      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. The Expanse of the Densities is an area in Shadesmar (the Cognitive Realm) presented in a map in the Way of Kings. It is one of three other Expanses, each of which represents a Shardworld other than Roshar that neighbors it in the Cognitive Realm.
  2. Ooh I love this. And I want it.
  3. Hey, guess who’s an idiot and forgot to type out my WoBs after uploading the audio? (Spoiler Alert: It’s Me) Anyways, here are some of the questions that I asked and the answers that I got.
  4. I’ll be coming as well; I’ve got a list of questions that I’ve made with my friend, which I’m planning to record and transcribe.
  5. I have a completely different theory. It has been stated by Brandon Sanderson that there was an opposition to Adonalsium, some sort of "Other Force" that created a weapon that caused Adonalsium to split into 16 Shards. However, when we look at where two Shards fight directly, like in the case in which Vin, as Preservation, killed Ati, as Ruin, we see that both Shards "die." Perhaps it is the same with Adonalsium and this "Other Force." Perhaps the weapon that the opposition to Adonalsium created also split that "Other Force" into 16 "Other Shards," as I will call them. Now, let us look at the nature of Bleeder. She wants freedom from Sazed, or Harmony, and that may be another, different opposite to Preservation-Freedom. Instead of preserving things as they are, perhaps Trell, the "Other Shard" counterpart of Preservation wishes to free people and bring change. Also, the worshipers of Trell believe that the stars are holy and are the "Thousand Eyes of Trell," while the Mists, created by Preservation, block the stars from the ordinary eye. Also, Nalt, the main antagonist of Trelagism, may be a counterpart of Ruin, and the believers in Trelagism believe that the Sun is the "Single Eye of Nalt," blocking the stars from the view of the people. This can be linked to Ruin as another opposite, instead of bringing Ruin, Nalt blocks change and prefers things to stay as they are.
  6. One word. Atium.
  7. I was going to be a coinshot but then decided on seer. This poll was a great idea. Thanks dude!
  8. Logan Lerman could possibly be the young Lord Ruler (from the Atium Mind). Yes, I know we all hate him for the Percy Jackson movies but still, it was the director's fault for those, not his.
