      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. Brandon has stated this on numerous occasions, yes. Earth, or any versions of earth, do not exist in the cosmere.
  2. I'm always around but the alleys have always been a free place, we don't really have leadership.
  3. If there was enough activity I'm happy to keep it open but it's been a while since it's really been active. Happy to do collab posts with any characters if needed.
  4. I try to be pretty reactive in my writing so not sure how good a job I can do without other player input but I'll try to get something up for Salem and maybe a few of my other characters. Might do a few scenarios for it if I can get into the rhythm again. EDIT: Just finished the final Corvallis post, I'll probably structure most of mine with a similar format, summary and rough drafts of what I had planned then a final viewpoint leading up to/at/after the cities destruction. Currently planning: Salem (Mostly Soulcaster focused post about the city) PP/Saccharine - As my first character I feel I should wrap up their story. Impact/MV - Probably the one I had planned the most for so I'll get something up at least Cornucopia - Working off of Comatoses wrap up post I'll wrap up Cornucopias story and her part in the fall of Corvallis. If anyone is interested in what happened to any of my other characters let me know and I'll try to get something up.
  5. See I've heard about the a bomb thing before and I find it an odd topic, once your body is completely disintegrated there's no point in putting additional energy in, sure an atom bomb could disintegrate several million people but on the scale of a single person disintegration is disintegration, doesn't matter how large the blast is. Plus you also have to sacrifice an insanely large chunk of land for a long period of time just to kill one person. I also think people significantly underestimate compounding strength, given the speeds that Miles heals at he has to be tapping thousands if not millions of times of healing factor most of the time, broken bones heal over a period of months, Miles heals them in less than a second (2.6 million seconds in a month, give or take) without worrying in any way that he's significantly depleted his reserves. Teleport them into the earths core, or even just the mantle, no escape and they will die eventually.
  6. The odds for being a Twinborn without having a known Terris ancestor are very, very low. Additionally if he was he would have found out pretty much the first time he touched Atium, Feruchemists are a lot easier to detect than Allomancers. Almost every way to slow down or stop aging is easier than compounding Atium, Atium is a godmetal, which is itself rare, but also requires you to have access to two separate, rare genetic abilities. All Elantrians have extended lifespans, Awakeners just need a certain number of Breath, even using Allomancy alone you can extend your life with time dilation. Other than all of that, the only known, reasonable sized amount of Atium suitable for compounding is in Marsh's hands.
  7. Whoever wants to, or I'll pick one if the mood takes me. The presentation in that scene featured all the Epics that are participating today so it doesn't necessarily mean he'll be fighting first.
  8. There's usually a couple in tandem, but today's brackets will be sequential so no.
  9. Savannah reopened his eyes, adjusting to the sudden shift in consciousness as he was transported, once again, to the arena of Salem. This time he was, thankfully, not greeted by pink fairy floss or ice creams. Instead he stood in the center of an almost identical replica of the roman Colosseum, among a few dozen other challengers. On all sides an explosive cheering could be heard, there were even more people present now than there had been during his last fight, were those sins of Salem really such a big deal? He'd heard some rumors since the announcement but for even the regular humans to turn up in such numbers, these must have been some real crowd-pleasing fights. A sudden burst of light appeared in front of him, almost blinding in its radiance. Amid this pillar of light, three figures stood proudly, raising their hands towards the stands. The cheering amongst the stands intensified even further, hoarse shouting and stamping of feet could be heard as the light dimmed steadily, making the three figures more recognizable. Speak of the devil, or rather devils. The sins of Salem I presume? To confirm his suspicions, one of the announcers nearby announced the three figures as Wrath, Envy and Greed. Feeling an ominous pressure in the air, Savannah turned to both sides, observing his fellow competitors. Glares that were intense enough to be almost palpable came from every side, all directed towards the three Epics that had been placed in the spotlight. "Hi!" A small, high pitched voice said, a young girl noticing Savannahs glance and returning it with a wave. He feebly waved back, a slight expression of concern on his face at such a small child being here. Then he saw that small child swinging a large scythe that must have easily weighed twice as much as her entire body. Even as an Epic, I don't know if I'll ever be entirely comfortable with a post-Calamity society. Savannah mused wryly.
  10. Yeah particularly given that it's an entirely different country it would make sense that some names were duplicated. Can do, will try to get it up today.

  12. Todays tournament will be more serious than usual so there won't be any joke arenas or non-combat contests. If you have any you want to try let me know but if you were looking for ideas: Lava-pit: Two contestants start on rocky platforms in the middle of a giant lake of lava, there are numerous small islands that are within jumping distance and a few larger platforms where both contestants could maneuver a bit. Flying forbidden. Ocean battle: Contestants are all given the ability to breathe underwater, the entire arena is submerged in cold ocean water, sharks patrol the perimeter and may enter the arena itself to interfere in the fight if things get boring. Paradox chamber: An arena of distorted dimensions, full of pathways that have different gravities, doors that teleport you, and infinite staircases. Contestants must find a way to reach each other to do battle and if they can fully master the dimensions may be able to spring surprise attacks. Apocalyptic wastes: Contestants start on a barren field, wreckages of buildings and abnormally large robots litter the landscape. Sci-fi like weapons can be found spread around the arena, with effects ranging from simple lasers, to portal guns, to arc casters that can fling lightning towards opponents. Made the Epic a few days ago and I just got an idea for the personality so yeah pretty much

  14. The powers are but when those powers are sufficiently distanced from the Epic the weakness no longer affects them (eg. Nightwielder can block out the sun from the sky, despite the sun being essentially a giant ball of his weakness) I'd be inclined to say that gifting is likewise distanced from the Epic themselves, and gifted people don't have rendings or Epic madness so they're at least partially different from a proxy for the Epic. Either way though, as I mentioned for Necropathy at least it is highly unlikely that someone else would trigger it.
  15. Instant and complete annihilation would do it but that's about it, so long as there's a functional cell Necropathy himself could regen, and if he gifted enough of his healing away then an Immortal could too. I'm not sure if we ever found out what would happen to someone who was gifted with a power was confronted with a weakness. I'd be inclined to say it would fall under the umbrella of large power usage and be unaffected by weaknesses but that's up to discussion. Necropathy's weakness would be kind of hard to trigger in any of the Immortals anyway though so not sure it will come up, but for the hypothetical I'm going to say that no it won't affect them. They start whenever someone wants them to, I can do a Soulcaster opening if needed but I don't mind people jumping right into it. Fight order can be pretty vague since they shouldn't impact each other much, but generally it's first come first serve. There will be some exceptions later in the game-day but I'll let people know when that's about to happen.
