Whelp, I'm back after a VERY lengthy hiatus and was saddened when I looked in at the RP forum and saw that there'd been no activity for over a year. SO I decided to start this thread, both as a way of finding out jsut how many people here are interested in starting up a new RP, as well as come with decent tips/ideas/desires so on and so forth...I'll just start shall I?
Tellie wishes for: BIG RP, meaning that we'll not have to restrict ourselves to one tiny city, or region so on so forth. At least an entire province if not more, while I love MW and Skyrim provinces I'd love to partake in an RP set in Summerset Isles or High Rock.
I'd also like for everyone to make their charaters the way he/she wants to make said characters, (previous experiences have taught me that even the 'op' chars get into trouble more often than not). Making your char the way YOU want to makes it easier for you to participate, and as such let all of us have fun, still no God modding though, or I'll have to bribe Minque to bring the Banhammer (I have hugs and brown cheese for you Minque if it ever comes to that )
Lastly and MOST importantly is for everyone to have fun doing this. So please, those who are interested in starting up a new RP come together and let's make a story.
I'll join. Sounds interesting. I'm in.
Sadly, RP's don't last long here. Not many members, you see.
With Liz and Colonel Mustard gone, and I'm not too sure about Uleni, I don't know that this'll get anywhere, unfortunately.
But I'm a sucker for attempts to kick this section back to life, so count me in.
Hi Tellie! Wonderful to see you back and trying to breathe some life into our RP section.
Although I’ve written a rather fair amount of fanfic, I’m quite the novice at RP. I’ve only participated in two – both here at chorrol. And both ended the same way, as too many players faded away from each RP for us continue.
Being an optimist however, I am certainly interested in participating in another RP where players can, hopefully, ‘stay the course’. My one and only character is a mystic archer. She plays well with others in a supporting role and can fit readily into most any party. Based on your first post, it sounds that you (like me) are interested in a TES-based RP.
Hmm, well at least we have a start of 4 people
To kick off why don't we all chip in with suggestions and/or desires. I'll go first.
Timeline: Either in the years between TESIV and V or perhaps a few years after Skyrim (if we go by Stormcloak victory then Tamriel could REALLY be in turmoil)
Provinces, MW/Skyrim or Cyrodiil/Skyrim/MW. I doubt Summerset Isles would be the best place considering the nazi like state of things there atm. The only people I could foreseeably see in Summerset other than slaves would be fellow members of the dominion.
'Main Quest'...figure something out as we go along? Haven't thought about that atm. Good starting point would be the classic D&D fashion of our (un)lucky heroes meeting in a dodgy tavern somewhere and forced to work together as events conspire outside of their control.
No 'Dovakhiin' characters...the Dragonborn in Skyrim is supposed to be the last one for a reason, having a bunch of characters then running about shouting thuums left right and centre would be a bit foolish.
Name: No clue really, lets try to agree on at least a basic plot, time/place of start first at the very least.
Yeah, she left a while back, after a post in the Coffee Shop thread.
As for the rp;
I'd prefer something set closer to Oblivion than Skyrim. I'm a sucker for Telvanni characters, and they're somewhat scarce by the time of Skyrim.
Another rp in Skyrim? Seems they're in every forum I go on. At this rate I might have to go against my decision not to buy the game, just to see where everyone's rping But, Morrowind's on the list, so I'm happy
As for the plot, what sort of scale are we talking about here? The big, Elder Scrolls events of the games, or something smaller?
Morrowind sounds nice. But Telvanni? We don't need their scum! I'd vote for a timeline closer to Oblivion, too. And Tellie, also be aware that we don't need a huge-scale crisis to RP in. Something small and contained suffices. If we chose Third Era Morrowind, will it be before, during or after the Oblivion Crisis? If we do agree to go there, after all?
I'd prefer small-scale, but big scale doesn't shy me away either.
I choose either Morrowind or Cyrodiil. If we roll with Cyrodiil(depending on the timeline) I might just have to add a sixteen unexperienced farm boy
If we go to Morrowind, well, things might be more adventurous there . . . in that ugly, ashy, Dark-elf filled land.
I’d be fine with anything TES, I’m sure. That said, I do have a few thoughts –
I join DE in urging that we consider a small scale / limited mission RP. Given chorrol’s history with RP’s I should think we might fare better with a smaller / shorter RP. Perhaps if we get a successful ‘completion’ under our belt, it might improve the chances of success with a more ambitious project?
