      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. Based on a speed of 13% in 5 days, he should be done in 40 days or so. That would put the release date in mid-December. My theory is that it's some sort of Christmas surprise.
  2. What is the name of your childhood pet? Who was your first teacher? Mother's maiden name? Any other common answers to password recovery questions you'd like to add? Seriously, are tacos a sandwich? What happens when buttered toast is strapped to the back of a cat and dropped? Favorite ways to avoid a shark attack?
  3. He's a short-sighted, emotional, self-conscious idiot desperate for his family's approval. But so is every teenager I know. I think he tries to be a hero. He's just really, really bad at it. Sure, he's made mistakes. A lot. And gotten people killed. But he's never killed anyone himself, only allowed it to happen through his incompetence. He tries to help others, but sometimes his self-preservation instincts distract him. Also, if it's any excuse, he had a lousy childhood, is ravaged by the Dark Talent and his life got flipped turned upside down by the Librarians.
  4. *Curtain rises, dramatic piano intro, spotlight falls on* Kelsier, Ham and Breeze skipping down the street singing 'We Go Together' (Like rama lama lama ka dinga da dinga dong). Some finger snapping and a West Side Story-esque fight scene later and the Lord Ruler is dead, which transitions into a heartfelt rendition of 'Ding-Dong the Witch is Dead' for the finale. Or if you wanted to be more true to the book, combine the 'Work Song' (Les Miz) with Kelsier singing a poignant 'Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story' (Hamilton).
  5. INTJ for me. I get a kick out of the fact that the first three 'famous people like you' shows up as Stalin, Hitler and Professor Moriarty.
  6. Kelsier. Burning duralumin and pewter, he'd have a fire in seconds. Who's more likely to binge-watch Game of Thrones, Scribbler or Sazed?
  7. Steelheart: Firefight: Calamity:
  8. Elantris and Mistborn
  9. Anyone else use Sanderson character's names as their passwords?
  10. Warbreaker: Susebron is one of those 'strong but silent' types.
  11. Do Steel Inquisitors have eyebrows?
