      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. If your book is missing pages, exchange it at a bookstore for free. You shouldn't even need the receipt, but it helps. It's a defective book and will not be worth money in the future. 1. Fecundity is correct. It's talking about growing plants. 2. It should be revelry. 3. It's correct here. The name of it is the Rhythm of the Lost. We might fix this someday. Thanks. We need to fix this. 1. It's correct as-is. 2. This one was caught and reported already. We will fix it. We will fix it. Yeah...we need to fix it. There's an error here for sure. Also, on Twitter someone pointed out this error on page 84:
  2. IMPORTANT NOTE for UK ebook readers (white cover): A new ebook version was uploaded by Gollancz as of at latest November 22. If you see an error in your ebook, be sure to download the latest version and check it to see if it's still there. On Kindle, you can force-update your book by going to the Manage Your Content and Devices page on Amazon.
  3. Wow, wow, that is a big problem. Is that the US or UK version?
  4. I can't find a mention of midpeace in chapter 45. Oh, you mean Words of Radiance. Yeah, we just need to change Words of Radiance. This one is not supposed to be mirrored "properly." I don't know what you mean. Could you be more specific? Ah, I misread. Still, I assume this is Khriss's error. I'll talk to Brandon.
  5. Kaladin and Shallan rode the storm from the Shattered Plains to get to Thaylenah.
  6. Mmmm. It does look like something funky is going on. I'll bring this to Isaac's attention.
  7. I assume this is either Khriss's error or an error in Arcanum Unbounded. The prose in this chapter is purposely opaque. This does refer to the sending as what failed. Yeah, this is an error. Wow, very nice catch. We'll fix it. Radiant is the type of person to think about interrogating people thoroughly. Shallan slips in and out of the personas without meaning to. It means unperturbed. We had a lot of discussions about this wording, but this is the way Brandon uses it and I'm fine with that. I also find it a mischaracterization when people say the old meaning and the new meaning are completely opposite. Nonplussed does not mean surprised in the old meaning, it means confused. Confused and bothered are not synonyms. Yeah, it's no problem here, though it's not strictly accurate. This is the correct use of quotation marks in English. When a speaker's dialogue stretches across multiple paragraphs without interruption, there are quotation marks at the beginning of the paragraph but not the end, until the dialogue is finished.
  8. Both are grammatical and have different meanings. What's printed there is the meaning Brandon wanted. "he would have expected her to be"
  9. "wanted into this room" is the same thing as "wanted to get into this room." So there's no error.
  10. Yes, we need to fix this. Thanks. I need to ask Brandon about this.
  11. Looks like an error. "in vision" is not an error. So please stop talking about it. This phrasing seems to be a bit more common among the LDS population, but I can still find plenty of well-written modern sources from writers of other religions who use it. And in that chapter 1 scene it clearly says that they admit a storm appeared in the east, not in Azir and Thaylenah. That's really all there is to it. Please don't clutter this thread with arguments. One person reports an error. Someone responds. The first person rebuts if they want to. MAYBE one more response after that. Then no one responds anymore, please. You don't need to convince each other until the other person is no longer wrong. Just report errors and let me decide. Thanks!
  12. Hmmmmmmmm. I think this is probably an error. I'll have to figure out the best solution and ask Brandon.
  13. This is a Cosmere term. Stormlightning is correct.
  14. Okay, so you're saying your ereader doesn't translate "&" to an ampersand in the mouseover text? It looks correct in iBooks, so it's probably just Google Play displaying it that way.
  15. This is a type of vocabulary used in prayer-like speech. ALSO: We know that the Voidspren in chapter 17 is referred to using the wrong gender. This was fixed in the ebook and audiobook, and will be fixed in reprints.
