    Skyrim lies pregnant with the threat of civil war between the Empire and rebel Stormcloaks.

    Yet another, more clandestine danger awaits in the dark mulling its plans over and sharpening its claws that threatens to plunge Skyrim and ultimately Tamriel into pandemonium.
    Years have passed since the Dragonborn vanquished Alduin, the destroyer of worlds, and vanished himself, possibly emersing himself in the studies and arts of the Greybeards. With the quick learning of a threat in the darkest reaches of Skyrim, one of the former Blades members reaches out to any and all who would respond to aid their dwindling force in tracking down both the Dragonborn and destroying a necromancer that has relearnt of a magic used to bring dead dragons back to life.

    The cold province teeters on destruction as Alduin's return looms on the roiling clouds of fear.

    OOC: This is a Roleplay story with the following rules:

    -No overpowered characters, spells or weapons
    -You may use more than one character but only if you are capable. Two is the limit but three is a push as long as it authorised before the story begins
    -There may/most likely will be killing off of characters but this will be an agreed-upon decision prior to the event of the character being killed
    -No daedric artifacts. Dragonpriest masks are acceptable. We cannot have 6 Mehrune's razors insta-killing every enemy
    -There will be non-playable characters which will be admitted in the official RP thread of the same name
    -Creativity with armour and spells is encouraged
    -Please use this thread for out of context dicussion
    -Have fun

    Yooloo~ WIP post here, kinda buisy atm.

    Text Color: Purple

    Name: Kivuli Careesareeth

    Age: 21

    Gender: Female

    Race: 'Khagonian' Dagi (90% Khajiit, 10% Argonian)

    Height: 5'6"

    Weight: 125 lbs

    Class: Werewolf Assassin/Mage (One-Handed (Adept), Archery (Expert))

    Physical Description: Thin and lithe, meant for quick attacks or distance attacks.

    Personality: Heart of gold, Kivuli is often seen giving back to the poor and marginalized in the Holds. However, as the Dark Brotherhood's listener, she's grown accostumed to burying that love when she needs to perform her chosen duties. Has a very sarcastic sense of humor, often snarking at anything and anyone to amuse herself or others. Gets defensive when anyone mocks her for her halfblood heritage or her lycanthropy.

    Magic: Destruction (Adept) Conjuration (Master), Thu'um (Marked For Death - KRII LUN AUS)

    Weapons: 'Black Lightning' -Ebony Dagger- (Shock Damage/Soul Trap), Black Phobia -Ebony Bow- (Fear/Turn Undead)

    Dislikes: High Elves/Wood Elves, Racism (Works to end it in Skyrim), Vampires (Within reason, a few have proven themselves), The Silver Hand, The Vigilants of Stendarr, the Legion/Imperials.

    Backstory: Kivuli is part of the Careesareeth Clan of khajiit who took over Markarth after aiding the Forsworn. She took to the beast blood that her mother Zaraji carried, and had a natural talent for magic due to he subspecies (Dagi). She ended up a part of the DB at age 14, after helping out a young Aventus Aretino after just joining the Stormcloaks. She quickly proved worthy of joining them, growing particularly fond of Nazir, Babette, Festus, and Arnbjorn. That is, until she was betrayed by Astrid and the Sanctuary was set ablaze. After saving Nazir, Babette, and the Night Mother, Kivuli finished Astrid off and went afte Commander Maro. She was able to bribe some Legion-resenting guards to frame Maro for the Emperor's murder with her help.

    Name: Lazgl gra-Narzulbur

    Age: 19

    Gender: Female

    Weight: 130 lbs

    Class: Healer/Alchemist/Warrior (Two-Handed (Adept), Heavy Armor (Adept))

    Hair/Eye Color: Deep raspberry feline eyes, bright orange hair in this layerd himecut and two locks framing face

    Skin Tone: Greyish fur with a noticeable green tint. Blue warpaint around eyes and on forehead

    Physical Description: Seems scrawny, but has enough brute strength to swing a warhammer in heavy armor

    Personality: Sweet and generous, she'd give you the robe off her back if she had to. Prefers to use her potions and magic to heal, but isn't afraid to poison her warhammer and squash you with it if you attack her. Very sarcastic sense of humor, often uses it to poke holes in a plan or amuse people.

