On the other hand, it's pretty impressive that the forum has been around for so long.

Nice, another glowing review for Dan. We do love the happy reviews around here. :)

Wow, crazy. I'm not surprised by Brandon fanfics anymore, but fansongs are kind of new. I wonder if this counts as filk.

Wow, I haven't seen a movie so perfectly paired up with a song since Kevin Caldwell's Evangelion/Engel AMV. How odd that both songs are in German.

Brandon Sanderson / Re: **SPOILERS! The Shards of Adonalsium

Yeah, I try to disclaimer things with "last I heard" or similar. I'm pretty sure, and this is just personal opinion, that the three main roles presented in the original Dragonsteel will exist when/if it ever gets published, and that Hoid's identity related to that story will stay. I also have no doubt that the specifics will be wildly different.

Still, with unpublished ideas bouncing around in an author's head, you never know. Brandon may scrap the whole Dragonsteel world and start over, and completely redifine the shards on that world, including Hoid's origin story.

Heh, on a side note, I'm one of those people. I got about 100 pages into WoT book 3 and couldn't take it anymore. The stories were so slow and the main characters so annoying that I just gave up. It's not for everyone.

I think you misunderstood his twitter answers. He annouced that a sequel to Elantris is one of his next projects, not that it has anything to do with Mistborn (other than the standard Brandonverse theorycrafting you can find in other threads here).

I appreciate that this thread has needed very little moderation, especially for such a sensitive topic. That said, I'd like to remind everyone that religion is very personal, and while we like to encourage respectful discussion, please refrain from telling other people what they should think or feel.

Everyone has an opinion, and you're free to express it. But please don't tell other people what their opinions are or what those opinions mean.

Thanks for keeping the discussion clean.

Ok, I agree. While I appreciate what you're doing Braus, we don't want links to copyrighted material on the forums. Thanks for the Tor links though, I think some people will find them very helpful and interesting.

Well I just posted a huge hint in the Hoid thread, so at this point everyone who's read the original Dragonsteel is bascially caught up with what *I* know, so we can all speculate together.

Brandon Sanderson / Re: Hoid??

Ok, I don't feel bad saying this now, since Brandon basically spilled the beans, but yes, the Liar of Partinel (Midius? It's been a while) is Hoid. He uses the name in honor of his master. He is a viewpoint character in both of the Dragonsteel books that have been written, and I imagine will be for the whole series.

For those who've read the original Dragonsteel, mega-hint-spoiler-thing: for Hoid to appear in multiple stories in multiple worlds, it *would* help a great deal to be immortal.

I have unconfirmed theories on how he travels from world to world. "Hoid" helps a young man in Dragonsteel learn about his own shard, and that young man's shard would be very conducive to FTL travel. At this point, I'm just speculating with the rest of you though. :)

I'm a little worried about the legality of the audiobooks on YouTube. They are, as mentioned, just a tiny preview, so it may fall under Fair Use, but still...

Peter, is this something that's generally allowed?

Can you put the dates and locations for each on your post? And WorldCon is the fanservice one, right?
