      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.

Regarding Adonalsium's "opposing force" + Shadows for Silence planet name

6 posts in this topic

There is an opposing force to Adonalsium, and at the midnight release, I asked Brandon to write in my book something about that opposing force. He wrote:

"There was a weapon created by the opposition of Adonalsium."

Well, that's terrifying. What if it is still around? Someone should ask Brandon if Odium knows of this weapon.

Also! I asked Peter at the release what was the Shadows for Silence planet name. It is Threnody.

I'm sorry for the debacle that was the release--at least in getting theoretical content. We do have a recording of the Q&A and reading, but the audio could suck. We... misplaced recorders. Ahem.

But at least this is something. That is all from my end regarding the midnight release.

This is going to sound a bit out of the box... but what if the weapon is humanity? We certainly know humans can be created by shards, such as the Scadrians, but are we absolutely sure the first humans were created by Adonalsium?

 

If this is the case, I think it is safe to say that the weapon is still around. :)

I completely forgot all about that short story. I need to read it.

 

And are the humans from Scadrial called Scadrians? I've always gone with Scadralians for some reason. Not saying you're wrong but I'm ignorant in this case and honestly do not know/remember.

They are indeed Scadrians. Brandon gave us the demonyms for known planets in our forum Q&A here.

I butchered the spelling on my transcription of the San Diego signing, but you should go check out that thread in the signing board for more info :D it's not much at all, but there is a bit on it.

And it worked, as far as we know.
