      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. Unless there is a WoB that I haven't seen, at this point we have no idea what happened to/with Shallan pre-killing her mother that would have broken her to the point of being able to bond Pattern, that is still RAFO. I have an inkling of some hints in OB, but I can't for the life of me remember them right now, and they weren't definitive even if they were hints. Just more statements of something dark before the mother's death.
  2. Pretty sure it's quantum entanglement. From a Realmatics perspective... I'd say that though their physical aspect is trapped and split, their cognitive aspect remains one, so it just mirrors actions. The one that confuses me a bit is the inversers like the lifted platform. Not sure how a combined cognitive aspect results in opposite physical effects.
  3. I love this idea... I wondered what could make Odium actually shrink back in fear. It didn't seem like Dalinar uniting Honor for a second could do that... since he already killed Honor once.
  4. I'm in! I would buy a second copy just to put this dust jacket on it!
  5. Well... I guess we'll find out more in like 3 years! Until then or until more WoB come out that bear on the OB Epigraph letters, I think I'm still sold on the "hide & survive" Shard who is based on Divine Wisdom.
  6. Can you link to that WoB please? I want to see wording, as we "know" of a shard that only wants to hide/survive even if we haven't seen them on screen.
  7. Raoden and Sarene was this marriage already arranged sealed when they began to speak via Seon and fall in love? Event though I re-read Elantris this year, I can't remember the order of events here. Dalinar and Evi I'm not sure that I would qualify as what big D felt for Evi as "love"... there are many things that seem to have been there, but i'm just not sure I buy love. Other ones I totally agree with. Arranged marriage in high society being how real it was for our history makes it make sense to me. Plus it's a convenient plot device!
  8. Question for someone getting to a signing: Do burning Allomantic metals pulse to what would be recognizable Listener Rhythms? I.e. does burning pewter pulse to the Rhythm of Resolve? Or Burning Atium to the Rhythm of Destruction? The converse has been answered, that a Bronze burner can hear Rhythms, but I haven't see this quesiton posited yet.
  9. As I understand/read all those sections, Humans were never native to Roshar. They were only ever refugees from a destroyed world who were graciously settled in Shinovar as it is the most hospitable of Roshar locales. They were originally Odium followers who eventually turned to Honor after coming to Roshar.
  10. So... Now that we know that the original Voidbringers were the humans who came to Roshar after Braize was presumably destroyed by their surgebinding... it make me think of this section from tWoK and then also this from OB I'm thinking that we're going to see our Knights Radiant able to perfectly hold in stormlight when they get through their 5th Ideal (if we see any of them get there).
  11. They are resonant stories though. Are the necessarily tied together, no, but I love the similarities we can see in them.
  12. What if the first letter is written by the shard that wants to "hide and survive"? I saw a thread posted earlier from @WeiryWriter that posited that Shard should/would be Wisdom (or some variant of that concept) which I think is a great idea! Why Wisdom as a Shard seems to be the writter of the first OB letter to me: To me, in agreement with @Argent, the letter has a "femnine" sound to it, and Wisdom historically has strong associations with the feminine divine (Sophia, Athena, female personification of wisdom in the hebrew proverbs, and others!) Hiding and Surviving is the wise thing to do... and to do that you need to be the only Shard on a planet! Much of the language in the first letter relates to wisdom or the opposite of that (foolishness) "they were foolish" re: Aona & Skai "chance to be more" - missed (foolishly) opportunity "no good can come" - wise foresight "disappoints me" - other shards make foolish decisions related to interaction "obvious she was going to be a problem" - wisdom can see problems with unchecked Ambition (if you follow that argument, which I do) And to get a little more geeky... wisdom in most RPG's is associated with perceptive/intuitive abilities "i noticed...immediately"/"noticed your many"/"my eyes are not...clouded by..." so yeah... I think the first letter is our "hide/survive" shard Wisdom. Now, how did Hoid find her is a better question to me!
  13. I hope is the Necromancer's Pizza Parlor books he's talked about for a long time
  14. Man, bet Tor won't be happy to hear that! BTW - I LOVE that cover. I think it's better than the US art personally, though the endpapers in the US hardcover are amazing as well... tough.
  15. I put it on my shelf and read the kindle version... you're missing an option!!
