      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. It sounds most like Taln to me, which makes sense considering he's one of the main characters for the back five.
  2. Maybe after they realized the first few didn't work they kept doing it because they hated the idea of humans carrying dead spren around.
  3. IIRC we haven't, but we did see Nalan use a regrowth fabrial on Szeth. Besides, we know that Kaladin can use stormlight to heal from shardblade wounds, it wouldn't make sense if the more powerful version of such couldn't.
  5. When you respond to people calling you a nerd with "And proud of it". Gotcha.
  6. And the lightweaving hung around constantly for years making shady deals, beating up maids and ultimately killing Shallan's stepmom all on it's lonesome? Unlikely.
  7. When you immediately recognize that the guy sitting next to you in class is wearing a SA shirt, and start a conversation with him about the cosmere. Edit: That depends. How much of a sanderfan are you?
  8. Except in order for something to be investiture like how it was as part of Adonlasium, it would have to contain intent from all of the shards. The energy analogy fails because it doesn't have any consideration for intent.
  9. Also, this WoB seems to imply that the surges themselves are part of Roshar magic in general. If this is the case, then surgebinding Dalinar did wouldn't drive out Cultivation's influence. (Source)
  10. Surgebinding seems to be a very 'mixed' system. I don't think it's correct to think of Honor's surgebinding in opposition to Cultivation's surgebinding. It's a cooperative system not a competitive one.
  11. When she soulcast the goblet in WoK pattern asked what she was and she replied "I'm terrified"
  12. WoB tells us that Shallan is one level ahead of Kaladin at the end of WoR. Not all orders get shardblades at the same level. (Source)
  13. In the cosmere, would Einstein's relativity equations have to account for investiture as part of energy density?
