  1. It's mentioned in The Emperor's Soul. Awhile back we got confirmation that it's just what they call aluminum on Sel/in the Rose Empire, unless Brandon is trolling hardcore with his phrasing.
  2. Oof, sorry @Oversleep (see, I did it this time ). @'ing people still isn't really second-nature to me. You still definitely deserve the kudos for finally prying this one out of Brandon.
  3. Behold the power of literary analysis! Thanks for the confirmation, it's nice to get that one nailed down.
  4. Well that saves me some time. Regarding WoPs/WoIs: Yeah sometimes they can be wrong (I think Peter and Brandon publicly jousted over whether Hoid was in SSFH for a year or two there), but usually they're right and they're always better than nothing. Just marking that it wasn't Brandon himself who said X or Y is usually enough in my books. There's also topic where not-Brandon is really the best authority. Like Isaac for symbols or Peter for anything involving math. Having it all available is for the best, rather than making judgement calls one way or the other and possibly excluding relevant info. EDIT: *sees edit* Hm, interesting. I've never seen that link from @Botanica before. I'll maintain that it's better to have the info than not. Even with a "possible blatant speculation" asterisk it's still better to go off than nothing. EDIT 2: Actually wait I believe I recall something like this being mentioned before. These look like Botanica's translation notes and have some info that it looks like Peter might not have expected to become public.
  5. Here's some more (just word-searching some key terms from WoBs I have bookmarked and not finding any matches): https://www.reddit.com/r/Mistborn/comments/3tfao1/so_how_do_the_exact_mechanics_of_feruchemy_in/cx6kgg0/?context=3 https://www.reddit.com/r/Stormlight_Archive/comments/3suo4l/oathbringer_i_think_flashback_dalinar_is_based/cx1nfdk/?context=3 https://www.reddit.com/r/Mistborn/comments/3y83cl/mistborn_trilogy_spoilers_question_about_the_lord/cyj8cj6/?context=3 https://www.reddit.com/r/Cosmere/comments/5b66wg/no_spoilers_kwaan_might_have_understood_realmatic/d9njbqq/?context=3 https://www.reddit.com/r/Stormlight_Archive/comments/5dpic4/oathbringer_spoilers_stormlight_three_update_5/da6ifpc/?context=3 https://www.reddit.com/r/Fantasy/comments/3va8fw/day_4_group_ama_in_support_of_worldbuilders/cxmy70t/?context=3 https://www.reddit.com/r/Cosmere/comments/5li5yl/all_monthly_wob_roundup_december_2016/dc2fjd3/?context=3 https://www.reddit.com/r/Fantasy/comments/3npd4h/im_ben_mcsweeney_illustrator_for_the_stormlight/cvq32i2/ https://www.reddit.com/r/Mistborn/comments/3n2qv7/could_a_shardblade_cut_through_a_steel_or_iron/cvkwbvv/ https://www.reddit.com/r/whowouldwin/comments/3l1i3m/randland_vs_scadrial_wheel_of_time_vs_mistborn/cv363iz/?context=3 https://www.reddit.com/r/books/comments/2ytg2h/im_novelist_brandon_sanderson_ama/cuu7w0c/?context=3 https://www.reddit.com/r/Fantasy/comments/3eb3ml/jared_of_pornokitsch_has_a_few_issues_with/ctdomw0/?context=3 https://www.reddit.com/r/Fantasy/comments/3d0rqj/brandon_sanderson_the_accidental_trilogy_a/ct1ypqs/?context=3 https://www.reddit.com/r/books/comments/2ytg2h/im_novelist_brandon_sanderson_ama/cs8qy4c/?context=3 https://www.reddit.com/r/whowouldwin/comments/37yn6r/a_full_shardbearerstormlight_vs_a_space_marine40k/crstw70/?context=3 https://www.reddit.com/r/Mistborn/comments/1exfc6/melting_down_metalminds/ https://www.reddit.com/r/brandonsanderson/comments/2ppyvg/two_mistborn_books_next_year_shadow_of_self_and/cn3j7sk/?context=3 https://www.reddit.com/r/Mistborn/comments/2sjqz5/is_hoid_in_shadows_for_silence_in_the_forests_of/cnqlfll/?context=3 https://www.reddit.com/r/Stormlight_Archive/comments/2ctcdj/spoilerscosmerewas_at_the_liverpool_signing/ https://www.reddit.com/r/Fantasy/comments/1ced7z/iamstilla_novelist_named_brandon_sanderson_ama/c9ftdsn/?context=3 https://www.reddit.com/r/Stormlight_Archive/comments/1a3fj0/discussion_of_the_week_shadesmar_truthspren/ -Multiple answers here https://www.reddit.com/r/Fantasy_Bookclub/comments/oji9u/the_alloy_of_law_qa_with_brandon_sanderson/c3huhis/ https://www.reddit.com/r/Fantasy/comments/1ced7z/iamstilla_novelist_named_brandon_sanderson_ama/c9fwqrl/?context=3 I have what has to be a hundred from his first AMA, didn't check those. ---- To reiterate, this all from essentially going into my bookmarks and opening a tab for everything from Reddit, then word-searching through your spreadsheet for key phrases. I may have missed/duplicated something, and there may be one or two less relevant links in there. There's also some WoPs and WoIs.
  6. Technically I think I'm the source of that assumption—including our suggestive RAFO on the matter. Regarding the Reddit thread here's the transcript.
  7. Do you happen to recall more precisely? Did he say "the nurse" or "one of the nurses" or "one of the handmaidens" or something else?
  8. It's here, though it's not 100% clear whether we're talking about "the nurse" or one of Siri's handmaidens.
  9. Resurrecting this quote because I'm unsure if it was ever resolved (the OP's chart still has a distinct letter for 'h') and Brandon's recent Reddit comment brought it to mind again.
  10. I'd get in touch with Brandon or Peter first, just to be sure.
  11. It looks like @Pagerunner found the WoB in question, but as a fun fact here's some more WoBs on Hemalurgic shenanigans that I re-found while searching myself. http://www.17thshard.com/forum/topic/47091-the-circle-of-infinite-power-has-been-closed/
  12. Speaking of Dreamer: Last I knew that was only available as part of an anthology; is there a separate ebook release I didn't hear about or is this the only place to get it as a standalone?
  13. I know you're right here because we have a relatively recent WoB on it, but I can't recall from where... :|
  14. Ha! I found my sig first! Cadmium hermit can time-capsule self:
