  1. Am I the only one who's first thought when reading about the general was, this guy must be related to Lopen.
  2. After months of changed release dates it's out.
  3. well that puts a big old hole in my theory still it isn't impossible that once they complete their metamorphosis into adults they enter the ocean and continue to grow, kind of like how frogs will continue growing after they transform from tadpoles. It takes place on the coast of Herdaz
  4. Alright so this is something that's been bothering my in one of the interludes of oathbringer we are treated to the pov of a Aliethi officer who is about to be executed for Rape he is given three options he can be beheaded he can get Hammered (not in the good way) or he can wrestle the Hog he picks option three and after seeing a massive claw burst out of the ocean he wonders if maybe the term Hog is a nickname. So what do you think our mystery greatshell is? could it be our mysterious storm walker who Dalinar, Kaladin and Shallan have seen glowing while walking around in a high storm? could it be the a survivor from Aimia? or could this be our first look at a full grown Chasmfiend? I'm leaning towards option three here's why. First it's living in the ocean and Shallan thinks that Chasmfiends might have a relation to the aquatic Yu-Nerig from the seas around Marabethia (I actually suspect these are Chasmfiend babies but I don't have any evidence for this so I'll hold off theorizing for now). second we don't know where the Chasmfiends go after they pupate they could easily head back to the ocean where they can continue to grow until they reach truly gigantic sizes. third I just can't see there being enough food on land even, Shallans comment about there being herds of wild Chull seems like it wouldn't be enough to sustain a reasonable population. however oceans are capable of supporting truly gigantic lifeforms and it would alow them to cover a muchwider area without being detected, note this doesn't necessarily disprove Shallans theory however, a more believable idea is that the adults hunt both on land and sea depending on where the food is. this also makes the idea that no one has found the Chasmfiends before (beyond a few vague legends) a little more plausible. I just have a hard time believing that no Chasmfiend ever wandered out of the unclamed hills in search of food, surely someone would have seen one or had a young newly molted chasmfiend move into populated areas in the search for a territory of it's own (granted they could be social with many different Chasmfiend's living together rather than territorial but based off what we see on the Shattered planes they don't appear to be social). so anyway what do you think the hog was?
  5. Oh my god I just realized I'm I'm a Unhinged Torturer of Heralds, I'm a voidbringer/Fused
  6. Sorry I wen't back and re read it and I think I misinterpreted it I thought the stormfather was implying that the other forces (shards) might be the key if they took interest but I think I was just jumping to conclusions. Especially since the responses Hoid get's to his letters seem to suggest that with one notable exception none of the other shards seem terribly concerned with Roshar's fate. I don't doubt that Cultivation could kill or at least wound Odium but I don't think she has great odds Odium is an expert at killing other shards while cultivation isn't, to give a comparison in a fight between a trained soldier and a laborer who do you think would win? both men are equally or similarly strong but one is a trained killer with an expert knowledge of combat, while the laborer might get a lucky strike I know who I'd place my money on. however like the stormfather said those wounds don't heal so every hit Cultivation can inflict on him means he would be weakened, which I believe would translate into worse odds when/if he gets of of Roshar and resumes his cross Cosmere shard killing spree
  7. This makes sense Cultivation can't hope to beat Odium in a straight up fight so she needs to plan ahead and ensure that he's to tied up fighting the coalition to go looking for her. I do believe however that above all this is a temporary measure, Cultivation can't out gambit Odium forever eventually he's going to either get lucky of figure out her game. I think the stormfather had it right when he said that their best hope was to hope that another shard (most likely Harmony) took note of what was happening and sent help.
  8. Congratulations you've chosen to wrestle the Hog
  9. Lift using Wyndle as a shardblade for the first time while the everstorm is blowing in the background and she shouts out "I will listen to those who have been ignored"
  10. Check on Mraize's shoulder.
  11. Alright to the tune of The Band's up on cripple creek here's Kaladin singing during the highstorm.
  12. I haven't seen anything in the Cosmere that tells me that Aluminum is actually rare it's just that none of the worlds we've seen so far have worked out the modern refinement process. Sanderson telling us how valuable it is, is actually a case of him having done his research. in our world up till 1854 there was only one way to remove the impurities from Aluminum and that was using chemicals and it was so incredibly expensive that for quite a while Aluminum was actually more valuable than gold. and even when they figured out how to use the modern electric processes it required so much energy that it wasn't really feasible until the late 1800s/early 1900s. As to where Hoid got that Aluminum there's a line in WOR where they mention that Aluminum can be soulcast, however people treat it just as an oddity and no one has made the connection that it blocks investiture at least not in recent times.
  13. I like it I like it. Anyway on the subject of Tara I think it would be a very Brandoney plot twist if in book 4 Kaladin goes to visit the little chunk of land he has been assigned to as brightlord and find out that his head maid is very familiar.
  14. A brighter example than every one else, Jasnah verbally tearing into Amaram had me laughing so hard tears were running down my face. The fact that he so richly deserved it just made it funnier.
  15. Finished the Book on the Friday after it came out but I felt I needed a while to digest it before I posted my reactions. OK first off let me say Dam you Brandon for releasing this book during the one week I couldn't get a day off from work. Anyway I liked the book but I just didn't love it like I did WOR the were Prose and Cons here and overall the prose vastly outweighed the cons but still. Cons. the Love triangle. it felt totally unnecessary and I don't fell like it added anything. to many characters. I'm worried here that sanderson is falling into the trap that almost all epic fantasy writers seem to fall into to many characters all having their own story and all going in different directions. I do give sanderson credit here he managed to keep the story moving at a fast pace but the cost of this was I felt like I was constantly being jerked around and I had a much harder time getting into individual characters. Although I do wonder if he's setting up bridge 4 as latter Noveleta characters which would be a solid way of introducing them but I still feel like it ate up to many pages and added a lot of cool but unnecessary things to the story. Eshonia. after all the buildup in WOR nothing she's dead end of story I just feel like there was more to her story and now were only going to see her in flashbacks. no one batting an eyelash at Szeth turning up just seemed like a major plot hole to me. Alright enough about the problems lets get to the good stuff. Teft's story, I really would have rather read it in Noveleta form but that doesn't change the fact that his battle with his addiction was awesome. Elhokar, his whole ark showed him finally growing up and right at the end he even swore the first ideal, it's rare that I feel satisfied at the death of a character I've come to love but for him it worked and I really felt like he was redeeming himself for his failures. Despite me missing Eshonai I did enjoy Venli's chapters as well especially her setting the stage for a rebellion. the responses to Hoids letters especially the last one. the Fact that Harmony of all shard is actually listening is a hopeful sign for Roshar. the moment when Renarin said then what else could I be wrong about... I had to put the book down and collect my thoughts for a while because the dramatic music in my head wouldn't stop playing. and then Dalinar did not disappoint with his epic you can't take my pain speech everything that followed this just bled awesome. Moash ark it was horrible evil and downright despicable.... and I loved every second of it. This is mostly related to my personal tasted in fiction but i find that the best kind of villains are one's that can have a sympathetic reason for starting down the path to darkness then completely burn that excuse and continue down that path entirely of their own free will. I spent his entire story wondering will he be redeemed or not then when he killed Elokar I was like OK this is your last chance do you recognize how revenge hasn't brought you any satisfaction and try to atone or do you just keep going? and then he killed Juraze and I knew he had chosen evil. one last thing that I noticed that I think might be some subtle foreshadowing remember that the first book the ardent was reading was about a love triangle which we sort of saw in this book even if I don't think it was handled well. I think things are going to go poorly for Lift or possibly Jasnah in the back five.
