Default New ideas on in-book Third references

All of these come from the BWB (and recently tweeted)

"The third day of Tammaz. Brightly colored ribbons are worn by both men and women. (Tear, Illian, Amadicia, Tarabon, southern parts of Altara and Murandy)"

Amadicia - thief is branded for first offense, right hand is cut off for second, hanged as punishment for third

The third day of Jumara...day of wild indulgence in food...get...people to eat as much as they can hold and more

The Three-Fold Land...first a shaping stone...second, a testing ground...third, a punishment for their sin

South of our land across the Sea of Storms is the third continent...Sea Folk...call it the Land of the Madmen

Late on the third day, the Aiel finally carried out their purpose of killing Laman of Cairhien.

...called 'the Grand Coalition' or the 'Grand Alliance' although a few have called it 'the Third Compact'

The third solution was to hide somewhere beyond the reach of the OP...The only places...were Ogier Stedding

Demandred "third year of the war, he turned to the Dark Lord to avenge his overwhelming hatred of the Dragon"

----

There are bunches of codes that can be created from those references.

Third: he capitalizes the word Third. (Yeah, not sure, just thought I'd note it.)
I am not quite sure if you are implying this but maybe it is a clue on the theoryland page?

What could be a "third" on theoryland?
"freaks"
"fan"
"predictions"

Coming at it from a different angle, a lot of Theorylanders are working on the open clue that we missed by one word.

If that is the case, on the current list the third attempted clue is "a bargain struck" That is from the alphabetized list though, and I'm having trouble tracking down in the original list with the original order...

I doubt this is what BWS was going for, but I'm just brainstorming...

Tam, I also picked up on the wording, but other than searching through past posts I haven't had any bright ideas yet.

Could it mean the third book? as in something in 'the dragon reborn' perhaps something that happened first in that book that might be relevant in ToM?

yay for clasping at straws

I think he is referring to the Third Age; hence the capitals.

Well there is also the Fact that to us Callandor, it Requires 3 people. Hence a Third. It was what popped into my mind first when thinking of a Third at least. The Three Are One.

Also the True Power in some respects can be viewed as a Third Power, Saidin, Saidar and The True Power.

Okay, Brandon gave us another hint:

"Okay, another hint about the code I hinted at last night. This hint is connected to last night's post. Chapter 53"

Okay, another hint about the code I hinted at last night. This hint is connected to last night's. "Chapter 53"

There are 5 books in tWoT with over 53 chapters

tEotW - Chapter 53 'The Wheel Turns'
tDR - Chapter 53 'A Flow of the Spirit'
tSR - Chapter 53 'The Price of a Departure'
tFoH - Chapter 53 'Fading Words'
LoC - Chapter 53 'The Feast of Lights'

My guess that it might be something in the third book might be right but just in case i wrote all the chapters down since it might be something alot more cryptic.

So it might be either tDR since it's the THIRD book or it might be tSR since it's the Third book to have 53 chapters or greater... It might content based to something that is intrinsic to the particular chapter it's referring to.

Could someone post a thumbnail summary about the chapter 53 of tDR and tSR ?

It probably isn't a derivative of the original chapter title, but rather something that is resolved in this book that originates in that chapter.

If that makes sense. I just had lunch and lethargy has set in.

Chapter 53 from TDR is about when Faile gets Caught in The World of Dreams by the Ter Angreal and Perrin goes to Rescue.

chapter 53 in tSR - perrin is penned in in the two rivers some chap comes along and tells him there coming. he has a dream sees some stuff wounds slayer and he gets married quite alot happens in that chapter might want to have a flick.

Ok im going on the premise that its chapter 53 of the dragon reborn.

In that book the black Ajah stole a bunch of ter'angreal, 9 out of the 10 sisters have been caught by the end of KoD perhaps the last one has one of these Ter'angreal?

anyone know if a 'chapter 53' was discussed at the Chicago signing ? Almost all the previous books chapter 53's have something that could tie in easily with ToM.

TEOTW 53 - Rand says he would 'cut off his own hand' before using the one power again

TDR 53 - Perrin enters TAR 'too strongly' to save Faile

TSR 53 - Perrin in the wolf dream again has three visions and then wounds Slayer. The visions are :

Egwene stood among a crowd of women, fear in her eyes; slowly the women knelt around her. Nynaeve was one of them, and he believed he saw Elayne's red-gold hair. (likey her being raised to Amyrlin)

Mat stood naked and bound, snarling; an odd spear with a black shaft had been thrust across his back behind his elbows, and a silver medallion, a foxhead, hung on his chest.

Perrin thought it was Rand. He wore rags and a rough cloak, and a bandage covered his eyes. (Rand's visit to Ebou Dar.

TFOH 53 - Moiraine and Lanfear go through the twisted doorway and Rand reads her letter. (Which somewhat references the threearches in Rhuidean.

LoC 53 - Lots of PoVs here. Perrin getting ready to leave to find Rand. Rand in the box and Galina and Sevanna.

Or it has something to do with Perrin and the world of dreams? Both in tDR and in tSR he is there...

And wasn't the intro for ToM saying that Perrin has to master the world of dreams

TSR 53 really seems like it may apply here somehow. Perrin has three visions, two of those we know to have come true already and if i'm not mistaken many have speculated that the one of Mat being bound was connected with the Aelfinn and Eelfinn. any thoughts ?

So you think that it has to do with the third vision of the third book to have chapter 53? That seems nicely conspiratorial and obscure...

Definitely merits more investigation...
