Oh, Lord. Apologies for the necropost, but there needs to be a tutorial on how to write in Alethi now. This thread is pure gold.

Bridge 4: Sitting Ducks since 1147
Saw this idea and felt compelled to pull a draft together with ShirtMockup. Somebody mentioned bloodspattered text earlier in the thread -- I ran with that idea, as well.

I seem to remember a 17th Shard thread for these shirts, too... I'll poke my head in over there.

or a bumper sticker with "Keep honking for just 10 more heartbeats..."?
Oh, dear Lord. I would buy one of those in an instant.

Actually, wait. Do I count as an Omega reader if I've read what BS has posted of Scribbler and Liar?

Ah, thank God for that. I've always typed something ridiculous like dyi for small vowels.

Quite a few names in Mistborn would translate terribly to Japanese, when you think about it.
Vin = Bin,
Kelsier = Kerushia (Or Kerushie, if you follow the "correct" pronunciation),
Straff = Tsurafu,
Beldre = Berudore,
Sazed = Seizeddo
Lestibournes = Resuttobounzo,
and so on.

Hah, you may have found something, there. I can't get to my copy of HoA now, but if somebody could quote the passage, then we might be able to substantiate this.

If he did cause the Shattering, and he is trying to repair it, then suddenly I love his character a whole lot more. A man with the power to kill gods, travelling worlds to make amends for his past. Wonderful.

I could not even find a webpage for the company that optioned mistborn. Looks like a small startup.
Once more, in BS's words: "They have great staff, they have great funding, they don't have access."

Does anyone know how the option process works? I think these development companies basically develop a script and a storyboard then try to sell it to a studio. Is that how it works?
That's essentially it, unless a studio picks up an option directly (like Dreamworks did with Alcatraz and Universal did with WoT).

Again, in his words, Universal has the rights to WoT and has exercised the option. Similarly, Dreamworks has the rights to Alcatraz at the moment.

He also had updates on the various movie options. In his words:

"Wheel of Time is looking at maybe a 1 in 2 chance of being made, and Alcatraz has about a 1 in 4 or 5 chance. Mistborn is going to be the long shot of long shots - it's like a 1 in 50."

On my way back from the signing now. Will give full report upon returning home.

EDIT: Righto, here's his answer in so many words:

"Ah, I've been asked this before. There are a number of theories, but nobody's really sure, since there haven't really been any opportunities to alloy lerasium with atium. You can choose which one to believe. Most require an understanding of realmatic theory to comprehend, which you need to be a Shard or Splinter to even begin to understand."

I interrupted here to ask if Sazed or Hoid would know, and he - of course - RAFO'd.

"What Lerasium is, is essentially a hack for something like your spiritual DNA. It rewrites what your spiritual self is capable of. So, combined with atium, which allows you a glimpse into the vision of everything - past, present, future - the theories say it could do one of two things. It could either create a substance so volatile that it would have world-ending repercussions, or rewrite your "spiritual DNA" (his phrase, not mine) with atium's power. Is that a vague enough answer?"

During the WoK reading, the phrases "Shard-blade" and "Shard-bearer" popped up - my questions on these were RAFO'd as well.

(I won't go into detail about the chapter he read from, since it will apparently be included in the Warbreaker paperback. We can pick it apart after the paperback's release.)

Does anyone have the slightest idea what the long string of Latin on the mailing list page is all about?

I'm going to the LA signing on Monday to have my beaten, worn, beloved Elantris and Mistborn paperbacks signed. Any Cosmere/WoK questions you all want me to bring along?
