  1. So recently while reading way of kings prime I found myself drawn back to the surges of our knights radiant. One that perplexes me a bit on its full application is transportation. I know it allows elsecallers and willshapers to go to the cognitive realm but I wonder if there might be something more. I could be wrong but I believe the pursuer used the same surge (granted he is a cognitive shadow) in a different manner. Which left me wondering if radiants could as well. Anyone else have thoughts or ideas? Please feel free to discuss below and thanks for commenting.
  2. Jasnah came back from Shadesmar without an overt perpendicularity. There was nothing special about the ship or the location whence she went into Shadesmar either. Does that mean that the Knights Radiant in principle have access to Shadesmar even while Odium's forces hold the Horneater Peaks? If so, can this be used? Will they use it? They have certainly opportunities for trade. Stormlight is essentially free to them. The Spren certainly have knowledge to give. Will they use that opportunity?
  3. So, I'm rereading WoR and something struck me from Lift's chapter. Windle mentions that the reason he believes Lift can turn food straight into stormlight is because she is partially in the cognitive realm. Now that got me thinking. Could an Elsecaller do something similar? They are the one's closest to shadesmar because of their abilities so maybe they can, maybe just temporarily, move part of themselves into the cognitive realm so they can get a similar affect. Perhaps is the Elsecaller's resonance. Just a thought I figured I'd throw out here to see if others have had similar thoughts or could build upon/disprove this theory.

  5. I can't help but paint after reading a series that I adore, and of course, Jasnah Kholin, Queen of my heart, will always come first! There's no one I admire more.
  6. So I know that lightweavers and elsecallers share soul casting as a surge, and if I understand this correctly they are basically using astral projection to enter shadesmar or the cognitive realm to do this. With that being said couldn't lightweaver still travel in shadesmar while being "projected" there. So could they not also have a form of the elsecallers transportation surge, or am I way off base here.
  7. From the album Bored Doodles

    As an honorary Elsecaller, I thought I’d try to draw the Elsecaller glyph. I’m just going to say how glad I am to not be a woman on Roshar. Those things are storming hard to draw. And to memorize them no less.
  8. The next drawing in my series of shardbearers from the ten radiant orders. This design departs from the official drawings of shardplate the most and is meant to have a sharper and sleeker design than my previous drawings while still retaining the signature bulk and power of shardplate. If you are wondering why the figure is descending through a giant portal it is because I wanted to show the shardbearer in the middle of elsecalling, and since I don't know what elsecalling actually looks like I imagined it like this. Hope you like it!
  9. Jasnah and Ivory from Oathbringer! Out of curiosity, would there be people interested in buying prints of my Cosmere art? I'm considering opening a print shop or doing a kickstarter to get prints done before the Holiday season. Let me know what you think!
  10. So, as far as I know, the only way we have seen or heard of the surge of transportation being used is as 'elsecalling' by which the user teleported into the cognitive realm. But there are several references, such as when Teft explains the radiants' abilities to Kaladin, that radiants could travel great diatances in an instant. Is this another use of the surge transportation? Is it perhaps the way that Willshapers use the surge, where Elsecallers travel to Shadesmar instead? Thanks in advance for your input.
  11. I’m just curious, do we know what level of Radiant Jasnah is yet? We know she isn’t a full Radiant yet since she doesn’t have her armor or she presumably would have summoned it, and also because she clearly isn’t at her full potential when it comes to realm-hopping seeing as it took her over a year to get back from Shadesmar. But seeing how ludicrously overpowered she is in the Battle of Thaylen Field in terms of her Soulcasting even without her armor, it wouldn’t at all surprise me if she’s at least sworn her Fourth Ideal. Are there any WOBs addressing this? I wasn’t able to find any.
  12. I was browsing Theoryland and found this tidbit from two weeks ago about Jasnah's spren Ivory: QUESTION What kind of spren is Ivory? BRANDON SANDERSON Inkspren.'inkspren' I would love to edit the wiki but I don't actually know how. So I figured here would be a good place to ask if someone could show me how to do it, or just edit the wiki themselves. I think this applies to the pages about Jasnah Kholin, Elsecallers, Knights Radiant, and Surgebinding iirc. Thanks!
  13. So I like Elsecallers and the seeming ability to teleport, what I don't like is from what I read its not that special. So Hoid shows that if someone knows how to use the shadesmar (apologies if I miss-spelled that), they can not only world hop, but teleport within the world (example: the implication that Hoid teleported to the well of ascension to beat Vin there and grab a bead of lesirum). So if one of the two abilities of the Elsecallers, and one other order of radiants is teleporting, then what is unique about it when ANYONE who can manipulate the shadesmar can do it as well? It is suggested that Hoid is a lightweaver but can hop around as he sees fit. Could this be something unique to Hoid? Otherwise it kind of deflates the coolness factor of the Elsecallers teleportation for me. Thoughts?
  14. Newest set of profile icons featuring each of the Knights Radiant's glyph inscribed on their respective gemstones. You can download any of these files for your personal profile in addition to a number of other glyphs by clicking HERE. There are a few alternate versions of the gemstones as well.
  15. I found there to a be a general lack of quality Knights Radiant glyphs to use for profile icons so I decided to make some myself. This is the first set, representing the Knights Radiant glyphs as pictured on the Surgebinder's chart. I will probably be making sets for various other Sanderson works eventually so the forum is evenly represented. The icons are free to use by anyone. You can download the individual icons HERE.
