  1. Seems as good a place as any to ask. Do we know if Lift can breathe in lifelight when she cannot stormlight? Or is she still limited to metabolizing food?
  2. I'll admit it.....I laughed out loud
  3. When confronting Navani. What emotions lead to sadism?
  4. He specifically indicates it takes his anger away from him.
  5. Totally agreed. Could be some sort of amazing payoff in book 5 but I doubt it.
  6. He shows anger and hatred
  7. The story shows otherwise.
  8. Yes. Why should we disbelieve? Everything in the story points to the Heralds having such a Connection to allow for the knowledge Kalak: Jezrien is gone. Despite being all the way out here in Lasting Integrity, I felt him being ripped away. The Oathpact was broken already, but the Connection remained. Each of us can sense the others, to an extent. You’ll be left with a being that eventually fades away into the Beyond. I felt it happen to Jezrien. Nale: Ishar said only a Connection between the worlds could cause a bridge to open. And Taln has not given in. I would know if he had.… Ash: They killed my father a year ago. Permanently, somehow. We all felt it. Hilarious, though I think Nalan is awesome.
  9. How did you feel about Moash murdering Jezrien?
  10. Geez, I genuinely forgot that he was wearing an evil Windrunner costume. Many readers including myself find Moash in Oathbringer to be complex, nuanced, and realistic in a way that most other Sanderson characters are not and it hard to believe this was done accidentally. Frankly, I believe that Vyre's portrayal and role in this book was a direct reaction to the "Screw Moash" meme that the fanbase fell so in love with.
  11. What preferences do you speak of?
  12. To be clear, I've read the story. You should understand that telling me that the Kholins actually are special and that Radiants serving as medics, scouts, troops, and food suppliers are actually very worthy contributions to the *story* isn't actually going to change my stance. Did anyone indicate there wasn't? How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? There, one irrelevant question in exchange for another.
  13. Nah, its a valid equivalence. Moash wasn't a ninja, lol. He walked over, cut the guy down, then held a blade in his eye until his Stormlight was burned out and then had time to acknowledge and salute Kaladin all without being disturbed or attacked by anyone. If he wanted to spit some nonsense he could have unless you think Moash couldn't talk and stab at the same time. Even disregarding that, when do we ever see Moash lie to anyone except in regards to keeping the assassination plot hidden? When does he ever just come up with lies to hurt someone's feelings? Vyre is just a poorly written plot device; he doesn't feel like any continuation of the character that I had read of before. Moash was selfish but not petty at all. Wanting vengeance for the death of his parents against the man responsible for that death isn't petty. Vyre is extremely petty though. He has a strong desire to kill Navani.....just because she's related to Elhokar? Because he doesn't think she's a good leader? How absurd. He acted with less nonsensical emotional framing as Moash and expressed no ill will towards Dalinar or Navani. He helped the Singers because he felt sorry for them its clear through his thoughts. That's like saying Kaladin is selfish because he chose to help Bridge 4 to distract himself and push himself out of his depression. You can walk and chew bubble gum at the same time which is to say you can have many motives for making a specific decision.
  14. Yes he did. Kalak said so.
  15. Gaz of course. Where do you think that new eye came from?
  16. Agreed. The story feels like its about one really special family.....and Kaladin as the family friend. No one else actually gets to do anything particularly important and when they do act it seems to be to save or inspire a member of the super family. Still shocked that the squad sent to Lasting Integrity accomplished......nothing. Sigizil and the Windrunners accomplished......nothing. The other Radiants dont really seem to be worth much to the story, Nah, I didnt even like the Vyre confrontation, and no thats not what the word plausible means.
  17. Nah, he was acting like a slasher villain dragging his blade and lying through his teeth for no reason: She glanced over her shoulder. Moash continued walking, an inevitable motion. Not rushed. His sword—with its elegant curve—held to the side so it left a small cut in the floor beside him. “Lighteyes,” Moash said. “Lying eyes. Rulers who fail to rule. Your son was a coward at the end, Queen. He begged me for his life, crying. Appropriate that he should die as he lived.” “But you know what?” Moash said, standing over him. “There was always a part of me that resented how you were so eager to follow him. Right from the start, his little axehound. Licking his feet. He could have tried to speak to Elokhar.....but he didn't. No taunts or threats or triumphant statements. He killed him quickly and efficiently. Not sure why being emotionless makes Vyre want to taunt and cause emotional pain. It's pretty ridiculous and why I feel he was poorly written. True facts
  18. Or......he just replaced his carapace armor with metal armor to further separate himself from other Fused.
  19. Nah, Gawx will be the third. It is known.
  20. I just think it was boring and obvious development.
  21. Nah, apparently he's doing his best to make sweet love to Jasnah which she......doesn't really care for.
  22. I think that Truthwatcher called it actually.
