      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. Thank you everyone for the welcome! And I will try to avoid the cookies
  2. The first time I ever heard of Brandon Sanderson was through my father, who had downloaded a random fantasy novel on his kindle, and told me, "Alena, you have to read this book!" He introduced to me the general idea and theme of it, and I agreed to try it out. My first ever Sanderson novel was Mistborn: The Final Empire, and I immediately fell in love. I was told that "it might be a little slow to start" but I had quickly fallen head over heels for the unique world system, the totally original and fantastic idea of Allomancy, and how he managed to make the characters and world seem real with intriguing politics and in-depth character development. Ever since, I could never put down a Sanderson novel. It awed me how he could turn the whole entire plot of a story by one minuscule detail. His mind and genius are absolutely fantastic, and ever since I learned of the Cosmere idea, I was totally shell-shocked. I am a huge Tolkien fan, and for me, Sanderson is the living representation of him, and I have thoroughly enjoyed his work ever since I picked up Mistborn.
  3. Hi! I'm new here! My name is Alena, and I've been a Sanderson fan for a while now, but have finally managed to become a part of the 17th Shard, and I'm so happy to be here! I've read most of the Cosmere based stories and books (excluding most of those in Arcanum Unbounded, and The Bands Of Mourning, which I have yet to read). I am extremely new to the Cosmere idea, as I just knew of its existence within the last year. I am currently re-reading the Cosmere-based books to study the Cosmere, its history, and its main "players." I am awed by the extensive information and history behind it, and I hope to gain knowledge of the whole picture (or, in our case, what we have of it so far) on this site. Hope to get to know some of you, and I am so excited to begin discussing topics and learning new things!
