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.

Here's how it works: I have three dice. Actually I have a lot more than that, but this game only uses three. You volunteer for the challenge, and I roll the dice. I give you the results, and you write a character based on them. Here's a breakdown of the dice and what they affect:

D8/D10/D12: Allomantic ability. The D8 includes the eight basic metals, the D10 includes the possibility of not being an Allomancer, and the D12 includes atium and gold, as well as the potential to not be an Allomancer at all. If you request the D12, your character might wind up as an obligator, as Seers/Augurs are not known outside the Ministry. If you don't request a specific die, I will default to the D10.

Skaa/Noble (Optional): If you wish, I'll roll the numbered die again. If you get an even result, your character is noble. Odd, your character is a skaa. I will only do this with the D8 and D10 options; having skaa Seers/Augurs doesn't really make much sense.

Gender (Optional): If asked, I'll roll the numbered die one more time. If the result is even, your character is female. Odd, they're male.

Attribute Development: The six faces on the die are Weak, Underdeveloped, Typical, Improved, Superior, and Maximum. I will roll this die once* for the following attributes: Social Skills, Combat Ability, and Resources. If asked, I will also roll for Allomantic Skill.

*Based on participant suggestions, I might add more categories to this section. If this happens, I will likely start restricting the results to only include a maximum of one "Maximum" and "Weak" result each to keep things balanced.

Friend/Foe (Optional): Give me the name of one of your characters, or if another player consents, the name of one of their characters. This die will decide whether the two characters are, well, friends or foes.


But what are the prizes? Other than having a shiny new character to play with, you will be entitled to use this shiny badge in your character's sig or at the bottom of their app:

I'm sure you're all just thrilled with your prize. :P

I'll take the challenge. D10 please. I think you should add a skaa/noble option. If you do, I would like you to do that for me as well. If you do and it's a noble, I would like you to do House Bulvier as a friend/foe. Whether or not they're a skaa or noble, though, or if you decide not to do that, I would like to see if Wilor is a friend or foe. Sorry if this is really complicated. Thanks!

Alright, our first taker! I don't have a skaa/noble die, so what I'll do is roll the numbered die. Even, it's a noble. Odd, it's a skaa. I can only do this with the D8 and D10 options though; having a skaa Seer doesn't make any sense in the context of the world. Anyways! Here are your results:

You are a skaa with no Allomantic powers.

Social Skills: Superior
Combat Ability: Underdeveloped
Resources: Weak

You are a friend of Wilor Zerrung.

Sort of a challenging result, but this could be a really interesting character. I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

I purposely left it vague, so that people who are taking the challenge can still have some flexibility in how they interpret it. In the Mistborn Adventure Game though, resources can be anything from money to reputation to social connections.

I don't want to tell you what to do with your own character, but just as an example, one way you might interpret your result is that you have a young, up-and-coming crewleader. His superior social skills can translate into good leadership or a good ability to con people (or both!), but his low resource score might indicate that he's just starting out. He wouldn't have made a name for himself yet, or made the connections that the more experienced crewleaders have. He would have to earn these things via RP rather than starting out with them.

That's just one idea out of many, but I hope that helps clear things up a bit. :)

Ok, thanks for clarifying. I actually am already working on a crewleader but I have plans for him and he has to be experienced. But I'll do something with this character.

I've only just submitted my first character app, but I wouldn't mind having a few ideas to throw around for further characters at some point. So sure, roll me a D10 and do a roll for noble/skaa.

Also, no mistborn option? I guess you'd want to do a 2d10 or a 3d10 for a number like 1,99,999 (a border number).

Mistborn are, I believe, not allowed before you have proven yourself with three other approved characters.

Also, can I use this to figure out a character I partially already have?
Is an insane A.I.
