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.

Welcome here!

I believe most hazekillers would be noble but there would be skaa hazekillers as well, so you'd be looking at a lower ranked noble or a skaa assigned to a House's military. House Raisaal specializes in haze killers, so that might be a House of interest if you want to play someone higher ranked

Hello Spidey! Welcome here.

Since we are dealing with Final Empire Era Scadriel, there shouldn't be too many spoilers for the Wax Nad Wayne series floating around. There might be a couple, but I can't think of any off hand.

Activity here tends to vary depending on how busy people are and whether people's free time coincides. Things have been slow lately, but new membership could change that.

Let us know if you have any questions and thanks for your interest.

Thanks for checking back Larocque. I don't know how I missed this.

The application is good construction wise, and I only have two world concerns.

(1) The father's knowledge of allomancy - He needs at least some sort of underworld connection, or other exposure to allomancy, I think, to know as much as he does. In the books, most skaa have heard of "allomancy magics" but wouldn't know specifics. Even if they know power portfolios you would need to explain how they know which metal matches with which power, and how they know which ratio makes the correct pewter alloy to fuel allomancy. This leads me to my second question.

(2) How is Gwenta getting her pewter and where does she get the money for it? Vin used the pewter she got from using dining utensils in small bursts to survive beatings, but these reserves took a long time to build up and were used up quickly. If Gwenta is regularly infesting pewter, instead of just using residual, she either needs a source of allomantic pewter or how to find it herself, or she would be making herself sick (see Kelsier's description of improperly mixed alloys in book one).

If you clear up those items, I think you would be ready to apply to the admins for your two approval votes.

Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any questions and sorry for the wait. We are still quite active on discord and do check the site fairly regularly, so if we are missing your topic you can always PM us or bother us on discord :). Sometimes I think we forget to scroll to the bottom of the page, or view something quickly and then forget to respond.

Daerra noticed Ferrah the moment she walked into the ballroom, and knew that it was time to put one of her schemes into action. Colette Hasting was growing too powerful in the Luthadel social scene--someone needed to do something to disrupt things and throw a little chaos into the mix. It was almost too perfect--everyone would know exactly what statement Ferrah was trying to make, wearing those colours to an Elariel ball. Daerra almost felt sorry for the girl, but that wouldn't stop her from making use of her.

"Aaron, we need to talk." Aaron turned from where he had been chatting with Mikhail--Daerra had plans for dealing with him as well, of course, but those would have to wait for another day.

"Yes of course," he said, nodding politely to Mikhail and then moving further down the table towards a spot where he and Daerra could have a modicum of privacy. "What's going on now? What social faux-pas have I committed now? I know it's not my outfit... do I have something in my teeth?"

Daerra rolled her eyes. How was Aaron so deft at getting under her skin? Perhaps, in a way, he really was their father's son, despite all their differences.

"It's about that woman you've been seeing. Ferrah Brehaut."

"Ferrah? What about her? Is she here?"

Daerra glanced covertly to the side, subtly indicating which direction Aaron should look in. "Don't let her notice you are looking." Aaron eyes flicked to the side and back.

"She's looking fetching tonight, isn't she? Is there something I'm not seeing."

"Her gown, dumb-dumb. She's wearing Elariel colours to an Elariel ball. She's basically declaring to the whole city that you and she are entering into a formal relationship. Please tell me you haven't done something foolish and given her a handkerchief or something." Daerra was fairly certain no tokens of affection had been exchanged--Aaron was notoriously wary of commitment, and Daerra's spies would have caught something that important. It always paid to be certain, and planting the idea that people had been whispering about handkerchiefs in Aaron's head wouldn't hurt either.

"Lord Ruler, of course not! I mean, we've barely been courting for over a week! Ferrah's nice, and pretty as polished silver, but I've barely gotten to know her. You haven't heard anything have you?" Aaron ran his hand through his hair, an nervous tick. "We kissed in the carriage the other night. It was enjoyable, but I thought we were just having fun. What do you think gave her the idea that... that..."

"That there's a union in the works?" Aaron gulped. "I honestly have no idea Aaron, but we should take care of this before is spirals out of control."

Aaron nodded. "Yes, you're right of course. But what should I do? She's a really sweet person--I don't want to hurt her feelings."

"Don't worry about her feelings Aaron. Rejection might sting a little, but she'll be fine. You've only gone to a few balls together--she should know better than to jump to such conclusions." Daerra tapped a finger against her cheek, pretending to brainstorm a solution. "No need to do anything explicit. Why not just ask someone else to dance? You two aren't formally involved, so it wouldn't be taboo, and it would let her safe face instead of rejection her outright. She can play off her wardrobe choice as a bold statement, without letting on that she misread your feelings for her."

"Dance with someone else? Are you sure? Doesn't that seem a little cold?"

"Aaron, trust me. Taking her aside and speaking with her might only fuel her fantasy, and spark gossip. Avoiding her at this stage keeps you free of any scandal." Daerra forced her eyes to light up, as if an idea she'd been nursing for months had just occured to her. "I know, why not ask Colette to dance?"

"Her best friend? Daerra, I know I can be clueless, but that seems like the worst possible person to ask."

"Exactly, Colette is Ferrah's best friend. Who better to pass a message along? During your dance, you can tell Colette what happened, that while you've enjoyed Ferrah's company you aren't ready for something so serious, and that perhaps you should take a break from seeing each other. Colette can pass the message along, and Ferrah can save face without sparking more gossip than she already has."

"I guess that make sense, but won't she think the worst as soon as I approach Colette? I really don't want to make a scene."

"I'll keep my eye on her, and intervene if need be. Don't worry, at least one of us knows how to be subtle."

Aaron nodded. "All right, you do know best." He shook his head, "Honestly, I don't know how I keep getting myself into these situations. What would I do without you?"

"I don't know," she said, allowing herself to laugh. "But really, what are big sister's for, if not to keep their brother's out of trouble?"
