  1. Brandon Sanderson is a rusting genius. I just had to say that.
  2. HDjsnvjdnvjsnvkcn what is that Emperor’s Soul dog meme I can’t. :lol:

      I just found the image. My family has cats sadly 

  3. For those not aware, Brandon as well as his Writing Excuses crew are coming to the World Fantasy Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah. Brandon was announced as a special guest in January, but this morning an update email was sent out by the World Fantasy Convention: I myself registered for attendance in December. Is anyone else planning to attend?
  4. I don't know if anyone has already posted this video here, but I recently discovered it, despite it being a few months old. Regardless, I figured I'd post the video here should anyone not have seen it before. P.S. Sorry if this is the wrong place on the forum or if the video irrelevant.
  5. I just finished reading The Rithmatist, and now I'm dying to read the second one. Only problem: It's not out yet. So I'm bored and totally in love with The Rithmatist, and I've currently lent the book to a friend so I can't re-read it. So... thoughts on the rithmatist? Questions? Hopes/concerns for book 2? Someone please help me get thinking about it again.
  6. Hey, is Prof otherwise known as limelight based on the Rush song of the same name. I noticed a few lyrical/thematic parallels, such as "one must put up barriers to keep one's self intact" obviously akin to his force fields and more subtle ones like "I can't pretend a stranger is a long-awaited friend" echoing how he met David. As a huge Rush fan I am not entirely partial to this idea but there at least seem to be a lot of consistencies between the song and the character. (as a new member I can't post a link but it's not hard to look up)
  7. Greetings fellow Sharders, just came in from watching a video from a youtuber I follow by the name of Shad. He released a video today of an interview he did with Brandon, covering various topics, such as the intersection of realism and fantasy, a few various questions, such as who Brandon's favorite super hero is, various pop culture items, publishing and self-publishing, and the announcement that Shad is going to be doing some consulting for Brandon in regards to various Medieval things, like swords, combat, armor, etc. I just wanted to make a thread to see what the thoughts are of anyone else who has watched the video and to discuss the contents therein. Video Link
  8. Jasnah Kholin, my bae uwu I have always imagined her looking a little intimidating, idk, but I kind of like it… still not very good at drawing digitally, so practicing with cosmere characters really motivates me… ;p
  9. I made a Shallan. Will maybe redo the coloring part when I get better at clip studio paint. Just started painting digitally two weeks ago and it's pretty hard uwu
  10. The secret project is now out, and it's free to read. Children of the Nameless is a novella set on Innistrad, one of the planes featured in Magic the Gathering. It's Brandon's longest novella to date, and does not require any knowledge of the setting to enjoy it. https://media.wizards.com/2018/downloads/novella/Children_of_the_Nameless.pdf Feel free to discuss the story to your hearts content in here.
  11. From the album Rosharan Nature Journaling

