The Great American Read: Other Worlds with Brandon Sanderson ()
#1 Copy

Questioner [PENDING REVIEW]

Kaladin kind of went back on his Oaths in the second book, right?

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

Yes. He started down that path.

Questioner [PENDING REVIEW]

How could Shallan or Lightweavers go back on the Truths they make? And did Shallan do any of that in Oathbringer?

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

No, the Cryptics... remember, how the spren is viewing this is very important. The Cryptics have an interesting relationship with truth. Harder to break your Oaths in that direction with a Cryptic. Harder to move forward, also, if you're not facing some of these things and interacting with them in the right way. But, while I can conceive a world that it could happen, it'd be really hard to for a Lightweaver to do some of the stuff. Particularly the ones close to Honor, you're gonna end up with more trouble along those lines, let's say.

Questioner [PENDING REVIEW]

So then, what happened with the Lightweavers during the Recreance? Did they break their Oaths?

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

They did break their Oaths. I mean, breaking your Oaths as in "walking away from the first Oath" will still do it, regardless of what Order you are. You can actively say, "I am breaking my Oaths and walking away." Anyone has that option. But you also are holding the life of a spren in your hand.
