      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. These are three different letters, all written to Hoid: This is clearly from a shard who is the only one invested on their planet. This rules out Preservation, Ruin, Cultivation, Honour, Odium, Devotion & Dominion. I think Autonomy is also ruled out as Taldain is not accessible any longer, and thus it is not possible for Hoid to have had many intrustions into Autonomy's domain. Of the shards we know, this could only be Endowment. It could of course, be a hitherto unnamed shard. Brandon has told us that Bavadin/Autonomy likes to create multiple personalities, and have a presence on many worlds. This sounds very similar to what is quoted in the letter. Other sections from the letter that suggest Autonomy: This must be Sazed.
  2. Oh, I agree that it's incredibly unlikely that Shalash = Shashara. I just thought that it's interesting for that connection to be drawn in the book so explicitly.
  3. Who all do we have so far as worldhoppers in this book? Hoid: Nothing to be said here Vasher/Zahel: Nothing new in this book Vivenna/Azure: Really interesting to see how competent Viv has become Riino the Lighthouse keeper: An Elantrian Felt: The spy from Mistborn finally gets a speaking part Nightblood: I wonder if the Fused that he kills are permanently killed... Some talk about Shashara sounding similar to Shalash Anything else I've missed?
  4. Definitely Viv. Given that Vasher has already been in WoR, I can't see this reviewer being so coy about him. Further, I don't expect to see a major use of breath, Lifeless, etc on screen.
  5. Brandon once posted this snippet from Oathbringer Book 2 on Reddit: Now that Lopen has grown back his arm, I'm even more convinced that this is him speaking. Clearly, Kaladin is reunited with Bridge 4 by book 2, otherwise they would not be able to use the surges.
  6. That's a bit disappointing. It looked like a really sneaky easter egg.
  7. 4 of Dalinar's flashbacks from Oathbringer have been released as part of the Unfettered 2 anthology. Is there a place to discuss these chapters?
  8. https://www.reddit.com/r/Stormlight_Archive/comments/5dpic4/oathbringer_spoilers_stormlight_three_update_5/da6f2fo/ Thoughts?
  9. During my latest reread of WoR I noticed a connection between a few existing theories that leads me to believe that we're going to see Nalan chasing down Adolin very soon. Theory 1: Ym is an Edgedancer I'm not sure where I first read this, but there's certainly a lot of evidence for it: Ym uses Progression (Regrowth), so he's either an Edgedancer or a Truthwatcher. He lives up to the second ideal of the Edgedancers, "I will remember those who are forgotten." E.g. him helping out street urchins. His spren looks like what you'd see if you could only see Wyndle's crystals. We see Wyndle through Lift's PoV, and Lift has the special ability to see and interact partly with the cognitive realm, which is why Wyndle looks different from Ym's spren at first glance. His Interlude chapter arch has Vedel twice, the patron of the Edgedancers. (Lift's own chapter has Nalan + Vedel.) Theory 2: Nalan is only going after (proto) Edgedancers We have only seen Nalan try to kill two people, Ym and Lift. The moment you accept that Ym is an Edgedancer, it strongly suggests that Nalan is only going after members of that specific order. Perhaps he thinks their combination of surges is particularly dangerous. Theory 3: Adolin is on his way to being an Edgedancer His shardblade is described as having vines, so used to once belong to an Edgedancer. He is one of the few Shardbearers to talk regularly to his Blade. He lives up to the Edgedancer ideal we know: "I will remember those who are forgotten." e. g. holding on to his mother's locket and remembering her before each fight, and protecting a prostitute who was being bullied in Sadeas's camp. Theory 4: Adolin 'snapped' when killing Sadeas and is now on his way to becoming a surgebinder A few quotes: What does that remind you of? I think there's a strong case that something inside Adolin just broke, and he can now start to instinctively use stormlight, the same way Dalinar or Kaladin did before speaking the first Ideal. Wrap-up So we have a Herald that tries to kill Edgedancers, but makes sure to keep his killing legal, i.e. as 'justice' for some crime that the proto-radiant has committed. And Adolin is a proto-Edgedancer who has just begun to access some of his power, who has just committed a capital crime in Alethakar. (We might think he was justified, but according to the letter of the law, I'm quite sure Adolin was in the wrong) I think that in Oathbringer we're going to see Adolin leave the others for one reason or another, and find Nalan closely on his tail. This should be quite the battle, Herald vs. champion duelist.
  10. I was in the middle of a reread and I caught something i hadn't noticed before: Sounds like Marasi spent quite some time Pulsing...
  11. I meant more that tan doesn't come on a normal dark brown -> grey spectrum.
  12. That's incredibly well spotted! I agree, it doesn't look like standard awakening, as that tends to turn objects grey.
  13. I'd always thought House Venture had just one kandra, Tensoon, though it could just be that Elend isn't fully informed.
  14. Any chance of these events being streamed or posted online otherwise?
  15. There's a street named Kenton Street in Mistborn 1. Make of that what you will.
