  1. I'm in awe of how quickly people pointed out the big problem with Taravangian picking up Odium, his preference for dispassionate logic, without realizing the fix for that was already in place, in the form of dumb-but-emotional Taravangian.
  2. Lots of stuff to choose from, but I want to focus on something that seems like it should have been a bigger deal in world. A: Hey, did you hear? This guy took on like fourteen armed guys to save someone, and lived! B: Let me guess, a Radiant? A: No! No stormlight, no supernatural edge of any kind! B: Shards, then? A: No! No Blade, no Plate, just a steel sword and not even regular armor! B: Then he must have had help, right? A: Just a deadeye and his horse. B: Okay. Wow, fourteen, you say. That IS impressive... wait, is this Adolin Kholin we're talking about? A: Yeah, why? B: Yawn. I thought you had something interesting to talk about. Wake me when something unusual happens.
  3. Do we think the other Heralds had moments of lucidity when Navani bonded the Sibling, too? Or was Ishar special for one reason or another? If they did, I hope we hear about it.
  4. Keep on Writin' (These)!
  5. Yeah, I think the best way to resolve this is "There will be as many as a hundred Voices in this meeting" once all the Fused are awakened, not "there will be as many as a hundred Fused total" once they're all awakened.
  6. Maybe he skimmed the section of the shardic README about genotype vs phenotype and didn't realize that it was possible for the power to pop up again. Maybe genetic fiddling on that level was still beyond him (though apparently he did some fiddling with the skaa). My only point is that there was a window of time where he both recognized Feruchemy was an issue and had the power to do wacky things, which is a fact I thought was missing from the discussion on the cast.
  7. On the question of whether the Lord Ruler might have had the foresight to scrub metallic arts genes from his sperm while holding the power: it was then that he created the Mistwraiths, so he clearly thought Feruchemy was an issue already. It's not impossible that his shard enhanced mind came up with "Might be useful to have kids someday, but better not let them have magic or they'll try to overthrow me."
  8. Syl and Kelsier, because they both have lots of relevant experience in those roles.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Probably a lot of good lies around his marriage, too.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
