Moiraine vs. Jardir in the 2012 Suvudu Cage MatchLast week, I wrote a cage match between Moiraine and The Dagda Mor for the 2012 Suvudu Cage Matches. Moiraine stomped Terry Brooks’ demon lord into the ground and moved onto the next round to face Jardir from Peter V. Brett’s The Desert Spear. When the editors at Del Rey/Suvudu approached me about the opportunity to co-author the Moiraine vs. Jardir cage match with Peter V. Brett, I couldn’t refuse. Together, Peat and I cam up with a pretty wicked fight between the two powerhouse characters. If you’re into these cage matches, check out the Moiraine vs. Jardir match and defend me and Peat from the Wheel of Time fans ripping us a new one in the comments section!

    Sorry Aidan but have to agree with the fanatic WoT fans. Three Oaths would’ve allowed for her to whatever she needed…….

    Nonsense. The third oath says “Never to use the One Power as a weapon except against Darkfriends or Shadowspawn, or in the last extreme defense of her life, the life of her Warder or another Aes Sedai”.

    The fans seem to interpret “last extreme defense” as “any time she feels threatened”, which is, I think, excessive, as it pretty much negates the oath. In the write up, at least, she attacked first, and once she realized her attack was in error, it was fair for her powers to try and seize up when she tried to murder someone for personal gain.

    Thanks for doing the write-up, Aidan! It was great!

  • Aidan Moher March 20, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    Yes, silly me for writing the cage match without having read the Wheel of Time novels or consulting someone with expert knowledge of The Painted Man, The Desert Spear and The Daylight War. Whatever was I thinking?

    PS. Thanks, Peat! I had a blast working with you.

    I disagree. However doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy the write up. Was great and the first Cage Match I’ve read. Needless to say am now a convert and looking forward to more!!

    Cheers :)
