  1. Any thoughts, ideas, or wild conjectures what announcements are coming Wednesday and Thursday? Did he accidentally write another book? Will he admit that he has been tapping into some sort of Investiture to write the way he does? Will he confirm he is Hoid and has been trolling us this entire time? Thoughts?
  2. Start at the 46:23 mark.
  3. I am confused what truths Shallan has spoken now. What truths did she speak to get Patternblade? And does this mean the Blade Kaladin used in the chasms was Testament? Did he not hear Testament screaming because of the oddity of the situation or because of what was going on with him? Or was it Pattern afterall? So many questions I have now because of this revelation.
  4. Just a thought: Don't dead Shardblades follow their bearer in Shadesmar? Is so, where was Testament in Oathbringer? Shouldn't she have been near Shallan as Maya was with Adolin?
  5. Random speculation here with no proof of anything. Just an interesting idea: Perhaps what is going on with Shallan could progress Adolin along the Edgedancer path. There is a Formless personality within Shallan that seems to want to make an appearance. A personality that has been forgotten and ignored. Husband and Potentially Proto-Radiant Adolin (there's a title for you) could be the best person to remember and listen to this personality of his wife. No idea how that situation could arise, but who knows? Stranger things have happened.
  6. Sorry. Posted in wrong topic. That's what I get for using my phone. Carry on.
  7. To me, Taravangian meeting Dalinar on a dumb day is a smart move. It's a great cover. The dumb, empathetic Mr. T is more likely to get more out of Dalinar than a keen and intelligent Mr. T. Adrotagia is there to keep him out of trouble, but is also there to listen/observe Dalinar's unguarded answers and actions. And all the while, no one suspecting Mr. T of any sort of heinous activity or future betrayal.
  8. I personally subscribe to the theory that she is still alive and is the one writing the words at the beginning of the chapters. People say that she is dead. Maybe a body was found, but in a world of soulcasters who is to say for sure. I have no proof. I just want it to be real to throw some sort of wrench in well laid plans.
  9. With this thought, I wonder when Shallan will start to think that Jasnah isn't as dead as she might believe.
  10. Yes, yes they are. But the truth is, the future is dark. We are talking about the Last Desolation here. It isn't going to be pretty. We don't know much about Truthwatchers. We know they see...something. Renarin just may not know how to say what he knows. Remember, he has other issues. And again, future sight has been labeled as bad, heresy, and evil in Alethi culture. That's a lot to overcome. I agree. Rayse has an edge and this may be it. As I said, we just know so little about Truthwatchers to really say one way or the other. Thanks for the discussion!
  11. Interesting idea, but it doesn't quite feel right to me. I don't think that because you can see into the future necessarily means you've got Odium on your contact list. In Way of Kings, Honor says that Cultivation is better at seeing the future than he is. I think that future sight comes from her. This ability has just received a bum rap because it has been associated with the Voidbringers. How do we know that is true and not some propaganda spread around by the Vorinism?
  12. How do we know that Shshshsh is dead? We only have the word of several characters, and if I am reading this topic right, perhaps only from Dalinar himself! If there is one thing I have learned from reading Brandon Sanderson is that you do not count anybody dead until you see the body fall down at your feet, impaled by several shardblades, with the head removed. And not even then! Perhaps Shshshsh wasn't kidnapped at all, but either led the rebellion in the city or at least sympathized with it. Feeling betrayed, Dalinar reacts as the Blackthorn would and there is a bloodbath, scores of people dead. At the end, Dalinar believes that he has killed his wife, but she is only mostly dead and survives. Maybe she has now sworn vengeance upon the Kholinars and is working with Odium to destroy the world. Of course, no evidence to support such a theory, and I have no idea what she would have been doing for the last ten years. I just like speculating.
  13. That right there make me rethink my assumption that it was Jasnah. Who is the author of Oathbringer. Some thoughts I have now are that it might be a Herald or maybe even Honor? Or is it a main character that we have seen and nothing has changed. Who has suffered something worst that death? My own personal theory is that the author is Shhshhh, and that she is going to bring all sorts of confusion and discord to Kholinar family when she comes out and says "Surpise! I'm not dead." Think of how awkward it would be for Navani.
  14. Could it be that Dalinar is not Renarin's father at all? If true, could it be a factor in Shhshhh's death? Pretty long stretch I know, and definitely without any evidence. But since we know almost next to nothing about her, it is fun to speculate.
  15. My library posted these questions, so I thought that I would post them here. Who is your favorite literary love-to-hate-'em villain? Who is your favorite literary hate-to-love'em villain?
