Giant Chalkings

13 posts in this topic

Does anyone else think that the Nazca lines look like giant chalkings (gulp), and might be what the title of the 2nd book is referring to?

o.o

Yeah. They do look like giant chalklings... but aren't chalk. Also, what about 3d chalklings? they're something that my brother some friends and I have come up with in an rp that included the rithmatist's magic. essentially you draw your chalkling onto a 3d object, or carve chalk into a desired shape, including a glyph of rending because it really quite would need it in order to do much as 3d... anyway, just a strange idea we thought of. Also, how are chalklings controlled? we're told "glyphs" yet they obviously have some measure of intelligence, take for example the redhead's unicorns (sorry, I forgot her name), they take very few glyphs, but are better behaved than any other creatures.

If they were giant chalklings, they would likely not be very strong. They aren't that complicated.

I know. I'm just saying that it looks like a great real-world reference for the 2nd book, especially if they are going to South America.

Sorry, what is the title of the second book? I haven't heard of it yet.

The Aztlanian (Rithmatist 2).

That's the next book title.

You probably saw this already, but Brandon had said giant chalklings are a possibility (source)

The Great Circle in Nebrask shows you can scale up defenses. Can you also scale up and draw a Godzilla-sized chalkling?

Brandon Sanderson

Uh, this is theoretically possible (laughter). Yeah, yeah. Theoretically possible.

If the United States became a bunch of islands on this earth I could see the Nazca Lines being chalk, maybe dormant?, instead of stone/dirt

Side thing, what if you drew a chalking on a piece of paper, preserved it, and than crunched up the paper. Would it kill the chalkling?

Hm. I don't think so, unless the chalk was damaged too much.

I think it'd be cool to have tank chalklings.

It stays still because it's a statue. ^^

And the statue of liberty is torn to pieces and destroyed.
