Shardkeepers Podcast: Edgedancer Analysis


Welcome back to Shardkeepers! This time with Edgedancer being available as a standalone, we can pretend this podcast on analyzing Edgedancer is timely, and not months late. Yup, we are finally analyzing Edgedancer, nearly a year late, but shhhh, we were all very busy in the spring. So we're a bit out of practice (if we were ever in practice in the first place). 

There's absolutely no Oathbringer spoilers in this podcast, though we did need to cut some out of it, which we'll post as outtakes later. There are some Mistborn spoilers about some general Shardy things. 

We almost have all the gang together: Kerry, Ian, and I return, but we also have Alyx (FeatherWriter) in it. So of course instead of talking about Edgedancers we end up talking about Renarin and the Truthwatchers. We do talk about Lift, and Lift being awesome, but we also talk about Nale's name. That's a good 30% of this podcast. We talk about how terrible the Sons of Honor are, how crazy the Heralds are, and how Honor clearly isn't good all the time. We have a good philosophy time on Shardkeepers.

You also get some hard-hitting analysis that you expect from Shardkeepers, such as, "don't put fire near wood." We're really killing it today. 

We hope you enjoy this. We kind of got a bit off track near the end, where Kerry abandoned the Shardpact and we were left to our own devices. Like with Roshar, it didn't end well.

Thanks to Botanica Xu for the wonderful art of Nale and Lift :)

Great, now I have a nightmare about hundreds of tiny bugs skittering across a sea of glass beads. All those thousands of legs.... Imagine the noise.

Always entertaining to listen to these. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Tashikk pronounced Tash-i-kuk? Isn't there an in-book explanation that those consonants stuck together have repeated sounds (i.e. Axikk, Ishikk, Tigzikk).

I actually don't remember. I think so? We need a three hour podcast to discuss this, clearly ;)

@Chaos Ha! Yes, indeed. I'm pretty sure when we first meet Lift she decides that she's just going to call Tigzikk 'Tig' because she couldn't pronounce his name as it sounded like she was choking or something. As tricky as it is for my mind to wrap around these names when I read them, I find it a clever and innovative new way to come up with some unique names in a consistent language structure.
