      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.

Good job, 17th Sharder! I would order books from his website, but... It's cheaper on Amazon and the experience of getting it directly signed from him is priceless.

Correct me if I'm wrong but can't you still get the hardbound book signed form the Brandon Sanderson store though?

edit: I completely misunderstood your point. Ignore this post.

I hope this mean Axies shows up again in the story, I know Sanderson has said most the interlude characters where just there to show off the world's scope, but Axies with his 'curse' and now his apperent immortality strikes me as perhaps a bit more improtant than just a one off character.

 

He does make at least a brief appearance in WoR.

Nice! Upvote for sure!

Axies was one of my more favorite characters too. I just think he's so unique and could probably provide a lot of answers for us. I was surprised there wasn't much talk about him on here, considering. But there is only so much we learned from his interlude. Definitely hope we see him again.

I updated my first post with the picture of Sanderson's inscription.

 

I'm glad people are finding this bit of information interesting! I thought maybe people may have heard this before (I'm afraid I haven't had as much time as I wish I did to find out what sort of bits of info have come out from WoR readings and the like), I'm happy it appears to be something new.

Oh hey thanks for letting me know! Is there a thread that talks about this in the WoR section that may have more info on the nature of the appearence?

There is a pinned thread at the top that starts with an awesome post created by Windrunner linking various readings.  The one you want is called "Rysn's Interlude", but why stop there? :D

Thank you kindly for pointing me in the right direction, great read and some interesting tidbits on Aimia.

So i wonder if the comment about Axies being immortal due to an interaction of magic applies specifically 'to' Axies, or if being basically immortal a trait all Aimian.

 

I think personally its probably just Axies, since there was a collapse of their island and they are incredibly rare now. Now I can't be sure obviously what Sanderson meant by 'an interaction with the magic.' Maybe its just a weird phrasing choice, maybe he means the Old Magic? Or maybe Voidbinding? People in Roshar do apparently view Aimians as evil and in the interlude reading Axies shows up in they refer to his shadow as a 'Voidbringer Shadow'.

I think it is a result of a spren-bond.  I think his voidshadow is an effect of that bond as well.

Spoilers for WoR:

It would fit with what is implied from the Jasnah prologue. At least one type of Spren seems capable of manipulation someone's shadow.

The Old Magic? That seems very possible.  And that could be where his "Curse of Kind" came from!  He went to the Nightwatcher to get help cataloguing all of the spren.  She gave him something that made him nearly immortal (or whatever phrase meg prefers that means not likely to die of old age for a very long time) and the curse which makes him unlucky so that he doesn't enjoy it too much.  /wild baseless speculation
