  1. Hi all, This forum now is the place to discuss Intentionally Blank, Brandon's podcast with Dan Wells, in addition to Writing Excuses. Cheers!
  2. Sorry for the delay, the Writing Excuses board now includes Intentionally Blank now!
  3. Well, there haven't been preview chapters of this one, so not really a big deal, but to be clear: no full book spoilers on Bastille until midnight GMT September 20th. That is, for US folks, September 19th 5pm Pacific / 8pm Eastern. Some folks have already received their books, so just hold in those thoughts a bit longer until then!
  4. 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 So far in order to obtain some unpublished works of Brandon's, you'd have to email him through his sites, and his assistants would distribute them.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 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. 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! Edit as of January 4th, 2023: This is all still going! We've gone through almost 300 pages of replies distributing. It's just that we remove posts here once we send them out.
  5. Jim Butcher, Small Favors. I read both Proven Guilty and White Night yesterday, and they were really good, especially Proven Guilty.
  6. 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.
  7. 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?
  8. Put your full book reactions to Tress of the Emerald Sea (which is Secret Project 1) here. Note in this forum, talk about stuff in Tress only, not greater cosmere connections.
  9. Put your full book reactions to Tress here. Cosmere spoilers are allowed in this forum!
  10. In the time honored tradition of TWG's Stupid Titles thread (yes, TWG is back!) and the fact that our rep system is now overhauled, there are all sorts of dumb and exciting promotions that you can have! So, what is your current rank? Plus, I'm sure more than a few of you want to figure out which rank is what. Good luck with that My favorite--and totally coincidental, I swear--person's rank is Peter, at the rank of Rambleman. Okay, it wasn't entirely coincidental, but once I happened to assign Rambleman to that place and I noticed Peter there... well, I couldn't resist. I'm so sorry. Kind of.
  11. I'll be changing this forum to also include the Intentionally Blank podcast as well. They are good podcasts! They should have a spot here.
  12. Hi there. Please don't post topics in multiple locations! I have removed the one in Mistborn that had only one reply, and moved this to the Mistborn board, as this only has Mistborn content, and we wouldn't want you to get spoiled on cosmere things.
  13. Probably bonkers long signatures. Super obnoxious.
  14. I really enjoyed the Religions topic, but I'm derailing it with my zany brand of nonspirituality. Also math. There was a lot of that. So, here you can ask me anything you want! You can continue that discussion in the religion thread, and maybe probe deeper into my atheistic tendencies. (Topic starter: I'd prefer if there wasn't an afterlife! Am I crazy? You decide! ) Ask about philosophy! Ask about math! Ask about quantum physics! Ask about Brandon's works! You could ask me about theory stuff, but that might be as bad as me blabbing about math! Ask about site stuff. Ask me sarcastic questions because you thought they were funny! Ask me anything!
  15. This is it, it's our final Word of Brandon episode for solidly like a month. This episode covers the final bit of the December Spoiler Stream, and then we talk about the Tress Spoiler Stream. This episode, we have Eric (Chaos), Evgeni (Argent), Shannon (Grey), Marvin (Paleo), and Veronica (Cheyenne Sedai).

  16. I would definitely say at this stage the Discord has many more active users than the forums!
  17. No need to ignore it; it's been flagged as spammer and as nuked from orbit and banned. Certainly you can do this for members, but definitely report spambots.
  18. Most of the bots are Indian, for whatever reason. It's not about you
  19. Probably not. I have very little free time, hence why you don't find me blabbing too much on the forums. I am spending time writing my novel. I don't even have much time to chat on Discord, which has a bit less friction to chatting, and I always talk to my wife on there regardless. Okay but see, if I don't say my wife (Lady Lameness) then I will be killed! Not really, but still. I will be boring though, I don't exactly have one? There are lots of awesome people around, for sure, but favorites are hard. I don't even really have a favorite movie. You're asking me to choose between thousands of people? No pressure haha. A lot of my chatting is in the #writing channel on the Discord right now, so I'd probably have to choose someone there, I guess? Let's say Lotus. But also no offense to Lotus, I don't really have actual favorites. Except my wife, obviously!
  20. Secret Project 2, The Frugal Wizard's Handbook for Surviving Medieval England, is now out to Kickstarter backers. Put your full book reactions here!
  21. This is software we paid for, not exactly something we coded ourselves. I'm sure we could delve into the code if we wished, but... I would not say that's a high priority objective to sate curiosity.
  22. I don't really have an answer for you. It's kind of wonky and does some odd things. We can't figure out the logic of it.
  23. Yes, this board is not for book discussion. I've moved it to the Mistborn board.
  24. We're back! There's still more WoBs! Jaddeth is Autonomy, maybe? Tons of Elantris and Lost Metal stuff here, as well as Hoid and Bloody Tan stuff! We have Eric (Chaos), David (Windrunner), Veronica (Cheyenne Sedai), and Kendra (little wilson).
