  1. Jim Butcher, Small Favors. I read both Proven Guilty and White Night yesterday, and they were really good, especially Proven Guilty.
  2. We have some exciting news to announce today. So far in order to obtain some unpublished works of Brandon's, you'd have to email him through his sites, and his assistants would distribute them. Well now you won't need to wait for that, because now we will be in charge of distributing out Aether of Night! All you have to do is post in this topic (you'll need a 17S account, but that's it), and our staff will PM you the document. Once we do this, we'll remove your post here. We'll be using this topic as a to-do list for requests. Ideally since we have lots of staff members, we will get this out to you soon, within a week or two. With this change we are unpasswording the Aether of Night board, as now all of you will have access to it if you want it. You may discuss Aether of Night in the Cosmere Theories board, but tag your topic title with [Aether]. We hope you're excited about this, so many of you will be able to get this text in a much more obvious way now! You will receive a .docx file, and if you need to convert it into a .pdf or .epub, there are many converters to do that for you. (We are not distributing the prose version of White Sand, as that will continue to be distributed in Brandon's newsletters.) Thank you Dragonsteel for letting 17S do this!
  3. Because we need more forum games, wee! What song are you listening to right now? I'm listening to Ayumi Hamasaki - sending mail. This CD is really good.
  4. Yes, this is Grammarly, which causes bad interactions with CKEditor.
  5. 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.
  6. Post typos and errors for Skyward here.
  7. 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).

  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Controversial opinion: dogs are overrated by a lot!
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Hi all, post your reactions to the third Legion story, Lies of the Beholder, here.
  14. If don't already know, Mistborn has been optioned to become a film. That may still mean a fillm won't happen, but it's a cool first step. That won't stop us from talking about choices on actors! I'll start. Personally, I was always a fan of the notion of Nathan Fillion for Kelsier, but then someone brought up Robert Downey Jr., and he might be the perfect choice. For Vin, I'm also pro-Summer Glau, but there's a big Ellen Page movement on TWG. Thoughts?
  15. 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. This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), and Grace (thegatorgirl). Send your Who's That Cosmere Characters to [email protected]!
  16. @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.
  17. Click here to go to the Ultimate List Google Doc. If you have any question about Brandon's books that hasn't been resolved yet, post them, and I'll just keep aggregating them to this list. This is a resource to be used by people who will have an opportunity to ask questions of Brandon, so it has been decided that if a question has a considerable chance of being RAFO'd with no extra information gained, then we will not add it to this list. There's no point in wasting a question after all. If a staff member decides that your question shouldn't be added you are welcome to appeal the decision by telling us why you think Brandon will answer the question. Admins and/or staff have final calls though. Also any question you submit may be edited for clarity. If you are heading out to a signing this is a great resource for finding a good question about an area that you would like to know more about. If the question you wish to ask is not on this list then I'd appreciate if you checked the Interview Database to see if it has already been answered. A couple tips for checking are: Use keywords in your search, chances if someone has already asked the same question they won't have used the same exact words If Brandon has RAFO'd a question similar to the one you wish to ask, he'll probably do the same to yours After you do one search for some keywords, using "ctrl f" is a useful way to further narrow your search by finding other relevant words on the results page Remember if you do accidentally ask something someone else has its not the end of the world, we won't be mad. Just be sure not to ask Brandon to sign your book with a Cosmere clue. He has requested that we no longer do this and simply ask a specific question. If you ask a question and it has been answered I will post the answer and PM you you to let you know. Let's determine precisely what we know, and questions we must ask in the future!
  18. 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!

  20. It is over but the name of the forum just hasn't been changed yet.
  21. Hi guys, looks like most ebook places are distributing Skyward now, so it's time for full book spoilers! Post them here. I didn't really like how the topic tags happened with Oathbringer, so I would say don't do that here but please do keep spoilers out of topic titles. So yeah, here we go! I hope you enjoyed it.
  22. Here's the usual typo thread for White Sand Vol. 2, if you see any errors. Or, like in Vol. 1, dialogue being misattributed
  23. 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]!
  24. Hello! This forum is Introduce yourself, and this is not an introduction. I have moved this to General Brandon.
  25. 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.
