Old friend, I hope this missive finds you well. Though, as you are now essentially immortal, I would guess that wellness on your part is something of a given. Adolin Dalinar, Adolin, and Elhokar go on a hunt for a chasmfiend. Wit is introduced.
Thirteen Ten Heartbeats Dalinar Jezrien
Protecting/Leading
Shalash
Brave/Obedient
I realize that you are probably still angry. That is pleasant to know. Much as your perpetual health, I have come to rely upon your dissatisfaction with me. It is one of the cosmere’s great constants, I should think. Dalinar Dalinar saves the king from the chasmfiend.

Seventeen A Bloody, Red Sunset Kaladin Vedeledev
Loving/Healing
Talenel
Dependable/Resourceful
Might I be quite frank? Before, you asked why I was so concerned. It is for the following reason: Kaladin Kaladin starts to medically treat the Bridgemen.
Eighteen Highprince of War Dalinar Battar
Wise/Careful
Battar
Wise/Careful
Ati was once a kind and generous man, and you saw what became of him. Rayse, on the other hand, was among the most loathsome, crafty, and dangerous individuals I had ever met. Adolin/Dalinar, Adolin, Dalinar Dalinar suggests uniting the Highprinces under a Highprince of War. Not his normal Herald.
Nineteen Starfalls Dalinar Vedeledev
Loving/Healing
Jezrien
Protecting/Leading
He holds the most frightening and terrible of all of the Shards. Ponder on that for a time, you old reptile, and tell me if your insistence on nonintervention holds firm. Because I assure you, Rayse will not be similarly inhibited. Dalinar Dalinar's first vision (related to readers). Encounters the ancient Radiants and Midnight Essence. Dalinar is healed by one of the Radiants which seems to supersede his protecting of his "family".

Kalak
Resolute/Builder

Twenty-Three Many Uses Kaladin Ishar
Pious/Guiding
Vedeledev
Loving/Healing

Twenty-six Stillness Dalinar Jezrien
Protecting/Leading
Talenel
Dependable/Resourceful
I am being chased. Your friends of the Seventeenth Shard, I suspect. I believe they’re still lost, following a false trail I left for them. They’ll be happier that way. I doubt they have any inkling what to do with me should they actually catch me. Dalinar Dalinar and Sadeas argue. Dalinar experiences revulsion in battle. Adolin captures a gemheart.
Twenty-seven Chasm Duty Kaladin Vedeledev
Loving/Healing
Talenel
Dependable/Resourceful
If anything I have said makes a glimmer of sense to you, I trust that you’ll call them off. Or maybe you could astound me and ask them to do something productive for once. Kaladin Kaladin unites the men with his spear and Rock's soup.
Twenty-eight Decision Dalinar Palah?
Learned/Giving
Jezrien
Protecting/Leading
For I have never been dedicated to a more important purpose, and the very pillars of the sky will shake with the results of our war here. I ask again. Support me.

