      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 don't know if Ko!oss have a religion (it totally does look better spelled like that), but Brandon has said that this story gives some hints as to what Kelsier was doing after the rebirth of Scadrial.
  2. well here's the thing, even assuming that lashings work directly on an inquisitor, and working under the assumption that flared pewter is about as effective as stormlight in strengthening the body, steel and iron both use magnetism, where lashings and reverse lashings (the stormlight equivalent of steel pushes and iron pulls) work off of gravity. The force of Gravity on an object is = G x m1 x m2 / r^2 the force of magnetism on an object is = Ke x q1 x q2 / r^2 where G = 6.67 x10^-11 N m^2 /Kg^2 and Ke = 9.0x10^9 N m^2 / C^2 So an inquisitor can push and pull with about 20 times the force of a windrunner's lashing. This makes sense, since magnetism is far, FAR stronger than gravity. The inquisitor would massively outspeed a windrunner, and over 20 lashings to the ground would be required to counter a single steel push
  3. Not so much a cosmere question, but I just finished Bands of Mourning. The Set has Nukes don't they? Or at least they are close to building them.
  4. Is Cataclysm a candidate for one of the shards or does the Reckoners series exist outside of the Cosmere?
