  1. Fellow Sharders, fans, friends! If you have not read about this yet, I urge you to go over to Chaos' post and read about it. This kickstarter campaign, supported by Brandon, is attempting to give TWoK it's own cinematic stylings by creating a soundtrack for the book. As their own page says: This is not just some random group of people who have come together to do a fan-based project. Working with the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, musicians who have worked on Wonder Woman, and some of the composers themselves having worked on monumental films such as 'Fantastic Beasts' - this is something truly unique and truly special. There is currently only SIX days left before this project closes, and they are currently $48,000 short of their target of making this a reality - so I am writing this, as a fan, a backer, as someone who loves Brandon and the Cosmere as much as anyone here, I write this and ask you to pledge whatever you can - to join and support and make this project a reality!

  4. I would like to raise a note of caution when discussing fainlife- and it is because of Edgedancer in AU. Brandon will often edit and adapt elements from older novels, such as taking Decay from 'The Aether of Night' (it is suggested that an Aether is in the Worldhoppers collection in WoR) and turning him into Ruin for 'Mistborn' In Edgedancer, Lift meets Arclo the Dysian Aimian, member of the Sleepless and associate of Axies the Collector. Arclo refers to his 'Hordelings', with the specialisms they possess. Brandon, many years ago, wrote 'Star's End', a hard sci-fi unpublished novel that he is not fond of now, looking back! In this book, there are a race of aliens known simply as 'Climaxi's Horde', which have specialisms, both simple and very specific. To me, it seems clear that Brandon has recycled this idea, and that brings me back to the original point. I am not 100% sure of the canonic status of The Liar of Partinel at the moment, and while it does refer to fainlife within the text, I would probably (and personally) suggest that we treat the reference in AU as the only canonical reference for the moment!
  5. I would argue that K & N looking for talking tools is them hunting for Nightblood or Vasher, as the only talking item we have seen so far is our favourite talking sword
  6. Hoid "being named for a rock" references a previous alias - Topaz. This is also referenced in the Letter or the Second Letter (I forget which)
  7. We could easily argue that Feruchemy as the combined power of Ruin and Preservation is but an example of the power of Adonalsium? Perhaps Investiture on Yolen was different for different people/nations/races - that sDNA is a racial remnant from Yolen - we may see examples of Feruchemy, alongside Lightcasting and Aon based magics - who knows!
  8. Could Hoid be a possessor of Original Feruchemy? Could Hoid be one of the original creators of Feruchemy and Terris itself?
  9. Adonalsium was killed by the Weapon, so I don't think he really wanted the Shattering!
  10. Sorry, yes, my mistake!
  11. Not at all - as far as I am aware, there is no evidence that FotS or Threnody are in the Greater Rosharan System.
  12. Another point - apparently Braize, Ashyn and Roshar are the only Shard planets in the greater Rosharan System, but there are other planets with some sort of sentient life on...
  13. The other guy is called Baon, and he is from Taldain (I was one of the first to make this connection, and got it confirmed in a WoB in my copy of Steelheart)
  14. Hoid could easily visit to determine what is going on in Braize - we know that there are three planets within the Greater Rosharan System, including Braize and Ashyn, so it makes sense that Braize, with Odium being tied there, is the epitome of Hell for them. As for Yolen, it is too important a planet to be anything other than just Yolen, IMHO. As for being expelled from the Tranquiline Halls - it makes sense that humanity has a race memory, passed down through generations of being forced to leave an idyllic place due to the actions of powerful beings.
  15. At the Sheffield signing for Shadows of Self, I asked if there were pigs on Yolen, and Brandon said that yes, there are pigs on Yolen.
