It's been Spoiler City up on this Patreon, and that's not changing anytime soon (can you believe Secret Project #2 is less than a month away??). We are all mostly hunkered down here in 17S HQ, cooking up things both secret and not, and honestly, recovering from all the content Brandon is blasting our way with some face masks and spas. But you are not here for our morning routines, you are here to see pretty art, and this month you are in for a treat!

Follow us after the break for some spoilers for Tress of the Emerald Sea in the form of some gorgeous art!

It's been only a few months since The Lost Metal came out, but there's been so much going on with the Year of Sanderson that it's hard to believe. Time flies like a Coinshot, as they say (they don't say that), and so you've waited long enough to see the art you voted on (assuming you are a patron; if you are not, may we interest you in joining the ranks? Look at what cool stuff those kind patrons make happen).

So let's take a look at it! Spoilers for The Lost Metal below!

On today's news roundup, do you like covers? There are tons of new covers, for Skyward, Mistborn's rerelease, and the Tor edition of Tress. Let's start with Skyward news! Hot off the press, we have a cover reveal for Defiant, the fourth Skyward book, which comes out November 21st, 2023. We also have a synopsis! 

The White Sand Omnibus is here, and so it's time for another episode of Shardcast where we go into extensive detail on things. There's character stuff, lore stuff, talking about the Indiegogo failure, as well as astrophysics and complex cosmere stuff. Oh, and infesting sand! This is a very weird and extremely nerdy episode, even for us.

Shardcast: Aethers

By Chaos, in Shardcast,

It's time we talk about aethers, the last big cosmere magic system! Or is this actually an MCU podcast? A Pinnochio podcast? Maybe it's an ecology and physics podcast. Surprise, it's red spikes all the way down. This episode is both very on the rails and also totally not.

This one is coming to you all the way from September of last year, so apologies for the long wait but we like to give the artists we work with as much time as they need with these commissions - we are under no deadline, and we don't want to impose one either. In this case - and in all other cases - the wait has been worth it, as this illustration turned out beyond great!

Tress of the Emerald Sea is HERE, and over on the Coppermind Wiki we are in crunch mode! The novel dropped on January 1st for Kickstarter backers and today it is now available for anyone to purchase. Between The Lost Metal's release in November and several new books coming in 2023, this is going 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 first (and only) official Coppermind Tress Cup, in which we'll be trying to knock out as many Tress-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 Tress Cup 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 Cosmere fans!

The Coppermind Tress Cup begins NOW! Let's do this!

There was an annual gift exchange tradition in the fandom that went on for several years, and it strangely coincided with our own holiday season. It was known as Secret Sazed, and while this art commission is not involved with this tradition in any way, it is a Sazed piece, and we are revealing it right around the holidays. So it was a secret Sazed, in the sense that... you didn't know it was coming? Look, overabundance of (Christmas) food is the enemy of wit, this as good of an intro you are going to get. Let's talk about the illustration itself.

Spoilers for The Hero of Ages below!

Shardcast: Moonlight's Mentor

By Chaos, in Shardcast,

It's our longest episode ever! If you've read Lost Metal, you know what this episode is about, and there's so so much to discuss. In fact, believe it or not, we probably easily could have talked for two more hours at least on it. In this one, Alyx is a mind-reader and says Realmatic things! We also get talking about the Fused.

Shardcast: Trell

By Jofwu, in Shardcast,

On this episode of Shardcast, we have to finally talk about answers about Trell, which we at last got in The Lost Metal. No spoilers in the description, but if you've read the book, you know what this is about! Big Lost Metal spoilers immediately, and we talk about all sorts of arcane cosmere stuff too.

The Lost Metal, the final Mistborn Era 2 book is out, and you know we have so many full book, spoilery reactions for you this episode of Shardcast! We start with a short spoiler-free section and then go into full spoilers, and it's full cosmere spoilers too! We have so much to say! Also, this has some swanky visual changes for you. It's the end of an era, but beginning of a new one! And don't worry, we barely touched on stuff here, but there is so much analysis still to come!
