  1. From the album Radiants

  2. I know there was a soundtrack made for WoK/Kaladin, and it was awesome. Can we expect more?
  3. I've been thinking for a long time about possible origins of the Listener's tradition of not touching their dead. Maybe it is only in there because it is a convenient plot point in Way of Kings, but Brandon likes depth to his cultures so I think this was thought out a little more than that. I suspect it is related to the Fused essentially being body snatchers. Maybe they refuse to touch their dead out of respect to their gods. Based on a history of the Fused inhabiting Singer bodies then when those bodies were killed they didn't touch them out of reverence or fear of their gods. The tradition continued after the desolations had ended and remains part of even the parshmen's cultural memories. Has anyone else been thinking about this? Anyone have some good theories and/or juicy WoBs?
  4. More doodles from during math~
  5. Okay so let me explain... I was super bored yesterday, so I ended up doing this... You know how Brandon puts up those little percent bars on his website? I'm keeping track of those with the graph paper, and the spots around it will fill with stuff~ the title, cover, the pdf Brandon gives out with viewpoint and interlude characters laid out, etc.~ I might post again, in a few months, as it will inevitably fill slowly, but surely. (Also, I realized that the word Stormlight has 10 letters, so I colored the first 3 letter the color of the first three books, and will fill in number 4 once it's out. )
  6. Okay so this is pretty open ended, but while on the Who Do You Want Most Dead thread and the Am I The Only One That... I noticed that... People, including myself really hate Moash, and I think y'all need to vent because I'm seeing it every where. (Myself included...) So go, my friends, RANT.
  7. I was actually in math class, and I usually doodle stuff like this, but I liked this one, so here it is.
  8. From the album Syl Doodles

    Little doodles from Bio
  9. From the album Syl Doodles

    Not anything special, but fun to make. I was just testing out some of my friend's markers she got for Christmas, and made some little doodles
  10. Oftentimes in SA there are seemingly insignificant characters that are described very specifically, such as Nale in the prologue of WoK. When Brandon provides specific description it’s usually a flag that the character is actually important. In chapter 53 of WoK Kaladin saves an unnamed bridgeman, described as having “dark brown skin and brown eyes, his thick black hair pulled back into a long, braided tail.” “How …” the man said. He didn’t have even a hint of an accent. Kaladin had expected him to be Azish because of the dark skin.” This is an odd description, and Brandon surely knows more about who this guy is. Is anything known about who this is? Am I just seeing importance in this man that he doesn’t really have?
  11. I went to the Skyward book signing in Seattle! It was great, and in Sanderson's presentation, he talked about books he's written that failed. One such book was the 2002 version of WoK. It was so different than what we all know! No spren, no Knights Radiants, and no Bridge Four. Basically, the story starts with Taln stumbling into a town with a shardblade, and saying a disasters coming, and the story goes through trying to figure out whether he's actually a herald, and whether he's telling the truth or not. He said there were too many viewpoint characters at once, and none of there stories got far enough fast enough. According to Brandon, it failed, but he plans to maybe publish it after he's finished the Stormlight series as another thing for fans to enjoy. Some of it is still cannon apparently. The process of revising that old version came the Knights Radiants, and from them came the ideas for spren, and from redoing the viewpoint stuff came Bridge 4. Just thought other fans would want to know. It was really fascinating, and he even read an excerpt from it.
  12. Hi Sanderfans/Sharders, I will be posting a series of "scrolls" about Moshe Feder, Brandon's Tor editor, on my blog. Moshe was the person who "discovered" Brandon and acquired Brandon's sixth novel Elantris in 2003. In 2005, Elantris became Brandon's first published novel. Moshe has kindly agreed to be interviewed for this series. Here is the first "scroll" in case any of you are interested to check it out: http://shazarose.blogspot.com/2018/08/moshe-man-behind-copper-mind-scroll-1.html This is the first scroll in what is expected to be a multi-short scroll series on Moshe. A future planned "scroll" will document half of Brandon's twin inspiration for including characters like Kaladin, Shallan and Dalinar, who all suffer from various mental health issues, in his Stormlight Archive series. Moshe himself is one half of this inspiration, and I will be documenting Moshe's bout of bipolar that he wants to share in order to help raise awareness about mental health issues. When I asked him if it would be a painful thing for him to share, he had this to say: "Not painful to share. It’s a duty to help fellow sufferers and to work on reducing stigma. When I was Corflu (fanzine fan con) GoH, it was a major part of my speech." Hope you do enjoy the series if you decide to check it out! Warmest Regards Sharon Hooper
  13. So I read some things saying that Stormlight Archive will be 5 books, and others saying it will be 10 books. Which one is correct? (I found both sources on the Brandon Sanderson website)
  14. As I was re-reading WoK, I noticed Taravangian say something odd. When he revealed himself to Szeth, he says “Sometimes I wonder if the Lifebrother himself sent you to me.” To which Szeth replied, “To bloody myself so that you wouldn’t have to. Yes, that sounds like something one of your Vorin gods would do. Knowing that people associate Stormfather with Jezrien, who is worshipped in Vorinism, could the Lifebrother be the Sibling? The name pattern is similar. Stormfather, Nightwatcher, and now Lifebrother. And if the Sibling was necessary for “life” to survive on Urithiru, then the name is also appropriate. I haven’t seen any other reference to this outside of this scene. So the question is, could the Lifebrother be the Sibling?
  15. Based on the similar thread about adapting Mistborn: TFE to a movie, I ask: if you were in charge of turning the Stormlight Archive into a movie, how would you go about doing it? What would receive more screentime? What, more importantly, would you have to get rid of? But that's just my thoughts. What are yours?
  16. Okay am I the only one here who thinks this whole Helaran killed by Kaladin is a little too convenient..... Well. It just seems to me that Helaran dying on a battle field only six months after his father ordered his death by assassination a little to coincidental seems to me that whoever it was that died in that battle at Kaladins hands may not perhaps be Helaran and that may perhap turn up in next book right around the time that Shallan figures out that Kaladin was the one who killed the shard barer. More than likely he will show up to help convince her to work more closely with the ghostblood... It's a legit theory I mean the only eviadance that we have that Helaran is dead after all is what his shard blade which he wielded once years ago and the fact the dead guy had red hair... I doubt the ghostbloods would leave a tool like a shard blade to be used by only one person and as for the hair colour the dispute took place on a boarder near the horneater mountain ranges where everyone's hair is red. Also who else would have enough influence to convince her brothers to leave there home and go to uruthiru without an argument or a fight. I think Helaran is alive and I think he's going to turn into a major pain in the chull... Just saying.
  17. So.... spoiler alert..... if Dalinar has bonded with the stormfather, and the stormfather is who infuses gems with light, and if Dalinar can control his new spren enough, can he change the way highstorms interact with the world? Ex. frequency, strength etc the point I am trying to get to is if he can learn to exert a certain level of control through his nahel bond he can essentially control the amount of stormlight given (which would control one of the most valuable things on roshar, currency) he could change and possibly crash the economy based on his will alone. also does this mean that he can hold out long enough that all surgebinders starve and go powerless? Same with shardplate? Does he get an unlimited amount of stormlight directly from his spren? Does he have unlimited bondsmithing potential while destroying the economy and making all magical forms of attack and defense (besides shardblades) useless? No radiant police force to stop him after they run out of stormlight.... It is a very good thing that Dalinar is a level headed, well rounded, honorable man.
  18. Oathbringer spoilers! Which ideal gives you shardplate? is radiant shardplate inhabited by a spren? what advantages does radiant shardplate have over normal plate? Are shards basically just really powerful spren? could a shard betray its name? do shards need planets? Sorry About the long list of questions
  19. For school, I have to compare and contrast a specific part The Way of Kings and Words of Radiance. I am writing my essay on the plot structure. Ideas would be appreciated. I already plan to write about how they both focus around a character, WoK around Kaladian and WoR around Shallan, and tell that character's backstory through flashbacks. However, more ideas to help me out would be great.
  20. I am admittedly terrible at search functions. Google is my Nemesis, always. That said, I remember seeing a map that Mr. Sanderson wrote ‘Great Magic Unleashed Here’ on someones copy of WoK. Have we figured out what that was yet? I am stuck on either: 1: The Splintering of Honour. or (My favourite) 2: the Shattering of Adonalsium Hoid was present at the Shattering and seems to spend an inordinate amount of time on Roshar. As massive as the Shattered Plains are (and ‘Shattered’ just sounds... well..) How much energy would it take to cause that level of destruction?
  21. heralds

