Elder Scrolls Roleplay Thread: Characters

#1BellethorPosted 3/9/2013 6:55:35 PM(edited)
Let's play a game. The setting is 3rd era Cyrodiil, before the events of the Oblivion Crisis but after the events of Morrowind. You can make your own character, base them off a character you made in the game, do anything you want etc. Just try not to make them too overpowered, and if I give the character approval you can post in the main story thread. Just copy and paste this template and fill in your characters details. You can even post a picture of your character if you'd like. If ya'll are interested, then I'll post the main thread for us to post in and a link to the characters thread in the main thread.

Now the official rules are:
1.No taking control of other peoples characters, saying stuff like "the guards spot and kill darkportal" is not allowed
2. Don't post once and leave
3. Stay in character, act like you stated what your character acts like, do what you'd think your character would do etc.
4. If you wish to approve of something that can change the story in a major way, do it over a private message with the person you are doing it with and me. This way, a decision like killing someones character is taken care of professionally and not through arguments. You can send private messages by clicking on a users name and hitting "send PM" on the right hand side.
5. You can have multiple characters if you have shown you are a regular to the game.
6. When posting for the first time or with a new character in the main thread, take the page your characters info is on this thread and link it in your first post along with your characters name so we all know who you are.

NAME: Grec
RACE: Nord
AGE: 24
GUILD/GROUP/UNAFFILIATED: Unaffiliated, but occasionally takes jobs for the Fighters Guild, Companions and people in need
WEAPON/MAGIC OF PREFERENCE: A 2 Handed Nordic Greatsword enchanted with absorb health and stamina, nicknamed "Blood-Scythe", physical abilities enhanced by being a werewolf (he is strong enough to wield his greatsword with one hand), Beast Form

He had previously worked with the Companions of Whiterun, but never joined their group. A good friend of the Harbinger, he was granted the powers of Hircine as a token of friendship with the Circle. While undertaking a mission to reclaim a fort taken over by a infamous bandit group, he was captured, tortured and lost one of his eyes. He managed to escape out from the fort, but took out a good chunk of the bandit's leaders allies. The bandit's leader would not forget this, and he would go on to use his network of informants to discover Grecs identity and send the Dark Brotherhood after him. Grec has currently ran away into Cyrodiil and is searching for an old friend to help escape the Brotherhood's assassins.

PERSONALITY: He is rude, sardonic and abrasive to everyone he meets, and is quick to anger and fights, partly because of his upbringing in his teenage years as a merc without a family.

I'm guessing people will still be able to make characters after the "main thread" is started? I can't do anything right now, but this seems like it will be fun when I can get time.

Looks good, as long as you are not referring to the 4th era and the Dragon Crisis. Approved.

You certainly can, a link to this thread will be in the "main threads" original post, so if you want to join after the game has started you can go from that link.
