Crafty Games to Publish Mistborn RPG

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CRAFTY GAMES TO PUBLISH MISTBORN RPG
Creators of Spycraft 2.0 to develop RPG Adaptation of Epic Fantasy
Trilogy by Wheel of Time Author Brandon Sanderson

September 7, 2008 PORTLAND, OR: Crafty Games LLC has reached an
agreement with popular fantasy writer and author of the final volume
of the Wheel of Time, Brandon Sanderson, to publish a roleplaying game
based on his epic fantasy trilogy Mistborn. The game will arrive in
2009 and let players create their own exciting adventures in the Final
Empire.

"Mistborn is an enchanting and innovative dark-fantasy series that's
tailor-made for gaming," said Crafty Games partner Alex Flagg. "We're
thrilled at the opportunity to work with Brandon to create a product
capturing the unique magic, action, and intrigue that's made Mistborn
such a hit with fantasy fans across the world."

"I've been a role player for years and I've looked forward to the day
when I could help adapt one of my properties as an RPG setting," said
Brandon Sanderson. "Mistborn is the perfect story for an RPG; the
magic of Allomancy lends itself well to gaming and there are many
untold stories to play out in this world of falling ash and cloaking
mists. Crafty Games is one of the premier independent gaming companies
out there and I'm ecstatic to be working with them!"

"We've got a great relationship with Brandon and he's already working
with us to provide new content created specifically for the RPG,"
added Flagg. "Next year [2009] is going to be a great time for fans of
Brandon, Mistborn, and Crafty alike."
