RoW and Dawnshard Spoiler Policy

3 posts in this topic

Hi everyone, I just wanted to clarify some things about spoilers for Rhythm of War and Dawnshard as we approach release! Everything's the same as in our spoiler policy, but we just wanted to give some more specifics.

Rhythm of War

  • Rhythm of War spoilers must only* be in one of our three spoiler boards for Rhythm of War: RoW General Thoughts, RoW Character Discussion, and RoW Lore, Cosmere, and Mechanics. These will exist for nine months after Rhythm of War's release.
  • Only publicly released material can be discussed in Rhythm of War boards, such as the prerelease chapters. Full book spoilers are not allowed until Midnight Eastern time on November 17th.
  • Full cosmere spoilers are allowed untagged in the RoW Lore, Cosmere, and Mechanics board. In other forums, you must hide non-Stormlight content behind spoiler tags in posts, or put a tag like [Mistborn] in the title.
  • Avoid spoilers in topic titles.

Dawnshard

  • Dawnshard spoilers go in our Dawnshard spoiler board, which will exist for three months after release.
  • Do not put Rhythm of War spoilers in this board.
  • Cosmere spoilers are allowed in the Dawnshard board.
  • Avoid spoilers in topic titles.

How to discuss Rhythm of War and Dawnshard material together

  • Use the RoW boards if you want to discuss Rhythm of War and Dawnshard together.
  • Dawnshard material in the RoW must be spoiler tagged. Either put [Dawnshard] in the topic title, or hide Dawnshard material behind spoiler tags in a post.

*There may be certain exceptions. For example, RoW spoilers (or Dawnshard spoilers) could come up in the Coppermind or Arcanum boards, and that is okay. But do not put RoW spoilers in other book discussion boards, even if it is tagged. Use the appropriate spoiler board instead. Additionally, the Shardcast channel on Discord will have spoilers when we do videos on new stuff.

Is there any way currently to point out any RoW spoilers where they are not supposed to be to someone so they can be removed?

You press the Report button. On mobile, it displays as a Flag icon. Then we will deal with it.
