  1. Hey, @Mistborn Surgebinder, what about both characters? I would love to see more Forgery, so what if Shai is off in a different country pulling some shenanigans that are causing political problems for Gaotona? I'd be down for something like that.
  2. The word "money" appears in the Stormlight Archive..... WoK: 65 times (9 money pouches, 4 moneylenders/moneychangers) WoR: 30 times O: 22 times (7 of these instances are compound words, such as "moneychangers") RoW: 14 times For a current total of 131 times.
  3. I can do the search. What's the word?
  4. Hahaha, loved the Strong Bad "It's Over!!" At the end.
  5. Warbreaker Spoilers I haven't finished the episode yet, so if this is discussed later, oops. Had to say it while it was on my mind.
  6. On a few different other topics, the idea that Kelsier is a Dawnshard has come up. I have been reading through the fist Mistborn trilogy, plus Secret History and The Eleventh Metal, and I have found some evidence that I think indicates that Kelsier is INDEED a Dawnshard. By the way, there are many Mistborn spoilers here, so be warned!!! From "Secret History" From "The Hero of Ages" But this is the one that struck me the most: From "The Eleventh Metal" (Kelsier is having an introspective moment) My assumptions: There is a Survive Dawnshard Preservation was the Survive Dawnshard My uncertainties: When did Kelsier become the Survive Dawnshard? Was it in the Pits or was it when Preservation died? Anyway, I'm going to say a few thoughts on the quotes I listed above. From my first quote above, when Preservation dies and Kelsier remembers hearing the voice in the Pits, people have said that Preservation was incapable of speaking to people. To counter that argument, I say that Preservation was able to speak to Kelsier, not in his role as Preservation, but in his role as the Survive Dawnshard. Perhaps he was able to separate the power form his mind for a moment and speak the command to Kelsier in the Pits. Kelsier is certainly able to do the same thing when he commands Spook to survive. By the way, did you notice that it was an "all-powerful" command? Now, of course Kelsier is better able to separate himself from the power of Preservation because he's not Connected enough to it, but maybe Leras could've pulled the power away from himself, just barely, to speak to Kelsier. The second quote, from "Hero of Ages," I think was Brandon giving us foreshadowing WAY in advance. Demoux is a very perceptive guy, so I think it makes sense that he would say these things AND be correct. The way Rysn describes the Dawnshard at the end of chapter 19 sounded very similar to me. Rysn: "The will of a god to remake things, to demand they be better" Demoux: "The hopes of a divinity" Then finally, the quote from "The Eleventh Metal." While the word "remade" isn't capitalized here, it made me wonder if becoming a Dawnshard requires you to remake yourself: to be broken and pull yourself back together, rather than having something else remake you. Anyway, that's my theory!
  7. You got me thinking... What if the Recreance was done as a stop-gap measure in preparation for Tanavast's death? By renouncing their oaths, the Knights and their spren rendered a large portion of Honor's Investiture inert, so that when Tanavast died, it didn't become dangerous like Ambition, Devotion, and Dominion? Cultivation could've warned them; that, plus the terrible effects of BAM's imprisonment together was what convinced the Radiants and their spren to reject their oaths.
  8. I agree with this. Before Dalinar and Rayse solidified their deal, Rayse mentioned that if either side forfeited, then the other side would immediately have complete and utter control over the forfeited side, able to do anything they wanted. I predict that Todium will use these 10 days to groom Gavinor and convince him to hate Dalinar. On the day of the contest, Dalinar will refuse to kill Gavinor, voiding the contract, and releasing TOdium from his bondage. To me this matches up perfectly with the first two Death Rattles the OP listed. The rest of the book will be the fallout, with a small hint of hope at the end.
  9. It is a phrase that Brandon Sanderson says. He usually says it when fans ask him uncomfortable questions.
  10. Oh my goodness, I didn't catch that!! I was listening to the audio book and didn't catch that! That's awesome!
  11. This made me more emotional than Kaladin's 4th ideal. Storm you, Moash!!
  12. I thought it was the singers/some Fused and humans banding together to fight the other Fused. That's a game changing scene. Or, maybe it was Kaladin talking to Tien. Actually, I just convinced myself that's what it was.
  13. This is a terrible idea, but if Brandon pulled it off, it would be cool: Book 5 has 10 parts, each lasting one day. Then there is a double ketek at the end. My serious guess is that the first nine days last for all of Part 1, with Tod setting up his big bad loophole, Part 2 is the actual contest, which Tod wins, Parts 3 and 4 show Dalinar in Damnation, and everyone else looking for their own loophole. Part 5... I don't know. I could see it ending in a happy or sad ending. :/
  14. Just finished! Teft!! Actually got a little teary eyed Ishar being super creepy with the spren creeped me out. What's the deal with that? Ugh, was very much hoping for Taravangian to die. Not excited for him as the new Odium. Oh, snap, Wit, you got cocky. Good job. That legitimately frightens me. Thaidakar is now ID'd. I'm so excited for "The Lost Metal!" Also, very pleased with Adolin, Shallan, Pattern, and Maya' plot line. Enjoyed that a lot! Loved the anti-Light lore!!
  15. That Death Rattle has always bugged me, but your theory makes me believe you're on to something. I've been rereading Mistborn Era 1 and the spear is very prominent. Something in the back of my mind kept whispering to me that it can't be a coincidence that Kaladin prefers the spear and that the spear is the icon of the Church of the Survivor. Why would Brandon Sanderson use the spear in such a significant role in two series??? I'm excited to see if this pans out.
