Mistborn Adventure Game Update: Revised Digital Edition + Print Book Delivery Estimates

Crafty Games has an update on the Mistborn Adventure Game, the new roleplaying experience based on the best-selling novel series by Brandon Sanderson...

Since the release of the Digital Edition we've been hard at work updating the game to incorporate reader feedback, correcting small issues that cropped up during the design, and generally making sure the end product is the best it can possibly be. We're all fans first, just like you, and it's imperative to us that anything with the Mistborn name on it share the same quality, care, and majesty Brandon delivers in his novels. 

All direct orders have been updated now and a new version of the Digital Edition is live at both our storefronts. Anyone who’s previously purchased a version of the game that includes the Digital Edition should have received an email notifying them of where to download it. If you don’t see this email by early Saturday, June 2, please drop us a line at service@crafty-games.com so we can get it sorted. 

The new version of the Digital Edition contains many changes, a few large and several small, which we previously posted about on our forums. There's also an index (which we couldn't include previously because page pointers tend to shift when you're still making changes to a book), as well as an appendix that summarizes the core rules of the game without the walkthrough guidance. The novel characters section - Book 3, Chapter 8 - has been overhauled for easier reading and has the added benefit of being much more attractive, with full page art for most of the major personalities from the canon. 

All these upgrades have been folded into the physical editions of the book as well, and our printer has been working diligently to ensure the finished work enjoys the same high quality as the content (which again, we thank you for making so special). 

Anyone curious what the finished books will look like - at least partly - should visit our Facebook Page, where we've posted pictures of the proofs that we approved just last week.

So when will the books be in stores, and when will they ship to direct customers? Just last afternoon we received word that we should expect the softcovers back to us around June 18, with the hardcovers near July 9. Given the time it takes to gather distribution orders and ship product to stores, this means you'll see the game in your FLGS around the first few weeks of July (remember, only the softcover is going into stores - the hardcover is available exclusively from us).

Direct orders will be shipped as soon as we receive the books, and without the extra time involved in pushing product into stores this means direct order customers should see their books go out from us within a few days of the dates above. Shipping times being what they are, U.S. customers should expect their books in the mail within a week or so, based on their chosen shipping method, and overseas customers should add 1-2 weeks based on their location. You can find more precise estimates based on your location and chosen shipping method at the USPS Services page.

We will of course keep you all posted as orders are fulfilled, and we're also available for any questions you may have.  

So... to those of you who've already supported us in this wondrous new endeavor, we thank you! Anyone who's been waiting for concrete news before ordering, or who's now intrigued enough to jump on board, can place an order at the following link...


There are three editions of the Mistborn Adventure Game...

  • The Deluxe Hardcover Edition is is available exclusively through Crafty Games. It features all the same contents as the Softcover Retail Edition plus full-color endsheets displaying the Allomantic and (brand new) Feruchemical tables of metals, a stamped spine, and a beautiful, full-color dust jacket. It's the perfect addition to any Sanderson fan's bookshelf.
  • The Softcover Retail Edition will be available in book and hobby retailers worldwide, but you're also welcome to purchase it here. It features the same contents as the Deluxe Hardcover Edition in a compact, easy-to-carry and use format. It's perfect for that gamer on the go!
  • The Digital Edition is a beautiful, fully bookmarked PDF with the same content as the Softcover Retail Edition. You can also bundle the Digital Edition with either the Hardcover or Softcover Edition for just $5 more than the print book!

Based on the bestselling novels by Brandon Sanderson and powered by an all new story-driven rules system, the Mistborn Adventure Game lets you explore, command, or liberate the oppressed world of Scadrial, battle the Lord Ruler’s Inquisitors, and master the primal forces of Allomancy, Feruchemy, and Hemalurgy. It’s the ultimate resource for fans of the novels and those who want to experience the Final Empire firsthand.

Crafty Games has events running all weekend for Fantasy Craft and the Mistborn Adventure Game, but the big news is our special celebrity session with Mistborn creator Brandon Sanderson. That's right, six lucky winners will have the chance to play a full five-hour session of the Mistborn Adventure Game with the novel author himself!

This event happens Sunday from 11am to 4pm and seats will be raffled off throughout the weekend at the Crafty Games booth in the dealer's hall (like last year, we're in the Studio 2 block this time around - watch our site for the exact booth number as we close on the weekend). Every purchase at the Crafty Games booth will earn you one or more raffle tickets, so be sure to keep us on your shopping lists.

Brandon will also be signing at our booth Saturday from 4:30pm to 6pm, which is a great time to stop by and pick up your very own copy of the Mistborn Adventure Game and get it signed by the man himself.  Brandon is Gen Con's Author Guest of Honor this year and will also be doing special readings and panels all weekend. 

Don't forget to watch us on Facebook, Twitter, and the Crafty Games news feed for more details about this amazing weekend. 

We look forward to seeing you at the show! Stay Crafty!
