  1. Here's a video of one of the panels Brandon was on (recorded, I believe by Jim Butcher's assistant?):
  2. Hey there Sanderfans. This weekend is the fiftieth anniversary of the Best Four Days in Gaming. That’s right, GenCon 50 started this past Thursday, and there is a bunch of Sanderson related awesomeness happening there. First and foremost is the fact that the man himself is in attendance. You can check out his schedule of events in the post about GenCon on his site. Brandon and Steve Argyle (who did two paintings of Vin for the Mistborn: The Final Empire leatherbound) are giving away special tokens that can be used in games like Magic: The Gathering (aka Brandon’s favorite game). The Warrior will be given to anyone who asks either Brandon or Steve for one, whereas the Assassin is the prize for a special scavenger hunt that Brandon explains in his GenCon post. If you aren’t there at GenCon don’t worry about missing out, Brandon has said that he will try to have them when he goes on tour. As usual Crafty Games has a booth but this year sees a couple new products that they are showing off. Last week Crafty released the newest supplement for their Mistborn Adventure Game, Alloy of Law: Masks of the Past. This supplement focuses on the information revealed in Shadows of Self and The Bands of Mourning. It also includes eight mini-adventures that Narrators can run. Check out the product description over on Crafty’s site, though do be careful certain things are referenced that could be considered spoilers for Shadows and Bands. Crafty will also be showing off Mistborn: House War, the board game they Kickstarted last year. The finished game has finally arrived at their warehouse, and will be sent out to backers shortly. They only have a limited number of copies with them at GenCon, but if you are there swing by and check it out. Finally Nauvoo Games has a booth where they are showing off the Reckoners board game they have been developing. Speaking of which, a lot has come out since the last time we gave an update on its progress. The Kickstarter officially has a start date of October 24 of this year, which is only about two months from now! They have also posted the box art by Miguel Coimbra and Ian O’Toole. Seth Van Orden of Nauvoo Games also posted a thread over on BoardGameGeek.com giving people the opportunity to suggest the name and powers of an Epic which could potentially make it into the game! So if you have an idea head on over and suggest it. Bower’s Game Corner, on Youtube, has also posted a short interview from GenCon with Brett Sobol talking a little about the game.
  3. They usually post more than that. WoR had about ten chapters posted for it. Even Bands had six.
  4. Brandon is talking about writing order here, not release order. There are two publishers (plus the novellas likely will be self-published or with a small press) so schedules are going to overlap probably.
  5. Indexing, want to make sure the wobs you shared are dated correctly.
  6. It was part of the class, right? Was it a Tuesday or a Monday class?
  7. Quick question, do you happen to remember the day that q&a took place?
  8. MeLaan probably has aluminum bones for the same reason that solid gold toilets are a thing. She's an immortal and probably has a good chunk of money if she is able to afford a skeleton's worth of aluminum, so why not have one? But on a more serious note I do think it is important to note that she might not be using it for its magical attributes, but rather its more mundane ones. Aluminum is fairly strong, but also relatively light. That sounds like a perfect material to use.
  9. @Figberts Would you mind posting a picture of the book/wob for archival purposes?
  10. @Darkness Would you mind posting the audio you have from the Sydney event, if it isn't too much trouble?
  11. This is correct.
  12. Is your profile pic some kind of Aon? Because it looks like one.

      It's a mock-up of a non-canon Aon Ian I came up with.

    2. Overstorm

      Took me a while to identify how it's built but it's a very nice Aon! It only uses the basic shape of Aon Aon and that's something I love *shudders remembering Ashe, Daa or Dii*

      Did you give it a meaning? *looks at handle* Perhaps "writing"?

      I have actually spent an inordinate amount of time thinking about this... Here's what I came up with:

      Quote

      Aon Ian has the meanings "Winter" and "Snow". Its effect in AonDor is that it acts as a heat sink, absorbing heat in the area surrounding it until reaching its resting temperature. Modifiers can be added to raise/lower the temperature it rests at as well as how quickly it absorbs the heat.

      Aon Ian can also be used as a "branching" Aon that can be used in an Aon equation to define a sequence, or sequences, that will only be triggered if certain conditions are met. These conditions are usually temperature related, though it is possible to modify it for other stimuli if there is not a more applicable branching Aon to be used.

      The default resting temperature also serves as the zero point for the Elantrian temperature scale.

       

  13. So Brandon just recently mentioned on reddit that he will be at GenCon this year. If I had to guess it would be as part of the launch of Mistborn: House War, but he'll be doing a number of events: Thursday 2:00pm-3:00pm - Worldbuilding: Creating a Universe of Worlds 4:00pm-5:00pm - Brandon Sanderson signing Friday 1:00pm-2:00pm - Q&A with Brandon Sanderson 1:00pm-5:00pm - Play Magic: The Gathering with Brandon Sanderson 6:00pm-7:00pm - Writing Excuses LIVE! 7:00pm-8:00pm - Writing Excuses LIVE! Saturday 12:00pm-1:00pm - Brandon Sanderson signing 2:00pm-3:00pm - Worldbuilding: Making Magic New Again 3:00pm-4:00pm - Writer's Craft: Can a Hero be Too Powerful?
  14. There will be an Oathbringer spoiler subforum created "soon" (might have to wait until Chaos is back from vacation).
