  1. Hello, everyone! I am new to the 17th Shard, but not new to Brandon Sanderson. I have read the whole Stormlight Archive(except for edgedancer), the whole Mistborn series, Elantris, The Rithmatist, Skyward and Starsight, and I am reading Warbreaker right now. I think most people's favorite series is The Stormlight Archive, but every time I read another Brandon Sanderson book, it becomes my new favorite. Also, I am a Windrunner.
  2. Hello, I am TheMathemagician, a Feruchemist currently living on Roshar, as well as a bunch of other slightly generic and slightly cheesy book references and stuffs! I may or may not also be a Potato Person, a being from a reality of five-dimensional space that is trying to take over the world. I'm probably not. Just go with that.
  3. Hi guys, My name is Daniel Rosales. I'm a huge Cosmere fan working on a Mistborn game as a fan tribute. I hope I can share it with you once I'm past the Spren level XD. I love discussing Cosemere Physics and I have a theory or two about Hoid's agenda. I look forward to learning more about your thoughts on the Cosmere.
  4. Happy Saturday, my dudes It's been actual years since I've been a part of any forum other than Reddit. So we'll see how active I am on here (hopefully I'll be around fairly often) Any suggestions on where I should start browsing? I've pretty much just used reddit for everything lately, so any interesting places to check out would be great. ✌
  5. I’m fairly new - I’ve only been reading Brando’s book for about 4 months. My addiction started when I read WoT and I went on to Warbreaker because I really enjoyed his writing style for the end of WoT. I’ve been selling off my smaller possessions to buy SA and Mistborn the first Era. I had a sample of Elantris recently though and I’m definitely going to have to sell something else In all seriousness though, I’m really glad that I found Brandon Sanderson’s Cosmere because I’ve found several new authors that I also love. I never would have found them if I hadn’t picked up Brando’s books when I was done with WoT
  6. Hello, fellow Brandon Sanderson fans! I have no idea what I'm supposed to write here, but oh well... I have read all of the Stormlight Archive books, the first two books of Mistborn, Edgedancer, Steelheart, The Rithmatist, and Skyward. Obviously, I have a couple of Brandon Sanderson books left on my list I found Brandon Sanderson books by my brothers and my dad. They kept ranting about them at the dinner table, so I decided to give them a try. It took a while to get into The Way of Kings at first; the length made it hard to start. As soon as I got into it though, I knew I had to read all of his books! My favorite characters from The Stormlight Archive would probably have to be Wit, Kaladin, or Lift (along with their individual spren); although my favorite right now is Renarin! My favorite character from Mistborn is probably Kelsier (still), and/or Elend. Anyway...Hi!
  7. Anyone know any cool tests, that relate to the ShardBearers. & do any other books tie into it? Thanks!
  8. Hello! I'm excited to finally be a part of the cosmere club. Now I can speculate absurd ways of hacking the magic systems just like I used to, but now it'll be official. Medium-sized blurb about me: favorite cosmere setting so far is Mistborn Era 2, Wayne is such an awesome character (maybe even as awesome as Lift). Favorite feasible power set (as you might be able to tell from my username): Twinborn Allomantic Slider + Feruchemical Steelrunner A theory that I've been considering recently is what would an allomantic bendalloy savant be able to do? Take his time bubble with him as he moves? Reduce his bubble to act like a second skin so that no one else could accidentally get inside and reap the benefits?
  9. Now, I have no experience in tabletop games or D&D-esk stuff, heck, I've no idea what you even call it. However, the concept has always interested me, and I wanted to ask if it was fun. Probably akin to asking a someone, "what is a maths?" I'm sure, but if you could describe what it's like, that'd be awesome.
  10. Just saying hi, long time reader and lurker, but nobody near me(geographically) that I know is reading the preview Chapters, or is even caught up with Brandon's books I needed people to discuss it with. So saying hi to everyone
  11. This is Suraj Sasidharan from Chennai, India. I have been a very frequent guest here through my Sanderson journey. Many of you have helped me in understanding concepts I did not get, give me ideas I did not think of, open up new meanings to things I took for granted and make my journey till date a better one. Thanks to everyone on this site for everything. Hope you welcome me and my mind maddening thoughts into your midst. Cheers to Brandon for the amazing world he has created in which we are nothing but sprens. Ps. Listening to Perfect State while typing this. What is your opinion about that book? Is it non cosmere?
  12. Hi! I've been following posts on 17th shard for a while and haven't gotten around to creating an account until now. I've got a few theories of my own that I'm going to be posting later, after prusing certain threads making sure I'm not makeing a duplicate. Will be nice to converse with you guys in the future!
