  1. Welcome! Glad you finally made the plunge Do I get points for getting the reference?
  2. Happy birthday!

  3. I've only watched the first 2 or 3 episodes. Those were unimpressive enough that I keep on forgetting to catch up. I'll probably watch the rest eventually, but the "omg I'm so excited I have to watch this as soon as it comes out" wore off pretty quickly. Honestly I think the show would work a lot better if it was about a new character, not Boba Fett. It just doesn't match the way I see the character at all. (I was not expecting them to make him a Traditional Honorable Good Guy)
  4. I don't know if giving gifts is traditional for Koloss Head Munching Day, but we got the best one this year
  5. I wouldn't anticipate shardblades having much to do with current Spren population numbers - all those 80-100 dead shardblades will represent deadeyes, who don't seem to be a part of normal spren society. The "tens of thousands" number would be for regular non-deadeyes spren, meaning that they're not connected to a shardblade in the physical realm. So if anything it just means that there's potential for there to be a LOT of radiants if all the spren ever decide to form bonds.
  6. The Mistborn tabletop roleplaying game (https://www.crafty-games.com/shop/mistborn-adventure-game/) has some info, and they released a supplementary book specifically about the Terris that would have more info: https://www.crafty-games.com/shop/terris-wrought-of-copper/ They're not always 100% canon, but they're approved by Brandon and tend to be pretty good. Even if you don't want to run their system you can use the info and world building materials they've got. I haven't read through my copy of Wrought of Copper in a while, so I can't remember specifically what they've got there, but someone else may remember more details. Edit: the book description page mentions this, which sounds like it may be what you're looking for:
  7. https://www.brandonsanderson.com/words-of-radiance-deleted-interlude-stick/ (This is a "deleted interlude" from Words of Radiance. You may not find it humorous if you haven't read Stormlight, but there shouldn't be any spoilers regardless)
  8. This thread has some good info on this:
  9. I enjoyed reading it mostly because it was "secret" but I didn't think it was very well written and I didn't enjoy the story itself. Just fyi. But for reference, I felt the same way about Way of Kings Prime. They seem of pretty comparable quality to me - if you enjoyed WoK Prime you'll probably enjoy Dragonsteel.
  10. I would hope that the site's running in UTC, but I have no evidence to support that it is. It's just convention to run websites/databases/etc. in UTC.
  11. I think a big question here is "would two different vessels of the same shard have metals that act differently?" As far as I know we don't have an answer to that. If the metal reflects the vessel, then yes, I would expect ettmetal to be more "harmonius." But if the metal is just a manifestation of the power itself in physical form, regardless of who holds the power, then it wouldn't surprise me that it's more "discordant." Given the way ettmetal acts it seems like the second explanation is more likely. It seems likely that anyone who held Ruin and Preservation would have highly reactive ettmetal as their godmetal, regardless of how they interpreted the shards. But I don't think we have confirmation on this either way. Rhythm of War Spoilers:
  12. In regards to forging to become an Elantrian, we have this wob: As far as other magical abilities go, we have this: (I cut out a bunch because this is a long one) As far as stealing stamps via Hemalurgy, I'm not sure. We do know that forging rewrites your spiritweb, and Hemalurgy rips off pieces of your spiritweb, so I would be inclined to think that you could steal the effects of a soulstamp with Hemalurgy.
  13. I think I've got another way to phrase this - let me know if I'm wrong. Imagine that I slow down time for everything around me. I can now walk around, interact with stuff, etc. and to everyone else it looks like I'm moving super fast. On the opposite side, if I speed up time for everything around me, now everyone else sees me moving super slowly. I think this is what the OP is proposing - the idea that storing/tapping "speed" is simply changing the way time flows for you, so that you interact with the world on a quicker or slower scale. I think one way to support this theory would be to look at mental speed. If this really is the way feruchemical steel works, then they would also be thinking "faster" (or slower) during this time. Since time slows/speeds up for them, everything they do (motion, thought, metabolism, etc.) would be effected. Do we have confirmation on whether tapping physical speed also speeds up your mind? I would assume so, since if your thinking didn't speed up you'd probably just crash into all sorts of stuff. But the fact that mental speed is a separate attribute that can be stored (zinc) makes me uncertain.
  14. Perhaps a stretch, but this has me wondering if this alien in the armor is a singer speaking to the rhythms.
