Ladies and Gentlemen, I present My Review of Destiny 3

Dateline: August 13, 2021

Against my better judgment, I'll put the TL;DR right up front here:
TL;DR: Now that Destiny is being designed by BUNGiE's actual game designers - i.e., gamers at heart - instead of being defined by their marketing and finance departments, they're shipping a game that we're never going to want to stop playing, and we'll be dragging every one of our friends and their friends into playing it, buying them consoles with our own EIP cards along the way, if necessary.
------------------
(Note: I've been reading this in SkillUp voice, just for fun)
I had the rare opportunity to play about 5 hours on a pre-release version Destiny 3 this past week.
As the saying goes: This is my report.
Right up front, let me say that although it may have been obvious to a few, it came as a huge shock to me to discover that the whole "MATTER" thing actually turned out to be this almost perfectly executed re-imagining of the Destiny universe, released a full YEAR sooner than anyone expected. Nice smoke screen. Well played, BUNGiE... well played, indeed! My hat is permanently off to Chris Barrett and his crew!
Let me now count the ways in which Destiny has improved since BUNGiE made the decision to abandon the collection of industry fads, behavioral marketing gimmicks and band-aid fixes they've been using to keep their internal bean counters happy for the past 4 years, and finally get back to making A GREAT GAME.
We can start pretty much anywhere, since almost every aspect of this new release is absolutely amazing. But let's start with the one thing everyone cares about:

Loot

All through the last two years of D2 you wanted a great Gnawing Hunger, right? Right?? It's been a staple in the game forever now. But a good one can be hard to find. Loot grinding in Destiny is a story all its own. Some players love it, some are sick to death of it. Either way, the fact is that in the past, except for a rare few stretches (lookin' at you, Chalice of Opulence), getting a specific item has always been left to the sole discretion of The RNGenie. And even though you may have finally found and placed an item in your Collections, it's mostly there just to taunt you, because... "menemenemenemeneh.. random rolls", making the whole Collections thing utterly useless for all practical purposes.
D3's answer?

Golden Age Blueprints

One of the most interesting, key features of this new release comes from the discovery of Golden Age Blueprints - [a discovery you'll be instrumental in revealing, although at great personal cost, during the campaign] - which will replace your Collections in every way that matters.
In D3, once you have procured the required Golden Age Blueprint and stored it in that big filing cabinet in your apartment in the Tower, Banshee will now happily CRAFT as many randomly rolled copies of any weapon you like, as long as you have the 'print, the necessary Glimmer and materials. These are materials which are naturally finite in your consumables inventory, but which can literally be found in every alley, every hallway, every cave, on every rooftop, dropping from every third-ish downed enemy and from every junk item you decide to dismantle, in random amounts.
And while we're on the subject, if you think you've found all the materials sources out there in the world? Well, you haven't, because new ones are cropping up in weird and genuinely out-of-the-way locations with every reset. And one of those chests really DOES contain that jackpot of 5,000 of the same gizmos you've been burning through lately (because watching Banshee finally do Real Gunsmithing just happens to be your thing). Just remember that you're going to need that matching Key to unlock it when you find it.
Eh... one caveat though - as Asher used to say: try not to DIE, because your Ghost is still recovering from the events that occurred during the Series Finale of D2. Among other things you'll discover as you go, this affects any planetary or crafting materials and other resources you may have on you when you're out there. If you haven't brought these things back to the Tower and put them in your Vault, or shipped them back using transmat and your ship's autopilot (aka Extraction - a tactic that presents its own seriously thorny set of risks and challenges), anything acquired since your last deposit will ALL now simply evaporate when you're resurrected by your Ghost. Yes, dying out there in the world now actually has a tangible downside. So... fair warning.

So... just more RNG then?

Of course you're wondering: Will the random roll on the crafted item you get, suck? Sure. Sometimes. And sometimes it'll be great. There's no longer any arbitrary weighting involved here, but The RNGenie must be appeased, after all. Life, even with Space Magic, is still frequently random.
The important bit here is that the odds may not always be in your favor, but they are no longer stacked so heavily against you. You no longer have to sit through the Umbral Decryption of 42 False Promiseses waiting for that one Falling Guillotine to drop (so to speak), and hope that ONE CHANCE at a drop gave you a usable roll. Crafting gives players added control over the RPG / progression of their chosen character without the unbridled "joy" of making farming a real-life part-time job. And in the process this gives players new reasons to engage with the rest of the game's content.
How so? Well, instead of playing an endless numbers game, doing the same thing over and over and over, hoping for the drop you're looking for, while you CAN still do that, you NOW also have the option to do a quest or side mission that ultimately gets you the Golden Age Blueprint you need or want (yes, you read that right - see below). Once procured, you add that 'print to your file, for the stuff needed to create the builds you're going to be using out in the world.

Enhancement

On top of that, whatever you get - whether it was crafted, looted from some chest, dropped by some boss, or gifted by a fellow fireteam member in a strike through the new sharing feature - can almost ALWAYS be made better...
Don't like the intrinsic perk or all the stats that helmet rolled with? No problem. Pick one attribute. Any one. If you have saved a better stat or perk from some previous weapon, and registered it by donating that weapon at Holliday's Enhancement Bench, stop by to have a chat and she'll do the replacement for you. And even though Zavala has artificially hamstrung her ability in this regard, in that he only allows for ONE stat or perk to be replaced on any item (this could change - there's a Tower petition circulating...), it means that if your drop has everything but 'X' needed to make it perfect, once you eventually find 'X' on some other item of the same type, even though that's going to take time and effort on your part (in some cases... a LOT), you're all set - just go see Amanda.
Weapons. Armor. Works the same. Want a MOD SLOT on that helmet instead of a top-level stat? Ask Holliday. Yes, Enhancement DOES have a Glimmer and Material cost, but she's got to pay the bills, right? And of course there are the Tower Taxes. And new sparrows aren't just transmatted by Fenchurch from some alternate reality, you know? The price is there to keep things reasonable, it's just not going to empty your consumables inventory unless you really want it to.
Bottom Line: Destiny is a looter, yes, but it's ALSO a legitimate RPG now, and you have a new level of agency that allows you to CRAFT your own loot as well as hunt for it in the wild the way we have in the past, and you can enhance your stuff based on other items you may have found.

b-b-b-b-b-But muh GRIND!!!

What? Worried about getting that "god roll" without the endless grind you've come to depend upon, to fill in for actual quality content? Worried you'll get that Carrot before you've experienced sufficient pain from the Stick? Well I'm happy to tell you that's just your Is/Ought and Appeal to Tradition conditioning from previous games, screaming in your ear: "but... but that's the way it's ALWAYS been!!1!!" It's a trap! Nothing in the world HAS to be "X" simply because it's labeled "Y". Bruce Jenner taught us that centuries ago.
If you're the addictive type who believes all video games must work like a slot machine in order to be "rewarding" - including the sort who thinks everyone else should be forced to play the way you do - hey, not to worry. You'll never be forced to craft a single item. Plus - BONUS! - RNG is still a significant factor; it's just no longer THE ONLY factor. That said, you're just going to have to accept the reality that other people value their limited time. Furthermore, you're not my real dad, so kindly stop telling me how I should be forced to -grind- play just because YOU have found a new dopamine trigger that puts you in your 'happy place'. Instead, be glad there's a slightly more deterministic OPTION in the hunt for better loot, because you're eventually going to need quality gear to succeed at the higher difficulty levels later.
That artificial "power level" number floating on your inventory screen? Yeah, that's not going to help you any more.

