  1. Seeing as the fifth book's viewpoint character is Szeth, maybe it could end up as (the) Knight Of Whispers?
  2. I know, I know. These has been endless theories on what this ideal will be, yet almost all of them are basically the same. however, I think people have been thinking along the wrong lines. Taking both Kaladin and the gemstone windrunner into account, I think there is a different train of thought about this ideal. What everyone thinks it is talking about understanding that one person cannot save everyone; and admittedly this idea did play into my thoughts as well. i think that it is not the idea of being unable to save people that inspires this ideal, but instead the fear of failing to help one group of people while protecting another. As such, my idea for the Fourth Ideal is as follows: ”I will do what is right, even if I am afraid of the outcome”
  3. I think Tinkledeath would be an appropriate name. Has a certain panache to it.
  4. 100%!!!! the outline is finished!
  5. Found this in the nature reserve behind my house. The word must have an English origin

    This ketek was inspired by a solar eclipse Radiant moonlight, eternal the , silence, the eternal moonlight, Radiant.
  8. I think it might be all the splinters of Honor left on Roshar, as what they are saying is similar to what the fragments of statue in Thaylenah were saying: might just be me, but both are voices only Dalinar can hear, and with the statue he was the only one who could have put it back together, so maybe the same is with the Splinters of Honor.
  9. the Parshendi are more Connected to Roshar than humans are, as they are the original inhabitants of Roshar. It also said in the Ela Steile that humans could not "hear Roshar". so it might be something from the Cognitive or Spiritual realms.
  10. The " oh-my-storms-that's-a-really-big-sword"
  11. you know what it is, but you can never remember it when you want to. I want to be able to visit every Shardworld
  12. I don't think I'm the only person that, when I hear songs, there are songs that remind me of characters from books and films When it comes to Stormlight, or the cosmere in general, I don't usually find this happening, but it might just be the music I listen to doesn't match the characters. Anyway, when I was listening to a certain song, it really stood out to me that the character it fits is Elhokar, one of my personal favourite characters, especially throughout Oathbringer. The song in question is Bad Liar, by Imagine Dragons. It's because of his struggles and how he started to overcome them. Anyway, I made this so I could see if anyone agreed with me, and to see if anyone had any other suggestions for characters Thanks for reading!
  13. There has been a lot of theories on this, so I'm sorry if this is either completely wrong or said already, but I just had some thoughts. We already know Kaladin has problems with accepting the deaths of those he tried protect, which we see multiple times throughout the books We can also theorize that this is a big problem for not just Kaladin, but for other Windrunners as well, judging from the gemstone entry from the unnamed Windrunner, who states that he is unsure that he can progress along the Ideals, because he can't get past something about the fourth ideal. He says that he is supposed to help people, which gives a clue that the next Ideal has something to do with not helping some people One key thing we see with Kaladin is his recklessness when it comes to protecting people. he constantly risks his own life so that others can survive, such as Bridge 4, the Singer's human prisoners in the highstorm, trying to fight a chasmfiend alone and with no weapon but a broken spear just to give Shallan a chance of making it back to the warcamps. we even see it when he volunteers to join the army, just to try and find and help Tien. With these three points: 1. Kaladin cannot put the deaths of those he failed to protect past him. 2. Windrunners in general seem to have a difficult moral decision to process with the 4th Ideal 3. Kaladin is reckless to the point of self-destruction when it comes to protecting others Based off of these points, this is what I think the fourth Ideal (at least when it comes to Kaladin) will be: "Before I can save others, I will first save myself" This would force Windrunners to get other the deaths of those they failed in the past, but would also mean coming to terms with the simple fact that they just can't save everyone. This, alongside Kaladin's depression, could explain why Kaladin and the unnamed Windrunner had so much trouble stating it. Please tell me if you agree or disagree, or why Thanks for reading!
  14. Ryshadium are nothing more than the horses originally brought from Ashyn after it was destroyed by the humans at the time. They, over time, managed to form bonds with spren, like Skyeels and Chasmfiends with mandras/luckspren. The spren they bond with are theorized to be musicspren, due to them being seen at their hooves while they were observed by Dalinar in west Alethkar- although he noted it was rare to see them that far west, perhaps saying they are not usually found in Alethkar
  15. We know that shards have a cognitive shadow: Fuzz for preservation, the Stormfather having absorbed Honour's, possibly the Nghtwatcher for Cultivation. It's not a stretch of the imagination to resume every Shard has or had a Cognitive Shadow, although ones like Dominion and Devotion's may have been Splintered alongside them. However, what we don't know is if Harmony, which is two shards in one, has a Cognitive Shadow. Maybe it has two, one for Ruin and one for Preservation, or perhaps it has one, more powerful/developed than other Shards? it could be interesting to see in Era 3, or maybe The Lost Metal, how that all works, and how it would interact with Scadrial and the people living on it or worldhoppers.
