17th Shard (Report)

    Can you tell me how long it was from the Sshattering of Adonalsium to the prelude of The Way of Kings when the Heralds abandoned the Oathpact?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Current timeline, which I have NOT canonized, is around 6,000 years... I have not finished with my outline document yet.

    leiftinspace

    'Cause I've looked at the current chronology and it's very, very spotty...

    Brandon Sanderson

    Yes it is... the real trick is... making sure that I fit in, for instance, White Sand and things with the proper amount... because I haven't released that book series yet, I have to make sure while we're doing the graphic novel, that it fits the chronology, which is why I can't quite canonize things yet.

    leiftinspace

    That one takes place before The Way of Kings doesn't it?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Yes.

    leiftinspace

    'Cause I know one of the worldhoppers from there shows up in The Way of Kings...

    Brandon Sanderson

    Yeah, White Sand is one of the very earliest.

    I've picked up in bits in pieces that it's possible, for some people at least, to use the Shardpools to worldhop...

    Brandon Sanderson

    Yes.

    leiftinspace

    Can non-invested people do that, or do you have to have some form of investiture?

    Brandon Sanderson

    [Hesitantly] Every individual is invested to some extent...

    leiftinspace

    Do you have to have any special investiture above and beyond the normal spark of life?

    Brandon Sanderson

    I'm gonna go ahead and RAFO that.

    Can you write in one of my books about something we don;t know about the Shards, or at least one of the Shards?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Odium has killed at least one more Shard than the ones we know about.
