  1. Answer to TDLR: Some subtle suggestion about Veil sees the colors different as Shallan is done much before. Perhaps in KoW or WoR. Surely Radiant didn't "exist" at that moment. But I don't remember exactly when. So... I don't think show. Thank u.
  2. I am rereading. So, let's say yes. This interlude is really Cryptic (hummm, ha, ha). Thank u
  3. Veil sees the colors 'muted'. (RoW 13) Has Shallan, or Lightwavers, some investment from Nalthis?
  4. In RoW I-5, Lift has an 'old, strange flute' hidden in Urithiru. Is it from Wit? Is it Kaladin's lost flute? Perhaps some other thing?
  5. Vyre, the new name of Moash, is because Vyre is not a singer's name or because it is a more singer's name? Sorry for grammar, I am from Spain.
  6. I'm noted that most knight radiants bond with a spren of the opposite gender, at least in known cases. There are only, as far as I know, two exceptions to this rule: Dalinar - Stormfather Renarin - Glys I have looked for possible reasons for this, with little success. It seems that is an in-world fact, but it could be also a stylistic decision of Sanderson. Some thoughts?
  7. Sorry, I have just sent unwillingly three our four similar posts. Could you delete them but the last I sent?
  8. I'm rereading Stormlight Archive (WoR, I-11, so far)'. I love each Brandon's paragraph. Only a review (I hope it to be constructive). I find difficult to read parshendi POV chapters. I feel the style slow and less "nimble" than chapters with human POV, with so 'attuning', 'humming' and 'speaking to the rhythms'. Perhaps the Spanish translation, where these words are quite longer ('armonizar, 'canturrear' y 'hablar al ritmo', respectively) doesn't help. I had the same feeling the first time I read it. I thought that it was for that the first time I read it, but the second I feel the same. Even more. It is difficult for me to feel empathy for these characters. Things become better in RoW, though. By the way, I can't figure out how all those rythms and songs would be performed in a series or a movie.

  10. A bit of speculation. So there is a single Highstorm travelling around Roshar rather erratically. During the Weeping it must be somewhere in the ocean, stopped. The wiki, based on WoR 86, says that the time between highstorms in a given location depends on the speed of the Highstorm. (I capitalize it for the single Highstorm, and "highstorm" is for the arrival of the Highstorm to some given place). But this should imply that after a long time without highstorms, the next one should last longer because it is moving slower. Is that the case? There seems to be no evident clue about the shape of the Highstorm. Perhaps it is like a 'moving meridian', since it reaches Herdaz and Thaylen equally. If it is the case poles would be under it eternally. The Highstorm is somehow 'rechaged' at some place between Aimia and the East of the continent, they call it 'the Origin'). (Perhaps the Dawnshard is involved?)
  11. I have read somewhere that Wikim likes math. Perhaps he meant a math problem, but I doubt it.
  12. At the end of WoK I-2, Wikim calls his brother and tells him that they (the two brothers, I guess) have a big problem. I have read the four main books, and the two novellas, too. I have searched at arcanum, forum and coppermind, and other sites as well. But I haven't the slightest of what storms he wants.
  13. Should they go from East to West or the other way around? What happens at the poles?
  14. In WoK 28, Dalinar's mother is mentioned, with a bit of information. (A couple of lines). Just in case if someone wants to add her. Or at least, mention her in Dalinar's page. I prefer to not mess with the code.
  15. The economy in Roshar is based on gems. But there is no mention, as far I remember, to mining. Well, there are emeralds in chasmfiends, but I don't know where diamonds, rubies, etc can be found. And why are there so many gems that a beer costs a small diamond? Moreover, if diamonds in Roshar are so cheap, there should be tons of coal, shouldn't it? Then, why is the expensive wood is used to make fire? Is all the steel made by soulcasting? If not, coal is known... Where are the mines? If yes, how do they know what steel is to start? Is there a reason or it is just fantasy? What do you think?
