    E. Hyde

    Shinovar seems more earthlike than the rest of Roshar; does this occur naturally or was it somehow changed to be that way?

    Chris King (Miyabi)

    And this is one of my side theories that I espouse here. Is that kind of similar to the reason why there are no spren in Shinovar is because the people there so disbelieve them that it creates a negative pressure that keeps them from physical manifestation?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Good question.

    Interview: Sep 24th, 2013

    Question

    When we get to the interlude in The Way of Kings, where we see the Shinovar merchant, he talks about his guards being different from Truthless. What makes the distinction?

    Brandon Sanderson

    You will find that out in Book 3 which has Szeth's flashback sequences and show him becoming Truthless.

    Leinton

    Are there birds outside of Shinovar in Roshar?

    Brandon Sanderson

    There are, but very few and they are all in the west. So you're not going to find birds in Alethkar for instance. Unless they're chickens that have been brought, or something like that.

    Question

    Stone is sacred to the Shin. Do Oathstones have anything to do with that?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Yes. Oathstones have a lot to do with their religion.
