      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.

[SoS Tour] Denver Signing, Oct 6 2015

11 posts in this topic

So Kogiopsis over on tumblr was at this signing and gave this report:

 

 

Questions asked (paraphrased; no video this time):

 

Kayla:  Is the use of the color red before/during bad events a deliberate pattern?

Brandon:  Yes.    ((this is made worse because every personalized book I saw had “hands all red….” written in them.  I AM AFRAID.))

 

Kayla:  Is it possible to use a Steelpush while wearing Shardplate?

After some confusion re: not Pushing on the Plate, but something else:  yes.  And we… think the mass of the plate would be what determined the force needed, not its (much lighter) effective weight to the bearer.

 

Kogi:  Sarene’s eye color?

Brandon:  Email Peter.  (I will actually do it this time!)

 

Kogi:  Anything you can tell us about santhids?

Brandon:  They’re one of a few Rosharan animals with a degree of sentience.  It’s easier on Roshar for this to happen.  (Kayla, to clarify:  Because of Cultivation?  Brandon:  Yes.)

Also, Santhids aren’t based on anything in particular on Earth (sad marine biologist face)

WHAT

 

In regards to the SoS spoiler I really shouldn't have seen, I wonder what that means in regards to that object that caused a certain person to act in an overly odd way

From the list of questions: Is Sazed the only person to hold more than one Shard since Adonalsium shattered?

 

I got the wording a little different - I asked if Sazed is the only one to hold more than one Shard.

 

Brandon answered: “Sazed is the only one to currently hold two Shards.”  After a few seconds, he added, “I’m not going to say he is the only one to ever hold two.” 

 

That’s all he said about it though.

Unfortunately, we don't know if anyone's ever held three or more but less than all 16.

Wait, I don't get the reference to red showing up. Is this a specific thing I've missed?

Questions asked by me (paraphrased, didn't think to take video)

 

Q: Does Khriss have a way of changing her appearance?

A: Yes

 

Q: Have we seen her in any of the books out so far? (realized I worded this poorly for my intention and asked another question before he answered)

 

Q: Is Vathi Khriss?

A: No, someone else. But you'll see Khriss in a soon-to-be-published book.
