  1. The Asha'man attacks on Rand in Far Madding were ACTUALLY sent by Moridin himself. Though, to see whether Moridin could actually be Mazrim Taim or not, just look at the first time Moridin comes into existence versus Taim's first appearance. It would make tons of sense, but I doubt the connection.
  2. Noal Charin is Jain Farstrider's cousin. Or so he claims; most speculate he is actually Jain Farstrider. Edit: This seems like the wrong spot to put this; I'm not sure. Hoping a moderator can decide and move/not move this topic. :-[
  3. Makes perfect sense. Explains everything in a somewhat confusing way, but it makes sense! Kudos!
  4. Balefire - weave of the Power discovered and used liberally by both sides during the War of Power for nearly a year. After that, both sides stopped using it, without a truce or anything. Entire cities were burned out by this. The Pattern continued, and the Wheel kept on spinning. Hmm.. Imagine it all as a sort of water driven spinning wheel. The water = the One Power that drives the Wheel, the Wheel has seven spokes, representing each an Age, and both spin out the Pattern, a specific network of lives that are, were and will be lived. Balefire then, if applied to this analogy, is the same as it is described - 'the cutting of threads permanently from the Pattern.' It's like cutting threads with a pair of scissors from the thread being spun into the "Blanket of Ages." There are holes, everywhere, marking where Balefire was used - War of Power, some instances by Moiraine, Rand, etc. The Pattern continues to spin despite this permanant removal of thread(s). What was done prior by the person (thread) burned from the Pattern, depending on the amount of Power used against them to weave Balefire, will revert the actions of the slain person back to a certain point. It is impossible to drive back what a person did entirely (Rahvin) - only from minutes to days - No one could possibly wield that much of the Power, even with the Choedhan Kal. However, if a thread is burned, then the Pattern continues regardless. Those who witness the occurence of Balefire being used WILL REMEMBER the ACTION, and the PEOPLE, PLACE, THINGS, ETC, that were there before they were 'Balfire'd' from the Pattern. But, as Nynaeve's sinking boat, Moghedien balefire'd it in half - it went from floating to sinking and near underwater in a moment. Thus it burned the thread that showed the boat being cut in half, and it's first moments of sinking. Balefire is like a NUCLEAR MISSILE - dangerous to control, dangerous to use, dangerous to study, BUT easy to wipe out entire civilizations if wished.. Insanity, grief, and madness, as well as the permanent removal of past lives that were balefired removes them permanently from the Pattern, erasing any possible future lives they could have lived.
  5. My Theory on Moridin being the other person LTT talks of: Moridin - or Elan Morin Tedronai, as his past body was called, was equal to Lews Therin Telamon in the Power. He was also the first to propose the theory that the battle between the Dark One and the Creator had gone on forever, in a never-ending cycle - both using human surrogates. Elan Morin soon turned to the dark, and became Ishamael. He was the Dark Lord's champion, just as Lews Therin had been for the Light. More than likely, if not for Lews Therin's existence, and the War of Power had still come into play, Elan Morin Tedronai would have become the being known as the Dragon. Then again, that could just be all hoohah. We know Moridin wants Rand alive at the Last Battle; he's never stopped trying to turn Rand to the Dark, just as he never stopped trying to turn LTT as Ishamael. He could have also possibly 'linked' with LTT in the past Age as he had with Rand in Shadar Logoth. This would explain how he was able to find LTT possibly, in TEotW Prologue, as well as finding Rand, LTT's reincarnation, at various points of the books. Either Moridin turns him, kills him, or is killed.
  6. Six Gholam were created by Aginor; Three male, three female, and unfortunately one survived in a stasis box Sammael found. Eventually Mat or someone will figure out that silver is what burns it..then they'll make nothing but silver arrows and sword xD At least until it dies.
  7. They had the Singing - involved Ogier, Nym, and Da'shain Aiel 'linked' in a circle, "singing" the One Power into the crops, protecting them from blight, disease, and maximizing their nutritional and growth capacity. We know this from Rand's various depictions of the Aiel's past in Rhuidean. There was also a ter'angreal Aviendha 'read' that had to do with this in KoD
  8. All of them. The Forsaken... Why are evil/insane people always so cool yet so flawed? :-[
  9. "The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass..." Everything DOES GO IN CIRCLES :o
  10. But Guaire Amalasan also channeled using tainted saidin. Perhaps he's who Lews Therin often refers to as us? 'You, me,and the other one' LTT quote - Not exactly as stated, but still.
  11. Lews Therin's voice in Rand's head is a result of his being the Dragon Reborn. LTT was the Dragon in the Age preceding Rand's, and thus there are two souls in one body - Rand and LTT. Otherwise the slow blending of the two's souls wouldn't give Rand several quirks (thumbing his earlobe and humming at pretty women) and talents he has now (drawing, saidin weaves - Blossoms and Arrows of Fire, the Mask of Mirrors, Gateways, Skimming, Using Callandor to kill all of the Shadowspawn in TSR in the Stone of Tear..) only LTT would know, or an Aes Sedai from the AoL, or a Forsaken..) , or the overlapping memories between him and LTT. Lews Therin Telamon's a real voice in Rand's head.
  12. I usually read most books at about 100 pages an hour, so probably 7-9 hours in reading most of the WoT books. Surprisingly, I'm able to keep track of everything that's going on. I'm currently on WH - recapping in the wait for The Gathering Storm to come to my house.
  13. Just look at the continent of Seanchan before Luthair Paendrag and his descendants took it over. It was full of scheming female Aes Sedai who continued to turn against and ally one another for their own goals. Then he was given the a'dam. After that, he never had a problem with women channelers. ;D Male Channelers wouldn't have made the Three Oaths, or used subtle influence to pull the strings of politics. They'd get right down to the point by calling together their army, Traveling to the warring countries, and absorb it into the Male Channeler's Domain. The End.
  14. If not for the Da'shain Aiel, Ogier, and Nym Singing..... How would you FEED that many people come harvest time... Now I see why Aginor made Trollocs. :P
  15. The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass. What was, what is, and what shall be may yet fall under the Shadow. Let the Dragon be Reborn on the winds of Time. May you find water and shade when you awaken from the dream, Rector.
