I think I'd disagree. You probably wouldn't say that a ter'angreal channels, per se, but it definitely uses the Power.

Getting back to the point, Aviendha should be able to read a ter'angreal that doesn't need active saidin channeling to activate it. Whether it uses saidin once otherwise activated is besides the point. Her Talent probably locates the activation controls on the ter'angreal and possibly uses spirit to get feedback from the device without actually activating it. That would explain her knowledge of how to use the Growing ter'angreal.

If anyone is interested....the original reporter has in turn disputed the disputer:

Brandon's later answer has to take precedence. He says that he didn't specify directly whether Rand did or did not have the Dark One's permission. That is what everyone must operate by, as his word is now canon. That does not change what I wrote down as my questions were being answered.

As to Writo's comments, I can only offer this. The comment by Brandon about Semirhage believing she had been betrayed was definitely in response to someone else's question. It did not come up with mine, but I do remember hearing it.

I did ask Brandon about this when I had my chance - he was very specific and clear in his answer.

'It's very difficult to channel the TP without the DO's permission.'

I followed up with 'but not impossible'

He said 'but not impossible'.

I don't like the idea that Graendal is still alive. I know, it creates dramatic suspense, but I don't see the point in killing someone off and bringing them back in a very roundabout way. Anyone remember "Who shot J.R.?"

I don't care, I'm sticking with my hypothesis that the Dark One gave Rand permission. I'm probably wrong, but I'll wait for an upcoming book to tell me.

Has there been an in depth discussion about this? I know that someone mentioned it right after tGS came out, but everyone seemed to come to the conclusion that it was a mistake. In any case, now that we know it was no mistake, is it an issue of time lines or is something fishy going on?

Supposedly it's just a timeline issue, but I'm still confused about it. If contact had already been made with Perrin's group, then why did Nynaeve have to try so hard to find them?

It might be that Perrin (or the WOs) had sent a few people back to the main Aiel groups, and then had moved somewhere else. In that way, there wouldn't have been continuous contact.

A better question perhaps is: why didn't a WO Dreamwalker touch the dreams of one of Perrin's WOs, and ask her "where are you hanging out now"?
That way Amys (or Bair, or whoever did it) could have cleared the issue up in one night or less.

Can the WO with Perrin dreamwalk? I honestly don't remember. If they can't even if other WO touch their dreams they would not be able to respond back. I doubt a WO would enter a dream of an other WO who can not enter TAR to find out this info.

The WO might view asking where Perrin is as spying. They have odd views of what spying is.

Did anyone ask the WO to find out? If they were not asked, they might not do it on their own. (I'd sooner play Maiden Kiss with a pack of rabid pit bulls than talk to a WO, they scare me)

The WO might not be familiar (in a dream sence) with the WO with Perrin and unable to find them in GOI.

Maybe the WO know, but wont reveal the info cause of some Fortelling or Dream they might have had or know about.

Well, the WOs (Sorilea, which means the WOs) were working together with Cadsuane in the attempt to teach Rand laughter and tears. For that they wanted to find Tam, and in order to find him they needed to find Perrin.
Quote:

When the Dreamwalkers were organising the big meeting where Rand could be acknowledged Car'a'carn, they did speak to other WOs all over the place. Most of those weren't Dreamwalkers themselves, but they did manage to respond.

While your view is understandable (and sensible), I don't think that Sorilea is as bashful as you are. She wanted the information, and it is a legitimate question why she didn't get it.

Did the WO say they contacted them, or did they say they contacted and they responded? I am woundering what the exact wording was when that transpired. At work atm, so need to wait till after sleep to look it up.

It is a verying interesting question why Sorilea did not get it, one to pounder until Terez tells us the answere

This tells us that there were no other dreamwalkers amongst the Aiel, so any response that came was produced by WOs who are no better at it than the WOs with Perrin.

Someone at tor.com brought it to my attention that there were two more reports from the tour that I hadn't added. The first one is here; the second one is a little further down at comment #2577. All quote have been added to the database.

Thanks for the report, however that given link goes directly to comment #2577 at Tor.com, not to whatever is the unknown first comment. It would have helped if you listed that prior comment number at Tor.com.

If you'd actually read comment 2577, you'd see that he references the other post in that comment. The links should be straight in the database.

Yes, I most of that post, Terez. Yet your being a smart*** here. You didn't even answer take up my suggestion, list the other comment number & its link. If you actually do want to find documents, later in life, the links are the key--at least they are to the Internet.


Let see that link you gave loads sloooowwwwlyyyyy and then crashed two different browsers on two different computers. That's a first from Tor.com, its also circa 1993 again bad, as a site.

There is a spot on the WoT Wiki that is designed to keep copies of all the reports in case sites go offline. We're working on completing that as well.

In his defense, I think he is still touchy about the fact that I didn't include his reports in the database. Partly that was because he has misrepresented what Brandon has said before (though, again in his defense, there are language issues not to mention sanity issues). Also partly because no one else cares about the things he tends to ask about, like questions that assume that Valan Luca is a Hero of the Horn, or that Lanfear is not Cyndane.

That is a false accusation, Terez.


Your own Gawyn will kill theory is unrelated to foretellings of the future given in this series. At times, Terez you have put your own head in the sand....
