Factions on Roshar (spoilers)

2 posts in this topic

With WoR, we have more of an idea about the factions on Roshar.  I was particularly intrigued by the following snippet from ch 54:

"We will need to find how much he knows."  Mraize's voice.  You will bring these pages to Master Thaidakar.  We are close, but so-it appears-are Restares's cronies."

The response came in a rasping voice.  Shallan couldn't make it out. 

"No, I'm not worried about that one.  The old fool sows chaos, but does not reach for the power offered by opportunity.  He hides in his insignificant city, listening to it's songs, thinking he plays in world events.  He has no idea.  His is not the position of the hunter.  This creature in Tukar, however, is different.  I'm not convinced he is human.  If he is, he's certainly not of the local species ..."


I thought it would be interesting to have a compilation of the factions and what we know about each.  I have started it and will compile contributions from this thread, if people want to contribute.


So the parties that we are aware of:

  • Diagramists
  • Ghostbloods
  • Radiants
  • Shamanate
  • Skybreakers
  • Sons of Honor
  • Wit/Hoid
  • 17th Shard
