      I could, if you want. You'd just need to pre-order one through the JordanCon site and note down that I'd be picking it up for you. (What's one more book to pack?) And you'd have to be willing to give me an address to send it to.

      Or you could just come to JordanCon in 2020. :ph34r:

    I don't think anyone closed the poll on purpose. It might be that Chaos getting a vote broke it and tore a hole in the fabric of the universe. I can easily picture Mr. Bill or some other innocent clay-based life form losing their precious life on those tracks. (In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if Robot Chicken has done a skit on this idea.) Bzzt! Unauthorized use of non-canon fan art, 5 demerits and you owe 20 hours of community service, preferably in the form of watching MLP:FiM with your closest child relative.

    Are you kidding me? All that machinery is dangerous. Not to mention what might happen if he started sleepwalking. Think of all those innocent people he could accidentally run over!
  4. The fake spellcaster spammers show up now and then, usually in waves. This one has been...dealt with. Edited To Add: @Karger - I hope you don't mind, I edited out the contact info from the quote you included. I'd rather not risk some poor gullible lurker giving it a try and getting fleeced.
  5. Seek the Sandertrack. I'm usually on several panels.
  6. Note to all going: as in past years, I will be giving out 17th Shard ribbons for your badges. You will need to find me to get one. (Spoiler alert: I'm easy to find.)
  7. I think the primary issue with Alloy of Law is its unplanned nature. It started as a writing exercise, turned into a short story, and then he morphed it into a full novel. It wasn't originally plotted as a novel, which throws the pacing off. Given that Brandon generally plots things out pretty tightly, the odd nature of AoL can throw people off a bit when they first read it.
  8. Will I be there? Magic 8 Ball says: "Duh. Is water wet? Good grief, woman, why do you keep asking me such stupidly obvious questions?"
  9. We still exist! I, alas, have not yet seen any of season 9. I have to wait until it hits Netflix.
  10. I believe there will be a significant difference between becoming a Compounding savant and what I personally like to refer to as Compounding drag. This is potentially a thing per: Compounding drag would be somewhat similar in concept to pewter drag (and obviously pewter Compounding would be pewter drag squared). You'd have to run yourself hard on your metal for a fairly significant period of time and different metals will have different results. Compounding steel for a while could possibly lead to feeling like you're made of molasses afterwards; zinc might leave you feeling dazed and like you're having trouble thinking/following things going on around you. My speculation would be that tapping (not continuing to Compound) a metalmind for a while might help you ease off of the effects afterwards. But it'd be exceedingly minor compared to savantism. A Compounding savant will as be wholly dependent on burning their metal as a regular Allomantic savant would be. This is the level that I'd say that Miles had reached; he Compounded gold all the dang time and thus experienced all of the weird side effects thereof. A savant cannot function normally without a burn of their metal going on constantly.
  11. Way late response, but I just spotted this. Hello, fellow JordanConner!
  12. As stated in the Mistborn Ars Arcanum - Allomancy creates more power than you put in - that comes from Preservation. Hemalurgy results in a loss of power - hence Ruin. Feruchemy neither creates nor loses power, and thus it is the balance between the powers.
  13. I see what you did there.
