  1. For 2: So, with my understanding of Transformation and this little WOB that soulcast blood would match the recipient's DNA (https://wob.coppermind.net/events/171/#e8587), would that not infer spiritual realm shenanigans where the soul cast object would no longer spiritually be that object? If that's the case, it would probably depend on your definition of vegan. Soulcast meat would no longer be an animal product, but it would be derived from an animal product. Maybe a real world comparison would be how and animal could decompose and eventually become part of a plant. In the strictest sense (nonsensically) that would be an animal product, but no one really would consider it so. Does the soulcast grain-from-meat remember ever being meat afterwards?
  2. As someone who was listening to SP4 in the background at work (therefore, not listening particularly intently), I didn't realize it was Sigzil...and I was definitely content with the story regardless. I would vote that you don't technically need to know anything Stormlight to enjoy the sample chapters, but obviously it's going to be profoundly important as the book expands on what he's doing and why. Also, I don't think anyone needs an excuse to read Stormlight. Just do it, and thank Brandy Sandy later.
  3. Oh, yeah. "I am Unity" was his perpendicularity moment. Definitely fell into that mistake. In that case, I revise to the following just because: 2. I will disseminate, I believe in free knowledge for all.
  4. In a more "I am Unity" kind of way => "I am dissemination" Yep, calling it, lol.
  5. I could be forgetting the context to that quote, but I think I lean towards pre-binding Rosharan magic being more OP, like maybe surge binders had access to more surges at a time (or all). Then after the binding, surges were bound to each other in the way each Knights Radiant order only has 2, and each surge is bound to two others.
  6. Wow, maybe I do enjoy Era 2 far more than I recall...
  7. I'm not sure about the elevator part. You're on the right track with cognition though. Unless I'm forgetting something, spren can manifest in the physical basically whenever [they have something drawing them there (ie. emotion, a budding radiant, etc.)], but unless they have a bond of some sort, they risk their minds fading away. I think that was what happened on and off with Syl through WoK, right?
  8. Unfortunately I am not nearly so artistic, just another admirer of sticks. I didn't realize the signature got cut off, but source is below. The Stick of Resolve, Artwork by Ari Ibarra https://ariirf.com/
  9. I didn't realize it was so frowned upon. I really just wanted to separate the various trains of thought for easier threads, but I'll do differently in the future.
  10. No, I get that they don't provide extra investiture - Nalthis is kinda weird. I suppose I was referring to something like a 5th ideal radiant whos spirit web was heavily interconnected with their spren. If that spren was tossed in a gem, it could potentially be a (spiritually) painful process for both, and I wish I knew the ramifications for it. I'll spoiler my next part just in case (even though this is RoW spoiler territory. I'm sure we'll have more to go off of in Book 5.
  11. And another theory: Say you get a Honorspren in a fabrial, could you use it to elicit more honor as an area of effect sort of buff? Think flamespren putting off heat, but in a DND buff type of way. Ex) you keep some Honor-rials (patent pending) around your war camp to help keep your soldiers in check.
  12. Potential crack theory with little real backing: If you captured a spren that was bonded with a Radiant, would you would turn the radiant into the Rosharan form of a drab (Nalthis)?
  13. Apologies if it has been discussed or I've forgotten something. What would happen to a sapient spren if it was captured in a gem? We've obviously seen lower spren be captured and we've seen Unmade like the Thrill and Ba-Ado-Mishram (kinda seen) be captured, but what about the in-between? Could you manifest some effect from a fabrial made with a Sapient spren? What would happen if the gem was broken and the spren escaped (would the spren experience a loss of function, cognition, etc.). (I think this has been somewhat discussed in some Shardcasts about Ba-Ado-Mishram.) Does this affect bonds (thinking Nahel) in strange ways?
  14. Oh gosh, I wonder if that could be. I really like that theory. Also, 1000x yes to the surfboard. He's even got the beautiful flowing locks to match. XD
  15. @Jofwu's aside about if Kaladin bonded 2 spren just has me imagining all of these variants of him zooming around with dual shardspears, a shardspear and his traditional knife he used in the army now shardknife, a shard spear and shardshield at the same time, etc. And now I want it to be so.
