Chapter 10: Leavetaking
The sexism in the series is really quite... Structural? It's pretty clear that Jordan *means* well. It's just that he has a very essentialist (and a bit weird) view on gender. The end result is a bit of a mess. Also, he has a thing for spanking, and tends to include it a lot.
Also, the cast is going to expand, and expand, and expand, and expand. This little adventuring party is going to stay the core of the story, but each of them is going to assemble a supporting cast larger than the original party... And that's not even talking about the villains and antagonists yet...
Yeah, like I said in the introduction, part of my reason for writing this is to make it easier to keep things straight, with writing this stuff down myself doing more to keep it in my head than just reading it. I've gotten lost several times with A Song Of Ice And Fire and had to do some wary browsing through its wiki trying to avoid spoilers, and I don't want that experience again.
The Draghkar is mentioned already? Huh. I'd forgotten that bit. As for the map, I'm going to assume you have the same version of the book I do (even though it's very possible you don't), so follow these directions: To start, I'll assume you know where the Two Rivers are. Follow the road from there to the east, passing Whitebridge, Four Kings & Caemlyn until you hit Aringill. From Aringill, follow the river/border north, and you'll hit Tar Valon, right next to Dragonmount.
Ah, I see it now. Yeah, just lazy then. I'm using the Ipad version, by the way.
I see. Well, there are three different maps, so I wasn't (and still aren't) sure which version you'd have. (in the newer (color) version, the directions are the same, but the River Erinin stretches a bit further east & west than in the other versions. In the oldest version (the one I've got), it barely goes east at all.)
