      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. Sell. [Correction to one of my previous theories] Zahel dies before SA ends, and in a meaningful way.
  2. Not exactly a tatoo, but close enough not to open a new thread: something I did today and I'm very happy with it. link link
  3. What I did with my nails today. (Yes, in Poland we wear wedding ring on the right hand, the left is for regular rings.) A quick how-to is in description of the other hand photo.

  4. My nails. I was wondering if I should tag this photo as NSFW (because, you know, safehand), but that would probably be a bit too much trolling. (Yes, here in Poland we wear wedding ring on right hand, the left is for regular rings.) If you want to have similar nails: Download the glyphs in svg format from the wiki. Scan your hand (the side with nails) and use this image as a reference to resize the glyphs (I also modified them a bit to fit the nail shape better). Make them black if you don't have a color printer or just want them black. Make a reference image showing which glyph and what color goes on which nail so you won't do any mistakes. I chose to have female Herald glyphs on right hand and male on left, but there are many other options that make sense). For black glyphs on color background: Ensure that you have nail polishes in all relevant colors (some colors can be mixed. Also, I have an irrational hatred for red nail polish, so some colors are off). You can also try color glyphs on white bg if you have a color printer. Paint your nails and let them dry. Do not use too dark colors (as I did for Windrunners and Skybreakers), pastel ones will look better. Print the glyphs. I did it on a regular black laser printer and using some kind of ecological paper I happened to have. The easier the paper soaks the paper the better as long as it doesn't jam your printer. (Print on dry paper, you'll soak it later!). I suppose normal paper would work too. Find some how-to about "newspaper nails" and use it to transfer the glyphs to your nails. I've used rum instead of rubbing alcohol (don't have any of that), lots of soaking and kept the paper on nails for about a minute + pressed for 10 seconds. It worked quite well, but some details didn't transfer and some glyphs (Windrunners!!!) got tilted or shifted. Finished!

  5. Actually… how sure are we that Renarin really is a Truthwatcher? He says so, yeah, and he has some powers, sees the future… since when seeing the future is a KR ability? It seems to belong more to another kind of magic users… And we never see his spren. Or what's in the box.
  6. Just for the Rule of Cool: who would you (most) like to see with our favourite sociopathic Awakened sword in their hands and why? Including the original owner. My personal choice is Lift, because a ) they have kinda similar style of dialogue/humor, b ) she's awesome and c ) it could lead to some Realmatic mess, because of her peculiar abilities. Also, she'll feed him. With food.
  7. It's a Splinter, so I think the answer is "yes".
  8. IIRC there's a WoB that an Honorblade cannot be bonded. Edit: Somewhere in this thread.
  9. Nine secret societies? And nine Heralds not counting Telanel. Coincidence?
  10. I think it may be some spren, maybe the BondsmithSpren (Stormfather + probably Nightwatcher + …). Or the Aimians. Or one of the secret societies. Those 3 options aren't exactly mutually exclusive.
  11. I think Kaladin is too emorionally intense for Shallan, he can remind her of her father too much. Sure, he's not a drunk and he's not a bad person (too much), but he can get really angry and intense, I think he can be possesive too. Shalladin could be a very toxic relationship for both of them IMO. I like her scenes with Adolin, this works pretty well and can get many ups and downs without love triangle issues. KaladinxJasnah FTW. (however, if only Lift was older…)
  12. IIRC WoB says that it would overrite his powers.
  13. ↑ yes.
  14. I was thinking along those lines too. My thoughts: What makes text Ruin-safe? Metal. Why? Because it's holy / a focus / whatever you name it. What is Roshar's equivalent of metal? Gems? IMO it's symmetry. Most of the scripts are symmetrycal: glyphs and women's script, which mr T uses… But that script on the map (people say it's Thaylen, I think it may be the sormwardens' script) is not. I'd love to see a picture of Amaram's notes (the ones Shallan copied from his room BTW in a very similar way to what Sazed did in the something of Seran). If they aren't symmetrical… ^^ As for reusing his ideas – if the magics work in similar ways it would make sense for different Shards to use the same tricks sometimes. I doubt Ruin was the only one to think “hey, I can mass up the writings!”. And if Odium is bound not to do that, we still have Cultivation left.
  15. Personality traits. Not how she feels, but what she does. She is very brave (jumping from the island-thing) and obedient (to her babsk). Seems the right kind of person for a Dustbringer, unless I'm mistaking the orders.
