  1. Some people cant wait upwards of 15-20 or so years though Brandon still has to write Stormlight 5-10, the lost metal, nightblood, elantris sequels, threnody novel, etc... it takes 3 years for one SA book and ill assume 1 year for all the rest. That leaves 21-22 years until he, at the very least, Starts writing Dragonsteel. Assuming everything goes perfectly(which it wont) and he doesnt throw in an extra novel or two which means the young man that i am(19) will be storming 40-something years old by the time i read it
  2. Well they are definitely cool. Worth it? Probably not. usually the only differences are the leather itself, some illustrations and maybe a deleted scene. It really just depends on if your a hardcore collector or not. i bought all of them(except Well of Ascension) because “they just looked so cool” and i love the Cosmere. well, 1 year later and im down $500 dollars, ive only opened two of the books and they just sit in my nightstand(i dont have a nice bookshelf for em) it really just depends on what you want. If your into collecting and actually have someplace show it off/use it, then yeah its worth it. Or even if you dont show it off and its just of great value to you. But if you wont really have em on display or someplace they can be held/looked at/appreciated,then no, its not worth it the allure can be tempting though. I barely talked myself out of spending $200 on WoK even though i know im gonna do absolutely nothing with it
  3. there should be a link near the top of the newsletter. at the bottom of the index, its pretty easy to miss.
  4. i had to use a different email to get it to work only the first chapter or so is available in the Arcanum Unbounded. the whole novel is in the newsletter(38 chapters. 40 counting prologue and epilogue)
  5. i think he will be. after the 10-15 in year gap between Book 5&6, he will be roughly 16-21 years old. the perfect age for a new young hero in the back half of the series
  6. i admit though, its pretty hard(for me at least) to see her as anyone other than Shallan Kabsal Huh. It seems a proto-Shallan did already exist as of this version [Way of Kings Prime]. I thought with the prologue's discussions of House Davar that Shallan would have been a more recent development. Peter Ahlstrom Brandon sees Shinri and Shallan as entirely different people who have the same last name and are both Jasnah's ward. However, most of the other characters are the same people as they are in the published novel. General Reddit 2017 (Sept. 19, 2017)
  7. maybe because thats not Shallan XD Brandon didnt invent Shallan until the Canon Way of Kings
  8. My aspiration in life, would be.... to be happy.
  9. Vax

