Theory Help

Over time we've put a heavier emphasis on encouraging well crafted theories, as many generic thoughts have been posed countless times over the last decade. With that in mind, here are a few suggestions if you'd like to see your theory posted.

Be Original - Or Find a Twist

Admittedly, it's tough to come up with an original theory. We've seen so many duplicated Asmodean theories on why it's Moridin because "death" took him. So, spend some time and come up with some twist that makes your theory unique. Jordan has hidden many ideas through out the text, so find one and hone develop your arguments around your twist. But don't get us wrong - we love new ideas. Shock us, we dare you.

Has Your Theory Already Been Written?

Do yourself a favor and look around through the variety of categories, forums and other Wheel of Time sites. It's okay if someone else wrote your theory - you just have to do it better. Better obvservations and conclusions. Better citations. Make something old, shiny again.

Read the Wheel of Time Interview Database

It's an invaluable resource. Most readers don't realize that so many mysterious have been resolved during tours, interviews, chats, etc. However, the database provides great grounds for the creation or support of your own theory. So do yourself a favor and read it through before submitting your theory.
