  1. Depending on how many characters you want to port over, you could either do a reboot with a new thread and short time jump to help with the reset? The only thing to keep in mind is that the Edmonton RP is set three weeks AFTER Steelheart's death in Book 1, so you would want to be careful not to run up against the events of the other books. If you are going to pick it up again from where it's left off, the same thread might be easier, but either could work.
  2. That would certainly work as well. I will leave it to the group to decide.
  3. [Staff Voice]: We are re-configuring how we label RP subforums - it looks like we've had some serious turnover here since Reckoner RP leads were last identified. Who would you guys say are the current leaders for this RP? Once the list is figured out, a pinned RP leader topic that can be regularly updated is recommended. Please tag me in responding to this question so I don't miss it. Thanks! Edit: For reference, previous leads were Twilight, Kobold King, Voidus, and Edgedancer.
  4. So here's a fun Rashendi concept - you know how Ruin appears to Vin as Reen and others? What if he appears to The Lord Ruler as Alendi? The potential complicated emotions sound delicious to me, but I am curious what other's people's thoughts are. Might be inspiration for a short follow-up fic.
  5. It was fun for me, so I'm just glad other people enjoy it!
  6. Still working my way through the entire post, but Brandon has commented on the question of a Trans Returned before, so I thought I would share:
  7. Truthwatcher here For ways to refer to a group of Truthwatchers, might I suggest something like a conclave, convocation, congress, symposium, forum, conventicle, or assembly? Some fun flavour text from WoR ch 52:
  8. Many shards are nouns used to describe verbs though? Preservation is "to preserve", Ruin is "to ruin", Cultivation is "to cultivate", Endowment is "to endow". I know this isn't a universal pattern, but enough of them fall into that category that I do not see the fact that the noun is describing a verb to be exclusionary.
  9. I've been scrolling through synonyms, and I think the fave I've come up with so far is divine "Lamentation". It feels shard-ish to me, and I like that a lot of the shards have 'ion' endings. Also, my headcanon for the vessel of this shard is absolutely Blue Diamond from Stephen Universe. The way the voice actress delivers the line "You cannot fathom how much I've mourned, what thousands of years of grief have done to me" always kills me. (spoilers if you haven't watched the show).
  10. I'm assuming that the Lord Ruler, compounding nicrosilminds filled with investiture, could probably last quite a while wielding nightblood with proper preparation.
  11. Just a note that this topic was initially posted twice in two different places - responses have been merged into one single topic, and discussion can continue here.
  12. In reply to @Elegy's comment - we definitely recognize that Brandon's books may have political themes, and that there will be discussions on those themes. At times, those discussions will be very important. We have tried to build some flexibility into our moderation policies and practices to recognize that the line is not always a clear one. Where I personally start to see an issue, and will start consulting with other staff members about how to respond, is when people move beyond "this is a theme I see in Brandon's work, let's discuss how he deals with it, and what our feelings are" to positional debates about general issues that--aside from the origin of the discussion--have nothing to do with Brandon or the community. That is where we tend to see the the most escalation in terms of personal attacks and arguments which just go around and around without accomplishing anything. Hope this helps in understanding.
  13. Hey everyone. Thank-you all for the efforts to be respectful. I am just popping in to remind everyone that the subject of this thread is Brandon's response to the currently ongoing BLM movement. There are other places on the internet to discuss or debate the nature of conservatism, so please try to stay on topic here. Thank-you.
  14. *lurks* Hope everyone is doing well - maybe I'll write a post again someday
