  1. @Calderis @ExtesianI dont think the affects of savantism become completely homogeneous with the Soul. The Spiritual Realm is able to tell what is new and what is original (like with Soulstamps and hemalurgic spikes) in my opinion. Edit: This concept is even explored in the interlude
  2. Fair enough. It does seem to me, however, that the healing of Shardblade wounds is a matter of abscence, not excess like with Savantism. It makes sense to me that pouring more investiture in wouldn't solve the problem, but i could definitely be wrong.
  3. I dont know, we already know that a process similar to the one im describing exists in the Cosmere (as well as having shown similar affects to a Larkin).
  4. You say spirit web damage, but that damage is done by and consists of investiture. Its not that far of an intuitive leap. Especially when you consider that the larkin/lanceryn are pretty much the only thing foreshadowed from Aimia (besides sleepless cremlings) before this interlude.
  5. I'm sure a lot of you have read the Oathbringer interlude set right outside of Aimia (find it here if you havent) and i have a theory on one of the questions posed in it. What is on the island that can possibly cure Soulcaster savantism? My theory proposes that the Larkin/Lanceryn or their gemhearts (which are rumored to be on Aimian islands), used in fabrials, have the ability to rid the soul of the affects of savantism. This fits with what we already have seen them do (suck stormlight out of Lift). Expanding on this, I could see how these powers could greatly help Odium and his forces conquer Roshar. Not only could the Lanceryn be uused to easily combat Shardbearers and Surgebinders, but I could see how their powers could possibly be used in many other ways. As always, let me know what you guys think. edit: FIRST!11!!one!11
  6. We know that she had to have had something going on to attract Pattern before her mother attacked her, my theory is that her family had already been abusive and unhappy. It would be interesting if her wish that she would have never had to kill her mother so that her family could be happy was actually all predicated on that lie.
  7. It'd be cool for him to come around and for them to reach a mutual understanding.
  8. We know the main traits for Dustbringers are "Brave" and "Obedient", so i always thought it would make a cool character arc for one of Shallan's deserter body guards to become one (preferably Gaz).
  9. I could see it happening, but my hunch has always been that Dalinar will eventually die. Mistborn book 3 scarred me forever.
  10. Returned can only be created by the specific Decision of Endowment. Also, Szeth remembers his past unlike returned.
  11. Oh, I agree with you, I'm just saying you shouldn't frase theory as fact. Especially in the questions board.
  12. We have only seen one example of Jasnah soulcasting from her PoV. It is far to early to say anything about how she regularly soulcasts
  13. Szeth is almost definitely getting interludes.
  14. I believe that the Heralds are an integral part. Relevant WoB: QUESTION () How many parties were there to the original Oathpact? BRANDON SANDERSON The Heralds and Honor. They thought that by walking away from their oaths, that it would break the Oathpact. They're going to find out that it's not quite as broken as they had previously thought (meaning the Heralds).
  15. You legend.
