      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. CONGRATS ON ART COLUMN’S GRAND LAUNCH! Thanks to @Chaos for letting us do this! Thanks to @Jazzy-Kandra for putting out such a great article!
  2. I would choose Lightweaving, both Yolish and Rosharan style! I’m particularly fond of illusory magic in the cosmere XD
  3. I’m kind of in this club... I read Alloy of Law before Well of Ascension and Hero of Ages due to some strange reasons and that was just... a bit confusing Fortunately it didn’t do much harm.
  4. From the album SA General Art

    It’s been four years and I drew the crew again! This took me a whole week to finish, but worth it! From left to right (post-WoR settings): Navani (with fabrials), Jasnah (with Ivory), Dalinar (with the Stormfather), Szeth (with Nightblood), Shallan (with Pattern), Kaladin (with Syl), Renarin, Lift (with Wyndle), Adolin and Elhokar. (There are also several arms belonging to some random characters in Dalinar’s army.) Group high five: Let’s save Roshar! (They are standing in a sunlight-lit room in Urithiru.) Full-sized piece on DeviantART: http://fav.me/dboywc5 Close view: Bonus: You can see my progress (I hope!) during these years: (Seems like they were done by two different people…)
  5. Ha, the Chinese translation of Mistborn is exactly the same as the German one, meaning Die Kinder des Nebels: 迷雾之子, The Mist's Children (Sons) /The Children (Sons) of Mist It is also interesting that Elend and Straff are actually German words. A very bad Chinese translation worth mentioning: The Worldhopper Felt from Mistborn series. His name is translated into some like "soft skin/fell" (柔皮), which bemused me a lot.
  6. @Extesian Thanks so much for the decipher! Unseriously, So Shallan goes to Scadrial and finds Wax's gun
  7. Perhaps I'm alone, but The Emperor's Soul is my top anticipation, since there are so many artistic and philosophical aspects to explore, which I really can't resist I'm also dying to see any forms of Stormlight adaptation, though it might be harder to be done right. Wax and Wayne as TV series would be awesome.
  8. From the album Cosmere Crossover

    Alternative Kelsier punching Hoid scene (based on this tumblr meme) (Also in Sanderson Memes thread) Reactions by @Kandra-in-disguise
  9. So glad to see WoK annotations finally come online! I've been waiting for this for sooo long! 2003 version Double Eye seems like a more traditional chart of elemental magic. The glyphs are intriguing. Reminds me of Arabic script somehow?
  10. Alternative Kelsier punching Hoid scene (based on this meme):
  11. Deep-fried cremlings (Also wants to try anything cooked by Kiin.)
  12. Definitely Silverlight novella (with some awesome Arcanists, perhaps) But if Brandon settles on the Cosmere, everything will be fine! (Though I do want to know more about Threnody.)
  13. I haven't met any Sanderson haters in my life, but they exist online. There's a user who's got quite "infamous" among the fandom here, due to their horribly subjective and negative ratings and reviews on a site which is the analogue of Goodreads, like, they just want to criticize Brandon's books out of no reason and sometimes there're even terrible personal attacks, which really piss me off. Since there're not many people rating Brandon's books here, their bad ratings just influence the overall look, and make people wonder if Brandon is a bad writer. That's just too bad, because they would rate *every book* Brandon writes and give one stars. Why would they do this? We believe the real reason is that they are a hardcore fan of Jordan's WoT books and dislike Brandon's take to a degree that they must hate every Sanderson book. This really drives us mad but it's just weird, because why would they bother continuing reading cosmere and others? Just take criticizing those books as a hobby, and praising the original WoT books at the same time? Wow, that even earns our "respect". Happy reading those books that you just can't put up with! About the personal attack part: I strongly disapprove of this. Brandon doesn't deserve this. For this I could fight them everytime. Heck, I finally found an outlet for my fury, but not quite
  14. From the album Cosmere Crossover

    This is already in Sanderson Memes thread, though it would be nice to put it here, too. Mistborn/Rick and Morty crossover prompted by @Extesian , a parody of Rick's enthusiasm over Szechuan dipping sauce (from S03 E01). In this, Hoid is desiring Scadrian spicy instant noodles instead. The instant noodles stuff comes from this WoB:
  15. This is prompted by @Extesian in Discord chat. A Mistborn/Rick and Morty crossover suggested by @Overstorm. If you watched S03 E01, you would know what it means Also, the instant noodles stuff comes from this WoB: Enjoy
