        "What do you mean you can't?"
        "I mean exactly what I said.  When I tried to draw the circle the chalk would just fade from the ground!"
        "I've never heard of that happening before.  Have you checked your guidebook for anything?"
        "Nothing.  I checked there first.  The only thing that came close is sacred ground."
        "But in those cases the chalk doesn't even stick."
        "Was it your skirt maybe whipping the chalk behind you?"
        "It looks different when that's the case.  There's at least a bit of the chalk left.  Plus I watched it disappear.  It was... well, it's hard to explain.  Here, watch."
        "Huh.  I haven't ever seen that before.  And you're sure that the book didn't have anything about it?"
        "I wish I hadn't left mine back at the castle.  'Leave it,' the prince said.  'We're only scouting the old ruins in the forrest.  Don't worry so much.'  Now he's knocked out, our horses are gone, and no way to get back."
        "He couldn't have known about this."
        "Doesn't matter.  I should always plan for anything to happen."
        "If I held my book open could you read it?  THen it's still me using the book, so it might get around the imprinting."
       "Maybe.  It's worth a try."
        "Nope.  The pages are blank."
        "Watch your mouth!"
        "Sorry sir.  I'm just frustrated."
        "I know bout we'll figure it out.  And there's nothing about fading?"
        "Hm.  Read me what it says about sacred ground?"
       " 'All spells cast within sacred ground will not work due to the agreement made with the Almighty.  All spoken spells are unable to collect the nessary power.  Ink or chalk used to do a written spell within the dedicated ground are unable to stick to the material it is written on.  IN most cases it just appears to not write.  When-' "
        "Wait!  'In most cases'... I think my book explained that better.  I wish I could remember.  Ugh!"
        "Do you think these ruins could be something sacred?"
        "It's possable but -- no, wait.  Have you tried any verbals?"
        "I don't think so.  Should I?"
       "Um... yes.  Try just a light ball for me."
       "Til emot moec."
        "Perfect.  I felt a small build up, but it felt like there was something blocking it.  Try again at the edge of the ruins.
        "It felt a bit stronger, but still nothing.  You look like you might know what's going on.
        "I might.  Try one more time, but this time go out into the forrest until you can't see the ruins anymore before you try."
        "Alright. . ."
        "I don't suppose your highness would like to wake up while she's gone?  It'd make things easier on me."
        "SIR!  Sir, it worked!"
        "Good.  Good.  Now to take care of his highness."
        "Sir?  What's going on?"
        "I'm not sure, but I think this might have been a chruch, but it was dedicated well before the alliance.  So the block is in place but it doesn't react the exact same as a church established after.  THat's why the spells react differently.  So we should be able to cast the spell to get back once we leave the area of the church.  Here, you take his legs."
        "Ugh, he's heavy!"
        "Don't worry.  It should only be a few more steps.  Then we can set him down."
        "Okay.  Now what?"
        "Try drawing the circle.  I'll do the rest of the preprations.  Barring any unforseen problems we should be back to the castle in a few minutes.  From there we'll let the king know what happened.
        "When we get back I just want you to get a servant to help his highness, then go back to your room.  I don't want you get involved."
        "No.  I won't allow it.  Now, are you done?"
        "Just finished."
        "And it's not fading out.  Great!  Let's get started on the main spell."

Secondly when Dalinar hears/remembers the voice of the Almighty telling him to "unite them"  he always assumes this means the highprinces. I got the distinct feeling that he should be uniting something more. possibly the parshendi with the alethi, or maybe parshendi and parshmen.

Yeah, just rename them Skeksis and Mystics.

You know, I had never considered that as an idea, but I completely agree with you there!  Also, +3 awesome points for the reference.

I asked Brandon if odium's visit caused the chasem, and he said not directly, no.  I don't remember much else of the conversation since it was a while ago, but I do remember that one.

Just a warning for a lot of people, I've heard from a very reliable source that all of the images won't be included in the paperback version of the book.  So it is doubly worth it to purchase the hb, just to make sure you have the images.

I can tell you right now.  It's the shattered plains and one of the characters, Rock (I think).  That's about it.  Spoiler free.

I can tell you this one: you're onto SOMETHING but you're looking at it a little too specifically.  But, good for your thinking.

Hey DT,

I was just in there yesterday and they had a ton of all of the cosmere books except for WB over on the shelf in the sf/f section.  Just to let you know!

You know what might be fun, since there seems to be a lot more TWGers coming this time, is if we all went out to eat some place?  I dunno who else is planning on being there, and who all would be interested, but I thought I'd throw the idea out there.

I guess you're right about the two museums Peter.  I tend to forget about the art museum and I've been to the bean museum so many times over the years I think I could tell every one of the exhibits with my eyes closed.

Another option for Pizza is Brick Oven.  I know of quite a few people here on TWG who like it.

As far as things to do, I've always been under the opinion that there's NOTHING to do except see a movie, or go bowling.  Or go to 7 peaks in the summer, but you won't want to do that while waiting in line.

Do you get the reference then?  If so, you are officially one of the coolest Sharders.  I'd say the second coolest in fact.  If not... well, you still have insanely mad skills.

Well, DS and WoK are similar enough that Brandon has said to hold off on reading it until you've read WoK.
