Default KoD major Asmodean clue

Hi Everyone. I haven't read a post in three years since KoD first came out, so even if you've seen this before, it's new to me.

KoD prologue, in the White Tower:

"Calculating with Radun's Standard of Deviation, the rate is eleven times what it should be," Astrelle said in tight tones. "Furthermore, this must indicate the intervention of the Shadow-"

Tesan cut her off, beaded braids clicking as she shook her head. "The Shadow, yes, but Radun's Standard, it is outdated. You must use Covanen's First Rule of Medians, and calculate separately for rotting meat and rotten. The correct answers, as I said, are thirteen and nine. I have not yet applied it to the flour or the beans and the lentils, but it seems intuitively obvious-"

Astrelle swelled up, and since she was a plump woman with a formidable bosom, she could swell impressively. "Covanen's First Rule?" she practically spluttered, breaking in. "That hasn't been properly proven yet. Correct and proven methods are always preferable to slipshod..."

Jordan is giving a clue to Asmodean's killer. The "intuitively obvious" is to draw our attention. The rotting meat is the number of original Forsaken: 13. The rotten meat is the number of Forsaken who were alive to kill Asmodean: 9. You can only get nine if Ishamael has already been ressurected as Moridin. Don't be a stodgy old Radun's Standard user, all the hip kids use Covanen's First Rule.

In summary: Moridin Killed Asmodean. For further details see my 22-page Moridin killed Asmodean Theory somwhere in the archives, I hope.

It's good to be back. (Can I get my Hero of the Horn rank back?)

Well hot damn, all the oldies from my Youngling days are coming back! All that is missing is Cal and A Dragonburned Fool...

Welcome back, even if it was a Asmo post that brought ya back

At any rate, everyone knows it is intuitively obvious to the casual observer that Asmo was killed by Bela for cheating on her with Stepper, and that the only reason the DO couldn't retrieve it was that he feared Bela's retribution...hell hath no fury like woman scorned and all that.

I mean sheesh, how could anyone believe anything different?

Ironically, GLotD is known for his wacky theories, but he is the anti-champion of your faction.

Chuckle, GLotD hasn't seen the revealed truths of Verin's wickedness fully enough!

Just one question. How would Asmo have known it was Moridin/Ishamael since he definetly knew his killer? All the other Forsaken were never told it was really Ishamael, they had to guess from picking up hints about it. I doubt Asmo, especially after going over to the light, or so the Forsaken think, would be told beforehand that Ishamael had been resurrected as Moridin.

Of all the Forsaken, Moridin is at the bottom of the list of suspects just because of that reason.

But Asmodean was the only stage performer of the lot. Merely donning a wig or a set of false teeth (or another body) isn't going to fool him. He has seen artists don much weirder things, and he still knew which one was supposed to play the bass and which was merely there to shift heavy crates around.

Yeah, I was thinking it had been about 4 years. He hasn't been around since I was noobish, maybe elderish. With the exception of once he showed up a couple of years ago, on Non or something. Maybe it was when RJ died. Don't recall.

It must be less that 4 years. I've seen him post before, so probably more like 3 years.

Huh...I dun remember joining that faction. Been long enough I have forgotten all the evidence for or against Verin...All the "evidence" not posted by Felix that is... And when will the main page/faction page be updated to match our correct ranks?

Default It gets crazier!

The answers are 13 and 9.

13 and 9!

13 = M = Moridin
9 = I = Ishamael

!!!

In response to Mort re: proof/recognition (what, you don't like Covanen's First Rule?), I believe this is not a clue of the "proof" type, but of the "RJ is blatantly telling you who it is because he wants to join in the Asmo fun!" An author's Easter egg, if you will.

I love this game!

I always thought it was RJ's way of making fun of us. Everyone thinks their Asmodean theory is the most logical one.

Not even ~I~ think the one I claim to follow is logical.
