A Random Theory about a Group From SP 4

11 posts in this topic

What if the Night Brigade are trying to Unmake the Dawnshards? In my theory, they're trying to get all of the Dawnshards in order to unite all of the Shards back into an Adonalsium-like being or Adonalsium himself/itself, and then Unmake it from there. I have no idea why they'd want to do this if they did, but it's just a thought I have in my head I want to get out. 

That's all, carry on.

I don't see why they would want to do that... but I don't see any problems with that reasoning either.

What do you mean by unmake?

I think you contradict yourself - in your theory, do they want to unmake the Dawnshards or Adonalsium?

Also, that's a huuuge assumption that 1. you need the Dawnshards in order to unite the Shards (at least one event in the Cosmere implies that Adonalsium could be reformed without them, just like a vase can potentially be fixed without the stone that broke it) and 2. that you could just reunite the Shards by getting together the Dawndhards - they'd probably need all the Shards at one place, too, and - with the Dor and other ones Splintered and other problems - that's a task that is close to impossible.

Also, Unmaking as used in the Stormlight Archive (mainly by Raboniel) seems to imply corruption of the Investiture of one (or more) Shards by another Shard, writing it over and making it Investiture of the other Shard. Which means that Adonalsium can't be Unmade, since there is no Shard outside of Adonalsium that could possibly corrupt it.

So there's a lot of problems with this. That said, I do agree that they are most likely hunting the Dawnshards - maybe to use them, maybe to eliminate them. The former is probably more likely, but the latter seems more interesting to me personally

Turn them into some sort of anti-weapon, or something. Not sure, it was just a thought from a month ago.

Eh, it was a month ago, but both I think. Unmake the Dawnshards and then use them to make an Anti-Adonalsium. Or use the Dawnshards, create an Adonalsium-like being, and then Unmake it. Take either or both. It was just a thought.

I still confused what is a anti-weapon ( A weapon that destroys other weapons?) And what is a Anti-Adonalsim ( Do you mean that in the biblical sense like a false or replacement Adonalsim?)

I don't think that would work.  The shards derive from the dawnshards not the other way around.

It's hard to describe, but I picture it akin to what Anti-Light is to Light. It's the inversion of something, but not the opposite of that thing.

More or less a being with nigh-omnipotent power but fueled by Anti-Investiture, with the opposite purpose of Adonalsium. Imagine if Adonalsium had a polarity; Anti-Adonalsium would have the opposite polarity, in a way. 

Again, it was a random theory from last month. Y'all are thinking far too much and far too hard about it. I honestly forgot I wrote t.

Interesting I thought Anti investiger had the same intent as original investiger. But I can't think of any particular passage.  Dose anyone know if it dose or not?

Yep, that's what we do here!

If the Night Brigade are kind of a homage to the Black Company (mercenaries), they might be looking for the Dawnshards just because they're potentially incredibly powerful weapons.
