  1. Just wondering what that was since the stormfather said he will not be used a shardblade
  2. Isn't surgery very much a extension of biology a feminine art ? at first i thought this only applied to battlefield medics and surgeons but no one found it odd for Taravangian to be intrested in medicine apothecary's seem male and from how Lirin described the Kharbranthian council of surgeons they also sounded male ps i only read the way of kings so far if this is answered later please ignore
  3. I have just started reading oathbringer and it has only strengthened my belief in something i have been fearing since the last book i strongly suspect shallan has disassociate identity disorder aka multiple personality disorder from wikipedia " Dissociative identity disorder (DID), also known as multiple personality disorder, is a mental disorder characterized by at least two distinct and relatively enduring personality states. There is often trouble remembering certain events, beyond what would be explained by ordinary forgetfulness. These states alternately show in a person's behavior. Presentations, however, are variable. Associated conditions often include borderline personality disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, depression, substance misuse disorder, self-harm, or anxiety. The cause is believed to be due to childhood trauma. In about 90% of cases there is a history of abuse in childhood " "The symptoms of dissociative amnesia are subsumed under the DID diagnosis" from the wiki page of psychogenic amnesia " Psychogenic amnesia, also known as dissociative amnesia, is a memory disorder characterized by sudden retrograde episodic memory loss, said to occur for a period of time ranging from hours to years. More recently, "dissociative amnesia" has been defined as a dissociative disorder "characterized by retrospectively reported memory gaps. These gaps involve an inability to recall personal information, usually of a traumatic or stressful nature." i am not a psychologist and would be very interested if one happens to stumble over this post i just wanted to point out this thing and discuss possible implications it might have on the story ps: i am only about 16 chapters into oathbringer please no spoilers for further in the book
  4. So I know that Wit is a World Hopper and his name is Hoid but I would also like to propose that Wit is actually from Warbreaker and is one of the returned. I mean at the end up the book he uses colours and he seems to be immortal. And on top of this I'm going to say that Azure is also from Warbreaker due to the fact that she doesn't act like a regular person from Roshar and asks for human like dolls to be made, although we never get to see the affects. We also see that the sword that Sezth has is really nightblood and it drains the colours from his arm and the sword also likes to scream "DESTROY EVIL"... so anyone else have any thoughts on this?
  5. I love One Armed Herdazian Jokes, we may be short on time for One Armed Herdazian Jokes, Oathbringer will be out soon, and we can't know what happens in the book especially if the forshadowing is correct "Rafo" If you haven't. SO! Lets get them while we can. How do you get a One Armed Herdazian out of the Tree. Wave! Sadly, I'm not very inventive with Jokes SO! Lets hear yours!
  6. just finished WoR and saw kaladin turning his shardblade into a variety of weapons which made me wonder could you make a projectile shardweapon like a bow or a blowpipe obviously you can make it into a throwing knife but that dosn't really count
  7. why do darkeyed soldiers use spears instead of halberds ?

  11. I pronounce it like Sazed from mistborn just with a th at the end is that correct ?
  12. Hoid brought it up in one of shallan's flashbacks and he raised a good point how do they know what a hound is ? it cant be some extinct specie since dawntounge didn't survive the desolation's meaning the word was made for alethi
  13. 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.
  14. this is probably one of the pettiest questions ever asked on this forum but what is the evolutionary advantage of Thaylen eyebrows ? if you want to build a grounded world you must have explanations ready for nitpickers like me ps im only on page 200 of words of radiance please do not spoil anything later then that if the question is answered later please inform me
  15. So yeah. We've seen a bunch of Radiants use different weapons, from Shardforks to Shardblades to Shardspears. So why are all of the Shardweapons from the Recreance in blade form? It stands to reason they also would have had their weapons of choice. What is the reason that all of their Shards turned into blades, then? Is sword-form some kind of a basic spren form? Is it cultural (and why would there be such an overpowering cultural influence on swords opposed to other weapons, with no room for deviation?) Did the spren revert to sword-form when the bond was broken?
