[OB]Dalinar at the Oathgate

6 posts in this topic

So, when Dalinar goes to Vedenar the smoke/Thrill give him an anxiety attack and does his best to escape. Obviously he has no sword, and therefore...

Dalinar growled. He felt something he could touch, something beyond places. The power that bound worlds together. His power.

Wait, the Stormfather said. This is not right!

Dalinar ignored him, reaching beyond and pulling power through. Something bright white manifested in his hand, and he rammed it into the keyhole.

This thing makes the Oathgate work. Now, what the hell was it? A manifestation of the Stormfather? Did Dalinar pull a Rand and use the enemy's power? Something else?

Great question. I, too, am wondering what this is. Does it foreshadow his later Ascension? Was it, for some reason, Odium's power? I'm interested in seeing the speculation of others. 

Btw, minor point @redgarlic68, but you need to put [OB] at the start of the title of this thread.

Hmmm, I thought it was Dalinar forcing the Stormfather to form into a Shardblade of some sort.  But maybe he somehow touched a piece of Adonalsium himself?  Or a piece of the Spiritual Realm?

 

Dalinar as the new Adonalsium would be pretty awesome....

This is what I figured too. I thought he somehow forced (part of) the Stormfather to manifest as a Shardblade.

Originally I thought it was just making a stormfatherblade but I feel like if that happened once it would've happened again at least one more time- looking back on it I feel a much more logical explanation was that this foreshadowed his Ascension

I think he was touching the spiritual realm (something beyond places) but doing so was straining his bond with the Stormfather as he hadn't said the next oath yet. (Kind of like Syl forcing Kaladin stormlight in WoR)
