Haha you guys are a fun lot. I browsed through the FAQ's section and didn't really find an answer to my question I am about to put down. And well...this might not be the right section to ask such a question but you guys look like you're a fun lot and prob won't harass me too much about postin it here...but what is the EXP thing about...the weapons the skills...and what not? Haha do we actually get to fight? Crazy...never hung out on a message board like this. But...yeah just to keep my post in the right section...

EUOL...man...you really kicked me in the nutz when you killed off Kell! Haha I mean it had to happen, and it foreshadowed it quite a bit throughout the story I guess but still!!! Yeah...the way he went down was pretty pimp though. You did an awesome job on that. Killin the shirt out of...Bellacar? I forget what that inquisitor's name was...(I'm lazy...didn't feel like flippin through the last 30 pages to find out what Kar said his name was)...But then Kell gets a stick rammed through his chest and then a pimp slap from the Lord Ruler...sheesh torn his face off. Anyyywayzz...you will never hear the end of my praise for this book...haha later guyz.

HA!! Bet you didn't expect me to cast back the perfect spell to counter that one did you!?!?....wait...what? I only saved for 5 damage?....
SHAT!...Alright well...we'll do that again in about 1600 posts...Haha..
Anywayz that's rather entertaining. Anyone feel like explainin it a bit? Or at least throwin a link at me so I can read up a bit. Ahh shoot..well again to keep this post in the right thread!...

EUOL...The cover art for Mistborn. I was wondering who the Obligator was on the front cover? No real obligator really stood out I guess in the book besides her Dad...but he really didn't have a part in this book. So...why did you choose to have a random Obligator on the front cover? And not a kick ass Inquisitor or even the Lord Ruler himself? I love it regardless of who it is cause it's probably just about the kewlest cover art ever.
But yeah did anyone else kind of start thinking of the huge badass in Silent Hill games and the movie? When it comes to the Inquisitor that is. I just imagined them like being huge and having those spikes in their eyes. Haha just kind of seemed familiar with the huge ugly dude that drags along the huge ass cloud lookin sword and has this huge pointed weight lookin thing on his head that kinda looks like an anvil. Haha I'm just rambling but yeah anywayz. I'm gonna get ready to head off to work....get back at me on this crap guys....later.

I finished the book and it delivered - big time.  Very well developed world, deep characters, a clever magic system, and a captivating plot.  I'm looking foward to the next one.

The ending did seem a bit rushed. It flowed perfectly until Kelsier's death and then the whole universe got turned upside down so fast I barely had time to process it.  

Don't get me wrong, using Kelsier as a catalyst for revolt was brilliant.  In addition to making perfect sense. his death threw out a "nobody is safe" warning that will add massive amounts of dramatic tension to the next books.  However, the entire city in revolt, Marsh's reappearence as an Inquisitor, The death of Lord Ruler, Elend installed as King, Marsh as head of the Church. It seemed as if there could have been a whole book on those events (not that the aftermath doesn't lend itself to novels worth of material :) ) and it was a bit much for me to take in.

Overall a fantastic read.

So this is probably more known to other people...but I however am oblivious of the answer...so I was wondering EUOL when can "those other people that don't have special connections or those who can't sneak in at night and steal a copy from Sprigg" gonna see the next book out? I like everyone else I'm sure, am holding my breath for it to come out so I can read it...

Oh and to let you know I saw here on the site that the best price for the book was $13.59...well I bought mine the week it came out when I stopped by the bookstore so I could pick it up to read for on the way to cedar pointe and I spent $32.00 on mine!! So chyeah...that's dedication. Haha...laterz gang.

Alright, I can't take it anymore. Sorry EUOL, I know you don't like us harassing people in your part of the board, but this really needs to be said.

Linternet, quoting that whole post was the worst waste of space, and other people's patience I have ever seen. Do not quote something unless it is necessary for other people to understand what you are talking about. And if you have to quote something that long, then abbreviate it.

Corrupted Terrismen, Kelsier will never, ever, ever be "pimp." No. Bad.  Also, nobody wants to hear about your "nutz," you can't kill the "nutz" out of something, and Kelsier did not get "pimp-slapped." When you say those kinds of things, it annoys a lot of people around here. Many, if not most, of the people on this site have degrees in something to do with literature, so when you talk like that, it is like nails on a chalkboard, and you will be mocked for it for as long as you continue. Also, I am sure EUOL is glad that you liked his book, but he probably doesn't like it so much when you ask for things like his address, and joke about breaking into his house. You are probably just joking, but it isn't something that is going to make you very well-liked around here, so knock it off.

Haha alright then. I've been reprimanded...won't let it happen again. Spose the obvious reason for my choice of language is blamed on my youth and the society that I live in...but honestly...it couldn't have been that offensive, you just were bored I believe Archon. Anywayz it's in the past and over with. Thanks for letting me know though so that future occurences don't surface!! See...I can talk sophisticated when I need to...I am afterall a Terrisman steward...heh later guyz.

Linternet, welcome to a Brandon Sanderson book. In a Brandon Sanderson book there's a long deliberate build of tension and then in the last 40 pages everything goes crazy. He does this on purpose just to tick you off. :)

(Book 2's original ending was uncharacteristically slow. But word is this has been corrected.)

(And CorruptedTerrisman, you could at least put the battle in a smaller font.)

I wasn't offended, I was annoyed. And you can't really play the youth card on me, since I am only 18. Also, when you are trying to be sophisticated, don't substitute "z" for "s." You lose. Don't pass go, and don't collect $200. Try again. We don't expect people to be geniuses, but we do expect basic punctuation, an attempt at spelling, and some thought behind what you are trying to say. Feel free to take another swing at it.

On a brighter note, Linternet, that was well done. You handled yourself better than most people normally do, in that situation.

Haha alright I smalled down my post on the fight a bit there for you guys, it was taking up a bit of room I guess. Anyways didn't mean to throw ya off topic Archon, posting the bashing of my choice of spelling and grammar in this section of the forum had to be even more annoying for you than the previous mentioned hack job of grammar. I won't argue though, I'll just change up my spelling a bit to satisfy everyone. But alright...nothing to see here...let's continue on with the praise of Sanderson's Mistborn!
Again...sorry guyz...no harm no foul.

I agree with what Archon said, and it especially doesn't fly with me because I'm fourteen and I have *never* ever typed like that.
