      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.

Verified Locations for Unreleased Books/Chapters and Sample Chapters of Published Books

56 posts in this topic

Both of those are the same link, actually.

I don't think there will be any big issues with posting links to things that Brandon himself has made publicly available, and Chaos had no problem with it in the other thread. So I think this thread should be fine.

That said, I think we should make it clear in this thread that nothing that is unpublished is cannon, just to make sure we don't accidentally cause any confusion on that issue. Especially considering all the cosmere-ish stuff that can be found in the Liar sample chapters.

EDIT:

I don't think the Well of Acension chapters should be listed in this thread, since that was published a while ago. I'm not sure about Alloy of Law being here either, but I guess since it's not being released officially till later this year...

Important info about Brandon's unpublished works

When reading chapters of something unpublished, keep in mind that nothing in them is finalized, nothing is cannon. Anything in them can and often will be contradicted by published books. They can still provide interesting tidbits of insight into Brandon's thoughts at the time and the direction he was planning for the cosmere, but don't be in a rush to base any theories off of what you see in them.

In case anyone isn't already familiar with the books mentioned above...

Scribbler/Rithmatist

As far as I know, this book is not a part of the cosmere, and thus has no connections to other cosmere books. It's also a book that I think has a pretty good chance of being published, though of course if it does its final form may be rather different than those old sample chapters.

Lair of Partinel

This is a cosmere book. It's related to another unpublished work called Dragonsteel, being one of two books originally planned to take place several hundred years before Dragonsteel, on the same world.

If you're confused about the start of that book, click the spoiler tag below.

Though I am not sure if Brandon has ever 100% confirmed this, the Hoid that dies at the start of Liar is not the same Hoid as the one we know from the other cosmere books. Rather, his apprentice Midius takes on the name Hoid and becomes the person we all know and love.

Mistborn Alloy of Law

A new book in the Mistborn world, taking place a few hundred years after the end of the trilogy. Unlike the other books listed here, Alloy of Law is being published this Nov, and the chapters linked above are offical sample chapters. So what you read there is cannon.

Corrected the spelling of Partinel.

I was going to do just the unpublished stuff but decided to combine it into one big location that could be pinned for anyone looking for any sample chapters and books. Do we want explanations for the books or not needed?

In addition, those Scribbler chapters are of an old version. They will probably be revised in some fashion.

EDIT: Explanations could be nice.

Darn mod edits making my post make no sense now... :P

I'd say there's probably not much need for explanations for any published works, but a little bit of background for the unpublished works would be a good idea.

Hey, I'm just saying, spell titles of books correctly :P

EDIT: Especially in a resource topic, after all.

Actually, I was refering to how mycoltbug was able to edit his post without causing the "edited by" thing to appear, so I now quote part of a post that doesn't seem to have ever existed.

Yeah I'll work on explanations as I get time and I plan on keeping this as up to date with new chapters and books as they come up.

Cool beans. Do you think this should go in General Theories, or Brandon Discussion? I could go either way, but it isn't directly related to theories.

Here's another Liar of Partinel link.

http://www.brandonsanderson.com/drafts/warbreaker/LiarPt12.doc

Also, I think I remember hearing something about there being a few Mistborn Prime and/or Final Empire Prime chapters up. Though since one of those was apparantly the worst book Brandon ever wrote, I'm not sure how much effort we should make to find them. :D Maybe my memory is wrong and they weren't posted anyways.

Brandon Discussion would be a good place I think. Maybe even pin it? :)

nice. I think this topic is a great idea. However,i think this would be better suited in the general "brandon discussion" section, rather than the theories section

Also: I'm gonna sticky this. This is worthy of staying at the top for any and all new people.

I feel obligated to provide links to

Awesome got those added and also added a few descriptions. I'm trying to keep them stupidly simple and short. I also added a link for The Hope of Elantris. Man this thing is getting big.

You could use spoiler tags to hide the links to make it smaller :P

Yeah, while there's nothing wrong with a thread running long, I do think the use of spoiler tags could make this one in particular easier to digest and find what you want as it grows longer.

Just something like:

Misborn Chapters:

The final empire

ch1

ch2

The well of ascension

ch3

The hero of ages

ch2

ch4

alloy of law

ch1

Elantris chapters:

ch1

ch2

etc.

I would personally prefer not using spoiler tags. If anything, make a new topic with separate posts for series, and try and cobble a table of contents where you can link to each post.

I think that would get a lot messier than using spoiler tags IMHO.

I agree, spoiler tags are much simpler. Why make things more complicated then they need to be?
