Doubtful that they're arched. Most of them would probably be flat and roughly buttressed along the bottom.

Chasms get thinner as you go out to the edges, wider as you go in towards the center. If you model a carry-bridge, remember that about half the length of it remains on the side it's pushed from, for balance.

I have a feeling that at some point we'll learn where the shattered plains came from (how they cam to exist, geologically speaking), since I doubt it will end up being that it just happened naturally.  So I suspect that when we learn what made them, our understanding of what they look like will improve somewhat.

For now though, in terms of sizing and spacing of the plateaus, the image in the book gives a pretty good idea I think.


I have a couple theories of my own about where they did come from... We'll see if I guessed right in the future!

To add to this, you can use a number of website to host your art - http://imgur.com/ is my personal preference.

Shardplate helms have faceplates that can be lifted or removed. Brandon doesn't really clearly describe them other than contextually (paraphrasing "Dalinar slammed down his faceplate", "Andolin lifted his faceplate to breathe", etc) so you have a good bit of freedom in how you want to interpret it.

Especially when you get into the magical contexts, because I think that unlike a real plate where you have to look through a slot or pinholes, the face of the shardplate helm goes all smoky transparent when he brings it down. Ideally, this means the exterior of it can look like almost anything, since the issue of vision/protection is moot.

it does have a small eye-slit (see the scene when Kaladin kills the dude by ramming a spear point into said eye slit). Dalinar says that while the helm goes translucent it's not quite enough to allow seeing clearly enough to fight without a slit.

You're right, I stand corrected.

Though every suit of shardplate is unique, so any suit may differ from another in various ways. But yeah, there should probably be something like a traditional eyeslit or holes or something in the faceplate, if for no other reason but that you'd like to be able to keep seeing if the gems crack and your suit goes dead.

Ok, thanks. Now that you mention it, I recall Dalinar describing the plate at one point.

Can anyone actually see this picture? It's a sketch I did of the scene where Kaladin jumps over the bridge.

If you can't actually see it, here's a link.
