This is really something that just came up in my mind, but I thought I'd share it here, even though it's likely been asked before. How I think that atium functions is that it lets a person see someone else's relative spiritual aspect, or something along those line, as I don't have proper terminology to explain it how I wish. Anyway, as we know, Szeth died near the end of Words of Radiance, but was subsequently resurrected by Nin-son-God. However, his soul didn't reattach properly, and so lagged behind his body when he moved, especially quickly. This raises the question; would the atium shadow track his physical body, or his soul which is lagging? And if it tracked his soul, would that mean that he'd be largely able to cancel out the effects of atium foresight?
I was just curious to know what kind of voicing you gave Nightblood as you read his dialog in Warbreaker and his appearances in Stormlight Archive. Almost immediately for me, the voice that came to me was Kristoffer Tabori's HK-47 from Knight of the Old Republic. IMO, Nightblood as a character was comically detached and had a naive bloodthirsty worldview that only a soulless construct could have. So that filtered, morbidly cheery sound from HK-47 is what really fit for me. Naturally, I was a little thrown off when I heard Michael Kramer's rendition of Nightblood's voice in the Stormlight audiobooks, but that isn't his fault. So I'm curious what other readers think. Who or what was your muse when imagining Nightblood's voice? Who do you think would fit as a voice actor should there ever be a film adaptation?
So, Adonalsium. The essential God of the cosmere, shattered into the sixteen shards. Or, was he really a God? My theory (not backed up with particular evidence) is that Adonalsium is not really God himself. After all, how would a true God fall to a weapon made by (at least relatively) mortals? My theory is that Adonalsium himself was/is something akin to a shard of an actual god, but not a god that was fully shattered, per se. (so now that i write this out it sounds kinda wack) This would make all of the shards of Adonalsium essentially be shards of shards. It would also be a neat explanation of why we don't have Investiture, as that would have been taken by Adonalsium. I put this on here just so that I could clear my mind of this idea. I would like to see what the community has to say on this, although it's likely that big Brandon has already answered a question similar to this. I don't quite have the time to go looking for evidence right now, but the idea just popped into my head when I was reading Oathbringer and Evi was talking about the One, as I kinda think that that religion may be a corruption of an ancient religion that worshipped the Big Adonai himself.
Lord Pifferdoo posted a topic in MistbornMy signed copy of Words of Radiance arrived today, after a good two months, but it was worth it! I asked the question: If Elendel is named after Elend, who is Luthadel named after? This was just a question I thought of during a re-read of Alloy of Law. I just thought that I'd find a cool bit of trivia that could be put up on the Coppermind or something. But then... I have a feeling that the identity of Lutha or Luthad will become important later on in the Alloy of Law arc. What do you guys think?
