    Is something wrong with Roshar's afterlife?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Uh, why do you ask?

    FeatherWriter

    Because of the Tranquiline Halls stuff? Needing to reclaim them?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Um. So, I'm... not going to answer anything about Roshar's afterlife.

    FeatherWriter

    Kay, alright.

    FeatherWriter

    Do you know what color, off the top of your head, the soulcaster is supposed to be? First book said gold and the second book said silver.

    Brandon Sanderson

    It depends on the soulcaster.

    FeatherWriter

    Is that a Peter...?

    Brandon Sanderson

    I believe silver is the accurate one. That's a PAFO, though.

    FeatherWriter

    Is Iyatil from Southern Scadrial?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Iyatil (he pronounced it like yah-till) has heritage along those lines, but she is not.

    FeatherWriter

    Is her mask Invested?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Mmm, no.

    FeatherWriter

    Do the Ire age because they're not on Sel?

    Brandon Sanderson

    (uncertain) Uh, they do...? They... they age, but it's not the sort of aging that you and I do.

    FeatherWriter

    Okay! Interesting...

    If a Shard's Vessel dies and drops a body and two people step in to take up the power, what would happen?

    Brandon Sanderson

    RAFO.

    Paladin Brewer

    Did the original 16 break Adonalsium with the intent to gain the shards and the power, or was that a happy/unhappy side effect?

    Brandon Sanderson

    RAFO.

    Paladin Brewer

    Are Shard vessels able to have children?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Yes they are.

    Paladin Brewer

    Even Sazed, with his body being a eunuch?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Yes, though technically all of Scadrial are the children of Preservation and Ruin.

    Paladin Brewer

    If Preservation and Ruin created life on Scadrial but did not create Feruchemy, where does it come from? The Planet?

    Brandon Sanderson

    All magic systems come from Shards power in some way.

    Footnote

    WSB: I thought there were magic before the shards originated from the shattering of Adonalsium

    eagle

    How close are all of the shard worlds in space?

    Brandon Sanderson

    (Not verbatum) The cosmere takes place in a dwarf galaxy and all the worlds are close together.

    eagle

    Close as in say 10 light-years?

    Brandon Sanderson

    More like 50. He went on to say that Peter has some harder numbers and that it might have to change a little.

    Paladin Brewer

    The metal used on Shardblades for training, is it made out of aluminum?

    Brandon Sanderson

    This question seemed to get the most reaction out of him. He laughed and smiled, and said "that's a very smart question, well done, you're on the right track."

    Paladin Brewer

    How far can a shardholder see beyond his own world?

    Brandon Sanderson

    In the spirit realm they can see infinitely.

    Paladin Brewer

    I assume Sazed does not know the metal used in Lessie's spike because it's offworld, but Odium seems aware of Sazed/Harmony. Why is this?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Odium has a lot more knowledge that Sazed, he has had the power longer, and there are forces purposely trying to limit Harmony's knowledge.

    Paladin Brewer

    It there a link between Trell and Nalt from Mistborn and Nu Ralik and Van Makik from Stormborn?

    Brandon Sanderson

    "No, there isn't, maybe just tenuously." He said something like that. He seemed confused that I asked that.

    Why did Hoid not take both beads of lerasium?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Hoid has an innate ability to know where he needs to be and what he needs to do.

    Paladin Brewer

    In Way of Kings SYl leaves Kaladin before he means Hoid because she gets a bad feeling, did this have to do with Hoid himself or something unrelated?

    Brandon Sanderson

    RAFO, I believe. I don't remember an answer for it. unsure emoticon.

    Have Kelsier and Marsh communicated in any way post-Hero of Ages?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Paladin Brewer

    Marsh says Wax is "doing his brother's work," is this a reference to what Kelsier did in the past or present?"

    Brandon Sanderson

    In the past, as in Kelsier was trying to help the little people and people who could not help themselves.
