Questioner 1 [PENDING REVIEW]

Can you tell us about Transportation? Is it like gates from Wheel of Time

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

Oh, Elsecalling? No. But-- but yes. 

Questioner 1 [PENDING REVIEW]

*laughter* I meant, like, the whole-- Just the Surge?

Questioner 2 [PENDING REVIEW]

Does it go to the Cognitive Realm, is that all it does? 

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

It is the power by which they created the Oathgates... So, there is a little more to it than that. But yes, it's basically-- yeah.

Did humans come to Roshar through Shadesmar?

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

It is technology or magic closer to how the Oathgates work. But it was like that. It's not canon but right now that's what I have. It's not canon because there are certain things I have to work out before that can work...

By the way I'll just say to the tape recording that I haven't canonized, like for instance if they traveled to Shadesmar to get to Shinovar from Ashyn. Right now I have that not being via Shadesmar, but the mechanics of that might not work out, and I might have to default to Shadesmar. So there's certain things, you'll see, where I say, "This isn't the canon answer, it's where I have things right now."

Overlord Jebus [PENDING REVIEW]

So Urithiru might end up being a spaceship after all.

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

It's not that. Right now I have them using something closer to Oathgating, but it opens up a huge can of worms, when I'm not requiring direct-- When I'm sending through Spiritual Realm it opens up cans of worms, and I have to just make sure the mechanics on that are tight before I do it.
