the wheel, but perhaps in other turnings he killed off major players of the Light, or even major players of the Dark.
  2. If you want to see a Wheel of Time tv adaptation, subscribe and watch. If people take the whole, "I hate Amazon so I'm not subscribing" mindset, you can forget about dvd/blu-ray because it won't make it that far.
  3. What makes you think it was occurring as he carried Moridin out of the cave, and not while still inside? Are you basing that on what Nakomi said about that being what he must do (swap body)? Because if so, I took her comment to mean he's doing what he's suppose to do with carrying the other body out.

  6. How often are they doing the previews? Does anyone know?
  7. Ah ok, you're both right. I guess just at that time of reading it it just seemed so unusual. But after thinking of it like that, it's not really all that surprising.
  8. I know, but to be able to throw a knife like that so accurately without having experience just seemed a little weird. I'm probably just looking way too far into it, but when I read it for the first time it threw me off a bit.
  9. Did anyone find it strange that Moridin killed Alanna by throwing a knife at her? It just seemed... Un-Moridinish to me, considering that he's a philosopher who just happens to be an extremely strong channeler. He's never been a soldier or anything relating to combat, as far as we know.
  10. To add on to this, he also confirmed that Nakomi's power in ToM was a power already established in the series. It wasn't some new element used to present a mysterious character. He wouldn't directly answer my question of whether or not Nakomi's power depended on whether or not Aviendha was asleep but just said her power was an established concept.
  11. There was so much going on that I doubt they even thought about a guard for Moridin's body. Here's the thing. If we assume that Rand was still in his own body when he left the cave, then it can almost be presumed that Moridin was in even worse shape since Rand had to carry him out. With Rand dying (his body), there wouldn't be much thought to watching over Moridin's body at first because he was in bad enough shape to begin with when Rand carried him out.
  12. I did read the Fountainhead a long time ago. In some ways I loved it, and in some ways I hated it. Atlas Shrugged is amazing.

CoT I must say though, the epilogue of A Memory of Light, regardless of what anyone might think of what happens in it, is still one of the best written endings I've read. I truly felt emotional after it and books don't do that to me.
  14. The Tea Party is Egwene and her rebel group. Elaida is Obama, Alviarin is Harry Reid, Biden is the equivalent to the third stone to the left of the door leading into the Red Ajah quarters.
  15. No wonder Moridin had to blast everything apart to get Lanfear's body out.
  16. Elayne frustrated me like crazy. I was and still am a big fan of Egwene. I really haven't been able to figure out why some truly despise her.
  17. In the past he has said that he chose to kill Hurin but for this panel, he said that he chose a major character and Hurin wasn't major so idk. I do feel that if it was Brandon who chose Egwene to die, he didn't do it out of randomness or what he felt was best. I'm sure RJ had it in the notes as a possibility and Brandon chose to kill her because it was a good ending to her arc. But yeah, I don't think we'll ever know.
  18. Upset so far in Andor region. The Eye of the World over Fires of Heaven? Really?
  19. there probably is no answer except that Harriet wanted a cover with Cadsuane so this is it.
  20. Discuss. And please, by the way, don't turn this into a RJ or Brandon bashing thread. Lets just discuss what you think RJ's strengths were with prose and his weaknesses. Thanks!
  21. RJ wrote the epilogue of AMoL, bits and pieces throughout, and some of the bigger scenes of TGS and ToM including Moiraine's rescue and many scenes of Egwene's in TGS. He also wrote a portion of the prologue from all three as well. All this is what has been confirmed.
  22. Eh not 100% quote but I think Terez has it in database because I told her when he told me but point two is almost word for word. I guess I better explain more. During the Q and A he said that there was a hint about Nakomi in AMoL so my question to him when I got to signing table was if the hint that he mentioned was when Bair (I think?) is talking to Aviendha early on in AMoL and she mentions Nakomi. He said that he couldn't tell but that what he would say was that she's in series for a reason and that she wasn't something he put in as some random person that was only there to be questioned by fans for years.That she was actually in there for a reason so I took it to be what I think many of us believe; he got indication in the notes that someone like Nakomi (prob named by Brandon) would fit in well near Tarmon Gai'don.
