How to fight a storm

3 posts in this topic

We do have some idea what the Knights Radiant are facing. Fighting an immortal enemy who can resurrect within days is a serious problem. So an obvious point to strike at is the Everstorm. Yet how do you fight a storm? You could

  • divert it, over open water it is useless to the enemy
  • destroy it, that is the obvious approach
  • render it useless by arcane means

So what can be weaponized?

  • The Everstorm was created by a group of Stormform? Can they undo their work?
  • Can their work be done by fabrials
  • Can a large group of Windrunners shidt or destroy the storm?
  • Can they be replaced with Fabrials?

Now to the wilder possibilities

  • Drop Nightblood into it
  • Start a breeding programm for Larkin and drop millions of them into the storm
  • form an alliance with Sja-Anat and get her to corrupt a few Radiant's spren to give them super-Larkin abilities

For what it's worth, there is a popular theory that the Everstorm is a new (10th) UnMade.   If true that would open up new possibilities, like a Perfect Gem prison.

Fun topic I have wanted to do one of these for a while

Maybe.  Alternatively a fabrial of the right spren that mimics stormform could work.

You could also get the spren of the everstorm to promise to turn around and go the other way.  With enough stormlight Szeth and Nightblood could almost certainly kill it(those were my initial thoughts).

Technically yes but that might be very very large group with an even larger amount of stormlight.

Not if they start bringing new parshmen to that open water.  You just made a less mobile respon point.

In theory.

Also in theory although I am not sure how many larkin would approve of the all void diet.

How would this work.

Some ones that we have not considered.  Maybe Dalinar could get it to just stand still by binding it to a location.  Maybe he could bind it to braize by an oathpact 2.0.  Maybe you could just shift it with stormform fabrails telling it to not do its thing this round but instead just pass in peace.  Maybe Lift will challenge it to a waffle eating contest.
