  1. I don't think you're wrong in your assessment of the Vorin masses' reaction to the Heralds, but Amaram is hardly a stock Vorin. The Sons of Honor were shady even by Vorin standards
  2. Even that, I think, has more to do with the degree to which Adolin is personifying her than anything specifically special about Shadesmar. He's already personified his sword way more than the average swordsman, and seeing her in person form can only have enhanced his perception of her personhood
  3. I think Dalinar is likely to be having a bigger problem with Adolin's ganking of Sadeas than the Stormfather will. And anyway, the Cultivationspren are more Cultivation-oriented anyway. I don't that the Stormfather even comes into it. If anything, renewed hope for his lost children would overcome any quibbles he has about Adolin killing a genuinely awful perosn
  4. I'm not sure Brandon will give us much on Amaram. He still has a part to play in Jasnah flashbacks and those aren't until book 10. So a decade or two from now
  5. It also makes those suits of armor that Bridge Four were wearing that much more macabre and horrifying to the Parshendi
  6. Its more than just an alloy. It isn't Tanavastium doped with Cultivatium or vice versa. Each metal is molecularly uniform, but distinct from the other 9 metals
  7. I think the reason the Listeners are hyper-protective of the dead has to do with the fact that at some point they were probably hunted (by humans) for their gemhearts. A lot of the old Voidbringer myths involve the Voidbringers "stealing your heart". One that comes to mind is Skar quoting in in the chasms shortly before Kaladin does his spear kata. It appeara handful of other times. Since they were hunted as a resource, they'd naturally be protective of their dead
  8. As far as I can tell the Sons of Honor were not looking for the Knights Radiant to return. In fact, if they really thought about the Knights at all I suspect that they would have run counter to their purpose. The Sons of Honor were looking to strengthen the Vorin Church by forcing the return of the Heralds. The Knights are considered a black eye of the Church, not an asset.
  9. I assume you mean it isn't deep enough to grant Surges. But again, I think about what the Nahel bond is: the spren gets sentience in the PR and gets to experience change in a way not possible in Shadesmar. In return, the human (and now listener) gets access to the Surges and stormlight. If healing is to happen here, I'd imagine it actually requires a deeper bond between Adolin and Maya, not a shallower one
  10. I just don't see a bond with a spren (even if that spren was dead for a thousand or so years) failing to grant Surges
  11. Like Kaladin says of Dalinar giving up the Shardblade, at what point does the act become real?
  12. Szeth walked right up to Nergaoul
  13. oathbringer spoilers

    Welp
  14. oathbringer spoilers

    Shallan says she's 5'6" and calls it a good height. For reference, the average American woman is 5'4". We have no reason to believe that Rosharan inches are different than Earth inches. In fact, our understanding of size in Roshar depends on their measurements being converted to measurements we understand. I think the Alethi are just unusually tall as a people and not Rosharans generally.
  15. At Theylan Field Nergaoul was behaving differently than normal. I think enThrilling the entire Sadeas army meant it didn't have the energy or focus for anyone else to feel it. Not even Adolin felt the Thrill at Theylan Field and we know he'd felt it before