  16. So.... spoiler alert..... if Dalinar has bonded with the stormfather, and the stormfather is who infuses gems with light, and if Dalinar can control his new spren enough, can he change the way highstorms interact with the world? Ex. frequency, strength etc the point I am trying to get to is if he can learn to exert a certain level of control through his nahel bond he can essentially control the amount of stormlight given (which would control one of the most valuable things on roshar, currency) he could change and possibly crash the economy based on his will alone. also does this mean that he can hold out long enough that all surgebinders starve and go powerless? Same with shardplate? Does he get an unlimited amount of stormlight directly from his spren? Does he have unlimited bondsmithing potential while destroying the economy and making all magical forms of attack and defense (besides shardblades) useless? No radiant police force to stop him after they run out of stormlight.... It is a very good thing that Dalinar is a level headed, well rounded, honorable man.
  17. So I was re-watching Back to the Future, as one does, and thinking about what a disappointment it was that we don't have widespread hoverboard use even though we should've years ago and I realized what someone needs to do is go to Roshar and convince either artifabrians or windrunners to create hoverboards since artifabrians could use reversers to make the hoverboard float and windrunners could half lash a board to the sky in order to make it weightless. The only problem would be getting the lashed board to move. But with a fabrial, you could make a controller of sorts that you can move around to make the hoverboard do the opposite.
  18. I am looking for some feedback on my Surgebinding chart that has been updated for Oathbringer. I am sure many of you saw Connections that I missed. I have included an Excel doc, a PDF doc, and picture for your viewing pleasure. And here we go: Stormlight.pdf Stormlight.xlsx
  19. This completely insane theory occurred to me when I was watching the allomantic metals chart on the coppermind after reading this thread. So my theorie is this: there are actually 16 surges and each knight radiant gets three surges. So I think there are sixteen surges because there are sixteen shards of adonalsium, that alone is not enough evidence. But, there are sixty-four allomantic metals which divided by four gives us the modern metals, the god metals and two more sets of metals( the only MB books I read are the first three and like three chapters of wax and wayne, but I suspect that one of these sets is made off of alloys of the metal that gave the first mistborns their powers) now if you take the modern metals you can divide them into four groups of four metals: the physical the mental(cognitive), the enhancement (I believe spiritual realm because it deals with power?) and the temporal ( I feel like time exists in a different way in the Cosmere. In earth time doesn't really exist in the sense that allows one to time travel, because what happened a long time ago isn't happening anymore. But in the Cosmere this isn't true, the things that happened a long time ago are still happening somewhen. This is why the temporal metals exist even though there is no temporal realm). Each quadrant has four types of metal, again we divide four by four giving us: the pushing metals, the pulling metals, the external metals and the internal metals. As I have said above this information alone is not enough, this could be scadrial's magic system, however one must keep in mind that there are sixteen shards of Adonalsium(which can also be made into groups of four: spiritual, physical, temporal and cognitive which can be further divided by four etc.etc.). And preservation refers to 16 as the number humankind could never forget. Now, you may have noticed that the Cosmere is somewhat obsessed with the number 16 and therefore 4 and 2 (4×4=16 and 2×2×2×2=16 and whatnot). Now, if you try to break down the number 10 (I think it's called making it into factors or something but I didn't learn maths in English so I don't know), you get 5×2. I still think there were 10 orders of knights radiant and all of the other 10s. Another thing that makes me believe there are actually sixteen surges is that the surges weren't listed by a sliver. In HoA harmony states that the lord ruler gained a lot of knowledge ( regarding investiture and its uses) when he ascended, and he was the one that made the metals chart. I don't know what the heralds are but I don't think they have as much investiture as a sliver, has khriss states in the scadrial essay that scadrial is the planet where it is relatively easier for regular people to come into contact with vast amounts of investiture and the heralds were once regular people (I think it's in one of the first chapters of WoK). This is where @glamdring804 's theory comes in. I believe we have seen opposing surges, however they are seperate surges. I also think that knights radiant get three surges one set of external/internal surges and an extra. I'm not sure if the surges can be accounted for has primery, secondary and tertiary in the sense that one is more powerful than the others. Another one of the reasons I also think that the kr get three surges is because the heralds have three attributes. When they became the ten fools their main attribute was corrupted. I think they still have their main attributes buried somewhere because darkness doesn't do anything to lift (after he admits he has failed) because let's face it, lift committed many (minor) crimes, judgement would drive darkness to at least fine lift or something, but justice