      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. Kalad. Kalad's Phantom's. The Arda and the Ardentia. It's really starting to sound like there's a cultural root between Roshar and Nalthis. Or Brandon let some things seep in, but typically that hasn't been the case.
  2. Cue best old Han Solo voice(which is also exactly how Teft sounds). "That's not how the bond works." She's over 4500 years old. The things that defined her thousands of years ago don't apply at all. I'm not the same person I was 5 years ago. Or last year. Let alone having 4500 years of guilt, self loathing, and mental illness to grapple with. And the bond doesn't fix anything. Teft, Kal, and Shallan show that with incredible clarity.
  3. That's a decent point. And I'm sure the Dawncities predate the radiants, but their size seems beyond would have been needed unless the first Desolation really broke a more advanced society. Especially given the oathgates and their connections to the cities/Urithiru. It feels like they were part of the creation of the Dawncities as massive Stormfortresses.
  4. It doesn't have to. I'd actually originally thought Stonewards would be the ones doing the building, but Willshapers appear to be associated with building instead. It's quite feasible both were involved.
  5. Hear me out on this. Willshapers are associated with building. Cymatics creates the shapes of the great cities in sand. Willshapers loosen up a material, making it liquid. Liquid that would be shaped by vibrations in the same ways and patterns. Willshapers build freaking cities.
  6. That sounds less fun than Szeth having the Nightblood. We've already seen a curmudgeonly old warrior with Nightblood. We don't need all the dialogue to be "Shut up Nightblood". I much prefer the Szeth/Nightblood interaction. (From a practical perspective you could be right, but I feel like Dalinar lacks the conflict to even want to hold Nightblood. He'd probably find the sword repulsive.)
  7. passionspren are different from Passion Spren. We haven't seen a Spren directly for Odium's shardic nature yet. We should in theory see one about 1/3 of the way around the list from Honor and Cultivation Spren.
  8. I suspect that Lightspren(a thing that makes little sense) are actually Passion Spren. The fact that Timbre can pulse to the Rhythms is quite suggestive. And Spren associated with Odium/Passion who aren't Voidspren might want to camouflage/obfuscate their true nature. But yes Timbre is not Eshonai.
  9. I honestly think stuff in line with Trans Siberian Orchestra would work pretty well. Things like Freedom Call and Dragonforce that use a lot of Fantasy Gibberish lyrics. Nightwish's Fantasmic feels right to me with the Flute Solo as well. Two Steps from Hell has a good chunk of applicable classicalish stuff.
  10. Cremlings seem more like Hermit Crabs and the like(small crustaceans) than insects. They don't seem to be six legged/have 3 body parts like would be necessary for insects.
  11. Edgedancer. Listening to those who are ignored. Remembering the forgotten. Super speed and healing. All things I like. All things I try to do.
  12. She's the only main female PoV. In order to keep the series inviting for readers who prefer female PoV's(a good chunk of readers as a whole) she needs to have a major part. Especially given the distance that has to be kept from Jasnah in order to keep the right perceptions of her strength and the way Vorin society sidelines a lot of women. Kal has had two books where he took largely center stage and Dalinar still had way more time than her because it is his book. (Ignoring the flashbacks is a pointless metric.) Why is this a problem to you? Or even noteworthy? You're basically just complaining she got more screen time than the person who up till now has had by far the most screen time. Kaladin.
  13. I suspect that Shallan and Renarin will both be instrumental in bringing Maya back. Shallan's drawings have helped people bring themselves back up(related likely to the spiritual "perfect self") and Adolin saw something similar when Renarin healed him.
  14. So... Who's going to work out conjoined vibrational gem phones? I would guess any major changes will happen in the gap between books 5 and 6.
