  1. I think Logain is a perfect character for the show to use for worldbuilding and storytelling. He gets sidelined quickly, but as others have said he is in a great position to show the audience about the world. His story cleanly transitions into the main plot and he doesn't steal the show, but he's also there for some important moments. I would love to see a focus on Logain in the show. As for baby speculation, I don't know. I think it could easily just be Rand on the slopes of Dragonmount, or any other simple explanation. There are babies in the story without giving Logain kids. But
  2. I'm 100% with you on that, Carebear. Atmosphere and suspense are what makes horror. If you pull that part off, you can also get away with the occasional jump scare and gruesome shot, and really make the audience feel it. It's a careful balance, especially for a production that has so many other elements. I think it's reasonable to predict that the horror won't be the primary focus in the show, but there will definitely be scenes that they want to make genuinely scary. If I was gonna do a Mashadar scene I would come at it from 2 angles. First I'd hammer home the idea that it's like
  3. It strikes me as a scene that would need to be changed as well. Horror is hard to pull off visually, and it's really easy to miss "scary" and instead just look silly. See any cheesy B horror movie as an example. Specifically for Mordeth's inflation scene, I think they'll need to do that differently or at least use a really light touch. I wouldn't be surprised if they took a very different approach to the whole Shadar Logoth segment compared to the books. WoT has a ton of challenging element to adapt, and the horror is just one of those challenges. I hope they lean on that stuff as
  4. I saw the ruby dagger yesterday and found out that the Wheel of Time is getting a big budget tv show... I was blown away. This is so incredibly awesome! It's hard to express how amazing that feels, but I'm sure you all know what I'm talking about. I remembered that I had an account here from years and years ago (which apparently has some formatting issues now lol), and I just had to revive it to come show some love ❤️ An adaption is never gonna satisfy every fan. I can only imagine how much pressure the artists are under, but it's gonna be amazing to see what they come up with. Thi
  5. Ha ha ha! Yes! Take a look at this discussion: http://forums.dragonmount.com/index.php/topic,26702.0/topicseen.html There are 2 parts to this theory: 1 - Be'lal could have been brought back, and 2 - he was, and is masquerading as someone else. RJ himself explains that 1 is true. It is very hard to make a case for 2. That quote is incomplete. Not good enough for me. But, we've gone over this already. I agree to disagree without wasting more time (unless you have something new to add?).
  6. Yeah, she died in the Renegade AM attack on the Royal Palace in Cairhien. Enaila, who was often paired with Somara, is still alive though (I think). Is it too much of a stretch to think that Enaila was also at the door to the meeting?
  7. I would love to see a fantasy movie where the music strays from the traditional orchestral style. Electric guitar, keyboard/synth, and other modern instruments and effects can create a totally unique and satisfying feel. If you played Half Life 2 or the new Metroid games, the ambient atmospheric electronic rhythms really fit well. I know those games are sci-fi not fantasy, but I think the style could work in a fantasy setting also. They have obvious classical influences, but modern instruments are added for a unique effect. The perfect example of what I'm talking about is the music fr
  8. Going back to the Amys thing, I don't think anyone mentioned that at least one other person could have known about the attack: Somara, the guard at the door. She is always following Rand around as his guard - the perfect place for a DF spy.
  9. What do the borderland rulers want with Rand? They are bringing all of their armies. That could mean that they want to attack him, but I don't think so. Considering the words and actions of the rulers in the prologue to tPoD, something else is going on: As for the 13 AS, Coladara Sedai, the adviser to Paitar of Arafel, became aware of the borderlanders plans and she suddenly gets 7 visiting Aes Sedai who tag along. Tenobia runs into 5 more Aes Sedai as she is leaving Saldaea, and they are surprised to see her there. Illeisien Sedai, their leader, learns of the borderlander's pla
  10. Lol, FotC is hilarious. Did you know that Bret was actually in the Lord of the Rings movies as an elf extra?
  11. I can see Mat or Taim with some hip hop in the background.
  12. The purpose of this thread is to discuss music which you associate with the Wheel of Time. Obviously different characters and nations in Randland give every reader a different feeling, and sometimes that feeling is shared with a musical genre, a band/singer, or a particular song. It could be the rhythm, the lyrics, or a personal association that you have, but sometimes music just seems to fit. Sometimes you can imagine a song being played in a tavern, or by a gleeman. However, even modern music that has no place in the actual setting of the books can apply, in your imagination, to the seri
  13. RJ said he was surprised at the Taimandred theories, so it wasn't a red herring. Sometimes I wonder if he flat out lied, and Taim is Demandred. That's impossible though...
  14. Oh please. "All the time" indeed. I don't think I would have been able to find it without your hint though, so thanks: http://theoryland.yuku.com/reply/201506/t/Second-Q-amp-A-Saturday.html#reply-201506 It's the 8th quote in Callandor's post: I guess that's another point for people who don't think Taim is Be'lal... :(
  15. Abit tough comparing "nazis" with Aiel(a culture that has been ongoing for 3000 years). Anyway, the nazis was hardly a culture. In that case you can name all sorts of things cultures. I was using "culture" to mean "social climate", not "civilization". Think "hippie culture" or "military culture". Does it really matter what they believed inside, if they acted as if they believed it? I wonder if some Aiel don't really believe in ji'e'toh, but just follow it to fit in?
