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 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.
Tellie
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.

Liz is gone?
Callidus Thorn
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?
Darkness Eternal
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.

Acadian
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.

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

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

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???

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.

Hmm, I think I've already decided on how to make her. Yep, it's going to be a girl, a little girl, and she's kinda going to be a Sweet Polly Oliver type of character that joins the party to sate her wish for an adventurous life. All I need now is some background history, an appearance and I'm allllllll seetttt.

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! goodjob.gif

Awww, but you can still use him! Let's be useless baggage together! And I'm gonna spice my character up a few more. I think... I'm going to make her a result of one of Athyn's many dalliances. That's right, Tellie. With your permission I think I'm going to make my character a bastard from your character's loins hahahaha (they both don't know it though, to make it more dramatic)

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!

Eh, the idea was alright, but the execution was terrible. I was too tired, and it was too rushed, that was the problem.
Tellie
Naturally any NPC (unless stated otherwise like Njaal) can be 'intereacted' with and 'controlled by all of us.
Callidus Thorn
Right, that's better. Post re-written.
Uleni Athram
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.
Callidus Thorn
So which character is she going to be latching onto?
Tellie
The incident with running away from a beating...did it involve a sweetroll tongue.gif
Uleni Athram
@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. tongue.gif

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.
Acadian
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. smile.gif
Tellie

I meant initially, but it seems you've answered that question for me.

And if she can't speak then she can't become a mage tongue.gif

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 laugh.gif

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? blink.gif
Uleni Athram
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.

Haha Uleni. I remember that roleplay. It was hilarious.

Monk-Boy is the name Uleni has for my character Draken. At the time of the old RP he was a very old vampire masquerading as a young Nine-Divines loving monk at the Weynon Priory.

And no, it's no problem. Many of my characters are arrogant(to the point of their own undoing), manipulative, murderous, self-serving, etc. I have a soft spot for darker complicated characters. Now Kraven here is just a young man. I didn't want to introduce him the way I did with the older versions of him; big, strong, scarred bearded battle-hardened brute. I figured I need to shine a bit of light.

And Acadian..... That's not the first time I've heard desires to braid Kraven's hair voiced.

I figured it would be in the next post. And that's the sort of thing Edril was talking about when he mentioned "servants' tricks".

And why do I suddenly have the feeling that I'm just helping you set things up... blink.gif
