  1. I really enjoy the WoB episodes! I am looking forward to new topics though! Long before I did much scouring of the internet I new that SA was going to be 10 books - I adamantly refused to read them for nearly 5 years because of that. However, I had previously read other series that I later found out were going to be longer than I hoped, so I may have gotten in the habit of checking how long a series was supposed to be, and the status of that series. Also, back in 2012/2013 when I first heard about SA, Brandon was not very far along, another reason I would not read it. Clearly, I have seen the Light and am starting a second reread of Way of Kings! Basically, I agree with whomever was lamenting people not knowing it's going to be a 10 book series. While y'all were talking about the the series as a whole and the two 5 book arcs, a knot began to form in my stomach as I started actually considering that some of the characters I love will not make it to the second arc. :'( I think knowing it's inevitable that some die is worse than not knowing, so maybe I would've been better off not ever scouring the internet for information, that way I would read hoping everyone lived, verses anxiously reading waiting to see which ones will die. Oh, my heart!
  2. When, while reading this thread and coming across the above post you read “when you see a truck labeled knights raidiant transport,” then finish the sentence and look back only to then realize that it was KR and your brain read Knights Radiant on it’s own. (To be fair, I was on this forum, so I’m sure that has something to do with where my brain was at).
  3. @SpikedAugur @Govir I was having these same thoughts, and found this word of Brandon: https://wob.coppermind.net/events/210/#e4618 In addition, my thought is then, stab the Mistborn, have all 4 physical powers in the spike, split that spike into 4 pieces and then stab in the correct bind points so that you get all 4 physics powers (or respectively cognitive, spiritual or temporal). This would work right? I guess the question is, is one fully powered spike granting one power better/stronger than 4 partially powered spikes granting 4 different powers?
  4. When you feel personally offended during the following experience: Your brother, who has read, and hence loved, Mistborn asks for the title of “the next Brandon trilogy,” by which he means Stormlight. So I tell him, and then launch into an explanation of the series (because I want him to have realistic expectations-it being larger and longer than he has read and that 3 of 10 are writte ). I talk about the two five-book story arcs, and then mention that each book is essentially a trilogy and a novella and my sister who was sitting nearby started laughing. And now she is telling each member of my family this while laughing. She thinks I’m making it up. So I told her this is like his big epic fantasy, something he didn’t know if he’d ever publish because he didn’t know if anyone would want to read it (I thought I’d read he said something like that). And she said, “and no one is reading it.” And I said “everyone is reading it.” And that made her laugh more. And I’m feeling personally offended, but also defensive about Brandon and his awesomeness. Currently, the only redeeming quality of my sister is that she’s on page 150 of Mistborn.
  5. Ok, to recap, we know this character is a singer and is spoken to by Venli. Singers that have been guessed: Eshonai Thude - dissented when Eshonai wanted all the singers to take stormform, and escaped with some of the other singers Demid - Venli's once-mate Rlain Sah - Kaladin and Moash both meet him Venli Eshonai's mother Zuln - Council of five: dullform Khen - leader of the group of singers that Kaladin meets Vai - Sah's daugther Klade - Council of five: member that was part of the Council that ordered Gavilar's death Fused that have been guessed, because I'm unsure if fused are singers, in the same way that Heralds were once human but aren't really any more... Leshwi - fused that Moash "kills" Abaray - according to the coppermind he gave Amaram the stone with Yelig-Nar I'm certainly not making any traction here, but am going to make two guesses because we're struggling here: Hariel - the fused that inhabits Demid's body or Davim - Council of five: workform Is there a part in OB where Venli tries talking to an insane fused? And since the fused is crazy they don't talk back to her, hence the clue "was talked to by Venli?" I could be making up this memory...
  6. He’s from Roshar, he disagrees with Eshonai about stormform and rather than gathering up those who didn’t want to take stormfrom he helps them escape. I also already guessed him Can we guess more than once? I still have plenty ideas... Davim?
  7. When you convinced a guy you were dating to start reading Mistborn, break up with him before he finishes, and now you’re kept up at night 3 years later wondering if he ever finished or if you ruined him from becoming a Sanderfan.
  8. Are all listeners singers? Or only if they’ve been healed by the everstorm? Or are they considered separate? If all listeners are singers then there are still many that fit the clues, ahhh..... who to pick.... ok, I’ll go with Rlain.
