      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.

I might be able to. I'm not certain, because I've got family coming into town around then, but we'll see.

I'll be there! And possibly in costume. It should look awesome.

 

And I went to something similar to this about 2 years ago- there was a pretty big turnout for all of the authors, so there should be a good number total there.

I'll be there! I've got loads of questions to ask him--most revolving around the Reod Elantrians. They interest me a lot.

I'm going. Nothing in the 'verse or the Cosmere could stop me!

Ooooh, would you mind sharing your list.

 

Also minor nit-pick but "Reod Elantrian" is not actually a canon term, the Reod was a singular event not an affliction.

Yep. Can you spike Elantrian-ness? Can you spike Elantrian-ness out of a Reod Elantrian? Can Reod Elantrians be felt by BioChromatic Lifesense? What would a Shardblade do to a Reod Elantrian? Can emotional allomancy affect them? How easy is it to pull metal through their bodies? 

 

I know, but it's easier to say "Reod Elantrian" than it is to say "Zombie Elantrians after the Reod happened but before a certain spoiler-y event"

Do you mean the shades? If you do, I actually haven't read sfsitfoh, (it's the only published thing of his I haven't read, actually...) so I probably won't ask that. Sorry!

Here are the questions I am going to ask him:

 

Is the worldhopping kandra MeLaan?

 

Is the worldhopping kandra disguised as a human woman?

 

I think I could ask one more without being annoying.  Any requests?

Another kandra-worldhopper-related question might be "has the kandra worldhopper ever spoken a line of dialogue in a book not set on Scadrial?"

If anyone's looking for me, I *should* be wearing a Szeth shirt (if I can find it), and will probably be close to Brandon with a recorder. I'm excited!

I would be interested in finding out whether Roshar was inhabited before the arrival of The Three, and if so - whether we've seen (the descendents of) those inhabitants in the published books.

How much of Hoid would a Kandra have to eat to be able to replicate him?

What would happen if we smashed Shards together in a Large Hadron Collider? ;) (Or just large amounts of Investiture, I suppose) ((Maybe even Spren? O.o)

Most all of him, though perhaps none of him if the kandra could get his hands on a duplicate set of bones/fake-bones. From this WoB it seems that there might not be any need to actually have eaten a person to mimic them, so long as you have other means to know/duplicate their appearance.

Wow! That question about Nightblood's sheath is AMAZING. And the question about Reod Elantrians and Shardblades is SUPER AMAZING.

Thanks! I was honestly a little bit surprised that no one had asked that yet. And what interested me was that Reod Elantrians aren't like Drabs in that they don't have innate investiture, but are halfway through a transformation, and so are flickering between alive and dead.

I got my first RAFO card today! (and I'll probably get more) I'm not sure whether I should laugh or cry. Probably both.

By the way, I'm pretty sure Newan was right behind me the whole time. Sorry I was too shy to say anything at the time.  :ph34r:  :mellow:

I asked if Kelsier chose not to move on after he died or if he did want to move on but couldn't for some reason.  I kind of expected the RAFO but it was worth a shot.
