UPDATE: GIVEAWAY CLOSED. WINNERS HAVE BEEN DRAWN for both portions. Congratulations u/gooberpsycho for winning the Reddit portion! I will be reaching out to you shortly.
Hey keebers, It's me again. To celebrate my bday, I wanted to give back to the community since it's been a little over year since I joined the hobby and I've met a lot of good folks along the way so I'm paying it forward. Giveaways will be split into 2 portions, and are open to everyone, but international winners outside the US will pay their own shipping. US winners will have their shipping covered by me. REDDIT PORTION: Up for grabs here is my 1st keeb, an Aluminum Tada68 with Cherry blues soldered on an alu plate. I'm including a brand new alu plate that fits the case I bought last Oct from KBD Fans, but never got around to switching out! Winner just needs their own keycap set. I'm hoping this goes to someone new to the hobby that wants to try something other than a gaming mechanical keyboard :) Winner will be picked via Reddit Raffler and announced Monday, Jan 18 PST. DISCORD PORTION: Winners will be picked via K-2SO (Giveaway Bot) by end of today, Sunday, Jan 17 PST. Please note that you're only eligible to win 1 of the giveaways there. If you happen to win more than 1, you'll be given the choice of which prize you want to claim, and the prize(s) you /ff will be rerolled. Notes:
~~Oki see y'all when I wakeup, it's been a long, fun day, but I'm glad I'm lucky enough to be able to do thi... keep reading on reddit ➡
Just a random bit of theory I had pop into my head today, that while mostly speculation would fit nicely into what we know so far about Threnody and The Evil.
From the description of the Threnody system in Arcanum Unbound, we know that Ambition and Odium fought all through the system across all 3 realms, but never actually manifested on the planet. Much of their combat took place in the physical realm in the space between worlds. Odium did not kill Ambition there, but he did rip off a large chunk of his investiture, enough to mortally wound him.
From what we have seen in other parts of the cosmere, there are three ways that investiture manifests. It either bonds to and invests a physical being, coalesces into a cognitive entity, or solidifies into a god metal. As the battle "took place in the vast space between worlds" the first two seem much less likely.
I think that whatever ripped off chunks of Ambition were left after the battle were in the form of his god metal. Possibly also some of Odium's as well, or even an alloy of the two. A highly invested god metal meteor would certainly be enough not only to cause the kind of damage seen on the physical world of Threnody, but also to damage the cognitive world and block the flow of souls to the beyond as well.
Until we see more it is really just a theory but it kind of fits what we know and introduces a maguffin of epic proportions if there is a giant god metal meteor in a crater in the middle of the lost continent.
