Brandon Sanderson / Warbreaker on '' Update?
« on: July 02, 2009, 04:26:00 AM »
When I first downloaded Warbreaker I got it from Mr. Sanderson's site.  The device I use to read books isn't friendly with PDF's so I Googled the book.  Through it, I found and a copy of the book in a format that my reader worked very, very well with.  Unfortunately, in a zealous glee at finding one that worked so well, I missed that it was published in 2008 and is actually v4.0.
I don't know if Mr. Sanderson put it there himself or if someone did it for him but I just wanted to know if the book would be updated on or if I will have to go back to copying the text out of the PDF(It didn't work very well).

If anyone has useful input it would be appreciated.

Brandon Sanderson / On Feruchemical 'Mistings'
« on: February 22, 2009, 01:53:16 AM »
Obviously this thread is going to have a large amount of SPOILERS.  If you've not read all three Mistborn books you're in for surprises.

Mr. Sanderson has said in the MB3 spoiler thread that, if he does write the next series, there will be no Mistborn and that Feruchemy will have followed a similar path of degeneration.  I don't know if this was supposed to mean that there will be no more full Feruchemists or just that there are now Feruchemical 'Mistings' as well(It would seem odd if the former were the case because you'd think that TLR's breeding program would have caused it after a thousand years.).
Either way, just like Allomantic Mistings, I would think that Feruchemical ones would get names that matched their abilities.
Being as presumptuous as I am, I have decided to post a list of names that I like for Feruchemical Mistings.  I think it would be cool for their ""Official"" titles be the name of the metalmind that they can use, but, just like Allomancers, they have a ""Common"" name as well.  That's what I'm here to suggest; here are my names(And quick reference for those that don't remember or can't infer from the names):

Ironmind : Anchor  --  Physical Weight
Steelmind : Sprinter(little_wilson) --  Physical Speed

Tinmind : Afferent(Eerongal)  --  Senses
Pewtermind : Brute  --  Physical Strength

Zincmind : Savant(Inspired by CptSqweky)  --  Mental Speed
Brassmind : Sink(Inspired by douglas)  --  Warmth

Coppermind : Keeper  --  Memories
Bronzemind : Insomniac(little_wilson)  --  Wakefulness

Goldmind : Immortal(CptSqweky)  --  Health
Electrummind :

Aluminummind : Stone -- Pain(Speculation)
Duraluminmind :

Cadmiummind :
Not-Cerrobendmind :

Chromiummind :
Nicrosilmind :

Some of those names are crap, but that's part of the reason that I'm posting it here: To have other people make suggestions for better names.
On top of these names for metalminds, I also came up with names to differentiate between Feruchemical and Allomantic Mistings, as always, I welcome suggestions for changes and whatnot:

Burner - Allomantic Mistings.
Tapper - Feruchemical Mistings.
Misting - Someone that can burn one metal and store in a different one.
(Metal name) Misting - Someone that can burn one metal and store in the same metal.
Full (Metal name) Misting - Someone that can burn one metal and store in all of them.

The other metal's abilities are not listed here for the rather obvious reason that Mr. Sanderson has yet to tell us what the other metals do Feruchemically.  I remember him saying in his LiveJournal entry for the Allomancy poster that, if it was popular, he'd produce one for Feruchemy and Hemalurgy as well.  That would help a lot.
Anyway, tell me what you think, suggest any names where you think they would be better, wildly speculate about what the other metals do Feruchemically, etc.
And always remember to think about what kind of special names there may be if a Feruchemical Misting is also an Allomantic Misting of the same metal.  What would be the name of a Pewtermind that was also a Pewterarm?  Interesting things to think about...
