On my first reread and early in the opening when Mat mentions the dark rider to Rand and suggests it might've been the Dark One, Rand goes to into a recital: “The Dark One and all of the Forsaken are bound in Shayol Ghul, beyond the Great Blight, bound by the Creator at the moment of Creation, bound until the end of time. The hand of the Creator shelters the world, and the Light shines on us all.” The story passed down the generations says that the dark one was bound in Shayol Ghul at the ...

I'm reading the books for the first time and rushed through the first book. I'm halfway through The Great Hunt and I am beyond disappointed at the way Egwen and Elayne are shown to become friends. This is the part that bothers me: “I really do like you,” she said abruptly, including both girls in her gesture. “I want to be your friend.” “And I want to be yours,” Elayne said. Impulsively, Egwene hugged her, and then Min jumped down, and the three of them stood there on the bridge hugging ...

Finding myself in the emptiness that follows when finishing this great piece of work. And so I turn myself to this subreddit as it accompanied me through the last year. I wanted to add my thoughts to all the others written down here. When I finished the Wheel of Time the first time I was only focused on the story. This time I got deeper into the idea behind the story. I think I will do my next reread/rehear in probably 3 years. So now to what I figured in this go through. The idea of the...

Not sure if anyone has posted this yet but who would everyone like to see play their favourite characters. Edit: I have been informed that this question has been asked before so how about the locations. What locations does everyone think they should be filming in submitted by /u/u_mutt [link] [comments]

So, let me preface this by saying it's been a LONG time since I read the books all the way through without skipping around here and there. That said, I'm trying a full reread and as I was going through TGH Taim was mentioned up in Saldaea and it got me thinking. Is it ever stated that he was always a dark friend or is it possible that he was the first one turned using the 13 myrddraal 13 channelers technique? Maybe after he was freed or even before he was freed if all the Aes Sedai that ...

Spoilers for the whole series and ending within: Does anyone else feel that we didn't get the real ending to the story--that in the end, RJ left a lot up to BS and so therefore what we ended up reading was well informed fan fiction? I know that RJ dragged out the series and we all lost faith, but then he started to tie it up in Knife of Dreams. The fact that there is an ending makes Crossroads of Twilight more enjoyable. But as far as I understand, RJ's notes were actually kind of...

So like many people, I read and re-read the end of EotW trying to piece together exactly what happened to Rand. I have one question. Rand was afraid he would go mad because of the saidin he channeled from the Eye, but the saidin in the Eye was supposedly free of the taint. I know Rand unknowingly channeled the One Power a handful of times throughout the book. Was that why he was afraid in the end? What did I miss? submitted by /u/blazikickass [link] [comments]

Hello everyone! I'm still on my first read through, about halfway done with Lord of Chaos. I have just a few questions about the graphic novel series. How many volumes are there total? Is it JUST Eye Of The World? Is there a package deal that contains all the novels? How do the novels compare to the books? As in are there scenes left out, or plot lines? I've never gotten into graphic novels, but Wheel of Time has completely engulfed my life and want more material! submitted ...

So I finished A Memory of Light a while ago (and started rereading; up to tSR already). Even though I have a ton of criticisms for aMoL, they're not really interesting enough to warrant a post. So instead I thought I'd list the stuff I really loved in aMoL, because I haven't seen them discussed to death on here. Here goes. Maybe my favorite scene in the whole book was Logain rescuing the civilians and breaking the seals. I've been really interested in Logain's story ever...

Does anyone else believe the Shenchan total conquest is almost inevitable? We were only given one glimpse into the future through Avienda, however there are a lot more factors at play to the situation than just the Aiel. The Seafolk will have as much of an ax to grind against the Shenchan as the Aiel did, and with the Shenchan civil war in full swing across the ocean, it also leaves the question of what their power will be like after the last battle. Just from what I’ve read online and from...

I have been trying to find all of the jpeg files for every card in the WoT CCG. I have all of the officially released cards saved, but I am missing some from the Missing Link Expansion: A Sign of Hope. I would be more than happy to trade w anyone who has card files I am missing, or who is interested in getting into the game. Here is a list of jpeg files from the MLE expansion that I am looking for: Darkfriend Traitors, Darkhounds, Aiel War Veterans, Alviarin Freidhan, Ashaman Scouts, Ashaman...

First, I've just finished these awesome books after 1 year and a half, and oh god, it was truly incredible, I don't even know where I should start.. Thankfully, this subreddit is full of interesting threads and additional information which I will absorb in the coming days before the time comes to part ways (for a time before my reread anways:P) with this world... But there is one thing I noticed and which I haven't found here: After the Last Battle Moghedien runs around alone...

Hi All, I'm a little confused about the development of Mat's abilities. The first book seems to indicate that Mat has, for want of a better, term genetic memory. "The blood of Manetheren" That he can speak the old tongue and this is tied to who his ancestors are. As the books develop he is shown to be able to speak fragments. According to the wiki he also has memories of the "Battle of the Tarendrelle River". However after the second visit to the "Finn"...

Hey all, I am in the middle of book three of my second read/listen through. I wanted to discuss about what you all thought the format would be at adapting from book to screen? I'm thinking books 1-3 could be three seasons. What will be interesting will be what they choose to do with books 4-6 because I think you could have 10 seasons with the material from those books. Hopefully the adaptation is true to the material submitted by /u/Mr_Magoo3421 [link] [comments]

Hello, In Aviendha vision of the future, we can see that Seanchan would win the war against Aiel + westlands. But I don't understand how it would be possible. The war start 17 years after the last battle. I would expect westland to have way more channelers than Seanchan by then. Seanchan channelers only are sparkers. With active recruitement from the white + black tower, westland would have sparkers + a lot of learners. Considering that for 1 sparkers there are 10 learners, you...

Every now and again I find myself doing a search for WoT merchandise to purchase (novelties, artbooks, etc), and it strikes me that this franchise is fairly unique in the near complete absence of anything available to purchase given how massively popular/successful the series has been and continues to be. To my knowledge there have only ever been two official products beyond the books, both very lightly illustrated encyclopedic books about names and places. Anyone else hoping to at least see a...

I was just thinking the other night about how Rand is constantly practicing with the sword, calling on the best swordsmen to face off with him and always honing his abilities, same with Lan. Whereas in LOTR for example you don’t see Aragorn ever really practicing. It just shows the detail Robert Jordan includes. As an example, a master musician will be constantly practicing his instrument as opposed to just waiting until their next concert to pull it out and rely on their skill. I could be off...
