      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.

I have been a Sanderson fan for about a year, and love theorizing about the cosmere. This seemed like a good place to do it! I live in Utah and love playing Destiny and DND, as well as obsessively reading and rereading books to find the most obscure hints and references.

P.S. What do all of these abbreviations that I keep seeing mean? I keep seeing things like WoB and TWoK. If someone could tell me that would be great!

So WoB stands for Word of Brandon and is something we kind of obsess on around here. They are things that Brandon has said in signings or other such environments in response to questions.

TWoK is just the shorthand for The Way of Kings.

Welcome to the shard. Have a cookie.

The abbreviations are for things like WoR (Words of Radiance) TWoK (The Way of Kings). 

For initiation could you say the phrase "My life to yours, my Breath become yours."?

Hi and Welcome! Unlike @Ookla the Elephant I will not try to take your breath, in fact I would like to offer you a cake invested with 50 breaths.

As far as the abbreviations, there is a full list at the abbreviation compendium, it is missing a few but the majority of them are there.

The uh... DA might have had some involvement in supplying him with er... "unnecessary" investiture, we give him any number of breaths that don't fit on our spikes, we only make spikes that bring you to a specific heightening. We didn't actually know he would end up competing with us.

Welcome to the Shard, look forward to seeing you a around. A piece of advice, tread carefully around the Arcanists. They tend to make people disappear and leave nothing behind except gummy bears and inaudible WoB's.
