Savage Worlds: Mistborn – Allomancy Pt1

12sdken

Allomancy is one of the power sets from Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn series. It revolves around Mistborns people with access to all the powers and Mistings people with access to only one power. These powers are fueled by the composition of metals and their alloys.

The door is smashed down and 6 raiders pour in the door, roll for initiative.

You’ve jumped almost straight into the action, your players have had a little time to chat and then the adventures comes running through the door, armed and hairy.
