It's been a hot minute since we've last consolidated Brandon related news, so there's a bunch of stuff to talk about. Between Skyward 3 draft #3 being done, the Mistborn: House War game on Tabletop Simulator, and an art contest by Brandon's Spanish publisher, a lot of other things have happened, so read on to learn more!

Welcome to our How to Play: Call to Adventure Stormlight Archive edition!

Have you been wondering how to play Call to Adventure Stormlight Archive edition? Do you own the game but don't know how to read? Maybe you're just curious about the game and want to know how it's played before you buy! Maybe you just want to listen to me and Lucy blabber on about a board game. Whatever you are, come watch our video!

Welcome to a brand-new year, and a brand-new Shardcast! Many of you have requested this Sixth of the Dusk 2 reading that Brandon read at the Rhythm of War release party, which you can find here. So it's time to get that done now that we finished our initial set of Rhythm of War topics, and oh boy, this one is exciting! Please be warned there are Rhythm of War things in this episode, and if you don't want spoilers for the space age cosmere, pass on this episode!

Happy New Year everybody!

We're honored to say that 17th Shard has been nominated for a few of their annual Stabby Awards!

I am very, very excited to show off this episode, Ba-Ado-Mishram and the Recreance. Rhythm of War spoilers here. We talk about a lot of the new stuff here, and go through a Recreance timeline here. And so so much more. You guys said you wanted Who's That Cosmere Character, so there you go, this is our longest podcast yet! 

Happy Koloss Head-Munching Eve! Or... eve of the eve? We're getting State of the Sanderson a day early this year! Look for it on Friday the 18th, around 9 or 10 am Mountain Time!

Yep, it's that time of year again folks. The Christmas trees are decorated, the menorahs are polished, the koloss are looking for some heads to munch... And with birthday cake in one hand, Brandon Sanderson is using the other to type out his annual State of the Sanderson address!

Stay tuned for more on that... Oh, and sorry of this post title got your heart thumping. ^_^ No, nobody knows exactly when the Sander Claus will come to leave his update in our inboxes. But you can bet that when he does it will be all the buzz in every corner of the fandom. In the meantime, I've got something for you to do before begin your furious CTRL+F5 mashing...

STATE OF THE SANDERSON 2020 BINGO!
