      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.

Does anyone know if we'll have numbered copies of the book, as usual?

Also, I'm willing to ask Brandon one of your questions.  Just post on this thread and I'll pick one that sounds interesting.  (Last time I asked about what Nightblood was made from.)

Edited to add: I'll probably do a game of Magic before the signing as usual.  (Commander format.)

I'm gonna have to find my way to a signing, soon. When the movies start coming out, it's going to be impossibly crowded.

In the meantime, though, do either of you want to ask for a definition Major Shardworlds, and confirm if Ashyn or Braize meet the criteria? (I'd want to clarify if there are 10 Major Shardworlds, or 10 Major Shard-Systems, some of which have multiple worlds.) I feel that this question fits well with the theme of the collection. Providing, of course, that the Major Shardworlds aren't already denoted in the star chart or elsewhere in the book.

That might be a better question after people have had time to read the new book; maybe for the other signings.

You could ask if Herdazians/Lopen specifically has some knowledge of the religion from Scadrial that centers around the idea of a finite amount of luck. They don't mind if bad things happen because that means they will have good things in their future or something like that. When I was re-reading TWoK/WoR, Kaladin asked Lopen how he stays so happy. Lopen responded with a comment that struck me as suspiciously similar to this religion from Scadrial.

Qustion: How many different types of metal so you need to steal sixteen Feruchemical powers? Because pewter seems to cover Physical (8), brass covers Mental (4) and the remaining four Spiritual powers would be stolen by one of the four spiritual/enhancement metals.

I ask because pewter steals powers outside of its quadrant (iron/steel/tin/pewter) since it can steal Feruchemical gold.

(reference)

Some of the mine, they are not really in RAFO-zone:

Question: Can a feruchemist redeply the Feruchemical charge of his Metalmind ? (this would allow us to know if it's possible to store/tap a specific attribute at the same time)

Question: May a Misting hurt himself burning bad alloy/metal or wrong metal at all ? And He can sense other metals other his own at all?

Question: the People of Roshar thinks Windspren tricks people with sticky objects together. Can they actually do it ? (as a Side question, "Therefore can they use Adesion Surge ?")

We've seen Syl cause things to stick together on numerous occasions.

I second that: is it possible to move the charge between separate metalminds without any power loss?

So can a feruchemist be wearing two different metalminds for the same attribute, and move the charge from one to the other?  Is that your question?  [I'd guess the answer is yes.]

Yes, but Syl is not a windspren (also if their apparence is quite the same), I wanted to know if an actual Windspren (and for extension "lesser spren") may use to certain extent a Surge.

Yes the wording is different but is the "same question"....maybe your is more clear but I think it's better to add "feruchemical Charge" to avoid possible confusion or misunderstunding

Question(s); Can a Shard have more than one godspren level/type/class Splinter and if so, can they exist in two far apart places (different star systems)?

Can a Shard send a significant amount of it's Investiture to another place so that said place becomes Invested?

How long does a Shard's Investiture need to stay on a p!anet for a Shardpool/Perpendicularity to form?

I'm also planning on attending the Provo signing so I can take a question or two with me.

This will be my first signing so I'm beyond excited. Any general advice for a newbie? I've signed up for the line and I'm preordering my book probably tomorrow. Anything I'm missing?

Have fun. Some of my best experiences on signings have been with other fans. Standing in line for a few hours just for a minute or two chat with Brandon is not the best way you can spend your time.

Agreed.

I mean, Argent is kinda weird, but the rest of the fans are pretty cool. ;)

@valerieofavonlea In addition to Argent and Zmann's advice, my suggestion is bring a camera. Chances are there will be at least a few people in costume. :)

Try not to get too flustered if you're a newbie! I've only met Brandon once when he came to Liverpool, and I was a HUGE dork when I did, I couldn't think of anything to ask him besides where he got ideas from, and he was super kind, even saying I looked dapper in my work suit. One exchange went like this.

Me - "Sorry, I'm just nervous."
Brandon - "Don't be, you pay me to be able to work."
Me - "I feel I don't pay you nearly enough."

So yeah xD Just stay cool and enjoy yourself!

And ask as many questions as you can! Like "Can sentient Spren (Or any Spren) be affected by emotional Allomancy?" ^_^

For any sharders who come, we'll (hopefully, if I remember to finish up tomorrow) have a game going in the game room. We'll also have our usual stickers to help identify each other.

Thanks for the advice @Argent @Zmann966 @Nightbird and @Rawrbert! It's much appreciated.

Has this question not been answered? I think I'll take it. :)

Also I would love to get some information on Elend's mother (iirc the only thing we hear about her is that she thinks it's a good idea for a man to wait upon a woman's whims). What would be the best way to phrase a question for that?

What is this with games and stickers? Sorry, I'm new to this signing business.
