    This will be the recruitment and OOC for the Talos Restoration campaign. I already have two players in, TheDreamerverse and Sweetroll76.(hope I got both of those right, it was off the top of my head)

    We will also be accepting another potential character, if you would like to get involved just a couple things to keep in mind. First off there is NO rush for anyone to post. this is a leisure, a pass time. no one needs to feel stressed about it. So while we want to keep the story going let's not bother people too much. Second when you post in the story please post more than a single paragraph. I get it sometimes you're busy or sometimes a curt response is what fits the character and situation best but let's not make it habit.

    The general setting is parallel to the events of skyrim. Talos has been away from the world and now sees his empire needs him. so he speaks to a band of heroes. a collection from all walks, men and mer, believer and heretic, and pulls people from all places to announce his return.

    I'm toying with a "WILL OF TALOS" mechanic and having the ninth divine speak to the characters to help push their movements. let me know what you guys think

    Next I invite my current players to post their characters!

    Ooh by the way are any of the other divines going to be present? Like maybe sometime after Talos speaks to the characters like something bad happens and another divine is like 'don't lose hope' or something. Or ooh like Talos doesn't know what kind of the people he should choose so one of the other divines is like choose this person because yadda yadda yadda. Until all three (possibly more if others join) are chosen by another divine to help Talos. And since I love to be an Elf. I'm probably going to be a High Elf whose not loyal to the Dominion.

    That's entirely fine. the idea was that Talos sees a strength in the characters that he can use to his divine purpose. other divines are involved and worship of other divines is still on the board. the idea is that the characters themselves don't know why they are picked. some might have been loyal to Talos and some may have believed he was a false divine only to be surprised when he reaches out to them. my character is an elf as well who was a member of the Dominion before his vision and now has to reconcile what he was told with his vision and try to find the truth. so having other divines is on the table most definitely

    Hey! Was curious to see if this was still in the works? My friend and I were looking into hopping into an rp after a bit of an absense, and we liked the sound of yours and were quite interested.

    Daruin
    "Let your sword be sharp and true, and your mind even more so."<:::::::::{|===[}~ Basic ~{]===|}:::::::::>

    CLASS: Swordsman/Skirmisher

    PROFESSION: Former enforcer and assassin of the Dominion

    LATERALITY: Right-handed

    SEXUALITY: Straight

    RELATIONSHIP STATUS: Single

    AFFLICTIONS: Paranoia

    RELIGION: Previosly worshipped the eight divines. Currently devout to Talos

    <:::::::::{|===[}~ Appeaance ~{]===|}:::::::::>

    BUILD: Lean and well muscled, short.

    FACE: Smooth features with high cheek bones and pouty lips.

    EYES: Deep brown, almost black

    SKIN TONE: Very pale.

    HAIR STYLE: Long hair formed into dreadlocks which he wears tied back. The dreads have various bells woven into them which jingle when he walks.

    HAIR COLOR: Deep crimson red.

    SCARS: Many scars criss cross his entire body although they are faded in a way that doesn't suggest time but that he was worked on by skilled healers.

    TATTOOS: None

    PIERCINGS: None.
    <:::::::::{|===[}~ Personality ~{]===|}:::::::::>

    TEMPER: While he has a significant temper he has been trained to harness or ignore it based on the situation.

    OUTLOOK: As a war orphan, adopted and indoctrinated into the Dominion he was raised as a literal tool of his handlers will. Now faced with the possibility of freedom and choice he now has a cautious optimism.

    HONOR: Very honorable. The Altmer placed honor high in his core values as a swordsman for the Dominion. While he was used for assassinations he felt compelled to reveal himself to his targets before attacking.

    ALIGNMENT: Lawful Neutral. His life has been dictated from his earliest memories by routine and discipline. He would be seen by many as neither evil or good. Has a very "ends justify the means" outlook.

    POSITIVE TRAITS: Straight forward, Tenacious, Problem Solving, Compassionate, Disciplined

    NEGATIVE TRAITS: Stubborn, Reserved, Untrusting, Rigid

    PHOBIAS: Arachnophobia

    HABITS/QUIRKS: On the rare occasion he zones out he plays with the bells in his hair

    ASPIRATIONS/GOALS: Use his newfound freedom to explore and find meaning in himself. Discover what Talos wants him to accomplish

    <:::::::::{|===[}~ Gear and Fighting Style
    HEAD: None

    TORSO: Supple leather jerkin along with the rest of his outfit mimics the look of the Thalmor Juaticars. There are small sheathes seen into the armor for his throwing knives, two under each arm along the ribs and one on the left chest/shoulder area where the knife can be drawn in a downward pulling motion.

    ARMS AND SHOULDERS: Black Leather gauntlets. He also wears a half-cape which hangs from his left shoulder to just below waist height.

    WAIST: A thick leather belt which holds a variety of pouches and small phials including some poisons.

    LEGS AND FEET: The greaves and boots of this outfit match the look of the Justicar. The boots have been subtley enchanted to grant him more stamina.

    EVERYDAY CARRY: A waterskin and a coin purse. Also his symbol of Talos. Beyond this he does not carry more than he absolutely has to.

