  1. Welcome the Knights of the Cosmere! The KotC are a roleplaying universe which takes place in a PM. Within, are two factions: The Surgefinders, and The Vindicators. In order to join, you must create a character profile and post it here, and you will be added into the PM The Surgefinders are about honour and protecting the universe. They are all about preserving lives, and helping others. They are currently based at Urithiru, and are fighting against evil. The Vindicators are also about protecting, but their methods may not be so honourable, including spending lives if they have to. They have a very direct focus and are willing to sacrifice anything to get what is needed. They were originally started by two members of the Surgefinders turning traitor. (this is where all you evil writers get to have fun) The factions are all in the same RP PM, and are on opposite sides. When you join, you will start as a new recruit to the chosen faction. Alternatively, you can start as neutral and eventually join one if you want to. If/When you would like to join one of these factions, PM @Sami for the Vindicators, and @Tesh for the Surgefinders. Your character profile (CP) must specify your abilities (try not to be too OP ), your alignment (Surgefinder, Vindicator, Neutral), and a bit of your background. Your character is also expected to be a worldhopper. You may also have a side character if you want to. Also in your post make sure you mention specifically that you wish to join the KotC. MEMBERS The Surgefinders The Vindicators Neutral/Unknown News Note: If you no longer want to be part of the KotC, PM @Tesh so that she can withdraw you from the member's list Recap of The Knights of the Cosmere Role Play #1: Okay, that's about it. @Sami is responsible for most of this, and I just tweaked it here and there. So... yah! May Honor be with you, Teshani Kholin (And yes, I know that Honor is splintered. it's just an expression. ... I guess...)
  2. This kind of thing has been going around.. and I am just curious about what the status is in the community. Also, any relationship is allowed. (Romantic, friendly, familial, etc.) Mine is personally Sarene and Raoden.
  3. I've been really enjoying looking for Cosmere-related clues as I read through Brandon's work, and I thought of a question. When Hoid visits a world, how long does he generally stay there before moving on? He appears in all 3 books from Mistborn Era 1, but was he there during all that time or did he leave and come back? He is/was also the King's Wit in Alethkar, the Imperial Fool of the Rose Empire, and a storyteller in Hallandren, positions that I assume took some time to get into. I'm not sure if there is any mention of these kinds of details in the books themselves (I haven't read them all yet) or if Brandon has revealed anything while answering questions. What do you all think? Theories are welcome, but please don't spoil stuff for me. So far I've read Elantris, Hope of Elantris, Emperor's Soul, Warbreaker, Mistborn Era 1, Alloy of Law and Way of Kings.
  4. From the album Logos

    The first try at the smite logo. this one is the arcanium/17th shard theme.
  5. I finally joined the 17th Shard!!! I've read both the Mistborn trilogies, the three Stormlight Archives, Warbreaker, and Arcanum Unbounded. Outside of the Cosmere, I've read the Reckoners and Legion. I can't wait for when he decides to write Warbreaker 2, but it sadly doesn't look like its going to be anytime soon.
  6. I Made myself a cosmere bookmark
  7. I asked some questions here: But as I figured, some fans other than Brandon himself may know some of the answers, I decided to post it here as well. Here is my post almost without change. I know most of this stuff would be RAFOed by Brandon if he were asked (which is quite logical); so, I wanted to hear about your guesses and points that I've certainly missed: " We have this phrase as a fact in the Coppermind: A: ...the main story of the cosmere occurs in a compact dwarf galaxy, meaning it has many fewer stars and systems than our galaxy. And this one: B: There are ten primary planets in the cosmere, sometimes called Shardworlds, So here's the questions: 1-Is the Cosmere that dwarf galaxy (with 10 primary planets and stuff) or the universe (its main story happen in A dwarf galaxy? and my other questions: 2-Surely there's much difference between the whole universe and one galaxy. There are at least an estimated 200 billion number of galaxies in our own universe. Is this universe (which is or contains Cosmere) the same as ours? Could Adonalsium be the craft of some ultimately advanced 3-Is Adonalsium related to other galaxies somehow? Does the God who is believed and is not one of the Shards have anything to do with them? Is the God other than Adonalsium have infinite powers too? 4-Did Adonalsium create all galaxies and the whole universe or just the first humans and some planets at least? If there are two creators with infinite power, it might be that none of them created all galaxies, cause I doubt a same universe can have two omnipotent creators. 5-If Adonalsium created human beings, do other races (non-humanoid, non-anthropomorphic ones) exist in the Cosmere? 6-Is Adonalsium really a God (like there's one omnipotent God in Christianity, Islam and Judaism) who created humankind or it's a representation of some ultimately evolved species and intelligence? I mean something like the First-Born that exist in A.C.Clarke's Space Odyssey series, ultimately-evolved species which gained non-corporeal forms over millions of years; or the Catalyst in Mass Effect video game, an AI of a billion years old." P.S. This was what I intended to ask Brandon with some slight changes and omitting unnecessary parts. I would be glad to know your comments on it (your guesses will also be appreciated). Sorry if some of these seem irrelevant questions. But I was curious about all these stuff and itched to ask it somewhere!
