  1. There's a mausoleum dedicated to Vin and Elend in the center of Elendel. We know from the end HoW that the bodies were repaired, was this supposed to be a tomb for their bodies? While "icky" cold and dry environments might have deterred decay enough that the body might be "habitable". Especially if we're considering the CS more or less teraforms the new body.
  2. Pancakes=Unmade
  3. I seem to recall the herdazian captain say he had managed to wrestle a hog though it's not easy. I tend to think that it's not a Chasmfiend that has grown larger, since Shardbearers are needed to kill the non-pupated ones. That dosnt discount that the hog might still be a pupated Chasmfiend, we simply don't know what they look like post chyrsalis.
  4. Close, he actually said he had trained with all of the Blades.
  5. I thought Teft had only sworn the second ideal?
  6. Dude, I'm tired of reading your ranting. I'm not going through the last page and a half of your arguments. Clearly everyone implicit in the conspiracy stayed silent. Spren and KR beholding. Stop arguing a minor point, because ,as the OP pointed out, no-one in Shadesmar has the facts. Everything is hearsay, and as the "forensic pathologists" we are, this is the logical conclusion.
  7. The OP is working off the wrong premise. H+C had NOTHING to do with the Nahel-Bond. The Spren did it by themselves. They're sapient Cognitive entities I.e. they belong in the Cognitive Realm, and thus lose something in the crossing. We have no idea if the voidspren were designed as splinters/ bonded to listeners, if they're simply recycled souls, or pure Investiture. We just dont know for sure what the mechanics involved are. There is the distinct possibility that Odium engineered them, or by Shardic power moved them, to bypass that effect. Personally, I think Odium is using Listener Souls he has stapled Surges to. Ulim the Emissary IMO is a true Spren that hasn't left the Physical Realm in a looooong time. He's had time to watch, listen, and learn without "trauma".
  8. I think of the Windspren's attraction to Kal as being akin to tornadoes sucking up air. The low pressures of the Tornado cause the air in higher pressures to pull in towards the Center, eventually if it lasts long enough the air becomes a part of a dense swirling mass until the low pressure dissipates. If the process ends early, the air is released. Good Metaphor IMO for what we observe on Notum's ship.
  9. The original Voidbringers were Ashyn refugees. They were Surgebinders and hey worshiped Odium. Now, we've seen in OB that the Fused are clearly wielding Surges and are being powered directly by Voidlight from Odium. It's not a stretch to imagine Odium did the sAme with humans
  10. @Factfinder dude, so many upvotes. You nailed it IMO. Ill be your Herald come confirmation.
  11. Shardbearers are above the law. You either execute them or let them go. And Kal was the defending Elhokar in the end.
  12. The Emisary to the Parshendi states explicitly to Venli: "your friends are dead and gone to the Beyond. Nothing and no-one can bring them back." That's pretty well drawing the line; the Fused displace whoever is in the body.
  13. I very much agree. I've been toying with the idea that Shallon or "maskShallon" as you say is something of split personality. This has been brewing in my head, ever since we learned Shallon had Patternblade as a child. The regression, without breaking oaths and killing Pattern, dosnt add up.
  14. Shallon is a special case. Oaths said, but repressed into the's almost schizophrenia. Shallon didn't really break her Truths, but at the same time the person walking around as "Shallon" dosnt know them. I've been toying with the idea that the Shallon we the readers know, is actually a split personality of "Little Shallon". Comments from Pattern "This isn't the lie, Shallon. Can't you tell?" And other things about the timeline when Shallon got Patternblade as a child arnt adding up. I havnt fleshed my theory out yet, waiting to re-read OB and dig into her chapters first.
  15. There's actually a note about insects some where in OB. I think it's Nazh who mentions that cremlings do indeed cover a broad spectrum of creatures in the eastern lands, insects are pretty much only known to scholars as a small variety of creatures in the eastern mountains near Shinovar. Which is interesting considering the implications of the first desolation.
