  1. Eshonai. Her arc was wonderful, she was beginning to fight against Odium's influence, she fought Adolin on seemingly even footing, and I wanted more from her mother.
  2. With the revelation that Odium could be seen as Passion, and the older theory that Odium+Honor would be Justice... Honor focuses on creating bonds, and Odium possibly being Passion, could their joining create... Love?
  3. Well, damnation. Was a neat idea! Ty for the link to the WoB. I kinda liked the idea that Odium was passion, but his own hatefulness influenced the shard. Ah well, back to my ponderings. I'm beginning to feel that between WoBs, and more books, that we are running out of things to discover. And then Brandon hits us with a new book, and blows our minds every time!
  4. I agree, that does sound terrifying! However, Odium, or Passion, could be viewed as "Strong Overpowering Emotion", while Honor could be seen as "Creates Bonds Between People". If Harmony could have been Discord, why couldn't Honor+Passion be Love? Or even Tyranny.
  5. Postin due to play it title, have not read thread. (Rarely do this, but...) Saw the Shard-weapon should be 1 piece, and thought... Why not a rail-gun? Jasnah can create bullets, or even the magnets themselves for it, and fire like crazy. Possible question to ask Brandon... Can a soulcaster create magnets?
  6. Make Roshar Great Again.
  7. Depression is insidious. On your happiest day, it's like a miniature anchor on your heart. You can't escape it. In the palace, I saw a Kaladin who couldn't kill either side, as it would have meant killing people he had taken responsibility for, no matter his actions. I wasn't disappointed, I was actually just surprised. I saw his freeze the moment he recognized the Parshmen who walked in. It fits, and it made sense. Still a bit surprising, but Kaladin's reaction to it was not.
  8. Could simply be bad information. Kaladin was reported killed by Amaram.
  9. I think that's been the strongest theory on Plate anyone has put forth yet. It's been the popular theory since WoR I think? To expand, Lifespren for Edgedancers, logicspren? for Elsecallers. We've seen Radiants attract large amounts of these, except the logicspren, that's more of a guess. Have Renarin or the Dustbringer/Releaser ever attract large amounts of a particular spren?
  10. I think Jasnah is just smart, really smart, and is similar to Taravangian on a smart day. Someone can be smart and overly logical without having some kind of "disorder".
  11. I think we have several Radiants who are very close to Plate, and by their actions, and attitudes, we're seeing them draw the building blocks of that Plate to themselves. Kaladin attracting windspren, Shallan creationspren, Dalinar gloryspren, etc.
  12. I just assumed the Dawnshards were Radiant Spren bonded to Listeners. That theory went to rust with a quickness. I saw thinking massive sound based effects... basically what Kabsal did with the plates, but on a city-wide scale.
  13. Do we know that the last Bondsmith to Bond the Sibling didn't abandon their Oaths? I do like this theory though.
  14. If the other Heralds had gotten off their asses instead of charging headfirst into insanity, his 4500 years may have meant more. Still angry with all of them!
  15. Mind. Blown. It would greatly depend on the person, and their particular blade, however.
  16. Didn't Dalinar attract a metric ton of Gloryspren just before doing this? I thought of it all as him using the power of all those Spren to open the perpendicularity, by focusing, "binding", all the power all those Spren represented. Thus was enough to link all 3 realms, and so some of the pure power of the Spiritual was able to funnel through, much how the storms function, to refill gems, and allow passage across. Like Dalinar had just brute forced the Cosmere out of sheer force of will, and the glory that came with that. Edit: Dalinar was told he would be a Radiant without shards, plural. Maybe this is his trade-off for Plate? He gathered a LOT of Gloryspren.
  17. I like the idea of Hoid needing to be in specific locations at specific times, for unknown reasons. When you can't know why you're somewhere, you don't have time to dawdle, because the reason could pop up at any time. I think that's why he bumped into Shallan in the first place, so he can learn about her, so he can learn how to attract a Cryptic. Now, he's joined with another piece of investiture, a piece of Honor/Cultivation, presumably his whole goal. I doubt Hoid has the freedom for anything but tiny detours.
  18. I'm unsure if this seems more like grasping at straws or lining up trends. But speculation is fun. Kharbranth's libraries are ancient, so perhaps a group based on scholarly activities? Vedenar, tends to be lots of gardens, and it's people are more expressive in their emotions, specifically revelry. Urithiru makes me think of the Bondsmiths. Reshi? Independent, nomadic, laid back, accepting of things outside their control. Rall Elorim? Interesting, but feels like a possibly false pattern. Maybe we have it backwards? Maybe certain cultures fostered people who generally lined up with a particular Order, but it was a trend, not an absolute?
  19. Any Death Rattles come true? Bet there was!! Victory! We stand atop the mount! We scatter them before us! Their homes become our dens, their lands are now our farms! And they shall burn, as we once did, in a place that is hollow and forlorn. Collected on Ishashan 1172, 18 seconds pre-death, by the Silent Gatherers. Subject was a lighteyed spinster of the eighth dahn. Humans killing Listeners after crossing the mountains and conquering? Any others?
  20. Did great. If her original Radiant is a Herald, I'd imagine the whole process would be much easier. Could just be that it would take some Stormlight to fuel a rekindling of her Spren Spiritweb, and then initiating a bond afterward. Maybe it's as easy as someone swearing the Oaths, fitting personality, and a bunch of light while holding an Honorblade. Possibly even the Bondsmith Honorblade specifically. It's a big "RAFO" I think, but I am convinced that Adolin will be the one to do it. He just fits as an Edgedancer in my mind.
  21. The ending of the Szeth story arc was.... not there. I feel like we missed a lot with him, but I did enjoy his scenes with Lift.
  22. Hmmm. I don't think that we'll get an Unmade as a Bondsmith-Spren, and I think that, because so far, Voidspren take control while Spren give control. I argue that Glys is different, and in fact a corrupted High Spren, not a Voidspren, thus why Renarin is given a fair amount of control over his actions, minus the fits. And Glys suffers through those also.
  23. I'm still leaning towards him acknowledging that he's not responsible for protecting people from their decisions. The sacrifices others make are their right.
  24. Or conscripted as? Perhaps they moved there, and it all became associated with the Orders, but it was built before? Or, in a different form, before the Radiants "took over"? OR, maybe built from the wreckage of the original city? Ooh, ooh, OR! Or, it was constructed for Surgebinders, before they became actual Knights via the Oaths.
  25. Wouldn't say his Oaths off-screen due to importance? Shallan, Jasnah, Lift. All flashback characters, two of which whom we might see later, I'll grant. Renarin. I guess my block is the idea that Maya's original wielder needs to be involved in any attempt at bringing her back. Perhaps, that's not the case? Adolin DID listen to TWoK with his father before, he may have said Oath One after hearing it then, but he doesn't seem that broken. Perhaps that will come when he discovers the truth about how his mother died...
