An Hour With Harriet

2012-04-30: I had the great pleasure of speaking with Harriet McDougal Rigney about her life. She's an amazing talent and person and it will take you less than an hour to agree.

Adding to this, based on a couple of thing's I've read that Sanderson has said recently.

It seems that this sigil is Sammael's sigil (it's on the back of his throne in t'a'r in tFoH), and yet it also appears on the palace in the BT at the end of KoD.

Sanderson has said that the DO would like to bring Sammael back, but can't because he died by mashadar.

Taim was an arrogant bastard in LoC and aCoS, and didn't turn outright evil until somewhere in tPoD, after Sammael died.

The BT now has a very bleak, nasty feel to it, rather like Aridhol, maybe.

I know, a pretty tenuous theory, but isn't this the place for those?

MOre info on the sigils is to be found at the 13th depository. Their article on this is quite extensive... Be'lal had the same sigil btw...

It was also seen on the door of Be'lal carriage in "TDR".

And all three of the times we have seen it, Be'lal, Sammael and Taim, it has been a different color of metal. I believe it was Gold, Silver and Steel.

stealing gonzo's idea from another thread a bit here (sorry mate )

Mat's ashandarei is a gift he never asked for from the finns but he still got it. And that is always around

it is a special power wrought blade, the ravens have some meaning, probabaly something with the tower of ravens, tower of ghenjei hey two towers.... aah wild guess

But if we're following the Vin's earring hint, shouldn't we be looking at something having to do with Rand? I guess Mat's ashandarei is something, but what about Alanna's bond? It's been discussed, but not overly so, and wasn't even mentioned in book 12. I haven't got any other ideas...

We are trying to avoid mentioning that hint outright, out of respect for the people who haven't read Mistborn yet (it would spoil a great deal of the series, don't you think?), but as to your question....not necessarily. Also, the bond really isn't comparable as a minor detail, and we've discussed it to death.

THIS
It does, it did, and I still wish I had had a chance to figure it out on my own when I read Mistborn. I am positive I would have figured it out anyways, but since I had been previously spoiled on it before I read that series, I can't claim I figured it out. Really really annoying, that. Off-topic: (Though I did figure out who the "narrator" at the beginning of every chapter was about 1/8th through Hero of Ages [That is, before we had any real knowledge other than his word usage])
The thing about limiting it to Rand is that while he's THE main character, we also have a good 3 or 4 or 5 other main characters that have only fractions less importance (and in many cases are absolutely required for Rand's success). So the detail doesn't necessarily have to rest with the Main main character, IMO...(but Terez already said that...I was just adding fluff to my post so as to avoid having a 100% off-topic post... )

I don't think we've ever had a real Faile bathing scene, have we? That could be an important detail no one noticed before.

IIRC, I don't think Faile has the right bust for proper WoT bathing scene. I'm sorry, I mean bosom.
