We interrupt your regularly scheduled gay programming to deliver you a-- hmm, there sure are a lot of rainbows in this piece too... but that can't be right, this is coming from May, not June... Well, Endowment works in mysterious ways, so we'll work with what we've got.
 
Spoilers for the ending of Warbreaker!

Well, we've run out of Pride (the month) but not out of pride (for the wonderful artists in this fandom), so let's see what Santa has in store for us this time, shall we?

(but first, a quick informative copy-paste from an earlier post)
Those of you who follow us on Twitter may have seen that we put out a tweet looking for queer fanartists to take a stab at this round of Pride commissions, so first of all, if you are looking for some more artists to follow and support, there's several in that tweet's replies, go take a look! (There's also a considerable number of fake accounts who steal other people's art, so if blocking or reporting accounts is something that sounds like fun to you, there's some of that too!)

June is trickling away but we can squeeze in a quick art reveal

Those of you who follow us on Twitter may have seen that we put out a tweet looking for queer fanartists to take a stab at this round of Pride commissions, so first of all, if you are looking for some more artists to follow and support, there's several in that tweet's replies, go take a look! (There's also a considerable number of fake accounts who steal other people's art, so if blocking or reporting accounts is something that sounds like fun to you, there's some of that too!)

So with that out of the way, what do we have for you today?

Want to support some indie authors that hang out on this very forum (down in the Reading Excuses subforum, most often)? Check out the Space Wizard Science Fantasy Year 2 Kickstarter! There are 12 new books coming from this indie small press, run by one of the contributors, and with stories by many others! And if you want to support something for Pride Month, all these titles have queer and inclusive elements.

We also have a very special announcement: Seanan McGuire is contributing a story for the Lofty Mountains anthology we’re publishing this year! So if you’re a fan, be sure to check that one out.

Welcome to Diceborn: Secrets in Stained Glass, a brand new 5-episode miniseries set in the days of the Final Empire! Five young nobles are invited for a weekend of festivities at House Elariel’s newly reconstructed lakeside manor, a chance for dancing, dalliances, and diversions. But secrets abound in the complicated courts of the Great Houses, some more dangerous than others…

Aah, summer is finally rising over the horizon, the US enjoys a long weekend, students are getting ready to relax during their summer break... but we, we do not rest. Having wrapped up the March batch of commissions, it is time for the April piece (May is in progress), and boy is it a good one!
 
Spoilers for The Lost Metal below!

Are we making these weekly? Who knows. But it's time for another Lost Metal (March) art commission, this one dedicated to everyone's favorite gunslinging Coinshot & rude Bloodmaker dynamic duo - Dumad and Getruda!

You know the drill, follow us after the break for the complete illustration!

The Frugal Wizard's Handbook for Surviving Medieval England is HERE, and over on the Coppermind Wiki we are back in action! The novel dropped on April 1st for Kickstarter backers and today it is now available for anyone to purchase. We've been hit with two cosmere releases over the last six months, and two more are coming in 2023, so this will continue to be a busy year for the wiki. And we need your help! Veteran editors and newbies are all appreciated!

We're kicking off the official Frugal Wiki's Tournament for Surviving the Year of Sanderson, in which we'll be trying to knock out as many Frugal Wizard-related updates as possible. This competition will run for one month--starting today. You can find the list of objectives here. Each objective has been assigned a point value based on how difficult we feel it will be. The person with the most points at the end of the competition is the winner! The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners will receive a one-time-only Frugal Wiki Wizard Award to show off on their user page! And that's to say nothing of the self-satisfaction I can guarantee as well as the undying gratitude of countless Sanderson fans!

The tournament begins NOW! Let's do this!

Hello, hello! 

As many of you likely know, a key perk of the 17th Shard Patreon are the monthly art commissions - we take a good chunk of the money our supporters graciously donate to us, and invest (heh, Invest) them right back into the community in the form of fanart we commission from artists from the fandom. And, since we got our our final 2022 commission just a few days ago, it's once again time to take a brief look back, a quick stroll down Memory Lane, and enjoy all the gorgeous art this awesome and wholesome community has made possible. As always, thank you for being a part of this crazy ride, and double thank you to those of you who are specifically making us keep this going with your hard-earned clips, boxings, and spheres. We commissioned 22 full illustrations (plus a Discord emoji and a Shardcast thumbnail) costing a total of nearly $5,000, and almost none of them would've happened without your support!

The previews below the break include scenes from the Skyward Flight novellas, Warbreaker, all of Stormlight, all of Mistborn, including The Lost Metal, and Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell. If you haven't read some of these books, maybe don't look closely into the previews :) Links to the full images will be behind spoiler tags, however, so you can pick and choose which ones to take a(nother) closer look at.
