    Question

    Which eye does the Sovereign have spiked? And what does the spike give?

    The opposite eye that Marsh has spiked. And nothing special. More to come in Secret History 2 and 3.

    How did Marsh become regarded as Death in Elendel Basin?

    Question

    Can a Returned give their Divine Breath to someone else like how a regular Nathian would give their Breath away? Ie: would that then make the recipient "Divine" or elevate them to the 5th heightening?

    Brandon Sanderson

    They can give their Divine Breath away but it wouldn't make the recipient divine or anything. Basically, this is how they heal someone- by using the "My life to yours, my Breath become yours" command.

    Question

    In the written novel of Warbreaker there is a scene where Vasher uses a special command to put all of his Breath into a rope except for his Divine Breath, but it doesn't say what command he uses. In the same scene in the Graphic Audio version, Vasher says, "My Breath to give, for life to live." Is that command canon or was that a construct of the Graphic Audio team?

    Brandon Sanderson

    I'd have to check with Peter and/or Isaac, but I *think* it is canon. Basically you can treat is as being canon for now.

    Question

    Who painted the paintings that Lightsong reacted to? Anyone specific?

    Brandon Sanderson

    There is one painting that was painted by someone significant- someone you've heard of. Any more than that is RAFO.

    Question

    Has Hoid ever submitted a painting to the Court of Gods?

    Brandon Sanderson

    That is the sort of thing that Hoid would do, but none of the paintings that we've seen were by Hoid or anything.

    Question

    Could Bloody Tan burn bendalloy (because it mentions he steals a large shipment of bendalloy)?

    Brandon Sanderson

    *cautiously* ...which version of Bloody Tan? (If you've read Shadows of Self, then you know why Brandon was hesitant here)

    Question

    The "Alloy of Law" version, not later.

    Brandon Sanderson

    No, he didn't burn Bendalloy to pull the stunt with Lessie and the bullet or anything. He stole the bendalloy because its expensive and valuable.

    Question

    What does the flute do?

    Brandon Sanderson

    it plays music.

    Question

    *laughs nervously* but there must be more to it

    Brandon Sanderson

    *smiles* all the flute does is play music. (He said more, but I can't really remember well enough to write down)

    Question

    During this same scene, Hoid mentions that he'd been named after a rock, a very beautiful one. Was this a reference to Dragonsteel? When he had the name Topaz?
