    Journey Before Pancakes - Cosmere Discusson


    Last Edited Dec. 18, 2020

    And we can all thank The Lopen for that one.

    Welcome to the thread where we can all discuss Brandon Sanderson's grand novel and graphic novel universe known as the Cosmere.

    1) Spoiler tags on Rhythm of War and anything directly related to it is 6 months. Length of spoiler tag requirement can changed to be longer upon demand.

    So we're clear, Rhythm of War content needs spoiler tags until May 17th 2021

    2) Future new novel & novella spoiler tag requirements will vary depending on content. Novellas will be 1 month. Novels 3 months. Stormlight Archive Books 6 months.

    3) All other Cosmere novels released are fair game and do not require spoilers. All who enter are warned if they haven't read any of the other novels.

    4) Yes, BG knows that there's a big divide over Era 2 of Mistborn. Unless it is constructive, leave the "Wax and Wayne sucks" or "Why you be hating on Wax and Wayne?" at the door.

    5) Please mark pictures with exposed safehands NSFV - Not Safe for Vorinism. Or go to Safehandhub if that's your fancy. I'm not a cryptic that's screaming NO MATING.

    Now I'm gonna eat some pancakes (not really, but gonna eat something) and fill myself on awesomeness.

    And if you want your fill in memes, there's r/cremposting.

    Dawnshard
    Spoiler: show
    Think the big Dawnshard secret will stay Cosmere info only or will it seep into Stormlight Archive? Same with the Sleepless. I can see them going completely unmentioned in the main Stormlight series.

    Dunno if Sanderson said anything about it.

    I, for one, love Wax and Wayne.

    I can't imagine the point of it being the novella between Oathbringer and Rhythm of War if it was gonna stay Cosmere only. Edgedancer very heavily played into the next book.

    So amped for RoW; Stormlight is the best long-form epic fantasy series actively going imo (ASoIaF can rejoin the convo if WoW ever gets published).

    Early Part 1 Row
    Spoiler: show
    Reading the epigraphs and how the flying machine works, allomatic metals are having some interesting interactions with spren and stormlight. The push/pull of brass and zinc for example. It's going to be interesting when different invested technologies mix and learn how this all blends together to eventually make FTL space flight.

    I'll be back to this thread. Just finished my Book 2 + 3 run, but now I need to check out Dawnshard. Is that available only on Kindle or anywhere else? I'll probably just read a synopsis but my fellow reading group highly recommends it.

    Starting Part 2 now, I'm going to make 2 predictions and we'll come back and see how I did later.

    The words of the Fourth Ideal are something like "I will accept that I cannot protect everyone."

    The Ghostblood spy is an alter that she, Veil, and Radiant are unaware of.
