      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. Hello, I am new Not sure what to do with this Inexperienced
  2. Hi all, I started reading Sanderson in the summer and I’ve finally gotten around to making an account on 17th Shard, even though I spend way too much time on this website, when I should be doing something more productive like doing my college homework. I started with Mistborn and then Stormlight, so I still have a lot to read, but it should be a great ride. I’m really looking forward to getting my copy of Oathbringer in the mail tomorrow. Funny thing my roommate checked the mail and said there was two packages today. I slightly hoped one would be mine, but then I remembered it was Monday and not Tuesday. Anyway, I’m rioting anticipation for Oathbringer, then subsequently anticipationspren appear around all of us. It’s not like they weren’t there before. I’m just a trouble maker. I should be more helpful and riot patience so we can all last until tomorrow, but hey who wants to be patient? I’m glad to be apart of this crazy community.
  3. Hi, I'm new to the site and am a HUGE fan of the Stormlight Archive. I really liked this site with all of the theories and have wanted to actually find people that like these books as much as me.
  4. I'm really excited to get into the 17th shard.
  5. Hello! So I have started reading Sanderson's book very recently and I am absolutely addicted. So far I have gotten through: Mistorn Trilogy Warbreaker Stormlight Archive 1 and 2. I am about to go shopping for my next Sanderson book and cannot wait. While I am here, do you have any recommendation for my next book, to get a better grasp of the cosmere? I want to theorize but do not want to come across any spoilers yet in case I ruin my next book. Great to be here, I do think I will stick around! Entropy
  6. I have been a fan for almost 2 years now, and I am finally making a profile on here, hopefully keeping it recent. I am very interested in the mistborn magic system, and all the other magic systems for that reason. I am slowly uncovering small things that might have been overlooked in the books, but ill have to see if anyone else picked up on them yet.
  7. Hello! Figured it was time to join the ranks on the 17th Shard. I've read everything in the cosmere, and am working on finishing Arcanum Unbounded right now. Haven't read any of Alcatraz, but I'm not sure if that's part of the continuum. Someone let me know if it is. I'm fascinated by the interconnected nature of the worlds in the cosmere, and their strikingly simple explanations leading into chaotic, beautiful ages of story. Glad to join you on your journeys through this universe. I'll be around.
  8. Hello all, I am a long time lurker first time poster, and I am looking forward to contributing to this community I have read all of Brandon's published Cosmere works and have a few theories boiling in the back of my mind. I was having trouble creating my account (wouldn't send conformation email) and eventually ended up emailing someone higher up at the website so thank you to who ever fixed the issue I was having (still never got the confirmation email, just checked the shard one day and bam my account was there). Anyways, Looking forward to posting! also @Yata has been one of my favorite posters so far, thanks for being such a knowledgeable Cosmere scholar
  9. Hello to everyone in the Sanderson Cosmere! My name is Almira and I became a fan after reading the Wheel of Time books. I moved from WoT to Stormlight Archive. I have been hooked on Sanderson ever since! I saw an advertisement for the 17th shard in the jacket of a Mistborn book (Shadows of Self). Now here I am! A new member on the forum!
  10. Yes, this is not who you are looking for, fellow Sanderfans. But hello, I'm voidyhoid, that person who's obsessed with ALL the Brandon Sanderson books. They're so good that I can't stop rereading them so often. Ah, anyway, I'll be seeing you around a lot now. I've been waiting to join the forums for a long time.
  11. Howdy, folks! Just joining up after hearing Brandon mention the site at a recent signing. I started out in the Fantasy world with C. S. Lewis and the Chronicles of Narnia (in 6th grade), moving on to J. R. R. Tolkien and the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings (high school freshman year), moving then to Terry Brooks and Shannara and Landover (the rest of high school), then to Robert Jordan and the Wheel of Time (senior year of high school, when Crown of Swords came out in paperback, until the end), which naturally introduced me to Brandon's work while I was in college. Now look at me, several years later, with a wonderful, large family, a steady career of a dozen years (seriously--I'm guessing a lot of us here are computer nerds), and even though I've branched out into non-fiction research topics, I still love to come home to some good ol' fantasy to relax at the end of the day. Or any time during the day, like while walking to work, or taking a break from work, or during lunch break at work... Honestly, I'd rather just read all day.
