  1. Question something of topic: Who is that Scythe you guys are talking about? I didn't read the White Sand Comics yet, but I did read the unpublished book, and I really can't recall that name, and neither did I find anything on the coppermind when searching for that name... Somebody care to explain?
  2. I suppose you can look at the "Warrior of Fire" like that, but still, just calling it Tje Well of Ascension (so "Die Quelle der Erhebung" for example) would be way better. I still dont like the current title, but whatever. In the book itself, hes called "Held aller Zeiten", so Hero of all Time, which is totally fine (the new publisher actually calls the book just like that). Why the other title, i really dont know. I forgot about the titel of Warbreaker, good catch. Surprised you already checked that. Its called "Sturmklänge" which translates to Stormsounds, or Sounds of the Storm. But why? No idea. A breath, for example, is "Hauch", which translates to... when you gently breath on something, for example. But its related, so thats really fine. The only thing you could relate to a storm, is the uprising in the palace... but then again, why the sound? I really cannot explain why they did that. Interestingly, this namechanges were all of the same publisher. The only other books they released was Elantris (here the title is the same) and alloy of law. Word to word translated, it would be "Legierung des Gesetzes", but its called "Jäger der Macht" which means hunter of the power. So again, not really good. But I dont think this publisher is releasing any new Sanderson books. Other interesting fact: The stormlight books are each splitted in 2 books in German, so theres already 6 (the second part of Oathbringer to be released), but the titles are fine here
  3. I read multiple books of Sanderson in German (Mistborn Era 1, Way of Kings, Warbreaker, Elantris, Steelheart), before I switched to English. I switched because I didn’t want to wait for the book to release, as the translation take a long time (or at least it feels like it, when I know the book is already released in English). Overall, the books seemed translated really well, the conversations felt like an actual conversation, and also the “special terminology”, like Allomancy, BioChroma and just the cosmere-magic in general made sense / didn’t sound weird. I have only 2 issues with the translations, both regarding Mistborn: -End of book 1, Vin didn’t inhale mist. She just really flaired her metal. But in book 3, at the very end fighting all the Inquisitors, she did. So I was really confused when it said “she inhaled the mists, like when she killed TLR”. -Names of the books For some the translation seems okay, for some it’s really weird. Some of the names are overworked, as the book is now sold by a new publisher. First the original name, then the german name, and then the german name translated back to English (so you see why it’s nonsense): The final empire Kinder des Nebels Children of the Mist (seems okay, regarding it’s the first book of Mistborn) The well of ascension Krieger des Feuers Warrior of fire (I don’t understand to this day how they came up with that, and that one is not gonna change with the new publisher. Any idea why that name?) Hero of ages Herrscher des Lichts Ruler of the Light (with A LOT of creativity, a little related to the original name)
  4. I didn't think about it that way yet, but I have to admit, that it should be like you say, and they always draw from the Dor. However, it's said that Nightblood keeps consuming more and more (the "Investiture consumed per minute" increases over time). So, probably the natural "Elantrian-Investiture" without Aons would hold for a short time, but Nightblood would quickly draw to much Investiture
  5. A Vessel is the person who is actually holding a shard (for example, Ati, Leras, Vin at the end of HoA) A Sliver is somebody who held a large part of a shard (hard to say how much exactly is required), and let go of it. The Lord Ruler was a Sliver, as he held the power at the Well and used it. Vin didn't become a Sliver at the Well because she didn't really hold it, and just realesed it. If she would have used it, she would have become a Sliver as well. Also, if you're a Vessel (current Shardholder) and you let go of the power you become a Sliver as well. Secret History Spoiler:
  6. I'm not sure about that Stormlight would not be able to heal damage caused on the Cognitive / Spiritual Realm. A normal Shardblade is said to cut a living persons soul (or Spiritweb). We know little about the spiritual Realm, but it might be that the shardblade "cuts on the spiritual Realm" (as it obviously doesn't on the physicial, on a living object). As Kaladin could heal a shardblade-wound, it seems like spiritual damage can be healed. But anyways, the only way how I see Hoid surviving bein struck by Nightblood, is when he himself is invested enough so he can't be cut by it (like a full metalmind couldn't be cut by a shardblade). But if he really is hit, I don't think he's able to heal it. It's like, you get instantly eliminated from all 3 realms, so no time to heal. So either you can avoid damage when being hit (by being invested) or you're done. But of course, just what I think would happen
  7. Some mentioned before, that it the Nicrosil Feruchemy (specially with compounding) might be a "problem", as it to easily grants access to being a Fullborn. Especially considering, what Fullborn said before, when using Hemalurgy, only 2 spikes are required if you have nothing when you start, and you're there. But don't forget: You need a Medailon / Metalmind with all the abilities stored. We don't even know exactly how Medailons are made, and neither do the Northern Scadrians. And even the Southerns can't do it, as they said the best they've achieved is one that grants 3 or 4 powers at once, which is far away from 32. How the Bands are made, so there are no interactions, is still unclear. So I wouldn't be worried that the Fullborn Status is now to easy achieved. In theory it is maybe easy. But remember, in theory, it's also easily achievable to collect Breaths to get on God King level, you only gotta convince some thousand people to give you their breath. It's accessable for averyone. But in reality? Still a big challenge.
