You can and should feel free to question, change, or ignore the events of the novels whenever you feel they lessen the importance of your Heroes or your group’s ability to tell its story. The Mistborn Adventure Game is only fun when you have the freedom to explore the world on your own terms. Anything else is just getting in the way. So how do you make that happen? Well, your story will be at its best whenever you embrace one simple question: “What if…?” You can answer this question in lots of ways. You might introduce a metal that wasn’t available in the books, or replace or even eliminate the heroes of the trilogy and consider the ramifications. You can diverge in little ways, changing events in just one city, adding in a new battle or struggle, or changing the course of one from the canon. You could even break away from the novels with your very first session. Here are a few “what if” scenarios from the novels, and how your Crew might fit into the action. WHAT IF THE CREW WERE ALL SURVIVORS OF HATHSIN? Instead of a sole survivor, a whole band of Mistings and Mistborn set off with a small supply of atium, secrets no skaa was meant to know, and the ambition to free as many slaves as they can. Your Crew might start in the atium mines, establishing their plight and that of their friends as they struggle to keep each other alive. They might even meet Kelsier, who imparts his knowledge before a brutal death. Then, escape and an opportunity to see what they the Crew can make of its new- found freedom… The Crew’s atium stash and the secrets they bring with them from Hathsin give them an edge, but they also make them targets of the Steel Ministry and its huge network of informants and spies. WHAT IF KELSIER HIRED THE HEROES INSTEAD OF VIN, DOCKSON, HAM, AND BREEZE? Your Heroes become pivotal instruments of Kelsier’s plan to incite a rebel- lion and kill the Lord Ruler. Kelsier worked with many thieves and crews before he was taken to Hasthin. Now that he’s back, your Heroes are the ones he’s chosen for this harrowing task. They may fill the various roles of Kelsier’s plan as it rolled out in the novels, or he might propose an entirely different plan to seize Luthadel.

BOOK THREE 403 EXPLORING THE NOVELS One part of Kelsier’s plan is perhaps best left unchanged, however. After his death, it falls to the Crew to see the rest of his ambitious scheme to its ultimate end. WHAT IF THE STEEL MINISTRY DISCOVERED KELSIER’S CREW? Steel Inquisitors capture Kelsier, Vin, Breeze, Ham, and the others, and they’re never heard of again. Is there enough information between OreSuer, Sazed, and the other remnants of the old crew to resurrect Kelsier’s plan, or is all hope of that errand lost for good? Perhaps one of your Heroes can sneak into a Ministry holding and interview Kelsier or one of the other crew members kept prisoner all this time, or in a less forgiving Final Empire, before they’re executed. Maybe your Crew rescues Vin and joins forces with her in a whole new scheme.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
