Shardcast: Dragon-Lift Theory is Dead! - Dragonsteel 2023 WoBs Part 1


Oh my goodness, everyone. We have SO many Words of Brandon episodes ahead of you. We're going out of order, with the Dragonsteel 2023 Spoiler Q&A! And sorry Lift-dragon enjoyers, that theory is dead! We also talk about a surprising amount of Warbreaker stuff, Zane, Mistborn: Birthright, and Alyx solves Silverlight. Some of those are even vaguely relevant to what we are talking about and not just nonsense.

This episode we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Alyx (Feather), Evgeni (Argent), and David (Windrunner)! Thanks, Alyx, for being a champ with our nonsense.

I was introduced to the Lift dragon theory at a panel during Dragonsteel Con and got super invested in it, then had my hopes very quickly dashed by the Q&A panel later in the con 🥲

Alyx: For those of you unaware of Mistborn: Birthright

David: Who's unaware?!?


I remember 16! I love in MB:SH when Leras is so pleased with himself that he hid the number 16 in the snapping when absolutely no one born on Scadrial would know the significance thus completely defeating the purpose he was using it for.
