  1. Who is the most hardcore fantasy character you've come across? I think Logen, the bloody nine, is most definately the most hardcore guy i've read... 8)
  2. I don't think Rand will fight the DO at all. Isn't it impossible to defeat the DO? I'm sure Rand will just have another face-off with Ish. I think Rand will lead a band of channelers (As LTT did) and reseal the DO's prison, but properly this time. He will obviously have to destroy the seals first and Min will figure out why because she reads Herid Fels books all the time. The People Rand takes with will have to face off the forsaken. At the same time, everyone is going to be fighting all around Randland. Thats my best guesse.
  3. A Stare Off Uno VS Mr Ares ;)
  4. Well the finns gave him memories back right, aren't those memories of his past lives? If they are memories of lives he has lived, then he must indeed be tied to the wheel. If he is not tied to the wheel, then that means that normal people can be spun out any number of times and live many lives and then what would be the point of the heroes? They would be the same as everyone else.
  5. I'm not too sure. When Mat sounds the horn, all the heroes know Rand/LTT, but they don't know Mat. On the other hand, if all the heroes tied to the wheel are spun out again and again then it would imply that normal people aren't spun out over and over. Seeing as Mat can remember parts of many past lives, i should think he is tied to the wheel in some way. In TGH Artur Hawkwing says to Rand: I can recall Mat saying much the same later in the series, something about fighting with and against Artur Hawkwing many times.
  6. I really want to see Loil speak to the Ogier at the stump and see them go to war. But this will almost definately happen in other books for obvious reasons.
  7. You failed. Irony is a disparity of expression and intention. When someone says one thing but means another, or when a literal meaning is contrary to its intended effect. An example of this is sarcasm. When i said wow what a coincidence, i meant the opposite. Like i said before, i was being sarcastic. So in what way did i fail? Just because you fail to see what i mean, does not mean i failed.
  8. Odin also had a hat, but none of that is coincidence - RJ "reverse engineered" some of our myths to show what they grew from. We also see examples of their myths, rooted in our time. It's intentional. Yeah i know it's no coincidence, i was being sarcastic =P
  9. I think that they will rediscover the lost songs. The Aiel/ tinkers and ogier will sing together again. But it'll just be an epilogue type thing. Like after TG and everything, they sing to regrow the blight or something like that. That sounds more likely to me...
  10. wow that makes perfect sense... never realised that before. You do know that Odin is not only supposed to be one eyed, but is also associated with ravens and spears. Thats quite a coincidence.
  11. Slayer did not kill either of them. Later in the series we get Slayer's POV, and he reminisces about killing 2 AS in Tear. He said it isn't everyday that he gets to kill AS. So if he had killed Lanfear, wouldn't he be reminiscing about killing one of the Forsaken? That is a much bigger deal than 2 AS...
  12. Oh i c, thats actually really clever... So they were both burnt out or whatever, makes sense. But if they both couldn't channel, how'd Moiraine live and Lanfear die? Did Moiraine make a deal with Finns or something?
  13. Im not actually sure, but i think so... I don't know if we've had any scenes from Moridin's POV after it happened.
  14. Rand's sickness isn't from saidin, it's from the link with Ishy... After the 2 balefires cross, they both get a splitting headache and then Rand starts seeing Moridin's face and getting sick and dizzy when trying to channel.
  15. She isn't masking anything. While Rand is removing the taint, she admits that she really is weaker.
  16. Well i don't think she has much power at the moment, with her being a slave for Ishy... So who knows what could happen? I don't know if i can see it happening, but it still might.
  17. Yeah LTT said that he loved her and he didn't dump her for Ilyena, he said he dumped her because of her insane ambition and only fell in love with Ilyena after. She went over to the dark because she was highly ambitious and at the same time jealous and angry, in the beginning i don't think it had anything to do with being evil. I think she would turn back to the light if Rand/LTT took her back.
  18. I've read all of them and i can't remember any bad guys turning...
  19. I got no clue who is going to turn or why. But i am convinced that someone is, even if it's purely because it hasn't happened in the series at all. I mean how many good guys have turned bad? And no bad guys have turned good. I think it hasn't happened yet because he was saving it for a twist at the end.
  20. I think RJ added in all the nakedness purely so he could put different characters off-balance in stressful situations which created inner conflict. For example, Egwene in the sweat tents, Faile and her followers as gai'shain, Thom and Julin on the seafolk ship, Egwene, Nyn and Elayne going for their accepted test. As you can see all of those naked cultures were used to put the characters off-balance in stressful circumstances and we got to see their different reactions. For instance Moiraine acted differently to Egwene in the sweat tents, she accepted it and took it calmly while Egwene was shocked.
  21. Maybe it has to do with the fact that the time period WoT is set in, was very prim and proper. It was considered decent to wear very long dresses etc. NO ONE wears any short skirts. It is often mentioned that it was proper to conceal your ankles. I think all the naked stuff, especially the Aiel customs, were made to put the characters in weak positions and put them off balance to see their reaction when they weren't in control.
  22. I think the real reason for Olver being there, was a way to link the game of Snakes and Foxes to the Finns... Without Olver, Mat and the gang wouldn't have a reason to play it all the time. They would just play stones or something and it would be forgotten.
  23. True. But, in the whole series, the only darkfriend that i can think that has turned to the light, was Ingtar. And that doesn't even count because he wasn't really evil... I just have the feeling that someone is going to turn.
