  1. That's the one. Thanks for locating it.
  2. There's an Unmade, I can't remember which, but he's described as the Winds of Death, or Screams of Death or some such. Pretty sure it's in the Diagram. I'm to tired, so ill edit this after work with better identification.
  3. I just want to point out something about the Thaylen language. The removal of vowels severely limits how many sounds you can produce, phonetically, in any given language. Anyone trying to read this post out loud, without the vowels, can grasp this concept. So it's really would not be surprising to me that names from Thaylen are coming from a limited pool. You are going to see a lot of repetitive combinations of "sounds". I'm going to plagiarize Game of Thrones for an example: Rhaegar, Rhaego, Rhaenerya, or Rhaeneys, etc. So all that being said, Mrall and Mraize having a similar structure didn't surprise me at all.
  4. Wood does flex, glue can give away, fletchings sway in a breeze. There's no reason an arrow couldn't bend a bit mid-flight. Take Vasher teaching Vivienne Awakening with cloths/ropes. It's the same principal in play (though the aforementioned are much more flexible).
  5. I recal something similar, but the line i recall says obtaining gold isn't cheap, or something to that effect.
  6. Indeed. Makes me think they have more to do with buoyancy levels than intelligence.
  7. Also correct, but I'm talking about the Chasmfiend, not the skyeels. I'm going to go look now lol Edit: okay I see what you were saying about the caption on Chasmfiends. I must've misread your post. So all three creatures have the same tiny Spren floating like school's of fish around them.
  8. Doesn't the Santhid have the same Spren as the Chasmfiend floating around it? I seem to recall the illustrations in WoR depicting them both with those little arrow point spren in schools all around them.
  9. I followed your thought process. Something like a second-self or consciousness in your mind. Or perhaps a better example would be: Yourself looking back at your memories, perhaps when you failed to be true to yourself. Essentially, you're the same person now as you were then; but your different to, and have a different perspective of the events going on. I mean, how many times have we looked back at the past, and wish we'd seen things differently so we could do things differently? I'm having difficulty putting it into words lol
  10. Got.to.agree with Calderis about the Stormfather. However the Alethi are now in Urithiru, presumably Shallon's role there will be research into voidbringer. Is there any reason to assume we arnt going to have a wealth of knowledge to dig through?
  11. I need an "I've already paid for mine" option
  12. Transportation is an inaccurate science " if you know what you're doing. Jasnah does not." - BS SO I doubt that's doable. Perhaps, killing Sadeas was the beginning of this process. Anyone remember the Tower? It seems to fall to the wayside in discussion, in World and IRL. Thousands of men cast into a death trap, completely eclipsed by the emerging threat of an Everstorm; relinquished to the annals of history with no-one left to remember their sacrifices. Except one person who sought Justice for the fallen. One person who remembered the terror and the courage of those who gave all. I can just imagine Adolin pulling a Tyrion Lannister on trial. Heartfelt, sincere, and loaded to the gills with tempered frustration. I can totally see something like this going down.
  13. Indeed. If nothing else; "will not disappoint" could also refer to we 17th Sharders simply gathering more Cosmere information. Sanderson is well aware of how canny we are about picking his work apart
  14. Blades drop into the hand. Dalinar notably disarmed Elhokar with a timely kick, before the Blade dropped into his hand.
  15. There's an entire storming board dedicated to it my chap. There's a pinned thread in there with all the released material. As for me? I read the released material simply out of angst. The SA books are so massive that an appetizer dosnt spoil the entree for me.
