  1. Based on what was reviled in sun lit man here is my best guess at Nomad's story post RoW. 1. The unite dawnshard is found and hoid convinces Sigzil to take it up and take it off world. 2. The dawnshard alters both his and his Spren's spirit web this unlocks new powers but brings the torment. 3. He gives up the dawn shard 4. The night brigade starts helping him. 5. Nomad loses faith in his ideals as a result his Spren dies. 6. The event of sun lit man If I missed anything or you have a alternative time line let's discuss.
  2. There are a number of theories floating around about who/what Aux is. We know a couple of things for sure: Auxiliary claims to be dead Auxiliary is referred to as a spren Auxiliary acts as a living shardblade by changing shape Auxiliary is probably not a bonded cognitive shadow of a dead knight radiant (WOB) Auxiliary refers to himself as knight and Nomad as a squire Auxiliary can absorb and then use multiple types of investiture Auxiliary can manipulate spirit webs with what looks like Spiritual Adhesion Auxiliary can initiate a Skip to transport Sigzil, assuming he has enough investiture Before I really get started, there is a WOB that is brought up frequently in these discussions: I think the intentionality refers to the clause "at one point", as in Sigzil held the dawnshard prior to this book but after SA4. And there is no additional implication. We know that Sigzil no longer has the Dawnshard: " An after-effect of the burden he’d once carried, the thing that had given him his Torment." This is important, because it means that all the abilities Aux shows are innate as are Sigzil's. As a couple of other posts have deduced, Bondsmith surges seem very similar to Aux's abilities. Spiritual Adhesion to allow Connection between Nomad and the planet and between Nomad and Hoid. Aux can also fuel Skipping, which seems similar to how Dalinar summons perpendicularity, though Brandon did confirm that skipping doesn't require the use of a perpendicularity. So, I propose that sometime before SP4, a new Bondsmith was added to the order. We are led to believe it is possible in Words of Radiance, in Epigraph 44. The name itself is most reminiscent of the unique spren that Bondsmiths bond. Auxiliary as in "a person or thing providing supplementary or additional help and support." Makes sense that if a new bondsmith was created, that it would because help was needed. Even Sibling was created with the specific purpose to oppose Odium. Why not a 4th in the most desperate times? Not sure who would bond Aux but maybe someone we have not met. Now, Auxiliary claims to be dead. When a radiant abandons the oaths, the spren turns deadeye, and deadeyes are not vocal like Aux. So what happened? There is a WOB that might shed a little light. So, what happens to a spren that has completely melded into one with their radiant if that radiant dies or forswears? Could the mind of the radiant persist as a sub personality of the spren while the spren gains the ability to manifest without an additional bond (given that they are still basically bonded to the dead knight)? The knight's mind and the spren's body. If this is true, it would explain the odd third person dialog from Aux. It would also explain why he refers to himself as a knight. But why is Nomad a squire? He was a knight radiant last we heard, a windrunner. We do know that Bondmiths have squires: Well, maybe Sigzil, being apart of the Bondsmith's retinue qualified him to being both a squire and a knight, at least in Aux's mind. Now, what about Nomad's lack of oaths, oaths ended and forgotten. Oath's that were suppose to override part of the Torment. Lets say that Wit convinces or tricks Sigzil into picking up the Dawnshard while still bonded to his Honor spren. We know that it could cause problems and that something did/is happening with his spren because of the Dawnshard So we know that having a bond with a spren means that their essence is filling in cracks in the spirit web. Holding a Dawnshard does the same thing. What happens when those two forces start overfilling the cracks or even worse, fighting over the space. I cannot imagine anything good for the Radiant or the spren. So Sigzil and his spren mutually decide to end the bond. But, that time while being bonded and holding the Dawnshard has greatly increased his Torment. So, now lacking a blade of his own, Sigzil and Aux (now the semi-deadeye) teamup and the resonance between Aux's surges and Sigzil's investment from being a Dawnshard for a time, allow for skipping.
