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.

Salutations, all. I'm Scriv. Some of you might know me as TPaS from Timewaster's Guide -- perhaps you don't. I'm hardly what you might call active, over there.

At any rate! I've followed Sanderson's work for a good few years now, since I was handed my first copy of Elantris. I hungrily devoured it and moved on to Mistborn, which has since become a major influence on my own writing. Can't say I'm sorry that it is, it being the great work of art that we all know and love. (Yes, I like to call myself a writer. No, I'm not published. Not yet, at least.)

So, what led me here? It's a bizarre story, actually, involving a horned owl and a very angry Hoid. I doubt you want to hear--

Kidding, of course. I followed Chaos's link on TWG.

Here's hoping we get some great roleplay going. See you around.

...bollocks, I only just noticed the "account = character" bit on the rules. I don't suppose I can get the account renamed once I finish the application?

Welcome!! I'm assuming your current screenname is a reference to the Alcatraz books? If so, awesome! If not, well.... boo. Haha!

You can call me Eriaan... or just Lauren. Probably easier that way. I play Eriaan, Maks, Perrin, and Delzen. Can't wait to write with you!

Thanks for the warm welcomes. Time for me to get working on a character.

Four days and no character inspiration. : /
This is getting a bit sad.

Well, we could use more skaa, and noone has done a kandra yet...

No feruchemists either...

There's a couple of Skaa Allomancers in the Kitchen of House Casuana, you could write up one of those...


for my first character, I cannibalized the character Kvothe from The Name of the Wind, Valkyn, a character from a book I'm writing, a little from Zane and Marsh, and added severe emotional trauma.

I think they mixed well...

I guess what I'm trying to say is take someone you love, combine it with something else, mix in some conflict and bake at 350 degrees for three and a half hours.

Hope I helped, but I somehow doubt it.

Or you could brainstorm with other members on the boards to come up with something a little more original. ;) Hit me up on AIM if you ever wanna chat, or just start a brainstorming thread here. We have plenty of fun, creative people who'd be willing to help you out.

No, no, no assistance is necessary -- the character itself was the easy part. I've managed to yet again root myself in writing a many-pages-long backstory. Will be done soon. Promise.

Computer barely functioning. Perhaps a few minutes' battery life left. Will join RP when it returns from the shop.
