Brandon Sanderson / Suvudu Vin vs. Quick Ben Final Match
« on: April 06, 2011, 07:22:39 PM »
The final cage match is upon us!  After 32 entrants, it's all up to Vin vs. Quick Ben.  I'm feeling lucky people... my team, Texas A&M, won the Women's BBall tournament last night, and now Vin can win this nerdy fantasy death match!

Brandon Sanderson / Questions in Regarsd to Alloy of Law
« on: April 04, 2011, 09:08:14 PM »
I was hoping that perhaps Peter could pass along to Brandon some of my burning questions in regards to Alloy of Law?  Barring that, maybe we could get an estimate on when/if Brandon will be giving any interviews in relation to Alloy of Law?

Here are my questions.  Other readers feel free to post your questions as well.

1. Can you give us a short description of the main character and his family history?
2. Which characters from previous Mistborn books will be making an appearance in Alloy of Law?
3.  Is the book supposed to be darker or more light hearted than the previous Mistborn novels?
4.  How far has technology come along?  Have automobiles been invented?  How about firearms?

Vin's lead is slowly being whittled down.  She's currently at 53% of the vote.

We need people to go and vote!

A 36 year old guy I work with had a heart attack today.  The ambulance had to come by and take him to the hospital.  I hear he's in critical care, and they don't know 100% if he'll make it.  A lot of us are still in shock about the whole thing.

How is this revalent to Brandon?  Brandon is one of my favorite authors, and I don't want to lose him.  I want him to finish the Stormlight Archive series after all and bring us many more books to come!

What I'm getting at is maybe Brandon should start hitting the gym a bit.  I'm no saint myself, but I recently started seeing a personal trainer at the urging of my g/f.   I see my personal trainer 4 times a week for an hour each day, right on the way home from work.  Not a big deal, and it becomes like habit after a while.  Brandon has the  $$$, get 'er done.  Maybe Peter can drop a subtle hint or two with Brandon?

Not trying to be judgemental, just sayin'.  Health is kind of on my mind today...

I don't know who this Jon Snow guy is, but he sounds like a pansy.  All he has is some dog and a sword.  That and he probably is a jerk!

Vin is losing by 200 votes so far and voting ends Thursday.  C'mon people, we need more people to vote for Vin to win.

Brandon Sanderson / Alloy of Law Information?
« on: January 13, 2011, 09:04:24 PM »
Does anyone have information in regards to the new Mistborn book coming out?  I'd like to know about the characters, setting, new alloys and metals, etc.  Thanks in advance.

Brandon Sanderson / WoK: Making Wishes Out West (*Spoilers*)
« on: October 05, 2010, 07:54:07 PM »
So... apparently in WoK there's something or someone out west that you can visit and make wishes with.  The only catch is that there's a curse associated with the wish. 

What would you guys wish for?  Would you risk the curse?

If it was up to me, and I knew the desolation was coming, I'd wish for a hero to come back from the dead to help us against the blight.  Who knows, mabye I'd get a Herald, Radiant, or even Vin to come back to life to help out. 

However, I bet the more powerful the wish is, the worse the curse is.  I bet if I wished someone back to life, I'd probably die in the process of the wish being completed.

Brandon Sanderson / Timespan for Stormlight Archives? (Spoilers)
« on: October 02, 2010, 05:18:33 PM »
Has anyone asked Brandon what kind of timespan the 10 books of the Stormlight Archives series is going to cover?  I suspect it'll be about a year or two timespan, since the desolation is hanging over everyones' heads, but I'm not 100% sure.

Brandon Sanderson / Authors, Monetary Success and Brandon
« on: October 01, 2010, 08:27:36 PM »
My girlfriend was telling me today that JK Rowling was a billionair from selling Harry Potter books.  I was very skeptical, saying that she had probably made millions, but wasn't a billionaire.  After a bit of research, sure enough, Mrs. Rowling was indeed a billionair, and even more well off monetarily than the Queen of England... go figure.

Not to pry, but is Mr. Sanderson doing well with selling his books?  I know he has released quite a few so far, and they are very popular.  Is he one of the top paid sci-fi/fantasy authors or near the middle or what?  I'm not trying to find out how much money he makes or anything like that, but just how he ranks compared to others in the field.

Brandon Sanderson / Re: Interesting Line by Hoid in tWoK
« on: September 14, 2010, 04:43:13 PM »
I'm on to something!  What if Hoid is Adonalsium?!   Hoid lost his powers some how a long time ago, and is going around to the different worlds trying to help people while at the same time get his powers back.  He has some huge and complicated plan he is working on.

Do books usually move down in position after initially debuting on the New York Times Bestsellers List?  Is there a chance the WoK could move up to the #1 position?

Brandon Sanderson / Re: WoK: Bridge Crews & Bridges
« on: September 08, 2010, 07:11:11 PM »
I think the bridges are pretty long (200'+?) and are set down before a chasm and then pushed across to create a path to cross the chasm.  Don't the bridges require 26+ bridgemen to carry?

Why don't the other shards try and get Sazed, then gang up on Odium to take him out? 

Also, maybe Odium is holding is holding more than one shard as well.

Oh, I know who you need to put in spot number 5:  Brightlord Roshone, the bastard that conscripted Kaladin's brother, a little kid, just to be mean.

Great idea!  Done!