    I made up a version of what I think a baby santhid would look like. This is based off how jellyfish reproduce.
  12. Here is my blog post: https://shazarose.blogspot.com/2018/09/two-men-manuscript-how-i-got-moshe-to.html which documents a conversation I had with Moshe Feder on why he decided to acquire Elantris. It touches on other topics as well, but I have kept those in because some readers might be interested in them. If you are not, you can always skip around to just the Elantris parts. =D
  13. Heyo guys! I finally made a 17th shard account! (Finally!!!) Okay, this is really, really random, so be prepared. You guys, do you ever think that maybe Brandon Sanderson was stumped on the stick scene (pun intended)? And so, at 3:00 AM in the morning, with a stroke of pure and amazing genius, he wrote I AM A STICK as a joke and then it became a thing when someone else read it or something? Then somehow it became the most iconic and poetic line in the entire series. You guys we should make a kelek stick poem.
  14. My husband just asked me if there was a place where someone had complied all the thoughts on leadership Brandon Sanderson includes in his books. He teaches an Art of Leadership class to middle schoolers and is always looking/listening for new ideas. I am currently relistening to the original Mistborn Series and Tyndwell (forgive me, I am an audible listener) is hitting Elend hard with how to be a king. But there's so much more, especially in the Way of Kings. Anyone seen anything like this?
  15. I couldn't find a poll for this topic and I love the Graphic Audio adaptations that have been done for the Mistborn stories so I thought it might be a good topic to put out there. Regarding my personal favorite, while not my favorite Mistborn novel as a whole, my favorite adaptation from Graphic Audio is Shadows of Self. The voice acting for everyone was top notch, hearing Sazed soothing voice again was a joy to listen to, the music was so fitting for the pacing and Wayne's collection of accents was beyond entertaining. Even the disturbing parts were phenomenally done, like the part with the chauffeur that encounter the Bleeder and thinking it was a Mistwraith of old, he started shouting in despair that he lost his soul. And the voice acting for that final scene man! I wanted to hug Wax so hard. So yeah, Shadowws of Self is my favorite one, though Final Empire and Hero of Ages come close, in that order. How about everyone else?
  16. If your on this site, then you probably already know that Brandon Sanderson is a pretty good author. But I want people's opinions, is he the BEST? If not, then who is? What makes him a good writer?
  17. Hello all, This is my first time starting a topic on these forums and, well, my first posting ANY topic on ANY type of forums. So like I said, a beginning. Anyway, I just listened to Writing Excuses for the first time, despite seeing constant updates from Adam on Brandon's website about it. This weekend, I tried it out by listening to both the most recent episode and the very first episode. I gotta say, I've been missing out. I really enjoyed listening to it. Just out of curiosity, who are the other people that are part of the podcast? Brandon is the only one that I specifically know of.
  18. Hello Friends, So, I recently finished every single Brandon Sanderson book and was quite please with myself; however, the negative repercussions of such an accomplishment is having to go back to readying fantasy written my mere mortals. In light of such a disheartening prospect, it would be great to gather a repository of books to 'tide us over' until the next Sanderson epic induces our next inevitable reading binge. Any recommendations are appreciated, here are a few I have personally enjoyed, no sophisticated ranking system required, just what you have enjoyed within the fantasy/epic fantasy genres. Here is a link for the series on my 'Plan to Read' list, ill continue to update it: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1EGd6CiPTxXp4o_ew9PWfZC0-ODjU3becGgdcF_E69UA/edit#gid=0&range=B2 Throne of Glass Series - Sarah J. Maas: Not a huge fan of the never-ending relationship drama, but seriously some of the most epic and incredible fantasy I have every read Inheritance Cycle - Christopher Paolini: Perhaps not the most ground-breaking or unique storyline, but I had lots of fun getting through this one The Broken Empire Trilogy - Mark Lawrence: Much darker and grittier, but a unique enjoyable series Temeraire - Naomi Novik: Cool blend of alternative history and fantasy, really enjoyed remembering some of my High School history of the Napoleonic wars Malazan Book of the Fallen - Steven Erikson: If you can finish this series, you have the stamina of a spartan. Almost too epic and all-immersive... if that's possible haha. What say you?
  19. I just made this video and wanted to get the Forum's take on it. Are there any interesting factoids that I missed? Let me know what you guys think!
  20. So I was just browsing Brandon's website today, as one does, and I came across a new "status bar" he has set up underneath Oathbringer, simply titled "Secret Project". Anyone have an idea what this could be??
  21. I'm looking for a complete list of ALL material (books, comics, ect...) in the cosmere. I've done some looking around and i thought i knew what i needed to know but i just barely found out about shadows of silence and its sequel. I hope this is the place to ask
  22. The title is pretty self explanatory. This is my opinion of how the Cosmere on screen should be conducted. This is for something along the lines of how it could be done with Netflix even though the rights have been taken by DMG. I know Brandon has said that it’s not likely to be done as an animated movie given how stuff like that has to be framed for kids, but there seems to be an advent of love for adult fantasy lately. Netflix seems like the easy answer for a platform here, but really, they’re already dipping their toes into expanding shared universes. I’m thinking two movie specials. One of Elantris and one of Warbreaker. These cover the books as much as they can. Then a spring release of Stormlight Archive season 1 covering Way of Kings. Then a winter release of Mistborn season 1 covering The Final Empire. It will keep with the regular alternating release of Stormlight then Mistborn and maybe a summer double feature movie of White Sand somewhere down the line. It should take about 10 years total to cover most of the Cosmere. Stormlight will end on ten books and Mistborn will end Era three on ten books. (Final era Mistborn will be addressed in a bit). At this point, the Cosmere franchise will be left with the Dragonsteel storyline. Given that the other backbone series have been completed, this will be sort of a ‘rebirth’ moment for the audience where the Cosmere line will be more streamlined. Only having to follow one series after all these would make everything feel fresh. (Honestly, it’d be like that moment you organize your books and declutter). So. Dragonsteel would cover seven seasons (one per book). Maybe they could do a Voltron thing where they sometimes release two seasons per year. When that’s finished, the final Mistborn series comes into play. Maybe they make the audience wait a little longer than usual for its release given how for more than a decade, a movie or tv series have been given in quick succession. Given how Mistborn Era 4 is the capstone to the Cosmere, it should probably be released as it’s own series and not under Mistborn. Maybe under a title like Cosmere: The Final Era. It will tie up the universe and should have longer than normal episodes to try to get as much of the books in there as possible. Naturally, even under a format like this where there’d be more story material than a movie, we still can’t have everything from the books present. As a compromise, Brandon would be a regular consultant and source for what should absolutely be kept from pivotal scenes to character moments. Stuff like this probably won’t happen but I wanted you to know what you guys think of this. Maybe you have a better suggestion of how things could be done?
  23. hey everyone! I host a podcast where me and my cohost talk about all sorts of nerdy things, but we often talk about Brandon Sanderson and his books. In our most recent episode we talk about our experience at the Oathbringer release party in Provo. We've talked about some of Brandon's works in our previous episodes as well. We talked about Oathbringer in the latest episode, but we are still reading the book, so we didn't talk spoilers or get too much in to depth with it, mostly just our impressions of the new book and how we are liking it so far. We plan on doing an episode in the near future where we spend a good amount of time talking Oathbringer and Stormlight Archive after we've finished reading the book. So if you get a chance, check us out and let me know what you think. We are a fairly new podcast, we're only on episode 11, so we are learning a lot and having fun. The podcast is called Random Angst and we are on iTunes and Soundcloud.
