  1. The following is the rough outline for a story I have in mind set in Skyrim, but considering this is an RP with two people I'm open to suggestions.

    okay so, my idea is that I'll play a necromancer holed up in Labyrinthian trying to bring his dead love back to life, then one night a vampire enters the scene.
    I don't really care how they meet/team up, that could be solely depending on the personality and lifestyle of the vampire or on any other multitude of reasons. The point is, they get together.
    For a while they "live" together in Lost Valkygg, in labyrinthian, until the necromancer gives up his pursuit of returning his love in exchange for the pursuit of power and knowledge.

    I always liked the idea of the vampire corrupting him over time, driving him away from his original goal so that he unwittingly serves her ultimate desire. Again, this can be changed depending on how you play the part, for all I know she drives him away because of her lust for him, her desire to see him ultimately suffer, because she finds it funny to see mortals fail, perhaps she does it because she wants him to love her, ... whatever the reason the result is that he now ends up on a different path.

    In time they begin to build up an army in the old city of Bromjunaar; the necromancer finds new and and more efficient to raise the dead adding to his growing legion as well as acquire a following of fellow necromancers who aid him in his quest. While the vampire calls upon her dark brethren and vampiric thralls to bolster the ranks of their ever increasing army even more.
    In time Labyrinthian begins to regain its former glory as necromancers, vampires and other undead begin to turn the old ruin into a bustling city of evil and death. Eventually, when time is right, the undead legion assaults Hjaalmarch, The pale and Whiterun hold taking over Morthal as well as smaller settlements and several forts.

    As both their power and influence in Skyrim grows, the necromancer and the vampire begin to struggle for dominance within their newly created "nation". The reason for this is again depending on the situation, the personality of the two, their backgrounds, etc... the result is a small civil war within Bromjunaar between the vampires and the necromancers, weakening them in the middle of their war against the living. This gives the other holds in Skyrim as well as the legion an opportunity to create a counter offensive slowly driving the undead menace back.

    As the war seems more and more lost, the vampire and necromancer settle their differences and hole up in Labyrinthian. Slowly but surely their once powerful army begins to crumble due to desertion and losses in battle until only the original necromancer and vampire remain to ward off the full force of Skyrim with nothing but their own mustered force of undead and thralls.

    Their opponents eventually break through and despite a heated battle in their own freshly created throne room, they both die at the hands of the empire, their dreams, goals and lust for power dying with them.
  2. I'd love to partake in this with you, Caligari!
  3. I'm sorry, but someone else already got the part. If you want we can always create another storyline to play.
  4. Dang it! Haha, well, that's to bad.

    I wouldn't mind creating another~
  5. Very well, do you have any preferences? Any factions you wish to focus on?
    I personally would prefer it if we kept it as Skyrim related as possible in terms of age considering I'm most familiar with that timeframe.
  6. I'm fine with keeping it the Skyrim time table. As for guilds - my favorite in Skyrim was the Dark Brotherhood, so I'd love focusing around that.
  7. Hmmm... Ok, I have a little idea; how does an rp sound where two assassins from the dark brotherhood constantly work together in the taking out of targets all over Skyrim. Kind of like a medieval buddy-cop RP, only with assassins and murder.
    As far as major plot points go, we could simply start off somewhere and see where it goes depending on our characters. certain events happen with Skyrim's dark brotherhood anyway so we could easily integrate them into our RP.
  8. That's a good way to start out. Just sorta follow the events of Skyrim's Dark Brotherhood to begin with and the story changes due to our characters choices.

    Should our characters know each other before the Brotherhood, or have just known each other through it? Also, would they be well into the guild? I think it'd be fun to play through waking up in an abandoned house, forced to kill at least one person.
  9. Hey, if you want to wake up in the abandoned shack, that's fine by me. My character can then be the one who initiates the trial. Do you want the listener to be part of the RP? I personally like the idea of our characters constantly missing the listener by either constantly leaving before he/she arrives or arriving right after he/she leaves.
  10. Ohhh, that's a nice touch. Always just missing the Dragonborn is a great idea. I'm excited for this .
  11. Ok, well, I'll send you a short character sheet, you send me one back and we can begin.
