  1. Brandon Sanderson is on Shardcast! We're here to discuss some fandom stuff, and then we transition into full spoilers and Rhythm of War spoilers to talk about some big spoilers there. And yes, he DOES play Who's That Cosmere Character! Thank you for Brandon coming on and his publicist Adam for setting this up! This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Alyx (Feather), and of course, Brandon!

  2. It's time for our second Rhythm of War Words of Brandon episode, this time with some Dawnshard stuff too! As always on these, there can be cosmere spoilers too. Also, we are weirdly efficient and this episode is shockingly short. What is this madness? Don't worry, you get some total nonsense on Cusicesh at the end. We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), Grace (thegatorgirl), and Ben (Overlord Jebus) Rhythm of War WoBs 00:00 Dawnshard stuff 31:31 More RoW 42:02 More Dawnshard 1:02:36 Eric Bad At Fabrials 1:08:16 Who's That Cosmere Character? 1:16:10 Cusiceshcast 1:23:38 If you like our content, support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/17thshard For discussion, theories, games, and news, come to https://www.17thshard.com Come talk with us and the community on the 17th Shard Discord: https://discordapp.com/invite/bMAUS5c Want to learn more about the cosmere and more?

  3. Turns out there have actually been quite a lot of Words of Brandon since our last episode on WoBs, so we gotta get back into it now. This is the first of two episodes catching us up. We open this one with some non-Rhythm of War stuff (though it does have older cosmere spoilers, of course), then we dig into Rhythm of War WoBs! We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), Grace (thegatorgirl), and Ben (Overlord Jebus)! 00:00 Non-RoW Words of Brandon 28:44 RoW Spoilery stuff 1:29:15 Who's That Cosmere Character If you like our content, support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/17thshard For discussion, theories, games, and news, come to https://www.17thshard.com Come talk with us and the community on the 17th Shard Discord: https://discordapp.com/invite/bMAUS5c Want to learn more about the cosmere and more?

  4. Welcome to a brand-new year, and a brand-new Shardcast! Many of you have requested this Sixth of the Dusk 2 reading that Brandon read at the Rhythm of War release party, which you can find here. So it's time to get that done now that we finished our initial set of Rhythm of War topics, and oh boy, this one is exciting! Please be warned there are Rhythm of War things in this episode, and if you don't want spoilers for the space age cosmere, pass on this episode! We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), David (Windrunner), and Joshua (jofwu) this week.

  5. So I am listening to the newest Shardcast, and as usual I came up with a new theory. The latest Shardcast is discussing Ba-Ado-Mishram, and as they were spitballing some things I have come up with a hot take on the origins of this most mysterious Unmade. So there is some mention in Oathbringer/WoR epigraphs (I believe the Hessi's Mythica sequence) that Ba-Ado-Mishram was "A Highprincess of the enemy forces" and this seems to imply that she was some kind of mortal. Of course, this is in-book research so there can be all kinds of Recreance shenanigans. Later, in RoW, Kalak references a character called Mishram, with a certain amount of familiarity. Also, there is one point in RoW part 2 (maybe, don't have the book on me right now but it's the scene where the Fused and Venli are invading Urithiru) where Rabonial swears by "Ado," which as one Shardcaster pointed out is the first part of the Alethi glyph for light- and also similar to Adonalsium. In addition, and I'm not sure this is relevant, Chaos keeps pointing out that there are not one, but two hyphens in Ba-Ado-Mishram's name, which is unique among the Unmade. Ba-Ado-Mishram has some kind of Connection to the Parsh, Spren, and Roshar as a whole, which is unusual since Adhesion (the Surge of Connection) is called "Honor's purest Surge." My theory: Ado, the entity that Rabonial refers to, is the Spren of Lights (as in the physical representation of Investiture on Roshar), a being on a level with the Stormfather and the Nightwatcher. Mishram, the person that Kalak refers to, was once a mortal Singer who eventually bonded (in a Bondsmith-like process) with Ado, and then was corrupted/Unmade somehow by Odium, leading to the entity that modern Rosharans refer to as Ba-Ado-Mishram. The "Ba" in this case would mean something along the lines of "both" or "together." Let me know what ya'll think! I'm pretty new to theory crafting and I'd love to hear any thoughts you guys have on my style.
  6. I am very, very excited to show off this episode, Ba-Ado-Mishram and the Recreance. Rhythm of War spoilers here. We talk about a lot of the new stuff here, and go through a Recreance timeline here. And so so much more. You guys said you wanted Who's That Cosmere Character, so there you go, this is our longest podcast yet! We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), Shannon (Grey), David (Windrunner).

