LoL is free -- so you don't have to buy W3 or anything :) And it's pretty fun.

The campaign is EPIC! The storytelling is awesome and it ends on such an awesome note. It's pretty much a fave :) Very exciting.

Brandon Sanderson / Re: Eastern Slang

I totally don't have time to read any of this...but...I find it funny that he was writing Alcatraz during Mistborn and there's a little Eastern Slang in Alcatraz versus the Evil Librarian (I don't know about the rest of the Alcatraz, but -- I just finished number one and found some).

Arrrrg. I can't find the exact quote, but Quenton said it (or Quinton...grr...I don't have the book in front of me to remember these things). But, he says something like "Wassing the what of the wassing" or something like that.

...I find it funny that Lugia looks like it's in a low-cut it supposed to look that way?

Brandon Sanderson / Re: Mistborn Trilogy Sequel *Spoilers*

I'm gonna call it here and say large-scale business romance story between two rival CEO's or a deep secluded mystery book about thievery and thriftery.

Haha, jk. :)

I'm on my first read-through of WoT too and I started with Eye of the World and, let's just say, after taking my time through EotW, it took me about a week before I picked up The Great Hunt and then, about half way through GH, I blasted through the rest and am now firmly set on reading them all. For me, it just took time to get used to Robert Jordan. Like all authors, you just have to familiarize yourself with the writing, the person. It's just like making a new friend. Some you're chummy-chummy with from the start, others it's more of a wariness. It was wariness with me and Jordan to begin with, but now we're best of buds and I'm trucking through his little behemoths. So, good luck to you too on your first read-through :) I'm stopping when WoK comes out and going to devour that little beasty before I return to Randland :P

Just about a couple more weeks until it comes out!!!!!! I might add you :) It'd be fun to have someone to play with! I don't know my thing, though...I leach it off my brother...haha.

Brandon Sanderson / Re: How did you find out about Brandon Sanderson?

Well... my sister gave me Elantris for my birthday because she had read it and had had dinner with Mr. Sanderson and talked to him. Took me about almost two years to finally crack open Elantris. I started it a few times, but I just couldn't get into it. I just wasn't ready for epic fantasy yet. Well...that all changed after Elantris. When I actually sat down to read it, it took me about three days to get through. I was moving about 1000 miles during this time and so I wasn't much help as I was tired everyday from staying up late reading Elantris. And, in order to finish Elantris, I stayed up until 2 a.m. (when I should have been sleeping because I was helping drive up to where I was moving) and read the entire third part in that night. It was pretty epic.

Needless to say, Sanderson books have hooked me onto the epic fantasy genre. Instead of going to the YA section first of a store, I head straight to the fantasy/sci-fi section. It's pretty much awesome. It's about a year later since I first picked and read Elantris and I've now read all Sanderson epic fantasy books and am on my way cruising through book 3 of WoT and I am so excited for WoK it's not even funny. Sanderson seriously has me hooked on an entire genre now and I'm loving this fact.  ;D

He is mentioned by name in all the books except for Well of Ascension.

Is there reason he's not mentioned by name? Or was Brandon just not able to fit it in?

Ah. Yeah. I hope it's like a book with a main character that delves into how all the other books connect to one another or something or other - probably the mysterious Hoid character.

Is Hoid a character in Elantris, Warbreaker, and Mistborn? *goes to investigate other forums*

I think a book/something that explains it all is good for both hardcore and non-hardcore, though, because, the hardcore go through every book, piecing it together, and then they can double check their findings against what the author says is true compared to what they think - so, it's not just speculation, you can say "Yes! I was right" or "Darn, but that's really cool!" And then for some who don't wish to go through every book, who just enjoy finding out, can learn more from something that explains it all. I don't think he'll do something like a cheat sheet, though. It'll probably be a book that goes through all the other books or something -- not just a simple "This is what is" because that's kinda lame.

At a signing, I asked Brandon if there was going to be anything that would tie all of the books in the Cosmere together and he said that with as many books as he has planned (somewhere around 36 or so) a lot of information would be there, but that he did plan on something that would tie it all together.  He didn't say whether it would be a book or what, tho.

Oh, good, this pleases me greatly :) Very greatly :D

Hmm...yes, very good way. Guess I shouldn't mope. It just all sounds really cool! And somedays I'm just too lazy to go surfing the internet, following multiple threads. Haha. Time to become devoted to the Sandersonian religion I guess ;)

And, probably a lot will be revealed in WoK...why else would the weapons in it have the words "Shard" and everything high and mighty and divine in the cosmere be focused around "Shards"? Just two more months-ish! :D

Yes, Brandon said "Elantris already has a sequel. It's called Mistborn."

It's the Liar of Partinel that happens centuries or millennia earlier.

Ok ... now I'm thoroughly confused again... will any of this ever be explained to those of us who just read the books and aren't in the inner circle? 'cause I can wait for that explanation... but all this is confusing me again!
