  1. I'm sorry to see you go, the best of luck to you and I hope the reason you're leaving is you've joined a scientific expedition to investigate some weird occurances of people disappearing by stones that have various shapes and markings on them. Or failing that, now Tarmon Gaidon is over you're being recalled to the Horn as a hero :)
  2. This discussion started in another thread and I think I've stumbled across something a bit weird. Possibly a contradiction or maybe an oversight. The World of the Wheel of Time page 136 states that "Additionally he (Hawkwing) divided all of the nations into provinces which ofttimes overlapped old national boundaries. While lower level functionaries in any province always came from the same region, no-one was appointed governor over a province that held any part of the nation they had been born in and he made certain that soldiers garrisoned in a province always came from still another regi
  3. Fair enough, it was such an interesting debate though I got a little carried away with the historical thing which was in the beginning related to my point but moved further and further away from it as the discussion continued. I like your summary about my feelings for Elayne, that really made me chuckle. Direct and to the point :)
  4. First off let me be clear, I apologize if my post came off in a disrespectful manner. I was merely trying to show that your opinion was based on some incorrect facts, mainly because of your phrasing that "won" the country for her. In terms of WoT Wiki it is not and has never been an accepted source. It is made by fans and as such has numerous mistakes and assumptions. I see mistakes above concerning Andor not having any military(Enshara was the daughter of the King of Aldeshar which predated Hawkwing and as such had a pre existing military and nation behind her yearning for independance). We
  5. That's just the thing. I have no idea what fighting and dying you are referring to. It was a diplomatic victory and not a war. Ishara's mother was already the governor of that province, Ishara then persuaded the general to lift the siege of Tar Valon and married him. Hawkwing was already dead at this time and in return for her help she gained the Amyrlin's support in making Andor a country. As you said everyone is welcome to their opinion, but when said opinions are reached due to a misunderstanding of the facts most would reassess them. "Maravaile lifted the siege, pledged his loy

  7. Man so much wrong here, where to even start? Will just touch on a few of the worst. This is in fact the exact opposite. She knows she has to win the votes of the high seats. This is made clear time an again. Not sure how you could even confuse the issue here. Further the line of descent is how Andor determines potential Queens. You hate Elayne because of a system that was set up long before she was even born? This has been refuted time and again over the years and it is frankly unbelievable how many people misunderstand this. First Rand was Steward in Andor, he never ruled the country,
  8. Birgitte and Min (just to show my hatred of Elayne, Egwene, Nynaeve (due to her early abysmal characteristics outweighing her later better ones) and Fail (spelt deliberately wrong)) is based on their personalities rather than their gender. Thom, Tam Al'Thor (who is the coolest father ever IMO and who I like to model myself on inasmuch it is possible, with my 2 children.
  9. I'm one in the I hate Elayne camp although I've read all the arguments both for and against her and I won't go over them all again as they've been debated so well I don't think I can bring anything new to the existing points although I agree with most of the anti Elayne opinions. My dislike of her also stems from the following points which I don't remember having been put into the mix yet: Her 2 pathetic letters to Rand in the Stone, stupid girl mind games (caused by her age I know but I detest this stupid mind game emotional blackmail rubbish used by some young females which I've been
  10. Yes it does. In your opinion, which isn't shared by everyone. Live and let live. Are you kidding me? Equally valued!? In Far Madding men have virtually no rights and aren't valued at all. In Andor a men can't be the leader of the country and succession is decided by how many female links that person has to the first Queen (who only won the throne due to her marriage to Souraine Maravaile, one of Artur Hawkwing's best generals but his contribution and indeed the army's contribution is ignored by Elaine and the other spoilt noblewomen who want to be Queen), and there's a place wh

  14. All of these you guys have quoted are just classic. To me Mat is the icing on the cake and can bring in some humour even to the most boring and tedious bits of the books. I liked the bit when he's courting Tuon and he brings the present, but gives it to Selicia instead. Absolute genius. I think most characters could be dropped from the books and their parts or lines given to others, but not Mat. Off with you, Joline. I need to write a letter to Her Royal bloody Majesty Queen Elayne the prim." Joline sniffed. "Are you going to swear at her too?" "Of course I am," Mat muttered, turning
  15. From the "fools that follow Ji E ToH" I thought you meant those stupid idiots who think they're so good at everything that follow Fail thinking they're her bodyguard. I can't stand those people, especially when they try to intimidate Perrin (like they thought that would EVER work) and they tell him they serve Fail not him. The whole army acknowledge him as a lord except those idiots. I really want them all to die a painful death along with Fail.
