  1. Check out my blog! Lets get the Wheel rolling!

  2. Mazrim Taim is one of my favorite characters of the entire series because he is a free thinker! Remember when he first meets Rand? They are discussing the Dragon Prophecies and Taim talks about them just being words. He says that any person could fulfill them and suggests that maybe they aren't as set in stone as people think. I like that. Honestly, I think Taim is his own man, with true allegiance to none other. I think he has his own agenda. If I wanted anyone to start a country of freemen in Randland, I would want it to be Taim. He is a philosopher as well as a Free Thinker and is willi
  3. Thanks for the clarification, Suttree. I need to re-read the part about when the bond was first created. Do you remember where it is? Also, one point I want to make is that I don't think bonds have to be forever. All it takes is one channeler, male or female, to discover a weave that cuts a bond and there you have it, no more problems with bonding! It is bound to happen eventually.
  4. For the longest time I have been wondering how to expand and give more life to the WoT series. If we as a community came together with Brandon Sanderson and his associates to make a sort of encyclopedia detailing the magic system in these books then that alone may make it more likely to be made into a movie, a video game, or have more books written by other Authors as well. Just think, we could make whatever we want with the Wheel of Time, as long as it is consistent and plausible! Who says that the Wheel of Time is really a wheel at all? Is that just a popular term people used f

  6. I agree for the need to have restricted freedom of those who want to go to the White Tower or the Black Tower to learn from those organizations. Yet, many times Aes Sedai take people against their will to the White Tower for training, almost a form of compulsion. It should always be a choice to go to the tower. Forcing someone to come along and train just because Aes Sedai think it should be so is arrogance and oppressiveness combined. Additionally, the system of governance within the White tower seems far too susceptible to Daes'Damar. It should be primarily an educational organization, not a
  7. There are three possibilities that come to mind. 1. Find some way to trap Fain and Mashadar in a vacuole. There he would need the one power to get out and would be relatively harmless as vacuoles are bubbles of space and time outside of the pattern, which could rupture at any time, destroying anything inside it. These were studied in the Age of Legends. I imagine the way to get Fain trapped in a vacuole would have him chasing Rand, Rand travels to the vacuole but leaves the gateway open, Fain and Mashadar follow, and then Rand opens another gateway behind himself to get back to Randland
  8. Hello, I am interested in applying but the deadline has passed. Should I check back again in a few months? I love writing and editing as well! AegisArcana
  9. The location of the responsibility or blame depends on how we define Ash'Aman. If that refers to male channelers who are members of the organization named the Black Tower, then yes, their actions reflect on the Black Tower as a whole and on the leaders of the Black Tower, namely Rand and Taim. The Black Tower has agreed to accept this man into its membership for the purposes of teaching and representation so effectively each member of the Black Tower is a representative of that organization similar to how each female Aes Sedai is a representative of the White Tower. However, we must not in
  10. I have, as of July 30th 2011, read up through the 9th book two times now. Between readings I had the chance of taking multiple philosophy classes and have gone through great personal change to my beliefs of freedom and respect. After reading the second time it is hard for me not to hate the White Tower and all of its "so-called Aes Sedai," as Moridin and many of the forsaken refer to them. I admit that the system of training Novices to Aes Sedai is useful, but it is largely oppressive. The arrogance of Aes Sedai pains me as I read the books. I understand that they want to ensure the su
  11. Hello everybody! I just finished the 9th book for the first time and am looking forward to reading the next four. I was kind of naughty and looked ahead to see what happened to Moiraine, but I could have guessed that anyway when I found out what the Dark One did to Lanfear. Oh, and I should not have spoiled the Tower of Genji either. I will have to wait 5 months and then read the next few books during winter break when I have forgotten all of these spoilers! I am excited for the last book and am considering what it would take to write about the Age of Legends. I hope a game comes
