Vin(Diesel) posted a topic in Cosmere DiscussionWhich actors would you like to play which Cosmere characters? Non-Cosmere Sanderson characters too, if you want.
Hypothetically let's say a Duralumin Ferring from Scardrial stored connection for years and had a lot of metal minds. If he became a world hopper and ended up on Sel, could he potentially tap all that connection and "attract" the Sheod becoming an Elantrian? Side question: assuming there just happened to be an Elantrian who could store connection, if they traveled to Roshar, could they tap the connection and potentially figure out how to alter the Aons to work with that geography? (For the sake of theoretical argument, let's assume that either distance from the shards Devotion and Dominion doesn't matter or the potential of tapping connection also maybe figuring out how to hack the local investiture or shard energy)
A friend and I were discussing Wayne and Steris' relationship, and we decided that there's probably a good setting for a series of short stories/vignettes about them as they increasingly become friends (of a sort). Steris almost certainly has a list of possible things Wayne might do to irritate her, as well as ways of dealing with them. Wayne knows there's a list because it's Steris. So the game would be: "Can Wayne do something to Steris that isn't on her list." Wayne wouldn't look at the list because "it would right take the fun out of it," and Steris would use the game as an opportunity to contain Wayne's chaos. I suspect Wayne has spent some time in the Assembly, pretending to be a member, and having fun tying people up in silly votes and time-consuming procedural motions. I was enjoying the image of him attempting this on Steris, who would utterly crush him procedurally. Anybody else have ideas for ways Wayne could mess with Steris? I assume she has well-fleshed out ideas for what to do if Wayne infiltrates any of her social gatherings or hobbies, but there's room for Wayne to work, even there.
What is the toughest animal you think you could win a fight against? The animal is going to be mad, and it will have no mercy. It is also a criminal animal. It just committed corporate fraud and stole from orphans, so it kind of has it coming. Note: I do not condone harming animals in any way. This is a hypothetical to prove your manliness/womanliness (but be honest!). I'm not a small man, but I find I don't have a lot of confidence in myself when it comes to defending against animals. On land I think I'd do alright against pretty much any animal that is missing sharp teeth or claws with the exception of an elephant or hippo. If we are into teeth/claws territory, probably nothing bigger than a single coyote. Two coyotes? I'm done. Bobcat? Probably done. Anything that is in the ocean/water would just use me as its play-thing. I don't stand a chance. I mean, if I have to give an answer? I'd probably say I could handle a decent sized carp. Or a crab no bigger than my chest. I'm trying to think of it in terms of "if someone offered me $1,000,000 to fight an enraged _____, would I do it?" Anyway, if anyone else is as bored as I am and feels like they have something to prove, feel free to post. If not I'll probably delete this as soon as things start picking up on real topics, hahaha
