Any update on that footage? I'd love to see it.

Still in edits (which isn't happening here at the home office, but rather with a pro who's pitching in). We don't have an ETA for it yet but I have it on the agenda to ping him and see what's what.
So a few months later... any news yet?

Footage was secured and will be transmitted as soon as we can acquire it and get it cut into a suitable format and length.

You should also see a bunch more pics and video from the show. We were well covered this year on multiple fronts. Smiley

More as we have it to report.

BTW, thanks to everyone who attended, helped, or cheered from home. As we mentioned on Facebook last night, this was easily our best show yet!  Grin Cool Grin

The system doesn't seem to be built for nonmagic stunts.  I would just have her choose to gain eidetic memory as a trait at the next opportunity...
Maybe not built for nonmagic stunts, but I'd say they work pretty well within the game... it's all about getting the cost right to keep them balanced.

Yeah... alloys are funny things.  Sure, on a nuclear level there would be copper nuclei interspersed with aluminum nuclei, but they form distinct phases that have physical properties often significantly different than either pure metal.  In allomancy at least, it would seem that the alloyed metal is treated as a separate metal, which would imply that the atomic level isn't what drives the metal properties.  Or perhaps that Brandon isn't a materials scientist, but a (rather good) author.  One of those two.

@Animar: Alloys, even in our world, are not a simple case of mixing one metal into another.
To be fair, he said on the atomic level, and most alloys are just suspensions on the atomic level, not separate chemicals. It's a fair assertion on his part (and my biggest stumbling block to understanding how it actually differentiates between them.

They're really closer to solutions than suspensions.

I guess... Maybe when Brandon gets around to Alloy of Law annotations we'll learn more. I really should have asked him at gencon...

@Animar: Alloys, even in our world, are not a simple case of mixing one metal into another.  So there's really no reason that the copper nuclei in duralumin would behave as if they were copper the metal.  In universe example: all of the allomantic alloys act differently than a mix of the two metals would.  Burning bronze is not the same as burning copper and burning tin.

I had completely forgotten that alloys of aluminum were also referred to in AoL.  Looks like my gut decision was correct at least.  I hadn't seen anything about chromium and nicrosil though... why are we assuming that they're inert?  Because they're also "enhancement" metals?

I'm not sure alloys work like that though.  It's not like it's a chunk of aluminum with little bits of copper mixed into it.

This question came up in a game recently. I was wondering if anyone more well-versed in allomantic theory knew the answer: does duralumin share aluminum's property of being immune to steel push/iron pull?

Somebody was filming it so it should show up eventually...

Yeah, I can't wait for the full thing to go online.  I was there for part of it but would love to see the bits that I missed.  Brandon is hilarious as a player.

Alas, by the time I got out of the line for Sanderson's signing (which was crazy long), they only had the premium dice sets left (so only 1 entry for me).  Better odds than the lottery still I guess.

There between 2 and 3. Smiley

Shoot, I can't get there until closer to 4... Cry

I hope you don't buy all of the dice before I can get to the booth... Wink

Absolutely! As we mentioned in the announcement, spectators are more than welcome! Smiley

Excellent!  I don't know how I missed that in the original announcement... I probably can't read.  Smiley
