How does the Nalthis year compare to normal years?

Brandon Sanderson

Uh, that's a PAFO. That's a Peter and find out. If you know much of orbits, and things like this, you will know that most of them have to be pretty close because of the nature of Goldilocks zones and things like this. But they all--

Zas678

Yeah. Yeah. They all have to be "year-ish", but the exact "ish" is going to be...

Brandon Sanderson

Yes. Mhm.

Footnote: Brandon's comment about the period of orbits in the Goldilocks zone is incorrect.

yurisses [PENDING REVIEW]

Can you tell us a little bit about what Hoid was up to in Terris in The Well of Ascension?

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

He was hunting for the Well of Ascension.

yurisses [PENDING REVIEW]

In the new continuity, he already knew where the Well was, because he used it to come back to--

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

Right, we changed the continuity, didn't we. Yeah. Oh boy. We came up with an explanation of this, because when we wrote the book-- Yeah, why don't you send me an email on that one. Now that I have the conversation with Peter, he brought that one up when I finally got around to Secret History. That was one of our big casualties. What did I come up with? I think he was just really, really-- I will have to-- because I canonzied it to Peter. We're gonna have to go to Peter and say "What's in the wiki now?" Yeah, that was one of the big casualties, and the fact that I couldn't get Kelsier to one of the places where I had left foreshadowing for him to speak in someone's head, and I can't remember what that one was, either.

yurisses [PENDING REVIEW]

Oh, that one was Sazed, you said it was his imagination.

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

Yeah, I had to make that his imagination. Because I just couldn't get people where they needed to go. This is the problem with writing an outline, then writing a book, and then writing another book so many years later. Certain things, we just can't work into the continuity. Write us an email, we'll get you the official continuity for that one. Because Peter did nail me down when we were working on the book.

darkanimereal1 (paraphrased)

Did Taravangian go to see the Nightwatcher before or after Gavilar's assassination?

Brandon Sanderson (paraphrased)

Um, oh man. I'm going to have to look at my timeline. I believe it's before, but I can't guarantee I'm right, because these things are all happening around the same time.

darkanimereal1 (paraphrased)

Because he says that Gavilar confided in him the night of.

Brandon Sanderson (paraphrased)

Ooooh, you're right. Nope, it's after. It is after. You can send that question to Peter so we can confirm it. There might be something I'm forgetting about Taravangian.

little wilson

Which eye did Gaz lose?

Brandon Sanderson

Which eye did Gaz lose? Did I go back and forth on that?

little wilson

I have no idea.

Brandon Sanderson

Okay, that's a Peter. I thought it was the left eye but if i did it wrong… It's entirely possible. I have no idea. It's in my notes.

little wilson

How did he lose it?

Brandon Sanderson

Well that is a RAFO! That is definitely a RAFO.

Kurkistan [PENDING REVIEW]

When time bubbles overlap, is it multiplicative or additive? *laughter*

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

...It should be a-- whew.

Kurkistan [PENDING REVIEW]

Should I ask Peter?

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

Yeah ask Peter. We talked it all over. I'm gonna get the wrong one. I think it's additive, in fact I'm pretty sure it's additive. But let's ask Peter.

Questioner [PENDING REVIEW]

Now that jet lag is a thing in Roshar, what is the time difference between Shinovar and the Shattered Plains.

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

I'm gonna do what I call a PAFO, which is: my assistant Peter is the one who tracks all of that. I have offloaded that to him. I used to keep all that stuff in my brain, but I just don't have space. Ask Peter.

Kurkistan

So when that cork [in The Bands of Mourning] was thrown above the train, if the cork had been thrown by someone who was standing besides the train, what would have happened when the bubble hit [the cork]? So the bubble's moving at 60mph and the cork [is not moving laterally relative to the bubble] and gets hit by a bubble...

Brandon Sanderson

Right. Right right right... So... this one's complicated. Let me see if I can... So anything that touches the bubble will immediately be lodged into the bubble, and be hit by that... So say you throw something up, the bubble hits it, is what you're asking?

Kurkistan

Yeah.

Brandon Sanderson

But it does not have momentum the same as the thing? So it would probably be in the bubble for a short time.

Kurkistan

So if I threw the cork straight, and then the bubble came from the right, the cork would shift to the right within the bubble as the bubble thought it was moving or something? So the bubble thinks the cork is travelling like 60mph North, the cork thinks it's not moving at all... So does the cork move the opposite direction of the bubble or something?

Brandon Sanderson

Ask Peter the math on that one, and I'll have him run the math. That one's kind of... it's kind of like the time travel train experiment stuff, with the flags and things. So let's go ahead and PAFO that one.
