      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. In page 789 of the American Version, Hoid-as-Wit and Shallan are discussing the story of 'The Girl who Looked Up', with Hoid-as-Wit stating that "It's a story from long ago...things were different in that time." However, when Shallan creates the Illusion, he says "...it's not dark enough" (page 790), with the illusion "leaving them standing in the darkness of night, lit only by a frail set of stars." Hoid then goes on to say that people still had to live, even without light, living, farming and eating in the darkness, except for the one girl who wanted to find out the answers about the wall, and eventually climbing the wall to find that on the other side was "God's Light" (page 792), and that she sneaked up to the Light, and she brought it back with her. "To the other side. To the...to the land of shadows..." according to Shallan. This sounds very similar to the story of Khriss in White Sand, the ever inquisitive girl who goes from the Darkside to Dayside in her quest to find the Sand Masters, and to those who have read White Sand Prime, we know that she takes Sand back with her to Darkside at the end of the book. What d'y'all think? Am i clutching at straws here?
  2. I completely agree with the Second Letter being Autonomy - the variety of personas is interesting - but it sounds as if the different personas have differing agendas and opinions, so could they be less collection, more self aware large splinters of Autonomy? Maybe like a Horcrux, becoming less and less like the original.... Where do we get that Uli Da is Ambition? And Harmony's servants - Hoid-Kandra interaction is going to be interesting!
  3. Fellow Sharders, fans, friends! If you have not read about this yet, I urge you to go over to Chaos' post and read about it. This kickstarter campaign, supported by Brandon, is attempting to give TWoK it's own cinematic stylings by creating a soundtrack for the book. As their own page says: This is not just some random group of people who have come together to do a fan-based project. Working with the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, musicians who have worked on Wonder Woman, and some of the composers themselves having worked on monumental films such as 'Fantastic Beasts' - this is something truly unique and truly special. There is currently only SIX days left before this project closes, and they are currently $48,000 short of their target of making this a reality - so I am writing this, as a fan, a backer, as someone who loves Brandon and the Cosmere as much as anyone here, I write this and ask you to pledge whatever you can - to join and support and make this project a reality!

  6. I would like to raise a note of caution when discussing fainlife- and it is because of Edgedancer in AU. Brandon will often edit and adapt elements from older novels, such as taking Decay from 'The Aether of Night' (it is suggested that an Aether is in the Worldhoppers collection in WoR) and turning him into Ruin for 'Mistborn' In Edgedancer, Lift meets Arclo the Dysian Aimian, member of the Sleepless and associate of Axies the Collector. Arclo refers to his 'Hordelings', with the specialisms they possess. Brandon, many years ago, wrote 'Star's End', a hard sci-fi unpublished novel that he is not fond of now, looking back! In this book, there are a race of aliens known simply as 'Climaxi's Horde', which have specialisms, both simple and very specific. To me, it seems clear that Brandon has recycled this idea, and that brings me back to the original point. I am not 100% sure of the canonic status of The Liar of Partinel at the moment, and while it does refer to fainlife within the text, I would probably (and personally) suggest that we treat the reference in AU as the only canonical reference for the moment!
  7. I would argue that K & N looking for talking tools is them hunting for Nightblood or Vasher, as the only talking item we have seen so far is our favourite talking sword
  8. Hoid "being named for a rock" references a previous alias - Topaz. This is also referenced in the Letter or the Second Letter (I forget which)
  9. We could easily argue that Feruchemy as the combined power of Ruin and Preservation is but an example of the power of Adonalsium? Perhaps Investiture on Yolen was different for different people/nations/races - that sDNA is a racial remnant from Yolen - we may see examples of Feruchemy, alongside Lightcasting and Aon based magics - who knows!
  10. Could Hoid be a possessor of Original Feruchemy? Could Hoid be one of the original creators of Feruchemy and Terris itself?
  11. Adonalsium was killed by the Weapon, so I don't think he really wanted the Shattering!
  12. Sorry, yes, my mistake!
  13. Not at all - as far as I am aware, there is no evidence that FotS or Threnody are in the Greater Rosharan System.
  14. Another point - apparently Braize, Ashyn and Roshar are the only Shard planets in the greater Rosharan System, but there are other planets with some sort of sentient life on...
  15. The other guy is called Baon, and he is from Taldain (I was one of the first to make this connection, and got it confirmed in a WoB in my copy of Steelheart)
