  1. "Hi, I'm @Chaos!" - @Argent slyly looks thinking, "Oh that's cute, you think you're chaos." Love these WoB episodes! Great job, guys.
  2. They're also mentioned in Words of Radiance. Chapter 74, Striding the Storm:
  3. @Chaos @WeiryWriter is it possible that TLR's Spirit Web cracked from momentarily holding the sliver of a Shard's power? Rapidly inflating and deflating causing a crack that allowed Ruin to antagonize him? Or he's going insane from just being alive so long, lol.
  4. Stoneward and an Elsecaller, maybe? Convince them that logically your city needs it more and that without it your city will die. Other than that, I got nothing. This is also what I thought when I read this. Interesting theory but Cusicesh would have to be severely broken and changed. Oathgate spren are also very obedient, they were not swayed by Shallan's pleas.
  5. "Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair! Nothing beside remains. Round the decay Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare The lone and level sands stretch far away." Collected by the Silent Gatherers on Jesachaln 9 seconds before death. Subject was a sailor from Jah Keved. Excerpt from the poem Ozymandias. I chose it and the time of collection as a metaphor for Odium deciding to destroy civilization through time.
  6. Fantastic episode. Listened twice cuz it was so enjoyable. The Deathrattles really make for great theory crafting. I wonder how Moelach's visions work. Are they crafted through future sight by Odium? Are they a similar mechanic to the visions that Dalinar received? Could Dalinar somehow invade one of these similarly to how Odium can crash his visions?
  7. Pretty much did the same thing. Read all 3 books in like 3ish weeks (work really put a cramp in my reading style). It was a fun series. I think everyone was just so used to more "missions" towards the final goal. With Prof not fully on board and creating a mission towards beating Calamity, essentially no plan at all might have turned some people off. I'm an epic fantasy reader mostly, and I think most people reading Sanderson are. So people wanted a more fleshed out ending.
  8. Really liked it. It almost felt weird enjoying it so much when it's a YA series and I'm 31. I've seen the complaints about the rushed ending, and felt it a bit too. But it didn't ruin the series for me. Prof was such a great character. I really liked that his weakness was fear of failure when he's putting everything on the line. So many people fear failure and will self sabotage so they have the fall back answer. That was cool to me. I expected David's transformation to take place sooner. I thought once he survived the tower with Megan it would be a rapid descent into figuring out how to use Steelheart's power set leading to a battle to bring back Prof.
  9. This was my thought as well. The painrials that Navani created are from painspren, are they not? With a switch to inflict pain vs default drawing away pain.
  10. Read at your own risk, paper cuts result in useless fingers. I'd like a shard bridge, but I think that's too big for them. But super light, super strong, and the spren could even create hooks on the end to dig into the rock when it's placed to prevent it from being kicked down.
  11. Came here to say the same thing. I was a little confused considering what Kalak was so worried about.
  12. She wouldn't be able to end the current Desolation because she'd be too busy correcting everyone. But he can lash now, so it wouldn't work.
  13. I highly doubt it. The Recreance as we've seen it are Radiants renouncing their oaths and leaving their spren behind. I don't see why breaking due to torture would equate to renouncing his oaths. Stealing the Honorblade points towards a group like the Ghostbloods or Stone Shamans with a better understanding of what it is. I think it was just as simple as he was seen with a Shardblade, so it had to be replaced by a Shardblade.
  14. The garbled @thegatorgirl00 was hilarious. No more "technically". The WoB where someone asked Brandon about if the Honorblades were modeled after anything makes me think they were angling for an answer about the Dawnshards. Also, either the move to Dischord to record the show or the system update to my phone has allowed my podcast app to pause, fast forward and rewind without having weird playback issues. Great episode guys!
  15. Sorry, really late back. This was a recollection of a couple threads a ways back before Oathbringer. There was a few people that disagreed which Order Adolin was suited for (be it Skybreaker, Edgedancer, or team not a Radiant).
