  1. Recently Brandon talked about it in Facebook here. There are some interesting tidbits there and to summarize he says "This character may or may not be a Herald - but the text is going to make the answer clear, and I'm not trying to trick you"
  2. Outstanding work Pagerunner! If you intend to keep adding more WoBs in the future into this excel sheet, it will be easier for you to visit https://www.reddit.com/u/mistborn , go through the comments Brandon made in reverse chronological order and look at the context to determine if you should record it. I shamelessly admit to stalking Brandon on Reddit in this way.
  3. WoB on languages and naming in Roshar (probably mentioned elsewhere before) Source: https://www.reddit.com/r/Fantasy/comments/5t9nyy/iamonce_againa_novelist_named_brandon_sanderson/ddlc64q/
  4. Peter said that the third draft undergoes major changes and goes to the beta readers. Fifth draft goes to the copyeditors. (Source: Reddit)
  5. A couple of WoBs. Sources: https://www.reddit.com/r/Fantasy/comments/5t9nyy/iamonce_againa_novelist_named_brandon_sanderson/deb8vb0/?context=3 and https://www.reddit.com/r/Fantasy/comments/5t9nyy/iamonce_againa_novelist_named_brandon_sanderson/dec8edk/?context=3
  6. I had a WoB from San Francisco signing last year that Braize is 9-centric.
  7. 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?
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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)
  11. 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.
  12. 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)?
  13. 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.
  14. 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
