The Lord Ruler's perfect capital city, Luthadel, is doing the impossible: rebelling. Skaa half-breeds are being taught the power of Allomancy, something that the Lord Ruler's obligators said only existed in the nobility. The enslaved skaa, with their murderous benefactor, now fight back against a living god's oppression.

So, the Inquisition was formed. The nobles begin to fear assassination from all sides. The times of nobility Mistborn killing each other are over. The Steel Inquisitors look for aristocrat traitors and insurgent skaa, and the skaa try with all their strength to merely survive. The Lord Ruler's perfect Final Empire is slowly devolving into chaos.

Er... well, I don't know how you'd "squeeze" if you can only access one of my sides. I've never heard that squeezing someone there makes them jump, and if there is, you can only get to one side at a time. If you can find me some more information on this "jump start" move, I would very much like to read about it.

From what I know about the mounted crucifix, a lot of leverage would be against you as you try to attack, by which I mean that however strong you are, you can only apply a fraction of that strength to hitting me. Here's what I think would happen:

Between your flared pewter, the fact that I'm bracing you so well, and the fact that, since you can't displace me, ALL of that kinetic energy will go into damage, you'd prolly compensate for your position a bit, and you'd likely manage to crack a few ribs. You wouldn't do much else.

Does this seem fair to you? Is there another scenario you think would be more likely?

I guess I wouldn't do that move if I felt there wasn't enough leverage, Q will probably Pull on multiple weapons from the walls toward both of us.

All right. That works. Go ahead and post that. Remember that you can still "see" the blue lines of iron, but you'll have to rely on the rest of your senses for everything else.

So, here's my current plan. That tin I tapped at the end of my last move was a hearing tinmind, since those arrows reminded Fisel of your ironpulls. He hears the spear, and sees it coming. At the last moment, when the spear is less than a meter away, he's going to release iron and tap triple steel and zinc, jump up out of the way of the spear, grab the haft, tap a lot of pewter, and force the spear into your gut.

The only problem I have is that I Pulled multiple weapons on various walls and so there would be several weapons flying toward both of us a

Ah, I'd figured it was a negligible amount. How many? Like, literally every weapon? Five? Two? Fifty?

You'd sorta focused on that one spear, and I figured your focused attempts to get specifically it and to aim it the right way would have taken most of your concentration, so I'd dismissed the others. I hadn't realized they were meant to be so noteworthy.

EDIT: To expand and clarify my original thought.

I was thinking around ten-ish, it was just that Q only specifically remembered the spear, so that one was what he purposely Pulled on.
