  1. A polite monster. Like Hannibal Lecter.
  2. yare yare daze...
  3. Well, it's working.
  4. Maybe everything Hoid does, except they're a bigger jerk about it. He probably calls himself Dioh (Brando).
  5. I'm aware but it sure is working. My mind is sort of racing wondering why he RAFO'd this. If his goal was "I want to see what happens when the fanbase gets ahold of this RAFO", then, at least for me, mission accomplished.
  6. I was reading the more recent wob and someone asked if Hoid had a black haired counterpart. It was RAFO'd which I thought was pretty interesting, and this was something I never really considered. Is Hoid having a counterpart a common fan theory around here? If not, what do you guys think of the idea that there's an anti-Hoid out there?
  7. The other day I was reading through some wob and there was one about immortality which fascinated me. It got me thinking about how a worldhopper might achieve immortality. For the sake of this exercise, let's pretend for a moment that Realmatic Theory and Cosmere magics and such are real, complete with spirit webs, planets, kandra, and dragons etc. If you could gather whatever you wanted from any planet and person and make any changes to yourself, how would you go about achieving "immortality"? For the sake of this question, anything that slows down aging, stops aging, extends lifespan, continuously heals wounds or has you be reborn constantly or anything to that effect can be included under immortality. You can mix magics and get creative as well.
  8. Is Hoid's silver sword still significant? Brandon RAFO'd it at one point but at another point he said it was a symbol of office as the King's Wit. I know he also said it had personal value to Hoid.
  9. Rust and Ruin... Every time I come here, I crave cookies. It doesn't help that I haven't had any in half a year. Well anyway, welcome to the Shard!
  10. Stuff like this is why I constantly wish for Hoid short stories. It keeps the Cosmere train going while temporarily sating our hunger for Hoid moments.
  11. Wow, this is some good stuff. Welcome!
  12. I'm kind of a psychic and right now my visions tell me you like Shallan.
  13. @Sol Invictus Honestly? I can see this too. Brandon's been setting up Autonomy to be a pretty big deal, and he's also fond of Bavadin. I would say that Autonomy is the only other Shard I can think of as having as far a reach as Odium. The reason why I'm leaning more towards Odium is because Rayse seems more malicious and active in his attacks. I can't help seeing him as Hoid-like where he's had an impact on the larger Cosmere while remaining a minor background element for most of the books. Then he gets a larger role on Roshar while still staying mostly in the background, similar to Hoid on Roshar coming to the forefront as Wit yet staying an ambiguous character, though Rayse of course is more prominent than Hoid here.
  14. Yeah. The Sazed thing is another reason why I'm inclined to think of Odium as the big bad. It looks like he and Harmony are heading towards some sort of confrontation, but I don't see Brandon bringing Scadrial into the Stormlight Archive. All in all, it looks to me like Odium will survive SA and head into Mistborn Era 4 since that's the one with the crossover.
  15. Odium seems to play a bigger part in the Cosmere than most of the other Shards. He knows how to kill other Shards, he's directly responsible for how Elantris turned out, he and Hoid (arguably the Cosmere's main character) were friends before something happened that made them enemies, and he wrecked Threnody. There's also some theories that he might be Trell, but take that for what you will. Basically, a lot of importance has been built around him and his actions. It just seems to me that he's being set up as the final Cosmere villain. If he is, what does everyone else think of this idea? Love it? Hate it? And why?