Twenty-nine Errorgance Shallan Shalash
Creative/Honest
Palah?
Learned/Giving
“The ones of ash and fire, who killed like a swarm, relentless before the Heralds.” –Noted in Masly, page 337. Corroborated by Coldwin and Hasavah. Shallan Shallan reports her progress and has further discussions w/ Jasnah on recent history.
Thirty Darkness Unseen Kaladin Vedeledev
Loving/Healing
Talenel
Dependable/Resourceful
“They were suddenly dangerous. Like a calm day that became a tempest.” –This fragment is the origin of a Thaylen proverb that was eventually reworked into a more common derivation. I believe it may reference the Voidbringers. See Ixsix’s Emperor, fourth chapter. Kaladin/Gaz, Kaladin, Gaz Bridge Four practices the side carry. Some background from Gaz.
Thirty-One Beneath the Skin Kaladin Shalash
Brave/Obedient
Vedeledev
Loving/Healing
No quote Kaladin 6 years ago Kaladin's father holds off the townspeople, who have come to rob him.
Thirty-Two Side Carry Kaladin Nalan
Just/Confident
Talenel
Dependable/Resourceful
“They lived high atop a place no man could reach, but all could visit. The tower city itself, crafted by the hands of no man.” –Though “The Song of the Last Summer” is a fanciful tale of romance from the third century after the Recreance, it is likely a valid reference in this case. See page 27 of Varala’s translation, and note the undertext. Kaladin Kaladin pulls off the side carry, resulting in ruinous losses.
Thirty-Three Cymatics Shallan Ishar
Pious/Guiding
Palah?
Learned/Giving
“They changed, even as we fought them. Like shadows they were, that can transform as the flame dances. Never underestimate them because of what you first see.” –Purports to be a scrap collected from Talatin, a Radiant of the Order of Stonewards. The source–Guvlow’s Incarnate–is generally held as reliable, though this is from a copied fragment of “The Poem of the Seventh Morning,” which has been lost. Shallan Shallan learns from Kabsal that the shapes of cities mirror sound waves. For Kabsal
Thirty-Four Stormwall Kaladin Jezrien
Protecting/Leading
Nalan
Just/Confident
“I walked from Abamabar to Urithiru.” –This quote from the Eighth Parable of The Way of Kings seems to contradict Varala and Sinbian, who both claim the city was inaccessible by foot. Perhaps there was a way constructed, or perhaps Nohadon was being metaphorical. Kaladin Kaladin is sentenced to be hung out in the highstorm.
Thirty-Five A Light by Which to See Kaladin Jezrien
Protecting/Leading
Jezrien
Protecting/Leading
“Though many wished Urithiru to be built in Alethela, it was obvious that it could not be. And so it was that we asked for it to be placed westward, in the place nearest to Honor.” –Perhaps the oldest surviving original source mentioning the city, requoted in The Vavibrar, line 1804. What I wouldn’t give for a way to translate the Dawnchant. Kaladin/Teft Kaladin survives the storm. Jezrien is the Stormfather whom Kaladin sees.
Thirty-six The Lesson Shallan Nalan
Just/Confident
Shalash
Creative/Honest
“Taking the Dawnshard, known to bind any creature voidish or mortal, he crawled up the steps crafted for Heralds, ten strides tall apiece, toward the grand temple above.” –From The Poem of Ista. I have found no modern explanation of what these “Dawnshards” are. They seem ignored by scholars, though talk of them was obviously prevalent among those recording the early mythologies. Shallan Jasnah kills thieves as a lesson to Shallan. Shallan steals her soulcaster, partly in retribution.
Thirty-seven Sides Kaladin Palah?
Learned/Giving
Vedeledev
Loving/Healing
No quote Kaladin 5 ½ years ago Kaladin and Lirin meet Roshone over dinner.
Thirty-eight Envisager Kaladin Jezrien
Protecting/Leading
Vedeledev
Loving/Healing
“Born from the darkness, they bear its taint still, marked upon their bodies much as the fire marks their souls.” –I consider Gashash-son-Navammis a trustworthy source, though I’m not certain about this translation. Find the original quote in the fourteenth book of Seld and retranslate it myself, perhaps? Kaladin/Teft Teft heals Kaladin with spheres, revealing he (Teft) has hidden knowledge.
Thirty-nine Burned into Her Shallan Nalan
Just/Confident
Shalash
Creative/Honest
“Within a heartbeat, Alezarv was there, crossing a distance that would have taken longer than four months’ travel by foot.” –Another folktale, this one recorded in Among the Darkeyed, by Calinam. Page 102. Stories of instantaneous travel and the Oathgates pervade these tales. Shallan Shallan reports her success, and tries to soulcast.
Forty Eyes of Red and Blue Kaladin Kalak
Resolute/Builder
Talenel
Dependable/Resourceful
“Death upon the lips. Sound upon the air. Char upon the skin.” –From “The Last Desolation” by Ambrian, line 335. Kaladin Kaladin returns to Bridge Four.
Forty-One Of Alds and Milp Kaladin Nalan
Just/Confident

