    This is a collection of tweets mostly from PRK about answers Brandon gave at SwanCon in Perth. PRK was too busy running the con to write up a report.

    Brandon Sanderson (4 April 2012)

    Walked along the water in Perth today. I was not attacked by a single snake, spider, or shark. Australia, you're letting me down.

    BRANDON SANDERSON

    Also, PRK from #swancon did indeed warn me about drop-bears. I will be sure to wear vegemite behind my ears to protect myself.

    PRK

    Had a very lovely dinner at Bonsai with @BrandSanderson and @mdepierres—they're fantastic guests! #Swancon is going to be awesome.

    In The Gathering Storm, Egwene was mostly RJ, Rand mostly Brandon. In Towers of Midnight, Mat mostly RJ, Perrin mostly Brandon.

    Brandon Sanderson

    PRK (7 APRIL 2012)

    Brandon tried to get moments for every character in A Memory of Light. Egwene is ready to be bad ass in the Last Battle; her character development is done.

    PRK

    Perth Exclusive for #WoT counted scenes by viewpoint. Rand has the most viewpoints in A Memory of Light, not a huge margin. Others tied.

    PRK

    Caveat, still revising A Memory of Light, so that can change.

    LISA-MAREE BARBA

    It's not much but Brandon S just told me that Lan has the most POVs in A Memory of Light, only just ahead of Rand. But that could change with editing.

    PRK

    I thought he said Rand ahead of the other main characters?

    TEREZ

    That doesn't even make sense. :s Sure, Lan is vital, but it's hard to see how the story could focus on him that much.

    PRK (8 APRIL)

    Confirmed it was Rand with the highest number of POV scenes in A Memory of Light (at the moment).

    Footnote

    It might be that Brandon said Rand was first just ahead of Lan, and Lisa-Maree mixed them up, but it seems somewhat unlikely.

    The Padan Fain / Mordeth hybrid will be in A Memory of Light.

    PRK

    Got a RAFO on how the Mordeth/Fain Hybrid influences the Black Wind.

    Terez (7 April 2012)

    Ask him if there is a Waygate anywhere near Lugard. We suspect that Ogier-built Shaemal was somewhere in Murandy.

    PRK

    Why does it matter where Shaemal is?

    TEREZ

    It only matters because of the possibility of a Waygate in Murandy, which is why I phrased the question the way I did.

    TEREZ

    It has to do with the theory that Roedran is Demandred. ;)

    PRK

    Okay, I'll ask that one next time!

    Brandon Sanderson

    PRK (8 APRIL)

    Answer re Lugard Waygate: "*chuckles* That's clever! Anything I say will give away too much, so I'll have to RAFO that one."

    Terez (8 April 2012)

    Ask him if the manner of the Aiel service to the Aes Sedai in the Age of Legends was just Singing, or if it was also domestic.

    TEREZ

    As a follow-up you could ask him if female Voices were also used in non-Earthy scenarios, i.e. to enhance saidar in particular?

    TEREZ

    And ask him if non-Aiel could really have the Voice (assuming the type that enhances channeling) or if Lews Therin was just confused.

    Brandon Sanderson

    PRK

    Lews Therin was confused about time and place, but what he was saying was possible.

    PRK

    There was more than just singing, but Brandon wasn't willing to go into it. Unsure if that was RAFO or irrelevance.

    PRK

    Brandon said he wasn't willing to talk much about the Voice things. I got the sense it was a subtle RAFO.

    Convinced @BrandSanderson to try the Kangaroo—not sure if he liked it or was being polite. #WeEatOurNationalFauna #Australia
