      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. Humans and Aimians can indeed breed. The Natan and Babatharnam peoples have Aimian blood (presumably Siah Aimian). Source
  2. I may or may not have forgotten Hesina's eye colour. For some reason I thought she was lighteyed.
  3. Seeing the future does nothing unless you have what it takes to react to it and prepare for it.
  4. Why would atium make pewter pointless? Just because you can see the future doesn't mean your body can't use a boost.
  5. I'm guessing the duel with Adolin was the one RShara meant.
  6. He's ta'veren. One result of that is probability getting altered.Similar things happen with Rand and Perrin.
  7. Knives are weapons. Quite effective ones.
  8. I didn't say they didn't fight I said they're not front line warriors. A sword is less suitable for stealth and assassination than knives.
  9. Running out of metals is something any allomancer has to face, it's like running out of ammo. Why glass? It's easy to get, obsidian is less easy. Mistborn are assassins more than warriors on the battlefield, something heavier and larger would probably work against them.
  10. It'll give them independence with their power. Surgebinding seems like an instinctive magic system when it comes to use and learning.
  11. Echolocation would require two steps IMO, one for hearing and the other for producing sound used in echolocation. I think tin steals senses when used hemalurgically but that might be all senses rather than specific ones.
  12. If that were the case those growing vines would become light, emeralds are associated with Truthwatchers.
  13. I think it improves cognition to help the user not smash into walls/react faster but beyond that it doesn't give much of a boost.
