      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. Could it be music spren because they have rhythms like the parshendi?
  2. Hey folks, I usually get a signed copy from Brandon's website (http://store.brandonsanderson.com/), but I am not seeing it. I went to his other website (https://brandonsanderson.com/) and read the latest update about the release party at BYU. It mentioned ordering it from the BYU book store, but I am uncertain if I can just get it shipped to my house or if I have to go to Utah to pick it up (not happening). It also mentioned that Weller Books was going to ship signed copies, but the link is broken. So my question is, how do I get a signed, hardcover copy of Oathbringer???
  3. For a massive book like Oathrbringer, I read them. For smaller books like the Wax and Wayne novels, I avoid. Purely because they are so short that don't want to read 1/5 of the book before it even comes out.
  4. It's Hoid
  5. People people people...Haven't you realized yet that Hoid's real name is Taneleer Tivan?
  6. Prof, because there was no big reveal of Marsh's powers in the first book.
  7. Good answer, I would have also accepted, "Radical Penguins"
  8. What is the square root of a penguin?
  9. Deadpool? I would argue that Deadpool is not an X-men movie. Since he isn't an x-men, and it has very little to do with x-men in general.
  10. Positive conscious change (Cultivation) <------------------No change (Preservation)--------------->Negative Conscious Change (Ruin) Ruin and Preservation worked together, for awhile, but inevitably failed. That should be enough to show how they aren't fully balanced/opposites. Ruin & Cultivation is called nature/cycle of life...Stuff grows, then it dies and decays, then it grows again, Oh no our crops got burned because of a fire, oh it turns out that is actually good for the ground and everything prospers, everybody happy. The end. I do like the idea of a fourth shard coming into play here. It feels like it makes the most sense, if there are groupings/pairings. (just for these shards as far as i have thought) Chaos (unplanned change) Cultivation (positive conscious change) Ruin (Negative Conscious change) Preservation (no change)
  11. I highly recommend dipping into the Sci-fi world. Isaac Asimov is a brilliant scientist/author who layed the foundation for many famous sci-fi stories we have today. Much like tolkien is to the fantasy tropes. The Robot series: starting with Caves of Steel. Its a murder mystery, but in the future...dun dun dun.. The Foundation series: Same universe, way farther in the future, really cool philosophical and statistical stuff. Also, if you haven't finished the Ender's game universe, that can take up some of your time in between Sanderson binges. Lots of books, cool stuff. Ender's series is better than the shadow series IMO
  12. Awaken some stem cells, with the command "cause cancer".
  13. Tension has to do with a pulling force transmitted axially by a string like object. What if connection is like a string, and a surgebinder who can affect tension can affect the tension of the "strings" of connection between people/planets/objects...
