  1. Personally I thought that most magic systems predate the shattering, and that shards were drawn to some rather than others by their intents. Scadrial is a definite exception, in that the shards created the planet itself so they obviously created systems according to their own intent. The belief however that systems predate shardic intervention is well founded considering we have already seen a planet with a natural investiture pool (sixth of the dusk), know that spren predate the shattering, know the parish are natives of roshar, and they together can access the surges.
  2. Moash would not be a dark bondsmith, and would have the wind runner variance of the adhesion surge, albeit he would be uberpowerful with a direct investiture tie to honor, it is still unknown A if that is what the gem does and B that the direct tie even still functions after the splintering. So far, the only herald seen surge binding is Nale, who is known to have attracted and bonded a spren.
  3. Also, most of his voidbringers have gone mental, so it’s best not to give them any more power than they have already.
  4. It is thought by many of us on the site that the sibling is no longer in Urithiru, and on the bit that she might not be broken, we have a WOB somewhere that spren bonding does not require that, but does facilitate it.
  5. Part of the difference I’m sure comes from the fact that Scadrian humans are shardic constructs, literally born from the investiture that also permeates their world. I think this leads to increased cognitive visibility and interactive ability.
  6. Another point to support this theory is the red eyes of the fused. The color red in the cosmere has special significance, in that it points to a hacked magic system, in this case the fused hacking surgebinding.
  7. Got it thanks for the clarification
  8. I was comparing them more to avatars such as what Autonomy creates, so as to explain why shades appear in the physical realm, while Kel was stuck in the cognitive.
  9. I had posted this idea in another topic, but it had apparently necro’d so no one saw it, link below. It had gone into the nature of shades as cognitive entities. Could what makes the shades different from other cognitive entities be that they are partial avatars? I know we don’t know a lot about avatars yet, but it is assumed they have access to the shard’s shardpool, correct? When a shade kills someone therefore, it suffuses them not just with investiture, but the shardpool of Ambition, connecting with the dormant parts of Ambition already in the spiritweb of natives from Threnody. Death separates the physical body, but the cognitive entity is forced back into the physical realm with the same pressure of the dor from Sel, because the investiture is trying to find purchase in the physical realm. Cognitive entity loses its mind during the transition from cognitive to physical like spren from Roshar. If this is true, could shades be avatars missing their bodies?
  10. Not sure what you mean by both surges and the void. The power set has always been surges, and every rosharan magic system accesses them. Voidbinding is different from surgebinding only in fuel and the twist on the surges inherent of the different magic system. So far it seems that twist is a shift from a cognitive surge focus to a spiritual surge focus. I do hope we see more of voidbinding though, as that system is very interesting to me.
  11. Or maybe even hatred towards Cultivation because he feels that he wasn’t given the capacity he wanted to save everyone after seeing Odium’s show of power.
  12. It was Taravangion or one of his cronies. The wall turned to smoke, not mist, something we’ve seen soulcasted before by Jasnah, and they knew who and what to kill by the diagram.
  13. Could what makes the shades different from other cognitive entities be that they are partial avatars?

Death separates the physical body, but the cognitive entity is forced back into the physical realm with the same pressure of the dor. Cognitive entity loses its mind etc etc. If this is true, could shades be avatars missing their bodies?
  14. Always enjoyed the Kaladin-paladin rhyme myself
  15. WeiryWriter Are there any other species in the cosmere that also interact with the Rhythms like the listeners do? (Though not necessarily in the same way?) Brandon Sanderson Yes. And I’m sure having numerous breaths would aid him. Not saying He wrote it, just pointing something out.
