So I feel like I need something more since I've gotten into Daggerfall recently. And my with new character (Sheeza Hawty, my dark elf sorceress) I can't just get into the game and start doing stuff, without publicly declaring what she's supposed to be all about. blink.gif So I decided to start a character spread sheet thread, for those who want that extra bit of roleplay geekiness. Or if you just want to share your new ideas. That works too.

And here is the template I'm going to use, most of which I copy / pasted from Lycanthropic Legend's Skyrim thread. Thank you, LL.

GAME: Daggerfall

Name: Mann Buubz

Race: Nord

Gender: Male

Age: 18-ish.

Sign:

Home Country: Skyrim

Faction and Rank or Guilds (if none, tell us what they do for a living): None

Faction Description: Mann probably won't join any factions, he's just a dumb oaf test character.

Class: Custom, but Fighter is closest I guess.

Class Description: He loves swinging BIG weapons, and wearing BIG armor too.

Skills and talents:

Physical Appearance: Blond hair, big muscles, and bigger breastplates than usual (to hide those man b00bs, ha ha).

Eyes:

Build:

Weapons of preference:

Clothing:

Miscellaneous:

Magic abilities or powers: Absolutely none.

Mental Profile/Personality: Dumb oaf, like I said (really dumb).

Biography/Life History: I don't know much about Mann Buubz. He's got a silly name, and is like a big, dumb guy who does big, dumb things. Which is really perfect for the way I've approached Daggerfall so far. I'm just as clueless as he is sometimes!

I'm adding Haryon to this thread, he was my Morrowind Nerevarine whose saves got lost when my disk crashed. I don't recall everything about him, though.

GAME: Morrowind

Name: Haryon (sometimes referred to as Brother Haryon)

Race: Nord

Gender: male

Age: 30-35

Sign: I think it was the Atronach but I'm not sure

Home Country: Cyrodiil

Faction and Rank or Guilds (if none, tell us what they do for a living): he was a Primate of the Imperial Cult and an Operative of the Blades on Vvardenfell

Faction Description:

The Imperial Cult: "The missionary arm of the great faiths, the Imperial Cult brings divine inspiration and consolation to the Empire's remote provinces. The cults combine the worship of the Nine Divines: the Aedra Akatosh, Dibella, Arkay, Zenithar, Mara, Stendarr, Kynareth, and Julianos, and the Talos Cult, veneration of the divine god-hero Tiber Septim, founder and patron of the Empire. Imperial Cult priests provide worship and services for all these gods at the Imperial Cult shrines in settlements throughout Vvardenfell." -- Morrowind Prophecies

The Blades: The Blades are members of an elite Imperial order dedicated to the protection and service of the Dragonborn emperors of Tamriel. Descended from the Akaviri Dragonguard, who became the personal bodyguard of Emperor Reman I, the Blades have since diversified into many areas of Imperial espionage, military, and diplomacy. Indeed, while a select few are appointed by the emperor to serve openly as diplomats or bodyguards, the majority of Blades agents act covertly as couriers and spies. Serving as the emperor's eyes and ears, a vast network of Blades have influenced many critical events across Tamriel, such as reassembling the golem Numidium and defeating Dagoth Ur.

Class: Monk

Class Description: Monks are students of the ancient martial arts of hand-to-hand combat and unarmored self defense. Monks avoid detection by stealth, mobility, and Agility, and are skilled with a variety of ranged and close-combat weapons.

Specialization: Stealth
Attributes: Agility, Willpower

Skills and talents: Major Skills: Hand-to-hand, Unarmored, Athletics, Acrobatics, Sneak

Minor Skills: Block, Marksman, Light Armor, Restoration, Blunt Weapon

Physical Appearance: while a few pics of Haryon should be somwhere on my PC, I can't find them now. If (and that's one big if) I find them, I'll add one here.

Eyes: dark

Build: muscular

Weapons of preference: bare fists, Dreugh Club

Clothing: robes

Mental Profile/Personality: good-natured

Biography/Life History: Haryon was a priest of the Nine Divines living a peaceful life in Cyrodiil. By some odd twist of fate he was branded a prisoner and sent to Vvardenfell. As it later turned out, it was just a trick to get him on the island because he was supposed to be the prophesized Nerevar reborn. Though he at first didn't want anything to do with the prophecy, Haryon later followed in the steps of Nerevar, cast down the False Gods (except Vivec) and saved Vvardenfell. After the prophecy was fulfilled, Haryon was seen as savior by some and as a traitor by others. As such, he moved to Solstheim and intended to permanently stay there. At that time his creator's disk crashed and his adventures on Solstheim were never realized.

