  1. It's the J-A-D-A I got beef with the feds and the D.A.
  2. Kelsier <3 Good characters in TES too. Shai and Gaotona <3 Thank you for your answers. People know you a little bit better now. Hope you enjoy yourself here!
  3. Welcome! I was wondering why no one had replied yet. People are usually quick to welcome new users, to offer them cookies (some of which, apparently, contain hemalurgic spikes... but don't quote me on this) and to ask them a few questions. To answer your question: I agree. It was easy to read TFE many times, but I haven't read WoA and HoA more than twice. I did it after reading Era 2 and Secret History, as it was fun to look for hints I had missed here and there. Tbh, I still like WoA and HoA better than Elantris, which is the only book I haven't read twice. I don't usually do this, but since nobody else posted: 1) Who's your favorite Cosmere character? 2) Which is your favorite Sanderson book? 3) Are you a regular teaspoon or a shardspoon? 4) If you were a Knight Radiant, from which order do you think you'd be? Once again, welcome!
  4. Yes, exactly! From Mr. Sanderson website (https://brandonsanderson.com/edgedancer-is-out/):
  5. Well, though I prefer all of Stormlight Archive and some books in the Mistborn series (The Final Empire, Shadows of Self), I highly recommend it. IMO it is much, much better than Elantris (I'm quite sure most people here would agree), and it is very rewarding in terms of Cosmere-knowledge. The characters are a lot more interesting, memorable (and loveable) too. I bought my copy of Warbreaker because I didn't know any better, but apparently, the ebook can be downloaded for free: https://brandonsanderson.com/books/warbreaker/warbreaker/warbreaker-rights-and-downloads/
  6. Congratulations on noticing the problem and taking steps to correct it. May this road lead you to inner peace. I mostly lurk, here, but I haven't witnessed nasty behavior such as can easily be found on Reddit without looking for it. I guess the worst you'll get here are quasi-flamewars about SKA, but even that is pretty mild by Reddit standards. I do not know if 17thSharders are naturally polite or if they fear the banhammer, but either way, they are pretty well behaved.
  7. And Warbreaker?
  8. Read Edgedancer in between! Welcome!
  9. Which book is next on your list? Is Edgedancer even on your radar?
  10. Queen Jasnah vs Unmade Highprincess Ba-Ado-Mishram will be the Stormlight Archive's Cleganebowl. GET HYPE
  11. Chapter 120, page 1179 of the ebook: Given context, I don't think "coercion" is the right word. If you "mustn't order stones", then coercion is even less likely to yield the desired results. If you must "speak of freedom and of movement" to convince them to change, then the proper word would be "persuasion"... or maybe "cajolery".
  12. It's not a typo so to speak, but there are a lot of "try and"s instead of "try to"s in the first era of Mistborn (like in Elantris). Even the narrator uses "try and", so it can't always be chalked up to a character's speech in an informal setting (and pretty much every character says it anyway, including well spoken ones like Elend or Breeze). There are far fewer instances in era 2 and Stormlight, so I guess you're all aware of it.
  13. I like "Serial Thrilla" by Nergaoul The Prodigy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmaBE7ZJ8cE Damage destructor Crowd disruptor You corruptor Everytimer.. Yea! Damage destructor Crowd disruptor Mainliner Everytimer.. Taste Me, Taste Me! Succumb to me, Succumb to me! Taste Me, Taste Me! Succumb to me, Succumb to me! Serial Thrilla, serious killa! Serial Thrilla, serious killa! Serial Thrilla, serious killa! Serial Thrilla, serious killa! Damage destructor Crowd disruptor Mainliner Everytimer.. Taste Me, Taste Me! Succumb to me, Succumb to me! Serial Thrilla, serious killa! Serial Thrilla, serious killa! Serial Thrilla, serious killa! Serial Thrilla,…
  14. I think I've read a discussion between Jasnah and Shallan, where Shallan seemed somewhat outraged by the idea of trapping spren (even lesser ones), whereas Jasnah seemed fine with it (at least where lesser ones were concerned). Perhaps inkspren aren't as uncomfortable with the idea as honorspren might be. I also recall Captain Ico's comments about using shardblades/deadeyes as tools, and referring to himself as "pragmatic". I think some higher spren could indeed be "okay" with it.