  8. I don't think that's that big of a deal. My head is partially shaven (something like Ragnar, or Björn, from Vikings). I can do that by myself without a double mirror. So, i don't see anything at the back of the head, I just feel with my hand where I have to go over again. And I guess you could do your whole head like that, if you practice a little. And true, we have better shaving tools then back then (or, easier to use without cutting yourself), but even if Marsh uses a knife and cuts himself, he can just heal it with gold compounding. So, here I really think you don't have to search really far, as the answer is nothing special, or magic related
  9. Even if Adamantium can be manipulated, that does not mean Wolverine has a problem. The metals are inside of him, so most Coinshots / Mistborn wouldn't be able to push on any of that. Even if an Inquisitor might see it (so like Weltall said, stealth is impossible), I don't think a normal Inquisitor would be able to push on that. I don't think we've seen one doing that. As I recall, only TLR and Wax with the Bands could push on traces this small and inside somebody. Or am I missing somebody?
  10. Welcome to the Forum! So, you need to be able to use Feruchemy and Allomancy on the same metal (for example, Miles with Gold, Lord Ruler with all metals). Let's take as example Miles Hundredlives. He could normally burn Gold, which would show him an alternate version of himself. However, if he stores Health inside said Gold, it becomes a Goldmind. If he now burns this said Goldmind, it doesn't give the normal Allomantic effect anymore, but it is like a new metal. By burning he get's the stored attribute, in his case Health, about ten times back. If you want more details about it, I suggest you go to the Coppermind Wiki and search for Compounding!
  11. Hi all, like the title sais, I have a question about Copperminds. It's an issue, which i thought about for a while. If it has been discussed here already, then I'm sorry. So, obviously you store memories into this metalminds. Now, what I'm confused about: When you store (or better stored) a memory, is this then gone from your mind, and only existend in the metalmind (like the memory-thing of Dumbledore in Harry Potter) or is it basically like a copy of the memory, and inside the metalmind, it stays accurate, like you've stored it, and in your mind it just fades, like normal memories do? I'm not sure why, but I always thought it is like the first possibility. But if it is like that, then I don't understand this: If you've stored it away, then all of it is gone, so how will you remember ever putting it away? And if you don't remember that, you wont know that it is available or you've ever had it, so you're not going to ever look at it again
  12. I've seen this subject we're going to a lot here in the forum. I think we don't have to discuss about that anymore, it's obvious, that the Lord Ruler was ridiculously strong, and if he used his full power, he would have killed them with ease. The only reason why he lost, was that he underestimated his opponents, and his arrogance (which, both are a bit relatable, after being for 1000 years a "god")
  13. I think he knew about those "new" metals of Era 2, like you said, Cadmium, or Nicrosil, as during the time at the Well of Ascension he learned basically all about Allomancy. But the biggest problem with this metals is the process to produce them. The technology was simply not far enough to produce this metals. Maybe he could have produced some of it during his Ascension, but I guess he just didn't do that.
  14. @Zellyia, sorry, but I can't really remember what you mean by that. Who bonded to Spren? (except, you count Nightblood as a kind of spren, then I get what you mean). To the upper comment, I still think Voidbinding is what the Fused us. What Renarin uses, I still think is Surgebinding, because of the simple reason, that he fuels from Stormlight, and not Voidlight. That some of his abilities are corrupted, yes I agree with that. But of course, we can't be for sure, just my opinion.
  15. A better example for that this is possible is also in Secret History (so, Spoilers ahead):
