  1. Hey again, So I've been wondering about the whole special importance of 16 in the Cosmere and its relevance but after thinking about it for a while I realised I could only come up with 2 places where 16 is important (Shards of Adonasium and Investiture on Scadrial). Not only that but the number 10 has as many if not more places of importance (10 surges, 10 essences, 10 heralds, 10 fools, 10 biochromatic heightenings) granted lots of these are on Roshar and could have the same root cause but the 10 Heightenings make me suspicious. Then there's AonDor which oddly has 62 Aons and no real reason why. So I suppose I have 2 questions, 1) Why is there a deviation from the importance of 16? 2) Are then any examples of the importance of 16 that I missed? Any help would be greatly appreciated
  2. Welcome fellow UK Sanderfan, Have a Cookie, They're delicious. Ignore any weird voices telling you to kill after eating one. P.S. Have an upvote.
  3. If you could find any links to the WoBs that'd be really great.
  4. Hey, So I have no idea if this has been talked about before or if the idea is new, but I recently started thinking about investiture and the way it works. So I was wondering if all power in the Cosmere comes from one main source "investiture" and each magic system is basically a "lens" which you use to channel investiture into different forms e.g. different metals cause different powers in Mistborn and the Aons and their modifiers change the way AonDor acts. Therefore is it possible to combine multiple "lens"/Magic Systems to create new powers not necessarily connected to the original system where combinations of magic systems create new different magic systems. Anyway, it was just a thought and I think it would be an interesting thing to see especially with Hoid collecting different types of investitures, he could have weird unexplainable powers caused by mixing investitures.
  5. Atium is stated as a God Metal, Part of Ruin like Lerasium. It is said to alloy with all 16 base metals hence Malatium. Not to mention chemically Electrum is an alloy of Gold and Bendalloy is an alloy of Cadmium. I admit the effects are different but they are both related to time (temporal). It's an interesting idea but it doesn't quite fit with the way Brandon has set up the magic system so far.
  6. Can I be Lin Beifong?
  7. Hey there, So, apart from the Rithmatist (which I am reading at the moment), I have read all of Brandon's books and I'm looking for suggestions for series that are similar (in terms of diverse magic systems, good mystery, etc.) It be great if people could suggest any good reads Thanks very much
  8. you forgot Liespren/Cryptics(Pattern) Inkspren(Ivory) Cultivation spren(Wyndle) Whatever kind of spren Glys and Ym's spren are. HighSpren(Skybreaker spren) and then a few like luckspren and stormspren
  9. Thanks for the help and for proving me right
  10. So I found a cool picture on like of some Mistborn glass knives and showed them to my friend. He thought looked cool but that the blades of the knives were the wrong colour (they were clear glass). He thought they should be black (obsidian). This sparked a dumb argument and we now want a definitive answer. Are all Mistborn knives obsidian or are there some obsidian ones and some glass ones? Please settle this stupid fight.
  11. Make them work out the molecular masses of the Mistborn metals like steel or duralumin Moles were a pain when I was taking High School Chemistry so it may be good practice
  12. I think the characters in the interludes may become Radiants. And the interludes are there to stop it from feeling like these new Stormlight infused characters we're just dumped in hap-hazardly. Rysn would make a great companion to Shallan and Jasnah, maybe a Truthwatcher or another Elsecaller.
  13. I reckon Rock would make a great Surgebinder. I think a Dustbringer would be the most fitting/ coolest. Though it's unlikely as he's probably gonna become one of Kaladin's Squires
  14. Far more in the way of a Mistborn (although a full Feruchemist would be cooler.) It gives you cool powers that are not just physical, I mean soothing and rioting alone could sell me on it above the other two. It'd make my like so much easier.
  15. I took it to mean that Ym would be an Elsecaller rather than a Truthwatcher but I guess we'll know more when Stormlight 3 comes out.
