  1. So, tezim is a herald ...how interesting.
  2. Ok, I've read many of Orson Scott Cards books... and this video is simply wrong.Noone I know who has read his book ever thought that having a ton of children was a message being shoved down their throats in these books. Bean and his wife's plot centers around getting their kidnapped children back, so obviously the importance of children is more pronounced in this series. It is also human and animal nature to reproduce, but if you don't want kids that's perfectly fine. Also, Graff, the man who "died alone" was not depressed when he died, he was satisfied that he had accomplished his life's work. Next, I don't believe it was ever stated that Anton was gay (he may have, I'm not sure on this one.) Next, Card has had other gay characters in his books, Zdorab, from the Homecoming series is gay. He's also one of the only good guys in the series. The videos assumptions about the Mormon church is mostly wrong as well. Finally, yes Orson Scott Card doesn't support gay marriage, he was raised in a church that believes that sex should be between a married man and women. Quote by Card " Oddly enough, even as I am attacked by some as a homophobe, I am attacked by others as being too supportive of homosexuality, simply because I cannot see individual homosexuals, in or out of my books, as anything other than human beings with as complex a combination of good and evil in them as I find within myself. In my own view, I am walking a middle way, which condemns the sin but loves the sinner. " Even if he is wrong about his opinions on homosexuality I do not think he is hateful. Many of his extreme opinions against gay marriage were either written decades ago, retracted, or apologized for. Unfortunetly, he still doesn't support gay marriage, but ever since it has became legal he has decided to not fight against it anymore. Finally the accusation that he is racist is the most incorrect. When I first heard these accusations I did my own research and decided that he is definitely, definitely not racist. his books are some of the most diverse books out there. His book Pastwatch is literally about a bunch of time travelers who go back to change Columbus' discovery of America and the later genocides. Overall, I don't think he is racist, yes he doesn't support gay marriage, but I don't think he is hateful about it, even if he is wrong. Even if he was super racist its a good idea to read things written by a person with opposing views, and I think you're missing out on an amazing book in Enders Game. ( I was multitasking while writing this so if I gave off the wrong impression or if there is any grammar mistakes I apologize)

    Different kinds of Fabrials can be used to instantly communicate, create pumps, heat a room, or take away pain. Soulcasters can turn one substance into another, stormlight can be used as an easy light source, and oathgates can instantly transport you somewhere. Many of these magical devices or substances really dampen the incentive to research new technology. Why would you invent a lightbulb or a telephone if you can just use stormlight or a spanreed? I would say that Roshar is already pretty advanced. New and interesting fabrials are always being invented. There are also the periodical desolations.....which is probably not good for a society's chances of developing advanced technology.
  4. Thanks!
  5. I've recently decided to read The Wheel of Time, but whenever I come on to the 17th shard I'll occasionally see a Wheel of Time post or forum that has a spoiler in the title. Is there a way to make any Wheel of Time posts not show up for me?
  6. These chapters were absolutely amazing! The Dalinar chapter was perfect, (nice watch bro) but now I want to see more Zahel. Hopefully he becomes much more important.
  7. It’s arrived!
  8. I don't want to see another character revival, we can't have everyone come back to life.
  9. Is it possible for me get my hands on Dragonsteel somehow?
  10. The only recommendation I'd make is to read Warbreaker (and the Mistborn books) before the Stormlight Archive.
  11. I feel bad for saying this, but I think someone very important has to die. We've already had two characters resurrected, and no one important has really died yet. It would make everything feel more real and dangerous. ...It better not be Kaladin though. And of course, anything with Nightblood.
  12. I was totally convinced it was Jasnah...but I completely forgot about the Sunmaker. I’ll have to rethink my theory. XD
  13. The Kickstarter is almost over!! Everyone tell your friends! This needs to be funded!!
  14. I can’t wait to read it! Thanks for the advice.
  15. Hello everyone! I am now on a mission read every published work by Brandon Sanderson and I have a question about infinity blade. Do I need to play the games before I read the books? If not, what information should I now before I start.
