Been reading/listening to a lot of Stormlight Archive lately and we loves it, precious.
I'm considering using Pathfinder as a chassis to run a game set on Roshar. There'd be a lot of homebrew elements. Most magic using classes would not be allowed; instead, classes without magic would be allowed. Those that were interested in becoming Radiants would get a power set that would essentially function as a "free" Sorcerer-type Bloodline.
I'm not quite sure what the plotline for the game would be; it would take place concurrently with the books, though.
As this is not a module but a created campaign the pacing would be slower than some other games.
If enough interest is expressed I'll put up a recruitment.
I'm interested. I love Sanderson's work, but I am a complete noob to the pathfinder ruleset. Like, I'm just reading through the core rules for the first time right now, so trying to wrap my head around the spheres of power and might could be a bit much for me. If it was in 5e or Genesys, I'd be more comfortable. But, honestly, if you start recruiting for a Cosmere game, I'll send you an app for any system.
I don't know if PF is the best idea but I don't know what other system would best emulate it.
I suppose you could make the orders of Knights Radiant like free Bloodlines added onto existing classes? Have powers take X "Charges" of Stormlight? It would be hard to make it so that it was accurate to the books I think.

I'd be interested. Reading Book 3 now and having to fight between reading slowly so I can enjoy it for longer and racing through it.
Would the Genesys system work? (I've never played with it, but I believe it's supposed to be very adaptable; I really need to read it, though, as I'm playing in a game with it in like 10 days...)
But, honestly, if you start recruiting for a Cosmere game, I'll send you an app for any system.
Ditto. I would jump on this even if I had to buy a new rulebook. I guess you could say I'm interested.
I think the hardest part would be figuring out what to do if someone wanted to play a Radiant who's surges haven't been revealed yet.
