E. Do we know how much time has elapsed between Warbreaker and SA1?

As mentioned by Yata, there is a very small time-frame since it's after HoA but before AoL. From WoB, Warbreaker is "several hundred" years before Way of Kings. (The implied placement of Warbreaker should still be semi-accurate, even if Alloy got moved later). Additionally, Nightblood(Book) is meant to be the "exact book" before SA1, but closer to WB than to SA.

I was wondering if she has any similarities to a certain priest from Elantris and his arm :) probably a stretch though. 

Main reason I'd say probably not(outside of the more "self-contained" story reason) is that she's looking for Vasher, and I don't think he's gone to Sel before.

I have unfortunately been away from the 17th Shard —-I misplaced my password, like a numbskull—- but I am stupidly happy to hear Vivenna showed up in Oathbreaker. I found Warbreaker to be absolutely awesome! First Vasher, now Vivenna! W00t!

Nightblood command was Destroy evil , a simple two word command , I️ think Viviana blade is something like Protect the weak , seeing as how she was protecting the Alethi

If memory serves me correctly, the marks Azure's sword leaves on the people it cuts are really similar to the scaring Lift and Szeth received after Nightblood tried to suck them dry of investiture. To me this indicates Azure's sword is sucking investiture from the people it cuts into, though in a far less violent or potent maner as OG Nightblood. I'd be willing to accept that Azure's sword isn't a danger to its user, but it's definitely Nightblood Lite®.

Okay, first-sorry so late to the party that is this forum thread. Second-a thought on the wrapped cloak around Azure's arm: does she perhaps need a source of color in order to awaken her sword when unsheathed? Third, a question: Do you think Vivenna/Azure hears her sword's thoughts in her head like NB?

Your trademark registration of the term Nightblood Lite is duly noted.

I am curious if the cloth Azure wraps her arm with has color.  Could the new blade draw the color from the cloth first and this is why she uses the cloth?  Plenty of questions unanswered on this one.

I have been wondering, is it possible that Nightblood was stolen from Vasher somehow.  Then Vasher and Vivienna worked together to create another type IV sword that had the command sever life or breaths, (or some other command that would work against type IV weapons) that might be used to finally destroy Nightblood specifically?

Now that Susebron can talk, it’s probably easier to make swords like that.
