  1. @Koloss that's true AND there is so much to draw in the physical realm (but I can't help myself, my fingers are crossed )
  2. Wow, love your whole artwork, it really is absolutely amazing. (Are you planing to add spren to your natural history collection? That would be awesome^^ )
  3. This is absolutely lovely. You really captured her perfectly with that mischievous grin ^^
  4. What is the connection between the small number of new (known) Truthwatchers and that the Spren changed by Sja-anat are only Mistspren (so far as we know). Is there even a connection? Can a bonded spren be changed by Sja-anat? How many newly bonded Stonewards and Dustbringers are there at the beginning of RoW? Are there new bonds outside of Urithiru? At one point Brandon said that some spren are more lenient in choosing their bondmate than others. So except highspren and proapbly honorspren, which ones are especially discerning? Which ones are more lenient?
  5. Just found this thread and am totally blown away by all these amazing drawings. I'm not even trying to pick a favourite, those drawings are just all to good for that!
  6. Hard to tell really at the moment as we know so little about this. But my thoughts where on a similar line to @Ixthos that it has to do with their nature. Though I thought it could be because they are the one most likely to change and that makes them open so Sja Anats thoughts or something on that line.
  7. That was really beautiful. Thanks for writing and sharing it!
  8. Oh that's so cool. I was preparing something similar, though haven't quite finished yet (damnation exams coming closer ^^). Can stop doing that now and just enjoy your results. Thanks so much!
  9. My top three where a bit of a surprise, but I like it... though I guess I've to change my profile picture now ^^' Truthwatcher 76% Windrunnter 75% Willshaper 70%
  10. and another Soother... can you soothe yourself? That would be really helpful for me xD fun quiz though!
  11. I think the Old Magic is... maybe not really soft magic but a bit of a wild card regarding the rules.. they are not as obvious as with many of his other magic systems and I kind of enjoy this. It is just so different ^^ And letting evil win.. well for me it feels like Sanderson is taking a step back from the traditional good vs evil by making me think about what really makes someone good or evil? What does it mean to be evil? Are the Singers evil because they want to punish those they've suffered under? Was Ruin really evil? Did he even have a choice?
  12. poll

    Raoden is just a good guy who fights of the despair he finds himself in and does something about it. I find that hugely admirable. On the other hand I didn't really care for Hrathen most of the book... but that ending... oh wow
  13. One of my biggest hopes is that we'll get a Stoneward POV. I'm so curious about their spren after we got that short glimpse in Shadesmar. We've probably met one already but I'm still a bit clueless who... though I do hope that Taln will join them and maybe be the first Stoneward in millenia. Edit: Just realized that I really need to know what happened to Thude and the other Listeners who refused to accept Stormform. Really hope that Rlain will meet them again...
  14. So one short break in the Elsecaller row (even though I'm definitely a nerd ) Wow what a tough choice... it's really hard to tell at the moment as we know so little about some of the orders, but I went with Stoneward for my favourite. Everything I've read so far, especially everything we know about Taln, just speaks to me on a level I can't really describe. What let me choose the Dustbringers as the order I would probably join was something Isaac Stewart said about them, that resonated with me: "But I identify with their relationship to responsibility, learning to keep the passion and rage at bay because that is the responsible thing to do." ( (As a side note... everyone I know who's read SA says that I would probably end up as a Windrunner. Not sure if I have that in me though...) ok Elsecallers, continue... I'll be quiet again
  15. @Krandacth thanks for the link And for the part Adolin as a Edgedancer. I never saw him not as an Edgedancer because he has no similarities with Lift, but because of the loving and healing attributes that define them. When I read his parts it always struck me how he follows the orders of his father, even if he doubted him. Probably that's because I always saw him more as a Releaser. But you make good points that got me thinking: As to he part with the ten heartbeats... Didn't it say somewhere in WoK that the heart beats faster if you need to summon your Shardblade very quickly? But I don't have my book with me, so I can't look it up
  16. @Krandacth that is an interesting theory. I like it... it definitely sounds complicated enough to be a very rare event (and it makes me curious about your Nahel Bond theory). Though Adolin never struck me as an Edgedancer and I think I read somewhere, that his sword is an Edgedancer sword?
  17. @Eki that was my thought as well. Especially since the WoB about this matter says that it's complicated to revive a Shardblade without the Knight that spoke the oaths... I'm not sure if you can "accidentally" revive a Shardblade? But I still like the idea
  18. That was quite fun ^^ 58% Dustbringer 56% Willshaper 47% Truthwatcher 42% Lightweaver 13% Skybreaker 11% Elsecaller 3% Edgedancer And 0% for Windrunner, Stoneward and Bondsmith. Not sure about the outcome but I would definitely like to see how this and the other Quiz develop after the next book is out and how the results will change
  19. Totally agree Even though my favourite is the Stormlight Archive. You are in good company here, so welcome from another newcomer
  20. @BeskarKomrk Thanks for that, haven't seen that WoB yet. Gives me hope of seeing Lift with some squires
  21. Didn't a WoB say that the squires are for the Windrunners, what the mnemonic abilities are for the Lightweavers? But I'm not 100% sure... I'll look it up. But if your theory is correct... well... I would love to see the squires Lift gathers around her INTERVIEW: Jan 21st, 2015 Changing Hands, AZ ZENBOSSANOVA I said since Shallan has a unique ability of Memory from her blended surges, is fighting what Kaladin has? BRANDON SANDERSON No. His unique ability is “Strength of Squires”. Found here:'windrunners' But who knows? Maybe we'll still see some other Orders with squires ^^
  22. Just wanted to say hello. About me: I love Brandon's books, why else would I be here? Favourites: Stormlight Archive Mistborn In that order (most of the time at least) but still haven't managed to read all his books yet, so this can change (for example Elantris is still on my to read list...) If you have questions: just ask (btw. english is not my native language, so I will make mistakes and I'm already sorry for that... still learning )
  23. Alright, you all got me convinced. I will accept no cookies, no matter how delicious they look. (Don't really want to be Ruined ^^) Thanks for the warnings! :-)
  24. I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned it so far (sorry in case I'm repeating it^^). I always assumed that Shallans vision and Renarins seeing of the (possible) future came through their, or rather their sprens, bond to Cultivation. That assumption was based on one of Dalinars visions where Honor mentioned that Cultivation is better than him in seeing the future. I assumed that it's possible that the more influence Cultivation has on their spren, the greater can her influence on the Radiants (that bind this spren) be. So what I want to say by this is, that I never thought that the future sight came from the surges but from Cultivation. If that makes sense?
  25. For my part, I would love to see more of the Stonewards, Willshapers and Dustbringers. So...of every Order we haven't seen yet And I'd like to add a thought to marianmis impression: I had the same thoughts and I would also add, that I have the impression, that the opposite for their humans is true. The Windrunners seem more "organised", in the way that they are working in groups (with their squires). The Lightweavers, Elsecallers and Edgedancers we have seen so far are, on the other side are more individualistic and independent... work alone. But we know so little. Maybe I'm jumping to conclusions...
