Apparently factions might be having issues right now...if you can get one to go through, I'll be jealous.

Oh, I was just assuming that there was going to be a hiatus on new-book factions for a while yet.

Well, mine isn't new book based...and it still hasn't appeared in the "Pending" section of the "my factions" page...I'm going to email Tam later tonight and see if I can get a response...

He supposedly fixed this problem a few weeks ago. When did you submit it? I had the same problem, but then he supposedly fixed it, and I resubmitted the faction (Rand Will Die), and now it's up of course.

Weird. Yeah, definitely bring it to his attention that the problem is back.

Also, I have a friend who is going to the signing tomorrow in CA, and he's going to try to clear up the Mesaana contradiction. I also gave him the list I posted above, but told him that the priority should definitely be the Mesaana confusion.

I bet we get a CoT style repeat of that sequence of events showing just that.

Default Is Egwene Ta'vern or has she been aided by ta'veren effect?

I don't recall how long ago it was that RJ said there were no female ta'veren in the series, although female ta'veren are possible. IIRC, it was in response to a question of whether Egwene was ta'veren.

I'm just reading Egwene's meeting with Meidani and Meidani's reactions -- as well as the reactions of the other three Aes Sedai Egwene had lessons with earlier -- look a lot like ta'veren effect.

So, Has Egwene become ta'veren since RJ denied she was ta'veren or has the ta'veren effect of having three ta'veren abroad in the world assisted her dealings with the tower Aes Sedai.

An ancillary question: Is Egwene's Soul bound to the Horn of Valere; Is she a "Hero Incarnate."

When the Horn was sounded, only non-channellers appeared, correct? We know the Dragon is a Hero, and a channeller. How many Heroes can channel?

We don't know that all of them were non-channelers. It seems likely that at least a few of them are.

Hmm. Many are described with their weapons, and there was the comment "Is that all there are?". I suppose there could have been a channeler hidden among them.

Just under a hundred Heroes showed up at Falme, but only about a dozen were identified. We have no idea of who the other heroes might be or what their abilities are.

I'd be very surprised to find that Rand was the only Hero with the ability to Channel.

My question is more about the ta'veren-like improbabilities in Egwene's storyline -- especially when dealing with the BA Hunters/Sitters.

Well, since we know channeling is a matter of channeling soul + channeling genes, it's entirely possible that none of them can channel in their aspect as a Hero of the Horn.

Even if there were channelers there, I got the impression that they were all using weapons--weapons that were "enhanced" like Birgette's arrows. The OP couldn't touch them when they were charging the Seachan. It would be a little "unfair" if the channelers among the Heroes were able to hit the Seanchan unfettered.

Well, Jason did some work today (obviously), so you can always try it. If it shows up in your pending factions, then he fixed it.

That'd be a negatory.

1) How is a Sept Chief chosen, and do they visit Rhuidean like the clan Chief's do?

2) Is it possible that any Channelers from the Age of Legends put themselves into Stasis boxes to last through the Breaking or even the War of Power?

3)How did the Aiel choose Wise Ones other than those who could channel/dream?
