  1. Happy, hopefully. Glad to help!
  2. https://wob.coppermind.net/events/475/#e14990 Yeah, Brandon has confirmed that Hoid was tricked by confirming that he will figure it out in the early chapters of Stormlight 5. (See link above)
  3. I think it's awesome that the main characters in the Cosmere learn that the circumstances of their lives (being skaa, darkeyed, etc.) have infinitely less affect on their happiness than the focus of their lives (helping others, swearing oaths, bringing down the Lord Ruler, becoming a better individual, etc.). Initially a lot of them are angry at their circumstances, but most (if not all) of the good characters move past that and focus on bettering themselves, and that's a really good message for today's world.
  4. Skybreaker/Stoneward for me.
  5. Great idea! I'm grateful that Rhythm of War finally released, and the Cosmere drought is over! Also, yes, I've finished it, no, I won't spoil anyone, and yes, it's incredible.
  6. Dalinar was repentant; Sadeas was unrepentant. That's the difference.
  7. I, for one, am 100% on board with the plan to kill Ialai. I'm also a Skybreaker. Checks out.
  8. 58% Skybreaker. 49% Stoneward, Truthwatcher, and Windrunner. Seems about right!
  9. Yep, Warbreaker and WoT get content warnings, though WoT's potentially objectionable content is much more...pervasive, let's say.
  10. Read Warbreaker. You'll pick up on some important stuff in Words of Radiance, and it will prepare you for Oathbringer.
  11. Well said! I meant to use the word protect, and I think your wording is superior.
  12. I think the generally proposed theory is along those lines - that the oath may be "I will accept that I can't save everyone." It's an internal goal - coming to terms with your own limitations, which is a really powerful character moment for Kaladin.
  13. I love the ending of SoS. It's so sad, but it's really perfect for Wax's character arc. You'll love Bands of Mourning.
  14. I'd recommend going back to 2017 and listening to the podcast starting when Oathbringer released. You'll find that a lot of the things you may be confused about are things we've only discovered over the past couple of years. (Meaning go listen to old episodes, don't literally time-travel to 2017. That would be silly.) Also as a general note, Stormlight 4's second draft is now at 90% on the progress bar on Sanderson's website! HYPE!
