      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. At what age does Rock try feeding the kids cremling shell?
  2. Don't look too much into it, Brandon just wanted to show the title of Book 4 in-world, just like the previous three.
  3. It's definitely a little disappointing to see no Cosmere for 2018, but I easily understand the need to get away and take a break. We have been very, very spoiled by Brandon and his ability to write like a machine. (Especially compared to other authors who will remain nameless.) Of course that being said, when I see "I hope to have rock solid outlines for Stormlight 4 and 5 by the end of 2018.," my brain interprets it as, "I will unintentionally write Stormlight 5 at the same time as 4 and you will have them both in back to back years." Because Brandon.
  4. I haven't heard the Wandersail speculation before, so my guess may be way off, but if I remember correctly Brandon said one of the impetuses behind Edegdancer was Nale's change in persona between WoR and OB. Without Edgedancer that change would have happened off screen. And seeing that we got a lot more Lift in OB than before, Edgedancer makes even more sense. The one year gap between OB and Book 4 makes the possibilities for a novella nearly endless, but I still think any novella would be to fill in story gaps that occur in the one year in world time spans between books. Biggest thing I can think of that would be weird to have on screen in Book 4 is everyone's reaction to Szeth. (Would basically have to be flashbacks. After a year they'd be more or less accustomed.) So without knowledge of the Wandersail speculation, my guess would be the novella would have to do with Szeth and everyone's reaction to him, and possibly some more Skybreaker information. (I imagine they'll be big players in Book 4 as well.)
  5. And this is how Veil and Radiant become their own beings.
  6. Kaladin could not move. An army of Voidbringers was on their storming doorstep, half of his squires had the grace of a drunken skyeel, and the Assassin in White was waltzing around with a Shardblade that vaporized life. And yet, Kaladin could not move. Lopen had long ago passed out, refusing to surrender until his body quite literally convulsed, stomach spewing three hours worth of contents onto the floor, walls and ceiling. But Rock and that Reshi girl... They just-kept-eating. "Sure," Kaladin whispered to himself, "Bridge 4 needs to let loose, have some fun. So what a storming thin-as-a-branch kid challenges Rock to an eating contest. Let 'em laugh, blow off some steam, then back to work." Eighteen hours later and neither Rock nor Lift showed any signs of slowing. "It's not actually possible Syl," Kaladin said as Rock roared a mighty guffaw, shoving a fist sized cremling-shell and all-into his mouth. "With everything you've seen," Syl responded, finally breaking her gaze from the two combatants. "You really should have learned to not use that word." She of course found the eating contest utterly fascinating. Lift paused for a moment as the cremling shell cracked and shattered in Rock's mouth, then thrust her tiny arms at a steaming bowl of stew five times the size of her head. Stormlight somehow streaming from her, the girl slurped down the entire bowl's contents without pause, Stormlight healing her tongue and throat from the burns. "This is insane," Kaladin said. "I'm putting a stop to it." The glare Syl gave him would have made Odium pause. "Do you want a mutiny? Cause that's how you get a mutiny." Kaladin threw up his hands and collapsed into a chair. He glanced over to a tall, stout dark skinned man who had watched the battle unfold with as rapt attention as Syl. "Bet the Heralds never had to deal with this," Kaladin said. "No," the man said with a smile, "We most certainly did not."
  7. This is perfect. And with all the insanity that was happening in Part 5, I can totally see Dalinar just giving an 'ah, screw it, sure' type shrug. The only other thing I can think of at the moment is just about everyone else reacting to Szeth. Once Navani was convinced Szeth wasn't about to go on another murder spree, I can easily see her marching over and pummeling him until forcibly separated. Kaladin and Szeth I envision being comprised of few words, but relatively quick understanding. Jasnah and Szeth I have no storming idea. (Can I study you? Or, can I study your spren? Or, if you let anything happen to my uncle I will turn you to stone then walk all over you.)
  8. Adolin Radiants via reviving Maya confirmed.
  9. In regards to 1, I assumed Shallan's mental 'descent' in this book was a direct result of her oath/truth at the end of WoR. I loved that Brandon didn't gloss over that and that it played a huge role in OB. I may be wrong, but that's the impression I got. Either way, I thought the switching personalities, especially as they started to meld, was fascinating to read. 3- While I love how in depth Brandon has gone into the broken aspect of his characters, I love that Adolin is both power-free and more (seemingly) stable then the rest. Plus in general seems happier, for lack of a better term. He's a great foil for the rest of the main cast. A couple more 'Adolin's' would not be amiss, but between Syl, Bridge 4 and Lift (to a degree, at least what has appeared on screen so far,) we have a fair amount of those.
  10. Cosmere spoilers
  11. Leeds, England I believe.
  12. If I could give you a Shard, I would. Wasn't my WoB, but from reddit the couple who received it went as Elend and Vin.
  13. You have given me hope, thank you.
  14. Horrible news Sharders. Per reddit, Hoid loves bacon. Therefor Lift does not. Ergo, we have the first ever black mark against the most Awesome of all awesome characters. I feel so betrayed. (Though in retrospect, this is probably what cracked Lift's Spiritweb, a lack of love for Bacon.)
  15. Ishar was the one who originally put the restrictions/oaths on the Nahel Bond, right? Dalinar being a Bondsmith, could he have unknowingly altered the Bondsmith oaths? (Perhaps more feasible in current Roshar because Honor is dead.) Would explain part of the Stormfather's surprise.
