I haven't really looked into Google Wave all that much. It seems worth investigating.

Oh, and if I get permission from their original creator, I'll put up the links for the dice roller and roll viewer my group uses.

*points Miyabi in the direction of this forum thread and this forum thread.

If that looks at all interesting, feel free to toss me a PM on those forums. My username there is Ninja Penguin.
Yes, I know. I came up with the name when I was 13. Give me a break.

I have yet to turn that community on to BS's work in general, but I've made the recommendation to a number of people.

Are we trying to imply that Elvis is Hoid?  I can totally see him breaking god with pelvic thrusts.
Adonalsium got "all shook up." Hur, hur, hur.

A lot of pen-n'-paper RPG's can be played with some clever manipulation of instant-messaging programs, thankfully. My gaming group does all its sessions over MSN Messenger, now, with a virtual dice roller/roll viewer a friend of mine coded.

Man, I'm getting excited for this thing all over again.

Hunter Of Innumerable Ducks.
Healthcare On International Debate.
Hold On, I'm Doping.
Hrrgh, Oh, I'm Dying.

...Yeah, I got nothing. I'll go on another Hoid-hunt in WoA later tonight, to catch anything we might have missed.

EDIT: Those acronyms all make an odd sort of chronological sense, if you put them together.

Will be the ability to change from the Physical to the Cognitive, and maybe even to the Spiritual?
Hopefully this is true. It fits right in with the whole duality of Roshar vs. Shadesmar, and my multi-planar planet theory.

I can't read any more Hoid scenes without imagining him as the Noid now. Randomly cracking up in the library thanks to you guys. -_-

was asked by Brandon and Issac NOT to post
I kid, I kid. I like the ideas behind this, though.

Ah, I was looking for something like that. My thanks.

Ook's sadistic nature is spreading. Joyous. -_-

Throwing in my two cents:

At first, I thought the "two lands [that] meet" were simply Fjorden and Arelon, because I was dead-set on the Elantrians being the "gods [that] have died." After seeing the concept art for WoK, I'm not so sure. Roshar and Shadesmar and undeniably two lands that meet, and we know for a fact that the Shards can die. Perhaps, then, one or more perishes in the plot of HoK, or at least Stormlight Archive in general?

Gah. Discussion about the Shard Cosmology always gets me excited.

planar theory


Prediction time. There are multiple Shards of Adonalsium, something originally much greater and unified, yes? And under planar theory, there are multiple planes of existence?

Each Shardworld could possibly be an extraplanar version of the same planet. If Adonalsium was connected to a single world as the Shards are now, then it's conceivable that the world would shatter in a similar manner - many copies of itself with similar properties, but none of them a perfect recreation.

This also makes Hoid's planet-hopping antics a bit more easily imaginable. Rather than actually flying through time and space to different planets, he's simply shifting which plane he's in.

Ooh. Plenty for me to pick apart, here.
huge, magical (yes, they are supernatrial) storms
when you go back out the gem will actually glow
These are apparently important
I guess we know where the title Stormlight Archive came from, now.

30 magic systems
Going along with the theory that there's a magic system on a given world for every Shard present there, and a system that draws from the interaction of any two Shards, this means that the total number of Shards here is between 7 and 8...

Well, this means that theory needs revising. Maybe there are systems that draw power from more than two?

the writing is symetrical
That has to do with the mirrored nature of Roshar and Shadesmar, I think. It's also worth noting that the writings all end in points -- some, in fact, look very much like swords. The giant swords are summoned with a writing-based magic system, perhaps? God, there's too much here for me to analyze without going into total speculative fanboy mode.

That should make them look smoother than the rest of the metal, more like they were embossed.
Yeah, they almost look like they're made from stone at the moment. Will make that change as soon as I have access to Illustrator again.

...I should have posted this in the Fan Art thread, huh. I lurk here all the time and I always forget it's there. -_-

I would actually love to see this. Film it.
