  1. This is the Dream that you are talking about right?

    “She saw an enormous sphere made of the finest crystal. It sparkled in the light of twenty-three enormous stars, shining down on it where it sat on a dark hilltop. There were cracks in it, and it was being held together by ropes There was Rand, walking up the hillside, holding a woodman's axe. He reached the top and hefted the axe, then swung at the ropes one at a time, chopping them free. The last one parted, and the sphere began to break apart, the beautiful globe falling in pieces. Rand shook his head.”

     

    I dont have my book with me but where did the number 7 come from? Also What is the sphere and what do the 23 stars represent?

     

    As to the Towers one, that is what i think as well.

  2. For a first tat, you should do something small, I would recommend you not doing the dragons till you have both time and money to spend on them, a full arm tat will take multiple sessions, also if you want the colors from the book, you'll have to pay extra for the metallics as well.

  3. because we have only been told of the one, it is assumed that this is the only one that did survive. and seeing how its so late in the books it wouldn't be very wise to introduce a new one to be taken care of, so the assumption that there are no more is a valid one.

  4. Getting us back on track:

     

    - When you pray nightly that December 21, 2012 is when the first person learns to channel and the Age of Legends can begin already

     

    Dude, I've been doing it for years now, hum maybe it when everyone else starts, lol.

     

    ......Thinking on how portal stones actually work, and designing plans on them.

    .... Wanting your hair to grow longer so you can put it in one thick braid and then shake said braid at people. :nynaeve:

    ... When your mom post a post- chemo picture your first thought it "Oh MY, SEANCHAN!!! RUN!"

    .When you pull a black bandana out to prevent smoke inhalation and your friends joke that you've gone Aiel :aiel: ( happened 3 years ago when the forest fire smoke was way to thick and I didn't have a smoke mask)

  5. We have never been told what they do if they discover one of their men can, we know that when they discover one of their women, they make it a huge celebration and bring her to the tower, possibly the man just wanders away in the middle of the night, or jumps off the nearest cliff.

  6. also the fact is we dont know if Mat is still tied to the horn as horn sounder, he did "die" twice since blowing the darn thing, first time was being hung in Rhu, the other was the Dead but balefired back to life thing, which because he was dead for a while there could have very well snapped the tie to the horn, maybe Lan has it in his saddlebags and blows it before a trolloc can bash his head in. :blink:

  7. That is true, but then we haven't heard that they didn't either. Though maybe the reason why they don't in the real world is that they tend to die young, though the times when she is forced to grow old were boring, She does though have a fondness for children.

     

    also, remember when Eggy was teaching the AS in TaR and the AS steped into the nightmare? they all had cuts, brusies and sores that they got from the nightmare. one even had her long hair shortend to a burnt fizz, perrin waking up with blood on him from the mad who was skined whole, the splinter that was embeded in someones thumb, i think that was Rand. So the Verin scar is not some mistake.

  8. Ok so lets break this one down.....

     

    In that day, when the One-Eyed Fool travels the halls of mourning

     

    Obvious, this is Mat, though we can debate about where the halls of mourning are, maybe they were the various halls in the ToG?

     

    and the First Among Vermin lifts his hand to bring freedom to Him who will Destroy

     

    another Obvious on Rand/LTT (who was First Among Equals back in the AOL) breaking the seals and the DO.

     

    the last days of the Fallen Blacksmith's pride shall come.

     

    Perrin of course, though how he was prideful I don't know.

     

    Yea, and the Broken Wolf, the one whom Death has known, shall fall and be consumed by the Midnight Towers.

     

    now the problematic line: let me skip to the End and work back from there.What are The Midnight Towers? We were informed that yes there are things back in the Seanchan homeland that are called the ToM, but also after ToM was released that the title was a reference to the ToG, to the WT and to the "BT". I am postulating that the Broken Wolf is Noal/Jain Farstrider. We know that he died (literally fell and consumed by the Finn's) in the ToG, one of the towers ToM was referencing, there was evidence that some sort of compulsion was put on him, i.e. his recent memory problems, and that he disappeared in the Blight years ago, Mordin/Ishy back then was out during this time, so Death could have know him.

     

    And his destruction shall bring fear and sorrow to the hearts of men, and shall shake their very will itself.

     

    And so we come to this line: Is the And bridging verses 4 and 5 or is the He in this line some one else?

