  1. Can you do Shakespeare for the SA by other authors board? Or just post that... it’s awesome!
  2. I think it’s more accurate to say that’s an interpretation by the Russos of Brubaker’s work... Ed Brubaker wrote the original Winter Soldier story. If you did a variant where Helaran was responsible for a revolt you’d have Judd Winick instead...
  3. Cultivation’s Metal: Allomantic: Grants you the ability to manipulate flora - think Poison Ivy. (Plant life; strongly associated with Cultivation.) Feruchemy: Stores Learning. while storing it becomes difficult to master new skills. When tapping new skills are learned quickly. (Cultivating the mind an body.) Hemalurgy: steals reproductive ability. Someone spiked with this will have unusually skilled, beautiful children. If the parent has access to allomancy, Feruchemy, sand mastery, or other forms of inherited investiture their children will have it too. (Breeding; a form of cultivation.) Endowment/Edglium: Allomantic: While burning the allomancer can share their strength, health, mental speed, etc. with one person within range for the duration of the burn. Feruchemic: It can store any property, but can only be tapped by someone else. (Basically, it is open to any Feruchemist EXCEPT it’s creator.) Hemalurgic: Steals Mental Health Devotion/Aonium: Allomantic: Allows you to feel the emotions of others Feruchemy: Allows you to store emotions. Steals Connection. This can have very interesting effects if the Connection to location is stolen from a Sel native. Dominion/Skaium: Alomantic: Allows you to force obedience from someone within range. Feruchemic: Stores Self-Control when tapping one has full mastery over their mind and body. Hemalurgy: Steals Language (including spoken, written, body/non-verbal, tones and signs) Honor/Tanavastium Allomantic: Binds things together for the duration of the burn (like the lashing) Feruchemic: Stores communication. When storing you are unable to communicate with others. When tapping you can make yourself understood even if you don’t speak the correct language. Hemalurgic: Steals Nahel Bond
  4. I still dislike the angel’s role. I don’t think he’s needed. The guests can say something about it being three years. It also defeats the purpose of God’s role being hidden... The passage of time is better shown by the characters aging. If you do really feel the need for an angel please clarify whether it is a Jewish angel or a Christian one. Also, Memuchan and Haman are the man according to many. Having them be played by the same actor would be a nice touch.
  5. Actually birth is probably one of the most traumatic moments in our lives. Good thing we don’t remember it! Think about it: here you are in this nice, comfortable, moist environment. Sure it’s been getting a little cramped lately, but it is all you’ve ever known. There is also this really nice thumping vibration that is just so soothing. Then! Suddenly you are being shoved into this tiny, 10cm tube. When you come out it is to a bright, dry, cold place with no nice thumping vibration. Some stuff just came out of your bottom. There is a loud, strange noise that is coming from inside you. It’s cold inside your chest. It’s completely foreign. Vin’s difficult birth probably means she almost died as she was being born, likely by near asphyxiation (which is probably one of the worst ways to die.) That, combined with the emotional trauma, could have been enough. Without modern medical techniques many infants in her situation would probably not have survived or been severely disabled if they had. Birth is the first great trauma of our lives. We go from the only world we have ever known to an entirely new one. Everything changes, and a difficult birth is painful for the baby as well as the mother. So I don’t think it is so strange that she Snapped then. I think the only reason more people didn’t was due to high infant mortality rates. Difficult childbirth probably lead to stillbirth most of the time.
  6. The BoM seems to bypass the issue by coming from one person. The regular medallions are made by several people.
  7. I just read the relevant parts of SH after completing each book. It made life simpler... Only in HOA did I really try to integrate the two.
  8. I like the Lays better than the prose versions, but that’s just me. ‘The Lays of Beleriand’ is my favorite book in the Legendarium. I also enjoy a lot of the essays in ‘Morgoth’s Ring.’
  9. Aluminum actually is much stronger than people realize. And some aluminum alloys are resistant to manipulation by investiture. So some form of aluminum will probably be incorporated into future body armor.
  10. Of course Scadrial could just make alluminum Alloy armor...
  11. It was confirmed to be Khriss.
  12. Where did you read the Lay then?
  13. This actually made me think more of the rising of Gil-Estel, and the Silmaril on Earendil’s brow. I did read Tolkien first though, so that’s probably why I associate it with that. (Basically, anything that refers to a light and a brow = Earendil, Silmaril and Vingilot.) I did love the poem though, even if it did take me to Beleriand instead of Roshar! And I liked the second too! @hoiditthroughthegrapevine I’m another Silm fan! Though my favorite are the Lays of Beleriand. (I consider the Lays the ‘primary source’ and the Silmarillion a ‘secondary source.’ Pengolodh didn’t see half of what he wrote, if that!) I do need to read the prose Narn though... and I should probably finish the Silmarillion version too... (So I got distracted in the middle and read the poem instead. I much prefer the poem.) My favorite thing about The Lay of Leithian? Luthien is Edith Tolkien. So when the lay says she was the most beautiful woman ever, the Professor is actually describing his wife...
  14. It’s Feruchemy that is effected by Allomancy. We don’t know that the reverse is true.
  15. According to Google translate and a friend who speaks Canadian French, the last two are basically one syllable, the L is swallowed, and the emphasis is on the K. (Think of how you say Denier, then switch out the first syllable. It’s the closest RW equivalent.) If the language has taken on more Germanic sounding elements, which is quite possible, then most people will be mispronouncing that name.
