Well, now that we have this shiny new Free Writing Forum, thought I'd see what people woud think of starting up a thread for roleplay!

Being that we're in TR, I figure we'd be based in Morrowind, but that'd flexible. I have some ideas as far as plotlines or locations to play in, but thought I'd get a general idea of who would be interested to try this first and what all you'd like to try.

So post away!

I made an account just to respond to this!

I just very recently got back into Morrowind (in large part due to Tamriel Rebuilt itself) and I've been dying for some place or community to write or roleplay with. As you said, I'd assume the RP would be based in Morrowind but no doubt stories could head in different directions. I'm open to trying anything since, though I've roleplayed for years now, I've never done anything Elder Scrolls related. I'd love to hear your ideas for plotlines or locations!

Now I've got to properly sit down and work out a character...

That's one! (Or two, counting me?)

I think in the interest of rousing up some ideas and interest, we'd be based in the unfinished lands. Which...doesn't narrow it down by a whole lot, beyond probably not Telvanni. I have interest in Dres and something to do with the slavery (perhaps freedom fighting, but perhaps coming to understand it through the Dres' eyes as well), or Redoran and the mainlands' lack of soldiers, or fights with either the Orcs or the Nords.

If you have ideas of your own or something you wish to explore though, please do let me know!

IM IN FOR ELDER SCROLLS RP

Throughout my years of poring over ES lore I've never actually tried my hand at writing it. Here's hoping we can get something interesting going. I can dig the freedom fighting angle.

Character Name:
Race:
Profession: ((what do they do for a living? If adventurer, what skillset do they have?))
Personality:
Background: ((where they came from, if they have family, defining life events, etc))
Anything else you want to add!

Character Name: Teeth-like-Deep-Roots

Race: Argonian (Saxhleel)

Appearance: A small and lithe Saxhleel, Green with white and black markings with waxy black spines. Yellow-eyes that seemed be dull and shineless. wearing a dark red iron-weaved robed and a dozen bracelets of varying woods and metals, some magic in nature, others less so. Carrying several visible vials and bottles on his belt and on his robes.

Profession: Hedge-Wizard/Alchemist

Personality: Suspicious of other Races but curious of their Customs. Even-Tempered and Calculated, Sardonic and Jovial, but with a whiplash fierceness. Downright vicious in haggling. His back to the wall, he is observant and almost detached.  Refuses to take part in politics and its discussion, prefers to approach things on a personal level

Background: Born in Blackrose, in southern Black Marsh to the  Kota-Vimleel tribe (Black-Tongues) under the Mage Sign to a Shadowscale Mother. A natural talent in the arcane and medicines led to a fruitful as an Alchemist, sponsored by the An-Xileel for poison research though not directly involved in politics. Quietly reveres Sithis and is dismissive of Aedra. Came to Morrowind to practice alchemy and sell his wares in peace.

(and of course some room to progress as we write)

Character Name: Beaudoin Maracour

Race: Breton

Appearance: Young guy, early 20's, looking like Bretons do; black hair,semi-pointy ears, light skin complexion. Wearing purple and black knickerbockers and a purple/gold coat, with under it a white shirt with frills, and maybe a musketeer hat with a plume to top it all off? cheeky

Profession: Fine clothes merchant, part of the royal house of Camlorn(although he is not very high in the ranks).

Personality: Pompous, short attention span and always out for a haggle, has spend almost all of his time in High Rock and is mostly accustomed to Nords, Bretons, Redguards, Imperials, Orcs, and High Elves to a lesser degree. Often he keeps his chin up and his true intent hidden, trying to sway the conversation one way or the other. Boasts often about his skills when challenged.

Background: Raised in and around Camlorn, High Rock. Adopted into the royal House of Camlorn and raised to be a squire, because of his relative ineptness in combat skills he was later brought to merchants where he learn to haggle, persuade and dress like one. He now seeks new oppertunities where he can find them. Laptop battery is dying...

Character Name: Verminah Nasraya

Race: Dunmer

Appearance: Verminah bears the distinctive deep blue-grey skin and burning red eyes of the Dunmer people. Very youthful in her features, about early twenties. As a necessity of her occupation her obsidian black hair is kept short, very rarely ever reaching past her neck. Physically Verminah is underfed and it shows in her sharp features and overall thin physique. However the lack of obvious bursting muscles belies an athlete's stamina, and underneath her armor and colorful cloths the woman has a firm body with little fat and honed muscles.

Attire: Verminah is uncomfortable with a sedentary life and so is most often seen in her hand-made Chitin armor and on the move. The flexible and light yet deceptively strong layers of insect shells make for the perfect balance of mobility and protection. When at home or on rare occasion left with free time Verminah will don cheap, flavorless commoner's clothing, though while wearing it she can't shake a constant expression of mild distress.

Profession: Scout and Slaver

Personality: Rigid and focused, sometimes to the point of having tunnel vision. She admires direct approaches and people with clear goals. Verminah has a mind for quick actions and short conversations. Short tempered and very prideful. When it comes to proven allies she is incomparably loyal. Suffers from a sense of humor drier and blacker than the Ashlands.