On to mods...

Want a scope that increases crit damage or stability? A mag that increases fire rate, reload speed, or which ACTUALLY significantly increases the standard mag size (i.e., not by just three rounds)? Better accuracy or increased damage from a grip or muzzle attachment? How about a bump-stock that turns that awesome Scout into a thrall-thrashing AR? There are several to choose from in every one of these categories. Plus some that work directly with your preferred Class in various ways, like a suppressor that causes melee-affected enemies to explode/AOE. Find the blueprint, craft the mod and it's unlocked forevermore.
Oh, and the price to apply a mod? 0 Glimmer - you already paid to create/unlock it. Wait, what? No annoying surcharge every time I switch scopes? No Masterworking bullshit? No. There was never anything "masterful" about Masterworking. Dumbest misuse of the term ever. No, your gear is fully customizable out of the box (so to speak). No more mindless grinding just to add a tiny extra bit of customization. Save the mindless grinding for what really matters (to you).

So how do I get these GA Blueprints for mods and other items?

Answer: you acquire these as random drops from various activities and also as Targeted Loot, e.g., side missions...
Sorry, forgot to mention - in addition to the main campaign story missions, we have AN ARRAY of side missions now. We used to call these "Adventures", but there are a lot more of them now and they no longer just drop -two tokens and a blue- 500 Glimmer and a blue when you're done with them. Think of these, I guess, as The Adventures That Actually Matter Now - TATAMN. Like CTATODL but, different.
Each side mission features a blueprint for a specific weapon, armor piece or mod. Want the +10 or +20 round mag? Simple. Go run that side mission, which is identified (if there is one - some of these are just random drops from P.E.s, Lost Sectors, etc.) on the new Blueprint File entry slot where the 'print will go, once acquired. Just remember... the side missions? Yeah, don't be misled - they're frequently as involved and difficult as the campaign story missions, since a lot of them are dedicated to actively experiencing the parts of the Destiny story that used to be buried in cryptic, incoherent walls of "lore" text that so many players actively ignored and/or didn't even know about.
A bunch of these side missions actually even require finding and traversing the correct path through The NEW Infinite Forest (recently resurrected from the DCV, apparently) in order to get to the historic event depicted in that mission. I personally love the ones where you [re-enact various past luminaries' experiences during the Battles of Twilight Gap and - even though I'm a die-hard Hunter main - Six Fronts]. The use of D1's original music is amazing in those. You'll probably have your personal faves as well. Either way, knowing how a story ends may "feel" safe, just remember these are Vex Simulations of past events, and have the potential to end very differently from stories The Speaker used to tell to scare the children...
Beyond this, in addition to their full, D1-sized gear and weapon inventories, which are made incrementally available to you by furthering their respective goals over time, the NM, DO and FWC faction leaders seem to have an endless supply of blueprint-rewarding bounties tied to RE-running the side mission simulations at various difficulty levels - some for mods, some weapons, etc. They're not cheap, though, and they only get a new one once a week.
That said, every few weeks or so one of the factions will offer a highly sought-after blueprint in return for churning through a hefty set of tasks they need help with. This might require testing experimental weapons (some of which might just, eh, explode), trying new tactics using class skills, or collecting stuff like crates of Hive Thrall Claws (NO idea what Arach Jalaal does with these smelly things and, frankly, I don't WANT to know...). Details? You'll have to ask them - they keep that stuff pretty close to the vest and it's changing all the time. So far, however, all the ones I saw can be completed in PvE OR PvP, which is a nice change.
Seriously, isn't this more fun and rewarding than a Collection that's really just a useless, static checklist?
Same goes for mods on gear, BTW. And yes you can craft a new, randomly rolled instance of every single piece of armor in the game once you have the blueprint, as many as you have the materials for. Want yet another reason to go out and shoot stuff? No problem. Go hunt down more 'prints and collect more mats.
Worried about so-called "power creep"? Don't be. Because the RPG customization on weapons and gear is so expansive now, it's no longer necessary for the various arms manufacturers to churn out endless series of 30 or 40 re-skinned, slightly different "archetypes" of the same basic weapon class. And new stuff that's introduced doesn't necessarily render its predecessors obsolete - it simply gives you alternate choices for getting the job done.
Also, that new GH blueprint you just got from Hideo at the last Faction Rally? The one that bumps max crit damage up by an additional 5% over previous specs? Yeah, one of the required elements needed to build using that 'print is an existing GH. No more "sunsetting". Instead, you literally Trade Up. Or not. Your choice.

Ran out of stuff to do?

Ha, very funny. No, you didn't. Not only did we work our way up through FIVE levels of Open World Difficulty during the campaign getting our Guardian from lvl 1 to lvl 50, but once we reach "end game", we NOW have the ability to set our Open World Difficulty to one of FOUR different new difficulty settings - Normal, Hard, Challenging & Heroic - each of which has significant impact on the nature of the open world experience and the quality of loot that drops in that context. Every level of player from casual to hard core, kinderguardian to seasoned vet, now has a setting they can adjust to their taste. No more dumbing the ENTIRE game down to coddle the Lowest Common Denominator.
Also, there's no longer Gigabytes of content taking up space on your hard drive that you can't access, because every single campaign mission is not only replayable, but has the same 4 difficulty options via a standalone selector, which changes up the nature of the mission itself as you graduate through the levels (i.e., no, we no longer just add a "Champion" that requires a special mod, and pretend that's a new version of the mission). Oh yeah, some missions also feature an added selectable level of difficulty: Legendary. Bored? Run a Legendary. Seriously. Still bored? Join up with a friend who's running in a Heroic level open world when you're used to doing Normal. It will wake you the eff up quick AND show you just how far you need to go in terms of enhancing your build and the quality of your gear. Conversely, grab a friend and help them get better gear.

Which Class?

You now have SIX to choose from (not just 3), each with a unique Super and an individually-tailored skill tree that's fully activated through XP and other means I didn't have time to investigate. Want to maximize effectiveness on ARs, Shotties and Sidearms? Reset your skill tree. Explosive damage? Ditto. Cost to reset? 10,000 Glimmer? 20,000? No. Zero. Could the skill trees be better? Absolutely. And they will be. Right now they're still inferior to what post-D1 should have been. But neither are they a dumbed-down collection of canned skill presets that look like they were designed for pre-schoolers and Mark Noseworthy (sorry Mark). As more nodes are added in the future, and "meaningful choices" must be made in selecting which ones to activate - including new ones that actually change the way your Super behaves - they will eventually grow to become the sort of skill trees worthy of your status as a bona fide God-Killer.

Enemy AI?

