      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. heralds

    Might have something to do with him sharing a name with the main protagonist. Which other heralds could it have been? 1. Taln. Back in damnation, so out. 2. Jesrien. The leader, also, the designated source of exposition in this scene. Out. 3. Nale. Shows up first in interludes as an antagonist. Better not give him a sympathetic view point before that. 4. Ishar. In the main story he styles himself “god king” and generally behaves like a mad primmadonna. He is also out. The other 5 are the female heralds, and it would be strange for a man in genderist Alethkar to be mamed after a female herald (Seriously, the other boys of Hearthstone would have teased him about this endlessly).
  2. I don’t really want to see a roantic relationship develop between Kaladin and Syl, but if such a thing is to happen, I do not think Syl will become fleshy. Rather, Kaladin will become less corporeal and more “cognitive”. Maybe he can take over her dad’s ‘business’.
  3. It’s a bit well, rude, to hijack a person’s dying words (to their loved ones, comrades in arms, or whoever happens to be near) to broadcast some cryptic oracular mumbo-jumbo.
  4. Just to add, I love the little Easter egg where Kal finally tells Azure who he really is, and that his full name is Kaladin, and she responds "Ah a regal name"*. Yeah, you would like that particular name, Azure. *Quoted from memory of audiobook, so, not exact.
  5. Kal and Rysn anybody? Anybody want to board the good ship Wondersail? (Or is it Wandersail? Hard to hear the difference on the audible version) Anybody? I was so hoping Rysn would get to meet and interact with the main radiants when they were all at TC. At least she sort-of met Dalinar.
  6. Ok, Imma put this here: 200 broams sez Hesina was originally from Karbranth. Better yet, let's say Kal was actually born there. Choose him as Honor's champion, Odium can't touch him. King T saves the world.
  7. @randuir But of course! Please credit me, if you would, I'm Zea mays there too. Also, feel free to PM me with any changes you would like to the pic.
  8. Wow, I'm surprised. I really expected her to live. Oh well. Rest in peace Eshonai, we barely knew ye, and you set the whole plot in motion.

  10. But...but all that other stuff was fun!
  11. I thought it was rather unnecessary either way. We already know the book comes out in a few days They already published a spoiler free review. This is just... eh.
  12. Yes. We poor unfortunate souls In pain In need Damnation where can I find a sea-witch to trade my soul er voice to for an early OB copy?
  13. Welp, it's been a great month! I will miss the Tuesday morning rush. See you all on the other side of Oathbringer
  14. Deep sigh. These chapters were great, no doubt, but I miss Brightlord Brooding-eyes. Where is my flying bridgeman and his roving wilderness-survival-seminar-for would-be voidbringers? Did Shallan casually mention that several highstorms have come and gone?
  15. No one has ever needed the help of a chicken to be that.
