I have not read all of this thread but I can see that there have been some issues. Whatever, evidently it's reopened and I hope everyone's friends again.

For me, I am now interacting with my second character in Cyrodiil, albeit a reluctant one - (she would rather be someplace else).
Personally I never thought that I would ever have more than one, so Eilidh is a pleasant surprise.

I do not lightly "create" characters in games as I think that once you bring them to life you owe them something until they end, but that's just me.
If you have one or many it should not matter, you get out what you put in and that's all.

Maybe you have multiple characters to explore different facets and dynamics. All good.
Maybe you have one, or a few, that you nurture and develop organically. Equally awesome.

Whatever works, works.
And that's it.

No worries, we've got that behind us.

This is awesome. I've always wanted to see what would happen if some of the 'married folk' decided to start dating, or go all the way and re-marry somebody else. :wink:

wink.gif
Well it's early days for marriage, but I am having a good time getting to know her, so who can say?
Princess Grumpy could fill the hole left by You-Know-Who...

[edit] Niamh's story ended because it ended. She exists only in memory as an individual who once lived in Cyrodiil, for a time. Her impact on other inhabitants may continue, as tangentially Eilidh might notice, but she will not.
I will not lie, intellectually I found it "difficult" when she died as it was not what I expected, genuinely. But no one lasts forever; not me, not her, not anyone.
She is gone and the time for looking back at her is over. Now someone new has arrived in my imagination and in the gameworld. Will they fill that gap? Time will tell, but I am pretty positive they will; Eilidh is a spoiled Princess, but she is also a hardened and feisty warrior.
I have a feeling that she is going to to be a lot of fun.

Quite how, remains to be seen...

Good closing on Niamh there. You put it quite well; no one lives forever. Strangely enough though I feel like I needed to say goodbye to her while I could and now itīs too late... Oh well kvleft.gif

I hope I do. I like a good story donīt get me wrong, but I find it easier to keep track of a character through shorter updates smile.gif
Needless to say though, I donīt wanna be the guy who holds back your creativity or anything. Maybe Grumpy (Iīm gonna call her that now! laugh.gif ) deserves her own fanfic thread like Niamh?

Btw, how in godīs name did you come up with her full name?

We'll see, she is a different kettle of fish to Niamh; a different character entirely, so it's more than possible that updates could be briefer. She has baggage, but not in the same way - then again...
Time will tell wink.gif
She will absolutely have her own fanfic thread yes indeed; Eilidh daughter of Mac Auley is a character whom I have every confidence in.

As for her name?
Well, at the risk of being a bit crass, that's her name. It genuinely is who she is: she is a Princess from across the Ocean. Daughter of a king. This is what her name reflects - (there's an upcoming update about this).
I think the two of us are going to have some interesting times...

One of these days we'll have to do an archeological dig through all the CU and Today threads to get an accurate answer of of CT's characters.

glargg probably has more characters in total, but most of these are inactive. CT's were mostly all active, at least.

All right... I started off just counting them off of the save manager on OBMM, but then I had to add a bit of detail, because I just have this compulsion to blather on about my characters, so, in chronological order:

1. Bob - Breton male, Jack of all trades. My first character - overleveled, did everything, no personality.

2. Jean - Redguard male, sword and board. Erratic and violent, went to the Shivering Isles and never left.

3. Claudia - Redguard female, stealth war axe fighter. My first female character - happy and enthusiastic, short attention span, genuinely loves people. Uses the Innocent voice set.

4. Tim - Breton male, destruction mage. Superhumanly powerful pure mage - nothing and no one in Cyrodiil can even come close to challenging him. Mostly retired to the AU.

5. Kyla - Dunmer female, claymore/heavy armor fighter. Retconned to be Dave's younger sister. The destruction of their family and home left her determined to uphold justice and protect the weak. She's noble, brave, kind and a bit sad. I respect her more than any other character I've ever played.

6. Bogmok gro-Lob - Orc male, pure mage. Woefully insecure and morose, mediocre skills, mostly retired.

7. Clive - Imperial male, mage/assassin. Thoroughly vile and despicable - arrogant, cowardly and cruel.

8. Dave - Dunmer male vampire, shortsword assassin. Kyla's older brother - the destruction of their family and home left him bitter, and he became very ruthless and very deadly.

9. Mindi - Bosmer female, battleaxe fighter. An intense ball of energy - alternately friendly and brutal. Probably not entirely sane. Uses Imoen's voice set.

10. Hale - Nord male. Warhammer fighter. Literally dumb as a post. Can't use magic, doesn't sneak, just blunders along until something hurts him, then he hits it until it stops, then he rests until he feels better.

11. Vorlin - Bosmer male, bow and axe hunter. Fearful loner, only comfortable in the wilderness. Doesn't do quests at all - doesn't even talk to people more than is necessary to sell the hides he collects and potions he brews.

12. Lydia - Breton female, sword and board. Charming and upbeat pale ginger. Used a bit of magic early in her career but always wanted to be a pure swordfighter. Never got very strong, but did get VERY skilled with the blade. Mostly retired and living in Cheydinhal.

13. Maelyn - Dunmer female, pure mage. A retired courtesan, fabulously wealthy, sultry, seductive and very powerful. And mute - not just in the sense that all player characters are, but literally mute - cannot, or at least does not, speak.

