So, turns out we have an extra art commission for you all, because the other September piece left us with too much money in our art budget. No real connection between the two, we just grabbed the runner-up from that month and did... well, not quite that, but something similar. Art once again brought to you by Shuravf

Okay, that should be enough words to fill up this article's blurb, let's go take a look at Phendorana after the break!

We are incredibly excited to have a special Shardcast where we got to talk to Janci Patterson, co-author of the Skyward Flight novellas: Sunreach, ReDawn, and Evershore! We talk to her about the process, Evershore, and a bit about future Skyward things she and Darci Cole will be working on after Defiant is out! She is completely lovely we had a blast chatting with her!

Our preview show with Danielle and Marvin is back, this time talking about The Lost Metal, the fourth Mistborn Era 2 novel that comes out November 15th, 2022! Preview chapters have not begun yet, and we don't know when they will, but we do have an extremely spicy blurb/synopsis for the book, and that's what we're talking about today!

Oh, friends, what a glorious day it is for us to have eyes! 2021's Coppermind art commission for September came in not too long ago, and it's a looker. It comes to you from the skilled hand of Shuravf whose work you've seen before, and will continue seeing in the future. But you don't come here to read read words, you come here to see all the beautiful and horrible things we pay people to paint, so follow us after the break for the full illustration!

:ph34r: Spoilers for Dawnshard :ph34r:

There's been a lot of interest in the Wheel of Time show amongst our viewers and our staff, so we thought we would do a stream talking about it! About half of the stream will be show spoilers without any book spoilers, and then the second half of the stream will be show spoilers with all book spoilers! Stream will begin Sunday, January 9th, at 11am Pacific / 2pm Eastern.

Happy New Year and welcome to 2022. The Lost Metal is finally for realsies coming out this year, and that is so great to finally say. So let's continue talking about Mistborn and Era 2 by talking about one of its biggest mysteries: the Set and Trell! Oh, and Paalm. And a bunch of other cosmere things, like Svrakiss. We're all over the place, but hopefully you maybe know more on this subject now than you did before!

Evershore, the third Skyward Flight Novella, comes out tonight, December 28th! Merry Christmas to us! The novella will be out on ebook and audio on all major bookstore platforms such as Amazon and Google Play and more. If you want a physical edition, all three Skyward Flight novellas will be in print on April 5th, 2022.

It's the holiday season and all around the world people are decorating their homes with blinking lights, shiny ornaments and... sexy Returned? Well, that's certainly a way to have a good time over the holidays, eh, Siri? ;)
 
For this illustration, we worked with the immensely talented Caio Santos, whose work you can find over on ArtStation and Twitter (or you might recognize it from his amazing paintings already present on the Coppermind). This is likely not the last of him you will see here, friends, but until there's more, enjoy what we have :)
 
Follow us after the break for the full illustration!

Brandon's State of Sanderson blog post is coming out (as stated on the spoiler stream) on the morning of December 20th. We thought it'd be fun to do our Shardcast on State of Sanderson live so we can interact with chat about this. You'll have to excuse the empty spaces and lack of WTCC clues on screen; I can't edit this video otherwise the chat will go away!

Cytonic, the third Skyward novel, is out now, and now we are discussing everything in this episode of Shardcast! We start with some non-spoilery thoughts, and then we get deep into the weeds on what we think as well as talk about some lore topics too. What did you think of Cytonic? Put your comments below!

Last year we announced our Interactive Map and Timeline of Roshar. And with Rhythm of War now one year old, we're here today to announce a major update! We have expanded the timeline to include events for the entirety of Dawnshard and Rhythm of War, and we've added a few other new features that will be explained here. For a general overview, if you are unfamiliar with the project, see our previous announcement and this trailer. We hope that this map and timeline continues to be a useful tool for refreshing yourself on the books or simply exploring the world of Roshar!

Hi everyone! Cytonic, the third Skyward novel, comes out Tuesday, November 23rd, which is just hours away! You can buy the book on Amazon, Google Play, and more! We are changing when our spoiler channels on our Discord server and spoiler forums open up for the release. Previously, we set our spoiler period to begin at midnight Eastern time. Now we will set things to open at midnight GMT, which will be 4pm PDT and 7pm EDT for you Americans.

It feels like it's been ages since we've been done an extremely pedantic mechanics episode, and we reread The Bands of Mourning, so it's finally time to do one we've wanted to do for ages: what the hell is going on with the Southerner medallions? We talk about what we know, what we don't know (which is most things), as well as all the other crazy magic things we got in Bands of Mourning. Also featuring: random theories on Excisors. Not featuring: actually talking the Bands themselves.

Spooky month is now over, but our patrons voted for their favorite spooky piece back in October, and we come to deliver. Come feast your eyes on this absolutely disgusting depiction of a Cryptic having been pulled into the Physical Realm (and the back of Dalinar's body). This illustration comes to you courtesy to the ever-excellent Nozomi.

Full illustration below the break :)
