Around the Cosmere for June 16th


Welcome back to Around the Cosmere, where we occasionally talk round of the news. It's been a while, but we're back on Hoid's Shadesmar Doomship Zeppelin (totally a real thing), and he's just messy, so we were delayed. That's totally what happened.

First things first, Brandon has answered questions about The Way of Kings on Tor.com. Some are writing related, and not much cosmere, but we did discover there have been several Rosharan worldhoppers we have already met. Pretty neat!

Interesting Theoretical Discussions

We had two very interesting topics about Investiture and its role. One is about its possible caustic nature, by Terisen, and Moogle continued the discussion with his topic on Investiture consuming other Investiture.

Kurkistan also summarized everything we know about his most favorite subject: time bubbles.

Here's also a ludicrously long post classifying the cosmere magic systems, complete with a totally unnecessary 3D plot you can move around!

And want a head-scratching puzzle? Discuss what is apparently the "biggest RAFO" yet!

Fun Stuff

It looks like this should have gone under the previous heading, yes? It's a totally rational Radiant and Voidbinding theory by Tempus, but then… Well, let's just say we learn a lot about the Voidbringers, Hoid, and the Brawny Man in the discussion there.

Speaking of Stormlight Archive and the Knights Radiant, what Radiant oath would you swear? Or, perhaps more hilarious, what Radiant oath would you never swear? And what Order would you belong to?

And prepare yourself for the worst Stormlight pun that has ever existed.

Other Things and Site Stuff

In other news, Moogle has been promoted to the moderator team. You've surely seen him in the book discussions and theories, so give him a warm welcome!

If you haven't been on the site recently, then something might surprise you: social groups, clans, and guilds are actually things now. There are so many for you to choose from, but you know which one you truly want to be in, of course. There may also be a new thing coming related to social groups soon, too…

And you might be wondering, why did I storming link a picture of Google Maps as the article image? Well Aether made an awesome thread wondering where Sharders live, and then Quitecontrary made a map out of it. It is pretty sweet. See the full map here! Let's get more pins up there!

On the forum side of things, the forum layout now has a non-cosmere category, and the mobile front page of the site sucks a lot less.

That's for Around the Cosmere for now. Just because Splintercast has ended doesn't mean that you will be starved on content. There will be brand-new and returning main page segments coming your way. Stay tuned!

In my typically unobservant fashion I didn't notice Moogle's promotion until I'd seen his yellow member link. Congratulations Moogle! :D

Thanks for the well-wishes! I'll do my best to rule with a tyrannical fist.
