  1. If critical influence on Rand is what determines who was equal to him, then Cads should be on top of the list. She somehow (inadvertently IMO) got Rand off being Dark Rand, if not for that one thing, Rand would have destroyed the world that there was absolutely nothing Egwene or the WT could have done about it. And as far as the scene at the WT goes, I agree with Rhienne, Rand got Egwene to do exactly what he wanted. What exactly did she resist? And Egwene did not have a plan, her only plan was not to break the seals at any cost. BS obviously saw that she was looking like a total douc
  2. Maybe I'm just odd that way - but I think it would absolutely be good for people in relationships to consider themselves equals. Egwene felt she could not let Gawyn be her equal, because of his place in life and tendency to express the sense of equality in public (unlike, say, Thom, Min or Lan, who would probably know exactly when to shut up and continue the discussion in private). But if Rand were her partner? Noone would be truly shocked if they rebuffed eachother in public, and neither would be undermined by it by book 7-8 or so. Only if you take away from the story that Egwene wanted
  3. I sold my Memory of Light copy to Amazon. I read it once, have no intention of reading it ever again.
  4. Correct but all of them understood where they stood with regard to their partners. Egwene always thought herself the equal of Rand when she was not. Gawyn thought himself Egwene's equal for a while and guess what happened Egwene nearly got killed.
  5. Egwene thought she was Rand's equal...mistakenly. They would never have worked in a relationship.
  6. If he did, his reaction was a lot different than wht we were exposed to for 13 books when a chaneller loses his/her ability.
  7. If RJ intended Cads to become Amyrlin,he intended Egwene to die.Doubt tht u can blame Sanderson for it. However the manner of death was real cheesy,tht I think was pure Sanderson.
  8. True especially when you had Egwene trying to spy on Rand on multiple occasions like the spoilt kid she is.
  9. Er, Egwene pillar is buried under rubble.No dragonmount there!!
  10. Of course he won't admit anything. His conception of the series depends on his idea that Egwene is a nobody. Why would something like facts change that? Nobody no, equal of Rand the DR in any shape or form?
  11. Rand has not heard the phrase, "embrace death" after staying pretty much with Aiel for the last 2 years? That would be quite a stretch considering that is a common phrase among the Aiel. We know she is not a hero because she does not show up when the Heros are summoned.Simple.Neither is LPD from the AOL AFAIK. And her life mirrored LTT. I know it is difficult for you to hear this but Egwene is a normal thread a normal soul. Her soul was never the equal of Rand's nor of any of the other heros. As for tugs from Rand, Perrin and Mat got them all the time and neither 2 of them are heros.
  12. Perhaps we are getting confused as to the order of importance of Egwene's accomplishments at her death. Actually it may be this scene which is the most important of her accomplishments in WOT. Rand's guilt list has been his tragic flaw throughout almost the entire series. In book after book characters have been arguing with him over it's unreasonableness but none have been able to argue successfully. In the beginning Rand tried to make himself hard and kill off his emotions. Later compassion led him to attempt to embrace the suffering of others. Even then some characters thought there wa
  13. Say what you will about RJ and his never ending no of characters and side plots..if he said there were close to 1000 Ashaman for sure 1000 AM would have turned up for battle for the light or against the light.Same for the Aiel WO's.
  14. Well said instead of making channelers mysteriously dissapear, BS should have increased the no if enemy channelers from Shara and had the channelers from each side indulge in a WMD style fight across countries leaving destruction all around.He could have whittled down channelers on both sides this way before leaving it to Mat to show his genius and win the LB. As it turned out leaving poor Andor, the rest of the south lands got off easy.Someone sitting in a remote corner of Tear or Illian would not even noticed that the LB is over and a new age has dawned. Imagine a massive OP fuelled batt
  15. Graendal must be killed as soon as possible.To keep her alive o get knowledge from her is a bad idea.If she breaks out she can cause havoc. But Moggy on the other hand can be kept alive,she is just incompetent on so many levels.
  16. Rand of course..the main character in the books and in whose name the Last Battle was fought.
  17. Saiden and Saidar are tools to use the source. The True power is seperate. If Rand can tap into the source without the tools needed which is Saiden and Saidar then it explains the pipe scene. However the only problem I have with it, is that this make Rand even more powerful that what he was in the third age when he was born for a specific purpose. IN the 4th age he has no role so why would the Creator or Pattern give him such an awesome power when he has no use for it?
  18. On the contrary, at the time both the White Tower and the Seanchan were parties to the Dragon's Peace. Any agreement between the White Tower and the Seanchan would be subsumed under the terms of the Dragon's Peace, meaning the Aiel are the ultimate arbiters of whether the terms of this subsequent arrangement have been met. If the Seanchan reneg on their agreement with the White Tower, and the Tower takes their dispute to the Aiel, the Aiel have the authority to judge the Seanchan faulty and use military force to press for redress, under the terms of the Dragon's Peace. Once the Dragon's Pea
  19. Agreement with Egwene has nothing to do with the Dragon's peace.
  20. OMG..Logain was not ordered by Egwene to break the god damn seals. Why do ppl keep repeating the nonsense again and again. An order can be given only by a superior. Logain was not ordered to do anything by Egwene nor did Egwene have the authority to do so. Does Egwene love have no limits for some people?
  21. Your theory rests on the fact that Seachan won't regain their homeland. I say because of the use of gateways,healings and other advanced weaves they learned from Elaida and will learn from Moggy they will regain their homeland quite easily The damane on the Seachan homeland know nothing about the new or the rediscovered weaves.Gateways by itself is an enormous advantage.
  22. Rand will not be able to abuse his new powers or abilities. nor will he want to.And he will not play an important role of infact any role in the fourth age.The pattern does not wish it. His role is over.He was a person of the third age now he just spends the rest of his life like an ordinary man. RJ lifted this straight from Eastern mythology.
  23. Let me see if I can boil it down for you: Army X and army Y are in a war. Neither is able to win against the other. Army X is at peace with other nations. Army Y is not precisely a nation, and while nominally allied with other nations, cannot violate their land, or use any of their resources. When they attack the holdings of army X, they need to use Gateways. They themselves have only one major city in a desert waste, and as such, while being brilliant warriors, don't have the logistical depth to defeat the other army. They hold on because of their extraordinary valor. Now, in an alter
  24. Impossible. Tuon never gave up her right to fight for Seachan. The more I think about the it the Dragon peace will lead to Randland's military capacity getting severely weakened over time while huge continents like Seachan(twice as big as Randland?) or Shara (as big as Randland) or the land of the madman will be fighting fit. Eventually they will make a move on Randland and roll the continent over. To be ready to fight you have to fight regularly.
