Note this FAQ section is a continuous work in progress, feel free to post in the comments section with questions you believe should be added, and contribute answers to those which have yet to be completed.


Note about spoilers:


In the below FAQ's, two spoiler policies are followed.


FAQ's for a particular book will openly discuss the plot up to and including that book, and any later material needed to answer a question will be placed behind spoiler warnings of one kind or another. For example, if you have only read up to Memories of Ice and you wish to see the FAQ's for that book, you can do so without exposure to spoilers from House of Chains onwards.


The same care is not taken in the General FAQ's, which draw information freely from across the series. If you are not yet up to date with all books currently released, then you read this section at your own risk
