  1. We now know kelsier no longer has his mistborn powers and when he went to Southern Scadrial it was only like 10 years after the catacendere meaning spook would still be alive, so with kelsier not being able to charge them himself and spook being a full mistborn we know he was working with, I think spook might have been the one to supply the powers.
  2. Even Telsin mentions about Harmony becoming Discord like capital in one of her lines. Ohhh boy Scadrial is gonna in fun times. Also the epigraph saying so much irony of Discord is gonna helluvah interesting this is how you end an era with a big question Thoughts ? Theories ?
  3. The Overlord and Overlady are BACK at it again and this time they are reading the correct book this time!
  4. These alomancy grenades are suuuper cool. They add a whole different dimension to abilities but there's a few edge cases where I'm kind of unsure as to what the result would be, like tin and pewter? they'd just make everyone inside be tineye's and pewterarms for duration? this is probably a headache which Brandon is trying to figure out atm (unless he already had to sit down and really think about it). But what's interesting about these grenades is how they erase Intent (or maybe it would be more accurate to say Command) because anyone can use them and they work on general not specific things. I also wanted to add if these things could be done for things outside the metallic arts but I find it difficult again because of lack of Intent or Command. Unless you can also store certain Intents or Commands like a Lightweaver illusion or a gravitational pull in all directions.
  5. Kels epilogue shows he no longer has Allomancy, Hemelergy doesn't work as he knows it outside of helping him reach the physical realm. This also insinuates the medallion system doesn't work for him. Hence the naming of the Bands.. he's mourning his loss of Allomancy.. another "failed" experiment.
  6. If eating lerasium makes you a mistborn, could eating harmonium make you a feruchemist? Allomancy is considered to be of Preservation, since it is an end-positive art. Feruchemy is of Harmony, since it is an end-neutral art. Therefore, it makes sense that Preservation's metal, lerasium, makes people allomancers, and it makes sense that Harmonium would make people feruchemists. Of course, on this logic, it would seem that consuming atium should make you a hemalurgist, which it doesn't. But I don't think that proves me wrong, because hemalurgy isn't a biological part of anyone, whereas allomancy and feruchemy are.
  7. Wax's explanation for why Wayne doesn't need forgiveness (because Wayne isn't the same man, the man who needed forgiveness is dead) is a common Jewish explanation for how people who have done wrong can end up justified before God. At least, that's my understanding of a Jewish explanation. Wonder if Brandon and/or the Latter Day Saints believe it. I really want more TwinSoul. That guy is hardcore, and his Aether is amazing. I want more Aether stuff too. I think Wayne is probably smarter than Wax. Didn't he say he never went to school? If so, I wonder how he learned to read. Scadrial has been the world being ruled by a sane, ethical Shard/Vessel. Ok, maybe Nalthis is too. Anyway, I fear Sazed's days are numbered. Soon he will likely be consumed by conflicting Intents or murdered. Hope I'm wrong. Marasi and Shallan and the Ghostbloods... Women being tempted by forbidden knowledge? Wonder where Brandon got that idea? Just kidding. I don't know if he was thinking about it, but Eve was tempted by the serpent to eat the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. And greek mythology has Pandora succumbing to her curiosity and opening the box. Both ended up half-ruining the world. So far, Brandon's ladies have done better. Why did Wax end up spiked? What did I miss? Sorry for the stupid question. Other stupid question: Is Wax a full Mistborn now or not? I really like Steris. I'm not sure I've ever read a character like her, but I identify with her. I've been diagnosed with "autistic traits," whatever that means, and I often felt like people considered me a pharisee or a self-satisfied stick-in-the-mud or something. I wasn't sure what I was supposed to have done wrong. Maybe I was imagining things, or maybe I actually did something wrong. But it's really gratifying to see a character like Steris. I feel the same about Hraethen in Elantris, in the way he came to accept that he believed for rational reasons and that was enough. Maybe I'm not quite like him in that regard, but I know what it likes to feel judged for not being emotive enough. Like people think you're cold and artificial or something. I feel like Brandon has one or two other characters I felt similarly about. Characters I'd never read the likes of, that I identified with. Hoid had nahel bonded his spren before this story, right? I didn't notice any sign of her, did you?
