About StormFather!

  1. So, Brandon said that all nine Unmade together would be Odium’s Godsren. I can’t find the quote right now.
  2. Can non-radiant animal spren be persuaded into a fabrial, or do they have to be caged in a gemstone? Because they might not gain intelligence upon being tied to the physical realm, and some of basically exist only in the physical realm anyway (windspren), more so than sentient beings. Although, those tend to be slightly intelligent and powerful, like riverspren, who are also tied to the physical realm
  3. I don’t know that you would use anti-tones. You might be able to use the actual tones to separate it (if you had it in liquid or gaseous form)
  4. What if Kaladin survives as cognitive shadow after he dies because they believe in him surviving so much that he becomes a Kaladin-spren, similar to how Tanavast’s cognitive shadow joined the Stormfather (even though that’s for a different reason)
  5. theory

    Maybe Odium’s magic system relies on corrupting other shards’ Investiture, similar to Hemalurgy stealing Investiture.
  6. Now I’m convinced. Do I have to officially join? ; )
  7. Bendalloy compounding would be useful in a everyday society since that stores nutrition and energy from food. I think I’m close to joining the tin cult
  8. A-pewter and F-bronze or A-steel and F-tin
  9. I think that the difference is that the blades are now regular spren, and can choose to leave the person that is abusing Surgebinding or not living the way they want. An honorblade can’t do that,
  10. So I found a WoB that explains how Allomancy is done unconsciously Moogle Compounding requires practice, according to The Hero of Age's annotations. And yet, it's apparently as easy as burning a metalmind. What was going on that meant the Inquisitors couldn't figure out how to do it (despite Ruin likely knowing how and undoubtedly wanting them to learn) for over a year? What skill did they need to practice doing, exactly? And what happened while they were practicing burning metalminds without successfully Compounding? Did they get an Allomantic effect? Brandon Sanderson What I think I was getting at in the annotations was a cosmere magic rule that, perhaps, I hadn't completely refined yet. This is the idea that INTENT is vitally important to the workings of most cosmere magics. You can learn to burn metals instinctively over time, but it does take time--time for your body to figure out what it's doing. If you have instruction and guidance, you can pick it up in an evening, like Vin did. Same goes for most of the magics. This ties into Awakening, with the idea that you have to form a command. During Warbreaker was where I really refined this aspect of the magic. Logically, since the beginning of the cosmere, I've wanted all three Realms to be important to the way the magics worked. The "Practice" therefore for compounding is mental practice--a barrier to overcome in understanding what is happening, and what it will do to you. If you already know all of these things by having it explained to you, that barrier is far less high. I think that was what I was talking about in the Annotations, without really having the idea specified yet--though I'd have to look back at the annotation and re-read it to say for certain.

  11. The reason that the Elantris magic is tied to the land is that after Odium killed Devotion and Domination, he pulled all of their investiture into the Cognitive realm. The reason this made a big change is that the Spiritual realm has no locations and is everywhere at the same time. The Cognitive realm has specific locations, so the investiture also has specific locations. (Did this make sense? Because the coppermind explains it better.)
  12. With Vasher, I’m pretty sure that Endowment investiture has no Connection with Nalthis, because it is a gift that is Endowed with no strings attached.
  13. Maybe normal fabrials are actually hacking the magic system because they use metal that isn’t spren. Ancient fabrials have something to do with rhythms and willing spren. Ancient fabrials are the one following a base ten system with ten types, while newer fabrials are combined with a base sixteen system that can be combined to make thousands of types. It’s like if they discovered compounding and Hemalurgy before Feruchemy and Alomancy.
  14. Where was it confirmed that Kelsier was Thaidakar?
  15. I think that Kriss calls Urithiru the mountains of Ur is because she learned about it from a book at Silverlight, not from the natives, who would have called it Urithiru. Also, Kriss is way old. Probably around 1150 years based on the scale of the timeline I found. Her book was about 100-200 years after the LR came into power. SA is only a few years before Wax and Wayne, so around 1150 years.
