  1. Some of the death rattles show past events. I personally think quite a few of these pertain to Ashyn. This one is the beginning of the first desolation - notice the reference to burning, something that the Voidbringers/humans from Ashyn were described as having "skin that is burned". I think this is the past, just from the viewpoint of the past Radiants, or maybe from the viewpoint of the Sibling post binding of Ba-Ado-Mishram. I think this will be the endgame for Moash/Kaladin. Could also be a reference to Tien's death from Kaladin's perspective. I think you are right that Gavinor will be Odiums champion, or could be a really good candidate for the reasons you outlined. A lot of these deathrattles keep reminding me of that vision with Dalinar that comes, as the world shatters and breaks apart. Also, the knowledge that surgebinding destroyed Ashyn, that Honor was ranting and raving about before he died, that is attributed to his poor ability to connect with fortune. I think Honor was telling the Radiants of the future, where the world was destroyed by surgebinders - something that keeps coming accross in the deathrattles you outline: So is this the past, the fate of Ashyn that we won't truly know until the back five? Or is this the future of Roshar? Something that strikes me here is that none of this aligns with Odium's goals, either under Rayse or Taravangian. I think the last quote I did above is tied to Kaladin's fifth ideal coming at the lowest point for Roshar, but the rest could describe Ashyn still.
  2. theory

    This makes a lot of sense. It also makes sense why the Everstorm is red, because it has been corrupted and moved.
  3. I'm interpreting this as a red herring for a broken Vyre having lost Odium's light, Stormblessed dunking on him over and over, never stopping. Seriously though, this feels dark and is likely the moment where Kaladin swears the fifth Ideal.
  4. I think the unmade are just spren that have been affected by the surge of transformation powered by voidlight. Some unmade are more powerful spren (The ones that are intelligent), and some are more basic spren (Like the Thrill). I'm also partial to think the unmade are ancient spren maybe of the Dawnsinger Gods, pre Honor and Cultivation.
  5. So we have the "We Chose!" moment, but what if the Radiants knew there was a risk to imprisoning BAM, did it anyway, which Deadeye'd their spren. They didn't kill them by breaking oaths, they deadeye'd them through the imprisoning of BAM. Sacrificed their powers and Spren to defeat an enemy, which damaged the soul of Roshar. What are the unmade? I think we get some clues RoW, but what if BAM is like, the unmade soul of Roshar / planetspren? Planetspren has been asked about before and got RAFO'd so I'm curious if that ties in. What if the Unmade were the spren Gods of the pre-human Roshar, maybe the Singer's betrayal was offering their gods to Odium, he unmade them, in return for new forms (This was the betrayal of the spren maybe?).
  6. I'm still leaning Ishar, because in the Prologue, it is Ishar who justified the abandonment of the Oathpact. Also, rereading that just now it mentions Kalak putting his sword with the other 7. Is one missing or is that an old typo? EDIT: Figured it out, Jezrien puts his sword in (8) then Kalak puts his in (9).
  7. I know there is no logical way for it to work, but I want fifth ideal to grant a Ryshadium somehow.
  8. So, Shallan has a deadeyes spren, which I kind of thought nothing of until the livestream Thursday where Brandon said something to the effect of "Old knights radiant that broke their oaths did not make a deadeyes". This plus the "WE CHOSE" moment has implications for deadeyes. I think that in order to become a deadeyes, more than just breaking the oaths has to happen, the spren has to choose to die with the oath (Likely for some motive with the Knight Radiant involved). What the heck does that mean for Shallan? I think Testament probably chose to become a deadeyes to help Shallan conceal the Truth from even herself. I was also confused about Heleran, and his shardblade but I've realized I'm just an idiot for believing anything Mraize had to say rather than realizing Heleran was probably working for the Ghostbloods.
  9. Ok so I've chimed into several of these discussions, and honestly I'm all over the place on this topic, generally depending on which section of Moash I've gotten last. Previously been against but think its likely he will get redemption, but now I have been thinking about what purpose can he bring to future plot lines. I've thrown a few around redemption story archetypes such as Darth Vader's Redemption, Smeagul, Padan Fain, Saul/Paul. Remember the fifth ideal for the Skybreakers is like, "I am the Law" and transcending letters to be the embodyment of justice. What is that for "I will protect" if not something like "I will know who it is right to protect". Currently I'm leaning towards Moash needing to be saved, and Kaladin leaving him to die. Maybe Moash will have a partial redemption arc, Kaladin will have a chance to save him, but Moashes selfishness will bite him in the rockbuds. Kaladin won't have to protect him, and maybe he will die because of his toxicity as he is beyond saving. So like, redemption fake out, with Kal giving him the finger as he falls into a volcano? I admit this might be wrong because I thought it (redemption arc start) was going to happen in part one of RoW when Moash showed up.
