Harmonium Allomantic Power Revealed

4 posts in this topic

So I have just backed the 'Mistborn Metal Dice' project on Kickstarter by Crafty Games - they ahve created the Mistborn RPGs and the Mistborn: House War tabletop game in the past...

 

Therefore, anything which they produce, usually has high involvement from Brandon.

 

In the description of the dice, the 20 of which all are based around a different Allomantic metal, it describes Harmonium as the following:

 

(God, Internal, Pushing) - Unknown in the Classis Era, Harmonium replicates the effects of nearby Allomantic or Feruchemical metals

 

DISCUSS!

I don't see how that description is any different than what we see on-screen. You use primer cubes to copy other Metallic Arts; I suspect that's all they're referring to.

Brandon may be involved but nothing in the games is canon unless he explicitly says so. We know from WoB that the MAG's rules for the various metals' feruchemical applications are not canonical.

Do the other uses for those metals [nicrosil, aluminum, duralumin] currently in the RPG also work in-universe, or are they just there for RPG mechanics?

Most of the things in the RPG books relating to the metals that you don't see in the books fall under the "We need to make a game out of this somehow, Brandon" clause. I've told them they can extrapolate if they want, but that I wouldn't consider their extrapolations canon.

So does that mean that these metals will be getting updated rules in a future RPG supplement?

Brandon Sanderson

That's a possibility. I've said before that you should consider any games you play to be in an alternate dimension anyway, where the rules work slightly differently, and your players can control the fate of what is going on. Plus, it will be years before I can get to the nature of all this in the next trilogy, so we'll see how relevant it all is in five years or so.

Mistborn: Secret History Explanation (Feb. 5, 2016)

This was made abundantly clear when The Bands of Mourning came out and we saw that F-Nicrosil doesn't work at all like the MAG rules. So anything that the rules for the dice say are interesting but they're not canon and are subject to future revision by Brandon.

But is that their Allomantic ability? As in, is that what their effect would be if an Allomancer were to burn it (aside from possibly exploding: see cesium comments by Brandon)

This looks like it's describing the Allomantic grenades we saw in era 2