  8. I can't find the exact page but in the Lost Metal, Kelsier said that only 3 of the original crew remained. I believe he was referring to himself, Marsh and Sazed. So I guess that would mean that Spook is actually dead and not simply in hiding in the background like Kelsier and Marsh. But this leads to many questions. Did he die from old age? He abdicated from the throne when he was over 100 years old, he had to have had some access to Atium Compounding. Maybe Marsh shared few beads with him. So old age being his cause of death is a lower possibility in my eyes. What did he do after he left? Did he Worldhop or work with Kelsier more closely? Any thoughts?
  9. At least in some parts of the world, The Lost Metal, the fourth and final book of Mistborn Era 2, is now out! It's midnight GMT, so that means at least Asia, Oceania, and Europe should have the book by now. Of course, ebooks and audiobooks can appear at different times, so Americans will need to wait a bit longer, potentially, but regardless, very soon the Lost Metal will no longer be lost. Hooray! Importantly, at this time, spoilers are now allowed in the Spoiler forums, as well as the Lost Metal spoiler channels on Discord, so spoilers can be there untagged, so beware! Spoilers outside those zones must be tagged. The Coppermind Wiki could potentially have spoilers as well now. We'll have to see how much Lost Metal editing there will be in the next little bit, but if you want to see the version of the wiki prior to release (and thus, containing no Lost Metal spoilers), please use the Time Machine! And of course, if you haven't bought The Lost Metal yet, you can buy it on a variety of places, such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. For fans of Shardcast and the 17th Shard YouTube channel, we'll have our first Lost Metal Reactions episode out this weekend!
  10. In this final episode of The Lost Previews, we discuss chapters 16 to 18! We can't wait for the release next week! 00:00 Introductions 01:00 Chapter 16 11:25 Chapter 17 21:45 Chapter 18 34:10 Scadrian Numerals Chapters 16 to 18 on Tor.com: https://www.tor.com/2022/11/07/read-the-lost-metal-by-brandon-sanderson-chapters-sixteen-through-eighteen/ Thumbnail art is by Elisgardor: https://coppermind.net/wiki/File:Wax_and_Steris_finances_by_Elisgardor.jpg If you like our content, support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/17thshard For discussion, theories, games, and news, come to https://www.17thshard.com Come talk with us and the community on the 17th Shard Discord: https://discord.gg/17thshard Want to learn more about the cosmere and more?

  11. The Lost Metal, the fourth and final book of Mistborn Era 2, is finally here. It's been eleven years since the first one of these--the Alloy of law--came out in 2011, so we've been waiting quite a while. There's tons of ground for this book to cover, both in wrapping up Era 2 and setting up Mistborn Era 3, and this is definitely the longest of the Era 2 books by far. So how did it go? I think The Lost Metal was a pretty good conclusion, but this book didn't quite come together as well as Shadows of Self or The Bands of Mourning for me. I'd say this book has a lot of pieces that are extremely awesome, and while the book is good, overall the whole is less than the sum of its parts. I think ultimately the problem is the overall plot for the book. It's not as interesting, conceptually, as what we got in Shadows of Self or Bands of Mourning, and doesn't totally come together. One of the plotlines for half the book feels a bit like it is spinning its wheels until we get to the epic conclusion (which at least is awesome). There's a lot of running around and investigating, and it is not as interesting as you might hope. It doesn't help that that plotline has two new antagonists which, frankly, I just do not like the character concepts for. Those antagonists are a disappointment for a final book when I felt like we could have gotten a lot more cool stuff. Something about that plotline did not work for me. By comparison, the other plotline in the book was so much more interesting to me, so that probably didn't help me thinking that things didn't quite gel together. There's one more plotline that has effectively a dead-end for this book that feels like pure setup for Mistborn Era 3, which I really didn't like. I think you could argue that this book is disappointing because it doesn't deal with a few big aspects from prior Era 2 books, presumably to save them for Era 3. This book does deal with the biggest plot thread of the Era 2 series, which is good, but just brace your expectations. The best part of the plot is the ending, which has fantastic moments and has an excellent Brandon avalanche that is tense and thrilling. Of course, I can't speak much to it in a spoiler-free review. It's really exciting. However, I would not say it makes up for some of the other flaws in the book's plotting earlier in the book. The character work for most characters is really great. One character arc in particular I felt was 10/10 and done fantastically. The other characters were done well, too, though not as good as that killer character arc. And as Brandon has said before, Steris gets to do more in this book, which is lovely, though she still gets quite a bit less than Wax, Wayne, and Marasi. One character in the main cast didn't get that much character conflict to work with, but I didn't mind it too much. Overall, I'm pleased with the character endings for Era 2 here; they were quite satisfying. If you are a cosmere fan, well, there is a ton to love in this book. There were WoBs that implied this book would be quite a doozy in that respect, and that is completely accurate. It's really, really spicy. I'm curious if you're a Mistborn-only reader how you'll feel about the end being more cosmere-heavy. I think it's fine overall, but I could very much understand that with this series starting in the "Brandon said stories will be self-contained" timeframe of 2011, this could be a bit jarring. For me personally, I think it's right on the line of acceptability. It's clear to me that as we proceed from now on in the cosmere--especially after Stormlight 5--we're going to get a lot of crossovers very prominently. For what its worth, I think this book does a good job of explaining the crossovers that appear in the book, because the characters are like "hey what is that?" which clues the audience in. Your mileage may vary though. The Lost Metal is a pretty good ending to Mistborn Era 2, and is a fun read. I do think people will have some specific things to complain about and it won't be universally loved. There are things the book didn't do that are some missed opportunities, and the plot didn't come together completely for me. It suffers a bit because it's setting up the next Mistborn eras. But, it does wrap up the things it needs to do to be a satisfying conclusion. There are extremely cool moments, fantastic character work, and some really killer cosmere stuff that we will be talking about for ages. It's pretty good, but not my favorite.

