      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. Echoing this question. Due to data cap issues, I can't really listen to the 'cast without having the RSS feed to auto-download the episodes.
  2. I wonder if the spiral shape follows the Golden Ratio?
  3. One problem: the Chasm on Sel only appeared 10 years before the events in Elantris. We know that Odium hasn't splintered a shard in several millennia at the time of Stormlight Archive. I'm just not sure that Elantris takes place several millennia before SA.
  4. Hadn't seen that WoB before. Looks like I'm a little late to the game. This hint was in the second Cosmere story released. What other subtle clues have we missed? Now that we know more about things, it should be easier to find them. This particular one just happened to jump out at me tonight, especially since it was a Hoid chapter.
  5. We have seen prophecies altered for nefarious reasons before. Hopefully Big T is careful when interpreting and acting in them.
  6. These are not the eyes you're looking for...
  7. I thought about adding some stickiness to my post, but thought I would leave that to better men.
  8. I'm working on my latest reread of Mistborn, and something caught my eye. In TFE, the chapter 19 has this line, referring to Kwann: This also happens to be the chapter where Kelsier meets Hoid. I'm sure that's a coincidence, but it makes you think. Does anyone else think that Kwann may have been learning about the Cognitive Realm? If so, it makes you wonder just how much Cosmere awareness Scadrial lost after the Ascension. What other small hints have people noticed before the in-your-face explanations in The Emperor's Soul and WoR?
  9. That is fine, Branch Kaellok. No one starts out as Stick. It is only through hardship, time, and stormy weather that any can become Stick.
  10. I work in a call center, so... Annoyancespren, frustrationspren, depressionspren, angerspren, murderousspren... I could probably think of others, but my phone's auto correct doesn't like adding spren to the end of words.
  11. Huh. Seems like my memory is an unreliable narrator... Thanks for the link!
  12. So... Did anyone ever get confirmation on this, or is it still a theory? As far as I knew, the chasm was just a natural disaster. I thought I had seen Brandon say something like that, but that could be me making up memories to fit my preconceived notions.
  13. I've been toying with the idea of compiling every Hoid quote in one place, but I haven't had the time. I think that would be a good place to start.
  14. Also, we know of at least one type of being that is able to change their appearance (granted, with some effort on their part). It could be possible that somehow, he is unintentionally supressing his eye color, or having it supressed from the outside. I'm with you on not knowing enough to leap to saying that we know how and what would affect the Heralds.
  15. Just started TFE again, made it to page two, and already, an obligator is doing this. Why would you point this out to me? I would have never noticed, but nooooo you pointed it out and now I'll notice it everywhere!! But really, the ones that you mentioned aren't that odd for a lot of characters to do. A ton of people raise an eyebrow when something strikes their curiosity. Almost everyone blushes when they get embarassed. Snorting is a bit odd, I'll admit. Same with the "Child" thing, but that's probably more of a cultural thing. I wouldn't be surprised if it happened a lot in our own history, but just fell out of favor as our culture changed over the years.
