  1. Dude, well done. This was fantastic. I'm looking forward to seeing your other videos!
  2. At first I was disappointed to hear that The Lost Metal may be slipping back in Brandon's writing schedule (he'd hoped to squeeze it in end of 2018 but that doesn't look likely at this point). But I was just reminded that Era 2 takes place after Stormlight - so with that perspective it makes perfect sense for SA to take precedence. But then it begs the question, why write Era 2 at all now? Did he simply not want to wait a decade plus before writing a follow-up to the hugely successful Era 1 books?
  3. There's a debate in this one about "cognitive realm" vs "shadesmar" as the cosmere standard. I'm actually not at all surprised - regardless of the origins (yeah, maybe elantrians accessed it earlier than rosharans, idk), it's a fitting name. Literally "sea of shades", so maybe once everyone heard that it just stuck because it was simple and evocative.
  4. @[email protected] suggested that perhaps Ingenuity resides in silver light. Given Khriss's reaction to kelsier when she found out that he'd directly interacted with Leras, I don't think that's likely. She seemed awed that he'd spoken directly with a shard.
  5. I agree with what many have said that I don't see Odium as the long-term big-bad, like others, I'm not even convinced there is a big bad in the grand scheme. One thing I recently noticed is that all of the protagonists seem to be on Hoid's side, whatever that means. Perhaps that's one side of the conflict, and the other are those who simply oppose his plan, whatever it is. In such a conflict, I don't think either side is necessarily good or evil.
  6. Oh, the wonderful things a Radiant can do! Would you like to do them too? :-D Great idea!
  7. Echoing a lot of thoughts. The ending of book three was the most satisfying wrap-up (and twist) I've ever read. Starting with Era 2 would rob you that satisfaction.
  8. @Artemos that's exactly how I'd pictured it... Why then the confusion? Are we oversimplifying?
  9. @Czernobog sorry to break it to you, but as a semi-Texan, "y'all" can be singular or plural. It's dumb, I know, but that's how people use it. If people want to emphasize the plurality of "y'all" they'll say "all y'all."
  10. I'm certain this has been Q&A'd before but I can't find a reference... In Secret History, when kelsier is getting close to the IRE fortress he describes odd rock formations: "strange formations of rock, like glassy sculptures". Do we know what the significance is of these formations? Also, related, what are the plants in that cognitive realm. Thanks!
  11. ... or maybe Hoid is the R2-D2 of the Cosmere
  12. Good point @Wander89, that can't be a coincidence that in every case the story's protagonist is on Hoid's side (except, I should note, Hoid and Kaladin's funny relationship)

  14. Ok, so maybe Musk didn't figure out Elantris' magic, BUT, his team did build a robot that sounds rather Seon-like for the Space Station. https://www.theverge.com/2018/6/28/17513410/spacex-iss-nasa-commercial-resupply-15-falcon-9-launch-dragon-watch-live
