  1. 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 So far in order to obtain some unpublished works of Brandon's, you'd have to email him through his sites, and his assistants would distribute them.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!
  2. Jim Butcher, Small Favors. I read both Proven Guilty and White Night yesterday, and they were really good, especially Proven Guilty.
  3. I believe this is was a bug of development from a long time ago. It was an editor error, I think. I thought we found them all but evidently not. Simply post more here and we can get them sorted out.
  4. Yeah, don't do that
  5. What did you need to do?
  6. 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!
  7. I'll do some testing this weekend on a test account of mine
  8. Just remove that bottom string of characters. I think the middle paragraph would be considered two lines.
  9. Rhythm of Previews, our readthrough of the Rhythm of War preview chapters, is onto chapter 10! It's a short chapter, but lots to discuss here! You can find all of the preview chapters, and our discussions on 17S, here: https://www.17thshard.com/forum/topic/91039-rhythm-of-war-sample-chapters-and-discussion-threads-index/ Here's our Rhythm of Previews playlist! https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLgGfrVwudwTHINabIn5UWmO-TnwXw7qr8 Want a recap of Stormlight Archive?

  10. Can you post the text you were trying to put there? I can do some testing. It should just be three lines.
  11. I always liked what Theoryland did, with Factions. You could join a faction of a specific theory and support it in that obvious way. Well, since I always want 17S to be Brandon's Theoryland, let's do something similar and post the theories you support in your signature! Rules: 1. If you are the creator of the theory you are espousing, put a star by it. There's no need to only espouse your own theories. Just because I'm doing it doesn't mean anything. Do as I say, not as I do... 2. Try to keep spoilers out of the title of the theory. For example, you wouldn't want to espouse a theory like "Sazed is Going to Roshar," for obvious reasons. Obfuscate it to something like "Shards Traveling to Roshar" or something. I don't know how you would rephrase that particular theory, but we really don't want to spoil an ending from a frickin' forum sig. That would be ridiculous. 3. Link to the original theory topic on 17th Shard. 4. Don't espouse theories that Brandon has explicitly confirmed (like the Almighty's Shard name). At that point, they aren't theories, but facts. This is supposed to create discussion on new ideas. Your new ideas should give a different take on the given facts, not contradict them. 5. Format it like so: [b]Espoused Theories:[/b] [url=insertlinkhere]Theory #1 Name[/url], etc. It's not a perfect system, but let's try it for now. The obvious problem involves when we have a ridiculous amount of theories. It's not a problem now, but it could be later. What do you think of this idea? Have any ideas to make it run more smoothly?
  12. Let's stop just posting "wins". This is extra pointless. Let's put some minor effort here and not just have this be a total spamfest... This is exceptionally low effort.
  13. 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.
  14. We finish off Words of Brandon (well, at least since we recorded this) for the first half of 2020. Here we get some pretty good ones like whether Skybreakers could follow the pirate code, and more! Our cast today is Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), and Marvin (Paleo).

  15. We knew the audio original story The Original, written by Brandon with Mary Robinette Kowal, would come out September 14th, but we barely heard anything about it, considering it was coming so soon. This changed yesterday and now we have the cover, synopsis, and a sample of The Original. The story is a collaboration between a company called Mainframe and Recorded Books. Apparently Mainframe is a creation of Brandon and Max Epstein, a friend and creative partner in Hollywood. We'll hear more about Mainframe "soon" but The Original is the "first project." Julia Whelan, an the Audie Award winning narrator, narrates the story. The synopsis is: You can listen to the first chapter of it below!
  16. It's going to break responsive design if you do complicated things, so please don't.
  17. Rhythm of Previews, our readthrough of the Rhythm of War preview chapters, continues with chapter 9! Goodbye, short episodes, we barely knew you. But there's a lot of very exciting things in this chapter, so it's all very warranted! You can find all of the preview chapters, and our discussions on 17S, here: https://www.17thshard.com/forum/topic/91039-rhythm-of-war-sample-chapters-and-discussion-threads-index/ Here's our Rhythm of Previews playlist! https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLgGfrVwudwTHINabIn5UWmO-TnwXw7qr8 Want a recap of Stormlight Archive?

  18. Please note that the majority of people on the site are on mobile and doing tables and stuff will likely not render correctly for them. So avoid tables.
  19. By signing up for Brandon's newsletter you can get an exclusive RoW interlude, and it's a Syl interlude! Let's discuss it here. EDIT: Please note this should stay exclusive to the newsletter, so no distribution of it, but know you can simply sign up for Brandon's newsletter on his website.
  20. No. I expect the majority of people will want to talk about both.
  21. From the Dawnshard description: "Discuss Dawnshard here! Do not include Rhythm of War spoilers here." So, since this contains RoW, you cannot put it in Dawnshard. The RoW boards can have both RoW+Dawnshard stuff. The Dawnshard forum will have no RoW spoilers.
  22. 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.
  23. So it's 10pm Pacific time on June 25th, and Dark One is coming out on ebook tomorrow, June 26th. Time to make our Dark One forum! I'm not entirely sure when the ebook will fall out, so here's your official spoilery reaction topic! For info on where to preorder and a 29 page sample, see here: Consider this forum to have spoilers. You do not need to tag topic titles here. Additionally, last week Brandon said the Dark One stream would be this week, but today Dragonsteel said it was postponed: I'll have to get reading on this tomorrow! I imagine Vault comics will send it out via email. Dark One should be our next Shardcast on next Friday. EDIT: It's still not out yet. Boo
  24. I would not say factual errors like that need to be checked ahead of time. We need to patrol each edit after the fact. We check So be bold!
  25. Go ahead and edit it then?
