  1. game

    Oh, I meant to put Ishikk.
  2. game

    Shardhammer, Ghostbloods, Sigzil, Hrdalm, and T'Telir are the remaining Stormlight choices. T'Telir has not much real link. Hrdalm fought Sadeas' army, presumably, but I think the link is tenuous. Sigzil was in Sadeas' army. Ghostbloods do not include Sadeas. Shardhammer was used by Sadeas. I think it's Shardhammer and Sigzil.
  3. Granted, but all the authors maintain their below-average-even-for-the-20th century standards and morals. I wish that Robert Jordan had not died.
  4. Granted, but every time you take control of a single insect you must first make it eat an ounce of your flesh before issuing any other commands. I wish for Guns n' Roses to bring back the classic lineup and go on tour with a new album.
  5. game

    I'd like to join as well
  6. Granted, but you don't own any of them and after a couple hundred years of immortality you become suicidal. I wish for all of the nuclear warheads on Earth to detonate all at once, in whatever military bases they're kept in.
  7. game

    I'd go with Ghostbloods or 17th Shard cause those are the cool ones.
  8. Granted, but only within a minute of you truthfully saying "This sentence is a lie." I wish for more paper.
  9. The Lord Ruler took off his mask, revealing that he was actually...
  10. game

    Since we're in agreement, Ambition and Arelon will be our first two guesses. Svrakiss does make sense for Sel instead of Elantris, but I don't want to be the one to commit that.
  11. game

    Arelon does seem like a definite. Roial was an inhabitant of Sel - and a fairly prominently featured one in the narrative. Svrakiss were cultural elements. Literally just Demons but on a Selish religion. Roial was more prominent in Elantris, so I'd guess him over Svrakiss, but it could go either way.
  12. The reason Allomancy doesn't match Preservation is because Shardic Intents are not self directed. I don't have the WoB, but Shard Intents are applied to the Shard's outward actions, not to themselves. Preservation isn't about self-Preservation, and Ruin isn't inherently suicidal. Preservation's magic system preserves all the power of the user - it doesn't expend any of it, as happens in Feruchemy. In Feruchemy, everything comes from the user. Stuff is expended, not preserved. Allomancy has power coming from Preservation, thus preserving all the person's power.
  13. It's also possible that he wasn't an Allomancer, rather an allomantic carrier. He has the sGenes for it, but they aren't expressed.
  14. How do you transfer it to the Cognitive Realm? You can't use a Perpendicularity, because no Shard's Perpendicularity would be big enough.
  15. She was definitely raised with Southern Scadrian culture. Why else would she have their mask-wearing habits? It doesn't mean that she has their religion, but she definitely has some major cultural elements from them.
  16. That's true. Except we do know that the Diagram is highly flawed, and there are many facts that it got wrong. He could know the Radiantspren, or he could not.
  17. Why do we assuming Taravangian is right? Knowing that Radiant powers come from spren is already above what most people knew. Why do we assume he knows which spren bond with Radiants? I think it's entirely possible that he doesn't, and his statement that it could bless a Radiant isn't certainly true.
  18. Granted, but you still feel like you need it while being unable to do so, meaning that as time goes on you have a harder and harder time with thought, motivation, and life in general. I wish for 25 copies of every tabletop gaming miniature that has been commercially mass-produced.
  19. Granted, but it's all from horse apples(no, that does not mean apples that horses eat). I wish for there to be peas among all the nations of the world.
  20. Granted, but what you know is wrong. I wish for the Star Wars cantina music to be constantly audible to everyone on the Earth.
  21. game

    I'm pretty sure Nazh also lives in Silverlight. I'd guess Khriss first, and then Silverlight, but Ambition could work. Ambition feels like it's 2 steps away from Nazh, however, instead of the 1 step away that Silverlight is.
  22. Speaking of Sadeas reminds me of another one of my big issues. In Way of Kings and for much of Words of Radiance, he was a great character. He was genuinely trying to help Alethkar in the way he thought best, despite how it set him against one of his oldest friends. Near the end of Words of Radiance, though, he lost that. He just became another power hungry villain, and Ialai stayed that way in Oathbringer. They actively work against the best interests of the kingdom and lose all appeal as good characters.
  23. Cosmere Discussion is a spoiler board.
  24. Moash gave up. He gave away his pain and basically just surrendered himself to the new cause. That's what takes my respect for him away: not his assassinate-Elhokar plot, not his actual killing of Elhokar, but the fact that he gave up.
  25. If he would not willingly do so, why was it done voluntarily?
