  1. Don't think the pattern works that way, if you die the pattern can't suddenly remake you. Only the DO can give you access to the True Power. No one knows what happens when someone using the One Power and someone using the True Power cross balefire streams. Since the True Power works so differently than the one power. They weren't a single being or else when Rand was bonded by the girls they would feel Ishy also. Not to mention nowhere does it say if balefire hits another balefire stream are the casters are burnt out of existance.
  2. Well Lan and Moraine were also trying to downplay Rand saving everyone around the group since that would of brought up a lot of questions. Nyn and Egwene had to deal with the shock he could channel, like the forsaken a man who could channel were stories all had heard growing up and few things were as terrifying as a man who could channel. They also weren't really in the loop of everything Rand did, except his claiming to of killed the DO.
  3. It has to do with one pf them was using the one power the other was using the true power. They are their sperate souls, since the girls warder bonding Rand had no effect on Ishy. It seems to be more like a sort of warder bond. No one can sense the true power and only the Do can give you access to it.
  4. The Green Ajah holds themselves ready for the Last Battle, they don't go out seeking fights. If they die in fights with shadow spawn then there wouldn't be any left for the last battle. There was around 180 Green at the time of the LB. 180 total. Also many leaders didn't have an Aes Sedai advisor. Seems like only Andor, the borderlands, and Mayene did. if you look at the fight in the Gap in book one, a few Aes Sedai might give the defenders a morale boost, but they wouldn't of made a difference against that large of an army.
  5. If this helps the companion states "during the AOL Shayol Ghul was an idyllic island in a cool sea, a favorite escape for those who enjoyed the rustic. After the breaking it became a mountain in the blasted lands, where the DO's prison was located. More precisely Shayol Ghul was sort of a focus point, a place where the DO's prison lay close to the world - there was a thinness in the pattern, allowing the bore to be detected - so the focus of the DO's strength lay there." So the mountain/Lava came after the breaking. Shayol Ghul also wasn't the place the Aes Sedai orginally drilled a hole into his prison. Shayol Ghul was simply the place where it was easiest to detect the bore, so it was the place easiest for the DO to influence the world/ speak to him/ or reach the bore to seal his prison.
  6. Remember what Moiraine said "The Dragon is one with the land and the land is one with the dragon". Some of it like the apple trees isn't just him being a Ta'veren it's him being the dragon also. Being the dragon means Rand has a strong connection to the land and the land reacts to him. BS had said he was trying to avoid Rand being jesus thing, so some of the things like his meeting with Tuon before the Last Battle was him using the growth song and not any power. Rand said the pattern is balance. So with the DO so strong and influencing the evil stuff towards the end, Rand's Ta'vern things no longer were creating bad stuff like before. All his Ta'vernness was simply making good stuff happen.
  7. They don't execute gentled men, basicly he would of been kept at the WT until he lost the will to live is my understanding.
  8. Its a good book, though only goes to the first seven books I think. RJ wanted it made like a scholar had made it from notes, so it has some intentional mistakes in it, but a few accidental mistakes like when it describes what dreadlord and chosen were. But it does give some background for each forsaken.
  9. She was a sadist. The Big White Book describes it as "a little extra physical and mental pain was a small price to pay when compared with survival. Those people she felt society could do without however, were no so lucky. If they did not die from the torture she killed them after. She thoroughly enjoyed giving them their just deserts - until the Hall of Servants discovered her perversion." So basicly she made sure when she healed someone it hurt them a lot more then it needed to, Sort of like a doctor who might operate on someone without giving them any anesthesia. She wanted them to suffer and she enjoyed it. Or if she felt you were just some nobody she would just cause you a lot of pain then kill you.
  10. Yes balefire allows you to be reborn later. Think of it as sort of a fail safe by the pattern to make sure someone like ishy doesn't age after age just balefires everyone he sees to end everything. Sooner or later the pattern would run out of souls. The forsaken aren't bound to the shadow forever. RJ said only a few souls are spun out destined keep being important, like LTT and IShy or the heroes of the horn. Though Brigette did mention once she was a farmer and it was the most boring existence ever. Just like next time most of the champions will be different. Next last battle most of the champions and forsaken will be different folks. I assume it's part of the free will theme.
  11. I can think of two reasons. First her babies, no telling what effect her swearing on an oath rid would have on them. But secondly being a queen and trying to secure her rule I'm sure being able to "bend the truth" was going to be needed. Elayne is going to be a queen and not an Aes Sedai in the white tower so should she have to swear?
  12. I think we can rule out Nakomi being any forsaken, Why would any forsaken help her and not simply try to capture or kill Avi? They would be unlikely to help Avi like Nakomi did.
  13. At the end Moghi has her own mindtrap, Moridin only had Lanfears. No the DO is fully sealed away, he no longer can touch the world for now. Their souls will get spun out normally and might never play an important role. Since RJ said only a select few souls are spun out for intended purposes over and over like Ishy and LTT. Next time most the forsaken and champions of the light will be new people. But now the ages will pass until the DO is forgotten about entirely. He has no ability to put souls in bodies etc. until the next time they drill a hole in his prison.
  14. Also towards the end Rand could sense DF's So she would of been exposed had she of been a DF.
  15. Ishy job was to keep humanity fractured. They are right it would of done ishy more good to have the Trollocs destroy Hawkwing then to have Hawkwing win.
