Everstorm

From The Coppermind
Jump to: navigation, search

The Everstorm is a weather pattern on Roshar similar to a highstorm. The storm travels from west to east, opposite the direction of traditional highstorms. It appears to be referenced as being the same thing as the True Desolation by Honor in Dalinar's visions, but it is possible the Everstorm is only a part of the True Desolation. It has not been summoned in previous Desolations.

The Everstorm was summoned by Stormform listeners during the Battle of Narak at the end of the War of Reckoning. Where regular highstorms are products of the Stormfather, a splinter of Honor, the Everstorm is not of Honor. It is presumably of Odium. It attracts stormspren and has the unique physical feature of red lightning. It also has the side effect of transforming any Parshman who come in contact with it into a Voidbringer. This has obvious and terrible consequences for the other inhabitants of Roshar. Because of the Everstorm's backwards path and unexpected summoning, Rosharans will be nearly defenseless against its destruction, as both stormwardens and physical barriers will be useless against it. It is noted that it will round Roshar less frequently than a high storm.[1]
