    Interview: Dec 6th, 2012

    Question

    What is the technology level of the singular society that existed when Adonalsium Shattered?

    Brandon Sanderson

    What was the technology level of the society that existed when Adonalsium Shattered? It was less than our own.

    QUESTION

    Are you going to give us anything more specific than that?

    BRANDON SANDERSON

    Less than our own.

    Footnote

    As Yolen was the first planet with people, this is likely the society that is referred to.

    Interview: Mar 4th, 2014

    QUESTION

    For the Dangerous Women story, are you going to write anything again in that world?

    BRANDON SANDERSON

    That world will show up again. Silence probably won't, but the world itself, yes. It's called Threnody, it is one of the Cosmere worlds. There's not a Shard there but there are interesting things happening. There's actually been a character in other books who's from Threnody. It will eventually be clear who that is, but they have shown up in many previous Sanderson novels.

    QUESTION

    Would that be Hoid?

    BRANDON SANDERSON

    Hoid is not from Threnody. Good question though. Hoid is from Yolen.

    Footnote

    Nazh is from Threnody.

    Interview: Feb 22nd, 2016

    Question

    Have we seen the world mirrored by the Expanse of Broken Sky?

    Brandon Sanderson

    (long grunting and contemplation) Iím not answering that, RAFO

    Question

    What does First of the Sun look like on the Cognitive Realm? I think itís a whole bunch of grubs, or worms.

    Brandon Sanderson

    RAFO, címon you know Iím not gonna reveal Cognitive Realm on the other ones.

    Question

    The Expanse of VibranceÖ Nalthis?

    Brandon Sanderson

    (more grunting) You would be making a good guess, if you said that. Thatís an informed guess.

    Argent

    Thatís not an answer, keep pushing.

    Question

    Is the only reason that Yolen is not reachable, according to Khriss, because it doesnít have any sentience on it thinking of it as a planet, so it doesnít appear in the Cognitive?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Ahh, no. Good question, but no.

    Blightsong

    Is Yolen named after Jane Yolen?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Yes.

    Question

    Yes, ok. I've always wondered.

    Brandon Sanderson

    One of the early fantasy books I read was Dragon's Blood, and so I named it after her.

    Interview: Nov 30th, 2016

    Borderlands SF-AU Tour (Paraphrased)

    Question

    Is Vax present (lurking) in any of the star systems explained in Arcanum Unbounded? Personally I think there will be more star systems that would be discovered in the future and Vax might be part of them. Comment?

    Brandon Sanderson

    RAFO for Vax. Yes, there might be more stars. The picture on the cover is the sight observed from one particular place (Silverlight? RAFO). Let's just say that there are more planetary systems present in the existing star chart itself that you don't know yet. (He RAFO-ed when I asked if Yolen is present in the dragon constellation)
