  1. The old magic works on singers and on people not native to Roshar, so I can't see a reason for it not working on sentient spren. I think it's possible that Sja-Anat's new ability comes the Old Magic, and if it is then here's an interesting thought, what's her curse? I don't think Ba-Ado-Mishram's ability to connect to the singers came from the Old Magic though. I think it was just something that had never needed to be done because the heralds always eventually broke and let Odium/Voidspren/Fused out, but when Taln wouldn't break BAM tried something new and it worked. Personally I prefer the theory that BAM is Odium's bondsmith spren, for lack of better term, and was able to connect to all the singers and give them voidlight and forms of power. Which is very similar to what we see the Stormfather do except he is only bonded to Dalinar.
  2. theory

    Well all radiants (except lift) use stormlight no matter their order, so I think anti stormlight would work on any spren. Also in shadesmar when high storms pass the spren are rejuvenated so I think stormlight is more connected to spren than lifelight, or at the very least more connected to spren who are bonded to radiants.
  3. Khriss in secret history?
  4. Is that from an epigraph in stormlight?
  5. Mercy might clash with some of the other intents but I don't think Mercy would attack those intents. Preservation and Ruin are basically complete opposites, and yet Preservation's intent made it very difficult for Leras to be violent. My only problem with that theory is that Ambition does not seem like they would stop doing something because someone asked them. Someone who is ambitious is ruthless and will stop at nothing to achieve their goals. Now it depends on how the vessel views the intent but I think it would be very difficult for Ambition to not take advantage of an opportunity like that.
  6. So I was rereading the epigraphs and there are two in Harmony's letter that grabbed my attention. When I saw this I was kinda confused, why would Mercy worry anyone? It seems like a pretty benign intent. I thought maybe the vessel holding Mercy was becoming unstable, but then I read this next epigraph And in the Arcanum unbounded Threnody essay it says that Odium and Ambition clashed near Threnody and Ambition was wounded, but the splintering took place elsewhere. So here's the theory. Odium attacked Ambition and wounded them, but didn't manage to kill/splinter them. Odium left to recuperate or something, and Mercy finished Ambition off because they believed it was the merciful thing to do. I tried to come up with a different reason Mercy would be involved in the conflict and I can't think of any other good reasons. Especially taking the first epigraph in account.
  7. Warden woke to a slap, but for some reason it didn't really hurt. Warden still felt dizzy and tired and didn't really know where she was or what was going on. Lena was in front of her telling her to drink something, to tired to complain she drank it and after a few minutes she felt remarkably better. She slowly stood up, and only felt slightly dizzy. She looked around and saw the monster thing again, she pulled out her handgun and quickly emptied the magazine into the creature. The shots echoed loudly in the small room, but Warden was able to ignore the noise. Warden created a disk right in front the monster to keep it from moving any closer, "does anyone know what that thing is?"
  8. Karger your profile pic looks really cool with the rainbow thing, also I win
  9. Everyone was still talking, but Warden still didn't know what was going on. Suddenly a portal opened up next to Lena, Warden shouted something and stood up. When she stood up her head spun, and she immediately fell over, she tried to stand up but she kept falling down. So she decided to just take a nap. @Sorana @Vargo Seldon @I think I am here.
  10. main plot

    Darkness looked as though he was going to strike, but at the last second missed and fell. Zan walked forwards, a grin spreading across his face, it would almost be a shame how easy it would be. He drew a knife from his belt and moved to strike, but even within the bloodlust he hesitated to kill someone who couldn't fight back. With the bloodlust weakened the part of Zan's mind that was still free took back control. It felt like waking up, Zan opened his and saw Darkness lying there and he remembered what had happened during the last minute or so. He stumbled backwards dropping his weapons and fell down. His leg and arm hurt and stopped burning pewter so that he could feel the pain, he deserved the pain for what he had done and almost done. He just sat there with his head in his hands. @Vargo Seldon
  11. Rilen realized what he was doing, already believing the stereotypes. Nerin might be manipulating his emotions so that he would trust her, but she had been more than kind to him and the others by letting them stay the night. "I apologize, I, it's just," he stammered, "it's just that emotions are powerful, and people that can control them typically abuse that power. But you seem like a good person and I apologize for any offense I may have given." @ZincAboutIt @Sorana
  12. "I don't mean to be too invasive, I just don't typically have Dreams unless something big has happened, or is about to happen." Rilen trailed off, thinking about what it might mean for the future if nothing had happened yet. "You work here, so you're a soother?" He said as he narrowed his eyes at her, he hated soothers, this one had seemed nice, but you could never tell because she could just be making herself seem nice. He nodded to Aben and Attayl as they walked in.

  14. "Sure," He said without really thinking about it, he picked up the bread and butter and carried it into the main room and set it down on one of the tables in there. Rilen picked up a piece of bread and spread some butter on it and walked back into the kitchen. "Alright, and who are the Farriers and the Scarlets? And whats your name? I didn't get it last night." He asked as he finished off his bread. @ZincAboutIt
  15. Rilen woke up, still tired from what had ended up being a very exhausting night. He sat up from the chair he had been sleeping in, and it looked as though he was one of the first awake. So he walked towards the back of the parlor where he heard someone moving stuff around, it was Attayl and the other woman from the night before, the one who had seemed to be in charge. He walked in, "Good morning, and can someone tell me what happened last night? I dreamed of danger and my dreams aren't wrong." @ZincAboutIt @Sorana
