  1. Shoutout to @Oversleep for his timeline post. That was really helpful finding info on how the rest of the books are connected.
  2. The citation on this is incorrect as well; Khriss' experiments on sand occur in White Sand 2, Chapter 5, and her test of terken carapace in Chapter 6.
  3. I was looking through the Coppermind, the Interactions with Investiture section in the article on Sandlings says "She eventually realizes that the sand gains a microflora after being ingested by the sandlings," which I believe is an error. In the scene where Khriss is explaining the differences between the sands, she says sand that has been ingested by sandlings has been stripped of the invested microflora, and so appears like Darkside sand. The microflora must not come from the digestive system of sandlings then, but instead from something that evolved (or was created) specifically to harness the investiture from Dayside's sun, and presumably just spreads from coated sand to post-digested sand.
  4. I disagree, as Kenton is seen in the center of the panel surrounded by glowing sand, standing next to Ais. The hooded assassin with the incorrect speech bubble can be seen in the next picture in the same place relative to the assassin with the pony tail. Also, as I was looking through the Coppermind, the Interactions with Investiture section in the article on Sandlings says "She eventually realizes that the sand gains a microflora after being ingested by the sandlings," which I believe is an error. In the scene where Khriss is explaining the differences between the sands, she says sand that has been ingested by sandlings has been stripped of the invested microflora, and so appears like Darkside sand.
  5. I'm not sure if it's an error, because of this WoB (https://wob.coppermind.net/events/80/#e5294) saying there is more crem buildup on the eastern side of mountains, implying the continent would be shifting toward rather than away from the Origin.
  6. Continuing a discussion from the comments of this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hw7qijXKnv8 In order to compensate for the erosion that would occur from the highstorms, Brandon designed a system where stone could be laid down by rain. (https://wob.coppermind.net/events/161/#e4422) According to the Coppermind entry on Roshar, this results in the entire continent gradually shifting to the east, because crem builds up on the eastern side of things as highstorms travel from east to west. However, wouldn't highstorms instead push crem deposits around to the west and erode the eastern edge, shifting the continent to the west?
  7. We know fire is incredibly dangerous on Roshar because of the increased oxygen level in its atmosphere, which most of the world overcomes by using invested gemstones to provide light. However, those gems become invested in highstorms, which don't really impact Shinovar in any significant way. What do the people of Shinovar use for light?
  8. We know that the continent of Roshar (Cosmic address: Roshar, Roshar, Greater Roshar, The Knight, The Cosmere) was originally created by Adonalsium, and that Shinovar, at least after the arrival of humanity from Ashyn, is the only place on the planet that has "normal" flora and fauna - no spren, plants growing in soil, similar plants and animals to what we see on Earth/other planets. Did Shinovar always exist as this bastion of normalcy, or was the entire continent of Roshar created with "typical" life forms on it, and then just got scraped clean by the highstorms, leaving it open for other life to evolve?
  9. What do you guys think?
  10. Who do you think the Ones Above are?
