Have we met Odium's champion yet?
Is year one on the [Rosharan] calendar related to Vorinism in some way?
I would have to go look. I can't remember. I know it's in there.
Is ReLuur's spike made of Atium?
RAFO. You get a card though. It's not that big of a spoiler, but the answer would bring up questions that are.
Nale seems to be able to sense the Stormlight, even before she uses it, after she eats the roll. Is this an ability of him as a Surgebinder, a Herald, or something external he's doing or using?
If a Radiant brought some infused gems into Shadesmar, could they transfer that Stormlight into the black glass substance that seems to compose Shadesmar?
I'll RAFO that one.
Is Renarin technically Enlightening his visions into precognitive ones?
In Part 2 of Oathbringer, the chapter headings are to Hoid, right, from other [Vessels] I'm assuming. One of them talks about Hoid. They reference to him as holder of the one gem [bearer of the First Gem]. Is that the gem that is then split into Shards perhaps?
RAFO. Mhm. RAFO.
Is Ati Ruin's original Shardholder?
Ohh, good question. I will go ahead and RAFO that.
I have a big theory that someday we are gonna see something more about him.
You will see something more about him for sure! Because Dragonsteel includes-- But that's not what you meant, and I know what you meant.
Okay so, also in Oathbringer, did Wit really speak into Shallan's mind when she was confronting the Heart of the Revel--is that what happened??
Can't you tell me if that's what he did? If that was him?
*teasing sound* Come on. I won't even tell you. You would have gotten similar RAFOs - that does not indicate any yes or no - about stuff in Mistborn that I eventually came around to.
Will Joel become a Rithmatist?
Oh that's totally a RAFO. Here's your RAFO.
I had a question regarding the sixteen Shards... If they are, or when they are reformed to Adonalsium, will it have to be one person holding all sixteen Shards?
That's a RAFO. I'm gonna RAFO that partially because there's not even-- who knows if it can all be recombined.
How does Snapping work now? You said that Sazed changed it.
Uh, RAFO. That is a good question though.
Not even a little hint?
Nah. I don't think so.
Who is Lady Truth?
Well, who do you think Lady Truth is?
Tindwyl is who I hope it is. *long silence* Why is that a secret?
Because there are certain things I am not sure how much more I want to say in the books, or how much things-- So it's not that it needs to be a secret or something big and mysterious is happening, but it's because if I speak now I risk undermining things that I might do and I don't want to risk that even if there's a decent chance that whatever I say won't have anything to do with it. So a lot of times my RAFO's are "I know the answer to this, it's not a big secret, but I am not ready to just pin it down". Does that make sense? You've already pried a couple important things out of me so...
Did the original 16 break Adonalsium with the intent to gain the shards and the power, or was that a happy/unhappy side effect?
Are the Heralds originally from Roshar?
Did Adonalsium (or its Vessel) leave a Cognitive Shadow behind? If so, where is it?
How Hoid has ended up being a Feruchemist? Is it by a method we familiar with (like Hemalurgy) or he has another way to manipulate his sDNA?
Is [Hemalurgy] going to be introduced in other worlds and has Hoid ever used it?
It will be introduced in other worlds; but RAFO on the other one.
Is Shallash/Ash going to be a Dustbringer? (So Dalinar's count can be all 10 orders)
Does the Cognitive anomaly that exists in the Nalthian system orbit the sun, or is it stationary?
I'm going to RAFO that for now because there's some stuff there that I want to deal with. Let's stay away from the Cognitive anomaly for right now. RAFO.
When Kalak sees the ring of Honorblades in the Prelude, he describes them as "flowing in design, inscribed with glyphs and patterns." However, in the main text we encounter two (presumed) blades - Jezrien's and Talenel's, neither of which were included in Kalak's original accounting. The first is explicitly depicted as being devoid of ornamentation, and the second is ambiguous. Were all ten original Honorblades ornamented and inscribed, and if so, what causes the change?
Are we going to see any of the truths that Wit-- that Hoid speaks in [Stormlight 4]?
*slides RAFO card across table*
What happens when you direct a stream of water at the border of a bubble in Alloy of Law Mistborn?
Let's do a RAFO on that.
Tarah. She shows up late in The Way of Kings. Kaladin's fighting his inner wretch, as you call him. And he goes through the list a few times, and then near the end of the book a new name comes up. I'm wondering if she's important or is left out of the first book, or if we're gonna hear more about her in the second.
This is a person that is important to Kaladin. Definitely. From his past, and it is... Yes, a woman who is important to Kaladin. So, it's from his past. You will find out more eventually. Light RAFO.
Unity is capital. Is there a reason for that.
*hands over a RAFO card*
Is that kind of similar to the reason why there are no spren in Shinovar is because the people there so disbelieve them that it creates a negative pressure that keeps them from physical manifestation?
Could you give any insights as to what the Dawnshards are?
Am I gonna get a RAFO?
Nyeaaa it's it's..nyeaa I dunno, do you think? You know what the Dawnshards are right? We haven't talked about that? Ok, I thought we had. Um. We'll RAFO it for now. But good question.
It's an excellent question. And we have not yet talked about that. I was like...answer that, answer that!
I was trying to think of questions that could get me very close to being RAFO'd, but not quite RAFO'd.
Yeah, that was a good one, you were close to not getting RAFO'd, on that. Coz I do want to talk about it at some point.
