Questioner

Do you plan on doing more lines of minis for your other series? Namely, Mistborn?

Brandon Sanderson

If something is successful, we are more likely to do it in the future. I'll borrow an answer from Mark Rosewater whenever he gets asked about things with Magic: The Gathering. We have no immediate plans. This comes down to the "do fewer things better." And we want to make sure that we're doing a really good job with the thing we're doing right now [Stormlight miniatures]. And then, if things are successful and people want them, we will move forward.

One of the very first things that I said when I was talking to Isaac and Johnny [with Brotherwise Games] about this is: fans really want a pen-and-paper Stormlight RPG. We have, with the wonderful people at Crafty Games, a Mistborn RPG; but we don't have a Stormlight one. And so I said to Johnny, "Can you guys help us make one?"

Brotherwise Games

Absolutely. Totally a dream project for us. With an RPG project, we've been in discussions with some big names and also some great new voices in the RPG space, so we are assembling a killer team of TTRPG writers and editors and, of course, illustrators. (The art aspect of this is huge.) But this is a huge project, so this is something that's gonna roll out over time. We're gonna be fairly quiet about it in the near future as we're working on that team, but we will absolutely be getting to a point where we go to the community for feedback and ask what you're looking for in this. That's gonna be a huge part of this.

Brandon Sanderson

We know nothing about it yet other than "we are going to do one." But we are going to do one.

Brotherwise Games

At this point, again, we're not gonna be able to answer too many questions about that. But we're already gonna start listening for what you want. So if a Reddit thread goes up talking about "hey, what do you hope to see in this," then we will be reading that.

Brandon Sanderson

So let us know what it is that you guys want. Again, we're in the pre-concepting stages. We haven't even sat down and talked about what I like in RPGs and things like that. We will definitely get there, but that's our next project with Brotherwise, probably.

Brotherwise Games

That's our next big one; I think the next one that would be crowdfunded.

Will the Stormlight RPG use the same mechanic system as the Mistborn Adventure Game?

Brandon Sanderson

These are two separate companies; they are unlikely to share mechanics. Is what I would say. But these are things that we want to hear. One of our biggest questions is: do we come up with our own system entirely? Or do we use one of the very popular game systems that are in existence already? Because there are ways to do both of those things. Would you, as a playerbase, prefer one that isn't compatible with d20 or something like that? Or would you prefer something that is? That's useful and relevant for us to hear.