Yeah, uhm... fair warning again: this is not your Dad's Destiny. In addition to seriously messing with your Ghost's feature set, the events leading to the finale of D2 had some pretty remarkable effects on the system's locals, as well as the new hordes that have been appearing from who-knows-where. They will flank you. At every opportunity. They'll try to surround you, use focused fire, and use cover to their advantage. Getting overwhelmed and want to retreat? They will chase you down. If outnumbered, they might retreat to find others of their kind nearby. Also, squads of them will just randomly appear pretty much anywhere in the open world and sometimes even right in the middle of a Crucible match, transporting crates of heavy ammo.
As difficulty level increases, the enemy A.I. will even anticipate your movements, heal themselves the same way you do and make use of some of the same high-tech gear you have. Also, every so often, elite "Dark Guardians" will come after you in pairs to steal your stuff, like a WWE Tag Team. No, they're not actual players despite how they behave. They're A.I. With functional "I".
Ultimately, you'll be glad that ALL ammo reserves have been bumped up considerably, and that you no longer see reserve ammo quietly disappear when you switch, say, from one sniper to another sniper... because you're gonna need it.

Power-level grinding?

Please let all your former clanmates who are still off playing CP2077 know: the power-level grind is gone. New content as it appears might require a new build strategy, though, and possibly even stuff that you don't have (yet), because it's acquired as part of the most recent DLC campaign. So just keep that in mind. Power level? No longer a factor once you've completed the main campaign, because that's the only stretch where it was ever actually useful.

Cosmetics?

Covered. And you don't need to spend a (real) dime to get them (although you certainly can if you're so inclined - there's actually an entire mall filled with beautiful, useless junk you can spend real money on. Just remember: other players will see you using/wearing this stuff.).
Want to apply a specific shader to all your gear at once? There's a button for that. All your weapons? A button for that too. Oh, and did I mention that shaders are unlockables, not consumables? You're welcome. 9-position emote wheel? Done. And it works as easily on PC as it does with a console D-Pad. Also, ghost shells and sparrows can benefit from Amanda's Enhancement Bench in the same ways as weapons and gear.

How about PvP?

Well, for one, you'll be excited to hear that PvP is no longer the reason we can't have nice things.
There's "Quickplay" Crucible that randomly cycles through short stretches of SBMM and CBMM to create lobbies, so that the impact of one MM scheme never makes one pine for the other. Stomping or getting stomped? Just keep playing and things will change. Meanwhile, team composition has been normalized. No more solos playing 6 stacks, etc. Quickplay is where anything available in PvE is useable in PvP. Anything. No restrictions. No nerfs, buffs, tweaks or other "balance" nonsense. No more shrinking sniper rifle mag sizes in PvE because they're "O.P." in Crucible. It's basically a free-for-all. Like playing Mayhem? Well this is pretty close. Pretty much anything goes.
Also, the maps are MUCH larger now. It no longer feels like every match is crammed into a swiss cheese, with a sliding shotgunner waiting around every corner. Have fun, but don't forget to play the objective, because even though this is Quickplay, and it's pretty casual, a loss also erases any progress you've made during that match on that bounty you're trying to complete. Sorry. The good news is that those completed bounties may take longer to finish, but they're a LOT more valuable now, especially since you can now consume a portion of your Valor rank to upgrade them.
Then we have Competitive Crucible, which is primarily SBMM and if you want to rise through the competitive ranks, you make the commitment to keep playing and do just that. Did I mention... it's C-O-M-P-E-T-I-T-I-V-E. That is, it's NOT REQUIRED. Just like the OPTIONAL matchmaking that we finally have for every activity in the game, including raids, IT'S OPTIONAL. It's actual Competition. Like when you CHOSE to go out for the basketball team. Or didn't. Not necessarily for everyone. Also, participation in this mode is NOT REQUIRED.
I'm told that the Competitive system only downshifts to CBMM if the concurrent player population there drops below a certain level. So as long as BUNGiE does their job and keeps the player population healthy, you'll usually be playing against Guardians at roughly your own level until your stats start to improve, at which point you're bumped up to the next tier and get to feel like a n00b again.
There are seals. There are emblems. There are titles, shaders, sparrows, armor ornaments, ghost shells, emotes, ghost projections, finishers, ships and various other geegaws that can ONLY be acquired as awards from Competitive Crucible now, but no weapons, gear or other "ritual" or "pinnacle" rewards other than stuff that can drop anywhere else in the game. Got gud? That's just friggin' Awesome. You get bragging rights and various cosmetic accoutrements that show you're A PvP God with Real Skillz™... as opposed to someone with a clever build (thanks to above-average RNG), an exotic hand cannon from a raid, or that filthy grenade launcher that you acquired by running 400 playlist strikes other players didn't have the time to complete because they have real jobs and real kids.

Level Playing Field, Evolved

Happily, in D3 the servers are now genuinely dedicated and the weapons and gear in Competitive Crucible are curated, just like Halo's were. Curated by whom? By the Guardians who play it, 'natch - specifically those whose Glory Rank has lifted them to voting status, which gives them a vote on what specific weapons and gear will be made available in the next Competitive round, democratically. As far as weapons and gear go, when you enter the Competitive fray, you select from the same rack of lethal tools that everyone else in Competitive has access to for that match, as determined by the players who engage in it, based on the voting during the previous round of competition (typically lasting 6 weeks - the only vestige of "seasons" I could find in D3 and, interestingly, the ONLY context in which a "season" makes any sense). In D3, the difference between a competitive W or an L NOW comes down to one thing: your skill, not your RNG luck or the amount of free time you have to devote to farming that 'god roll' Uldren's Promise, skill.
Finally, I understand that cheaters, paid carries, recoveries, etc., that are legitimately identified in Competitive by BUNGiE are permanently banned and publicly outed at bungie.net. No exceptions. Just like any IRL Competitive Sport. Now our competitive online gaming athletes can enjoy the same degree of accountability as their IRL counterparts. Nothing will ever completely eliminate determined cheaters but maybe, just maybe, these kinds of changes will finally put Destiny on the eSports map. Only time will tell.

Summing up...

There's so much more to discuss like the new raids and strikes, and the amazing artwork and music that has always been Destiny's hallmark... but the bottom line here is that it's simply unbelievable how much quality and depth was restored to this game once BUNGiE abandoned the "seasonal release" fad (that was aimed solely at steady revenue generation), moved to a streamlined, high-end, third-party, off-the-shelf game engine which they have apparently customized in a few key areas, and focused on creating a GOTY-quality product by returning to the large scale release model that made Halo and so many other games the iconic masterworks that we remember.
I can't wait to email my former clanmates the news.
p.s. oh, and that literal Army of Fucking Beavers? Yeah. Those guys have apparently been retired since we moved back to the original, reconstructed Tower. I didn't run into a single one of them.
-----------------------------------------
Okay, back to reality... yes, of course, this was a somewhat whimsical description of where I'd love to see Destiny go - a satire of sorts. I've held onto it figuring it'll probably be DV'd into oblivion for various reasons but figured... what the heck. Lengthy? You bet. But it should be obvious why this isn't a soundbiteable topic. That said, this is obviously all "IMHO". Gaming is a subjective thing and everyone's going to have their own preference.
There are PLENTY of other legitimate features that can be (and have been) implemented in a game like this. Except for the Crucible stuff (where I added my own SWAG take on how to improve it), almost every single one of the features and mechanics described above has ALREADY been implemented in a game that currently exists, and which has millions of players. The current version of that game - also a sequel - was developed over the course of about three years, by a company roughly the size of BUNGiE, with comparable resources, and which is ALSO working on other projects. If you've played it, you already know the game I've been using as a model here, which shows it's more than feasible.
The last couple years have revealed (at least to me), that a GOTY-quality, open-world looteshooteMMORPG needs legitimate depth. Not "seasons" or season passes or any of the distractions, gimmicks and design restrictions that release model entails. That shit is fine for simple FPS/3PS shooters like Fortnite, Overwatch and PUBG. But paper-thin seasonal releases, repetitive power-level grinding, planned gear obsolescence, time-gated, drip-fed content ... these are the antithesis of the game Destiny was meant to be. NGL, it's been genuinely heartbreaking to watch the franchise regress from its peak in late 2016 / early 2017 to its present state. BUNGiE can do better.

