  1. At SLCC, Brandon's booth had fliers for the release party. I'd upload a picture if I knew how... It's at 7pm on November 13 & is hosted by the BYU Store, but will be at the Utah Valley Convention Center after all (@Kav & @Taliax).
  2. My friend asked about this & was told that their eyes do change to the color of their Order, so Shallan's would turn red. Unfortunately the WoB isn't in the database -- it was from Lansing in 2015, which was never completely transcribed -- but I should still have her text from the event on my old phone...
  3. But, the same last name!....Brothers, then? Cousins?? Maybe they're both swimmers?... Aagh, I didn't think I'd be this sad to see my silly theory die. Storms. Haha, thanks, @redbishop!
  4. About the murdered guy: If the murdered Perel is the same Perel from WoR... ...then Adolin definitely lied to Shallan about knowing him. Also, that means the guy who used a swimming term was killed in a pool.
  5. Brandon did address this, at a signing Q&A last year. He said that if he were to die unexpectedly, that whether Stormlight was finished by another author would depend on how far along it was - at this point, today, it probably wouldn't be continued. He said that they might release his notes on it instead, so that his fans wouldn't be left not knowing at least what the plans were. But if it was, say, halfway through or more, they might find another author to write the books.
  6. I agree, and that makes sense....But That's the part I can't reconcile. Not that there aren't good reasons for keeping this secret - there are - but they require a lot of deliberate action and caution, and, well, modesty, none of which are this particular character's strengths.
  7. Not a game-changer, but interesting to me: I asked why Hoid gave the memory coin to Wax, what his motivation was (since it seemed to cast a more positive light on someone Hoid does not like), and Brandon said he did it to correct a lie that was being perpetuated. I said that I was still suspicious of Hoid, to which he said I should be, as those two (Hoid and Kelsier) do not get along. He said that the memory uncovered a truth that Kelsier did not want to be known.
  8. @Argent, you're very welcome! Sorry we didn't get the chance to ask more. Also, I only wrote the gist of the answers - there's much more that Brandon actually said, of course. None of our answers were one word - the transcription will have much more, though still not as specific as you'll want. It really sounded like he was saying there wasn't much to how it started, that the name "Death" was more of a misunderstanding than anything else (which, I suppose, matches the character). I hope we'll learn more than that too, but it might be a while. He's not revealing much about anything that will be in future books. Or so I keep hearing whenever I try to ask. And my memory is faulty (nerves mixed with travel exhaustion) so I can't guarantee which question it was, but he revisited one of our questions later in the conversation and gave a slightly more clear answer, because he had initially thought we were trying to be tricky with the wording. I don't remember any new information coming from it, though. I'm sad to have missed @Brightness Enna (hope you had a blast at your first signing & congrats on getting #2!) and @Herowannabe (whose army-crawling baby was adorable). Someday I'll meet more of you lovely Sharders in person.
  9. Alright, here's my very paraphrased signing report (really not looking forward to the transcription of all my stammering...): Q: Are the similarities of Dalinar's last vision and Shallan's flashback experience of Middlefest, significant? A: No. Q: Zahel calls Renarin "the son of the most powerful human on this—" Does that refer to Dalinar or to his wife? A: Dalinar Q: How would he have ended that sentence? A: "...planet" Q: Which eye does the Sovereign have spiked? And what does the spike give? A: The opposite eye that Marsh has spiked. And nothing special. More to come in Secret History 2 and 3. @Argent's questions: Q: How did Marsh become regarded as Death in Elendel Basin? A: Only because he looks scary and has been present at ominous times. Q: Has Bloody Tan seen the Sovereign? A: RAFO.
  10. You're sweet, @Brightness Enna! I envy all of you who don't have to travel very far, like an hour or less. There are never signings in southern Utah. But it's fun, really - I love these little road trips. Did you get your wristband yet? @Argent, your questions are always so good. We'll probably be able to ask a few of them tonight.
  11. Wasn't sure if we'd make it to this one, but we drove up this morning. Just under 500 km for us, which seems like nothing now.
  12. Oh, my apologies! I somehow completely overlooked that part, but I see it now. (Probably blinded by my old Vasher-is-Taln theory. ) I've had the belief for a while that Vasher didn't accomplish his reason for Returning, so he's stuck as he is, being immortal with no grand purpose. If he Returned more than once, that makes him a hero instead of a man living with failure, and his character doesn't make sense to me anymore. There's obviously SOMEthing more about Vasher, something more than him being Returned. I wouldn't be surprised if he was a worldhopper before NB was made, but not sure if this sort of reincarnation can work in the cosmere... *stops and thinks about the very end of Bands of Mourning* ...Huh.
  13. Any time someone has asked if the Heralds are native to Roshar, it's been RAFO'd (sorry, I can't link the relevant quotes - I'm on mobile - but one was from Salt Lake Comic Con a couple years ago). But the biggest problem with Vasher as a Herald is probably the timeline. The Aharietiam was 4500 years before TWoK; Vo Returned only 1000 years before Warbreaker. Damnation, I'd love for this to be true, but I can't make Vasher fit.
  14. Yeah, definitely not! Thank you!
  15. Will someone please fix this very accidental downvote? I moved too quickly to press the other one and missed. Great questions, zas678! I meant to upvote you!
