  1. Are there really 16 Surges?

    Right... 16 for preservation. 10 for Roshar. i expect one for autonomy.
  2. Something Darkness Said..

    For BS to say demigod level... That's interesting. Mentioned them right next to shard bearers... And grouped them together, but called out that they have different levels. Maybe Hoids quest is to go around the cosmos trying to get to demigod level... Knowing becoming a shard bearer means killing a shard, and taking it, and having it change you. But demigod... It's also deific level, but a shard doesn't change who you are?
  3. Voidbringers

    I like this theory. I never thought of voidbring. I guess Lift should be telling Wendell to "voidbind" that... Instead of "voidbring" that.
  4. Sword-Nimi

    "nim" is the honorific in Korean (which Sanderson knows)... And attaching "I" at the end of a noun is a grammatical marker in Korean... putting "nimi" at the end of a proper noun in Korean makes sense.
  5. [Spoilers] Szeth

    I always wondered if what really made szeth no longer truthless... Was that the truths that he was accused of being false... And thus sentenced him a truthless... This truths were actually true. And because of the realization that he wasn't really truthless... But still did all those terrible things... He let himself die as the natural end to justice. and since death met justices need, he thinks of himself as free now.
  6. Knights Radiant not extinct?

    This is where I thought all the shard blades came from
  7. The Dor

    Wait. Odium knew investiture would gain sentience how? Because he saw it before somewhere? Have we seen it before? (Unmade I guess?, but was that before shattering D&D?) Seems like what Odium did to D&D on Sel was not a rash plan... but a well though out strategy. He didn't just "pop" over there and do the deed... he really thought out in advance about how to kill them, who to ally with, and where to stash the bodies.
  8. Bondsmiths theory

    Exactly - he's already leveled up twice in this thread. I wish I could level up that fast.
  9. Dalinar's Shoulder

    Sure. What I was calling out - is that it is less about healing old injuries; and more my hypothesis that proto-radiants seem to not accidently heal things they subconsciously think should/could not be healed (kalidan's slave scar, Dalinar's battle scars -which he probably thinks of as trophies that were earned.) I bet as full radiants they could consciously heal them if they wanted to. They just currently have mental blocks subconsciously - because they identify who they are with those scars; and so are not accidently subconsciously auto-healing them.
  10. Romance you hope will happen?

    I like it. I like the insight in the oathbringer flashbacks into Dalinar's character, and how his feelings towards Navani affected (rashly) certain decisions he made. I think many people's characters are shaped by wanting things they cannot have; and I like the twist of wanting such a think for so long - and then all the mixed emotions of finally getting it (betraying his brother, public perception, feelings for Navani). Love how Navani shows up as a character... she doesn't care what anyone else thinks.. She has a confidence and ego to go about her business the way she feels she should. And I love how she chases/pressures Dalinar... which eventually climaxes in Dalinar telling off Elokar. One of the top scenes... So yeah, I like that.
  11. And in both the Kholin's case... and Shallan's case, the spren are choosing multiple people in the family (assuming speculation on Shallan's brother being a proto-radiant). Makes you wonder what the back story on Lift's parents will be.
  12. Dalinar's Shoulder

    Although not always that simple, black & white. I.e. Kaladin's slave scar on his forehead. Kaladin seemingly has been healing himself a long time. But not his scar, because he thinks it should be there. Perhaps Dalinar is the same - he been unconsciously healing himself; except for things he thinks should be there (like battle scares)?
  13. Renarin Kohlin

    Totally agree. My initial hypothesis, was that Renarin's witnessed the murder. But I like yours as much... He foresaw the murder. What if it was both: he foresaw it, then he followed Adolin (in the shadows) to see if it would really happen, and he saw it. I bet that is a big part of the evolution of a truth watcher... Is learning that the foresight they have is actually true. Initially when he started foreseeing things, probably thought it was luck or coincidence. It would take a number of them actually happening to believe that it is actual foresight. What if he was still deciding how accurate / real his foresight was and that's why he followed Adolin. so yeah, I agree with you.
  14. Exactly. Love Jasnah. WoR chapter 7 was really shocking for me. I had to stop reading for a while.
  15. First of the Sun used to have a shard (speculation)

    That's interesting. When you put it that way, I feel like it's something we've seen Vasher do before.
