      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’ll sign up as Gliht Bkackn.
  2. @Darkness_ No, you would not be able to change your vote until that player died.
  3. Eh, I’d argue against banning someone for dropping out partway through one game. Maybe have a Mod PM them if they drop out of several games in a row?
  4. Basics: Factions: Roles: This is an idea for a game I might run. All feedback is highly appreciated.
  5. I personally think it's a Shardchain from a dead Radiant.
  6. Hi! Welcome to the Shard! Are you on the Discord server?
  7. Hi! Nice to meet you. What Sanderson books other than the Rithmatist have you read?
  8. @PhineasGage She only used a regrowth fabrial.
  9. Straw: Voting for Devotary of Spontaneity.
  10. Straw: Voting for Crimsn-Wolf.
  11. Hi! I'm not dead! It looks like Phattemer wasn't very popular...
  12. Inspired by the discussion on Discord!
  13. Straw: Voting for Darkness_.
  14. Voting for Haelbarde.
  15. @Bugsy6912 actually, the using anonymous names for roles idea originated in my house doc, but I thought it would be a good idea to make sure the idea was well known, as it seems like it could benefit the village. Also, assuming that there is one Skaa player in every house, except for once house, which would have two Skaa in it. Therefore, if the Skaa distribution is like that, there is a 1/4 chance that everyone in Drake's house is soft-cleared. It also appears that houses are not shown upon death. This furthers my earlier point that we should probably have house representatives. So, now to talk about the benefits of house representatives. First of all, it would allow the suspicions of house members to be shared with the thread. In my opinion, docs provide a useful tool in catching the Skaa. Players in each house can check the behavior of other members of the house, providing a useful data point that furthers the analysis abilities of the village. Also, house representatives would allow us to know the roles of players in a larger version of the anonymous role sharing in docs. This would allow the village to better coordinate use of various roles to take down the Skaa. The above post is over 200 words of strategy/planning. This is my second 200+ word strategy/planning post this cycle.
