  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 So far in order to obtain some unpublished works of Brandon's, you'd have to email him through his sites, and his assistants would distribute them.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. It's time for yet more from the Starsight release, where we actually go a bit faster through the Words of Brandon this time. There's even some actual things related to Skyward and Starsight, whoa! Oh, and don't forget the random destiny tangent we forced Ian to take us on. We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), Grace (thegatorgirl), and Marvin (Paleo)!

  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. Though I found the meme amusing, I would like the Coppermind and Arcanum forums to focus on legitimate work, and not cremposting Thanks!
  5. Jim Butcher, Small Favors. I read both Proven Guilty and White Night yesterday, and they were really good, especially Proven Guilty.
  6. On the editor, you want to use the attachment feature. Below the reply box there is "Drag files here to attach, or choose files." That should do it but let me know if that does not.
  7. Hi guys, just want to make a reminder to not double post, and please edit the previous post instead of double posting! Thanks.
  8. On 17th Shard, all our news is totally on time, and not at all late. (Thank you Grace for writing this!!)
  9. Whoa, even though there was no Starsight tour, the release gave us a lot of crazy Words of Brandon. We go deep in the weeds this episode. But first, Eric has to tell everyone about his fiance, and we also discuss an Eshonai reading from Stormlight 4. Oh, and no big deal, Brandon finished the rough draft of Stormlight 4. Exciting stuff this episode! We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), Grace (thegatorgirl), and joining for the first time, Marvin (Paleo)! Our next episode won't be two weeks from today, but it'll be next Friday! Hooray!

  10. I don't really mind having a new topic, but since the old topic was more generic and will be more future proofed, let's use that. I don't think it's a big deal either way, though. Old topic is here:
  11. It's past midnight Eastern, and my successful book purchase on Google Play says that Starsight is out! That means it's time for full book spoilers. So this is the requisite full book reaction thread!
  12. That whole page needs an update.
  13. 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?
  14. PMs will be going out to many parties today, and let's get back on topic please.
  15. EDIT: The staff have decided to lock this post. Please see here for more details: Original post: 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!
  16. iOS, not Android. Though there are apps that allow you to do that on Android.
  17. It's time for a very loopy and entertaining podcast on the Horneaters. We talk about their origins, their culture, Rock and his mysteries, and more. And it is sometimes a little silly sometimes. This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), and Shannon (Grey). Shardcast is the premier podcast on Brandon's works, Stormlight Archive, Mistborn, and all of the cosmere, run by the mega-fans at 17th Shard. We strive for high-quality discussion and analysis and accuracy, but if we missed something, we're sure you'll comment below!

  18. We are completely at the behest of Invision for editor updates. We are a few versions behind but I am not sure if such a feature for the editor is in a newer version.
  19. Interesting. Guests now can, which is different from before...
  20. Uh... Did this magically fix itself?
  21. Shardcast will also be out tomorrow this week. Turns out you don't exactly get a lot of time to edit when on vacation, but tomorrow will be easy enough to get it done!
  22. Hi all! This will still be a Shardcast week, and an episode is coming. However, we recorded it Sunday due to scheduling and it's been a very busy week with my teaching, so I haven't been able to start editing it yet. I will begin tomorrow but it's also the longest video we've ever recorded. Because of this (and because I have to do production on making WoBs appear on screen) it is almost a certainty that it will be out Saturday. I apologize for the inconvenience, but worry not, I'll be working on it! It'll be a doozy of an episode with us talking about the Nalthis star chart, a bit on the updated reading of the prologue, and tons of WoBs. I intend to have it done early afternoon Pacific time on Saturday, so not too late in the day. For more up to date Shardcast announcements, head to our Discord and go to the #shardcast channel.
  23. 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.
  24. We will get those flagged as spammers. They probably registered and got hit by our anti spam measure so they couldn't post. Thanks!
  25. I see what happened. The original author of the thread wished their account to be deleted, so in the process of that deletion occurring, the topic got hidden. I restored the topic.
