  1. Wow... this is amazing (meaning ... well, just amazing how much depth this goes into, other people who actually care about the magic systems and stuff. I'm used to only my brother and myself having even read any of the books) Well... as has been stated, he is a cognitive shadow. I unfortunately do not know much about cognitive shadows, but I believe that he never actually touches anything that we can tell, so it is possible that he filled the bracers and made the memory simply from a state of a cognitive shadow manifest in the real world. ... and I just remembered that he did medallions and all that. um... yeah, I would say the returned theory is part of the answer with a possibility of gold feruchemy being the rest (inhabited bones, then used ... probably the BoM to regrow the flesh as was stated previously into what... hm... would it be his soul, or is there a seperate soul for the physical body? it obviously carries over to cognitive shadows... not sure. anyway, yeah, inhabit bones then regrow with gold.) I really need to read secret history or whatever it is with cognitive shadows... still awed and happy that there are others even more into this than I am.
  2. I have done some programming (unfortunately its been rather isolated, not much that has been general to build skill in diving into unfamiliar things), but I do not recognize the language you are programming in. I also have a lot going on right now (school, FRC (robotics, we're going to worlds! ), AP classes, etc) so I don't think that I'm going to get much of a chance to look at it in a while. This is probably my first free evening excluding weekends for 3 weeks, and including weekends... well, I typically just play video games friday to wind-down so I could work on it then, but I have projects... etc etc. Its .js so I would assume java script. I will look into it if I find enough time to.
  3. Also "I wanted to do that." should be "Wasing the wanting of doing the thing", however it returns "Wasing of the wanting of do that." it really is quite amazing what you're doing, I don't intend to be insulting by pointing these things out, I merely want to improve it. And with the previous comment about "wanting" I believe it was used in place of "need" such as in a distress call in... was it alloy of law? where it said something along the lines of "wanting the assistance" (it wasn't that specifically) but it was a distress call that could be viewed as "I/We need help!" so... I'm guessing that a lot of what it is would be overly simplifying the language. I'm not sure if they would still do that with High Imperialism, but at least on the Eastern Street Slang part a good idea would be setting up proper conjugation charts for certain words, then creating lists of words that would become the word in question. Just an idea, though I feel that the sheer volume of a task like that would make this something of an open-source, or at least something that should be put further into the community for aid. Perhaps a link on the high imperialism page including a link to somewhere improvements/grammatical stuff/synonym lists and the like can be sent to be incorporated?
  4. cool, wasing/wanting both seem to show up more in the books though Also would be nice to be able to go the other way. As is said in the books, it really is a headache to understand it, even if it is created systematically.
  5. I'm a skaa are ranks based on mistborn only, or all his books?
  6. So... I've been thinking about programming an accurate rithmatist game, then about simply playing it on paper with my siblings because it would be a horror to make a video game of for my skill level... honestly, making something like that would be hard I've seen a few games, but all of them fall terribly short, they are cool, yes, but none are even close to what it really should be... anyway, that's kinda besides the point. Thing is, once we do get a true rithmatist game (I have no doubt that we will eventually), I have a really cool idea considering a play method for it. I've heard descriptions of stuff like airsoft arenas, and have been in laser tag arenas, large, walled off areas where people who don't like conventional sports (and even those who do) can play a fun physical game. My idea is make something like that, only on 1 level. Essentially remake the melee arena in the real world, with something similar to smart boards as the floor. I've seen stuff like that done, a virtual tide pool that you can stand on top of and make ripples in. Just, ya know, melee sized. then have an uber-powered computer programmed to run a rithmatist-style game. the players would be given special shoes to detect where they are on the field to tell when they are taken out, along with some chalk, perhaps 3 sticks that they can customize before hand, color, hardness (essentially size), etc. So... what do you guys think? You would still be left with the problem of chalklings, you would be limited to the chalklings in the machine, then also the runes to control them... it would be rather annoying. The best thing I can think of is allow submissions from players of various level versions of creatures, skeletal, shaded, etc. you would then be able to select your chalkling based on various options. Offensive/defensive, attack/health/speed, skeletal/shaded, you would then set where it is bound to (if bound), then set where it is going to be as maximum distance (if bound), or start point. if bound it would bring the chalkling closer in and have a wavy chain/rope (players decision) going to that distance. you would then trace the creature and its chain, and it would receive stats based on its base stats and how well you mimicked the chalkling. Further improvements may include the ability to have an account that stores favorite chalklings, as well as a name to display on leaderboard, or perhaps the possibility of polychromatic chalklings with higher stats, perhaps capable of fire damage, bark skin, etc. So... what do you guys think of this idea? as of now, I would be stuck on the theoretical team, my programming skills leave a lot to be desired, and as far as artistic capabilities... well, they aren't that great. Feel free to share ideas to improve this, or ideas on how to do the coding, perhaps ideas for sketches, stats, etc.
  7. o.o Yeah. They do look like giant chalklings... but aren't chalk. Also, what about 3d chalklings? they're something that my brother some friends and I have come up with in an rp that included the rithmatist's magic. essentially you draw your chalkling onto a 3d object, or carve chalk into a desired shape, including a glyph of rending because it really quite would need it in order to do much as 3d... anyway, just a strange idea we thought of. Also, how are chalklings controlled? we're told "glyphs" yet they obviously have some measure of intelligence, take for example the redhead's unicorns (sorry, I forgot her name), they take very few glyphs, but are better behaved than any other creatures.
  8. To all future users who find this. Look no further, for all is revealed in time (with the Alcatraz novels at least) oh, also, remember what Al is.
  9. Yeah, and rithmatist is the only one that would make pg. ... well, then again that bit about how chalklings eat people... if its adapted into visual rather than simply said, I think that would break it being pg.
  10. thanks. I might look into it. I kinda want to see how all these idea about his books are put into stories.
  11. So... Sorry to be off topic, but where would one find something such as fanfictions here?
  12. The rithmatist is among the best novels I've read, and the second out of 3 sources of any type including math based magic (the first was a great graphic novel I forgot the name of, for formula, when completed, opened a portal to a world where math is essentially magic, start of a series, please tell title if you know) anyway, it is the best material that he has made for a movie, and I think he should try for it. Yup, not really much to this, just saying I think it would be his best shot at an unedited movie.
  13. There is 1 flaw with this. It is a very nice theory, but ignores that the shadowblaze must be bound. We get a brief example in the forgotten. And while it should have bound, it didn't. He will quite possibly become a rithmatist through other means though.
  14. I believe glyph of rending was saying carve with chalklings. Also, this could likely be possible assuming the rithmatist does it all by hand. Another option is trace a 3d object that is either very light and flexible, or that can be dissolved without damaging the chalk. An interesting idea I've put to use already in an rp with some friends (it is quite my own, although some forms of magic have been taken from books. They however, were modified.)
  15. Hey, kinda new here, but I've been reading the books a while. Hope it counts. Anyway, it is a very interesting theory, but I swear he told melody about it and she flipped... May be wrong, its been a while, and I am known to dream about stories I've read. Either way, I remember melody flipping out over what happened, but still refusing to give specifics only saying it was wrong. Another flaw, I distinctly remember him forgetting he wasn't a rithmatist temporarily. Very interesting, but its a stretch, especially considering some of the kids would believe so much and want if so much they would practically know they were rithmatists, yet still be normal.
