      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. Now with introductions out of the way, we delve into the meat of Shardcast: Brandon news, discussion, and theories. This week, we're talking about basic Cosmere stuff. Have you been confused about Hoid or the Shards? Slivers or Splinters? Vases, and splinters of vases? We discuss this and so much more. This is not a drill, this is the real deal. This episode has spoilers on: Pretty much everything (most importantly The Hero of Ages and The Way of Kings, but every cosmere book is touched on here). Topic list: 0:32 - We have a new server! 1:30 - Craftygames update 2:23 - Pat's Fantasy Hotlist Review of Legion 3:15 - Featured Theories: Worldhoppers 4:44 - Intro to the Cosmere 7:00 - The Shards of Adonalsium 7:05 - Adonalsium is a Vase 8:05 - Confirmed that Hoid was there when Adonalsium was Shattered 8:55 - Intents 12:20 - List of Shards 28:45 - There's a Shard that just wants to hide and survive 29:52 - Shardic Future Sight 33:30 - Slivers and Splinters 38:11 - Spren 39:45 - Spren are of Honor, Cultivation, or a combination
  2. Mistborn: Secret History. Also known as, ‘Kelsier Punches Literally All of the Deities.’ Our trip through the Cognitive Realm leads us to some unexpected new acquaintances as we start to leave Scadrial behind… Kelsier makes friends and cons them, because that’s what he does. I go back and forth on how to pronounce the word “Ire” before finally actually figuring it out and we finally figure out what gave Vin the heebie-jeebies before she met with Hoid in Hero of Ages! Unfortunately, I do have a bit of a confession to make. Despite the fact that the recording says that there is an episode after this... that data has unfortunately been lost. I don’t totally know what happened to the recording, but it’s no longer in my files. I am really upset to have lost it, but after thinking it over, I’m not going to leave you guys hanging right here at the end. Tune back next week for a wrap up and to hear my thoughts on the end! And I promise I will make 100% sure my good microphone is actually connected this time. Editing the quality on these past few episodes has been terrible, because it just came from my terrible laptop mic. Horrendous. I’ll do much better.
  3. “He’d saved the boy’s life once, so that would make them even”? Kell, that’s not how saving someone’s life works. You don’t just get like a free pass to murder them whenever you want later! Mistborn: Secret History continues, as we travel through Realms previously unseen. We meet some interesting characters, have a chat with a few old villainous friends, and watch as our intrepid hero makes a very long journey. Meanwhile, I’m having far too much fun soaking in all this new cosmere-y knowledge and trying to figure out what exactly is going on. (For instance, the symbol from Part 2 is in fact the symbol for Kredik Shaw. How did I not recognize that one?) Have fun listening!
  4. This is the greatest thing that has ever been written. This is the greatest thing that has ever been written. In which there is flailing. So much flailing. You might assume, if you have seen my salt about Secret History around, that I do not enjoy the novella. You would be incorrect, as I actually pretty much adore it. Despite the fact that I might have an issue with a thing at the end, I am 100% on board with reading this wonderful romp through the cosmere afterlife. Utterly delighted. This episode comes with warnings for A) Me getting incredibly committed to theories which apparently aren’t actually real (Seriously, how is it not Marsh???) B) My cat being absurdly naughty and loud in the background and C) some issues in microphone quality, oops. My apologies for all three. It’s a wild ride, enjoy!
  5. Cosmere is still number one in my heart, okay? I’ll never leave the cosmere behind. I been in this for six years. We ain’t leavin’ the trenches now! Finally, things start to come together for me theory-wise. I talk myself back into my theory of Telsin’s alignment, which is probably a good thing. However, I also start to “figure out” my theory about who the Sovereign is, and I’m still mad that that theory was wrong because it made so much sense, listen. I will say, for everyone who does know who the Sovereign is, (including me, the present Feather, who is writing this) going back and listening to me trying to figure it out is pretty amusing. In a way that makes me want to punch the real Sovereign in the face because, Harmony’s Forearms, I want to punch him so much. There’s also a ridiculous amount of Dragon Age talk, but hey, that’s all I was doing all day before I started reading, gimme a break. I’d say that I was due for a Dragon Age/Cosmere crossover, but actually… I already wrote one. Ha. Enjoy!
