Just a note on the origin of the word 'Narak'. In-world, in Roshar, it means Exile.

'Narak' is, however, also a real-world word. It is a Hindi word, referring to Hell or Underworld. It seems thematically appropriate too, for the setting. This information probably belongs in the introduction or trivia section.

Please feel free to add it in Trivia; that sounds like a great piece of trivia.

May I ask how do you know the Hindi meaning of narak? Are you from India ?
