  1. Oooh good point Karger I think you're right!
  2. I thought it might be fun and useful to theory-crafting and discussions to try to determine which of the epigraphs were written by Navani and which were Written by Raboniel. So here goes. Hopefully the rest of you can help me figure them out. Epigraph 1 Epigraph 2 Epigraph 3 Epigraph 4 Epigraph 5 Epigraph 6 Epigraph 7 Epigraph 8 Epigraph 9 Epigraph 10 Epigraph 11 Epigraph 12 Epigraph 13 Epigraph 14 Epigraph 15 Epigraph 16 Epigraph 17 Epigraph 18 Epigraph 19 Epigraph 20 Epigraph 21 Epigraph 22 Epigraph 23
  3. I don't know if he's evil, and I strongly doubt that the boon/curse is still in effect BUT I suspect that Cultivation still has some way to influence him or at least to get a better "view" of him because of it. I would also put money on Cultivation's plan not being done and still having several layers and twists and turns to go. After all if intent influences how strong a shard's futuresight is then Cultivation's intent would probably make her futuresight one of the best.
  4. Air-sick theory time: he is Raboniel's once-mate.
  5. Well he did lure out Ash in Oathbringer but all in all I've been getting steadily less impressed with him as the series has progressed. I wonder about all his trophies, are they genuinely as impressive as they seem or is the truth of how he acquired them rather lackluster?
  6. Lyn the windrunner who dated Kaladin, is Lyn from Tor books.
  7. I think progression very much would heal someone to their correct gender identity, it seems to involve showing people their ideal self.
  8. I don't think that would matter to Ishar though. Men reading and writing is also un-Vorin but he (and Kalak) does it. Plus the whole insanity thing.
  9. Does anyone else think that the way Ishar fought was very similar to the way that people burning Atium do? Given that I doubt he has Atium, could he be using fortune somehow? And if so is this something that any bondsmith could learn to do or is it something else?
  10. I wonder if every order has some special ability with regard to either their plate or their blade. Any ideas on what they would be for each?
  11. Hmm we know Ryshadium can bond both spren and riders and we've seen that the Reshi greatshells are intelligent and can communicate with the islanders. It's even implied that they have some sort of council or at least make decisions as a group such as when they Given that the greatshells and the chasmfiends seem to be related I would not be at all surprised if they could do the same.
  12. Oooh I would love if it were something like this. And it does fit with my suspicions that the fifth oath will deal with leadership in some way.
  13. I really hope it isn't this. I was honestly hoping that the fourth oath would be something along the lines of I will not deny the agency of others in an attempt to protect them, or I will accept that I cannot protect people from their own choices. I don't know that I think that is what the fifth oath will be but I do hope it at least doesn't contradict it. And maybe one of the other windrunners will have their fourth oath be more along the lines of respecting the freedom of others to make their own choices.
  14. Only other ones I can think of is one of the Dakhor monks from Sel because they also scar themselves pretty heavily with all their mods and the name sounds similar, or a really screwy shad from Threnody but I think that last one is extremely unlikely.
  15. Now see I get some of what you are saying, but I don't think it's because he wants to stay on schedule or keep to the 10 books total thing. I think it has much more to do with the constraints of keeping each book to a reasonable physical size. Because realistically speaking they can only be so big and they're already pushing that limit, like I think I read somewhere that their manufacturer was worried about being able to print/bind a book with so many pages correctly. This leaves him with the choice of cutting things, making a book that is too big for a lot of people (physically not mentally) or splitting up books by character and writing about what one group is doing in one book and what another group is doing in a separate book with the events of both taking place at the same chronological time ala GRRM; and personally I hate when authors do that. I mean maybe some people prefer that but to me it sucks, especially if the series isn't yet completed it makes it harder to follow and I almost inevitably enjoy whichever one comes out second less, no matter how good it is. I mean I get it I would love more of those scenes too (and if he ever releases them as extras or something I'll be over them *hint hint*) but not at the cost of keeping the books in chronological order sans flashbacks. I will however give you points 4&5. It would have been awesome to see Jasnah vs skybreakers and we really should have gotten to see more of what the dustbringers were up to. But I wouldn't be so quick to write off the importance of Emul just yet .
