  1. This one. If I get another: To Lift, "This is bacon. You're welcome."
  2. Someone had to say Words that we must all expect Yes, I am a Stick.
  3. It would be interesting if Cultivation ultimately decided she had to cultivate herself. Odium devoting tons of resources to crushing her, only to realize shattering her may set off events that lead to his own demise. Team Dalinar begging her to take a more direct role in the fight.
  4. I was going to say something else, but I really like this one. Granted, at this point and time Kel is probably over the whole TLR thing. He'd do it if he had to, of course. Because my Cosmere dream is still Cosmere Avenegers, regardless of who is permanently gone, gimme Vin.
  5. Whoever decided there would only be 9 pancakes in Tashikk. Slightly more serious, Zombie Sadeas, just so he can die again.
  6. I hope this is the right forum, and it's okay to link to other sites. If not, I apologize. Over on the Stormlight Reddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/Stormlight_Archive/comments/absjnj/stormlight_book_four_update_1/) Brandon posted his first update for book 4. I won't quote the whole thing, but he mentions spending the first two months starting yesterday creating an outline, then possibly posting a spoiler free version of it like he did with OB. He also mentions that a part of Kaladin's WoR arc was originally outlined to be in OB, which I cannot picture at all with how perfect Kal's WoR story was. Another interesting tidbit at the end, 'I'll leave you with a random tidbit to theorize about. I'm pretty sure that at my signing last week in Idaho Falls, I was unintentionally misleading about some of the things I said about Dalinar's powers (regarding infusing of spheres.) I was trying to talk around spoilers for book four...' I couldn't find anything on the events and signings page, anyone know what he's talking about?
  7. Yes, I believe so. But I also think the common in-world belief of 'fighting in the afterlife to reclaim the Tranquille Halls' will come into play at some point, even if it's not the afterlife.
  8. There are A LOT of things Brandon can do with the ending of book 5, including the above mentioned 'nothing major' option. I'm still a kind of sort of believer in the Tranquille Halls idea, where something is wrong with Roshar's afterlife, or the Tranquille Halls are an actual place etc. For the longest time I was partial to the idea that Kaladin would die defeating Odium's champion, only to wake up in Braize, leading to the revelation that the real reason for the Recreance was anyone with a nahel bond is bound to Braize just like the Heralds. I don't much believe that anymore. If I had to guess, I think there's mutual destruction between Dalinar's forces and Odium's, to such a degree that Roshar is either destroyed, or forced to be abandoned. (And as mentioned above, would make Lift's abilities even more handy - and her book is book 6.)
  9. I keep telling people, what's an in-world book we have a title to that seemingly serves no purpose? 'An Accountability of Virtue.'
  10. Thinking about predictions pre-Oathbringer, myself and many others thought Brandon would take the mysteries post WoR and spin them out over the course of the first arc of the SA. Well, he dumped everything in the extraordinary third book and created a bunch of new mysteries for us to theorize about and look forward to. I think the same thing is going to happen with book 4. Almost everything we have questions/theories about will be answered, and in doing so Brandon will leave us with a heap of currently not thought of questions and mysteries for book 5. So in book 4 I think we'll get: -What's happening at the Horneater Peaks -Ba Ado Mishram and most if not all of the remaining Unmade -What happened to the good Parshendi -The history of the Parshendi and what happened via the Radiant strike team in the past that trapped BAM -Adolin and Maya (please don't die Adolin) -Aimia -Shallan's continuing mental breakdown and final resolution (whatever that may be) -All things Ghostbloods -Resolutions to Nale and Ishar, or at least their anti-Dalinar armies And that's just off the top of my head. It wouldn't surprise me if Adolin and Shallan had a baby in the 1 year gap either. I think Dalinar killing Evi will be something taken care of in the 1 year gap. (He will undoubtedly mention it in the in-world book Oathbringer, plus to his sons beforehand.) Adolin and Renarin will reflect on it at some point in book 4, but it's not going to be a 'omg will Adolin and Renarin hate Dalinar now' plot point. If all that sounds like too much, just remember, we would have said the same thing about everything that happened in OB pre-release as well. But Brandon fit it all in.
