I'm curious. The Terris supplement had a history of the people group, and we know that the Final Empire hasn't always been under the plantation system (It's, like, only 300 years old according to Elend's book, right), so I wonder what other systems the regional Skaa would have been under?

Well, not communism, I can tell you that.

I guess (one) big question here is whether the plantation system was a step up or down from before.
It's also interesting to note that the plantation system was the basis of the economy, but there were a lot of city skaa. I wonder if they were "owned" by city nobles, or whether they were somewhat free?

My guess is either full-blown slavery, or a very strict caste system. Seeing as the plantation is a step up, and in it nobles are basically leasing skaa from the Lord Ruler, both seem strong possibilities (depending if you think things are getting "better" or "worse" over time).
