Honor + Odium = Prejudice and Oppression. We've certainly seen that outcome plenty of times in human history, unfortunately. So the pairing doesn't surprise me.

Hrm, his answer wasn't "what would honor pick as its best match," it was, "which shard would be most likely to take odium." So, Dominion might be closer to Honor. Honor is incredibly subjective, however. The Alethi honor those who kill. If you asked the Shin, they'd likely say Honor was closest to Cultivation, since they revere farmers. A Windrunner might say Honor is closest to Preservation, the ultimate protector.

Hmm. It's still a bit surprising to me - I definitely think Honor has a darker side (at least potentially, may depend on the Vessel), but I would expect that to play better with Dominion than Odium. I'd expect Odium to be against any kind of social *order*, even an arbitrary one, in favor of "war of all against all". Hmmm... maybe Odium's Intent is different than I'd expect...

It makes a degree of sense. Historically, "honor" is just a way to put one class of people over another.

Interesting. If it weren't for the personalities of the vessels, Odium and Honor would have been a good natural match for combining shards

I watched the first few minutes of glitch before deciding I wasn't in the mood for it whether it was good or not.

yeaaaaah... just got a "I can't remember where it was and I can't find it again, but I'm 100% sure that I saw it and that I'm remembering it verbatim, so you should just trust me."

Has anyone been keeping up with the Arcanum Unbounded signing lines? Someone just told me (but couldn't tell me where he/she read it) that Shardplate is confirmed as Tanavastium.

Anyone (Australian or not) watch a show called Glitch? Does it get any better? About 15 minutes into the second episode and it's unwatchably bad, which is too bad cuz it seems like it could be cool.

@Phantom: I had forgotten that it's specifically stated that people HAVE figured it out before. So not as hard as Seeking Feruchemy or shielding other people from Emotional Allomancy with Copper, but still, I think, beyond what "normal savants" are expected to have. I think the issue is that it probably takes rather /specific/ practice that most people don't think to pursue - not just using iron/steel a lot in general, or even precision in general: focusing on using it /as a sense'.

"It's possible" doesn't automatically lead to "isn't that hard to learn." Surgery is possible. Rocketry is possible. Figure skating is possible. Yet shockingly, a small percentage of those who can, do.

It seems like inquisivision isn't that hard to learn "The thing is, any Allomancer with access to iron or steel could learn to do this. Some have figured it out, in the past, but in current times, nobody–at least, nobody the heroes know–is aware of this. Except, of course, for Marsh. And he chose not to share it." Maybe the issue is that you need to focus on training your precision rather than power, and most people don't try that?

Would the five other explosions happening at once throw off the aim?

...I don't actually know how guns work and I assumed there was more to it. That is an excellent point, Hero.

Heck, just pull hard on the primers. Either the bullets fire or it rips the gun out of their hands. Of course, if it's the first then you'll probably have one bullet shooting your way.

Kad, had a Lurcher thought. Tug on someone's gun lightly so that they grip it and brace, then Pull *hard* on the primers. Make six bullets explode at once.

I think Inquisivision is a really really difficult/rare thing to get non-Hemalurgically, itdoesn't necessarily come with savantism. Probably more on the level of using bronze to Seek Feruchemy - possible, but it's not clear that anyone ever figured it out.

She uses iron just to open doors in her house. I imagine she'd be more of a savant than Wax, and there is the one implication that she can discern types of metal.

I'd be more surprised if Ranette ever gets a POV and doesn't have it.
