  1. You are correct that this is tied to Defending Elysium. I'll continue precedence and spoiler tag this discussion. (Caveat: I haven't read DE since before Skyward came out, so my terms may not be specific to what is used in world)
  2. Interesting point, since we know the Lord Ruler didn't hate Feruchemy, he just didn't want Feruchemy and Allomancy mixing. They Synod was not a threat to the Lord Ruler at all, so long as they stayed secluded.
  3. @robardin I somehow completely forgot about the scene / recollection of when Marsh became an Inquisitor. Definitely seems like most of his spikes were new.
  4. I'm not sure about the rest of your post, but this is something I'm pretty sure I remember: when an Inquisitor died, their spikes were kept in blood which reduced or eliminated the decay of the power. I believe we saw the blood in Secret History, and there's a WoB or annotation about blood reducing the decay. Couldn't quick find a specific WoB, but the first few results in this search imply blood will completely stop Hemalurgic decay.
  5. I agree this is a possibility, but I don't quite believe it. He couldn't make Spensa his pilot because before he could only make certain decisions on his own. Other decisions had to be made by his pilot, such as shooting weapons and changing pilots. Spensa convinced M-Bot that he could change his pilot on his own, and M-Bot finally relented towards the end. Now that he is OK with changing his pilot on his own, if Spensa were to die, he could make Rodge his pilot.
  6. Nice. I didn't remember that Cobb's first name is Matthew.
  7. Interesting point about Cobb (is Cobb is first name?) and Judy (and Zeen): their call names don't start with the first letter/sound of their first names like all of the new recruits do.
  8. Dark is a German TV show that is currently on US Netflix. It's got two seasons and a very complicated relationship web, and parentage isn't always clear. I highly recommend checking it out. It is a bit grim, and because it's Netflix where "anything" goes I'll also throw out a nudity warning (some, but not a lot) (i.e. don't watch it in public).
  9. Someone has been watching too much Dark.
  10. Not sure about the game you're talking about, but I do think there's going to be a Stormlight Archive flavored version of a newer game: Call to Adventure. I kickstarted the original, with a promised Name of the Wind expansion. One of the updates mentions art direction for a Stormlight Archives expansion has begun (which does mean the actual release is probably still a ways away).
  11. Fair enough. Never looked into it. My mental image will probably still be the pitbull / bulldog mix though. (Just like I incorrectly view Kelsier with dark hair (he has blonde hair!)).
  12. I agree with @Quantus, I believe that making an "illusion" of shardplate that is solid is exactly how a Lightweaver gets Shardplate. We still don't know what real shardplate is (i.e. that worn by Radiants), but I doubt it's a physical object like the (for lack of a better term) "dead" Shardplate that is basically the only kind we've seen (i.e. there isn't some spren Quartermaster doling out Shardplate when a Radiant reaches a certain ideal). Similar to how Radiant Shardblades are their spren taking physical form, and "dead" Shardblades are spren stuck in that physical form. Therefore it could make sense that Lightweaver Shardplate is them being able to make a physical "illusion" of pure investiture. If any of the "dead" Shardplate came from Lightweavers, it's possible that it is stuck in phsyical form much like the "dead" Shardblades are.
  13. I've always pictured him like a large pitbull maybe, but more bulldog as well? A pitbull / bulldog mix, if you will. Like this, but even larger.
  14. I asked Brandon about Katarotam during the Skyward Reddit AMAs, didn't get much from him though There's also this slightly older WoB that mentions Katarotam. At this point, my money is on us not getting more information on Katarotam. The name is only mentioned once, not just by Kaladin, but by anyone. I honestly think the name was supposed to have been removed during drafts, but never was. I'm not holding my breath for Katarotam to be important or make an appearance.
  15. This is just a guess, but I would assume that Brandon at least knew that Hoid took a bead. Brandon may not have known he was going to write that scene, but from what I've seen of Brandon's process, he knows more about the character's actions than is published.