As far as location, I am most comfortable in either Cyrodiil or Skyrim.
Buffy can travel time rather freely, so which era is not critical to us.
The (apparently) common start of adventurers meeting in a tavern seems effective and flexible to me. Bear in mind that as an RP novice, such a tried and true starting venue is still new and fresh to me.
Wel you guys have given me something to work with so I shall do me best to cook something up. For now I'll make a character thread at least so that everyone can post their character.
Y'know, I'm gonna have to throw together a Telvanni character. Either a Sorcerer or a Nightblade, haven't decided yet.
SAY NO MORE
[ULENI HAS JOINED YOUR PARTY]
I have been waiting for this.
Quality RP with quality folks. No more shall I partake in low level RPs in other sites where the main focus is sex between hormonal characters.
I thank you, mistress Tellie, for giving us the breath of life yet again. Hail, Giver of Life! Hail, Mistress of a New Dawn!
...thinking back to the moments where I've been unfortunate enough to stumble across some ERP in an MMO you're probably right *shudders* Zank ze True Tribunal zat we do not allow such zhings 'ere (what do you think? Do I have a future as a Breton? I always thought of them as the 'French' of TES)

And please, make your char like you want (I know for a fact that you can do a VERY good job at making a baggage char that in some way or another proves useful)
Tellie, I'm loving the simple, elegant first post for the actual RP. As you say, if read carefully, everything we need to know is carefully woven in there. An RP prominently featuring mead has to be fun!
Buffy's character sheet is
Right, my character's drawn up, let me know if you want anything changed.
Since we've got two old Dunmer in Cyrodiil, I vote we rename the rp "No Country for Old Mer"
Urgh, my post is going to be one ugly mother of a bastard
Some randoms so far -
In reviewing my first post, I just realized that I 'committed' the setting to late in the afternoon or perhaps early in the evening. I hope that is not a problem and I can edit it to earlier in the day if needed.
I'm assuming it is okay to take some 'control' of standard NPCs (like the innkeeper, Maenlorn) during interactions. But I'm also assuming the big bearded Nordic NPC is being controlled by Tellie. Correct me if I'm wrong (I'm a novice at this RP stuff, remember?).
CT, I did see your first post before you edited it away and thought it was perfect. It gave your character the perfect reason to to to the Flowing Bowl. Just my two septims.
DE, so neat that you are using a younger Kraven!
Naturally any NPC (unless stated otherwise like Njaal) can be 'intereacted' with and 'controlled by all of us.
Right, that's better. Post re-written.
My character sheet is now complete! Now all I need to do now is make an entry post in the Playground thread and this party is allllll seeeeeet.
So which character is she going to be latching onto?
The incident with running away from a beating...did it involve a sweetroll
@Callidus Thorn: All of you, of course! She's going to learn how to be a grim and brooding hunter from Dee Dee; she's going to learn how to be a brash and bloodthirsty maniac from Athyn; she's going to learn how to be a ray of sunshine from Buffy; and she's going to learn how to be a crabby and callous Mage from Eddy.
This is, like, going to be a Bildungsroman of sorts for this character as the RP progresses. A new challenge and departure from the types of characters I normally use haha
@Tellie: Alongside the sweet roll, it also involved Cakes. And we all know how Cakes lie.
Tellie, not quite sure what edibles Athyn’s referring to here -
'His nose suddenly twitched and he stared at what the Bosmer was eating. "Where did you procure that"? Athyn asked as he felt his mouth water.'
Buffy finished a grilled slaughterfish steak and Maenlorn removed her plate. The only thing edible in front of her is a partial goblet of Tamika red.
Kraven’s dishes still remain, but he is largely done with his meal of ‘two loaves of bread, cheese-wheel, mutton and cheap wine.'
Let me know exactly what has caught the old Dunmer's attention and I’ll be happy to work with anything.
Bugger...runs off to edit.
*returns with a blast*
Edit hath been finished.
He is. He really is.
Reminds me of... Monk-Boy for some reason.
Oh, and fyi, since it seems to be mealtime in Anvil "the usual" included a meal. I was hoping to avoid mentioning what it was, since I don't know jack about cooking
And, I have to ask... Monk-Boy?
