    Fire Arcadia

    I met Brandon today in York, UK. You will soon be able to see a picture on twitter of the cookie I have him. Since I knew it was thanksgiving, it was a thanksgiving-themed cookie.

    After getting books signed, I asked him a few questions, listed below as best I can remember them.

    Fire Arcadia

    Are there 50 Allomantic Metals?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Nearly. Does Harmony have a metal?

    FIRE ARCADIA

    Is that an alloy of Lerasium and Atium?

    BRANDON SANDERSON

    You're along the right lines.

    Fire Arcadia

    You have said previously that the Stormlight Archive will include Lightweaving. Is that still the plan?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Yes.

    FIRE ARCADIA

    Have we seen a Roshar native in The Way of Kings who can use Lightweaving?

    BRANDON SANDERSON

    Yes, we have seen someone who has potential.

    FIRE ARCADIA

    He seemed to be trying to say that they didn't know that they can use it.

    How many Heralds appear in The Way of Kings

    Fire Arcadia

    Can you tell me something about the Cosmere that you haven't told anyone before?

    Brandon Sanderson

    There are inhabited planets in the cosmere that don't have any Shards there. There may be inhabited planets that only have a Splinter of a Shard. There are 10 core cosmere planets, which tell the overarching story of the cosmere.

    FIRE ARCADIA

    Are all the Cosmere books so far set on these 10 core worlds?

    BRANDON SANDERSON

    Yes.

    FIRE ARCADIA

    Are there any of the 10 core worlds without a Shard?

    BRANDON SANDERSON

    All 10 core worlds have significant Shardic influence.