    Not all of you may remember, but before the prologue of WoK, there was a section that took place 4500 years ago. It detailed the abandoning of the Oathpact, the pact forged by the Heralds to defend humanity from the Voidbringers. This moment was never important until now. So why was the section taken from Kalak's point of view? Why not Nale, Jezrien, Ishar, or Taln himself? Is this fact important? Am I over thinking this? Let me know what you think below along with any theories.
  22. Hey all, I am working my way through my reread of The Way of Kings and Words of Radiance in preparation for release day, and I have stumbled upon something I thought might be noteworthy, but could be entirely coincidental. In the Axies interlude of WOK, it is mentioned that one of the many things that separates Axies, and Siah Aimians in general, from the human population is that their shadow extends towards light sources, not away. In Jasnah's prologue for WoR, when she is having what may well be her first interaction with Ivory, she notices her shadows extending toward the light, not away. This causes her no small amount of panic and terminates in her first(?), unintentional trip into Shadesmar. Does this indicate a relation between Siah Aimians and Elsecallers, or is Ivory (who always, so far, appears ink black in the PR) non-verbally trying to teach Jasnah that she has a link to Stormlight by extending himself, disguised as her shadow, towards the gemstones? Or is it somewhere in between?
  23. In the Epilogue to The Way of Kings I noticed that Wit refers to "Talenel's" (ugh. Brandon you cagey weasel) Blade as a Shardblade instead of an Honorblade. "And then a bright, silvery blade rammed between the massive doors, slicing upward, cutting the bar that held them closed. A Shardblade." Wouldn't Wit know that this was no mere Shardblade? Wouldn't he know it was an Honorblade?
  24. I'm listening to the audiobook, so I don't have the exact page number or anything, but there was a part in Words of Radiance that was a flashback to when Shallan was 14, and Hoid makes an appearance. When he first sees Shallan, he drops his drink, and then drops his jaw in Shallan's direction. Now, I know Hoid is a little strange, but the way it was described made it seem as if he was truly caught off guard by something. Will somebody please shed a light on this scenario for me?
  25. Hello everyone. In my poor planning, I've already finished my rereads of WoK, WoR, and Edgedancer in anticipation of Oathbringer. So, I'm reading Warbreaker now, why not? I noticed that in the scene where Siri is teaching Susebron to read, the very first thing she teaches him is "Shash" which is also one of the slave brands from Kaladin's forehead. Does anyone know of a connection here?
