So, I just finished Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell, which I shall henceforth refer to as Silence, for short. Aside from being an excellent novella, and a thrilling story, I noticed some stuff. For example: Why silver? Silver has never done anything on any other planets. In fact, it's been quite useless on Scadrial. Another thing I noticed: People on Threnody have very basic names, sometimes names that seem incongruous and yet familiar to those of us here on Earth. What if, dear readers (and this is a very big if), what they call "silver" on Threnody would be referred to as "aluminum" or possibly "ralkalest" on other worlds? Also, Threnody seems to be the major contender for the ever-elusive Survival Shard's hiding place, and you can possibly see its effects on the peoples of that world.
Long Game 11: Twinborn Village "Gather around to hear the history of Twinborn Village, a settlement born of two cultures that were twin in their oppression by the Final Empire and their desire for freedom. “Legends tell of a time, many generations ago, when your ancestors lived as slaves to an evil god, the Lord Ruler, in a kingdom above the ground where the sun burns so hot that the air turns to ash. The Lord Ruler used metal spikes to give mystical powers to his wicked servants. It is even said that in his quest against truth, he commanded evil spirits to take the forms of the living and confound the eyes of the righteous. “The noble Terrisman joined with the clever Skaa to create the Founders, a mighty alliance against the forces of darkness. They fought valiantly against the vengeful god for many seasons, but eventually chose to leave. You cannot devote yourself to pushing back slime without sullying your own hands, so the Founders departed the Final Empire with haste. They passed the mountains and came to a land where the air was clean. There they built a new home into the caves, a home of liberty and prosperity. “We have thrived here for many years, but now we are faced with a new threat: the Spiked. They think that they can use the evil craft of the Lord Ruler to rob us of our lives and our god-given powers and desert us. The fools! In their own greed, they would bring the Final Empire crashing down upon us again! “All of you are special. All of you were born with two abilities, one of Allomancy and one of Feruchemy. You are living in this time for a reason. This is your purpose: to kill the Spiked and return peace to Twinborn Village. I name you, the Twinborn!” Welcome to Twinborn Village, which was founded when the survivors of a crushed rebellion ran away and hid in some caves.
