Shardcast: Emerald City Comic Con Words of Brandon


This week we get more focused and actually discuss Emerald City Comic Con Words of Brandon. We discuss sand, the Fused, and one fateful bet Jebus made and Brandon crushed his dreams in dramatic fashion. We also see someone's hatred of France. We do get into analysis of some things from the Orem signing this month, too.

I'm Eric (Chaos) who doesn't know how to pronounce Pacific Northwest things despite being from there. We have Ian (WeiryWriter) who is back in the Stormfather's good graces. We have Ben (Overlord Jebus) who says American water is weird. Lastly, we have Matt (Comatose), who is actually French. 

We also end on an epic Who's That Cosmere Character, and I feel very good about myself. Want to send in one? Email it to [email protected]

Who's That Cosmere Character: 01:32:15

 

Oh, and if you're wondering what Jebus's bet was, here it is: https://wob.coppermind.net/events/324/#e9302 Listen to it so you can hear Jebus's soul get crushed.

We know Felt tried to go to the Nightwatcher. The question I have about him is did he go to Roshar intending to visit her or was it something he decided to try after he got there?

Great episode!

Re: Edglium Discussion 

God Metals are just the physical form of a Shard's investiture. All physical investiture is metal. Breaths are Endowment's investiture in the physical realm in a vapor form, just like the Mists are Preservastion's investiture in the same state. Lerasium would be the product of something condensing and freezing* the Mists. So Edglium would just be frozen condensed breaths.


*I doubt that the phase changing processes of physical investiture are governed by pressure and temperature.


The returned are cognitive shadows stapled back to their own dead body with a splinter of Endowment. That stapeling, and therefore splintering, takes place on the Spiritual Realm, and so is a bad place to look for an analogy to what physically possessing / using Edglium should do.

A better thing to look at would be Peacegiver's Treasure, The Light of Peace. With over 50k breaths the Hallendran God Kings gain absolutely ridiculous power levels along with the ability to endow that power along with an Intent to everything around them. I expect that the ability Edglium provides would be similar, requiring the user of the power to endow it to another person or object by the very nature of its use.

To me the more interesting question is if the holder of randomly found Edglium can access the power, and the ability to endow it to others (awaken), since it hasn't been willingly endowed to them in the same way breaths and divine breaths by Edgli at birth / return and exclusively transferred by their owners thereafter.

Ok, two thoughts. 

First, i still think Adonalsium formed because investiture seeks sapience, especially if the Cosmere started with a big bang of some sort. It just makes more sense given that situation. 

Second, it is my theory that Felt is the hemalurgist that a few WoBs have referred to. A hemalurgist who goes around the Cosmere collecting stuff, who's not Hoid because he won't use Hemalurgy.

Here’s the discord screen cap of the bet, just in case anyone wanted receipts.

What is fain life? I keep on hearing about it everywhere, but googling it just results in 17th Shard threads.

If you find the chapters of Liar of Partinel somewhere in the site, it explains it pretty well. The only canon mention we have of it is in Arcanum Unbounded, in the Scadrial essay.

Wait wait wait...

How do we know Lightweavers don't just get their sword at the first oath? She obviously gets her armor at the fifth, while skybreakers get it at the fourth. I think the oath number is totally different for each order. She said the words at 9-10. then just had the sword, then swore her truth in the books.
