    Interview: Jan 15th, 2003

    Bradley Staples

    Can you explain a bit about the properties of the World of Dreams? Such as when Nynaeve forced Moghedien to drink forkroot tea, which caused the Forsaken to fall asleep. But within that same book, the Wise Ones tell Egwene that drinking tea will in Tel'aran'rhiod will cause no effects upon the body.

    Robert Jordan

    It's a strong matter of belief. If you believe something like that will happen to you, then it can and does.

    Bradley Staples

    [I wonder why Moghedien believed that though, if she one of the best of the (Forsaken) in Tel'aran'rhiod]


    Also, what about wounds and pain? Causing pains/wounds though an intermediate source—such as stabbing one with a dagger made in Tel'aran'rhiod—causes lasting pain. Yet if one were to simply cause the other to feel that pain directly, it fades upon reaching the waking world.

    Robert Jordan

    No it doesn't. If you feel pain in the World of Dreams, in Tel'aran'rhiod, then you have that pain in the waking world. Tel'aran'rhiod IS real in that respect.

    Bradley Staples

    [More along the same, I forget wording. But I wonder why pain would stay, if Egwene's healing didn't? Belief again?]

    Wotmania Interview (Verbatim)


    Does forkroot work with male channelers, too?

    Robert Jordan



    Tylee notes in Knife of Dreams Chapter 4 that men also have been caught with forkroot, so it does work on men who can channel.
