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.

Contracts
Coming soon…


House Reboux: Making stained glass, chandeliers, etc for their new manor in Fellise as well as providing a large amount of jewelery for the noblewomen of the house in exchange for a large sum of money and discounted use of their barges to ship their jewelry into the Northern Dominance.

Governance & Customs
House Urvon is divided into 3 branches: The Jewelers, The Glassblowers, and the Miners. Each branch is responsible for the production of the material from which they get their name. The jewelers are trained in the making of jewelry, the glassblowers in the production of glass, and the miners branch are trained to be taskmasters and managers of the mines that produce the jewels for the jewelers. Each branch competes against the others for leadership of the house whenever the Head does not produce a suitable heir before his death. The Jewelers branch has been in control for the last 50 years, as there have been no unsuitable heirs. The miners are looked down on because unlike jewelers and glassblowers, they don’t learn their trade, they just manage others who do it.



History
Isaac Urvon and his family founded House Urvon in 738 after he abandoned House Urov as it fell. He was a skilled glassblower, and started a small business in Fellise, selling glass products. After about a decade of work, he had gained enough notoriety from selling small, detailed stained glass windows and other decorative pieces that he was approached by a house making a bid for great house to design the giant stained glass windows that would be in their main ballroom. This contract catapulted him from an extremely skilled craftsman with a small, moderately successful business, to the head of a successful minor house (SE rating of 3.5). His 3 boys married girls from other successful minor houses, and they continued the business. Each became a skilled glassblower/maker. His heir, Lucas, made the business even larger, and House Urvon became one of the most contracted glassblowing houses for houses building manors or keeps in Luthadel. Urvon became an extremely successful niche house. However, by 850, Lucas’s grandson, Marcel, decided that House Urvon needed to become more than just a niche house. He used funds from decades of contracts to open a mine a few miles outside of Valtroux City. They found precious jewels, and from there, decided to expand their glassblowing business to a business of luxury items, from detailed stained glass, to jewelry. He had two sons and a daughter. His heir, Alfred, inherited the glassblowing business, while his second son, Anders, became the head of the Jeweler’s branch. His nephew Stefan was given the mining business. These two brothers and their cousin were the first three heads of the three Urvon branches. The jewelry business was immensely successful, and made House Urvon a major house. Since then, they have grown their businesses, and now own numerous mines, jewelry shops, and glassblowing shops. They are almost always the first house contacted whenever stained glass is needed, and their jewelry is always well represented at balls.

Manor Description
Manor Urvon is a sprawling home, and is one of the most impressive manors in Fellise. It covers multiple acres, with a central, 3 story building built to seem, on the outside, like the exterior of a small keep. Four towers, each of which houses a small contingent of guards, surround it and each houses different servants (i.e. one houses the cooking staff, one houses the cleaning staff, one houses the stewards, etc.) The central building houses the heads of each branch, with the Mining head and his family on the first floor, the glassblowing head and family on the second floor, and the Jewelers’ head and family on the third floor. The higher floor means a higher ranking in house politics, and since the Jewelers’ head is the head of the house, he and his family live on the third floor.