  17. Preview season is upon us! Tor has released the first three chapters of the seventh Mistborn book (and the fourth and final book of the Wax and Wayne subseries), The Lost Metal, and will continue releasing new chapters every Monday at 12PM Eastern Time until the book comes out November 15th. The samples will be posted on Tor's website, and will be posted in both text and audio form, beginning with the prologue and chapters 1 and 2 earlier today. While Brandon has previously done readings of early drafts of these chapters, these are the (near) final versions of what will appear in the book, and chapter 2 is a bit longer, so it may be worth checking out even if you've already watched those. In case you haven't seen it already, here's the back cover blurb: And the cover: When it comes to our site, please limit discussion to the Spoiler Zone forums, where we have both Mistborn-only and full-Cosmere subforums. On our Discord, we similarly have made #tlm-mistborn-only and #tlm-cosmere channels under the new Recent Release Spoilers category, and have moved our #cosmere-mechanics channel there under the new name #tlm-cosmere-mechanics.
  18. Brandon released a video on his channel of him reading TLM chapter 1: youtube link
  19. It's time for an episode we recorded ages ago, long before we even got the blurb for this book: Lost Metal Predictions! The final Wax and Wayne book is finally coming November. Here are our predictions and hopes for the book! Also, so so many mechanical tangents. What can we say, we are excited to talk Mistborn and the mysteries on Scadrial. Today we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), David (Windrunner), Rosemary (Kaymyth), and Matt (Comatose)! We have a cover for The Lost Metal now! Here's the US edition, which we put in the thumbnail: https://www.tor.com/2022/05/26/cover-reveals-the-lost-metal-a-mistborn-novel-by-brandon-sanderson/ We referenced two older episodes in this one: Southern Scadrians - https://youtu.be/qej6ljwWHlE Atium and the Atium Retcon (where we discuss the Preservation switching business) - https://youtu.be/OZxrgxN-HRw 00:00 Introductions 1:23 Biggest Hope and what is the Lost Metal? 9:43 Genre and plotlines 21:39 Harmony and His Sword (& Tangents) 51:04 Kelsier 56:25 The Set 1:07:38 Southerners 1:15:59 Atium 1:24:41 Wax 1:39:02 Wayne 1:58:10 Marasi 2:05:29 Steris 2:15:31 Final Thoughts 2:18:41 Who's That Cosmere Character If you like our content, support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/17thshard For discussion, theories, games, and news, come to https://www.17thshard.com Come talk with us and the community on the 17th Shard Discord: https://discord.gg/17thshard Want to learn more about the cosmere and more?

