  1. This is exactly like Guess That Cosmere Character. But with places. Try not to go as big as a Shardworld or "all of Dayside!" for your place, though you can use hints like "it's on Threnody". Countries, cities, warcamps, towns, forests, mountains, anything like that is what you want to use. Clue number one: We have currently never seen this place firsthand in a book.
  2. Hello! If you’re reading this without having read Ten of the Void, the first Augury thread, then you need to know two things right now. First, this is a sequel to that. Second, you don’t need to have participated in TotV to participate in this chapter of the adventure! We’d still love to have you if you want to join. So if you’re new and don’t want to read the old thread, or plan to do it later but want to jump in with the RP, here’s what you need to know. (This is also where the Augury itself can be referenced.) Character List: * Izzy sighed. Gati raised an eyebrow, capping eyes that hinted at amusement. “You’ve gotten bored already?” “Aren’t you? All we’re doing is walking.” “I guess being in the presence of multiple gods has worn off, then,” he said, smiling openly, and waved at their surroundings. Green trees permeated with the faint sounds of animals were the majority of the view. “Plus, scenery.” “The scenery is okay,” she mumbled. “But I don’t like walking.” “Technically, the horses are walking.” They’d gotten them at a horse trader back in Fel; Izzy didn’t know what Gati had said or done to get them, but he’d come back out with two horses, one for each of them. Izzy sighed again, matched by Gati grinning, and on they went. *** @Ookla the Maybe-Existent At some points during his journey, Price slept, and as humans do, he dreamed. The very instant one of these began, something took it in its hands and changed it. It swept away whatever would have been in the dream before - a nightmare, a memory, a replaying of the day’s events, jumbled nonsense - and replaced it with a room: wherever Price knew best. Whichever room was closest and most important to him. It was a flawless reproduction, down to the most precise detail imaginable, every atom no different from the room itself; except of course, one was real, and the other in a dream. Yet as exact as the replica was, as much as Price would recognize it...it would feel unfamiliar. Sitting in a chair in this room was a figure. It was impossible to tell the figure’s age, sex, or the color of any of their features. They were not obscured, but as soon as the information was acquired by your eyes and interpreted by your brain, your mind’s record of it vanished. There was a fuzz at their edges, where the air grayed slightly; looking at it for very long gave you a headache. What could be told about them, after some time of watching, was that their eyes were open, and they did not once blink. All of this was in place within the first heartbeat of Price’s dream. By the time he himself had entered it, the figure was smiling, hands spread just slightly, welcoming. “Hello, Pryclin Evada. May I have a moment of your time?” *** @Sorana At some points during her journey, Sagitta slept, and as humans do, she dreamed. The very instant one of these ended, something took it in its hands and changed it. It swept away whatever had been in the dream before - a nightmare, a memory, a replaying of the day’s events, jumbled nonsense - and replaced it with a room: wherever Sagitta knew best. Whichever room was closest and most important to her. It was a flawless reproduction, down to the most precise detail imaginable, every atom no different from the room itself; except of course, one was real, and the other in a dream. Yet as exact as the replica was, as much as Sagitta would recognize it...it would feel unfamiliar. Sitting in a chair in this room was a figure.

There was a fuzz at their edges, where the air grayed slightly; looking at it for very long gave you a headache. What could be told about them, after some time of watching, was that their eyes were closed, and they did not once open. All of this was in place within the last heartbeat of Sagitta’s dream. By the time she herself had entered it, the figure was smiling, arms crossed, one leg causally set over the other. “Hello, Sagitta T’Sora. May I have a moment of your time?”
  3. People do come in and out, but there’s nothing that permanently eliminates you.
  4. [s.] words [/s] without the period
  5. *drinks from the cup of insanity*
  6. *intercepts them* By being in TUBA
  7. I’d say it’s reasonable, Fate has said it’s possible people with connections to the Alleyplanet who didn’t live there could still be affected, iirc. (What’s the third power you mentioned? Is it a secret?)
  8. I don’t think it is rushed. Brandon spends some time on it, but it was never the focus of the book or even their characterizations. In the end Kaladin tells Syl that he wasn’t interested in Shallan romantically, just that she made him feel like Tien did. They’re friends. Looking back at the chasm scene, there was nothing particularly romantic about it? It was a good scene, to be sure, but both readings of it are valid. I loved all of OB’s ending; it felt like an end that made sense considering what we’d been given, and most importantly, it made all the characters involved happy. (Except maybe Syl, lol) In addition to what’s already been brought up, we didn’t have her POV on the matter. She’s very adept at handling her mental state covertly, to the point where people often don’t notice anything is up at all. Kaladin also wasn’t in the best position - literally - to view her body language. For all we know she was gritting her teeth and sobbing inwardly as she handed Pattern to him. And welcome to the Shard! Any other SA ships you could squee about?
  9. Welcome to the Shard! Adolin is definitely great.
  10. Welcome to the Shard! I like how your title led into your post.
  11. Welcome to the Shard!
  12. You rolled a nat one. What’s the sentence
  13. You don’t know that, because we haven’t seen what they’re like without being misguided. They’re following a god and a religious figure.
  14. Eh, either way, we’ll make sure the cookies are safe. No worries, Reading
  15. You’ll have a what now?
  16. Welcome! I haven’t listened to the audiobooks.
  17. The Alleyverse isn’t just cosmere. We check because we’ve had people sabotage us in the past, and also for basic health concerns.
  18. Don’t we have technology that lets us do that?
  19. Obviously they need to make changes. That doesn’t mean that the Skybreakers, as an order, have bad goals. It just means that they’re currently misguided.
  20. Yeah, but we know that this isn’t the Skybreakers’ normal behavior, this is them corrupted under Nale - who’s insane, like all the Heralds - and Odium. As they are right now they’re pretty bad, but all orders are supposed to be equally good, just in different ways.
  21. Oh wow, that’s...yikes. I feel so awful for your puppy.
  22. Welcome to the Shard! Don’t worry about being good at theories, that’s not the only thing we do here.
