  1. The discussion about the safe cytonic hyperdrives gave me a thought. @FeatherWriter mentioned a beacon in space as well as cytonic communication between bridge and ship and Shannon mentioned cytonic noise in the nowhere. This made me think of Brade's cytonic scream that drew the Delver. Theory: What Spenca assumes is the bridge is actually a beacon/space platform far out in uninhabited space where the Superiority uses brainwashed cytonic humans to project cytonic screams into the nowhere while the ship slips through. They need the cytonic communication to time the scream and the ftl jump. So, basically what Alyx said just with the nowhere added on. The slug just provides the ftl, not the scream, therefore isn't safe in and of itself. My mind is always going 1000 different directions after watching Shardcast. I love it! I liked the book once I was able to let go of my expectations and just read it for what it was. I missed Kimmalyn, though, bless her stars!
  2. "Yes, please" for the Autonomy Shardcast!
  3. Huh, I had always assumed Ati was Selish due to his Aonic name. This WOB throws that in the trash. Oh well.
  4. I totally get the simple explanation and agree....but it would be really cool if the way they break things involves manipulating reality, and since the spren seem to possibly do that...
  5. I just read the Szeth paintball competition chapter in OB and noticed the description of the Highspren. "What were those two spren floating nearby, shaped as small slits in the air? They separated the sky, like wounds in skin, exposing a black field full of stars. When they moved, the substance of reality bent around them." This makes me wonder if fifth ideal Skybreakers can use division to create a "break" in reality...a place that temporarily exists outside the three realms. When they "become the law," maybe that includes laws of nature. They could literally pull someone outside of reality to deal with them. Just a thought. Or they can literally affect reality around them in some way.
  6. Since we're talking about shardplate, I have a question too. When Kaladin had his dramatic moment and got his blade, it was soon after revealed that Syl could be whatever Kaladin needed her to be... We saw blade, spear, dagger, and shield, I think. Because of this, I have wondered if plate could be similar and what we saw in the Dalinar and Venli vision was actually his plate, just in a different form. Is the fourth ideal bit for all orders or just some? Could plate be flexible like spren blades, changing to meet whatever type of protection the radiant needs?
  7. @Karger I wonder if the speculation about dragons can from the description of the Iriali people having golden, almost metallic looking, hair and skin that even has a golden sheen under the right light. I'm not personally on board with the Dragon idea, but do like the idea that they could have come from Yolen. Their own religion states that Roshar is the fourth world they have lived on. With their capital being the City of Shadows, I do wonder if they have any special abilities we haven't seen. Their "golden" description reminds me a little of how Elantrian's are "silvery."
  8. This is exactly why I had never considered it before, but I thought I heard a WOB somewhere that said a squire of one order could actually bond a spren of a different order and switch. I'll have to look it up. Found it. Storm Cellar Do squires always bond the spren of their Knight's order? Or can they attract a different type of spren? Also, was it normal for someone to serve their whole life as a squire? Brandon Sanderson They can attract a different spren. It was indeed normal, depending on the order and the person. Miscellaneous 2018 (Oct. 14, 2018) I so want to see this!!!!
  9. @Wyndlerunner I'm totally down with with that. I don't know enough about Willshapers.
  10. After reading Rock's chapter again, I'm starting to think he might end up being a Lightweaver rather than a Windrunner. He is a culinary artist and he seems to have the same effect on other people that Shallan and Tien have/had. Bridge Four will become a mixed-order unit.
  11. Vacuum/clean the floor... Windrunner-sticks all of the furniture to the walls and ceiling first then puts a reverse lashing on the vacuum to pull in the dirt (only it starts to pull in other stuff too) Skybreaker-reads the vacuum instruction manual then follows it to the letter. Dustbringer-blows up the house so the floor won't need to be vacuumed. Edgedancer-simply heals the floor to its clean spiritual ideal. Truthwatcher-foresees all the kids running across the floor in muddy shoes, so just leaves it as is. Lightweaver-Lightweaves a clean floor. Who has time for vacuuming anyway? Elscaller-Transports all the dirt into Shadesmar or Soulcasts it to air. Willshaper-the floor needs to be vacuumed? Stoneward-loosens the molecular bonds of the floorboards just enough to let the dirt fall through and then re-solidifies them. Bondsmith-helps the Windrunner stick the furniture to the walls and ceiling then fine tunes his lashings to pull only the dirt into the vacuum. Can some Knights Radiant come and clean my house please?
  12. @TheGirlWhoLookedUp I think I might name it Stormstrider after the giant spren in the highstorm. @Numuhuku Nice! The Ryshadium are definitely gigantic, however I do think that their "spren bond"(for lack of a better term) is as much responsible for their ability to carry a person in shardplate as their size. I like the idea of the Friesian look scaled up 120% or so.
  13. I just finished listening to Rock's chapter in OB and noticed some things I hadn't picked up on before. This is mostly because a Shardcast I watched talked about human parshendi hybrids and that horneaters were one example of those. All of a sudden things in this chapter (and elsewhere) made sense. The Horneaters' Singer heritage is why they can see into the cognitive realm. Rock mentions being closer to the cognitive realm and being able to see spren in their entirety, not just the part that appears in the physical realm. He also mentions, when it is quiet and he focuses, that he can faintly hear the rhythms (he calls it something else, but it's obvious it's the rhythms). This has made me wonder about some of the other mixed race humans on Roshar and what unique traits they might have (besides hard fingernails and teeth). Any thoughts? The the ones I can think of are Horneaters (Singer blood), Herdazians (Singer blood), Rirans (Iriali blood), and Nataans (Amian blood). Are there any others?
  14. My pictures didn't post. Hee they are.