  13. Hi?

    Hello hello, the Doctor's arrived in the cosmere! Anyway, hi, I've been lurking around the stormlight and mistborn forums for a few weeks now, starting a discussion or two, but now I suppose I'd come in properly and introduce myself. I'm a Sanderson you probably could tell. I've read every book Sanderson has written thus far, with my favorite series being the Stormlight series, with Mistborn era 1 a close second. Non cosmere favorites are Rithmatist and the Alcatraz series. Random other things I like are Doctor Who, as again, you probably could tell (Maybe I should set my title to Captain Obvious), and My little pony. heh. Oh and I'm from Malaysia. Hi! While not a theorist myself, I do love reading all those crazy theories we fans come up with. I tend to ask random, perhaps meta discussions such as Vin vs Iron Man, or trying to create trailers or posters for the Stormlight Archive (Possibly Mistborn as well). I also love writing fanfiction, although I haven't dabbled in cosmere fanfiction yet - but its a matter of time! BTW I am accepting prompts for writing if anyone has them. Also, I'm friendly (most of the time) and quite open to meeting new friends to discuss cosmere with! I love this place already, and I think I'll be very happy here.
  14. Howdy, folks! Just joining up after hearing Brandon mention the site at a recent signing. I started out in the Fantasy world with C. S. Lewis and the Chronicles of Narnia (in 6th grade), moving on to J. R. R. Tolkien and the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings (high school freshman year), moving then to Terry Brooks and Shannara and Landover (the rest of high school), then to Robert Jordan and the Wheel of Time (senior year of high school, when Crown of Swords came out in paperback, until the end), which naturally introduced me to Brandon's work while I was in college. Now look at me, several years later, with a wonderful, large family, a steady career of a dozen years (seriously--I'm guessing a lot of us here are computer nerds), and even though I've branched out into non-fiction research topics, I still love to come home to some good ol' fantasy to relax at the end of the day. Or any time during the day, like while walking to work, or taking a break from work, or during lunch break at work... Honestly, I'd rather just read all day.
  15. Hi

    I have only read the Reckoners series, my friend Venture Mistborn talked me into getting a account.
  16. Hi eeveryone. I'm Aidulin, and I just read a Brandon Sanderson book for the first time. I'm hooked, I think. The one I read was The Rithmatist, and there's only one so far in that series, so I was wondering which series you guys think I should read next? I know you'll all have ideas, but I want to get to know this fanbase a little better.
  17. Hi. First time posting here or anywhere, but I really do enjoy the connecting backstory between all of the cosmere works. I was just wondering if anyone has talked about Hoid's motivations. I personally think that Hoid is doing everything he can to get the shard worlds into direct conflict with Rayse, while crippling Rayse's ability to effectively war. The WoK letter made me think that Hoid had a personal grievance against Rayse. So far it seems like every world he has visited he has aided the magic wielders (and by extension their shards) whose intent opposes that of Odium. On Sel he helps Raodin's lady friend smuggle in weapons which eventually led to the re-establishment of Elantris, but there is no mention of him helping magic wielders of dominion (as far as I remember). On Scradiel, his actions lead to the defeat of Ruin, and the creation of Harmony, not only depriving Odium of a powerful ally (despite the fact that he doesn't want allies), but it also deprived him of a shard that he could pick up that would not drastically alter his intent. "Hatred leads to anger, anger leads to destruction (<---substitution) and so on." Now Rayse can't pick up Ruin, without getting preservation (without shattering Harmony, which I don't think he is strong enough to do directly (I have an IDEA what might start this ball rolling!)) On Roshar, Hoid is clearly picking sides against Rayse. He has stated that he is fighting against the father of hatred in WoR, but he would watch the world burn if he needed to. I believe (with little evidence), that Hoid is sick of the Cold War-esque events on Roshar for the past 5,000 years. I think that Hoid sped up the return of the KR in order to bring about the Everstorm. This desolation is the Final Desolation because it's the never ending desolation. Either Odium is defeated, or Odium wins, destroys Roshar and moves on to another shard system, creating a threat large enough to force the other shards (and the seventeenth shard) into overt action. Either way, Hoid get what he wants, which is war against Rayse. Sorry for the long post =/ PS Odium Reigns
  18. Hi fellow stormlight addicts may we never recover
  19. Well, hi everyone. I'm from Catalonia, Spain, and this is the first english forum I have never been at. While I have a decent english level, I'm still doing some big mistakes (and I'm not native, so I won't get some of the expressions you constantly use), but I think that joining this fansite after being around for a year worths it. Nowadays I have read all the Brandon's published works, and I even got White Sand and Aether of Night by mailing him, beeing TWoK my favourite book so far. While the translation complicates some aspects of the understanding of the cosmere, I got there when I read THoA and TWoK and I saw "something" in both books (you know) that took my curiosity up so I surfed the internet looking for information and here I am. That said, I hope to be fine there, and to debate the theories of this site with other users. Cya!
