  1. My headcanon on this has been that Tanavast had a different... oath, let's say, he saw as being more important. Maritalrital vows, for example.
  2. I am really happy with that one It felt right.
  3. I don't know if that sphere was voidlight though, I don't think it specifies in text.
  4. These tables are as canon as they can be as of Era 1. What's the issue here?
  5. At least in this context, "powers" clearly refers to the powers granted by individual Allomantic or Feruchemical metals. "Abilities" is much more interesting to me - are we looking at mundane ones, like the ability to juggle, or is it spicier than that, with things like the ability to perform Allomancy?
  6. It might be interesting. Brandon has been asked if he would be willing to open up the Cosmere to other authors, and he is not entirely against the idea - it would just need to be right people. Isaac Stewart, Brandon's art director, is one example Brandon has given as a person he would trust the Cosmere to, so we might see that one day. I am okay with the idea, as long as Brandon has enough creative oversight to step in and request changes if necessary. We'll see how his current collabs (Alcatraz 6, Apocalypse Guard) work out.
  7. Right!
  8. I am out of touch with these forums, all of you are new faces to me
  9. Kelsier and Marsh are good choices
  10. Wow, that's a... varied background. Did you run into Brandon from the authorial side of things?
  11. Hey, welcome! Tell the class a little about yourself?
  12. Hey, that seems a little... harsh. Forums are about discussion, as @SLNC correctly pointed out. This being said, not all of this thread seems super serious, so it's probably best for everyone's peace of mind to focus more on the posts we like and agree with and kind of shrug off the ones we think are too silly, too serious, or too wrong. The thing about the Internet that's both terrible and wonderful is that there are plenty of ways to ignore things you don't want in your life All this being said, you know who I want to see more of? Those old ardents who were doing measurements on spren. They were a cute elderly couple.
  13. I dug through the events and it looks like you attended the Atlanta signing? If so, it probably wasn't transcribed because @Jofwu was also there and we used his (likely because it was uploaded first). I see that not all of the audio snippets have been transcribed, however, so I guess there is still work to be done on this event - between the US holidays and Brandon's million events in the last couple of months, we've fallen behind a bit. I see you've also transcribed your own question, it's just been stuck in the approval queue for a while; I'll try to work my way through some of it tomorrow. But once we are done with this event, if your audio has something jofwu's doesn't, we'll go through it and make sure it's included.
  14. Can't really mess up an intro post Welcome, hope you enjoy your stay here.
  15. Welcome If you decide you want some more casual faster-paced conversation, we also have a Discord server I can recommend, feel free to hop in there as well.
  16. It's good cosplay, okay!?
  17. Brandon is going to bleed Utah people dry.
  18. I don't know, still seems fine to me. You can also get to it by going to magic.wizards.com and navigating to the Story page linked in the top bar.
  19. Story's now up, I've updated the post with a link to the download page.
  20. With Koloss Head-Munching Day still a week away, many of us were managing our hype so it reaches its peak on December 19 when Brandon writes his State of Sanderson annual blog. This year, however, we get an extra present - the reveal of the much-discussed "Secret Project" that popped up on Brandon's progress bars a while back. Well, wonder no longer, as io9 has published an exclusive - and Secret Project is now officially Magic: Children of the Nameless, a Magic: The Gathering novella Brandon wrote for Wizards of the Coast! Here's the synposis io9 revealed: But this is not the only treat io9 is treating us to. In their article there is a seven-question interview with Brandon about the novella, as well as - in true Brandon fashion - the entire first chapter of the novella! And this is still not all, folks! On top of everything else, Children of the Nameless will be released for free tomorrow, December 12! I don't even know how to emphasize all of these things, and my exclamation marks are starting to get out of control so I'll stop here! But what do you think about this? Are you one of the many people who play Magic and for whom this is the lovechild of two of your favorite things in the world? Or are you just a Brandon guy - in which case, do you think this will stand up to Brandon's other non-Cosmere stories? Let us know in the comments! EDIT: The story is now up, you can download it here!
  21. Also, remember that Hoid would not describe himself as a good person
  22. That's me all the time, that minute up there may have just been... more obvious to others.
  23. Tor has announced the full Skyward tour, use this topic to sign up for and discuss the Naperville stop: I myself will be at this stop, so I am looking forward to meeting many of you (but not all! It's a lot of you here, I can't afford to meet all of you, it'll eat into my Brandon time...) there.
