Feel free to discuss anything up to where I've read without spoiler bars. If you want to talk about future events, I must kindly ask you to spoil relevant things. Also, super small things don't necessarily need to kept hush imo. Just like... big things. >_> I'll leave that to your best judgment.

As of the start of this topic, I have finished the interludes between part 3 and 4, so feel free to talk about anything up to CHAPTER 88.

It's believed by some that the General in interlude 10 between part 3 and 4 is a Surgebinder. Also I don't think we've had much information about Parsh gemhearts confirmed.

I was about to ask about the Herdazian interlude. What was the purpose, to introduce the General, or the "Hog" at the end? What IS the hog? I imagine it will appear again.

It could be either or both. Or just to show tension building up in those areas.

Yeah, I guess his trickery with breaking out of the cuffs could have been Surgebinding of some type. It would be awesome to see more of him, he was a fun character lol.

Part 4 features chapters from Adolin, Shallan, Kaladin, and Dalinar, our usual suspects. But also Navani (yesssss), Szeth (figured he'd have to show up eventually), Taravangian (probably more genius/a****** Tara, but at least it'll move his plot forward), and Venli as a regular.

Chapter 88 - Voices
Dalinar, flashback

Dalinar has this thought: "(Gavilar) needs something to revitalize him. A hunt, maybe." LOL. William II, a spoiler in Game of Thrones, and hundreds of dead CK2 characters would like to have a word with you.

Yeah, nah, you don't get over something like burning your wife alive.

Sadeas actually pulled through to cover Dalinar's ass. When he's not being a s***head, he's actually a nice guy. Too bad he's a s***head 99% of the time. Well, he's a dead s***head now, but you get the idea...

Unsurprisingly, fire triggers his PTSD. Aww, poor Dalinar. :( I wonder if he's okay with warming fabrials, though. That might be the only way he can stay warm!

Renarin is burning some incense with a smell that also triggers memories of Evi. I wonder if Renarin is oblivious to Dalinar's issues, or if he's burning it because it also reminds him of mother, and he wants to smell it. I could see it go either way for an autistic kid.

Dalinar is looking for the strong stuff, but also doesn't want to make a fool of himself by going out in public or to the kitchens. He needs a stash. (He really needs AA).

Once again, Dalinar blames Evi for his own mistakes and I want to yell at him, but at the same time it's just so pitiable that I can't exert the energy. (Also to be fair, Evi DID do something pretty dumb in trying to negotiate with the enemy.)

Adolin is dressed like a dandy while the other soldiers are actually dressed like soldiers. LOL Dalinar actually called him a fop! Did I ever use that word for Adolin? I am fond of the word fop, so it wouldn't surprise me if I did. *checks* XD Ya damn right I did, and what a great prediction! From my chapter 69 write up:This damn fop would be an embarrassment to Dalinar of ten years ago. Oh Jesus, it's little things like this that tickle me in the right way.

But Dalinar is having a fatherly moment wherein he decides that he wouldn't trade one Adolin for 100 properly dressed soldiers. Awwww

Apparently they have a Beggar's Porch which seems like a great place to catch diseases and/or get assassinated by dissidents who are jealous about you living in a nice comfy castle while they eat s***, but hey, whatever makes the king happy. And apparently Dalinar thinks THIS is a good place to get s***faced? Are you drunk? Well, I guess that's the idea...

There's a beggar named Ahu. Just give him a spider donut and he'll let you f*** off. Spider cider works, too. He probably has spiders in his hair. "Somehow he always had a bottle with him." SPIDER CIDER.

So he's a schizophrenic. Or some other disorder that has auditory hallucinations. Could be drugs. Or he's the wisest one among us, the only one who can hear the voice of God. Praise to Ahu! He's definitely more eloquent than some of the folks I've met on drugs, so I'll give him that. I don't know what Aven begah is supposed to mean.

He mentions some names: The Black Fisher, The Spawning Mother, the Faceless, and Moelach. I remember talking about a Fisher King Unmade when I made my list, Spawning Mother could be Midnight Mother or Sja-Anat imo. Faceless is generic enough to be anyone. Moelach is Death Rattles-man. I really wonder if this man is nutso or actually hearing the Unmade throughout the world. I suppose if the screaming one were nearby, he'd hear it.

Dalinar eavesdrops on Adolin and Gavilar talking and Gavi mentions that Dalinar misses Evi. Dalinar denies it internally, but come on dude, no one just goes and gets s***faced with hobos for no damn good reason.

He hears a grown man's voice and thinks it's Elhokar wtf.

I reckon Spawning Mother would be Midnight Mother as she outright creates things, Sja-Anat simply corrupts that which already exists.

Faceless is surely these fine gentlemen!

Elhokar's actually 20ish at this point I believe. He seems a lot younger than he is because he spends so much of the series behaving like a manchild.
