      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. Hey there Sanderfans, I just want to let everyone one know that there is a Brandon-themed Humble Bundle available now. It will be running for the next two weeks and features most of Brandon's novellas, a selection of Mistborn Adventure Game sourcebooks, as well as the Graphic Audio editions of Elantris and Warbreaker. Check it out here! The Bundle is broken up into the following tiers: For those who pay $1 or more Firstborn / Defending Elysium Omnibus The Emperor's Soul Legion Legion: Skin Deep Warbreaker Part 1 - Graphic Audio Elantris Part 1 - Graphic Audio Mistborn Adventure Game For those who pay $8 or more Sixth of the Dusk Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell Perfect State Warbreaker Part 2 - Graphic Audio Elantris Part 2 - Graphic Audio Terris: Wrought of Copper - Mistborn Adventure Game For those who pay $15 or more Snapshot Dreamer The Hope of Elantris - Graphic Audio Warbreaker Part 3 - Graphic Audio Elantris Part 3 - Graphic Audio White Sand volume 1 Alloy of Law - Mistborn Adventure Game All told, if you pay $15 you are getting $174 worth of stuff (that's over 90% off). For reference, just one Part of the Graphic Audio adaptations ordinarily costs $14. It is also important to note that The Emperor's Soul, Legion, and Legion: Skin Deep are not available in regions where Gollancz has exclusive distribution rights (pretty much anywhere that used to be part of the British Empire). Also this Humble Bundle is currently (as far as I can tell) the only place to get the solo ebook release of Dreamer and the Graphic Audio edition of The Hope of Elantris. In other news Amazon.com has a listing up for preorder for a solo hardcover release of Edgedancer. Previously, Edgedancer was going to be exclusive to Arcanum Unbounded for five years but it looks like Tor is amending their contract with Brandon in order to give it an individual release in October 2017. Just in time for a re-read before the release of Oathbringer in November! Nauvoo Games, who are making the Reckoners board game, has also posted some pictures on Twitter, from an event they did last month: I do not know for sure if this is the actual art style they are planning for the game, but I really hope it is. I think it captures the feel of the Reckoners trilogy perfectly. I also love that they used the Superman symbol, presumably as the symbol of the Faithful. Unfortunately however, I doubt that will remain in the actual release due to licensing reasons. Especially since the pendant in Abraham's portrait uses a different design for it. Edit: Since the people over at Nauvoo Games are awesome they just shared on Twitter that there will also be minis included in the game and posted a mock-up of a mini for Abraham!
  2. Hello, I'm Matthew Puddles. I hope I've stumbled into the right place. Like many of you, I'm a writer. I discovered Writing Excuses this summer, and have learned so much. As I listened to a season five episode, the team suggested that listeners wanting a writing group should come check the forum here. If there are any writing groups looking for members, I'd like to hear from you. I am writing between 1500 and 2000 words a day right now, and try to do a few critiques each week for other writers on other fantasy forums. They are helpful, but I'd like the chance to work with a regular group. Give me a shot! Thank you, Matt
  3. I included this in the 'Introduction' thread and I thought I'd stick here too in the hopes it might be seen a little quicker. Hello, I'm Matthew Puddles.

  4. Anyone interested in forming an online writing group? It's pretty much based on Brandon's suggestions from his lectures...submit 1,000 words each week and encourage each other to learn and grow in our craft. Ideally, the group would have 4-6 members. If you're interested, please reply to this post! Thanks!

  6. Hello all, I am part of a newly formed/forming Writing group. We have only been doing this for six weeks, and are looking for fellow writers interested in joining. Right now we have four active members, and are looking for a couple few more. We keep in contact via Skype, and are more than critique partners for one another. We give support in writing, we are accountable to one another in writing every day, and also we critique and brainstorm together. We aren't looking for someone professional or established, just others interested in writing and maybe taking it a little bit more serious than they have in the past. Again, I feel it is important to say we aren't just a critique group, but a group of individuals staying in contact and encouraging one another to continue writing every day. We meet once a week on the weekends on Skype. All the meetings are through a voice call, and we try to keep in contact most days via the Skype group chat. We are Always talking about what we are working on, issues we are running into with our writing or life getting in the way of said writing. The only thing expected out of you will be to read and critique others pieces when they submit them to the group, and to write on a regular schedule . We are looking for active writers, not every so often writers. You'll have to be able to attend the voice calls, and be okay with it not being a black tie affair. We are a group of some writers interested in collectively getting better and supporting one another, but we also like to have fun and joke around in our group calls. I'll be honest, if you can't show up to the meetings on Skype then it won't work for you. So much more can be accomplished when we meet and talk in real time instead of through text on a screen. WE are not up tight folks, our meetings are full of off topic randomness too, but it always comes back to writing...eventually. I don't want to give the wrong impression though, we are serious about writing and per suing it, it's just that we enjoy having a good time. All genres are welcome, we aren't picky we just appreciate writers and those who want to keep writing and get better at it. Right now in the group there are three fantasy books people are writing, and one strong theme book based around bending not breaking when adversity strikes. A sense of humor will make it easier in the meetings, we tend to do a split of about 70/30 work to random topics, but I always make sure we don't get too far off course. If you are interested you can shoot me a email at [email protected], or you can hit me up on twitter @Blind_Jhon. I'm on twitter all the time and if you message me on there it's likely I'll reply back within just a min or two. If you shoot me an email it may take a couple hours. I understand that not all people are a fit for one another in a writing group, and that's neither good or bad. Sometimes folks just don't click together. Our group is still new, we don't have any established feel for it, so anyone is welcome. We want to find other serious authors and have a good time writing together. If you are interested we'll exchange Skype names, then talk some and you can find out if you want to commit to the group. Also, I feel I should add something else, as the more research I've done on writing groups the more I run into this. We are not a group which is going to do writing exercises, and assign homework to one another. We are looking for self disciplined folks who want to write, who want to have their stuff critiqued, and want to build relationships with fellow writers. Some groups have weekly assignments, that's not us, we are a group of writers who meet once a week and workshop with a healthy dose of joking around...and I may enjoy a glass of brandy during the process. The goal is to build a long term writing group, where we can build relationships with fellow writers and help one another get better as we all progress as writers. ?Of our four members, three are from the states and one is from the UK; so folks from anywhere are welcome. One other thing I should add, the four of us are adults, all in our twenties, and looking for other adults. I don't mean to come across the wrong way, but after talking about it as a group we wouldn't feel comfortable with minors in the group. This is mainly because we do have a social aspect to the group, and parts of it wouldn't be for a younger audience. We are adults so there is swearing and mature talk, We wouldn't be comfortable editing ourselves, or talking that way in front of someone who isn't also an adult. Looking forward to hearing from anyone who is interested. I'll also be keeping an eye on these forums for replies, feel free to ask any questions.
