Anyone else considered that this could be why the shattered plains exist? ;)

Wasn't the Shattered Plains once the site of a great city/nation? Maybe during a desolation something happened involving voidbinding and thunderclasts which shattered the earth and created the plateaus.

Yeah, because they grew thunderclasts out of the ground making huge freaking canyons during the attack.

It could happen! :)

I wonder if there is a connection between Thunderclasts and the Awakened cretures of Warbreaker? What if breath and stormlight is the same energy source altered in distinct ways by the shards located on the planets. It would solve the problem of awakening stone requiring a huge number of breaths, since Stormlight is a more available resource, especially when you consider the implications of gemhearts

Brandon has said that the magic systems of the cosmere are all based on the same philosophy...

Stormlight: Energy.
Gemheart: energy store.
Spren  trapped inside the stone(chasmfiend spren maybe):
Simple mind/instruction receiver.
Sounds alright. ;)

Speaking of spren and thunderclasts, I noted this in my re-read:
Quote
Dalinar looked up at the hulking carcass. Tiny, near-invisible spren were floating out of the beastís body, vanishing into the air. They looked like the tongues of smoke that might come off a candle after being snuff ed. Nobody knew what kind of spren they were; you only saw them around the freshly killed bodies of greatshells.

No clue what it means but I think it bears mention.

I think the current theory is that these Spren are part of the magic that allows the Greatshell's to survive despite their ridiculous proportions, and that the creatures of Roshar naturally capture Spren in order to survive the extremes found there.
Nature hates being reified.

I wonder if Josh or Mžch have the picture of the thing we drew on the chalkboard when we were coming up with names for these things.

Brandon had one name and it sounded too much like "Thundercats" so we were thinking of a new one. . . . somehow Thunderclast is better. xD  Not sure how.

Anyway, we ended up with Demok which sounded like "The Mok" . . . . . we drew a Thunderclast with Peter's head.
