    No spoilers.

    Oxford's setup did not encourage hanging around to listen to answers so we more or less hustled out of there and went to a bar for the social afterwards. No one drank $37 worth of beer.

    Mat will lose his eye and Rand a hand: yes. (Did not ask right out. Instead, "Did you deliberately make Rand like Tew/Chew, the god of war who loses his hand?" (yes) "And Mat is like Odin who loses his eye..." (yup...but the Arthur parallels are spread around many characters. Merlin is Thom Merrilin, the Amyrlin Seat, Lan, etc...)

    Question

    Was the Verin "Moiraine sent me"/"I did not send her" incident a mistake or plot device?

    Robert Jordan

    (read the book) "Oh. A plot device..." (you guys think you know everything, don'tcha?)

    Did not get a chance to ask:

    1. Why did Ishamael split in two at the end of The Dragon Reborn?
    2. Who was Kari al'Thor? And what did it mean to be Second Captain in Illian?
    3. Is Egwene the reincarnation of Eldrene of Manetheren? And is Eldrene's veil significant? Will you explore Egwene's understanding of the Old Tongue at all?
    4. Was Lews Therin Beidomon?
    5. What did your readers guess that you thought they'd never pick up on because you thought it was too subtle?
    6. Why do some characters go in and out of the woodwork? Like Rand in The Dragon Reborn...
    7. What made you choose to have a protagonist who will be going mad?

    Please do identify yourself as a 'net Darkfriend. He seems to like us, be aware of us, etc. And Judy: "All is forgiven".