14. Tina - Imperial female, sword and board. Erratic personality with an overdeveloped sense of duty, torn between the desire to escape her bad decisions and the need to carry through on her commitments. Lost, lonely, sad, fascinating.

15. Sees-Two-Fish - Argonian male, dagger fighter. Carries a set of enchanted daggers and swaps between them depending on the situation, so plays sort of like an on-touch mage except that he delivers "spells" with daggers instead of his hands. Refuses to wear armor (or much for clothes for that matter). Probably not sane.

16. Jana - Nord female, destruction/mace battlemage/paladin. As close as a human can get to a goddess - very proud and very powerful.

17. Z'ren - Khajiit male, stealth melee. A pure sneak fighter - dual wields (to the degree that Oblivion allows) short swords and won't fight any other way. Doesn't care for armor much but isn't a purist about it.

18. Jeff - Breton male, pure pacifist. Pretty much unplayable, since he's a true pacifist. He not only can't kill, but can't even do anything that could lead to someone or something being killed, so he can't even leave the IC. If it was Earth instead of Nirn, he'd smoke a lot of pot and go to drum circles.

19. Lorl gra-Ornug - Orc female, battlemage. Surprisingly sweet and friendly for an Orc - is actually VERY intelligent and has cultivated that image.

20. Jibran - Redguard male, claymore swordfighter. Fiercely proud - refuses to wear armor because he believes that that would imply that he doesn't trust his blade skills. Very fast, very agile, very skilled, very deadly.

21. Henry - Dunmer male, stealth hand-to-hander. Very monk-like. My long-time avatar on the Bethsoft forums.

22. Lud gro-Dalum - Orc male, ex-adventurer turned thief - bow and mace. Scruffy and disreputable and a bit of a social climber, but not a bad sort really.

23. Arlowe Clanler - Imperial male - entirely random character - everything done with dice rolls. Middle aged petty thief and arena gambler.

24. Hanna - Little Elf female. Archer, conjurer (mostly animals) and a bit of blade. Quiet and stand-offish - just doesn't seem to like people much.

25. Cressida - Little Elf female, claymore/bow fighter. Cool and aloof golden-skinned blonde. Very competent, serious and self-contained.

26. Rydri - Redguard female, spellsword. Sweet but a bit rough around the edges. For some reason, is a target for bears (she was even attacked by one in the lobby of the Tiber Septim).

27. Dawn - Breton female, battlemage with a claymore. Spoiled "princess" - self-centered and difficult, but a decent person all in all.

28. Lemdel - Altmer barbarian - battle axe and bow. Disdains magic and prides himself on his physical strength. And his skill with women.

29. Dun - Imperial male, longsword fighter. Good natured, somewhat seedy, surprisingly competent when he wants to be. Travels with a female Bosmer archer named Sara who tries to keep him in line.

30. Ughoth gro-Sharam - Orc male, pure mage. Haughty, arrogant, very practical, very determined, very powerful.

31. C'mala - Khajiit female, sort of a stealth spellsword - mostly Illusion and a war axe. Quiet and intense - don't know much about her yet.

32. Mu-teel - Argonian female, bow, sword and destruction fighter. Kind to her friends - ruthless to her enemies. Just very straightforward and very efficient.

33. Belladonna - Little Elf female, illusionist/archer. Fiery redhead glass cannon. Uses the Annah voice set.

34. Elenin - Altmer female, I don't know yet. She looks so sad that it breaks my heart, but I have no real idea who she is yet. Included just because I know I'm going to play her.

So... 34.

I remember a lot of those hall of famers gpstr! Especially Hale, Mindi, Dave, and of course Kyla, who I still think is swoonage material.

I checked the profiles in Wrye Bash, and I have 31 of those. They represent the characters I played long enough to justify keeping (average 100 hours or so) and there would be a lot more that lasted less. Most of the NPC's in my mods were played as characters for a time. There's at least one of each race, and both genders of most races.

Clark is two of them, as I started a new game when he got a name. There's also a profile just called "Reporter"

I am up to 22 now, and updated my post on the first page of this thread. Added all 4 of my PC characters so far. I plan on making maybe a couple more this summer.

Ummm let's see --

Julian of Anvil (Redguard) - at least seven different times, including her current play through on the Mac Pro

Tallei (from Leyawiin- Breton) - four times

Alise Sudmeri (Morrowind via Cheydinhal, now my main Skyrim PC - Dunmer) - once (in Oblivion, that is. Not counting Skyrim incarnations.)

An Imperial Warrior

A Nord Sellsword

The last two were played through just once - the Imperial did the Thieves Guild, the Nord the Arena and Dark Brotherhood questlines, and both pretty much forgettable, which is why I don't remember their names . . .

Wow! I think I have more of the De Fault sisters in Skyrim than that! They're my generic test characters for my mods, and they're all red-haired Bretons, but that's about all they have in common. There's Flora, Fiona, Fanny, Floozie, Felicia, Faye, a Few more.

I'd made a save at the Helgen exit, who was a male Nord called Fred De Fault, who had nothing changed from what the game picks for you. Then I open the save, type "showracemenu" in the console, and make a real test character. The "De Fault" part says Breton, and I needed females for the mod I was testing at the time, but now they've become a habit.

Since my latest project is Argonian Hearthfires, I'll probably have as many Argonians soon.
