  1. At least the fans will get to enjoy a good dweeb show
  2. I wasn't planning to go, but now that Brandon is going, I'll try to get a spot once (if) they open RSVPs to the public.

  4. My supposition, my words. You can find my (old, and now locked) topic on The Page™ for full details, but the super TL;DR is that I said "something's weird with Renarin's visions", Brandon offered to point me to a page that has a clue if I kept it secret, I agreed, he pointed to the chart we would later learn is the Voidbinding chart. So this is a follow-up from that, though how much Brandon remembers from our original exchange is unclear.
  5. I'm just gonna hide all of this RoW stuff. Which wasn't much, but still.
  6. Oh damn, this looks great!
  7. I've got a pre-RoW theory on the Magics of Roshar (linked in my signature) that plays with similar ideas, if you are looking for inspiration or different takes on the same concept.
  8. To be clear - and I think I got myself turned around during that one Shardcast - I do think Voidbinding is manipulating the Surges, but it's doing so through a Connection with Odium as opposed to a Connection with spren. I think the way I phrased it during the episode was "Surgebinding -> binding the Surges, therefore Voidbinding -> binding the Void, a.k.a. Odium", which I think is a valid interpretation, but the soul of my theory, as it has been for a long time, was that Surgebinding -> performing magic through a bond with spren, while Voidbinding -> performing magic through a bond with Odium. This is all mostly coming from the belief that what defines a magic system is not the effects, but the access (though the effects often end up being different as well). So when looking for differences between Surge- and Voidbinding, I look at where the magic comes from - spren in the former's case, Odium in the latter's. This being said, I recognize the appeal of the theory as I phrased it on the podcast - I must have liked it then, to have it temporarily overwrite my primary theory on the subject I am not 100% sold on either version (or anything else I've seen on the topic), but I feel like they are in the right neighborhood.
  9. If it gets you to follow the rules...
  10. Ah, you noticed all the mods looking at this thread, didn't you. We are concerned that the last few posts here have deviated from the good-natured discussion we like to cultivate on the forum (in short, discussion is good, argument is not, and "debates" are often just arguments in nice clothing), so we'd like to temporarily lock the thread while we decide how to address it. In the meantime, you can use this downtime to refresh yourselves these two very useful (and relevant here) threads:
  11. @KSub, please tag RoW (and Dawnshard) spoilers in the future. I know the spoiler policy is a little weird right now, but we generally don't allow any RoW/DS spoilers outside of their dedicated board. This thread is an exception, I think, but we still want things to be tagged accordingly.
  12. Ah, looks like another another mod sniped the unlocking. I can move everything from this one there, lock this one, or let you handle it all on your own (or any combination of these).
  13. I am okay with this, find the original thread, you should be able to report it - just mention in the report that you would like the thread unlocked, and that I say it's fine (as we don't usually allow necro-ing of old threads), and someone is going to get to it.
  14. I am not familiar with the situation, I imagine the old thread just got locked after a period of inactivity. Is there more to the story, or do you want it unlocked just to keep the conversation all in the same place?
