First, is this the right subforum to post this? I'm not sure, but for now I'll put it here. Please point me to the correct place if this isn't it. Anyway, the PM:

Does a Shard on Roshar have a bead representing it in Shadesmar?

I don't mean the Vessel (assuming that the Vessel is even considered "separate"). I'm talking about the actual Shard itself.

No, it does not. Good question.

I guess I should add this to the Arcanum database, right? Would I put this post as the source, or what?

 

Honestly, kinda a shame. If Shards did have beads there, then that combined with this WoB could have some weird (and probably very very bad) results.

I'm not surprised. It'd be really weird if they did. But so many exploits *sigh*

Even if the shards had beads, I don’t think Nightblood would be powerful enough to destroy an entire shard.

 

Questioner

If it's possible for Nightblood to actually interact with a Shard, what would happen?

Brandon Sanderson

A Shard would try to stay very far away from Nightblood. Nightblood could not plausibly destroy an entire Shard but the Vessel could be in danger.

But now I’m thinking about Nightblood being stabbed into a mountain bead...
