Thread: WOT timeframe?

  1. #1

    WOT timeframe?

    How long has passed for our characters since the beginning of Eye of the World?

    I believe it's been no more than a couple of years, but some seem to think that a decade has passed for Rand and company which seems highly unlikely to me.

    Also, what are the ages of the main characters? (Rand, Mat, Perrin, Egwene, Elayne, Nynaeve)

    Click on the different book links to see the timelines. About 3 years it seems.

    Never mind.

    I found a timeline and it's 2 years between Eye of the World and the most recent.

    At the beginning of Eye of the World Rand, Mat, and Perrin were 20 and Egwene was 17. No mention of Elayne or Nynaeve although I believe Elayne to be about a year younger than Egwene and Nynaeve is several years older than the rest.

    Thanks! I guess we both found one at the same time.
