    Lots of stuff
  1. This makes some sense, but I am drawn to the fact that Elantrian power was super nerfed even in Teod, which had just as much access to the Dor, presumably, as Elantris, and the Ire seem way less powerful in the cognitive realm of Scadrial than they do in Elantris in Secret History, even if they can still do amazing things with preparation, those things aren't applicable nearly as easily as AonDor. Maybe that's just because it's in the cognitive realm, but presumably, the thing that allows for Elantrians in the first place IS Elantris. Or do we think that just greatly amplifies the power and harnesses so much of it that if it is imperfect, it totally gets in the way?
  2. The map being part of it makes a lot of sense, but still, the Dor is in Sel's cognitive realm. The mingled power of Devotion and Dominion aren't just overflowing and trying to break their cognitive bounds at any opportunity like they seem to be on Sel (and moreso if there has been no release for a while). Where is the investiture the map is tapping into, since the Dor is more in the cognitive than the spiritual, leaving perhaps a bit less room for Spiritual Mumbo Jumbo?
  3. Okay so I'm the latest book we see Elantrians seem to have most of their powers off Sel. Where does the power come from? I assumed in Lost metal there was still a bunch of unkeyed Dor available. Does the sorceress just have a bunch of invisible Dor in her tower? Or another unkeyed investiture source that can power AonDor? It looked like they didn't have most of their powers off-world back in Secret History, but a lot of time has passed since then.
  4. Hi all, Are we to assume this is space age cosmere? If so is it as late as Sixth of the Dusk? The audience obviously doesn't know about certain technologies, so it seems like THEY aren't yet on the space age, but is anyone?
  5. Why does Ulaam want all sorts of body parts? I think he's a kandra right, but can't kandra make all human organs and tissues besides bones? What's the benefit of a kidney or a liver except to learn to copy them? Also why does he keep himself grey and corpselike? Maybe this is all answered. I'm only halfway done but I couldn't get this out of my head
  6. I'm just wondering whether Brandon nixed this tradition now that he is communicating with us via so many other forums? I look forward to this so much every year and, while I can hardly complain for lack of content I'm a little disappointed this wasn't posted yesterday. Also, this site is definitely the victim of a pretty intense bot attack. Or a really annoying persistent human.
  7. Yeah, I read this as, "As of now there is only one dragon that is a shard that you know about." And that this says nothing about Edgli or Bhavadin for sure.
  8. Who was the one who jumped at the end of Skyward, Spensa or Doomslug?
  9. I don't think either a shard blade to the spine or decapitation would kill a fullborn assuming they were actively tapping gold at the time and had enough health stored, which any competent fullborn would do most of the time, and which both Miles and the Lord Ruler definitely did. I don't think there would be much a fullborn could do to counter Ishar once he got started but with prep I be they could do plenty to defend against it. They could probably kill Ishar before he made a move by combining the speed of steel and zinc with pewter and tin though; the heralds have all died before.
  10. I think the answer is and has to be "yes", but I suspect it won't be until the end of the latter half of the back 5, so we're waiting 15-20 years for it.
  11. Would stormlight healing etc. Destroy Borg nanoprobes and prevent assimilation? I just had a dream about this and wanted to ask other people's thoughts.
  12. Is the mechanism by which Slatrification occurs like soulcasting, but only sand to water, do we think?
  13. Ohhhh. I'm not sure if this is right. So nicrosil let's you store the power of being a feruchemist (investiture) and duralumin connects someone to that. I'm not sure you need the nicrosil cuz you can already burn the metal as an alomancer, but you might need the connection to it through the duralumin. I'm not sure. I think if it's just unkeyed it might work though since you already have the allomantically ability and just need to access the attribute.
  14. @Frustration what do you mean unsealed?
  15. Vin mentioned she could feel something when she burned Sazed's metalmind but couldn't access it. It wasn't unkeyed though. What time happen if an alomancer burned an unkeyed metalmind? Could they access that attribute like tapping it, but not store it since they weren't a feruchemist themselves, perhaps enhanced like for a compounder, or would they just get the power of the metal? Like, could the alomancer just like deage while actively burning an atium mind, but only as long as they were burning, or would they just get the power of atium?
