      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.

REPORT: Jordan Landing

3 posts in this topic

Well, looking at the places that Brandon was going on the Way of Kings tour, I saw that the day after the midnight release, he was making an appearance at a Barnes and Noble at Jordan Landing.  For those who don't know, Jordan Landing is a big shopping area in West Jordan, UT, and happens to be about ten minutes from my house.  And, being the lucky guy that I am, I got to go see Brandon two nights in a row!  Awesome.

I arrived at about seven'o'clock, Brandon was running a bit late, which he often does, so I got there first.  The atmosphere wasn't as electric as the midnight release, but neither were the people dead tired either.  Pluses and minuses, I guess.

I managed to snag myself a spot on one of the front rows and sat down to wait.  There was much talk going on in anticipation of the author's arrival.  And then he was there!

After a quick introduction by (who I think was) the store manager.  Brandon thanked us for coming and dove right in, reading the Prelude for the book.  After which Brandon opened up the time for questions.  Unfortunately, I don't have a recording, not being quite as awesome as Pooka in that regard.  But he talked some about the structure of the book, his idea process, and a bit about the WoT.  Then we moved onto the signing.

At the beginning of the night, we had about 200 people, but as time went on folks started to trickle out until about 150 people got to see Brandon.  But there were still enough people that we actually ran out of pre-signed books and had to start handing out numbered sticky notes.

It was about 11 when everyone who had stuck around got their books signed and left.  Those of us who were still there, and a few who had showed up only a little while ago for what was to happen next, went with Brandon to a (sorta) nearby Denny's to play Magic!  People there were myself, fRR, Rubix, Nehex, Swift, and a few others who may or may not be members here. (if you were there and I missed you, let me know!)

Brandon treated us to a late night snack, which was nice, though appetizers are a little greasy when playing card games.  Things went along very nicely, fun conversation, pleasant company, etc, until Cthullu showed up.  Or rather, Brandon owned us with his "Cthullu to the face" Archenemy deck.  Twice.

Here's the group that challenged Brandon.  From the left: Adam, Brandon!, Me!, Logan (the leader of the rebellion against Brandon's oppression, who fought nobly), Josh, and Jessica.

And then we left!  Ta-dah!

I watched the Cthulu to the face! You guys got pwned! Me and FirstRainbowRose laughed at you guys while you were busy losing.

I'm convinced that the only way to beat that deck is to have a dedicated discard deck for one of his opponents.

I've yet to get a chance to test that theory, though.