acknowledges that these (minor)crimes were committed for a good cause. And the corrupted attribute is almost opposite to the main attribute. So, I will now give you my opinion on the surges individually and how they should be organized. I think they were listed incorrectly due to vorinistic bias. -Adhesion- "The surge of pressure and vaccum" I'm pretty sure pressure and vaccum aren't the same thing in fact they are opposites. When something is under pressure its being pushed outward trying to expand and uncompress, while something that is in vaccum is being pulled inward trying to fill the void. I think that this surge was listed incorrectly. And windrunners clearly only use vaccum when they use a full lashing. I have no idea what the surge of pressure would do. Maybe OB will shed some light on this topic. -Gravitation- "The surge of gravity" more like the surges of gravity. Basic lashings could be pushing and the reverse lashings could be pulling because they give objects a gravitational pull( or it might be the other way around I don't know). -Division- "The surge of destruction and decay" I think that this is also two surges in one. Decay and destruction aren't the same thing. Decay happens slowly( wherever this one is in the "surges chart" its where ruin should be listed under in the "shards chart"), whereas destruction is more immediate and brutal. I think that decay is the internal surge and desctrution the external one. I also think that these are temporal surges has something can only decay, heal and grow in time; destruction doesn't take that much time but its clearly external to decay. -Abrasion- "The surge of friction" This is only one surge. I think this is one of the physical surges. And its the edgedancer's "extra", well its not really an extra but I think I already said that. -Progression- "The surge of growth and healing, or regrowth" So I believe this are two different surges and that they are the edgedancers main surges. -Illumination- "The surge of light, sound, and various waveforms" So, this is only one surge, its the lightweavers main surge, and its the one that the truthwatchers get for having its opposing surge. In WoR we learn that illumination's internal surge enables someone to witness, in some way, things that are happening or maybe that have already happened or will happen. @Glamdring804 said I at first thought this was related to Shallan's mnemonic ability, something all Lightweavers are known to have. However, sprocket44 on Reddit pointed out that this might actually be another application of Illumination. Specifically, it seems to be similar to how Renarin, a Truthwatcher, "sees" things. I think this is another surge entirely and I'll just call it the "truthwatching surge" for now ( if you come up with any name suggestions for the surges that have no names please tell me, because "the surge used for reverse lashings" doesn't quite roll off the tongue) -Transformation- "The surge of soulcasting" This is only one surge, i think it may be cognitive. -Transportation- "The surge of motion and realmatic transition" I think that this is two surges in one.Motion and realmatic transition ( the real transportation surge I think ). The fact that motion and realmatic transition were assumed to be one surge means that elsecallers are the only order of kr that can use motion or realmatic transition, because they are not on the same quadrant on the "surges chart". -Cohesion- "The surge of strong axial interconnection" This is only one surge and its opposite is clearly "the surge of strong axial interconnections". In fact that they are not considered one surge means there is no order of kr that has them as a main surge. -Tension- "The surge of strong axial interconnection" This is just one surge, and its opposite is cohesion what this surge does I have no idea. This is how I think the surges should be organized ("surges chart"), they are 16: -the surge used for reverse lashings- the spiritual external pushing surge. -Vaccum- the spiritual internal pulling surge. -The surge used for basic lashings- the spiritual external pushing surge. -Pressure- the spiritual internal pushing surge. -Healing- the tempuraal internal pushing or pulling surge. -Growth- the temporal external pushing or pulling surge (whichever is healing's, this means the if healing is the pushing surge then growth is the pushing surge but, if healing is the pulling surge then growth is the pulling surge) -Decay- the temporal internal pushing or pulling surge -Destruction- the temporal external pushing or pulling surge (whichever is decay's) -Illumination- the cognitive external pushing or pulling surge -"Truthwatching surge"- the cognitive internal pushing or pulling surge (whichever is illumination's) -Transformation- the cognitive external pushing or pulling surge. -Transportation- the cognitive internal pushing or pulling surge (whichever is transformation) -Coheson- the physical internal pushing or pulling surge -Motion- the physical external pushing or pulling surge (whichever is cohesion's) -Tension- the physical internal pushing or pulling surge -Abrasion- the physical external pushing or pulling surges (whichever is tension's). This is the kr orders surges (the orders that we know): -order name- External surge/internal surge--extra surge -Windrunners- Reverse lashing surge/vaccum--basic lashing surge. -Lightweavers- Illumination/"truthwatching" surge-- transformation -Elsecallers- Transportation/transformation--motion -Edgedancers- Growth/healing--abrasion. -Truthwatchers- "Truthwatching surge"/illumination -- ???? So, feel free to shoot my theory to the ground. And if you agree with me then look for more 16 in the Cosmere.
