      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 loved it. Iconoclast was one of of my favorite characters in the RP. I'm happy to see this ending for him.
  2. Add my name! This is super cool.
  3. This, in my opinion, was one of the best parts of the book. Sanderson was able to explore moral ambiguity in a fascinating way, but without making people into nothing but depraved despots and sexpots for the sake of realism. The sympathy we had for the listeners. Kaladin's conflict over who to protect. So much else, each exploring a facet of real humanity in the stunning world that is Roshar. I love this book so, so much. And I can't wait for the next one.
  4. Everything you guys have said is far more insightful than what I can muster, so instead I'll just say this. I really, really thought that Sebarial was about to be crowned king of Alethkar.
  5. Oathbringer has inspired me to create a cosmere meme account on Instagram. I can't theorize as well as the rest of you, so this will be contribution to the fandom. 

    The book was good. Like, Cog crying at 2:00 AM good. 

  6. Thanks, guys. You make me remember why I spent so long in this corner of the Internet.
  7. This is gorgeous. Gorgeous. I know I'm not as heavy into the theorizing side of things as some other Sanderson fans, but when I'm up late talking about whatever massive implications Oathbringer is sure to have on the cosmere with one of the friends I've "converted," I know I'll be ecstatic to use this new resource. Thank you so much for making this a reality, @Chaos and @Argent and everyone else involved. We all appreciate it.
  8. I got a 1540 on the new SAT, out of 1600. I think, I think I'm going to apply to Stanford. I know my chances are slim, but I've got to try. Their economics program is right out of my dreams. Maybe I can do it. Maybe. I haven't posted here in a long time, but this was good enough of an event to make me want to do so. Wish me luck, guys.
  9. Hmm. Do you think that should be something in conjunction with the Guard Epics going nuts, or just its own craziness?
  10. I'll do the same.
  11. I think that both of these things sound good. That leaves Portland and the Dalles... Since Twi isn't around anymore, I could do something similar for Portland, running things through the planning thread beforehand. If anyone else would prefer to do that ( @winter devotion maybe?) , that's OK too, since you probably understand the characters better than me, plus the whole been-around-much-longer thing. I think that the best plan for the Dalles is Arsenal destroying everything. @Kobold King, we could probably do this without any writing. Maybe you could just remove posts up until the point where Arsenal is raining missiles down on the city, using your mod abilities to retcon that into being the end of the Dalles? It'd probably take like three posts hidden to make a plausible ending out of what's already there.
  12. Gorgeous writing, Comatose. If there's some way to do this for the other threads, I want to. I think we all have to admit at this point that for what it's worth, WHiO is over. It's all we can do to give it an ending it deserves, for the sake of the time we did have. @Edgedancer @Voidus @Kobold King @TwiLyghtSansSparkles, what do you say? I don't even think we need to fully write it out. A bullet point summary for the ending of each thread would be good enough, in my eyes. edit: @Blackhoof too, I forgot to link you.
  13. @TwiLyghtSansSparkles, what are you thinking, about this? We respect your privacy and choices, of course, but do you have any input?
  14. Popping in to say that I'm still invested, and still happy to write should there be someone who posts in a thread containing my characters. I've just been busy with college applications and a new school which actually provides good academics. So, yeah. Still here, still WHiO-y as always .
  15. Almost missed this!

    Happy birthday, man!

      Thank you, Kobold! I first became familiar with your writing when I was 15, and now here I am, one year away from (legal) adulthood, and still fascinated by the madness of your fictional necromancer. :P

      I appreciate your message. :)
