  1. The thing about honor, its doesn't mean good. You can do bad things and still be honorable. Example. Honor among thieves. You could still have honor on a battle field not killing the wounded, but kill the strongest in the most violent of ways. You could torture a person if it means getting your planet back but still care about the innocent. Take a fused point of view. Pretend they are the good guys. Humans took our planet, took our ancestors mind's (I know that's only happened since the last desolation. You make a deal to live forever so you can fight for your planet just to have people imprison you. They only way you get to return and fight for what's yours is to torture them. What would we humans do. Honor takes many forms. Many can stick to a code and at the same time commit some of the worst crimes.
  2. I think this comes from the singer's originating on honors planet. It's their nature. Even the parishendi fighting bridge 4 at the end of the way of kings. Kaladin mentions how they avoided the the lopen and the wounded Bridgemen and sought out the most skilled like moash. I think this is how they were before humans came into the picture.
  3. I've have an idea the sibling could be what is making the horneater peaks livable. With the story rock told the spren of stone ended up helping them. But if this were true it would have to be help he could provide while slumbering. I still hold to the idea the sibling is like the CPU of a smart home. Dalinar could possibly provide the electricity(stormlight), but without the cpu (the sibling) it wouldn't do anything. The bond Smith that always stayed in urithiru was the siblings blondsmith and he was needed to provide the constant source of stormlight to run the tower.
  4. If things went differently, he could of become a good king. If he had the chance to finish his life become a radiant, and realize his truths...which a WoB says his first truth would of been I am a bad king....I think he could of become a great king.
  5. I've been kicking around a crazy idea and about to start my reread before RoW. When I do im gonna be watching for every clue. But the idea is noahadon is tanavast. If I remeber correctly noahadon isn't his original name. It was given to him later to get the symmetry or something to that effect. Tanavasts CS merged with the stormfather when honor was shattered, I've had the idea at least a part of him survived and is still there hiding within the stormfather. It could tie other loose ends also. If tanavast is there it would explain Odium we killed you statement. If tanavast in the past pulled a zues took a mortal form and had children kaladin being his x20 great grandchild could explain the child of tanavast comment. I just feel this could explain alot of things. Who better to write a book for a future bondsmith about how to be a bondsmith. As I'm writing this its tickling a memory. Didn't they say nohadan isn't a surgebinder?
  6. My own opinion of whats going on with that glow/voice is its tanavast since his cognitive shadow merged with the stormfather, like theres still a part of tanavast that's not fully merged. When Odium said we killed you. Since all 3 realms were together I think Odium saw tanavast in that moment helping dalinar. Again this is my opinion I'm not sure how popular it is
  7. We don't really know what the parshmen know about fabrials. But we do know they fought for gemhearts on the shattered plains. In book they wondered of they had their own soulcasters to create food for their army. Then we have the fact the fused are very old and lived in times where powerful ancient fabrials were used and made....healing fabrials soulcasters and im sure theres plenty of other types lost to time. I feel that's plenty of foreshadowing on how the parshiendi will give them a run for their money.
  8. Well its the corona virus. It gives you the power to make people drunk.
  9. I think its both. T is cultivations plant. Also the diagram is working as intended. Manipulate people to do what he wants without writing down the real plan. If its going to work even dumb T can't know the real plan so Odium can't get it from him.
  10. @urrutiap think of the cosmere as something like star trek or star wars. You have different people on different planets. The mistborn books take place on scadrial one of many planets in the Cosmere universe. People assumed this wasn't your first Cosmere book, the stormlight archives, elantris, warbreaker, many other books/series are set in the same universe. Right now its just eastereggs to connect the books but towards the end they will start to cross over.
  11. I'm not sold on your why but I do think then end of arc 5 will end with Odium shattered with nobody holding it.
  12. I want to say at his core hes good. His actions are not. Hes to "the end justifies the means". But we are still at the start of a long journey for our immortal friend. I could see him popping up in the differnt eras because he's needed. At one point the 3rd era was going to be about a mistborn serial killer. I felt it would be kelsier doing his thing killing the enemy as a hidden assassin but doing it for a good cause. A way to show how he is perceived in different times. Storm light spoilers In the end I think he'll fight for freedom and life so to me that makes him a good guy. I don't agree with his methods but if Hitler was about to learn how to make more bands of mourning and kelseir has to intervene with his kill them all and let sazed sort them out mentally to stop a world war and death of billions who and I to complain about his brutal effectiveness.
  13. I guess it would depend on what the earrings are made of. Inquisitors had lots of spikes that granted lots of abilities. Do peirced ears count as contact with blood? I agree with they decay wob states it. But at what rate. Vin wore hers most of the time but there were times she didn't have it in for a while. So I'm sure she got alot less from it then an inquisitors spike but it was enough to pierce copper clouds by boosting her bronze. If being in a peirced ear counts after they were made if people wore them and passed them down like holy relics it some could possibly have a enough of a charge to grant something, Assuming there was enough to start with after melting down the spike. I guess it would be like the coins or bands of mourning. You have to have the intent to use it. If you don't know this earing will allow you to burn bronze why try.
  14. Ingenuity?
  15. He saw it in her eyes. The anguish, the frustration. The terrible nothing that clawed inside and sought to smother her. She knew. It was there, inside. She had been broken.Then she smiled. Oh, storms. She smiled anyway.It was the single most beautiful thing he’d seen in his entire life.
