    Question

    So there are two other planets in the Roshar system, are they the Tranquiline Halls and Damnation that you mentioned in The Way of Kings?

    Interview: Sep 4th, 2014

    Question

    How much involvement does the other planet in the same system as Roshar have with Roshar?

    Brandon Sanderson

    *long pause* Your question has a fundamental flaw to it.

    Question

    Brandon Sanderson

    That there are multiple planets that have an influence on Roshar.

    Question

    I thought there were multiple planets in the system that--

    Brandon Sanderson

    There are, but you said "the other", there are more than one so the phrase, "the other" doesn't make sense.

    Question

    How much influence do the other planets have?

    Brandon Sanderson

    A great deal.

    Interview: Jan 7th, 2015

    Question

    So I heard that one of the worlds, Yolen, has disease related magic. How does that work?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Itís not Yolen, itís Ashyn. Viruses and bacteria, various strains of them, evolved in-line with the investiture of the world to grant you magical abilities when you catch the disease, because they want you to stay alive long enough to-- To transmit it. So it becomes a transmission vector. So you can fly when you have the common cold, but when you get over it, you canít anymore.
