    Today's Warbreaker annotation covers the epilogue. There's just one annotation left, folks. The Warbreaker html version is also now completely uploaded.

    This week's Writing Excuses podcast has another of our microcasting episodes. Mary, Howard, Dan, and I fielded questions from people on Twitter and answered them briefly. We discussed the following topics:

    * How do you hold the whole story in your head when it's a thousand pages long?
    * What steps do you use when creating a character?
    * As an outliner, when do you start putting in the details?
    * How do you patch plot holes?
    * How do you come up with names?
    * Is there one writing skill you'd like to get better at?
    * Writing groups: what do you look for?

    Now for the big announcement. Crafty Games' Mistborn Adventure Game tabletop RPG's cover art has been revealed, and they're running a preorder special from August 4th through 7th. The RPG comes out in November, but you can preview it at Gen Con this weekend if you're lucky enough to be attending. The book's many illustrations, including the cover, come from artist Ben McSweeney, who also provided illustrations for The Way of Kings and The Alloy of Law.

    The book also includes the Kelsier short story that I mentioned back during the Mistborn 2 annotations. Some readers have been clamoring for this for years, so if you want to find out about Kelsier's training with his master Gemmel, pick up the RPG.
