Skaa: Tin & Ash Digital Edition

Watermarked PDF

From the ashes, hope rises

The Final Empire was built on the backs of the skaa — the downtrodden descendants of those who opposed the Lord Ruler’s ascension a thousand years ago. They are the faceless masses of Scadrial, tasked with plowing the barren fields, sweeping the ash-covered streets, tending the opulent nobility, and serving at the whims of their “betters.” But a few skaa cast off the chains of their destiny to be something more. They are thieves, Allomancers, firebrands, and rebels. They fight the system of oppression and brutality to give their people something they lost long ago — hope.

Skaa: Tin & Ash is an essential supplement for the Mistborn Adventure Game, designed for players, Narrators, and fans of the Mistborn novels. Developed in cooperation with Brandon Sanderson, this guide expands the canon of the novels, providing new insights into skaa throughout the Final Empire. Inside you’ll find detailed information on the history and beliefs of the skaa; the lives of city, canal, and plantation skaa; the skaa criminal and political underground; and famous skaa such as the Citizen, Mare, and the Survivor of the Flames.

For players of the Mistborn Adventure Game, there’s a bounty of new rules for creating and playing your own skaa Hero, including new Stunts, equipment, Networks, and locations to explore and liberate.

Also included is an epic adventureBeasts of Burden, set in the black heart of the skaa criminal underworld. An old friend has gone missing in the slums of Luthadel, and you have been hired to find him before it’s too late. As you close in on the truth, you find yourself and all you hold dear under assault from all quarters by a shadowy syndicate. What is this foe protecting, and how will you strike back? Your very survival hangs in the balance…

This handsome PDF is fully hyperlinked, bookmarked, and cross-referenced, and features layers you can turn off for easy printing.

There are two different files, what's the difference between them?

I just checked and only see 1 file. What are the file names you're seeing?

I see two files:


The files are slightly different sizes, but both list themselves as First Printing 2015.

cfg08005-skaa-tin-and-ash.pdf is the only file we have on the backend. It's the correct file.

The only thing I can think of is that it may be a caching issue. When is the last time you cleared your browser's cache?

Weird. The same two files have been showing since I first downloaded them in 2018. This isn't even the same computer. I'll just ignore the one with the other name.

Thanks for the help!

Thanks for your support!

Does this book have anything useful for games set in the Alloy of Law era, or is it specific to the Final Empire / World of Ash setting?

Skaa: Tin & Ash exclusively focuses on the Final Empire era.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
