In the Mistborn books Sanderson has said that in the Mistborn books all of the Lord Ruler's Final Empire consisted in the northern hemisphere of the planet.  He has hinted that he will tell us (likely in the Alloy of Law) what had gone on in the southern hemisphere.

Wouldn't it be interesting if it turned out that on the southern hemisphere it was the land where Warbreaker or one of the other Cosmere book locations took place?  That would put at least two of his books not just in the same universe, but on the same planet.

It would be interesting, and a pretty cool twist.  On the other hand, it doesn't really fit with what we know about the worlds.  For starters, Brandon has said that the three Metallic Arts manifest on the other side of the world as well.  Also, we know the names of the various worlds in the Cosmere, and only Mistborn occurs on Scadriel.

If you're going to Polaris or Comic-Con, there will be a special Alloy of Law giveaway...
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

Since they all take place in the Cosmere.  What if a Feruchemist ate some Lerasium, then went and bought enough biochromatic breath to reach the 10th heightening, and then randomly got picked to become an Elantrian?

p.s. I haven't read WoK yet.

He'd become* Hoid. :P

* After also picking up every WoK magic system, plus all the as yet unpublished ones from other worlds.

That's nothing, what if a Feruchemist, by some twist of fate, somehow found himself with the power of two Shards, which together have the power to create worlds. Wait... That sounds familiar...

Yeah, but at least those are the powers that he already had access to, via his genetics.  Nobody is quite certain what a normal person would do mixing completely different magics.
