  1. I just finish The First Confessor by Terry Goodkind.
  2. I always thought "the guardians balance the servants" was more political then shear numbers. For the first time in 3000 the AS have a group of people who can challenge them. In tPoD Egwene highlighted the AS belief that the only law that matters to AS is Tower Law. They should be able to do whatever they want however they want and be able to demand what ever they want. They have, as an institution, become bullies. Now the AM can tell the AS to back off and be civil.
  3. With Bryne sent to Caemlyn Uno will probally have command at FoM. When Egwene orders Uno to attack she will then learn most of the SAS army was Dragonsworn the whole time. I always thought Uno and Talmanes had a thing worked out on the march concerning the Band's "deserters."
  4. I think Lan will be saved be Elyas(?) and the wolves.
  5. Wait, what? Are you saying the HoV chest is a stasis box? Yes, it was going to be kept for the Creator knew how long under a lake of distilled saidin (remember what happened to the pepple). Stasis boxes seem downright invincible and remember Lanfear's attitude when Rand put Fain's dagger in the box.
  6. I think the upcoming power struggle between Egwene and Rand will hurt the Light.
  7. The HoV was kept in a stasis box.
  8. Rand laid a "nasty trap" on all the waygates he found by laying a weave on them that wouldn't kill shadow spawn immediately. That is what the problem with the Caemlyn gate is. The trollocs could still enter Caemlyn, burn and pillage for a while before they dropped dead. Or they could get a hold of the dragons, move them into the waygates and the "reinforcements" (trollocs who didn't pass throught the gate) could collect them and take them back to the blight.
  9. With the Wheel being neither good or evil maybe it told Gitara to send Luc to the blight so the Do could have his super assassin.
  10. I think at the FoM Meet and Greet Rand will knock the AS authority down a few pegs. And something else i can picture, although I doubt it would in the the book is some like this: Egwene, with a seating arrangement similar to when she met the noble on the frozen lake in PoD (I forget what the fan name for it was), makes her speech about why Rand must not break the seals. Then Rand starts his speech about why they're wrong. The AS are not listening as they move about the benches whispering to each other including Egwene. Rand stops, makes a loud throat clearing noise and starts again,
  11. The idea of using the OP (both sides) to seal away the DO has occureed to me.
  12. The AS are planning to Take Control of the forces of Light. In ToM that was what the focus of every AS chapter not dealing with Nyn's test and the hunt for Messana was focusing on. Right now, Egwene and all other AS feel Rand is wrong for wanting to break the seals. Once he does she will be, "he is a madman who will doom us all! Join us and we will guide him right." Nyn and Mo are the only AS who believe he has a pretty good idea about what he's doing and has good reasons.
  13. @Aredeis Good points. It goes into what I'm thinking about the trust issue. Yes, Mo and Nyn are the only two AS he does trust completely. But they are also the only two AS who trust HIM completely. Egwene, and all the other AS and Saidar wielders, thinks Rand's plan to fight the DO is wrong. Even though they don't have a better one. They think they should be in control of the LB because they said so. It seems the AS put the needs of the Tower before anything else. Mo and Nyn would let all of Tar Valon burn if it meant a quick end to the LB.
  14. Few things i want to mention.... jsbrads mentioned how strange it was how it effected Mat. But keep this in mind, in the 24 hours Mat: 1. Fought trollocs in a place people did not believe in trollocs in a fortress know for not being infiltrated. 2. Learns Whitecloaks are harassing his homeland, friends' families, and maybe his own 3. Has his first meeting with the finns, ending with his being thrown out of their world. 4. Get yelled at by an AS. 5. Takes a trip to the Aiel Waste via portal stone. 6. Asked to enter a place only candidates for clan chiefs and wise ones can enter, loca
  15. I was looking into who books get formatted for Kindle. It turns out .mobi and .amz, which is the format for Kindle books, use basic HTML and CSS. That explained the weird and bad formatting I've seen in some Kindle books. I'm guessing the editors of most publishing houses, while being able to rock layout on Word of Page Maker, have little to no clue about HTML because they are publishers and not programmers (even though HTML and CSS are not programming languages). If you have even auto converted Word documents to HTML or used a WYSIWYG to make a web page, then looked at the code used
  16. I think "Holding Out for a Hero" by Bonnie Tyler as Mat's theme song.
  17. As the joke goes, "There is no F$ing end to The Wheel of Time"
  18. I think Faile's vow to "pick up his sword if he falls" she made to him in LoC was a Saladean custom for women. They are known for the officers and noblemen bringing their wives to battle. And if the husband dies, the wife picks up his sword and fights on.
  19. The prologue seemed to be the pattern saying, "only one fight to focus on now" to me at least. That is why the soldiers lost there weapons. That and the farmers at the FoM and the borderland farmers heading north is pointing out the everyone will be fighting the last battle. There is no cilivan population to protect, no hiding out the storm, no sitting on the sideline. Everyone needs to be there and everyone will have a place in the Army of the Light even if they are not fighting. The LB is win or die. If the good guys lose, all are dead.
  20. I thought the diffence in OP strength was simply the male/female dynamic with humans. Men are, on average, stronger then women and women, on average, are more flexible then men. When you do a case by case basis then strong women are stronger then weak men. But if you had an encounter with random AS and random AM it would be safe to bet the AM was stronger. Of course Nyneave is probally stronger then half the Black Tower.
  21. I think it comes down to how channelers view the OP. The AoL AS, the AM, and Nyneave look at the OP as a kind of instrument of science. Once they established a theory of what they were trying to accomplish they would use the OP to test the theory out. Remember Asmo and Rands' tutoring sessions were never Asmo saying "take some fire like so, a little spirit, and some water...And there is the weave." He explained the theories of even the simplest weaves and Rand had to figure it out. While all the modern female channelers (except Nyneave) look at the OP as a skill set. "Do this
  22. I would like to see a Lan/Moriane reunion. He has many things to say to her, and she knows she has it coming.
  23. I too have to say poor FitzChivarly Farseer had the most crappy life for no reason.
  24. Just saw this on Yahoo today. http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/cutline/apple-major-publishers-hit-federal-antitrust-lawsuit-over-162802123.html Apple and other publishers conspired to fix ebook prices forcing amzon to raise theirs. I knew Steve Jobs was up to no good. Well, now he is in Hell.
  25. I'm reading Gods of Mars of the John Carter books. They are public domain so I got them free on my Kindle.
