  1. I'm new to posting theories online, so please leave feedback below, both on the theory itself and my presentation of it. Please also tell me if this has already been proposed. In WoR, chapter 42, Shallan is in Sebarial's warcamp, having just woken up to a plate of food from Palona. She asks Pattern to remind her to thank Palona, then makes a throwaway comment about how she is "divine." Pattern then says: "Mmm. No. I think she is...Ah...Exagggeration?" I think that he sensed that she was not human, and was going to correct Shallan on her prescribing divinity to her when he realized it was an exaggeration. I think that this indicates that Palona is in fact not human, and is instead another species entirely. We know she isn't either breed of Aimian, and one of the only other species in the Cosmere that could blend in with Rosharans, specifically herdezians, as this is Palona's race, is a kandra. To my knowledge, there is only one confirmed kandra worldhopper, the agent of Harmony. I think that if Harmony's agent is trying to gather as much information as they can on other worlds, then one of the best places to be on Roshar is in Sebarial's warcamp. There are quite a few good reason's to be there as opposed to other places. One, the kandra worldhoppper is able to stay near a great deal of action in Sebarial's warcamp, as Sebarial joins Dalinar on the Shattered Plains to go and fight the listeners. Two, it is alluded to that Sebarial gossips with Palona about major policy decisions made in meetings with the rest of the highprinces. Three, Shallan lived in Sebarial's warcamp and had a lot of contact with Palona, who, if she is a kandra, probably figured out that Shallan is a native magic user, something that Harmony would likely be interested in. Some more supporting evidence that I have for Palona being a worldhopping kandra agent of Harmony is that she doesn't care very much about Vorin customs or chastity laws. I couldn't find the specific scene, but there is a scene where Shallan walks in on Sebarial and Palona getting massages and Palona is lying facedown with her safehand only halfway under a towel. Kandra like MeLaan have been shown to sometimes be careless with modesty in the past, which may be what is being shown here. Palona's Coppermind article says that she is good at anticipating Shallan's needs, which I believe indicates that despite her almost careless demeanor, she pays extra attention to Shallan. Palona also doesn't seem to be threatened by imminent danger as on the Shattered Plains, she is just reading a book. That passage describes her as seeming almost bored, but I believe that is too careless for a human to be at a battle. I think that the kandra worldhopper was trying to seem bored in order to disguise her interest with the battle around her. Also, the fact that she didn't seem afraid at all of the Shattered Plains seems to indicate that she didn't believe she was in any danger, which she wouldn't be if she was a kandra. I think that this is all the evidence I can find right now, but please comment if you find anything that is pertinent to this theory.
  2. From the album The King's Wit

    "I wonder if you could do that to a man. Pull him apart, emotion by emotion, bit by bit, bloody chunk by bloody chunk. Then combine them back together into something else, like a Dysian Aimian." For relaxation I decided to play around with color palettes and ended up drawing Wit aka Hoid from the Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson. I loved basically everything about these books so far but Hoid's quips are always a good extra
  3. Ok y'all this is just complete throwing ideas out there. I wanna hear what you think. What do we think has happened to Marsh over the 300 years he's been alive. Has he world hopped? Joined the 17th Shard? Is he helping Kelsier? We know that he wouldn't have been accepted being a leftover inquisitor. Would he have tried to move on to other planets in the Cosmere. If there is anyone who could figure out world hopping and the cognitive realm it would have to be Marsh right? I mean could you imagine Marsh meeting up with Vasher or Hoid? How entertaining would that be? I posted this here instead of mistborn due to the questions about worldhopping and those characters. I don't want to spoil that for others. Can one of yall awesome admin's delete one of these. Double posted on accident due to bad mobile connection
  4. So I recently finished re-reading Way of Kings for the third time. While reading it, I remember placing a note (ebook version, so I have highlighted and noted a lot of passages) about what at the time seemed a relatively unimportant scene. Then, browsing the forums just now, I read this question to Brandon: The reason I find this so interesting is because the passage I noted (in chapter 54: Gibletish) contains Highprince Hatham, Dalinar, and an ardent talking to a Natan man. The ardent says this: "One wonders if you are equally devout when not standing on our soil." I found this a bit strange, since the only place on Roshar where soil exists is in Shinovar, and we've seen that practically nobody knows what it is. It's also not an idiomatic phrase, since Rysn's babsk has to explain to her the meaning of the word. Yet here is an Alethi ardent on the Shattered Plains, about as far away from Shinovar as you can get, using the word soil. Even if we consider that this ardent somehow traveled to Shinovar at one point, and that he grew comfortable enough with their phrases to use soil metaphorically like this, why would he do so when surrounded by people who won't know what he's talking about? At first I had considered this to simply be a slip-up in the writing, since to us on Earth that sort of phrase is relatively commonplace. But after seeing this mention that you could discover worldhoppers by examining their speech, and then a very similar example being used to demonstrate, I am suddenly less sure. Thoughts?
