      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. 1: How did you first become a fan of Brandon Sanderson? It's been a while since I tried fantasy, and I wanted to start again. Found Mistborn. Just blown away. Now I have read all Cosmere novels! 2: Why do you like his books? Personally for me, it is the plot and worldbuilding. I feel like I'm part of his world when reading the novels. Sanderson creates amazing plots with perfect mix of foreshadowing, twists and the 'avalanche' climaxes where everything comes together incredibly. 3: What is your favorite of his books/series? Hard to compare. Emperor's Soul is one of the best novella I have ever read. I love Mistborn Era 1 and I can never forget it the first time I have read it and was stunned by the epigraph revelations. Stormlight Archive is amazing and I suspect it will be one of the best ever once it is done. 4: On a scale of 1-10, 1 being the least, 10 being the greatest, how fanatical would you say you are about Brandon and his writing? I'd say 8. 5: On a scale of 1-10, how fanatical are his fans as a whole? 8.5 6: Any other thoughts you want to include? He is one of the author who is incredibly disciplined, communicates so much with his fans (through his website posts, progress bars and on Reddit) and takes a break from writing by writing something else! He loves writing and I'm proud to be his fan.
  2. This seems really important and significant Uh..oh. I don't feel good about this. Possible foreshadowing? Come on! Another week to wait
  3. We have a WoB saying that Hoid perpendicularity moves. Source: http://www.theoryland.com/intvsresults.php?kwt='Honor's Perpendicularity'
  4. One of my favorite part in this week. I wonder if Dalinar remembers someone mentioning Adonalsium to him before
  5. Seems relevant to Vasher's past. And I always get a good laugh out of his color metaphors.
  6. Could this be a foreshadowing? I hope so. Can't wait to read Kaladin's chapter next week!
  7. Recently Brandon talked about it in Facebook here. There are some interesting tidbits there and to summarize he says "This character may or may not be a Herald - but the text is going to make the answer clear, and I'm not trying to trick you"
  8. Outstanding work Pagerunner! If you intend to keep adding more WoBs in the future into this excel sheet, it will be easier for you to visit https://www.reddit.com/u/mistborn , go through the comments Brandon made in reverse chronological order and look at the context to determine if you should record it. I shamelessly admit to stalking Brandon on Reddit in this way.
  9. WoB on languages and naming in Roshar (probably mentioned elsewhere before) Source: https://www.reddit.com/r/Fantasy/comments/5t9nyy/iamonce_againa_novelist_named_brandon_sanderson/ddlc64q/
  10. Peter said that the third draft undergoes major changes and goes to the beta readers. Fifth draft goes to the copyeditors. (Source: Reddit)
  11. A couple of WoBs. Sources: https://www.reddit.com/r/Fantasy/comments/5t9nyy/iamonce_againa_novelist_named_brandon_sanderson/deb8vb0/?context=3 and https://www.reddit.com/r/Fantasy/comments/5t9nyy/iamonce_againa_novelist_named_brandon_sanderson/dec8edk/?context=3
  12. I had a WoB from San Francisco signing last year that Braize is 9-centric.
  13. Oops.. I'm not aware that this tidbit is a common knowledge . I'm just so excited when I noticed it for the first time yesterday. Is Galivar Cosmere aware? This is news to me. Can you please share the WoB for this?
  14. This is regarding the statement made by Hoid to Dainar in WoK about Adonalsium. I was going through some of the popular big old threads and found this thread interesting. These comments from users @Devo and @Bloodfalcon seem significant. Hoid definitely is hinting that Adonalsium is an anagram or a combination of words. To make sure I'm not repeating the efforts done by someone, I did a quick internet search about this that revealed this golden post on Reddit (full credit to /u/eMeLDi). Behold everyone! Adonalisum = A mind, a soul On a side note, there are many other possible anagrams, some hilarious ones such as Am slain duo, I a damnation soul, On a-dualism, Anal Odiums TL;DR There could be some secret within the word Adonalsium itself. It could be an anagram of "A mind, a soul" From the WoB in the above 17S thread, that says "Everything Hoid says is significant in this context", I think there is some possibility that this theory had merit. Thoughts? Reactions? Would be great to have some input! Thanks.
