So there are new chapters up. Will discussion continue in this thread or will a new one be created for ch. 4-6?

Why not go ahead and create a separate topic? This one is getting long as it is.

Alright, I just want to get this out there in writing before the book comes out:


After reading the Prologue, I'm guessing we see someone or something Lashed in two opposite directions, pulling them/it apart. Szeth used multiple Lashings on the balcony, so we know it's possible to use multiple Lashings on the same thing.


I don't want to see any confirmation or denial from alpha readers, just had to post this.  ;D

Cruel but possible.  It would make a good scene but very, very graphic.  So put multiple lashings on each arm and leg to quarter them.  I looked up Hanged, Drawn, and Quartered but that would be way too graphic.  I will stick to just quartered.

Now that this has been mentioned I keep thinking about decapitation by lashing. With enough exerted force it would just... pop. :shutter: I honestly don't think Brandon would get that graphic though. Or maybe he has a darker side we haven't seen that he must bring out in his epic.

It is a pretty graphic and disturbing , but I've heard that Way of Kings was going to be a bit darker than his other books. Could be wrong though.

Perhaps it won't be done to a person, but an animal or a monster? Thunderclasts maybe? Although for some reason it seems to me that they are probably immune to Lashing. I don't know why.

Haha... you guys are gross.  ::)

But I think some bits of the first book are grosser than that, one aspect in particular. I'll be interested in seeing how it rates with other readers.

I won't tell you what it is, but I'll tell you that it wasn't about Lashing (wasn't really about anything in these chapters, which is why I'll shut up now).

This sort of speculation is perfect for gaming though, which is why I think his books will make great RPG settings.

Seriously, I could see an MMORPG made out of his Cosmere. I'd dump WoW in a second for that. I'ma start doing some character design and modeling Brandon! I'll send you the bill. (if nothing else I'll just mod Counter-Strike: Source or Baldur's Gate into "The Cosmere")
