  1. The Hero of Ages leatherbound came out just after New Year's, and with it, the long-awaited Table of Hemalurgic Metals! We now bring you the finest group of pedants to discuss all of the new powers, and more! In fact we talked so much (over three hours!) that we split this into two episodes. This first one we're exclusively talking about the Hemalurgic powers, but don't worry we're going to be talking about bind points and more next time. This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), David (Windrunner), and Matt (Comatose). 3:20 - The Hemalurgy Table! 10:25 - The Temporal Quadrants 24:52 - The Spiritual Metals 1:07:10 - God Metals 1:27:11 - Who's That Cosmere Character! Send your Who's That Cosmere Characters to [email protected] See you next week!
  2. https://www.17thshard.com/forum/notifications/options/ is what you want. You can customize notifications on a variety of different items to email you, show up in the list. I typically like PMs going to email but most other things I just have marked in Notification List.
  3. We have a few short news items for you this week! First up, Brandon has moved the Stormlight 4 and 5 outline to 25%. Brandon wants to make sure the next two books are plotted so he doesn't miss any plot threads at the end of the first Stormlight arc in Stormlight 5, which you can read about in his Stormlight 4 Update 1 Reddit post. Next up, the amazing Miranda Meeks made a fantastic piece of Vin and Elend for the Hero of Ages Leatherbound, and now you can buy a poster of it for $10. Miranda outdoes herself again, and the piece is absolutely fantastic. There is a high probability I go buy this one and frame it, because dang. It's also called "Defending Preservation," which is just an awesome title. The poster is 16" x 20", which to me seems worth that $10. Lastly, the Hero of Ages Leatherbounds now are open to be personalized on Brandon's store. There, Brandon will write your name in the book, which a short greeting. You cannot get cosmere questions in these now. But, if you were holding off on the leatherbound because it was only available signed, now you can get it!
  4. I'm not sure how you managed to remove that amount of the page; I suspect a misclick, but all seems fixed now. Not a big deal!
  5. Oh right. I keep forgetting to do this.
  6. Bored of Words of Brandon? Don't worry, we're here to spice it up this episode with: more Felt! Dragons! And, one of the craziest Words of Brandon yet. (Go to 1:00:33 for the start of it.) Also this features arguing about Sleepless, what the singers are called, and even more PedantiCast action that you (maybe?) want. This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), Grace (thegatorgirl). Send your Who's That Cosmere Characters to [email protected]
  7. I don't really think that invalidates the table at all, it's just additional complexity.
  8. I do believe Era 2 wise Hybrid metal is correct as the Feruchemy quadrant name, superceding the eight "physical" metal things. How does BoM throw out the Feruchemy table?
  9. Will we have a podcast on the Hemalurgy Table? Lord Ruler, we will, do not worry. This is spicy!
  10. The Table of Hemalurgic Metals is here, in the Hero of Ages Leatherbound. Aonstick on Reddit got their hands on it, and my my, it is spicy. Take a look: The Hemalurgic quadrants are Physical, Mental, Temporal, and Spiritual, so the quadrant names are a bit mixed between Allomantic names and Feruchemical names. The table itself shows various bindpoints for Steel Inquisitors, which is quite spicy. But first the abilities, and let's just quickly look at that bottom half for the new stuff: Temporal Cadmium: Steals Temporal Allomantic powers Bendalloy: Steals Spiritual Feruchemical powers Gold: Steals Hybrid Feruchemical powers Electrum: Steals Enhancement Allomantic powers This is quite interesting, as the Physical and Mental quadrants all steal two base human attributes, in addition to Allomancy/Feruchemy. Spiritual Chromium: Might steal destiny Nicrosil: Steals Investiture Aluminum: Removes all powers Duralumin: Steals Connection/Identity Might steal destiny!? What! Aluminum removes all powers! Does such a spike need to be charged? Nicrosil spikes are overpowered as crap, stealing Investiture, whoa. And lastly, the god metals: Atium: Steals any power. Must be refined Lerasium: Steals all abilities Hold the Phone Company, whoa. We have known atium is a Hemalurgic "wildcard," but this steals any power, but must be refined somehow. What does refined mean in this context? And lerasium, steals all abilities. Note the change in the verbiage from "power" on atium to "abilities" on lerasium. What does that distinction mean? (Not that lerasium spikes seem super useful compared to just ingesting it, but still.) This is crazy awesome. But now let's take a look at the bindpoints. There is a different colored metal by each quadrant name, like Physical, Mental, etc. This clearly must represent the applicable bindpoint for each quadrant of metal. It isn't specific as to where you need to put a steel spike to get Allomantic pewter, for example, but look at it. This labels effective bindpoints for Spiritual Hemalurgic abilities, and seems to imply that maybe Steel Inquisitors had such abilities sometime.
  11. There was a rendering error from Premiere last night; I have updated the post with updated versions and hopefully nothing has gone awry!
  12. On this totally on time episode of Shardcast, Eric screwed up recording so he can't put Words of Brandon on screen. Production value! But, we do get some cool stuff with Voidlight. Also, space whales, the Super Cannon, and the UnBae'd. And, lastly, Eric freaks out about the Lord Ruler's children, as usual. This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), and Shannon (Grey). Send your Who's That Cosmere Characters to [email protected]
  13. I could do this for sure but sometimes it can be rather time consuming to do, and already editing takes up a lot of time. (Also sometimes we go in between different topics, so it's not quite as neat as you'd probably hope.) But we will see!
  14. I don't know; it's just a built-in thing on IPS, so I don't really know how high it gets. I certainly wouldn't design a system to go past 99...
  15. I'd much prefer putting it on the About Me page.
