sorry for the double post, but....

ok, i made mah dood. He's currently level 4, named Lord Blackthorne, just got him out of the tutorial. I'll try to level him a bit when i get a chance, but other than that, hit me up when you plan on playing next, and if i'm available, i'll go for it.

Note that weekends are usually the best time for me to game, since i get up for work at 6 AM central time, and get home about 6 PM and go to bed around 10 or so, so weekdays are a bit filled, generally, but weekends im usually up for anything whenever. So hit me up on facebook, or steam, or aim or something, and we'll get this party down and dirty.

I should get a controller, that would be so much better.

My friend is ice tank and I'm a mech-head (Not sure the name of the class and/or what specs I get lol).  We're only level 5, we're being slow. xD

I also have a fire tank that's level 5 or so.

This game is very different, the whole class system is slightly confusing.

Until you hit level 10, you're all DPS spec. At level 10 you can change your spec to whatever the specialization is for your power set. Gadgets special role is a controller, so you get bonuses to crowd control and such. Ice and fire are tank spec.

You can change your spec at will (when out of combat), changing spec gives you different inherent bonuses, and your skills will say things like "When in X spec, you get blah blah blah". The tree you're most specialized in also gets you  different bonuses.

Also: That's good, i dont know when i'll get to creating a character, sometime this week maybe, but if youre taking it slow i should be able to catch up quickly.

Cry for Blood - Villian.

So far it's different. . . . I dislike the controls, I assume they work more comfortably on the PS3 than they do on the computer.

I use a controller, i tried keyboard, but controller feels WAY more natural with its gameplay. I'll start up a villain on that server then, when i get a chance, and we'll play together sometime.

Edit: also, what power set/spec are ya? I'll try to make something that complements you.

Ummm the only thing worse than pork is raw pork. Disgusting.

If you look, the final product looks cooked, even though they dont say to cook it.

You can find some of the unpublished stuff if you dig deep enough.

Sample chapters of Scribbler.
Sample chapters from two versions of "Dragonsteel: The Liar of Partinel"
ILL for Dragonsteel if it can be found.

As far as becoming an Alpha reader, it can happen, though it is a very long process.

I am a beta reader and that happened after having been reading Brandon's books, emailing him, and going to a lot of signings and such for about 5 years.

you dont count. I still hold to my theory that you know essentially what brandon is writing even before he himself does.

But yeah, getting access to that stuff is far from an overnight process. One that i have no where near the moxy to set down the path of doing, so i just content myself with hanging around here, chatting it out, and poking fun at peter when he comes around.

OT: ArgentSun = same ArgentSun from Wowhead forums?

On topic though, Brandon posts stuff in his blogs? When I Googled "Liar of Partinel," the one of the results' file was located under .../drafts/warbreaker, if I am not mistaken. An odd place for exclusive material - when I registered for the forums, I was under the impression that the mere act of registering would grant me access to a hidden section of the site/forum, where stuff like that would be kept in an archive.

Perhaps we can do that on the forums manually?

Nah, there's no public repository of any of his unpublished works as far as i'm aware. In fact, most of that stuff is stuff that's just dished out by him personally to people he knows and trusts, but he occasionally talks about and posts snitchs and snatches here and there, though less so in recent days. I don't know how much you can find just by looking around these forums, but you may be able to find bits and pieces. You aren't likely to be able to find the entire original unpublished work around here anywhere.

Also, yes, Scribbler is going to be called  "The Rithmatist".

Everything Else / Re: Mistborn vs. Asha'man
« on: January 13, 2011, 03:11:55 PM »
At first i was thinking Ashaman all the way but control on the one power is tenuous at best, if the mistborn was skilled at soothing/rioting perhaps they could get the Ashaman to give in to the temptation and let Saidin win and destroy themselves.  a Duralumin/Zinc or Duralumin/Brass combo would do the trick i think.

I dunno about that. Just about every time we see the PoV of a man channeling (granted, that's mostly just rand) it talks his emotions seeming distant, and seemingly belonging to someone else.

Based on that, i would assume rioting/soothing wouldn't do a whole lot to a channeler

though, that could be because of the flame and the void trick, but i honestly think its more related to (male) channeling than not

I believe the database was restored from a backup. But hardly anything was lost, if anything was lost at all, it appears. Well,  that's my impression, since I don't remember what day the forum went down.

Yeah, there was some sort of database issue, but that's the extent of my knowledge. I only know that because thats what it was saying just before it went into maintainence mode.

Also, it went down october 19th. The only reason i know is because the night before, on the 18th, i was having some issues with it saying the database error stuff, and i contacted Jade (and thus have the chat history to look back on) to let him know, and he got back to me and said it looked fine. Then a few hours later it went back down again and shortly went into maintenance mode.

(also: shouldn't this be in like the general section, and not brandon's section? Just sayin')

sorry for the double post, but since it's been almost 4 months since that previous post AND since it's still front page (so technically not a dead thread) and i had something to announce, i figured it could be forgiven, since this post isn't in line with the previous post at all, however.....

i would like to announce that me an my friend have successfully competed in the ludum dare jam!

and here is the time lapse video of the whole 3 day weekend.

Wow, I didn't pick up on this at all from reading Sanderson's books! This makes me even more fascinated by his stories, which I didn't think was possible.

If I may ask; where did this information come from? Cosmere and Adonalsium? Were those mentioned in his books? Did Sanderson talk about this in an interview or blog post?

EDIT: Never mind, I found a post about it :)

Yeah, most of what we know is from what's been teased out of brandon through interviews, but there's subtle bits in the books than you can link together to figure some bits out.

One major clue is hoid, since he's in pretty much all of 'em in some capacity.

Oh no!  He's on to our antics.  Quick scatter!  (Hides behind potted plant).  RAFO

*Starts throwing things from hiding at peter to get him to go away so we can once again talk about him in secrecy*

So, TWG, now that you're back with us, we need to hold this as a belated holiday! Who agrees and what is everyone's opinion on when?
