      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.

Calamity Release Party in Orem

Here's my report:

 

Q: Can you tell us which hemalurgic spike transfers temporal allomancy?

A: No. Well, I could tell you, but I'm not going to. 

 

Mistborn Secret History spoilers:

Q: Are the IRE old enough to have gone through the Reod?

A: They're really old. Really really really really old. *signs book* Really old.

Then, as I walked passed Isaac, he said "They're like this old," said in a stereotypical old grandpa voice, then in a normal voice "It's almost midnight, that's when the voices come out." :P

I also got some questions answered!

 

I've been working on a Cosmere timeline, so I asked some questions trying to pin some details together.This is paraphrased, but there was a recording done of the whole signing that will get transcribed... Soon.

 

Q: How long is a Nalthis year?

A: That's a PAFO. I don't remember off of the top of my head, but there's a limited range of what it could be do to the "Goldilocks" zone. (The zone in which habitable planets can align so it's cool enough for water but not so cold that it's ice).

 

Q: How long ago was the Recreance from modern day or from the Heirocracy? 

A: The Heirocracy is in recent history, the Recreance is in ancient history.

 

Q: Did Vasher visit Roshar before or after the Recreance? I ask because he probably had to have seen a live Shardblade to model Nightblood after, right?

A: Vasher didn't have to have seen a live Shardblade. He could've heard stories and modeled Nightblood after those.

 

A: For the chronology, there is a specific timeline of when the events are, but Karen's the one that's in charge of that.

Ha ha, fixed. I saw the -1 and I was like... this was not something someone did on purpose. ;)

I asked this:

Does the pool in Elantris have anything to do with the Pool that Rock mentions is in his homeland?

A: Look closely at who he says comes through that pool (I took this as a yes, I later found out that my Mom asked him if Hoid travels through the pool, and Brandon said yes, he worldhops through the pool)

Also, I played MTG with Brandon at LTUE (Just sayin')

I've been reluctant to accept the Horneater pools are a Shardpool and/or a Perpendicularity, but this sets it in stone...

I think he's made it pretty clear that it was Hoid coming from that pool...
