  1. Who knows, probably not knowing whether to look at Brandon or the camera.
  2. Wouldn't you like to know...
  3. I mean...
  4. I would say that you can cite it as a suggestion. The approval process will likely fix spelling, formatting, and tags, but is highly unlikely to touch the actual content, which is what the wiki cares about.
  5. Moved to the RoW forum and unlocked at @Pagerunner's request - I imagine this will be seeing some updates in the near future
  6. It's news roundup time again, friends! Last we met, we talked about Fortnite Kelsier (who is out of the store now, actually), Cytonic's title reveal, and some Cytoverse novellas. Today's news haul is no less exciting: Tara Spruit's amazing Stormlight tarot deck is back in stock Brandon is launching a new podcast with his friend Dan Wells No announcements were made about future Dragonsteel products, especially not one about a Doomslug plushie Let's go over some details. Tara Spruit's Stormlight Archive® Tarot Card Deck went on sale and was instantly sold out back in March of 2020, and fans who didn't manage to grab a copy on time have been asking for a reprint. Well, some dreams do come true - the deck is back in stock for preorders. Get yours in before the end of June. The card art is absolutely gorgeous, the cards themselves are solid enough, and even the box is neat. Second in our list is a bit of news coming from Brandon's weekly update video from June 7. He and his friend (and partner in shenanigans) Dan Wells are launching a new podcast this Wednesday. The podcast will be much less structured than something like Writing Excuses, and will feature mostly the two of them talking about random, usually pop culture-y, stuff. The podcast is still unnamed, but we should expect to hear about it soon. And finally, from the same weekly update video, comes... well, not an announcement. Nothing was announced. Especially not about the Doomslug plushie precariously balanced on Brandon's shoulder for most of the video. But an announcement is coming in the future, and if one were to guess, something to do with the plushie seems like a safe bet. I personally believe that the cageyness around all of this is because the plushie design is not quite final, so Brandon doesn't want to promise until he is ready to announce something more concrete. And that's the end of our news recap! Join is in the comments or our Discord server and tell us what you think of all of this.
  7. The JordanCon website will offer you more comprehensive answers, but in a nutshell: July 16-18 Membership prices for this year are not known (to me), but in the past they've been around $50 We don't know anything about Brandon's schedule, but in previous cons he's stayed all three days
  8. Same, same. I heard some stuff that suggests that most of the 500 slots aren't claimed, but I am not going to let that make me lazy.
  9. At least the fans will get to enjoy a good dweeb show
  10. 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.
  11. theory

    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.
  12. I'm just gonna hide all of this RoW stuff. Which wasn't much, but still.
  13. Oh damn, this looks great!
  14. theory

    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.
  15. theory

    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.
  16. If it gets you to follow the rules...
  17. 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:
  18. @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.
  19. 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).
  20. 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.
  21. 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?
  22. The page was loading before, IG was just telling me there was no such account. Anyway, all good now
  23. Gotta keep an eye on the competition You ladies sound like you are having fun, and in my experience that's the most important thing. Though it helps that you also know your stuff and are well read beyond just Brandon, keep it up P.S. Looks like your IG account is not set up / public? I tried following that from anchor.fm, so maybe it's just that.
  24. I am less than 5 minutes into this episode, and y'all are already talking about pronunciation, this is great!
