      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. okay that makes sense thanks
  2. he himself states in the books that feruchemy is completely neutral tho
  3. if allomancy is from preservation and hemalurgy is from ruin shouldn't there be some sort of united magic form created from the two sides of the shard merging
  4. if allomancy comes from preservation and hemalurgy comes from ruin where does feruchemy come from ? ps: please ignore if answered in newer books
  5. i dont think elend was burning any other metal because they didn't mention so okay ? lets just agree to disagree i think this thread has been tortuously prolonged enough
  6. Well yes marsh was also burning atium
  7. Funny how you say i am ignoring the text when you yourself dont remember it he only started burning pewter when he was getting tired infact i indulged the idea of him burning metal even tho he only mentioned starting to burn pewter after almost a day of fighting
  8. Not when there is absolutely no danger involved
  9. he had alot of atium tho there was no reason to maximize killing potential
  10. He only mentions he is burning atium at the start of the battle except they specifically mention how atium allows your brain to process information faster
  11. Because atium turns you into a wmd there is no reason to use pewter when you can see the future
  12. your confusing the timeline he started burning pewter at the later stages of the fight because he was getting tired what i meant in that quote is that he had no reason to burn pewter while he still had a lot of atium left
  13. What reason whould aland have to burn pewter while he still had hours worth of atium ?
  14. ok fair enough in that case use obsidian it is sharper then steel only swords and spears are still by far the most popular weapon's take pre lord ruler death luthadel it had lets say about 12,000 soldiers in it total (combining the city guard and the private gaurd of the great houses) at the same time it had maybe about 30 people who can affect steel that means that for the common guard the chances of running into someone who can use his steel against him is four hundred to one it simply docent make statistical sense to use weaker weapon's because of such a absurdly low chance ok and what if the mistborn grabs a battle staff or a dueling cane ? i am not saying dont use silk what i am saying is the smartest thing whould be to use silk as a stand-in for chain mail and wear armor on top you dont know that all that is written is he started relying on pewter when he was getting tired we dont actually know how much steel/iron he used in the fight for all we know he was almost out by the start of the battle