  20. Happy Oathbringer day, Lets not ruin anyone elses by spoiling the book for the people that may not read as quickly as you, or that may not be as fortunate to have obtained the book on the first day. I love you all my Bridge 4 Bretheren. Happy Reading.
  21. To preface, part of this theory is predicted on another on of my theories that stone can hold investiture. You can see more information here, but it is on the Oathbringer spoiler board so be properly forewarned before following the link, Oathbringer spoilers inside. So I think, assuming that isn't incorrect, that Cultivation is similar to Autonomy in that her investiture is tied to sunlight. First off, it just makes sense thematically. Cultivation is usually tied to farming and the growth of plants, and photosynthesis and sunlight is central to this process. Going into actual evidence though, I've got a few things I want to present. The first is the most obvious. I'm fairly sure it's a general consensus that Dalinar's vision at the end of WoR is from Cultivation. The beginning is in darkness, the end of the description is heavily based in sensations of warmth and light. Next, and I went into this a little bit with my other thread, we have Tien and his rocks, and how they always cheer up Kaladin. It think that Tien had a naturally close connection to Cultivation and was able to somehow find rocks that we're able to store her investiture in it. I won't provide the examples of the rocks cheering Kaladin up, but instead, the specific quote where Tien mentions the light changing the rocks color and illuminating strata. I think it's very like Brandon to hide the truth in both a flippant comment and the mouth of a babe. Finally, and I think this the strongest evidence, we come to Szeth at Urithuru. In Dalinar's vision in WoK, the radiant mentions that fighting hurts the soul, or at least that's the assumption I draw from the passage. This brings me to Szeth, where we see a clear demonstration of the damage over the course of the books. This brings us to Urithuru. Now while it is only one line, I think it is a fair conjecture to assume that the reason the damage recedes in the sunlight is because if cultivations influence in the context of other clues. Any thoughts?
  22. I wanted to put onto paper screen a few thoughts that have been rolling around my head, mostly about the different beliefs put forth by Szeth in Stone Shamanism, but also reinforced by how Listeners treat their dead. I want to bring up some of the relevant source material first. Szeth, WoK The Shin in WoK I think with this in mind, we can at least make some kind of supposition that stone can be analogous to metal or gemstones in some way. I'm not sure I'm entirely in the "Odium is invested in stone" camp yet, but I think that at least stone can capture spiritual connection. We have a couple pieces of evidence for this. First off, I want to point out a section from Szeth above. "His soul would be given to the stones upon his death." There's another piece of evidence from WoR. He states that he is bound to an Oathstone. Up until very recently, I have been under the impression that Szeth does what he does from personal honor, but we don't know much about Stone Shamanism. I believe that his soul was literally bound to his Oathstone. There's this segment from Nalan post the battle of Narak This implies that if there was a bond made between him and an Oathstone, it would have been broken by his death. (I don't know how much of this would be different with the updates, I've got the originals.) Without Nalan's intervention, I assume whatever bond they might have placed between him and the stone would have trapped his soul in the stone for eternity instead of allowing him to move on to the spiritual realm. I think a similar effect manifests across Roshar, which is why it is profane to walk on stone. It's also why the Listeners want their dead to be left to the stones. I don't have enough information to conjecture why it might be beneficial to them or why they might have been led to think so, but the high concentration of invested souls in the souls of the stones outside of Shinovar and Urithiru can explain why it is cursed. It also explains Alethi death rites. Soulcasting for the lighteyes. Literally using magic to remove the body and transform it, casting the soul into something else. Burning for the darkeyes, which is just as fitting. When you pray to the almighty, you burn a prayer. In order to prevent your soul from being invested in the stones, you need to soulcast it or burn it. I also think that Tien has a sense for these sorts of things, and that not all invested stone is necessarily negative. Kaladin repeatedly is cheered up by the stones that Tien gives him. There's been a buzz around about the strata being mentioned, and Tien is one of those to mention strata. Ok, so besides the immediate effects of Kaladin feeling better, I want to point out Hesina saying it's magic and a spren Nalan and Szeth mentioning the spren of the stones, and then also Tien mentioning the Light making the rock change. Edit: I found another piece of text, specifically pertaining to parshendi death Rites, to support the theory.
