Default One I meant to ask a long time ago

A pet speculation on my part: Did Ishamael help establish the Aes Sedai three oaths?

Default Question

I think a good question to ask is: How did Cadsuane know that Tam was with Perrin? It's like there was a missing scene somewhere in the book.

Sulin was with Perrin at the beginning of the book, and halfway through she shows up with Rand and Co. This is the same chapter (Chapter 37) in which Cadsuane suggests that Nynaeve find Perrin. So we can assume that Sulin filled the Wise Ones in as to what was going on. But how did Sulin get back to Rand and Co. to begin with?

My guess would be YES, with his influence through the Black Ajah. It totally seems like an Ishy plot. Please ask that question even though its likely a RAFO or a BS "I have no idea, I'd have to ask Charleston" (IHNIIHTAC)

I'm sure I'll get some time to ask Brandon TGS questions, assuming everyone at the Dinner has read the book...so...time to pick the top questions.

I do not recall any proof that this claim is true, though. However, I do remember evidence of the size of the balefire used impacts the depth into the Pattern is destroyed. The greater the Balefire size, the greater the depth backwards in time destroyed.
IIRC, the effects(removing back in time) of BF depend on the channeler's strength and not the size of the weave used in BF. There's a quote by Moiraine in FoH to that effect i think. I'll try get it tonight if I'm not too tired. Its not a very certain thing though.

BFing a whole city means taking a lot of threads out of the pattern. That seems to be the reason why the pattern unravels to me rather than time BFed backwards. But I haven't really thought about this.

Then again we're not certain if there are limits to the pattern's ability to compensate for the BF event. We'll assume there is, since the aol AS thought the pattern was unravelling.

I guesss BS will probably be able to tell us at least if the pattern has limits in compensating for BF. I mean if the pattern can remove actions done, say ten years past from the pattern and still remain intact.

Maybe.

I think this is the quote you were thinking of
Quote:
TITLE: Fires of Heaven
CHAPTER: 6 - Gateways
"Sometimes it is necessary to do that which is forbidden." If she was flustered, it did not show in her voice. "When anything is destroyed with balefire, it ceases to exist before the moment of its destruction, like a thread that burns away from where the flame touched it. The greater the power of the balefire, the further back in time it ceases to exist. The strongest I can manage will remove only a few seconds from the Pattern. You are much stronger. Very much so."

Yup. Tanx.

Slightly different than I remebered so its strength entirerly in Moiraine's pov.

Speaking of strength, I think BS might tell us the strength of a few of the more prominent characters especially the male forsaken and Rand.
Is Rand as strong as a man can be now and has he stopped gaining? Is the Dragon always the strongest man of the age?

And that time question if he doesn't RAFO it. Is it possible to time travel with the OP?

Wasn't Ishamael LTT's equal in OP Strength?

Overall, it would make sense that they were completely equal.

Ishy was said to be next to the Dragon in the aol but does that mean he and Logain are at par? And who's next? Among the forsaken, I got the impressiom that aginor was next:

While it could be argued that Lanfear might be stronger, I personally think this is right. But his dealings with other forsaken does not lend any weight to him being next to Ishy.

And that's just one example. While strength rating doesn't mean all that much in a duel (skill/angreal/links/tricks/amulets...) it would still be nice for speculation before the end of the series.

Tam: In the case if Brandon answers anything about LTT, please ask him more questions.

Like:
-Did Rand had any control about the voice?
-Why was it gone in TAR?
-Is it the authentic voice?
-How did the voice happen? Like taint or construct?

If I am correct, you have a signing / tonight, tam?

Default Questions I plan to ask at Dinner

Some of the storm leaders have not read or finished the book, so I plan to gear my questions around balefire calculations and finns (and their treaties).

Other thoughts for good but non spoiler questions?

I figure I can ask if Jordan left a Balefire calculation between time and power. And follow ups regarding the power amplification of the CK.

Additionally, I figure I can ask about the treaties with the Foxes and the Snakes, if and how they differ.

Traveling with the TP is different from doing so with the OP. Is balefire different as well when using the TP?

Do the *finns care whether the DO "wins" or not?

Cadsuane makes the point that if the DO wins, there is no future to read. That is fortellings, Min's readings, etc will not come to pass. I suppose the same would be true regarding the *finn's answers.

Another one (may be RAFO though)

Are the dark prophecies true prophecies?

Book 12 connection: I believe Verin's writings include all the dark prophecies she could dig up.

Here's a couple. Most likely to be RAFO'ed.

- It seems that Rand's "Cleansing" on Dragonmount burned a lot of the darkness out of him that we have been seeing since book 3. Does this mean that his wounds will start to heal now?

- (Two Parter) We know that the Karaethon Cycle and the Essanik Cycle are different. Is that because there were different contributors to each, or some other reason (like tampering by Ishy)? Which is more correct?

Could you clarify the 'gauntlet' thing? The detail was introduced in books 4-6? The detail has been present in books since? The detail will come to light in Towers of Midnight?

I'm not sure if Brandon was vague on these things, or just the person who paraphrased the question/answer.

I've always wondered why there are three Oaths. It seems to me that you could just swear not to tell a lie on the oath rod, and then swear the other two just using words and they would be just as binding without the lifespan cut in half deal.

Isabel, I am considering going to the one in Dayton OH on 11/11. I got a signed book, but I would like it personalized, and now that I have read it twice and followed his comments on the signings and Facebook, I would very much like to meet him in person.

So maybe.
