[ALLOY OF LAW] Twinborn Stunt Requests?
« on: May 23, 2014, 07:50:04 PM »
Hey folks,

I am now out of the woods on the Allomancy Stunts (thanks for your suggestions!) and I'm finding I want to enhance the breadth of our Twinborn Stunt offerings. Since you all are very knowledgeable fans with a love of speculation - what are some combos of powers you'd like to see Twinborn pull off? That will help a very burnt out editor/rewriter this weekend...

Thanks in advance!

Hmmmm...

Trying to think outside the box here...

What about a stunt for aGold/fAluminum that would let you store the "identity" of a gold shadow?

I was think of a stunt that would allow a twinborn compounder to burn both a metalmind and their regular allomantic ability at the same time. (i.e. a bronze compounder able to compound wakefulness while burning regular bronze to seek, making good sentries.) this ability is so difficult to handle (even as a stunt) that they can't use other allomantic stunts while doing this. (maybe, if this is already a thing, there can be a stunt that allows them to use the allomantic stunts along with this ability.)

I don't know if a compounder can actually do this. if I remember correctly, miles stopped burning his goldmind so that he could burn normal gold to become captain hindsight.

In case you have a few days to burn, there's a rather long thread over on 17s speculating as to cool twinborn combos. You could likely skim a few interesting Stunts from there. :)

New stunt: Some combination of fDuralumin (Connectors) and the emotional metals. The ability to manipulate people's feelings on multiple levels? Yes please, I can see some promise of Stuntage there.

I agree with Kurk. Some way to cheat FDuralumin with AZinc/ABrass or ACopper would be interesting if done right.

Not so much a new stunt, but have you got an interaction between the 'perfect sense memory' stunts, and F-Copper?

Finally... some way to fuel Allomancy with F-Nicrosil has always been high on my wishlist.
Interesting discussion, but I think rule of cool could reasonably trump mere science in a game about magic powers.   :P

Hey guys,

Thanks for the initial responses. However, turns out I just don't have the time to fix the problems with this idea. Twinborn Stunts will need to wait for another time - but don't worry, Twinborn (and other Alloy characters) have heaps and heaps and heaps of new Stunts from which they can choose :)

I'm gonna lock this thread rather than delete it for now.