2020 U.S. State Election Betting (Trump vs Biden)

2020 U.S. State Election Betting (Trump vs Biden). I have just checked out 3x sportsbooks and have noticed huge variations between odds for different states. If your bookie offers this market yet it is definitely worth checking out.
The best value I have found (From most risky to least risky as follows) but interested in hearing if anyone else sees value anywhere:
Arizona: Republicans win around $2
Ohio: Republicans win around $1.62 (I feel best value here)
Michigan: Democrats win around $1.65
Texas: Republicans win goes for around $1.30-$1.40

What do we think? Only downside is you're locking your money away for nearly 200 days and no one knows how this corona virus will go.

[Guardian] Inside the Tory Leadership Race: The Willem Interview

[Meta Note] This was written as my press persona. Apologies for the long read wanted to try something different.
On the 7th of April, model-willem was at the height of his power. Having just finished a stint as Acting Prime Minister, and with the resignation of model-mili confirmed, the betting markets and those across Westminster were preparing for a Conservative and Unionist Party leadership election which would be comfortably won by Willem. Few thought 10 days later his dream would be over as he made the announcement he was withdrawing from the race and endorsing Yukub. I sat down with him, and others involved, to discuss 10 days that transformed his career and changed his life.
Sitting down for his first interview, I was struck by the sense of normalcy in his home in Stoke. His Cabinet red box on the dining table, and his partner pjr10th cooking a homemade lasagne in the kitchen, you could be mistaken for thinking this was just a normal Saturday for the household. But looking closely the remnants of the past few days were apparent. The suit he wore for the announcement of his withdrawal from the leadership race hanging up on the living room door frame. A copy of three different newspapers, his face splashed on the front of all of them. Next to the red box, a folder entitled “2020 Leadership Election.” With a cup of tea in hand, I started by asking him just why he got into politics in the first place.
model-willem: I started out as a teacher years ago, but politics always interested me. I wanted to make the world a better place, get people back into work and ensure that they are protected when they can’t manage for themselves.
T: Would it be fair to say your path to the Conservative Party is a long one? From the Liberal Democrats and the Classical Liberal parties first, you eventually ended up here. How did this journey evolve for you and help you develop into who you are.
W: It certainly has been quite the ride with lots of beautiful moments. When I started politics I wasn't sure if the Liberal Democrats or the Classical Liberals were the party I felt most at home at, ideologically speaking. I did choose the Lib Dems because I agreed with most of their ideas and it did me good. Getting to know the do's and don'ts of Westminster in the Lib Dems taught me a lot. My departure to the Classical Liberals was a bit unexpected for most people, but I grew impatient with some of the people that I had to work with within the Executive of the Lib Dems and I found my new safe haven there, got to learn the ropes of Leadership of the party and eventually chose to merge the party into the Conservatives. The Conservatives are a great party and I am very happy to be here, I might be on the left of the party ideologically, but they always welcomed me with open arms.
T: You have served as Conservative Deputy Leader since the merger. How did you find that, as well as the temporary step up to Acting Prime Minister in recent weeks. Stressful, I imagine?
W: The step from being Leader of the Classical Liberals to being Tory DL was a weird one, because you go from leader of a national party and being the face of a brand to being the most junior deputy leader of a party. The most stressful part was the fact so many people within the party often speak against each other, which is good but involves letting people down. Stepping up to acting Prime Minister was a great opportunity and a great experience to step into these amazing shoes of people who I admire for their work, such as Thatcher and Blair for example.
T: When did you first start thinking about wanting to run for the top job?
W: Two or three weeks ago, when I had a conversation with model-mili about his future and the fact he wanted to step down as Leader. I thought, well I can do this, I’ve got the experience and the drive to become the new leader.
T: Take me to the moment that Mili officially resigned. It must have been a daunting moment realising the corridors of power were alive with the suggestion that you were the favourite to win?
W: Well yes of course. The moment it finally happened took me a bit by surprise, right after the Deputy Leadership election. I was finishing my manifesto for the party and our new way forward at that moment, not expecting to be needing it that soon. Being pushed into the spotlight as the favourite was a it expected, but I was always clear from the beginning I wasn’t the only one with good ideas.
-----
After the resignation was confirmed, model-willem was of course not the only one reacting to the news and preparing to run. I got the reaction of the other two leadership contenders, who were put to a vote, on the resignation and why they decided to stand after seeing the rest of the suggested field of members who had confirmed or were thinking of running.
Yukub: However much I like Mili on a personal level, I have had some considerable criticisms on his Leadership and felt the best and most appropriate way to ‘fix’ the issues was by going head on and standing for Leadership myself. If I didn’t see myself as the best candidate - in terms of experience, activity, quality of judgement and so on - I wouldn’t have run. I suppose it was unexpected in some quarters because I’ve been content to serve under a Leader for many years now, confident they’d bring something special and unique to the table, and wholly convinced of their credentials, drive and competence. I suppose now I felt that I, more so than others, should be that Leader. As I outlined in a recent interview, there comes a time in anyone’s political career when they have to make the choice of whether they are to remain in the background, helping out on the side-lines, or if they want to stamp their mark on the party and aim for Leadership. I decided it was time to do the latter.
Brexitglory: As you know I was the latest entry in the campaign, I was watching the race very closely and I felt that there was a space in the debate that had not been filled. Everyone in the party agreed that any one of the candidates would do a good job, but I felt at the time that my passion and my energy was exactly what the party needed to get on the front foot again; that is why I entered the race. I wanted to bring my passion and energy to the very top and help and guide the party with that enthusiasm. I wanted to keep the debate laser focused on raising our polls and finding a vision for ourselves, rather than internal reforms, and I believe that my campaign helped to do that.
-----
Back in Stoke, and we had moved into the kitchen. I chatted briefly with pjr10th about his husband’s run for the leadership of the party he himself has served over many years,including at some point as Chairman.
pjr10th: Well as you know my husband used to be leader of the Welsh Tories (as did I) and leader of the Classical Liberals and when he told me he wanted to take the logical next step and run for leader, of course I was overjoyed and ready to support him through the process. I’m so proud of him for taking the chance, and, although it hasn’t worked out, he still ran in a leadership election, which is something I wouldn’t have the guts to do.
Turning to Willem, we continued our discussion about the leadership election where I asked him to pass comment on his fellow competitors.
W: Every candidate had something to bring to the table. Yukub for instance had the advantage of being a long time Tory with the support of every former leader still active in the party, but people did not necessarily know him within the party. A less familiar face for lots of people and that is something that I believe he’ll have to work on. Brexitglory was too inexperienced. A good person who might be my successor as Deputy Leader at some point, but at the moment the inexperience was a deal breaker for me and others. He’s also known for his more right wing takes and can be quite direct about that so that’s something that I think he has a disadvantage in. Rand is a good person with great ideas, but throws it all in and people can be overwhelmed by all of the ideas that he throws around. Merrily, in my opinion, wasn’t known enough, did not have the experience or a vision for the party.
T: It is fair to say you were seen as the favourite, until Yukub got into the race
W: Of course it would’ve been great to have some endorsements from former leaders and at first it threw me off. But it also made me work harder than before, being a leader that was endorsed by the newer people, who maybe were not as vocal about their ideas and working for them made me feel stronger.
T: What were your expectations heading into the results of the first round?
W: My expectations were not that high. It was hard to read what the result was going to be. I thought I might scrape through and get into the second round but definitely not by the same amount of votes as Yukub.
