Little Orbit, the developer who is currently at work on Young Justice Legacy has revealed that they are also currently working on a Role-Playing Game addition to Brandon Anderson's Mistborn series. The game, titled Mistborn: Birthright, will take place several hundred years before the events in the Mistborn novels.

For those unfamiliar with the source material, Mistborn focuses on people in a fantasy world who can use a magic known as Allomancy. Those who have the power of Allomancy may use it to "temporarily enhance their physical and mental abilities by ingesting and 'burning' flakes of metal". Individuals who can burn only one type of metal are called "Mistlings". Those who are special enough to burn all metal types are known as "Mistborn".


Mistborn: Birthright will have you take on the role of Fendin “Fiddle” Fathvell, who is described as "an arrogant young nobleman who must quickly master his newfound Allomantic abilities before forces at work can destroy his entire family". Sanderson himself is an avid gamer, and is directly collaborating with Little Orbit to solidify Fendin Fathvell's place in the Mistborn Universe.

Mistborn: Birthright will be available in Fall 2013. You can check out the official site for the game here.
