    Another question, since balefiring the Dark One is impossible because his threads go so far back the resulting strain would destory the Wheel (aka universe), is it possible to balefire the Dragon ? I mean, the Dragon goes almost as far back as the Dark One, so his thread would certainly be a large one, his threads would be woven all over the Wheel as he interacts with others and changes history's course.

    My second question relates directly to the first. When Rahvin and Rand were trying to balefire each other, if Rahvin had struck, what would happen ?

    The question about the blue flash in the USA Today chat was asked by none other than myself :).

    And this time RJ answered it by saying that Thom's knives are special indeed.

    It's possible to balefire the dragon, and depending on how strong the amount of balefire used, the consequences would vary. IMO, only about a month of the Dragon's history or more likely even less is the maximum that can be altered by only one strong channeler unaided. So, although it may have very serious consequences in events, it wouldn't destroy the essence of the dragon or things that happened in AOL etc.

    Since they have obviously been battling since the begining of time I would agree that the effects of using Balefire on the Dragon would be devestating. If he died by another means he would still be born again in another age, but Balefire would remove him totally thus eliminating the possibility of his resurection. Maybe The effects would be more dramatic in the next age?

    Quick Question, rather simplistic:
    - The Amyrilin's title 'Watcher of the Seals", what are the seals? The seals on the dark one's prision, or something to do with Tar Valon/White Tower?

    I always thought it was the 7 seals on his prison.

    i got that impression too, which is ridiculous, since the female aes sedai did NOTHING to help the poor men who died at shayol ghul sealing the place up and don't know even now where the seals were hidden.

    Me too. OBTW, it is not uncommon in real history for kings and queens to have titles that do not necessarily have any real application anymore. So, I just assumed that the title of Watcher of the Seals was something like that. Perhaps that title existed before all the male aes sedai went mad. That could be the reason the seals were hidden away where the aes sedai no longer knew their location. Just a guess. :p ;)

    Hmm, i personally dont think it has anything to do with the Dark One's prison seals. Never even came to mind actually. I just thought it was yet another title for the Amyrlin.

    ok, here's one. Who was the man that helped Rand in Shadar Logoth (SP?) when he was fighting Sammael? I assumed that it was LTT in some fashion.

    I thought it was Moridin. Since the DO said to let the Lord of Chaos live, and him being Nae'bis(sp?) and all. But mine's just a guess, really.

    Morodin would be a good guess since Rand did not feel him channel the Balefire.

    Yeah, it was Moridin. He is the Wanderer, there was an FAQ somewhere about it, but the give-aways were that he was described as Rand's height (Moridin was described like this before), he didn't feel him channeling to open a gateway- which requires a large amount of saidin - and the result of the two balefire's colliding, which i believe is what happens when weaves of the One Power touch weaves of the True Power.

    It was Moridin. 100% sure. He used True Power for Traveling there and thus could not be detected. And there was an intersting effect when One Power balefire and True Power balfire collide.

    wich brings about another question, why would Morodin want to help Rand? I'm about 550 pages into Winters Heart, and I have seen reference to that fact in there as well. hmm.

    Ishamael prefers to turn Lews Therin to the dark rather than kill him, so he tries this most of the time. However, after Ishy died in tDR, all orders seemed to change to 'kill Rand,' but after being brought back as Nae'blis, he seems to be reverting back to manipulating him.

    Okay, another question :

    In tGH, Lan and Rand are practising the forms at Fal Dara, when suddenly a wall of air that seemed "solid" to Rand coalesced around him and stopped him from moving. When he tells Lan, all the Warder says is "Strange things can happen this close to the Blight."

    So my question is, what the hell is it ? Is it one of those "Bubbles Of Evil" ? Did someone channel ?
