  1. I think it has to do with how tight you can make a knot. So it depends on the creator.
  2. the problem with gateways is, it takes significant amount of power to produce one. So why bother with that, if you can make a filament of air stronger than steel slice through everything? Or throw boulders? There is millions of basic things that would be more lethal, requiring less power and making you able to use more.
  3. Indeed. Although he still lucked out by meeting someone who knew the trick since, as I mentioned, it's not a trick every soldier seems to know. He got himself into some pretty exclusive company somehow. I think Tam's bow/quarterstaff skill gave him an edge that pushed him higher in ranks quickly. I don't think its far fetched for a man with two sets of combat skills to be given special consideration and military education. The real thing I want to know about Tam is why Illian?
  4. 4 Brothers Matrix Trilogy Blade Trilogy Shutter Island Hancock Land of the Dead
  5. I think the adam would be a good one put the collar on your should where the tattoo ends then the bracelet around your wrist with the leash revolving around your arm. Then you could almost form a timeline type thing with the leash as well.
  6. To be honest I see rands women doing more to keep the peace going than the agreement, Min can influence Fortuona away from war, Elaine leads Cairhein-Andor with support from the TR's and Saldaea through Perrin, and Avi is gaining position within the WO ranks
  7. Personally I think a lot of Gawyns problems stem from whose story his revolves around, Egwenes story line tends to dumb down her opponents and nearly everyone around her
  8. my issue with the last battle was how simplified it was. No df betrayals (other than the captains getting screwed with) and the Sharans (which kind of felt like a cop out to me)
  9. Right now lets compile a list of main - minor characters. I just decided to make this topic because someone reminded me of the Sulin - Rand relationship and how extraordinary it was simply since she was one of the few who truly respected Rand in public and in private put him in his place. Her reaction to when he was captured was phenomenal. I won't quote it because I am about to go read it again.
  10. I can't remember how many non Aiel there where there, but from what I remember there where very low numbers so that may be a thing, not to mention they are way up north and gateway would be the way most of them get home.
  11. the thing that really bothered me is that camp would be mostly Aiel since they where doing the bulk of the fighting there so how he got past them kind of bothers me. Although the whole losing your original body thing bothers me to begin with
  12. Not sure if I seen the new. Could you describe them (with words or picture)? http://www.bowhuntingbasics.com/images/Compound%20Bow.jpg These, they are harder to get drawn, but easier to hold back, depending on the tension poundage That picture was the first time I seen that particular kind of bow. The limb bolts lock together when the bow & arrow are fully drawn? I'm not entirely sure, but when you get it about 75% drawn it becomes a lot easier. It may be what you said I am not 100% sure but I believe it has to do with the pulleys, like the lower one is an odd shape, so it
  13. I think sending Luc to the blight was to allow Rands mother to run to the Aiel easier (with no one to chase her down). Or it could be as simple as a misinterpreted prophecy saying Luc had important work to do in the borderlands/blight.
  14. Taint madness was probably still there, Nyn is the only one who can remove it among mortals (along with whoever she teaches). The AS would have to remove old oaths. New oaths unknown if their the binding type, since we don't know the methods for channellers to pledge to the DO
  15. Rhuarc was the only one that truly hurt. He was a grand warrior one who faithfully and unrelentingly fought on the side of the Light. He deserved to die a warriors death, not the death of a mindless drone
  16. is Bayle Domon a simple base born sailor? or does he have a hidden past. My allegations are based on the fact that he is completely comfortable with talking to nobility (especially Seanchan whom he had no idea who they where), is an able speaking coach (to Shipless), can identify cuenduellar with a short look at it NOT to mention that he identified it (accurately) as a seal. Just a bit of idle speculation while I was at work
  17. how was it a draw? the US did not assimilate Canada thus the US lost
  18. most of randland has no choice, if they went up against the seanchan now they wouldn't have the manpower to sustain a war/hold any lands gained
  19. probably because they both chalk it up to self defence (if its the one I am thinking of).
  20. Well Tam knows three forms of combat as well, Sword, long bow, and quarterstaff
  21. I believe Tam was a captain of the Kings guard (can't recall the formal name) of Illian. So that's a pretty high achievement for a lowborn
  22. Seanchan are the only ones with the physical manpower to take out the Shaido but they probably won't is what I was getting at.
  23. Well the only ones in shape to conquer or destroy the Sharans are the Seanchan at this point, everyone else has lost too much manpower. Likewise with the Shaido, I can't see the clans leaving them alone, but at the same time a united Aiel could attempt reconciliation with them. Especially with how the Wise Ones where looking to save as many Aiel as possible, I cannot see them signing off on destroying them without trying to bring them back into the fold
