      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. My casting choice for Hoid would be Jonathon Young (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0949727/), mainly because I saw him play two Shakespearean roles last summer (Hamlet and Feste in Twelfth Night, the court jester) and he did a fantastic job switching between a super-witty performance as Feste and the much more serious (though still charmingly funny) performance as Hamlet. I think he would do a fantastic job as someone mysterious as Hoid tends to be. Plus he has a bit of a weird and striking face and is young enough to play the role across a number of films (or a Stormlight Archive TV series).
  2. At the signing today he said we would be seeing Firefight (Reckoners #2), then Rithmatist #2, and then Stormlight #3. He didn't specifically mention the Legion sequel but maybe it will show up sometime earlier.
  3. During the same reply Brandon said that Zahel had been on the planet for a very long time, probably a lot longer then most of the people who currently know him assume.
  4. My question from the signing line (there's about 5 hours of audio, so I imagine it will take her awhile to get it all transcribed): How long has Zahel been slumming it on Roshar? For quite a long time, on this planet he can get something quite easily that is much harder to get where he came from. Fun signing, but the line was super long.
  5. A couple of thoughts on this based on Words of Radiance and the speed of highstorms. First, WoR establishes that: and (both quotes from chapter 87, hardcover page 1049–1050). I can't find the exact quote, but somewhere in the book I remember it saying that a highstorm takes about a day to travel across the continent of Roshar. Assuming that the storm travels at roughly the same speed on its way around the planet, it seems like this gives us a (very) rough idea of how big the continent is in relation to the whole planet.
