      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. When you start looking sideways at people with earrings, wondering if they're slowly being led astray by ruin....
  2. I do this too. I read Silence in the Forests of Hell in the bath......and read a couple of others at times in the shower. Ebooks are very versatile you see....
  3. Do you know who it is? Cause i'm gonna be honest, i would actually put in a police report, if I were you. I am so so angry that someone would do that!
  4. When you talk about the death of characters in a way that people who haven't read Mistborn feel sad about their passing.....
  5. When your profile picture is an Aon, your online alias is made up of Aons, and the idea of Aon poetry excites you just a little too much
  6. Brandon once visited the Nightwatcher and asked for the ability to write fantasy novels unparalleled by any other. The Nightwatcher in turn cursed him with this thread, knowing if he ever came across it he'd be really really embarrassed.
  7. You know you're a Sanderson fan when someone types "BS" and you assume they mean Sanderson, when in fact they mean bull rust.
  8. Floorbreaker gives me life. I had to get up at 5am, so thank you for that.
  9. Actually, you can kill to prevent death, Nightblood's "Destroy Evil" command compels him to destroy whatever evil his wielder sees, because evil is a perception. If you kill a man who would otherwise kill another, you are preventing death. The death of the person that man would have killed. Of course there is the risk of misinterpretation which could make the sword believe that the only way to truly prevent any death is to kill everyone....,
  10. "Prevent death" Given this command, the sword would only be able to kill where it prevented others from being killed. It allows the wielder to defend their own life, but not take those of others where it would not save another life. No issues with the nature of innocence or evil, just straight out a life can only be taken to prevent the loss of another -- or many other -- lives.
  11. When your friends dream about finding special edition copies of Sanderson books for you....I've known this girl a month
  12. It was good for me, was it good for you too? *ahem* But seriously, I see a lot of potential here.
  13. When you're asked if you're a metal fan and you reply "Yeah, I like pretty much everything except Hemalurgy, its too agressive for me"
  14. Every book Brandon has released up to this point has been a "warm up" novel, each was written accidentally. Sanderson was once actually part of the Cosmere, he wrote about our world and the books were so good that the cognitive and spiritual realm reshaped the physical realm in the books image. He is writing cosmere novels in hope of returning the world to how it was.
  15. Actually, now that it's been mentioned that's decidedly odd. Have we ever heard of Shards not being powered with Saphires? Now that its been brought up, i'm inclined to believe that Sapphires are used -- not because of its efficiency with adhesion -- but because it's not as useful in soul casting. It's been said that emeralds are most useful in working with organics like food, it might just be that Sapphires hold stormlight well but aren't as useful in Soulcasting.
