  1. It has been years since the Emperor was fixed by the Forger and the Heritage Faction was saved from losing control of the government. There has been evidence of Forgery of Imperial artifacts, and at first it was thought that Shai had come back but she had been contacted and it turned out she was on the other side of the continent. This meant there was only one possibility. Others had learned that the Heritage Faction had allowed the work of Forgers, so they had employed them to try and take control from them once and for all. ------ Welcome to Quick Fix 53: Forging a Nation! The rules are down below, but are quite simple and should take less than two minutes to read through. Here is a link to the doc if you want it. Signups will end on May 31, at 10 pm PST. Rollovers should be pretty quick each turn. Rules: Player List: Pinch Hitters: Quick Links:
  2. Not really a complex theory. I think Hoid has the Lord Ruler's atium bracers. Why? Well, they got sold between The Final Empire and Well of Ascension in order to get food money... and just vanish from the plot there. Vin and Elend never bring it up again, even though they're doing their best to try to scrape up some atium from somewhere, and you'd think that one of them would worry that they'd supplied their own enemy at some point when atium was used against them. After all, the only thing people would use atium for is to become a killing machine, so if someone is buying atium, you'd normally expect them to, oh, have a mistborn on staff somewhere, so you'd really be best off paying close attention to that person. If they sold it to Hoid, he could have used any of his wondrous and largely unexplained powers to deflect suspicion, and make them ignore it. Heck, Ruin might've made Vin ignore it as well. Depends if he was the one responsible for scaring her off from Hoid in HoA or not. We have (somewhat inconsistent) Word of Brandon on what happens when someone burns a hemalurgic spike, but it seems to be dangerous in general. Now, some mistborn COULD have chumped out, eaten the bracers, and choked to death on them offscreen, but that would be boring. Hoid always goes for items that are rare, valuable, and mentioned outside their presence in his collection (so far, at least). And, well, atium is condensed solid essence of a shard he hasn't been mentioned as having yet, and, massive historical value aside, these bracers ALSO have hemalurgic and feruchemical charges in them, so it's like a three-for-one deal. Maybe four, if you consider that the Lord Ruler was also a sliver of preservation, and that might've rubbed off on the spikes over the centuries. Not really a substantial theory, but I figure that Hoid *has* to have some atium to complete his collection, getting atium offscreen would be far less interesting, and this would by far be the easiest bit for him to get (second-easiest being Zane's cache). It's cooler than any of the alternatives, and when an author has the option between equally-plausible options, I think the cool one tends to win out.