     

    this could go both ways. if news of Farstrides death spreads then yes that can happen especially in Borderlanders, where he was a living legend and then And in this case is a bridge. But this line can go to a few other people as well, depending on the interpretation of Destruction, If we go with death then it could also refer to Lan and the army at Tarwins Gap. If you go with

    a Literal destruction, then it could be linked with Mat and his "Dragons" (but when have we ever seen a literal meaning in a prophetic verse?, its always been euphemized).

     

    personally I am leaning towards the Lan and his army at Tarwins Gap.

    the Tower in Malkier are called the broken towers so these ones are out.

  9. I Have been pondering this for a while my self. Especially now that there really no time for some of the "birth" related visions, ect. to happen (ie both Nyn's and Avi's) and I feel that the answer would be yes.

     

    this comes from multiple things that have been stated through the books, like Verin's scar and the Ripped out episode come to mind right away. But this could only happen between a person who has a living body and some one who was either bound to the wheel(ie a HoH) or in TAR in the flesh. This because things that you dream up in TaR cant be brought out, I wont go graphic there but you get my point.

     

    The reasoning for one partner is if it didn't don't you think B and G might have had kids there? they were together there as they were together when they were alive.

     

    The wired thing of Avi's kids is that they would be born as a set of 4, and all have the ability to channel, at least that has been my assumption from the start. though it is looking more likey that she does conceive them In TAR after Rand had died, though by the looks of it this is how Lan and Nyn get their child, Referring to Min vision.

  10. its because mordin's clothing was just that clothing, and probably very nicely tailored stuff at that, so there would be no edges to be seen or wind be able to move freely, also he was stalking them so if one looked in his direction he would stop and be motionless. also when a warder is standing still ( and the wind is not whipping the cloak around)it fades right into the background.

  11. Well as for the death front: remember that Mat has technically died 2 times already so there is you main carry dying earlier in the books :tongue:.

     

    I do have to agree that Min's a gonner, I think that Elayne is in preterm labour and maybe she will die giving birth to her babes or right after ala Padme (sorry for the Star Wars reference).

     

    I think Moraine and Tom will have there HEA. because of the viewing of Min's Lan and Nyn have at least one more thing to do, get a child off each other.

     

    Mat and Fortuna are safe as far as i can see.

     

    I'm still up in the air with Eggy.

     

    of course Bella will be at the LB and she will be one of the few still standing after all is said and done, you got to give credit were its do that horse must be tavereen with the amount of times she could have been killed, :wink::bela:

  12. .....When you roll over in the morning and call your spouse Rand/Perrin when their name is John.

     

    ....When you star to look at the country side and say wow this really remind we of (insert nation/place here)

     

    ...When you get a big @#$ red bump in the middle of your forehead and you just say your Malkeri

     

    .. When you automaticly add an I to you nephews name it Logan not Logain.

     

    . When you answer the queston of what do you want to be when you grow up "a Gleeman"

  13. I love that one.

     

    My next planned tats are of some wolf prints on my butt( no I will not post pics of that one) ;) and then I think I'll get the dragon done with the metalic inks, just dont know were i'll get the dragon thou

  14. Not nessicarily disagreeing with Gold: but the way that the AS do healing pre Nyn, is a quick battle field healing. Remember after Nyn healed stilling the Yellow saw uses to improve on the Air/Water/Spirit healing that they do.

     

    But to the OP: The fact that the "New type" of Novice and their ability to pick up the weaves fast, I agree with the argument of the mind training, but also that thpse who were "wilders" probily did something very similar to it unknowingly in the first place. Remember when The WG's were showing some of the weaves learned from Moggy and some AS Jumped on those weaves, very similar thing.

  15. its obviously Noal/Jain Farstrider. He was the one who DIED in the MIDNIGHT TOWERS, holding off the fins so mat mor and tom could get the heck out of there, he ammited that Ishy/Morian(DEATH) has known him, this being what broke him. when news of his death spreads that would set sorrow in the hearts of men, specialy Rand seeing how the tales of Jain Farstrider was his fave. just dont know how it will bring fear or shake peoples will.

  16. the entire last Mat chapter rocked, so loved it all from the excape to Moraine telling Thom that she'll marry him. Also the forging of Thor's hammer by Perrin and the rediscovring of the weaves needed to make power enhanced wepons was so cool, expecialy whith the fact that Perrin was standing in the middle of an iron star at the end, as soon as he steped up and started working the forge I said out loud that he's making Thor's hammer.

     

    oh and one more thing the fool of a tool is nolonger a fool or a tool, man he grew some, hope he keeps going in that direction.
