  1. There's always the one who name their character Wolf or Raven. It needs a Roshan equivalent. ChickenMink Stormwind, the Stonewalker Ranger.
  2. I think it would need a mythical monster in the title. Chasms & Thunderclasts? Thunderclasts don't have anything to do with chasms, but then I never did figure out how dragons got stuffed into dungeons.
  3. Chickens and Chasmfiends would totally be the name for their Monster Manual.
  4. Perhaps, to build on that, it is because Syl would be the only Honorspren to actually remember Tanavast, and so when she picked her Knight she chose someone close to what Tanavast was like. The other Honorspren were all made after the Recreance, and possibly after the concept of honor had changed.
  5. Adolin thought rebel assassins were responsible for his mother's death, so I don't think he ever blamed Sadeas for that, so I don't think it was a factor Adolin killing Sadeas. Blaming Sadeas for Rathalas may have had an indirect effect, since it showed that Sadeas had a history of fixing problems by killing them along with the several thousand people standing closest, so Sadeas's threat to keep on doing what he was doing may have had more weight. Though I think Sadeas's recent behavior, which included intentionally getting thousands of Adolin's men slaughtered, was enough.
  6. If there is one thing Kaladin and Shallan have painfully demonstrated, it's that they not only have to know their next oath (or truth), but also mean it. I am surprised Pattern didn't spend much of the time in Oathbringer spinning in place on the floor. I expect the fourth oath does relate to something Lirin tried to teach Kaladin. I think Kaladin needs to accept the ideals of triage, by finding a way to prioritize who to help first, because he can't help everyone at once. I also think it would be interesting if Teft passed Kaladin in oaths, just for how awkward it would be. Not sure if Teft could get there so quickly, since he still has issues with what happened to the Envisagers (sp?) after he turned them in. Teft might have some serious issues with himself about knowing what is right. Not sure I could take it seriously if The Lopen is the one to pass Kaladin. Those were the only two developed as having spren in Oathbringer, and I don't think I'd like it if someone random is suddenly at fourth oath without it having been developed on page.
  7. Okay, but is a Soulcaster soulcasting the person's actual soul, or the soul of their meatbag? Meatbag makes more sense to me, since I can understand meat deciding so easily it will change to fire or crystal, but if trying to get the person to agree to change, I feel like the answer would just be straight up "NO" unless the person was suicidal. As it is, I feel like the meat is being pretty traitorous throwing out the person it houses so readily, but I guess that's what I should expect when it has meat-for-brains.
  8. I wonder how hard it is for any Radiant to reach their fourth oath. There was a Skybreaker who told Szeth that most Skybreakers only reached the third oath, and that she spent two decades at third oath before swearing her fourth. On the other hand Dalinar's vision of Feverstone Keep showed hundreds of Radiants with both armor and sword. On the other other hand, both Jasnah and Shallan seem to be on their fourth oath, with about six years with their spren and Shallan even having taken an extended leave of absence for most of that time. Hard to tell how quick or often is usual for the fourth oath being reached.
  9. Oh. I think it's fine to use future sight as a defining characteristic of Truthwatchers, because Renarin is our one example right now, and even though his spren is corrupted it is probably some sort of twisted version of what the normal surge can do. At this point it is part of the joke, just like taking characteristics of our other Radiants and applying them to the entire Order.
  10. Seems I misremembered: It wasn't the Desolations but the Voidbringers that the Envisagers wanted to return. Though that is similar, and close to what what the Sons of Honor were trying. Maybe the remnants of the Envisagers formed the Sons of Honor. I wonder where Teft was from originally. He was in Sadeas's warcamp, but he still could have originated anywhere in Alethkar, I suppose. It is odd to realize that anyone middle aged or older didn't grow up in a united Alethkar.
  11. I swear Teft said that the Envisagers wanted to return the Desolations. Gave me a bit of a shock on a reread. It was that chapter in WoR where he was on rotation with Sigzil waiting for Kaladin to come out of the chasms. I can check for it later when I am near my books.
  12. Lirin was a courier who travelled to Kharbranth in his younger days. So he has been there.
  13. Perhaps Ivory trained Jasnah. The first time she saw him, he flourished a blade, so I presumed he is proficient with weapons in Shadesmar.
  14. Next time they all had a meeting, I'd send a box of sky eels for Jasnah and a box of mink kits for Kaladin. Jasnah would run around happily with her new pets on leashes; Adolin would end up cuddling the mink kits until he got finally Kaladin to admit that, yes, they were actually adorable, and hold one; Shallan would furiously try to draw everything; Renarin would hide off to the side smiling; and Dalinar would facepalm. Anyway, that's how it would all go down in my head.
