Seems like Hoid's backstory, the Liar of Partinel is no longer in the plans. Will we still get a Hoid (origin) novella(s)? Will his story be divided from Dragonsteel to Mistborn era 4, revealed as they become relevant?

Hmm, might we see Hoid in this planned Aethers trilogy?

With three books for Aether, what're the chances that the meat of the plot remains the same?

Where in the Cosmere timeline would it be?

Waiting is difficult

so RN Aethers are Pre-Shattering Magic. 

that's a pretty big WoB

i wonder how the magic changed after the shattering?

and if they are pre-shattering, that could mean that the Aethers are on a planet without any shard in residence.

 

Pagerunner

Are the Aethers from one of the Shards that we know? Or are they of a Shard we haven't learned about?

Brandon Sanderson

Right now they are pre-Shattering.

But I will probably change that.

Oh yeah, the Aether of Night is older than the Liar of Partinel. He tried to put Aethers in LoP. Before that he wanted to write about Aethers of Lor. Now with Stormlight, he's canonized the Aethers. I wonder why the Aethers magic would be such an important part of the Cosmere?

A pre-Shattering magic system would be cool or alternatively this could also introduce more Shards to us... which do you prefer?

  • Because they are non-locational, transferable and require no exotic fuel.
  • Verdant is optimally adapted to crossing the CR on vehicles made with Ferrous
  • A band of teleporters in invested armor is a terrifying opponent

We have no seen trading bands or mercenaries. That I would guess to be the reason.

I love how the concept of "Living Night" was in 3 Sanderson novels.

     First in Mythwalker with Ix.

Which didn't work

     Then with The Aether of Night

Which he still didn't like.

     Then finally in the Stormlight Archive

Where it finally found its home. After failing to place it in 2 other novels.

It's a great way to see how brandons writing skills evolved. The same concept in 3 novels.
