Shard of Mustaches

um...Did you read the title of the post properly? We're posting BAD shard ideas. This sounds awesome! Magnum P.I. or Ron Swanson would be the shard holder for sure.

Shard of Weakness - Inspires those around the weak and helpless to help them, despite the enormous costs to their money, social life, and amount of sleep.  (For those of you who can't tell, I'm a dad.)

The Shard of Pain. 

 

Imagine. Every time you touched wood, you got a splinter. Stubbing your toes on each individual piece of furniture. Tree branches appearing out of no where. Individual LEGO pieces lining the streets. 

 

*shudder*

The Shard of Monopoly

The more you own the greater your power, but there is also a high chance that you'll go to jail.

Also your brother is probably cheating.

The Shard of Dead Batteries.

Off-topic, I feel like Steelheart is what would happen if somebody had both Endowment and Odium.

The Shard of Recursion.

 

Oh, wait. He just shattered himself so he could hold the Shard of the Shard of Recursion.

The Shard of Recursion.

 

Oh, wait. He just shattered himself so he could hold the Shard of the Shard of Recursion. 

When I first read this, I thought you wrote "he just shartted himself..." Maybe it's my dyslexia getting in the way, but I'm now inspired to come up with my own really bad shard ideas:

 

1) Shard of Incontinence 

    This shard yields power to people who cannot control themselves and yields even more power to people who are really good at shartting. In this world, the most powerful will usually be babies and really old people. The company that owns Depends diapers is the Google of the world. 

 

2) Shard of Incompetence 

    The dumb and foolish receive vast amounts of investiture. For example, the leader of the world would probably be someone like Waren Harding or James Buchanan. Those who walk and text at the same time, without any sense of awareness, are highly invested as well.

Allergen

 

  Sneezing would produce power over super-accelerated plant growth, but only for the duration of the sneezing.  Photics would be the best farmers.

The Shard Schadenfreude. Sponsors an investiture system involving drawing power from causing others misfortune.

The Shard of Stick.

The most powerful of all 16 Shards, but it's to busy being a Stick. And it will continue to be a Stick after all the other shards are splintered.

Is a Shard like what a world is based off of? Or how everything is set out? A theme?

May I refer you to a page here? It contains heavy spoilers for Mistborn, so don't read the page if you haven't read those books. Some of the information is outdated or slightly incorrect, but it's not big stuff. One thing that I think is crucial to understand (and isn't in the opening post) is that Adonalsium is the power of creation (and is still considered as such in any form). The Coppermind wiki is also a great place to look stuff up and it's mostly accurate except where we haven't updated it yet... If you have any other questions, this thread is the place to ask. There's people like Moogle and Weiry (and me, I guess) who like to answer questions like this. 

 

I think that this particular thread doesn't actually reflect the exact nature of Shards. Their names are their Intents, the overall concept which drives the Shards to act. However, I think that the thread reflects the idea of focuses for magic systems better than Intents (metal on Scadrial, commands on Nalthis, etc.). Magic systems arise from interaction of the Intent of the Shard and the nature of the planet on which the Shard settles. 

 

Of course, this conversation is better for laughs than it is Realmatic accuracy, so just try to figure it out for yourself using the data instead of listening to my rambling. ;) As far as this thread is concerned, just ignore my sudden lecture and keep going.  :ph34r:

I did. Unfortunately, I live on the world where the Shard of Auto-Correction was shattered quite badly.

The Shard of Auto-Correct *shudder shudder* You can only use your power after wrongly correcting something.

Odium clearly shattered the shard of Auto-Correct because so many people hate it.

Auto Correct. Gets power from correcting people wrongly. Typos. Gets power from pronouncing and spellings things wrong.

Odium paid little attention once he shattered the Amity. The fact that she was solely responsible for holding the chaos of her shard world at bay meant less than nothing to him- in fact, the feelings of distrust and hatred the shattering sowed amongst the worlds inhabitants were amusing.

In his absence, the world fell to discord and ruin, until, by chance, the greater part of Amity's power was discovered and held by two, worthy bearers: sisters, who used the power they acquired to restore harmony to the world. Much of Amity was lost, but the Sisters gathered the fragments of the shard which remained and, with their great power, reshape them into something new: mystical artefacts that could amplify and unlock the power of Amity, sealed in her creations as her Intent, the spark which formed them.

Amity may be gone, but her Shardworld thrives. And if Odium returns, he will have to learn a hard lesson:

Amity is Magic.

Hoid's Letter:

Fausta is dead, and the power she held diffused.

Also, ponies wat?
