      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. Got it, sorry!
  2. Ah, great to know. Thanks!
  3. So yesterday, the Oathbringer release event had two WoBs posted. Now, it says there are 75...but when I load the page, it's empty. Anyone else getting this? Screenshot attached...
  4. I have never heard someone use that turn of phrase before. "In vision?" Nah, doesn't fit. The full quote from chapter 1: If it hit Azir and Thaylenah at this point, it's already rounded the world once. Why would they assume it wouldn't round the world again, when they've never had a storm do that before? It's already unprecedented.
  5. Ehhh, vision isn't a location. It's an experience. And for the kingdoms, it strikes me as very strange that the direction of them is highlighted, when it's irrelevant/out of place from the origin of the storm. Especially when their experience with highstorms indicates that they don't circle the world at all, but rather die before crossing the whole continent.
  6. Pg. 1138, Renarin says: Should probably be "I saw it in my vision!" or "I saw it in a vision!" Additionally, in chapter 1, Dalinar thinks about how "Monarchs in places like Azir and Thaylenah" mentioned the Everstorm but didn't admit that it would come again...but the Everstorm started east of those, and clearly rounded the world already to get to them. Doesn't really make sense there...
  7. Not a problem! I'm just glad I have a theory-ally haha. The whole thread does have some great points, but I think certain aspects of what's going on with Scadrial point to Autonomy leaving Taldain. EDIT: I actually posted this originally in the Cosmere: Theories group we have going on Facebook, but that was even before AU came out and we knew more about Bavadin.
  8. Wow, this entire thread is awesome! I'm the one who got the WoB that started it off, and I asked it precisely because I've been building this exact theory for a while, but just hadn't gotten all the pieces to satisfy myself. I'm still thoroughly convinced that Trell is Autonomy, and is trying to Invest in Scadrial (hence the presence of trellium).
  9. It's also pretty clear that Cultivation is still on Roshar because Hoid talks about her in WoR, saying that there's only one woman on Roshar who's his age, and that they never got along. He's talking to non-Cosmere-aware characters, so he doesn't say Cultivation outright, but that's clearly whom he's talking about.
  10. Hmmm, no, it was more recent. I've seen those other two before. It was definitely talking about the possibilities being in the hundreds. Unless I just had an extremely vivid dream in the past month and made this up...
  11. Looking for a WoB re: the number of possible metals there are. I seem to recall this coming recently, but can't find on theoryland and my reddit-fu is extremely lacking. I want to say Brandon talks about the possibilities being in the hundreds, due to all the god metals coming into play with alloys and alloys combining between god metals.
  12. Whoa. Huh. I mean, Darkside has more advanced tech, but...this seems like a stretch. And this is waaaaay before Scadrial would be getting to Era 2. Super weird.
  13. Hard disagree. I asked that question, and he understood the context. He absolutely meant that healing the cracks in Kaladin's Spirit Web that allow for the Nahel bond would be healing his depression—and I never mentioned depression. My entire interaction with him was based around Shards healing the cracks that allow Investiture in, and he immediately brought up Kaladin's depression and couched it in the context of his wife's mental illness.
  14. Given the context (I asked if Shards could heal the cracks without mentioning mental disability and Brandon immediately started talking about mental disability), I'd say that's a pretty strong indicator that that's what the cracks are in Kaladin's case.
  15. Brandon himself says it does, so... Right there, Brandon says that Kaladin's cracks are due to his depression.
