Shardcast: The Grand Apparatus! Dragonsteel 2023 WoBs Part 2


Today on our eternal string of Words of Brandon episodes, we are continuing to talk about what happened from Dragonsteel 2023. And in this case we learn about the GRAND APPARATUS and a lot of WoBs about Hoid's dating life. Also, there's a legitimately serious Stick discussion. Yes, really.

This episode we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Alyx (Feather), Evgeni (Argent), and Joshua (jofwu)!

Our thumbnail today is not the Grand Apparatus, but actually Cybertron by Jaime Jasso: https://www.artstation.com/artwork/4rvn1

56:04: Argent: "I guess Hoid just... got better? "

Have you read the ending scene of Dragonsteel Prime?  While it's of dubious canonicity, it does show that Hoid's ability to "just get better" is for all intents and purposes limitless.
