A Different Guide to Creating a Character Profile

The Imperial soldiers shifted uncomfortably, their leather armor creaking as they leaned almost imperceptibly closer. Above them, near the top of the hill, the dragon continued with its meal. With each snap of bone, the men felt less and less sure…Continue

I was thinking more along the lines of a Nord who identifies as a High Elf, or an Orc that identifies as a Khajiit.
Comment by ShyGuyWolf on August 22, 2016 at 8:57pm

I think you can have a wood elf act like a Khajiit since there is a breed of Khajiit that looks like them.

Comment by Gollum on August 22, 2016 at 8:49pm
Has anybody tried a trans-racial or racially fluid character?
Comment by Legion on July 30, 2016 at 9:44pm

Decided to go for some throwback features this time - threads whose topics are deserving of some more time in the spotlight. And in case you missed it, we had three new profiles come out this past week, all of which got a feature in Phil's Weekly Roundup thread.

I can honestly say, watching my undead thrall step on a pressure plate to be whapped like a fly from a fly swatter is probably the funniest thing ever. Trying to drag their body over the pressure plate and dropping the body on it isn't. #NecromancerProblems

I'll find one with a smell you'll love. I'll cleanse you all! For the glory of the Aldmeri Dominion!

Comment by Golden Fool on June 19, 2016 at 6:57pm

Thorien, I thought I told you to keep that soap to yourself.

Comment by Justiciar Thorien on June 19, 2016 at 6:50pm

Not going to hug them, gonna bathe themXD They smell of wet dogs and have fleas))

Comment by Legion on June 19, 2016 at 6:46pm

Thinking about hugging a werewolf this week? Check out Blackblood's Roleplay Guide to Lycanthropy to understand the glorious ball of fur that you're sweeping up in your embrace.

Can someone, for the love of god, PLEASE revive the faction roleplay?  It had such great potential, and was a freaking blast! So please someone do something about that.
