yeah except that only those in denial still believe that.

High Spren have another reason for aligning with the Fused. Also not all Spren of the same type agree which side to choose.

We haven't really seen any spren other than the Honorspren's reaction to that discovery. The Skybreakers are currently being led by an insane herald, and we don't know much about the Highspren.

those are very good counterarguments @Nameless

Thank you. Welcome to the Shard, by the way.

That is after the Rosharan humans, in their estimation, committed genocide.

My point was that it is far more likely to have a Metalborn Radiant from Scadrial than from Roshar.

Scadrians are also likely to be able to use Stormlight to fuel their metalborn abilities right off the bat where Rosharans wont be able to use metal for investiture.

Unless medallions granting metalborn abilities become commonplace, in which case a Radiant can just sneak in from Shadesmar and nab a few.

Why would they be able to do that? Would a Radiant be able to breath in the mists?

My gut feeling it's going to less of a Radiant vs Mistborn, but more of a personal investiture (Radiants) vs industrial investiture(metallic arts)

In a 1 on 1 fight it might end up being the Radiant that comes out on top. But with being able to develop investiture and have people be able to use powers by strapping on a coin, it's going to be a matter of numbers. There can be only so many Radiants, but anybody can use metallic arts.

Cryptics, and cultivation spen as a group already seem predisposed to aid the radiants even while assuming that Humans murdered spren. Ash spen seem generally disposed the other way.

We know why skybreakers aligned in general with the Fused, but the High Spren don't seem to have an opinion.

Unless the Radiants set up suppressers to disable the metallic arts. Or make a giant speaker playing anti-preservation tones. Then it's a bunch of normal people versus a bunch of superpsoldiers in power armor.

Well, Ashspren are still helping humans. They haven't bonded Parshmen.

Yes it seems as if Mists and Stormlight act similarly as a generic investiture usable by anyone with invested abilities. Open medallions could be a solution so long as the Rosharan was able to hold onto it. Once bonded surges couldn't be taken from a Scadrian.

Considering that the Fused can't use stormlight, and Radiants can't use voidlight, (with the exception of Venli, as she has a gemheart and connection to Odium via the voidspren), I don't think it works like that.

On the contrary a new Radiant can be made hours after another ones death, a new Metalborn takes at least 15 years to be of use.

Bonding would require entering enemy held territory while being 

A. Obvious

B. Vulnerable

They would be immediately killed off.

And a Bondsmith can remove the bond.

I think it was mentioned that Dustbringers in general were also helping the fused. The were bonded to Humans.

Bronze allomancers would be more likely find nullifying tones to use against their enemies.

1. They don't know how to do it.

2. Singers would actually have the easiest time doing it.

They weren't helping the fused so much as not directly following Dalinar's orders.

Yes, it would be easier for them to find anti-rhythms, but lightweavers could deploy them far more effectively.

I have to partially agree with @Frustration on this. Using metal arts requires snapping, a medallion, or spike. Becoming radiant only needs a bond.

Good point on the bondsmith, but there are metal arts that could do the same.

The ghostbloods are trying to transport Stormlight because it is generic investiture and can fuel any magic system. Metal born would use it like the metal they burn or store and tap.

Your A and B Assumes they start fighting as soon as they arrive on Roshar. so no they wouldn't need to enter enemy territory. Rosharans on Scadrial would soon be helpless not so the other way around.

That's why Navani discovered the anti-tones first? Copper mistings are used to discerning pulses.

So Bronze misting Lightweavers could be very dangerous to any invested being. 

I can accept that Dustbringers are not reliable allies to Dalinar instead of out right against them.

Bronze but yes.

Navani was not the first to do it. Whether it was Gavilar or someone else is unknown.

And while Bronze is good, Singer always here the Rhythms and can instinctively replicate them. No resources required.

Not sure Metal arts produce tones, but Bronze mistings can sense Rosharan tones as pulses.

The Seeker feels pulses, like beats of a drum, emanating from the person burning a metal. The metals are grouped into fast and slow, pushing and pulling, and have their own signature feel.Nov 22, 2020

Even if the metallic arts don't have a specific tone, Preservation and Ruin do.

So, they feel a almost musical beat, or Rhythm?

the pulses of Atium, Lerasium, and Harmonium would be how they are represented. It is on Roshar that shards have tones which a Bronze misting can sense as pulses.

Right though perhaps a little more complex as Vin learned.

Yep. And reversing and playing them would push out all their related investiture.

What do you mean by reversing?  Anti-light is not the reverse of the related light.

It's more like morse code than music. Though that is not a full description. there have been no examples of investiture being pushed out by anything. Even the fabriels and corrupted Sybling didn't push out investiture.

The Anti-Void tone pushed on the Voidlight in Rabonial's gemheart.
