Buildin' up a Skyrim RP.
Hello there! As you may or may not have noticed...I am Whispers. I don't really have much to say, as I find talking about random shit really hard to do, so I'll just get on with the point. Now, I am very addicted to Skyrim.
The open world, the dungeons, the enemies, the free-reign, the....EVERYTHING. Some people hate it, some people, like me, loves it. The thing is: Most of the Skyrim RPs here are usually in the middle of the story-line, or something of that effect. So, I propose a small, generic, and blank idea: A Skyrim RP where we are prisoners.
Basically. Ya' know, the cart where you start off in when you began playing Skyrim. Yes, we are all in that cart. I plan on it being sort of free-roam after we escape Helgen. No idea on how to do that, either. We can go through the main storyline if you guys wish, but yet again, I do not know how to implement Ulfric Stormcloak into the RP. I plan on this to be a relatively small group of people, maybe 5 or 6, so Ulfric won't be able to fit his fatass on the prisoner cart with all 5 of us. How do we began the 'Stormcloak' rebellion, then?
Maybe Ulfric wasn't taken prisoner, and he's still out there somewhere, planning. We're all just a bunch of prisoners, down on our luck. We escape. There won't be a Dragonborn or an Alduin, so no worries about that. Somehow we'll need to escape without the help of a damned dragon. Then, after that, we can come up with our own story-line and plot idea. Maybe we can go to Whiterun and have some Ale? Maybe we could go become a team of bounty hunters? Bar brawls?! DRAGON SLAYING?!?! PROSTITUTIO-
I don't know. We'll figure this out when it all happens 'cause I'm confusing my self.
Anyways, basic plot-point: We're prisoners on the way to our execution. What do we do now? Escape. But how? If we do escape...what then? It's up to us to decide. Give me suggestions and all that jazz. I'll need a few co-GM's if this takes off (('Cuz I'm a busy highschooler. Military studying, Marksmanship classes, Drill Team...fuck my life)).
Leave me suggestions on where to put this. Free? Casual? High Casual? I know a lot of you know more about Skyrim then me, so don't be afraid to post hateful/critical comments, suggestions, and things of that nature. I'm a tough teenager.
This is perfect!!! I love skyrim also(150+hours) but I have never RPed it. Anywho, I would love to join this!
But who would be the Dragonborn? if you want to do this just ignore the main story with Alduin and the like and focus on the Civil War, what the actual game should have done tbh but that's a topic for another day.
I saw we skip the Dragonborn idea in its entirety. Example being how the previous heroes of the Elder Scrolls series disappear into obscurity.
I actually believe that Whisper intended to leave out Alduin and the Dragonborn, though dragons would still be returning to Nirn for some obscure reason. Whether that is right or not is up to Whisper, though I'm sure that that is what was planned.
I like this concept, I'll be watching this
I also like the idea of this, I'll subscribe to the thread...
Yes, like Pyro stated, I was going to be leaving out the Dragonborn entirely, though the idea of dragons attacks fascinate me. I may leave them out. Anyways, it seems that we have enough people. I'll be putting on the cap. I just need to make the OOC and character sheet, finalize some ideas, and other boring things like that.
You guys could stir up some character ideas, yes? I was planning on a Dunmer who was convicted for murder of two Imperial Guards. They...were racist, so it was the right thing to do (Not)! He was also charged with a few failed robberies, and for a few successful ones as well.
Huh. Any suggestions for a title? I was thinking of Skyrim: The Beginning, but that sounds waaay too generic.
Also, this is what I came up with when I thought of a character sheet. Of course, delete the things in parenthesis.
Name: ((First, Middle, and Last.))
Age: ((As different races have different age-limits and stuff, just use common sense.))
Appearance: ((Picture with a Description, or just a Description if you can't find a pic.))
Race: ((Nord, Orc, Redguard, Wood Elf, Dunmer, Imperial? What are they?))
Personality: ((How does your character react to situations? What's their likes and dislikes? Tell me about your character.))
Biography/History: ((What was their life like before they was imprisoned? What is their general history?))
Skills/Specializations: ((What is your character good with? Nothing like 'Master Destruction' or 'Master Illusion'. Is your character particularly skilled in beating someone's face in with their punches? Did your character study at the College of Winterhold for a time, and is a bit skilled in Destruction Magic? Things like that.))
Other: ((Anything you want to tell me about, or anything extra.))
There was no 'weapons/armor' tab added because I don't want to burden you guys with having to edit your character sheet whenever your character finds a weapon/armor piece. So, it'll mostly be free-form whenever that happens. As I've said before, I live off of suggestions. :P
Age cap should be higher, most Dunmer and Altmer live MUCH longer than that.
