  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 So far in order to obtain some unpublished works of Brandon's, you'd have to email him through his sites, and his assistants would distribute them.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! Edit as of March 16th, 2022: This is all still going! We've gone through over 250 pages of replies distributing. It's just that we remove posts here once we send them out.
  2. 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.
  3. This episode of SpanReads, we're getting into the many cosmere implication of The Well of Ascension! This episode is FULL cosmere spoilers! This week, we have Mi'chelle (firstRainbowRose), Jessie (Lady Lameness), Ian (Weiry), Matt (Comatose), Kadie (Aon Ene), and Eric (Chaos). SpanReads is a weekly series, coming every Wednesday! Check out our 2022 schedule here: https://www.17thshard.com/news/features/were-starting-a-reread-podcast-may-4th-starting-with-mistborn-1-r819/ We will also be posting SpanReads a few days early on our Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/17thshard Thumbnail art is not a cover this time.

  4. Did you find an error in Rhythm of War? Report it here so hopefully it can be fixed in later editions.
  5. Jim Butcher, Small Favors. I read both Proven Guilty and White Night yesterday, and they were really good, especially Proven Guilty.
  6. I mean, I don't work at Cloudflare nor know where you live, so I don't know how much I can illuminate things
  7. Cloudflare is a Content Delivery Network which helps on a variety of things. Probably is easiest for me to just link this: https://www.cloudflare.com/learning/what-is-cloudflare/ It would indeed have nodes all over the place so would display a city near you. That's how it works.
  8. Paleo went to bed and left me with a few instructions. I believe the situation has been resolved perhaps now. For some additional context, our particular node we were on was hit with some heavy IO failure of some kind, and moving us to a different node seems to have resolved things.
  9. Two bits of news for you today! Firstly, Brandon will be doing a spoiler stream tomorrow at 6pm Mountain Time on his YouTube channel. We weren't sure if there would even be one this month--he has tried to do spoiler streams in June and December--but here it is! You can post and vote for questions in this Reddit thread. In other news, Dynamite has announced on its Indiegogo campaign for the White Sand omnibus today a delay on the printing for the omnibus. Instead of the original June/July timeframe they had initially announced, it appears that the printer has pushed them back for getting things like the deluxe slipcase ready. This has resulted in the physical books pushed back to shipping to October. The books are finished, with their designs all approved, fortunately. Despite the book's complete state, digital editions for the omnibus will go out in August. It is somewhat amusing how late the English version of the omnibus is, considering the Spanish edition of the White Sand omnibus came out in print and digitally in May, but hey, not much Dynamite can do about it at this stage. Dynamite also discussed how to purchase the omnibus if you missed the Indiegogo campaign. Preorders are starting on Dynamite's site, but the first edition print run will focus on the Indiegogo backers, with few additional copies. However, eventually the omnibus will be available in normal retail channels, but those will happen sometime in 2023.
  10. This episode of SpanReads, we're doing a dive into the magic systems of The Well of Ascension, especially Feruchemy!

  11. I'm moving this to the Cosmere Discussion board because I expect spoilers to be very plausible.
  12. It's time for an episode we recorded ages ago, long before we even got the blurb for this book: Lost Metal Predictions! The final Wax and Wayne book is finally coming November. Here are our predictions and hopes for the book! Also, so so many mechanical tangents. What can we say, we are excited to talk Mistborn and the mysteries on Scadrial. Today we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), David (Windrunner), Rosemary (Kaymyth), and Matt (Comatose)! We have a cover for The Lost Metal now! Here's the US edition, which we put in the thumbnail: https://www.tor.com/2022/05/26/cover-reveals-the-lost-metal-a-mistborn-novel-by-brandon-sanderson/ We referenced two older episodes in this one: Southern Scadrians - https://youtu.be/qej6ljwWHlE Atium and the Atium Retcon (where we discuss the Preservation switching business) - https://youtu.be/OZxrgxN-HRw 00:00 Introductions 1:23 Biggest Hope and what is the Lost Metal? 9:43 Genre and plotlines 21:39 Harmony and His Sword (& Tangents) 51:04 Kelsier 56:25 The Set 1:07:38 Southerners 1:15:59 Atium 1:24:41 Wax 1:39:02 Wayne 1:58:10 Marasi 2:05:29 Steris 2:15:31 Final Thoughts 2:18:41 Who's That Cosmere Character If you like our content, support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/17thshard For discussion, theories, games, and news, come to https://www.17thshard.com Come talk with us and the community on the 17th Shard Discord: https://discord.gg/17thshard Want to learn more about the cosmere and more?

  13. 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.
  14. Awesome movie! Jess and I watched the original a few days before seeing Maverick, and man, the original was just okay. All in all, Maverick was a far superior film, and a better execution of the first film's concept. It having a central plot really helped to ramp up the tension, and the plane sequences were incredible. I don't have too much time to watch movies, but I thoroughly loved it and would recommend it to anyone.
  15. Yeah, this is a daily occurrence. Report them and we have easy ways to nuke them, but reporting notifies every moderator there is a problem, and we can get rid of them quickly.
  16. This episode of SpanReads, we're talking about the characters in Well of Ascension, and you bet there's going to be a lot of discussion of everyone's favorite, Zane!

  18. Yeah I am moving this to the secret project board. Not a big deal though.
  19. Secret Project stuff can only be in the Secret Project forum. I have moved this.
  20. Hi all, post your reactions to the third Legion story, Lies of the Beholder, here.
  21. Hi, I just wanted to comment that we've seen this message, and are discussing this.
  22. Hi there! I have removed the Taravangian Odium spoiler in the topic title. Since those can be seen outside the forum in a variety of ways, we can't have big spoilers in topic titles. Sorry about that! @Rg2045 No comments on Secret Projects are allowed outside the Secret Project forum outside of spoiler tags. We need to allow people to go into those blind if people wish
  23. Hi there. You're looking for the Stormlight Archive board. The 17th Shard Discussion forum is for discussion about the website itself, not book discussion. I have moved this to the appropriate place.
  24. Hi there. You're looking for the Cosmere Discussion board. The 17th Shard Discussion forum is for discussion about the website itself, not book discussion. I have moved this to the appropriate place.
  25. The final Mistborn Era 2 book, The Lost metal, comes out November, and there's still so much to discuss on the previous book, The Bands of Mourning. Today, we are talking about the Southern Scadrians: their history, how they survived, their culture and religion, and then we discuss in depth the Sovereign's temple and the Bands themselves. This episode we have Eric (Chaos), Evgeni (Argent), Joshua (jofwu), Marvin (Paleo), and Payden (Otto Didact)!