Edit; I Wonder, could it be considered a bad sign that I seem to have something of a knack for writing these kinds of arrogant bastards?
I'm sorry, but without a tip, I don't think Dilemma is inclined much to give you your meal. But I am a nice person so I'll give it to you in my next character post; just don't mind the spit *evil laughter*
As for who Monk-Boy is... Ask Dee Dee (DE) for that one, CC Lemon No.1
He'll probably rant about how order and discipline must be maintained throughout the Empire by pressing molten metal rod against the genitals of the Empire's enemies, too.
DE, I do remember Buffy wanting to style it like the Scorpion King (The Rock) back in another RP I think it was.
And then the three fight it out* to become the supreme ruler of Tamriel?
*Via whatever devious and malevolent means they have at their disposal, of course.
Of course, of course. Dark Lords rarely brook an equal to exist, after all! Haha
And the three of them would probably wreak more carnage than the Oblivion Crisis
Wait.... Are we leaving Cyrodiil?
Nope, we are going to have to track them down in Cyrodiil, as I 'said' (wrote) the border north to Skyrim has been closed for some reason (reason will be explained IC) and Morrowind's border has also been sealed due to the increasing blight.
Since the RP has been launched and is doing well, I've taken the liberty of renaming this thread from a generic 'New RP Discussion' title to reflect our new RP by name. This is not only consistent with the other two threads associated with this RP, but may help avoid possible confusion when starting any future 'New RP' projects.
On an unrelated note, I am loving Dilemma right now. I just made her up to be a useless waif wanting to be an adventurer but now, as I get to know her character better, she's showing me stuff about her that I haven't completely designed for her. Don't you just love it when your character finally opens up? :S
Aww, that's wonderful news, Uleni. I'm so pleased that you and Dilemma are connecting so well. That is such a great help when trying to make creative magic!
I have a feeling that Athyn despite his best intentions will find himself somewhat...fond of Dilemma (in that crazy uncle/eccentric grandfatherly way) XD
You guys better connect with Dilemma while you still can though. I've got plans for her, you see, and possibly a personal quest of you guys are interested
There goes the neighbourhood
DE, are you working on a post? It kind of 'feels' like Kraven's 'turn' at the table and Athyn does have a question open to us. I can certainly post if you like - the elven chatterbox never runs out of things to say, and she does indeed have some more questions. But I'll keep her on her hands until I hear (or see) whether you plan to post next.
And Uleni, I love Dilemma's spy kitty!
Yes. Sorry about the delay. This weekend was hectic. I'll cook up a post.
No need to apologize. I don't mind a bit if an RP runs at a leisurely pace - as long as it keeps running. Seriously, I simply wanted to make sure you weren't waiting on me to post again before you.
Well, this is more confrontational than I'd expected
Three dark elves in this RP. . . Good thing this is before Kraven was a slave to the Telvanni . . .
Yeah, the monopoly of characters is being dominated by our dark elves so much that I'm thinking of introducing another character of another race. Just to add variance you know.
I am sorely tempted to ask Acadian to change the name for No Country fo Old Mer now XD
Ha! That's two votes
One more gets us a majority
Yeah, sure. Why not?
Be careful what you ask for, DE. Next thing we know, Athyn will restrict the expedition to Dunmer only. Then Kraven and Buffy will be stuck trying grab themselves a gig taking care of rats for the Fighters Guild.
Hehe. Sounds like quite an adventure, though . . . wouldn't you say?
Tellie, I don't mean to rush you, but...
Actually, I kind of do
hehe, been a very Heavy day of work today (and yesterday) Will post tomorrow when I Wake up and have gotten some coffee into my system.
Well... This one died quick.
Do you know something I don't, DE? It seems a little early to call it.
Yeah, I'm just waiting for Tellie to post. If she doesn't today, I'mma do mine and post it sometime this evening.
Sorry guys, there is REALLY bad Connection up here on the mountaint (easter holiday of skiing) Which is why I haven't posted. I'm going back tomorrow evening Norwegian time. (I am forced to Write this on my rather crappy phone).
Anyway happy easter
Happy Easter, Tellie, and thanks for the update.
Welp, I'm gonna wait for Tellie then. It's kind of a cop-out on my part but damnit, Dilemma is being unhelpful AF
Sounds like you have quite the...
