    Hey there friends and foes, it's Hale. Yes, that flake who almost started up an RP last year and let life and such distract him from doing so, and possibly letting some of his friends down here in the process! Well, I'm a flake no more, and back and ready to get down with a killer adventure with some fine and unfine folk such as yourselves. Life happens, and that's the point of my new style of RP - I've developed one that can entertain us, stay stress-free if someone can't post for days or weeks at a time, and also help me with my own novel in the works.

    I hear you thinking, "But Hale, you eloquent, nirnroot smoking sod, I just want to hear the damn idea!" So on that note, let's get into it!

    Setting, Plot, and the Overall Situation

    The year is 330 F.E. The World Eater has long been defeated. The Dragonborn has long passed into history, then legend, and finally myth. The Dominion and the Empire waged another war forty-some years after the Dragon Crisis, which eventually erupted into a world war, with the allied nations of each side beating the living hell out of each other until both nations retreated to their respective lands, with the High Elves all but becoming recluses in their own realm, going fully dark to the rest of Tamriel. But the world still turns, life goes on, and new threats always rise in the place of the old.

    In this case, the new threat has taken the form of an elder vampire lord and lady, a matchmade in perdition itself. Older, stronger, and far more clever than even Harkon, Lord Daray and Lady Elisabeta hewed a red swath through northeastern Highrock when they awoke from their deep sleep of uncountable centuries. Pushing their army of vampire knights, undead minions, and human collaborators into Skyrim, and eventually down into Cyrodiil and even into certain points in Morrowind and Valenwood (whilst mysteriously avoiding both Black Marsh and Hammerfell), the worldscape of much of Tamriel was seemingly changed forever. Now styling themselves the Shadow Emperor and Empress, the pair of vampire ancients and their hordes every since held sway over all of these nations, save the untouched lands of Black Marsh and Hammerfell..........

    And a self-styled Free Nation comprising of Whiterun, Windhelm, and surprisingly the Kingdom of Northpoint, where the local lords (with the help of a mysterious stranger named Hale Loneshadow and his fellow Company of Adventurers, from lands both local and far beyond) and their determined forces pushed the appointed vampire Count out, with his decapitated head on a silver pike cemented into the ground outside of the kingdom's new grand wall, defended with runes, spells, and good old manpower. It has been a stalemate for some years now, as the Shadow Empire has been more determined than ever to secure the seemingly more prevalent holdouts in Skyrim, as well as making concerted attempts to fully invade and conquer Morrowind and Valenwood.

    Sensing an opportunity, Hale Loneshadow take advantage of the autumn lull, and posts notices with every inn, village, ship, and courier to reform his Company with companions old and new, having recently garnered knowledge from a contact in his homeland that could very well turn the tide for good. But to do so, Hale and his friends (and, perhaps, rivals) will have to once more proceed Into the Dark!

    Character Creation, Posting, and other assorted jazz

    Look, I'm not about to be a stickler here on any of this! This is first and foremost to *have fun,* and therefore I'm only really asking for some small amount of effort here:

    Be mindful of your character's powers and abilities - no Godtier! Flaws are FUN

    Try to be diverse in your class relative to other RP'ers characters (i.e., maybe consider a different class other than ranger if there's already another ranger or three!) Diversity is FUN

    At LEAST a couple of paragraphs for your intro post, and at LEAST a paragraph on other posts (I won't be a stickler on this, but c'mon the more you think, the more fun it'll be for you and everyone else) Trying is FUN

    Lastly, I'm not looking to cut off applications unless (haha) they get overwhelming for some absurd reason. I'm also not needing you to post every day, or even every week or two. But at the same time, please try to not go totally AWOL (yeah yeah coming from the Master Flake himself)! Being present is FUN

    Lastly lastly, have FUN. Be creative, be goofy, be serious, be sexual, be whatever you want to be. This isn't the real world, let loose and try that "other" side of you out! Being creative is FUN

    ************************************************

    If you made it to here, thank you for bearing with me and my long friggin' ramblings. Hope this catches some eyes and picks up some steam! After a couple character cards, I'll post an intro post. Hell, I might do it before all that. But again, like I said above, don't worry! I literally won't refuse anyone who wants to have some good ol' creative entertainment times, so have at it whenever you want.

    I could get a character up if you wanted me. I do occasionally suffer from terrible writing though and I love me some long, complex prose, if that is a problem.

    @The Seraph also, if it's not totally uncouth and if you feel comfortable with it, feel free to ask any of those fine folks in your other RP if they'd want to join up!

    And just a head's up - I'm going to go and write out the introductory post, but don't feel rushed, it doesn't depend on any of you guys needing characters yet, just putting a 3rd person limited perspective on Hale and what he's up to.

    History: when Mathias was born in High Rock he was abandoned by his parents and grew up on the streets of Wayrest, where he started to become a ghost and observed the soldiers of the Shadow Empire as they trained and patrolled the streets. after some years he was kidnapped and used by necromancers in a ritual wich backfired on them, killing everyone exept for him.

    Later on as the years went by he trained in the arts of shadow, and sword. as time went on he found out he had abilities like changing his appearance and a deep, almost supernatural connection to the arts of combat, he can even turn into a crow.

    when he beacme older he took on work as a mercenary and assassin fighting against the Empire, becoming infamous throughout most Courts and political powers for his skills and successful missions, and since no one knows his real name the lords and ladies gave him the title The Grimm, the only thing telling it was him is a white rose tainted crimson.

A couple of years ago he and Vaylin heard about the defense against the Shadow Empire up at Northpoint and joined up With them, where they have been ever since. working both outside and insdie their borders in hopes of driving away the Shadow Empire for good.
