    Interview: Aug 4th, 2011

    Question

    This is for Isaac, actually. What are you working on right now? Are you working with anything with Brandon or with someone else?

    Isaac Stewart

    Yeah, I am. (To Brandon: can I tell them about the Feruchemical—? Brandon: Yeah.) I just finished a version of the Feruchemical table. If you’ve seen the Allomantic table, it's very similar to that. New frames. I actually created it a different way, and I think it looks nicer than the other one. It makes me want to go back and redo the other one (laughter) but it also has new symbols and some new information.

    Brandon Sanderson

    That'll debut in the Mistborn RPG, and then we'll sell prints.

    Interview: Aug 4th, 2011

    Question

    Just real quick: the short that's in the RPG, the short story. Is that ever going to be available outside the RPG?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Maybe eventually. The idea is that we gave it to them exclusively for a certain period; I don't know how long the period is. It's probably a couple of years. The idea being: the short story is there as a goodie for the RPG. You know, the RPG guys, RPGs are not big sellers. These are an independent company making it because they love it. It's not their day job. They all have other day jobs. Though, we wanted to put something in there that would attract people's attention to look at it and be interested in it. They will eventually, probably be available elsewhere. If you can read other languages, it'll probably be in the translations of Alloy of Law. But that's only if you want to read it in translation.

    Interview: Aug 4th, 2011

    Question

    So, apart from writing the short story for the Mistborn RPG, how involved were you in developing it?

    Brandon Sanderson

    The Mistborn RPG? I sat down in several brainstorming sessions with them and gave them all of my notes from the world and now they have sent me what they have come up with and it's actually half rules, half world book, is the idea. Now I'm going to go through and revise it to make sure there's nothing wrong with it. But, you know, I did a lot of brainstorming with them, but they're the game designers so I let them kind of design the game as they wanted to.

    Interview: Aug 1st, 2011

    Brandon Sanderson

    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.

    Interview: Jul, 2009

    Chaos2651

    Can you tell us what the rest of the Feruchemical and Hemalurgic powers are? Since, you know, you won't be writing in the Mistborn world for many years, and those Feruchemical and Hemalurgic Tables might not even come into existence if the Allomantic Metals one doesn't sell. Pretty please?

    Brandon Sanderson

    I will release this eventually. I'm still tweaking the powers—their names, and how they function—and so I'd rather hold off on revealing anything specific right now. We might include them in the RPG, though.

    Chaos2651

    When is the Table of Allomantic Metals coming out?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Printer emailed me today for final confirmation. Should be very soon now.

    Interview: Aug 31st, 2011

    Reddit AMA 2011 (Verbatim)

    leaf25 ()

    Can you give us any updates on the (hopefully) upcoming Mistborn game? Same question for the movie deal you twitted about quite some time back.

    Brandon Sanderson

    Which one? Pen and paper RPG or video game?

    Pen and paper is done. Coming out this fall, probably. I am hoping to go to Gencon next year to support it.

    Video Game deal has not been signed yet, but contract negotiations are done and we should sign soon. I can give more details then.

    Movie deal: An actor for Vin has been tentatively attached, though it's very preliminary. Screenplay is done, and I got the latest draft in July. It's quite good.

    crucix ()

    Do you have any plans for companions to any of your book series?

    Brandon Sanderson

    I will do a Stormlight book eventually. There is a Mistborn pen and paper RPG coming out later this year which will cover a lot of that for Mistborn.

    Interview: Aug 31st, 2011

    Reddit AMA 2011 (Verbatim)

    shdwfeather ()

    One of the things I really like about your books is the creative and immersive backdrop that the stories take place in. I know you spend a lot of time (and words!) on the background material for these worlds. Will you ever publish your world-building notes?

    Brandon Sanderson

    I'd like to someday. The reason I haven't yet is because many of them contain cosmere-related notes that give huge spoilers for other books. I could just expunge those, but I feel it better to let things grow a little more and then do some worldbooks. The Mistborn RPG coming out this year is half worldbook, though, and has a lot of setting information from my notes.

    Interview: Dec 19th, 2011

    Brandon Sanderson

    The biggest news for this week is that the long-awaited Mistborn Adventure Game tabletop RPG from Crafty Games is now available in ebook form. The hardcover and paperback copies will come next month or so, and we are planning a local release party for those once we have more details on the exact date. Anyway, I do hope to be able to share more thoughts on the exciting release of this game once I can take a breather from writing A Memory of Light (that deadline is coming up fast, and I'm very hard at work on it).

    Interview: Jul 2nd, 2011

    Marc Aplin

    Okay, I'll go on to the next question. In January 2010 it was, you said that a Mistborn film had been optioned. There was also a game in progress. What's the state of this, I know a lot of people were excited to hear about it.

    Brandon Sanderson

    The Mistborn RPG game is a go, for sure. We've got cover art, they're trying to release it by GenCon—which is a big gaming convention this year—and have it available for purchase by fall. It is certainly happening; it's 100% now. The film—the producers have finished the screenplay, which is quite good; I'm very pleased with it. And they are pitching the film in Hollywood right now. We don't know what will happen, what will come of it, but they are pitching it in Hollywood right now.

    Interview: Nov 6th, 2012

    Question

    How involved were you in the development of the adventure game?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Medium level, in that I would go and say, “This is the type of role playing game I like,” and then they would come back and say, “Here’s the mechanics we're thinking of using.” and I’d say, “Hey, that’s cool...” So I did get to sign off on it.

    Interview: Sep 4th, 2014

    Question

    Is there anything in the works right now roleplaying-wise for any of your other works?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Not yet, the response to the Mistborn rpg has been good so I do think we'll do something eventually but right now we just want to support that. It takes a lot of effort to keep one of these supported, because they make it but we have to read everything and talk about continuity and stuff. Maybe eventually.

    Interview: Jan 6th, 2015

    Question

    Any more [pen and paper] RPGs in the works?

    Brandon Sanderson

    I know that Crafty is planning another supplement to go in line with the new [Mistborn Adventures] books I'm releasing, because there are various things that are important to the new books that would make another good supplement.
