  1. BUT!!! More buttons is better better buttons!! On topic, however. I would ask him if the Singers shattered the plains and if that was Their part of breaking the Oathpact.
  2. Also, I have experienced music so beautiful that it demanded my attention. So ‘Demanding’ doesn’t necessarily mean that it was loud or obnoxious. I immediately thought of Tien when I read that.
  3. Ignoring everything else we have seen and heard from Kaladin and focusing solely on his knowledge of Medicine and Surgery... Kaladin is absolutely intelligent. He also has the more subtle, but equally impressive, ability to address people and situations in relatively short order and and USUALLY have the right plan to organize them. Yes, without question, Kaladin is brilliant.
  4. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 1 or 2° Kelvin would be my guess.
  5. I ‘Read’ most books in Audio format these days. Thanks to real life necessities, I can’t devote hours to devouring books in print any more. But since I spend a lot of time driving, I can listen for hours. Michael Kramer and Kate Reading are definitely far from the worst narrators you will listen to.
  6. Nope. Their appearance varies depending on your interpretation of Ideal Facial Hair. Perhaps a Goatee, Fu Manchu or completely untamed Face Mane... Observation does have an observable effect, after all.
  7. I started WoT in 1993, ASoI&F And SoT in 1996 and KKC in 2010... I ABSOLUTELY Love the anticipation. I live for the announcement of ‘The Next Book.’
  8. Rock’s reunion with fam’ly here hence ‘Pon plains e’nly shattered past tense All loved were well met Con’squences beget Welcome with all acceptance Enthused by the limericks I post Face-Palmy they are at the most Double posting, no shame I am Limerickally lame Though by typing them all I shall boast.
  9. Hmm... That actually makes a lot of sense.. I shall arbitrarily disagree with you and sing NANANANANANA with my hands over my ears. Rlain as the Cultivation/Nightwatcher Bondsmith does make more sense too, doesn’t he?
  10. I dig it. Navani really is the strongest candidate. I just have a deep love of being blindsided by unlikely turns in stories. House Kholin is also already heavily represented. Observation, not complaint. But Navani would just be another Kholin. I am hoping for the 2nd and 3rd Bondsmith’s to be outside of that House.
  11. I actually think that might be a better place. That said, I can’t decide who I want more for Nightwatcher in the front half. Navani stands more than strong enough on her own...... OOHHH!! Hessina... (sp?) Kaladin’s Mother, failing that, Lirin.
  12. I like Rlain as the Sibling Bondsmith. But I REALLY like Lift for the Cultivation/Nightwatcher Bondsmith. Can’t really say why... Except pancakes. I know she is already an Edgedancer, but there is WoB that says it is possible.
  13. Rock was named for a beautiful thing to speak it aloud, the poem you must sing You’ll be on the spot, you dare falter not for a Horneater duel twill bring A thing I shall freely admit My mem’ry is often amiss As I scroll through this thread Upvotes I will spread To those the first time through I had missed
  14. I still get chills.
  15. So, I am going back through WoT, just for some light reading... And it occurred to me that I can’t recall any hardcore Red Herrings in any of the BS books that I’ve read (The Big Herring in WoT doesn’t count here). And for those not familiar with that story, I won’t spoilerify it here. So I really started thinking about SA and who would make a truly AWESOME Red Herring. I’m talking thousands of pages of build up, antagonist or protagonist, whose story promises an epic confrontation or resolution... And just... ends with a period at the end of a sentence. For instance: Hoid: has appeared in (nearly?) every Cosmere work so far. He seems to be the driving force behind all of the behind the scenes stuff going on in the Cosmere. What if his ending is just “Well, damnation... this is truly inconvenient.”? Odium/Rayse: After all of his build up and how he has manipulated the emotions of people, Listeners and Human alike, to set events in motion for the current conflict. To just be finished in some inauspicious, unheralded way. Or...’shudder’... The Lopen. He is the lighter side of the backbone to Bridge Four and no matter what he says, has probably literally been through the ringer. I mean in completely unsatisfactual fashion. Good, Bad or heavily Gray Characters. Who would you be most unhappy to find out was a Red Herring?
