CRAFTY GAMES TO PUBLISH MISTBORN RPG
Creators of Spycraft 2.0 to develop RPG Adaptation of Epic Fantasy Trilogy by Wheel of Time Author Brandon Sanderson
September 7, 2008 — PORTLAND, OR: Crafty Games LLC has reached an agreement with popular fantasy writer and author of the final volume of the Wheel of Time, Brandon Sanderson, to publish a roleplaying game based on his epic fantasy trilogy Mistborn. The game will arrive in 2009 and let players create their own exciting adventures in the Final Empire.
“Mistborn is an enchanting and innovative dark-fantasy series that’s tailor-made for gaming,” said Crafty Games partner Alex Flagg. “We’re thrilled at the opportunity to work with Brandon to create a product capturing the unique magic, action, and intrigue that’s made Mistborn such a hit with fantasy fans across the world.”
“I’ve been a role player for years and I’ve looked forward to the day when I could help adapt one of my properties as an RPG setting,” said Brandon Sanderson. “Mistborn is the perfect story for an RPG; the magic of Allomancy lends itself well to gaming and there are many untold stories to play out in this world of falling ash and cloaking mists. Crafty Games is one of the premier independent gaming companies out there and I’m ecstatic to be working with them!”
“We’ve got a great relationship with Brandon and he’s already working with us to provide new content created specifically for the RPG,” added Flagg. “Next year  is going to be a great time for fans of Brandon, Mistborn, and Crafty alike.”
