Sanderson Fantasy Draft

20 posts in this topic

So, me, my friend @Kplynch21, and one other decided to do a Sanderson character fantasy draft. Since the other kid was behind us, we limited the books we could choose from to Stormlight Archive, Reckoners, and the first Mistborn book. Please tell us who you think would win and why! We decided not to use OP characters such as Hoid. All of the characters are at the end of the book or series except Szeth, David Charleston, and Prof (Prof at the midst of book 3). Please ask any clarifying questions. Oh, and we also had two joke picks.

Can shard-blades cut through Prof's shield? Can Prof heal from a shard-wound? These determine everything.

Yes I imagine they can cut through his shields. And I'd say yes, he can heal from the wounds.

If these are in order of picking, I'm really curious why it took you guys so long to pick "The ugly crab-lizard thing". I mean, "an ugly crab-lizard thing" is not so problematic, but "The ugly crab-lizard thing" is pretty powerful.

Lol, we did the joke picks last and don't say that it shouldn't be a joke pick.

No not yet. We have a kind of schedule and that's one of the last ones on there.

And does anyone know of a way to move this to a different category. I just noticed that I put it in "Introduce yourself"

That explains it. Don't worry about it in that case.

Oh and there is one question I just thought of that @Kplynch21 has to answer.

Whose body is OreSeur in?

i don't know how it is supposed to work, but it seems all pretty moot to me. the lord ruler just wipes everyone alone if he's putting some effort into it. he is simply too fast. none of the others can even see him. the only one who can offer some resistance is prof, by holing himself inside a shield, but i think compounded pewter will eventully broke through that too. and he will smash prof into pieces too small to regenerate.

take the lord ruler out of the equation, and prof kills everyone. he can fly, so most others cannot reach him. only the windrunners and steelheart can try to atttack him. against the windrunners he is the only one who can hit from afar, using his shields as spears. he should be able to keep his distance and hit until he scores. he also does not have a limited fuel for his power, unlike windrunners. against steelheart, even if prof can't hurt steelheart, he can trap him in a shield (it withstood a nuke equivalent, it's far above anything steelheart can do to free himself) and let him starve.

take prof out of the equation, and my money is on steelheart against everyone else. fly out of range, blast with energy from afar, invulnerable to anyone except a feruchemist (if tapping determination is not enough to make you afraid, just store into a coppermind all memories of who steelheart is, you can't be afraid of someone you don't know). or possibly obliteration, i don't know.

just too much of a difference in power level between the lord ruler, a high epic, and everyone else.

I think it all depends in Atium because if the Lord Ruler doesn't have it, then Prof could just squeeze him to death in a force field bubble. He probably does have it though, but that means so would both of my Mistborn.

But Lord Ruler also would have the feruchemical bracelet made out of atium, which makes him effectively immortal

But Vin killed the Lord Ruler so it's possible that Kell and Zane teamed up could do it.

nope. the lord ruler has as much Feruchemical steel as he wants. he moves so fast that nobody can even see him. prof cannot target him if he has no idea where he is. though admittedly he is the only one who can have a shot at tlr.

wrong. the atium bracelet contained youth. it made him ageless. it did nothing for healing wounds. you need Feruchemical gold for it. of course tlr had that too.

vin only won with a massive deus ex machina. namely

Spoiler

tapping the mists

Once you read bands of mourning, you realize how incredibly ridiculous was tlr power, and how vin could have had absolutely no chance otherwise. Heck, every single inhabitant of the final empire could have been a mistborn full of atium, and tlr could have killed them all anyway with nothing but a pinch of metals.

 

EDIT: for further clarification, (bands of mourning BIG spoilers)

Spoiler

vin pushed the metalminds away from the lord ruler, leaving him powerless and quickly aging. but tlr metalminds were so heavily invested, it would have been absolutely impossible for anyone not tapping the mists to push on them. vax mistakes the bracers for aluminium because he can't feel them allomantically at all - and add that tlr ones were also piercing skin. With them, marasi could move so fast that she left vacuum behind her - so fast that friction with air would kill her, but she has gold to heal. no, the only reason vin was still alive after the first millisecond was that tlr was bored and did not consider her a threat in the slightest - which, if not for the mists which tlr had no way to anticipate, would have been an absolutely correct assessment.
