Perhaps someone could ask if Egwene's Seanchan woman and running person dreams have been fulfilled?

Dunno, would you be willing to ask a Lews Therin question? If so, ask him why the voice was gone when Rand was in Tel'aran'rhiod. Well, we know it's because the pieces of himself fit together better there, but maybe he'll say something else about it. And as a follow-up question, ask him if the same would be the case if Rand went to Tel'aran'rhiod in the flesh.

I'd say the question about the dreams would take priority tho. He's been pretty reticent on Lews Therin, but he has confirmed that the Rand-beggar vision is fulfilled, so there's a good chance he'll answer the dream question straight out.

Mayo: Confirm again that in RJ's notes there wasn't anything that said if LTT was real or not.
and can you confirm that RJ didn't intend to reveal anything about it?

Terez, I don't think that the meeting with Elan took place in TAR. More importantly, perhaps: Rand thinks that it didn't, he remarks to himself that it feels differently.
Which is ironical, in a way: when Ishamael was trying to figure out which of the three boys was LTT, he did so in a place where that would be less easy to determine than almost anywhere else we know of.

fix'd

And I might be able to do that. I'm not a big fan of the real vs. construct debate, but I guess I can try to confirm that. Also, it's Mato.

Gonzo, so what, was it in a Vacuole or something?

Good question, to which we can only answer: we do not know.

Until tGS, we had not much reason to doubt the seemingly obvious assumption that it happened in TAR. I think there is one Forsaken meeting which takes place in a similar (or the same) place, and of that it is thought by one of the Forsaken that it is close to Shayol Ghul. But I don't think that we had been given reason to think that is where Ishamael met the boys, until this scene.

I think it's probably the 'near Shayol Ghul' bit that makes it feel different.

Default Atlanta Signing

I'm probably going to a signing tonight w/ BS (and Harriet I think) in a 'burb NE of Atlanta.

Looking for a suggestion on questions. Not sure which from this thread have been asked already.

Well, there's a faction war you could put to rest. Ask him if all Heroes are ta'veren at some point when they are spun out, or not. In other words, is ta'veren the means by which Heroes are 'corrective mechanisms', or are they corrective mechanisms in some other way?

Faction war has been put to rest. Heroes are not always Ta'veren. Go looky at the Dallas Signing thread for more info.

Default Moar questions!

Most of these are from factions. Some aren't.

Did the reintegration constitute a 'death' for Lews Therin? Does this fulfill Min's touch/merge viewing? Does this fulfill the 'Finns' 'to live you must die'?

In the Age of Legends, was Lanfear artificially enhanced to be either stronger in the Power, or more beautiful?

Why is Lanfear weaker in the Power now that she's been transmigrated as Cyndane?

Was the Warder bond originally created as an attempt to control male channelers?

Did Verin have anything to do with Alanna bonding Rand?

One previous (and contested) signing report says that RJ stated the time loop trap (with the flies) in The Great Hunt was set by Fain. Is this true?

In the lives where Heroes don't do 'anything extraordinary' (BS's words), are they still 'corrective mechanisms'?

Can Darkfriends be Heroes of the Horn? (I think this is a dumb question, but some people actually argue that they can be.)

Was Tuon already aware that sul'dam could learn to channel, or did she just learn that after arriving on the Randland continent?

Are the gholam also immune to the True Power?

Possible RAFOs, but it can't hurt to ask:

Since all of the rebels' ter'angreal were confirmed missing, why was Sheriam missing a finger (or possibly more than one finger)?

Can burned-out channelers be Healed?

Is the Book of Translation a guide to the Portal Stones?

Did transmigration (as in, the way some Forsaken were brought back from the dead) have anything to do with the way Slayer was made?

Is Taim a new Forsaken?

Who sent the Shadowspawn attack to Lord Algarin's manor?

______________________________

I have a friend who is going to a signing tomorrow - if he gets answers to any of these, I'll edit the post to remove the questions.

RJ RAFO'd that one, but I suppose it won't hurt to ask again.

Question: Did Rand gain access to the True Power via his "strange link" with Moridin, or did he access it some other way?


I'm sure it's up there somewhere, but I'm lazy. I'm also pretty sure it'll get a RAFO, but I'd like to at least get that before I start a faction about it.

Actually, I remember a rather involved debate between myself and Marie about the CK, and why the female CK broke without the male one breaking. Now that they are both gone, maybe BS is willing to tell us why.

Marie claimed that there was a flaw in the female CK. I claimed there was more stress on the female CK because of the involvement of Rand, an inexperienced saidar weaver.

It's also interesting to note that while we all thought the CK were being used to their limit during the Cleansing, that was apparently not the case:
