Your Pancakefulness, holy **** that made me laugh.

@Hero: I'm with you. Too much does not add up. I recall a WoB somewhere that they would normally have saved Mare to steal her power for some Inquisitor but at some point changed their minds. Cannot think of why.

Had to prune down a few less convincing things because of the reddit post limit, but I will note one of her fake insanity notes was "I was there"

Oh and once I asked if Paalm had any cameos in the original trilogy and I got a RAFO.
Tue Dec 12, 2017 10:45 pm
I thought about Paalm/Mare, too. It makes sense, other than why the Lord Ruler would care about spying on Kelsier in the first place.

I knew about the allomancy/geode thing already, but there is still something weird there. Mare didn’t arrive at the pits until about 2 weeks after Kelsier did. So what was going on during that time? Why even mention the 2-week delay if there wasn’t something going on there?
Tue Dec 12, 2017 10:42 pm
There's *something* weird, since Brandon responded to my question of 'what is up with her being in the pits' with " (Also, I got your question about Mare a few days ago, and have been chewing on how best to answer. I'm still going to see if I can craft one that says what I want, but I can't promise anything.)" on a different post over a week later, so it seems like he was chewing on what he wanted to say for a while, and there's more to it than meets the eye.

My dumb conspiracy theory about it is that Mare was actually Paalm, but all the evidence for it is circumstantial.

Short version: we don't know anything in specific, and brandon was squirrely last year when I asked about it
Tue Dec 12, 2017 5:58 pm
I assume you're asking because of the atium geodes? I don't know of any WoB regarding Mare and hemalurgy, but the 10th anniversary edition updated the text about atium geodes breaking due to Allomancy. Specifically changed from using Allomancy near the crystals breaks them to using some forms of Allomancy near the crystals breaks them.

Gotcha, thanks for the responses everyone. New question that occurred to me as I’ve been listening to Mistborn on Graphic Audio: Mare. People have theorized that perhaps she was a rare case where her power was hemalurgically stolen but she somehow survived the process, but perhaps it was simpler than that. Could her ability to burn Tin have come from a hemalurgic spike, which the inquisitors simply removed then shipped her off to the pits? Alternatively, could Hathsin-Mare have been a Kandra? Anyone know if we have WoB concerning either of these possibilities (searching Arcanum didn’t reveal anything)?

I also hope he has those available. I need one for reasons.
Tue Dec 12, 2017 4:13 pm
He's had lapel pins for the relevant "Order" of each book so far. I'm hoping he still has a few Bondsmiths to give out when I see him at JordanCon cuz I'll be bummed if my collection fails at 3...
Tue Dec 12, 2017 4:07 pm
Yeah, at the events I've been to, lapel pins were for people in costume, people who came really far away, or people who asked really good questions. Or, as it turns out, for people who stuck around until the event was over and he still had a few left.
Tue Dec 12, 2017 4:06 pm
Ah, I know what those are- Team Sanderson actually sent me a small stack of those to use for the M:HW release party I’m hosting.

He handed out Hoid promo cards for House War. IIRC it could increase the cost of resolving a card by 2 (maybe just 1) of any combination of resources,
Tue Dec 12, 2017 1:55 pm
what little hoid cards would those be? I don't think it's the lapel pins- or at least, I can't imagine he'd be handing out lapel pins to everyone who asked. That sounds pretty pricey.
Tue Dec 12, 2017 12:25 pm
Do the little hoid cards count?
Mon Dec 11, 2017 10:26 pm
I think I saw a pic of a Bondsmith lapel pin.
Mon Dec 11, 2017 4:06 pm
Anyone know if Brandon is handing out any particular oathbringer swag? Like, for Words of Radiance he had the little Szeth cards/punch-out-figures, and for some of the Reckoners releases he had similar cards/punch-outs- has be been doing something similar for Oathbringer?
Mon Dec 11, 2017 2:58 pm
Has anyone done work on the scale of the Shattered Plains? I'm looking through pictures and references but I don't wanna duplicate if someone else has already done it all.
Mon Dec 11, 2017 2:22 pm
@Phantom: We want WoPs. Added the one you just linked.
Sun Dec 10, 2017 2:13 am
@Mac: We briefly considered having a meaningful spoiler policy, then gave up. Maybe next major book release. Spoil away.
