On the context of Scadrial to Ruin. I know they say "all metal" is blindingly bright like that, but do we know that's confirmed? I just wonder if anyone knows of a time that something which we know isn't one of the allomantic metals glowed brightly. Cuz... like you say, silver isn't the key to accessing any Investiture on Scadrial. Nor lead. So, would they glow anyway?

Which shards? Which planet(s)? Context? I don't think we have any reason to believe that metal is blinding to shards on any planets other than scadrial, and I suspect that on scadrial it has more to do with the fact that metal is the key to accessing investiture than that it's metal itself. On Rodger, I bet that gemstones are blinding and metal is not.

Does silver blind shards?

The rules themselves are insultingly simple, UNTIL it comes time for scoring. I just trust that my app knows what it's doing when counting the score because it's over my head. As best as I can tell, scoring in Go is kind of like checkmate in chess, in that it ends once the end is inevitable, except is chess "the end" (aka, killing the king) is one move away, and in Go "the end" is the inevitable outcome of a half dozen different places on the board each with multiple different paths that will all lead to the same inevitable result. And somehow you're supposed to just see that and go "yeah, okay, that area of the board is worth 14 points for you, even though I have a dozen stones there." :-?

Posted my Warbreaker question in the relevant thread. He was shocking direct with the answer.

The rules themselves are insultingly simple, if that's any help. It's the whole "being good at it" and "knowing basic patterns to look out for" that trips you up...

Any time I remember my attempts at reading Wheel of Time I remember one scene where a woman was described looking at another woman "exactly the way a thief looks at a chicken he planned to steal, wondering what it would taste like." One day, I vow I will understand what that incredibly specific facial expression looks like.

Yup, Go's hard. I think I've won... once(?) against anyone who wasn't also a complete novice.

*a reread of Wheel of Time, and they keep talking about the game of Stones and how your skill at it is an indication of your skill at the game of houses and/or warfare, and I looked it up and apparently it's based on Go. So I decided to download an app and teach myself Go. All I can say is that if your skill at Stones is an indication of your political/military skill, then if I had been put in charge of the Janitorial department of the Winespring Inn, then Emon's field would have been razed and the dragon reborn slain before he was 6 years old and the whole world would have been consumed by darkness. I'm that bad and Go.

My Warbreaker (with my personalized answer) got to my Hub yesterday. Even though I have to work this federal holiday, the postal service does not, so tomorrow at the earliest.

It looks like Phantom may have access to a WoB I don't, so I'll use that as an excuse to join the conversation and maybe drop a link or two...

Oh, cool. I didn't actually read it, people talking about time bubbles just make my head spin.

Mayhaps... *starts taking a look*. At first glance it looks like Phantom might be on the case already. Thanks for the heads-up.
