  1. As I understand it, you can do anything in the world of dreams, as long as you can picture it in your mind and you habve the will to put it into effect. So a dreamwalker especially a practised one e.g. lanfear or moghedien could do anything and more with their mind than they could with an angreal.
  2. he learn't some other quite useful stuff as well, like how to skim properly and how to make weaves invisible. I've always presumed Rand also learnt more about the forsaken and the Age of Legends which could be useful at some point. i think asmodean also could have taught him more about shadowspawn, such as gholam and darkhounds.
  3. Would it be possible to make a shield out of spirit which only keeps out weaves of the one power? What do people think?
  4. Thom or julian would be my pick, although tallanvor is high up in the running.
  5. Obviously wolves can kill them so they must be vulnerable in some way/area and wolves through expierience have found this weakness but men havn't. If this were the case surely perrin could discover the weakness of darkhounds and so make men more able to defend themselves against them. ?? Doesn't someone shoot a darkhound once with a bow?? Maybe not,
  6. Doesn't the green man say he new wolfbrothers before? When he meets perrin? and that it has been a long time since this? and I believe that someone (?) also says it was a gift older than the age of legends. (a bit vague) however if RJ said that then there's not too much to be said. True the Age of Legends does not have to be an age in itself. I wonder actually how people in randland even know if the wheel exists?
  7. Hum, wolfbrothers existed in the age of legends so this is hardly a new thing, and there is nothing to prove that no-one of mins abilities existed before it just hasn't been mentioned. I thought someone did mention somewhere in the books that the breaking was the end of the AoL, but can't back that up now so,
  8. Yep, cheers i see now, missed that completely.
  9. The fact that Darkfriends havn't really used the ways makes it more likely that they will try to now, surely? After all they would not expect rand to be prepared for it and so would try to surprise him, Demandred is reckoned to be one of the greatest generals of all time he will see this as a possible reason to use the ways to move darkfriends around if he thinks Rand doesn't expect it. I think this sums it up well. Where does it say shadow spawn can't travel through a gateway? I was wondering how they got into the Aiel waste to attack rand if they cannot pass through gateways?
  10. There seemed to be a fair few wolves when perrin attacked the Shaido in KoD? I think Slayer does, as the name suggests kill just for the hell of it, but perhaps there was a specific purpose behind him wiping out all the wolves in the two rivers. Perrin has comunicated with many other wolves since though incl;uding at Dumais wells (spell?) Did hopper actually turn into a darkhound? I thought he was just becoming more and more twisted but not nessecarily a Darkhound?
  11. His mother couldn't have any blood relatives in the waste not being aiel and rand being her only son born whilst amongst the race, she had no blood mother or siblings amongst the aiel. She did have wetlander relatives, Luc being her Brother and i think morgase is a relative, cousin or something? Janduin was the youngest Clan cheif ever I believe, and also led the 5 tribes across the spine of the world in the aiel war. He was killed by Luc in the blight, however it is very likely he had brothers/sisters amongst the Taarard and possibably rands grandparents could be alive on Janduin's side of the family. Although there is no mention of them.
  12. Um, surely most of the 'bad guys' can also travel? The forsaken and dreadlords, who most likely are putting in an appearance soon? As i understood it, only really ogier and Aes Sedai travelled the ways before they were corrupted anyway. Because the ways are organic it doesn't necessarily mean that they can heal themselves, just because the taint is gone. Machin Shin may possible be weakened but is now basically a living avatar of the DO's malice and hate. If one person gives another a virus they are still infected even after the source of the virus is destroyed in some cases like AIDS it cannot be destroyed. This is what I see happening to Machin Shin unless possibly someone asks the Finn people how to destroy it.
  13. Yeah, I'd say i read way to fast and tend to miss tiny little details without realisng but then that is what re-reads are for. :lol: In my house ihave massive amounts of books due to my bro and dad, both having a 'libary' each, well, a room full only of books and an arm chair. but i dont read many of these so have relatively few books of my own, although i have read through the school libary. Fiction section that is.
  14. Possibly, I think this could be due to the fact rand is the only son of a maiden ever known as such and so all the maidens seem to treat him as a brother. Also possible, but i'm not sure if Rhuarc and Janduin are of the same clan. Can't remember, help? However it is more than likely that Rand does have blood relatives amongst the aiel seeing as his father was a clan chief an all that.
  15. I think Gypsies are the model for the tinkers, they were once known here as bohemians and were famous for their dancing. The wagons and the bright non-cooridnated colour fits in very well with the old time gypsies, and in the UK today at fairs in appleby old gypsies caravan's and wagons can be seen in use. The gypsies are also similar to tinkers in that they were often hated by other folk and treated with distrust. However they would mend household implements as i believe the tinkers are mentioned doing. However in my expierience they were not non-violent and although would never attack others, would fiercly defend their own kind- not really very tinker. They also knew more about living off the land, animals and nature than any other group of people in the UK at least. Horsewhispering - talking/communicating with horses - has long been associated with them but not believed possible, however scientific thaught is changing and some scientists and vets believe some of these people can actualy communicate with horses today. Possibably part of what made people fear and hate them. Obviously it is impossible to verify if this is really true, an i'm still a tad sceptical. Does this really have any bearing on anything? :roll:
