  1. @Zas678 Wow. Those five are some dedicated souls. Camping out an entire week!? Especially in below freezing temps? Also, I'm surprised BYU allowed a line to form during the school week when tons of traffic passes by that area. I was thinking the earliest they would let people camp there would be Friday afternoon. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  2. Ok. Transcript is finally here and approved. I've put it in first post of this topic/thread. Enjoy!
  3. @overlordjebus No problem. I have updated my Q&A post from earlier to match the audio transcription. There's further detail to most of the questions I asked, plus one correction to what I heard vs what Brandon said (on the Shadesmar/CR one).
  4. FYI: I just placed a link to the audio from Brandon's spotlight panel yesterday on my first post of this thread. I've also put placeholders there for the WoB's that will be available at some point...hopefully soonish. As soon as we have the green light from Peter, I'll put them up there.
  5. Sorry, all for the confusion. This is a new request from Brandon (having Peter review the Q&A transcript) that we're trying to figure out how to deal with. I'm handing over the baton to the mods and new WoB crew to take care of this as I'm just a newb. But like Argent said, this might be a few days process until the transcript gets posted.
  6. Great! I'm glad I can make some people happy. I'm in the middle of getting the audio from today's signing ready to go, though I probably won't get it up until tomorrow. Plus I'm waiting on the mod's response to how I should handle the audio. To tide you over, as promised, here's my paraphrased answers that he gave to the questions I asked. (Bonus: No RAFOs!) EDIT 9/25: I've edited the answers with the transcribed text directly from the audio. In the battle of the Tower, Eshonai fights Dalinar and when she recognizes him she tries to speak with him, possibly to negotiate. What would have happened if Kaladin hadn't arrived then to 'save' him? A: There's a chance they would have worked it out. Not a really good one... but there's a chance. What information would Hoid have given Vin if Kelsier didn't scare her away from him (Hoid) in HoA? A: So, he would not have revealed terribly much of use to her. He was there trying to find out things for him. What would have the Lord Ruler done with the power at the well if Vin hadn't killed him? Would he have been able to fix the problems he initially caused for Scadrial? A: By that point in the Lord Ruler's life, he probably would not have. He would like the world where it is, and he was not 100% cognizant of how far he had fallen from his original ideals. So, it would not have been, I think, a good thing. It may have been not as bad as the disaster that followed, in fact I know it would not have been, but in the end, Scadrial needed to go through that eventually. So it would have just delayed that. He would have done something with it (the power). Maybe with the Southern Continent or something. But he wouldn't have fixed anything, he probably would have made things a little worse. Can you burn a metal wrapped in another metal if both are allomantic metals? example, If I got a ball of bronze and wrapped it or coated it in steel, could I burn the bronze? What about a non-allomantic metal? A: No, you're gonna have to work your way through the outer one. It's gonna depend on how thick it is, and stuff. But I would say, if you wrap it in a non-Allomantic metal, that's not good for getting to the metal. It's viable, but it just depends on how thick it is, and things like that. Like, sometimes things have been plated to keep the access to the metal off, but usually you would want to do that in aluminum, to make sure. What happens when a Reshi Island dies? What do they people do? What happens to the corpse? What happens to the gemheart? A.So, it becomes that big old shell, and eventually... shells, they last a long time, but people are gonna move off of it.And, yes, people will try to get the gemheart. How does the cognitive realm seemingly have it's own flora and fauna? A. You'll see, there's actual... there's an actual ecosystem in Shadesmar.Yeah. Well, think about it this way. The places people are thinking about will create landscape that this stuff can grow on. Where they're not thinking about it, there's just not going to be anything there, so nothing is going to grow. Note: Apologies for this one, I had posted what I *thought* I heard Brandon say (which was "the places people aren't thinking of will create a landscape"). Thank goodness for audio.
  7. Got in and was able to ask my questions. Regarding the transcriptions he said that he just wants to start looping Peter in on these to just verify that he's not giving bogus answers. He mentioned he thought he was inaccurate on an answer he gave last night,but couldn't remember the answer. As far as my questions, I don't think there were any groundbreaking answers, but I thought they were interesting. I'll give more detail when I have time after the con. I'll turn the audio files back to being available now that I know there wasn't anything super secret that he let slip.
  8. Yeah. The more I'm thinking about it I wonder if he was talking about the audio recorded last night rather than future recordings. I wonder if he said something he wished he hadn't last night. I'm in line now for the signing and will clarify with him. In other news I'm a little worried I might miss him again before they kick him out as I believe Dan Wells needs the booth after. I had to lose my place in line as to go drop off my phone to record.
