      Oathbringer Spoiler Policy   11/13/2017

      Oathbringer is out! Let's make our policy on spoilers clear! 1. You must preface topics with Oathbringer spoilers with the prefix [OB] in the front 2. You are only allowed to post spoilers and spoiler topics in the Oathbringer Spoiler Board, Cosmere Theories, and some select work-related forums. 3. For posts in the Oathbringer Spoiler Board you do not need to use spoiler tags inside a topic marked [OB]. For Cosmere Theories, you also do not need to put spoiler tags inside your topic if the topic has [OB] in the title. However, for Cosmere Theories, if you are adding Oathbringer stuff to an old theory without the [OB] tag, those must go in spoiler tags and you must make it obvious outside the spoiler tag that the spoiler is regarding Oathbringer content. 4. For select things that do require talking about OB spoilers, in Events, Coppermind, and Arcanum forums, those are allowed but keep OB spoilers in spoiler tags 5. Avoid and minimize spoilers in topic titles--even though those two boards will not appear in the Recent Topics ticker, topic titles still appear in Recent Activity and the forum home.  6. You aren't allowed to post Oathbringer spoilers in places other than listed, even with spoiler tags.  It will be nine months and then the Oathbringer board will be re-merged with the Stormlight board and you will not need to tag these spoilers. If you'd like to move something in the Stormlight Archive board to the Oathbringer board, to update it with new Oathbringer information, Report the post and we will happily move it to the Oathbringer spoiler board. Part-by-part Reactions Though the Oathbringer Spoiler Board will be very spoilery, very fast (maybe don't come there until you've read the book, as people do have copies that bookstores sold early), you'll have these five topics for reactions if you want to nerd out: Part 1 Reactions
      Part 2 Reactions
      Part 3 Reactions
      Part 4 Reactions
      Full Book Reactions For parts 1-4, they will not include the interludes immediately following it. On Discord All Oathbringer spoilers on Discord will be exclusively in the #oathbringer_spoilers channel for the nine month spoiler period and nowhere else.

  1. I was about to give you a piece of my mind for calling The Rithmatist "BS" till I remembered whose initials those were.
  2. Some scholars today think Romeo and Juliet was never actually meant to be taken as seriously as the literary critics of today take it. Some think it's actually a satire, with it having much flatter characters than Shakespeare was known for writing and exaggeratedly dire consequences for the two teenagers' hormonal life choices. Romances of that sort were quite common in Shakespeare's day and an exaggerated, satirical take on them would have been immediately recognized by the theatergoers of his day, while after the genre fizzled out the work would have remained to be taken seriously by later readers of the Folios.
  3. Merry womb escape anniversary!

  4. The REAL scariest thing about this Halloween is how quickly October 31st came without me doing anything productive.

      I know that feeling. I intended to have enough worldbuilding written up to start writing a novel tomorrow for Nanowrimo. Let's just say I'm...behind schedule

  5. Unless the first wish requires knowledge of the inner workings of wish magic, which, being a force of magic far beyond your mere humanity, causes your mind to be instantly frayed and destroyed beyond all recognition.
  6. I don't have to take this from you. You're not my mo- ... Dang it.
  7. Seldom are geniuses recognized in their time.
  8. It makes them go faster.
  9. To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Doctor Who. The sci-fi is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of temporal mechanics most of the plot will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also the Doctor's humanistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterization - his personal philosophy draws heavily from classic trickster spirit folklore, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these plot lines, to realize that they're not just entertaining- they say something deep about TIME. As a consequence people who dislike Doctor Who truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in the Tenth Doctor's existential catchphrase "wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey," which itself is a cryptic reference to non-linear models of temporal flow. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those of addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Sydney Newman's genius unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools... how I pity them. And yes by the way, I DO have a Doctor Who tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only- And even they have to demonstrate that they accept Tom Baker as the objectively best Doctor (preferably with Matt Smith as second best) beforehand. Meme being referenced so nobody thinks I'm serious and wants to strangle me.
  10. Of course I know that. That was for humorous effect. Do not presume to correct my Doctor Who knowledge, peasant. I know what the Looms of Gallifrey are. I understand the Cartmel Master Plan. I know every member of the Deca. I know the Master's true name. I can rattle off the names of every member of the Cult of Skaro. I know which race cracked open Arkeon. I can spit out the names 'Raxacoricofallapatorius' and 'The Mighty Jagrafesse of the Holy Hadrojassic Maxarodenfroe' without stuttering, as @Anarkitty can attest. I know both acronyms for U.N.I.T. and can clarify the timeline discrepancies. I know which eldritch abomination belched out the Nestene Consciousness. I've tracked the Doctor across parallel universes most don't even know he's been to, from Looker to Time Turner. Unlike the Brigadier, I know that bombs won't stop those maggots. I can keep track of the most wibbly of Moffat's plots. I was writing Time War fanfictions years before George Mann published that Moldox nonsense. ... ...I'm probably an irredeemable nerd, but writing all that gave me the strangest adrenaline rush. I think I finally know why the elitist YouTube commenters do it.
  11. Well I'm sorry a smartly dressed British alien hasn't shown up and shown me my mother's entire backstory through time travel yet.
  12. Arsenal needs to have a talk with Vondra. I could write up a scene where that goes very far south in a hurry, culminating in Arsenal becoming more... explosive. I'm waiting for Twi to weigh in on this.
  13. ...it's actually kind of tempting to make this my member title.
  14. They may be whipper snappers, but they are also intensely book-obsessed whipper snappers. They probably know.
  15. With genetic engineering, the world is your oyster--and oysters can be whatever you want them to be!

      Up until the oysters gain sentience and start lobbying for GE animal rights...
