  1. Love your passion ! I see it a lil bit differently though. Laman cut down the Avendesora tree and made a throne out of it, a very very dishonorable thing to do, Aiel are pissed and they are coming for him. but he’s a king, so he tries to protect himself with his army(s) if the army stood aside the Aiel would have just killed Laman and gone home. from the Aiel point of view, the wetlander Army(s) did the dishonorable thing and tried to protect the Tree Killer. Therefore they are all teee killers. They have no honor and should be treated as such. Some nations came to Lamans aid, but the Aiel kept going till they captured and killed Laman. Then they went home. in their mind everyone from Cairhein stood in the way of their mission to kill Laman, and they are nearly as bad as Laman himself.
  2. Elaida Liandrin Gawyn honorable mention goes to Faile
  3. I think it’d be interesting to have the stories reorganized into individual books that exclusively followed 1 character from the beginning of their story arc to the end. a fun way to re-read the series. all the appropriate chapters gathered and combined into one book. Or in some cases, a series of short stories when following various minor characters. Thoughts 🙂 ? who’s arc would you most want to have a complete read through of?
  4. It’s part of establishing different cultures within the book to have the different hairstyles from different nations. I don’t know if they will do this in the series, keep the cultures distinct. I think they should because to me it makes the world bigger when there’s strange people from strange lands. And there really isn’t much “cultural appropriation” in the WoT So I think Nyneave will keep her one big braid.
  5. It’s interesting how humanity repeatedly comes up with the same story/character. Rand, Neo, Osiris, Jesus, and others All Born simple, they do magic stuff, they battle evil and become the savior of humanity, they die and come back to life. Its a great story outline, we love it.
  6. Although crossroads of twilight is the agreed upon worst, and I agree too, I have a feeling about ol’ book 10.... I think RJ was living in the world he created for that book. Meaning he made it a lil mundane on purpose. it’s a lull in the action, the calm before the storm, another good name for the book would have been The Eye of the Storm, because it’s calm in the eye, but you know the rest of the storm is coming. The story isn’t really advancing in any major ways. This book is for drinking in the culture and politics and people of this world, it’s like a slice of life in the times of the day. I think RJ loved his world and took the chance to live in it for a bit by writing Crossroads of Twilight. There should be an abridged version of this book that’s just 200 pages long, for 1st time readers and those looking to keep the action going on re-reads.
  7. It’s not the same thing, there needs to be different language for this kind of “rape”. Itd be as if the only word for murder was assassinate. When a bug is stepped on its assassination, when the leader of a nation is killed its assassination. When a dog is hit by a car it’s assassination, when your friend kills themself it’s assassination. See we consider them all as different cause there’s different words for the different types of murder because it matters. i don’t see why there isn’t the same thing with rape, it’s a heinous word because it includes the most heinous versions of the act. That same heinousness should not be applied to a situation like Matt’s. new language is needed.
  8. While re-listening to the Great Hunt I was at the part where Lan tells Rand about their ancient power wraught swords and i was thinking... is it possible that Rands 3,000 yr old heron mark blade is also Lews Therins blade from 3,000 yrs ago? its not ever specifically said one way or the other, but I was thinking that it’s just the kind of thing the pattern likes to do. Plus at this point in the story all things that were the dragons are coming back to the dragon...
  9. Morainne would know if liandrin was channeling while it was happening. But she wouldn’t know what she was doing with the power, just the relative amount that was being used. And how far away they were apart would affect how noticeable it was. Sensing if the power was used in the recent past is only possible through reading residues, only a few channelers are able to do that. It’s a rare skill. someone will correct me if I’m wrong, but I think that’s how it is.
  10. DUMAIS WELLS !!!! I’m pumped, we are definitely getting it. Weather it’s 3 seasons or 6, we’re getting it. Plus if they can get the show to dumais Wells, it’ll get green lit for the whole series to the end. There’s just too much awesomeness in that scene to not continue the series. It’s pretty much one of the greatest chapters ever written. IMHO Now I just need to survive for at least 6 more years....
  11. Maybe Jordan did it to represent how a Matriarchy maintains discipline and Order..... they spank the children ! ?
  12. I think they could use flashbacks from the prologue and New Spring when Morainne, Lan, and Thom are teaching/telling the EF5(and the viewers) about the world, the past and themselves. This could be done while traveling from Eamonds Field to Caemlyn. It frees up needing to use the prologue for an opening scene while still being able to tell that part of the story early on. Therefore the opening scene should be a wind blowing out of the misty mountains, we follow the wind to where it blows past Tam and Rand traveling down the quarry road where we, and they, get a lil spooked by the black rider. Then the wind blows to Eamonds Field where it brushes Fain and we get a sense of him for a few moments before it blows toward Morraine and Lan, and then we follow things from their perspective, instead of the winds, as Morraine interacts with folks in town and at the Inn. Soon after that Rand and Tam arrive at the Inn. The intro of each episode should start with Lews Therrin creating Dragonmount. A quick scene of immense power destroying a screaming man and leaving a steep, massive volcano in his place. The scene fades to blackness then the opening paragraph that was in the books begins, A good speaker says the phrase we all love. “”The wheel of time turns and ages come and pass...etc...”. That can be said while a foggy mist swirls around or some WoT symbolism is displayed, or both, then the scene fades and the new episode begins.
  13. Make it horrifying. Trollocs need to come across like Demons from hell, The utter dispair one would feel facing an 8 foot tall, yoked, armed and armored, half human, who’s only goal is to make you suffer before eating you, needs to be palpable. They need to make that as realistic as possible. I want children to have nightmares when they see a Tolloc. Hell I want Adults to have nightmares when they see a Trolloc!
  14. That'd make even more sense then cause the horn would summon both of them from wherever they are and put them in the same mist/fog/cloud where they would then inevitably duke it out. For a Hero from the dream world, or possibly even a 3,500 Yr. Old Forsaken, the Horn summoning would make perfect sense & they'd know what is going on. But anyone living in the waking world, who is a reincarnated hero, wouldn't know about it at all, and the process of being summoned by the horn would be confusing. Hence Rands confusion, and ours since we are reading from his perspective.
