Brandon Sanderson / Re: Alloy of Law (Chapter 5)

What I found most interesting was that koloss can apparently breed with humans. I guess it makes sense, since the original founders of the species were once human. Though that's interesting - I wonder if that means kandra would be able to have children with humans, or were they too thoroughly changed?
Sanderson said in this interview that Kandra are forbidden from assuming human bodies after the origin.
Combine that with the fact that new kandra are formed by piercing a mistwraith with spikes infused with allomantric powers and you've reduced the likelihood of new kandra to a minimum.

Sazed said that there were two they didn't know about, yet the Allomancy poster included four new "metals": chromium,nicrosil,cadmium and bendalloy.
My argument runs as follows and centers around the gold-electrum pairing:
1. Gold allows you to see what you might have been-that is alternative presents.
2. Electrum shows you what you will do-it's more absolute, unless your opponent is burning atium.

I was looking through the list of metals and their properties and it struck me-what if the alloys don't belong on the chart at all? There are supposed to be sixteen allomantric metals, not alloys.
What set me off was how very dissimilar some of the alloys were when compared to their base metals: gold and electrum for example.
My theory is that there are sixteen allomantric metals which can combine to form  allomantric alloys.
