      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. I also think it’s either Firstborn or Perfect State.
  2. I can’t shake the mental image of Brandon and Peter reading this thread and laughing until they can’t see straight. That said, the fanfic drabble about Kaladin being named Highprince Sadeas looks exactly like something Brandon would write.
  3. I think the Nahel bond is deeper and more complex than Ishar allowed it to be, and that there are actually ten Oaths that a a Radiant can swear to bond their spren. The numerology of Honor on Roshar makes me think that there are things about Nahel bonds that were suppressed because of the higher powers they granted, and that this suppression was effected by making everyone think that there are only five Oaths. With Honor shattered now I think we will see the original Nahel bonds return, and see just how powerful a Radiant can become.
  4. I still believe that Rysn will bond the Sibling. It seems like an obvious place for her character to progress, and it would be a new type of character archetype for Brandon to explore.
  5. I have another crackpot theory: Could Bavadin be a Dysian Aimian, or a member of a similar species that distributes its consciousness across multiple organisms? I keep pondering all the WoBs on how weird Bavadin is, and all the on-screen weirdness of the Dysian Aimians, and I keep making this connection between these things. It seems obvious to me...
  6. I have a crackpot theory: Rysn will become the Urithiru Bondsmith, by bonding the Sibling and persuading it to return to Urithiru. Who better to understand the plight of a being trapped inside a physical object that is dependent on others?
  7. During the Salt Lake Comic-Con, Brandon told a forum member that all audio transcriptions have to be checked by Peter so that (a) Brandon’s personal wiki can be updated, (b) things that should not be canonized can be removed so that they are not public, and (c) things that are ambiguous and would cause problems for Brandon later can be clarified and/or reworded.
  8. I wonder if the words “UNITE THEM” are coming from a nascent mind forming from the coalescing of the gloryspren. I’m still leaning towards theory 2 though, and I wonder if any other Bondsmiths that appear on Roshar will be equally capable of this feat or if this is specific to Dalinar.
  9. I watch shows like Ghost Adventures and all I can think about is Realmatic Theory, Connection, Cognitive Shadows and the thinning of the barriers between the Physical and Cognitive Realms.
  10. I was browsing the Stormlight Archive Subreddit and found a very good theory that I want to provide a signal boost for. Link to the theory: The theory posits that the other spren that various characters have seen walking through the highstorms is the Sibling. It suggests that the Stormfather is keeping the Sibling close by within the highstorm to protect it from humans and Odium alike. I think this theory makes a lot of sense, and I’d like to add my own idea to the theory: the Sibling may be sleepwalking in the same manner as Maya, and is following the Stormfather around because of the bond they have with him, much in the same way that Maya followed Adolin around in Shadesmar.
  11. After seeing the Oathgate spren in action, I wonder if the Urithiru Oathgate(s) have their own spren or if they are instead associated with the Sibling. Someone should ask Brandon if the Urithiru Oathgate(s) have their own spren or not.
  12. Right now I’m leaning towards theory number 2. In particular, I think it’s very significant that the spren which flew towards Dalinar as the Perpendicularity formed were gloryspren. I would like to ask Brandon if gloryspren existed on Roshar before Honor was shattered.
  13. There is a gas giant in the Threnodite system named Purity. I just checked the map in Arcanum Unbounded and verified where it was located in the system; it’s close enough to Threnody that it should be visible from that planet.
  14. Purity is the name of a planet in the Threnodite system.
  15. We now know why Brandon gave a WoB that said that Nale was using his original Honorblade, but that there was a “quirk”. But how did Nale gain the ability to form a Nahel bond with a highspren? My guess is that the spiritual damage caused by the abandonment of the Oathpact, combined with the madness of torture over the Desolations, caused the breakage needed for a highspren to be capable of bonding Nale. It raises the question of whether or not the other remaining Heralds could also bind spren of their own Order. It also makes me wonder if they will all be able to dual wield or if some of them will refuse to take back their Honorblade.
