  1. I wondered if Detritus could be an astroid that was harvested for resources, and built into a giant shipyard/manufacturing complex. Spensa notes that Detritus doesn't have any oceans (possibly any bodies of water?), and it has such an extensive cave network, that originally being a giant chunk of space-rock that was mined out for resources could make sense... I also thought one of the comments/thoughts from Spenda early on mentioned Detritus showing the scars of the previous inhabitants war, so it was sort of implied that whoever lived there went full on world war and eradicated themselves, but maybe it was really part of the greater war with the Krell and other alien species.

    I agree. It sounds like the Detritus humans were able to create Starfighters because they discovered plans and machinery capable of producing Starfighters, rather than doing much design and engineering themselves, so likely the knowledge of how to make Cytonic compatible ships doesn't exist for the Detritus humans yet, since they aren't even willing to officially acknowledge the "defect". Based on Spensa's revelations at the end of the book, I expect the Detritus humans will work in that direction though.
  3. I stand corrected, thanks.
  4. I would claim he wasn't lucid enough to know battle was going on, and therefore was neither afraid of it nor avoiding it. The only time we see him aware of violence, he seeks to prevent it by catching the blow darts.
  5. My take was he's crawling up the stairs because they are built for heralds and too large for him (10 strides tall apiece) . Since we know the Heralds are actually normally sized, I take the paragraph as hyperbole as the author didn't really know the truth.
  6. It's the epilogue of OB. Hoid/Wit PoV and he's in Kholinor and gets into the palace.
  7. It's in tWoK when Shallan first finally manages to convince Jasnah to be her ward. Don't have specific pages or chapters off the top of my head.
  8. 4. I think Veil runs into him while spying on Amaram. I thought we had confirmation this was the same Hav. 5. They mention baskets on the end of long chains that can be lowered into the storm to recharge spheres.
  9. Could definitely be a fun/interesting twist! Please use the spoiler tags when posting about Mistborn inside the Stormlight Archive forums.
  10. In this case Mr. T is remembering Gavilar saying it, so Taravangian wouldn't have to be on Bondsmith path to remember Gavilar saying it. I agree that it is sort of ambiguous, but given current information it seems like the characters are just remembering it, although some of the Dalinar scenes make it seem like "something" is repeating it for him to hear.
  11. I agree with everyone else. The questioner is trying to be sneaky and have Brandon reveal extra information about Kaladin's fate, so Brandon RAFO'd it to avoid falling into the trap one way or the other, since he knows his answers are picked apart relentlessly! Not to beat a dead horse, but you might want to label that your spoiler tag is in fact for Mistborn. Right now someone could click it thinking it's SA spoiler and get quite the shock...
  12. I think you got the K-city names mixed up. The agreement is that Odium will spare Kharbranth, which Taravangian is king of.
  13. With Sanderson at the helm I would almost be more surprised if they weren't important later on.
  14. It's possible the attacker was trying to remain inconspicuous and using a normal weapon on Rock first, but then the other bridgemen came to his aid and the attacker was forced to use his shard blade to win the fight and get away quickly.
  15. He might if he could control it vs. being a package...
