Shardcast: Moash

By Chaos, in Shardcast,

This week on Shardcast, we're talking about everyone's favorite character: Moash. Has any other character inspired such emotion throughout the fandom as that wayward-est member of Bridge Four? We're taking a deep dive into Moash's character, with plenty of hot takes on what role he serves in the narrative, where we think he might go after Rhythm of War (RoW spoiler warning!), the most important question: Should Moash be redeemed, or should he die very horribly in a very hot fire? Stay tuned to find out. 

The last news update wasn't even a week ago, was it? Sanderson pays no heed to our mortal efforts to keep up with what he's working on!

Between Brandon's latest weekly update and a recent Reddit post we got some fresh news on the status of The Lost Metal--the fourth and final Era 2 Mistborn book--as well as a glimpse at Brandon's publication schedule over the next 8 years. The weekly update also covered preliminary plans for an art book, along with an invitation to make your opinion heard in a survey. Don't be left out! Lastly, we've got a small but exciting update for the TWoK Kickstarter.

We've got another news roundup, with some news on Brandon’s writing progress on Skyward 3 as well as The Lost Metal, the fulfillment of The Way of Kings Kickstarter, and future publications of Brandon’s works in other formats. A lot of this info comes from Brandon’s four most recent weekly updates (see his Youtube to watch them). Brandon also participated in another spoiler free livestream. You can check out the recording of the stream here, and our summaries of a few of the questions asked on Arcanum. It looks like the next spoilery livestream is tentatively scheduled for June, with regular non-spoiler streams taking place the first week every month going forward. For even more detail on the new info from these weekly updates, read on below!

Hey everyone, earlier this month you voted on our next Coppermind Art piece and it is officially ready to share! Your choice was a scene from Part 1 of Rhythm of War where Renarin saves Kaladin from Moash. We reached out to rspixart (who fans of the podcast may remember as the artist for the glorious depictions of Rlain and Renarin we fawned over  in our Rlainarin/Corrupted Truthwatcher episodes earlier this year). Unsurprisingly, she did an amazing job and we are so glad to be able to share it with you!

Hey everyone! The Shardcast gang will be doing another stream on our YouTube channel on Sunday, March 21st, at 10am Pacific. We'll answer questions and interact with you in chat, so we hope to see you there! Of course, if you can't make it, the VOD will be on YouTube as well. It's been pretty fun streaming and talking with you all so far!

Badali Jewelry makes fantastic licensed jewelry for a bunch of different fantasy series, and they make excellent Brandon Sanderson related jewelry. This week, not only are they holding a spring sale, but they also have new cosmere items in their store! They are finally selling Truthwatcher and Stoneward glyphs, which were missing before for whatever reason. And, there's a spring sale code for you, valid through this Sunday.

Last time, we talked about the Rhythm of War Part One epigraphs and the fabrials details there (which you can check out here: https://youtu.be/96lCEbKyiSA ). This time we are going deep into the new things we've learned in Dawnshard and Rhythm of War, and boy. There is a lot. We get solidly into the weeds here on mechanics, aluminum, and the ancient fabrials.

Hey everyone, guess what! Our very first Coppermind Commission is ready to be revealed. After our patrons voted last month to see the interior of the honorspren stronghold, Lasting Integrity, we reached out to friend of Shardcast, Connor Chamberlain. And as always, he knocked it out of the park. 

Brandon kicked off a new series of "Weekly Update" videos on his YouTube channel today. It's not long, so we recommend checking it out! But if you're in a hurry or otherwise unable to watch, we'll summarize it below.

We've got some fresh news on upcoming Skyward books and their current status, some updates on Brandon's upcoming plans, and lastly some announcements about the state of the Tenth Anniversary Way of Kings Kickstarter!

It's been a hot minute since we've last consolidated Brandon related news, so there's a bunch of stuff to talk about. Between Skyward 3 draft #3 being done, the Mistborn: House War game on Tabletop Simulator, and an art contest by Brandon's Spanish publisher, a lot of other things have happened, so read on to learn more!
