* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Weirdly, wines come in not just "red" and "white" but an entire chromatic range, each known for its particular strength and piquance. This is probably another case of CallASmeerpARabbit, as it's unlikely Roshar has grapes as we'd know them. The examples we've seen so far do seem to fit a possible pattern: all are among the seven traditional colors of the rainbow (ROYGBIV) in ascending order of alcohol content. Orange and yellow are mild, while blue and violet are much more intoxicating.

* RoomFullOfCrazy: [[spoiler: King Taravingian]] has one which was written [[spoiler: on a day when his mutable intelligence was astronomically high]]. It has become something between a master plan and holy scripture for his followers.

The story follows several viewpoint characters: [[TheHero Kaladin]], a BrokenAce with ChronicHeroSyndrome who trained as [[TheMedic a surgeon]] but [[ChildSoldiers joined the army]] instead; [[OldSoldier Dalinar Kholin]], a [[WarriorPrince Highprince]] and [[FourStarBadass war general]] trying to [[TheFettered follow the old codes of chivalry]]; Shallan Davar, a [[BlueBlood noblewoman]] who is trying to save her [[ImpoverishedPatrician destitute house]]; and Szeth, a man whose honor requires him to be an ExtremeDoormat for others, who we first meet as he is sent to murder the Alethi king.

* {{Badass}}: Many. Any Shardbearer is guaranteed to be awesome by the nature of the armaments. Kaladin and Szeth stand out in particular, and Kaladin isn't even a Shardbearer. Dalinar, on the other hand, is acknowledged as badass even for a Shardbearer -- at least, when he's not [[TheFettered holding back]].