  5. So in the stormlight archive there is a character in the ghostbloods, named mraize and in one scene he is said to have a "chicken" (Rosharan for bird) which brandon has confirmed to be a Aviar. Any Ideas on what it's power might be?
  6. The flute I'm refering to is the flute that Hoid gives to Kaladin and he leaves in the camps. This question was prompted by this WOB So do we know anything about this? Can someone find where TLR is described?
  7. okay, so we all remember Mraize's souvenirs from shardworlds: the vial of sand, the santhid skull, the preserved flower etc. however, the one that stood out the most (to me at least) was the branch with carvings on it
  8. At the end of White Sand [prose version] Kenton decides to chase after Khriss, and we're left without knowing how that turns out. As we know, Khriss later becomes a notable worldhopper. Has anyone here spotted anyone else fitting Kenton's description in other Cosmere works, indicating that Kenton also became a worldhopper?
  9. In Oathbringer, in the scene by Adolin's birth when Dalinor was drinking, one of his friends (I think his name was Bashin) "claimed to have seen half the world and wore a ridiculous hat" (it's quoted from memory, so it's just the general idea. In Warbreaker, there is a character named Parlin who likes hats. I know it's a REALLY tenuous connection, but any thoughts?
  10. I've only recently finished Elantris and am quite interested in the Elantrian magic system and so have been developing a character for fun. However, if I wish to worldhop as said Elantrian character (who wouldn't if they could) I face the slight disadvantage of being away from Elantris and, oh I don't know, the magic not working. So the crux of my inquiry is, is it possible to somehow capture or store the Dor in some sort of vessel to carry around with you in your adventures? Would these be nicrosilminds? Spheres? Some other Thing™? I do hope it's possible, otherwise Elantrians prove to be pretty worthless worldhoppers.
  11. I just reread Oathbringer and noticed that when Dalinar goes to see the Nightwatcher he has a guide named Felt whose physical description is; "Had to have some Shin blood in him, judging by those eyes". Felt helps guide Dalinar to the Valley and the Nightwatcher. He says that he came to see the nightwatcher, but she didn't show up. His reason is "she doesn't like foreigners" and when Dalinar mentions he is from Alethkar Felt says, "You're a little less foreign". Given that he doesn't look like a full Rosharan and he consideres himself an outsider I am guessing he is a world hopper. What I don't know is what his purpose is. Does anyone know if Felt shows up in anything other scene in SA? He might just be a random character, but I wonder if behind the scenes a secret society (ghostbloods maybe?) was guiding Dalinar toward the nightwatcher. I'm curious if anyone else has a crazy theory.
  12. Nananav was a character in Oathbringer who was robbed by Veil and her crew. Veil's crew posed as carpet workers, which allowed them to infiltrate the keep. The name Nananav reminds me of Nalthian naming schemes, with the repetition of consonants, such as Vivenna or Llarimar. I would assume she would be at third heightening or higher, which would allow perfect color recognition, as one line of dialogue from her is requiring the new carpet to be a perfect match of color. Am I reading too much into this?
  13. Is Devlin Airs from Bands of Mourning part of the Set? Or is he a Worldhopper? He knows too much about the Set to just be a information broker. I think he's a worldhopper who's been on scadrial for a while.
  14. In Way of Kings Szeth stealthily enters a building to assasinate a thief guild-master on behalf of his current master. When he arrived a man in a mask was there and had already dispatched his mark. He possessed Szeth Oathstone so Szeth Bowed to him. What I find intriguing is when the man left he waved his hand and turned the wall to mist and stepped thru . Szeth assumed it was Soulcaster. I’m not convinced . What is further intriguing to me is the knowledge the man had and the way he and his companions dispatched Szeth current master and beat him to his target. I’m wondering is this guy a worldhopper? His mask makes me think of southern scadrians for some reason . Also he got into that room way faster than Szeth . So let’s say his mask is just. a mask ; Could he perhaps be a elsecaller ? He only had one gem on a chain , there was no mention. Of a soulcaster on his hand! Also if he could elsecall that might explain how he got past all the guards and to the target . Elsecallers have no prohibition with killing or assasinating people . Jasnah does it all the time. We know Teravangion has at least one radiant in his employ , who is to say he doesn’t have another?
  15. Roshar * * * 3/5 star Discription: ancient stories of nights, heralds, and surges infect this land and all who visit are awed by the grate beasts that wander this world, it's a great place to visit or even live! The high storms are a site to see and the many cultures of the different nations are fascinating. Wether or not you're a member of the 17th shard or a fee-lance worldhopper roshar is the place to be. Plese leave your review of Roshar!
  16. I've been really enjoying looking for Cosmere-related clues as I read through Brandon's work, and I thought of a question. When Hoid visits a world, how long does he generally stay there before moving on? He appears in all 3 books from Mistborn Era 1, but was he there during all that time or did he leave and come back? He is/was also the King's Wit in Alethkar, the Imperial Fool of the Rose Empire, and a storyteller in Hallandren, positions that I assume took some time to get into. I'm not sure if there is any mention of these kinds of details in the books themselves (I haven't read them all yet) or if Brandon has revealed anything while answering questions. What do you all think? Theories are welcome, but please don't spoil stuff for me. So far I've read Elantris, Hope of Elantris, Emperor's Soul, Warbreaker, Mistborn Era 1, Alloy of Law and Way of Kings.
