    Sari-Not-Sorry

    Is the Unknown Wanderer mentioned in Of Dawn and Darkness Valin? If not, will it be revealed who that is later?

    Will Wight

    It is!

    Sari-Not-Sorry

    Is it more of an Easter Egg or does it have potential ramifications of him visiting (and escaping from!) that iteration?

    Will Wight

    It's an Easter Egg, but it did still canonically happen.

    Can all territories grow in power like valinhall. And how powerful is Simon overall compared to the rest of amalgam?

    Will Wight

    All Territories can grow in power, yes!

    Compared to the rest of Amalgam, Simon is extremely powerful for a short period of time. One of the most powerful active participants in the world.

    Can people at the peak of their progression on Amalgam manifest their Territory on the physical world? Similar to how Incarnations are able to

    Will Wight

    There are ways to learn abilities like that, yes! But it's not like every advanced Helgard Traveler can turn dust to snow, for instance.

    What is an amazing idea for a book series that you are never going to write

    Will Wight

    Man, who knows?

    I'd love to write a Minecraft/Terraria-style LitRPG. There are webnovels and light novels like it, but nothing I could find in the English LitRPG scene (though granted, I looked last year).

    To those of you reading this comment later: please don't respond with suggestions for LitRPG books with Minecraft elements in them. This was an idea I liked at the time but am not pursuing. I don't need suggestions.

    What core technique does yerin have? It's never been mentioned?

    Will Wight

    That's true, and it's not a spoiler, it just never came up.

    I don't remember the name off the top of my head, but her Jade cycling technique focuses on increasing power output and madra control. Like her Iron body, it's made with her future advancement in mind: so that she can use more powerful techniques more easily and they'll hit even harder.

    Lindon mentioned the healing with the ironheart uses more madra. Is this more total madra to heal the same wound or more like Ironbody uses 5 mana points per second for 240 seconds. Ironheart uses 20 mara points per second for 4 seconds to heal same wound.

    Will Wight

    I'm not going to lie to you: it's been a long day, and my eyes kind of glaze over when I see numbers.

    The Bloodforged Iron body was really intended to fight intruders to the body, particularly poison, and it heals as kind of a secondary effect. In simple terms, the Iron Heart makes that secondary effect stronger.

    How much Doom would Shuffles announce for you given your current condition?

    (Also, what flavors of icecream do Eithan, Yerin, Mercy, and Lindon prefer?)

    Will Wight

    Minimal. He would probably sniff around me until he determined that I don't have fish, repeat anything unfortunate that I said, and then go to sleep.

    Yerin: chocolate

    Mercy: double fudge brownie chunk

    Lindon: tutti frutti

    Eithan: your ice cream cone when you're not looking

    Jazzy-Kandra

    Just the ice cream cone, or would he eat the ice cream in it too?

    Will Wight

    All of it. It's his now.

    • Is madra similar to magic in chinese novels, where there's some profound truth and power is determined by how close you are to learning it, or is it more of a "people think it, so that's how it works" kind of system?

    • Is dross doing what drudges do?

    Will Wight

    1.) More the first one than the second one.

    2.) Somewhat, yes!

    Skeletickles

    Have you played Dishonored? If so, how do you think the Great Elders or the Abidan would react if the Outsider was transported to Asylum?

    Also, Daud and his Whalers vs the Consultants. Who do you think wins?

    Will Wight

    The Abidan would react swiftly and intensely.

    As for Daud and the Whalers, it's been way too long since I've played Dishonored, so I'm going to side with the Consultants because I'm the one asked. Home team advantage.

    Apologies if you've answered this before but what do you do on release day/week?

    I can only imagine the nerves with having something you've put your heart and soul into being out in the world and being critically reviewed.

    Do you check the sub like an f5 maniac? Seclude yourself in a room for a week and ignore everything online? Asking for figures from the publisher?

    You've already made my day today so whether you answer or not thanks again for that!

    Will Wight

    Constantly respond to fans and check reviews. Also I celebrate, of course.