  23. Hey guys, so I'm not sure if this is the kind of content you want to see, but I thought it would be fun! You see, I'm not smart enough to contribute to the amazing fan theories, so this is my contribution (; Anyways, so if you're not familiar with the Myer Briggs Type Indicator, it's basically a set of 16 personality types that everyone falls under. (take the test, it's fun) I decided I would try to assign these traits to the Stormlight characters as best I could. If you are familiar (or lowkey obsessed) with MBTI, I hope you can relate with this! Here goes: Kaladin - ISFJ, The Defender. First off, I know the cover image for ISFJ is a smiling, kind woman and that is the exact opposite image that we associate with our boy Kal. But, to quote the article, "Though sensitive, Defenders have excellent analytical abilities; though reserved, they have well-developed people skills and robust social relationships; and though they are generally a conservative type, Defenders are often receptive to change and new ideas." That seems pretty accurate. To break down the different letters, the I stands for Introverted vs Extroverted. We can all agree that Kal is Introverted. S stands for Sensory or obServant vs intuitive. I think as a surgeon, Kal is pretty Sensory. F stands for Feeling vs Thinking, meaning he processes most of his information through emotion. I'd say Kal is a pretty hotheaded guy who doesn't really think before he acts. J means Judging over Perceiving. He is logical and judges situations without the bias of perception. Shallan - ISFP, The Adventurer. I think this is a perfect match. At first I was tempted to say INTP, the Logician, but I think Shallan is more SF than NT. As an artist, she is very Sensory, and as Shallan, she is more of a Feeling person than a Thinking person. She uses the Thinking side of her personality a lot, but her emotions have so much control over her and so much say in her decision-making. As the article says, "Adventurers enjoy upsetting traditional expectations with experiments in beauty and behavior – chances are, they’ve expressed more than once the phrase 'Don’t box me in!'" Shallan most definitely hates being boxed in and trapped, due to her childhood experiences. Another spot-on quote says, "When faced with criticism, it can be a challenge for people with this type to step away from the moment long enough to not get caught up in the heat of the moment." Passionate insult battles, anyone? Adolin - ESFJ, The Consul. I find it hilarious that Adolin and Kaladin are almost identical in personality type, with only the E/I switched. Adolin is the Consul, most definitely. The article says that "Discussing scientific theories or debating European politics isn’t likely to capture Consuls’ interest for too long. Consuls are more concerned with fashion and their appearance, their social status and the standings of other people." That rings a bell to me. We can see that Adolin is a Feeling character rather than a Thinking character. However, he is a Judging character, because he has the innate ability to see people without bias. (Amaram, Sadeas, Kaladin, his dad) Renarin - ISTJ, The Logistician. Honestly, I don't really know Renarin's character too well, so this is a ballpark guess. I am positive that Renarin is Introverted, and I am not sure about the Sensory, but it seems right to me. He is very practical, so I can see him being Sensory. He is definitely a Thinking character, but we don't really know if he's Judging or Perceiving. For now, however, I think Judging is a good guess. Dalinar - ENFJ, The Protagonist. Dalinar is a natural born leader and is amazing at handling people. These traits put him as the Protagonist. "Protagonists radiate authenticity, concern and altruism, unafraid to stand up and speak when they feel something needs to be said... Protagonists easily see people’s motivations and seemingly disconnected events, and are able to bring these ideas together and communicate them as a common goal with an eloquence that is nothing short of mesmerizing." Honestly, the accuracy of this is astounding and a bit creepy. I think Dalinar is the Protagonist poster child. Also, this little quote here, "The interest Protagonists have in others is genuine, almost to a fault – when they believe in someone, they can become too