  1. Wow. See if you can find it. Oh, minor WoT spoilers by the way. That word!!!
  2. When you realize on Koloss Head-munching Day that the best way to describe Koloss to normal people is: people on ultra-steroids. Think about it. Steroids (in excess) make you scary buff, violent, and unable to have kids. Sound familiar?
  3. So the question is having to fight a super powerful veteran or a super powerful rookie (scary for different reasons). Hmm, it depends on why the fight is happening. If there is no peaceful way to resolve it, the Radiant because they would make it quick. If the is, the Radiant because it would be easier to talk them out of it. Too many variables with the rookie. Would you rather be a Truthless wielding Nightblood or a hemalurgic Fullborn in a scenario where Rayse holds the shard(s) of Harmony? Edit for clarification: in the scenario, Rayse is not also Odium, but is still, you know, Rayse.
  4. Wow. I think it’s hilarious that someone resurrected my old thread. I made it when I was a young wart hog. My only comments now about it are: don’t forget I made the list before some books were published, and while Sadeas May have bee nice to his wife, don’t forget he goes to prostitutes (remember the in-sluts joke from Hoid?). Men don’t do that when they love their wives. Actually, after reading Oathbringer I am tempted to say flashback Dalinar. I want to, if only as a lesson that even the worst of people can repent and be good.
  5. I can see that. Though the fact that every (every?) Elantrian who is pushed over the edge has a mantra suggests to me something significant.
  6. So, it appears that the whole Hoed mantra thing is Cosmere-significant, and //it's been 6 months since Oathbringer release, but I don't know how the Spoiler rules have changed, etc. I have included someone else's theory in a link below. I don't actually believe that theory, but it contains relevant information: Perhaps being Hoed is related to Savantism somehow?
  7. When you dub putting dating women on hold "going malen" while you get your financial situation under control ...
  8. So, we know how Fused are really ancient members of the Parsh race who have a kind of immortality like that of the Heralds, where they go more and more insane (or something like that). But do we know how they attained that status? How would a new Parshendi aspire to be a Fused? Not get possessed and killed by one, but rather be able to return (or Return...) after dying and possess a new body? edit: do I still have to put [OB] in the title since it's been more than 6 months now since the release of Oathbringer?
  9. What's this about Endowment being at the end of the Well of Ascension? I read the "alternate ending" and I didn't see Endowment anywhere. The only hint of it was how Brandon said to "read Warbreaker." So what's this all about?
  10. I remember when I read LoTR for the first time as a kid my mom told me to skip the prologue. She herself had tried to get into LoTR but couldn't get past the prologue which is filled with a lot of detail (not all of which is relevant to the plot, etc.) and my dad told her "you always skip the prologue when you read LoTR, silly." Anyway, after Brandon Sanderson ... uh, no more prologue-skipping. They're not only plot-relevant but also EPIC.
  11. It is Sebarial. RShara's turn!
  12. It's not Siri. Third clue: The financial records of this character are somewhat dubious.
  13. It's not Shen. Second clue: This character does things which are frowned upon by the ambient society.
  14. OK, I'll start one but it's after midnight here so I'll go to bed. Perhaps this means lots of people can guess. First clue: This character is widely ignored (in world).
  15. Darnit! It was 50/50 and I guessed wrong. It's Heelis (unless you changed your answer to steer away from guesses like a troll, lol).
