  1. I'm not sure this is explicitly saying that Jezrien is only 30. Kalak is saying that Jezrien looks young, like a man barely in his thirtieth year. It is quite possible he is in his forties but just looks younger.
  2. I've just seen the ones posted on 17th shard. Here: https://www.17thshard.com/news/brandon-news/bridge-four-poster-steel-alphabet-bar-pendants-and-yallfest-keynote-r547/ Below 'Bridge Four' it says 'Starring...' and then lists the names going clockwise from Kaladin. Also, Moash doesn't have a tattoo or scar on his forehead like the others.
  3. He's the one with the shardblade, right above Kaladin's left shoulder. The names at the bottom make it kind of clear.
  4. I just can't get over the little 'shimmy' dance move that Rock appears to be doing haha.
  5. I wonder why they didn't put Drehy in. I'd imagine him before Hobber and maybe Leyten.
  6. A couple of alternatives: A is for Adolin (if you want a hero over a villain) F is for Fabrial or Fused H is for Highstorm or Honor X - There is literally nothing that begins with x. Coppermind has 4 entries, all for offworld things. In this case you should do like a treasure map, such as: 'x marks the spot for Honor's perpendicularity'

    Shallan: Probably only Jasnah would have suspicions of her at this point. Given her history with Jasnah, trust may be tough to repair. Only way is to start being open. Wit: I'm not sure why Wit is even listed; I wasn't aware he was a part of the coalition. He has given some advice, but I didn't know he petitioned to be included. He has proven to be somewhat honest though by providing Jasnah with drawings of the Heralds which she verified. Szeth: I think by being a teacher and following his oaths he will gain trust. Also learning his history. People may not like what he did, but they have to understand the world has changed and they'll need every asset they can get. Renarin: Shallan here is the one that won't trust Renarin due to her relationship with Wit. Wit told Shallan to not trust anybody who can see the future. The rest of the coalition may not take this as seriously as Shallan because they like Renarin and he has never caused trouble. This will be a thorn in the Shadolin marriage.
  8. The shards are obviously in the hidden undersea caverns of Aimia.
  9. I am not convinced Rock feels he has a need to return with shards, especially with his religion and being a squire would enlighten him to the disrespectfulness of wielding the corpse of a dead spren. i like to think Rock will bond with the honor spren ‘Queen’. I forget what her name was, but she accepted Rock’s offering of stormlight. I think it’d be cool (given how there seems to be something special about him) that he bonds with another spren too, maybe a willshaper. I know there is a theory he may be a bondsmith candidate as well, this is just an alternative I just came up with.
  10. This is an April Fools joke.
  11. You can read the original chapters on Brandon's website. I read them myself last week. https://www.brandonsanderson.com/elantris-deleted-scenes-the-mad-prince/
  12. I have a hard time buying that just because the author hasn't gotten around to writing about 5 shards is a good reason to assume they are splintered. There are some other very good reasons why they aren't mentioned yet; i.e. he hasn't had time to write stories about all the planets yet, they just haven't come up yet in the story he is trying to tell, etc. Jumping to the conclusion that they are splintered because we haven't heard about them yet seems too far a leap. In Hoid's letters, he only mentions that Skai and Aona were killed by Odium. If Odium had killed 5 more vessels, Hoid would've mentioned their names too. If the shards had warred among each other and splintered each other, they would've gone against their isolationist policy which one of the shards (Endowment I think?) mentioned the trouble that Skai and Aona got themselves into by going to the same planet. These 5 shards were not mentioned as being in violation.
  13. I think it would be fun if Baxil was included in future books. I agree that the main points of the interlude were to introduce Shalash and some lore about the Nightwatcher, but Baxil could still pop up in the future if but for only a minor roll. I've started a reread of Oathbringer, and the other day I read the part where Adolin is talking with Gallant and he mentions Bashin's hounds being couped up. I was like, who is this Bashin? It seems like we were introduced to him the way he was so casually mentioned. So I Coppermined the fool, and was pleasantly surprised to find he has a pretty good size page. He was the hunt master and a scout as they marched towards Narak. He's also brought up more in Dalinar's interlude chapters which I hadn't got to yet but I remember his character if not his name. Point is, I think Brando can definitely find ways to bring him up again. He may not be some major character, but maybe somebody else who was touched by Cultivation (is courage nebulous enough for NW? maybe?). No way to know, but if he is, it will just increase my love for the books with the way Brandon can foreshadow and add detail with even minor characters like that.
  14. I like this poll. It's a shame I can't pick more than one though, as I find myself wanting to do many of these things. I picked like Kelsier, because I find myself thinking of ways that I can go outside or go play basketball and not get in trouble. I am fortunate to be able to work from home, but I find myself reading a lot (guess that hasn't changed), eating a lot (guess that hasn't changed either), and storing up feruchemical abilities. So yeah, now that I am told to stay inside, the only thing that's changed is me not wanting to be inside all the time. The Feruchemy is a plus too. EDIT: Actually, not that I think about it, I did do a nice scam the other day. I drove up to see my brother under the pretense of doing something else, but my real goal was to get my copy of Oathbringer back. So many birds killed with one stone. EDIT2: Gotta get watch shows/movies in the poll, like Renarin. Because Renarin sees...
