      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.

Read The Lies of Locke Lamora, a beautifully imagined story and world filled with witty theives and daring heists. Trust me, a journey you'll never regret.

PS: I feel like an ad now. :P For the record, I'm not a publisher or something

Seconded

Just put it on hold. 

My WoT is ready. Just in time.

Finished reading Warbreaker earlier today. I loved how much this story was a reversal story. I knew there was something up with the priests but I didn't guess the actual reason for it. I loved seeing all the characters changing by the end of the story (Siri, Vivenna, Susebron, Vasher, Lightsong) and even loved the various Returned. The ending so screams a sequel and with the annotations I hope the sequel comes sooner than later.

Now onto The Knights of Crystallia

Is the wheel of time realy worth my time (pardon my pun)? I mean, I've trid to read the Eye of the World, but the pacing felt a bit slow to me.

Does the pace get better?

Finally, I meet another Gentlemen Bastard fan. The world is a bit lacking on those at the moment...

Any update on when Thorn of Emberlain is scheduled to release, or if Lynch got over his depression?

It is slow at times, but it gets faster-ish. It's a slow series in general, but gets fast at times.

it does...and then it gets worse again.  I don't mind it so much, personally, but a lot of people will tell you that the pace slows down to a crawl somewhere around book 7 and deosnt pick back up until Brandon takes over.  book 10 is pretty much universally considered the worst one, in that nothing much of significance happens during the entire thing(though I personally find books 1 and 2 to be the worst).  so take all that however you will.  my personal advice, if you get through book 3 and stll dont want to continue, then it is definitely not for you.

I’m pretty mad at my brain. My recall is usually pretty great and yet while I’m reading Oath my brain is blanking on way to much so I had to pull out bk 2 and skim the last 100 pgs last night... ugh
