Here's something interesting about Vasher's history pre-nightblood - we know somehing about how he found out about roshar! "He uses Stormlight. One of the reasons-- In fact one of the primary reasons he's on Roshar is because Stormlight is so much easier to come by than Breath. And in fact researching about things like this is one of the reasons he discovered Roshar in the first place. "

It's one of those things I've grown so used to everyone knowing that when someone asks me to prove it I can't find it. The quote is almost a decade old. There might be others.

Ne'ermind, found it. Man that was obscure.

::kurk-signal:: I cannot seem to find the WoB saying that magic shows up when a Shard invests, that Shards don't get to choose how the magic works.

Hrm. I have thoughts but they are Oathbringer spoilers. And other thoughts but they are secret history spoilers. Is Secret History okay for chatbox?

so, magic speculation: cognitive beads will gradually drift towards the location of the object in the real world. It seems like it'd be pretty easy to turn that into a tracking device, by grabbing a bead off an object and putting it in a petri dish to use as a compass

I just found a problem of similar scope in oathbringer, posted to reddit ... e_problem/

Huh, I think I found a typo/continuity error in Warbreaker. A quick glance at the Shard suggests there isn't a typo thread. Should I just ping Peter on Reddit? Any other ideas?

Odd, parts of that look familiar but I don't remember the Announcer being made-up. Thank you for the reminder, Phantom!

That’s right. Thanks.

Do we have any WoB on who the REAL Announcer from the Terris prophecies was, since we know it wasn’t Sazed?

I mean, draining color and draining breath aren't the same thing, so I'm not sure draining color and adding breaths are opposite... do you mean a gemstone within a Heightened aura? I'll confess I'm still a little fuzzy on how that works. Is the color actually changing, or just peoples perceptions? What are they correcting to? Does everything red-shaded tend towards "pure red" or towards one of the nearby "steps"? How far apart are any two "steps" of red, anyway? @Phan: Too bad for your pet theory, though I think it's best for Vasher it's not the case; imagine having to live a life of religious austerity and needing to explain to your superiors why you need to burn a $20 every week, and then get rid of your pile of denatured gemstones without anyone finding them and asking what on earth you are doing to your poor money...

I'm still a little disappointed that my pet theory of 'vasher drinks stormlight out of gems by slurping the color out of them, because the color is the thing that the stormlight is attached to' got shot down

Brandon seems to be waffling about whether or not polestones could conceivably hold stormlight if they got color drained (two from this signing: ) - they might either sort of suck, or just not work at all, but if draining color ruins things by making them suck, maybe adding Breath will perfect the color to the ideal one needed to hold it, so I think that's a very firm 'maybe?'
Mon Jan 08, 2018 3:16 am
Is that a specific property of polestones? Or does it mean Breath can be used to cause any object to generate any type of energy, not just kinetic? The implications are fascinating!

Cool! Thanks Phantom!

you can make gemstones glow with breath! ... rty/#e8138

@mac: mind sharing a link to this awakening WoB you’re talking about? I’m very curious. ;)
Sun Jan 07, 2018 2:22 pm
And if you're right about what that WoB implies, wow, Awakening just got a massive upgrade!
Sun Jan 07, 2018 12:16 pm
Phantom: Thank you for that citation on Reddit! I really do need to go over all the release party WoBs now that the arcanum has them up and my holiday craziness is over. I've mised a lot!
Sun Jan 07, 2018 12:16 pm
@Hero: Get well soon buddy!
Sun Jan 07, 2018 6:36 am
Best of luck, man!
Sat Jan 06, 2018 3:07 pm
Yep! Kind of like in a real game of Codenames where your teammate can just start touching cards without asking for your input. ;) It’s not ideal, but I don’t think we’ll see too much of that going on. And if we do then we’ll change up the rules to deal with it.
