Did anything help inspire Navani’s character in tWoK?

Brandon Sanderson

Numerous things. Partially, the fact that there’s a distinct lack of mothers in fantasy fiction. Everybody seems to be an orphan.

Partially, the need for a strong, well-rounded woman of an older, wiser nature to balance out Shallan’s impulsive nature.

And, in part, she was designed because I wanted a Fabrial engineer among the cast, and extrapolated personality from there.

Why didn’t the Parshendi use fire arrows? The bridges are made of wood for Storm’s sake!

Brandon Sanderson

This is a pretty strong hardwoord we’re talking about. Fire arrows worked against slow-moving siege equipment.

But something carried at this speed, then crossed quickly, made of hardwood–the fires wouldn’t have time to get a hold.

@BrandSanderson In M:AoL, will bendalloy’s time dilation result in redshifting of light going in/out of the bubble? #weescience

Brandon Sanderson

I’ve been working on the science of it. Basically, I’ve been treating it as a gravitational time dilation.

But only focused inward, and equally, on those inside the bubble. It’s making my brain hurt a bit, but I think I’ve got it working

I think this means yes to a gravitational redshift. But . . . it gets wacky. Trying to decide just what it would do is tough.
