  1. I know u didn't, kind of made an assumption that, with how many people are turned into screaming disembodied voices, it would have had to of been a broad canvas as opposed to individual hits.
  2. I don't think Odium would willingly Invest that much into the entire human population of Roshar, it would weaken him more. And we know he's kind of against Investing in a planet, he just got stuck on Roshar. We know it takes a significant amount of Investiture to create a CS and for Odium to have granted enough Investiture to every single being any Herald or Szeth killed seems pretty unlikely
  3. Ok, just wanna make sure I understand what ur saying. The heralds r haunted by the cognitive aspects of everyone/thing they've killed? And also, where does the Investiture come from that is creating cognitive aspects coming from? In Kelsiers case we know, but he was a full blown cognitive shadow. Most of the people Szeth killed weren't Invested at all. Unless constant exposure to Stormlight is enough, which I have no idea if it is. Solid theory tho, clearly well thought out.
  4. Did all 10 surges have a opposite on the voidbinding chart? Because of there's only 9 "orders" where do the other 2 surges go?
  5. Exactly. Any period post Lord Ruler, Mistborn and Misting r determined by bloodlines (or sDNA if u wanna be all technical) noble houses had more Mistborn because their bloodlines were more pure and all that jazz. That's exactly how it works. Or i guess i should've said anyone with Scadrian sDNA
  6. It's neither of those. If I remember right it was saying that everyone has the potential to be Mistborn but the snapping threshold is so high and the bloodlines too diluted, atleast in the current era, that it's virtually impossible to become Mistborn
  7. Just wanna point out, I know the WoB ur referring to, and it just says that's Endowment couldn't lose enough power from giving breaths that it would effect her much. This still leaves a whole slew of other ways to siphon off power. And, theoretically, she could change how much Investiture is in 1 breathe to the point that it did. Kinda semantics but that's like half off all responses in here lol
  8. Just want to say I've seen a WoB that says exactly what @MountainKing says, that the threshold for Snapping is what causes mistborn. It directly contradicts that one by @Calderis but idk which is more recent...
  9. Well she was still making use of those gemstones to surgebind, so she's was still putting a lot of stain on them really quickly. I'm assuming any large, quick withdraw of stormlight would cause a gemstone to crack
  10. Ok so I guess that kinda shuts my idea down without some crazy person logic. I wonder if lift could power any other magic systems though
  11. That's exactly what I said tho... I'm proposing that since each metal is a key to a different power, Lift would naturally be able to treat each metal as one. She breaks food down into Investiture. Food isn't Invested and has no realmatic properties, atleast no food I know of. Definitely not the food lift is eating. So if she can take something as mundane as food and turn it into fuel for surgebinding, I'm 100% sure she can do some incredibly wonky things with a magic system that uses ingestion as it's conduit.
  12. The only thing I could think is maybe she could power every metallic art with any one given allomantic metal. She basically transforms food into raw Investiture, and each metal is just a "key" to Harmonys Investiture. So I think she would probably break every metal into it's most basic/raw form of Investiture, which, like the mists, would power all allomantic powers. Every metal would be a skeleton key.
  13. Honestly that gap is pretty great imo. It gives enough time for everything on both sides to solidify for the most part. The KR will have decent numbers and so will the Voidbringers. Alliances will have fallen into place, people will have to unite themselves a little in that time before the real storm hits so we can read about it.
  14. One thing I wanna point out is that whatever method it was, it acts so similarly to hemalurgy that in-world characters would consider it the same thing. So it has to have ripped out a chunk of Jezrien, we just don't know what chunk that was. It could be Odiumlurgy (that's what I'm going with atleast) can only target one attribute which happened to be one that a CS needs to live. Or maybe whatever u hate when crafting the spike drives the Intent of it, so each spike needs to be made specifically and by someone passionate about the goal? Idk, I'm sure im of base but my point is Odiumlurgy steals an attribute of some sort in exact same manner as Hemalurgy, but if Brandon says he considers them 2 seperate systems, then there must be something that sets them apart. And since we've seen them produce the same effect and also seen that how they're used is the same (stabbing completely through someone) the only thing that can be different is how they're crafted, besides the obvious choice of metal.
  15. Also, can you even put Breathe into a hemalurgic spike? It's already Invested, so I wouldn't think you could, or atleast it would be difficult.
