Shardcast: March/April Words of Brandon and JordanCon Recap


Today we are catching up on some Words of Brandon from earlier this year in March and April. There was an Orem signing in March and FanX in April that we grind through, and hey, guess what, we did it in a SINGLE EPISODE. Efficiency! In addition, this is Feather's first episode she has edited, and let me tell you, what she did at the ending was amazing! 

We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), and Ben (Overlord Jebus). Send your Who's That Cosmere Characters to [email protected]

Nightblood not finding Nale evil makes sense to me. I got the impression in Warbreaker that the test, whatever it actually evaluates, is heavily based on the emotions people feel when they pick him up. And Nale doesn't really have emotions anymore for Nightblood to find bad.

Perhaps Hoid’s hair is white because whatever happened to him around the time of the Shattering gave him some weird form of Investiture, and in addition to giving him all the weirdness about not being able to die/kill anyone also distorted his physical appearance. And maybe The Girl Who Looked Up underwent a similarly drastic flood of strange Investiture and it altered her hair too.

I am not sure what event would be strong enough to do this to her, but there is a lot of strange things about her story as well as things we don’t know about Rosharan history.

"Hi, I'm @Chaos!"

- @Argent slyly looks thinking, "Oh that's cute, you think you're chaos."

 

Love these WoB episodes! Great job, guys.

If I mess with the intro every time, is it really messing with the intro, or am I just sticking to the script?

My personal theory is that she is his daughter, although I have nothing to back it up besides the fact that they both have white hair.

I could see that.

So what's the trivial connection to Ruin? That Ruin destroys and Nightblood consumes?

What is Nightblood made of? And who might know something about metal alloys and Investiture?

The connection between Nightblood and Ruin is that Nighblood is made of an Atium alloy.

Great to see the cameras. It really helps, surprisingly enough.

We were referring to this WoB.

The joke about @Overlord Jebus saying "andolasiaum" just made me think of the fictional "Andalasia" from the Disney movie "Enchanted" and now both my and my children's fantasy worlds have collided.

I may never recover.
