      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.

Bleh. I am sick right now, or I would go too. But West Jordan is like 45 minutes away from me, and the kind of sick I am right now is not conducive to being that far away from home for hours on end. If I can find out how much the Dragon's Keep in Orem will be charging for White Sand, I might go to that signing instead since it's much closer. (And I might be feeling better by Wednesday.)

Wasn't sure if we'd make it to this one, but we drove up this morning. Just under 500 km for us, which seems like nothing now. :mellow:

Wow, you guys. I... Feel sort of guilty for not going to all the signings I could in the past. :P I'm also in awe of @Viridian. That's a while to drive!

@Sunbird, hope you feel better soon. Being sick isn't fun at all. 

So, since I don't have a good one, does anybody have a burning question I could ask for them?

Does the voice Raoden hears while in the Shardpool belong to a cognitive shadow?

I asked Brandon this about a year ago and got RAFO'd :( Hopefully now is the time.

Yeah, I actually remember that RAFO. Or at least remember seeing it (again) a few days ago. I just haven't updated my list to exclude that question, or at least note that it has gotten a RAFO in the past.

EDIT: And now it's updated with a couple of clarifications, and a RAFO comment.

You're sweet, @Brightness Enna:) I envy all of you who don't have to travel very far, like an hour or less. There are never signings in southern Utah. But it's fun, really - I love these little road trips. Did you get your wristband yet? 

@Argent, your questions are always so good. We'll probably be able to ask a few of them tonight.

I just got received a phone call from the President, he says you are an absolutely marvelous human being! 

I will say though, the question about the relationship between magic and science is probably crowd-friendly, so if you can - and want to - you could ask it during the general Q&A, assuming there is one.

I've always got more than a few questions for Brandon, but during my most recent reread of SA I'm very curious about Spren. Questions are down below, feel free to ask them.

 

1. Is the Nahel bond basicly just new connections in the spirit web connecting the Sprens web to the human's?
 
2. Is there a physical representation of these new connections?
 
What benefit do Spren get from their symbiotic relationship with greatshells? (Ask if RAFOed) Does this relationship relate to evolution?
 
Bonus tid bit questions:
 
What does the symbol on the book featured on the arcanum inbounds cover mean or represent?
 
Has Khriss or other world hoppers come up with a standard unit of measurement for investiture, and what is it called.

Peter said it was the symbol for the Cosmere. Or are you looking for more information?

Thanks for the info, this makes me think that that book on the cover isn't the Ars Arcanum. I wonder what a book titled 'Cosmere' would contain.

My one real question that I want answered (or at least a comment from Brandon on) has to do with this (from the first page of the second chapter).  What exactly is it supposed to be, 'cause it looks like a relatively advanced piece of technology.

@Viridian yes! I have a wonderful wonderful friend who lives even closer than I do, and he was able to get there exactly at 9 this morning. He now has copy number one and is first in line! Which means I'm second! Hooray! My first signing experience is going well.

Alright, here's my very paraphrased signing report (really not looking forward to the transcription of all my stammering...):

Q: Are the similarities of Dalinar's last vision and Shallan's flashback experience of Middlefest, significant?

A: No.

Q: Zahel calls Renarin "the son of the most powerful human on this—" Does that refer to Dalinar or to his wife?

A: Dalinar

Q: How would he have ended that sentence?

A: "...planet"

Q: Which eye does the Sovereign have spiked? And what does the spike give?

A: The opposite eye that Marsh has spiked. And nothing special. More to come in Secret History 2 and 3.

@Argent's questions:

Q: How did Marsh become regarded as Death in Elendel Basin?

A: Only because he looks scary and has been present at ominous times.

Q: Has Bloody Tan seen the Sovereign?

A: RAFO.

The...opposite eye as Marsh's is spiked. Marsh's other eye spike is fake? Really...He's PUTTING in a fake spike as part of a con, well, at least he didn't have to respike his eye...

Marsh shared...? And that's...

It's the right eye, it says so somewhere in Bands of Mourning (I'll get the page number in a bit), but this is awesome...

[Pfft. Does that mean Hemalurgy is somewhat related to the HLA-blood groups and siblings have a 25% chance of being perfect matches in that area in the physical realm...it's like finding a blood-marrow donor...] xD