  6. I need this. I need this, okay. Alright. Okay. I haven’t even started reading it yet, I just saw that Wax is… I’m pumped. I’m pumped! The grand finale of Bands of Mourning, everyone! It’s a race to the end as we jump off of the last cliffhanger and tumble all the way through our final installment for this book. Ships, both literal and relational, are sailing and flying and there’s Allomancy and theories and reveals. It’s wild. And then there’s that ending. I’ll refrain from Secret History spoilers here, but I will say I feel a bit vindicated by the vehemence of my reactions to that last line here. The Salt Brigade starts early with this one. No Secret History needed. Whether or not my predictions were correct for this ending (and whether or not certain tables will be flipped and set ablaze) remains to be seen. (Warning that there are Secret History spoilers behind that Salt Brigade link! If you’re listening along as you read BoM, be careful!) We’ll start up fresh with Mistborn: Secret History next week, everyone! As that novella is a much shorter work, there will be three episodes of that! As always, comments and reactions are exceptionally appreciated and warm the depths of my cold dark heart.
  7. I'm feeling it. I'm feeling this theory, guys. It would be so horrible. It would be so awful. It would wreck Wax so bad. And that's exactly why it should happen. Am I a bad person? Yeah. Yeah I am. I'm sorry... But I'm really excited. So, it seems that I missed a week, what with me travelling to meet Brandon and also happening to be rather supreme garbage. So, to make it up to you, TWO EPISODE END OF BOOK EXTRAVAGANZA. We're finishing this book in one long binge of two episodes. Let's do it, right? Anyway, in this episode, we get all the way through to the end. There's plot twists guessed, there's plot twists which throw me to the floor, there's threats to Brandon on behalf of Steris's well-being. And quite a bit of me cackling maniacally as horrible things happen to good characters. I'm entirely too gleeful about terrible things. Am I sorry about it? Probably not. Next week will start Bands of Mourning, which I know you're all excited about me reading, right? Also, hearing poor Past!Feather at the beginning of Episode Eight, talking about getting these episodes out on time. Having recorded them in October. Welp. We're getting them done now. She had too much faith in me. I’m sorry Past!Feather, I will try to live up to your expectations better. So, come back next week and we'll kick off Splintercast Reads The Bands of Mourning... and then on to even more interesting and fascinating things after that!
  8. God bless. Harmony bless. Maker bless. Every... every deity just bless Steris Harms. Let’s just be real right here. Honor? Uh, Endowment? Like, all the Shards just need to like, group together, call a truce real quick, and bless Steris Harms. Kay? There we go. So it is decreed. This episode of Splintercast, Feather discusses RP and how she really ought to get around to joining Mistborn: The Inquisition. Listen, guys. I love RP so much, but I like chat RP. It’s gotta be fast. Instant responses. Wait, you’re here to hear about Bands of Mourning? Oh, okay I guess we can do that too. Cliffhangers continue to be my nemesis, but hey at least we got some fancy party infiltrations and a firefight in a graveyard. Steris is, of course, perfect, like usual. Dalish is cute and then naughty and must be exiled. And I’m upset that we haven’t talked about MeLaan recently. Also a bizarre conversation about my past and future selves, which drifts frighteningly close to Homestuck. Which is ending... today. 4/13. Happy Homestuck Day, everybody. It’s the last true one. Regardless of whether or not you’re Homestuck trash, if you liked this episode, feel free to drop a comment down below! See you next week!
  9. Shut up, Wax. Not everyone has to go out and like, vigilante justice fight crime with their Allomancy. Maybe some people like to juggle, all right? In which my commentary on these chapters contains significantly more jingle bells than one might have expected. What can I say? The kitten wants what the kitten wants. And usually that’s jingly feather toys. Anyway, this week on Splintercast, Feather gets confused about gondolas. Wax continues to be an uptight old man who needs to chill, and Wayne perfectly embodies the struggle of the older generations against all those dang millennials and their cell phones and twitter birds and not immediately payin’ off all their student loans. Good times. Also strange coins arise from strange beggars, and I immediately pick up on the fact that there’s shenanigans going on there. I love it when I pick up on shenanigans. It makes me feel competent. And just when you think you’re safe from me gushing over Steris, I’ll smack you with a hard dose for this week. I also hone in on a cameo from a major character... only to completely be unable to figure out who she is. (Sorry Khriss. I know better now.)
