  1. I agree with the above, slate would be a horrible stone for a spearhead. You'd honestly be better off just sharpening the end of a wooden pole. Maaayyyybbeee for an arrowhead, as they are generally a one-time-use weapon... but definitely not a spear. I posted in another thread, but to consolidate here: Description of circles/linking from Pevara: "Men require women to form a circle," Pevara said. "In fact, a circle must contain more women than men except in very limited cases. One woman and man can link, as can two women and one man, as can two women and two men. So the largest we c
  2. My apologies if these have already been posted but a few issues that came up for me while reading: 1) Is it just me or was the description of linking butchered? 2) Isam's POV didn't make sense to me. Luc was raised in Andor, and Isam was born in Malkier. Agalmar's story indicated after his mother's failed attempt to take the throne for Isam, Trollocs took Malkier and she fled south with Isam. Is it possible that she then double-backed and headed directly into the heart of the blight, close enough to see the Mountains of Dhoom, to raise her child amongst a village of twisted Aiel? U
  3. iirc the White Tower was built after the breaking, and should elevators have existed before and made it through the breaking to be built into the tower, why wouldn't they still exist now? Also, elevators exist in current times, they don't use the OP. They use electricity :)
  4. How about we just agree that anything involving the wonder sisters is dumb. There's a reason thier incessant bumbling is generally considered the worst part of the series (comparable only with the 4 books worth of Faile's captivity).
  5. The original post is the exact same arguement I had with a friend. The interactions with Sleete make it seem like Gawyn is better than Lan.
  6. Ya, I had always pictured the lines as straight, the comic one is good. I randomly stumbled across that pic on the WOT Wiki under Davram Bashir and figured I'd post.
  7. Not animated, but probably better than words.
  8. Hair grows from the roots, not the tips. Balefiring the tips off would not prevent the roots from growing. Debunked :)
  9. A horizontal line that slowing turns into a rectangular portal. I think of it almost like a wormhole, connecting two places to each other. You can look through the portal as if you were looking through a window into the destination. Once you cross, you can look back through to where you came from also like it's a window.
  10. Not exactly. He places their souls in new bodies. Ishamael died, but his soul was put into a new body as Moridin. Same for Lanfear into Cyndane, and Balthamel/Aginor into Aran'gar/Osan'gar. If Rand were to die, his body would be permanently dead (save balefire undoing his death). That's not to say he couldn't be transmigrated into a new body. This is actually a much discussed theory (search Fisher King). Given Rand is missing a hand, has 2 unhealable wounds in his side, has the black madness thorns (albeit covered by the white 'shield') etc, it's believed by many that he will need a ne
  11. Here's another one for you. What if Mat's quasi-death by Rhavin (undone by balefire) released his link to the Horn of Valere, and it can now be blown by someone else? What if Tuon blows the horn and takes command of Hawkwing and his army? #ijustblewyourmind
  12. It's very similar to Moiraine's 'lie' at the start of EotW. "You may call me Mistress Alys". This is intentionally deceptive, but technically not a lie.
  13. I'll be honest, I only skimmed quickly through the post (holy wall of text) but just something to keep in mind... I seem to recall reading that RJ said Balefire burns someone from the pattern and makes them unable to be 'resurrected', but it does not prevent the pattern from re-creating the individual when their age comes back again.