involved in the other person’s problems, and place too much trust in them." Does that sound like a certain Sadeas vs Dalinar situation to you? Bonus note - because parents tend to pass on portions of their personality traits to their kids, we can guess that Shshshsh, Dalinar's mystery wife, is IST-. We can guess that she's IST because Renarin got the I and the T from somewhere and both Adolin and Renarin have an S that didn't come from Dalinar. We don't really know the J/P, because it seems Dalinar passed the J to both Adolin and Renarin. She could be either. Jasnah - ENTJ, The Commander. Jasnah is purely the Commander. The only thing that might be up for debate is the E vs the I, but I think she is more Extroverted than Introverted. She is definitely a Thinking and Judging type, because of her scholarly nature. I think she is iNtuitive over Sensory, but I think we might not know her well enough to discern that. For now, however, I'm sticking with ENTJ. The funny thing is, Shallan is the exact opposite of her, being ISFP, yet the way they interact with others is strikingly similar. Navani - INTP, The Logician. The tagline for the Logician is "Innovative inventors with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge." To me, this describes Navani perfectly. She is the amazingly smart scientist, the adorable nerd and the creative inventor. Navani is an introverted type, but she is so strong around people that we only ever see that side of her around Dalinar. She is an NT, like Jasnah, but she processes information through Perception rather than Judging. This sounds surprising since she is a scientist, but she is a creative and an inventor rather than a scholar. Bonus note - with the info that we have about Jasnah and Navani, we can guess that Gavilar was an E--J. Knowing the little that we know about Gavilar, we can assume he is a Protagonist, like Dalinar. Hoid as Wit - ENTP, the Debater. Hoid is honestly so hard to figure out. This is not my most confident guess, so if you have a better guess please let me know! (Keep in mind we're talking about Hoid as Wit) Wit is definitely Extroverted, moving through the crowds with ease and making fun of talking to people with confidence. "Debaters don’t [play devil's advocate] because they are trying to achieve some deeper purpose or strategic goal, but for the simple reason that it’s fun. No one loves the process of mental sparring more than Debaters, as it gives them a chance to exercise their effortlessly quick wit, broad accumulated knowledge base, and capacity for connecting disparate ideas to prove their points." This sounds like Wit to me. His iNtuitiveness allows him to create beautiful stories that apply to other people's specific situations, while his Perception allows him to poke fun at others with scary accuracy. Because he is a Thinking type, he is analytical and has a pretty good reign on his emotions. Bonus! Syl - ENFP, The Campaigner - Syl is ENFP all the way. She's got the childlike wonder and Perception and the iNtuitiveness that guides her decisions as honorspren in what Feels wrong and right. She is almost the opposite of Kaladin, yet their ideals are very similar. I believe this is what attracted her to Kaladin. Pattern - INTP, The Logician. Pattern, our adorable, miniscule scholar! He is the same Personality type as Navani, INTP. We see his Perception in how he views the world, and his iNtuitiveness and Thought through how he learns and applies those worldviews. He is similar to Shallan, but she is an SF and he is an NT. She an artist in her core, but she loves scholarship, and that is what drew Pattern to her. That's it for now! I hope it was understandable to those who have no clue what the MBTI types are :? I tried to do as many characters as I could, but if you want me to expand on this one let me know what characters to do! Also, if you would like to suggest a change in one I did, feel free-- I'd love to hear your opinions on this! Also, if you have any suggestions for Wit's personality that would be awesome (; Let me know your personality type! I'm INFP, and I'd love to chat with y'all about it. Here's the website where I got all my info, and be sure to take the test! (It's free, fun, and it will tell you things about yourself that are creepily accurate) I may do one for Mistborn!
