  1. The sunshine are definitely multiracial because there are people's based on the native Americans such as some of the servants there are also darker skin such as Tuon and there are plenty of white people and all of them speaking a Texas accent (according to Robert Jordan) which is hilarious. But many of the Westland people's have a lot of description of their physical. The Tearans for example obviously Spanish in both culture and ethnicity they are described as Olive skinned and have a clear medieval Spanish culture, with their proficiency in raising horses growing olives, and making wines, especially their treatments of lowborn people. Spanish Lords and Ladies were very loose when it came to protections of the common people, who had no rights and it was completely acceptable for a lord to rape a common girl which very clearly the case in Tear. But then there's the Aiel, who are basically supposed to be a Slovak people accent and hair color wise, but with darker skin, imagine if everyone in the middle East had blonde hair and blue eyes, but the same skin tone. So they are less obvious race wise. Really the only ones who were completely based on one single people are the tearans, Andorans, and Cairhiens, who are Spanish English and French respectively, though the endurance also have some Irish and Welsh thrown in. Western and door is Irish and I believe the two rivers is Welsh (based on the distinct accent they're supposed to have plus their proficiency with a longbow which was created by the Welsh). This is also why I don't really see any issue with having black and mixed race people playing the two rivers folks or other Andorans, since there was always a good number of black people in both Britain.
  2. ItThe three lobes are a joke. Yes they take them but they look for every opportunity to create loopholes around them. They are a technicality. If there is even the smallest hint of Truth and something ice guy says they consider it true incest get around the oath about lying. This is how the three oaths were designed. They were created with the intent of allowing I said die to get around them easily. They were created as smoke and mirrors so that's why I said I could put on a show for regular people and pretend like they are bound. Siuan put it very nicely when she's told Egwene the three of us were the only reason people trusted Aes Sedai, and it's that trust she wanted to protect. But the part she left out was that the ice and I don't actually live up to the Oaths because they always look for ways to get around them. They were created just to trick people into trusting Aes Sedai.
  3. And let's not forget one important fact. the White tower was not the first or only I survived stronghold formed after the breaking. There were others. the White tower basically destroyed all of the others because they wanted all the power for themselves. that is why they have a law that states that they are the only legitimate gathering of Channelors, and they attack in the other Chandler's who try to gather in groups, not because it's dangerous but because they don't want threat to their power. their power and the White tower itself is more important to the I said die than even stopping the shadow. There I said died who would let the duff one win or even join the black ajah, if they discovered that the White tower would have to be destroyed in order to stop The dark one.
  4. I have the theory that the dark one gave Ishmael all of his memories once he joined the shadow. I think that he did it on the premise that access to his memories would help him better fight against Lew's Therin, but with the added benefits of driving him mad from mental exhaustion from having to remember every life pee ever lived. and this is why he remains with the shadow because the dark one promised to end this exhaustion by giving him an eternal death, once the wheel is destroyed.
  5. He said that he remembered fighting the chosen of like countless times, in the prologue of eye of the world. He knew that he was the one who served as the CoL's antithesis.
  6. I don't think he knew about the dark one prior to the boar being drilled, but I am sure that he knew about the cycle well before he turned to the shadow. He turned to the shadow because he realized that the cycle with continue every time the dark one was resealed and that the dark one would eventually win. he was a very logical person and he saw joining the shadow and helping The dark one succeed as the most logical choice. What I'm unclear on is whether or not he had his memories prior to this. Because it's also revealed that he follows the dark one because the dark one promised to allow him an eternal death where he didn't have to live anymore lives. it would make sense for this choice to come about because of his memories and the exhaustion of remembering every life would bring. What's unclear is whether or not the dark one gave him his memories after he join the shadow or if he already had his memories and they played a part in his decision to join the shadow.
  7. From an early point in the series, it's clear that ishamael remembers all of his past lives. This seems to be why he is so desperate for death. but do he have these memories before joining the Shadow or did The dark one give them to him? it would make sense that he joined the shadow because the dark one promised to give him an eternal death, if he was so tired from remembering all of his lives. but the story was quite clear that the reason he joined the shadow is because he saw that the shadows triumph was inevitable. It never mentioned early on that he saught an eternal death. did he make his decision to join the shadow because he remembered his past lives and new the shadow will eventually win, or did he simply study the past and realize that's a dark one would be broken free again, and that it was a cycle. Fel figured that out early in the series before his death. He tried to tell Rand that's the whole thing was a cycle and would repeat itself. so it's unclear whether or not is she had the memories already or was given to him after he had already turned to the shadow.
  8. KiWhere's the Malkeri being officially made Korean, with Lan' casting choice, does this mean the other border Landers are going to start being Asian as well. It would make sense with the Shienarsns, since they are based on Japanese culture anyway, with samurai like armor katana-like longswords, and top Knots, but what about the other borderlander nations? I'm pretty sure they're going to go with either Romani or Indian for Saldeans, given their description as darker-skinned often with largish prominent noses, which is very common among both those people's. But I don't remember much about the other borderlanders descriptions of culture or ethnicity wise. The only thing you know about candor early on is that their women where trousers a lot like birgette's, but I don't remember much about that accent or ethnicity that was mentioned, even after they began being more prominent in the series at the end, and it's the same with Arafel. Leschi norns are going to be easy to cast. They can literally just copy and paste the cast of The last samurai minus Tom Cruise. Ken Watanabe would make a great Agelmar.
  9. Saying it's a talent still doesn't explain fully. people with strong talents in healing can still use the power in other ways. Andro is literally the only person in the entire series who is extremely weak in all but one aspects of the power.
  10. The only thing I can think of is that he is actually one of the most powerful Channeler's in the world, but that he is extremely limited in what he can use that power in. but he is unique in that he is so weak in the power in other talents that he can barely use it. Most people who are like him and very strong a single talent at least have some power and other talents. He can barely even do anything with the power and less he's traveling.
  11. That doesn't really explain why he is so weak and all other aspects of channeling. even someone who is extremely strong and healing can still create a fireball usually. and raw is so weak in the pattern in general that he shouldn't have even been able to create gateway. And yet he is able to create gateway's in ways that it's done most very powerful Channelors. so it's not that he is simply very talented and traveling it's literally that he can only travel and that's it. The most he can do in other ways is a very small trickle of the power. if he had been a woman he would be even weaker than Morgause, who wasn't powerful enough to be an accepted. and I don't remember any other examples of people who are only powerful in one particular talent and are extremely weak and all other aspects of channeling.
  12. I'm rereading the series and have been thinking about Androl. He's considered weak in the power but hasban uncanny ability to create gateways larger than people much more powerful. How is he able to do this. Two possibilities come to mind. The first is a block. A block which feeds off of his love of travel, which prevents him from accessing ant significant amount of power unless traveling is involved. The second is that he is actually very powerful but is somehow restricted to a single talent, traveling. So is isn't able to channel effectively in other talents.
  13. HBO owns the rights to screen adaptations of the series. they can egally make any shows they want. they do not need his consent to make an adaptation. They simply are quoted to credit him and pay royalties. just like Sony doesn't need Marval comic consent toake Spiderman movies because they own the rights
  14. Ishy-moridin is a central part of the plot. He is killed, but the Dark One refuses to let him die as punishment for his failture, and forces him to use the name Moridin as a way of mocking his desire to die.
  15. They are planning to make one on Robert's Rebellion, and they may decide to contract him with so that hewill be available when they do. If he signs wirh Amazon for WOT, he would't be able to do their show most likely. HBO likes to sign people to no compete clauses to make sure they are available for future projects if they are sure that the person is their choice.