    Magic: Restoration (Master), Alteration (Adept)

    Weapons: 'Emerald Thunder' -Orcish Warhammer- (Shock Damage and Absorb Health)

    Casual Clothing: Green Robes (Restoration+Magicka Regen/Health regen), Gold-Emerald ring (Fortify Two-Handed/Alchemy), Orcish Shield (Resist Shock/Magic), Amulet of Mara

    Likes: Smithing, healing, swimming

    Dislikes: High Elves/Wood Elves, Racism (Works to end it in Skyrim), Vampires (Within reason, a few have proven themselves), the Legion/Imperials, and NORDS. With a PASSION.

    Backstory: Lazgl was raised in the Narzulbur Stronghold, left there on the Chief's doorstep. So he took her in, noting the obvious Orc in her. (With the small tusks and fur tinting) She gew up like any other Orc did, with most of her focus in magic. The way she calls it is 'Fighting the invisible invaders of the body with the same ferocity our Chief fights off the visible invaders of the Stronghold.', wording it like that got the Chief to accept it somewhat. Enough to send her off to the College of Winterhold for more training. After that she joined the Dawnguard.

    That sounds like fun, necromancer are always badass. And I like the potential of tracking down the dragonborn, maybe he's sworn off humanity and went to live I hiding or is training a new generation in the voice. lots of possibilities. maybe the Dragonborn distracts the necromancer's right hand dragon while we fight him and his undead soldiers. sounds pretty solid.

    Here are both of my roleplay characters, both of which I will be using:

    Name: Alla'Amir
    Race: Khajiit
    Sex: Male
    Height: 5'8"
    Brief description: A mangy khajiit with no discernible habitual neatness save for the brass hooped earrings that hang equal lengths from each other on each ear. His coat is a mass of intermixed oranges and browns but decorated with complex patterns of stripes - a trait considered a flaw by his parents
    Weapon preferences: Daggers, and rarely a bow
    Profile: A self-serving khajiit with little expectation of others and even less confidence in his kin. He prefers his own company due to seclusion at home early in his childhood yet adores affection and praise.
    Niches: Alla'Amir is a thief and frequent abuser of skooma either of which often land him in trouble. Although his refined lockpicking skills have worm him out of certain situations, he remains a wanted criminal in Skyrim. He is one of the more matter-of-fact thieves who knows whom he can outdo and whence he can thieve and escape

    Name: Ysarth the watcher or Ysarth
    Race: High Elf
    Class: Swordsman
    Gender: Male
    Brief description: 5'7" slightly more muscular than the usual slim high elves. Snow-Blonde hair, almost white. Green eyes. Slim face with a noticable scar on his chin in the shape of two claws scratch. Wears a white set of elven armour.
    Personality: Well spoken but knows when his tongue should be still. A listener, a watcher who misses little detail even in the heat of battle
    Combat prefences: A dwarven greatsword often with a bow, but prefers the graceful music of steel against steel
    Misc: Not much is known about his childhood or from whence he came, as he does not share much of his life before coming to Skyrim. Well known by the occupants of Riverwood. A traveller but he prefers long, peacefull weeks outside Ivarsted, admiring nature and watching the many travellers who make their way to and from the small town
    Niches: The warrior and gifted swordsman of any company with morals such as honesty and respect held close at heart which earn him the place of aspiration and mystery. The elf is the guardian within the wilds of the province, watching and listening to the whispers of natures and its warnings

    Seeing as three characters will be travelling from the Bannered Mare, upon reaching the Winking Skeever in Solitude you will be stopped at the front gate by one of the guards and after explaining why you had come to the capital, are escorted into the winking skeever and traded escorts with the innkeep whom will escort you to a room hidden behind the barkeep. In this room are tables and chairs thick with dust, obviously abandoned for many years. We will all meet here

    O yes, and you will all receive a letter, either by courier or at one of the taverns, addressed specifically to you, requesting your presence as the Winking Skeever, such as my post in the actual RP

    Sounds good. So, which side should have won the Civil War? As Kiv's a Stormcloak General.

    I think it would be cool to have the civil war not yet begun, and have it begin somewhere in our story and go from there. We can vote at a later stage who wins the war?

    Sounds good. Ulfric could just be starting to get his men together, and Kiv was one of the first recruits.

    We can make the maturity of the war a little older and have Kiv do a primary mission to go undercover into Solitude to get information of the Imperial troops and happens across the letter?