  7. I know Rhythm of War just came out and there’s a deluge of material for the Shardcast. I wish, SO MUCH, they there’d been more time between Dawnshard and RoW because I feel like DS has kind of been forgotten. I would love to see a Shardcast episode dedicated to the representation of Disabilities in the Cosmere. I realize this would be a ways down the list... but it would make me so happy.
  8. It's that time of the year for State of the Sanderson 2020, where Brandon tells us what he's been up to this year, and looking towards the future. It's always worth a look, and we go through all of the details here! This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), and Grace (thegatorgirl). You can check out the challenge coin case here: https://dragonwoodshop.com/ Thumbnail art, of course, comes from the State of the Sanderson blog post.

  9. This week's episode is on the Lights of Roshar. Spoilers for Rhythm of War and the cosmere (but not Dawnshard) in this one! Here Evgeni really makes up for not being on the last two episodes by blabbing a bunch, but it is all excellent. This is the good stuff. Even in this episode it feels like we still don't go super in-depth. There's so much to talk about in Rhythm of War! We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), David (Windrunner) whose audio cosplays as a robot sometimes, and then we have Joshua (jofwu). Also, we're going back to weekly after this. Our next episode will be on State of Sanderson 2020, which happens on December 19th, and we'll get a show for you out that weekend on it. The incredible thumbnail art is from Connor Chamberlain, who does just incredible cosmere art: https://www.reddit.com/r/Stormlight_Archive/comments/kbocxi/the_light_of_roshar/ You can find his other stuff here!

  10. This episode of Shardcast has a special guest: Daniel Greene! He runs an excellent YouTube channel with fantasy news, reviews, and sometimes some fun skits. We're chatting with him about fantasy in general, the cosmere, and Rhythm of War! There are some cosmere spoilers in this one, and we blab about Rhythm of War from 30:16 to about 1:25:09. You can just skip them using the chapters below if you prefer. And go check out his channel if you want content shorter than two hours! We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Ben (Overlord Jebus), and of course, Daniel Greene on this one. 00:00 Introductions 30:16 Rhythm of War Spoilers 1:25:09 ready player two and fifth sorceress and daniel novella 1:34:40 youtube and stuff 1:43:00 what are you reading now 1:56:34 Daniel's Novella If you like our content, support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/17thshard For discussion, theories, games, and news, come to https://www.17thshard.com Come talk with us and the community on the 17th Shard Discord: https://discordapp.com/invite/bMAUS5c Want to learn more about the cosmere and more?

  11. This week's episode of Shardcast is a bit late, but it's time to talk about Taravangian! This one has big Rhythm of War and cosmere spoilers so beware. Our cast this week is Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Grace (thegatorgirl), and Marvin (Paleo)! Thumbnail art of Taravangian is Mastermind, by Ari Ibarra, from Call to Adventure: The Stormlight Archive: https://www.artstation.com/artwork/g229km Art that is in Marvin's background by taratjah: https://www.instagram.com/p/BumPwumnjiO/?utm_source=ig_web_button_share_sheet/ If you like our content, support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/17thshard For discussion, theories, games, and news, come to https://www.17thshard.com Come talk with us and the community on the 17th Shard Discord: https://discordapp.com/invite/bMAUS5c Want to learn more about the cosmere and more?

