  1. As a follow up: I'm on Chapter 5 of book two (The Great Hunt). Possible Spoiler ahead. In it there's a company of 2000 whitecloaks marching through Tarabon. When Bornhald asks a Questioner why this is, he replies "There are towns and villages across Almoth Plain with none in authority above a mayor or a Town Council. It is past time they were brought to the Light." Since they don't have real authority, this sounds to me like a band of militia going around passing judgement and carrying out severe punishment on whomever they want. Here's what I don't get. There's no one
  2. Thank you. This helps make more sense of these players.
  3. Hi, I'm a new first time reader of WOT. Finished book one and am 5 chapters into book two. I'm trying to keep track of all the players and who is on whom's side. One thing that I don't understand is where the white cloaks get their authority from. Are they sanctioned by a king/queen? Are they self appointed police of the world and simply bullies that go around en masse (might makes right)? Are they law? And the Aes Sedai, where do they get their authority? It seems like some people think them good and others evil. It seems like the queen respected their them? Do they have any
  4. Hi, I'm just started reading WOT. Since none of my friends have read it, and I don't want to google anything to spoil anything, I signed up here to ask and discuss the book at the point of where I am. Have a great day. --Joey
