  1. I actually really want to find out what a 9-horse hitch is now..... dont make me google it lol
  2. meh, im happy with those responses
  3. what does the reader gain from a detailed description of a fight scene? by your logic, surely the last few chapters of Fires of Heaven could have been consolidated into this: "Rand fought Rahvin and killed him"
  4. this idea intrigues me. imagine you are fihting someone. they come at you, drawing back for a thrust... and you open a gateway that leads directly behind them right in front of them as they do it. they stab through the gateway and impale themselves! priceless! of course, if your a channeler simply decapitating them with air would suffice... and be simpler. if you are fighitng another channeler, they could conceivably stop you before you open the gateway, severing the weave or shielding you or some-such.
  5. fair enough, but Rand WAS being insufferably arrogant at the time, and likely believed that he would be able to raise a shield in time.
  6. using the power as a shield is hardly new or innovative, and Rand didnt have the time to raise a shield, what with the complete shock of seeing semirhage shooting a fireball at him and all
  7. europe seems too thin to be randland. randland is very fat. it is likely randland USED to be europe, and part of asia, but the Breaking reformed eveyhting and changed the landscape immeasurably. if you look at the world map in the BWB you can see roughly what i mean.
  8. besides, didn't she do it by accident or something? like she spontaneously discovered balefire but only used a 'fingers-width' of it?
  9. There's a university called the Citadel? 0.o
  10. i really doubt there was a massive machine that you pushed a human and a pig into, press a button and hey presto, a trolloc pops out.... gene-splicing was mentioned in the big white book i think, which is science
  11. I wouldnt want to be Osan'gar at the moment. I certainly wouldnt bring him back if i were the DO either. Let him suffer for dying to ONE OF HIS OWN GUYS.

    I didn't notice it when i first read it, and it had been a while now, but now I realise what a rip off of Tolkien it is. The plot, themes, character, etc are exactly the same, albeit some minor changes.
  13. true, i nthis series there isnt really a sense that the bad guys CAN win. we all now they wont, but at least we need the suspense of thinking that they WILL win. how can the Light lose? even if millions of trollocs came south, the combined armies and hordes of channelers the Light has will beat them fairly easily, and the forsaken are simply outnumbered 500-to-1 by the Light channelers. how can the shadow win? the empire was about to destroy the rebellion, Sauron was about to kill the remaining Free Peoples, all bad guys are about to win when they get spanked. it is suspenseful, but there is little such suspense in Wheel of Time when the main character can effortlessly identify Darkfriends and slaughter armies.