  12. You thought we were done talking about Rhythm of War? Not even close. This time we have a different cast and we talk about all sorts of things that we didn't talk about in our first Rhythms of War Reactions cast. The book is so big we still probably didn't touch everything, though. But don't you worry: our deep dive podcasts will begin next Saturday, and we have so very many topics to get through. This time, we have Eric (Chaos) because he records the episodes, Grace (thegatorgirl), Evgeni (Argent), Joshua (jofwu), and Ben (Overlord Jebus). The thumbnail image is the Pailiah endpaper from Rhythm of War, by the magnificent Magali Villeneuve, https://twitter.com/Cathaoir1/status/1323683645362786306/photo/1 and you should definitely buy it here: https://www.inprnt.com/gallery/magvilleneuve/kalak-the-stormlight-archive/ If you like our content, support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/17thshard For discussion, theories, games, and news, come to https://www.17thshard.com Come talk with us and the community on the 17th Shard Discord: https://discordapp.com/invite/bMAUS5c Want to learn more about the cosmere and more?

  13. Welcome to one of TWO of our full spoilers Rhythm of War reaction podcasts. Our second one will likely be coming Sunday as well with the rest of the Shardcasters, so if you are thinking, "Man, my favorite Shardcasters aren't here," well, you'll be set very soon! There's so so much to talk about, and even given this podcast's length, it feels like we have barely said anything here. There will be so many podcast topics, that's for sure! For this reactions podcast, we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Alyx (Feather), David (Windrunner), Shannon (Grey), and Matt (Comatose)! Major thanks to Alyx for editing this!

  14. Rhythm of War is OUT! We hope you've been enjoying it. This is our first Rhythm of War Shardcast, and it does NOT have full book spoilers, just through Part Two. Honestly, we don't really talk about anything other than the Part Two epigraphs, so as long as you've read those, you are ready for this! Please no full book spoilers in the comments! And if you've read the book, well, you know why we are talking about this first. We have a big cast today! We are excited to blab about new stuff! We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), David (Windrunner), Alyx (Feather), and Ben (Overlord Jebus)! Next week will have TWO full book reactions episodes, with different cast members sharing their thoughts on the book. So you have some time to complete the book!

  15. It's our second Dawnshard episode (and our last Shardcast before Rhythm of War), and this one is pedantic! We're getting to... well, the big thing we didn't talk about in the last one. There's so much to discuss here. And here's a great line from this episode: "I guess we are going off different definitions of the word 'action' here." Excellent. Grace also blows Eric's mind at one point. We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), Grace (thegatorgirl), and David (Windrunner).

  16. Dawnshard is out! If you're a Kickstarter backer, you already got it through Backerkit. You can also get it through Amazon, and will likely appear in other ebook stores soon if they haven't already. We have TWO Dawnshard podcasts coming this week, and this is our first one, on our spoiler-free Dawnshard reactions, characters, and some lore topics. Of course, the big lore topic will be the next one, which I will try to get out as soon as I can. Please support us on Patreon to fund the soda I need to get through editing this huge pile of stuff this month. This episode has Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), Grace (thegatorgirl), and David (Windrunner).

  17. We talk about Returned, Returned healing, memory, perception, new God Kings, Vo, and the Royal Locks. Oh and Austrism. And... health insurance. Vroom vroom. No Rhythm of War spoilers, but there are Warbreaker and cosmere spoilers. We have Eric (Chaos), Evgeni (Argent), Grace (thegatorgirl), and Ben (Overlord Jebus). This is our second to last episode before Rhythm of War's release. Our last one will be Dawnshard, which ideally will be out so we can keep up our biweekly cadence, but we will see!

  18. The Original, an audio-only story cowritten by Brandon Sanderson and Mary Robinette Kowal came out on September 14th. It's science fiction about clones and lots of other things! In this episode, we blab all about it, and yes, The Original is over three hours long and we talked just below two hours twenty minutes on this. Yeah that's a sizable fraction of the audiobook! Over 50% of it in fact, and you know what, we could have talked more about it. There's so much to delve into! We start with some spoiler-free thoughts if you hadn't read it yet, but then at 18:51 we go into spoilers.

  19. We figured that after Dawnshard and Rhythm of War, we're going to be a *bit* busy, and we had a huge queue of Who's That Cosmere Characters, so let's get through a bunch of them now! And oh boy we get off the rails here, but we have lots of fun! You could say there's lots of Fafen around. Ben (Overlord Jebus) is hosting, and we also have Eric (Chaos), Evgeni (Argent), Alyx (Feather), and Marvin (Paleo).