    WEAPONS: Elven Sword and 5 throwing knives

    FIGHTING ABILITIES: A highly skilled swordsman and duelist. Was trained as an acrobat and assassin as well but it has always been sword skill which was emphasized.

    FIGHTING STYLE: A very fast and agile form of swordsmanship that relies on skill and mobility over armor for protection. Prefers to fight one on one but when other people get between him and his target he will often disengage to attack from another angle or use his knives with a paralyze poison to give him the opportunity to go on the attack.

    <:::::::::{|===[}~ History ~{]===|}:::::::::>

    UPBRINGING: Daruin knows he was born in Skyrim not long before the war between the Empire and the Dominion. He can remember nothing of his parents and know only that he was told he was found in the ashes of a village, still only a young child, crying, lost and alone. It was at this time he was found by Dominion agents and swept up to the Summer Isles with them. There he was gifted to the Noble Altmer family of Auri-el. And it was to them that he became a servant and a blade of the Dominion.

    Under the Patronage of the Auri-el he was taught by some of the greatest swordmasters the Dominion had to offer. Eschewing heavy armor for swift and precise attacks and form. This was compounded with tutelage in the arts and history. It was drilled that his mind needed to be as sharp as his blade. Beyond that the study of herbs and alchemy to allow him to heal in the field as well as debilitate his opponents with poisons. And most importantly the doctrine and righteousness of the Dominion was taught above all else.

    As he came of age his training was put to practical use as he was given to a Dominion Justicar on mission to cleanse Skyrim of the heresy of the worship of Talos. He killed men women and children for such trespasses but such was his faith that he slept soundly. Until the fateful night when he heard that voice...*AWAKEN*...and his world was shattered.

    Absolutely! Were both relativrly familiar, as weve been here for a few years, but it is much appreciated. I am currently at work at the moment, and Hlif is working on some things at the moment, but I do have the link to my rp that is currently in hibernation to show both of our work so you csn get an idea of how we operate.

    If you'd like to see an example of my characters please refer to my blog, though I have about... 15 cards that are unpublished and in various stages of completion that are not present. I will more than likely be drawing on these for my character if I do decide to join.

    Does anyone want a copy of my template I use to put mine together? My cards tend to take me quite some time and I don't do them in one sitting but I've had plenty of compliments on them so it pays off. On that point would you be willing to give us the option to submit an example of our writing rather than a CC so we can take the time to format them if we so choose or perhaps a CC from a different character as an example. I find good writers are flexible and willing to edit or change characters to suit a rp so once all slots are full we could move on to analyzing characters as they suit or don't suit the rp. It would give us time to create a CC of a higher quality rather than something quickly pasted together. Though I understand not everyone needs this.... Just some thoughts and typical overthinking rambles.

    Hello again, finally managed to fix the card up how I wanted it, so I figured I'd go ahead and throw it up here, hope you all like him! Also this is a form of the card Hlif mentioned, if you feel that you might be interested in the format. It's definitely my favorite cc set up that I've used since joining.

    Kaenach

    Orsimer Male

    18th of Rain's Hand

    The Reach

    The Mage Sign​

    PERSONAL DETAILS:


    Alias: To his former mentor, or to those he calls friend, he is known simply as Kaen.

    Apparent age: The mage, despite the lines left by an intense concentration and copious amounts of stress, is only in his mid-twenties.

    Sexuality: The orc does not show signs of romantic interest toward either sex in his interactions, nor in his inflections or body language. Whether he actually feels any of these things is his business alone, and is strictly on a need to know basis, as far as he is concerned.

    Marital status: Kaenach does not have a partner, though he is far too engrossed in his studies to much care for such a connection. While he feels it could happen at some point, he is not out looking. Time will bring what it will. Best to focus on what's important now.

    Occupation: Kaenach has no set occupation, content with drifting from place to place, seeking out arcane knowledge where possible. While not an occupation his desire to become the foremost expert in the school of destruction magic has become a goal which he can aspire to and work toward, and that’s good enough for him.

    Residence: Other than the cabin that he grew up in alongside his father, Kaen has no property under his own name. Though this is no cause for concern, as settling down in one place was never nor will ever be Kaen's intention.

    Family: The orc's mother unfortunately had passed due to complications during his birth. His father however, is still alive, though keeps to himself in his secluded location away from prying eyes. This is the only family he has ever known, and is thankful that they remain on good terms.

    Affiliations: He has connections to both the stronghold of Mor Khazgur, the home of his now deceased mother, and the College of Winterhold. While he remains in good standing with the college despite leaving to take private tutelage from Arilwyn, his standing with the land of his mother has suffers, as they care little for his existence, and see him as a disgrace.


    Political Views: The thought of one butchering his brother for faceless kings and emperors that care not for he or his kin is baffling to the orc. The Civil War is naught but a distraction from the obvious threat. He does not understand why anyone could not see that unity is the only answer in times like these. Common sense, says he.

