    This guy right here ∆∆∆ is a comedian… Not really. But it’s smirkable (makes one smirk) so you get kudos for that. Anywho can anyone tell me a definite time for the RP currently

    @apexpredator1 The Ring of Hircine wasn’t actually on his finger (though that’d probably the likely spot). It’s fine though, I’ve worked around it while having a ‘One Ring’ moment of sorts.

    @Gladerunner sorry about that. Now you mention it i do remember something about it being on the shield but it just completely slipped my mind when i was writing. I will try to avoid doing that in future. But like if i do something similar feel free to just tell me to change it

    Sorry, everyone. My internet on my laptop shut off and I wasn’t able to respond in the forum. I’ll get it checked tomorrow. In the meantime, I’m still finding a perfect introduction space for my character.

    @Arun-Ja — Try to have less timeskips in your posts. It was chaotic having to have characters follow that process just to keep in the ‘present’. Also… less Mary-Sue / Gary-Stu. Just suddenly being somewhere and never having ‘gotten there’ and doing so whilst remaining completely in secret… and managing to just have Jarrin Root in your possession… :/ It was quite clear that the method of ‘assassination’ wasn’t planned, nor even where you’d find this Nord; but you found him immediately in a public area and just so happened to have one of the most powerful and rare poisons in all Tamriel to ‘kill him secretly’ (which you failed to do by the way).

    Lastly, actions have consequences, and you just murdered someone in plain sight (essentially). Don’t expect to be let off lightly.

    Ummmm @Arun-Ja i get that you are new to roleplaying and stuff but you need to think a LOT more before you post. I understand that everyone likes the idea of their character being a badass and the ‘chosen one’ but you’re character is not the ‘chosen one’ i don’t mean to cause offense but the amount of things he can do is absolutely ridiculous. Just stop trying to impress people with ‘cool’ stuff and just let your character be a normal argonian vampire assassin because that alone is fine

    It was actually a vision of the future sent by Akatosh. Though my character is not the “chosen one”, so to speak, he has seen the events of what will happen in the Elder Scrolls series. He does, of course, place it into his small pocket of Oblivion until the time is right, but it will not be revealed for a long time.

    Yes but that in itself is making him chosen in some way. If he is a vampire and worships sithis. Why would akatosh give him visions of the future. Not to mention it’s just not something that roleplaying characters tend to be like. Like sure have that as like your own little AU (alternate universe) when playing the games but visions of the future and having a pocket realm of oblivion aren’t within the realms of an average Joe. Even being able to read and write in daedric would be out of the hands of average Joe’s unless they have studied it for AGES. And writing in the language of dragons would definitely​ be out of his reach unless he has studied with the greybeards which in all likelihood hasn’t happened since they only train a select few Nord’s whom are then to become greybeards themselves

    Also the time jump really messes with the role play, things like that need to be planned. You going to have to edit, as it doesn’t make sense.

    Haha, oh… I just read the post. Wiping imaginary tears of both bitter joy and depression from my cheeks. I’ll post tomorrow; sorry for such irregularity.

    @Arun-Ja That was quite something. Yeah, in conjunction with my compatriots, my companions, my comrades, my colleagues, my pals (I’ll stop… weird mood)… that needs editing. Alternatively… alternatively just wipe it clean and start over. :D Please, let’s try to keep this RP on track. I know it’s slow going, which makes things worse, but people are either busy or not wholeheartedly invested which does slow things down quite dramatically unfortunately… however, it’s not an excuse to try and ‘spice things up’ with… whatever that was.

    We’ve already got slightly spicy with werewolf attacks, but that was just an unfortunate result of the awkward mess we had with the time of day which resulted in a few VERY slow hours to kill before the coronation starts and we can actually START this RP.

    Anyway, to be franker than I already am, your character needs to be more consistent and CANNOT keep introducing new things about themselves that allow them to skirt around every scenario.

    Name: Arun-Ja

    Gender: Male

    Race: Argonian

    Age: 84, but with the abilities of one half his age.

    Place of birth: Murkmire, Black Marsh

    Home: Shadowfen, Black Marsh

    Religion: Shadowscale

    Profession: Silencer and Shadowscale

    Class: Sorcerer

    Specialization: Magic and assassination

    Attributes: Intelligence, Wisdom

    Birthsign: The Shadow

    Major Skills: Destruction, Sneak, Lore

    Minor Skills: Illusion, Speechcraft, Mysticism

    ——————————————————————————-

    This was your application. Ok, no mention of pockets of Oblivion (which would be extremely powerful Conjuration and Alteration abilities combined), no mention of Dragon Tongue or affinity for Daedric. You’re a Vampire Assassin Mage… and only 84 years old. Just those 3 put together is an entire lifetime’s work, so just piling on the Career Skills is making your character less and less believable, less and less interesting, and more and more likely to be vetoed right into Oblivion (excuse the pun).

    I am, and I image a few others are, quite close to telling you to restart from fresh with either a new character, or a vastly revised version of that one. Please tone it down a bit, and if necessary (me thinks somewhat) read up on a bit more lore to see what ‘connections’ and abilities your character might realistically have.

    Also, try to give some kind of clarification or actual reasoning for your character’s actions, because at the moment he’s been skulking around the middle of the woods like a ninja; then goes and kills someone in a tavern, then suddenly gets a vision from Akatosh about the ENTIRE future of Tamriel up to the Fifth Era. :/ Yes, you somehow managed to tie those first two together with thread-bare… thread, but the last is just random; and the way your character has acted during this process is nothing less than chaotic.

    Where my friends have been pulling their punches, I will not. Yes, you are potentially new to roleplaying; if not you’re definitely new to this site… but we aren’t governed by especially unique rules, and it is fairly universally recognised that what’s going on right here… is not ok. Take the advice, change things, keep it changed, practice with us some more, get used to it, and try not to desire ultimate omnipotence quite so much. Your character is nothing more than a person in a story. They’re not the main character, they’re not the plot driver, they’re not even the nasty villain that dies at the end. ALL OF US are simply characters (albeit with our own goals, desires, intents and life-long quests) that have wound up in the plot, and for some reason or another will end up pursuing it for some potentially realistic or potentially weird reason (mostly because sometimes following the main plot slightly conflicts with our characters’ personalities, because usually they couldn’t care less).

    Anyway, I rambled a little. Try to take this on board without thinking I’m trying to bully you, think of it more as a tug on the ear. I go now, to sleep. I’ll be back to post tomorrow.

    I will try to tone it down. Sorry, but I just really enjoy the Elder Scrolls and wish to include my personal story. But I will keep it simple and plain if you desire. Thank you for the friendly criticism, and I will try to adapt better to the normal standard of roleplay. Arun-Ja is my main character in ESO, so I just did that. Please forgive my mistake, and let us continue in perfection. I’ll rewrite the post in the morning, with a smaller dream of events.
