* {{Doorstopper}}: The original title of the second book was going to be ''The Book of Endless (or Infinite) Pages'', until Brandon's editor pointed out that the title might be a bit on the nose for a 1001-page book. As it happens, this second book--which was eventually named ''Literature/WordsOfRadiance''--apparently clocks in at 10'''88'''. Any longer, ''it would have been unpublishable''.

''Oathbringer'' bests that at 1264 pages.

* FictionalCurrency: "Spheres", which are glass beads with gemstones embedded in them. The spheres themselves are always the same size, but the gems inside them come in three different sizes; chips, marks, and broams. Nine different gemstones are used; their relative value is based on their usefulness in Soulcasting (see MagicAIsMagicA, below). To make things even ''more'' complicated, sometimes different names are used for the gems. [[labelnote:Details]]Spheres are roughly the size of a person's thumbnail, usually with one side slightly flattened so you can set them down without them rolling away. Chips are the smallest denominations, with just a tiny shard of gemstone; marks are larger, worth five chips; broams are the largest. Different gems used include diamond (the lowest), garnet, sapphire, ruby, and emerald (the highest). One emerald broam (the highest possible denomination) is worth one thousand diamond chips (the lowest possible denomination), and the system seems to be based on multiples of five. Their alternate names are descriptive; diamonds are "clear", garnets are "blood", sapphires are "sky", and rubies are "fire" -- e.g., a clearchip is a diamond chip, a firemark is a ruby mark, etc.[[/labelnote]]

* BizarreSeasons: It's not terribly obvious, but the seasons appear in random order, and change every few week, with a string of 40 days of the same season being considered unnaturally long.
