    Moi as Vienna Castbrooke and Alindion
    This is my first attempt at making an RP. Hope people like it. This takes place ten years before the Dragonborn appears and is about adventuring through the Dwemer ruin of Kthondmz as a research team. Things go wrong and we have to fight our way out of the ruin. Kthondmz consists of five sections; the Entrance, the Master's Halls, the Slave's Halls, the Labratory and the Furnace. Hope you enjoy Falmer and Chaurus and Automations. Here is character template.

    Here are mine.


    Name: Alindion

    Race: Altmer

    Gender: Male

    Age: 56

    Armour and Clothing: College robes which increase magic. Because those are the only robes I actually like the look of. Also the Ironflesh spell.

    Weapons: Adept level Destruction and Conjuration spells. Also a steel dagger he does not know how to use.

    Personality: He is very eager and excitable, able to get worked up over very little. He is also naive and kind of ditzy. He is very trusting and is often swindled. He has trouble recognizing when people are showing an interest in him or when he is being too probing with his questions. He is often very charitable and tried to give all that he can go those in need, even if it is at a detriment to himself.

    Appearance: Alindion is roughly 6 feet 5 inches and relatively lean. He is not particularly well built or physically strong. He appears to be a young man, though he is middle aged by human standards. He has an angular face with sharp features, a Roman nose and amber eyes. He has a beard and long blonde hair he keeps in a pony tail. His skin color is a light gold.

    Backstory: Alindion was born into a noble family in Alinor. He led a very prestigious and sheltered life and when the Great War came a-knocking he wanted to go and fight. His parents knew better and tried to stop him but he still managed to sneak out and join the army. As soon as he reached the Imperial City, he almost immediately got injured and managed to hobble off into an alleyway. There he met a Breton alchemists named Vienna who helped him and got him to safety. They became close friends and when the War ended they decided to move to Skyrim where Vienna could go back to being a mercenary and Alindion could research the Dwemer as he had always wanted to. After nearly a decade of researching the tonal architecture of the Dwemer, Alindion became convinced that the secret to unlocking it would be in the ruin of Kthondmz. He, alongside Vienna, then began to search for mercenaries and fellow scholars to join them.

    Dialog Color: Bright Cyan


    Name: Vienna Castbrooke

    Race: Breton

    Gender: Female

    Age: 32

    Armour and Clothing: A full set of actual steel plate, not the kind that is vacuformed to a woman's chest. Underneath that, she wears a leather vest with a cotton shirt underneath and leather pants.

    Weapons: A Dwarven sword and fire spells.

    Personality: She presents herself as being very aloof and distant, yet is very affectionate to people she warms up to. She has a very strict code of honor which includes not hurting the defenseless and wounded. She is very passionate about fighting and dislikes assassins and thieves and archers as they shy away from actual combat.

    Appearance: She is 5 feet 11 inches tall and of a well built stature. She is very strong and muscled. She has a youthful appearance. She has an oval face with soft features, a long thin nose and brown eyes. She has short, bobbed brown hair and fair skin.

    Backstory: Vienna was born on Betony to a peasant family. After a brutal famine that devastated her family, she moved to Daggerfall to look for work. While she was there, she defended a noble man from being mugged by thieves. The noble turned out to be the king of Daggerfall and he promptly brought her into his court so she may be trained as a knight, due to her valiant actions. Ten years later, the king was killed by assassins. Vienna leff High Rock out of shame. She became an apprentice under an alchemist, whose shop was destroyed in the Great War. When she met an injured Almeri soldier, she tended to him because she still clung onto her sense of honor. She grew to enjoy his enthusiastic nature and when he moved to Skyrim and went with him to make sure nothing bad happened to him. She gradually fell in love with him, busy he never reciprocated those feelings.

    Dialog Color: Pale Yellow

    So there are my two cents; a ditzy Altmer mage and a tsundere Breton knight.

    Interesting. I can have a cc up no later.than friday.

    Name: Dantus Horvad

    Race: Imperial

    Gender: Male

    Age:33

    Armour or Clothing: A set of tan and brown robes, with a dark blue tunic and brown pants underneath. He wears a pair of rugged, brown leather boots that don't quite reach his knees, and have clearly seen their fair share of use.

    Weapons: A plain wooden staff, topped with an ruby, and bound with a dozen or so charges of firebolt. Beyond that, he can cast mostly adept level destruction and alteration spells.

    Personality: Generally a mild tempered man, Dantus is very interested in discovering ancient civilzations, artefacts, and knowledge, and will get along with any who feel the same. The only way to really gain his enmity is by being deliberately ignorant, or destroying the aforementioned things. He is a very curious individual, which has lead him into trouble more times than he can count.

    Appearance: Just over five and a half feet in height, Dantus will not win any points on the intimidation scale. He is fairly thin, and his dark brown hair, while short, often appears windblown and out of order. His beard, while also short, is neatly trimmed, giving him some appearance of a dignified individual. His deep green eyes are often alight with curiosity.

    Backstory: Born to a middle class imperial family in Leyawiin, Dantus had little intersest in joining the college of whispers or the Synod. Instead, he dedicated his time to reading, not military battles or recent events, like his twin brother, Darius, but of ancient peoples, long since passed from the world.