Loving/Healing
No quote Kaladin 5 ½ years ago Lirin saves Roshone (instead of opportunistically killing him), loses Rillir Justice prevails
Forty-Two Beggars and Barmaids Shallan Palah?
Learned/Giving
Ishar
Pious/Guiding
“Like a highstorm, regular in their coming, yet always unexpected.” –The word Desolation is used twice in reference to their appearances. See pages 57, 59, and 64 of Tales by Hearthlight. Shallan Shallan meets w/ Kabsal again. Readies herself to leave in a week
Forty-Three The Wretch Kaladin Talenel
Dependable/Resourceful
Talenel
Dependable/Resourceful
“They lived out in the wilds, always awaiting the Desolation–or sometimes, a foolish child who took no heed for the night’s darkness.” –A child’s tale, yes, but this quote from Shadows Remembered seems to hint at the truth I seek. See page 82, the fourth tale. Kaladin Nothing changes for Bridge Four, they are on permanent chasm duty.
Forty-Four The Weeping Kaladin Talenel
Dependable/Resourceful
Vedeledev
Loving/Healing
No quote Kaladin 5 years ago Roshone's revenge, drafting Tien into the army. Kaladin joins with Tien to protect him.
Forty-Five Shadesmar Shallan Shalash
Creative/Honest
Palah?
Learned/Giving
“Yelig-nar, called Blightwind, was one that could speak like a man, though often his voice was accompanied by the wails of those he consumed.” –The Unmade were obviously fabrications of folklore. Curiously, most were not considered individuals, but instead personifications of kinds of destruction. This quote is from Traxil, line 33, considered a primary source, though I doubt its authenticity. Shallan Shallan soulcasts accidentally, runs from the figureheads, and finds herself in Shadesmar.
Forty-six Child of Tanavast Kaladin Shalash
Brave/Obedient
Jezrien
Protecting/Leading
“Though I was due for dinner in Veden City that night, I insisted upon visiting Kholinar to speak with Tivbet. The tariffs through Urithiru were growing quite unreasonable. By then, the so-called Radiants had already begun to show their true nature.” –Following the firing of the original Palanaeum, only one page of Terxim’s autobiography remained, and this is the only line of any use to me. Kaladin Kaladin dreams he is the storm. Repeats his distrust of lighteyes, even when his men disagree.
Forty-seven Stormblessings Kaladin Nalan
Just/Confident
Talenel
Dependable/Resourceful
No quote Kaladin 1 year ago Kaladin kills a shardbearer to save Amaram's life. His squad is decimated. Kaladin refuses a shardblade.
Forty-eight Strawberry Shallan Ishar
Pious/Guiding
Ishar
Pious/Guiding
“They take away the light, wherever they lurk. Skin that is burned.” –Cormshen, page 104. Shallan Shallan is poisoned. Reveals her theft. Because of Kabsal?? Surely this chapter has a lot more than his involvement...
Forty-nine To Care Kaladin Kalak
Resolute/Builder
Talenel
Dependable/Resourceful
“Radiant / of birthplace / the announcer comes / to come announce / the birthplace of Radiants.” –Though I am not overly fond of the ketek poetic form as a means of conveying information, this one by Allahn is often quoted in reference to Urithiru. I believe some mistook the home of the Radiants for their birthplace as well. Kaladin Kaladin comes up with a desperate plan and trains Bridge Four to fight with a spear.
Fifty Backbreaker Powder Shallan Vedeledev
Loving/Healing
Vedeledev
Loving/Healing
“Flame and char. Skin so terrible. Eyes like pits of blackness.” –A quote from the Iviad probably needs no reference notation, but this comes from line 482, should I need to locate it quickly. Shallan Shallan recovers, Jasnah spurns her. Reveals that Kabsal is the poisoner.
Fifty-One Sas Nahn Kaladin Nalan
