  1. Not a big fan of games based off of movies. If you've seen the movie, you know what is going to happen in the game. If they want to make a game out of it, I would like to see something more along the lines of LotR The Third Age RPG.
  2. In Perrin's instance, more than likely, a channeler could have used the OP to control the axe and make it attack Perrin. Not totally clear if it could be possible to make the King come out of the deck of cards or to make mirror images of Rand come out of the mirror and attack him. It is possible that Egwene was the only one who has thought of flying in TAR, it isn't as though there are a ton of people who can go there at will. Even among the Aiel there are only a handful of people who can enter TAR without a ter'angreal. And the AS still think that TAR is connected with the power so are constrained in what they believe can happen in TAR. They still think that you can't use the power to fly, therefore you can't fly in TAR.
  3. Then the channeler would heal or BF the mirror. Eqwene was flying because that is what she wanted to do. TAR is completely unrelated to the OP. She could have imagined a pot of tea, and drank the tea, but in reality she didn't because the tea was imagined. Same as when Elayne and the other AS went to the tower in TAR and got caught in a nightmare. The nightmare ended when that all believed that it wasn't real. Because it wasn't. The question about Rand was answered by RJ. It was the Wheel, not the OP. If you were the warder, why would you want the bond to pass to yourself? so you could point a finger and know in what direction you are located, no matter where in the world you are? I think I understand why you ask this, so that a warder wouldn't go on a suicide mission if his AS was killed. I suppose it could be possible, but why? As soon as you hold your own bond, you are technically not a warder anymore. Channelers cannot bond themselves because they can't use the weaves on themselves. You answered this in your first question.
  4. I think she means that the same Asha'man and Aes Sedai would bond each other. So each would hold the others bond, I guess. I have actually pondered this as well, but alas, I have not come to a conclusion that will satisfy me. :( I imagine that the result would be similar to any situation when two stubborn people have a relationship without either one having an advantage over the other. The best that I can come up with is that it shouldn't happen.
  5. Rand is not the Creator's avatar. He is the Chosen One, as in the Creator chose him to do his work, not to be him. And the DO's avatar would more likely be Shaidar Haran, hence the meaning of his name, "Hand of the Dark."
  6. not sure if I am remembering correctly. Didn't Rand, at the beginning of tDR, make the ground move and take out part of a valley in the MoM (thus changing the landscape), before he learned how to control Saidin? He couldn't control how much of the power he was drawing and had to unleash it somewhere. Possibly something the insane men would do during the breaking? Pull too much of the OP and have to throw it somewhere, anywhere?
  7. What I would like to happen and what will happen are two completely different things. What I would like to do is take my time with the book, I find myself skimming parts that start to drag (smoothing dresses, arched eyebrows and hair pulling). What will happen is that I will speed through the book. Kind of like the cookie monster. Most of the cookie gets in his mouth, but a lot of crumbs fall along the way. However, it is the crumbs that I miss that makes the second and third reads so special.
  8. You don't cross the streams. That would be bad. Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light. Total protonic reversal.
  9. when moridin reflects that he is channeling the TP exclusively is not because the TP is more powerful, but because he can't touch saidin without getting sick (like rand) because of the link.
  10. When Perrin reaches out to the wolves in LoC. They have caged Shadowkiller.
  11. That is my argument. Those sections contribute absolutely nothing. I assume that RJ knew that was going to be covered in the following book (and IIRC they were in the previous book as well) and wanted to spare us re-reading the same scenes again and again.
  12. I guess I don't understand what we are supposed to see in a peek of him. He isn't doing anything related to the story. Are we supposed to have a chapter of him hobbling around looking for Olver, only to find him snuggling up to a buxom maid and listening to her tell him stories and having Mat wonder which of his "uncles" he learned that behavior from? Are we going to see another scene with with Mat and Tylin with him muttering about having to wear lace and that HE is the one who is supposed to be chasing Tylin, and then Setalle Anan sniffs in the background? What a waste of a chapter that would be. Honestly, I would be more upset if that was the only chapter that I was able to read about him. I would rather he have not been in the book, than been in the book and contributed absolutely nothing.
  13. I don't know about insane, that could just be considered his conscience speaking to him. I think that the first time that I noticed LTT might be rearing his ugly head was during the fight in the Stone, against the Trollocs. Rand is speaking with Lanfear and he says something to the effect of~ You were always in love with power! I thought that was LTT memory.
  14. I actually thought that could wrap up that love story rather quickly..... The spurned lover, Aldieb, kills Bela and Mandarb in a jealous rage, then kills herself. The classic murder/suicide.
  15. He can't. Rand's soul and LTT's soul are one and the same. The DO would have to split the soul in order that to happen. I don't think we have any evidence that the DO can do that.
  16. Bored of the Rings was a fun read. I think a parody of WOT would go over well. I would read it. I like Lame Assdragon, that nigh got me rolling!
  17. I am on my third read through and just started tEotW. I just got to the Four Kings chapter last night but haven't finished it. I was going off of memory on that part. Is that the last time that Rand feels the "sickness"?
  18. That's why he gets almost immediately sick after the flash of lightning in Four Kings (I think)? I just didn't think that the first two (the whitecloaks incident and the sitting in the crows nest incident) would be considered sickness.
  19. It is well known that one of the first (if not the first) time Rand Channels happens during the flight from the Two Rivers and he heals Bela, so she can keep pace with the rest of the horses (which makes me wonder why Rand didn't feel the sickness from touching the source that he feels later in the journey, or is that sickness related?). In Baerlon, he is confronted by the Whitecloaks after laughing at them after one of Mat's pranks. In his POV he is talking to the Whitecloaks, but can't believe what he is saying, like someone else is speaking for him, standing up to the Whitecloaks, almost instigating a fight, until the Watch comes along. Rand holding the Power or Taveren Effect? After the flight from Shadar Logoth, Rand, Mat and Thom jump aboard the Spray. A Trolloc jumps to the rail behind Rand and is about to bash him when Rand screams, "NO!" and suddenly the boat lurches and a boom swings across the deck, knocking the Trolloc off the rail. Rand Channelling or Taveren Effect?
  20. For BS sake, I hope that he only writes this one. I am sure that he has his own stories and his own ideas that he would like to tell to leave his own stamp on this genre. I doubt he wants to be "he who follows after" and becomes known as "that guy who finished RJ's series." I for one am glad that it is coming to an end. Long awaited.
  21. I suppose the easiest answer is that the Butcher didn't play a big enough role on the story to be mentioned..... but what's the fun in that?
  22. wouldn't it be a jo-car? How about a sho-wing?
  23. I wouldn't be too sure about that part. Elyas has spent a long time running with the wolves. I'll bet Loial has a pretty hairy ass as well
  24. I wonder if Randland is going to have as hard of a time switching to the metric system as we Americans are. I was in third grade when we started learning the metric system. It was supposed to be this great thing and we would be better for having learned it. Well, I learned it (I'm an engineer, of course I learned it). It has been more than 20 years since I was in third grade and the last time I checked, I still have to buy milk by the gallon. Lame.....
