  1. It is as complete as it can be unless there is some way to clean up the audio. Most of the relevant questions are in the TL database, though.
  2. Noted, adding to my to-do list! Nice work!!
  3. I have added a lot of the questions to Theoryland, and the rest I have gotten a rough transcription of, but not enough to type out, due to the audio issues, so those will take a little more time. I use a Memorex MB2059C which records digitally but doesn't have a USB port for uploading, so I have to use the earphone jack to transfer to my PC.
  4. I added the transcript to the Theoryland database also since it looked somewhat complete. Some great information in there!
  5. I think Brandon implied at JordanCon that Iyatil is from Silverlight: Interview: Apr 23rd, 2016 Brandon Sanderson RAFOlympics at JordanCon 8 (Verbatim) Question Obviously the world covers different planets, but most people on individual planets don’t know about the other planets. Is there a planet within the Cosmere where worldhopping is common knowledge? Brandon Sanderson Is there a planet in the Cosmere where worldhopping is common knowledge. Um… it’s not a planet. Someone: It’s a space station? [Audience laughs] That’s no moon! Brandon Sanderson That’s… not as far off as people laughing think that it is. [More laughter] It’s not a space station, it’s not that futuristic, but there is a place in the Cosmere where a lot of worldhoppers have settled, is where Iyatil is from, even though her ethnicity is not from there. Question Clarifying question. Is that place in the Physical Realm? Brandon Sanderson [laughs] RAFO! Question It’s the Cognitive Restaurant At The End Of The Universe? [many references to Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy follow]
  6. The part in parentheses is not in the TL database.
  7. That makes sense, but I don't know if that is an impediment to spren. One thing I just noticed when looking at the Shadesmar map is that Rall Elorim is on the cusp of the Nexus of Transition and the Nexus of Truth, and maybe that is more important to the spren. Those are interesting names. Transition could imply the path to the beyond or maybe it could be alluding to soulcasting/transformation, and Truth could imply that there are cryptics there.
  8. We know little so far about Rall Elorim, except that it has a reputation that goes unspoken by Lift. It has an interesting nickname, The City of Shadows, but while it sounds descriptive, it also sounds incomplete. However, considering the reveals about Heralds and souls and cognitive shadows from the 12/05/2016 Chicago signing, I think that the nickname should actually be The City of Cognitive Shadows, which ties in the in-universe meaning of Shadows. So, what would give the city this nickname? Perhaps the city is populated in Shadesmar, and there are bleedovers from the cognitive realm into the physical realm. Perhaps Lift was able to interact with whatever is in the Shadesmar area of Rall Elorim and didn't care for that, explaining why she left.
  9. Likewise! And this is representative of JordanCon, absolutely.
  10. Easy enough with Kindle 31 mentions of cremlings in The Way of Kings, but nothing stood out. 38 mentions of cremlings in Words of Radiance, and 3 instances seem noteworthy: Mraize shoots a cremling with a dart at the meeting in the wilderness (pg 627). Kaladin and Syl see a cremling when Kal is in prison (pg 767). Teft throws a rock at a cremling while they are standing vigil for Kaladin to return (pg 840).
  11. If the audio isn't clear, I will probably have to transcribe it from the original which is clearer, but that will take some time.
  12. I have finished uploading the audio to my computer for the 12/3/2016 signing. It is on my shared google drive, broken up into 7 files, if anyone would like to help out with transcribing. Some of the audio may be difficult to hear over the crowd noise but I did what I could to clear up the audio on these files. The original audio is much cleaner but it does not store the audio in downloadable files so I wasn't able to upload the audio cleanly. If you transcribe a file, please note which file (1a, 1b, 2a, 2b, 3, 4a, 4b) and include timestamps for the questions. If you can't access the audio or document, let me know. Thanks! ETA: I will try to clean up the audio files and re-upload them to make them more audible.
  13. Based on what Brandon said, my guess would be that if Sazed could produce atium (which is an assumption) that it might change from Ati's version since 300+ years have passed.
  14. It's not a thing, just a hypothetical question that I asked Brandon about. I didn't add it to my post since I didn't remember enough of the answer to paraphrase it very well, but the answer essentially was that if Kelsier created a metal while holding preservation that it would have acted the same as lerasium, though over time the properties of it might shift. I was trying to establish if the vessel would have any influence over the god-metal.
  15. I was at the signing, and setup a recorder for the questions that Brandon answered as he was signing books, but there are hours of recordings so it will be some time to transfer them to a computer for transcribing. I shared my live video of the initial lecture/q&a/reading to the open facebook group The Stormlight Archive. I also asked a lot of questions and got some answers, paraphrased (or some cases verbatim) as follows: Does the Expanse of the Broken Sky refer to Taldain? RAFO. (for Drew) How much area do highstorms cover? Ask Isaac. Why is Nazh short for Nazrilof? It's a nickname. Is it relevant that Lift was ten when she stopped aging? It isn't a coincidence. (for Alice) Is silver invested in the Threnody system? RAFO. I asked for info about Hoid's silver sword and he replied verbatim (personalization) that it is not invested but that it has personal value to him. Can Lift convert cremling shells to investiture? She can only convert what she is able to metabolize to investiture. Ym is confirmed to not be an Edgedancer. Does that mean that he would have become a Truthwatcher? Yes. Why don't mistborn use aluminum vials? Because they are too rare and expensive, though aluminum utilization is increasing in the AOL era. Has Dalinar been on the bondsmith path for a long time? How about Gavilar? Yes to both. Does Wit know what became of Helaran? Depends on where Wit was, so maybe. How long has Khriss been cosmere-aware? RAFO. Is gestation period for humans the same on Roshar as Earth? Basically, yes. (for Andrew) What is stick's talos? To be the best stick it can. (for Andrew) Will the everstorm only affect Parshendi or will it also affect those with Parshendi blood like Horneaters? RAFO.
