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.

House Elariel
Great House

Leadership Information
Handle : Miang
Contact : PM, AIM, MSN, ICQ, Yahoo Messenger

General Information
House Elariel has maintained a presence in Luthadel for a very long time. While not as financially stable as Venture, the Elariel?s are known for their market diversity which allows them to weather almost any catastrophe in a single financial sector. Politically Elariel has risen through the ranks to become second among the great houses by carefully planning her alliances, never committing to anything without considering the situation from each side.

Home & Wealth
Ancestral Home: Western Dominance
Current Location: Luthadel
Financial Avenue: Unlike most Houses which have made their fortunes specialized, Elariel?s claim to great worth is in the way they have spread their money out. Boasting of interests in fields such as foodstuffs, textiles, and iron ores Elariel works at not being pinned into any one area. If they could be said to have a specialty it would be importing and exporting of goods across the Final Empire.

Canton of Resources: They have a large contract to provide most of the foodstuffs to the Ministry. In exchange House Elariel receives a great deal of money as well as a small (very small) amount of atium.

House Marsdale: They have a financial contract with this House for a small amount of their textile production.

House Dautrieve: Elariel has a contract importing a large amount of Dautrieve?s jewelry production in exchange for a fee and small percentage of the profits.

House Bellemont: Ten years ago Bellemont entered into a permanent alliance with House Elariel. Since then the majority of their mining production has been imported and either processed or sold by Elariel.

House Pomeroy: This is another house Elariel deals with to produce and import foodstuffs.

House Rousseau: Rousseau provides boats that move Elariel?s goods down the canals out of Luthadel and into the other Dominances.

House Champney: Champney has recently come into greater wealth buying up several foundries in Fellise. They contracted with Elariel to buy some of their iron ore.

Allies and Rivals
-House Bellemont: Bellemont is a powerful lesser house specializing in mining iron. Bellemont has several family members married to some of the more distant Elariel cousins.

- House Pomeroy: Pomeroy has sold their production value to Elariel for a long time; their financial relationship has made them allies.

- House Dautrieve: Elariel allied with this House years ago when Dautrieve came into a large amount of silver. They turned to Elariel to help them sell their goods, and the houses have been working together ever since.

-House Haussau: Haussau delved into the shipping business heavily in the Western Dominance where Elariel has their original residence. They are a competitor for Elariel?s import / export business and a financial rival.

-House Atherton: This is a lesser house based in Luthadel. The Atherton family has been dealing with many of Luthadel?s foundries, some of whom buy ore from Elariel. They have been trying to compete by undercutting Elariel?s prices as they try to get their foot in the door of that market.

-House D?Aubinge: The D?aubinges have been developing their farmsteads and plantations in the Western Dominance, which is cutting slightly into Elariel?s profit margin.

Coming Soon: I hope to add a Great House to Elariel?s list of Rivals soon, I just have to work all the details out.

Keep Description
Keep Elariel was built to impress far more than it was built to defend.
More coming soon

I finally got my copy of MB1 back, so I thought I'd get the Keep description from it up while I could.

Also, a few additions:
Player Members:
Daerra Elariel
Aaron Elariel

NPC Members:
Lord Andrew Elariel
Lady Janelle Elariel

Keep Description:
Quotes from Misborn: The Final Empire:

?[Keep Elariel] was a bit smaller than the keep of House Venture. However, Keep Elariel apparently had a separate party ballroom, while House Venture had it's gatherings in the enormous main hall.?

?...the squat ballroom building?one of several low wings extending from the main keep...?

?The Elariel ballroom was very different from the majestic Venture grand hall. The dim room was only a single story high, and while it had a lot of stained-glass windows, they were all in the ceiling. Circular rose-window skylights shone from above, lit by small limelights on the roof. Each table was set with candles, and despite the light from above, there was a reserved darkness about the room. It seemed... private, despite the numerous people in attendance.?

?This room had obviously been designed to accommodate parties. A sunken dancing floor lay at it's center, and this was better lit than the rest of the room. There were two tiers of tables circling the dancing floor: The first tier was only a few feet above, the other was farther back and about twice as high.?

?The deep, crystalline colors from above projected patterns across tables and people, creating an impressive atmosphere, yet making it difficult to distinguish faces.?

No problem, happy to do my part. If you want, feel free to amalgamate what I've added to your post, and maybe we could get the admins to delete the other to clean things up a bit... Unless it's fine as is. Might as well leave it then.

Is Keep Elariel ever mentioned again? In one of the other books perhaps? Obviously, it would be nice if we had a Vin allomancy fight outside of it or something to show the exterior...
