      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. I guess I can spill the beans on Herdazians being part Parshendi now that Brandon's revealed it in a signing... he wrote it in my WoR book during the Firefight signing tour but asked me not to talk about it.
  2. Apparently, Wayne's conversation with Hoid was potentially important in some way. Asked what it was about (expecting a silly fluff response) and got RAFO'd.
  3. Got a WoB from Brandon about this at the SF signing. They were a soother and a rioter. Good theory though!
  4. Elend for sure. I even once took a book onto the dance floor and started reading it.
  5. Alright, missed connections time! I was next to you two in the signing line and we talked cosmere questions, Magic: the Gathering, and Mistborn RPG. I lent you my copy of the core rulebook and you lent me a copy of Firefight for small periods of time within the line. I had 7 books with me. Unfortunately, my friend was in a hurry to make his date so we had to rush out of there, but it would be cool to get your names! I know you guys are on 17th shard, so here's hoping you see this.
  6. I honestly thought this thread was about the Radiants' high power level, and how "broken" they were compared to, say, an allomancer....
  7. "She is royalty, and I have played the churl. My boots! My boots! Must I now give up my boots?"
  8. Guys, there are ten books in this series. Shallan and Adolin JUST got together in book two. I would be very surprised if that remained the same for the rest of the ride. And, given the hints dropped in this book, Kaladin/Shallan is hardly unlikely. Now, how it all shakes up in the end is anyone's guess. But we're so early on, it's impossible to say one way or the other at this point.
  9. Nightblood's cousin? Nightblood itself!
  10. It's not a bad theory, but I have to point out that Steelheart wanting to kill David with his own weapon was something that was previously established as his signature execution technique. David was a loose end from the bank that Steelheart thought he had closed, and the son of the only man to wound him. Him waving his soldiers back, etc. was not especially odd given the context.
  11. I didn't guess he was an Epic, though I did think there was something more going on with the tensors at the point you mentioned -- maybe that the power was "all in the mind", that every human possessed the potential of an Epic and using the tensors allowed you, over time, to access the power without them. I did pick up on Megan being an Epic, though (didn't realize she was Firefight, or even a double agent). Not immediately... but when she died, I immediately remembered the bit from the beginning about how some Epics could reincarnate and knew Brandon wouldn't keep her dead. Especially since her death seemed too perfectly tailored to drive home that she COULD NOT HAVE SURVIVED.
  12. The "capital" of the Southern dominance is apparently "Austrex". We know from Sanderson's RAFO of the "if Elendel was named for Elend, who was Lutha?" question that there are potential clues about ancient history (cosmere or merely Scadrial) hiding in the names of at least one Final Empire city. With that in mind, is the name's resemblance to Austre a coincidence, or is there something more going on here? Sorry if this is old.
  13. I hope I win! Any one of these prizes would be great to add to my collection, or to make a great holiday gift for an uninitiated friend! Also, this announcement post is made of win.