  10. So...completely off topic, but did you watch the Clone Wars? I think for me, its the extra characterization he gets from that series that makes him more empathizeable - something that was incomplete with just the prequel movies. It's too the point that it makes Return of the Jedi better (Where previous to watching the clone wars, it was my least favorite of the OT). On topic, I think you are right that it feels shallow to just let someone sacrifice themselves to save someone, and that redeems them. It really depends on the arc we are given for Moash. I'm on my reread, just finished the part where Moash kills Leshwi and is spared for being passionate. I don't really feel like Moash / Kaladin's friendship was well developed in tWoK and WoR; certainly not nearly as well as Adolin / Kaladin. In fact, Moash in tWoK is kind of the last cremling that doesn't trust Kaladin. Take that to where he goes on OB and RoW - He gives his feelings over to Odium, seems completely uncaring - I honestly don't understand how Odium likes him while he feels so uncaring / passionless. For the future, if you want to go biblical analogs, his current moment really feels a lot like Saul/Paul - including having now been struck blind. He kind of acted like a prophet of Kaladin for parts in RoW, just trying to get him killed. I have previously posted about how I think Moash is going to be Smeagul somehow, and I keep coming back to him giving up his feelings - feeling nothing is the opposite of Passion. We also now have T-Odium, who may or may not care about Moash at all. Off the rails prediction: Moash, feeling betrayed by old Odium, now stuck with his pain as a servant to T-Odium, has an arc: escape Odium, finds Dai-Gonarthis (Not a real unmade?), who takes away his pain (As per deathrattle). Moash ends up bonding it and becoming some sort of anti-Radiant, and a more powerful bad guy (Rather than kind of pathetic).
  11. spoilers

    He's got to go to the peaks to deal with his betrayal of his birth order. I'm pretty sure he was born as a warrior, but because of the death of his older brother he became a cook. Finally, we know that it was said anyone who got shards and came back would become a king. So what's going on in the peaks? The Unmade Moelach has moved to the horneater peaks: Do we know of any other characters going to the peaks, or things going on there that Brandon would want to show besides Rock 'Return of the King'ing? Joshar (Silent Gatherer) is said to be headed there for more info. So we've got two named characters in the area. What I want to see, is more Cultivation. Like, flow blown on screen dragon transformation would be epic. I'd just settle for some more clues about her motivations and what shes trying to do, maybe mixed with T-Odium showing up somehow to meddle with the (former?) Diagram people. I'd love to see Rock become a radiant of some kind - maybe a Stoneward for the pun. From the Stoneward article: Plus this would give us a fantastic Stoneward POV character. EDIT Adding stuff: I really REALLY hope this isn't foreshadowing, but I'm tempted to think that Kaladin will die in the next book, and maybe meet rock in the Cog Realm before he fades. Some folks said this might be a language issue, that Rock might have to live on the other side of the Perpendicularity but we will see, and I hope it is just that and not either of them dying.
  12. I was super anti Moash redemption arc before RoW, and while I don't want him to get like, a Venli level backstory and redemption, I really feel like he could have a Darth Vader moment with Kaladin right as he dies, despite him having killed Teft. I know Brandon could do it. And it would really fit thematically with the series, that no one is so far gone they can't be forgiven. It could also go the other way and give us some vengeance against him too and I cheer for that, but I know if Moash somehow died saving Kaladin, I'd probably cry still.
  13. Hey all, just finished my first WoK reread post RoW just trying to pick up on new details in a Dawnshard / RoW world. One thing that stood out for me was all the mentions of Voidbringers with fire! This was such good red herring foreshadowing of Humans being the Voidbringers, because it first pushed us to this pre thought of the Singers / Parsh being the voidbringers, but with Rabonial's Grandmother, we know that its about the humans arrival on Roshar after escaping from Ashyn. Ok so some quote! This feels like it's specifically about surgebinders - they take away stormlight (To power their surges). We see this with Shallan and Kaladin both just instinctively consuming stormlight before they consciously control it. This one is something Shallan said... maybe something I'm reading a bit into. What if what caused the fall of Ashyn was trying to somehow reach the Spiritual realm with physical body? Anyway I think that last bit is a bit of a crackpot theory. I'll keep on highlighting stuff I see in Words of Radiance (And Oathbringer) as I go through the reread, just wanted to put this together see if anyone was interested in discussion.
  14. I think they could create and urge things into motion, but were powerless to directly interfere with anything especially if it was at odds with any of his metashards intents. Could not save a single life because Ruin was pushing against his need to preserve. Could not prune a civilization so that it could thrive (ALA Cultivation) because Preservation stopped him. This feels again, like it clues into the meta theme of the cosmere - reflecting on the question of what good is a God is that is omnipotent, omniscient, but will not interfere to save a child from coyotes. In Adonalsium's case, they aren't just the god of people, but the coyotes, and of nature as well. Has BS mentioned anything about ever showing this on screen? I hope we do see something, I agree it's not likely we will get POV from Ado.
  15. From the Rhythm of War Release Event, the reading he did from the sequel to First of Dusk (Untitled).
