  1. Syl and Kelsier, because they both have lots of relevant experience in those roles.
  2. There definitely does seem to be a thermal effect when stormlight is moving around. Kudos to this thread for collecting some good examples of that. On the other hand, the thing in the first post about Dalinar's armor freezing up was definitely the "stuck" sense of frozen rather than the "covered in ice" sense of frozen.
  3. I think we can draw a line between lying and just being wrong, though when the person you're lying to is yourself it can get pretty blurry.
  4. Probably a lot of good lies around his marriage, too.
  5. I figure there'll be an Ars Arcanum, at least. How have the mods not already shut down the forum? We're done here, kids. It's not going to get any better than that.
  6. I wonder if he's using Connection in some way. Either a medallion (could you recharge one of those by leaving it out in a storm?) or some Silverlight tech.
  7. @vissy I read that smile as "Hold my beer and watch me destroy this fool," but it's entirely possible we'll get it recontextualized later.
  8. @Blazenella, I'm with you on Kaladin during Words of Radiance. As a WoT vet, I'm allergic to plotlines where the inciting factor is allies not sharing information. (Although as a WoT vet, having one of those resolved in the same book as its introduction is quite refreshing!) It doesn't bother me as much on rereads, because I know it'll end soon, but the first time through I was headdesking all the time. I do think you're underestimating the difficulty of pacifying Kholinar by revealing everybody, but it would have been an interesting read.
  9. Doesn't even crack the top five craziest Shallan theories.
  10. Nale has definitely claimed* to be fifth ideal: *: Not saying I don't believe him, just being clear about what we know and how we know it.
  11. I'm with you except on the Skybreakers. How does their crusade fit into this?
  12. Why is there a big privacy screen at the back of every Vorin bank? So you don't see the vault attendant's safe hand.
  13. I'm sure he thinks so, but sell, because storm that guy. Rock will learn to hear the rhythms, and will teach them to some musicians. A new style of music driven by distinctive pounding beats will sweep Roshar, and of course be named in Rock's honor.

    @galendo, have you read Mistborn: Secret History? I wonder if the in between place is reminding you of Perhaps Tanavast used to do that, and the Stormfather misses it. Or perhaps he still does it. We do still need an explanation for that difference between Scadrial's CR and Roshar's.
