[Bands/Secret History Spoilers?] Cosmeric Ars Arcanum

8 posts in this topic

Has this been attempted yet? I know we have the Coppermind wiki, but instead of having everything on separate pages, have we tried to create a more comprehensive Ars Arcanum that will list all the known powers in the different worlds, their interactions with other powers in their world, and finally theories as to how they might be connected to/they might react to one another? I very well be nerd enough to take on this challenge, but it seems like an awfully large undertaking if this has already been done before.

It is a pretty large project, and one that requires careful planning. Messing it up would make it very difficult to reorganize things.

 I also feel like Brandon is doing that thing where the Characters of the books have everything wrong, and there's going to be some grand Cosmeric revelation that upturns everything we know and makes the Ars Arcanum's all invalid.

No, not everything. But Brandon treats these discoveries as ones arrived at through the scientific method (and, indeed, what we have seen from Khriss and Nazh suggests that they do exactly that). So while some parts could turn out to be entirely wrong, I expect most will just get better and more accurate over time, one small piece at a time.

Agreed. I'm not saying that a fan-made Ars Arcanum would be 100% accurate, but it would be the most complete set we could get given the information we have. It's really tempting when I'm currently sitting around in the jury duty waiting room with 8 hours of nothing ahead of me... Lol

Think about how something like this could be structured then :)

 

Ideally I would like a custom web site/page, but there is so much ash on my plate, there's no way I'll get to it.

You're not supposed to take the fine china outside during ashfalls, Argent.

You could just make a separate page on the Coppermind for this, if that's allowed. Haven't done any editing on the wiki so I don't know the rules.
