  1. Secret hidden in Adonalsium

    Oops.. I'm not aware that this tidbit is a common knowledge . I'm just so excited when I noticed it for the first time yesterday. Is Galivar Cosmere aware? This is news to me. Can you please share the WoB for this?
  2. This is regarding the statement made by Hoid to Dainar in WoK about Adonalsium. I was going through some of the popular big old threads and found this thread interesting. These comments from users @Devo and @Bloodfalcon seem significant. Hoid definitely is hinting that Adonalsium is an anagram or a combination of words. To make sure I'm not repeating the efforts done by someone, I did a quick internet search about this that revealed this golden post on Reddit (full credit to /u/eMeLDi). Behold everyone! Adonalisum = A mind, a soul On a side note, there are many other possible anagrams, some hilarious ones such as Am slain duo, I a damnation soul, On a-dualism, Anal Odiums TL;DR There could be some secret within the word Adonalsium itself. It could be an anagram of "A mind, a soul" From the WoB in the above 17S thread, that says "Everything Hoid says is significant in this context", I think there is some possibility that this theory had merit. Thoughts? Reactions? Would be great to have some input! Thanks.
  3. Where to send physical mail

    Brandon gave this address in his 2016 State of the Sanderson for sending Magic cards, so I guess you could use it. Dragonsteel Entertainment, LLC PO Box 698 American Fork, UT 84003
  4. Making coppermind mobile friendly

    I think it's the only reliable choice if we want to make wiki mobile friendly using mediawiki. This can be seen by their proposal here where they want to use elements in MobileFrontend to make mediawiki mobile friendly by default. In addition, Wikimedia also uses this extension (source), so it's likely stable. Also all the problems identified with resolutions using MobileFrontend are listed here. I know it could be major time investment from your end, but I personally feel that it would be worth the effort and the instructions to setup does not seem complicated (but being in tech industry myself I know that that something that looks deceptively simple could take significant time when actually tested)
  5. Hi everyone, I want to propose making the coppermind wiki website mobile friendly similar to 17S. Implementation details on whether it's through using other opensource wiki software (instead of mediawiki) that's mobile friendly or installing MobileFrontend extension to the existing mediawiki is upto @Chaos to decide, but I want to put this request out here.
  6. I'm not sure if the 'red' color in the scar is based on magic (Brandon said that corrupted investiture is red like we have already seen in some cases) or based on science (The color of a star comes from the temperature of its surface. The hottest stars are blue, cooler stars are white and yellow, and the coolest stars of all are red). As a side note, what do you guys think about only some star systems having asteroid belt, dwarf planet and comet belt (or some combination thereof)?
  7. I loved the podcast. You people rock!! If you guys are doing another podcast, can you address this weird thing observed in the individual star charts - Is there any significance in only some star systems having asteroid belt, dwarf planet and comet belt (or some combination thereof)? I think the color of the stars in the star chart is significant. The color of a star comes from the temperature of its surface. The hottest stars are blue, cooler stars are white and yellow, and the coolest stars of all are red.
  8. Magical inertness

    We all know that in Cosmere, Aluminum is special due to it's magical inertness properties. While reading the White Sand, I see that a similar material that couldn't be affected by sand mastery is terken (living material or species?). Pure speculation - perhaps terken exhibits weird properties in other magic systems also like Aluminum. We also have no idea how Aluminum behaves in this magic system. Thoughts? Edit: Grammar
  9. May two worlds become one to you

    Oh I see. I was wondering if there had been any other independent source for confirmation of the two worlds on Yolen than mine. Have you also read the unpubished manuscripts of White Sand and Aether of Night? These are set in Cosmere and you can get them by requesting Brandon for a copy here.
  10. May two worlds become one to you

    Hello, welcome to the Shard. Have an upvote!! Also stay away from cookies. I see that your post title has a dedication of a Yolen resident. Did you find it in the WoB recently or is there any other source for it?
  11. Pardon me if this has already been asked before, but is there a way to see our upvoted content like Reddit? I upvote many quality comments on some threads and I like to revisit them again periodically (especially the theory-crafting threads). So is there any way to see this or if not, can we have this feature? I'm not sure how easy or feasible it is to implement.
  12. Hello everyone, I'm wondering if we have a consolidated list of Hoid's abilities we have seen till now. The only ones I can think of are 1. Allomancy: Stealing the Lerasium (WoA), Interacting with Shallan (WoR) 2. Feruchemy: WoB 3. Lightweaving: Stormlight Archive (during narrating story to Kaladin) Do we have evidence of him having or using any other abilities like Breath or Dor?
  13. You are probably right about second and third. But for the first one, during the signing at San Francisco, Brandon RAFOed and said that he does plan on answering this question at some point. So I have no idea if this was as simple as you said or may be there was a deeper mystery to it.
  14. I'm not sure if this is answered before, but if not, could you try asking him if we would get a similar novella like Secret History but from Hoid's point of view in the future? Such a book would have multiple jumps in the timeline and as we know, he will be visiting many places in Cosmere. I'm also curious if all the actions done by Hoid are rational. Having something from his point of view would help clear at least some of these things and provide us clues to the bigger things going on in the Cosmere. No matter how much I think, I can't seem to find a logical explanation to him drinking perfume when he met Wax or acting as an informant to Kelsier or [Edgedancer spoilers].
  15. Interview with Google Discover

    Thanks for the heads up. My bad, forgot to insert the link
