totally. At the Sacramento signing they were handing out copies of Jason's ToM trailer to people who could name a Forsaken. And people struggled with that!

thus the question was if people could give the full original name of a Forsaken, or just name a Forsaken?

Hey guys. I was one of the Tower Guard at the NY signing. Sorry if the trivia questions were a little on the difficult side. My thinking when I came up with mine was probably geared more toward hardcore fans than casual ones... never occured to me that a casual reader might come to the signing.

Don't sweat it, if you can stump an HCFF then it is the right difficulty level

No, it was great to have some actual challenges! Did you pick the Birgitte quote? That was a good one - and of course a lot of people went for Mat instead.

I don't know. I think naming Forsaken by their original names is still pretty easy. BA too. Sadly no signings near my town. Trivia at JC mayhaps? *weg*

Towers of Midnight book tour 8 November 2010 Lincoln Triangle Barnes and Noble NY, NY - WinespringBrother reporting

Q: (a takeoff on Leigh's review) I've seen this somewhere before : gollumgollumgollum
A: Fain will not end up like Gollum. Though Harriet said he is even crazier than how he was shown in prologue.



Towers of Midnight book tour 8 November 2010 Lincoln Triangle Barnes and Noble NY, NY - Sarayne reporting


Q: Is Padan Fain going to turn out like Gollum?
Brandon: No, he is not going to be like that. I am aware of the comparisons, and I am trying to distance him from that. The scene in Towers of Midnight with Padan Fain was originally written differently, and when I submitted it to Harriet she said, “Oh no he’s much crazier than that!” So I changed it accordingly.

Obviously, these are two different reports of the same question. But totally different meanings!

I was going off memory. But I thought the first point was more relevant anyway. I know that at some point in the process Harriet commented on how crazy Fain appeared, just forgot if Brandon made changes before he submitted the prologue based on those comments.

Okay, I will just assume the other version of the question is more accurate and remove yours. (no offense.) (And I just removed the Harriet bit - not the rest.)

I think what Brandon meant by the difference from Gollum was a hint that the theories about him ending up as crucial to the sealing, Gollum-style, are off.

The comment about editorial input from Harriet seemed to imply that, in an effort to make it clear that Fain wasn't Gollum in a narrative sense, Brandon had ended up making Fain too 'sane' as a character.

The Second one is the more accurate report. Brandon said he was aware that making Fain too nuts would invite Gollum comparisons and his first draft reflected that awareness. However, Harriet's note on that was that Fain was "much crazier", so he re-wrote it.

As promised, here is the link to my blog about my custom made Wheel of Time action figures, for anyone who's interested.

http://joeyesq.blogspot.com/2010/11/...es-part-1.html

Part 1 covers the story behind why I decided I needed to have WoT toys in the first place as well as the creation of the Rand figure, with pics, naturally. Enjoy!