GAME: Daggerfall

Name: Sheeza Hawty

Race: dark elf

Gender: hottie

Age: Hmm. 36 in human years. She's supposed to be older, with a bit of wisdom that Mann Buubz doesn't have.

Sign:

Home Country: Morrowind

Faction and Rank or Guilds (if none, tell us what they do for a living):

Faction Description:

Class: Sorcerer

Class Description: Daggerfall is like Oblivion. Both games have preset classes, and the option to make our own In this case, I used the game's pre-made Sorcerer class. Sorcerers are magical, but they cannot generate their own magicka, not even through resting. They must absorb incoming spells during combat to regain this stat.

Skills and talents:: She is going to focus on Mysticism, Alteration, and Thaumaturgy as primary skills, with Destruction, Restoration, and Illusion as majors.

Physical Appearance: Here she is

Eyes: red

Build: slender

Weapons of preference: ebony daggar

Clothing: light armor so far. She just left the opening dungeon.

Miscellaneous: I plan on having Sheeza Hawty join one of the guilds, but I'm not sure which one yet.

Magic abilities or powers:

Mental Profile/Personality:

Biography/Life History: Sheeza came to Iliac Bay by ship from Morrowind. I get the sense that she has no family here, and no friends, and that she could be here for some sort of training / schooling.

Class: Lack of would be more the case.

Class Description: Big weapons, 'nuff said.

Skills and talents: Long Sword, Axe, Archery, ...

Eyes: Yellow

Build: Like a brick outhouse.

Weapons of preference: Chrysamere, or a Daedric longsword

Clothing: Orcish armour, but not so much that it hides her assets.

Games: Daggerfall, Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim

Name: Silanu (Hlaalu)

Race: Dunmer

Gender: Female

Age: Various - a Dunmer should be able to live through all four games, especially one with a magical inclination.

Sign: Mage

Home Country: Morrowind

Faction and Rank or Guilds: Fighters Guild, Mages Guild, Dibella, and others

Class: Varies by game, mostly custom - Dominatrix

Class Description: Destruction magic, with a one-handed/long blade skill, too. Unarmoured where that skill exists. Has both Heavy and Light as majors in Oblivion as unused ones for level limiting.

Skills and talents: Long Sword, Destruction are combined to use a Riding Crop enchanted with shock (where the game allows) and used separately where it doesn't. If the game allows, she also carries a no-damage variety just for having fun.

Physical Appearance: Silanu has the largest breasts in Tamriel, due to magical help before natural growth that would have been exceptional anyway. At least they have included feather, so they're not heavy. Medium blue/grey skin, with white hair, styled according to game, but showing her ears. She has had a mod-added body in each of the games, including the 2D one for Daggerfall.

Eyes: Dunmer red.

Build: Top-heavy, but not too unbalanced. She's chunky enough for the big ones not to look too ridiculous.

Weapons of preference: Enchanted Riding Crop or Long Sword - generally one-handed. Daedric in Daggerfall, hoping for custom in Morrowind, too.

Clothing: Unarmoured - with tall black boots in all but Morrowind, where all boots are armour, until I mod that. Various other scraps of leather depending on game.

Miscellaneous: She's an NPC in the Gweden Brothel mod, and sister to Falanu Hlaalu at the All Things Alchemical shop in Skingrad. Her cousin Miranu is also in that mod.

Magic abilities or powers: Nothing unusual, except for the preferred method of delivery. Fire spells are her backup for anything shock-resistant.

Mental Profile/Personality: Dominatrix - but that's more a professional persona than her real one.

Biography/Life History: Her elder sister Falanu was getting all the boys, because she'd developed sooner. So Silanu cheated, with the help of a mage she'd blackmailed, and got a pair of her own. Then her natural growth kicked in, and doubled everything, at least. She learned to say "no" forcefully, (well, she was younger than she looked, and had to) and discovered that some guys like being told what to do. The rest is history, which can be read here.

Games: Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim

Name: Diablita

Race: Unknown. Certainly not any of the usual ones. She does have elf-like ears.

Gender: Female

Age: Varies by game: She was about 19 in TES IV

Sign: ???

Home Country: Nominally Valenwood - born on a volcanic island well out to sea. First landed at the Imperial City, and hid with her sister in Clark's basement, where he found them.

Faction and Rank or Guilds: Various - was the Dragonborn in Clark's tale of Skyrim.

Class: Custom wicked

Class Description: Since she uses a pitchfork as her primary weapon, that guides the skills that go with it. Morrowind lets her use Unarmoured and Spear, the later games don't. In Oblivion her fork was a mage's staff shooting fireballs. In Skyrim she used Alteration spells to let her run around wearing just chains, and threw the fireballs by hand using her Destruction.