T: So what was it like when you got the news that you and Yukub had drawn on first preference voters?
W: It felt great and I had not expected it. It showed everyone that I was someone to be watched and that my position as frontrunner in the beginning was the right thing. It also shows the rest of the party in my opinion that the quieter people have a large voice if they are combined.
-----
I also spoke with both Yukub and Brexitglory about their reaction to the results of the first round, especially given the odds that Yukub was the by far favourite at this point.
Yukub: The real world has more nuance than the betting market and their seemingly arbitrary odds. I didn’t expect an overwhelming win or landslide or any candidate, including myself, so it’s near to what I expected, perhaps slightly closer than I had thought.
Brexitglory: Bitter sweet is quite accurate. I wanted to make it into the second round to continue my case, but towards the end of the campaigning it was clear I wasn’t going to make it. Nevertheless I was delighted with 8 votes. I started with no base, no long time friends and no leadership prestige, each of those 8 votes I worked hard for. I am proud and humbled to have won them over.
Less then a day after he was eliminated, Brexitglory endorsed Yukub for leader. I asked him about that decision.
BG: It wasn’t a quick decision. I had been thinking about it before running, during my run and after my run. Right now the Conservative party needs pragmatism and experience to guide us through a very difficult time. I believe that Yukub is the best person to do that. Willem would also have made a great leader, so it was a hard choice, but on reflection I think Yukub is best positioned to unite the party and drag us back up the polls where we belong.
-----
T: From the height of drawing with Yukub to 36 hours later when you had pulled out of the race. You’ll have heard the rumours around Westminster about so-called establishment influence and behaviour pushing you out of the race. This is your chance for you to honestly put your side of view across to correct the record. What happened between the first round results and the moment you pulled out to lead you to that decision?
W: It became clear that people within the party who supported Yukub did not see me as their leader and that they thought I am a liability to the party. These are things I can handle but yes at some point when the loudest voices start saying those things time and time again it gets harder to put it aside. Those feelings and the issues that they raised are for me the reason to step aside and let Yukub be the new leader. We need to be a united front as a party to fight back to the top in the polls and back where we were, and I didn’t feel like I was the person who could do that through the loud voices that did not trust me enough. I know that we can do this as a party and that we have to go further. It wasn’t my time and perhaps it will never be, but I will continue to fight for this party and to believe in the issues that are fighting for.
T: So between that first result and your decision, calls were growing louder against you? Where were they coming from, and did you feel they were fair criticisms?
W: They were mainly coming from people endorsing Yukub, as I thought they would come from, some of the issues had a bit of truth in it, but in my opinion were exaggerated. This was not just my opinion but also that of others within the party.
T: What do you mean by that?
W: Well for example the things that were said to me about me being First Minister in Wales had a hint of truth in there but in my opinion are not reasons to call someone a liability.
T: Since you brought it up, you obviously saw the comments about you being a liability in the press. What was your reaction to reading that in the mornings papers?
W: It was tough reading it, because I felt like we did the hard debates internally and that it was supposed to be that way and to see one of my party colleagues hitting me with that in the press after I just declared that I stepped down was something that hit me but it says more about that member than it says about me.
T: So, to clear up this matter once and for all. Did you feel forced out of the race?
W: I didn’t feel forced out just because of them, but did it have some influence in my decision? Yes it did. But I do really believe that we should unite for the future whether we are in Government or in Opposition and we now have the time to do this.
-----
When I spoke to Yukub by phone shortly before he became Conservative Party Leader, I put the rumours of the so-called “men in grey suits” coming to ask Willem to drop out of the race to him, and asked him to say why he thought Willem pulled out and his reaction to the “liability” comments in the press.
Yukub: These accusations of “men in grey suits” forcing Willem out seem to be wholly unsubstantiated and motivated by a desire to hurt the party. The “press briefing” you mentioned is, in fact, a leak from within the party, which is of course against our party rules. I fully support Willem remaining on in the capacity of Deputy Leader in my leadership team and cabinet. He’s a hard worker and I am sure he’ll continue to serve the party well.
-----
T: Something that is obvious in endorsements and has been picked up around Westminster is the apparent split between so-called ‘old guard’ endorsements and those who are former members of the defunct Classical Liberal Party. Do you ever feel like there is a split between these two wins of the party?
W: No I do not think there’s an actual split within the party, I do however think that we should listen more to each other. We come from different backgrounds and have different ideas on issues and we should think about that in discussion.
T: So what is next for you? You are still Deputy Leader. Are you looking forward to working under Yukub and do you see yourself in it for the long haul?
W: I will look forward to working with Yukub and we’ll build ourselves up from here and we will be back on top. I don’t see myself going for another run for Leader as it stands. I don’t know where my next ambitions are. I’ve done a lot of things already in politics. Being First Minister of Wales, one of the most beautiful parts of our country, Foreign Secretary for around six months. I need to figure out my next steps, but I will be on the frontlines in politics for the future and I will continue to fight for my beliefs.
T: Just finally. What’s your message to those of you who supported you in this leadership race?
W: I want to thank them from the bottom of my heart for supporting me through this and I know that it’s tough to see someone who you support going out of the race. I hope that they will back Yukub as leader but also that the rest of the party also recognises that they have to work to get them on board as well.
-----
For the final part of my conversation with Yukub, I asked him his thoughts on the suggestion the winning side of the election will need to work to win over Willem’s supporters.
Yukub: I think Willem and I both recognise the need for party unity, especially now. One might have noticed that Labour recently overtook us in the polls, for the first time in years. Only by uniting as one party can we make sure they’ll be dislodged from their position. If we stand strong and stand together, we will have regained the lead before Labour has had the chance to fully appreciate it. This will require the goodwill and ability to compromise on all sides, from the front benches to the backbenches. Together, we can reclaim our rightful position and restore the people’s confidence in our party and in our vision.
T: Final question, you have spoken about Labour overtaking your party in the polls, and with it very likely the Conservatives will be in opposition. Where does the party go from here?
Yukub: From what we’ve seen so far, both from information that has reached us about the composition and programme that a prospective Labour-led government, it seems like anything but a blueprint for the stability and prosperity that this country deserves and - quite rightly - demands. Yesterday the erstwhile ‘Prime Minister hopeful’, ARichTeaBiscuit, was quoted as - for all intents and purposes - begging the opposition not to present a Vote of No Confidence in a month’s time. Not only is this delightfully hypocritical, it is also a clear indication as to the substance such a government would be made of. Should such a government materialise, the Conservatives will be there, in opposition, to provide the much-needed scrutiny and hold them to account at every juncture - and seeing the nature of this proposed government, there will be plenty of such opportunities. From there we can, and will, rally, rebound and make our move.
-----
Getting in a taxi to the train station, it was obvious the words of unity were what Willem wanted me to take from this interview. The disappointment of losing the race was clear, and the passion for which he urged his supporters to get behind the party was sincere, but beneath the surface his comments sent another message. One that urges the eventual victor to unite the party, but not necessarily all on his own terms. The message that the victor needs to work hard to keep Willem’s supporters on board, combined with the urging of the losing candidate to unite behind Yukub will be one rebounding in CCHQ tonight, and will serve as a rallying cry to Willem’s voters to stay engaged, stay in the fight, and work hard to return the party to stable power.

