I've been wondering: Should we put the Cosmere-centric characters, such as the Shards and Hoid, in a Character page under Brandon Sanderson?

My reasons for this: - Rayse (Odium), who has influence in Sel and Roshar both, is listed on both, but only characterized in our The Stormlight Archive page, due to "appearing" there first. - There is mention of Ati (Ruin), Aona (Devotion), and Skai (Dominion) in The Stormlight Archive by way of the Letter, in spite of them being from Mistborn and Elantris, respectively. - Hoid, who has a part in various series, is listed separately.

It seems to make sense to instead list the Cosmeric Forces on a page here. As for other Worldhopping characters, only listing their parts in the Seventeenth Shard, or whatever other reasons, and linking otherwise to their respective pages of origin.

Is this a good idea or no?

I think that would be good, especially if it's done now, rather than after the Cosmere continues to grow.

I'd been hearing about Brandon Sanderson for a few years now, most loudly from his work on The Wheel of Time — but it took me this long to figure out that he's the same Brandon Sanderson I used to play Magic with in college. Huh.

Anyway, I remember him saying back then, when he talked about writing, that he very much wanted Michael Whelan to do a cover for one of his books. Does anybody know whether he managed this before Whelan stopped doing commissioned work?

Yes- The Way of Kings, book one of The Stormlight Archive, features a very beautiful Whelan cover. And that you used to play Magic with him is very cool.

You knew Brandon Sanderson? Jaw drop.
