  1. Happy Pride Month everyone! This episode of Shardcast, we get very gay. We're talking about Queerness in the Cosmere, so we're talking about queer representation, examples, how Brandon has evolved over time and is putting in more representation. We also have some critiques and hopes for the future. So if you want to see the cosmere from a queer lens, this episode is for you! This week Jess (LadyLameness) has killed Eric and is hosting the podcast instead, and we have our token straight person, Alyx (Feather), as well as Matt (Comatose), Shannon (Grey), Ala (Rasarr), and Kadie (AonEne)! Here are a bunch of links for terminology: https://www.hrc.org/resources/glossary-of-terms https://pflag.org/glossary https://transstudent.org/gender/ Thumbnail image of Renarin and Rlain by the amazing rspixart: https://rspixart.tumblr.com/ Here's a link to Jemma Young, who made those Zelda pins: https://www.jemmayoung.com/ YouTube chapters: 00:00 Introductions and Show & Tell 7:49 Terminology Disclaimer 10:07 Consuming Media as a Queer Person and Lenses 22:59 Shallan's Bisexuality 27:57 Why does Brandon have so many queer fans? 38:44 Representation and Some Examples 49:28 Jasnah 1:12:30 Kaladin/Adolin 1:18:54 Shallan/Jasnah 1:22:51 Kaladin/Moash 1:23:22 Navani/Raboniel 1:25:56 Platonic Friendships 1:31:04 Ranette, Queerness in the Background 1:39:07 Trans Representation 1:42:36 The Sibling and Nonbinary Characters 1:53:08 Singer Gender 1:55:58 Renarin and Rlain 2:00:03 Future Hopes 2:07:03 Who's That Cosmere Character If you like our content, support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/17thshard For discussion, theories, games, and news, come to https://www.17thshard.com Come talk with us and the community on the 17th Shard Discord: https://discordapp.com/invite/bMAUS5c Want to learn more about the cosmere and more?

  2. Nobody seems to check in on how the admins are doing so I'll break the stigma: how's life?

  3. Oh yeah, no worries Topic has been moved to Cosmere, though note that does not include Rhythm of War spoilers, as it's still in the spoiler period.
  4. Hi all, just a reminder RoW stuff should only be in the RoW boards during the spoiler period. In addition, maybe you'd like me to move this topic to a forum that allows discussion of spoilers? We like to keep Introductions spoiler-free. Let me know if you'd like that and I'll do that!
  5. All good Chinkoln, but let's try to get away from litigating crimes here when no one (to my knowledge) is a lawyer here. I don't think this tangent is super necessary.
  6. Okay, ya'll, you are not following my instructions to chill and relax. If you will not do so, the thread will be locked and individuals will be moderated. Be good.
  7. There's definitely been some heated posts here. Take it down a few notches. Please read: Yes, we tend to have an issue with people escalating things rather than de-escalating. We have made our expectations clear to you a number of times. If you are confused about our expectations, you can read the above link and the Code of Conduct. That said, I think everyone could take a few deep breaths, relax a bit, and be kind and respectful to all in this thread. The more contentious a thread, the more respectful we should be. Threads are not contests.
  8. Hi, you can't put RoW spoilers outside the spoiler boards. I have moved this to one of the Rhythm of War boards.
  9. Hi all, I am closing this topic as it seems to let a lot of spambots to post a single link. Sorry!
  10. Yeah, it had been so long since I read Name of the Wind it didn't even occur to me.
  11. We would prefer people to use the report feature rather than pinging individual mods. That way, any mod can respond. I have unhidden the post. The reason why we cannot enable users to unhide posts is because, due to the way settings work, let's say someone posted a really awful, mean topic, and the moderators hid it. That permission would allow the topic creator to unhide it, which would obviously not be ideal. We almost always hide posts rather than delete, so we can reference them later if needbe. One more thing, @Elf_at_heart: you can quote multiple people at once by using the Multiquote feature. That's the + to the left of the Quote button. This way you can quote multiple people without making multiple posts. We prefer people not double post. Thanks, and welcome! Let us know if you have questions. We are here to help.
  12. Sure, we got this a few weeks ago, but we saved unboxing it for you all, so you can see ALL the swag in the Tier 6 Way of Kings Leatherbound swag pack. It has all the order swag, coasters, chicken scouts, and more! We also unpack the Dragon Wood Shop challenge coin case, which looks amazing. (Sorry for the choppy video later on; the recording method required a computer and my laptop wasn't quite powerful enough for it. I'm still learning YouTube-y things!) 00:00 Introductions 2:13 Coasters 5:41 Bumper Sticker and Bookmark 7:08 Chicken Scout Swag 8:01 Ads 9:53 Special Backer Pouch and Chicken Scout Patch 11:06 Order Challenge Coins 14:15 Order Pins 16:17 Order Patches 17:23 Order Stickers 22:39 Order Art Pieces by Steve Argyle 29:23 Stormlight Playing Cards 34:15 Dragon Wood Shop Coin Case 37:25 Wit Coin (Spoilers?) 39:36 Outro If you like our content, support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/17thshard
  13. Today on Shardcast, we talk about an extremely nice, totally sane character: Ishar! He definitely did not have his hand in a lot of stuff, or cause many problems. And he certainly did nothing disturbing in Rhythm of War! Also, news, and limmericks in Who's That Cosmere Character! This episode we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), Grace (thegatorgirl), Ben (Overlord Jebus), and Ala (Rasarr), who even though it was just three letters wrong, I still pronounced it wrong. Way to go, Eric.

  14. I always assumed it was about the Southern Scadrians.
  15. I believe this is simply an error in the map and they accidentally wrote it twice.
