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).

I would generally imagine things would tend to have gotten worse as the influence of Ruin wore on TLR's mind.

What is interesting to me is, how do City Skaa fit into the system? The Tradesmen morph into an almost full blown Middle Class fairly quickly once the Final Empire ends, and they seem to have far more freedom than the Plantation Skaa... how does this work? If the Lord Ruler leases the Plantation Skaa to the Nobles, are the City Skaa "unleased"? Anyway, I look forward to Tin and Ash and how you make all of this work.
