    Right here, or in the Cosmere.
  1. Just a little clarification, friend: I think that no Cosmere book can be considered a spin-off because all the books (long, short or very short) are canonical, everything from Mistborn, Stormlight, White Sand, Elantris, Warbreaker and all Arcanum Unbounded stories. Of course, it is your decision if you want to read them all, but I really recommend that you do so; Not only because of how well connected the Cosmere is, but because Brandon never disappoints, all his Cosmere work (and almost all outside of it) is incredible and you are going to blow away with his other books that you have not read. The order Tglassy says is pretty good, although Edgedancer can read it between WoR and Oathbringer when you reread Stormlight, just as you can read The Eleventh Metal before Mistborn Era 1, and Secret History at the end of that Era. Outside of the Cosmere, I definitely recommend Skyward Series and Defending Elysium (they are in the same universe). I really liked The Rithmatist too, and I liked Reckoners too but it was my least favorite Brandon saga.
  2. I think, after the Mistborn trilogy, Skyward (book, not saga) is Brandon's darkest book, even though it can be classified as Science Fiction for YA (which in my opinion is nothing juvenile outside of the Skyward Flight age.)
  3. Yes, you have taken the words out of my mouth I think exactly the same as you. The GBs will be evil to Shallan and they are definitely not acting out of morals, but they are against Odium and Kell (as he tells Spook in SH's epilogue) wishes to protect Scadrial from the same thing happening to them as in Era 1—and The Set / Trell are a danger to Scadrial. Another important point is that the GBs are somewhat crazy about loyalty and camaraderie, which is exactly the same as their proto version (Kelsier's crew), and Kell himself is an overly loyal person, so I highly doubt that he will get into against his friend Saze, even if they disagree on many things.
  4. What if Trell is an Avatar of Autonomy who strongly supports Odium? It is just a hypothesis of my thinking, but to some extent it seems to make some sense.
  5. I highly doubt that Kelsier's problem is fearing for his sanity and memories, because he has been CS for only 300 years (and add that he was 38 years old when he died). The Heralds have lived for 7000 years, including thousands of torture in Braize, wars and much more, so the situations are not comparable. In fact, if we round figures and say that Kelsier has lived 350 years (counting his life and then as CS), he has literally only lived 5% of the time that the Heralds have lived, and not counting that Kell has never been through so much hell, misery and destruction like them. In fact, I think Kelsier does have Breaths, and also add to that that Kell dominates the Feruchemy with unsealed Metalminds, so he can lean on that too…
  6. I image Prof as Axl Rose from 2019-present, including the thick voice that Axl speaks with, so ignore me… But I do imagine Dalinar as various artwork that appears on Coppermind. Like this:
  7. Sounds like a good theory to me, albeit a little clarification: I think that, based on what Stormfather says in Oathbringer, Honor probably died shortly after the False Desolation, and that he (Honor) was totally insane and delirious talking about the Dawnshards and saying that the Radiants were going to destroy the world.
  8. Thanks for clarifying my doubts! Are they still the same as in SA? You know, Jezrien, Nale, Pailiah... Although I do know that Taln is a PoV recurring character. I find it strange that it does not appear. At that point, Brandon had already created Hoid and put him in Elantris (which he wrote in 1999.) Jek is still the assassin, as well as Szeth?
  9. Personally, I think the contest of Champions will be the end of the first or second part of the book. I don't think Sanderson would make a 1300+ page book to just narrate Gavilar's prologue, Szeth flashbacks, ten days only and an epilogue. I don't know how the contest could end, but I suppose it will leave a lot ahead for the rest of the book ... and hopefully a battle similar to the Battle of Narak or Thaylen City, with a victory for the protagonists but at a high cost. (Dalinar Fused?) I also think the ending could be like WoA, but related to Ba-Ado-Mishram obviously.
  10. Well, I have not yet fully learned English, I am far from level enough to read a manuscript as long as this book is. So I wanted to see if someone could help me by answering various questions about the book. (I don't care about spoilers for this one, because it's non-canon and besides, I'll still read it one day.) The questions are: In what places does the plot take place? (TWoK takes place in Shattered Plains and Kharbranth.) What important or recurring SA characters don't exist here on TWoK Prime? What is the role of the Heralds here? Are the Shards or Adonalsium named? (Very improbable, I know.) Hoid appears? And if so, what role does he have? What is the climax of the book? (In TWoK it is the Battle of the Tower.) Does Stormfather exist? (I know there is no spren in this book, but it is still a doubt.) Which characters are better here than in SA, and vice versa? I would be infinitely grateful if someone could clarify all those doubts for me!
  11. Thanks!! I was practicing with the Sponge brush and I was able to apply it well. It took me hours to get the practice, but now I already made a couple of covers with this style. Well, the AU in most formats that I have seen, it brings those symbols of the SH parts but in black. In red there is only the ebook published by Dragonsteel, because most Dragonsteel books have those details in color (red for the SH ebook, and Era I in leatherbound; blue for the Dawnshard and TWoK Prime ebooks, and TWoK in leatherbound, for example). On the Luthadel map, Kredik Shaw appears with the same symbol. The color map and the old map. I'm excited to see the TFE Prime cover with the Kredik Shaw logo!
  12. Thanks!! I have already corrected the error and updated the image
  13. Thanks! I'm going to give it a try and when I have some done in Spanish I'll upload them here at the Shard. And with the logos, I also put it with the color and apply the gradient and sponge? What is the format of your AU? If it's paperback, it's probably like the Cosmere image, which is only on hardcover. And I got the logo from my Secret History e-book, it's red and in GIF format. The bad thing about these logos in GIF is that they go crazy and the background turns black hahaha, but I think that converting them in GIMP to PNG format, it could work better and then color it. I find it strange that it is not in the Coppermind, because there is all the Steel Alphabet and almost all the logos that Isaac makes. The logo:
  14. Hey! The new covers are really beautiful. I've been using GIMP for days, and I would like to know if you could tell me how you put the texture to the logos and text, because they look the same as the TWoK Prime cover, and I would like to try to make these covers in Spanish, although probably none of the Sanderson Curiosities will be translated in the future. Also, even though I haven't read The Final Empire Prime, would putting the Kredik Shaw symbol on it would be in context? It is precisely the symbol of the second part of Secret History: "Well".
  15. Hey! I did this cover for The Hope of Elantris, using Sam Green's cover art for Elantris in the UK. What do you think? Any questions or comments are welcome. Thanks!
