    Is the Dor the same as the power of creation that powers Allomancy?

    Brandon Sanderson

    He said that the Dor is similar to that which powers allomancy but not 100% the same.

    Who names the planets? You've said once that "Scadrial" was the name of the planet as Ruin and Preservation knew it, but where'd they get that name? Do the Shardholders all get together and vote on it or something?

    Brandon Sanderson

    He said thay already had their names and that the all the planets existed before the shardholders got there.

    How many Shardworlds are there? Only seven? (Sel, Nalthis, Scadrial, Roshar, Yolen, Taldain, and whatever planet The Silence Divine is on?)

    Brandon Sanderson

    He said he has a set number in his head but that he didnít want to say it because he might change his mind. Essentially he doesnít want to make the number of worldís canon yet.

    Why do Shards refer to themselves by their Shard name, rather than their original name? Do they still remember their original name?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Yes they do, they do remember their original selves( didnít get any more then that though).
