The latter is what I was thinking, but the reason I said 'grandiose' is that given the way the FE is set up, you would have to do something truly drastic to make any place safe once the Steel Ministry/TLR discover it. The habitable area probably isn't big enough to hide forever, given that there are fights between TLR's armies/koloss and raiders on the burnlands edges.Herowannabe wrote: Also, your destiny doesn't have to be as big as "Make the world a safe place for allomancers." It can be something on a smaller scale, like "make a safe place for allomancers."
There are places in the Outer Dominances where the skaa are somewhat less oppressed and have somewhat more rights/ability to improve their lives, but even there, I think the Ministry is aware of it & would step in if skaa Allomancers started to be allowed.
With Allomancers and knowledge of a couple of secret metals (Chromium Leeching, Aluminum's ability to make anti-fGold-healing weapons) you could build a force to stop Inquisitors... but then TLR would eventually get annoyed enough to come crush you himself.
There are a couple of things that could work, but they're all really, really drastic.