  10. Ha. You're not--You're not gonna follow the rules, Wax. Come on. Let's just go. Let's--Let's just do this. I'm curious, you're curious. Let's go. Out the window with you. Daaaaang, Feather. Back at it again with that Splintercast! Though I guess it probably doesn’t feel like we're "back at it" since Shadows of Self just wrapped up last week. Regardless! Here we go again. Now we're getting into Bands of Mourning and I hope you all are as excited for this as I am. We're in for a wild ride, so strap in. Sorry for audio quality being bad in this episode. Apparently Audacity decided that I wanted to use the crappy laptop microphone to record rather than the spiffy USB microphone that I had plugged in but okay, Audacity, whatever. Hopefully I caught it on the rest of these episodes because honestly, laptop microphone is terrible. Anyway, please enjoy! Leave comments and responses below if you are so inclined!
  11. On this episode, Wax and the crew are deep within their investigation of our mysterious antagonist, and trying to piece together the reasons behind her enigmatic actions. Meanwhile, the police are getting rather tired of putting up with all the Dawnshot’s antics, which honestly, seems pretty valid considering how much trouble he can be. I also happen to have some microphone issues because of course something has to go wrong, huh? Soothing parlors, Faceless Immortals, and belching contests await! Feel free to leave comments and reactions below!
  12. Two weeks, in a row. For reals. We're here. We're discussing lore in Elantris, chapters 4-6. Can we make it interesting when it's all setup? Do you like talking about Jindoeese food? How many cannibal jokes can we make? Will they be better or worse than the meat jokes? Will you imagine a shirtless Hrathen fighting a giant lizard? You be the judge. The answer: we make fun of Mi'ch being really bad at pronouncing Fjordell names. Also, we're pleased to say that Dragonmount.com is back online now. At the time of the recording it wasn't. Good job guys for getting through that attack! You make our server look like a broken dam. Spoilers: Again, there's Elantris spoilers (duh), slight discussion of Emperor's Soul, and some talk of Odium. (Don't Saze me, bro) Fun Facts (that we missed): Per Ashe's line about serving Sarene's family for a couple of centuries, Skai and Aona have been dead for at least two centuries at the beginning of the book According to the annotations, Brandon knows that the dramatic eye lock from chapter two is cliche, but still loves it. The sun rises in the east.
  13. “Whaaaat? I’m so lost. What’s going on? Brandon, you’re yanking me! I’m getting yanked over here!” After a brief break to let everyone gnaw on their new copies of Bands of Mourning for a little while, Splintercast returns to keep going through Shadows of Self! A quick reminder that there are to be no spoilers for Bands of Mourning or Secret history discussed in the comments, even under spoiler tags, until the spoiler ban is lifted. Thank you! We left Wax at a fancy party in the middle of a very interesting conversation, while Wayne and Marasi attempt to lend support. And then a new kind of support comes in, for which I am incredibly excited. Have you guys caught on yet that I love references to the original series? Because I definitely do. Please enjoy, and tell me what you think in the comments down below!
  14. Tomorrow, Shardcast returns, and this time it is live and on video! What could go wrong? Sssh, don't remind us about the terrible Words of Radiance release stream, it will be flawless. The stream will begin 6:00pm Mountain time, which is 5pm Pacific and 8pm Eastern. And if you miss it, it'll be on Youtube immediately! We can't promise it will stay on topic, but we can promise it is at least a shard of a Brandon Sanderson podcast. The Google+ event is here and that should open the Hangout when it becomes available. We should also note that this is the live, unedited version, and there may be some language that will be edited out. We look forward to seeing you!
