  1. Does anyone know when Skyward 3 is predicted to come out?
  2. I recently watched one of Brandon Sandersons livestreams in which one of the questions was if he put reference to other media in his books and for the most part the answer was no, but the exception was the 1956 film Forbidden Planet starring Leslie Nielson in which an advanced race called the Krell was wiped out under unknown circumstances. which I think is so cool because this is one of my top fave movies of all time and it's a really cool reference. For those who do not know, and who do not care about spoilers, I will share two clips from the film and we can discus both this book and the film if you want, or just the book. But I had a bit of a fangirl moment as soon as I read the name Krell so I just had to share it. The first clip does not talk about the Krell but the second one does.
  3. It peeves me that we have some fully-colored images of Pocos and M-Bot, but no Krell ships. So, using the design given in Skyward, I made a fully-colored image of a Krell ship, viewed from the top.
  4. Alien page for the Varvax! To the bottom right are designs for Winzek and the Cleaning Lady, and some interaction shots of the Krell in their exo-suits. I heard some feedback that the exo-suits might not be completely accurate, so... my bad!
  5. So, I've only just now heard about Skyward and Sanderson's alien race called the Krell. However, the Krell are also the alien race from the old Forbidden Planet movie from the 50's. Did Sanderson do this on purpose? Is this the same race? Or a coincidence and mistake? I searched all over the Forum and couldn't find any mention of this. Forbidden Planet is a pretty famous movie, so I am kind of surprised it hasn't come up. (Or my GoogleFu is not very good... which is more likely.)
  6. Another attempt at puzzling out which shared universe Skywards belongs to. First off, all of Brandon's non-cosmere stories. And now all the possible candidates. They have to be capable of reasonably supporting a space opera. Taking out Perfect State, as I don't feel like a simulation would make for an interesting story in this context. Taking out Centrifugal, as I don't feel like there is any reason to create a shared universe from it, as there isn't anything that I felt needed further exploration or could set the grounds for another story. So we're left with Firstborn, Defending Elysium, and HARRE. I'll run through some reasons for and against each one, along with a guess about what the Krell are. Firstborn: Defending Elysium HARRE: With all of this in mind... I rank the likelihood of these stories sharing a universe with Skyward in order of: HARRE, Firstborn, and then Defending Elysium. HARRE's tech and AI would fit the best, and DE's cyto I think would be a distraction, with Firstborn sitting in the middle. But ultimately, I don't have enough info to make a final decision. Hopefully that ch. 17 will enlighten us. What do you think? Did I miss any candidates, any of my reasoning off?
