      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.

  3. Saw the tweet and have been waiting for the reveal of the contents! Now you should just send it to me :-)
  4. sixth time that
  5. Stomach acid started ;D
  6. The cat saw
  7. a sack full
  8. On the slopes
  9. Just finished "Fallen Dragon" by Peter F. Hamilton. Starting re-read of "Knife of Dreams" by Robert Jordan.
  10. Ruin wasn't able to see metal clearly but as bright lights (if I recall correctly). Could it be similar that the Almighty wouldn't see spren?
  11. The Time Master Trilogy by Louise Cooper Stole this from Amazon.. good teaser: This is a series that I read many years ago and still something I remember with fondness.
  12. "The Name of the Wind" by Patrick Rothfuss. Awesome book!
  13. Not sure if this is directed at me or not. But.. There are still 16 personalities to the shards. I doubt because Sazed is holding two of them that you would remove the personalities from the count. Removing "Ruin" from Sazed would make Sazed Preservation. But as he has two which are odds at one another, he is neither "Preservation" or "Ruin", thus you would say that the mixture has created a new personality. Boldness added by me. Therefore, you are wrong. The closest you are to being right is that Sazed could be a PART of Seventeenth Shard, but I doubt this as well. From my reading of the posts on this thread, no one has gone ahead and said Sazed is the one-and-only member of the group "seventeeth shard". I only said that he could have formed or played a significant role in its formation and they play homage to Sazed by the group's name.
  14. Each of the Shardholders reflect the persona of their shard. My suggestion was, since Sazed holds two shards, he isn't either Preservation or Ruin. Since the shards could still be separated from Sazed (evidenced by death of Leras and Ati, Aona and Skaze), you wouldn't remove them from the total-shard count. If you were to consider yourself different from Preservation and Ruin, I'd assume you'd simply have a new name for yourself - thus the 17th is born. I still think its feasible that Sazed has a role to play in the group "seventeeth shard". If people have started world-hopping, why couldn't Sazed be involved? With his thirst for knowledge and now immortality/time to play with he could have hopped worlds or instructed others to look for people with information on shards. (Note: this is more of a theory considering there definitely isn't enough information out there on the events after Hero of Ages or the seventeeth shard other than a few references.)
  15. I didn't pick up until recently (another post) that the Almighty and Stormfather are two separate beings. My gut reaction was that the Almighty was still alive, yet hidden away, which I further compounded with "Hoid's" letter as the possible addressee. Would a Herald really be patrolling the storms? If he was so worried about Kaladin riding the storm, shouldn't he be worried that his presence would be noticed?