WoR part 3 interludes readthrough

I9- Lift
I'm very curious and excited for this I must say! I know Lift is a novella character so I'm interested to meet him/her.
Ooh a heist!! Mistborn throwback haha.
Clearly wherever this place is, they have a very kind of curvy design. That would probably mess with my head haha.
A bronze palace eh! Makes a difference from a typical gold one I guess. Especially if there are lots of breasts haha. Seems like this will be another witty character maybe.
Ah if they're azish they must be in Azir. Looking back, it's been progressively built up in mentions throughout the book . What we know is their king was killed so the kingdom is in a bit of chaos rn.
Reshi isles has had a few mentions too. Clearly important stuff going on there. the flamespren, and then the visit from Rysn and Axies. Keep an eye on the situation there I guess!
Love how the guy Huquin just rappels as soon as lift points out about the breasts.
Nose like pinocchio as well by the sounds of it! Clearly these men are thieves looking to take advantage of a kingdom in distraction.
Yes I suppose it does rather make that sort of choking noise haha.
Yep, lift is definitely the wisecracking one haha.
So lift is actually 13! Funny that. Has she like decided not to call herself her true age or has she actually been 10 for years? Cus that's the kinda crazy shit brandon would pull haha. And in earth years it'd be more like 14 right? Also confirmation she is a girl!
Who is this mysterious man with silver buttons? Clearly been following Lift.
Really? What kind of people would want a bronze ground?!! Dont they like the softness of earth?!
Ah so lift is an edgedancer I'm assuming! Funny how she calls this spren a voidbringer. Where did she get that idea from? Is there any half truth to it I wonder. Iirc there were such things as voidspren according to Jasnah?
You know what, with the thieving crew and the young teen girl who'doesnt seem fully aware of the true nature of her powers,I am getting serious mistborn vibes here!
Wyndle. I like it. Why can't he, I'm assuming it's a he, stay still for too long? Is his bond with Lift not great enough to allow that? And why does he turn to crystal? Iirc this is the first other nahel bonded spren we've seen. We know they come from honor, cultivation and odium. I suspect Wyndle is a cultivationspren because honorspren are taken and wyndle doesn't seen evil. Although there are 10 orders and only 3 shards so idk what the rest of the bonded spren are and where they come from? Like how were they created if not by shards? We have cryptic spren and the spren from Ym who could heal that we don't know of.
Random side note, but I just realized that again, the wider arc of the stormlight archives hasn't been put forward. We haven't even met Odium in person yet! However it feels like a lot of progress has been made. But when you think about it, book one consisted of Kal and Shallan realising their powers, and the big climax was meeting Eshonai. So far book two has taken 500 odd pages to get all the main characters to meet, and we've learnt a lot more about the world and of spren but we still dont really know what's going on in the bigger picture! Its amazing Sanderson's ability to move plots forward at a relatively slow place, yet still provide many answers to mysteries and have satisfying mini climaxes. It's like we've had lots of mini arcs and mysteries inching the plot forward to tantalise us, but I get the sense that by the end of this book we're gonna be plunged head first into the bigger picture of what is going on, cosmere wide really.
Man, I knew one prime whatever was killed, but two?! Taravangian is really stepping up here isnt he. What's he got to do with the ghostbloods and what are his true aims? We got a tantalising glimpse of it at the end of WoK and no more since. Some crap about death rattles and saving them. I wanna get more.
Thought like a true radiant Lift! Killing isn't ususally a radiant thing unless necessary!
Funny how honest Wyndle is. Weird that they have stayed bonded if they're so sort of antagonistic to each other! But the buddy comedy rhetoric is quite funny.
The ring? What is that?! An council of Spren or something? There is a reference to they, so clearly it's a group of spren making decisions. And the old magic? Haven't had a reference to that in a while! Stop teasing us Sandersonnnnnnnnn!! Who is their mother? Cultivation? In the same way Honor is like the honorspren father? This is assuming Wyndle is a cultivationspren of course.
Jeez Lift. You treat Wyndle like shit!
Haha. I find it funny how convinced Lift is that shes in charge. Its kinda like a petulant child vibe going on. If she only listened to Wyndle I'm sure she would be even more powerful!
Is this the surge of adhesion shared here? She seems to be sticking to the wall. Well Wyndle is and shes holding on😂😂 so maybe not!
This mysterious man in black. Who is he?!!
We need to voidbring this 😂😂😂 how naive she is.
Ah awesome! Exposition time woop woop😂😂. So I was wrong haha. Two surges are friction which is cool but at the same time sorta similar to adhesion. At least in the way it's been used already. Perhaps there are different ways to use it that separate it more from adhesion. Growth I assume means shes gonna grow these seeds. How growing plants helps them break in i have no fucking clue😂 a little reference to regrowth here or healing before Wyndle was cut off. Ym was a healer. An edgedancer perhaps?
Summoned her awesomeness!!! I LOVE it.
Again clear confirmation the bond grants growing sentience to all nahel bonded spren. I wonder if it's the same with the listeners?
Ah I see how this surge could be useuful now haha. And i guess you could use it to grow tall vines to climb up. But I guess you could just use Wyndle and friction for that anyway. I'm excited to see further uses of it anyway. It's all very naturey. Seems cultivation might be a very kind of natural shard as well as good at telling the future. this is all we know so far!
'She wasn't quite so awesome when hungry'. Are her powers somehow related to food as well?
Hahah she doesn't even realise what the immortal words are! I'd love to find out what made her say them!
Hopefully she has a lot of spheres if shes gonna be using her stormlight a lot!
Oh my god it's that fucking knobhead who killed Ym. He has the same fucking scar and all. Why is he after a kid who's done nothing wrong?
You know what I just realized. I've been thinking about the differences between spren we know of and what it might mean. Lift can touch Wyndle. Kaladin and Shallan cant physically interact with theirs. Odd.
Huquin clearly knows a little more than the others but is still curious cus hes checking out her vines. I suspect he may turn and confront Lift later.
Well, he is a sensible thief indeed!
Although his nephew here seems pretty damn gullible haha.
A city of shadows huh. Wonder what all that's about. Is it full of people with weird shadows like Jasnah haha.
Well clearly this dude is pretty damn naive. Gonna a grate on Lift I bet.
Man, Lift is just always thinking about food huh.
Hmm. Sounds like its sorta like having a prime minister or president compared to a king but still not quite democratic haha. I suppose it is probably better than the way of the Alethi.
Gawx. I dont like that name.
Haha. I love how shes revealing a massive secret there but he would never even know because he'll just take it as Lift being odd and arrogant.
I'm assuming the sliding is another use of friction. Making it kinda like ice skippy but I guess Lift would be more controlled. Can use it for speed. Pretty handy eh.
