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.

Below is our official list of "wanted" character types. It isn't the typical casting call: you won't find specific people here, but rather, a list of "gaps" in the site's demographics that need filling. We've also included some other desirable traits that we'd like to see more of in our character roster. If you need ideas for a character, try combining various elements off this list to see what different frameworks you can build for yourself, and then expand on them.

Also, please keep in mind that this isn't a list of the only characters we're currently accepting - it's just a list of a few blanks that need to be filled in. If you want to help us flesh out the world, or play something a little different, then this list is for you!

We currently need:
  • Characters who are unique for personal or situational reasons, rather than physical (especially combat-based) ones.
  • Bonus points if characters have average to weak combat skills.
  • Members of the skaa rebellion, preferably already recruited. PM Chaos to coordinate.
  • Members of the skaa underground. Comatose is forming one crew, or you can start your own.
  • Pretty much any skaa, period. Just make sure they have opportunity to interact with the other skaa who have already been accepted.
  • Obligators.
  • And by extension, obligators written by people willing to help come up with Ministry subplots.
  • Bonus points if the obligator is not an Inquisitor.
  • We're also looking for obligators who work in noble houses.
  • Nobles from families with a socioeconomic rating anywhere between 4 and 6. Click here to read more about the ratings.
  • Nobles from families who are attempting to ascend to Great House status.
  • Nobles between 24 and 60 years of age.
  • Skaa between 24 and 60 years of age.
  • Bonus points if either of the above are at least 30.
  • Characters with no powers.
  • Characters who, if they do have powers, have parents and/or siblings who do not.
  • Bonus points if they also have uncles/cousins/etc who do not have powers.
  • Characters who reside in the Luthadel outskirts.
  • Characters whose mothers didn't die in childbirth.
  • Characters who aren't badass loner types.
  • Bonus points if they aren't good at combat period.
  • Nobles who treat skaa badly.
  • For that matter, any characters who aren't good people.
  • And by extension, characters who are neither good people nor badass loners.
Please note that this list is an ongoing resource. The staff will update it as needed, so if you're looking to create a new character in the future, don't forget to check back here! If you have any questions or want to brainstorm, you're welcome to PM the appropriate member or post in the forums about it.
