BlackWiz, I think that you were only slightly mistaken. I might be wrong too, but I think that the scholars had reached the 5th heightening (or probably higher) but were not naturally returned. I think the command that Vasher used "Return" merely took him to the returned state, a benefit of the 5th heightening.

I know it's not an online comic but I LOVE the Walking Dead series by Robert Kirkman. Has anyone else read them?

I think that part of my ponderings were answered there. However, I imagine that several of the big looming questions that pop to my mind are to be written into the next book or shouldn't be answered at all. When I read or write I want to think, but not too hard. There is a balance of moderation where you assume your reader/author has a level of intelligence. That said, you still write or read at a fourth grade level. I don't think there is any need to make yourself seem smart as an author. The story will speak for itself.

Been awhile since I've made a comment. It seems a little mundane to me but clarification would be relatively easy. There is mention of 300 years rule by the God-Kings. Klad the Usurper being the last to have a Queen of the Royal bloodline. Klad having split the kingdoms, leading to Hallandren and Idris. However, the Idrian king made the treaty to marry a female Royal away only recently? His treaty only a lifetime old? Klad had started the Manywar but this timeline is unclear. I'm just trying to figure it myself, any ideas?

Excellent! I'm glad there will be another book. I feel there is much more story to be told. I would really like to see Vasher's character more developed and possibly see how he has become as jaded as he is. Susebron's knowledge is hopefully a little more than just his childhood book. Maybe enveloped in it's 'stories' are more than vague truths? Having had this resource of being able to watch this story unfold has helped me to get past some of the roadstops on the way to my finished book.

I love questionable content. When I found it there were 7oo something comics. I read the first 375 that night. The rest that next night and every day when a new one comes out I'm there!

I've really enjoyed reading this inbetween school-work and other fun books. When will 'WARBREAKER' go up for sale? Are you now thinking of a follow-up?

I've pretty much got it figured out now, but there is no explaination anywhere on dueling or leveling up. Maybe a new post to the forum would do? or even an addition to the FAQ.

My name is Jesse. I live in Arkansas, but I'm from Michigan. I'm working on my Bachelors in Organizational Managment(fun). I work for a communications company as an installation technician. I thouroughly enjoyed Elantris and Mistborn and cannot wait untill I get the next book! I am, as a hobby, writing a book.

I, like most posters thouroughly enjoy your work. I found it through a friend's blog site. I find it orginal and refreshing. That said I suppose a few comments are in order.

I understand the oposing character types of the sisters but they are sisters, shouldn't they be somewhat alike? I also understand Vivenna being so stubborn, but I need to see her character come to realize she may have to get even more dirty than she is now to accomplish the things she sets out to. I would actually play with the idea of her being tempted to take more breath later on when she might possibly be learning to Awaken. At some point she'll have to accept that the two oposing religions came from a singular one. She could possibly find that religion and taking it as her own she might accept breath/color? Maybe Tonk Fah is a follower and through some history into her people's ancestors, the original outcasts, she could become a follower? I would enjoy finding more out about them and their powers that seem to be unknown by their holders and feared by their enemies.

I too enjoy Vasher/Nightblood and want more still. I think you might need to flesh out their relationship some more or maybe it's just part of the mystery yet. I like to imagine his purposes are his own and selfserving, that he may be a hindrance but will find his goals easier to achieve through helping Vivenna, though Tonk Fah would never trust him and does want to kill him. However, being a mercanary will acdept it at Vivenna's order or at least so it seems, he did say he can quit any time...

I can't wait to see where you're going with the Lord Ruler's character! It's very interesting to think he is merely a pawn. The relationship between the two religions can also be explored here. The Risen having been caused by the absence of the outcast?

What's the deal with the nobles hair color change? I think it needs a functional purpose. This might be explored or found out by Vivenna when the war begins and can use it to her advantage.
