  1. Hey y'all Wildcard here, I'm just gonna post this here because this is the one place that would appreciate my take on what a skymark looks like.
  2. Im wondering if anyone knows if Brandon calls out specific gem cut styles when describing gems for Sphere and fabrials. It seems likely specific cuts are better then others rather than it being an arbitrary detail. Coppermind only says that cut gems hold more stormlight somehow. Hopefully this question doesn't Rafo'd or something.
  3. I remember someone saying that Roshar would be a convenient place for vegans with all their soulcast food. Of course that's not the case because, correct me if I'm wrong, soulcasters use gemhearts to soulcast the food and gemhearts come from animals. Their counter was that they could simply use spheres to soulcast the food. I don't recall it ever being mentioned that Rosharians would mine for gemstones or that mined gems on Roshar hold stormlight. So do all the gemstones in spheres come from gemhearts?
  4. Do we have any info on the size of spheres? I always imagine them as being ping-pong ball size, but it seems that they would be smaller, like marbles or so. Thanks in advance!
  5. From the album Spheres

    These spheres have diamonds, sapphires, and rubies suspended in them.
  6. Hi, I'm planning on making some sphere replicas, so I would love some people's help on how exactly they should look. Should the spheres be completely spherical, or are they actually flat on one side so you can put them down without them rolling away? Would the gemstones in the middle be cut precisely, like in the 'typical' (cartoonish) diamond shape, or would they be cut kind of roughly and in any kind of crystal-like shape? Would they be transparent or opaque (excluding clearmarks in that question)?
  7. From the album Spheres

    These spheres cracked during the cooling process....
  8. I don't think this information has come out before, but I accidentally got Peter to own up to the canon carat values for spheres. Broam: 2 carat Mark: .5 carat Chip: .1 carat
  9. I'm prob way off, but I always imagined them looking like Rupees from the Zelda series. When they became dun, I always just imagined with as looking like clear glass, maybe a little murky?
  10. From the album Stormlight Art of Carbonationspren

    Here is my depiction of the Double Eye, with the glyphs for the Knights Radiant orders. Created with the Cycles rendering engine.

  11. During my most recent reread I noticed this. Why are there only 9 types of spheres vs. 10? Which gem is missing? Thoughts? I have noted diamond, emerald, amethyst, and garnet so far. @Duncan noted zirconium and ruby. Coppermind says it is heliodor or smokestone missing....anyone doing rereads please watch for those with me.
  12. Detail Process Young Kaladin is based on my "Kid Kal" character design:
  13. NOTE: Please DON'T spoil Shadows of Self, Emperor's Soul, Bands of Mourning, Secret Histories, Hope of Elantris, Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell. Also, I deeply apologize in advance if this has been posted before. Also, there are spoilers from Mistborn 1, 2, 3, The Way of Kings and Words of Radiance. . . . . . . . . . So, I'm reading Sixth of The Dusk and a thought occurs to me: "Hey, aren't Sak and Kokerlii like.... metals?" We know that Allomancy doesn't need metals as the source of power, but rather as a catalyst. So, I'm thinking... Maybe, in this world (which btw, reminds me of TSA, mostly the Reshi Isles part where Rysn goes in WoR), instead of metals, these Aviars are the catalysts. I mean, Sak's power is like burning atium, but it only shows warnings and Kokerlii's is like burning copper. Except, Kokerlii shields minds instead of Allomancy. This is obviously related to the Cognitive Realm. What if Allomancy just works differently here? Like how Lift can convert food into Stormlight.
