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.

This is a highly incomplete calendar of important events in the Final Empire. Please post me additional details, such as birthdates. This is so we can keep the massive explosion of events in an orderly manner, so we don't have to keep checking long histories on the character application.

The Calendar begins at the time of the Lord Ruler's Ascension. The year 918 is the present year. Years are the most specific we should get; do not list months. The transition from 917 (the previous year, where the Inquisition started) and 918 (the year of the RP) occurred a cycle or two before Julian Casuana died, so 918 begun very recently. As such, for dates of birth, just take 918 minus the age you marked in your character's application.

Events I am especially interested in: births of characters, deaths, marriages, divorces, alliances, contracts, direct House violence, etc.
