  1. I don't know if anyone else has thought of this yet but what if Rand dies, then the DO puts him in a new body thinking that Rand will be under the DO's control but Rand instead breaks free of the DO's control and then defeats him in his new healthy body??? Just a random idea.
  2. Graendal killed Asmo and I believe that the Golam killed Fel. These are my opinions, though I'm pretty sure that RJ subtley confirmed Graendal killed Asmo. Ava
  3. I have a slight theory. What if going through the gateway ter'angreal immediately cut off as much of each woman's power as she was holding when she went through. Moiraine was holding all she could plus the angreal so it severed her but Lanfear wouldn't have had to hold as much to do what she was doing or even to match moiraine.
  4. Yeah, I think you have to use the same binder to remove the oath as to place it in the first place. Keeping records is most like the reason for the different markings as well.
  5. So where did the dice in his head come from though??? I mean it could be because of the horn but I can't make sense of it.
  6. Well we have titles for everyone else. Perrin is a Wolfbrother which gives him all his abilities. Rand is a Channeler which gives him his abilities. Egwene is a Dreamer.... But Mat. He has the dice in his head that warn him and he has all his luck. What do we call that??? I probably sound confusing but I can't really place where his abilities came from or if it is simply something totally new in Randland. I guess his luck could have been from being Ta'veren but what about the dice in his head??????????
  7. Yep, thnx again everyone. just read that part of KoD again. It sux that Vandene and Sareitha died though.
  8. Well its not like he goes into detail or anything, he just writes that there are these girl-girl couples but he never even hints that a guy likes a guy except for a few guys he has mentioned might not feel that way about women. (can't remember which guys this has been mentioned about) But no out right clues.
  9. Since most weaves just dissipate when they hit the gholam, would balefire??? Ohh, and would balefire destroy Mats ter'angreal or would it dissipate???
  10. I've already read KoD once but I must have fogotten since its been almost a year since I read it. I am very forgetful. I wondered why I thought it was Careane. Thx everybody
  11. Has anyone else noticed that RJ has put in a little lesbianism but no gay guys in the series. I mean, there is that sea folk windfinder and the Cairhienin noblewoman who Caddy blackmails that they were pillow friends. We then notice that the windfinder would be charged with breaking her marriage-vows for having a pillow friend. In KOD Tarna reflects on the fact that there are many novices who become pillow friends. How Elaida tells Tarna that her and Meidani used to be pillow friends. How Galina made approaches to Tarna to become pillow friends. There are all these girl on girl homosexuality examples but no gay guys whatsoever that I've been able to find. Why is that???
  12. Does anyone know whether it is Careane or Sareitha that is the DF who killed Adeleas and Ispan and maybe the Kinswomen as well? I have a feeling it is Careane, IDK why but I just do. Or do any of you think it could still be Myrelle? working behind the scenes in hiding or something.
  13. I thought Graendal killed Asmo. and who is Mellisandre?????????? I must be missing something. There was some quote I read earlier that had a person ask RJ why no one could figure out that Graendal had done it and RJ answered with something along the lines of, I don't know, it is all in the books.
  14. Yeah, Idk which edition it was but I just read CoT and it was chalk full of typing errors and grammatical errors and such but no gender or OP mix-ups
  15. I think the female ck was destroyed because it was used to make a funnel for all of the taint to travel through. Saidar has never been tainted (unless somehow there has been a time when it was a female dragon with a hundred female companions who sealed up the bore but anyway) so Saidar isn't used to touching the taine and then it is forced to touch ALL of the taint in one day and it was touching the Dark ball of Shadar Logoth when it all imploded so I believe that this reaction caused the ck to be completely destroyed which also destroyed the access key. We know that destroying the access key doesn't destroy the ck becuase at some point right before the cleansing, all the forsaken gather and talk about how some of them thought all the access keys were destroyed.
  16. My equal fav's that have actually sworn on the rod are Moiraine, Caddy, and Verin but I liked Anaiya and Egwene would have to be my favorite all-time
  17. I'm sorry, I forgot who Sahra Covenry is???
  18. Verin has the Lily Broach Angreal while Elayne and Avienda use the turtle brooch Angreal.
  19. Um, the bowl didn't store Saidin, it just tapped into it. There are some Ter'Angreal that don't require someone to channel into them so obviously Ter'Angreal can channel the power. The bowl isn't a well for Saidin or Saidar.
  20. I think that at some point she will accept help from Gawyn when she decides she has sown enough discord and that more would eventually hurt the tower too much. Then she will escape with him and return full force with her Aes Sedai and thousand novices to reclaim the tower. All she has to do is teach all the novices how to link and shield and there is enough novices that they alone could sheild every Sister in the tower. Then Egwene could walk right up to Elaida's study and "remove" her right out the window. Just a theory.
  21. I don't think Verin has gone thru the rings in Rhuidan(sp?). She would have had to ask the wise ones more info on the city and the rings before entering but when Rand, Mat, and Moiraine go in the wise ones start out surprised at such a thing and then realize things must change. If Verin had gone thru before then it wouldn't of been such a big deal. If Verin went thru without talking to the Wise ones then how would she know exactly where to find the rings or even that the rings existed??? Urien never mentioned the rings or any Ter'angreal in the city.
  22. I'm in book ten, the part where Verin thinks of poisoning Cadsuane was in the firs half of book ten but I read through it like five times and can't figure out exactly what Caddy said that convinced Verin not to kill her.
  23. This post will probably be long and philosophical so anyone who doesn't have much patience should probably just skim past it. Anyone who has been to a church where the whole congregation is singing or been to listen to an orchestra knows that when a TON of music is playing that there is a ton of energy going around. RJ takes a lot of info from wicca and paganism (Ex. Bel Tine=Beltaine Same time of year and celebration and reason for the festival and thats just one example including the five powers [fire, water, air, earth and spirit] and the elements of wicca) Well in wicca, singing and dancing are methods of raising energy during ritual and are looked upon as very powerful. I totally agree with the singing being a huge part of sealing the bore completely. Okay I guess the post wasn't very long but yeah. Hope this helps.
  24. I agree with Tamia, The DO was sealed right when the creator created the world(s). If this is true then the DO couldn't be a man.
  25. Most of the farmers and herders would have been able to butcher their own meat and sell it at the inn or other places in town. There would probably been a butcher in the slightly more town-like village of Taren Ferry or down in Devon's Ride but a butcher would not have been absolutely necessary to survive.
