      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 agree with what others have said, humans in general are primarily visual, so the enhanced vision tends to get mentioned and used the most, but Tin enhances all the senses, and a blind character (or a hypothetical allomancer of a race that is less visually orientated than humans) would notice and use the enhancement of the other senses more.
  2. regarding Wyndle, he said that his people took "precautions" before he bonded with Lift to prevent him losing his memory, and it apparently did not work perfectly.
  3. I don't hold the gap for writing the WoT against him at all, but I'm glad the wait is almost over. Just a few more months! And I'm sure the book will be awesome enough to be worth the wait.
  4. I like it better then the first version, hated the way Kaladin was drawn in the first version.
  5. I still think we need a " dungspren" rank.
  6. What is the state of Scadralian medical care as of the Alloy of Law era? Have they discovered the vaccine yet? Do they know about germs?
  7. I have good news for you, Brandon has said we will find out more about Steris in the sequel.
  8. well I think it would be cool if it was a Shardnaginata. Because those are just awesome.
  9. I have maintained for some time that Dalinar is/will be in order 8 (resolute/builder). I will continue to maintain this until I turn blue in the face, or until proven wrong. As somebody noted on the other thread, our potential Radiants seem to all have conflicts over their Order's defining traits, Kaladin with leadership, Shallan with honesty, etc. Dalinar's conflict in book 1 was all about his lack of certainty.
  10. I believe Kaladin will end up with a Shardblade eventually, but I do not believe it will be Szeth's Shardblade. Also, in response to a post about the black sphere, I remind you that Szeth is not currently carrying that thing, he hid it somewhere so he couldn't readily be compelled to give it away.
  11. I think it would be cheap to have Miles survive at this point. Besides they made pretty darn sure and probably burned the body (that's what I'D do).
  12. given his answer to the first question about Shalash and the death quote about a female vandal scratching out her own eyes, I'm pretty sure that counts as an oblique confirmation that the Mistress is in fact Shalash.
  13. But then he gets better! Anyway, it's great to see you delurking Grey Pligrim! I also think Stormlight the best and I am devouring any information I can get on Stormlight 2. and the Emperor's soul does indeed have plenty of Cosmere stuff.
  14. I didn't actually expect to get an answer other then "RAFO" for the second one!
  15. psst: both of the questions in hoser's post were me.......
  16. Hello Josh, welcome aboard, and watch out for spikes!
  17. maybe people born on Leap Day would get extra-special powers to make up for the rarity of their birthdate.
  18. I really really would like to be there, but it's a very long way to travel all the way from Canada, and quite expensive and logistically complicated for me, and I've never done anything like that before.
  19. Hoid is pretty much an awesome guy and can pull of crazy rust like that.
  20. Referred to by whom I wonder? The Seventeenth Shard? Do they know about solar systems? Do they have spaceships?
  21. I believe Brandon has said that that particular religion was actually part of his inspiration for Warbreaker, he decided to expand on the concept.
  22. The popular theory about Dalinar (at least at one point) was that he didn't have a spren because of his Shardblade and now that he's given it up he'll probably end up attracting a spren.
  23. I agree, it was very appropriately symmetrical. I loved that moment, especially with the conversation that followed it. "Today you and your men sacrificed to buy me twenty six hundred priceless lives, all I had to repay you with was a single priceless sword, I call that a bargain" Hell yeah, Dalinar! As far as moments that suckerpunched me, Taravangian was a big one, Shallan's shardblade didn't suckerpunch me but it did make me do a double take when I read the "ten heartbeats" line.
  24. I have a major fancrush on Kaladin. I'd also be willing to date Elend or Renarin, I have a soft spot for the nerdy types.
  25. I should think that allomantic pulses are allomantic pulses, and if she'd felt strange allomantic pulses it would have been mentioned specifically.
