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.

In short, somebody Cassandolia should avoid without Caedrus around.

Well, #s 1 & 3 will become apparent in time, and more differences than those shown in the scenario in my last reply are going to be in the snippets. The speaker for the Q&A session alternates between Vale and a twin, with the exact twin also alternating. Suggestion noted, however. As for the sets, I came up with them to make finding my characters easier. They have no affect on the actual RP. I have another thread with the full explanation on it, but the gist of it is that each set has 8 characters, and there will be up to 8 posts per character before another set comes out. The friendship will be explained in Asharin's History section. The occupations are much like those of their Earth counterparts, except for Alchemy, which more resembles the Discworld version. Any other replies?

1) Comatose allowed the vestigial noble name.
2) The classification system I am using for family and friends describes their apps in relation for those of my other characters. To use Caedrus as an example: S1 is set 1, #1 is the first character in the set, and V5 means version 5 aka revision 4. My general app system: SN/#N/VN/(Application type if not for a PC)
3) Partly because of the twins' trades bringing them popularity in both Noble and Allomantic circles, partly because the Ladrian Twins are also both Mistings, and partly because of the fact that Bartholomew Ladrian is another co-founder of the crew Asharin helped found. In fact, the whole friendship is mainly because of Asharin.
4) The discourse is actually important - it amplifies the point that though Caedrus is interested in metallurgy, he hadn't gotten much research in, and Cassandolia's interests run differently. That's one way they're different.
In any case, thanks for the feedback. I will most certainly include more interactions between the twins' in the snippets.
The twins' comments:
Cassandolia: What about the time Caedrus blew up the Alchemist's Guild?
Asharin (Interrupting): He didn't move fast enough when the beaker started to bubble.
Caedrus: Really? I didn't do anything other than get fired from the Alchemist Guild chimney, and the only reason one of the large glass vessels in use got destroyed was an unforseen exothermic reaction!
Asharin: It blew up.
Caedrus: It may have blown up, but at least it came down again!
Cassandolia (Mockingly): Merry, 'twas a sharp retort!
Me: For the benefit of the readers, please explain the pun.
Cassandolia: There's sharp as in splinters and retort as in the alchemical vessel. The pun is due to the fact that the phrase 'sharp retort' also refers to a scathing answer.
Caedrus: It was actually an alembic, which makes it funnier!
Asharin: AGM, I think somebody's been reading Discworld books again.
Me: At least the Octavo and Necrotelecomnicon were left alone....
