  1. From the album Vianki's Fanart scenes

    Cold places intrigue me and the Frostlands are no exception. While they might span quite an area and include some slightly warmer areas with the ability to grow stunted rockbubs, they do have some decent mountains as well. What can I say. We're snowed in here in Seattle and I was inspired.

    A quick Wyndle Study, oil on canvas 8x10, before attempting a bigger piece.
  5. my bad. Didn't notice the [OB] in the title. I tend (try) to hide all my spoilers even within a [--] topic, but now that I read the policy again that's just a me thing not a forum thing. Carry on! /scurries away.
  6. Please spoiler tag this!
  7. A few thoughts about that quote… 1) That the bow is “Amaram’s Shardbow” is an assumption made by Kaladin right after the heat of battle. It’s possible he’s incorrect. 2) “seemed to match” could mean that the size of the thing looked appropriate to Rock's size/stature/strength, since we know he's big, possibly big/strong enough to do this with only a little stormlight 3) “seemed to match” could mean that it was literally also glowing and brilliant, implying something else. These points together having me thinking it is definitely possible that the ‘shardbow’ isn’t actually Amaram’s, but Rock’s spren, manifesting as a living, capital-S, Shardbow.
  8. I had to look up the name, but that is an interesting suggestion! We haven't heard from those two adorable ardents in a while and it seems entirely plausible to me that one or the other would be of interest to true spren at least, if not the Sibling. But... how are they broken? And how do their goals and personality align with Bondsmith ideologies?
  9. OK I give. Clearly there are glyphs in the frame, but I'm at a loss. Anyone worked this out yet?
  10. It's also possible that Shallon genuinely doesn't realize she even HAS shardplate. She's gotten so used to her illusions that she might not have thought twice about what she had or hadn't drawn in the past, or that most of her illusions had little-to-no mass (with the exception of the 'army' she created for the battle, which could have been the mass of stormlight or a small amount of soulcasting, according to Jasnah.) My point is, even if Shallon states emphatically that she doesn't think she has shardplate we shouldn't trust her. She is far from the most reliable narrator, especially regarding her own self/past. Also, and I forgot this above, (back a bit to the op) she definitely attracted enough creation spren during the battle. Additionally, the theory about default shard-plate color seems solid. We have, in OB a Dalinar Vision where he sees a Stoneward, climbing, weaing shardplate. Stoneward's gems are Topaz, and Add this to Shallon's being Red/Garnet and we may have a coincidence. But then, in the Purelake vision.... It has been theorized (confirmed?) that this KR is a Dustbringer, and their stone is Ruby. 3rd time's a bit much to be a coincidence.
  11. Good catch!! I wonder if that's how she survived the initial attack from her mother? A lot of assumptions here, but Shallon was very young, and probably trusted her mother implicitly. It would have taken a pretty drastic and definitive attack for her to summon Pattern and actually kill her own mother in self-defense. Thinking through this, it's possible that shardplate saved her tiny body, shocked her mother, and gained her the time she needed to survive and fight back. LOTS of guesswork, but I think it makes sense?
  12. I've been reading too much and can't remember who else thinks this, but we have almost definitely seen one Radiant in actual shardplate. Shallon. It's actually the scene the OP quoted. As far as I know, Shallon always drew Brightness Radiant in a Havah, not plate. In the scene the OP quoted, we have the description of Radiant in Plate. Assuming that description of Radiant is the consistent visualization of her throughout the scene, she would still be seen wearing plate in the moment where Jasnah reaches out to Shallan. Of the three (Veil, Shallon, Brightness) in that moment, Brightness was the physical one.
  13. That is a REALLY good point, and I agree, I'm not sure how that would affect this.
  14. I think we may be looking at this backwards. 1) the product of millennia of evolution 2) the result intermixing of the species Because of Horneaters/Herdazians we know interbreeding was possible. Because of Venli's comments, we know that the Parshendi gemhearts are either very well hidden w/in something else, or very small Because of a whole bunch of Renarin references, we know Glys and he aren't... like the others. This scene, in particular, stood out to me. (image attached) It makes me wonder how Renarin can pull the stormlight out of the thunderclast. This sounds a lot like the abilities of the red-lightning Fused, to me. To sum up- I think every people but the Shin have some Parshendi in them, and it's possible a tiny gemheart is a part of the heritage. I also think Renarin has a LOT to still be seen, but Glys is certainly more powerful then either Glys or Renarin think.
  15. I think spren are often attracted to something specific, and it's not that uncommon for that same something to be present in siblings. I would say that while Eshonai and Venli were quite different in personality, they were very similar in their pursuit of what they saw as right and best for their people. We also have (i believe) another case of a spren losing their chosen to death, only to pick a sibling : Syl. I'm hard pressed to say why, but i'm convinced she's talking about Tien.
