  1. I don't believe that there is a trade paperback edition of Words of Radiance. I know there's a mass market, but I haven't seen a trade version. I could be wrong though.
  2. This image was the exclusive for the trade paperback edition of the Way of Kings. Pretty cool, huh?
  3. Trivia: Sanderson Edition

    What symbol does Elend use on his banners and have his soldiers wear?
  4. Trivia: Sanderson Edition

    He and Sixth tried to cross Patji at night, didn't they? I believe he was killed by a nightmaw, but that may just be a trick of the memory.
  5. Oathbringer Update #7

    The graphic novel actually pulled at least some of its dialogue from the book. Not all of it though, as far as I recall. I definitely am worried about future graphic novels, beyond the content of the original novel and the quality of dialogue we'll see there.
  6. Oathbringer Update #7

    Adolin threw it into one of the planters outside the window, if I recall correctly. What happens afterward we will have to wait and see.
  7. Bots...again?!!

    Rather, one bot. No system to keep out bots is perfect, so this will crop up now and again. Rest assured this is infinitely better than the short period of time where we were seeing up to ten bots an hour. The staff could barely keep up. In the future, if you or anyone else sees a post by a bot, there's no need to make a topic, just report the post (the little button next to the timestamp at the top of a post) and some member of the staff will take care of it promptly.
  8. Shard buttons are poorly mapped

    This is a known issue, I'm sure Eric will be along in a minute to explain specifics, but the images of the Radiant glyphs have something to do with it. I think the dimensions of the images are too large?
  9. The Evil on Threnody is...?

    Stay on topic here, downvotes are not relevant to the conversation at hand. I can see upvotes and downvotes and Firerust did not downvote Yata, so I would cease making unsubstantiated accusations. Feel free to continue discussing the topic, but the conversation on downvotes ends here.
  10. The November deadline is basically locked in. It could shift a small amount, but will not change drastically.
  11. Narrowing Down the Last Shards [AU]

    We actually don't know whether or not Ashyn has ever had a Shard. As of the "modern" cosmere it does not, but I asked Brandon once and he RAFO'd me, saying that he cannot reveal too much of the history of the Rosharan system without spoiling things for the Stormlight Archive. So unless he has said elsewhere that there was never a Shard on Ashyn (which is entirely possible, I often miss things), right now all we know is that there currently isn't a Shard there.
  12. Question about the Evil

    I've read Shadows for Silence several different times and actually wrote the article for the Evil on the Coppermind. As far as I am aware, there is no mention that the Evil came from the sky in the story itself or in any interview questions.
  13. Crafting the Bands of Mourning?

    It's pretty explicitly around three hundred years without atium. Mistborn: The Final Empire Chapter 33 I think it's worth noting though that in Shadows of Self, Wax actually finds himself within what is left of the Pits of Hathsin, with no atium in sight. Brandon's said on multiple occasion that both the Well of Ascension and the small wells within the Pits are no more in the modern era, so it does not seem that atium is currently being produced, at least in the same place or way.

    Small Words of Radiance spoiler
  15. The Ones Above

    I do want to point out a fact that I think has been overlooked quite often in discussions about the identity of the Ones Above. This is quote from a signed book, sourced here. This leads me to believe that the Ones Above may not be the monolithic group that they might appear. This doesn't mean that they are Rosharans, but at the very least they've been to Roshar and have either brought some Herdazian food or have a way to prepare it. I do agree that the technology appears Scadrian, but I wouldn't be surprised if there is a Rosharan or two on the crew.
