Ettmetal Is REALLY special

4 posts in this topic

So, most metals are classed in 3 ways - internal/external, pushing/pulling, physical/mental/enhancement/temporal.

The coppermind page for ettmetal lists says: "The Mistborn Metal Dice Set from Crafty Games lists a non-canonical description of harmonium's properties, stating "Unknown in the Classic Era, Harmonium replicates the effects of nearby Allomantic or Feruchemical metals." It also lists harmonium as an Internal and Pushing God Metal."

Notably this is a non canonical description,

I think Ettmetal is an external Pushing AND Pulling god metal.
That seems impossible, right?

Well, you see Ettmetal can both steal allomantic power like chromium (pulling), and project allomancy(pushing)
This makes sense thematically for harmony. Ruin was the Shard of Pushing, while Preservation was the Shard of pulling. This manifests in preservation reading thoughts, while ruin can implant them. Harmony can do both, and thus harmonium (ettmetal) can too.

Except... Isn't Allomancy of Preservation, and not at all of Ruin?

Godmetals provide the power needed for Allomancy instead of taking it from Preservation, so technically Harmonium would be of both Preservation and Ruin.

Harmonium yes. For some reason I was thinking more of Lerasium.
