Of Gilded Words and Poisonous Tongues!

In the Lord Ruler’s Final Empire, blood is destiny. A skaa birth condemns you to a hard life of labor and service. A Terris birth marks you forever as an outsider, an uncomfortable reminder of a bygone era. To be born noble is to live at the peak of political and social power, blessed with the potential for Allomancy — but it also means a life of vicious politicking, ruthless competition, and the perpetual risk of betrayal and ruin. As a noble Hero, you face the same question as all who defy this grim order: do you have the courage to shrug off blood and destiny, to stand against the brutality of this world, and fight for a better future… for everyone?

Nobles: The Golden Mandate is the final supplement for the Mistborn Adventure Game. Developed in cooperation with Brandon Sanderson and Dragonsteel Entertainment, this book dives deep into the history and intrigues of Mistborn’s most notable families, from the ten Great Houses who dominate the halls of power to the up-and-coming Lesser Houses that forever nip at their heels. This essential guide melds information from the novels with background developed for the Mistborn: House War board game to form a rich environment for storytelling in the cutthroat world of the Final Empire’s nobility.

For players of the Mistborn Adventure Game, this supplement offers extensive guidance for playing a rebellious noble Hero, adding nobles to a skaa thieving Crew, and exploring what it means to defy the Lord Ruler. Also included are new rules for creating Noble Heroes: Traits, Stunts, and a new Power, Family, which lets you bring the full power of your name to bear in cunning and creative ways. For nobles with a more daring streak, there’s also new background information and character options for playing an elite, Allomancer-hunting Hazekiller!

For Narrators, an exciting multi-session adventure titled “Thieves in the Ninth House” takes your Crew to the Eastern Dominance, where they’re hired to liberate an honor hostage from the clutches of House Urbain. This seemingly simple job soon proves to be anything but, for in the world of Mistborn there’s always another secret…

Nobles: The Golden Mandate is not a complete game. You need a copy of the Mistborn Adventure Game, some dice, and imagination to play.

Who the Book's For
Fans of the Mistborn novels and the Mistborn: House War board game; players and Narrators of the Mistborn Adventure Game; or gamers who love RPGs of politics and intrigue like Amber, Houses of the Blooded, or Vampire

How do I report proof reading errors? Is that something that's even wanted?

In either case, found this on page 15, where it says crew instead of grew.
"But as the family crew in wealth"

Noting them is appreciated, but with the Digital Editions going away at the end of this year there isn't time to implement them. The physical books have already been printed, so we can't adjust there either. Thanks, though!

Whoops! Those were missed in post. We'll get them added. Might take a few days, as our graphic designer is swamped with other projects at the moment.

Oh great! Thank you!

Also, and this is a question for all the Mistborn RPG pdfs, why are there blank pages scattered throughout the books? Hmm, looking at my physical copy of the core book, I guess that's the case there too.

No problem. Thanks for bring it to our attention.

It's a matter of where chapter headers land and how much text we have for a given section. Unlike a lot of RPG products, the Mistborn books are made to look like novels - specifically like some of Brandon's Mistborn novels from around the time we launched. Rather than pad sections with superfluous text, we let them end where the authors naturally end their thoughts. Often this results in text going just past a page that would normally end a chapter, so extra pages are added to ensure chapters started in consistent places - just like the novels we're emulating.

Okay, that makes sense. Thank you for explaining so thoroughly. I was afraid my pdfs were messed up and missing content.

They said on Discord that it depends when their new website goes live. It may or may not be by the end of the year, so there may not be a bundled PDF option available for this release

No pre-order for this one. The book should be available next month, so there really isn't enough time - and we're currently in the process of building a new webstore, so there's no platform for it either.

Expect the book in stores by the end of October. To be notified of this and other releases, please consider signing up for our newsletter. Link's on our home site.

The digital editions are going to become unavailable come December 31st? That's truly a shame, I assume the license has expired?

That's correct. We will still be offering our remaining physical inventory, including the first and only print run of Nobles: The Golden Mandate, through 2024.

That's a true shame, I greatly enjoy this system and have a blast running it. I will have to keep an eye out for the physical books if I can manage to get the money to snatch them.

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.
