I just finished Mistborn 1 and just joined this forum (this is my first post), but what really annoyed me was that half the time Sazed's (or maybe it's Saze's) name is spelled Saze and half the time it is Sazed.

Saze (one syllable, rhymes with haze and daze) is Sazed's nickname, like Kell is Kelsier's nickname. I know, it's not exactly as clear as it could be.

I'll edit this as I notice typos. I apologize for the repeats of previous posts that I'm bound to make.

Warbreaker, page 23: It says "Vasher passed quietly though the prison", should be "Vasher passed quietly through the prison".
Warbreaker, page 61: It says "He’d didn’t believe in letting food sit around uneaten", should be "He didn't believe in letting food sit around uneaten"
Warbreaker, page 66: It says "but knew that the war hawks", should be "but he knew that the war hawks"
Warbreaker, page 84: It says "drive him compose", should be "drive him to compose"

I believe that should be as *I* notice typos.

Oops... sorry! <ggg>

Perhaps I was emphasizing a certain accent... or something... >_>

Thanks for the catch, haha.

From the Warbreaker PDF on the website "Warbreaker_hardcover_1st_ed.pdf"

Page 502.
"Vivenna nodded, turning back to the arena. The priests were withdrawing. "Where are they going?"
"To their gods," Lightsong said. "To seek the Will of the Pantheon in formal vote."

She was taking to Vasher not Lightsong. I don't think she ever talked to Lightsong.

P.S. Very enjoyable book. I haven't laughed so much in a long time.

That Lightsong error has been fixed.

I asked Brandon about the inquisitor spike count. He says that how many spikes the basic ones had depends on how many Mistings were found to use in their creation. Not all of them have all the powers. However, a basic Inquisitor has from 9 to 11 spikes. We may clarify that in the text.

Do we know if the end of TGS when it mentions Rand putting his face on his "hands" been cleared up.... is it a typo or not?

I'm on the fence on that one.  It says early in the book that Rand still thinks of his hands in the plural, despite having lost one.  In his POV, it may not be a mistake.


I asked Brandon this in Dallas and he said it was a mistake.

With the Mercystar typos, if she's wearing orange OR yellow I'm pretty sure it's fine because doesn't Lightsong say those are both of her colors?
I believe so. At least, that ishow I remember it.

Hero of Ages paperback, page 622: I've found two possible typos.
At the end of the first full paragraph: "He was hoping to discover something new in the things men were telling him." This sounds like Sazed is listening to men in general. Should it be "the men" or "these men," or perhaps "the kandra" or "the First Generation"?
Two paragraphs down from that: "'They created the world,' Sazed said. 'Then left?'" That should all be one sentence, so it should probably read: "'They created the world,' Sazed said, 'then left?'"

Don't know if it has already but corrected, but here it is :

Mistborn 2 (WoA), chapter 32 (or maybe 31, don't have the book to check precisely right now), the assembly is voting to elect Lord Penrod as a chancellor.
It's written that 18 member voted for him, all of skaa, most of the noblemen and only one merchants.
The problem is, all of skaa, it's 8, most of the noblemen, at most seven, and with only one merchants, the result is maximum 16.
Even if all the noblemen voted for, with only one merchant the result would be 17 :P

Hero of Ages chapter 82, page 716 (paperback):
"Men had believed and worshipped for as long as they had existed"

"Worshiped" only has one p.
