      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. Still hoping for a specific citation on this. Really curious about the specifics of how BS answered. In the meantime, I'll look through the readings on YouTube and see what I can find. @Humpty Any hunches on which reading to listen to?
  2. This seems excellent reasoning. Now that the story has progressed to bigger antagonists, Sadeas seems quite anemic. Very solid logic. Now I need to have a new question ready for Mr. Sanderson.
  3. Just re-read the rest of the section. Adolin was distracted by the appearance of the shard blade and disposed of it. No mention at all of his side knife.
  4. Mostly asking if their are Words of Brandon on this one. Going to see him in Boston and want to have my question settled.
  5. Well, this _is_ Brandon Sanderson we're talking about here. With such an excellent, hatable character like Sadeas, it seems worth keeping him around. Where did Adolin's side knife come from? Was it a gift? Could it have been a well-placed Hemalurgic spike? Seems potentially within the realm of easy possibility.
  6. Did a bit of a search for this, but didn't find anything. Do we have WoB on whether Sadeas is dead dead?
  7. At the end of Words of Radiance, it is revealed that Taravangian asked the Nightwatcher for "Capacity." Clearly, Taravangian believes this capacity to be related to his intelligence, given the focus on the Diagram and his daily tests of his intelligence. But there is something else that varies on a daily basis for Taravangian. What if he has it backwards? What if Taravangian's curse was his intelligence and his boon was the expanded capacity for compassion? What if what was needed to save humankind was a Compassion Diagram instead? (My first post. Apologies if this has been mentioned before. I didn't see it when searching.)
