      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. I think they replaced his eyes because they were burned out to make the statue of him nicer.
  2. I agree. I think the spren of stones or maybe the spren of Roshar the planet could be the Sibling. I don't believe it's another Shard. Stones are sacred to the shin and gems come from Roshar itself so it would make sense that stones could have a spren and that people have been thinking about them as one entity enough that it's become a cognitive shadow.
  3. I was thinking that the Sibling was the spren of stone and that he/she had made Urithiru. The Shin believe stone is sacred and in Horneaters' mythology introduces the gods of Trees (Cultivation), Waters (Honor - because of storms maybe?) and Mountains so we know stones are important in Roshar. The Sibling slumbering could also explain why Urithiru isn't working properly. If they're tied maybe the Sibling needs to awaken for the tower to work?
  4. Interesting. That could be linked to their screaming when summoned
  5. But we don't see the gem in Shadesmar. So stormlight is the spiritual point?
  6. So are you suggesting that the gem acts as a replacement set of eyes and somehow forms a temporary connection?
  7. Was that Elohkar's spren that he found and bonded?
  8. I edited it. I guess this is what happens when you don't sleep after 23 hours of reading
  9. As we all know "There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead." On the topic of dead spren didn't anyone find it weird that the spren's eyes were scratched out and when you kill someone with a shardblade their eyes burn? Is it the spren imitating what happens to humans in the physical realm o something else? Eyes are windows to the soul after all, so does that mean the line between a spren's spiritual realm is broken?
  10. I don't think Cultivation was exactly hiding herself there, at least not fully. How can a shard hide all of herself in the physical realm? On another note is the nightwatcher what the bondsmiths bond to because she seems a bit too playful.
  11. I thought the revival had already started? Maya gives him her name and when he was in danger it took him 8 heartbeats to summon her. We already know that the 10 heartbeats for summoning makes dead spren live a little but bonded spren don't need that so maybe Maya is now "mostly" dead?
  12. What about the girl's white hair when Shallan is lighweaving the story? Could that mean the humans came from Nalthis and had the royal locks? or maybe the child just grew old during her climb?
  13. I agree. foreshadowing is Brandon's forte. Maybe "the place closest to honor" means his heart or something? He was in love with Cultivation wasn't he?
  14. Soon, I hope?
  15. This actually makes Taylor Swift bearable!
