We think you are awesome.
We think the MAG is awesome
and the way you interact with us on the forums is awesome
! I think sometimes it may seem like a lot of what we have to say is criticism and comments on the rules or differences with the cannon and to some degree this is true. We spend a lot of time thinking about the game and its mechanics because we love it so much, a lot of the most interesting discussion to be had with any game is to do with the fringe cases and extreme situations and every now and then we run into one of them in game. When that happens it helps if we have already discussed it beforehand when we didn't have personal stakes with our characters causing bias
Our intention when we point out these canonical differences or seemingly unbalanced or missing mechanics isn't to poke holes in what you have created, rather we are usually checking to see if there is something we have missed or to find things that aren't clear and can be clarified or simply to let you know about stuff that you may have been unaware of. We find investigating the ins and outs of a system fun! Some of us also really enjoy a good discussion/argument and that is what is coming through when we make those massive posts discussing game mechanics.
It can be incredibly difficult to develop a game for a dedicated fan-base like Brandon's. There are always going to be details that you didn't know about that we do, especially given how complicated Brandon makes his books and magic. Heck, none of us remember all of it at once (Don't look at me like that Kurkistan, even you forget things occasionally
), we quite often need to correct each-other and search for Word of Brandon on things.
The point is, that it doesn't really matter that the MAG doesn't always fit with the Mistborn canon, often enough the changes you make intentionally and otherwise actually make for better gameplay, and if we want it to be closer to canon we can easily install house rules to make it so
This is in part because of how fantastically open-ended the MAG is.
The long and short of it is, we love what you have made and I think I speak for all of us when I say that we are 100% in support of you guys.
You're doing a great job, keep it up!