  8. So has anyone been able to identify any of Mraize's "curiosities" yet? I don't believe that they're not significant, but we may not have seen some of them yet. I'll include the passage here for reference: Any thoughts?
  9. Hey all, after getting through White Sand vol 2 and seeing our favorite worldhopper (or what we think is him anyway) pop up again, I was wondering if people have created a rough timeline of when Hoid has visited the worlds throughout the Cosmere. I suppose this would be the same order as the worlds appear in Cosmere chronology, but then again, maybe not. So from reading the books, newsletters, WoB, etc, has anybody pieces together a timeline for Hoid's travels?
  10. I have been trawling through rhe WoBs and have come across this one: https://www.theoryland.com/intvmain.php?i=1160#100 and my mind was pretty much blown. Aluminium gnats can protect themselves against withering by shades on Threnody by burning their metal! Doesn't it also mean that they'd be able to nullify, say, Lashings used on them? Resist being soulcast by an enemy surge/void-binder in a fight? Avoid Vasher's "let's give them Breaths and incapacitate them for the crucial moment" ploy? Etc, etc. Now, if true, this would almost make Allomantic Aluminium a reasonable ability, once the metal itself becomes cheaper. Particularly, if Sanderson also decides to throw in "burning away impurities", which he has been vascillating on, as far as I could determine.
  11. I just finished re-reading Elantris and I have so many questions. I think I need to write Cosmere stuff on my walls like T. Anyway, ATI is an aon? ATI like OUR Ati? Was Ati originally from Sel? Who is Jaddeth really? Is he the person who took up a shard? Is he Ambition? Because Hrathen keeps saying that he rewards the ambitious. Are the Dakhor somehow hemalurgically pierced? Are the bones bonded with adamantium or something? What is Lukel's name aon? The God trapped in the land sounds much like Ruin trapped in the well. Coincidence?
  12. OK so for most of Words of Radiance We see things like this cool symbol whenever Shallan has a PoV chapter: Whenever we get one of her flashbacks we see something like this: With inverted colors. However... It wasn't always like this. Below is Shallan's last PoV chapter (chapter 7) Look familiar? Yes. Look at the Prologue, which features Jasnah: It has the same picture. Why did Shallan's picture change from a view of Shadesmar (Better question: it's shadesmar, right?) to a swirling patten? And I know what some of you may be thinking, but Pattern is described as a set of lines - not curves (I am 87.32% sure). So I don't think that its Pattern. Did it have something to do with the events of Chapter 7? Possibly. In this chapter, Shallan lightweaved (not for the first time, though, right?). She also soulcast an ENTIRE ship into water (once again, not for the first time, right?). You guys are smarter than me and maybe even discussed this already. What are your theories?
  13. I recently fell under a misconception. I was told that there was a running RP on the 17th Shard. I, unfortunately, mistook the statement as meaning there was a standardized RPG game complete with GMs and a running community. I was corrected and ended up in a very long conversation with a friend of mine about what would be required for an adequate, or preferably amazing, RPG. So, I have created this thread with the hope of finding how many people would enjoy such a game. Current plans: In-depth (and specialized) character sheets that gauge state of mind, how broken the character is, (snapping, insanity, Etc.) and how aligned they are with their ideals and goals. Online compatibility. (You do not need to be in the same room to play) Worldhoppers that appear randomly through quests and scenarios. Pros and cons to each magic system. Scenarios that adhere to canon. Artwork. And as much extra as we can churn out together. What we will need: Interest; we can't make this unless people actually want to play. Please contact me or simply post here with ideas, questions, suggestions, and anything else related. Game-Masters; People who are quick-witted and enjoy messing with people will probably enjoy this position in the game. You do not need to only GM the games, but having people willing to would be greatly appreciated. Fan-art; The game can still function without art, but where is the fun in that? Feel free to contact me (Discord: ArmyOfHellium) or @Vashakh Sadeas (Discord by same name). Thank you very much, and we will enjoy any interest or worries expressed. Edit: We now have a Discord channel for the yet unnamed Cosmere RPG is up and running: https://discord.gg/qfCHEFf
  14. New Here, but I LOOOOOOVE me some Sanderson!! Read everything in the Cosmere and hungry for more!! Looking forward to some mind bending conversations about some amazing books!
  15. Just for fun, if Shadesmar were Shadesmart, what kind of things do you think they'd sell? And even better, what kind of advertisements and sales would they run? Tuesday Two-For-One Shardblades. Get 'em while they're hot! Rent-An-Elsecaller for all your transportation needs.
