      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. That was my exact reading of this interlude on my 2nd readthrough.
  2. Man, if shardblades screamed when held by humans, think of when Odium's minions start using their captured blades.
  3. My thought is that figure was of Shallan's invention rather than something real. It combines the horse figures she had seen at one point in Urithiru with the Midnight Mother's influence on her drawings.
  4. Hmm... “My spren claims that recording this will be good for me, so here I go. Everyone says I will swear the Fourth Ideal soon, and in so doing, earn my armor. I simply don’t think that I can. Am I not supposed to want to help people? —From drawer 10-12, sapphire” Excerpt From: Brandon Sanderson. “Oathbringer.”
  5. OB Day! I didn't read a word until it arrived this morning. I will admit, though, that the itch was getting to me, especially after reading some of the spoiler-free reviews. I was thinking well...maybe just the prologue, the day before. But I was too busy yesterday to succumb to temptation. So...who else made it?
  6. Though, the horse itself also does keep replacing the horsehair...
  7. Forgive me, but it seems like you're leaping past any counter-arguments made elsewhere, assuming that your idea is correct, then asking what everyone thinks of all the moral/philosophical conclusions you've drawn from that idea being true. I think you're skipping a step and making conclusions based on a very shaky supporting structure.
  8. You may be correct about Jasnah's intentions, but you may not be. Nobody can disprove your point, but neither can you prove it. There's just...no smoking gun here, nor in the other thread.
  9. I had this problem too. If anyone else has this issue, there are many web-based doc -to- epub converters that work for free. I used one of these to convert White Sand, then it can be read in any e-reader.
  10. You guys are thinking too small. Guided Shardmissile Discussion Ahh. Good times.
  11. On course, steady as she goes. I've read WoK, with a WoR re-read waiting in the wings so I'm primed and ready to go on release day. Between them and for something different, I've been reading "The Ends of the World" by Peter Brannen. Despite the fantasy-sounding title, it is non-fiction - still a fascinating book, although slightly depressing. Haven't been hit with the desire to read spoilers like I was with WoR, I think because I felt pretty strongly that it lessened the experience for me last time,
  12. I think Lightflame is right on, but also want to add one piece. These things are called "Dawnshards" - which rather strongly implies they came first. The sprenblades were imitations of the honorblades - meaning they came after. Sure, the honorblades could have come before dawnshards, but then why the name? So beyond just literary/narrative reasons, that alone to me suggests the dawnshards are not the same as shard/sprenblades. Disclaimer: as a member of the "No Oathbringer Spoilers Support Group", I haven't read one word of that book, so any illumination that text brings is as lost to me as the dawnshards themselves.
  13. Wow. Where does one get such power?
  14. Wow, I mean, I may be insane, but that's crazy!
  15. I'm with you. I failed when WoR was released, but this time I've avoided even the prologue. I'll be happier reading it all through at once, just need to resist temptation!
