#2 Copy

gpmushu (paraphrased)

Do highstorms get weaker as they move west because of normal meteorological reasons the same way a hurricane gets weaker over land or is it because they slowly drain investiture as they infuse spheres over the whole continent?

Brandon Sanderson (paraphrased)

Both. He said that anything like that will be affected by both normal science as well as the magic, but then he added that the highstorms are a natural occurring phenomenon that were on the planet before stuff started going down.

#3 Copy

gpmushu (paraphrased)

Has the Thrill existed longer than the Death Rattles or have they both been occurring for about the same period of time?

Brandon Sanderson (paraphrased)

The Thrill and the Death Rattles started around the same time, but the locations for the two fluctuate and have been since they appeared.

#6 Copy

tganchero (paraphrased)

(Brandon mentioned changing Kaladin's plot so that he chose the "hard" path) What was the hard path?

Brandon Sanderson (paraphrased)

Kaladin initially accepted the shardblade and plate in the first book, and the rest of the book was about him fighting with them. Really boring.

#7 Copy

tganchero (paraphrased)

Did the mistress from the interlude in book 1 destroy the Shalash statue on the night of Gavilar's death?

Brandon Sanderson (paraphrased)

Yes, and also all the other ones that we've seen, including the one in Shallan's vision in Words of Radiance.

tganchero (paraphrased)

Is the mistress Shalash?

Brandon Sanderson (paraphrased)

RAFO.

#9 Copy

Brandon Sanderson (paraphrased)

He said that at one point Shallan may have said all the oaths for her order (or may have been capable of saying all of the oaths by the end of the book) but has since regressed due to "memory loss/repression."
