  1. Pretty simple question here; could you use raysium to fill a gemstone with investiture from a perpendicularity? Seems like you'd have a lot of portable, easy to access investiture if you could, especially if you're not on Roshar.
  2. What happens if someone sits around in a Perpendicularity for an extended period of time? Would it begin to expand and permeate them as it did Kelsier when he sat in the Well of Ascension? What if it is a Perpendicularity that holds investiture that the person isn’t Connected to? For example, if a Scadrian traveled over to Patji and soaked in that Perpendicularity, would it have a different effect for them than soaking in Harmony’s Perpendicularity? Would you eventually become Connected to the investiture by virtue of you Spiritweb being familiar with it?
  3. If someone from Scadrial were to take an aluminum syringe and inject the liquid from Harmony’s Perpendicularity into their body, would they get Allomantic powers? Would it do nothing for them if they didn’t already have powers to use the investiture?
  4. Something I noticed about every natural ”Shardpool” perpendicularity: (meaning every perpendicularity that was not placed or moved) They are ALL in the mountains. On Roshar: Cultivation’s perpendicularity is in the Horneater peaks. On Sel: the only Shardpool we see is up in the Aonic mountains. On First of the sun: Patji’s eye, at the very top of the Island. On Scadrial: During Alendi’s time, Both the Well of Ascension and Ruin’s Shardpool (the dark lake that someone tried to take a sample of, but was stabbed by the Mist Spirit.) During Era 1, the Well was placed intentionally placed in Luthadel. The Pits of Hathsin, I think might have also been intentionally placed, and they aren’t really a “Shardpool.” I also don’t have a very intimate knowledge of the geography around the Pits, so I don’t know if they are in a terrain that could be called “mountainous.” (All that to say I don’t know whether or not it counts.) During Era 2, the perpendicularity is the blue mountain spring that is mentioned in the Broadsheets. On Nalthis and Taldain, we haven’t seen the perpendicularity, but we also haven’t seen any long walks through the mountains... Anybody else notice this pattern, or have any idea as to why that is?
  5. Let's talk about spheres. (This post assumes you've read chapters 4 and 5 of the Oathbringer preview.) From the chasm scene in WoR, we know that spheres recharge during highstorms, specifically at the moment when the Stormfather appears with his odd timelessness. But we just saw the Stormfather appear like that at the wedding, and he doesn't bring stormlight so it isn't him causing the recharge. The evidence points to sphere infusion being a specific effect of Honor's perpendicularity, which we have good reason to think travels with the highstorm. In addition, we have confirmation now that the Everstorm doesn't charge spheres with either stormlight or voidlight. We can assume then that the Everstorm does not carry a perpendicularity with it. So now I have three questions: If you took a sphere to/through Cultivation's perpendicularity in the Horneater peaks, would it infuse? If so, would it contain regular stormlight or a different flavor of investiture? i.e. Does Cultivation's investiture manifest as stormlight? How confident are we that Gavilar's sphere contained investiture from Odium? The first Szeth interlude in WoK features a (very unreliable) tavern tale in which a similar sphere is stolen from the Nightwatcher. For the record, I still think it's 98% likely to be from Odium, but I want to float alternatives for discussion. Where did Gavilar's "voidlight" come from? Until shown evidence otherwise, I'm going to believe that Rayse doesn't have a perpendicularity on Roshar. But then we need an avenue to get his investiture into a sphere. Let's pull some hints together, getting us to my current theory: We've seen surgebinders infuse things (including gems) with the stormlight they held inside them. We've seen Lift get stormlight from a route other than inhaling. We also know from WoB that Honor powered the Heralds directly, without them needing to inhale stormlight. We've seen magically enhanced strength and speed from people feeling the Thrill (i.e. influenced by an Unmade), which mirrors some of the passive effects of holding stormlight. I propose that someone feeling the Thrill (or accessing another of the Unmade's powers) could learn to take that Odious investiture and infuse it into something else, and that is how Gavilar did it.
  6. From WoK Epilogue: Kholinar on the map: Interesting, no? Why did Taln come back from Braize near the largest city in the area, or near Kholinar, and why was he wet? We have no mention of being wet when Jasnah elsecalls, no? Could he be have swum in through a shardpool or something? Tell me, yah?
