|Thus Spake The Creator
Q: how do wise ones get gaishan? (they don't fight, right?)
Q: Are you ever going to expand the existing map and perhaps open up
the lands east of the Spine of the World?
Q: First off, I'd like to say thanks Mr. jordan for providing my family
and I countless hours of reading enjoyment, and I'd like to ask you something
about the Aiel, well, who are they?
Q: There's been some question about how the Aiel sustain their vast
numbers east and west of the Dragron wall. How can millions of Aiel live
on grubs in the Waste and why don't they scavenge the land clean in Illian,
Cairehen, and Caemlyn?
Q: How do you explain Liah being in Shadar Logoth for so long?
Q: Are the Aiel already a Remnant?
Reports from signings
He made the Aiel look Irish because he thought it was kind of funny. He doesn't like the fact that hardened desert warriors are always described as looking a certain way, so he used the opposite description.
On why Aviendha's toh required her to kill Rand, he said basically "Read and Find Out", but he noted that Aviendha is under the strain of several tohs. He also pointed out that her interpretation from Elayne's reaction from her confession to Elayne gives her a way out, but that Elayne does not share that interpretation. [ The show will certainly go on :-) ]
The invasion of iron-clad men into the Aiel Waste as reflected on in the ancestor-memory ter'angreal he said did not refer to Artur Hawkwing, but to a much earlier event.
The Aiel were based on bits of the apache, zulu, bedouin, and arab(?) cultures. Nothing starting here, but I don't think we've had this one answered as a complete list before. It was fired off really fast, so I may have missed some...
My first question: "Was the Aes Sedai who initiated the Pact of Rhuidean
from the Age of Legends?" (From TSR).
