Reviewing the Darkfriends' Progress

by Larry Homer

SERIES INTRODUCTION:

This is a sort of sequel to my classic humor series of days gone by, "Renovating the White Tower!" In that series, Amyrlin Egwene was seen in her study shortly after Tarmon Gai'don (i.e., after the series finally ends), interrogating a representative of each Ajah and demanding to know what that Ajah had actually ACCOMPLISHED lately. In some cases, the answer was 'pathetically little.' Unfortunately, I was unable to give the Black Ajah its fair share of attention because after TG it will have been wiped out, I hope. But I always meant to get around to summing up its contributions to the boneheaded rules of the White Tower one of these days, and finally decided to balance Egwene's interviews in my last series with Ishamael's interviews in this new series, wherein he will call in the Darkfriend Station Chief from each great nation and ask them to sum up how the Evil Work has been going in their neck of the woods! After all, it's only fair to give Light and Shadow equal chances to tell their side of the story, right? This series will explain the actual origin of MANY of the dumbest traditions of various WoT cultures. You didn't think all those colossal mistakes were made by ACCIDENT, did you? :)
