All right. This is something I once thought of: is there a theme for each metal that can fit through the Metallic Arts? I know that tin seems to have one - senses - but I'm trying to find a general pattern to all the metals. I don't have a specific idea, but I think we should work in the general direction of pushing/pulling metals. 

Here is the list of what metals do in each Metallic Art:

Iron - A: pulls on metals. Fe: stores weight. H: steals strength. 

Steel - A: pushes on metals. Fe: stores physical speed. H: steals physical allomantic powers. 

Tin - A: enhances senses. Fe: stores senses. H: steals senses. 

Pewter - A: enhances strength and balance. Fe: storing physical strength. H: steals physical feruchemical powers. 

Zinc - A: riots emotions. Fe: stores mental speed. H: steals emotional fortitude. 

Brass - A: soothes emotions. Fe: stores warmth. H: steals cognitive feruchemy. 

Copper - A: hides allomantic pulses. Fe: stores memory. H: steals mental fortitude, memory, and intelligence

Bronze - A: allows to hear allomantic pulses. Fe: stores wakefulness. H: steals mental allomancy. 

Aluminum - A: wipes internal allomantic reserves. Fe: stores Identity. H: removes all powers. 

Duralumin - A: quickly burns any burning metals in powerful burst. Fe: stores connection. H: steals connection and identity. 

Chromium - A: wipes out target's allomantic reserves. Fe: stores furtune. H: might steal destiny? 

Nicrosil - A: enhances allomantic burn of target. Fe: stores investiture. H: steals investiture. 

Gold - A: shows past self (or alternative present self). Fe: stores health. H: steals hybrid feruchemy. 

Electrum - A: shows possible future of the burner. Fe: stores determination. H: steals enhancement allomancy. 

Cadmium - A: slows down time. Fe: stores breath. H: steals temporal allomancy. 

Bendalloy - A: speeds up time. Fe: stores energy. H: steals spiritual feruchemy. 

Proceed to read the spoiler with caution - it's not too spoilery, but it always pays to be cautious. 


I started a similar thread once on the RoW spoiler board, because reasons (and anyone who read enough knows why). When I'll be able, I will put a link, in case you have RoW-spoiling ideas.

I actually put this a few days ago but be warned there are some RoW spoilers.  All info is from the epigraphs(no plot) but if you have not read it yet be careful.

You're idea is interesting, though you sometimes ignored the hemalurgic power, so it helps, but not quiet enough.

Anyway, here's a link to the topic I started about it.IIRC there were interesting ideas over there, but I don't think it was anything too large. Be wary, this thread consists spoilers for RoW part 1.
