I'm planning on going to Ad Astra to see Brandon. Does anyone know what day(s) he will be there? Thanks

I emailed the people actually and they said a schedule should be posted some time this weekend! Also anyone have an idea on what questions should be asked?

I'm sure you will get lots of suggestions from everyone's personal lists (mine is here) but my recommendation is to look over the questions that got answered in the most recent events in BostonPolandBulgaria, and Germany. Odds are you will find some that spark follow-up questions of your own, and you can be reasonably certain you are working with up-to-date knowledge.

Awesome! Thanks for the info! Do you know if he will be doing signings/Q&A all three days? Or will that be on a specific day?

I emailed The Con myself actually to figure out when he will be there for any of the events. I also bought the tickets for the brunch with him, if I am lucky I will actually get to do that.

I'm planning on attending with a list of complicated questions. 

You buy the tickets on the As Astra site under registration? Where are the brunch tickets?

Of course if someone has no questions to ask, I will offer myself to fix this issue B)

Spool vs Yata's avatar. I'm expecting some good WoBs, some frustrating RAFOs and Spool breaking records for the number of questions asked before being evicted.  Looking forward to it guys.

By the end of the weekend Brandon is probably going to start getting the RAFO card ready when I step up.

As a first set of possible questions (as OB's release is relative near I will avoid SA's questions):

- Has a Twinborn (like Wax) problems to Push on his own Metalmind (for Identity's interference) ?

- A Metalmind or Spikes could physically block a Shardblade. Does those hits impact on the Metalmind's charge ? (something like ruin a coppermind's memories)

- We know the mechanics behind some magic systems' mechanics - Hemarurgy cuts/sews pieces of Spiritwebs, Awakening imprints an object with a new cognitive aspect. What are the mechanics that make Steelsight (and Wax's Bands-enhanced version) work? (for @Argent but I can't honestly find a direct and better wording)

- Most of Heightenings' benefit seems to be toward a general concept of Perfection, are mostly of those benefits stricly Breath related or they are general consequence of having a lot of Innate Investiture ?

- The Awakened Object's Breaths will slowly running out of power. Does this happen also when they are into a someone's soul (in his lifetime) ?

- Could a Shard invests so much of his power to make the Vessel de-Ascend ?

- If a Susenbron's Lifeless held an uncovered Nightblood, would Nightblood be able to feed of his breath ? (Because Breath's removal seems to be connect to a color draining, so if the owner can't be color drained maybe Nightblood can't take his Breath

- Does a Soulforgery change the subject's Identity ?

What's there to know? Burn steel or iron, blue lines appear, which point to sources of metal. Or is the question how exactly that works?

Honestly, I'd phrase it directly: "We know the mechanics behind some magic systems' mechanics - Hemarurgy cuts/sews pieces of Spiritwebs, Awakening imprints an object with a new cognitive aspect. What are the mechanics that make Steelsight (and Wax's Bands-enhanced version) work?"

I changed the previous post with your version.

As Argent explained in his last reply, Steelpush seems linear and clear in practice and usual usage. But when you start to apply it into extreme and weird cases...the outcome seems counterintuitive

Well, not even that. Steelsight is just weird to me - why see lines at all instead of feeling where the metal is? Why not see metal glow? Why do the lines connect you with source of metal specifically? Why are they affected by Cognitive Realm (e.g. when Wax, in the Shadows of Self prologue, switches from thinking about the bullet as a single piece of metal, to three distinct pieces)? And why do very strong pushes allow the Allomancer to see more than just metal - and what is that something?

Overall it feels - to me - like a magical effect that looks deceptively simple, but works off of really complex realmatic mechanics.

blue is the opposite of red, and red is the color of angry shades, of voidbringer eyes, stars in the scar, trellium, etc.

Well, one can see blue lines with iron, so there's also Ironsight, which accomplishes the same as Steelsight. Also, is the schedule up yet? I keep checking the site and can't find it.

Alright Sanderfans, they didn't put up a schedule page yet, but they updated their Events and Prgramming page. Here's a list of the events starring Brandon.

Saturday

4:00-6:00: Signing

Sunday

10:00-12:00: Guest of Honor Brunch

1:00: Reading

 

That's all I've gathered so far, I'll update this as more things pop up.
