Forum Feature: Lycanthropy vs Vampirism

Today's forum feature is another debate of sorts, seeing as they've been so popular around here recently. 

So the question posed by The Muffin Warrior is: What do you prefer, Lycanthropy or Vampirism? The question is left very open so please feel free to answer it with justifications of role play, lore and game play mechanics. 

I'm personally I fan of playing as a werewolf.

U.O.T.W. Chapter 3 Sentenced to death

The path itself was narrow and winding as it snaked its way up the mountainside. A chill in the breeze blew down the mountain which made Sotek shudder slightly. The cold climate of Skyrim didn’t suit Argonians which left Sotek silently wishing he had better armor on than the shirt he was wearing. Still he had bigger concerns to worry about soon enough. The trouble was though his concerns were closer than he had realized. A lot closer in fact. Trouble brandishing keen eyes,…

"I don't know why you even keep trying, Sven. Camilla's mine, I tell you!"

The Legend of the Card Master

by Stallord

Published 4E 607 50 years after it was written

The man known as Twisted Fate is a character known only from legends and these legends paint him in a much better light then he should be in, this is his true story. Twisted Fate was born in high rock and he was always viewed as a freak, you see unlike most bretons he was unable to use magic and he spent his entire childhood wanting to be a mage but never could. After Twisted Fate turned 21 he had both a title…

Ruminations In The Tower

RUMINATIONS IN THE TOWER

by Sulis Nithryon



"The arbitrary and the motivated in regarding one's divine ancestors: ignoring a manifest concern for belief in them as us, instead we concern ourselves with intensity and its relationship with action, valorizing ‘little narratives’ and proliferation of narratives in our native cultures to the point that there is no perch from extraneous content. Pure subjectivity is no longer possible;…

Of Blood and Fire: Chapter 7: Dead fire, Dried blood: part 2: "Bitter, Not Sweet."

"Well, I can tell you with certainty that when the Dragonborn died, he wasn't a vampire." 

Styrr, Solitude's priest of Arkay, said as he leaned over the body. The Dragonborn's corpse lay in bed in a guest room. Others were in the room. Captain Aldis and a couple of guards were there, as well as the priests from the temple, Falk Forebeard was there also. Elisif sat in a chair in the corner, drying her eyes that were swollen and bloodshot.



"How can you tell?" Aldis asked,…

Workshop Success Story: The Kinetic

For today's Workshop Success Story Albino thought he'd choose the Kinetic by Halifax. Here's what he to say on it:

In my opinion, the Kinetic is the first quality project to come out of the Workshop, so I thought it'd be fitting to choose it for my first Workshop Success Story feature. To the best of my knowledge, it's the first build to really explore the…

Of Blood and Fire: Chapter 7: Dead fire, Dried blood: part 1: "Don't cry"

Thunder boomed, and rain poured down over Solitude. This was the second day rain fell in the dead of winter. Jarl Elisif was at her bedroom window. She rested her elbows on the window sill, and watched beads of water roll down the glass. The wind was blowing harshly, and it rattled the shutters.



There was a knock. The Jarl answered the door, and a servant girl came with more wood for the fire.



"That is all, thank you. You may go." The servant girl bowed, and said, "You…

Oath of Friendship: Miraak(Ch.1 Pt.1)

"It is when you stop learning that you begin growing old." Among the thousands of words carved onto the mossy ceiling of the confining room he was resting in, those were the first that caught his attention, as he opened his green eyes for the first time in eons. He was struck with amnesia, confused about who he was and why he was there. Time passed; he did not move, he did…
