      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.

Hello, Midwestern fans of Brandon Sanderson! Will anyone else be attending Minicon in the Minneapolis, MN area on Easter weekend?

 

Hope to see some of you there!

Good! Glad there will be some backup. This will be my fifth con, but my first Sanderson meet. I'm ridiculously excited.

I plan on attending as well. I failed to pre-register, so I figured I'd head over Friday maybe and get tickets for the weekend.

 

Also, I noted that he's going to be at Red Balloon bookstore as well for a reading. Any plans on anyone going to that? I can probably go there and catch what it said, if need be.

Both are on saturday, a day I can't attend, but my friend is going to go. So I got that going for me, which is nice.

Got my con exclusive copy of perfect state. He signed both the front and the back because it has two sides? Actually I think the second signature was because he forgot to add the copy #2 to it. Sooo cool!

He signed both sides of mine, too. I love that he is so willing to sign things for fans.

Just a little guy trying to be happy.

In more specific, it's a sketch I did a while back. He's holding up his own smile. I should probably get an avatar related to Sanderson's work, though.

 

Edit: No longer applies to my current profile pic.

Sorry mods/admins!

While you've committed an unforgivable offense, it is perhaps possible that your offering of WoBs is enough to earn forgiveness. ;)

Did anyone else notice the possible slip up?

 

 


Q:  Does Hoid have a Hemalurgically charged Nicrosil spike?
A:  It's... unlikely.  Hoid would not want to open himself to the influence of other Shards so using Hemalurgy on himself is unlikely.  Although Hemalurgy is the easiest way to get other powers, he'd more likely do things the hard way.

 

 

"Hoid would not want to open himself to the influence of other Shards..."

 

WoB confirms Hoid does not carry any Shards, but was Hoid Adonalsium?

We've known Hoid has never been a Shard already via WoB, if I am not mistaken. It is interesting that he notes other though, implying perhaps he's already influenced by one of them?

Hey guys, good catch. I do not think what you're reading into is actually what Brandon meant. these are mostly from memory and hastily scratched notes so some of my own word choice is in there. I'll edit my original post to remove the "other" so we don't look too much into it.

Thanks for keeping me honest, and sorry for the confusion.

No worries! It's what we're here for. :)
