    Interview: Apr 17th, 2011

    Terez (Wetlandernw)

    What did Cadsuane use to blackmail Flinn, Narishma, and Manfor?

    Brandon Sanderson

    RAFO. ... That oneís mostly a MAFO. Iíll be honest. Thatís a question I should have looked at.


    Yeah, I figured it was; I was hoping actually to catch Maria on that one. That was from Wetlander from

    Brandon Sanderson

    Oh, was it? Hi Wetlander! Thatís one I should know. Iím pretty sure itís in there somewhere. Thatís one I should have looked up, but Iíve just never looked it up. So...

    Maria Simons

    A quote from the notes: "For the men, it would have been at least partly a matter of blackmail. They are distrusting of Rand, and also of Taim to various degrees; none thinks it's safe to go back to the Black Tower; they are known in Cairhien as men who can channel, and also elsewhere, making them marked to an extent, at least on their own."

    So it wasn't anything really hidden, it was just "let us bond you and we'll help you; otherwise youíre all on your own." And it was Hopwil, not Manfor, who was in the first group bonded.


    I took the three names from Taim's list of "deserters" given to Rand by Logain in Crossroads of Twilight, Chapter 24; Cadsuane wasn't too specific: "Blackmail was a tool she disliked using, but she had already used it on the three Asha'man..." That was in Winter's Heart Chapter 13; she told Rand about the three bonded Asha'man in Chapter 25, and indeed Karldin Manfor was not among those three.

    Will we ever learn what went wrong when Narishma went to fetch Callandor?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Um...perhaps. (Terez laughs.) Was that one of yours?


    Yes, that was.

    Brandon Sanderson

    I didnít answer it, but I didnít RAFO it.


    Yeah. Itís all good.

    Interview: Nov 11th, 2011


    Did you ever find out what were the means & end of Cadsuane's blackmailing the Asha'man?

    Brandon Sanderson

    It's all in the notes, but I'd have to look it up before I could answer.