Background: An Ashlander from northern Vvardenfell and now outcast of their tribe. Verminah moved swiftly as her birth sign, The Steed, and fled from Vvardenfell in shame after being cast out. Doing pitiful adventurer's duties put her taught and trained skills as a Scout for her tribe to use and earned her enough coin for a journey far South. Upon reaching Tear, the Jewel of the East, Verminah saw opportunity to truly apply her talents in House Dres and their constant need for slaves. Now a slaver and Oathman of the Great House of Tear, Verminah suppresses her shame with a mounting pride after each batch of Argonians she contributes to bringing back.

Name: Seryn Tolvas

Race: Dunmer

Appearance: Of average height, average build. Wears a light chitin over light robes. Pouches and satchels line his belt with things like potions and such. Accessories of dwemer origin; dwemer rings and such. Face is slightly more angular than most dunmer.

Profession: Archeologist. A strong passion for ancient cultures and the like. Dwemer stuff makes him happy :) He is more of a rogueish character.

Personality: A calm and collected fellow; he usually avoids combat of any sort if possible. He is driven by his studies, but if life had a purpose, it would be music. He loves to listen to any sort of music; he is intrigued by the music of different cultures. He is not the most empathetic, and would not always understand others' emotions, although he has a firm understanding of the way people think. He does not act based on his feelings; he is a very pragmatic and practical person.

Background: He was born in Cyrodiil. His mother was from Narsis and his father was Colovian and half Altmer. His mother had gone missing when he was young but learned to not be bothered by that kind of thing from his father who also taught him about historical and cultural studies. He became an Imperial archeologist like his father. No strong political opinions, but tends to go Imperial if ha can.

An Argonian and a slaver in the same group--that shall be interesting!

Here's mine, for when I'm not playing NPCs. While he has a quest hook to get things started, he shouldn't be considered the leader of the crew. That I'm leaving to you guys. ;)

Name: Azzir Shuribaad
Profession: Ordinator
Race: Dunmer
Personality: Gruff and dour, like many Ordinators and many Dunmer. This is partly a mask he's learned to don while on duty, and while not on duty, he is lazy and cares primarily to please himself. He's caught somewhere between trying to find redemption for his "sins" and casting off the suffocating mantle of the Ordination all together.
Background: Azzir has been posted in Mournhold for many years, aspiring to become a High Ordinator. He's always had an unfortunate love of drink and skooma however, that has held him back from promotion and given him a poor reputation to his commanders. It was only a matter of time before something happened to dishonor himself in the eyes of the Ordination, and while he never speaks of what happened, one can only guess he's now seeking his redemption through a secret mission for the Tribunal.

I'm going to start another thread to begin. Based on our group, I'll be making our opening setting DRES HORAK, a Dres clanstead on Lake Andaram. I'll be describing what we know of the city more in the opening post--be considering how your character got there!

I'm assuming it isn't too late to join?

Name: Claudius Invictus (Imperial)
Profession: Merchant
Background: Born in the Imperial City as the only son of a fabulously wealthy merchant, and through those connections has connections to the Hlaalu, though he does not take such things very seriously.  Even though he has an aptitude for trading and commerce, instiled in him from years of tutoring and exposure, he prefers to just live off his family's natural wealth.  His father finally got frustrated that Claudius was wasting his potential so he sent him to the East to take part in the family's trading with the Hlaalu.  Claudius sees the mission as a chance to explore Morrowind and have an altogether good time.

Skills: Good at barter, and adept at fencing, though by no means a master of fighting.  Excellent at throwing money at a problem until it ceases to be a problem.  

Personality: Carefree because he is always confident in his ability to talk or pay his way out of any trouble.  A playboy who enjoys partying, drinking, smoking, and snorting in equal measure. Worships the Nine loosely, but doesn't let their teachings get in the way of a good high. 

Appearance: A moderately attractive, but also rather normal looking imperial.  Brown hair with green eyes, normal height. Relatively fit but also not exceptiaonlly athletic.

If it's alright with others for the current RP going on over there I'm gonna switch to third person from here on out for readability's sake (and also because I'm more comfortable writing in that style). As Kevaar said, reading a string of first person posts disoriented me as well and I went with the trend but I'm gonna switch from here on out!

I suppose I'll start doing that too. I'm more comfortable writing in the third person as well.

I guess I can write in 3rd person as well. But I think it was better to introduce the character in 1st person. cheeky

Quick question as to what you guys would prefer--shall I wait for all of you to post a response before making a DM post, or allow tangents with just a few party members?

Character Name: Relyn Maloren
Race: Dunmer
Profession: Ordinator
Personality: Very stern and a stickler for rules and regulations. Will not put up with any crap from other ordinators and never hesitate to turn in any who break the rules. He enforces them with equally among the ranks and without any bias even towards his own friends.
Background: Born an ashlander from the Urshilaku tribe, Relyn was able to convince the ordinators to take him in shortly after leaving the tribe. He secretly follows the Nerevarine Cult but is a master at concealing this fact. His reputation is well known among the ranks and is bound to become a High Ordinator someday as his skills are reaching the required levels for promotion. In truth, some of the ordinators at his post are getting annoyed at his insistance on enforcing the rules down to the letter and are planning on promoting him out of their hair.
