  1. So, the idea that the vast amount of energy channeled through the Choedan Kal might have healed Rand's madness isn't completely off the mark? Quite frankly that's the first thing I thought when I read the final scene in TGS, but then I heard dissenting opinions from friends on the subject. Personally, I believe it repaired the worst of it, but there will still be traces of the damage left in the last two books.
  2. <--- MagickalMan btw That was great fun. I've Tweeted back and forth with Brandon a little, but I really liked the chat room setting. And no, I wouldn't have really bribed him with my Black Lotus ($3000 card!), but it was fun to see the reaction. haha
  3. Early on, she was using only her natural abilities, but as the story progressed she came to rely on her angreal with much more frequency. Also, I think she was pushing herself harder, taking her ability right to the edge of burning herself out.
  4. Goofkind is horrid. Almost every other writer in the business is better than this hack.
  5. Actually, it works in the real world, it's simply not as dramatic. Quiet your mind and visualize the process. I've used it in traffic jams and tense meetings, it's quite relaxing. It's just a meditative focus, like 100s of others.
  6. Include OSC's Alvin Maker series, brilliant stuff. Also, I recommend: J.V. Jones Robin Hobb Roger Zelazny Raymond Feist and George R. R. Martin (of course) Seriously, I don't know whose writing I enjoy more, his or Jordan's.
  7. I don't "hate" her, there's just times when I'd like to throttle her. Acting like an ass and not thanking Rand for saving her kingdom *really* rubbed me the wrong way.
  8. The top 3 are damned close, I'd be happy with any of them. 1. Blue - I like fighting for a cause, plus there's political intrigue, travel, and adventure. 2. Brown - I'm a bookworm and love history. 3. Gray - I don't mind arbitrating and haggling. The next 2 aren't horrible, they simply aren't "me". 4. Green - Can't see myself surrounded by warders or itching for battle all the time. 5. Yellow - Healing is... ok, I suppose. Wouldn't want this to be my vocation. The final 3 are completely alien to me. 6. White - No, I enjoy my emotions. 7. Red - Idiots and hatemongers. 8. Black - Why? You'd only be used like a Kleenex then discarded.
  9. Look at the bright side, A Song of Fire and Ice is going to be produced for TV. That's many, many steps above Gooberkin, IMO.
  10. If most of the Forsaken weren't being such pansies, and actually worked together, they would have been successful.
  11. Mat was not sick, the AS had don the healing, but he was exstramly weak. Sick, weak, whatever. He wasn't 100%, not even close.
  12. Actually wouldn't it just be better to transmute it after its made. It might be a little more work but can you imagine how time consuming it would be to make it link by link in chain or scale mail. Steel Armor would be easier to transmute I would think as for the most part it's a solid peice at least for the majority of it. [glow=green,1,500]Darth_Andrea[/glow] It would need to be flexible, but once it's changed to cuendillar it would lose that. You'd end up with one rigid, solid piece, much like the harbor chain in Tar Valon.
  13. The easiest way would be for the person making the iron links (or scales) to attach a link and then turn it to cuendillar, piece by piece, until the armor is finished. So, you'd need a blacksmith who can make cuendillar, or a channeler willing to learn blacksmithing. A suit of it would definitely be worth a kingdom's riches. Not to mention visually stunning.
  14. I'm not really sure how good Gawyn has become. I'd venture to guess it would come down to Lan and Matt, and then Matt would get lucky and trip, skewering Lan accidentally.
