  1. Hi! I just created my profile like 3mins ago but am not new to the Cosmere. I Have red Mistborn 1st series and 2nd(or what's of it so far), I've read Elantris and Warbreaker, and the whole Stormlight Archive. I'm looking forward to meeting the other fans of the Cosemere! I like to play D&D and have played it for like 3-4 years now.
  2. Hello, everyone! I am new to the 17th Shard, but not new to Brandon Sanderson. I have read the whole Stormlight Archive(except for edgedancer), the whole Mistborn series, Elantris, The Rithmatist, Skyward and Starsight, and I am reading Warbreaker right now. I think most people's favorite series is The Stormlight Archive, but every time I read another Brandon Sanderson book, it becomes my new favorite. Also, I am a Windrunner.
  3. Hey hey! Long time fan, but new to the 17th Shard! My name is Arel! Owner of where I make cool stuff and where we host dope virtual events. Hosting a Cosmere virtual event would be the dream =D
  4. Ok so, almost 3 years ago I joined this forum and made an introduction post, only to never post again! Yes, I'm useless. But I'm going to turn over a new leaf. Nothing's really changed in 3 years. I still love The Cosmere, I still listen to Shardcast regularly, as well as all of Brandon's books on a cycle of repeat, (I've just actually finished WOT for the first time this year, before i started my Stormlight reread), and I'm currently half way through my first reread of Rhythm of War. Anyway, I'm going to try to be more active this time round. Speak soon,
  5. Hello All, I'm sure you've all heard this before. Long time reader of everything Sanderson, but I have stayed away from this shard for a long time, RoW SPOILERS? I'll try to be vague, but its why I finally have come here. BUT JEEZZEEEE!!!! I just finished that Rhythm of War and oh my goodness. I simply needed to talk to others and listen to others and vent about how amazing this all is. The huge changes, the sudden duping of he who cannot be duped. it just flipped everything I thought and all the presuppositions I depended on. I have a big issue in stories like these of putting a character on a pedestal and assuming that everything they did, was done for good/would in the long run work out. But like, Sanderson just flipped that on its head. As such I need to delve into some forums and discussions. Once again Sanderson pulls ahead as my favorite author.
  6. Hello! I am new to 17th Shard and have just started watching Shardcast. My partner introduced me to Mistborn back in July of 2019, so I have only been aware of the Cosmere for a year and change. I have read all released Mistborn, Warbreaker, Elantris, Stormlight (up to date on RoW), and all of Arcanum Unbounded. Pretty much the only thing I haven't read is White Sand. I have been incredibly spoiled at being able to read the next book at any time so now that I have to actually wait.. for each book to be written.. how do y'all do it? My crazy theories only grow in the dark.
  7. Hi everyone my name is Frosche! I'm not super new to the universe but only gone through 2 of series. Main purpose of joining the forums is to get some feedback and understanding of the material. I've always wanted to see a Mistborn video game so setting out to create one myself. I do however have some question regarding how others have visualised the books, knowing that everyone does this differently. I'd like to get a wider understanding how everyone thinks the world of Mistborn works! Hope to see you around in the posts!
  8. I'm a long-time reader of Sanderson's works but a first-time poster. I'm a family man and software developer in Tucson, Arizona. Over the years I have loved all his books, he is easily the best author of all time. My favorite is a tie between 'The Way of Kings' and 'Towers of Midnight.' I've never been very good at posting in forums. But I'll try to drop by from time to time (especially when I'm in the middle of a fantastic Sanderson book).
  9. Hello, My name is Mathis and while I am new to this forum, I have been reading Sanderson novels since my mom introduced them to me when I was 15 or 16. I met Vin when I needed her and became a fan of his books. I have since read Elantris and Warbreaker, as well as the Wax & Wayne books. I didn’t realize there was a bigger universe at play until I read Mistborn: Secret History. If there’s one thing I love, it’s expansive fictional universes. I immediately picked up The Way of Kings, and I have just finished my second read through of all three SLA books. I am very excited for book 4!
  10. Hi

    Hey everyone. Long time Sanderson fan and lurker, first time poster. The Shardcast made me finally break down and check out the forum and I'm kicking myself for not doing it earlier.
