  1. I think the signature requirements got changed. I used to have a 7 line signature, but it was also from 2013.
  2. Seems like Kal is experiencing withdrawal symptoms similar to Spook as a Tin Savant. He has been getting supercharged with stormlight constantly since Oathbringer, that can't be healthy. Also did Brandon ever answer swallowing infused gems like in Mistborn?
  3. Im also glad that this wasnt the final version. It was so much darker than any of the other books, and Brandon's writing has improved so much since then. The inevitable Merin showing up in the nick of time to save the day hurt the story. Taln's whole arc was very disappointing to me. Brandon's talked a bunch in his writing lectures about payoff and it just didnt seem like there was much of one for the character. What do you guys think was going to happen to Taln's body after another day? Regardless if this continued as a story, I think that Taln would be back. Even if Ishar broke the Oathpact Taln was still part of it. Did anyone spot Hoid? I thought it was the dude who turned out to be Ishar
  4. Anyone know why there is such a difference in the art between the first 5 chapters and chapter 6?
  5. The way I understood it, the first settlers were fleeing from their previous planet and they ended up in Shinovar. The next were Odium's army who were the first void bringers. Is there anything that explicitly says all the Heralds were human? I feel like that should have been enough argument that the humans weren't as bad as they seem to be painted. The real problem here seems to be that the Shards cause rampant destruction where ever the go. The Recreance could be more of a rejection of Honor. Either way Nin is a lunatic, nothing good ever comes of consourting with Shards. Hoid seems more correct in his decision to not claim one with every book that gets released.
  6. I thought that the punishments were too severe if anything. The Aetheli rule has always been that Shardbearers are above the law for better or for worse. Dalinar tells Kaladin the same thing in regards to Amaram. Dalinar is disappointed in him, I'm sure that's punishment enough considering how much he looks up to his father.
  7. They found a massive horde of gemstones beneath Urithiru, and they still control territory at the Shattered plains. Also their allies are interested in keeping them solvent.
  8. I understand why this is such an important point in regards to Roshar. Seeing the future is of Odium which is why Vorinism is against it. However in the cosmere other Shards can also grant this ability. Is this Hoid being intentionally cryptic to Shallan similar to what he told Dalinar last book about not trusting him, or is it more about the ability to see the future as being somehow corrupted by whatever Shard is granting the power? I'm not really sure where I'm going with this, I was hoping someone else could run with it.
  9. Ya I'm not sure how I feel about the bridgemen being at the same level of ideals as Kaladin. He has struggled with being a radiant for 3 books, and the moment he swore the 3rd ideal was so dramatic. Now bridgemen are swearing it left and right like it's nothing.
  10. I like where this is going. Dalinar picks up a bunch of Investiture off the Roshar system most of Honor, and then a chunk of Odium and Cultivation which creates the new Shard Unity. This aligns Adonalisium could have broken into a different set of Shards. On a completely different note, could Dalinar make Kel a new body in the physical realm that doesn't require spikes?
  11. I don't get what purpose siding with Odium serves him. Mr. T's whole goal has been to save the many even it means that he must sacrifice the few along the way, so turning that on its head makes no sense. It also doesn't jive with telling Dalinar that he wanted to seize control and was the one who sent Szeth and then immediately betraying them to Odium. Do we have any WoB stating that Odium has not tampered with the Diagram's written form like Ruin did?
  12. I agree. If all the Radiants were as broken as Kaladin and Shallan, Urithiru would have been a giant psych ward
  13. Really surprised that the Heralds know Midius by name. Now that he is a soul caster. Does this mean that he no longer needs to ride perpendicularities to access the Cognitive realm? Im also surprised that Odium seems to have far less control of his practicioners than Ruin did.
  14. rust. Looks like I need to start my reread...
  15. I wasn't expecting Vivienna. That confrontation was amazing!
