  1. Had to laugh at this. Do you post on the 2+2 forums much ;D
  2. Yeah that and the big dome Rand made when he was fighting with Lanfear on the docks. Those were stationary though vs a shield that moved with the person. I've wondered about that too. I would assume it would work the same. If it stops rain drops which are matter then it should stop anything else physical unless it has a breaking point that is exceeded by the amount of force being applied.

    Love the books. Interested in the discussion of various theories about the mysteries. It's really interesting hearing from other readers who have completely different (and sometimes off the wall IMO :D ) ideas about things in the books. Like the Asmo thread. I had completely forgotten about him within a chapter after he died but it seems a hotbed for discussion in the community. It's kinda interesting for discussion but completely irrelevant. He's dead never to return. If he had slipped and broken his neck the end result, it seems, would have been the same.
  4. 120 pages! Wow. This is a crazy popular topic of discussion I have learned since finding these boards. I've read the books 3 or 4 times and always thought it was one of the Forsaken who did it. The thought of Moiraine or LF doing it has never even occured to me. But then I've never cared at all. It's one of those (many) things in the books that didn't seem to matter. He needed to exit the storyline and so he did. I wonder if RJ was even sure who he had do it when he wrote it? That's it! I know for sure who did it. RJ said it was obvious. It is. RJ killed Asmo :lol:
  5. Avi could easily be done without. Kadere could just as easily have told LanF that he thought he had slept with Egw and had her go into her tissy fit. They are not real people and sometimes their actions don't make perfect sense to me but they have to do them to make the intended story line come about. It would have been easy enough to have some random encounter between them look like a lovers quarrel or whatever to Kadere. Or he could simply mention that he's in love with Elayne in Kadere's hearing and RJ could use that as the basis for LanF's outburst. I personally like Avi but I don't buy for one second that you couldn't edit her out without losing a single important part of the overall storyline. I like the books just the way they are but it could work very well with a lot removed. The Senchan <-sp? could very easily have just done away with the Shaido off screen without any character involvement which would obviate the need to have Faile (and her subsequent capture).

    Hi I'm new. Name's Mike.
  7. Not sure how much oversight of the WOT RPG RJ had but flying is listed I believe as a lost weave or lost talent in the RPG. Oh and for everyone who says you can't lift someone while they lift you that doesn't apply. For it to it would indicate an Aes Sedai couldn't lift anything she couldn't physically lift. Using the power to move something has nothing to do with your own physical being. Otherwise if you tried to hold something back with air it could push you instead. Since it doesn't appear to, the weaves must not be physically connected to the channeler. Anyway it is fiction after all and if line of sight is the only limit to the range of weaves, lifting someone only so far is an arbitrary thing RJ decided to put into his books and that's that. Oh yeah, and because the Forsaken didn't know how to do it doesn't mean anything. They didn't know how to heal stilling/gentling either I don't believe. Could be wrong on this one.
