  1. 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!
  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 So far in order to obtain some unpublished works of Brandon's, you'd have to email him through his sites, and his assistants would distribute them.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. 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?
  4. I see. Unfortunately, apps are very expensive (as I mentioned in previous responses) and a massive time commitment. I don't think it will ever happen. Apps also require a huge amount of upkeep. As a note, only good apps are smoother than websites. It's easy to have a bad app. Responsively designed sites are much more sustainable.
  5. Jim Butcher, Small Favors. I read both Proven Guilty and White Night yesterday, and they were really good, especially Proven Guilty.
  6. Why do you want an app? What can be done on an app that cannot be done on mobile?
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. This episode, we're talking about the history and cultures of Sel, featuring sharks! Well, somewhat. Today we have the debut of the Shardcaster Benny. What's a Svordishman's favorite weapon? A Svord, of course. Okay, but really, there's a lot of interesting history and lore on Sel, and it'll be pretty cool to see Elantris sequels someday. We have Benny (the Happy Shark), Evgeni (Argent), Grace (thegatorgirl), Marvin (Paleo), and Joshua (jofwu)!

  10. The topic that was removed did not talk about the usual Liar of Partinel chapters that had historically been available on Brandon's site, which was why it was removed. The ch 1-2 one is allowed, but there was some later stuff that was not really publicly available, so it was removed. Said person was also spreading distribution of these works, which Brandon doesn't want, which was another reason it was removed.
  11. This episode, we're talking about the Shin! Who are they? They *invaded* Roshar? The Stone Shamans? Well, there's stuff we know, but also even more we don't... We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Ben (Overlord Jebus), and Grace (thegatorgirl)!

  12. Yes, sorry about this. This is a known issue; open the link in a new tab and it will work. I have known about this for a while but haven't had time to fix this. The blame is solidly on me for this
  13. No need for the [OB] tag any longer, so I removed that from the topic title
  14. Just as a note, make sure topics that have reference multiple series always go in Cosmere Discussion.
  15. This episode, we discuss our Rhythm of War (now the confirmed title of Stormlight 4) predictions! Or at least, we recap where our characters last were, and go through our hopes for each character one by one. We don't really know what the soul of this book will be. So hopefully you find this one enjoyable? We have Eric (Chaos), Alyx (FeatherWriter), Shannon (Grey), and Matt (Comatose)!

  16. Feel free to make a bug report in Arcanum forum then. (And also try and avoid copying the buttons )
  17. I don't think it is limited.
  18. Just so you know, Karger, you can just press Copy and it'll copy the whole text of the WoB.
  19. Just wanted to give you a quick update that the podcast is coming out this week, but it'll be a late Friday or early morning Saturday podcast.
  20. Yeah, unfortunately working overtime and a half (again this semester), I got sick last weekend/early this week and that killed a lot of time. I maybe could get it done by Sunday but I have a lot of other work to do as well. But! It will be on SA4 predictions and should be a larger episode than usual.
  21. Soooooo I think this will actually need to be delayed until next Friday
  22. Not necessarily. In a big argument people might just upvote only their "crew" and then that leads to a lot more hurt feelings and cliquishness. I go back and forth as to whether reactions or these being public would actually help. Seeing who upvoted what definitely could worsen things in contentious situations.
  23. I would still like to know what actual advantages the app would have? What are the benefits for doing this? This has never been adequately explained to me.
  24. Friends, there is no need to reply and get on people's cases about topic necromancy. Firstly, many very old topics have already been closed and I deemed OB stuff and on to be okay. I see no reason why one should make a new topic when there's a perfectly fine one here. Relax on complaining about topic necromancy. Don't post off topic, instead just report and we will evaluate. Sure, the topic is a bit old, but it's not like there's been new Stormlight to read. It's not like it's pre OB or 2014 (and in fact those topics that old should already be locked, and this not an issue). Please carry on, if people like.
  25. I am not enthusiastic about an app. I discuss why I am not enthusiastic about an app in this post (which links to an earlier post): An app is a long term commitment of time and resources that do not seem worthwhile to me. I would really need to be persuaded of the purpose of an app to spend any time on it.
