  1. @Argent i proposed a similar thing before OB but within a rambling theory about Honor being invested in Braize and having to essentially go back there when the heralds go to roshar. Rubbish in retrospect but the point your making i agree with relating to weakening the prison instead To quote my lesser self
  2. As foretold, I dig it. It echoes some things I've said, some things I've thought, some things that were in my head but i never actively thought about, and some things that hadn't occurred to me. I think your ashynite connection is the weakest as it really came down to an infusion of investiture, which other systems also have on other shardworlds. Most of them in fact. I would draw attention to Ishar being called Binder of Gods before he was a Herald as an example of why I agree the old Ashyn system was a form of voidbinding. But i don't have much more explanation than you anyway. All in all a great summary of what we know or can figure out alongside some great extra observations, even if I'm not entirely convinced of all aspects of your framework.
  3. Not a bad Crusade But seriously great update dude, must've been such a blast!
  4. My working theory had been that it happened close to, but after, the Recreance using either an honorblade or a skybreaker, but could be before with any radiant. But it would be a startling thing to get away with with radiants around.
  5. Kurth is in Rira where I think they stole the oathgate from. And yeah there are two oathgate spren which is the complication. But I figure maybe one was torn away and screaming back at its mate. Or both and they combine to form Cusicesh.
  6. Cusicesh fascinates me. A giant spren that appears at the same time every day with dozens of changing male and female faces. I've wondered if its a bondsmith spren that suffered an oathbreaking, or an unmade that got damaged, or an adonalsium spren that got messed up. But an idea I had recently that fits a surprising amount of evidence is that Cusicesh is an Oathgate spren. So I'll call it a hypothesis rather than full theory. "What are you raving about Extesian", I hear you ask, "the Oathgate in Iri is in Rall Elorim". It is. Which is why my hypothesis is that Cusicesh is the result of the Iri stealing the Rira Oathgate. Iri has often had a somewhat domineering relationship with Rira. Iri has two major cities, Rall Elorim and Kasitor. What a wonderful thing it would be to have Oathgates in your two major cities. So they stole the Riran one. Oathgates have oathgate spren in the corresponding Cognitive Realm location that control the gate. What may happen if you physical moved an Oathgate from one physical realm location to another? The spren would presumably not move in the Cognitive Realm. So what happens when you activate the gate then? I'm not sure but something that could happen is the gate malfunctions and traps the spren in some kind of limbo, or perhaps separates one from the other. Either way it causes some kind of short circuit. And say there are a few hundred people standing on that oathgate platform at the time it is activated. People that are about to effectively pop in and out of investiture to teleport. Perhaps they are trapped in some kind of limbo state. Where is the Rira Oathgate supposed to be? Kurth. And where does Cusicesh face? Origin, Axies says. Directly eastward. But what is also directly eastward of Kasitor? Yeah you guessed it. Kurth. TLDR Iri stole the Rira Oathgate and put it in Kasitor. As the spren remained in Kurth in the CR, when Iri activated the gate it short circuited, trapping one of the Kurth oathgate spren, and all the people being transported, in a hideous loop, like a ghost, looking out at the same time each day toward the place in the CR where the oathgate is supposed to be. I know it's a hypothesis looking for evidence, but I think there's some and I think its a fun idea.
  7. Spool we've chatted on Discord about this but I'll put my initial thoughts here as well. I guess I'm struggling to see how framework isn't just the spiritweb, background investiture isn't just investiture in the SR and manifestation isn't just the way Leras described it With energy, matter and investiture all being different manifestations of the same thing, you simply have SR investiture becoming matter and energy in the PR, and sometimes just being free investiture in the PR (like stormlight or breath) I guess what I'm saying is i think i agree with you but only in that you seem to be saying what i already thought was apparent but using different terminology. You're background investiture is simply investiture in the SR that is, as you say, constantly providing a physical (matter) manifestation in the PR limited by the SR (where its flowing 'through') Where i don't think we agree is with the premise that feruchemy doesn't work with that. Feruchemy works yeah because that constant presentation of your investiture in the PR can be siphoned off into metal then added later. I think though the only reason you thought that was because you didn't already assume that leras sun model? I'm not sure if I'm being clear, maybe i misunderstand your issues. But it seems to accord with my understanding of literally what realmatics is, but using different terminology and having a problem statement that i didn't see as a problem? But good write up dude, its a detailed and well thought out post. Btw my first post in three weeks! Thanks for drawing back in with realmatics, the finest of all the fictional arts
  8. Are any sharders going to this event (or did you get your recorder working Kay)? Just want to make sure it gets recorded.
  9. It's an interesting observation. I really am inclined to think it's just normal unpainted shardplate, slate grey could be described as silvery in sunlight, and that observation was made from quite a distance. I don't think there's any significance. But it is interesting so maybe other have ideas.
  10. I don't really know where to put this, its not a meme, but it's about me..me. but you're my community so I must share Anyway I present to you Mr and Mrs Extesian
  11. Kaladin danced with the wind.
  12. These are likely the references Jof is referring to. I don't know specific examples though.
