  1. The Broken Wolf is most likely Demandred. He is the only one that fits. You can see the 13th Depository for Demandred parallels to make more sense. Carlinya is killed by Black Ajah in ToM, by the Shadow. Which is associated by ravens. Fake Aiel are Fain's corrupted Whitecloaks. Not sure about the Tinkers. I think they were killed by Carridin's men. The message could be "Dragonsworn are killing people" but anything is possible really. Dark Prophecies are always tricky, by design I assume. But I think it is about Perrin and Lanfear. Not sure about the Toman's Head part. I
  2. 1) Um, that's not a question. 2) He's spun out, yes. But he is NOT Olver. Gaidal is 1-2 years old. 3) Those creatures are brought from the If Worlds by Portal Stones. They were used to eradicate the Shadowspawn in the Blight in Seanchan continent which is why Seanchan people don't believe Shadowspawn exist. They became just myth over time. 4) Mat's memories are from multiple people who went to Sindhol between Trollocs War and Hawkwing's Empire. Eelfinn dumped hundreds of people's memories into Mat's mind. 5) Simple. They don't want to be seen so they are not seen. Gaidal made a
  3. This feels like we're arguing about two different things man. Yeah, it was extremely weird there were male Ayyad among them. I never said otherwise. But what does that have to do with what I'm saying? There are no male channellers anywhere until the BT. Why should the presence/absence of male channellers matter at all? They are on equal grounds. Shara is as big as Randland + Waste. If we assume their population is the same as well, 400 is a ridiculuous number. If they have 50 million population in total, then they have 250.000 potential female channellers. How in the Light are they going t
  4. I don't necessarily disagree but the solution is very easy. Shara is as big as the Randland. They have been breeding channellers for the Light knows how long and they are battle-ready. They could easily counter however many channellers the Light had. The answer was not to make the existing channellers disappear, it was to balance the numbers. 400 was a ridiculuous number for Shara, and that is not even counting the Town. Not without men. Remember they'd have virtually no male channelers. And they would have lost a lot of the females to the battle to take over their land. At most they'd count
  5. I've read the crazy time travelling theories but I really don't think there was anything funny there. Aviendha was having problems with Travelling because she'd already discovered it in tFoH but she'd forgotten how she did it. Learning a weave in a second way is extremely hard and it usually doesn't work as well as the first method. She had to remember the gestures she made when she'd created her first gateway.

  7. Lol, what makes you think I claim to be anything of the sort? I only wrote what made sense to me. What actually happens in the book does not.
  8. Moiraine is another one. And Verin's letters was not intentionally left out. Brandon is acting like that was his intention so he doesn't look like a total fool in front of people during signings. He forgot them. Or else we would have had one sentence somewhere in the 900-some page book that referenced them at least once. As for Alanna - I disagree with you. The way her plot was handled felt like "oh crap I forgot about Alanna...brb gimme 5 min and ill fix it." I think it went more like "Notes say she disappears and ends up in the Pit of Doom. Hmm, how does that happen? Oh, screw
  9. TL;DR: Nuke Caemlyn, make sure channeler numbers are accurate, don't mess with the rules of OP too much and for the love of Light make sure the whole war takes no more than 200 pages. Tell us about the psychology of the war, not the mindless "Person X killed a Trolloc, then another, then another, Cauthon must be a genius, then another" My humple opinion of how the battles should have gone. First let's start with numbers. Mind you, I am excluding camp followers, these are fighting men only. The post is too long as it is so I'm not going to include my explanation for numbers. I think they are
  10. Ah, but all those different plotlines were about to be concluded after KoD, so the increasing pace was a given. RJ or BS or another writer, things were going to get a lot faster. That was not something Brandon brought to the series. He just came at the right time. I totally agree it would be an extremely hard job to conclude them and piece all of them together for anyone. But that is most definitely not the same thing.
  11. We see that argument a lot but I don't see how it's relevant. This is the ending, What else was going to happen? I could have written the book and the plot would have moved at a fast pace. You would not even use the book to put under your cup of coffee but things would have moved forward. I don't understand how that has much to do with the quality of the book considering where the series are.
  12. I have not read any of the posts after this, I'll go back to doing that now but I just had to comment on this review. It's complete BS, beginning to end, and that's not an abbreviation for Brandon Sanderson.
  13. Balefire is not the eternal death of soul, RJ confirmed that years ago.
  14. I don't remember if "vanish" was the word used. But whether by balefire or normal death, threads don't just vanish. Normal death means the thread is cut, it doesn't continue but that does not undo how the character affected the Pattern upto that point. If balefire is used, the thread burns backwards. It is very like using a lighter or a scissors on a thread of yarn actually.
  15. God! I am sorry to be rude but guys, what the hell are you talking about? Four books? Five? Six? After KoD, the series had plot material for at most 1500 pages. Do you seriously want to read more useless filler material like Hinderstap, and Gawyn's stupid mopping or mindless, repetitive battle scenes. Come on!
