Thanks! That might count as an accidental confirmation.

I don't have the book with me - is there any specific indication of clouds breaking when Avienda is in Rhuidean? Because the timing of that also has implications re the theory that the future she sees is based on pre- Jesus Rand. If she sees that bleak future even after Rand's Dragonmount revelation...

Yes. It's as I said.

That theory was dumb either way. The scene would have been totally pointless, for one. For another, if Rand hadn't made the right choice on Dragonmount, he would have destroyed the Pattern. One path leads to the Last Hunt; the other path leads to nothing.

a) Kudos on the great report.

b) Spherical Gateways?! Why didn't I think of that...?

Pictures added via URLs video uploading currently on youtube! I hope I can figure out how to actually imbed them in the post and I added dead narg by brandon sanderson as my avatar which makes me feel immensely cool .

I am very curious too about whether gateways need to be flat or not now... I don't THINK we've seen them any other shape. It might have been mentioned somewhere in the books that they're always flat.

I remember reading somewhere (maybe it was Asmo Sedai) that the One Power didn't have much to do with gateways, just the making of them. Which is why there is a limit to how big a single man can make one, et cetera. That isn't proof that you couldn't make a circular gateway but seems like it would need a totally different weave.

Thanks for the pics and videos, Jonathan! I didn't remember that you'd taken any pictures on the Magic card opening/signing, and yes, you got it: that's the card with the barbarian chick just before I signed it

I'll try and upload one or two videos myself, from the Brandon's introduction by the shop's personnel and from the reading
