  1. Here we go again. I've found a way to copy over the old Geo Tracking Map to my new one, which I can edit. I'll also try and find a way to make some other people moderators of the map, to keep it updated in case something happens and I forget about it. Anyhow, I talk too much. Linky. (Please note: The original map I borrowed was updated more than a year ago. Many of the newer members will not be here.) List of Sharders by Country/ Continent will be upcoming whenever I can be bothered. Please, tell me who I've missed. (Especially tell me if you want admin rights.) Restriction to be on the map: You must have at least 10 posts and have been around at least 1 fortnight. Otherwise, we'll have a heap of people nobody's heard of. Sorry. Admins to the map: The Young Bard (PM me if you have any problems) Honor Spren Curious Anaximder (formerly Venture Mistborn) Darkness Ascendant Bleeder ccstat
  2. I was frying up some potatoes and I got to thinking, as I am sometime prone to do. Wouldn't it be interesting to see a Radiant/Spren relationship where the spren is the one who needs to develop and say different oaths? Or maybe it wouldn't be. I have to go. I can hear my potatoes starting to sizzle and I still need to cut the onion.
  3. What jobs do you think the characters of the Mistborn series would have if they were in modern day society? Discounting how their personalities would have been different growing up in our world.
  4. This is where you dump all of the random thoughts and ideas you get on a random basis. Why? Who knows.
  5. Just talk to people and whatever you want…
  6. What should my signature's name be?
  7. Lizzi wrote her name on her homework assignment, using the same character for all five letters. It looked like an uppercase cursive L, a fancy I, and a stylized Z all at the same time. Then she thought about how the person who made her up named her “Lizzi” for the very reason of the same-character spelling.
  8. Well I made an AMA twice and they were moderately succesful, but I think that it is time that I followed the emerging trend of advice threads. Thank you to all who paved the way @I Am A Fish @Condensation @Scarletfox. It's time that I used my knowledge for good. Ask for advice in writing, life, love, or anything else really. (Customer Satisfaction Not Guaranteed.)
  9. I just got an idea for a thread. Random and pointless questions we have for Mistborn Era 3. Such as: Will there be Rubik's cubes in Era 3?
  10. This is just a random tangent, that randomly popped into my head while I was thinking of Investiture, and Star Wars. So, in Star Wars, black holes are seen as a hole in the force, a place of pure death. This makes me think, what would black holes appear as to highly Invested people, sentient Invested objects (i.e. Nightblood), or pieces of Investiture (i.e. a Spren)? Would they be a hole in the Cosmere to them, void of Investiture? This was just a random tangent I went off on in my mind.
  11. George Lucas Open on Kaladin, staring out at the battlefield. It is littered with both soldiers and Parshendi corpses. He stands alone in his vest and trousers, an unreadable expression on his face. KALADIN: Dead. All of them….dead. Half of Bridge Four is gone, because of me. Sylphrena floats up to him, a ribbon of light, before assuming the form of a young girl. SYL: Not-so, Mistah Kaladeen, sah! You-sa still have meesa! KALADIN: Uh, Syl? Why are you talking like that? You didn't talk like that in the last book. SYL: Mistah Lucas thought it'd be better for the KIDS! You-sa knows he loves dee children! KALADIN: Excuse me, Syl. SYL: Where-sa you-sa going, Kaladeen? KALADIN: To find the nearest chasm. J.K. Rowling Dalinarbledore gripped Kaladin's shoulders, meeting his eyes. "Don't you see, Kaladin? You are the Chosen One. Of all the Radiants at this school, you alone can unite the Sprenly Hallows and defeat Voidemort!" Kaladin looked away from Dalinarbledore's eyes, which always made him feel as though he were being X-rayed. "But….this doesn't make sense." "Of course it does. Voidemort chose you as his equal, which is why you can fly and do all of those amazing things." "But wouldn't I have been able to do that anyway, being a Windrunner and all? And while we're at it, why did I get Windrunning while Shalmione got Lightweaving? I mean, seriously, why are there differences in our magic, anyway?" "Because it's magic. Duh." Just then, Professor Sadeas walked by, scowling at Dalinarbledore. "You're smiling, Professor. Ten points from Gryffindor." "I outrank you, Sadeas." "Fine. Ten points to Slytherin, because I have better fashion sense." George R. R. Martin Sigzil stood alone on the battlefield. Around him lay the broken bodies of Bridge Four, Dalinar's warcamp, Sebarial's warcamp, and the entire customer base of a random tavern. "Looks like it falls upon me, then," he sighed. "I alone must carry this narrative to the end. And I shall. I shall." The arrow struck his heart from an unknown source, and there he died. Stephanie Meyer Pattern buzzed in deep chagrin. "Shallan?" "What?" "I know that your sketches are important….but shouldn't you be working on keeping the parshmen from destroying the world?" "In a minute," she said, chagrined. "Shallan, you have already made 499 sketches of Adolin Kholin's abdominal muscles." "And this will be an even 500." Just as she finished the sketch and held it to the light for a moment's admiration, the door swung open. Her chagrin was quickly replaced by delight. "Shallan," Kaladin breathed. "I'm sorry for intruding on you like this, but I had to see you. I didn't have time to put on a shirt. I hope you don't mind." Pattern's chagrined buzzing began anew, but Shallan ignored it. When the Almighty sent you a shirtless Captain, you didn't ask for details.