  16. this is a decoration on the wall where I work! (it uploaded sideways.) I feel like I'm living in the Shattered Plains! I know who the voidbringers, according to Jasnah, are here! And does anyone know how to rotate uploaded photos???
  17. So in my family we love the game Codenames, and I got to thinking how fun it would be to play a Brandon Sanderson themed version. And then it occurred to me, why not adapt it to play on the forums? Should be easy enough, so let’s take a crack at it, yeah? As for the nitty gritty: I’ve never played Codenames, what is it? Okay, I get how to play, but how are we going to Sanderson-ize it? Will there be spoilers for any of Brandon's books? Short Answer: Very Possibly. Play at your own risk! Long Answer: the codenames used in each game will not contain any spoilers for any of the books. However, they will be linked to their respective coppermind wiki entries, which can contain spoilers for Brandon's books. Also, I can't guarantee that the clues that the spymasters give and/or the teams' discussions won't contain spoilers. Again, Play at your own risk! I will try to post at the start of each game which of Brandon's books the codenames are drawn from for that game, so you can know if you need to avoid a particular game. How are we going to make this work on the forum? What if I want to take a turn being a Spymaster? EDIT 2/5/2018: I have updated this post with the rules we have settled on after a couple of games. So far everything seems to be working smoothly, and people seem to be enjoying it. So if you'd like to play, just reply to this thread and say so! Also, I have edited the next post to include quick links to the first post of each of the games played so far, and I will continue to keep the list updated as time goes on. Feel free to skim over any previous games if you wish to see how they played out, or jump straight to the first post of the current game. For posterities' sake, this spoiler box contains the rest of the text from the original post:
  18. Howdy everyone! I have read all of Brandon Sanderson's books, and have even browsed the forums here from time to time, but was waiting till I finished Oathbringer (via audiobook) to create an account. I'm looking forward to discussing some theories, but I have some questions: Does anyone have tips on the best way to use the search function? I would love to cut straight to some good threads about certain topics I am interested in, but it seems like when I search for key words, there are a lot of non-relevant threads to wade through. Recommendations would be appreciated! Topics I am interested in checking out: Theories on Adonalsium & the Shattering Locations of the known Shards Locations of the Heralds in SA Hoid/Wit Stormfather's siblings The Unmade Zahel/Vasher
  19. When did the Cosmere decal become official? Will they get allomantic metal decals back in stock? I'd love to have everything shipped at once. Can you put the decals on a car rear window and have them last?
  20. From the album Cosmeme & Crossmere

    It’s the year of the dog! I have no reason not to draw TenSoon =) Also, modern AU Hoid & Kelsier eating noodles. This is actually from a larger piece I haven’t finished yet. I’ll be working hard on that during the following weeks. See you later!
  21. Hi friends! So I have a friend that lived in Germany for a few years and loves it. For his birthday I wanted to get him the cosmere books in german....only problem is ...I don't read german so I'm not sure which books are which. Anyone mind helping me out by translating which books are which so I can order them =) The ones I want to get are Mistborn Trilogy Stormlight Archive Elantris Warbreaker
  22. Hi. I've read The Mistborn Trilogy, Elantris, and the first 2 in the Stormlight Archive only to now discover they all take place in the Cosmere and there is even some sort of suggested reading order. I have them all sorted up to #10, Wards of Radiance. And according to Book Catalogue (my book sorting App) Oathbringer is #15. So what is # 11, 12, 13, and 14? I would think The Bands of Mourning, Shadows of Self, and Edgedancer are 3 of 4...but what novella am I missing? Oh and I do own Arcanum Unbounded. Thanks and I look forward to digesting this site!!!
  23. cosmere

    Potential spoilers for anything related to the cosmere. These are just my personal theories. I want to know your theories on this subject and any possible info I got wrong or missed.
  24. Does anyone else dream of Roshar (or other Cosmere worlds at night?!) It's been a week that i finished Oathbringer and still dream of Roshar at night (maybe 3 or 4 separate dreams each night!) Like last night I was once Kaladin, Then i was myself listening to Cephandrius talking about his memories and chronology of Cosmere from a billion years ago! And like every other fantasy book, I feel i miss it and a bit... um, sad maybe?! Am i going crazy or these are visions of the Almighty?! Like to know if anyone share the same feelings.
  25. I don't highlight my books. I love keeping them pristine and new looking, but I'm thinking of getting spare copies to mark up when I make Connections, develop theories, or see a Worldhopper! Do you highlight/make notes in your Cosmere books? How do you go about it? Do you color code things or write notes? Like red for Ruin, red and gold for Odium, green for Cultivation, white for Preservation, etc? Looking for ideas and advice!
