      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.

Well, that was interesting. Who killed that man? Do you think it was a revenge killing? Why did Renarin freak out when Odium's champion was described? Any ideas, theorizers?

I must admit I'm a little disappointed that Adolin got assigned to investigate his own murder.  I do like that someone is copycatting him.  And I really want want to know what exactly our Truthwatcher is seeing...

 

I'm glad Kaladin grew up, a bit, belatedly.

 

And I love that the scribe was trying to ask Shallan to be her Wonder Woman!

 

And the Bondsmith can draw on others to use their powers in new ways?  Interesting.

Who else would Dalinar assign? It makes perfect sense.

My bet is that Renarin has possibly seen something either Odium's champion, or at least the who/what the Unmade are

Also, high five for spren having multiple genders

I need to find the few WoB we have on Tezim - he's clearly going to be a very important character/potential antagonist. Is there any way he's actually a sliver of Honor like he claims? (At least that's how I interpreted "Aspect of the Almighty") 

also, love that pretty much everyone's criticisms of shallan being mute to this point are entirely thrown out the window. Cmon y'all, stop doubting BS lol.

I know, I know.  It makes sense.  Dalinar even runs the logic that all other options died in the avalanche last book.  But it feels a little obvious.  But I see Adolin and Shallan working on this together.

Yeah, I love that some Spren have four genders.  Like the Listeners have four genders.  Which makes me wonder about Listener specific spren.

 

Also, assigning a gender to your belongings can affect the gender of its spren, love this.

The way I read about the old spren having 4 genders, is that it is related to the listeners and their multiple genders. Humans weren't around yet to think in those terms so the listeners would have formed the old spren into 4. Any other thoughts about this :)

:edit: stark beat me to it

Words cannot express how appreciative I am for having 3 Kaladin chapters in a row. I was expecting to have to wait weeks for the resolution to the end of chapter 6!

Only read the first paragraph. Still loving Kaladin's punch.

I hope Kaladin's kid brother doesn't turn out to be Odium's Champion.

I have a feeling that Shallan's going to be the first one to find out Adolin's secret. I knew he wouldn't be able to hide it very well, but, wow. He sucks at lying.

As a side note, Kaladin being badass was a welcome turn of events. The part with Oroden made me a tad emotional, surprisingly. 

And it was nice to hear from Shal again. I wonder why Renarin had such a reaction to Dalinar's mention of Odium's champion?

Hm. We shall see.

Kaladin does not regress after punching Roshone, I was very afraid that we would have another book of Kaladin doing the wrong thing.

Dalinar pulls on other radiants...

Also, pretty much confirms something strange is going on with Renarin.

Hey could we have a mod combine this thread with patterns? They were first, loath as I am to admit it.

Gotta love the mixed family responses there... awe spren from one... and not so much from the other...  I note that while we met his little brother, we didn't meet Mara... 

I'm curious what Renarin has "seen" that caused his reaction...  Hopefully it's not a realization that he's going to be the champion...

Adolin's reaction made Shallan highly suspicious... Adolin doesn't have a good poker face...

Okay, some quick thoughts...

Kaladin's chapter was the longest. I'm glad he took the initial approach he did, calming things down before summoning the Shardblade - that would have been my suggestion. Glad to see that Laral is independent and capable. I don't think Kaladin is yet over his issues with lighteyes. As expected, there was some spanreeds and it looks like Kaladin is going to do some scouting.

Yay Shallan. She speaks! As expected, she's not over her mother's death but doesn't blame Pattern. In an interesting counterpart to Adolin, she's trying hard to distract herself from thinking about it. She is publicly claiming to be an Elsecaller so that people don't know she's a Lightweaver and can still trick them. She can spot the patterns in the strata in the walls well enough that she can locate herself based on them, unlike anyone else it seems - I bet this comes up later in an emergency. Looks like we have our first example of what Bondsmiths can do - it seems his ability somehow interacted with Shallan for her to be able to create a projection of the continent. I was very happy to see this since creating Lightweaving maps was something I had thought of. While Shallan demurred from offering advice about countries she barely knew anything about the map projection did light a fire in Dalinar - focus on the Oathgates first.

But oh, there's been another murder and it looks like a copycat of the Sadeas one. Interesting. I wonder who did this and why. Shallan can clearly see that Adolin is behaving unusually, and it looks like Renarin can too. Dalinar puts Adolin in charge of investigating the murders... heh.

It seems like Renarin already knows what's going on with Adolin and Sadeas, and Shallan is absolutely going to find out. The real question is, who is going around murdering troops in the same way Sadeas was killed? Perhaps Ialai is organizing some form of revenge?

Also, where's our buddy Zahel? Still in Kholinar, or...?

Mmmm the plot thickens around Sadeas' murder. Not only is Adolin in charge of finding the murderer and there's a copycat running around, but Renarin clearly knows what's up and Shallan's figuring it out fast. Honestly, I did not see the murder arc going like this at all and I am so PSYCHED! Adolin can't possibly frame someone else for Sadeas' murder and even if he finds the copycat, the Mystery Gang (Shallan + Renarin) know what's up. It'll be a big hit to the Kholin's reputation. ( I'm betting that Ialai is behind the murders, killing her own men to bring House Kholin down.)

Other notes:

  • Laral is a BAMF? Yes please
  • Fingers crossed that Oroden comes back in the later half of the series, maybe as a surgeon in training?
  • I complained last time about the lack of Renarin/Shallan/Knights Radiant stuff, but this chapter was all that I could've asked for. We're already getting hints on the yummy Bondsmith/Truthwatchers info and Shallan's unease about the tower really set the scene. I was reading in my dark room and got a few shivers up my back. 
  • (Although, really, has no one asked Renarin what his powers are? How is he training? Where's Glys? What can he see, with his special eyes? Does he know who the champion is? Has he been sprouting an extra 8 shadows? )
  • This story is progressing fast! Kaladin's already left Hearthstone to track down the parshmen, Adolin's Murder Mystery is heating up fast, and it sounds like Team Kholin will be leaving Urithiru soon to start saving the world. Hopefully we'll get more Knights Radiant info via Shallan sooner rather than later.
