      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.

  2. My take is that there is no Shard actually present on First of the Sun in the same sense as Cultivation being present on Roshar. And that "one of the 16 Shards of Adonalsium is represented and involved in First of the Sun" is the same thing as saying "Paalm represents the involvement of one of the non-Harmony Shards" and "Only Harmony is present on Scadrial".
  3. That was so much fun! @Overlord Jebus was the queue from noon till 3, when he was joined by @Aurimus_ and me. We met later with @Megasif, @Yata, SirCodey, @rjl and @Inkayaku. We do have a full recording!! The employee didn't let us leave phones but he let me leave my recorder. I'll upload it when I get home. Brandon saw us first, and last! He was jetlagged when he started and had more energy at the end of the signing. The store employee was bamboozled that we'd record the whole thing and ask so many questions, haha. We were booted from the store at closing time, so we just grabbed some snacks and got back at the back of the line. When we got to the very end Brandon had to sign the store's stock and had enough time to give us a Sharder Q&A. We've met lovely cosmere fans in the store and queue, including--maybe they'll read this and recognize themselves--our good company from the front of the line (hey @kalamitous_emoashions), who asked cool questions including why Odium is referred to as the broken one, which got an interesting answer, an adorable Renarin cosplay, and two ladies whom we think were mother and daughter (I wish my mom was a cosmere fan) and were so eager and fun. Some interesting questions have been asked; this will all come out in the 4-hour recording that I'll upload when I get home, but I'll give this in advance... (Oathbringer spoilers) And finally, the Sharder Q&A's bombshell that made it all worth it: The non-paraphrased transcript might shed more light on this.

  6. Tried to find this WoB and then I realised it was missing. Here you go: https://www.reddit.com/r/Mistborn/comments/3x84c6/are_there_any_black_people_in_scadrial/cy3853l/ edit: While I'm at it, I also found an entry lacking the Brandon Sanderson title before the answer: https://wob.coppermind.net/events/100/#e3622
  7. Going off of Glys's "He doesn't see what is, but of what is to come", my theory is that Truthwatchers have the same kind of visions, but of the present. Hence their name. And also, I think that's Truthwatchers' and Renarin's manifestation of Illumination. I don't think they can lightweave illusions. They have visions instead. This has been my theory for a long time but showing how Bondsmiths have fundamentally different uses of Adhesion and Cohesion reinforces my conviction. Spiritual Illumination? ... The problem with my theory is that none of the other surges we have seen are involuntary...
  8. He glanced to the side, then cocked his head. Was he looking at her-- Oh, no. It was just the book, which she was still sitting on. --- "You've been the hottest topics on the spanreed informant networks! Dalinar Kholin, the Blackthorn, has gone mad! He claims to have killed the Almighty!" --- "But this is . . . like their bathwater," Eth complained. "Chilled," Rock said, "with spices. Is good taste." "Is bathwater," Eth said, imitating Rock's accent. --- Dalinar grunted. "Your name is Lift, right?" "Right." "And your order?" "More food."
  9. I believe it's both a leftover from the Prime story arc and possibly an indication that there is a Fused-like business going on with the Heralds.
