  1. Do we have confirmation that the sequel "Nightblood" will be set before stormlight? I had imagined there were things we needed to see in stormlight before he would write it. (Pure conjecture on my part)
  2. You're right, he doesn't say it will be in Oathbringer, my mistake. A year ago he said that the answer of "what happened to Vivenna" - "would be answered soon".
  3. Oh it's far from a lock, but then again i dont see vivenna showing up in oathbringer with a sign around her neck saying "I'm Vivenna guys! See all the 100% indisputable evidence?" If it WAS Vivenna she would probably pick a race that matches a particular state of her hair. If shes going with yellow, then riran/ iriali would work. Appears vapid...well she's not going to necessarily want to appear as a strong confidant woman at the moment. Maybe she is appearing weak/dumb for strategic purposes. Has a supposed brother; Thats going to be needed in a male dominated society if she wants to get anything done easily. Vivenna? Maybe, maybe not. I'm certainly not going to rule it out.
  4. Yes, the evidence that Vivenna = Evi is stacking! First the name has similar aspects, then there's the emphasis placed on her hair: "But that hair. It made her stand out, like a candle’s glow in a dark room" Plus the fact that Brandon told us to keep an eye out, we would see Vivenna in this book.
  5. Brandon tweeted this out, how awesome is that!
  6. I agree, Scadrial was my first thought.(though not because of the "rial" as many words like fabrial and sebarial also end in rial)
  7. Slave? Just because this guy claims he is from bridge 13 doesn't mean he was a actually ever a slave.
  8. So this "Rial" guy seems out of place. 1. "he was a little pale for an Alethi and had dark brown hair." (More of a description than we'd normally see, and specifically [but minor-ly] NOT like the Alethi) 2. Recognized a watch and knew what it was. Ways to identify him: Has a habit of rolling a sphere across his knuckles (maybe does this with coins in another world?) (Wax does this once, but the other descriptors don't seem to fit.) Has a unique way of talking "ta" instead of "to". Very perfect salute, yet lazy attitude. Unfortunately I only have Stormlight in electronic form, and hence cannot search the other books for keywords. Any ideas?
  9. @draginon, I'm from dfw also, and usually houston is where I go for signings. He hits Murder by the Book (local bookstore) on almost every major tour and it's not too long of a drive (4 hours or so).
  10. Just to go back to your original post...the interludes of stormlight archive hold more worldhopper and cosmere info than most of the rest of the book. Definitely read them!
  11. If you research you would find that most fan artwork reflects the features of the artist, except in specific cases where a bigger deal is made of their characteristics.
  12. Maybe the shin are originally from Taldain, making their sun worship legit ;-)
  13. The progress bar on Brandon's website has changed from the draft (at 91%) to "copyedit review" at 67%! Just another thing to get hyped about in advance of November!
  14. Yes! Good job on the catch, it's one of many easter eggs within the Stormlight Archive! Keep your eyes open for more (and if you want help discovering them, go to coppermind.net and read the articles on Hoid or worldhopper.) Congrats on your first find, there's a lot of fun stuff ahead of you!
  15. True, a well cut gem can, and the better cut the more held and for longer. I was thinking of little straw men and cloaks and things that are neither gems nor perfectly shaped for the sole purpose of holding stormlight.
