Aging in time bubbles

4 posts in this topic

<p>Sorry if this has been asked before, I have been meaning to know this since the first time I read alloy of law. <br />

Consider someone who burns cadmium say Marasi. If she has sufficiently large amounts of cadmium, and if she keeps burning it continuously she could form a bubble in which the time runs very slowly and the time out of the bubble runs fast. With proper supplies she could stay inside the bubble for days and come out to see years passed.<br />

<br />

<em>Isn't this similar to what </em><em>hoid</em><em> is doing? </em><br />

<br />

Heck Marasi can potentially live thousands of subjective years while living only normal lifespan inside the bubble. Even if she doesn't do that, even if we consider her burning the metal at the same rate as other allomancers, she would live for a longer time than normal people because her body lived a "smaller" time than others.<br />

<br />

Now consider someone burning bend alloy, say like wayne. They are the exact opposite of marasi. He can live for a hundred years inside a bubble to come out and see that only few days have passed. Even for a normal usage of the metals, he would live for a particularly lesser amount of time than what others can, because his body aged "longer" than others for the same outside time for all the time he spends in speed bubbles.<br />

<br />

<strong>Cadmium is more useful than </strong><strong>Marasi</strong><strong> gives it credit for. Consider how much useful it can be for biologists working on evolution, astronomers studying star cycles etc.!!</strong> <br />

<br />

and you can potentially rule out a player from a chase or the events going on if you just sneak in a cadmium burner and flare the metal around the important opponent - say army general. Even if you flare the metal for few seconds, you potentially leave him useless for hours!  <br />

<br />

Consider a seige. If you have enough cadmium burners and if you bring all your poulace and your resources into one spot and make a huge time bubble around them and spend a few weeks inside it, months will have passed outside but you are no where near the end of your food or resources. It can change the face of seiges and war fare!<br />

<br />

Also, how will be savant of cadmium or bendalloy be?</p>

Evolution's timeframe is several orders of magnitude greater than what any Pulser is capable of, unless you use some specific tricks with overlapping bubbles (we made a potential scheme to earn a lot of money that way).

Tell me about this scheme.

And it's event not a jock. The bubbles multiplicate one another. And we've seen the effenciency of only one bubble (and a large one, a small one migth be more efficient), juste imagine what could do a bubble in a bubble in... in bubble ten times. Bubble^10. Scadrial Era3, here we come!
