Default What question you'd like answered by BS / Team Jordan?

What question would you like to be answered by Brandon or Team Jordan? You know the one that you've been wondering since day one or for a long, long time. I mean those questions where you just want to know right now. Damn the consequences.


I've got a 'couple'.

- Who is Nakomi? I'm going to be severely disappointed if she remains a mystery

- Where is Demandred? Screw the plot. I need to know.

- Shaidar Haran. Full exposure.

- Padan Fain. Also full exposure.

- making of ter'angreal and other angreals. The mechanics explained.

- I also would like to have a detailed analysis about the drilling of the Bore and what happened at the Sealing.

You're asking for the Playgirl Supplement to the Shayol Ghul Gazette? Well, to each his own, I guess.

Brandon seemed to hint that Nakomi would be left open to interpretation.

I'm going to be seriously pissed if he's in murandy. One I asked Jordan at a kod signing was who between Shaidar Haran and moridin rank higher. My answer was something along the lines of "they are not the same person"

why did they respond with, "they are not the same person" if the question was asked around who was ranked higher? But yeah, as for Nakomi, I'm sure it won't be outright said but maybe implied in the encyclopedia. I want to know the ranking of strongest to weakest among the Forsaken. We know Moridin is #1 but there has been confusion over if Aginor was second most or Demandred or Lanfear or what.

I'd like to know who the Forsaken posing as Sammael is, and why he has been doing so since Sammael died.

I have a feeling I'm wading into an old debate here, but doesn't it have to be a Forsaken because of the "mark"? I'll go and see what I can dredge up....

Indeed. The only real alternative is Fain (who notably has a connection to Mashadar, which corrupted Sammael's soul, and who notably also has both the power of illusion and the ability to control Shadowspawn, not to mention a pet Fade, totally broken to his will, that he kept around for future use). That idea got a good bit stronger with TOM.

Well, okay, with that in mind, this may violate my rule against posting new theories until the reread is over, but what if it was an actual zombie Sammael? Fain can create zombie trollocs that have been mashadar-ed, why not a Forsaken? I know RJ said he was "dead" and "toast" but if Fain is using some sort of zombie that rule's not necessarily violated.

It seems unlikely that there was anything left of Sammael's body; illusion is the more likely scenario.

What would have destroyed his body? He was killed by Mashadar - I thought it killed, not destroyed utterly.

This seems to be a question where zombie sammael is uniquely qualified to answer. Fwiw, my money is on Taim or Demandred. And before we go into the whole Taim is markless, many things believed impossible by even the forsaken are later found to be not.

If I was a roleplay sock-puppet account like Weiramon then perhaps. But sadly, it's just a username - one I picked without even having contemplated the theory, actually.

For any of the Forsaken (whether you include Taim or not), the chance of success is not worth the risk and the trouble. Taim likely hired Slayer, but he doesn't fit for the Shadowspawn attack, which seems to have been intended to be a blow against the Shadow (stealing resources) just as much as it was a blow against Rand.

Aran'gar's a better suspect for who set Slayer on Rand's trail. She implied in POV that she had a plan to kill Rand and Slayer's the only one as yet unaccounted for.

But Slayer knew his master was male. It could be that she was disguising her voice, but she could have had all sorts of plans for killing Rand, so why assume it?

I think both aran'gar and taim are valid theories. she could have had a proxy. or more likely, she disguised herself, easily done in tar, and she has been a man so pretty easy to know the specs of one. not to mention disguising herself as male might be extremely effective.
Fain-have doubts about him for slayer because i doubt he can really use tar. of course, if he has a zombie sammael, he becomes my number one suspect in both sets of orders
Demandred-i think he would want a more personal kill. sending isam to get him in his sleep doesn't seem to fit. certainly likely for the manor assault.
