  1. At first I thought Green, no question, since I love many of the things the Greens stand for, not the least being surrounded by good looking men. However, after some thought, I would have to say Gray. I think it could be just as action packed and potentially dangerous as the life of a Green, especially because those who end up agreeing to treaties are often those who are least interested in making them in the first place. So, Gray Ajah, with more than one Warder, to help me cut through the battle lines and protect me while I begin trying to bring about peace.
  2. I haven't read CofT recently, but on a parallel, one of the (many) things I love about this series is RJ's threads of connection between all societies, large and small. For example, in EOTW it talks about how the unmarried women will "dance the Pole" that day, and then in TDR Moiraine and Co. visit a village where all of the newlyweds danced the Pole instead. I don't have books in front of me right now so I don't want to list other examples without checking first, but a sociologist could have a field day writing up all of the connections. It may be just a general description, but who knows? Several times now I've skimmed through something, thinking it really didn't have anything to do with the story, only to find several chapters (or books) later that it's all tied together. This tangent is meant to communicate that I agree with both of you--the Kaensada may only resemble the Aiel in the general sense, but I also think RJ has put an incredible amount of thought into the smallest details, and I also wouldn't be surprised if we were to find out in the next book that there's more to it.
  3. I have read all of the books, though I've obviously missed a few things, especially if Rand AND Perrin AND Toveine have all had something to say about it. I'm off to do research! Thanks again for pointing me in the right direction!
  4. Wow, that's interesting. I have completely missed that. Is that all in Path of Daggers, or is it covered previously? Thanks!
  5. Greetings to all, I have been reading this site for quite a while but this is my first actual post. I did not find this on any previous thread, but apologies in advance, in case I missed something. So, with greetings AND apologies out of the way, here's my question: In Path of Daggers, Rand gets a message from Taim talking about the numbers currently enrolled at the Black Tower. At the end, Taim writes something like: "I harvested that blackberry bush myself. A small bush, and thorny, but surprisingly (fruitful??) for it's size." To what is he referring? Rand seems to understand what he's talking about, and although I've read the books several times I can't figure out the reference.
