No, it's only a 4 or a 5, but either way it's the only stat anyone has that's higher than the Lord Ruler. There was never any reason for that guy to buy it up because he knew what it did.

So, the GM has said we may play a generations game at some point set 300 years in the future of this game. I have done the sensible thing and downloaded genealogy software and am in the process of tracing the family lines of the PCs and major NPCs up to that point.

Pray for Mojo.

So far three of the family lines have made it past the 100 year mark.

On an unrelated note, I have a HUGE list of terrible names for fantasy settings (or whatever else you want them for).

And while I'm at it bumping old nerd threads...

I got permission from the first GM to run a legacy campaign in this setting 100 years out from the end of the first campaign. The players will be in a small country along a major shipping route, and they will be trying to rise to power at a time when the world is experiencing the equivalent of the enlightenment and the early industrial revolution and the first major civil rights movement all at the same time.

In preparation for this, I have created a terrible name generator. I will be working on getting an online version of it available eventually, but for now, some samples:
  • Slewure
  • Corspet
  • Hadaha
  • Jaunary

Have you considered incorporating the greater Cosmere into your game?

Our group has consciously rejected a substantial portion of the god-tier stuff from the Cosmere. In our version of events, the Lord Ruler was an idiot who didn't understand that black ash is actually going to make your planet hotter, moron, and so when we cleared up the Ashmounts things got better (but not back to the old normal) and neither Ruin nor Preservation have any driving consciousness or long-term goals.

That's probably for the better.  That stuff might be better suited for a high end campaign, but I suppose a lot of how it actually works is unknown, and trying to fit surgebinding and so on into Allomancy would be quite time consuming.

Not to mention if someone got their hands on a shardblade...

So I started running a game 100 years out because I couldn't decide how to resolve the inevitable civil/world war at about that time. One of the players has been posting summaries to r/mistborn in the hopes that we make Sanderson cry.

Short version: new campaign focuses on Kenwick Mannix (the same player as the MURDER MURDER MURDER guy in the first game) and his trusty band of ne'er do wells -- Fiesal "Weasel" Profoste (a sketchy Terris "steward"), Fairenough Hasting (a steel compounder and courier), Pindewlyss Penrod (a tineye and the bitch of his noble house), and Indra (a bendalloy/aluminum twinborn with mild dissociative identity disorder) -- as they lie, cheat, poison, and steal their way into political power in the city of Dorming.

They have so far
  • Tampered with census data
  • Destroyed the alliance between House Penrod and House Elariel
  • Co-founded a classy whore house
  • Ruined an important wedding
  • Undermined the already weak alliance between House Auerband and House Ossment
  • Murdered a "legitimate businessman" and taken over his "business"
  • Accidentally disqualified the incumbent candidate for the Skaa representative on the ruling council
  • Allowed the head of House Penrod to be assassinated in the night
  • Poisoned the acting head of House Penrod just days later
  • Acquired a live Giant Hogweed plant

Next game they will be purchasing House Ossment's everything by offering an alternative to bankruptcy that will go horribly wrong for Ossment because Fiesal is a rat bastard when it comes to finances and contracts. They may also ruin a shipment of very expensive clothing from House Merwades on its way to Luthadel, because heaven forbid they actually talk with people to negotiate deals instead of ruining their lives.
