Q: Moiraine words the Third Oath "I vow that I will never use the One Power as a weapon except against Shadowspawn, or in the last extreme of defending my life or that of my Warder or another sister." (NS 11) This ...wording of the Oath is supported by the reswearing of the Oaths by Pevara and Seaine (tPoD 26), and the BWB (24), among other sources.

Egwene words the oath "I vow that I will never use the One Power as a weapon except against Darkfriends and Shadowspawn, or in the last extreme of defending my life or that of my Warder or of another sister." (TGS 43) The 'Darkfriend clause' is supported by Sheriam (tGH 23), Alanna (tSR 31), Niall (tDR Pr), Rand (tFoH 2, 41), and also implications by Moiraine (NS 2) and the BWB (14).

RAFO, or error? And, if error, which is the correct wording?

A: Brandon said he had to make sure he got the wording right for the oaths, so he went back and copied it word for word from the previous books. Maria was the one that changed it saying RJ decided that Darkfriends should have always been included in the oaths.

This whole conversation happened via Facebook PM, but I will provide screenshots if necessary, lol....

Edit: here's a link to where I sent the shout-out, and here are screenshots of the relevant PMs (we only talked about it in PM because it was a TGS spoiler so I didn't want to post the question on Brandon's page):

Another report from the same signing, posted on Dragonmount:

http://forums.dragonmount.com/index....tml#msg1399911

Went to the signing in Idaho Falls today and asked BS if we had seen Demandred's alter ego on screen and he gave me a R.A.F.O. card and said that Demandred's identity is the biggest secret in the series and will pay off in the end. I asked if the pacing would be the same in TofM as it was in TGS and he said that TGS was like books 1-3 and TofM would be like 4-6. I'm not sure if this is new or not but thought I'd post it.
