  1. I don't think that Pride would have been an issue for Aes Sedai in the Age of Legends because they were the 'servants to all'. Not like the present Aes Sedai, but I wonder if some things were so simple at the time, because of the technology during the Age of Legends, that the Aes Sedai just simply thought some things were too basic to teach and so worried more about the healings and other spells that were needed right then. I also agree with someone wanting to teach but not having anyone with the ability to use it.
  2. I try to tell people to be patient. Myself, I am not put off by how big a book is and very seldom have I ever had to put a book down because I just can't get into it (Funny that Twilight was one of those and I don't even know why). With the Wheel of Time you have so many story lines and characters and ALOT of descriptions that sometimes get annoying. But if she can "wade" through that stuff, the action is some of the best I've read. Hope this helps.
  3. If I remember The Great Hunt correctly, Egwene was "special" because she could use Earth so Strongly. I agree with IB that we are only seeing the tip of the iceberg with the damane only being weapons. If damane purpose was only battle, then if the Seanchan couldn't handle women channelers "running around unleashed" then why not just kill them off.
  4. There were at least 4 that I could have chosen. All (Bryne, Iturlude, Cauthon, Bashere) have great qualities, but my choice was Bryne. I just loved his honesty and how he was so loyal to Egwene. Not the Aes Sedai, but Egwene. If I was to pick someone off the list, it would probably be Tam 'al Thor becuase of the Battle of the Two Rivers and how he helped Perrin in Malden.
  5. First of all Welcome!! We hope you enjoy your stay and come back often. I really like your thoughts, you are looking at the book with a way open mind and sometimes you will need that. Good luck in the reading and stay in touch. ;D
  6. I started reading the series about 12 years ago and after many rereads I seem to understand things better with age and having things refreshed. Age has never been a factor for me (characters) More the situations. I have always liked Thom, if there was something I wished I could do is travel all over the world telling and hearing stories.
  7. Good luck with your friend Impressive. I have had about three friends that I have got started on this series and at least a couple have wondered if they should have killed me! The jury is still out on the third :D
  8. It's before the series, but LTT and the 100 companions sealing the Dark One and the Forsaken.
  9. You're lucky to be starting now so at the most you'll only have to wait for two more books. I have had to wait for books 7 on up to come out. By the way. Good to meet You and I hope You enjoy your stay!
  10. You can't use this Literally, but I'm very patriotic so I would think a version of "Tai'shar Manetheren" would be cool to whatever Nation, community etc. you live in.
  11. I kind of hope there will be changes. If not it will just be like she was suspended in Time. Every experience big, small, good, bad, all changes us in some way, so keeping Moiraine the exact same as she was when she plunged wouldn't be right. She needs to have changed in some ways to make it believable. Now the extent of the changes... that will definetly be the question.
  12. Hear! Hear! Yes, I agree that was punny, but the Audiobooks are great! I have New Spring, The Great Hunt, The Dragon Reborn and Kife of Dreams. Looking forward to getting them all when I can afford them! Strongly suggest listening.
  13. I agree. There are very few originals anymore. I'm not dissing anybody because alot of people get ideas from bouncing off others. Personnally, I like it because like on this site everyone has their own take on what happened and will voice it so other people can become enlightened. By the way, welcome to Dragonmount! :)
  14. In case you are interested I put a tribute in Fiddlesticks.
  15. Personnally, I am glad that Galad is now the commander of the Children of the Light. Normally, I say Whitecloaks like most do, but I am making the change here for a distinct purpose. I can't remember exactly which book it is when you find Galad reading a book on the Children of the Light (I think it's the fourth one TSR). Galad is reading about what the Children are supposed to stand for, not necessarily what the "Whitecloaks" have turned and changed things. I believe that Galad will attempt to bring the Children back to it's origins which are to help save the people from the dark instead of being judge/jury/hangsman. Galad in doing what is right at all times will not allow someone to be put under the question without good reason first, etc.
