The Elder Scrolls have foretold of this...
The year is 4E 206, five years have past since the end of Alduin the world eater. His end was brought about by the last Dovahkiin or Dragonborn in the common language, sadly though at a great cost to himself, the defeat of Alduin cost the Dragonborn his life.
But now the world is advancing, what the Dragonborn has done to shape this world will always be remembered...
Hostilities continue to rise between the Empire and the Aldmeri after a law was passed in the Empire allowing Talos to be revered as a hero not a god this appeased some of the public of the Empire. The worship of Talos as a god has become more common but Thalmor agents have been met with higher violence than before. Talks of voyages to Akavar has been talked about in both the Empire and Aldmeri, but it is low likely due to costs and risks.But trouble brews across Tamriel as Deadra have been more common across the land and the undead have come in greater numbers and strength. Most people dismiss this as coincidence, but some think it is something far more vile. Priests have said to be having visions of indescribably proportion of destruction and death. They assume this is as a the gods are angry and need more praise but some think it is something else.
In Cyrodiil the empire struggles economically, quite surprising to the current going on in the world Cyrodiil seems to be spared from these events. Whether this is from the work of the new Emperor or by some mystic blessing the populace of Cyrodiil is relieved to be seeing a to the almost never ending action in Cyrodiil.
The dragons still remain in Skyrim and in other mountain regions plaguing the people that live there. The war in Skyrim has ended with the defeat of the stormcloaks and Jarl Ulfric’s death, though there are small groups of Stormcloak rebels that remain they are all but defeated. Titus Mede II has been assassinated, his heir, Attrebus Mede assumes his role as Emperor.
The Argonians and Dunmer or dark elves have minor battles along their border. Red mountain's eruptions have calmed allowing a little more land to be freely traveled, but fear of what lies there has stopped recolonization. Perhaps in result of this strange ashen creatures have been seen walking through the ash fields and Dunmer cities have been attacked by these creatures. The Empire and The Aldmeri Dominion still continue to have economic struggles despite the Thalmor denying their struggle but the people that travel across Tamriel have seen it with there own eyes.
Plague has returned to the Khajiit home lands of Elsweyr and the people struggle against it but once more the High Elves work to fix it but have been met with little results. This has cause issues with public happiness as the people have become unhappy at the current state of living and the plague has only made matters worse.
The Bosmer homeland of Valenwood has seen a darkness as monstrous creatures have become more common there. There have been talk among the Bosmer people of “the Ritual” being performed soon. What this mean people cannot say but it is ominous to those not of Bosmer blood.
In Hammerfell a friendship is being remade by the Empire and Hammerfell brought forth by this Hammerfell has been dropped into a civil war. The people are split between serving the Empire or the Aldmeri Dominion.
In Blackmarsh the Argonian people remain under their own control. Life continues mostly per the norm almost unaware of the world around the thick marsh. In Blackmarsh the high security Imperial prison has fallen into a state of disrepair. Its Imperial guards have abandoned the prison letting the worst criminals known to the empire escape. Those that did not die out right from the poison are struggling to survive the marsh. To make matters even stranger, the ancient and mysterious Hist, as the Argonians claim, have fallen silent in recent months. What this means to the Argonian people no one can say.
The Bretons of Highrock have been dealing with a major Vampire issue, as they have become more active the Vampires have been attacking the trade routes and now High Rocks economy is beginning to suffer from their actions.
The High Elves of The Summerset Isle have been recovering from the great war with the Empire, and along the southern shore of the Summerset Isles ports and trade ships have been raided by Maormer warships. This has worried the Aldmeri government for a return of the Maormer could mean major issues for the Aldmeri empire the last time the Maormer invaded it took a combined effort of the Imperial navy, the High Elf royal navy and the magic of the Psijic order to turn back the armada.
The Orc's having always had troubles holding the homeland of Orsinium are constantly sacked and raided from the Redguards to the south and the Bretons to the north but have sent out a call for the protection of their city. It has been answered as droves of Orcs flock to the city defending it from invaders, as of a result many regions now have a absence of Orcs.
People speak of the coming war, it will come, there is no doubt about that. Thalmor work to dispute the Empire but the Empire does the same. Only time can tell what the future holds.
Rules and regulations
-the highest armor you can start your character off with is Steel and Elven, but if you pick these your character is poor in the beginning.
-One man cannot take on a whole fort of bandits we are only human, there are enemy's that we can fight even when they are in groups. But there are enemys out there that are difficult for us to fight, and a fort owned by bandits has at least three of these.
-You may have as many characters as you can handle, the main antagonist(s) shall be controlled by me, im sorry if someone doesn't like that, i dont know what to tell you)
-I highly recommend that your character has some sort of flaw or internal strife, it should be something in his/her personality that makes it more interesting, but what it is is completely up to you.
-when this begins it shall be open to all but as we get more members it shall require permission from the current players for someone to join.
-Skills, each character has 1 skill which they are best at then they have 2 major skills then 3 skills you are decent with all skills can be leveled up by using them, the more you use them the better you get, but be resonable you cant just make one iron sword and then be a master at smithing.
-Skills include all the skills from Skyrim aside from block and armor skills. Block has been mixed with one handed.
-It is a mixture of spells from Skyrim and Oblivion, but you are allowed to add your own spin to it, but no spirit bombs which can destroy cities. Learning spells is you read a tome but you do not immediateness learn the spell, it takes time to learn new spells, the amount of time is up to the player, but be resonable about the time, also remember the length of time is equivalent to the power of the spell.
-I request that people stick to Lore and not diverge off it....more then we already are, this mostly stands for past events (i know almost everything there is to know about the Lore so message me or just ask me anything about it)
-character backgrounds are completely open just no you are the son of the emperor stuff, I will ask that you message me about your background if you plan to do something different
Examples of character background: Adventurer, son of a noble, poor family, part of the thrives guild. If you plan to do something major I request you message me about it. You don't have to tell me your characters back story just his background
-all races of the elder scrolls are allowed except dwemer/dwarves or snow elfs they are extinct. But aside from the all races are usable.
-this is meant to be a casual to low advanced role play meta speech is allowed but must be in parenthesis and please try to keep it in your story posts.
-all elder scrolls ore is available (listed below in level of rarity) you can make your own armor and upgrade it.
Ore- Construction resources:
Stalhrim(highly rare only found in solsthiem)
-eating, I'm not going to kill you off if you aren't eating but i do request that you have your character eat and drink something every once in a while
-equipment, all equipment from elder scrolls is in this, please keep this realistic, you can only carry so much, we can't have our full steel plate with a sword a shield a great sword a bow and arrows a few staffs a whole alchemy stores worth of potions and the entire imperial library in you backpack. You can carry as much as a reasonable person can carry, I'm not going to go into weight but just know a Nord warrior can carry more then a dark elf Mage. Though your race has no affect your class will its no doubt that a warrior is stronger with there fists then a Mage or rogue but remember they all are more silent and faster the, The warrior. But the largest affect is your body build.
-in game relationships are allowed, this is story driven, also yes your characters are allowed to do......inappropriate activities, because these things can add to story, but please do not talk about it just hint at the fact of what they do. Do what they do in PG-13 movies, this is a fantasy role play not a porno haha.