  12. I was incredibly bored one day, and I just decided to make a bunch of these... Warning: cringey-ness below. Awful puns and terrible references follow this message. Viewer discretion is advised. Reckoners: Elantris: Warbreaker: Stormlight Archive: Rithmatist: Emperor’s Soul: Mistborn— Secret History: Mistborn: Perfect State: General Sanderson: Again, I was incredibly bored. Feel free to use them if you need... Anyone have any others?

  14. Hey everyone! Here's how this works, someone puts a trivia question (from any book series, or general Brandon trivia) into the thread (make sure to tag spoilers) The next person answers that question, and puts up a new question. Let me start us off: What is Shallan Davar's last name?
  15. I'm just curious. I wanted to see whether Brandon's books were more likely to be read by a certain religion. P.S. I did put cosmereism there as a joke. If you're okay with sharing, then I would much rather you answer truthfully.
  16. Inspired by the useless uses for useful powers thread, I decided to create this. The goal is to think of some horrible side effect of using a Cosmere power. For instance: Burning tin right before someone rips a big fart. Ewwwwww Or: Tapping pewter and accidentally breaking out of your clothes (in public) Try thinking of more!
  17. SO. this is what you do... go to 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.
  18. Have you ever written a couple lines- in a story or just random inspiration- that you're very proud of? Showcase them here! Here's one I'm rather proud of, though I suppose it sounds strange out of context: "Ali knows the signs. The certain smell. The horrible sense of quiet, followed by the sound of something breaking." Anyone have some beautiful lines they'd like to share? I'd love to read them!
  19. I guess I have been on here long enough to start of of these now. So ask me anything.
  20. At my brother's suggestion, I thought it would be fun to enter a bunch of Sharders' names into Google Images and post the first image that comes up.

  21. Ban Dihydrogen Monoxide! The Invisible Killer Dihydrogen monoxide is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and kills uncounted thousands of people every year. Most of these deaths are caused by accidental inhalation of DHMO, but the dangers of dihydrogen monoxide do not end there. Prolonged exposure to its solid form causes severe tissue damage. Symptoms of DHMO ingestion can include excessive sweating and urination, and possibly a bloated feeling, nausea, vomiting and body electrolyte imbalance. For those who have become dependent, DHMO withdrawal means certain death. Dihydrogen monoxide: is also known as hydroxyl acid, and is the major component of acid rain. contributes to the "greenhouse effect." may cause severe burns. contributes to the erosion of our natural landscape. accelerates corrosion and rusting of many metals. may cause electrical failures and decreased effectiveness of automobile brakes. has been found in excised tumors of terminal cancer patients. Contamination Is Reaching Epidemic Proportions! Quantities of dihydrogen monoxide have been found in almost every stream, lake, and reservoir in America today. But the pollution is global, and the contaminant has even been found in Antarctic ice. DHMO has caused millions of dollars of property damage in the midwest, and recently California. Despite the danger, dihydrogen monoxide is often used: as an industrial solvent and coolant. in nuclear power plants. in the production of styrofoam. as a fire retardant. in many forms of cruel animal research. in the distribution of pesticides. Even after washing, produce remains contaminated by this chemical. as an additive in certain "junk-foods" and other food products. Companies dump waste DHMO into rivers and the ocean, and nothing can be done to stop them because this practice is still legal. The impact on wildlife is extreme, and we cannot afford to ignore it any longer! The Horror Must Be Stopped! The American government has refused to ban the production, distribution, or use of this damaging chemical due to its "importance to the economic health of this nation." In fact, the navy and other military organizations are conducting experiments with DHMO, and designing multi-billion dollar devices to control and utilize it during warfare situations. Hundreds of military research facilities receive tons of it through a highly sophisticated underground distribution network. Many store large quantities for later use. Call your Congressman/woman or Senator today!
  22. As per Kobolds suggestion, I'm giving a brand new random home for all the random stuff out there.
  23. This is the thread for all of your ideas/funny stories/jokes/etc. that you don't feel like deserve a whole new topic all to themselves. I'll start: Has anyone else here had Dole pineapple whip? It is AMAZING.
  24. Can we get a Thingie that when you press it, just links you to a Random Topic in the Forums? Except for Subforums that are Spoilery, like WoR Forum is now.
