  1. Time for something different: it's our first episode that we recorded in-person! This one happened in JordanCon 2022 this April, and we're talking about Shards and hypothesizing about Shard hybrids! Sorry for the audio and video quality; I am not really happy with it here but hopefully it's fine enough. This episode have Eric (Chaos), Rosemary (Kaymyth), Evgeni (Argent), Ben (Overlord Jebus), and Joshua (jofwu)! With this, we are officially back to biweekly for the foreseeable future. Our next episode will be on the 28th or 29th. 00:00 Intros and nonsense 3:31 Which Shard would you pick? 10:12 Hybrid Shards 26:45 Audience pitches hybrid shards 37:15 What would you wish was a Shard? 49:14 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://discord.gg/17thshard Want to learn more about the cosmere and more?

  2. The wait is over, the Secret Project episodes have been slain and the Stormlight Archive 5 prologue episode is finally here! (Your resident editing Feather appreciates the patience for the slight delay.) Though deep down, we all know the REAL wait is going to be for this book's release because this prologue is SPICY. Spoilers for all published Cosmere works (but no secret project spoilers)! This episode's cast is Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), David (Windrunner), Shannon (Grey), Evgeni (Argent), and Jess (LadyLameness).

  3. Is Shardcast delayed? I thought they came out every Sunday. Why didn’t we get a Shardcast Sunday May 1?
  4. Our time with the Secret Projects is coming to a close for now, but we've got one last set of WoBs from Brandon's spoiler stream, all about Secret Project #4 and its implications for the wider Cosmere! Next week, it's finally coming: our reactions to Brandon's surprise reveal of the prologue to Stormlight Archive 5. Spoilers for all published Cosmere works, nothing is safe. This episode's cast is Eric (Chaos), Alyx (Feather), David (Windrunner), Marvin (Paleo), Veronica (Cheyenne), and Ala (Rasarr).

  5. This week, we're talking about Secret Project 4! An intriguing start and a lot of cosmere connections to pull. Next week, look out for the WoBs related to this Secret Project... and then I promise we'll get to that Stormlight Prologue next. Spoilers for ALL COSMERE WORKS. Seriously, we're not kidding. Very spoilers here. This episode's cast is Eric (Chaos), Alyx (Feather), David (Windrunner), Marvin (Paleo), Veronica (Cheyenne), and Ala (Rasarr).

  7. For those of you coming to JordanCon 2022, we will be having a Shardcast there! It is Friday April 22nd at 8:30pm in the Camellia room! We'll be doing a shorter and lighter episode (by Shardcast standards, anyway), with an audience Q&A afterwards. These will be recorded and posted on YouTube assuming things don't go horribly awry, but we don't know when as the schedule is packed with all the curveballs Brandon has been throwing. Also, we'll have merch! You'll be able to purchase a pin or a patch from us if you find us somewhere! (Note we won't have a booth, so before or after our Shardcast might be good, otherwise you'll have to track Eric or another one of us down somewhere. We will also have some very fancy ribbons to give away for free. Again, our show will be in Camellia, starting at 8:30PM and running (at the latest – we may not use the full time) until 11:00PM.
  8. This week's episode, we're talking about Secret Project 3! We decided to do two shorter episodes this time, so stay tuned next week for some more in-depth magic, cosmere, and Words of Brandon related to this one. Obviously, spoilers for Secret Project 3. This episode you have Evgeni (Argent), Danielle (FelCandy), and Joshua (Jofwu). You're spared from Eric as he wasn't feeling well during this episode.

  9. Secret Project 2 isn't cosmere, but join us for this very loopy episode where we discuss it anyway, along with news and Words of Brandon from the Secret Project 2 stream. This episode we have Eric (Chaos), Danielle (FelCandy), and Evgeni (Argent)! Don't worry, Secret Project 3 stuff is next week!

  10. Remember how last week we said "oh if there are any good WoBs we'll put them at the beginning of Secret Project 2's episode"? Yeah, no, Brandon ruined that immediately by dropping huge lore bombs instantly in the Secret Project 1 stream, so we HAD to do a full episode on that. The first hour has some crazy stuff, so take a look! This episode we have Eric (Chaos), Evgeni (Argent), Ala (Rasarr), Marvin (Paleo), and Veronica (Cheyenne Sedai)!

  12. It's time to wrap up Words of Brandon for a while! This episode we are covering the most recent spoiler stream in December 2021 and there was a lot of fun stuff here! Also, oh boy, we are loopy after five hours of recording these back-to-back. Enjoy! This episode we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), and Kadie (Ene)!