So using her radiant powers too much could leave her starved? But stormlight is in gems not food? Is this why shes so obsessed with food haha? Is she somehow getting stormlight from food? Someone needs to tell her about the gems haha. How does that even work?!
Lol Gawx just really isnt cut out for this work is he. Hes a bit of a clumsy kid haha.
Well at least Lift isnt under any false assumptions Haha. Shes fully aware of the loyalty of thieves.
Ooh ok, where has she been then? We know shes been to marabeithia cus that guy who killed Ym followed her from there. Where this city of shadows is located I have no clue. She clearly has more of a past to explore. Glad shes gonna be getting a book to herself. Albeit in about 7 or 8 years time haha.
Yeah. This had me surprised too Lift! The kid might not be street smart, but he has spunk!
Yeah this.whole food thing I NEED to learn lots more about.
Too narrow for what? And how can Wyndle sense the vibrations on the floor?
Love how honest Lift is to Gawx haha. He's like the mild mannered one and Lift is the epic super awesome one from a buddy comedy haha.
Oof. What will be the dangerous part?! Lift seems experienced at blending in. I wonder how many of these she has done.
Wtf is wrong with these people? It's like the fucking Truman show. Who would sign up for this shit. Do they even have any political power?
Sounds kinda like the Dalai Lama selection a bit tbh. Like they believe hes always reincarnated aka always there and yet someone is still chosen.
Hang on, hang on, so they believe the new prime is with them. Yet the person they decide might not even be in the room. What?! How does that make any sort of sense!! These Azish people. Sigzil has got a new dimension haha.
Well that's Gawx a goner probably. Was fun whilst it lasted.
Lift is a good kid. She has heart. Kinda a Robin hood morality going on here too.
Prune him😂😂
Hey, Wyndle! Lift may be annoying to you and a abrasive at times, but I can see her heart is on the right place. Also they cant have been bonded long, only months. Interesting to know. We are nearly at the beginning of her radiant journey!
Ooh. I love this use of Wyndle's power.
Hmm. What an interesting explanation. So Wyndle's consciousness is in the physical which is why he is able to interact somewhat with the things of the world. And the consciousness is what the people bond with, so the more they bond, the more they become able to be in the physical realm? Is this true of other spren too? And the spren that cannot hide, Is that referring to bonded spren or is that naturally occurring ones like flamespren?
Seems like Lift is a special kind of radiant. Maybe edgedanders are like that? But then surely Wyndle would know this. Is Lift a special radiant then?
Ask for when she visited his mother? From deductions passed on past knowledge, Wyndle's mother is cultivation and the night watcher can grant you something you wish for. Are cultivation and the night watcher the same thing? Or is it like a storm fathehonor situation? Looking back at the reference to old magic earlier, its said his mother aka cultivation, has blessed her. So, the nightwatcher is the old magic according to the reference earlier, and Lift definitely visited the nightwatcher then. So the two are very clearly linked. I wonder what Lift's curse is?
Also, thinking about it logically, if Wyndle cannot be touched because he is mostly in the cognitive realm, was Lift granted the ability to be more in the cognitive realm than normal humans and that's why she can touch him? How do other edgedanders get about without touching their spren? And why would Lift wanna be in the cognitive? I suppose she probably doesn't remember!
Why is Wyndle christalline? Is it ever explained?
Oh Gawx. Why did you do this to yourself?!
Haha funny cus I made a comparison to ice earlier! So she could escape the clutches of guards because they would get no grip on her! That's really cool.
Aha I was right! So being partly in the cognitive gives her the ability to touch Wyndle and get stormlight from food. Can she get stormlight from gems too? I assume it's the same.
Yeah why did cultivation or the nightwatcher give it to Lift? She seems very special so I get the idea that maybe she'll be key to the end of the SA considering shes a main character in the back half.
Haha. These guys fawning over each other is hillarious. Trying to prove they're the most humble haha.
If Emuli have primes too, I wonder how linked they're to their neighbours.
Cultivation has given up on humans?! That's mad. Who is He?
I'm assuming Yaezir is their god. Is it their version of the almighty?
Lol. I love the idea of Lift just sliding about and then sneaking food away sheepishly.
There's Shalash's handiwork again!
Aww she'd go back for Gawx. How lovely.
Oh no. Not him again. What does dead eyes refer to? I only question because their curses all seem to come from some part of history.
Oh my. What is this stormlight sucking creature?!
Funny how darkness doesn't know how utterly irrelevant the gems are to her because she gets it from food.
There goes another mention of Rall Elorim in a negative sense. What went on there?
Well Wyndle seems to be having a bit of a meltdown there 😂
Of course the roll fucking rolled away. Aaaaah I can just imagine the tension being drawn out in a tv show.
Does this man have something against radiants? He seems to know a lot about their powers.
Execution?! Booooo. Although some of the suspense is lost by knowing about the novella and the upcoming book featuring Lift as a flashback.
Yeah there is something wrong with thay man Wyndle, he's batshit insane!!
Come on Lift. A little more!!
Haha yes vizier! He probably doesn't know how important that could be to the future of Roshar if Lift is so important!
Good the darkness thinks hes so clever yet doesn't know everything about Lift!
Aww Gawx. Lift will save you somehow I'm sure of it! And yes Wyndle, it really was uncalled for!!
Why is Lift so oblivious to the stormlight in gems? Is it part of her curse perhaps? We don't even know what her boon was. Was she cursed to not be able to take stomrlight in via gems?
Ooh here we go. Something is happening. The food is becoming stormlight!!!!
Here we go. Epicness to the max!!
Haha just doing an awesome slide and then grabbing a sausage. Brilliant!
So Wyndle was a gardener huh. I guess this explains the whole crystal thing. Is that what human minds look like in shadesmar?
So we now know this darkness is a radiant shardbearer. And his other servants have shardblades. Are they radiants too? Does he want to be the only radiant alive, is that why he kills them?
Built to kill voidbringers aka spren. I don't believe that is true. But I'll keep it in mind. Why would you need shardblades to kill soren?
Aww she's got a heart when she needs to!
Fuck. Sanderson bloody did it. The bastard. This is very dark for Sanderson. Damn. This is why it hits so much, cus I never expected it. Fuck that's brutal.
Jeez this radiant has a hard on for justice. A wind runner then? But why kill other radiants?!
Wow. Seems everyone is broken that Sanderson uses as a radiant haha. I wonder what death shes seen. Is it in the city of shadows?
This has definitely hit Lift pretty hard and she seems to wear her heart on her sleeve. You can see why shes a radiant.
Ah a proper explanation of regrowth. She does listen after all haha. Incredible that it could be used to heal such a wound. I bet you shes gonna try anyway. Cus that's what a true radiant would do. Go back for Gawx.whatever happened to the other thieves anyway?!
Yep, how could I tell that haha. Shes a radiant. Of course she went bloody back. Knowing it could probably lead to her capture as well. Brave. A true radiant move.
The 2nd ideal. Wow. Powerful. I like it. And it saved Gawx so I'm extra happy!
