  1. Yes, on two fronts. 1. Moash did nothing wrong /s 2. A huge part of this whole Kaladin/Moash/Amaram arc is about being consumed by revenge and Odium Hatred. Giving in to blind rage and hate has been universally deemed by the series thematically to be a bad thing.
  2. With regards to the Jasnah policy thing, we also haven't really seen much of Jasnah yet this book. We don't know the outcome of any of her political decisions yet, we haven't really looked into Alethi politics yet in RoW. We've got like 100 more chapters, I'm sure there'll be more dimensions to this situation
  3. Yeah some of the A plot guys have minor chapters.
  4. I disagree, Kaladin's pretty clearly part of the A plot involving Urithiru. Shallan and Adolin in Shadesmar are the B plot, and Dalinar and Jasnah in Emul will probably be the C plot. After the last chapter I think Kaladin/Navani/Venli/Renarin/(Rlain or Moash) is a pretty solid prediction for the major A plot POVs.
  5. No, they died once like 6,000 years ago and became Cognitive Shadows. Now when they die, the Oathpact intercepts the Cognitive Shadow before it disappears and keeps them "alive"
  6. It sounds like they imprison themselves
  7. Honestly, I was very scared that all the hype would sour the actual reading of RoW for me but honestly? This is already looking like it might be my favorite Stormlight novel. Something about the character writing and the action just seems so tight and high quality right out of the gate. Kudos to Brandon.
  8. "Using that Light, she peeked into Shadesmar: the Cognitive Realm. Timbre pulsed to Concern. They’d tested Venli’s other power—the ability to mold stone—only once, and it had drawn secretspren. A kind of specialized spren that flew through the city, watching for signs of Knights Radiant using their powers". I don't think her Shadesmar sight is tied to Envoyform - as far as we know it just works as a translator.
  9. Pretty self-explanatory My predictions: - Kaladin and Dalinar get Shardplate - Rlain bonds the Sibling - Venli gets to at least the second Ideal - Moash still sucks - Shallan starts actually trying to fix herself - BAM gets released - More Unmade appearances to go along with that - Singer lore bombs left, right, and center - Renarin learns about his Voidish powers more What're your predictions?
  10. I've always liked Knight of Wrath
  11. That you'd be in trouble if he ate Elantris? I figured that was obvious Also
  12. The Shards are Investiture. If you just want to kill the Vessels, Nightblood might already be able to do that, considering a new Starsight wob I doubt Nightblood could eat the whole Dor. It's huge, and Nightblood will eventually stop eating. That WoB only says he can feed on the Dor, not kill it.
  13. The amount of Investiture in the Cosmere is so inconceivably large that I doubt Nightblood could even make a dent on a Shard, even with this laid-out plan.
  14. You'd best abandon that notion. Gods in the Cosmere are very much not infallible
  15. He fought Odium because he was trying to kill him? What sort of a question is that? Both Honor and Cultivation's powers seal Odium, so it wasn't the last dying act of Honor, at the very least. I'm fairly sure that Odium would've been sealed around the time of the Oathpact, likely before. As has been stated in wobs, Odium doesn't like to Invest, so obviously he had to have been desperate enough to create the Fused in the first place.
  16. We also have a WoB that Odium would beat Harmony in a fight Odium was trapped much, much earlier than this.
  17. Hi! I'm writing a book I guess. Here's chapter one - feel free to critique! Warning - there is one (1) swear word in this chapter, and don't expect that number to decrease as the series progresses https://docs.google.com/document/d/1SOAioJk8oRvIjuS6duR1kc_04tvMKAWAq-Zl6SCr9Vc/edit?usp=sharing
  18. Yeah, I had a bit of an issue there. I'll probably iron it out in editing.
  19. Cognitive BS? Like I said, we don't actually know that much about Nalthis. It could just be such a large area that when it was created on Nalthis, it imprinted itself in the PR. The planet moved in its orbit, but it didn't.
  20. The best one I've seen is that it's the strange domain where Endowment gives Returned the chance to well, Return. We don't have a lot of information on the deeper workings of Nalthis to be entirely honest - maybe we can make better theories when Nightblood comes out. (If it comes out )
  21. There's an even better WoB where Brandon equates it to using Honorblades
  22. Wayne is like, icky as a person, but that wouldn't necessarily stop him from bonding a spren, so Edgedancer isn't the worst choice.
