      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.

What if Dalinar becomes...

6 posts in this topic

To Honor what Sazed is to Harmony?

what if having bonded with what is left of the Almighty and then uniting them alll reconstitutes Honor.  Was honor hiding this  whole time and not really dead? (Hearts of men). 

What if IHonor knew it would be defeated by Odiom and chose a strategic retreat? What if this was the plan? What if odium is trapped because of something Honor did that was part of the retreat?

 

Taravangian is trying to unite them without honor(his methods and tactics). Dalinar is doing it right. That will matter in the end.  

 

Hope that makes sense  I am sure this has been brought up before, but needed to write it down  

Need to go read Oathbringer....

It's not that easy, because Honor is shattered.

But yeah, probably a good idea to read Oathbringer first. It's about Dalinar, after all.

ummm... Honor is dead. He has been shattered. With Preservation, Preservation was not actually killed. His power was taken back up and was not destroyed. The Stormfather isn't exactly Honor, just a cognitive shadow. I mean... Sanderson said that there is a way to undo shattering (right? I heard that somewhere) So perhaps. But as it is, with his power being dispelled, Dalinar can't quite become his vessel.

Yeah, I couldn't talk about this without talking about Oathbringer. Here are my (very spoilery) thoughts on the matter.

Also, Brandon has indeed said that there is a way to undo shattering.

Thanks for responding without Oathbringer spoilers.  Excited to read it   

Good to know about the words of Brandon

So, what exactly does it take to become a vessel of a shard ala Sazed? Is there criteria.?

So far, there are theories about reconstructing shards, but other than that, you have to have a connection to a vessel-less shard (ergo one where the vessel is dead) that also hasn't developed sapience, then absorb it.