  12. Hey everyone! I've been a fan of Brandon Sanderson for awhile now, and I've read most of his works. I am a huge fan of the Cosmere books! I actually own at least two copies of most of them(an audiobook and phyisical copy). I'm pretty sure I'm the only Cosmere fan within a 50 mile radius, so I joined this site so I can have somewhere to go and chat with fellow Cosmere
  13. Hello, I am new to this wonderful community, though I'm lucky to have a smaller one in my area. I discovered Brandon Sanderson maaaybe a year ago? When my friend recommended Mistborn to me, and since then I've made my way through every book except the Rithmatist, which I own, and Firefight, which I mourn not owning. I look forward to finally meeting people just as interested in these worlds as myself and delving into the world of theory and discussion. Applying my English major to fun instead of work!
  14. Hi eeveryone. I'm Aidulin, and I just read a Brandon Sanderson book for the first time. I'm hooked, I think. The one I read was The Rithmatist, and there's only one so far in that series, so I was wondering which series you guys think I should read next? I know you'll all have ideas, but I want to get to know this fanbase a little better.
  15. Just an introduction to say I exist and that yes I love reading Mr. Sanderson's work. I chose the name Mistwannabeborn as I would love to live in the world of Mistborn and be able to have the powers of a Mistborn! I was introduced to Mr. Sandersons work with the book Steelheart. I was bringing a bunch of boys to a retreat in Ohio and it was a 7 hour drive and I looked on Audible for a young adult novel that would entertain the boys. Wow was I ever exposed to what a story could be! The 7 hours on the way out went in what seemed a flash. Now we had to wait for the retreat to end so we could pack our bags head home and listen to the rest. Suffice it to say we barely completed it in time and the boys loved it. It was the first experience I had with Brandon and not my last. My family listened to the Rithmatist when we went on vacation this past summer and again was not disappointed. I have just completed the first two books of Mistborn and I'm in the middle of the last of the first trilogy now. I am looking forward to delving into the Stormlight Archive series and Firefight next. Keep up the great writing as you have me as a faithful reader from this point on... Hoping to read how others felt about reading the mistborn series and look forward to their thoughts on the series
  16. Hi everyone! I am a somewhat new Brandon Sanderson fan, I have only read "Mistborn" and "The Well of Ascension" and loved them both! I can't wait to move on to The Hero of Ages, but I think I've already decided Sanderson is my favorite author! I have already bought Elantris, and The Way of Kings and will most likely stick to the Cosmere books. And that's another thing that fascinates me about Sanderson, the Cosmere. I can't wait to read more of his books so I can understand it better!
  17. Well hello fellow Roshar...ians? Rosharites?, My name is Hearthebeard and I have just finished Way of Kings and Words of Radiance at a blistering pace, though that is all of Sanderson's work that I have read. I love the mythos of this world, though just from perusing this site, it is evident that much more information about this universe is available in his other books. Which should I read? And in what order? Life before Death, Radiants.
  18. I've come here a few times as a guest, so I figured it was probably time to create an account. I really like the concept of the cosmere, and think it is genius. While I had read Mistborn, Elantris, and Warbreaker previously, it wasn't until recently, when I read the Way of Kings, I found out almost all of Brandon Sanderson's books were connected. Since then, I have hardly read anything not by Sanderson, it has just been too much fun trying to see all the connections. So... Hey all! Great place you've got here!
  19. After lurking around this site for a few months and then having an account for a few weeks, I have finally gotten around to making an introduction thread. Hello all! I'm Power, resident conspiracy theorist and aspiring logical philosopher. I've found this site to be an amazing place to discuss the Cosmere, with an excellent community. Many thanks to those of you who have helped get my theories running!
