    A Thorne In The Lion’s Paw.

    Hearthfire, 2E 583.

    Peace is ever short lived; a brief repose between the spells of conflict, and the bouts of strife. For five fleeting years, there has been a quietude in Tamriel; the people gladly, and willingly oblivious to the presence of a loathsome, villainous few. With the death of Baron Strucier at the hands of the Imperial Empire – at least that was how it was recorded – the Righteous Army of Ysgramor, a name foul and unbefitting of their damnable goal, all but disappeared into the shadows. Baroness Cynthia eluded the Empire, and others whom were tasked with her capture, and continues to do so.

    During such distractions, others have attempted to deal a swift blow at the turned backs of their enemies, though mostly with disappointing outcomes. Others proved more dangerous. The Aldmeri Dominion, believing themselves somewhat responsible, attempts to hide the attempts of said organisation, though with increasing lack of success. The Veiled Heritance, or at least a splinter group, or perhaps another group entirely merely made in homage, have proven quite capable, and quite difficult. Given the Heritance’s origins in the Dominion, Ayrenn has attempted to shield the other provinces from their attacks, as well as avoid the spreading of knowledge regarding them; though doing so without raising suspicion is becoming more dangerous as time passes, and as the Heritance grows more bold in its acts.

    Amidst this hidden chaos, a seemingly unimportant event arises, though with yet untold consequences. Southpoint; a small port town in Southern Valenwood, has found itself under new leadership – Lycidas Blackthorne; the Lord of House Blackthorne, and a Breton of apparent respect in Grahtwood. Though imaginably harmless, the presence of Breton leadership in Valenwood would be an affront to many; though for various reasons yet to be revealed. On the 15th day of Hearthfire, Lycidas Blackthorne’s coronation to become Mayor of Southpoint shall be a public spectacle, as well as a day of judgement.

    The transitory peace is ending, as such supposedly trivial concerns become the burdens of many.

    She’s no caped crusader. And no, Evangeline’s parents didn’t die when she was young.

    Ah, my bad. Must have gotten her mixed up with replaceable deuteragonist number 1 Ysolde.

    Yes… that’s one way to put it. Not my fault Ysolde died (well, it is)… if we ever do an RP during the war again, she’ll make a spectacular comeback.

    Now, because I’ve been in Grad-school hell for the last 5 months, can someone explain to me what on Nirn happened in the RPverse in a succinct fashion. I’m afraid the intro descriptor has left me completely in the dark.

    Only Marvel films I’ve seen are the Iron Man films and the first Avengers. I feel like I’d be missing a lot of salient details.

    Am I right in assuming the location of the RP will be in Southpoint as aside from the beauty of the writing it didn’t give away much in terms of where we are and what we’re doing in the RP

    I am Rellicas Bridene of Leyawiin… That’s who I am sir… I do not claim to be right all the time nor think I am. Merely, My mistress is lady luck… and everyone so often she whispers in my ear what is the right way. That’s how I know what to do… That’s how I know what’s right

    Well, the Imperial City was attacked by terrorists… they tried making us all fight with each other, which worked rather well thanks to OOC strife, and we ‘won’ in the end (sort of). Everyone hates vampires, everyone hates HYDRA, everyone hates everyone else. That’s the RP in a nutshell.

    It didn’t give much away about where we are because we’ll be moving around. It starts in Southpoint, yes. What we’re doing will become obvious by the first major plot point at the beginning of the RP.

    It still needs to be said where we start and under what premise

    That’s included in the first IC post, as well as hinted at in the OOC “On the 15th day of Hearthfire, Lycidas Blackthorne’s coronation to become Mayor of Southpoint shall be a public spectacle, as well as a day of judgement.” 

    Indicates that we’ll be starting in Southpoint on the 15th of Hearthfire, which would be confirmed by the IC.

    No? The OOC is supposed to tell people where its set so that characters can plausibly be there. We dont need hints. We need to know the basics before anything gets started. Perhaps that’s why so many RP’s have failed in the past, not supplying basic knowledge vital for being able to sing from the same sheet.

    The story of the role play starts on the 15th of Hearthfire in Southpoint in Valenwood, but you can start hours, days, even weeks before this date in your first post as you work towards the city if you don’t want to just start in it, but you should have it so you are close, or inside of the city by end of the first post.

    Yeah, but we’re missing the the finer details – which will be in the IC I suppose.

    I have no qualms with lack of information, merely that such a vacuum may cause some ‘unintended liberties’.

    Well, it was actually an unfinished first draft of the OOC… but it was posted ahead of time… :/

    EDIT :: @Gladerunner — Did you miss my post in the last RP mentioning the lady that works to clean the estate when the Montclairs aren’t there? It’s practically her home as well as her job and you just turned it to dust. That poor, poor lady.
