    right so at the start of tEotW LTT wakes up and realised hes killed everyone etc...
    who is the guy who is mocking him, untill then end of TDR i thought it was just the DO, but then things were slightly clarified.

    Is it Ishy? or even Demandred?

    ps - college lunchtimes can get really boring ;)

    It's Ishy, the only Forsaken (or to be correct, Chosen) not fully Bound.

    At the start of the series RJ wasn't sure if the series would take off so tEotW was written so it could be a stand alone book. When it sold he wrote the next two so it could stand as a trilogy. He had the ideas in his head, if not all the details, but wasn't sure if he'd be allowed to write all the books. When the first three skyrocketed he set to work on the full story. This is why Ishy is so representative of the DO in the first 3 and Moridin's much more behind the scenes in the rest. It's also why there are some inconsistencies between the 1st 3 and the rest (mainly in the mechanics of the world, particularly channelling).

    By the way, this should probably be in the "Come and ask a question" thread. ;)

    p.s. I always preferred lunchtime to the rest of the day in college.

    Oh and just an FYI

    a group of people are making a short film of the prologue of tEotW called Dragonmount, see the dragonmount site. Its a fully animated (CG, not cartoon) movie of lews therin telamons last hours. Sounds cool.

    when its done it will be free to download from the site.

    I'm hoping it will be good, but they have been working on it for an eternity now . . . .

    I know ! Ive been waiting for ever. They still haven't even released new images or anything. And yes, the Forsaken at the beginning is Ishamael (the coolest of them all) as he states his name as Elan Morin Tedronai, and Lews Therin calls him the "Betrayer Of Hope," which in the Old Tongue is "Ishamael."
