      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 work at a shipping warehouse and got to peek at a copy last week...I thought I was lucky....now I'm just jealous!
  2. That's kind of what I meant. I guess my statement was poorly worded.
  3. I'm fairly certain it is one of the creations of the unmade referred to as the midnight mother or Re-shephir. Like the midnight essence we see in one of Dalinar's visions.
  4. Awesome asreal! I got a sneak peek at those earlier today but only for a minute. I'm happy Brandon posted them...and I'm happy you shared!
  5. I have a suspicion that it is going to be Moash. There is a scene in WoK when he is practicing with the spear in a chasm, by the light of a dozen spheres, and he is described as having an equal number of shadows. I know that it is far from definitive, it may not even be foreshadowing since the number of shadows is different. Its just a scene that made me think of the possibility, and after pondering the idea, it seemed to fit. While he and Moash were friends, they were also opposites. Kaladin wanted to excel at fighting in order to save people, Moash to kill them. I could keep listing examples...but the list goes on. Btw...he also has shardplate. As the singular connector pointed out, Brandon likes to develop his important characters. It would be an interesting plot development to have these two, once friends, stand toe to toe, in the battle for roshar.
  6. I Once knew someone named uncle Andy. He wasn't really my uncle. And I don't think his name was Andy either. If you ever meet him...don't accept any drinks from him.
  7. I would follow him until he went to sleep. Then fill his room with concrete and seal the doors and windows shut. Or Lure him into a pitfall trap with really weak sides. No crawling out, and if he uses his dynamite trick he 'll just bury himself. Once he's down there you can pick your method of disposal. Really, the key here is detainment. Once they can't get away...you can just wear them down. I would suggest tracking them to the place where they live. Digging 25 ft deep dead falls with barbed steel stakes outside of each exit. Setting the building on fire with teams of gunmen waiting in a perimeter. The idea is to force them to wait it out in the flames...or flee into a pitfall...all the while being riddled by bullets. Btw...all of these are assuming that i am not invested...nor can I hire anyone who is.
  8. I'm pretty sure there is a WoB (or something) out there about lerasium actually doing something different for allomancers. Remember, we have only seen lerasium used by a non allomancer. So...there is really no way to know what D-lerasium burn would do.
  9. Thanks idealistic. I don't have anything more than a hunch, but I feel like there has to be some specific nature to each God metal that fits into the currently existing structure. Atium being temporal, and lerasium being enhancement.
  10. Something that has always bothered / interested me is how atium appears to operate like a temporal metal, and how we only see it alloyed with another temporal metal. I know the assumption is that each metal can produce a God metal alloy...but does anyone have the WoB for this?
  11. When you start wondering which ancient deities may have actually been homicitally manical crime lords...
  12. Boon: You get one elephant that eats and poops twice as much as normal. Bane: you can never go more that 20ft. From your over eating/pooping elephant. Wish: I wish for an awesome boon/bane idea.
  13. Congrats on joining the shard! Have an upvote! Welcome to our friendly community of fans! Now go away and don't come back until you finish the trilogy! Its not because youre not welcome. You totally are. Its because you are risking depriving yourself of a joyous experience all of us here cherish. I wish I could forget what happens...just so I could go back and read it for the first time again. Trust our advice...and don't spoil it.
  14. I think it's safe to say that the number of reasons is literally greater than zero. Btw...ist das ein gerbil fetus?
  15. Well...burning pewter helps him to ignore pretty much all of the other drawbacks to run savanthood. So why not. After all, when the spike gets pulled out he collapses from exhaustion and blood loss. If pewter can block all that out...a sword tip in his shoulder shouldn't be too much of a bother. Just sayin.
