  1. I just want the ideas to float freely
  2. Odium did not invest in any planet/system except for Roshar. And even that he was most probably made to do. He would not willingly give up some of his power. We know he fought Devotion and Dominion without doing so.
  3. sh spoilers

    What others said. Also IRE are not from the third continent, they are Elantrians. And they are old, definitely pre-reod old, probably many years pre-reod. Btw, Brandon said that Sel is pretty advanced at this point.
  4. is that a fact ofr a guess? I thought the pipeline would be pretty hermetic, because it would be stupid to just let the Dor out everywhere. A giant aluminium pipe was in my mind, but maybe I let myself go xD If you're right, then the pipeline would have to go around Nalthis, and the end of it, near Scadrial, it would end up more to the west than what I've drawn, so it is possible I think.
  5. Impossible. Shardblade is essentially a splinter and it is hard to take of a planet it is connected to. The had to know a way to do it, so there is no way they would just mistake a Shardblade for a ordinary knife.
  6. Hello. In this thread I posted my proposition of cosmere CR map along with speculation where Silverlight might be, but the thread is a bit old and not a busy one, so I decided to post a new topic, to induce a brainstorm. So. Just quickly: The map was created by rotating the star map by 90 degrees. Rosharan shadesmar expanses theories seemed to be fitting with it. The idea of Ashyn and Braize access via nexuses comes from the fact that in cognitive they would be very close to Roshar, much closer than planets dozen systems away, like Scadrial, that can be reached by the Expanse of the Vapors. The distances are of course irrelevant, as they get condensed in the cognitive. I just drawn over the star map. The star map is an artistic vision, so the directions are not perfect either. Cardinal Directions Because they exist in minds of sentient life forms, I believe they exist in the Cognitive realm. Also, Nazh tells Kelsier to go west to find IRE. Another thing is the order of planets in the planetary system. I don't think they would move around much, so I organized them the way the planet closest to the sun would be closer to north in cognitive. I am not too attached to this idea though. Btw, I think the Southern Scadrial is also south on this map. Pathways I've drawn potential pathways. Note that there is no direct pathway from Roshar to First of the Sun - I think it goes through Braize, just like a path from Sel to First of the Sun goes through Nalthis. I was also thinking if Expanse of the Broken Sky might in fact lead to Threnody, while Taldain could be accessed via Ashyn, but I concluded that there is no reason to complicate the matter, because we lack information anyway. I guess the only way to not get a RAFO on that would be to show this to Brandon and hope he is impressed enough to clarify Dor pipeline So IRE has a pipeline through the cognitive realm that transports Dor. And their fortress was to the west from Scadrial. I just drawn the straight line from it to Sel. I know the fortress isn't exactly to the west, with Sel being north-west from Scadrial, but neither my nor the original star map are super accurate, so we should probably not fixate on this too much. Silverlight Now this is just a wild speculation. > The star map is a visualization as imagined from Silverlight, not an effect of space exploration > Silverlight is solely in the cognitive realm > Cognitive realm is entirely flat > Therefore there is no way Silverlight is in a plane that allows this view. I think the star map was made by someone who simply traveled the Sardworlds and mapped them in the Cognitive realm. Silverlight is supposed to be a meeting point. Therefore I think it should be somewhere between the major Shardworlds. I've drawn a few ideas: a: Between Sel, Taldain and Roshar - that would be between the three most cosmere-aware/realmatically-aware planets (excluding Yolen). b: All roads lead to Rome Scadrial, so I thought Silverlight would have a convenient path to Scadrial as well. And Taldain, except for Yolen, is the first Shardworld with cosmere-aware people. I find this one to least likely though. c: My favourite. Not only would that put Silverlight in the most densely populated area, but also on the way of IRE's Dor pipeline, which, I believe, would be quite convenient for Sel-descendant people. d: Silverlight would be in proximity of Yolen. Many people believe The Scar is the location of Yolen. If it is, Silverlight would be between The Scar and the rest of the Shardworlds. I'm interested to hear what do you think and what ideas about Silverlight you have may contradict my map
  7. If we all agree that 1000 breaths is not enough to make a sentient blade, why do you think it is enough to manipulate already heavily invested object? We've been told time and time again that difficulty of affecting and invested object is proportional to the amount of investiture it holds. No way 1000 breaths would be enough to affect a shardblade.
  8. Damnation. I just thought of this exact theory, and someone have already done it. I made a map and everything. Eh. Let me quote Wit then. Bonus: I mapped the entire thing. The distances are of course irrelevant, as they get condensed in the cognitive. I just drawn over the star map. The star map is an artistic vision, so the directions are not perfect either anyway.

So yeah, I hope that at least adds something new
  9. ^ Humans are bad with patterns
  10. I just got one in a t-shirt printing house thing. The graphic was from /sanderson memes thread.
  11. Yeah, definitely, dye replaces pigment in your hair with artificial one (well, sort of, that's the general idea) while toner just sticks pigment to keratin cuticle of a hair.
  12. Purple faded faster. It was pink after one wash. Blue stayed longer and it was staying blue - only lighter shades of blue. But that was with toner, I'm not sure how would that be with a proper dye.
  13. Permanent = with developer, not just a cream colour. But even permanent dyes of unnatutal colour fade :c blue lasts more or less as long as red (not copper), so after a month or so it won't be vibrant anymore, the colour will wash out a little. But trust me, it's still better than toner, toner only lasts 2-3 weeks in theory, in reality, it lasts 2-3 hair washes, that was always one week for me. After two weeks my hair looked pretty much like that: So yeah, toners are a let down. Btw I just saw that Schwarzkopf live has purple, but its more burgundy than violet. Maybe some other brands have something better, you need to ask in a hair salon.
  14. It's not http://www.theoryland.com/intvmain.php?i=1048#17
  15. Yeah, I go for lighter colour. I used to love auburn too, but changed my mind ;D Navy blue is not that hard to do, there are already permanent blue dyes. Purple is much harder, it can only be done with semi-permanent stuff, like toners and foams and such. I don't have that pic on my phone anymore, so here's from instagram My purple was lighter than what you want, so my guess is your way doesn't use bleaching. And so I discourage it, because after two hair washes there will be barely any colour visible. Not that I encourage bleaching, it's awful XD So my advice is to give up on purple and do only navy blue with a permanent dye.