  17. So has anyone been able to identify any of Mraize's "curiosities" yet? I don't believe that they're not significant, but we may not have seen some of them yet. I'll include the passage here for reference: Any thoughts?
  18. So seeing as Hoid appears within both the final empire series and alloy of law series as my only evidence, when one worldhops, do you travel through time/can you? Or is it just the fact that Hoid has greatly extended his lifespan along with other worldhoppers?
  19. Ok, so I was doing a reread of Mistborn (6th time) and I realized that when Dox was talking to Vin about his life on the plantation, he mentioned his old girlfriend, Kareien. So I don’t know for certain, but literally like all people from sel have aons incorporated into there name so what is the likelihood that some random skaa is going to name there daughter such a name.
  20. Hoid mentions that he appears wherever he's needed. Could that be the result of a visit to Nightwatcher? A curse?
  21. Hi, I haven't followed the forum in a while. But i remember there beeing a worldhopper from Nhaltis somwhere in the cosmere. I think i maybe found her: I don't know if anyone has propoused this already. At least i didn't find anything. Let me hear your thoughts
  22. [OB] SPOILERS Palona makes an offhand remark that Sebarial keeps poor wanderers and that she was the one who stayed. Could Palona be a worldhopper?
  23. I'm new to the forum - been searching around a bit without much luck. I'm wondering if anyone has made a solid connection between Allik from Bands of Mourning with Iyatil from Words of Radiance? As far as I recall they are the only two characters who have a propensity for seemingly permanent mask-wearing. I did find a confirmation from Brandon that Iyatil is a world hopper, and Allik was presented as some unknown type of 'alien' in Bands. So I am assuming they are connected in the Cosmere (maybe from Silverlight?). Just curious if anyone had something more concrete? Thanks!
  24. As I received book 17 of Oathbringer, my question to Brandon was "name a character that is in the 17th shard, but we do not know it". His response in my book was Iyatil used to be a member of the 17th shard. Thoughts... theories?! Exciting stuff!
  25. It begins, the newest, craziest topic of them all! So, recently, I mentioned my rather strange discovery of VenDell's coat and its tendency to get lighter throughout the first few chapters, and I predicted he was an Awakener. http://www.17thshard.com/forum/topic/53640-jordancon-this-year/page-5#entry436369 I predicted that VenDell had Breath and has used it for Awakening (or powering something via Breath). Since then, I have found more evidence to support this theory (yes, more...crazy as it is). I will be listing them in order, with the original quote I brought up in the JordanCon topic at the end. When VenDell first appears, his coat is described as "dark brown": ~The Bands of Mourning, 4, Kindle Edition~ Next, at the Survivorist Church it's described as just brown: ~BoM, 9 At Wax's manor the first time around it's lighter still: ~BoM, 24-25 And the last time we see VenDell at Wax's manor, when Wayne describes VD's suit as tan: ~BoM,42 In the course of only a few hours, VenDell's coat goes from a dark brown, to a light tan. This is obvious when put together like the above, I spotted the Wayne quote on my first reading and highlighted it (because I found it suspicious), but just recently was inspired to go back and look for more signs/clues though I was already pretty sure this was happening. So, what I think is going on here, VenDell has acquired some Breath. Not only that, he understands how to use it and is using it to fuel something throughout the time we see him (and possibly on screen). More than likely, this means that VenDell has gone to Nalthis, or if he hasn't, he has become familiar with Nalthis Investiture. Due to his somewhat advanced understanding of what Investiture is and how it works, this does make some sense...however: ~BoM, 43-44 He doesn't "like" leaving. Or so he claims...(and yes, the fact that Wax, of all people, calls him a Metalborn is also...an interesting tidbit, but let's ignore that, Wax is just using slang for people who can do cool things like be practically indestructible). In conclusion (TL;DR), I believe that VenDell has done three things. First, he has acquired Breath and is using it to fuel some kind of Awakening (I do not think it is traditional Awakening, though, I think he's doing something more interesting as the above WoB suggests, it says "And are making use of it in variety of ways." I believe VenDell fits into this catagory). Second, VenDell has been off-world, and has at least gone to Nalthis. This makes VenDell a world-hopping kandra. We also have a WoB about those (and it's stated in the plural). Finally, VenDell lied. He has a different reason he does not want to go with Wax and his crew, and he is probably much more interested in the Bands than he is letting on (because he's an innocent researcher!). In the end, I propose that there is a lot more to VenDell than we've been led to believe. I don't believe he's a "bad" guy or working for Shard X, but VenDell knows Wax (or knows about him...) well enough to push all his buttons and make Wax do what he wants.
