      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.

Kaladin leaped from a hilltop, preserving Stormlight by Lashing himself upward just enough to give him some lift.

Any one else get the pun?

Well DAMNATION. 

Renarin has a shardblade and is using surges. A sylblade? Syl wants to watch in the bedroom.... 

Voidbringers are still being mysterious. Also given the childhood thing it still sounds like jasnah. Also, a windrunner symbol ON sylblade? Interesting.

It's really nice to read of an uplifted Kaladin, but honestly it's hard to imagine that will last too long. Also, the dialogue between Kaladin and Syl is so hilarious, probably the highlight of the chapter for me.

I pause mid reading to say canon Sylblade description! 

Spoiler

Syl formed there by unspoken command, taking the shape of a Shardblade: a sleek, beautiful sword with the symbol of the Windrunners prominent on the center, with lines sweeping off it toward the hilt—grooves in the metal that looked like flowing tresses of hair.

But it's not a shardblade: it's a sylblade.

Also I had finished before I posted. Speed reading at work B)

Lots of questions, as usual.

Dalinar, you poor, old fool. What is Mr. T going to do to you now? 

Was Dalinar referencing Szeth's old honorblade when he mentioned a workaround for not having the Dour Idiot around to fly to oathgates and open them from the other side? 

And the part about Voidbringer negotiations with the Azish is really fascinating. Specifically the idea that (see bold below)

Quote

 

“ ‘Fortunately,’ ” came the reply, “ ‘our city stands, and the enemy is not actively attacking any longer. We are negotiating with the hostiles.’ ”

“Negotiating?” Dalinar said, shocked. He turned to Teshav, who shook her head in wonder.

“Please clarify, Your Majesty,” Navani said. “The Voidbringers are willing to negotiate with you?”

“ ‘Yes,’ ” came the reply. “ ‘We are exchanging contracts. They have very detailed demands, with outrageous stipulations. We hope that we can forestall armed conflict in order to gather ourselves and fortify the city.’ ”

“They can write?” Navani pressed. “The Voidbringers themselves are sending you contracts?”

“ ‘The average parshman cannot write, so far as we can tell,’ ” the reply came. “ ‘But some are different—stronger, with strange powers. They do not speak like the others.’ ”

“Your Majesty,” Dalinar said, stepping up to the spanreed writing table, speaking more urgently—as if the emperor and his ministers could hear his passion through the written word. “I need to talk to you directly. I can come myself, through the portal we wrote of earlier. We must get it working again.

 

”I wonder, is this just stormform or one of the other Unmade-associated forms (Decayform, Smokeform, Nightform) mentioned in the WoR epigraphs?

The part about Adolin feeling a "pulse of Radiance" and seeing himself perfected is by far the strongest evidence I've seen so far that he'll become a KR. I know some people may think that's just Renarin using regrowth, but we never had any indication that the people Lift healed felt anything remotely similar. 

Quote

A pulse of Radiance washed through Adolin, and for an instant he saw himself perfected. A version of himself that was somehow complete and whole, the man he could be.

I wasn't a huge fan of Adolin becoming a KR himself, as I thought that would make the entire Kholin family too conveniently central in the future of Roshar. But alas. 

Finally, the fact that some Parshendi/voidbringers are negotiating, while others raided supplies, and others stole ships, makes me think that at least some of the Unmade are already leading their own separate factions and telling them exactly what to do. Not looking great for team Honor/anti-Rayse so far lol.

I'm sure that he was. This passage seems to directly imply it

Spoiler

A troubling problem, but one that Dalinar thought he might have an answer to. There was a weapon that he’d decided to keep hidden for now. It might work as well as a Radiant’s Shardblade in opening the Oathgates— and might let someone reach Thaylen City by flight.
