      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 say that every time, but I think this was the first that I kept myself to 2 with a clarifying follow up.
  2. If you want, you could try watching the live-stream on MBtB’s FB Page.
  3. My wife & I were sitting behind you (maybe a different guy) when you were chatting her up. We were kinda smirking to each other because we legit thought you were asking for their schedule trying to get her digits (or whatever the kids ask for these days)... She is… very attractive.
  4. WoB confirm that the sheath is at least partially metal. My question last night confirms it was specifically prepared but was not Invested at the time of Nightblood’s initial Awakening & it wasn’t part of the original intent. I dont know if that implies Nightblood has been Awakened more than once or Invested more than once or if more than one intent has been placed upon it.
  5. For those that may not have heard it, Brandon is in town until Tuesday. He’s doing stuff tomorrow with the LDS Church. Monday he’s recording an episode of Writing Excuses at NASA. Then flies out for a Tuesday tour stop? It was hard to hear what his sister was telling the guy asking, but then again that’s how eavesdropping goes!!
  6. Words of Brandon: (paraphrased until transcriptions) Elantris says the Shaod often comes at night. Does it always come at night? No. Was Nightblood’s Sheath present at its Awakening and is it part of the Intent. No. I mean, it may have been there and prepared for its use, but it is not part of the first Awakening or the Intent. So at some point we may learn how it learned to stop with the sheath? I... The sheath is specially made and is special but it was not part of the Investiture, the Command, or the Intent. Good questions.
  7. Whoa, Argent, hold it. Don't confuse have not with cannot. It's subtle shades like this that can make all the difference in the worlds.
  8. At the Houston Signing, Brandon said he's in talks for a "side-sequel" series in an alternate Universe/timeline.
  9. Genius! Next time, I'm going to stand there and every time someone says they have no questions, I'll throw on my best Herdazian accent and say, "Gancho, what my cousin here means is he would like to defer his turn to me. Now a Realmatic puzzler I've been stewing on is…"
  10. And I thought I was pushing it with 6 questions! Good questions and thanks for bringing them here!!
  11. Ack. I'm on mobile and accidentally down voted @vineyarddawg when I meant to up vote! Sorry!
  12. I know! At the Houston QA he said everyone is bugging him for Rithmatist 2, because they've been waiting for the longest. I hollered out, "Elantris 2!?!" Several others smiled at me and snickered. Only been 10 years.
  13. Not 2 more years. Summer 17 would be 1year 3 months to 1 year 6months more. Sanderson puts out more books than any similar author. Titan Arum, Brandon didn't rule out fossil fuels in future books.
