  1. Hoid is the like second oldest (or just one of the oldest) being in Cosmere, so... He is older than Scadrial. He is older than Shards although not necessarily older than their Vessels. Compared to him, Vasher is kinda young.
  2. Yeah, we know: https://wob.coppermind.net/events/361-rbrandonsanderson-skyward-ama/
  3. I need to update it with Edgedancer and OB info but maybe this will help:
  4. *coughs* Keep pushing *coughs*
  5. I have two problems with your theory (which was very nicely put together): The screams stormform Eshonai hears are her own. It is implied in OB that eventually she would have broken free. And this WoB... huh. It's your WoB? For me it implies that someone who would have done similar things somewhere else, that person would also hear the screams. And other places in Cosmere do not have Unmade...
  6. Wow, @robardin, you explained it better than me. As for the fourth way - given the way that seeing the future works in Cosmere, I think it depends on the way the randomness is generated. Most generators aren't truly random; only pseudo-random - those would probably generate atium shadow. The truly random ones would probably cause multiple atium shadows. At least, that's how I see it.
  7. No. Why would they? They'd see multiple electrum shadows of themselves and single atium shadow of everything else. If you're confused about atium-electrum interactions, this thread may be useful: EDIT: Dammit @Calderis! Ninja'd!
  8. Oh man, this thread really died.
  9. We don't know. We only have... no, wait, we don't have any data points on this.
  10. I agree with Calderis. Preservation isn't a "void" in the "change spectrum". Preservation is active upkeep of a state, working counter to anything that may change it.
  11. Am I doing this right?
  12. *cries about shipping to Europe*
  13. Hmmmm... Good question. I guess that they don't know, either. After all, he's the first Herald to also join his Order.
  14. I'm sorry, Extes. But Forgery is high-Investiture magic, for the love of Adonalsium! The second bold is more related to the topic we're discussing but I guess fakign having a spren takes way more power than faking being an Allomancer? Is that preferable? With the first WoB which states that the actual soul would take less damage and the fact that there are bindpoint on non-vital parts of the body (like ears), this would minimize the damage due to Hemalurgy. Still horrible but should be surviveable. With some regeneration kind of healing magic (so not the Selish kinds but more like Feruchemical gold or Stormlight) you could even patch up the soul, so it should be kinda OK.
  15. About that freedom of speech, relevant xkcd that may be of use in the future for people in cases like this: Title text: I can't remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you're saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it's not literally illegal to express.
