  1. Oftentimes in SA there are seemingly insignificant characters that are described very specifically, such as Nale in the prologue of WoK. When Brandon provides specific description it’s usually a flag that the character is actually important. In chapter 53 of WoK Kaladin saves an unnamed bridgeman, described as having “dark brown skin and brown eyes, his thick black hair pulled back into a long, braided tail.” “How …” the man said. He didn’t have even a hint of an accent. Kaladin had expected him to be Azish because of the dark skin.” This is an odd description, and Brandon surely knows more about who this guy is. Is anything known about who this is? Am I just seeing importance in this man that he doesn’t really have?
  2. I found several more errors on my reread that haven't been reported in this thread yet. I found them in the hardcover but I'm only reporting the ones that are also in the current ebook. All given page numbers are from the hardcover. p. 370: "Do you have a thought on whom should I approach next?" should be "whom I should" p. 397: "Earless Jacks snorted" His name is Jaks, not Jacks. p. 448: "Shin Stone Shamans would recover it from whomever had killed him" should be "whoever". The subject of the phrase "whoever had killed him" is "whoever". The word is not the object of "from" but is part of the phrase that is the object of "from". p. 477: in the hardcover, "like how to best get the ardents there to accidentally drink a mixture that will turn his mouth blue"; in the ebook, "like how to best get the ardents there to accidentally drink a mixture that will turn their mouthes blue". Changing "mouth" to the plural form is correct, but it should be "mouths", not "mouthes". p. 582: "Lirin ordered gathering his sewing needle" should be "Lirin ordered, gathering his sewing needle" p. 781: "smashing a few Rockbuds beneath his plated boots." Should be "rockbuds", not "Rockbuds". That word is not capitalized anywhere else in the book. p. 784: "Parshendi blood splashed in the air as he killed" Shardblades don't cut living things, so there shouldn't be any blood from Dalinar's fighting. It is discussed elswhere in the book how there is no blood where he fights but blood everywhere where his soldiers fight. p. 799: "The last time he'd been alone had been that night when he'd been tied up for the highstorm to kill him." This is not at all true; in chapter 46 Kaladin wanders around Sadeas's camp by himself and sees Adolin rescue a prostitute from a lighteyes. p. 911: "rushing across bridge six" everywhere else has been capitalized as "Bridge Six" p. 999: "Most men would pick one of those, if given the choice, and name them the greatest of talents" should be "name it the greatest of talents" I tried to make sure I didn't report any that have already been reported.
  3. I’m sorry to bring anything related to TikTok into this, but “Maybe I’ll be Chaser” “My dad’s already Chaser” “What about Jager?” “We’ve already got a Jager” ... “I have an idea” “What’s your idea?” “You should be...” ”I’m not gonna be Jerkface”
  4. Page 9 line 13 The comma in “‘We fight,’ said Mongrel” is italicized. It should not be.
  5. “Darro had betrayed his most beloved of bothers” amused me. Pour was used instead of pore several times.
  6. Nope—I haven’t even read The Wheel of Time.
  7. "Neithan" is a rather obscure alias for Túrin Turambar from The Silmarillion. It means "the wronged" in Sindarin.
  8. If Khriss wrote the Ars Arcana, why do those of the Mistborn books contain inaccurate information reflecting what the characters in the story know? If Khriss is really compiling the information about the magic systems, why would she be limited to the current knowledge of the characters? For example, The Well of Ascension has a metals table with atium and malatium as the external temporal metals, which we know is incorrect. Also, each successive Mistborn book contains more metals in the Ars Arcanum than the previous. It seems unlikely that Khriss wouldn't know these things until the characters discover them in the story.
  9. Ah, I had forgotten that Khriss was on Scadrial at the time of the story.
  10. Brandon just published a blog post announcing his new novel, Skyward. Interestingly, he said that the book is in the continuity of something he has already written, but it is not a part of the Cosmere or the Reckoners multiverse. Any guesses? I’m blank. Brandon also mentions that the 2017 State of the Sanderson will be out tomorrow.
  11. "where I am a theorist" This should be "theist."
  12. I'm indignant about the results. A screenplay should not be allowed to win in the fantasy section.
  13. warbreaker

    Whom does the cover of Warbreaker by Dan dos Santos depict? Based on the clothing and hair, Siri seems to be the only option, but why, then, do we see colorful Breath coming out of her mouth, and why does she have a sword? Does the scene on the cover actually relate to the book?
  14. Someone could definitely pull off a parody of Pink Floyd's rock opera The Wall with the main character replaced with Shallan. She certainly has a lot of bricks....
  15. A full 40,000 words of the Lopen. I don't care about the context, or if there is even a plot. Just Lopen calling people gancho while sticking them to the walls or enticing women by glowing.
  16. Ouch. That's the absolute worst place to have missing pages.
  17. @dbmeboy See Peter’s response to this post
  18. OB chapter 118 makes it seem almost certain, to me, that Nightblood has an aluminum sheath.
  19. US Hardcover page 407, paragraph 5: "they went there automatically. and those who" "and" should be capitalized. This was an easy mistake to make because the Stormfather speaks in small caps.
  20. Is 1200x800 enough? I believe this was just from the Tor cover reveal post.
  21. Edgedancer The Wise Man's Fear
  22. Search results should have a maximum preview length. Having to scroll through a State of the Sanderson in search isn't fun.
  23. It might be helpful to be able to sort searches in different ways, such as by date ascending or descending
