    Interview: 2010

    Shivam Bhatt (14 July 2010)

    Out of curiosity, do you have a list of the sundry unsolved mysteries in the books? Or untied threads and references?

    Brandon Sanderson (14 July 2010)

    Yes, I do. And, I even have a list of ones Mr. Jordan was planning not to answer or reveal.

    Brandon Sanderson

    Mr. Jordan listed some mysteries in the notes that are NOT to be solved. Perhaps you should try to guess which ones.


    Are they not explained, or are they explicitly noted to refrain from releasing the solution?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Some of each. There's one that I really wish I knew, but he didn't tell anyone, and said no answer is to be given.

    Brandon Sanderson

    As for the mysteries, there are indeed some that Mr. Jordan did not reveal in the notes. All he said was: "This is not revealed."

    Kyle Litka

    A lot of mysteries or just a few? And any major ones (without going into specifics, I know you can't)?

    Brandon SANDERSON

    No major ones, in my opinion, except for a couple of unresolved plot threads he had been saving for the Outriggers.

    Brandon Sanderson

    I can't say much more about mysteries. I've said before that all major plotlines have resolution. Unresolved things are smaller.

    Brandon Sanderson

    If I have my way, the notes Mr. Jordan [left] will be printed after the series is done. At least in part.


    Are the unanswered mysteries at least interesting, or are they like, "who made the baked ham in book 4!"?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Some are very interesting to me.

    4th Age

    Are there also some that ARE revealed in the notes, but have an added "but this doesn't go into the books."?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Yes, there are, at least in implication. Many of these have to do with things I think he was reserving for the Outriggers.

    Brandon Sanderson

    Yes, I will push for that to be in the notes we release, if the Outriggers aren't written.

    Brandon Sanderson (15 July)

    I'm afraid I'm not allowed to show any of the notes right now. Maybe after A Memory of Light. Some may go in the encyclopedia Harriet is doing.

    Callandor (17 July)

    Is the identity of who ordered the attack on Demira Eriff a mystery with an answer? My money is on Taim but surprises are fun.

    Brandon Sanderson (19 July)

    I'm not going to say which ones. But it's good to hear what people are curious about.

    Interview: Oct 11th, 2005


    As he was signing I asked, "Who arranged for the stabbing of Demira Sedai?"

    Robert Jordan

    I got a RAFO. He started to say something, and then said, "No I better's a RAFO."


    I was then hustled out of the way by another Barnes & Noble/Tor clone. End of NYC signing. One question asked one RAFO gotten. I felt kinda cheated.


    It was Fain.

    Interview: Nov 15th, 2009


    Did Verin have anything to do with the attack on Demira Sedai in Caemlyn?

    Brandon Sanderson

    RAFO+. Even though Verin's gone now, so much Verin discussion remains that it shouldn't be disturbed. (He took several seconds deciding to RAFO, if that means anything.)


    The attack on Demira was ordered by Fain.

    Interview: Apr 17th, 2011

    Terez (Callandor)

    Who ordered the attack on Demira Eriff in Lord of Chaos?

    Brandon Sanderson

    I'm going to RAFO that one.


    It was Fain.

    Interview: Apr, 2012


    Who was behind the attack on Demira Sedai?

    Brandon Sanderson


    Maria Simons

    Padan Fain and his corrupted Whitecloaks.

    Interview: Feb 6th, 2013


    Was Verin involved in the attack on Demira Sedai in Caemlyn? If not, was it on orders from the Tower Aes Sedai, or Daved Hanlon, or??

    Brandon Sanderson

    RAFO. There are plenty of "loose ends" that may end up in the encyclopedia, and this is just the sort that I don't want to spoil. There will certainly be some details about Verin in there.


    Maria confirmed that it was Fain's corrupted Whitecloaks who carried out the attack, so it's unlikely Verin or any of the other Darkfriends had anything to do with it.