    The Aylieds were the first to capture his interest, and as a young man, he spent many an hour combing through the ruins that dotted Cyrodiil. But those ruins were not without danger, and at his family's insistence, he studied alteration and destruction magics, enough to protect himself at least, as much as he found the thought of violence distasteful, the undead that frequented the ruins had no such qualms.

    When he learnt all he could of the Aylieds, he turned his attention to the Dwemer, those ancient dwarves that had disappeared from the world without a trace. He had heard of the snow elves in some writings as well, but his true interest lay in the ancient, automated cities of the dwarves, their workings and their mysteries as well. Having heard of a great number of said cities exhisting in the harsh north of Tamriel, he set out with nothing but his notes, his robes, and his staff.

    Dialog Color: This pale red.

    Name: Hallen Vaeur

    Race: Redguard

    Gender: Male

    Age: 27

    Armour or Clothing: For attire, Hallen wears a light leather and mail cuirass which covers' his torso and hips. Underneath that, he wears a navy blue silk tunic, unusually resplendent and flashy for a so-called rogue. Leather boots cover his legs to the knee, and he dons a pair of baggy tan trousers, with leather armour over the thighs and knees. A leather eyepatch, enchanted to protect against illusion magics covers his left eye.



    Weapons: A scimitar, a pair of daggers, and a bandolier holding four throwing knives.

    Personality: Hallen is a charmer, much preferring to schmooze his way through life, rather than go looking for fights. He is easy going and doesn't tend to hold grudges. He doesn't care for uptight, law-abiding types, though he won't go out of his way to piss them off,either.

    Appearance: Hallen isn't all that tall, standing only at 5'6". His build is more lean than it is the muscular build of a warrior, but years at sea have granted him iron hard musculature. He is dark skinned, with a shaven face and scalp, with green eyes. His left ear has several diamond piercings, and his right arm is decorated with a tattoo of a sea serpent. Besides a small scar at the right corner of his mouth, his body is unmarked by blades or magic.

    Backstory: Hallen never knew his birth parents- he was found off the coast of High Rock by the servants of a low ranking noble house. With no children of their own, duke and duchess Vaeur decided to raise the redguard baby as their own. It quickly became obvious that Hallen was not one to adhere to rules. Frequently running off to play with children outside the Vaeur estate, or getting lost in the city of Wayrest, until a house servant could retrieve him. As he grew older, he developed a talent for both swordplay and wordsmithing, winning the hearts of many a lass.

    He also developed a penchant for games of chance, and could be found into the late hours in the taverns of the city. Winning most of his games, though many of them through a sleight of hand, rather than honest play. Eventually, corsair raids became a real threat, and a call for men at arms was issued. Though it was against the wishes of his adoptive parents, the adventurous Hallen took to the sea. He adapted well to the sailors life, hunting down many a pirate and raider along the coast. This was also when he lost his eye, though luckily for young Hallen, the wound was treated before infection set in.

    With the corsairs diminished, he once more returned to land with a taste for adventure and gambling and set out for Skyrim, hearing strange stories from the lands of the nords.

    Name: Beran Masros

    Race: Nord

    Gender: Male

    Age: 46

    Armour or Clothing: Beran wears a coat of battered steel plate. While it's by no means in bad condition, it has clearly seen its fair share of battle. He also wears heavy, armored boots and spiked gauntlets. For travelling or attempting to be somewhat covert, he owns a ragged brown cloak with a hood.

    Weapons: A two handed greatsword, with a leather wrapped hilt, and flat pommel. The blade itself is in good condition, despite Beran having used it for years now. His gauntlets also serve as weapons. Above the knuckles are four, two inch steel spikes, making for deadly close combat weapons.

    Personality: Beran is an outsider, never staying anywhere for long. Not because he dislikes people, but because he feels he does not fit in with normal society. Despite this he is generous and kind, even if you wouldn't know it to look at him. He believes in upholding the law, so long as the law does not oppress the people.

    Appearance: Beran is a mountain of a man. He stands at 6'5" and weighs around 215lbs, outside of his armor. Heavily muscled from years of training and combat, a quick glance will reveal that he is no stranger to combat. Scars mark his arms, all the way up to the shoulder. Since he's rarely seen out of armor, it can be assumed they continue to cover most of his torso as well. He has shaved his head, revealing even more scars, but his eyebrows and short beard indicate that he has straw colored hair. His eyes are a deep blue, almost black.

    Backstory: Beran has always been a pariah. Growing up in Karthwasten, the other children taunted and avoided him because of his size. When he was able to swing a pickaxe, he worked the mines. There, he found acceptance, if the occasional joke at his expense. When the forsworn attempted to take over the mines, he fought them with nothing more than a mining pick, while the others ran and hid. The mine was closed down after, that, as mercenaries from the Silver-Bloods came in an attempt to force the owner to sell the mine.

    With his future in the Reach looking bleak, he quickly left that mountainous region and became a blade for hire. Despite the bad name most mercenaries got, Beran frequently went out of his way to help others, even if he jeoparodized his task while doing so. However he never stayed in one place for long, worried that bounty hunters from the vengeful silver bloods would track him. Add to that his feeling about fitting into society, he is frequently moving from place to place.

    Dialog Color: This brown.