  3. My wait for Sigzil to have a larger role in the series continues. I had believed that with him taking charge of the Windrunners and Kaladin being benched that we would finally get to spend more time with Sigzil but no, that didnt happen at all. We still don't know how and why he became a Worldsinger or who he tried to murder. We haven't even seen any interaction between Sigzil and Wit even though theyre right there together. Well, 6 books to go.....maybe Sigzil is a character queued up for those other books or maybe his tile and connection to Wit are meaningless and were introduced for no reason. Any other Sigzil fans out there left wanting more? Side note: I wonder if he's now wearing a longcoat like Kaladin instead of his standard uniform.
  4. This is really just a discussion for everyone to add their ideas onto, but to get it started off: Whether a member dies while fighting the fused, a freak accident, or while protecting someone else, the most likely candidates for who I think will kick the bucket in Bridge 4 would have to be Lopen, Rock, and Teft. While I don't necessarily think they'll have to die in order for Kaladin to swear the 4th ideal, I do think their deaths could be his breaking point. And if there's anything that Sanderson likes to do with characters, it's break them. After working so hard to protect Bridge 4 and essentially bring them out of the trenches, it would tear Kaladin apart to see one of them die- or even get injured as we saw in Words of Radiance with Hobber. So while that's true, the most impactful deaths for the reader would be a character that we've been the given the chance to get to know. And so that brings my first candidate, Lopen. I have to say that he is the most probable character for me as of now. Lopen is sort of like a class-clown in Bridge 4 in that he tends to mess and joke around much more than the others, and so it would come as a shock to the readers to suddenly have him cut down and die, leaving a hole in Bridge 4. Without Lopen, they'd be out of a serious need for laughter and light-heartedness and anyone who knows Bridge 4's story knows that that's something they desperately need. Next up is Rock, but I will admit that I don't think Sanderson will kill Rock- at least not in the first half of the books. The biggest reason he just made my list is because of how much it would hurt the readers. Rock has been a big figure in Bridge 4 since the beginning, and with just that it would make his death heartbreaking. But adding on to how we were able to meet his family in Oathbringer and seeing just how much he cares about everyone around him with the chapters from his point-of-view, the readers would definitely be in tears. Add on the possibility of him dying while trying to tell Kaladin about the Horneater Peaks (of which he always told Kaladin he'd bring him to) and Sanderson has a whole fanbase weeping. Now is the time for Teft. Teft's death seems both logical and inevitable to me. He served as a friend and leader to Bridge 4 and was a major reason for them getting as strong as they currently are with him helping to train them. The only person to play a bigger role in the rehabilitation of Bridge 4 is Kaladin, and Kaladin himself holds high respect for Teft. Bottom line, his death would be devastating to the moral of Bridge 4. Without Teft, I'm not entirely sure how Bridge 4 would carry on. Everything they would do would remind them that Teft isn't there as it was Teft who helped to train them with the spear, first told them of the Radiant powers with Kaladin, and essentially acted as a grumpy uncle. That's all from me. Tell me what you guys think! How would the other members react to one of their own dying? What would it mean for the story? HOW do you think they'd die?
  5. Hello everyone! We are a nerd podcast about the deeper meanings, messages, and intricacies hidden within nerd culture. We talk about Brandon/ Cosmere stuff about once a month! My question is do you think the correct term is Worldsingers or worldbringers? Are they the same? What’s the difference? And also, how old would you place Hoid as being? Also, if you want, we’re on YouTube and SoundCloud, so give us a listen! WE WOULD LOVE TO KNOW WHAT IN THE COSMERE / BRANDERSON UNIVERSE YOU WOULD LIKE US TO DELVE DEEPER INTO!
  6. The question is there in the title. Was i the only one who read chapter 8 and thought "this looks like a job for Sigzil!?" Seriously, the dude is a Worldsinger and can speak in detail concerning the customs, policies, and and governing bodies of each major nation. He's also, seemingly, well traveled and could even speak from experience. It seems a waste for him to be searching tunnels.
