Earlier today I was thinking to myself that I wanted to get back into some Elder Scrolls writing along with Teir, but I didn't know what to do. Then for some reason I started thinking about the two families in the Imperial City. The Sintav and Atius families are apparently quarreling with one another, yet there are no quests for them. I thought this odd, since the background of the story was there somewhat. So.....I have decided to write a play about them, using the storyline of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet as a track to run on. I don't know how succesful I will be since I've never attempted writing in the form of a play before, but I am going to have with this.
Below is a character list that I have come up with. Note that ALL characters in the play are characters in-game as well, EXCEPT for Rosela. I made her up, but since she doesn't appear in the play it won't be that bad. Another note, I had to tweak some things, and I know some things might not make sense, but just bare with me. I'm sort of limited since I wanted all of the characters to be living in the Imperial City. The only characters NOT living in the Imperial City are Brother Piner (Friar Lawrence in RaJ) and Eronor (Friar John in RaJ), who both live in Weynon Priory.
Along with the list, I'm also telling you which character they are in Romeo and Juliet, and their descriptions and a glimpse of what you can expect in my play. I'm going to try and stay with the RaJ storyline to the best of my ability.