  9. As I just put down the recorder for the second signing, Brandon asked that the transcription (when done) be sent to @PeterAhlstrom ...so he can review/edit it for anything inaccurate or too spoilerly I assume. For now, just to make sure I'm following proper protocol I've disabled public access to that Google Drive link. Once I get the go-ahead I'll make it available again. Peter: What's the MO with this type of thing? Can I make the audio available? Or just limit it to a few? Any other tips? Thanks!
  10. Ok. Understandable and no problem. I just deleted the attachment in case of storage issues. Here's the shared google drive link:
  11. Here's the audio for the first day's signing. I've only listened to about 3-4 minutes of it - mostly to make sure you could hear the Q&A over the loud floor crowd. You can hear Brandon pretty well, but sometimes the people in line are harder to hear. Like I mentioned above, I don't have time in the foreseeable future to transcribe this, so I'll see if anyone volunteers...at least transcribing the relevant/good WoBs. Question for you more experienced sharders: Is this the place to upload? Should I upload all 3 days worth of stuff at once place?
  12. I've been to his comic con panels in the past and for the general Q&A he'll strongly discourage any spoilery questions in that broad of a setting. If you really want to ask him a question like that, you'd probably need to go to his signing line. I could be wrong and you're not planning a spoiler question, so just ignore me. See here for the times of his signings: https://brandonsanderson.com/salt-lake-comic-con-ldsppa/
  13. @Sunchicken His site says 2:30-3:45, but I'm not sure how accurate it would be. When I was at his booth yesterday they only had times for that day (Thursday) listed. He added an hour to what his site schedule said, so I'm betting he will be there from 2:30-3:45, but it wouldn't surprise me if he's there earlier or later. Either way, I wasn't able to get to him either. I got in line at 7:40 pm and I was almost to him at about 8:50 pm when the comic con staff said the floor was closing at 9pm and so she just said he could only sign our books and/or do photos, but no questions. It was just the conveyor belt signing . He was then quickly whisked away by the con staff as the clock struck 9pm. (That line was long...not surprisingly. It's only going to get longer as the con progresses...as far as what I've observed with SLCC.) That said, I did get a recording of the whole line. I'll upload that soon. Disclaimer: I don' t have time to transcribe it, so I'll leave that to someone else. I'll get back in line today and see if I can't ask my questions. I appreciate all newly submitted questions yesterday, but these are the ones I'm going to attempt to ask (maybe someone else can ask the newly submitted ones?): In the battle of the Tower, Eshonai fights Dalinar and when she recognizes him she tries to speak with him, possibly to negotiate. What would have happened if Kaladin hadn't arrived then to 'save' him? What information would Hoid have given Vin if Kelsier didn't scare her away from him (Hoid) in HoA? What would have the Lord Ruler done with the power at the well if Vin hadn't killed him? Would he have been able to fix the problems he initially caused for Scadrial? Can you burn a metal wrapped in another metal if both are allomantic metals? example, If I got a ball of bronze and wrapped it or coated it in steel, could I burn the bronze? What about a non-allomantic metal? What happens when a Reshi Island dies? What do they people do? What happens to the corpse? What happens to the gemheart? How does the cognitive realm seemingly have it's own flora and fauna? Now that this thread has a little more attention, If someone already has a WoB on these or feel like there's something really wrong about them, let me know.
  14. @Sunchicken: Go ahead and ask that one. I'm already swimming in questions.
  15. All: Based on Pagerunner's advice, I'll probably just stick with what's been suggested so far along with my own questions (and maybe some from the ultimate list). I'm already feeling overwhelmed with questions and I'm only one man and I don't want to clog up the signing line by taking up tons of time with Brandon. So, not to be a buzzkill at the party I started, unless you have a question you can't live without asking ASAP, let's close this down to any new submitted questions for me to consider asking. I'd rather that this thread be filled with the transcribed Q&As than un-asked questions that I probably won't get to. Plus, there's the Ultimate List, already that was made for this type of thing. @Pagerunner: Thanks for the advice and pointing me in the right direction with things. @Blightsong: I'll try to record as much as I can during his signings (no promises, though, as there's a bunch of panels I want to attend). It seems Brandon is fine with things if I just leave the phone/recorder on the signing desk, right? Anything else I should know about the protocol of recording?
