Brandon Sanderson / Re: Limitations of magic in WoK ** spoilers**

well we  know that Shardplate is immune to Lashings, so it probably blocks Soulcasting as well.

I'm prettty sure the Words of Founding are the books Saze left for Spook (containing all the information that was in his metalminds and the explanations about metaphysical stuff).

Brandon intends to write the ending the way RJ wanted it as much as possible. So Brandon's views on polyamorous relationships have nothing to do with anything.

And I like Min too, she's the least irritating of all the major female characters.

Brandon didn't have time to write annotations for Wok during the copyedit process, so he'll write them while rereading the book in preparation for writing the next one, after he finishes AMoL. So it'll be a few months at best.

Szeth implies that the fact that it changes his eyes when he summons it is unique to that particular one. 

Also, Szeth is shorter then most of the other characters, so his sword is well suited to him.

Personally I'm wondering where Szeth's honorspren is.  Syl really doesn't like leaving Kal, so why is Szeth missing his companion?
In the magical descriptions at the end of The way of Kings it say that there were two types of surgebinding, windrunning could be one type and  Szeth could have another type. Furthermore Nohadon says the Alakavish is a surgebinder and has the Nahel bond but not all spren are as discerning as a honorspren suggesting differnet types of Surgebinding. Jasnah says there were two orders that did soulcasting so it makes sense that two orders performed surgebinding. I just wanted to ask if anyone knows anything about Dustbringers it is mentioned in the prologue.

There's actually 10 types of Surgebinding I think,  Szeth and Kaladin both can control Gravity (the Basic and Reverse Lashings) and Pressure (the Full Lashing) which is two types. Each order of the KR had two types of Surgebinding and each type was shared by two orders  (and Brandon has clarified that Soulcasting the way Jasnah and Shallan do is a type of Surgebinding, controlling a Surge called Transformation).

Also, Brandon has said that something different is happening with Szeth then with Kaladin, which implies that he gets his powers in a different way then Kaladin and we think he doesn't have a spren. But he did confirm that Kaladin and Szeth are using the same powerset, even if they get it in different ways.

Marsh is presumably a servant of Sazed at this point, I don't see why Saze would be getting him to kidnap presumably innocent women, or letting him do it if he was doing it on his own.

well Roshar is in the same solar system as the planet the unpublished Silence Divine takes place on.........

talk about Mundane Utility (warning TVTropes link, do not click if you have anything important that needs doing today.)

the end of book 9 is epic in several senses.

and perhaps,abstractly , using the Blades and Plate in the way they used to be used, a way that benefits people as  a whole, not just the people that have possession of them.

I like 8th order (resolute/builder) for Dalinar, he's certainly very resolute when he puts his mind to things, and he's trying to build a real unified alliance among the highprinces. Also his personal chosen virtue (Glory) is determination.
