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 biggrin.gif )

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.

-Tellie out.

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 Ive written a rather fair amount of fanfic, Im quite the novice at RP. Ive 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 biggrin.gif
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 laugh.gif But, Morrowind's on the list, so I'm happy biggrin.gif

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 tongue.gif

If we go to Morrowind, well, things might be more adventurous there . . . in that ugly, ashy, Dark-elf filled land.

Id be fine with anything TES, Im sure. That said, I do have a few thoughts

I join DE in urging that we consider a small scale / limited mission RP. Given chorrols history with RPs 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.

Don't worry, it was a tease. I do have Telvanni characters in my stories, and I find them interesting.

Y'know, I'm gonna have to throw together a Telvanni character. Either a Sorcerer or a Nightblade, haven't decided yet.

[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!

You're more than welcome Uleni, it seemed the proper thing to do when I slunk back in guiltily after a two year hiatus to try and do something productive...

There are OTHER forums where the main focus is getting...'cuddling' from other characters???

Well I'm off...

*disappears*
XD

Seriously, I too have missed doing proper RP ('in-game' RP on ESO or SWTOR just doesn't cut it)
Now we just need to entice more people (or poach them from other forums)

Dude. Be cautious.
The way they do it is atrocious.
So icky and so yucky that it gives me a sense of malodorous depression-us.

Ugh.

In character discussion though, I'm thinking of creating a very, very useless (combat-wise) character that'll probably serve as baggage to the party. You know, who always gets in the way and depends upon the superior skill of the others. More interaction-focused than a concentration on uber, godlike skills on the battlefield lol
