  1. I mostly agree. If some of the interludes are dropped, the overall story just does not make sense. For instance, Lift starts as an interlude between Part 3 and 4 of WOR. Even putting the interludes as shorts which a large portion of the viewing audience will not seek out on their own may cause confusion.
  2. I read the story in a different way. To me "Defending Elysium" referred to his desire at the beginning to defend the other races from Humanity. It turned out that the other races were not so pure themselves and had dissidents escaping (one of whom almost killed him). I took his decision to release FTL to Humanity as based on an attempt to save the human race. These dissidents have already started to take over human bodies (with uncertain success). Releasing Humans into the universe increases the chances of survival. I wonder if the war is actually due to dissidents in human form. Most humans wouldn't have a clue if their "leader" is actually an alien in a human body.
  3. 2 questions: 1. Do we know for sure that atium is exactly equal to the chunk removed? 2. Atium is no longer created. The amount had to be quite small after Kelsier destroyed the Pits of Hathsin. Vanishingly smaller after the final battle in HOA. How much atium do you believe is still in existance and does this energy not need an outlet? Given that the atium did not always exist as a set amount in physical form, I don't know why people cling to the need for the physical aspect to be constant.
  4. I'm not sure this can be used as a standard. Humans on Scadrial contain "more" preservation than ruin. However, what this means is undefined except in esoteric terms such as "imbalance". In addition, I'm not sure weight (heavier/lighter) can be used as a measure. This could be more cognitive or spiritual. I'm not sure you can quantify it.
  5. Actually, I was not suggesting Nightblood contains atium. Merely that atium has a temporal effect and Nightblood seems to have difficulty with properly discerning the passage of time. Could some part of Ruin's investiture specifically effect time perception? Atium was specific to Scadrial. If the investiture is dumped on another planet (or object), separate from Scadrial (and we know Harmony is putting it somewhere) does it still have a temporal effect? As I said, I'm stretching here. Playing with ideas which may give a more cogent theory to someone else.
  6. I agree it is very unlikely. However, since you brought up Atium, and I like to play with ideas, Atium affects time...... So a metal that has a temporal effect, and a sword that doesn't have a clear sense of time........ Yes, I'm stretching here. But it may give other people a better idea.
  7. Your comment caused a radical (and probably wrong) theory in my mind. Is there any possibility that Sazed could be dumping excess "Ruin" into Nightblood? Alternately, Could Nightblood be a result of a inexperienced shardholder (Sazed) looking for an outlet (Nightblood) which just happened to occur?
  8. While I agree that it can be jarring at times, I think the interludes provide more context into Roshar as a whole. In addition, Rysn from interludes has already had an impact on the main storyline and Lift started as an interlude character. I read them now wondering if any of the other characters will become important at a later point.
  9. Well, obviously Jasnah is the only Kholin to have achieved Kolinahr..........oh wait, I'm mixing worlds again........ Seriously though, I think Jofwu has done quite a bit of research on glyphs. I tried to find a specific thread but could not.
  10. ...Clearly, I need an editor. "I would have to go with your second possibility. Like you, I seem to remember her putting this out as her Radiant order although I can't find the passage right now. This suggests that Odium is getting his information through spies. I will have to agree with Calderis here. He is relying on information not gathered through futuresight in this case and his spy network is rudimentary at best. Also interesting that the Ghostbloods seem far superior to him in gathering correct information. It should get very interesting in terms of information gathering." Apologies.

  12. This could be correct. Honestly, I grouped Rock more with Willshapers. I think there is a certain quality to the spren (e.g. choosing Eshonai/Venli although not fully confirmed) which leads them towards unconventional/experimental decisions. Choose a listener, then choose a listener hybrid. However, this could be more accurate.
  13. I'm kind of surprised so many think Shallan will survive. She is number one on my dead list.
  14. Void + Illumination = Volumination? ...........really bad joke. going to bed now.
  15. Honesty, my opinion of WOT was much the same as mattig89ch. I read book 3 and it was Matt that was the final nail in the coffin. I am glad that so many people enjoyed the books and I wanted to stick it out to get to Sanderson's portion, however, it was not to be.
