  1. I am currently drawing Kaladin.

    Here are the things I am unashamedly 110% procrastinating drawing:

    • His hair
    • His scars.
    • Because they're going to be on a wrinkled forehead...
    • It's gonna be so hard...
  2. I'm rereading(well actually listening) to Wingfeather and just happened across this sentence in Warden and the Wolf King... 

    I just sat there with my hand over my mouth after moaning loudly.

    Don't click if you haven't read all of Wingfeather.

    Janner never made it back to Chimney Hill.

      Same! Finally got it from the library. Love the characters already.

  6. So here's the thing.

    I want to read The Lost Metal because of the Cosmerey-ness. I read AoL and SoS(Shadows of Self, not Shadows for Silence)

    But I know BoM has some stuff I'm not really comfortable reading in it. I want to read the book! I just... don't feel comfortable doing it. Same with Warbreaker.

      I think in BoM and TLM, there's more crass humor, especially from Wayne. That's what I'm hearing at least. I'm still unsure how questionable Warbreaker is, but from what I've gathered, it's not quite as questionable as I'd first assumed. IIRC, the worst it has would be:

      Spoiler

      A "fade to black" scene, several mentions of nudity, one very VERY questionable scene, and a little bit of discussion outside of those scenes. There's also violence, but that's kind of a given with Brandon Sanderson. If anyone remembers anything else, please add to this.

      Uhmm, I believe in Warbreaker, it's a handful of specific scenes. However, I don't remember how many scenes there are and how far apart, not to mention a kind of minor plot thread being related to those scenes. None of the...questionable parts are absolutely necessary to enjoy the story, but I could be wrong. I don't remember anything I personally found horrendously explicit, but it was way more explicit than any of Brandon's other books. 

      Anyone who has read Warbreaker more recently than a year ago, please correct me if I'm wrong.

      Yeah, Warbreaker had some...iiinteresting scenes. I'm not sure about BoM. I don't remember anything super weird, but then again, I don't remember much of anything.

  13. Time for Episode 7 of "Shallan Stormblessed Misuses Status Updates" aka "She Just Doesn't Think The Topic She's Posting About Is Worth A New Thread"!

    So, I swear I saw an official design for Kaladin somewhere, like this one for Dalinar,

    Spoiler

    Art brief "one-sheet" for Dalinar Kholin, including front and back images of his uniform, portrait sketches of his face, and other reference images for his pose

     but for the life of me I can't find it! Does anyone know where it went?

      It's possible I missed some. The kickstarter page is a labyrinth of posts and they might not all be on the kickstarter.

      I believe this is one of the official concept/reference art boards used for the stormlight figures. I can't find them easily, but they should be somewhere on the kickstarter page, I found some under the Updates tab. I don't think all of them have been shared. This is the most I could find of Kaladin. Sketches, color portrait, and initial render for Kaladin. Concepts by Audrey Hotte.

  15. You know when you're reading a book or watching a movie, and you've seen/read it before, and something bad is about to happen, and you're hoping that somehow it'll go different this time... and you're just saying, "Just DON'T DO IT!" because you hope that maybe the characters will be smarter this time, forgetting it'll always be the same?

     

    I hate that.

    1. Odiumiumium

      Wait do you also randomly flip to a page and start reading from there?  I did that a ton, going to a random page in a book I'm familiar with, and then finishing the book in a few hours from there. I practically memorized the entire Inheritance Cycle that way.

      Definitely. Once I find the time and motivation and a copy of the book, I don't think Way of Kings is going to last a week.

      Now I feel like I'm missing out on all the easter eggs. I've read the entire cosmere (except like White Sand and maybe a couple short stories here and there) but the only one book I've reread was Edgedancer. Totally worth it, Lift is always amazing, but I've forgotten so many details from the books (and now cannot remember every single Hoid cameo, which is a shame)

  18. I need advice.

     

    A friend is starting Mistborn. She likes Kelsier. She says she will quit if Kelsier dies. I said he doesn't.

     

    Should I give her the right to make an informed decision? Will she be more likely to keep going if she knows from the start?

    1. Odiumiumium

      It's not lying if it's truuue......ish.... He's still around, doing his Kelsier things. I guess he isn't in the series anymore, but Vin still will be!

      True, it is about trust... Tell her Kelsier will be fine, because he's the Survivor.

      Definitely let her read without too much interference (just tell her to read Secret History after finishing era 1).

  21. Theory: Brandon was tired of people shipping Kaladin and Jasnah. So he made Wit and Jasnah a thing, just to spite all the shippers.

      Wait Kaladnah was a thing? I thought it was all Syladin or Shalladin shippers.
