  1. Soulcasting antimatter would probably be about as devastating as it gets. It would probably be pretty simple too. Antiparticles share all of their traits with their complementary particles, so it's really just a matter of changing their charge. Obviously advanced physics doesn't fit well with the setting of Roshar, and these abilities would break the story. For both of those reasons I doubt that we will ever see Soulcasting reach this level.
  2. I imagine that he does create new Fused when the opportunity arises. The issue is that he would need a singer that is worth making into a Fused, and who is willing. Mistborn stuff
  3. I feel like the "She's strong because she was raped" theme is way to prevalent in TV and books. Women can be strong, capable & independent without being raped. I agree with what Brandon said in the link @Elegy provided.
  4. I was only wondering because the limb is still attached to a living body, so I wasn't sure if that made a difference.
  5. That's like saying that taking a handful of dirt into space makes the Earth smaller. It is technically true, but also completely meaningless.
  6. What happens if you cut someones limb twice? If it's already "dead", does it get cut off instead?
  7. I'm making this thread so I can stop derailing the Era 3 thread. Here's a link if you want to catch up (or post about what you want to see in Era 3). Era 3 Thread Ok, to the subject at hand. Is Kelsier a good guy or a bad guy? I come out on the good guy side. According to WoBs, Kelsier is a psychopath, but if that is true, then he is a badly written character, in my opinion. I can't think of any specific instance of him doing something that would make me think he lacked empathy or remorse. Nothing in the books ever gave me the feeling that he was anything other than a revolutionary that was trying to make the world a better place.
  8. I wonder if Melishi killed himself when he saw the results of what he did. We can be reasonably sure that none of the Bondsmith spren are deadeyes, so something had to have happened to him before the Recreance.
  9. I bet a Bondsmith could trap them in the gemhearts that they inhabit, then kill the bodies and keep the gem hearts locked up somewhere. Basically, the knife that killed Jezrien without the knife.
  10. In reference to the Mistborn stuff in the spoiler tag. As for Hoid being a Shard/QuasiShard/Other, The Letter gives us a pretty good clue as to his feeling about being a Shard, specifically, Egli's response.
  11. @Karger I don't know if Roshar will have a need for electricity. Most of what we do with electricity now could be achieved with fabrials instead. Relevant WoB, spoilered for Mistborn and Whitesand Seems like a good reason to keep a Bondsmith in residence.
  12. I'm pretty sure you would just be on the other side of the world.
  13. They would need F-zinc or F-steel in order to change their push/pull location that fast, IMO. I'm not gonna attempt the math, but that thing would probably be spinning 10k+ RPM.
  14. Use fabrials to make a platform fly. Keep it over the Highstorm at all times so that it never runs out of Stormlight. Expand it until you have a flying city that moves with the Highstorm. New and improved headquarters of the Knights Radiant, where they always have access to their powers. It would pretty much be a Rosharan Elantris.
  15. It's also possible that Cultivation is the origin of some of those other religions. Mistborn Era 2 spoilers
  16. I expect the Stonewards to have an oath like the end of the pararescueman's creed, "That others may live".
  17. I can't believe I forgot The Lord Mistborn. Lefting I'm Born - I have to go with Dustbringer (Brave, Obedient) Survivor of the Flames says everything for brave. He spends most of the first two books getting bossed around and doesn't seem to mind that much for obedient. Post the end of the world I lean more towards Bondsmith (Pious, Guiding) He's always had faith in Kelsier, and he is the leader of the new world. Leading isn't guiding, but they're fairly similar. Leaving his book behind for future generations could be guiding as well I guess.
  18. I would be very surprised (and disappointed) if aluminum killed Adonalsium. I would expect the murder weapon to be more related to Spiritual Connection, as it is the only force (that I can think of) we have seen directly effect Shards. The orb that Kelsier stole from the Ire and the Oathpact being prime examples.
  19. I promised myself I wouldn’t derail any more threads talking about this topic, so I will agree to disagree.
  20. Something like these I imagine. Oath 2: "I will stay the course, I will not falter" Oath 3: "I will have the wisdom to question my choices, even when I believe they are right" One of the oaths will probably have to do with building where others destroy. I'm going off of the Divine Attributes of the Willshapers for this, Resolute and Builder.
  21. Usually UPS, but sometimes Fedex and USPS. USPS is unreliable from my experience and costs the same. Also, could we get this thread back on topic? It's supposed to be about shipping...
  22. I saw someone do TWOT characters in the necro'd Radiant thread and it made me want to do it. Basing this off of divine attributes again. Spoilered because this is a Cosmere thread.
  23. I’ll never understand “He didn’t go to Mare, He’s selfish” argument. If someone loses a loved one, are they selfish for not killing themselves to join them? Kelsier learned that there actually is an eternal afterlife, and decided to explore this world for a little while longer. Seems pretty normal to me.
  24. Worried about losing small piece aluminum because he's careless. Willing to die for it. I imagine the real reason is that if he did use an aluminum vial, enemies couldn't push his metals, and that wouldn't work for some of the scenes.
  25. Rayse wins and destroys Roshar. Everyone but him dies.
