  1. This could probably be reworded to match the WoB better. I don't think it's contradictory, but it makes a false assumption (i.e. that harmonium can be distilled).
  2. It's just an artifact of him storing health. While he stores he is much susceptible to "the sniffles" - and simply stopping his storage doesn't get rid of the cold he's caught while storing.
  3. I am still making my way through The Emperor's Soul GA adaptation, but I expect I'll be giving this a shot. Unless their release schedule for the next two volumes is more aggressive, and I can just wait before getting all 3.
  4. In the future, the Cosmere Q&A is a better place for questions like this.

      Yeah, I saw that. I like the choices.

      Yep, really right now.

  5. Seems reasonable. +1
  6. Looks pretty good, though I'd love a closer shot
  7. Hi, welcome to the our little corner of the Internet Now that you've got a few posts under your belt (I had typed "belly" here, good thing I review my post-midnight replies...) you should be able to post your preferred link to Gemheart (the Sanderson Fan Works forum is really the place for that, plus it gets more visibility than intro threads); if not, you should be able to soon. But I gave it a listen, it's pretty nice, upbeat, catchy, subtle with its references - beautiful refrain too. If chat rooms are more your thing, feel free to hop in our Discord server and say hi Either way, hope you have a good time here
  8. I've seen your Dalinars here and there (Reddit definitely, maybe IG too). I've been meaning to ask you if I can put them up on the Coppermind wiki so be on the lookout for a PM... somewhere Very much looking forward to seeing more from you
  9. I would be shocked if Nightblood wasn't created on Nalthis.
  10. I'll most likely be there (i.e. unless some emergency stops me), arriving on Thursday too.
  11. I have a friend who is going, I'll try to make sure he records as much as possible.
  12. Aw, man, this gets cooler and cooler! I am genuinely flattered to have been a (small) influence on the development of this, it's not only a massive project, it's a good massive project (and also a massively good project). I had an idea as I was rereading your write-up and watching the new animations. You are already aware of the visual clutter when using Steelsight*, and one way I thought you could solve (or at least lessen the impact of) it is by scaling the thickness of the blue line logarithmically instead of (what I assume is) linearly. Another is by assigning mass or mass categories to each metal object. A third is by configuring a filter so the Primer Sphere either completely ignores lines under a certain size, or makes them fainter and/or desaturated. English labels in that UI would also be nice * Why do they call it Steelsight anyway? Ironsight is exactly the same thing, and I see no reason for it to not be called Metalsight...
  13. Ah, that's a rabbit hole you've stumbled into. It's a really big question you are asking, but I'll give you what I consider the highlights: This connected universe is known as the Cosmere. Generally speaking, if a story does mention Earth it is not Cosmere, so the reverse holds true as well. The Coppermind page on Brandon's bibliography is a great resource for checking what's Cosmere and what's not. Hoid, at this stage, is mostly there to suggest to the reader that there is more going on that meets the eye. He is very old and has his own agenda in each book he appears in, but details about him will be scarce until Brandon writes his story, Dragonsteel. Beyond this, I am hesitant to just explain things to you because I still remember how exciting it was for me to discover a lot of this stuff on my own. There's a lot we know about what's going on behind the scenes (from official annotations and deleted scenes, as well slightly less official Words of Brandon), but I feel it's important to mention that you don't need to know a lot of that. A lot of us find it interesting, but your mileage may vary.
  14. Hopefully soon indeed
