  1. That happens in the books Sanderson wrote, however. I don't think that Jordan would have written anything like that. Since Sanderson took over the books, her character has changed for the worse. There is Jordan's Tuon, and there is Sanderson's Tuon, and they are not the same person. You shouldn't hold the deeds of Sanderson-Tuon against Jordan-Tuon. I really hate how she was thinking of breaking the Dragon's Peace immediately after. The entire Seanchan social aspect of "straight eyes" got thrown out the window. Tuon was Seanchan to the core, especially in this. She kept her promi
  2. They should've named this guy M'fail. He was decent at planning, plotting, and generally operating for the shadow for half the story, but his combat ability is almost nonexistent. Every instance of action he saw in the books showed him as inferior. Inferior to Rand, inferior to Demandred, and inferior to Egwene. It almost feels as if this guy was supposed to be designed with an inferiority complex. I was really annoyed when he lost to Rand with 13 channelers, even losing some. Armed with only the fat man angreal, Rand managed to retreat after inflicting losses, while Taim revealed the
  3. Neither of these characters are very good at combat with the power compared to any real combat based characters, it would mostly come down to luck. Assuming that the only things they would try to do are to kill/still/shield each other, whoever had the more creative/quick weave that was directed at meeting any of the objectives would win. Neither of these characters have been shown to be exceedingly fast with weaves like compulsion, and moreover Nynaeve has shown resistance to this weave, so that's out of the picture. Even Gedwyn almost killed Rand in his assassination attempt. Gedwyn/Rocha
  4. I doubt anyone faction in the White Tower realistically has enough influence to defeat Egwene on a matter like that. Even if Romanda and everyone who hates her guts were able to band together, they still wouldn't come close to the influence of Egwene's pocket faction + any Asha'man she brought in. Removing Egwene might not even be a desirable idea. There would be a higher chance of Logain becoming Amyrlin than someone like Romanda, especially if she just got rid of the popular Amyrlin. To be honest- if Egwene was able to outmanuever the entire Hall on the "no secret meetings" thing, I doub
  5. Or they could rot there left alone. Your statement about the Light being unable to win there applies to the Shadow as well. If the just wait inside FM they won't do a single thing, just rot. And if they get out, surprise. Exactly. There's absolutely 0 reason to fight the Shadow in a place where they can annihilate all of humanity's armies in battle without losing a single soldier. The only thing the Light stands to lose at FM are a nominal amount of soldiers and the Guardians.
  6. I want Dyelin to betray them. It would be awesome if she were a dreadlord among dreadlord, since Alviarin is too incompetent to lead the female dreadlords during LB.
  7. I don't think Far Madding will really be used as a staging point. There's a 0% chance for the light to win there, and therefore no point in fighting the Shadow. Shadowspawn could be carted in by the thousands by gateway and no one in Far Madding could do a thing about it. That's a place where 100,000 of the Shadow's soldiers could defeat every single human not sworn to the DO in the world.
  8. I wonder why Rand thinks he can blackmail everyone into agreeing to the Dragon's Peace. What else can he do if people call his bluff?He holds no cards there. Same as Egwene trying to stop Rand from breaking the seals. Well, he's got the Pattern bending around him, which he probably thinks is enough. Other than that, he has a reputation for doing stuff like letting the world die, and Egwene's not really in a position to call any bluff without the Seanchan. Thing is that the White Tower's real power right now is politics. Their contribution can be getting the Seanchan on the same boat
  9. I don't think it's ever been said that Seanchan is under anyone's control. Someone controls the city of Seandar, but there's still slaughter going on and red sailed ships destroying harbors and stuff. There are over 40 nobles on the field declaring themselves Emperess/Emperor. I don't think they'll stand united against the re-Return, it may be more like the consolidation.
  10. I'd say she's much more standable than Egwene, and Egwene's more standable than Couladin or Sevanna. Couladin and Sevanna were the couple from hell. Skinning messangers alive, beating naked women and keeping prisoners like trophies, treating Wetlanders like cattle while considering adopting their worst practices like noblity. What annoyed me most about Sevanna was that she was actually a spoilt, worthless gold digger and she managed to almost unseat the Dragon, outwit the Aes Sedai, and slaughter the Light's forces with her underhanded gossip's bullying and backstabbing skills. If the
  11. I think Egwene realizes that the White Tower is nowhere near powerful or relevant enough to effect Rand's plans. The only faction that near rivals Rand's forces are the Seanchan who control great military strength and supposedly a vast population if their holdings across the sea can be counted, but they don't really have a spot in Rand's heart. The Aiel probably are closest to Rand now, but they'll allow him to do anything to meet their destiny. I think Egwene's going to pull off one of here feats of politics (or lolplot whatever you want to call it) and actually make a united front to challen
  12. I hope their number goes back up to 13 for the final battle and they are once again the shadow's 13 most powerful "Chosen." The shadow's forces consist of millions (at least a million per borderland if Maradon is any estimate, plus whatever's going through the ways and waiting at Shayol Ghul, but there aren't many names and stories behind them. We have Demandred, Taim, Cyndane, Moggy, Moridin, Isam, maybe Alviarin, Taim and superfade. Not enough glory to go around, in my opinion. I can see people like Taim. However, I can't see any Black Ajah joining the ranks, unless it's a lesser known o
  13. I think it's Roedran because of the golden pipe vision and Talmanes' golden pipe gift from him. I wish it was Sylvase Caeran though. That would be hilarious and awesome.
  14. There are plenty of ridiculous forces in WoT like the Aiel, Borderlanders, etc, but I think the Seanchan are probably the most realistic army in the series. I really don't think that the Seanchan have a million native Seanchan soldiers or anything. The Forerunners wouldn't have to be very large. They could easily crush the strongest westland kingdoms like Andor with 20,000, 30,000 men due to their superior commanders, soldiers, animals, and damane. All they need do is defeat 1 kingdom, recruit men, and snowball out of control. It'd be on the same scale Napoleon built his forces through con
  15. Gawyn because his entire arc is about his worthlessness and most of his conflicts are caused by him being absolutely worthless. I don't understand how a man can feel so lost and ineffectual without shrinking and shriveling into a prune. Perrin because his mental conflict could/should have been solved in 1 event, rather than him going back to the cradle after learning how to walk. His companions are the best written other than Matt's companions though, so his parts aren't absolutely unbearable. Egwene because she's a BDSM loving woman surrounded by a mass of idiots who spend half their
