  1. I have thought alot about Adolin and Maya. I will be incredibly upset if Maya remains dead. The question is how we want it to happen. I want to see another spren trying to bond Adolin ( maybe an honor spren), and as they do Maya to wake up for a moment and be seen blocking the other spren from making contact. After I would like her to return to sleep. I think this needs to happen early in Rhythms of War. I think that when she fully returns it should be at the end of Book 4 or book 5.
  2. When Dalinar created Honor’s perpendicularity at the battle for Thaylen city, he brought together all 3 realms. Cognitive, physical, and spiritual. Adolin walked through that perpendicularity with his Shardblade aka Maya. Maya is a spren who was killed by her Radiant when the Oath was broken. I’m guessing a spren death is just spiritual because she manifests physically and in the Cognitive realm too, but still considered dead. But later we see her reaching out to Adolin with small impressions and feelings. My guess is that when Maya passed through Honor’s perpendicularity with Adolin, a part (or all) of her was resurrected from the spiritual realm and reconnected to her and she can now think and interact again with the world. And the explanation for her limited engagement with Adolin during his fighting being that she, like other spren newcomers to the world, takes time to regain her self and mind Any thoughts?
  3. From the album Doll Customizing

    This is made from just cheap Daiso (Japanese dollar store) UV resin, but the mold-making material is top-of-the-line. Not all of the fingers came out quite right, but that's because of bubbles and can be fixed with the proper technique. Now I just have to figure out how I'm making the wrist joint. Still, crystal hands! I'll probably make longer nails from clear bits of plastic straw and glue them to the tips to make them even more like claws.
  4. From the album Doll Customizing

    Because I like to make things hard for myself, I'm playing around with casting Maya's hands out of clear resin, to make them look like they're made of crystal like in the books. This early test run came out much better than I had any reason to expect!
  5. Adolin's Blade. Is she actually dead? She shows some cognizant abilities, but she's unresponsive. She knows her name. She's able to decide how fast she appears in Adolin's hand. she becoming less dead? Or was she never dead in the first place?
  6. From the album Doll Customizing

    I really like the way the paint job brought out the texture of the body; it goes a long way to making it easy for me to make her look organic.
  7. From the album Doll Customizing

    They look like rocks rather than crystals, even though they're real quartz! XD I think I'm going to just go with some tacky crystal beads and really play it up.
  8. From the album Doll Customizing

    Everyone's favorite deadeye cultivationspren, or the start of one, anyway. I'm so pleased with how the wood texture of her body looks, and I plan to paint it a little to bring out the effect even more. (Her head and hands come from a Howleen Monster High doll, while her body is from Ever After High's Cedar Woods.) To hide some of the "pegs" and make her a proper cultivationspren, I'm going to add some crystals, but I'm going back and forth on whether to use the small pink quartz (which are more book-accurate) or the big blue ones (which are more dramatic). What do you think?
  9. Greetings 17th Shard Community! Long story short: I want to create a Stormlight Archives video game and I need your help! Long story long: I've been a Sanderson fan since 2013. I've listened to all of the Mistborn audiobooks and love them, but the Stormlight Archive books are my favorite by far. I have listened to both twice and am on my third run though of The Way of Kings. I think these books have an incredible amount of potential in the worlds of film and media. Sanderson's writing has the ability to create massive emotional shifts in the reader; he can make you convinced that all hope is lost, and then turn the tables in one empowering instant. I was listening to Words of Radiance during my current day-job and had to physically restrain myself from jumping in the air and cheering when Kaladin regained his powers and Syl returned to him (being vague to avoid spoilers). In any case, I am also a video game enthusiast. I wouldn't categorize myself as a gamer, but I do enjoy video games as both a storytelling device and an art form. Sanderson is a brilliant world-creator and I think the Stormlight Archives could easily be translated into a action-adventure video game with an array of interesting gameplay mechanics, characters, and storylines. The progression of the Way of Kings is perfect for a compelling video game storyline: Starting with Szeth hunting King Gavalar to give the player a taste of the gameplay mechanics in a tutorial section, followed by taking everything away during the period of time Kaladin is in captivity to establish a character progression. The War of Vengeance perfectly alines with classic dungeon crawler gameplay, with the common trope of the hero (Kaladin, Dalinar, Adolin, or Szeth) slaying hoards of enemies (Parshendi) along a segmented map (plateaus in the Shattered Plains). However I would want the game to be a 3rd person melee similar to Shadow of Mordor by Monolith Productions. I think there are a lot of interesting ways surge binding could make the gameplay unique. Ideally the game will end up as an open world where the player can fly (fall) all the way across Roshar, but I'm getting ahead of myself. If any of this sounds interesting to you folks I would love to here from you. If enough people are interested, I would like to start a small production company to try to accomplish this goal (if we can get permission from Sanderson). I have a decent amount of experience in the video game creation pipeline due to several game studio courses I took in college. However my expertise lies primarily in the art and animation fields, so I need some people who know how to code in order to put everything together. I intend to move forward with this project on my own, but any help will gladly be accepted. If you are at all interested in: Coding for gaming Game creation Fan art creation 3D Modeling Character Rigging Please let me know. As you can tell if you've read this far, I have big dreams about this game. In reality we will have to start small and build up. I hope some of you lovely folks will join me to make this dream become reality. If you have any questions just ask. Sorry about the long introductory post, I hope you all have a lovely day. Chris
  10. This is the argument that Adolin makes a much better Stoneward than Edgedancer, and that it's possible he might actually become one. There's a lot of stuff to get through here, so I'll try to be concise. And yes, this theory addresses the fact that Adolin is already sort of bonded to Maya. I've already posted this idea on tumblr and reddit (with mixed reactions) and am now posting it here with some new arguments and evidence I've thought of since. Why not Edgedancer? Why Stoneward? How could this even happen? Seeing as Adolin is already bonded to Maya, a cultivationspren? Why would this even happen? Why would Brandon or any of the characters in the book want this to happen? That's it. Please tell me what you think.
