See you are the WOT Guru!
see what a photographic memory will get you!?
anyone else have a question for sideshow the amazing WOTcyclopedia?
I know what gentling is but what is binding? People are referring to it in the context of man and woman, Aes Sedai and Warder....is it like marriage?
Gotta love bonding. It's when the Aes Sedai weaves saidar and creates a psychic - or rather, empathic - bond between herself and her warder. They can't read each other's minds, but they're always aware of what the other is feeling, and can even point in the general direction of where that person is (when separated). If the bond is broken (usually by the death of one of them), then the other person is VERY distraught - to the point where Warders will often commit suicide, and the Aes Sedai won't bond another Warder (or will wait an unbelievably long time to do so).
Have I confused everyone yet?
you got most of it kreleia, the men also get strengh and stamina increases from being bonded, and both parties have the ability to draw power from the other...
and gentling is when an aes sedai permenantly (not really permanent anymore, it can be healed) cuts of a man who can channel from using teh power. they usually commit suicide shortly after this happens
WOT whos who after death in order of Revocation of life privlages.
Balthamel becomes Osan'Gar who mascarades as Dashiva
Aginor becomes Aran'Gar
Bel'al is Balefired and is very dead.
Ishmael becomes Moradin
Asmodean is just dead. maybe killed by Luc?
Lanfear becomes Cyndane.
Rhavin and Sammale are Balefired and are all the way dead.
Some new theorys Proven and that I picked up.
It takes Saidin to heal the ability to channel Saidar fully, and it takes Saidar to fully heal the ability to channel Saidin.
I have a theory that Leane and Suiane are going to get stilled and healed to full again. <--- I'd go through the pain for the power.
I am having caniption fits trying to figure out Verin. Both she and Cadsuane are something tricky.... very tricky.
Cyndane gives confirmation to Mins viewing about the return of Morianne. In winters heart she gives mention of being held by the Elefinn and Alefinn.
I have a feeling that a greatdeal of the Damane will be freed when It becomes known that Tuon, Daughter of the Nine Moons and Wife of Mat, can channel. Cause mat won't put up with it... Then again, he might....
now, you know what I do with my time....
i agree with *most* of that...
i also think that the crystal throne that the empress of seanchan sits on is some sore of ter'angreal, that causes awe or obedience or something...
Once again I'm stunned...RJ is just a genius...that's all there is to it.
I'm so glad I started reading this series!! It KICKS!
And thanks for explaining the binding to me..very cool.
word home-skillet, it's Ã¼berkrispy!
All right, im giving in to Peer Pressure.
Does anyone have of copy of the WoT 1st book I can borrow to read?
ask and ye shall recieve! i have the whole series to date, mostly in hardcover. LJC is borrowing some of mine, but she is up to fires of heaven, so you can bum my copy of Eye of the World. when void gets me back my copy of villains by necessity, i will get it to you...
Yee haw! Another newbie!
I am also a newbie. Though I bought the first one, I have yet to read it.
Ducks at the onslaught of rotten veggies and fruit sure to come his way.
Read it, Damn you!
[hurls rotten tomatoes]
Okay, you know you're obsessed when you start dreaming WoT. Yes, kids, it happened today. While I was bed-ridden for most of the day trying to regain some semblance of strength (and begging Rob to come home from work early), I dreamed about Rand cleansing saidin. How scary is that!? (and it was an *interesting* dream) I've been passionately reading "Path" for hours since then, trying to get it finished. I only have 2Â½ chapters left. I can hardly wait to jump into "Winter's Heart"!!
sweeeet... heh i told wench that when she is reading about mat she has to invision him as me! haha!
Thing is, the more WoT I read Josh, the more I picture you as Mat too. Look what you're doing to us!!!
I've actually started calling sideshow Mat! [face_shocked] It's spooky isn't it when you discover that someone could actually BE someone else?!
He's definately Mat if anyone is. I can just see him with that dagger....
EEK!!! I just finished the prologue in "Winter's Heart" and - OMG!!! The whole re-birthing of Elayne and Aviendha... **tears up** WOW!!! **sniff** It's amazing!! The first time I read it, I was pregnant, and I just started bawling. This time, no bawling, but the tears were there. That whole scene is just absolutely incredible!!! Definitely one of my faves in the entire series!
blood and bloody ashes! that sideshow guy is almost as cool as me!
It's Mat!!! *SWOON*
I love it when he says "Blood and bloody ashes!"
Well, you've all done it. You've forced me to go out and pick up a copy of The Eye of the World. Of course, I have to get caught up with the current Doctor Who novels first, then The New Jedi Order .... But I can sleep now knowing I have a series to fall back on!
WOO HOOO!!!!! Another convert! Forget all those other books, except maybe the New Jedi Order, and just start with The Eye of the World.
You're about to become an addict my friend.
Master Duron jumps into the thread
Stay away from the spoilers
A coin for you, Mat. **hands him a Tar Valon mark** You and I really should share a game of Snakes and Foxes, don't you think?
