The Eila Stele is the oldest known text on Roshar, written in Dawnchant.[1] It contains several key pieces of information about the planet's history.

History

The Eila Stele is believed by historians to be the oldest extant document on Roshar. It is in the form of a carving, presumably on a stone stele. It was first thought to predate the first Desolations, and possibly be written by the Heralds.[1] Dawnchant became a dead language over time,[2] and the meaning of the Eila Stele was lost. However, Navani Kholin realized that fragments of the Dawnchant could be recovered from Dalinar's visions.[3] This resulted in a spate of translation breakthroughs by Navani and ardents at the Palanaeum[4] and the Jokasha Monastery.[5] Jasnah and the Veristitalians also took an interest,[6] as did Taravangian and the Diagram.[7]

Through the efforts of these groups, the Dawnchant was eventually cracked, allowing the Eila Stele to be translated.[1]

Contents and Revelations

After the Eila Stele was translated, it was revealed that the author was not a Herald but a Dawnsinger.[1] Dawnsingers were ancient ancestors of the singers native to Roshar; they were not spren, as theorized by the Vorin church.[1] The text further revealed that the first people known as Voidbringers were actually humans, who were not native to Roshar.[1] This contradicted Vorin doctrine regarding the Expulsion, which held that mankind fought against the Voidbringers to reclaim the Tranquiline Halls.[8]

The Eila Stele indicated that humans destroyed their own world.[9] Most of the humans fled to Roshar and were taken in out of pity by the Dawnsingers and their gods.[9][10] The humans were given land known as current-day Shinovar, explaining that region's unique flora and fauna.[11] They later used their Surgebinding powers to conquer most of Roshar.[11]

Cosmere Significance

The Eila Stele was the key to the refounded Knights Radiant learning of the abandonment of the planet Ashyn.[12] Ashyn neighbors Roshar in its solar system,[13] and it was almost destroyed through mankind's use of the Dawnshards and Surgebinding.[11][14][15] The Heralds were among the humans who abandoned Ashyn.[16] The Stormfather tells Dalinar that during the False Desolation, the original Knights Radiant learned of Ashyn's fate, leading them to question the use of Surgebinding powers.[11] They were urged on by Honor, but after Aharietiam, Honor was dying and no longer cogent, which led to the events of the Day of Recreance.[11]

The information in the stele directly refutes several aspects of Vorin doctrine regarding the history of humanity.[17][18] Further interaction with the Heralds and Fused have led both humans and singers to gain a better understanding of the Rosharan system and the relationship between Roshar, Ashyn, and Braize.[19][18][20] Some Rosharans have had to reexamine their belief system in light of this information, as Vorin concepts such as the the Expulsion, Voidbringers, Damnation, and the Tranquiline Halls have proven to be incorrect or only loosely based in fact.[18][20]

Known text

They came from another world, using powers that we have been forbidden to touch. Dangerous powers, of spren and Surges. They destroyed their lands and have come to us begging. We took them in, as commanded by the gods. What else could we do? They were a people forlorn, without a home. Our pity destroyed us. For their betrayal extended even to our gods: to spren, stone, and wind. Beware the otherworlders. The traitors. Those with tongues of sweetness, but with minds that lust for blood. Do not take them in. Do not give them succor. Well were they named Voidbringers, for they brought the void. The empty pit that sucks in emotion. A new god. Their god. These Voidbringers know no songs. They cannot hear Roshar, and where they go, they bring silence. They look soft, with no shell, but they are hard. They have but one heart, and it cannot ever live.

—Eila Stele[1]
