17th Shard (Report)

    Question

    You mention the phases of the moon fairly often in The Way of Kings—is this significant or something that we should be paying attention to?

    Brandon Sanderson

    After working with the Wheel of Time community and dealing a lot with fans wanting to know when certain events happened in regards to some other event, Brandon added in the phases of the moon in order to give dedicated fans a way of determining the chronology of the events of the Stormlight Archives.

    Footnote

    "Phase" is not the word Brandon used, it has more to do with which moon is up.

    Question

    Is there a pattern to Taravangian's stupid/smart cycle, or is it actually random?

    Brandon Sanderson

    His aides are convinced that it is random, but if you plotted it out, it's really a distribution curve that is only made to look random.

    Question

    Dalinar, in one of his visions, sees the stars wink out one by one. Are these the stars of other shardworlds and [Brandon sort of interrupted me here to answer so the rest just kind of came out as a mumble] does this imply that the final Desolation is going to affect more than just Roshar?

    You earned yourself a RAFO card!
