      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.

Brandon Reads From Skyward (Mystery Project)

11 posts in this topic

Did you know 17th Shard has a YouTube channel? It's true; we've had it for eons and did very little with it. But lo, there will be more video content.

This I didn't expect, though, to actually get a reading from Brandon Sanderson from the Oathbringer Release Party. He revealed that the Mystery Project is in fact Skyward, and read from its prologue today. 

Brandon asked that if you are going to see him on his tour to not watch this, so you can experience it live. Please respect his wishes!

@Chaos Is Skyward Cosmere?

People at the release (I wasn't there) say there was no announcement on the subject.

I doubt it's Cosmere, based on the reading itself. But Chaos is right, Brandon didn't specify.

Also, I just want to say that the whole signing and reading and everything was incredible.

So, I searched Skyward on Brandon's site and found that it was mentioned on State of the Sanderson 2013. At the time, he stated that it was a YA Cosmere novel. Maybe that changed.

Is there a transcription floating around anywhere? I would love to read it.

 

Not yet, if there is, I'll let you know. At least the audio is listenable.

This is clearly cosmere. The Krell are from Trell, and Stupid Raj McCaffrey is hoid.

‘First draft’ ‘Peter hasn’t seen it yet’ - still amazing. Dang it Sanderson, why are you so good at this?

I really hope this is Cosmere

I love fantasy elements, dont get me wrong, but I've been looking forward to the point where there is more of a sci-fi era of the Cosmere rather than just the middle-current ages version
