  1. This subforum should be called Roleplaying and not Role-Playing. If enough people agree, the mods might take notice and do it. Or just roll their eyes at us but hey it’s worth a shot, I do genuinely think this
  2. Would there be a way to change my Profile name before the 90 day period? I wish to un-ookla myself, but thought that there were three or four name changes. Not two. And now that Ookla season is over I would rather not wait two-ish more months to fix my name.
  3. Hi guys. I know that it's probably just a coincidence but I want to share with you a curiosity about the name "Hoid". I and a friend of mine (my only Cosmere's confindent in real life) ofter joke about this thing... until He telled me "but did you shared this thing with the forum ?" So here I am: "Hoid" spelled backwards becomes "Dioh". In Italian, the word "dio" means the English's "god" and the "h" is often (with some exception) a letter without a sound. I know that probably is just some kind of coincidence and that name came from another person (our Hoid's master) but knowing how Sanderson hides things and plays with the names (Adonai= god in Hebrew, Adonalsium= anagram for "A mind a Soul") maybe this oddity with Hoid is wanted.. or in the end I hope you may find at least interesting :-)
  4. SO. this is what you do... go to http://fantasynamegenerators.com/guild_names.php#.Vse_OahlDMI find all the random guild names. then, post them here and see what randomness insues. here are some that i got. Abandoned Privilege Rejected Genesis Worthless Ancients Blessing of the collapsed.
  5. So in Words of Radiance (can't give the direct quote or page number since I am moving and my copy is in a taped-up box), Sadeas says that he likes his wife Ialai's name because unlike most Rosharan names, which are palindromes except one letter off, her name is a perfect palindrome and therefore a bit arrogant. Similarly, Kabsal compliments Shallan on her name in Way of Kings because it's one sound off from a palindrome. So why does Laral, Kaladin's childhood friend/almost-fiancee/it's complicated, have a perfect palindrome name? Or, for that matter, Rillir, Brightlord Roshone's ill-fated son who died of idiocy when he tried to kill a whitespine? Any ideas on the inconsistency? Perhaps giving your (light-eyed) kid a perfect palindrome name was less of a taboo in the countryside, but Rillir came from the capital city, where it would have been heavily frowned upon.
  6. Has anybody else noticed a correspondence between the meaning/attribute of Aon's and some of the names of people in the Cosmere? Like Dalinar and Kaladin. I can't remember off the top of my head what Shallon had to say about letters that could represent others in order to make a name symmetrical, but perhaps this could be another aspect to the whole thing?
