Shardcast: Wind and Truth and Find Out! - December 2023 Spoiler Stream Words of Brandon


Brandon held a spoiler livestream for Koloss Head Munching Day 2023 (his birthday). While a lot of questions are apparently going to be answered in book 5 of The Stormlight Archive, Wind and Truth, there still was plenty to talk about dragons, specific Mistborn Era 2 details, and Plato's allegory of the cave!

This episode we have Eric (Chaos), Evgeni (Argent), Shannon (Grey), Joshua (jofwu), and Ene (AonEne).

My guess about the dragons is that they’re “amphibian” meaning they start as non-fain (humanlike) in childhood, like tadpoles in water, and then grow up into fain dragon form like frogs coming up on land.