Huh. Why is darkness stopping all of a sudden? Didn't he realise she was an edgedancer already or did he just get the radiant memo haha. Speaking of, how does he know who to look for?
Clearly this dude hates the knights radiant now and believes they will return the desolations. whatever gave him that idea?!
Oh wow. That was, uh, unexpected. Pretty cool though huh. Thief becomes their king, it's like out of a fairy tale haha.
So clearly the kadasixes are the names for the heralds. What does this dude know so much about them. Does he work for them? They've all gone sorta nutso in case you didnt get the memo bro. The ones who've returned anyway.
Funny how they assume it was Gawx who performed regrowth. If or when Szeth comes to kill him, he won't be safe again. I wonder how far the news will spread as well. Clearly the Alethi have been mildly aware of the goings on in Azir. Is this gonna be the first they hear of actual radiant powers returning?
Hmm. Jezrien is the herald of kings. Is thay the same as Yaezir? And is the drooling comment a reference to madness? We haven't come across him yet I don't believe but i suspect he is running amok in the world.
Oh Lift. Always wanting to eat haha. Though it very much makes sense!
Well, what a ride that was! I look forward to figuring out more in edgedancer and as Lift returns in later books.
I10- Szeth
Oof. Last we saw of this bad boy he was in shock from discovering Kaladin could have powers like him. Must have hit him hard cus warning of the radiants return is why he's trapped like this. Makes me wonder if they're all right. We see the books from the radiants perspectives. What if they do turn out to be harmful in the end?...
Anyway let's catch up on our favourite white assassin!
The tallest tower in the world eh. Good vantage point I guess. Only holy place? Surely youd think its be the other way around haha. Holy ground is unworkable. Weird lot the shin are and I'm eager for more info.
Szeth seems to play the victim a lot, and yes he was deceived. However thay doesn't absolve him of any responsibility for all the murder and death and destruction he has spread.
Hes going, uh, kinda emo here. I hate everyone and I I wanna die!
Who is the God of Gods?
No way. Hes at urithiru? So it is real! Storms above that's amazing. So urithith is a tower? So how can it be in all locations at once? A moveable tower? How does Szeth know where it is and do the stone shamans know as well? I hope Shallan makes it here too soon. She's put all that effort into research.
Why is the eastern edge flat I wonder? Design or high storm damage?
Clearly hes raging at this God of Gods. Everything he thought is crumbling down..he was right and hes now killed people out of the belief it was deserved for him, when he was right. Did the stone shamans know? Did they get rid of him to shut him up, unknowingly setting world shattering events into motion?! So many questions haha.
Where's he going? Back home to confront the shamans? Doesn't he still have to kill Dalinar?!
I11-
Ah here we are! I always enjoy these Eshonai viewpoints. They provide a lot of intriguing info..I wonder if we will see Shen/Rlain in this one?
Wow. Eshonai really has changed. I hope Venli is pleased with what she's done! Brought the old gods attention back to them. Whatever they are.
These new rhythms speak to her? Are these the things controlling the new Eshonai?
Eshonai's true form still screaming out inside to remind us of whats really happening here. It's crazy that this form is so powerful it overpowers Eshonai'a own will.
Oh my, this really is serious huh. Thousands of spren and already a few hundred changed. This isnt gonna go well.
Seems Eshonai has a lot of spren zipping around her atm. Why's that? I can only hope the windspren go tell Syl what is going on.
Lying and so utterly dismissive. I can definitely see why they never went into stormform since they escaped the clutches of their old Gods!
If Eshonai can summon an highstorm and she needs storms to transform more, why hasn't she? I suspect the climax might be the listeners in stormform summoning a highstorm and that would be the everstorm!
A connection to the world not felt before. What could that mean?
Red eyes, just like the spren Syl sees and the red lightning.
Yes Davim! Stand up for what is right. You know this is wrong and something is manipulating them. This is why dullform are the best. Shen/Rlain was a cool dude. I hope we meet him again. He seemed so sincere.
How come Venli isn't affected by the stormform? Like she seems fine and fully aware of herself and in control. Did she secretly put something in place to protect her? Was Eshonai just her puppet to be used to get rid of the biggest dissenter?
Venli is a massive schemer. She knows a fuck of a lot more then she let on. What shady shit is she involved in?
Well at least we know we got 2 more storms and then boom time!
Wow. Going straight to the people and spreading false propaganda. Using certain words to influence people's decision. Almost sounds like the conservative media in america 😂
Yup. The five sure as hell ain't happy about that.
Hmm. Why do I get the sense that when she says she will not force people, she lies.
So she is aware that the eyes of the Gods are upon her. Almost seems like she has some secret resistance plan up her sleeve.
Funny how shes unaware of why she didnt choose her OG crew. Is this her subconsciously fighting back?
Aww. I feel like Thude is gonna get killed for not transforming. That'd be very sad.
Well at least some part of Eshonai is still sensible. Yet eventually they will kill them all. This is the worst possible outcome of the Eshonai story. Its gonna bring forth the desolation.
This feels uncomfortably like the Nazis rounding up their enemies. Gives me literal chills.
I need to learn more of these Red Eyes and what they are linked to. All these hints about the old Gods, but who are they?!
Oh my. Her poor mother. That's so cruel.
Eshonai is now a monster. Doing that to Thule is a betrayal of all she was before. Venli is worse, for bringing all this about. Why Venli, why?
Oh no, not a return of the Gods!
Yessss! Run for your lives and warn the Alethi!
A storm in two days huh. I suspect a lot is gonna do down then. I cannot wait!
She wanted this. The clever fucking bastard wanted this! That's why she put Thule in charge instead of ordering the guards to take him away. Inside she is still dissenting. Yes rhythm of peace! Stay in control! Also the rhythm of war title makes a lot more sense now!
Onwards to part four. I am ready to face the Sanderlanche when it comes!!

The 2020 US Elections markets are in flux across various sports betting shops, showing the first signs of significant movement in months. Tide Turning in favor of Democrats? Up to a few days ago A project of Victoria University of Wellington, PredictIt has been established to facilitate research into the way markets forecast events. In order to enable researchers to take advantage of the opportunities presented by prediction markets, we make our data available to the academic community at no cost. The implied betting odds from Betfair are 53% for Biden, 40% for Trump, 2% for Mike Pence, 2% for Hillary Clinton Don’t forget, if you want a baseline, it’s that more people have voted for Democrats than Republicans in most of the past several national elections. To make a prediction of close to 50/50, you have to be really influenced Winning those five would give Democrats control of the Senate and land the 2.62 odds available with Betway on Republicans getting less than 50. I like that bet because there are alternative Betting Odds - Democratic Presidential Nomination. RCP Betting Average-----
