  1. So I just finished re-listening to The Alloy of Law on audiobook and I have a question regarding Marsh. Obviously, he has found some way to stay alive. I feel like the most obvious way he did this is with a combination of Allomancy and Feruchemy, just like the Lord Ruler used. However, I see a potential problem. In Feruchemy, atium is used to store physical age. However, in Era 2, atium is merely a thing of legend. I thought I remembered via WOB that the power of Harmony that would have coalesced into atium is instead being used elsewhere for some other, as of yet, unknown purpose. If this is the case, how is Marsh staying alive? Did Harmony merely allow enough atium to form that would let Marsh survive 300 years, or is there another reason?
  2. What do you guys like? Trying to get a general sense. I personally prefer GraphicAudio, I love the fact that it has voice actors, sound effects, and original music, but I know that they can be overwhelming and very, VERY loud at certain points. Also Andy Clemence as Dalinar Kholin is just so perfect. That man was made for the role.
  3. Gotta say Steelpushing. Realistically, other than also possessing Steelrunning, Steelpushing is the only way to stay ahead of him if he ever manages to catch up to you. I'd just have to make sure he didn't get close enough to Ironpull my anchors as I'm bounding away.
  4. Hmmm, interesting thought. I would say that the Set would certainly try something like this anyways. Well, except for the fact that they are no longer in Trell's employ
  5. Those are some really kind words... thank you. I still think I would like to listen to some more Writing Excuses and Brandon's YouTube videos before getting anything down on paper, but I feel a little more ready to try now. Isn't there a place on these forums to post personal works like that?
  6. Thanks, that's a big help! I'm afraid I'm not familiar with the "7-point structure", but I'm not very well-versed in the many concepts behind writing (I'm an engineering student, so math is my forte). However, I feel like I've always had some sort of story simmering in my head. I absolutely love reading and want to try to craft a story of my own. I've been developing one in particular for the past year or so, but haven't put anything down on paper, in part because I'm afraid that if I try, I'll ruin what I have in my head, and in part because I just don't have free time. I thought that listening to Writing Excuses would be an excellent starting point for listening to the nuances of writing, and yeah, Brandon's YouTube videos sound like a good idea too, so I'll have to check those out. Thanks!
  7. Okay, well now I just had an image in my mind of the final battle between humanity and Odium, with both sides are facing each other off, and suddenly Hoid appears, wielding a Shardstick and beating the crap out of Rayse with it.
  8. If I may, I believe I speak for everyone when I say that the poplar opinion is that puns are accepted and welcome. As of right now, I am budding with tons of ideas for great puns, so I'll be sure to share them. And I'll have you know, I worked my ash off to come up with these, so could you just leaf it be? I do, however, regret King Cole's suffering at my puns. Poor sap.
  9. Hello all, This is my first time starting a topic on these forums and, well, my first posting ANY topic on ANY type of forums. So like I said, a beginning. Anyway, I just listened to Writing Excuses for the first time, despite seeing constant updates from Adam on Brandon's website about it. This weekend, I tried it out by listening to both the most recent episode and the very first episode. I gotta say, I've been missing out. I really enjoyed listening to it. Just out of curiosity, who are the other people that are part of the podcast? Brandon is the only one that I specifically know of.
  10. Old post, and tough choice, but c'mon. Mistcloak is the obvious selling point
  11. King Cole, we have heard your summons. We have answered your call. I bring with me all the individual sticks from Stick's Interlude (what, did you think it was one stick repeating the same thing over and over?), and I know my other brethren are not far behind. I guess it's time to *puts on sunglasses* branch out.
  12. You know, most of the time when I see fanart as good as this I find myself that I had a fraction of the artist's talent. This time, though, all I can think is that there would be no other way to depict this scene. This is absolutely gorgeous, both from a visual and storytelling standpoint. Also, I just realized that you are the same artist who did "above the storm". I'm definitely following you
  13. Don't know if this post is still alive, but now that we've seen Sony take control, and with the recent news that Amazon Studios is developing, what do you guys think? I'm personally stoked for it, here's to hoping it will be even better than GoT
  14. For me, it has to be the entire conversation between Hoid and Shallan in chapter 68. Particularly this line: "Yes, yes. Aim for the sun. That way if you miss, at least your arrow will fall far away, and the person it kills will likely be someone you don't know." Thanks, Wit. I appreciate you.
  15. Man is that eye-catching and absolutely gorgeous
