Yes. All of the adjectives must start with an I.

I thought they were all 'in' adjectives.  Final Empire he is Incalculable, HOA he is Indivisible, Warbreaker he is Insoluable, and in Elantris, WoA, and the one Alcatraz book I own, there is no adjective.

Yes. All of the adjectives must start with an I.


No one told me that rule in the OP. And I still like 'monocausational'.

Yeah, I wasn't sure, so I decided to err on the side of recklessness.

The intentional Peter Ahlstrom.

(I think he means that the adjectives are supposed to start with "I", but I can't be sure.)

That was also the impression I got.  Actually, I think Brandon mentions it in his annotation of the acknowledgments page for HoA.
You can think without acting and you can act without thinking... but which is worse?

I was already indivisible, and I have a shirt to prove it.

He also has an insoluble shirt.  He was wearing it when I met him. 

@Peter
You also have an insoluble shirt.  You were wearing it when I met you.

Talking about someone who is an established participant in the conversation you're butting into is probably socially irresponsible. :P

I saw a post on on e of the forums by Peter saying that he was thinking about writing an Alternative History novel. The idea he had sounded really cool. so peter did that idea go anywhere? I think it is a great idea for a book. Then again, I am a history buff.

Actually I found out at a Worldcon that that idea had already been written by someone else. More or less. I have a note about it somewhere to look up eventually. If I can find it.

The Baroque Cycle by Neal Stephenson has some really interesting alternate history. It's a good read if you can handle a few 900-page books.

Different days, or were you wearing them on top of each other? ;) If so, I think I know what your adjective should be:

The Inadvisable Peter Ahlstrom :P

The shirt was my idea.   ;D

I'm voting for "indefatigable," because I like saying it.
