    Interview: Mar 21st, 2014

    Sweetness

    Since the evil on Threnody isn't a Shard, can you tell us anything about its actual nature? Is it an actual being, and is it related to Adonalsium?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Everything is related to Adonalsium in the Cosmere, most of the magic you're seeing is a just a natural outgrowth of Cosmere related magic and cognitive shadows. The Evil is similarly related.

    Interview: Mar 6th, 2014

    Question

    Does The Silence Divine take place in the cosmere?

    Brandon Sanderson

    It does, it takes place on a planet called Threnody. There is no shard on that planet however. The magic is more something you interact with, not something you perform because there isn't a shard there.

    Footnote

    Brandon makes a mistake here, confusing the stories of "The Silence Divine" and "Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell". The Silence Divine takes place on Ashyn, whereas Threnody is the setting for Shadows for Silence

    Interview: Mar 6th, 2014

    Question

    If Kelsier's Cognitive Shadow or a Seon went to the Forests of Hell, would they be shades?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Yes, that is the same thing. The people on that planet; their Investiture; the lack of shard means that their cognitive shadows react differently. The ghost of Leras is the same thing too.

    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.

    Question

    Sweet!

    Brandon Sanderson

    Thredony is the name of that world. [Threnody is correct spelling]

    Interview: Mar 12th, 2015

    Windrunner17 (Reddit)

    Hey Brandon!

    I'd like to open by thanking you for changing the method of Szeth's death. When I read it the first time, Kaladin's actions in that moment didn't ring quite true for how I saw the character. I'm glad Kal does what he does in the revisions.

    I have three questions, if you wouldn't mind. I'm trying to avoid the obvious RAFO's xD

    1. Threnody and Scadrial are both noted as having unusally bright patches of stars in their skies. Are these two planets near to one another?
    2. Did Ashyn ever have a Shard, or is its magic a natural manifestation akin to Threnody or First of the Sun?
    3. As you've stated that the magic of First of the Sun is natural and independent of any particular Shard, what is the nature of the pool on Patji? Is it also a natural manifestation of magic, a Perpendicularity, or simply a pool like any other?

    Thanks for taking the time to answer these questions, Brandon. I know you've always got family stuff, and writing, and all the other host of things that fill up a life to do, so it means a lot that you take the time to interact with us fans. Thank you for sharing your stories with us.

    Brandon Sanderson (Reddit)

    1. They are both seeing the same thing, yes.
    2. RAFO on Ashyn, as--being in the same system as Roshar--there are going to be some spoilers relating to Stormlight in anything I say here.
    3. It's a natural manifestation, but on a much smaller scale than you might find on other worlds.

    kabili207 (Reddit)

    Regarding #1, does this mean that Threnody and Scadrial are part of the same system, or are these bright patches visible from other worlds as well?

    Brandon Sanderson (Reddit)

    Visible from other worlds as well. The cosmere is a relatively small place (on a galactic scale, that is.) We'll publish the star map when that becomes relevant in a decade or so.

    Interview: Dec 6th, 2016

    Question

    Will there be any more Silence?

    Brandon Sanderson

    The world is very relevant to the Cosmere. I have several books planned there, I donít know how many of them Iíll write. I will at least write one of them. Silence herself is not a character from the books, that story matched the world so I put it there. There will be other things from that world.

    Interview: Dec 6th, 2016

    Question

    Iíve been fixating on this mass exodus. The Iriali, are they the people of the mass exodus? Iíve always wanted it to be the people of Threnody.

    Brandon Sanderson

    The Iriali are not native to Roshar. There is stuff going on on Threnody too, it shares some similarities.
