      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. At some point, Raoden tells Galladon that Duladen is under Fjordic rule, and that Jesker is no longer practiced. Galladon responds with sadness and remarks on the lack of authenticity of the Jeskeri Mysteries. This conversation was perhaps given as an indicator as to the mechanism by which magic is made on Sel. I've been thinking about this for a while now, and posted some speculations here.
  2. Thanks! Would you rather: Own a proximity detector fabrial, or own a pain-diminisher fabrial?
  3. If you're looking for the shorts, I'd wait, since there's going to be a collection of Cosmere short stories coming out later this year all in one place. Arcanum Unbound is the working title, I believe.
  4. Seeker. I think that bronze is the most underrated metal, and while it's more useful for Mistborn, I think I would waste a lot of my life if I were a Slider. Can't wait for that thing for an hour? Ok, instead of doing the dishes, I'll just burn cadmium.
  5. Yup. People have also speculated that the Kaenigs were LMD's of one person.
  6. Stormlight, very little question to it. There's more of it, for one, and there's (in my opinion) more cool stuff in it. Would you rather have a spanreed or a pain-diminishing fabrial?
  7. Life Model Decoys... Where were they? The holograms?
  8. Mare Tineye
  9. 8. Cronus' Scimitar 9. The Spear that killed Kelsier 10. The Mistletoe (The only thing that didn't swear to harm Baldor in Norse mythology. Look it up. It's sort of sad and somewhat similar to the story of Achilles.)
  10. The Flintstones
  11. game

  12. Now I finally know why the Foundation trilogy is regarded the way it is. I love the epic feel and the changing perspective of the Foundation over the centuries. That, added to the fact that there is still a question of whether they're going to succeed over the years, makes a really enjoyable story. I'm also in the middle of the Fionavar Tapestry by Guy Gavriel Kay. It's a well told story.
  13. I'm only up to three... And that includes mistletoe.
  14. I am very much liking Khriss now. White Sand, come so I can get more Khriss.
  15. Just finished Imager. I enjoyed the world and the magic quite a bit, and I'm always a fan of teachers and students, but there wasn't a lot of tension in the way it was written. I also read The ABC Murders in the space of twenty-four hours. Agatha Christie is really good at what she does. Moving on to A Cat Among the Pidgeons.
