Airsick Lowlanders

I don’t know if this has been said before, but I saw that Roshar has a higher level of oxygen than normal Cosmere planets, so that means that everyone but the Horneaters could literally be airsick lowlanders.

Ditto, made the same connection. In Arcanum Unbounded they mention that fire reacts unexpectedly as well which is another reason stormlight is used more frequently than torches/lanterns.

I remember world-building about 16 years ago and trying to come up with various reasons for super-sized chitinous creatures. I just decided that they had an endo and an exo skeleton on my old world to support their size along with, you got it, more oxygen. Funny thing, before I had ever heard of GRRM I had a massive walled off section in the middle of an industrial plains/hills type continent that was always winter and full of undead. I found the concept of undead in winter to be quite the brutal double-whammy.