  11. Hi! I'm gonna be honest: I'm here because I don't know anyone else in real life who reads Sanderson - let alone reads fantasy, goddamit! I've read Mistborn, SA, The Emperor's Soul, and that's pretty much it, since my local library has a deplorable selection (those are all the books they have) It's thanks to Sanderson that I have learned to love reading, and it's thanks to him that I've learned so much more English. So, on a more personal note, thank you, Sanderson, for changing my life and helping me expand my diction; it has helped me with school more than you would believe. Who knew reading helped with essays, hah! I had always been one of those guys who said they "hated" reading, until I picked up fantasy. I'd never read a book out of my volition before then, lol, because I didn't grow up in a bookish environment. Anyways, I've been thinking about getting a Cosmere tattoo: the allomantic symbol for bronze. It's not my favourite of the allomantic metals, but I like the meaning it carries. Bronze is burned to detect other mistings, so, well, I'm hoping the tattoo helps me find other Sanderson fans familiar with the symbol. What do you guys think? -Vahlia
  12. Hi! I'm fairly new to Brandon's works and this website, obviously. The first book of his I read was Skyward, which surprised me with its great humor and plot twists. I moved on to Warbreaker, and have since read Mistborn: The Final Empire, Elantris, and Steelheart. I still have to finish those series, and a long time yet to read The Way of Kings. I'm currently obsessed with The Wheel of Time, but have only managed to read 2 books because the others are always checked out at the library. Brandon's popularity makes it difficult to finish any series of his, but I'm making a valiant effort! See you guys in the Sanderson wormhole! - NorthStar Update: I finished TWoK and am starting on the sequel! Also, I've finally gotten my hands on the Reckoners series and the 3rd WoT book. Happy reading!
  13. Happy Saturday, my dudes It's been actual years since I've been a part of any forum other than Reddit. So we'll see how active I am on here (hopefully I'll be around fairly often) Any suggestions on where I should start browsing? I've pretty much just used reddit for everything lately, so any interesting places to check out would be great. ✌
  14. Hello! I've been a Writing Excuses fan for just over a year(listening to the archives and all) and I've been gradually picking up Brandon's books in various formats. (And his cohosts') I'm halfway through Way of Kings and I found this board, so I'm going to post here and try to avoid spoilers for books that have been out for a while. That should be easy enough, right? I do have a question: Should I read through an entire trilogy or could I jump from SA to Mistborn (Book 1/Book 1, Book 2/Book 2, etc...)? Obviously you lot are more well-versed in the cosmere than I am, so I wanted your input on what comes next. I'll probably have Way of Kings finished early next week. Thanks for having me and I look forward to getting to know the fanbase.
  15. Hey guys, I'm Emon from India. Just finished reading Oathbringer, completing Stormlight. I've read Mistborn era 1, Warbreaker, Elantris and the Arcanum Unbounded short stories. Just wanted to ask, what do you think Nightblood, Vivenna/Azure, Vasher/Zahel doing on Roshar? And how do you guys think Nin got hold of Nightblood? How did Vasher lose it?
  16. Hello, First off I can't believe it took me such a long time to join this fansite. I was introduced to Brandon Sanderson's works by a friend. The two of us had always had a similar taste in books, i.e - fictional fantasy with good character development, intriguing plot and a pleasing narrative tone. We had fallen in love with the Harry Potter series, Lord of the Rings series, the Name of the wind and others. So when she introduced me to the Stormlight archives, I was all in. It took me a while to warm up to the characters but 100 pages in, I was rooting for Kaladin like never before. By the end of the first book, I was in love with the series. I felt the character's highs and lows. I fell in love with the overarching arc of the series. Brandon Sanderson's form of writing in the Stormlight archives led me to his other works. Unlike many authors who have a repetitive style of writing when they publish multiple books/series, Sanderson has the ability of making each series unique. I guess one of the main reasons I ended up here was because I shared the series with another friend of mine. She just finished The Oathbringer and as we both finished the last chapter together, I realised that there was so much about the book that I discovered as I reread it. There are still so many questions and so many beautiful moments that need to be talked about. So here is to this fandom and waiting for the next book in the series with you guys
