      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. @PhineasGage I would be glad if even some of my words find a place in your essay. I'm so happy you found it as a beautiful poetry Honestly I am just obsessed about Shalladin
  2. Oh my God! The latter half of this thread is Gold!! My thoughts about Shallan's character were put to word here precisely. Also that analysis by @PhineasGage was so well done that words spilled out of my hands about the beauty of the chasm sequence. Just wanted to share it with all the S.S Shalladin's crew here Keep up the good work guys. I hope I don't sound like a child with its first toy but the discussions and debates were extra ordinary.
  3. Just to put my two cents on the “triangle”. I just want to say I mean no disrespect meant to any Shadolin/Shalladin/No shippers by my opinion. Being a Shalladin shipper from the beginning I just became catatonic at the cheesy declarations/whatever of love between Adolin and Shallan. That made me think “Let me write my cheesy version of Shalladin and see if I cringe”. So i wrote a short verse describing the qualities of my ship and genuinely found myself shipping it even more. Here it goes… The Bond that is so Torn, The Bond that is so Forlorn, The Bond that was made an Unborn; Nevertheless...... A Bond rivaling a Radiant Morn, A Bond revamped from mutual Scorn, A Bond... to coalesce her, a Reborn. I honestly believe that Kaladin can help in healing Shallan if they were just able to communicate a little bit without an active thought to the betrothal in OB. Adolin… he just seems to me the normal guy ( w.r.t other characters ) and the idea of being in love genuinely fascinated him and “Shallan” provided the exact thing. Which he was looking for and the poor guy had no info on the baggage Shallan was carrying, so he was mesmerized with the “Shallan” persona. Shallan… ha! She, to me, is a beautiful mess that i fell for her even more after her dissociation. She had no idea of what that closeting away was doing to her and grasped the first safety anchor that was presented to her. If she gave a smidgen of a chance to Kaladin in OB just as in the chasm, I feel Kaladin would really have helped her face the truths just as he faced his’. Kaladin… What can be said about him that was not said before? He is the perfect protagonist for this series. He valued his relationship with Adolin and honored the betrothal by keeping his ‘silly daydreams’ to himself engaging in a much professional/platonic talk with Shallan. So overall, I am very much disappointed with the conclusion (the choice and the way it was handled) and I do believe Sanderson put and end to the ‘romantic’ part of it as he himself stated that he was satisfied by the way of handling the situation on the beta readers AM(A)A on reddit. So, I just hope that he develops a friendly/professional relationship with Shallan which i will cherish in order to sate my shipping heart. Also, props to @SLNC, @PhineasGage for their Sanderson-y discussions and dissections of the “traingle” which helped me get over the disappointment…. almost.
