  1. Hello! I believe you must be referring to this topic: Which was made in 2016, discussion ended, then a person commented on later. Though I empathize with wanting to resurrect such a subject, I do not believe this is the right way to go about it. You are more than welcome to continue the discussion, but do realize that older discussion ended a long time ago. For a new topic to be made, I believe there should be something substantive to add, which then people may reply to. Please feel free to make such a topic! Hoid is obviously a valid discussion! Such a topic coming at things with Oathbringer and new knowledge? Sure, sounds good. But I will be closing this one as it is not really prompting discussion.
  2. We're finishing up our discussion myths this episode, starting with a bunch of Hoid stories, like Derethil and the Wandersail, Queen Tsa sleeps with the moon, and Fleet. Then we finish off with Parasaphi and Nadris, and briefly mention the Ten Fools and what's up with them. This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), and Grace (thegatorgirl).

  3. Well, your tests would be different now, since you've passed the post threshold to the Members group. Those older spam restrictions no longer apply. Still, even if you were in the New Member group you should be able to post anywhere.
  4. You should have been able to post in other locations, but within the first two posts there can't be links, as an anti-spam precaution. I'll investigate. My wifi network is Scadrial and I have all my devices Scadrian themed, like my computer is Kredik Shaw, my Chromecast is Canton of Resource. So I like theming it around a particular planet.
  5. Controversial opinion: dogs are overrated by a lot!
  6. That is not possible currently. I'm not sure in the new version which will be updated to... sometime. They used to be accessible on the main navbar, but very few people used them. There is not unlimited space on the top navbar so they were relegated to the dropdown. People didn't care about them. The feature may be removed at some point as it does increase our renewal costs for the software, and is again, quite underused.
  7. This topic has been closed as it is a very old topic. If you would like to add something you may create a new topic.
  8. It's time we discussed some myths of Roshar, and let's dive into one of the biggest ones first: The Girl Who Looked Up! We're talking about both versions of the myth--both Shallan's and Hoid's--and then... well. We kind of go off the deep end a bit. How is Allomantic gold relevant to this? You'll find out, sort of.

  9. @ElendVenture @I lost my flute Double posting is not allowed; if you post twice in short succession, Hide one of your posts and Edit the previous one in with the content of your second post. To quote multiple people, press the + next to the words Quote to use the Multiquote feature. It's not a huge deal but it's happening a lot on this thread so I wanted to let you know to please not continue double posting. In addition I have removed many off topic posts in this thread. You may continue an insult contest in either Forum Games/Nonsense or PMs. We would strongly prefer discussion topics to stay in the spirit of the topic at hand.

  11. It is over but the name of the forum just hasn't been changed yet.
  12. Now it's time for, shockingly, a podcast that isn't on Roshar! We're heading to Nalthis, the world of Warbreaker, and we're here to discuss some of the most important individuals on that planet: the Five Scholars! These are early cosmere scholars and researchers of Awakening, and you know, one of them created this little thing called Nightblood. I'm sure it's not that important... So refresh yourself on all of what we know on the Five Scholars, the Manywar, and more! This week we have Eric (Vasher), Ian (Yesteel), Evgeni (Denth), David (Arsteel), and Grace (Shashara). Well, at least until I killed her. Look, it had to be done. Send your Who's That Cosmere Characters to [email protected]!
  13. Here's an interesting news piece from San Diego Comic Con. J. Michael Straczynski--of Babylon 5 and Sense8, and a big time TV writer--is working with Brandon Sanderson for a pilot for the USA Network. It's apparently an urban fantasy that JMS says "turns many of the standard tropes upside down." We seem to think this is potentially about Dark One, but we don't actually know. We were told Dark One was a portal fantasy--a person taken from Earth to another world--which isn't quite urban fantasy. This could be something different. It's hard to say at this stage. Edit: Brandon confirmed on Reddit yesterday that this is indeed related to Dark One! Brandon reports that Straczynski has been a lot of fun to work with, but he can't say much more for the time being. Regardless of what this is, I personally am extremely excited about this collaboration. Babylon 5 was one of my very favorite TV shows and I think JMS and Brandon would fit exceptionally well together. We don't know if JMS would work on the show past the pilot, and even if the pilot is produced, that doesn't mean the TV show will actually run. But here's hoping, right? Thanks to The Wertzone for bringing this to our attention!
  14. Hello! This forum is Introduce yourself, and this is not an introduction. I have moved this to General Brandon.
  15. This week we actually talk about the news, a brand-new Stormlight 4 reading! Then we discuss Cultivation and her plans. We carefully stay on the rails this time, even though we kind of go into the weeds with Cultivation's maybe-magic system. Come join us on this episode and maybe you'll grow some in your knowledge of Cultivation! Hah, get it? Okay, I'm done. We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), and Grace (thegatorgirl) this time. Skip to 25:51 to skip discussion on the reading.