I feel (strongly) that Hoid might be a conjured being. As he states he started life as words on a page. Either he knows that he's a character in a book or someone wrote a spell and poofed him into existence. (or you have another origin for him that I'm not considering) I just figured I'd ask and see what you thought.
RAFO. (You expected something else?)
If a kandra were to somehow take the form of a dragon, would they notice any differences in anatomy, or is it spot-on impersonation?
I'm going to RAFO that, to leave Dragonsteel for Dragonsteel when we get there.
It seemed like from the story there is a strong connection between the larkin and the ancient lanceryn. Would you be willing to answer whether these are the same species by two names or if there is some evolutionary step between them?
I was a tad vague on purpose, but you're looking at it the right way. It's KIND OF the same species.
Like a pokemon evolution? Most Larkin are charmanders, Chiri-Chiri is a charmeleon, lanceryn are charizard?
Have to RAFO it from here out. I'll get into it eventually, don't worry.
If an individual has a mental sickness, such as multiple personalities, can that affect a Shard's intent if picked up by him or her?
Yes, that is possible.
Is it possible that Autonomy is one such, and has multiple personalities?
This is just from our discussion earlier. So Taravangian… He asks for two things. The capacity to stop what is coming and the capacity to save humankind. And then he gets this weird thing to happen. Is the intelligence and empathy thing because both of those things can't come true at the same time?
That's an excellent question. RAFO!
Let me ask a parallel to that. Are those-- Does the Nightwatcher perceive those as the same boon or two parallel boons?
At the end of Sixth of the Dusk, were those Mistborn space-opera-people that showed up at the end?
Not gonna say. [...] A lot of people have theorized that, but I have remained closed-lipped.
What metal is Nightblood made out of
Is Trell Endowment?
Were Bavadin and Edgli sisters?
How do Bondsmiths use the Dawnshards?
Can Cadmium bubbles be nested if you have multiple Pulsers?
Bonus Question: add in duralumin/nicrosil to the equation.
The effects multiply.
I guess hiring 3-4 Pulsers before something you have to prepare for might be worth it. They create their bubbles one after the other at the same place, and boom, you have days instead of minutes.
Ok, lets calculate. We don't have exact figures for cadmium, but we have for bendalloy: 2 minutes into 15 seconds, that's a ratio of 8. 4 Pulsers mean 84 = 4096 ratio. So 21 second for every day goes by for every day you spend in there.
The outer Pulser burns this 168.75 second's worth of cadmium, the first inner one needs 22.5 minutes, the second inner one needs 3 hours and the innermost needs the 24 hours.
So basically for every day spent in these bubbles you need ~27.5 hours worth of cadmium, depending on how routinely they set up the bubbles one after the other.
Wait, are you mixing up sliding and pulsing? I also think you are nesting your bubbles but not your pulsers, so you are losing a lot of efficiency not to mention practicality.
Tell me if I'm misinterpreting what you're describing, but this is how I'm visualizing it:
I'm saying that you get 4 pulsers huddled together and the one that can open the biggest bubble goes first. Then the next largest one pops his. Then the next. And finally the smallest bubble fires.
In that scenario (unless there is something that prevents this) I picture it like this:
This method, 170 days pass only burning 4 hours worth of cadmium.
Well. I'm gonna do it. Gonna page /u/mistborn and ask: is this possible? Can time bubbles be nested like so and if they can do you truly get this kind of efficiency?
This one is a RAFO. :)
Could you tell me when the Ghostbloods were founded?
Yeah. I’m gonna RAFO that.
You once said Nightblood can do some really freaky things when he is fully consuming Investiture, have we seen Nightblood do that yet?
That is a RAFO. But you will find out...
Is the God Beyond related to “the Beyond” place that was talked about?
We saw with Miles what it was like if you Compounded gold. I was wondering what it would be like if you tried Compounding tin.
So Compounding with tin?
Just what it would be like the experience...
Ehhh… I’ll go ahead and I'm going to RAFO that. Because I want to write it out and see how it looks on the page.
Wit states, "Some men as they age, grow wiser. I am not one of those, for wisdom and I have always been at cross-purpose, and I have yet to learn the tongue in which she speaks." Is Hoid referring to wisdom as a concept?
*Sly smile* RAFO.
The Voidbinding chart has a red ruby with two imprisoned Voidbringers who have no connection to the Voidbinding skills. Is this the because they are imprisoned or are they in need of the other Voidbringers to unleash their powers like the lightnings are trying to illustrate?
Does that mean Rysn is now immortal?
Is a dawnshard a shard along the same lines as odium/ honor or is it a combination of 4 of that type of shard? Or are dawnshards entirely separate?
RAFO on most! But the Dawnshards predate the shattering, so they're something other than traditional Shards. Similar, but distinct in some ways.
The thing with the kandra naming, with two parts. Is that purely a kandra thing, or did it come from the First Generation and the Terris?
Good question, that’s a RAFO.
So, in Oathbringer, you said that Hoid still has a god worshipping him. Can you give some back story to that?
I cannot, I mean I can, but I'm not going to.
It will be revealed later?
Maybe. I plan to get all of this stuff eventually into his memoir when he writes it. Or when I write his memoir for him.
[Is it completely impossible for Allomantic Steel/Iron users to Push/Pull on Aluminum or just very difficult, and a more powerful Allomancer (like TLR or using the Bands of Mourning) could do it?]
Excellent question. I’m glad you’re arguing about that.
Is Handerwym a duralumin misting?
Haha. RAFO. We'll see if I do anything with Handerwym in the future. I'm not sure.