  11. This is my biggest and only concern/pet peeve with SA so far, so this may turn into a mini-rant. Because the Recreance still makes no sense. Every single Knight Radiant deliberately goes out and kills their spren. Their constant companion, the one who knows all their secrets, the one who-as the Stormfather explained-holds a closer and more intimate bond than many a spouse. The KRs killed this-relationships like Kaladin and Syl-because of something that happened multiple MILLENNIA ago? How in damnation does that make sense? The last desolation happened over 4,000 years ago. The first desolation (when humans came to Roshar) was well, well, before that. Why in creation did the Knights Radiant give a flying cremling of a damnation about that? Because they not only gave it a thought, but they gave up their powers and killed their dearest companion spren. The the Stormfather does imply there is more. “It is more than that. My memory of all this is … strange. First, I was not fully awake; I was but the spren of a storm. Then I was like a child. Changed and shaped during the frantic last days of a dying god. But I do remember. It was not only the truth of humankind’s origin that caused the Recreance. It was the distinct, powerful fear that they would destroy this world, as men like them had destroyed the one before. The Radiants abandoned their vows for that reason, as will you.” But why would even the fear of destroying Roshar cause the KRs to mass murder their spren? Can't you just stop surgebinding? We haven't seen any (to my knowledge) overly addicting effects of Surgebinding, where Surgebinders HAVE to use their powers like an addiction. Can't you-with the massive amount of minds and powers, including an entirely different realm-come up with a different plan? Even the mass enslavement of the parsh doesn't seem like it would be enough, even coupled with the other possibilities. I can see it causing significant infighting amongst the KRs, but not mass spren murder and abandonment of duties. The only thing I can think of that makes some sense has to do with bonds. Specifically, we know Honor was going crazy towards the end. Maybe somewhere along the line the KRs gave an oath to fight the voidbringers. But because Honor went crazy and cared only (according to Odium) about the words of the oath and not the meaning behind it, suddenly the KRs were 'Honor bound' to kill humans instead of Odium's forces (mostly parsh.) I know there are many issues with that train of thought but it's really the only thing I can come up with. It still doesn't really explain Dalinar's vision of Feverstone Keep. The KRs lined up, stared the humans there down, and broke their bonds/abandoned their shards. The way that scene is presented, I always thought it was the KRs way of saying 'screw you guys, you're on your own.' If my brief theory above is correct at all, I can't see how that scene makes sense. Anyway, rant over. I really, really hope there is a LOT more to the Recreance then we've been told.
  12. Merry (belated) Christmas all!
  13. Wait, Jasnah's book is the conclusion to the whole series? I thought for sure the last two would go Ash then Taln. Really curious how Jasnah's flashbacks will play into the conclusion of the whole SA.
  14. I'm curious to see more of Nightblood, and not just because of all the obvious story potentials (and humor) Nightblood brings. The main characters now know of two not-shardblade Shardblades (Nightblood and Azure's,) and Moash's mystery knife seems to have some not-shardblade properties as well ('Moash pulled the yellow-white knife free, it trailed dark smoke and left a blackened wound.) Not to mention it either destroyed or captured Jez's soul. These pseudo (super?) 'Shardblades' are clearly going to play a major role in the future of SA, and I'm very curious to see the direction Brandon takes it. (Nightblood's first ever 'real' Shardblade encounter better not be against a Spren we know and love.)
  15. Definitely Sesemalex Dar because of Ishar. I think we'll see a fair amount of Shinovar as well. Regardless of whether or not Szeth begins his self-assigned mission in Book 4 as opposed to his book, Book 4 takes place one year after OB. There's no way Shinovar, holder of an Oathgate and 8 Honorblades, is ignored by the main cast.
