"And in the child's forehead was the Chim-el Adabal, alive with the dragon-fires of yore and divine promise,
and none dared obstruct Sed-Yenna when she climbed the steps of White-Gold Tower to place the babe Reman on his Throne,
where he spoke as an adult, saying:
I AM CYRODIIL COME."
It is the year 1E 2703. An ambitious warlord by name of Reman is attempting to unite all of Cyrodiil under one banner once more in the face of an impending Akaviri invasion by the Tsaesci snake-race... but the petty kings of Colovia and the Nibenay Valley are content with their own rule and oppose this young upstart and his plans. Their arrogance threatens to become Cyrodiil's undoing.
And that's where we come in. A pretty simple premise based on the by now near-mythical early years of Reman Cyrodiil, the Worldly God. My attempt to give this fantastic period in Tamrielic history solid shape and tap the potential it has for great storytelling. This is a time in which Cyrodiil was still a jungle before Tiber Septim changed it with his Voice. A time in which the Cyrodiilic people were more like Romans than the medieval people we saw in Oblivion. This RP will be about humanity's second rise against its enemies, the ruins of the Alessian Empire scrambling back up to their feet with Reman as their leader.
You will be playing the lieutenants of Reman, some of his closest confidants and specialists of great skill. Remarkable people that were instrumental in his victory over the Tsaesci but whose names were lost to history. While it's possible for one or two people to play a different race, the lion's share of you will be Imperials. Be creative about how you got where you are or learned your particular skills, since this takes place in a time before the Fighters, Thieves or Mages Guild existed, nor was there a Dark Brotherhood. The lack of detailed lore about this period means you get a lot of creative liberty here. Make good use of it.