  20. Things keep happening! We got the prologue for the Dawnshard novella, so we discuss that some, and then it occurred to us that we haven't talked about Words of Brandon in forever. There was even an event in the before-times of February! Also, a bunch of stuff from the livestreams. Next time we'll have more Words of Brandon, too! Our cast today is Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), and Marvin (Paleo). This episode is edited by the lovely Feather, who is just the best. You can get the Dawnshard prologue by simply signing up for Brandon's newsletter: https://www.brandonsanderson.com/#signupform Introduction: 0:00 Dawnshard Discussion: 4:12 WoBs: 18:05 WTCC: 1:32:14 If you like our content, support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/17thshard For discussion, theories, games, and news, come to https://www.17thshard.com Come talk with us and the community on the 17th Shard Discord: https://discordapp.com/invite/bMAUS5c Want to learn more about the cosmere and more?

  21. This episode of Shardcast, we are returning to Mirandus and the world of Dark One for more lore and analysis. You can get the ebook of Dark One right now, but hardcovers of it start shipping August 17th. You can get them here. This is our second Dark One podcast, our first one happened at the beginning of July. We anticipated this one would come out a bit earlier, but then stuff kept happening! We hope you enjoy this one. We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), and Danielle (Felcandy).

  22. We wanted to do a "short" episode of us discussing the reveal of the novella that will be out prior to Rhythm of War, Dawnshard! But then we blabbed. We blabbed a lot about a lot of things. Things we know basically nothing about. But now you will also know the nothing we know about Dawnshards and Aimians together. After all, the real Dawnshards are the friends we met along the way. For news and info on Dawnshard, see here: https://www.17thshard.com/news/brandon-news/so-the-novella-is-called-dawnshard-r579/ This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), and Joshua (jofwu). Most importantly this episode was edited by the wonderful FeatherWriter, who just did incredible on this one. This episode also was a giant pain to render, so I think really the Sleepless just didn't want you to hear our totally legit and not ridiculous theories here. Next week we won't have our usual Shardcast, but this Sunday we will have a 5000 subscriber Q&A on our Twitch, https://twitch.tv/17th_shard at 11am Pacific where we will answer your questions! The next Shardcast will be two weeks from today.

  23. Last week, when the Way of Kings leatherbound Kickstarter came out, Brandon sent one of his newsletters and it contained a brand-new chapter from Rhythm of War! So that's what we are talking about today. If Rhythm of War pre-release content is not your jam, don't listen to this one! I worked hard to be as vague as possible with the title of this to not spoil you. This chapter has not been revealed before, so it's pretty cool. You can sign up for the newsletter on Brandon's site, and it should send you the most recent one with the chapter included in it: https://www.brandonsanderson.com/the-way-of-kings-leatherbound-kickstarter-sneak-peek/#signupform This episode, we have Grace (thegatorgirl) hosting and is doing pretty good at it, Marvin (Paleo), and Danielle (FelCandy). We also have producer-Cognitive Shadow Eric (Chaos) invisible but watching this and trying to not make jokes, but does some anyway.

  24. If you’re anything like us, you’re pumped for the release of Rhythm of War in a few months. And there's no better way to prepare for it than by rereading all the books! But we’ve already done that about a thousand times. So instead, we’re revisiting our old Shardcast questions. This playlist has been designed to be the perfect refresher to listen to over the next few months. We take you through everything from the major characters and worldbuilding elements to the most esoteric questions still on Roshar. And of course we’ve got plenty of our trademark PedantiCast shenanigans.
  25. This episode of Shardcast is sponsored by Hank Green and his new book, A Beautifully Foolish Endeavor, which comes out July 7th! Go to hankgreen.com for details or get it wherever books are sold! Dark One (book 1) is out and it turns out the graphic novel is really good! Come here for our reactions (spoiler-free) and then we go into detail on some of the in-depth stuff of this universe. It's cool, and there's so much to talk about we'll have another episode on it later! This is the freshest takes you'll get from us since this is literally the first time we were discussing this book! You can get Dark One here: https://store.vaultcomics.com/products/brandon-sandersons-dark-one We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), and joining us for the first time is Danielle (FelCandy), who does awesome art herself!
