  1. WoT is finished.... WoT is this.... I'm just going to say that this attitude on this forums of this is how it all is and now you just have to accept it is deplorable..... I al lament hte fact that WoT seems to have to exist in such a weird context... For one, it's written in South Carolina using the old system meant to deal with African slaves of the 19th century.... Tnat is reprehensible, though it's couched in a number of differnt ways that make it obscure..... Secondly, the author died and that has made everyone uneasy and blame has gone out, and also taken by many anti-fans to mean the end of the series... which may hae threatened their ego or soomething at some point now they know definitively X character is gone or something it has been game of Throned. Third, it has not now been awhile , or rather now been awhile 1990 to now 29 years is a long time for this book.... So people have forgotten it or never heard of it... and finally now the TV show which has rressurected not the enjoyment of the series but veiled excuses to talk about issues 1-3.... how depressing. Even on this forum there are many who would still say ah but this is an enviromnment where I can talk down to X Y Z and they have no co choice this is crazy... such people or persons are formulating their e response to this post as we speak. This is what I would propose..... Lets not using every piece of popularity with the series etc to push a point... as all that happened in this thread.... Secondly no more 19th century garbage from America, please, thanks. Third, even though Wheel of Time has techniacally finished many changes could be made at many different points and should be made as the series interruption has to do with geo politics really and not other things. This place should be a place to 1. Bring fans of the series together, because they WANT to be here and are supportive. 2. Discuss the theories and series points in an environment which is constructive and open to criticism or cah change. 3. Listen to the news/new ideas with excitement but not having it all be destroyed either because one person doesn't like it or something hast o to control conversation. Then we can stop saying well there is good here but but but, we can just say Wheel of Time is a great series that has just begun in a sense, begun to bring in new fans, begun to be recognized, begun to be a part of something other than well you are one of those types produce a masterpiece for us with your life sort of deal.... Edit: One other thing I want to add is what occurred is most everyone of a certain point whe went int he Harry Potter route that is to say that became the series for nerds to follow as it simply didn't exist in the WoT spectrum of 19th century issues..... Not one person wanted WoT really..... Because in Harry Potter there isn't all this... negativity.... However, one issue is that Harry Potter isn't for everyone the characters are unique and WoT offers diversity in this respect. I propose however simply that Harry Potter and WoT exist together, both for people who want different things can get them. Different types of magic for different types of wizards.
  2. On.... er... none.... One of hte gigfts of RJ universe is that characters have this transparent introduction amk makes everything easy to see/understand.
  3. the later it is the less reason to bother.
  4. Finally yes the sereiis is tragically altered by rapid shifts in the intensity... The first one is straight and suffers a bit for it. 2-4 go much quicker for example.
  5. Perrin's incredibly interesting because he is a heroic defender of his faith/values without resorting to violence it's atypical in fantasy series for the most part..... Although as we know he does occasional use violence... it's essentially a primitive tribal ish religino almost. Mat's the complete opposite.
  6. Ok here's the thing... this could definitely rbing attention to the series which is good.... But there's no way it would honor the books which already don't even honor themselves.... So I think it should go ahead and basically introduce everything about it, make money, revive the series in a minor way... And then that minor revival can ideally pave the way for really doing the series justice. that's my 5 step or so plan.
  7. Almost anyone could have conquered Randland as poeple call it at almost any time... pretty much anyone except rand. It's a familiaar issue in fiction at times which is the all conquering super hero figure is presumed some kind of equivalent world level power and so on when that's just not the case... WoT consists of a large place with a vast amount of interactions between different people... and it's clear after The fall of tear that even though Rnad possesses a great deal of magic and power and allies it's no better than faction for getting people into and out of trouble and bad situations... which is altogether pretty neat on it's own.
  8. Rand is absolutely 100% the creator etc... it's likely none of the v events major or minor would have occurred without the Two Rivers scenario... it's pivotal to everything that comes after from the POV of the books. There's a chance you could argue that the world is self-sustaining without him... but it wouldn't have existed without him either so the point is moot.
  9. He is not everyone's least favorite character.. in fact overwhelmingly prefered to Galad for ex easy.. by myself.
  10. What to keep: The idea of a wheel of time TV series What to drop: This particular wheel of time TV series.
  11. I want to say first book 11-12-13 or so. Can't remember waiting on any.
  12. She really didn't honestly... repeating myself but Mat's just a mistake IMO .
  13. An RJ specific thing we never really got learn what would of happened.
  14. Tar Valon is just yet another example of writers/geographers/etc people who do this going all insane and weird over unusual geography like sounds, inlets, islands with a rock in the middle in a river etc.... Out of all the things on the map it's the only thing that caught my attentionf or being strange... but not for this reason.... Like if you try and read a description of Seattle and the surrounding areas it's like 4000000000000000 pages of people just flittering about because it's so unique, it's an odd phenomenon I've found.
  15. It will be a big waste of everyones time because the book series really isn't finished itself, which I know doesn't answer these e questions.
