Chapter 103



Welcome to my liveblog of Rhythm of War! Index post here. Beware of spoilers.

Chapter 103 (The Legend You Live)
Icons: Jez and Vev=windrunners and edgedancers. Teft and Lift gonna be doin’ stuff.
Epigraph: El also thinks human tenacity appears appropriately Rosharan. 

Teft is right that Kaladin does have a flair for the dramatic, but having just seen inside his head I don’t know I’d go so far as to say he’s intentionally grandstanding.

Teft, that was pretty ballsy but I don’t think putting them in a headlock is the preferred method to deal with opponents who have electrokinesis. I guess it works, though, when you’ve got a healer on tap and Stormlight for strength. Too bad Moash is on his way or this might actually work as planned.

Yes, Phenodrana. Go out the east-facing window into the coming highstorm. Briliant plan.

Oh no! Moash wasn’t on his way, he was already here and ready to ambush the rescue party! As he takes down lift, I can’t help but think: He’s come to steal Kaladin’s dinner.

Kaladin is doing a good job of getting into the Pursuer’s head. But pulling out a scalpel as his weapon of choice was not what I expected him to do. Neat statement about fusing his soldier and surgeon identities, but could probably have been built up more to make that moment really shine.
What is Moash using that sand for? It’s already black, so it’s got to be intended as a sensor. Is he detecting spren?

Teft, you are facing down an honorblade-wielding agent of odium with only a dagger. I think Kaladin is rubbing off on you.