Skills and talents: As a companion, she's balanced to the player, and complements her sister's skills, so they can do a bit of everything between them. She tends to the Destruction, Two-handed side, and Angeline will do Archery, Restoration, One-Handed.

Physical Appearance: Red skin, cloven hooves, and a spear-pointed tail. In Skyrim, she learned to sprout wings, which weren't enough to fly, but could let her fall safely.

Eyes: Yellow

Build: A little shorter in height than a Breton, but her horns add a bit. Generous handfull.

Weapons of preference: Pitchfork, which may be a spear, mage's staff, or whatever according to the game's capabilities. Knows other spells, and can handle two-handers well enough.

Clothing: None, unless you count piercings and chains. She may don bracers or similar when appropriate (e.g. for archery).

Miscellaneous: Sister of Angeline, and paired with her in companion mods when not be played as the PC.

Magic abilities or powers: When her pitchfork isn't being used to cast fireballs for her, she usually does those by hand. In Skyrim, where unarmoured characters need to use Alteration spells for defence, she does so.

Mental Profile/Personality: Sweet but wicked. Beware of practical jokes.

Biography/Life History: Created with her sister for a TES IV mod that was never published. It had quests, and dialogue between the sisters as well as the usual companion stuff. Most of that went into Clark's tale, and since she was the elven one of the pair, she turned up in his Skyrim adventures, too, as the Dragonborn. Also being played (and made into a companion mod) in Morrowind, but it's possible that it's really her mother Diabla there.

GAME: Daggerfall

Name: Decrepit (As with all my characters who go by Decrepit, it's not his birth-name.)

Race: Nord

Gender: Male

Age: oldish, but not as old as my TES4:Oblivion Decrepit. More middle-aged, I'd say.

Home Country: Skyrim so far as I know.

Faction and Rank or Guilds Fighters Guild, highest rank; Temple of Kynareth, highest rank; Mages Guild, unsure by not far from highest rank; Knights of the Dragon, unsure but either highest rank or one down. He of course works for the Emperor.

Class: Custom, a combo of warrior, some sleath-type skills, and piss poor magic.

Skills and talents: melee specialty is blunt, though these days he wields sword & board almost exclusively, due to the best Daedric blades holding stronger enchantments than their blunt counterparts. Has become good at enchanting gear, which largely compensates for his lack of raw magicka.

Physical Appearance: He looks like a Nord.

Eyes: Two

Weapons of preference: As mentioned above, he is a blunt specialist. Huge two-handed warhammer was his weapon of choice for quite some time. These days his sports a katana and kite shield, both decently enchanted. He is a middling archer, but tends to use his bow only in rare specialized situations.

Clothing: Daedric Plate (red), several pieces with decent self-enchantments.

Magic abilities or powers: Weak in magicka. Unaided he can't cast more than the most basic of spells. That didn't stop him for advancing in the Mages Guild to the point where he can enchant items. This allows him to enchant pieces that boost his magicka pool sufficiently high to cast a good many worthwhile spells. Enchantments also insure that his weapons and magic items remain in tip-top condition. They allow him to survive several situations that he would otherwise struggle with.

Mental Profile/Personality: Fairly similar to my Cyrodiilic Decrepit avatar in that he is dedicated to his main missions as assigned by the Emperor, as well as perform tasks for the various organizations of which he is a member.

Biography/Life History: Unlike my Cyrodiilic avatar I know practically nothing about this Decrepit's life before I met up with him.[/quote]

GAME: TES III: Morrowind

Name: Yor Azzizmyyn

Race: Dunmer (Dark Elf)

Gender: Man

Age: Hmm. 35-ish?

Sign: Apprentice

Home Country: Cyrodiil (yeah I know, real creative...)

Faction and Rank or Guilds (if none, tell us what they do for a living): don't know yet.

Faction Description:

Class: Knight (this is after choosing to answer questions in Sedya Neen).

Class Description:

Skills and talents: Majors = Long Blade, Axe, Speechcraft, Heavy Armor, Block
.................................. Minors = Restoration, Mercantile, Med. Armor, Enchant, Armorer

Physical Appearance: Okay, sure.

Eyes:

Build:

Weapons of preference:

Clothing:

Miscellaneous: Yor Azzizmyyn is my very first Morrowind character! hehe.gif I started his game on Xbox, even though I have the PC version of the game already, I wanted to see the console version first. So far, I love it.

Magic abilities or powers: Yor is not very good with magic, due to his Class. This is okay. I usually roll melee fighters first, though I do hope he does learn some magic.

Mental Profile/Personality:


Biography/Life History: I don't know much about the guy. I'm going with the "prisoner from Cyrodiil" bit the game offers up, and the rest is a blank slate, so far.
