      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 get the impression that eye colour is more a quality of Value and not Shade of the colour... if that makes any sense.
  2. No no... No, that’s not me...
  3. Semantics of reincarnation, I think.
  4. Seriously. Have you ever seen the two of us referenced in the same scene?
  5. I was current with Stephen King at 9, Dean Koontz by 10 and Eddings just a few months later. Orson Scott Card and some other random authors tring to find something bigger. Got my hands on the ‘Twins’ books and didn’t really get into them. ‘The Eye of the World’ I got for my 12th birthday, I think, I was an Epic Fantasy addict from that moment forward. I see no reason to age limit books based on a perceived level of difficulty.
  6. I still need to read the E-Book or Printed Version, I guess. I didn’t get the uninterrupted experience I was hoping for with the audio and evidently missed more than I care to.
  7. I have a feeling that something unfortunate is going to happen with/during the wedding. That is why we didn’t see it in this book.
  8. I really like that she consciously recognizes that her personas are coping mechanisms. Even though she is using them to avoid painful memories and situations, she acknowledges, if only to herself, that that is what she is doing.
  9. ‘Gancho, can you stick ME to the wall?’ I guess I took Adhesion as more than manipulating Air Pressure and Vacuum. All manner of random and oddments suddendly become useful. Sticking things together seems sort of pranksterish a’la Syl, but functionally can be rather useful in any number of situations.
  10. This. Muchly.
  11. Personally, I love cliffhangers. I mean REALLY LOVE them. I know, I have a sickness. But a big cliffhanger leaves me excited for what comes next. I guess I don’t mind the wait of 2, 4... ok 8 years is a bit extreme, but the wait between books doesn’t bother me. There is always something else to read. I may have been dissatisfied with other Character Arcs not going a bit farther, but I would have been perfectly content to leave Kaladin in the courtyard staring at Moash’s back.
  12. I feel like I am in the extreme minority here.. NONE of the characters that I have seen in Stormlight are anywhere close to capable of romantics. NONE OF THEM. If there is a Kaladin ‘Love Story’ or if Shallan and Adolin do not have massive failures in the next 2 books I am completely done with the Cosmere. Dalinar/Navani are possible.. POSSIBLE.. exceptions. There are entirely too many introspective problems for every single POV character for romace to happen. I hope that Shallan/Adolin and Dalinar/Navani are the farthest extent of romantic interaction in Arc 1 SA. Romance is a very bad thing for Addicts and people working through Depression. I know this is going to be a very unpopular post, but experience is the worlds best teacher.
  13. I still get chills when I read.. If I must fall, I will rise each time a better man. Powerful.
  14. Sort of like intentionally mispronouncing Chief in order to avoid the new responsibilities?
  15. I would like words. Like, a LOT of words... They should probably say stuff, coherently.. ish.. I'm not even that picky. It could just be a dictionary out of alphabetical order and I would do my best to try and make sense of it. OVER NINE THOUSAND K WORDS!!! Just for part one.
