An Introduction: The "The Lords of X" games are sort of a tradition here at HoL. In these games, we try as best we can to create and play a character that has something in common with our forum avatar, name or personality, (within the fiction of the game of course). We then play that character in a pre-defined setting (Arcanum, Fallout, Skyrim) or in a setting of our own (TLo: Sol, The Return of a Lord). For example, DE has previously played (can you guess?) dark elves. Grossenschwamm has played giant lizards (or other big, green monsters). I've played as cows. Skyrim This time, our story will take place in the land of Skyrim. Skyrim is the northernmost province of the Tamrielic Empire in the Elder Scrolls universe. It is a land of ice, steel and blood. For more info on the setting, check out Bethesdas wiki on the subject or play the game. Speaking of which; we will borrow most (if not all) of our lore and setting from the PC game. Our story will take place one year before the Dragonborn is taken to Helgen fort. The High King Toreg has just been slain by Jarl Ulfric Stormcloak, marking the beginning of the Stormcloak rebellion against the Empire. According to the lastest news, the famous General Tullius has been assigned to quench the uprising and is currently on his way north from Cyrodiil. People all over Skyrim are divided and worried about the future. War is brewing in the north. Your characters can come from any walk of life and from wherever you please in Tamriel. The characters should be spectacular but not overly powerful. You can be famous, infamous or completely unknown. All of this is at your discretion. You can both sign up for the game and post your character in this thread. All OOC talk will be limited to this thread as usual.