  13. We haven't done Words of Brandon since July, and there's been a quite a lot to cover! This episode covers some random events, but also FanX in September and November's Dragonsteel Mini-Con. There's spicy stuff here: aethers, dragons, Lost Metal hints, Ian completely despairing... Enjoy! Next weekend we'll have part two where we primarily cover December's spoiler stream. This episode has Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), and Kadie (AonEne)!

  14. Do you want an episode where we talk about just a SINGLE WoB? Yes, it's true, your dream--or nightmare--is here. This WoB had consumed many channels for weeks (including I think most of our staff channels) on Discord. There are such strong feelings that we needed a full episode to delve into it. Not only that, but also get insight into one of the most arcane pieces of lore in the cosmere, and it's kind of Eric's fault. This episode we have Eric (Chaos), David (Windrunner), Evgeni (Argent), Rosemary (Kaymyth), and Matt (Comatose)! The WoB: https://wob.coppermind.net/events/482/#e15299 Hero of Ages Spoiler Q&A: http://twg.17thshard.com/index.php?topic=6655.0 We'll be back in two weeks to do more WoBs from late 2021. 00:00 Introductions 2:03 Atium Basics 12:24 Weirdness and WoBs before the big one 38:44 The WoB 51:02 The Temporal Quadrant 59:14 The Swapping 1:17:47 Rosemary's Theory 1:25:04 Atium and Duralumin 1:34:10 Alloy-ception 1:44:19 Clunkiness and this in Feruchemy and Hemalurgy 1:59:46 More Talk on the Swap 2:04:58 Bronzepulses 2:13:45 Wrapping up? 2:26:08 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://discord.gg/17thshard Want to learn more about the cosmere and more?

  15. Happy New Year and welcome to 2022. The Lost Metal is finally for realsies coming out this year, and that is so great to finally say. So let's continue talking about Mistborn and Era 2 by talking about one of its biggest mysteries: the Set and Trell! Oh, and Paalm. And a bunch of other cosmere things, like Svrakiss. We're all over the place, but hopefully you maybe know more on this subject now than you did before! Today we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), and David (Windrunner)! This happened in 2017, but here's our article showing off all the Shire Post Mint coins: https://www.17thshard.com/news/brandon-news/shire-mints-mistborn-coins-are-awesome-and-heres-its-kickstarter-r337/ Chapters: 00:00 Introductions and Show & Tell 3:22 Spoiler Warning 4:20 What is the Set? 10:58 Motivations and Goals of the Set 34:05 Trell and Autonomy 55:58 Paalmcast 1:19:09 The Set Origins 1:30:31 Technology 1:39:33 Men of Red and Gold (Crack Theory Time) 1:51:14 Final Thoughts and Hemalurgy 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://discord.gg/17thshard Want to learn more about the cosmere and more?

  16. There's still so many Stormlight topics left to do (and such little time) but it's time to do a deep dive about Jasnah! We delve into her philosophy and a certain lesson, her "lunacy," and what happened with her in Rhythm of War! This episode we have Eric (Chaos), Alyx (Feather), Ian (Weiry), Jessie (Lady Lameness), Evgeni (Argent), and Shannon (Grey).

  17. It feels like it's been ages since we've been done an extremely pedantic mechanics episode, and we reread The Bands of Mourning, so it's finally time to do one we've wanted to do for ages: what the hell is going on with the Southerner medallions? We talk about what we know, what we don't know (which is most things), as well as all the other crazy magic things we got in Bands of Mourning. Also featuring: random theories on Excisors. Not featuring: actually talking the Bands themselves. This episode we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), and Ben (Overlord Jebus)! Thumbnail art is of the Bands of Mourning, by the incredible Shuravf, in one our monthly Coppermind commissions!

  18. ReDawn, the second of the Skyward Flight novellas came out on October 26th, and so we're here with another bonus Shardcast doing our reactions! It's not very "mini" of a mini-episode, but I guess under two hours is mini for us. We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), Jessie (LadyLameness), and Marvin (Paleo)!

  19. It's October, the spoopy season, so let's do an episode on Brandon's use of horror in his works! This one has spoilers for uh basically every Brandon's works. We go into tons of different horror types and more, and explore how Brandon uses these elements in his books. This episode, we have Ian (Weiry) hosting, along with Evgeni (Argent), Matt (Comatose), and Kadie (Ene)! 01:11 Spoiler Warning 01:40 Content Warning 02:34 What is genre? 08:05 Cast Experiences with Horror 18:33 Cast Experiences with Brandon Horror 29:10 Types of Horror Used by Brandon 30:20 Cosmic Horror 41:27 Body Horror 58:40 Dark Fantasy 1:05:41 Folk Horror 1:17:11 Ghost Stories 1:24:29 Gothic Horror 1:35:57 Disaster Horror 1:45:02 Psychological Horror 1:56:54 Slasher Horror 2:02:59 Who's That Cosmere Character Terrifying but amazing thumbnail image from Petar Penev, who did incredible art of the Re-Shephir fight at the beginning of Oathbringer.

