See Also: Code of Conduct | Policies | Etiquette Guide Hello everyone, and welcome to 17th Shard, the official Brandon Sanderson fansite and the home to his official forums, chat, wiki, and more. I'm Eric, and I'm the forum administrator. The staff and I are here to make this place a fun, kind, respectful, and interesting community to be a part of!  Our site is named 17th Shard, at Brandon's suggestion, after the in world cosmere organization, Seventeenth Shard. The cosmere is a connected universe that encompasses most of Brandon's adult novels include, Elantris, Mistborn, Warbreaker, and Stormlight Archive. If this is news to you, man you've come to the right place! If you've read Brandon's cosmere books and want to dig deeper into the universe, I'd suggest you take a look at the topic Cosmere 101, as it's a nice introduction. Of course, if you want to dive into the deep end, check out the cosmere page on our wiki, The Coppermind. A word of caution, however, for if you haven't read all the cosmere books; the Coppermind, along with the Cosmere Discussion board, and Arcanum (our Word of Brandon archive), are full of spoilers which may impact your reading experience. This topic is here to give you the rundown of the forum's including site navigation and features. Click the links below for each section!
