** Something along the lines of "I will accept that I cannot save everyone," does seem likely, based on the predicament he was in at the time that Syl wanted him to say it.

**Actually, as of Oathbringer, this is [[spoiler: confirmed, as the term Voidbringer was originally used by the Parshendi to refer to the human refugees, especially Radiants, that came to Roshar.]]

** As of ''Literature/{{Oathbringer}}'', Taravangian is working for Odium, so while he may not be the Champion, this isn't completely wrong.


Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Timbre is Eshonai]]

* The ancient Parsh become spren after their physical bodies die, so why wouldn't that happen with the modern version? The spren appears near Eshonai's body, is attached to Venli, and communicates though the old, non-Odium rhythms. After Kholinar falls (and a lot of Parshmen die in the battle), the Fused are specifically on the lookout for spren matching Timbre's description - more evidence for Timbre being a dead Parsh.

** Alternately, it's possible that the Nightwatcher misunderstood what Lift was asking for. Perhaps Lift said something along the lines of "I want to stay the same forever, like you," and the Nightwatcher fixed on the "like you" part and caused Lift to exist partially in the Cognitive and partially in the Physical, like spren do.
*** ''Literature/{{Oathbringer}}'' does indicate the Nightwatcher sometimes has trouble understanding the wishes she gets.

[[WMG: Ideals of the Knights Radiant]]
* The fourth ideal of the Windrunners: "I cannot save them all, but all I can save, I will." Kaladin had trouble with the "cannot save them all" part.

* Also, it's not confirmed yet, but there's certainly building evidence. [[spoiler: Deadeye spren usually just kind of wander around aimlessly in Shadesmar near the equivalent location to their corpse in the real world. Mayalaran defended Adolin in a fight in Shadesmar, and later he managed to not just hear her name, but summon her in less than ten heartbeats.]]

to:

* [[spoiler: Mayalaran, his blade, is a deadeye Cultivationspren, and if he restores her by bonding with her, he will become an Edgedancer in the process. Which is rather appropriate, considering the Second Ideal of that order is "I will remember those who have been forgotten."]]



[[WMG: Adolin's Blade]]

* Adolin will eventually restore [[spoiler: Mayalaran, who is a deadeye Cultivationspren, by bonding with her and becoming an Edgedancer in the process. After all, the Second Ideal of that order is "I will remember those who have been forgotten."]]

** Jossed in ''Oathbringer'' [[spoiler: they're Kaladin's "squires", and lose their powers if he's absent. It's implied that all the Radiant orders (perhaps ''except'' the Bondsmiths, who don't really add to their numbers]] create these, as Shallan gains Vathah as a squire too.]]

to:

** Jossed as of ''Oathbringer'', [[spoiler: it contains one of the Unmade. The "perfect" gems capable of trapping them are fairly mundane in the Cognitive realm, so it's highly unlikely they're Dawnshards.]]



* While the ultimate goal of this exercise is to destroy Alethkar as a nation, Odium/some other enemy will chalk it up as a victory if it gets Adolin to "realize" that he was right after all despite the ending of Book One, the Codes were created solely to quash dissent in Old Alethea, and his father's goal to refound the Knights Radiant is simply a delusional TragicDream.

to:

** Technically confirmed ''Oathbringer'' in that [[spoiler: he never received anything from the Nightwatcher, but from Cultivation herself, but also that losing memory of her was part of the boon, with the curse being that the memories would return.]]




to:

** Confirmed in ''Oathbringer'' [[spoiler: he becomes a Knight Radiant and Dalinar's bodyguard, going against the rest of the Skybreakers who do side with Odium. Obviously he doesn't consider himself redeemed.]]




to:

** Jossed in ''Oathbringer'', [[spoiler: Taravangian asked for both compassion and intelligence, and his curse is that he can't have them both at the same time.]]




to:

** Sort of confirmed in ''Oathbringer'', [[spoiler: what he thinks is the Diagram's plan utterly fails, but it appears the Diagram predicted this and had a much more modest backup plan.]] The story's not concluded though.



** Or not.

to:

** Or not.
Semi-confirmed in ''Oathbringer'', [[spoiler: Elhokar is killed while swearing the First Ideal and Hoid then finds a Cryptic hiding in the ruins of the palace, presumably the spren he was bonding with.]]




to:

** Jossed at least in the short term [[spoiler: Dalinar never considers using the Honorblade and gives it to Bridge Four to practice their Windrunning while Kaladin is absent, then it's stolen.]]







to:

** Jossed in ''Oathbringer'', [[spoiler: it was the revelation that the parshmen were the original inhabitants of Roshar combined with a dying Honor saying they would destroy Roshar.]]



*** actually the in-world organization came first, Brandon suggested the name for the fansite just before WoK came out (they were going to call it Hoid's Compendium).

** Jossed in ''Oathbringer'', [[spoiler: Cultivation's shardpool (or Perpendicularity as they refer to it) is a pool in the Horneater peaks.]]



* {{Jossed}} by WordOfGod, but he added that a theory about Nightwatcher being a remnant of Cultivation, like [[spoiler:Stormfather is a remnant of Honor]], was "on the right track."
* The Nightwatcher has been referred to as both genders, so that's not reliable.

a separate entity.]]



** Semi-confirmed. [[spoiler:Taravangian's interlude makes it clear that The Thrill is a product of something called Nergaoul, which seems like a powerful voidspren. It seems similar to Moelach, the thing that causes the Death Rattles, also mentioned in that chapter.]]
