  1. That's almost exactly what I said. Focus on the characters and their interactions. The battles I mentioned are key events to work storylines towards. For TV, right or wrong, the audience is going to expect something spectacular at the end of a season, and that's where the big battles come in.
  2. Going to copy something I wrote a couple years ago regarding the transition to a TV series: Toughest part about trying to discuss the potential TV series is balancing what I personally want to see (a very close adaption with corresponding huge budgets to accommodate everything) vs what actually has a chance to happen. For example, some combination of Nyn, Egwene, Min, Siuan etc can be cut or combined. But to me, that would lose so much of the WoT feel. First and foremost I want the characters and their relationships to be carried across to the TV
  3. I think a lot of people are underestimating the amount of streamlining that the camera and a set of actors can do vs a book. For example let's just take EoTW: Ep1 - Prologue through saddling up to leave Winespring Inn. Ep2 - The ride out of Emond's Field - Leaving Baerlon Ep3 - Baerlon - escaping from Shadar Logoth Ep4 - Rands/Mat/Thom to fleeing the fade at WB. Ep5 - Perrin / Egwene to being captured by the WC + Nyn/Lan/Moiraine preparing to rescue Ep6 - Rescue of Perrin/Egwene + Rand/Mat to Caemlyn Ep7 - Time at Caemlyn to leaving via the ways Ep8 - Ways + Fa
  4. Feels good to be back on this board. Toughest part about trying to discuss the potential TV series is balancing what I personally want to see (a very close adaption with corresponding huge budgets to accomodate everything) vs what actually has a chance to happen. For example, some combination of Nyn, Egwene, Min, Siuan etc can be cut or combined. But to me, that would lose so much of the WoT feel. First and foremost I want the characters and their relationships to be carried across to the TV screen. It's what made WoT so engaging and long lasting. We knew how the characters t
  5. So true. Love the theory. It's gotten to the point where I'm going to be thouroughly dissapointed if Demandred is not actually hiding amonst the Sea Folk. It's the little things I like so much about this one. Explaining Bashere's absence and the random servent with the Sea Folk parasol are perfect tidbits that are easily missed (heck, I just got to this part in my re-read literally yesterday, and thought nothing more besides how odd they were,) and something I can easily see RJ doing. And honestly, explaining the Machin Shin issue via windfinders or Bowl of the Winds is perfect. So
  6. Mat/Leane (Post stilling and healing) Perrin/Min Tuon/Shaidar Haran (Hey, if she really doesn't want to see channeling weaves...)
  7. Of any predicition I have ever read, this is near the top of things I want to see happen. If there was another book or two left after AMoL, I'd even say it's remotely possible.
  8. Moggy needs to die facing Nynaeve, with Mogs trumpeting her superiority, thinking that despite being near equal in strength, she has all her years in the AoL to fall back on, etc. etc. Then Nyn casually balefires her out of existence like swatting a fly. Fortuona refuses Rand and Mat's offer of truce and refuses to give up damane. Mat comes to his senses and realizes there are plenty of better women for him, ditches her, and Fortuona is subsequently overwhelemed by half a dozen simultaneous assassination attempts. Much of the Seanchan end up killing each other or die via shadowspawn, es
  9. I have no idea what the implications of that would be, or if it even works story wise, but that would be unbelievably awesome. Maybe a little late in the series for such a revelation, but still, would be fun.
  10. Lan, Rhurac, and the big 4 Aiel Wise Ones. Plenty of others I'd like to see survive as well, but of all characters, I see Lan and at least one of those five Aiel as the most likely to die and stay dead. Really hoping they all make it.
  11. Elayne's political arc probably would have benefited from being cut down. My biggest gripe (well, maybe besides the Sea Folk being Aes Sedai clones of the sea,) is tPoD. Take the first few chapters of that, the end of the Bowl of Winds arc, and make it the conclusion to aCoS, ending with Avi, Elayne and Birgette's escape from the Seanchan and gateway explosion. That would have put a more definitive end to aCoS then the 'wait, what happened to Samael?' ending. And honestly, the rest of tPoD could have been combined with Winter's Heart, fluff removed, and the combined book been better. (P
  12. Yep, currently on LoC. This may sound a little strange, but I actually forgot just how good tEotW is. Still not as good as the series best, but can really give them a run for their money. (If memory holds for the rest of the series, I'd rank it fifth.)
  13. Would love to see this. Nyn would never do it, but it would be epic.
  14. Without giving it much thought... Moggy: Nynaeve seems fairly straight forward. Lanfear: I'll go out on a limb and say Moridin. The end of TOM was probably a ruse, but I can see her go all 'join me Lews Therin and together we can crush the DO and rule all!' Followed by Moridin promptly showing up and crushing her mindtrap. (Someone mindtrapped is going to die via it being crushed, just seems like something that has to happen on screen at least once.) Graendal/Hessalam: Not expecting much here. I feel like her story is pretty much up, she'll essentially be slightly significant
  15. Rand dies. Perrin dies. In a last ditch effort, Nynaeve and Moraine force Mat to go to Shayol Ghul to confront the DO. Turns out the hat Lanfear sold Mat in TSR makes the wearer a movable True Power buffer, making the very channeling of the TP impossible. The DO, unable to attack, challenges Mat to a dice off for the world. Mat wins and sends the DO away to chill with the Aelfinn and Eelfinn. Their aversion to the shadow causes their world to collapse upon itself, killing them and DO.