    Religion: Kaen has witnessed his father speak of the old gods of his people, and has studied upon them, as well as Malacath, the patron god of his mother and her ancestors, Kaen himself does not share in their revelry. However, he does partake of a certain gift bestowed to him by his father, his one connection to the religion of the Forsworn, or perhaps more to the hagravens they seem to revere. Hircine.

    Affliction/Disease/Ailments: Lycanthropy



    Physiology: While not the hulking individual that one would expect the average orc to be, Kaenach is no slouch. The predictable bulk and muscle have been replaced with a leaner figure, strong yet lacking the power that one of a stouter character from his people. The muscles that do cross his figure show a well worked and honed physique, as the orc never could sit still long enough to allow himself to grow heavyset from inactivity or intense study. Each limb is a fine tooled extension of a healthy orsimer, leaving him a fine specimen despite not following the expected path of one of his race.

    As the focus shifts to his face however, one cannot mistake his heritage. Deep set lines brought about by both genetics and study have given a permanent scowl to the face of the orc, no matter his temperament, supported by a furrowed brow that puts forth an aggressive demeanor that he may or may not possess. The tusks set in his jaw alongside his well-kept teeth are smaller than one may have seen before, but are still not unnoticeable, a private annoyance that Kaen feels as he looks upon himself in any reflective surface. Leaving the powerful jaw, we move further up to the top of his head, his hair swept into a mixture of styles that seem to indicate a homage to both heritages of his birth. A thick mohawk splits the scalp down the center as it flows down loosely toward the back, leaving the hair on the sides to be bound into unexpectedly neat rows, each letting off into a beaded or otherwise decorated braid that swing loosely around his neck. His brows lack any sort of tusk or horn like additions, but he has taken it upon himself to not leave them bare, letting a piercing in the form of a torc take the place above his right eye, along with two similar torcs in his right ear, one of which carrying what could be a beast's tusk, were one to be capable of getting close enough to investigate. All of these features frame a set of flaxen eyes, always accompanied with a determined squint as he silently observes every detail, every movement, quietly anticipating every action by those around him, as well as himself.





    Voice: Husky, Gravelly



    PERSONALITY: Kaen is quite unlike his orsimer brethren. Ever a conundrum Kaenach plays the part of a hermit mage, focusing solely on his work and study and leaving little to no time spent jawing with the local populace. He lacks any sort of speechcraft talent, leaving him rather blunt and straightforward when others ask things of him or ask for his thoughts or opinions, leaving no room for tact or weaving of illusions for the sake of saving face. This causes him to get into trouble or get off on the wrong foot with people quite often, more often than not putting his foot in his mouth at the worst of times. Because of this he remains reclusive when possible, finding solace and peace in his solitude. However, there is an admittedly darker side to Kaen that few have often invoked, seeming to be the collection of a great rage carried by both sides of his ancestry along with the bloodlust from his gift. There are times, small moments in which Kaen can become overwhelmed to the point of outrage, thrashing about wildly with reckless abandon that he may or may not be capable of controlling. This has caused him to be responsible for the death of more than one person, leading to a heavy fine in Markarth proper, as well as his desire to further cut himself off from the rest.




    Positive Traits:
    Attentive, Honest, Observant, has at times been helpful to the point of going out of his way for others, but these flashes are few and far between. Passionate about what he loves.

    Negative Traits:

    Aggressive, Reckless, Blunt, can become Violent at random times depending on where his mind takes him. Clumsy, Bitter.



    Likes:
    Arcane knowledge, ancient ruins of any sort, reading, may or may not like setting things on fire.




    Dislikes:
    Judgmental people, Mockery of his practice or race, those who would dismiss him before proving himself.






    Alignment: Chaotic Good




    upload_2017-12-19_14-46-18.jpeg



    Combat Stats/Details: When it comes to combat, or rather the application of his lessons, the orc thrives when it comes to magic, having honed his destruction knowledge down the path of the flame. Alongside this desire to set his enemies ablaze he also is capable of using alteration spells to manipulate objects or protect himself due to his lack of steel or hide to do so, as well as some variances of healing with restoration and alchemy. When low on magicka he has been known to resort to more mundane approach, relying on his fists to fight back the foes that managed to avoid incineration, if not an occasional poisoned dagger.



    Class: Mage

    Subclass: Pyromancer


    Major Skills:

    Destruction

    Alteration

    Restoration

    Hand to Hand


    Other Note-worthy Skills:

    Alchemy

    Enchanting

    Tailoring



    Weapons: This orc carries no weapons for the purpose of combat, as he feels they are more cumbersome than they are useful, however, he does carry a pair of daggers hidden on his person, each ready to be laced with a poison to drop his foes should his magicka reserves fall short.

    Gear: When it comes to attire the orc does not partake of any armored materials, instead cloaking his form in a mixture of cloth and furs, layered meticulously by his own hand to keep himself warm and protected in the bitter cold of the province of Skyrim. He also more often than not carries a fur lined cloak as well, hooded to protect his face from the glare of the sun, bite of the breeze or the eyes of the curious.

    Laterality: Left handed

    History: I tend to leave these blank, as I like to expose his story over time as I develop him, if that is not appropriate for your standards then I shall provide his story, while keeping some details to myself for the sake of keeping him interesting.
