Ashyn is a Minor Shardworld in the solar system of Greater Roshar. It is the first planet from Roshar's sun . The only other planets with sentient life in the system are Braize and Roshar, though the system includes more than three planets total.
Ashyn is mostly barren, with a few fertile patches. While there are humans inhabiting this planet, a global cataclysm at some point in the past has forced most of its inhabitants to live in floating cities in the sky. It currently has no shard.
