First published in 1990, Robert Jordan began an epic series called The Wheel of Time. For the next seventeen years, readers experienced eleven books of rich and expansive storytelling. However, on September 16th, 2007, Robert Jordan passed away due to cardiac amyloidosis. His legacy is carried on by Brandon Sanderson, a fellow fantasy author and Wheel of Time fan. With the help of Harriet Rigney, Robert Jordan's wife and editor, Mr. Sanderson continues a journey over twenty years in the making.
All manner of characters populate the vast world of the series. With thirteen books and a prequel so far, The Wheel of Time series contains thousands of characters, from Aes Sedai, Warders, and nobility, to humble farmers and maids, from powerful warriors to those sworn to peace in all they do.
Tel'aran'rhiod is where all the possibilities of the Wheel of Time connect. A world which any can enter but few can enter at will, and where thoughts make reality. Tel'aran'rhiod, the Unseen World or the World of Dreams, exists between the possibilities that existed for each choice made, making it touch the whole of the Pattern. Since training ter'angreal for the World of Dreams exist, it is likely that they were used or studied in some way in the Age of Legends. The White Tower had a dreamer named Corianin Nedeal who died years ago; Egwene al'Vere is the only other known Dreamer in Tower history. Aiel Wise Ones also make use of Tel'aran'rhiod frequently, and the gift of Dreaming, or Dreamwalking, seems to be very common among them. Anyone can enter the World of Dreams, and those who brush up against it in their sleep often do not know what they are doing. Many people awake with pains and bruises that they cannot explain, caused by taking small injuries in Tel'aran'rhiod. Dreamwalkers can enter the world at will, as well as those who hold certain ter'angreal. Some ter'angreal do not even require channeling to activate them, and thus Tel'aran'rhiod can also be accessed by those who do not channel. Another way to access the World of Dreams is to create a gateway into it. Aiel Wise Ones, however, have warned against this several times, stating that anyone who does this loses a piece of their humanity. One final way to enter Tel'aran'rhiod is only accessible to Wolfbrothers; these individuals can enter through what is known as the Wolf Dream. (more...)
