  1. @Traveller good freaking answer!
  2. I feel like something important is in this paragraph . How does an illusion make a copy of itself ? Could it be too crazy to wonder if Shallan created a solid image of Veil and Radiant . And those images were capable of producing copies ? Or am I just looking at this wrong ! @Pathfinder how do interpret this ?
  3. Have you ever watched Star Trek next Generation . The Holodeck is exactly what I mean by solid illusions . There are Holograms made of condensed light . They can strike you , shoot you and even cut you in half . Depending on the Danger settings . Translate that into A fully trained lightweaver with Thaylan city levels of stormlight . I’m thinking she possibly make illusions that can physically hurt you . Push you off a cliff . Block a sword , bludgeon you with a stick etc . I’m thinking she can use stormlight , soulcasting and lightweaving together and make a 3d hologram .
  4. I agree . The illusions she had produced were solid enough that when the enraged struck them instead of passing thru , it allowed the enthralled and enraged enemy to overlook the fact that they were illusions . I think this is foreshadowing . Maybe later Shallan will achieve this . Or perhaps another Lightweaver will make filly hard and tactile illusions by blending the surges . This probably something he is saving if this theory is correct . Why . Because you can actually kill with an illusion is OP as hell .
  5. I think your right . Kind of like how vampires could be taken out by a wooden stake , it’s easy enough that anyone can get it . My best guess would be one of the essences . Do you remember in shadesmar what the Fused did ? He cut his hand and threw blood at her illusions . Blood is one of the essences and common enough since everyone has it . Otherwise like you said an extremely skilled lightweaver could be overpowering if he or she could make solid illusions .
  6. So I was sitting around watching Star Trek and something clicked in my head. I was wondering if a very experienced lightweaver could make solid illusions . I played a lot of Dungeons and Dragons when I was a kid . So I know illusions come 3 types . Auditory , visual , and tactile. The best illusions are ones you can touch hear and see . Kind of like the solid holograms in the Holideck on Star Trek . So I got to wonder if a lightweaver had enough stormlight and was skilled enough to soulcast air could they make a solid illusion by blending the two surges together. During the battle of Thaylan City with all that Stormlight Jasnah was wondering if Shallan was doing just that . Shallan is not very good at soulcasting but I bet the Herald that was a lightweaver is . So anyways does anybody think that it’s possible for a lightweaver to make a solid illusion? Let’s say a knight with a sword or better yet a great shell that was solid . I don’t have to explain the potential of being able to do so . You could literally kill somebody with quasi - stormlight illusion . Thoughts ???
  7. I believe the Liss and Ash are two different people . However even though Liss knows Jasnah , I have a observation . For the sake of argument Let’s say Liss is a Herald . And she is known to Jasnah . Can she not change her appearance at will ? At the Time of Jezrien death by Moash . Jezrian appeared as and old spinely beggar . Other descriptions of him do not match this image . So the theory is he perceived himself as old and frail so appearance changed to reflect this . While Ash still look as youthful as always . So the Heralds probably have an ability similar to the Returned on Nalthis and can change thier appearance depending how they see themselves . So Liss could be right next to Jasnah and change her appearance and kind of use that as a disguise if she wants to see herself as youthful and or elderly if she chose .... just a thought . Has anyone else considered this !!!

  9. Ambition was actually splintered far away from Threnody . In the preface of that story in AU , he says the Battle began in the area around Threnody but it ended in Space a distance away so I don’t think that’s it .... On Scadrial Atium was the body of Ruin . The well of ascension , the mist , and Lerasium was the body of Preservation ( in all three forms gas, liquid , and solid) so I guess we need to know what he means by body as well . I don’t think we have seen anything on Roshar that could be considered Honor’s Corpse. So I’m go with Adonalsium on Yolen until we see more . As far as we know he didn’t have a vessel , so as powerful as he was I would think something would be left behind other than the shards. Interesting question tho !!
  10. At the risk of sounding like a complete idiot what exactly is manifestation . Are we speaking about how shallan brought a wall over from the physical realm using a surge ? Is that manifestation ? If so , Shallan has a surge that allowed that . So the basis of this question of the OP . Is he asking that anyone can manifest a object from the Physical Realm into the Cognitive Realm ? Or is manifestation simply Creating an Object in the Cognitive Realm that wasn’t there before ? And lastly do these rules change depending on what planet CR you are on ? Ie if your on Roshar you need to use a glass bead , if your on Nalthis CR you need to use breath , and if your on Scadrial you could use some other form of investiture ?
  11. It wasn’t the writing , it was the shape of the tunnels . I too thought it was illusion at first . I think that was what Brandon wanted us to assume . But it wasn’t . Think of the tunnels as viens inside a corpse . Spensa noticed they were uncannily similar . The illusions were added to the tunnels . And perhaps some illusions made sense see things she saw on Detritus. But the tunnels themselves were the same .
  12. Yes of course my favorite was K -nine the robot dog . He was amazing
  13. If I remember correctly it only whipped his alomantic metals and not his metalminds . The next day he got into a fight and used his ferachemical powers. I doubt he stored up that much weight in one day ! This post is about metal minds . The human body responds differently than an invested item. Invested items resist and the more it’s invested the stronger it resist . Otherwhise a leecher could leech a shardblade ? Make sense
  14. I’m don’t think that’s how it works , I’m be lazy and not look it up . I think Chromium wipes metal stores . I might be confusing this with Aluminum . But if it wipes metal stores then I don’t think it will effect metal minds If it does drain investiture . Then the other rule may kick in , invested objects are resistant to powers . So while it could drain a person of stormlight for example . It would be significantly harder to wipe an object depending on how heavily the object is invested . So let’s say a Leacher tried to drain all stormlight out of shardplate . That would take about 5 minutes . If he tried to drain Nightblood it would take about an hour . By that time Nightblood would kill him . If a Leacher tried to drain a normal metal mind , it would take a few minutes as the metalmind resist being drained . If he tried to leech the bands of morning metal minds I think that item is so invested it would take hours . And the weilder of the bands would not sit thier and let you drain the Bands . So I’m short it depends greatly on how invested the metalmind is invested that’s my take on it ? What do you guys think of my reasoning on how the mechanics work ?
  15. I like this theory . I really problem I have is I can’t seem to find an opposite for 2 unmade . Off the top of my head the thrill and Yelignar. The thrill I would say opposite would be Bondsmith . They unite instead of divide . While the thrill is pure chaos . Brandon says the Bondsmith are not represented by an unmade . So unless I’m not understanding what he meant and I’m oversimplifying this I’m confused Yelignar has all 10 surges . You swallow a gem and your body is taken over . I can’t seem to find a opposite . Maybe Willshapers Anyways can somebody tell me what orders the Thrill and Yelignar oppose?
