    Hm... I don't mind 'adult' type material as long as it is properly tagged and not overly explicit.

    Does the story have to be completely Skyrim orientated?

    I think we've been ok with pretty much anything TES-related. If you want to do writing that is totally away from the TES world, there's a section in the Arts area toward the bottom of the forum list specifically set aside for other sorts of stories.

    You go to the Fan Fiction page, and look at the top of the page for a button that says, "Create a new thread".

    If I ever wanted to write a story, how would I go about making a table of contents with links to the chapters and all that? Computer jargon isn't my thing.

    I am thinking about making a fan fiction. While it wouldnt be about the adventures I've played so far the main character is my in-game character (and my character here on the forms) should i post it under fan fiction or blogs

    Where is the distinction between the Fan Fiction and Roleplaying sections?

    I have a question... actually make that two. I want to post an ongoing story however I have no idea how long it will actually be... I know you suggested chapter markers to hold places for future posts, but since i have no idea how long or involved this story is going to be, any other way to keep it from getting cluttered? My second question is this: the story, A Song of Tamriel, is written from an NPC's point of view on the adventures of his life... does that still need to be blogged or can i put it here?

    Am I allowed to link a story from another site, or should I post it? And does that "all stories should be written by you" thing count of I credit the original author?

    hmm

    just read this in its entirety and I'm still confused a bit, and a wee-bit concerned by the lack of responses from the last few posts.

    so here goes -

    I understand the "explicit" part. No worries there I try to keep things, at least on the sexual level at most PG13... however what about gore? For example, it's actually quite crucial to my stories that the gore and realities of war are present within them. I'm just wondering if that should be titled "explicit" or not. A really good example of real-world movies would be "Saving Private Ryan" and "Lone Survivor," both being rated R (restricted 17+ for non-USA).

    I also still don't understand the difference between short stories and "character journals." The piece I'm working on is really one book. But written in first person by four different people. These will involved all of Skyrim's major plot points - dragons in Helgen, Whiterun, High Hrothgar, Alduin, etc
    and it will also involve quite a few of the minor quests and side quests like the Companions, College of Winterhold, and the Dawnguard.

    so basically, would this be a "journal" and placed in the blog section, or in a thread here? And should it have an "explicit warning" on it (I personally think it should.)

    People around here are usually pretty okay with violence, I mean, Skyrim itself isn't exactly an E for Everyone game, now is it?

    Basically if it's following a character you played in Skyrim's adventures, it's a journal. From what you're describing, it's a fanfiction, since journals are usually only one character's perspective.

    Short stories are, well, short one-shot type stories. They usually only have one 'chapter' so to speak.

    Thanks for the quick response Phantom, that all helps alot. I was kind of wondering because it's funny how on some forums related to M rated games their fanfics/rps and such can have zero gore without a warning... even though the game is rated "M"... :D hence why I wanted to double check.

    and thanks for clearing the other part up as well. It's appreciated.
