Baon is also a worldhopper and appears in The Way of Kings.
Gotcha. I knew about Khriss. I need to go read up on the planet and shard influence. Not sure I saw much there or understood what was happening with it.

Baon is
Spoiler:
in the "Ishikk" interlude in the Way of Kings, and is one of the three men searching for Hoid. Ishikk calls him "Blunt."


The planet is Taldain, and the Shard residing there is Autonomy, aka Bavadin.

I think White Sand is first in the timeline, so you probably won't see any impacts from other settings. Khriss gripes in her commentary on Taldain in Arcanum Unbounded that it is difficult to visit.

Pumped for it!

After finished Stormlight 1-3, I read Elantris to pass the time. Fantastic little story. Now going to (hopefully) fit in the Mistborn trilogy before Stormlight 4.

Someone on Reddit already figured out that Sanderson is probably going for a palindrome with the initials of the titles for the first arc of the series.

I don't reddit, but that makes perfect sense.

Any hypothesis on the book title then?
King of W... T...
Knights of W... T...
?
I'm having a hard time coming up with something.
