  1. Okay, for some reason I thought they had been transcribed in December or something. *Shrug*
  2. I also like the WoB episodes, and there actually are more, since the Atlanta signing wasn't transcribed until after episode three or something, and its WoBs (including mine) didn't get analyzed. Also, I am feeling really smug because I got Oroden almost immediately after the clue 5 reveal.
  3. Eliminated tin savant, because their weakness is loud noise. Which of these is the Power of Love
  4. He doesn't have to cause harm, just prevent it from reaching me.
  5. Eliminated Hoid (and fixed up titles around Wax and Wayne's powers). Which is best Augmented by the Power of Rock™?
  6. I don't know if anyone is reading this, but if they are:

    At the end of December I changed my signature and said that I would have a rotating list of song parody links on it that would change weekly. Then I forgot. Anyway, if anyone cared, sorry for the delay but I have finally updated the songs.

    This week's theme is Szeth:

  7. While I get why you made a separate thread, I also think that these should be reposted in Cosmere! The Musical and Stormlight! The Musical (see my sig).
  8. Oops. Uhhhhh... Where do birds go when it rains?
  9. Eliminated Trustwarren, because it is on a different planet, destroyed, and literally made for hiding stuff.
  10. Eliminated Jokasha Monastery, because it is a nerd haven with beautiful mountain views and good weather. Who wouldn't want to go there? Where IS Waldo?
  11. Eliminated Nalthis (and fixed the spelling on Grand Indicium) because it's so pretty. Where is the next season of Survivor set?
  12. Thoughts: First of all, I feel your pain Evgeni. I too have a non-Anglicized name, and I too have problems with people reading it. I will even pronounce it for someone multiple times and still have them mess it up. I have multiple classes where, even late in the school year, I don't say "here" during attendance, but instead just say "actually, it's pronounced ___." And this is for non substitute teachers. Anyway, relevant thoughts: Copper says "Steals mental fortitude, memory, and intelligence". The comma between memory and intelligence, at least for me, removes any doubt about the fact that they are three distinct properties being listed. (Go Oxford Comma!) I agree with what @hoiditthroughthegrapevine said earlier about impurities from the geodes possibly needing refinement. I think that the fact that lerasium is the only one that says "abilities" and not "powers" means that they are actually distinct. Maybe the "abilities" are the ones that go into the blessings (e.g. strength senses, mental fortitude, emotional fortitude, etc.). This also contrasts nicely with atium, which steals powers, but not abilities, and deepens the kandra/inquisitor dichotomy. The most useful spike for an inquisitor is atium, which it can use to steal any allomantic power, "ruining" that alomancy and giving itself more strength. The best spike for a kandra, however, would be lerasium, because it would allow it to "preserve" the entire suite of the donor's human abilities, and then use it to create a kandra that would have all four blessings and only one or two spikes. The conversation about different hemalurgic abilities for godmetals made me wonder if maybe Raysium (AKA Odi-yum-yum) steals cognitive shadows, which would (a) allow it to kill spren, and (b) explain how Vyre's knife works.
  13. I haven't finished yet, but I want to make the following comments before I forget them: Firstly, the dragon discussion reminded me of two Terry Pratchett quotes: "Anyway, what is a fantasy map but a space beyond which There Be Dragons? On the Discworld we know that There Be Dragons Everywhere. They might not all have scales and forked tongues, but they Be Here all right, grinning and jostling and trying to sell you souvenirs. ” -The Color of Magic and "This is where the dragons went. They lie… Not dead, not asleep. Not waiting, because waiting implies expectation. Possibly the word we’re looking for here is… …dormant. And although the space they occupy isn’t like normal space, nevertheless they are packed in tightly. Not a cubic inch there but is filled by a claw, a talon, a scale, the tip of a tail, so the effect is like one of those trick drawings and your eyeballs eventually realize that the space between each dragon is, in fact, another dragon. They could put you in mind of a can of sardines, if you thought sardines were huge and scaly and proud and arrogant. And presumably, somewhere, there’s the key." -Guards! Guards!: A Novel of Discworld (p. 1) Also, listening to the discussion I realized that the Girl Who Looked Up is, in fact, Ash. Think about it, she is the namesake and patron herald of Shallan, so there is that nice literary connection, she feels guilty for the entire situation, and she would have been a baby when they got to Roshar, and therefore been one of the first kids to grow up with no memory of why they left and why they can't leave Shinovar (and therefore a group more likely to try to break out of the region). EDIT: in response to Eric's math comments a little bit after the Great WoB:
  14. *Strokes bibliophilic cat* Eeeeexxcccellent.
  15. Hi

    @Orion, you can definitely choose Hoid, in fact I believe that he is a common favorite. Small forum policy note: if you want to add something, edit your previous post, don't double post. To quote multiple people just use the multiquote button (the plus next to the quote button). To continue the conversation: The god of bravery is Lightsong, the Brave. Also, fun fact which you may or may not know, Warbreaker was actually originally intended to be a SA prequel.
