If you are somehow out of the loop, here's the epigraph for Words of Radiance Chapter 84: The One Who Saves
NOTE: IF YOU CAN'T OPEN THE SPOILER TAGS, QUOTE THIS POST AND READ WHAT'S INSIDE
We had a whole thread
about decoding this, and stuff was on fire, but now we know what it means. Read on at your own peril!
So. A few things of note:
- "Hold the secret" suggests a physical object. Yes, it could be a metaphor for "Learn the secret," but I believe this is not the case.
- This "secret" broke the original Knights Radiant. This implies knowledge, information.
- So far, I am inclined to believe that there is a physical object that represents the piece of information because of which the Ordens initiated the Recreance.
- The second sentence implies that this "secret" can still be acquired.
My first thought? Gavilar's voidsphere. I don't have much in the way of reasoning, but it's like a nuke on the mantle. So let's say the sphere is actually an old artifact, one that the Radiants either created or found. Created would be my guess. I used to think that the sphere holds one of the Unmade, but could even one of them subvert the entire organization of the Radiants? Maybe the voidsphere is much more powerful than even that and holds a Splinter of Odium?
I need to think about this some more...[/quote]
