Here are the rules Allomancy that I came up with for GURPS.

Allomancy    [358 points]

Physical metals

Iron and Steel      [70 points]

Iron (external)

An Allomancer burning Iron is able to Pull on nearby metals. This can allow them to make metallic objects that weigh less than they do to fly through the air toward them. For metallic objects which weigh more than they do, this can cause them to be pulled toward the object. It was generally assumed that an Allomancer could not Pull on metals that pierce or are otherwise contained in the body of another Allomancer (e.g., ingested metals), however it can be achieved by an exceedingly powerful Allomancer.
A Misting who can only burn Iron is known as a "Lurcher".

Steel (external)      
An Allomancer burning Steel is able to "Push" on nearby metals. This can allow them to make metallic objects that weigh less than they do to fly through the air away from them (using coins, for instance, as weapons). For metallic objects which weigh more than they do, this can cause them to be pushed away from the object. It was generally assumed that an Allomancer could not Push on metals that pierce or are otherwise contained in the body of another Allomancer (e.g., ingested metals), however it can be achieved by an exceedingly powerful Allomancer.
A Misting who can only burn Steel is known as a "Coinshot".

Effect:

Steelpush & Ironpull:   [20 points]
Telekinesis 20 (Only on metal -40%); (Cannot Push or Pull things that are heavier then you -50%); (Can only push or pull in a straight line -50%); (Instantaneous +20%); (Emanation +50%); (Selectivity +10%); Energy Cost: 1 energy per minute. (Costs Energy -5%); (Can only be fueled by Steel or Iron Reserve -5%); (Allomancy -10%); (May use Godlike Extra Effort +0%)

Iron & Steel Reserve:   [38 points]
Energy Reserve +10: Extra Fatigue +10 (Does not Recharge -70%); Allomancy (-10%)   [8 points]
Regeneration: 10 Energy per second (1 second of Use w/ Fast Reload -80%)   [30 points]

Detect Metal:   [12 points]
Detect Metal: (Vague -50%); Allomancy (-10%)   [12 points]

Tin (internal)   [68 points]

An Allomancer burning Tin is able to enhance all five of their senses. A major flaw of burning Tin is that if a sudden loud noise or bright light appears it can render an Allomancer stunned for a short time. Mistings burning Tin are often used as lookouts and scouts because they can see in near-darkness.
A Misting who can only burn Tin is known as a "Tineye".

Effect:

Enhanced Senses:
Alertness +10   [30 points]
Energy Cost: 1 energy per Hour. (Costs Energy -5%); (Can only be fueled by Tin Reserve -5%); (Allomancy -10%); (Maybe become stunned by loud sounds, bright light, etc. -20%); (May use Godlike Extra Effort +0%)

Tin Reserve:   [38 points]
Energy Reserve +10: Extra Fatigue +10 (Does not Recharge -70%); Allomancy (-10%)   [8 points]
Regeneration: 10 Energy per second (1 second of Use w/ Fast Reload -80%)   [30 points]





Pewter (internal)   [178 points]

An Allomancer burning Pewter is able to greatly enhance their physical capabilities. While burning pewter, an Allomancer can fight or perform physical labor longer than any normal person, and is also many times stronger than his or her normal self; this applies not only to their muscle strength, but to the strength of their bones, skin, etc. This enhanced strength also allows an Allomancer to shrug off wounds that would kill or incapacitate a normal person. Pewter-burning also provides an Allomancer with an increased sense of balance and vastly increased speed and dexterity. An Allomancer performing a "pewter drag" can run for many hours at speeds up to approximately that of a galloping horse. This is extremely draining on the Allomancer's body and will require the Allomancer to burn pewter after completing the pewter drag itself, just to keep the person's body from collapsing in near-death exhaustion.

One danger for someone burning Pewter is when carrying something that they normally couldn't carry and they run out of the metal, the object they are carrying will crush them, causing serious injury. Another danger is that an Allomancer who shrugged off earlier wounds could succumb to said wounds when they run out of Pewter to burn.

A Misting who can only burn Pewter is known as a "Pewterarm" or "Thug".

Effect:

Pewter Reserve:   [38 points]
Energy Reserve +10: Extra Fatigue +10 (Does not Recharge -70%); Allomancy (-10%)   [8 points]
Regeneration: 10 Energy per second (1 second of Use w/ Fast Reload -80%)   [30 points]

Enhanced Physical Abilities:   [140 points]
+5 ST [50 pts]
+5 HT [50 pts]
+5 DX [60 pts]
+5 DR [15 pts]
Energy Cost: 1 Energy per minute. (Costs Energy -5%); (Can only be fueled by Pewter Reserve -5%); (Allomancy -10%); (May use Godlike Extra Effort +0%)



Mental metals

Brass & Zinc   [10 points]

Zinc (external)

An Allomancer burning Zinc is able to inflame the emotions of those nearby. This can be used to incite riots (hence the name) or to enhance any emotion of the target. An Allomancer can affect a single person or all the individuals in a particular area.

A Misting who can only burn Zinc is known as a "Rioter".

Brass (external)

An Allomancer burning Brass is able to soothe or guide emotions in a particular direction. An Allomancer can affect a single person or all the individuals in a particular area.

A Misting who can only burn Brass is known as a "Soother".

Effect:

Inflame or Soothe Emotions:
Mind Control   [10 points]
(Requires Brass or Zinc -5%); (10 uses w/ Fast Reload -5%); (Allomancy -10%); (May only inflame or soothe emotions. -60%); (May use Godlike Extra Effort +0%)

Copper (internal)   [24 points]

An Allomancer burning copper is able to hide themselves and others from "Seekers" by hiding allomantic vibrations caused by burning metals. The area hidden by a smoker is known as a coppercloud (Hence the name). In strike teams Smokers are extremely helpful to keep from being caught by a Seeker, or a Mistborn burning bronze. In addition, the smoker (but not others within his coppercloud) is immune to emotional allomancy. When using Allomancy, Mistborn will usually burn this metal first before using other metals in order to hide their Allomantic powers from Steel Inquisitors or other Allomancers. Copper burns slowly, so many Mistborn continue to burn copper most if not all of the time.

A Misting who can only burn Copper is known as a "Coppercloud" or "Smoker".

Effect:

Obscure Allomancy:
Obscure Magic +10   [16 points]
(Requires Copper -5%); (10 hours w/ Fast Reload -5%); (Allomancy -10%); (May use Godlike Extra Effort +0%)

Mind shield +10      [8 points]
(Requires Copper -5%); (10 hours w/ Fast Reload -5%); (Untrainable -40%); (Allomancy -10%); (May use Godlike Extra Effort +0%) 
Bronze (internal)   [8 points]

An Allomancer burning Bronze is able to determine if someone else is using Allomancy in the immediate area. With practice, an Allomancer can determine the location of the other Allomancer, which metal the other Allomancer is burning, and to what extent the other Allomancer is burning his or her metal. An extremely powerful Allomancer can penetrate the copperclouds of other Allomancers.

A Misting who can only burn Bronze is known as a "Seeker".

Effect:

Sense Allomancy:
Psi (Allomancy) Sense +10   [8 points]
(Requires Bronze -5%); (10 hours w/ Fast Reload -5%); (Allomancy -10%); (May use Godlike Extra Effort +0%)
Who the hell is interrupting my Kung Fu!

Nice
 
Yep thugs are going to be expensive however they are built.

It's hard for me to get my head around the concept one Misting [thug] costing more than almost all the other mistings combined but at this point I don't see a way around it.
