#4 Copy

Pagerunner

When you tap the nicrosil portion of a medallion, will it run out over time? Or is it like a coppermind, where something discrete is taken, used, and returned?

Brandon Sanderson

Good question! Like a coppermind.

#5 Copy

Pagerunner

Khriss says there was Investiture on Threnody prior to Odium and Ambition's battle. Was that Investiture of Ambition?

Brandon Sanderson

RAFO!

#6 Copy

Pagerunner

Are the Aethers from one of the Shards that we know? Or are they of a Shard we haven't learned about?

Brandon Sanderson

Right now they are pre-Shattering.

But I will probably change that.

#7 Copy

Pagerunner

Can you hint at a form of Selish magic we haven't seen yet?

Brandon Sanderson

It is about patterns...

#9 Copy

DCD328

[Personalization Request] To Hoid, with a message that hints at his quest.

Brandon Sanderson

To make that which once was.

DCD328

I ordered this from Brandon's store maybe 5 or 6 years ago.

#13 Copy

Oberyn

Who was the last person cultivation spoke to before Dalinar? Is he/she important?

Brandon Sanderson

If you mean the last person she gave a Boon/curse to instead of letting the Nightwatcher, RAFO. (But otherwise, she talks to lots of people.)

#18 Copy

The_Carpathian

Can aluminum be used to take liquid from a Shardpool, and will it stay Invested?

Brandon Sanderson

That would work.

#21 Copy

Aerlion

Is it possible to create a Hemalurgic spike with several stolen attributes?

Brandon Sanderson

Not as far as anyone knows right now

#22 Copy

Aerlion

Is it possible to use Hemalurgic spikes to steal multiple attributes from the same person?

Brandon Sanderson

No. At least, this isn't thought to be possible

#23 Copy

Hoiditthroughthegrapevine

Are the Dysian Aimians agents of Cultivation? If not, are they in league with another group (excluding the Knights Radiant) that we have seen?

Brandon Sanderson (written)

Kind of yes to both – kind of

#24 Copy

Hoiditthroughthegrapevine

If a person held enough breath to attain the 5th heightening, lived for a thousand years, and then sold all but their initial breath, would their spiritual age force them to rapidly age as we saw with Rashek, or would they resume natural aging from the point at which they ceased?

Brandon Sanderson (written)

I think they would rapidly age.

But I'm not ready to say 100%.

#25 Copy

Hoiditthroughthegrapevine

If we spiked a singer with Feruchemical nicrosil, could he store the spren he's bonded to and lose form in the process? Could he bond another spren then? Could he then change forms at will by carefully storing and tapping nicrosil?

Brandon Sanderson (written)

RAFO :)

#26 Copy

Iridium Savant

Is there only one perpendicularity on a planet per shard invested there, or can say Scadrial have more than two (natural) at a time? (Old School Scadrial when there were two separate shards)

Brandon Sanderson

RAFO

Footnote: Two words altered to obscure my horrible grammar.  See source for original text.  I asked this question because a conversation in Secret History made me think Leras was referring to a third shardpool on Scadrial.  I have since gone back and can not find what made me think that.
#27 Copy

Iridium Savant

Does the Highstorm/NoHighstorm rotation of the Weeping have to do with Ashyn's relative location to Roshar?

Brandon Sanderson

No! But great question!

#28 Copy

ElephantEarwax

If Dalinar summoned his perpendicularity during a highstorm, while the perpendicularity was open, would the areas that the highstorm was over not have spheres become invested/full of Stormlight?

Brandon Sanderson

RAFO!

#29 Copy

LerasiumMistborn

Dalinar has a task to "Unite them". Is it's ultimate purpose applies only to Roshar or it could go beyond Roshar, to the greater Cosmere?

Brandon Sanderson

This could be interpreted that way.

#30 Copy

Zorro

Was the Astalsi religion somehow edited so that Sazed remembered it as [the] Dadradah religion?

Brandon Sanderson

These two religions are branches of a more ancient religion.

Nothing was edited in this case.

#32 Copy

MiToRo94

Since all matter and energy are Investiture in different forms, and the magic of Investiture depends on the Shard it is most closely connected to, could it be theoretically possible for Lift to burn food on Scadrial to have the powers of a Mistborn?

Brandon Sanderson

This wouldn’t happen naturally - she would still get surgebinding powers, even on Scadrial.