  20. The official US cover for the fourth Wax and Wayne book is here! The US publisher, Tor, have officially released the cover for The Lost Metal, designed and created by the talented Chris McGrath. This is the second of Brandon’s big publishers to release a cover design, with the UK cover being revealed on May 18th. As a reminder, the book releases November 15th in the UK and US (release dates in other regions and languages vary by publisher). Generally, hardcover, audiobook, and eBook are released at about the same time, and the US paperback a year later. Links to pre-order The Lost Metal from US retailers can be found in the Tor article. In Tor’s announcement, Chris goes into some detail about how he found Brandon’s books and it is equal parts adorable and relatable. Turns out Chris got as sucked in by Mistborn just like the rest of us. Looking to do a Mistborn re-read in preparation for The Lost Metal’s release? Then you should check out our new re-read podcast, Spanreads, and we can all read along together! Currently we’re working through Era 1, but will have Era 2 episodes coming out in a few months time in the run up to release of the last Mistborn book! Spanreads releases on Wednesday’s. Check out our playlist to see all the released episodes! Are you a fan of RPG’s? Do you like Dungeons and Dragons? Big fan of Critical Role and Dimension 20? Why not check out Diceborn, our new Mistborn role playing game! Diceborn is run with the Mistborn Adventure Game rule set produced by Crafty Games, a story driven RPG set in Era 2 Mistborn which follows our five crew members, Dervish (Overlord Jebus), Royce (WeiryWriter), Hallie (Kaymyth), Marelyn (GaterGirl00), and Luca (Comatose). Diceborn releases every second Monday, alternating with Shardcast. Check out the first episode and meet all of our heroes!
  21. Brandon's UK publisher, Gollancz, has officially revealed the UK cover for the finale of the Wax and Wayne series, The Lost Metal! As a reminder, the book releases November 15th in the UK and US (release dates in other regions and languages vary by publisher). Generally, hardcover, audiobook, and eBook are released at about the same time, and paperback a year later. The US cover has not yet been announced by Tor. Cover by Sam Green. (That's the highest quality that's been posted that I could find, sorry.) Additionally, the cover for the rerelease of the second Alcatraz vs the Evil Librarians book, The Scrivener's Bones, has also been revealed! The new edition is expected to come out July 5th. Cover by Justin Gerard. How do you feel these compare to their respective originals? Share your opinions in the comments below!
  22. Chapter 1 and 2 of the Lost Metal was read last November at the Dragonsteel Mini-Con, and was posted online in February. It took a bit to record this episode due to sickness and Brandon's recent bombshell, but enjoy! We don't know when future sample chapters will be coming out, but I imagine this will be our last Lost Previews for a while until sample chapters come in earnest.

  23. We're getting back to some previews for Lost Metal, this time covering Lost Metal's Prologue! We'll also be covering the reading of chapter 1 and 2 later this week, so even though this is a bit of a late one, we thought it'd be weird to not have Danielle and Marvin talk about the prologue as well!

  24. Our preview show with Danielle and Marvin is back, this time talking about The Lost Metal, the fourth Mistborn Era 2 novel that comes out November 15th, 2022! Preview chapters have not begun yet, and we don't know when they will, but we do have an extremely spicy blurb/synopsis for the book, and that's what we're talking about today! Link to the blurb: https://www.tor.com/2021/12/06/book-announcements-the-lost-metal-a-mistborn-novel-from-brandon-sanderson/ A draft of Lost Metal's prologue is out (and apparently Brandon read chapters 1 and 2 at the November Mini-Con, but we don't have the audio for this yet), and you can read the prologue here: https://wob.coppermind.net/events/472/#e14863 The sweet Marasi thumbnail is by Dan Watson and will be in the Alloy leatherbound: https://www.artstation.com/artwork/q9Q0Gn The Waxillium background is also by Dan Watson and will be in the leatherbounds (and animated with permission by Marvin): https://www.instagram.com/p/CLH1UFYj0Vw/ If you like our content, support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/17thshard For discussion, theories, games, and news, come to https://www.17thshard.com Come talk with us and the community on the 17th Shard Discord: https://discord.gg/17thshard Want to learn more about the cosmere and more?

