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 Topic: Susa Ereh

04 September 2018 - 11:50 PM

Hello Epants.

Thank-you for your work on this, and for your interest in our RP. A couple of us staff have reviewed Susa, and feel there is some work to do on him before he can be accepted into the RP. I will note a few key things I noticed here, but would recommend you post him in the workshop so you can get feedback from our wider membership, or try out discord and discuss him with members there.

(1) The RP is set around 100 years before the events of the Final Empire. At this time, Duralumin is not known to the general population, and we do not allow Duralumin Gnats as characters. That being said, it would be open to you to head-canon Susa as a Duralumin Gnat, but he should not be aware of his status.

(2) Flaring Duralumin and becoming a savant does not replicate the use of the other metals. It's tough joining a new community and knowing how much you can play with what is in the books. I know for one of my first characters, I had her using Bronze to discover things that Bronze cannot detect, and had to make edits before she was accepted. In this RP, we stick pretty closely to canon uses of the powers. In a misting, Duralumin is useless, as it can only enhance already burning metals. While I don't think Susa would have the opportunity to become a savant, even if he could, he would not achieve the effect you describe.

On Susa's savant status, please see this section from the Character Application Thread:


We are not currently accepting new Mistborn, Inquisitors, or Allomantic Savants for a first character. Mistborn and Inquisitors are large commitments, for one thing, but more importantly, characters should be more than just an Allomancer. Make them well-rounded people first, and magic users second. So, for first characters, we'd rather see your skill with making people, and then move up to Mistborn for a later character, if you'd like. Remember, you can always be a Misting! Though, on that note, you can't be Mistings of the undiscovered metals, and if you want to be a Seer or Augur, please clear it with an administrator first.

In all honesty, your application of duralumin, if allowed, would also be inconsistent with the reasons we do not allow Mistborn as first characters. If Susa is basically a Mistborn in all but name, our rationale for not allowing Mistborn as first characters would also apply to him. I know you are likely not intentionally attempting to skirt our rules, but if we allowed this character as is, that is, in effect, what we would be allowing you to do.

(3) Realmatic Theory is not a current area of study known to the general populace, so we generally do not accept characters with such knowledge, absent compelling reasons, due to their ability to break the story.

If you have any questions about the above, please let me know. I look forward to working on this character with you further, and hope to see you around the Workshop or on Discord!

In Topic: Mercenary House: Information, Assassinations, Allomancers, Soldiers

Good to see you getting involved with some plotting Epants.

We already have a fairly major mercenary house (specializing in hazekillers) in Raisaal. As they are a great house, you will need to consider House Ereh's relationship with them carefully if mercenary work is to be a viable financial avenue. That being said, there is probably a high need for mercenaries in the empire, so there is probably room for Ereh.

On the assassination point, note that, while assassinations are common in the Final Empire, they are not necessarily out in the open. House Ereh will likely need some sort of cover business (likely general mercenary work) in order to market assassination services with the required discretion.

Just some general comments as you get started on this, but I do like the idea.

Hello EPants!

Welcome here! For advice, I would suggest reviewing the threads that are linked in the Navigation sidebar on your left handed side of the screen. Another good thing to do, if you are able, would be to check out our Discord Server, where lots of staff and players hang out to discuss character creation and to help you make a character that will fit with our project.

You may also want to check out the Workshop, where you can get feedback about potential characters you are building.

In Topic: Hello everyone! I'm planning on joining soon

04 September 2018 - 11:24 PM

Welcome here Mac (better late than never)! Feel free to chat on discord if you would like to discuss getting involved here (we tend to be online there more often).

We are more active on Discord - if you hop on there you can discuss!

If you aren't there, I think KChan would be the person to talk to.
