      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'm utterly speechless. My minds is forfeit. How is there still three parts left? HOW IS THERE STILL SEVEN BOOKS LEFT??
  2. My friends. IT IS HERE.

    I love you. You're my people. You're my community. But this is where Extesian, for the first time, really leaves you. I will do a long, slow read, savoring this thing. I shall cast my eyes upon no forum page, no Discord post, no reddit not Twitter, until the last word is read.

    Enjoy your reads Sharders. I will see you all on the other side of this amazing time :)

    1. Tesh

      Tesh

      I'm doing the exact same thing.

    2. Darkness_
    3. Tesh

      @Darkness_ You seem very enthusiastic.

  3. This is excellent Argent. Nicely done. Taught me a few useful things and the examples and links work well.
  4. Peter has just said its probably not until February now.
  5. I think it's a combination on many of those things and his desire to unify but willingness to destroy. But mostly I think it's that he's a Bondsmith, he's the first (new Bondsmith) and he's bonded probably the most powerful spren on Roshar (and that spren is merged with the cognitive shadow of a former Shard). I think Bondsmiths will prove to be extraordinarily powerful. One of them appears to have enslaved a world full of Listeners after all.
  6. I agree and am sure this is the biggest truth she has left. Reminds me of this (though he may not have meant that) But mostly I'd thought the same thing because of Pattern repeatedly saying things like this
  7. Heralds most likely, the changes in them probably classify them as no longer human, like Hoid. My specific guess is Tezim, who may also be a Herald (likely Ishar). Mraize also refers to him as probably not being human or at least not of the local variety iirc. Oh and @The One Who Connects
  8. My link to the hair was a speculative theory on the history of the Iriali and the Long Trail, if anyone's interested.
  9. How does shallan like her meat? Mraized.
  10. I posted this in the wrong forum, so here it is I'd like to step in to raise some toasts here. Quite a few people contributed significant amounts of time to this...masterpiece of Cosmerology. I feel like it's dominated my minimal spare time for a while but I was a later and lesser contributor (and helping was something I was both honored and duty-bound to do given my WoBsession). Sharders we all know and love like Jofwu, Kurkistan, Windrunner, Calderis, Blightsong, Oversleep. Particular praise to Pagerunner and Argent for their outsized contributions. Unsurprisingly Chaos is magnificent, delegating like a demon and pulling endless long nights, working on this thing long, long before I was even a member of this site. (And my involvement with this is recent so forgive me if I've under-credited people). I may have contributed a bit but I'll get so much more out of Arcanum than I could ever give to it. Many of you know my WoBsession and this transforms the ability to gain a black belt in WoBfu. But my endless thanks for truly making this Wonderland of WoBs happen go to two people. Firstly, Mestiv. The Codebringer. He has done so much in making this dream happen. I don't speak code but I understand what he's done is not easy and I know the results are beautiful. He has enabled our addiction. And, this cannot be emphasised enough - he's not even a WoB fiend. He did this for the community, for you. What a guy. But my endless gratitude, admiration and love are for Weiry. the Master of WoBs, a guy I looked up to even before I realized the scope of this and his part in it. He made this happen. Since long before i was a member of this site he plotted and planned, and of course WoBbed. He put in the work. He had the vision. This was his Citizen Kane. For years and years from now, when you can learn the Cosmere more easily, you have Weiry to thank. He's my hero, and he'd better be your storming hero too. So go! WoB like you've never WoBbed before. Browse over seven THOUSAND WoBs, many never before seen, with full sources. If you've ever wondered where that WoB is you swear you remember, it's here. If you've ever wondered about Brandon's intonation in that doubtful WoB, or wanted to hear his hilarious reaction to bizarre theories (e.g. Wayne stole a Returned Horse), the audio snippet awaits. If you're obsessed with a particular topic and want to research it, it's one search away. So go! Enjoy the labor of love of many, inspired by one. Soak it up. So go. Dance with the WoBs.

  12. Both from this year, Leipzig and Warsaw.
  13. And for the record, my shippy friends, I do love you and the diversity of loves for these glorious books is what makes this place so good for so many. I mean, some people haven't spent hundreds of hours this year reading WoBs. Baffling So say we all.
  14. So turns out Intent is not a canon term! Like, Autonomy, Odium etc, a Shard's flayva. Not canon. Nor Mandate. Added to the list. no capitalizing
  15. This review brought a tear to my eye Chaos. For a mathematician you sure have a way with words. You're the [redacted] most [redacted] Tearbringer this [redacted] of the [redacted] [redacted] forum.
