Tariniel posted a topic in WarbreakerSo... I'm probably the last Sanderfan to realize this, but as I was rereading Warbreaker this morning I noticed that Austre is a play on the word austere, a hint towards the Idrian way of life. This got me interested in these little word twists, and I was wondering if you guys can throw in some other ones you have seen around the Comere Curious to see what else I may have missed...
Nedyah Drallid posted a topic in Cosmere DiscussionOf the 10 orders of the Knights Radiant, seven are named after surges: Windrunners- Gravitation Skybreakers- Division Bondsmiths- Adhesion Elsecallers- Transportation Lightweavers- Illumination Willshapers- Cohesion Edgedancers- Abrasion That leaves three orders: Dustbringers Stonewards Truthwatchers that aren't named after surges. It also leaves three surges: Growth/Regrowth Transformation Tension that don't have a specific order focusing on them. Renarin (truthwatcher) states that he "sees things." That makes me wonder, do the other two orders have special powers too, or is it just a cool sounding name? Interesting note, Windrunner's order name focuses on gravitation, and Lightweaver focuses on illumination. Kaladin's book focused on gravitation, and Shallan's focused on illumination. Tell me what you think below.
michaelmj11 posted a topic in Cosmere DiscussionHas 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?