  17. Hey y’all I’m new here and I just finished the Mistborn trilogy and I’m in love with it! What should I read next?
  18. Hello! Happy to call myself a Worldhopper! I'm ashamed, however, to say that I've known of 17th Shard for almost as long as I've known of Sanderson's existence, and only just joined. Now, before you cast me to the Pits of Hathsin, I had only read the first Mistborn book from the first era and was afraid of being spoiled of things I knew nothing about. I took a few quick glances here and there on the site and read several things that almost instantaneously shattered my Shardblade on contact. My reasoning for staying away at the time was undeniable. But, I'm excited to be here, and I'm just going to do my best to remain unspoiled until I finish absorbing his work. So far, I've read the original Mistborn trilogy, The Way of Kings, Steelheart, Firefight and Children of the Nameless. I own several more books than this, but I was trying to pace myself through them so that I don't run out. I think I'm leaning towards casting that notion to the winds of a Highstorm and doing the exact opposite - volunteering for the front of a bridge carry. I should be fine. I know of at least one other who has done it and survived...
  19. So, um, Hi! I am new here and just finished Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson. I would be curious about the opinions of others on Vin's death. It is interesting. I have to say, I do prefer The final Empire to the others. I have never really been a big fan of the books in which the main character dies in the end. Mistborn is an exception, being one of my facorite books of all time. I would like to see if any one else would have liked Vin to stay alive or thought that the death was fitting for the story.
  20. Hi there! I'm Naveen.. I just joined the forum.. I've read the entire available Cosmere and the Reckoners Trilogy.. I've also completed 2 books from WoT!
  21. Hello, fellow Brandon Sanderson fans! I have no idea what I'm supposed to write here, but oh well... I have read all of the Stormlight Archive books, the first two books of Mistborn, Edgedancer, Steelheart, The Rithmatist, and Skyward. Obviously, I have a couple of Brandon Sanderson books left on my list I found Brandon Sanderson books by my brothers and my dad. They kept ranting about them at the dinner table, so I decided to give them a try. It took a while to get into The Way of Kings at first; the length made it hard to start. As soon as I got into it though, I knew I had to read all of his books! My favorite characters from The Stormlight Archive would probably have to be Wit, Kaladin, or Lift (along with their individual spren); although my favorite right now is Renarin! My favorite character from Mistborn is probably Kelsier (still), and/or Elend. Anyway...Hi!
  22. Well, hello 17th shard. I'll guess that by joining this forums I'm formalizing my transformation from a casual Sanderson Reader to a fully invested Cosmere explorer. Is there something in particular that I should be sharing here? Well, for a start, I'm from Argentina and I've read a few of Sanderson's books, those being: Stormlight Archive books 1 & 2; Mistborn era one, and I'm now a few pages into both "The eleventh metal" short story and "Alloy of Law" from era two; and the last works I've gotten to read were "Elantris" and "The Emperors Soul" Now that I'm on vacations I intend to go dive deeply into all Cosmere stuff. So you will hopefully see me around!
  23. I'm just another passing through this part of the internet. I prefer the audiobooks but find them excellent. I have currently read Through Oathbringer in the SLA I need to read bands of morning on the mistborne series. and I'm currently ticking through Elantris Nothing special
  24. So I finally got my copy of Skyward from the US today, and as per, I will always ask Brandon for some information about a shard we haven't seen yet, and he gave me the following info this year... I have two possible ideas with this, feel free to pick at them though! 1) Brandon is referencing Bavadin, and possibly suggesting that there are six separate entities or aspects to Autonomy 2) It's the eyes, nostrils and front fangs of a Dragon SPECULATE!
  25. Can someone who knows what they're talking about give me a summary of Hoid's story that we know so far? I've read Mistborn Eras 1&2, Stormlight, Elantris, Edgedancer, Mistborn: Secret History, The Hope of Elantris, and The Eleventh Metal. I plan to read the rest of Ars Arcanum, the Rithmatist and Warbreaker in the next few weeks. I just want to be able to participate in more Hoid discussions. I'm still fairly new to all this stuff and getting an answer from someone will be faster than searching out all the answers on here.
