    Breath and Stormlight? (paraphrased)

    Brandon Sanderson

    Brandon said that the aura of the BioChromatic Breath and Stormlight is very similar. They're two different magic systems, but essentially the same phenomenon.

    Nazh?

    Brandon Sanderson

    I also got confirmation from him that Nazh appears in the broadsheets that are scattered throughout the Bands of Mourning. And he's doing something very Nazh-ish.

    I also asked if Kelsier has talked to Marsh since Sazed's Ascension.

    Brandon Sanderson

    I got a RAFO for that one, but Brandon said that this will be specifically addressed in the future, so it's not just a RAFO in case, it will be answered.

    little wilson

    Is the gender of a spren bonded to a surgebinder based on sexual preferences?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Not strictly. You're more likely to bond a spren of the opposite gender (or a spren that identifies as the opposite gender since spren have no gender), just like you're more likely, statistically, to be attracted to someone of the opposite gender. There is a correlation between the two but just because a male character has a male spren does not necessarily mean what some think it means.

    How many Shards are whole at the time of Shadows of Self?

    Brandon Sanderson

    RAFO. Ish. (He's too tired to do math, but he says it's about half-ish).

    viridian

    My younger daughter asked why, if Renarin could see the future, did he say "We're dead"?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Brandon said this will be explained soon (I didn't remember Book 3 being specifically mentioned but I was distracted, and she swears she heard him say that's where it would be addresseed further).

    At what point did Renarin hear the Shardblades screaming?

    Brandon Sanderson

    He said "Earlier than what was apparent."

    CarolaDavar

    If the Storm father were to turn into a blade for Dalinar, would it be bigger than a regular shardblade?

    Brandon Sanderson

    RAFO (not because it may be answered, but because he doesn't want to accidentally canonize something).

    CarolaDavar

    Do you ever go on the 17th Shard just to see what randomness we do there?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Not often, but yes.
