Brandon Sanderson / Re: Favourite Minor Character
« on: October 18, 2010, 04:14:10 PM »
Heh, maybe that will be Renarin's secret power. Since he's took sickly to fight himself... "Go, Rotspren!"

I agree about Shallan unintentionally doing more bad than good and she wasn't exactly my favorite character, but I still wouldn't want her killed off. She's pretty much our best resource of learning more about Soulcasting and Shadesmar, and I'd love to see what happens to her family and if she uses her powers to help them. Usually I'm all for killing people off GRRM style, but the characters in WoK are just so good... even if I don't like them, I want to know more about them and their motives before I would want them dead.

Haha, now that's a good way to put it! You're making me hungry though...

I have a feeling that Amaram really isn't going to be the guy we all want to hate. It seemed like he genuinely regretted his decisions, and he probably legitimately believed he had a responsibility to do what he did.  I'm definitely curious to see what Brandon does with his character, because there is a lot of potential with that guy beyond "scumbag who deserves to die".
That's how I imagined him as well, and why I kept hoping we'd see him again before the book was over.

Brandon Sanderson / Re: Bridge 4 Crew T-Shirts

I'd love to see some of these designs! I'm all for the silhouette ones, with the shield full or arrows or the crew carrying the bridge. I think the serious ones would work better than the funny, even though there were some really funny ideas. I thought the "Have Bridge, Will Side Carry" was absolutely hilarious, though it wouldn't make a lot of sense on a t-shirt.

I thought there had been some other mention of Gavilar learning to read passages from the book on his own, from Dalinar or Navani. Could be wrong, though.
No, AFAIK that was a misconception of Dalinar's beacause Szeth had written the meassage on the wall in the first person which led Dalinar to assume that he (Gavilar) had written it himself.

Hmmm, interesting. I must have missed that, so Szeth actually wrote it? I keep hoping he'll find redemption and be more of a "good guy", but there seems to be enough hints that it could happen.

You know how it says, somewhere, that one of the three viewpoint characters would ruin the world?  (I don't remember where, but that means that either Dalinar, Shallan, or Kaladin are going to do something really stupid.)
It's in the text on the back of the book, and it says "one of the four will destroy us", the four being Dalinar, Shallan, Kaladin and Szeth, it doesn't say who the "us" are, it doesn't necessarrily mean destroy the world.
I've been trying to figure that one out as well. Honestly, even after reading the book, I could see it taken ways where any of the four could either "save" or "destroy" us.

I was hoping to see Amaran show up at some point. It said he was coming to the Shattered Plains, right? Really looking forward to see how that little reunion pans out.

Video Games / Re: Mistborn RPG video game

Oh man... Assassin's Creed + Mistborn. Holy crap.

I would want to shoot myself if they turned Mistborn into an MMO, but it could make an awesome single player game. I don't really ever see either happening anyway, so I'm okay with just imagining everything in my head.

The most memorable interlude for me was actually the fisherman (though I don't remember his name), with their carefree lifestyle and the girl that wanted to marry him. I loved reading about all the different cultures of Roshar that we'll hopefully see more of in the sequels.

Its amazing how many people I have recommend Brandon's books to have been reluctant at first to do so. But I push and I push and I push, so they relent a little, read the first chapter, but by then they are 100% hooked, and then spend the next days just reading his books and doing nothing else.
I've been pestering my wife for a while now to read something of his to see if she likes it, and promised she'll read Mistborn soon. If she doesn't like them, that's grounds for divorce right? ;D

My first Brandon book was Mistborn after I started getting back into reading a couple years ago with A Song of Ice and Fire, and then it kept showing up in the "similar products" on Amazon on other books I liked. I blasted through them and all of his other books faster than I've ever read before, and then the annotations on the website really solidified him as my favorite author ever.

Yeah that entire scene was seriously Dalinar's crowning moment of awesome for the book, he finally knew what to do, and it was so satisfying when it happened. 
Mmmhmm! At first I was all :o until I realized what was going on, and Dalinar somehow became even more awesome than he was before. Can't wait to see what happens next (though we don't have much of a choice).

Obviously I love them all, but Mistborn is the current winner. It's hard to say which of the three was my favorite because I read them one after another in such a short time, but I can easily see SA becoming my favorite once we're a few books in.

I too didn't care for Shallan at first. It was like..."Oh, hi again Sarene". Turning point for her was definitely the night in the alley, everything after that was much more interesting.
