  1. lol i hope theyre trolling with predictions (temeraire over cthulu, the shrike over aslan?)
  2. We have never seen anything indicating that Kaladin can do this though. Adolin says that it takes serious concentration and training, and Kaladin has never done this or even thought about doing it. It's also not in character for Kaladin to run away from a fight by flying a few hundred feet in the air, and stormlight runs out a lot faster than unburnt metals.
  3. I think you could take this WoB either way in terms of the harmonium question, but Silver does have a Cosmere role.
  4. Silver?
  5. combat

    they wrote the ars arcanum right? They certainly know them well, and some of them can be accessed by knowledge alone. With some preparation at least they would dominate
  6. combat

    Yay, bragging rights! I would assume Nazh and Khriss can win since they have access to all the magic systems, but for now W&W cause feats
  7. He stole a bag of atium beads from a Kandra in HoA when the Second Generation took over and sent one of their followers to trade atium for supplies in the outside world.
  8. Raoden has a better chance of killing the lord ruler than susebron does
  9. Signing up as Ashimar
  10. In my mind, severing would be like a shardblade wound. I think a surgebinder with Regrowth could heal stilling.
  11. Kelsier's pewter is close enough to stormlight in stats that I'm going to call it a draw, although pewter is probably a bit stronger and stormlight a bit faster. Kaladin is a far better fighter if it goes hand to hand, but kelsier will probably not want it to go hand to hand once he sees that, or if they start with any prior knowledge of each other. Kelsier could also keep his distance and shoot steel projectiles. Kaladin has a counter to that with his reverse lashings, but if they're fighting in the air that won't be an option. And they'll definitely be fighting in he air. As soon as Kelsier's first jump, Kaladin's mind will go THE SKY IS MINE THE WINDS ARE MINE and he'll have to stay in the air even after he gets shot full of coins, because if he lands it just makes it easier for Kelsier. Kaladin is more mobile in the air, but Kelsier has a reliable ranged attack and atium to make up for it. In the air he also doesn't really need to burn pewter, meaning that he'll be conserving his metal reserves and prolonging his already pretty large endurance advantage. I think the only way for Kaladin to win this fight is to end it fast with the shardblade, and Kelsier's Atium will prevent that. I predict it will turn into an aerial fight, which favors Kelsier because of the higher average distance from each other so he can abuse steel and iron.
  12. Percy is really strong and fast. That's the only real advantage he has here. Kaladin has skill and is close enough in speed to keep up and he can fly and if he touches Percy (and he almost certainly will) a lashing will end him. However, Kaladin's lashings aren't good enough to pull that off until second ideal. Kaladin has no way of losing with the Third Ideal, since he can just throw percy high enough that the fall will kill him, curse or not. (Percy was hurt by Hyperion throwing him across Central Park). 2nd Ideal Kal beats book 4 or before Percy with water or not. He doesn't have a counter for whirlwind or hydrokinesis since he has to get in close to kill. He also beats any version without water. 1st Ideal Kal beats book 4 or before Percy unless they're near the water, in which case he only beats books 1-2 Soldier Kal beats book 1-2 percy and loses to any water boosted Percy
  13. mb an influx of tests/big homework assignments leading up to finals prevented me from showing up more often.
  14. Even ignoring investiture though a steel sword should cut through an aluminum sheath, Edit: minor OB spoiler.
  15. Even though Stormlight is orders of magnitude better than Eragon, Kaladin doesn't really have much of a chance here. Neither of them will be able to affect the other directly with magic, since Eragon has wards that will prevent it and Kaladin's Stormlight passively blocks magic. Eragon's TP is also nullified by Syl, who can defend Kaladin in the Cognitive Realm. Unfortunately, Eragon is a bit faster and far stronger than Kaladin, and his sword will be able to block a shardblade because of its heavily invested nature. Kaladin might be more experienced, but not by very much, and Eragon is unrealistically good with his sword.
