      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. If I could throw out an oddball recommendation here in between these other fantastic ones, I highly recommend Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei, or The Tatami Galaxy. I loved the weird aesthetics, and the ending and the final message it gave was a great emotional punch to the gut. Er, get ready to read subs very fast though. Other odd shows I've heard about but haven't watched yet are Shin Sekai Yori (From the New World) and Uchouten Kazoku (The Eccentric Family), both high up on my "to watch" list. Anyone watched these two yet?
  2. Awww, it warms the heart to see Mistborn and Stormlight Archive up there. One series I'd recommend that I don't see in that reddit is the Temeraire series, if only because of the dragons haha. And because I dig the old-fashioned, Pride and Prejudice kind of prose, although I'll totally understand if not a lot of people do.
  3. Like others here, I was really disappointed by the Farseer trilogy. I was fascinated by the world and the dynamics, but after a while everything was just such a drag; seriously, could no one else see how goddamn evil Regal was? And don't even get me started on that ending. Another series I couldn't even get through was the Night Angel trilogy. I found the writing just so awful, and starting off the series with a child getting raped just made me close the book and go, "WELL, time to find something else to read!"
  4. ^Shallan's fast transition was the same problem I had with Vin, but I think Shallan might have been more understandable, given her kind of ability? to turn lies or possibilities into truths. Especially since she explicitly used Jasnah as a kind of model, and then people--like Dalinar--started seeing Jasnah in her. Possibly a personality disorder in the future? Just kidding though; I think Shallan already has more than enough to worry about. I'm surprised that a lot of people are really happy about Sadeas' death; I mean, I can understand it, and I'm actually pretty glad about it too, that he won't be a nuisance anymore, but on the other hand I'm really horrified that Adolin did it, after spending a majority of the book being so noble. And that he covered it up so well afterwards; there was something just, worksmanship-wise, so great about how BS made how he covered it up so bland and unordinary. I haven't read Warbreaker yet so I didn't even react to Nightblood showing up, but I'm guessing from all the spazzing that this is a fantastic, amazing thing? When I first read Nightblood's line I heard it in Deadpool/Nolan North's voice, and I wonder how off about that I am.
