• There will be some downtime on December 7th, hopefully for only 30-45 minutes for a hardware upgrade. We do not have an exact time for this, so if you see the site go down - please do not panic! (But do let Qamra know!)

Well it wouldn't be an actual treekiller as he's from Illian (nine bees on chestplate). But everyone else did come to support them, so that doesn't rule out your theory.

Ah. Well, you know. It's still fun to call characters treekillers when I get the chance. :laugh:

I think it's the 1st commander of the companions, and Tam is on the ground as a witness. Shaiel kills him, but gets wounded, and Tam reagins consciousness later and finds her atop dragonmount...

Aaaaaaah, so excited! Except for the bit where the trailer playback kept getting choppy. I'll clearly have to watch it again to make up for that, yes, definitely. :-D

The thing with the rings on the belt -- guh, that's awful. And very effectively so, in terms of finding a visual way to quickly get across the Whitecloaks being terrible zealots.

Glad to hear that the oath was just shortened for trailer purposes. I assumed that was probably the case, because otherwise it was going to confuse the heck out of people when Moiraine starts blasting Trollocs (and if you go the route of "but they can choose to break the Three Oaths," the entire thing falls apart).

The hardest thing about this is going to be that my sister is out of town right when the show starts airing. She's told me I'm allowed to watch it without her, but I call b.s. She and I once drove around to the houses of our male WOT-reading friends and stuck Darkfriend application forms into their mailboxes, and then when one of them asked her "did you put this in my mailbox?" she denied it, with perfect Aes Sedai truthfulness . . . because she was driving the car, and I was the one who delivered it. How can I watch this show on my own? I'm going to have to find the willpower to wait.

@Maianel Istor I don't think I could do it :laugh:

My husband and I are planning on watching it together. It's now showing on the header of our Amazon TV so I see it every time I turn it on. We're talking about it so much that my kids keep saying, "There's the Wheels of Time" (their words).

Pretty sure I teared up at "The Wheel Weaves as the Wheel Wills".

And here's the transcription of the actual trailer since the closed captioning sucks. This isn't true/full captioning with descriptions, but it does have the spoken dialogue.

Trailer Captions said:
[Siuan?] Swear your oath, Moiraine Sedai.
[Moiraine] I swear to speak no word that is not true, to make no weapon with which one person
may kill another, and never to use the One Power as a weapon.
[Stepin] Do you know what Aes Sedai means in the Old Tongue? Servants of All. It is they who serve the world.
[Moiraine] I didn't choose this path, but I will follow it.
[Lan] Where next?
[Moiraine] The Two Rivers. The Old Blood runs deep in those mountains. Let's hope it's prepared them for what's coming.
[Moiraine] The Dark One is waking. But there will be one who can stand against him, and it's one of the five of you.
[Mat] You’ve fully lost your mind.
[Moiraine] Your life isn't going to be what you thought.
[Lan] Moiraine…
[Egwene] What are those?
[Moiraine] His army is coming.
[Perrin] What can we do?
[Egwene] We protect the people we love, no matter the cost.
[Moiraine] Our enemies are everywhere. They will leave no one standing.
[Rand] We've lost too many people already. I can’t lose you.
[Egwene] You won't.
[Moiraine] If we do not stop the Dark One now, the whole world will burn. I can't allow it.
[Moiraine] The Wheel weaves as the Wheel wills.
[Perrin] Do you think we'll ever go back home?
[Egwene] No.

They look really similar to me and so I did kind of debate which one that was. I decided that the hair didn't have the right color for it to be Thom.

Oh I thought it was Thom too, I figured it was Thom giving Rand and Mat a crash course in What's Aes Sedai All About. That was the bit of trailer that provoked me into telling Moiraine to go get it girl. :laugh:
