Download Brandon Sanderson's MAGIC: THE GATHERING Novella CHILDREN OF THE NAMELESS Now


If you’re a fan of Brandon Sanderson, then you probably know that he’s a fan of Magic: The Gathering. If you didn’t, well, now you do. In fact, Sanderson has written a novella with the story team at Wizards of the Coast for Magic called Magic: Children of the Nameless. Here’s a quick description:

Since the day she was born, Tacenda has been both blessed and cursed. Blessed by a powerful protection spell of unknown origin, she has warded her family and friends against any number of horrors over her 15 years. Cursed because the horrors which visit her small Kessig village are both numerous and frequent. Then, one night, for no reason she can fathom, her sacred song of protection fails. Seeking revenge on the man she believes responsible for the failure and the consequent destruction of everything she loves, she breaks into the manor of the local lord, a known consorter with demons. There she discovers the beginnings of an even greater mystery… starting with the fact the Lord of the Manor is anything but local…

OK, if you’ve played the game, you know how cool it would be to design a Planeswalker. Do you think Davriel will be turned into a card? In addition to the first chapter, io9 was able to sit down and have a brief chat with Sanderson which gives insight into how he went about getting this awesome deal and how he created his new characters.