  7. Aren't they so ADORABLE? Don't you just wanna hug one of them?(though you shouldn't hug Moash, he might stab you with his spear)
  8. Hey everyone, I'm new to the forums, and am a big fan of the Cosmere novels. Particularly the Stormlight Archive, and after going through The Way of Kings a few times I found a question that I couldn't answer. I did a quick search in the forums and couldn't find anything, although I'd dare say it's likely that I didn't look thoroughly enough, so I apologize if this has already been discussed. Anyway, on to the question! In the chapter Eyes of Red and Blue in the first book of the series Sigzil calls our favorite Radiant (or at least mine) "Kaladin Stormblessed" which is the same name he had when he was in Amaram's army. It seems like an odd coincidence that Sigzil would give Kaladin the same nickname that he had before as nobody in bridge 4 ever talked about their past. I suppose it is possible that the nickname is at least a semi-common thing to call someone in Roshar given the nature of the planet. It's commonality seems less likely to me after reading through the 2nd book in which Kaladin is referred to as "Stormblessed" on multiple occasions, as though it were becoming his surname. I don't suppose anyone knows the answer to this or has any thoughts on it?
  9. I decided today, after weeks of thinking on it, that Sigzil is a Terrisman worldhopper. I'll just throw my thoughts out here quickly. - Sigzil is Hoid's apprentice. Hoid is a known worldhopper. - Sigzil's name is very close to another Terrisman we are familiar with. Hint: it is Sazed. I don't recall there being any rules on Terrisman names being similar, but it is noticeable, so I stuck it on. I think they also have a similar skin tone. - Sigzil displays (what I believe to be) Terris-like behavior as he is one of very few bridgemen who was fully clean shaven even before Rock had his razor. It's not great evidence, but the fact that Brandon goes out of his way to single out Sigzil in that makes me feel like it is on purpose. - Sigzil clearly has a hunger for knowldege. We know him to be a "Worldsinger" and have an understanding for many many Rosharan cultures and locations. There is also the scene when Kaladin is explaining what he can do with Stormlight where Sigzil spouts of around 8 questions rapid fire - very scholarly details that would be more like specific measurements than any of the others probably care to know (in context the others are asking him if he can fly, and Sigzil wants to know measurements on the things Kaladin has already said, like how long bonds hold). Maybe the most important to me: -Sigzil's voice in the audiobook, voiced by Michael Kramer, is identical to Kramer's Terrisman voice. I know it is going to be a big series and he will have to reuse several voices, but it is identical. Like, sometimes I think Sazed is speaking. That won't sound like much to many people, but Kramer also used Sazed's voice Sazed's notes at the start of each Mistborn HoA chapter. In all honesty, it ruined the surprise for me a tad, which I'm fine with, but it does show that he is willing to use the proper accent even if it is telling. I think Brandon told him to use a Terris accent for Sigzil on purpose. I could use some help on this theory if anyone has any proof of any of those similarities or anything that goes against them. It's something that has been on my mind personally but I haven't done a ton of research on.
  10. I suspect that Sigzil might be a Allomancer. In WoR ch.71, Teft along with Sigzil was doing nightwatch and waiting for Kaladin to make a comeback from chasms. And Teft kept talking about Envisagers and his past. But it's... kinda strange. Quote two paragraphs here: Sigzil seems to let Teft tell a lot unknowingly... is it just my overthinking, or he's actually burning Brass to let Teft speak? He was asking Teft something in the beginning of the chapter, so he does have a motivation---but that's not the topic here. We all know his mentor was Hoid. What if Hoid, accidentally or deliberately, made him become a Allomancer? Extra: We also recognized Nahel Bond. But have anyone thought about Who the hell Nahel is? What do you think?
  11. I was re-reading both WoK and WoR and started to wonder about Sigzil. We know that Sigzil is definitely native to Roshar and that he is a trained Worldsinger. This is interesting in itself, but we have to remember that he was trained by Hoid/Wit. Given that, exactly how much does Sigzil know about what is going on in the Cosmere? Does he know about Odium, about Hoid's plan and the other worlds? About what is going on with Kaladin? There are places in WoK (I can't recall exactly where at the moment) where Sigzil looks at Kaladin or says something to him and seems to know A LOT more than he is letting on. Hoid is a very enigmatic character that is hard to get to know, and I think that Sanderson might be setting Sigzil up as our means of getting to know him--and his motives--better. What do you all think?
