  1. Am re-reading Oathbringer and can't help but want a Total war game based off the Kholin conquest of Alethkar. They'd need to add new mechanics for the regeneration of shardplate, and for equipment and customization for more than just the army's general so you could have multiple shards in a single army (and ideally make the unit pathing less stupid but let's be honest that's just how Total War works). Extreme High Storm attrition would make places other than cities important to hold, and of course, capturing enemy shards and enhancing your own shardbearers would be a central mechanic. The Thrill would prevent armies from breaking when they fight near it and it would move to battles with high casualties, berserking units that are winning. Potential problems: The Blackthorn in full shards at max rank and accompanied by the Thrill could singlehandedly destroy the standard 2000 men most total war games allow armies to max out at. solution? smaller maps, but larger max army sizes with a 'reserve' mechanic that allows troops to be held back off the map until sent in. It would also be the first total war game to have a reasonable explanation for why your armies don't need supply lines because of soulcasters
  2. I'm not sure this is exactly a theory, but it relates to the Cosmere as a whole, and I've seen other posts like this, so I'm going for it. What if there was a total war game based on the books of the cosmere. (It would function similar to Medieval 2: total war, with the ability to play on multiple planets.) Here are some ideas for armies with their pros and cons. Warning, there will be very minor spoilers to almost everyone of his cosmere books. I will be ignoring White Sand unfortunately. A few categories have ?s feel free to tell me how to fix those. (I am also adding heroes who could possibly be part of the armies.) (Last note, obviously the shardbearers would win any battle, but, for evenness sake, imagine slightly more balanced) Mistborn The Lord Ruler's Army Pros: Inquisitors, Kaandra, Mistborn, Mistings, Kollos Cons: Generally expensive, Normal soldiers are fairly low on skill Possible Heroes: The Lord Ruler Skaa Rebellion Pros: Very cheap troops, Huge numbers, A few mistings Cons: Poorly trained, Low morale Possible Heroes: Kelsier, Vin Elend's Army Pros: Fairly cheap troops, Kollos Cons: Low morale, Koloss will ocassionaly disobey Possible Heroes: Elend, Vin, Tensoon, Spook Ruin's Army Pros: Koloss, Inquisitors, Infinite morale Cons: ?
