  1. I think it is time that this thread came to a close. I have been watching it for a very long time and debating what to do with it - I don’t want to take away a space where people can share their grievances, which is why this thread has been allowed to go dormant and then be necro’d multiple times. However, this thread has also seen multiple instances of conflict which, at some point, needs to be addressed beyond the scope of the individuals causing issues. I want people to be able to express their feelings, but also I do not want to have to monitor a thread like a hawk for over a year because I know there will be inevitable conflict, that isn’t a setup that is sustainable. Because of this I am closing this thread - if you have things you want to talk about regarding Shallan then I encourage you to please start new threads about the specific things you want to talk/vent/discuss about! (Do not just remake this thread, I will close it) I know there are multiple things in Brandon books that I absolutely loath and it is incredibly frustrating when people constantly jump in and invalidate your opinion. So please, do not take this as me trying to prevent you venting about Shallan or any other aspects of the books - it is just not feasible to continue doing it here. I do want to thank most people who have been hopping in and out of this thread over the last year - the vast majority of you have done very well at being respectful of other opinions. For those who have felt the need to defend Shallan - I do get it, it’s frustrating to see someone complain about X thing you love. However, if that is the case, then this thread is not for you and it is unhelpful and unnecessary to jump in and try and defend a character in a space where people just want to complain. You’re very welcome to make your own thread about what you love about X thing, and I would encourage you to do so! Both venting and praise threads can exist simultaneously, and they aren’t there for people to debate the opinions in any given thread. People don’t go to a thread like this to defend their opinion or be convinced they’re wrong, they go there so they can vent with likeminded people without having to constantly defend their thoughts. These tags aren’t used very often but we do encourage people to use them when making new threads - it’s a similar idea to what happens on Reddit (I think) so that other users are aware from the get go that any given threads is a [Support] (aka Vent), or [Discussion] thread.
  2. Had to make this for Shardcast so wanted to throw it here for easy access.
  3. Agreement was to just remove these completely, though I don't know exactly when it'll happen.
  4. Good question, I’ll post it to staff and get back to you.
  5. The official US cover for the fourth Wax and Wayne book is here! The US publisher, Tor, have officially released the cover for The Lost Metal, designed and created by the talented Chris McGrath. This is the second of Brandon’s big publishers to release a cover design, with the UK cover being revealed on May 18th. As a reminder, the book releases November 15th in the UK and US (release dates in other regions and languages vary by publisher). Generally, hardcover, audiobook, and eBook are released at about the same time, and the US paperback a year later. Links to pre-order The Lost Metal from US retailers can be found in the Tor article. In Tor’s announcement, Chris goes into some detail about how he found Brandon’s books and it is equal parts adorable and relatable. Turns out Chris got as sucked in by Mistborn just like the rest of us. Looking to do a Mistborn re-read in preparation for The Lost Metal’s release? Then you should check out our new re-read podcast, Spanreads, and we can all read along together! Currently we’re working through Era 1, but will have Era 2 episodes coming out in a few months time in the run up to release of the last Mistborn book! Spanreads releases on Wednesday’s. Check out our playlist to see all the released episodes! Are you a fan of RPG’s? Do you like Dungeons and Dragons? Big fan of Critical Role and Dimension 20? Why not check out Diceborn, our new Mistborn role playing game! Diceborn is run with the Mistborn Adventure Game rule set produced by Crafty Games, a story driven RPG set in Era 2 Mistborn which follows our five crew members, Dervish (Overlord Jebus), Royce (WeiryWriter), Hallie (Kaymyth), Marelyn (GaterGirl00), and Luca (Comatose). Diceborn releases every second Monday, alternating with Shardcast. Check out the first episode and meet all of our heroes!
  6. I assume this is what you’re referring to? https://coppermind.net/wiki/Steel_Inquisitor#/media/File%3AInquisitor.jpg This comes from the Mistborn Adventure Game and is uncanonnical. The Hemalurgy table should be correct.
  7. Unfortunately our spoiler policy is that until the book is released all prereleased material is to be kept off then Coppermind. This will need to stay as written until then. Thank you for checking though!
  8. This thread is being closed for how old it is. If you want to talk about it further please start a new topic.

  11. Hey Daniel! Unfortunately I don't think there's a raysium symbol at the moment. The closest that's been released is what we think is a Rayse/Odium symbol from one of the glyph pages in RoW (bottom right).https://coppermind.net/w/images/Alethi_Glyphs_Page_2.jpg. Book five might have a specific raysium symbol but it's a bit of a mystery at the moment. Sorry there isn't something more I can suggest! Good luck with your tattoo!
  12. Just stepping in quickly to give a general reminder to the room about being respectfully when talking about mental illness, as dismissing or demeaning them is harmful and you never know who might be lurking and being affected by your words. Otherwise y’all look to be having a great dialogue so far, have at it. Kudos to you all for being respectful of each other’s opinions even when they differ.
  13. The Coppermind board isn’t the best place for these questions. I’ve moved this topic to the Cosmere board instead, please just remember this board is ROW spoiler free (including in spoiler tags). Have fun!
  14. Congratulations on your marraige!

  15. It's generally a mixture of people who are working on the articles or who find neat art and have been given permission to use it. There are a few dedicated editors who focus on art, but largely it is a combination of people.
