simple ones:
Stave will redeem his people.
Jerry's boxes will save the elohim, not doom them.

An old one I made [that I'm sticking with, though I'm less sure now]:
LF will [and now, I include SHE in this] will be restored to proper place: not as a good guy, exactly, but like death/destruction a natural necessity for existence...and proper in location, OUTSIDE the arch [or whatever takes the arches place], not trapped within...so like Creator, unable to directly touch the world.

The ur-viles will exceed anything they've done so far: their understanding/lore of possibilities [direct opposite of other peoples, especially elohims "mystic visions"] and structure will make the new "Law" possible. [a logical, but greater, extension of Vain/staff of Law.]

Longwrath will be directly responsible for saving Linden, probably sacrificing himself in the process.

Really unlikely, but I love them, so I insist: The Sandgorgons will change sides, TC will be responsible for this.

Not likely, but it'll amuse me if it's even remotely true: The Elohim were trapped in the place where Jeremiah's thoughts had been buried, and he will release them with another construct later, when the Worm is no longer a threat to them.

TC will be the main POV character again (please?).

Roger will die an anticlimactic death (like tripping over a pebble and falling over Landsdrop or something like that).

The Ranyhyn on the penultimate page of AATE got to dry land in time.

The Lurker will save Linden's life, and she will be embarrased.

The Mayans were a year off, and the world will end in 2013 on the day before TLD's release, and only the people with ARCs will know if any of these predictions come to pass. Twisted Evil

If, in the days leading up to release, I start seeing crazy comets, bloody moons, or sunless days, I'm tracking you down and making sure I have at least one more day to live than you do. Evil or Very Mad

I'm also buying an ARC next time. Cool

Auleliel - your evil, Despiteful prediction makes me suspect that you are a Raver. Should this prediction be true, I predict that you will be rent. Razz

Otoh, I really hope that Roger *does* trip on a pebble and fall off Landsdrop to a miserable ignominious death. I have no emotional connection to this character. Die, tool, die.

Predictions? Hm. My expectations for Liand and Anele both were false. Let's see:

Mahrtiir will get his vision back.
Pahni will teach the Masters how to redeem grief.
I too predict Jeremiah is saving the Elohim, although really, Infelice can jump off Landsdrop for all of me.
Some of the Swordmainnir wil die, and I won't know which ones they were two minutes later.
The redemption of the Sarangrave and the Lurker. (what?!?)
Beauty and Truth shall not pass utterly from the Earth.

I will not buy an ARC, so if this "prediction" comes true, I will never know about the rest of it either.

As much as I'd rejoice about that, I highly suspect that she will not die any more than she already has (i.e. from that bullet).

The two rings and the staff will make a forbidding between the Worm and the Earthblood. The world will survive.

The worm will eat Mrs Voldermart and get a tummy ache and go back to sleep. It will also eat Kastenessen.

The giant with the magic sword will kill Nom the Sandgorgon.

Jeremiah will remove Lord Foul from the Earth. Covenant will replace him in the natural order.

The Elohim won't be seen again. Linden will replace them in some fashion, possibly with the ur-viles or the Insequent.

[Mod note: topic merged]

Is it too soon for this? Or is there another thread where this is discussed? If not, i'd just like to put it out there and say that Jeremiah will stop the worm at the beginning of the next book (with a construct as described by the Harrow earlier in Andelain). The rest of the story will be the confronting of all the Land's enemies one or two at a time...ultimately resulting in (obviously) Lord Foul's demise. Just for the record, my predictions, historically, haven't been any good.

I think at the end of the next book Richard Dawkins will show up and politely explain to the Creator and Lord Foul why they don't exist.

The Worm will try a few skurj for a midday snack, which will destroy him. The resulting conflagration will be like the na-Mhoram's biggest Banefire ever. Into which Linden will go to "cleanse" herself ala TC in WGW. But it won't work, she'll be incinerated. Razz

Roger's a breath of fresh air as far as the villains. He has fun being evil. All the rest of them are retreads. It leads up to a Star Wars moment with TC telling Roger in a Darth Vader voice "Roger I'm your father." Wink

All that's left in the Land to fight the skurj, Sandgorgons, Roger and Kastenessen are the Masters.

Though good fighters they can't do much by themselves.

But the end of the world is coming, things/beings are reinventing themselves (the Lurker for instance) and they are about to find out that they've been indirectly serving Foul for the past 3 thousand years.
They are going to be pissed.

What if they decide to use weapons?
And by "weapons" I mean the perfect recollection of all the uses of Kevin's lore that they have in their collective memory.
And each one mounted on a Ranyhyn?
They could wrap those Sandgorgons and Skurj up in a forbidding that would never break.

Preliminarily, I think that Jeremiah's talent for building constructs will somehow be used in conjunction with white gold to build a construct that will act as a bastion to stand against destruction--maybe the forbidding that kept being mentioned.

It will be like the Staff of Law, only immensely more powerful, and stationary--it won't be something to carry around and wield, but rather something like Revelstone, only imbued and pulsing with Earthpower and Law.

Perhaps the Giants will help him use the rubble of Kevin's Watch for this...

And, we will discover that Jeremiah was somehow visited by the Creator.

I think Holt and Angus will find out they have a lot in common, they will team up and kick some. Terisa and Geralden will have a child who gets lost in a mirror, they'll have to go find him. Liand will read these new books and he will be so surprised that his head explodes.

My favourite thread so far! First thing to make me smile since I started AATE...

Predictions:

Finally, Foul may make a re-appearance. I miss his merciless taunting. Really, none of the other 'baddies' cone close. I miss him.

Yep, the Elohim are trapped for their own protection and will be released. Unfortunately.

At some stage I'll care if one of the Giants dies - but only so I stand a better chance of remembering the names of the ones left alive. Giantish overload is somewhat reducing the size of their impact. 'Diminishing returns' in action.

Roger will turn out to be the son of the Old Man in the Ochre Robe who has yet to make an appearance. That's where the Star Wars moment will come from.

The Creator and Foul will be seen in the same place at the same time - proving once and for all that they are NOT the same person.

Covenant will wake up in front of the Police car - the last words of the Chronicles? 'It was all just a dream.'

And at some point I'll sit back and think that reading 3200 pages of the LC was worth it.