  25. ?Weekly Roundup time! Lots of progress updates on books (Wax & Wayne 4, Skyward 4, and an unspecified book that's probably a Dark One story), and lots of YouTube stuff coming up (two livestreams this month, and an interview with Will Friedle)! Also, The Way of Kings leatherbounds have been added to the store, as have Strength before Weakness T-shirts! As is often the case, we begin with an update on Wax & Wayne 4: The Lost Metal has officially been sent off to the beta readers. As mentioned last time, Brandon plans to do the next revision in spring, giving the community beta readers and the editors plenty of time to get all their feedback in and organized. Now that that's out of the way for now, he will be starting a revision of a story he is co-writing with Dan Wells for Mainframe. While Brandon did not give a name for it, Dan recently tweeted about finishing the first draft of a collab named Dark One: Forgotten, so it's probably that. Forgotten will be a prequel to the main Dark One books, and an in-world "true crime"-style podcast featuring a journalist tracking a serial killer. No other information has been revealed, but that description plus the name should probably be sending some alarm bells a-ringing in the heads of anyone who read Dark One's first volume. (For those curious, Mainframe's site also lists a story named Dark One: Prophetic Histories, which we know essentially nothing about.) This will, however, slow down work a bit on the next item on our list: prewriting for Skyward 4 (which is at 20%). As a reminder, this final installment in the Skyward series—tentatively named Defiant—is expected to release spring 2023. However, the first draft is intended to be finished by the end of 2021, so that he can jump into Stormlight 5 come the new year. In other things Skyward, Janci Patterson's first Skyward Flight novella Sunreach has been doing excellently in the ratings, currently sitting at: 4.9 stars on Audible 4.7 stars on Amazon 4.4 stars on Goodreads Shameless plug, since we're on the topic of Sunreach reviews: if you've finished and want to see some full spoiler discussion about it, be sure to check out Shardcast, the official podcast of the 17th Shard (that's us!), which today released a Sunreach Minisode where you can hear some of our other staff discuss it. As a reminder, you can find links to purchase Sunreach on Penguin Random House's website, as which also has links to order Skyward and Starsight, or to pre-order ReDawn (out October 26th), Cytonic (out November 23rd), and Evershore (out December 28th). For a final bit of book news, Brandon gave a minor clarification on reading order: while it's recommended to read Cytonic before Evershore (which is release order), this is a matter of pacing, not spoilers, and if you really want to read the novellas all in a row, you can do that without ruining the Cytonic experience, it just won't be optimal because the stories were designed to read most naturally the order they're coming out in. In addition to book news, we have … other book things! Ahem. Anyway, Dragonsteel Books will be selling a limited supply of The Way of Kings leatherbound editions left over from the Kickstarter for $200. They can be found on the store's website, and will be mailed directly from the bindery (this means they cannot be bundled with any other store items for shipping). Once this stock runs out, they will likely not be reprinted until next year, though specifics are not settled yet. Any reprinted editions will not be signed, and may or may not come with the slipcase or genuine leather covers, since those were unlocked by Kickstarter stretch goals and are not the normal way Brandon's leatherbounds are done. In another piece of merch news, Strength before Weakness T-Shirts are also now available on Dragonsteel's store. They cost $25 and are available from size Small to size 3X-Large. Book news isn't the only news, however (though there's a lot of it)—we've got some YouTube news as well! First up, Brandon will be doing two livestreams this month, instead of his usual one, but will not be doing any in November due to Cytonic's release and the Dragonsteel Mini-Con. The first one will be on October 7th, alongside Janci Patterson. This will be a normal Q&A stream (theoretically spoiler-free, as usual; hopefully a Cytoverse spoiler stream may happen eventually but none have been confirmed), and presumably held around the normal time (usually his streams are somewhere around 6PM or 7PM MDT). However, timing has not been confirmed so please take that guess with a grain of salt and watch Brandon's Twitter for official announcements. Update: Confirmed to be at 6PM MDT, as expected. Stream will be up on YouTube at this link. The second stream will be a fanmail stream at 3PM MDT on October 30th, where Brandon and his wife Emily will, dressed in costume, try and get through opening a large chunk of the fanmail they've been sent. For time reasons, questions will not be taken for this stream, outside of ones sent in with the mail. (Note: packages are pre-screened before he opens them, though the first time Brandon himself will be seeing anything will be on-stream. So keep it appropriate!) In addition to the streams, Brandon interviewed Will Friedle at FanX, where the two discussed their favorite pieces of media and why they consider them to be so good. Brandon also says that there are other similar videos in the pipeline, though he has not released details yet. (No updates on the Script Notes video or movie review he mentioned a little over a month ago, unfortunately, but I imagine those will be coming out eventually as well.) Lastly, just a reminder that Inktober is currently ongoing, and there's a great set of Cosmere-themed prompts made for it by our very own @FelCandy and Dragonsteel's Isaac Stewart! You can find art using the prompts on various social platforms, such as Twitter, Tumblr, or Instagram (close call on whether that last link was gonna work today or not…) Which series are you looking forward to the continuation of most? And more immediately, which Skyward story seems most exciting? Alternatively, are you going to buy a leatherbound or T-shirt? Also, any cool Inktober art you loved? Wow, there really are a lot of things this week… Anyway, if you have opinions on any of those questions, let us know in the comments below! Naturally, Brandon's Weekly Update video is on YouTube, and a transcript will at some point be uploaded to his blog.