    Ati and Leras are from Yolen (but I agree that it's a Shardworld!): i think he meant that they came from Vax directly before creating Scadrial theres WoB that most Shards have meddled around on most other Shardworlds and Ati and Leras would both recognize it. "The being called Patji still exists, and is a Shard of Adonalsium. Shards in the past have been interested in First of the Sun, and have meddled in small ways there. (Like they have on a lot of Shardworlds.)" Sel is a corner case. every other Shardworld we know of doesnt have most of the Shards power locked in the CR. which is the whole reason for the different country magics. thats still not humans performing magic. its interacting with it. its magic Birds. id say thats pretty environmental and not anything like Surgebinding or Allomancy "I intend the minor Shardworlds to involve interactions with the magic as setting--coming back to spren, you could have a minor Shardworld with people who use, befriend, even bond spren. (Or the local equivalent--Seon, Aviar, etc.) But you'd never see power on the level of the city of Elantris, the actions of a Bondsmith, or even the broad power suite of a Mistborn." General Reddit 2018 (March 18, 2018) Questioner What differentiates a minor Shardworld like First of the Sun? Brandon Sanderson The amount of Investiture, and whether there is actually a Shard in presence. Questioner I'm assuming there is not one there? Brandon Sanderson There is not one there. Questioner So it's like a Splintered one from something else? Brandon Sanderson No what you'll find is that the worlds were all created with a level of-- a little bit of sort of ambient magic. What you'll find in worlds like that is things like, Shadows for Silence and things like this, the magic, it's not necessarily "people with magic" it's you can interact with nature... Questioner So there is inherent Investiture... Brandon Sanderson There is inherent investiture in every world created but you are going to see-- You aren't going to find Mistborn on a world like that but what you might find is a way there are magic aspects to the setting. Spren could exist on a world like that but they would be like the minor spren, you wouldn't find Syl, but you would find something like lifespren. Salt Lake City Comic-Con 2014 (Sept. 4, 2014)
  10. Kaimipono Allomancy is fueled by Preservation's body? How exactly does that work? And how does that interact with Atium—it's fueled by both gods' bodies? Brandon Sanderson The powers of Ruin and Preservation are Shards of Adonalsium, pieces of the power of creation itself. Allomancy, Hemalurgy, Feruchemy are manifestations of this power in mortal form, the ability to touch the powers of creation and use them. These metallic powers are how people's physical forms interpret the use of the Shard, though it's not the only possible way they could be interpreted or used. It's what the genetics and Realmatic interactions of Scadrial allow for, and has to do with the Spiritual, the Cognitive, and the Physical Realms. Condensed 'essence' of these godly powers can act as super-fuel for Allomancy, Feruchemy, or really any of the powers. The form of that super fuel is important. In liquid form it's most potent, in gas form it's able to fuel Allomancy as if working as a metal. In physical form it is rigid and does one specific thing. In the case of atium, it allows sight into the future. In the case of concentrated Preservation, it gives one a permanent connection to the mists and the powers of creation. (I.e., it makes them an Allomancer.) So when a person is burning metals, they aren't using Preservation's body as a fuel so to speak—though they are tapping into the powers of creation just slightly. When Vin burns the mists, however, she'd doing just that—using the essence of Preservation, the Shard of Adonalsium itself—to fuel Allomancy. Doing this, however, rips 'troughs' through her body. It's like forcing far too much pressure through a very small, fragile hose. That much power eventually vaporizes the corporeal host, which is acting as the block and forcing the power into a single type of conduit (Allomancy) and frees it to be more expansive. Hero of Ages Q&A - Time Waster's Guide (Oct. 15, 2008) This WoB indicates that the Metallic Arts are what they are because its what the Realmatic interactions of Scadrial allowed for. It also suggests that different planets have different Realmatic interactions that should change how the Spiritual Realm interacts with the other realms. this should also be part of the reason why the CR looks different on other planets Its like different planets Realmatics interactions are running on different hardware that predetermines what interactions can take place. Which would affect the CR

  12. To add on to what @R J said, from the prose to the Graphic novel there were a few minor changes... -the scene of Khrissallas arrival to dayside was cut in the GN -a main character gets gender-swapped(male to female) -A (minor?) character lives instead of dying -name of one of the main cultures was slightly revised("kershtian" to "kerztian" -in the Prose, we get a lot of other Charaters PoV's and internal monologue(like Khriss) -lots and lots of typos in the Prose
  13. WinespringBrother So, would Unity be a natural enemy of Autonomy? Brandon Sanderson Um... Possibly. You say "natural," and so I-- WinespringBrother Well, would one eliminate the other one? But more towards Autonomy trying to break up-- Brandon Sanderson To break up Unity. It's so hard to say, because Autonomy is a bit of a strange duck. Like, what counts as being Autonomous? Is absorbing everything and becoming one again Autonomous or not? That's kind of your question that you get into. And the way Autonomy looks at it right now, is no. Autonomy wants to remain Autonomy. Autonomy does not want to be corrupted by anything else. And Autonomy would think the Shards are better on their own. But is this a natural effect, or part of the-- Does that make sense?

  14. Hoid's doin just fine. he doesnt have any real friends that we know of BUT we are eventually going to get to meet some of his love interests RiyriaMistborn Has Hoid ever had a love interest? Brandon Sanderson Yes! Several! General Signed Books 2018 (March 14, 2018) Questioner My question is a follow up to what you answered in my Well of Ascension. I asked if Hoid had any love interests, and you said, "Several". My follow up question is, have we seen any of those *inaudible*. Brandon Sanderson They will show up in various books but you have not seen them yet. They're *inaudible*. Footnote: That entry can be found here. FanX 2018 (Sept. 8, 2018)
  15. definite answer. yes he is still a feruchemist Yados Does Sazed's biological body still exist somewhere? If so, does that body still possess Feruchemical abilities? Brandon Sanderson Yes, it does exist, though kind of...blended-in, so to speak, as happened with the others when they Ascended. Yes, it still has his abilities, though they are kind of moot now. 17th Shard Forum Q&A (Sept. 26, 2012)