  20. We love Brandon Sanderson here; that's why we've done over a hundred and fifty of these Shardcasts. But you know, we have some beefs too. We did a Cosmere Beefs episode long ago in 2018, and so it's time for some new (and updated) beefs for 2021, with some of our newer cast members as well! We have some funny beefs along with some serious ones too, but we hope our complaining is entertaining! Put your beefs in the comments; we'd love to read yours! There are some Skyward spoilers in addition to cosmere ones, which we have put on screen so you can skip past (or you can look at the chapters). This episode we have a few returners, Eric (Chaos) and Alyx (Feather), who has some hilarious reactions during WTCC. Then we have people who weren't on our first beefcast: Shannon (Grey), Jessie (Lady Lameness), Ala (Rasarr), and joining us for the first time on the show, Payden (Otto Didact)! Here's a link to our first cosmere beefs episode: https://youtu.be/noEmwqgqGWs Thumbnail from Ralf Melevo: https://www.instagram.com/p/B_lG5jmHX3M/ Chapters: 00:00 Introductions; lots to taco about 6:09 Spoiler warning 6:33 Kelsier 13:32 Anger is always a moral flaw 19:18 Reckoners spoilers 20:13 Anger cont. 22:57 Resurrection trope, fakeout deaths 33:18 Class struggle in Stormlight 47:01 Classical Scadrial and near-term history can be absent 1:01:10 Totally an actual sponsorship 1:03:42 Starsight spoilers: Delvers 1:12:12 Lack of Skyward Flight people in Starsight 1:20:54 The greatest RoW plot that didn't happen 1:29:45 Dropped RoW threads and the pure tones 1:33:42 Raboniel and Navani 1:43:14 Veil's reintegration 1:45:31 Magical combat 1:50:04 Lightning round 2:05:26 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?

  21. Sunreach, the first of the Skyward Flight novellas, came out last week, and so here's a bonus, "shorter" Shardcast on us discussing this novella! Turns out it's pretty great. There will still be a regular episode this weekend. On this episode, we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Marvin (Paleo) who brought along his slug friend, and Ala (Rasarr)! Yes, I know this is already longer than many podcasts but shhh, it's short for us. Under 75 minutes? So short!

  22. Can you believe that we've never done an actual episode on Kaladin? He's kind of a big deal, and he did a lot in Rhythm of War, so let's get into it. We also, of course, talk about depression and mental illness as well. This episode we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), David (Windrunner), Ben (Overlord Jebus), and Jessie (Lady Lameness)!

  23. We got a new Brandon Sanderson book this year already, and it is Lux! It is an Audible original set in the Reckoners universe, and it's time for us to talk about it. Overall we liked it, but we obviously get into the weeds, because it's Shardcast. Spoilers for the original Reckoners trilogy (Steelheart, Firefight, and Calamity) here, but if you haven't listened to Lux yet, we start with spoiler-free reactions. Chapters are below! Hosting this episode is David (Windrunner), and we also have Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), Danielle (FelCandy), and Marvin (Paleo)! How many ways can Evgeni say a different character when he meant Jax? Well, you'll find out!

  24. Here's our second Word of Brandon episode from JordanCon 2021! Here lay answers to critical questions like, if a tree falls in the Forests of Hell and no one is around to hear it, do the shades still get angry? And watch many questions from the general Q&A where people try to talk their away around spoilers in hilarious ways, like about a certain Scadrian's bones. Our cast today is Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), Marvin (Paleo), and Rosemary (Kaymyth)!

  25. So I was watching the sShardcast on BAM and I got this idea. What if the 3 original Spren of Roshar was Nightwatcher, Sibling and BAM. We know from Stormfather and Dalinar' conversations that Stormfather was not sentient before Honor' death. If the Stormfather was not interested in the affairs of men then how would he create a Bondsmith in those times? So if Stormfather only gained sentience post Honor' death then originally Honor' Bondsmith was selected by some other powerful Spren. Who could it be? BAM Yes hence BAM' powers with 'Connection'...that is why Honor' Splinter chose a new Spren to reside in coz the original spren has been imprisoned. Honor must have started going mad ever since Odium managed to corrupt Honor' own Spren. What do you guys think?