Is there room for an Imperial mage and healer? WHO also is very good at casting spelas....sweet ones or very verynasty ones.....
And one of the old guard returns!
Eh....yes, I felt that urge for RP.....been so long...
*hugs Minque* You're most welcome to join...only question I have is why Rianne is in Cyrodiil when she is living in Ald Rhuun
Heheh, another Dunmer!
No country for Old Mer
Does anyone second the motion XD
Too many young Mer for that.
It's Children of Mer now
Well...I posted my reply XD
Who be next?
Methinks that Tellie, DE and I are at the table waiting for CT to respond to a question?
In the meantime, it would seem that Uleni or minque could post, possibly making progress to the tavern?
I'll take down two birds with one stone and have Dilemma make progress towards the tavern while giving Minque an opening to interact with me.
I... Think I'm just gonna continue ... Over to where the others.. Are? Still gonna wait one day for Minque tho
Is Minque even in this? She doesn't seem to have been online since she posted her character, who appears to be in the wrong province?
Is she? Maybe Minque's description was just a tad bit vague. Anyway, if she's still not gonna post, then I will and continue on to the frozen conversation in the Flowing Bowl.
Which reminds me.
Where is Tellie????
That's actually a good question...
Sorry about my absense. I've been completely overworked since I returned from my holiday as such I've not managed to muster up the strength (or will) to do anything. (14 hour shifts will do that for you)
The rest of the management team has fortunately returned now so I'm back to a more regular schedule. Also, has anyone heard anything else from minque?
Well, according to her profile she's not been online since she posted her character. If you haven't heard from her, I would think it's safe to say she's not going to participate.
Oh, this is very surprising indeed. This never happened before.
Thanks for your kind words DE! I won't deny I have been absent and away...truth is I got sort of cold feet, the last RP I was participsting in, ended up pretty catastrophic....so Im not sure abort this..
Oh btw, what do you mean, Rianne is in the wrong place? She lives in Aldru'n, but the plan is to let her start out in Anvil, tis possible to travel you know
So dont give up hope on me just yet!
Hee! This is like herding cats! Now that minque is back, Tellie has disappeared!
Minque, I think the group we have in this RP are all wonderfully supportive so I wouldn't worry about troubles or conflicts among us. Our only challenge is, like I allude to above, keeping everyone active and posting in the RP. I think DE was just reflecting a bit of the frustration that both he and I share from being 'left at the altar' several times during RPs here as others have faded away during ongoing RPs. The fix is everyone being here and posting!
If I'm not mistaken, I thought Uleni was going to try and work with you to bring both your characters into the tavern perhaps together. It does kind of seem like we're stuck at the moment pending the arrival of your and Uleni's characters.
Ok! Well I'll re-read the rp thread and see what char Uleni has created....then I'll make a starting post with Rianne, and see what will come out of that. I could pm Uleni....hmmmm yes as you see I have a plan!
*shuffles in nervously* I am back after a well deserved...I'd call it holiday but that would be misleading, it certainly wasn't enjoyable for the most part, from climbing Mt.Manaslu in the Himalayans.
Summiting was awesome and awe inspiring beyond belief, but most of the trip was a nightmare. cold, windy, altitude sickness, vomiting, the runs...expeditions to the himalayans are way more taxing than you'd think and I have experienced 'extreme' expeditions before, the hardest one so far was in antarctica.
Anywho, if people are still willing I am more than happy to continue the RP
And Id like to apologize for forgetting to send word that I was leaving...too excited you see.
Well, I certainly wouldn't object to continuing. I'm kind of going into rp withdrawal
But dragging Uleni back might pose something of a problem.
Oh? what have I missed
Nothing, it's just that he's been pretty quiet of late. The few times he's popped up recently I don't think he's said much more than "ice cream".
Ice cream is good though...
I'll do a re-read of the thread to pick up on what I've might have missed/forgotten and do a post tomorrow
Welcome back Tellie! I'm so glad you didn't freeze your bits off up in the mountains!
I'm happy to keep going. I'll be here to post whenever appropriate opportunities for Buffy come up. She's kind of stuck awaiting others at the table in the tavern now.
and we're off again
Hmm good youre back Tellie...I figure I really want to join...
Jump right in Minque, we're glad to have you
Awww...I was really stoked for a new RP, then saw the dates.
