    Also, question for you all, in Lilium's CC, are the links easy to see and click, and do they work?

    My only problem is the dark green font. It's hard to see somethings. At least for me.

    That must be on your end, the color I used for her font is the lightest shade of green in the pallet. but can you see links like this; [example]

    I just wanna make sure that they are easy to see and access cause they are a pretty big part of the CC's I make.

    @Snoball Pardon my french here, but I fluffing love this character. If not for the fact that he's really cool and well designed, then because how well he is going to fit into our little dynamic here. @Sweetroll76 captured my thoughts for the most part. He's going to fit in nicely, and quite nicely at that.

    There is one thing, still, however. Lilium is ummm..... rather um.... well, she tends to avoid rather tough and rugged looking individuals. Now this isn't much a problem, 'cause whilst talking to Spenser and Jinn, he could over hear us talking or something depending on the way things flow. However she would need to be convinced of his conviction to join her expedition. Could you give me some sort of motivation to Jacoby being interested in such an adventure?

    Outside of that, it's outstanding, and I'm going to close casting for the time being until I get to read whatever bit of writing you are planning to provide! (It'll no doubt be as great)

    Wow, thank you both so much for your kind compliments :) I tried going more in-depth with him than any of my other characters, just to match the quality all three of you put into your own AMAZING characters. And as for a motivation, Jacoby's main reason for devoting himself to the cause is mainly redeeming himself and bringing glory back to House Hlaalu (I added bullets to the Background section of his CC for a quick run-down of his history if any are interested. My writing sample is a direct follow-up to this). Though he does want to protect others as well, that's not his biggest concern initially (which hopefully changes throughout the course of the story!)

    That being said, here's the writing sample:

    ______________________________________________________________________________

    The Verdict​

    It was cold and silent within the walls of Ashfallow Citadel as the night had begun to fall over Solstheim. A boat docked in Raven Rock’s port patiently waited to carry out Jacoby’s exile and take him from his home in the morning. This lingered in Jacoby’s head, as he lied in his sheets restlessly and more somber than usual. But he knew there was one last matter he had to attend to before bidding this run-down fort farewell. He needed to hear her one last time, he needed to know she hadn’t truly abandoned him yet. As such, he made his way to the other end of the fort while his brothers and sisters slept. He had eventually arrived at the Hall of Ancestors, the Morag Tong's wing dedicated to prayer and meditation with the legends of olden days.

    Like a criminal appearing before a judge and jury, Jacoby slowly walks past the portraits of his Dunmer ancestors. Their red. pulsing eyes pierce his very soul. The portraits are hung high, as if they are meant to be looking down on him. These individuals represented the prime and glory of the Morag Tong and House Hlaalu, a glory that some low-life assassin like Jacoby could never even hope to attain. Then there, at the end of the hall, stood the judge herself. A grand statue of the Webspinner, Mephala, adorned the end of the hall, seemingly waiting for the young dark elf. With a dry, audible gulp, Jacoby goes down on one knee and places his dagger just before the statue. He leaves his hand on it and closes his eyes.

    “Please.” He needs to hear her like he used to. He demands it. Years have passed without him hearing her sweet, subtle song, and when he needed her the most she would always send at least a sign. “Please…..” But now, here he waited in utter silence. His long breaths and steady heartbeat were the only things he heard in the hall. Now he was getting aggravated. “I SAID PLEASE, DAMN IT!” Jacoby stood up, breathing much faster and heavier. “Is this not what you want? To see me beg and plead for your counsel? Is that not what every Daedric Prince wants?” The silence was louder than any possible sound. It was deafening almost. Unable to stand this torment, he quickly retakes his dagger, clutching onto the bladed side by accident. The blade cuts a bit into his palm, but the pain was nothing compared to the turmoil he was feeling within himself. He eventually calms down and takes a step back from the statue. He gives the mistress of lies and deceit one last pain-filled look. “One day, you’ll realize you were wrong about me. And what a day it will be.” Clutching his palm, he turns his back on the statue and the portraits that lined the walls. He slams the door shut behind him, with Mephala’s judgment made final: Silence.

    Hey guys, sorry for my late reply and sudden disappearance. I'll probably be back on Monday or Tuesday. I had a filling in my tooth break out, and the cavity went septic. Nice little emergency :)

    Talk to you all soon <3

    If your still looking for someone to be a rogue, I would gladly take the part. Also I do see that it says your not taking anymore writers, but if you change you mind just tell me. Then I will post my OOC and a sample of my writing, or you can check out my RP The Forgotten Tales and see for yourself. I will most likely use my OOC from there but change her up a bit.

    As it says in the title of my Thread, we are not looking for anymore writers - nor does that mean we will be making any changes to that status. All the roles we had available have been filled, including the Rogue/Assassin character; which is why the title is saying "no longer searching". I'm sorry if my original post hasn't been updated to reflect that.

    Thank you for your interest though! I think I can say for the others as well here, that we appreciate you're looking into it! Good luck with your RP and your Character, and good luck with your writing! I hope to see you around and I'll check out your writing!

    Aaaa sorry for my inactivity! I have my first mid-terms tomorrow so I have become a 'study-aholic' if that can be a term used... haha!
    Anyway, I absolutely ADORE your character @Snoball ! So dark and dynamic, ah! I cannot wait to roleplay with you all. It is going to be a heck of a story and I am glad it will be with you all!

    I am very excited for this to begin. And sorry if I missed anything I should be aware of aaaa-

    Thursday will be my night of wrap-ups. Which means I will have the IC thread put together by midnight. It'll be started with a little.....surprise.....and I'll start up the posting with Lilium!

    I would like to ask you all for one thing from each of you for your characters. Give me something you think would be in their nightmares. I'm not saying write anything, just give me an example. Like with my character, Lilium's would be seeing the moments leading up to her father's death; because she never got to see or hear exactly how it happened outside of a vague and censored description - and thus her traumatized mind would fill in that blank.

    I'm not going to tell you all why exactly I am needing to get this information from you, but I will say that it will be important at some point in the story, but you'll all just have to wait and see ;)

    (don't worry, it'll be great :D)

    @Specter of Death Ooooh I am so excited! Thursdays are already my favorite days of the weeks! Now I have more a reason to look forward to Thursday! <3 Oh I wonder... I am curious as to what you are planning! Obviously, Spenser's nightmares are flashbacks of fires and the burning of his family. It's a big part of his character which I know you already know, but I thought I would just quickly repeat it for you for quick access, haha!

    Jinn is definitely afraid of being trapped, and a true nightmare would be stuck in a small place being pursued by Dwemer centurions and spheres.

    One thing however, is her nightmares would be of her final battle in what I will call a 'previous life of hers' where most of her comrades are killed and she is defeated, and the feeling of that defeat and guilt is what truly haunts her to this day.

    Oooooh interesting! I'd say Jacoby's nightmare would involve him being isolated/cut off from everyone and everything (as if he was the only man alive). His experiences (Parents sending him to Solstheim, kicked from Morag Tong, disgraced by House Hlaalu) make him pretty susceptible to feeling like an outcast/abandoned

    ALRIGHT, I know I said by midnight, but I've had a single minor set back, so this afternoon I'll have everything prepared for you all! Sorry for the miscalculation, it'll be worth it! Hold me to it! <3