  15. What indeed! Two things have occurred: 1. Josh has a new job so we have to shift a lot around to reschedule. 2. Google+ Hangouts has truly abysmal video quality, and we are committed to the video podcast of things. Moving away from this requires finding a new streaming site (hopefully with a FAR superior chat), and also getting the broadcast software all set up. This is also taking some time. Long story short, we will return in January for more (and better) Shardcast action. Oh wait, let's be clear: January 2015. It's probably important for me to specify the year so you know it is one of those actual soon things, not the "soon" that corresponds to the movement of glaciers. Sorry about the lack of communication there
  16. We have a treat for you today. Our illustrious and radiant (see what I did there?) Alyx, also known as FeatherWriter, is doing a very special podcast series where she records her live reactions as she reads Words of Radiance for the very first time. There is crying. There is sobbing. Fangirling. Descent into sleep-deprived madness. It's everything you'd ever want from a reaction podcast, and I guarantee 40% more people will fall in love with her than before (in which case, back off.). So how The Splintercast Reads is going to work is that Alyx records her reactions and edits out the silence. If you were wondering how she could go so fast through a chapter, that's because of Hollywood magic. Or at least basic sound editing skills. Same thing. In today's entry--and we will be posting these daily--Alyx finishes Part One and does the second interlude. Since she read the sample chapters and wants these reactions to be of her first reading, she's skipped the samples in this series. But absolutely everything else will be recorded for you to hear, love, and of course, lovingly mock. So, without further adieu, I introduce you to the Splintercast. And where does it start? Well, the infamous chapter 7, of course: (Obviously, this will have spoilers for the chapters that are being discussed!)
  17. In this episode of Splintercast Reads Words of Radiance, there's footwear involved. "Is this a Shattered Plains patrol?" Yes, Alyx, yes it is... Hilarity ensues. There's linguistics, pronunciations, and more! Much stanzas. Very Verses. Wow. This is Splintercast. (Today's Scrounger count: 1. Much surprise.) Discuss this podcast here or in our Splintercast Reads Words of Radiance topic!
  18. Hey guys. Splintercast Reads Words of Radiance is almost over. The last episode will be posted after midnight, so not too far away, then I think Saturday I'll post Alyx's Words of Radiance wrap-up. Given that we are almost done, I want some feedback on how it all works. How did you like Splintercast? What should we change? The most obvious feedback would be "stick with a schedule" and "get them iTunes". The scheduling issues were not ideal, and we're sorry. It was a combination of bad timing on both Alyx and I's part. As for iTunes, I'll work on it after the last Splintercast is up. But other than those, what else? Did you like the episode structure? Would you prefer shorter, more frequent episodes (say, one chapter at a time more often)? We were kind of shooting in the dark here, so I want to know
  19. We're here. The "soon" is now, everyone. You've waited for eons and now Shardcast is at last here! And now, for what you've all been waiting for... ...to hear Kerry, Josh, Eric, and Zach blab about random stuff. Yes, okay, this is a rather jokey, introduction episode to Shardcast. Truly this is the most introductiony podcast there ever was. Hear us talk about the origin of our site name, talking about ourselves, top hats, and most importantly: Vin's Pokemon team. If you think we are kidding, you are sorely mistaken. Here at Shardcast we don't give you the news you need, but the news you deserve.
  20. It's a horrible, horrible thing to keep you waiting, so here's a Splintercast very early Wednesday. In fact, you've waited for this moment since you first heard Alyx's rampant Shallan/Renarin shipping. You've waited as she gets more tired, more emotional, and goes deeper into the depths. Prepare yourself for the breakdown and the rest of the amazing climax. (It happens early in 86, by the way...) The journey ends Friday, and then there will be an extensive, hour long wrap-up podcast. We're almost done with this sequence of Splintercasts. Can you believe it?
  21. We're deep into the climax, so what can I even put in the description that isn't immediately spoilery? This chapter contains one of my favorite lines in the entire book. And Alyx gets emotional--but since when is that new? Such emotion. Much wow. This is Splintercast.
  22. In this episode of Splintercast, Part Four of Words of Radiance really kicks off with something you really didn't expect to happen, and it is wonderful and terrifying.
  23. It's the end of Part Four on Splintercast today, plus the next set of interludes, featuring our favorite nicknamed character, Mr. T (Taravangian). I pity the fool who doesn't listen to this episode right now. What are you, Rocky Balboa and think you can fight Mr. T? No, of course not, so you better listen to Alyx's continued insanity right now. Splintercast will be finished June 16th, and it looks like the schedule will go without a hitch. I hope you've enjoyed these reactions as much as I have, and just wait for Part Five.
  24. Our heroes reach the center of the Plains and confront the Voidbringers today on Splintercast. Tensions ramp. The battle begins. And Kaladin makes a realization that will change everything.
  25. Ladies and gentleman. Boys and girls. Brightlords and brightladies. It is time for Part Five of Words of Radiance, and it's just as wonderful as it sounds. In the immortal words of Samuel L. Jackson: hold onto your butts.
