    The year, is 221, of the fourth era. It is a time of strange occurrences. In the early days of Last Seed, witnesses reported tremendous flashes of light coming from High Hrothgar, bright as any lightning storm. Since then, none have seen or heard from the Dragonborn, and any who make the pilgrimage up the 7,000 steps, do not return.

    Wider abroad, more disturbing news reaches the ears of nobleman and peasant alike. All throughout Tamriel, reports of riders, hooded and cloaked, roaming from village to village. Where they go, death follows. And the dead do not rest easily. Villages have been seen sitting silent, filled with plague-riddled corpses. Not even a week later, those very dead rise up and lay siege to other towns and villages nearby. Not even the gods can offer safety from this epidemic of rot and death.

    Cities have closed and barred their gates. Guardsmen watch the few travelers allowed inside with great suspicion. A call for adventurers, though bleak, and without much hope behind it, has gone out. Those either brave or mad enough to answer it, will either be marked as the greatest heroes of the age, or just another group of corpses, come back to haunt the people they tried to save.

    Hello,everyone! This is my first roleplay I've started on here. I hope to gather a good group of dedicated, experienced writers. While my main concern is for everyone to enjoy themselves, I do have a few rules.

    1: No godmodding. Should be obvious, but characters that are blatantly overpowered either because of weapons and armour or abilities, won't be accepted.

    2: This is an 18+ RP. That means gore, coarse language, and sexual situations might arise. You've been warned.

    3: Do try to use proper grammar.

    4: Your character may not be a dragonborn (trained to shout/just knows how to.), guild leader, or jarl.

    5: You may have up to two (2) characters.

    6: Try to stay active (at least one post a week.)

    7: Have fun!

    Name: Arenaya Norstrae
    Age: 234, though she appears to be in her late twenties to early thirties.
    Race: Altmer
    Sex: Female

    Class and Combat preference: Arenaya is a powerful sorceress, most skilled in destruction magic, though she has dabbled in alteration and illusion as well. Understandably, she prefers to strike her foes from afar, killing them before they ever have a chance to raise their blade. She does have some close combat spells, useful for a tight situation, but when it comes to physical combat, she is worse than useless. For that, she relies on any companions she happens to be traveling with, and is more than willing to sacrifice then in order to facilitate a quick escape.

    Character Appearance: Arenaya is as tall as most typical Altmer, standing at just under two metres. However, unlike her fellow altmer, she is deathly pale, her skin a pale tan, rather than the rich gold of her kin. Her eyes, also unique, are a steely grey, rather than yellow-gold. She has shoulder length black hair, high cheekbones, a narrow nose, and thin lips. SHe is thin, to the point where passerby could be forgiven for assuming she was on the brink of starvation.

    Her apparel consists of a dark, long sleeved tunic and pants, with an equally dark robe over it all. She wears knee high leather boots, and owns a fairly weather worn cloak, that she dons when traveling. Though she lacks any actual armour, she does possess a ring, silver, and set with a single ruby, that has the power to keep her from death, for a time. The ring itself is not without limitations; the enchantment can only ever be used once, and the ruby set inside will shatter, rendering the jewelry useless. Her second item of 'self preservation' is a necklace that she wears hidden under her tunic. It makes her difficult, but not impossible, to hit from a distance, though it offers no protection in close combat.

    Character image: 20180209152109_1.jpg

    Personality: Arenaya is not what one would call a kind person. She is in search of one thing, and one thing only: greater power. Unless someone has something to offer her, a magical item or piece of arcane lore, she is cold and distant. When in a group, she is a master manipulator, playing her 'companions' against one another to assure that, whatever happens, she triumphs. The only person she shows any kind of affection to is her traveling companion, and bodyguard, Cadrian. Whether this affection is genuine, however, only Arenaya knows.

    History: Born on the somerset isles, Arenaya was always considered a little 'odd'. Not only because of her pale skin, and unique eyes, but by her attitude as well. When other altmer children were out playing, she buried her nose in books. She had little interest in interacting with others of her race, even before she grew out of her childhood. Though concerned, her parents were supportive, arranging for the finest tutors in the Aldmeri Dominion to teach their daughter.

    She spent her first century traveling from place to place on the isles, learning from the wisest of wizards and sorcerers before moving on. Though well into her adult years, her pale skin, and slight build, ensured that most male altmer found her unattractive. Those that made any attempt to get to know her were unnerved by her cold demeanor. This suited her just fine, brushing them aside as the distractions they were. When she had learned as much as she could from those on the isles, she left for the mainland of Tamriel. Traveling from Valenwood to High Rock, in search of knowledge.

    Nearly thirty years into her quest for knowledge, she came across Cadrian- an imperial man, whom she brought into her service. Why, exactly, is a secret between the two of them, though hints dropped by her surly companion hint at a great debt that he owes her. Together, the pair traveled further north, eventually coming to Skyrim. Though Arenaya doubted the crude nords could teach her anything, she'd heard of lost items of arcane power in the underground cities and crypts of that frozen land. Despite recent events, her determination to reach ever greater heights of power is undimmed.

    Name: Cadrian Alessio
    Age: 37
    Race: Imperial
    Sex: male

    Class and Combat preference: Cadrian is a warrior, preferring to take his opponents head on, rather than skulk at range. In his owns words, he has the magical proficiency of a tree stump, and no desire to dabble with scrolls or staffs. Though he does not boast about it, Cadrian is an expert swordsman, capable of cutting down warriors much younger and faster than him. In the heat of combat is when he comes alive, parrying, slashing and stabbing with near unmatchable skill.

    Character Appearance: Cadrian may be in his late thirties, but he seems much older. His hair, a dark brown, is streaked with grey, as is his beard. He keeps both cut fairly short, for practicality, if nothing else. He is ahtletically built, though when not in combat, he is often leaning against something or slouched in a corner, with a far away, almost despairing look in his forest green eyes. Several small scars decorate his face, hinting at a military background. He has matching scars encircling both wrists, hinting at something far darker.

    He wears a mix of chainmail and leather, allowing for quick movements and flexibility, while offering good protection against most attacks. When not in armour, he wears simple clothes, reminiscent of a farmer or miller. His weapon of choice is a steel longsword, though he also has a plain dagger, that he keeps on his person at all times.
    Character image: (Will probably get one up later.)

    Personality: Cadrian is a surly, withdrawn individual, not given to initiating conversation unless absolutely necessary. He often seems to be lost in his own thoughts, most commonly when not performing a task for Arenaya. Those that can get him talking will find that he is fairly humble, and not given to boasting. However, his past is the one thing that he considers off limits. Those that insist on badgering him about it will find nothing but a stubborn refusal, followed by cold anger, if they persist. His past torments him constantly, and he will keep it to himself.

    History: ~As mentioned, Cadrian keeps his past to himself. Does this make him a mysterious character, or am I just a lazy writer? The answer to those questions is :maybe and definitely.~
