  1. My biggest grievance with him was how stupid he was really. He could have given the nine Lerasium beads to female Feruchemists and started making babies. Scadrial would be populated with Fullborn and it wouldn’t matter what the climate looked like. Every thousand years they could have used the Well to spruce the place up a little.
  2. I always got a spoiled brat vide from Rashek. He’s only intimidating because of his powers. At the end of the day he’s lazy and stupid. Anyone else with the same powers would be more intimidating imo.

  4. In terms of pure intimidation I think an Inquisitor wins. The spikes through the eyes would be very unnerving. Scary in terms of what they’ve done, probably Rashek. The way he managed to ruin a pretty straight forward situation is terrifying. There were a million better ways but he opted for the most sadistic one he could come up with. Scary in terms of potential, Dalinar ties with the Ire. Dalinar because he’s a Demi-Shard and the entire world hinges on his choices. The Ire because who wouldn’t be scared of an amoral splinter group of Elantrians.
  5. I’m surprised his Spren isn’t on there.
  6. What you can take depends on what the spike is made of. You would also need a bind point that grants the power you stole. I don’t know if humans would have one that is compatible with a Seon’s abilities.
  7. He had been practicing for weeks and was also unusually gifted. I’ll grant it is possible that a young child could learn Aons, but I think it would be uncommon. Any child with the discipline to learn such an advanced skill would probably be trustworthy enough to use it.

  9. I like this idea. @Oltux72 I imagine the child would either be boarded at a school in Elantris, or would live with their family there. I also don't think a young Elantrian would pose much of a threat with Aons because of the large amount of precision required to make them. It's a bit like giving a baby an iPad and worrying that they're going to hack the Pentagon.
  10. Honestly, at the rate the CGI is improving, we probably only need to wait 10 years for a "live action" version of the Cosmere that doesn't even require real actors. All they need is Andy Serkis in a mocap suit playing all of the characters himself. On the animated front, I've never liked Japanese animation. Something about it just doesn't work for me. If they wanted to try something like the Batman animated movies, I would be on board (though I would still prefer live), but I don't wanna see Vin with little hearts floating out of her eyes when she looks at Elend.
  11. Imagine trying to play online games with that connection. Everyone would be running with a few minutes to a few hours of lag depending on how far away the star is from the planet or space station.
  12. I think the biggest problem with these commands is how general they are, and how difficult it would be to conceptualize what they do. For the computer you would be better off connecting a piece of metal to input and output buses with extremely high bandwidths. Then command the metal piece to "Do Math" while imagining the logical processes involved in semiconductor processors, except at a much higher speed like yotahertz or something. This should get you a logic processor that doesn't get hot and operates several orders of magnitude faster than a standard semiconductor processor. The infinite wifi would be very tough. You can't actually visualize what needs to happen, because the radio waves in question aren't capable of carrying the signal that far. This means that the signal would need to be regenerated from multiple points that do not originate at the type IV. You could probably set up a transmitter and receiver that communicate through the Cognitive realm though. It's flat nature would eliminate the problem of line of sight created by the spherical shape of planets. edit: grammar
  13. Well that muddies the water. So it’s entirely possible that 16% of north Scadrians have Allomantic potential still, but only 1/1000 express it. edit: Or, it could mean that 100% of Scadrians have Allomantic potential and the Mists only snapped 16% of them as a clue. Wish there was a more straight forward answer.
  14. Thanks for pointing that out. I went back a read the relevant part of BoM. It seems that the Mists weren’t actually snapping people at all in era 1. They were actually turning normal people into Allomancers.
  15. This point has never really been clear to me I guess. Were the people that got snapped by the Mists already metalborn that simply needed to be snapped, or where they normal people who gained metalborn powers from the Mists. I've never been quite sure so any WoBs would be appreciated.
