The certain boards costing fell points was an April fools joke a couple years ago if I remember correctly.

If you pay attention, Sprigs third or fourth post has the title "Fell Point blah blah - APRIL FOOLS".

This topic was rezzed and is really serving no purpose at the moment though.

That's because we got hacked a while back and the only backup for the styling Sprig had was on the computer he had originally used to put up the joke.  He hasn't had time to change the css to get rid of it, and it's not like it really affects us being able to view the boards.

Shaggy sees. BUT–it might defer others from even trying certain threads.

I'm surprised that noone has said anything about having a Mistborn game that tells the story inbetween the second and third book. From the point of a game it gives you alot to work with as its only briefly mentioned in the final book.

And about classes in your game miyabi, an idea about how to let your character progress could be to let the "good" guys become savant mistings and the "bad" guys to get spikes.

But you would need different levels of 'savantness' to combat different numbers of spikes, though.

Ha ha.  I haven't been able to work on this, though I'm thinking about starting to look into the project again this summer. :]  That's a big maybe though.

("spoilers," so called, for Warbreaker below)

If some company suddenly has the urge to do a bunch of BS video games, Warbreaker would just be amazing.  The color-based magic system lends itself perfectly to the creation of beautiful game environments akin to Okami, Braid, LostWinds, Flower, etc.  Plus, Vasher's Nightblood-Ownage Mode that drains Breath Points seems like it was meant to be a game mechanic (at least that's what I thought, the first time I read it).

Right now I can't imagine an Elantris game being fun, though.  Anyone else remember the wand-waving rigmarole the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone game had?  Seems like Elantris would just be that, over and over again.   :-\

It wouldn't be so bad if it was on a touch screen platform such as the DSi.

I think Elantris would be great if they made it in the style of Baldur's Gate II or Planescape Torment. A story and dialogue driven rpg.

Or they could make an adventure game in the style of Monkey Island.

I also think Miyabi's idea of a touch screen platform game would work quite well.

Now I'm going to be awake all night thinking about how awesome this would be.

Naw Elantris would have to be more like Resident Evil, where you play the Zombie!
You can always get what you want if you never count the cost.

Yes, acting like a brain obssessed zombie totally won't mean the torch for you and all of your Elantrian friends.  But why would you act like a zombie anyway?  No one goes into Elantris.  Unless you're going to attack Serene.
