  1. RJ retconned Alrics death, saying that he did not die immidiatly, so Siuan did not notice anything. As for using inverted weaves, surely someone would have noticed that someone was using a weave that noone in the room could even see. Sounds more like RJ made a mistake. The main reason to suspect Danelle of being up to no good (and later when RJ mentioned we had seen Mesaana, make that connection which at least some here did quite early :) ) is her involvment with the masons. And in a longer perspective, her being a key player in the coup, only to fade away onto obscurity quite soon after.
  2. The way you worded this, you make it sound like the Dragon kneeling prophecy is in the Essanik cycle. It isn't. It's in the Seanchan version of the Karaethon Cycle. We don't have any evidence within the books that the Essanik Cycle has been tampered with. Our evidence that the Karaethon Cycle has been tampered with is that one or more of its' prophecies is different than the Randland version. (Namely the one you mentioned about binding the nine moons vs. Rand kneeling). I could have phrased it better, true. But, the key point remains - We can not with the information available know with
  3. The Essanik cycle is unique for the Seanchan, as it is made from Damane Foretellings. Parts of it are corrupted, but we do not know which parts. I am one of those who elieves the part about Rand kneeling to Tuon is something ishy changed, but there is no way of knowing for certain. Especially since even if that part is fake, it can still happen, if Tuon insists, and Rand decides he needs the Seanchan enough. Aside from the Essanik Cycle, the Seanchan also has a version of the Karaethon Cycle. No way of knowing how much that one differs from the original, Ishamael might have been playing aroun
  4. They don't have internet, so they have very few people who disagree for the sake of disagreeing. :)
  5. Mat has spent a fairly large part of the books trying to avoid that kind of action. How has that turned out for him? :)
  6. Tuon is their empress now, not just the empress of the return. Provide me a quote that says otherwise. @Maj - Okay I forgot about Seanchan already being at war, my bad. But to say Fain hasn't thought about Mat is not accurate. He has thought about all 3 ta'veren, just that he has mostly been focused on Rand. I mean, when Rand was out of his reach at the time, he jumped with the whitecloaks to the TR, killed all but one of the Aybaras, and captured all the Cauthons. That hardly suggests he had forgotten about either of them, they are just not at the top of his list. But what about aft
  7. How do ya think? There needs to be someone to pose a threat to their plans. Someone to sew seeds of discord into their ranks. Who better than Fain/Mordeth? Seanchan has been all about leashing channelers for ages, then all of a sudden their new empress comes back possibly with marath'damane Aes Sedai at her side, not all of them, perhaps very few of them, will accept this right away and some who want to hold on to the old ways will be against it, but not wholly ready to rebel against their empress. Fain could be just the push they need, poisoning their minds and such, to send them into a
  8. The outriggers were supposed to be about Mat and Tuon going back to Seanchan. Not really any place, much less need for Fain there.
  9. My favourite theory is that Gitara just had to get rid of Luc before she could send Tigraine to the waste. Otherwise, had Luc been around, he would have followed Tigraine and brought her back, meaning Rand never gets born. Pretty huge impact on TG...
  10. He channelled on Spray, swinging the boom to knock a trolloc off the boat. The reaction comes four days later. Rands channeling and reactions in TEOTW: Restoring Bela - Going crazy in Baerlon Swinging a boom on Spray - His incident on the same boat Lightning to get away from darkfriends - Rand gets sick shortly after TEOTW - Rand gets sick almost immidiatly.
  11. Partial does not count, and next total eclipse here is in 2126 :)
  12. Randlanders must have experienced solar eclipses before; they're fairly common occurrences, occurring 2-5 times a year throughout the world, total and partial. Total ones are rather less common, at about once every 18 months somewhere in the world; here in the UK we saw two such last century, 1927 and 1999. (I missed the latter because of cloud - Grrrrr!!) So a simple eclipse probably wouldn't worry anyone. However, they tend to be short. Totality never exceeds 7.5 minutes, so if the darkness went on for longer than that it would be a bit alarming! And usually when an eclipse happe
  13. Nyn and Moiraine are simply the two available female channelers Rand trusts the most. He probably trusts Avi and Elayne just as much, and a case could be made for Egwene as well, but all of them are quite distracted by other stuff. Wheras Nyn and Moiraine both has are fully dedicated to see Rand succeed. And there is of course the amusing aspect of the relationship between Nynaeve and Moiraine - Nyn initially being all about getting revenge on Moiraine, and now they will stand side by side.
  14. I would not care one bit if Matt died. Mat on the other hand, that would be a different case...
