I enjoy roleplaying, although I've never really done it in gaming sites. Therefore, I figured I might as well test the waters here with a Skyrim roleplay. Since this is my first time roleplaying on this site, please correct me if I'm breaking any rules.

This will take place in the entirety of Skyrim, in the same time period as the games. Civil war is brewing, about to erupt into a struggle that may rip the country apart. For the sake of simplicity, and to prevent godmodding and -snicker- cheesewizzing, there will be no Alduin or Dragonborns. Instead, we'll say that dragons have always been around, some acting as town protectors in exchange for tribute, others as vicious destroyers, and yet others as simple recluses, staying in Skyrim's wilds away from people. The Thalmor, of course, are alive and well as well, causing havoc in Skyrim.

Guidelines and Rules
1. If you're basing your character off a game character, that's fine! You just can't show up in Daedric armor and summon Odahviing. Keep it lower-key.
2. Likewise, you can't take out an entire bandit nest by yourself. We're regular mortals here, not Dragonborns.
3. Conflict and plots are AWESOME. Be an Imperial soldiers, be a Stormcloak, be a Thalmor, be an Assassin, whatever. Butt heads. Get into fights. Make friends. Make enemies. Make it interesting.
4. Multiple characters are fine.
5. When you post, make sure you include your character's location as well. This ensures that people won't get confused as to where everyone is.
6. Try and stay together. If everyone is spread out, nobody can interact.
7. (OOC should be in parentheses.)
8. Grammar and spelling is a must. Post length is not extremely important, so long as you are descriptive and let everyone know what your character is seeing, doing, thinking, and feeling.
9. If you have ideas for the story, by all means, post them!
10. ABSOLUTELY NO CHARACTER KILLING WITHOUT EXPLICIT PERMISSION.
11. Let's keep it clean. Keep the gore to a minimum and don't have your characters do anything that would be considered 18+.

Application Form (Delete anything in parentheses):
Username:
Character Name:
[spoiler]Gender:
Race: (No demigods and the like, but Vampires and Werewolves are fine.)
Age: (Most characters should be adults, although I may allow one or two children.)
Appearance: (A Skyrim screenshot is fine, and so is a text description.)
Personality: (This could also include how your character fights, which is optional.)
History: (Optional. I'm the sort of weirdo who likes to make up a backstory for their characters, I know not everyone does this.)
Faction: (Unaligned, Stormcloaks, Legion, etc.)
Other: (Anything else I should know?)[/spoiler]

Good list of rules. One I suggest you add though, is no taking over control of another participant's character(s) without the person's consent. This includes no killing them out of the blue out of spite or no real reason. Helps stop roleplays from degenerating into flame wars.

Also, no explicit sexual content. Not everyone on the site is eighteen or older, after all.

Edit: Putting in the new form for ya.

[;P my first time RPing on a game site too, this should be a fun experience]
Username:Bloodtrailkiller
Character Name: Pylys Paer
Gender: M
Race: Wood Elf
Age: 27

Appearance: Though being a Wood Elf, he wasn't raised in their territory: instead brought to the icy peaks of Skyrim, this turned his skin color from a usual tan to a relatively pale tone: with hints of a faint red on his cheeks and nose. His hair mimics the snow in the mountains with its brilliant white, his bangs are wrapped to the side of his face in a braid that is brought up and around his left ear. Despite his young age, he already adorns several scars, most notably one going down from his left eye down to his mouth and another running parallel, but opposite: running from his lip up to his eye. He sports a streamlined face, his nose-bridge scarcely a bump in his brow: his brows are wild with the outer-edges peaking upwards, they're the same color as his hair. His eyes are a feral yellow that seem to glow, though it is hardly noticeable. His body reflects a slacked and carefree man, though his face betrays him through a permanent sneer due to his scars. His body has obviously been pushed due to his harsh home, it too, bearing scars that tell of many stories. With that in mind, he has a very strong, toned, but light build. He fashions himself with a leather cuirass that utilizes a plated feature[a pectoral leather piece with two leather pieces covering his abdomen so as to allow mobility with a simple silken shirt with flared cuffs beneath it, and a chain-mail shirt is beneath that. His trousers are simple leather leggings which have brass buttons cross crossing his side, furred boots protect his calf and foot from both weather and weapon due to a solid steel plate that covers the front of the calf while leather jackets the entirety. He stands at an intimidating 6'1/2" and a solid black wolf-fur cloak on his back only makes him look ever more deathly, a hood made of the same fur can be pulled up to cover his head.

Personality: Collected, Calm, Quiet, He fight's with a mocking freedom, his style obviously showing self-teaching that has been toned to a deathly dance.
History: I'm one of those people who like to have people find out about histories ;3
Faction: Unaligned
Other:He sports various bags that hang on a belt around his waist, this is often deposited when selling or in a fight. He fight's with a handcrafted steel bastard sword: its blade is coated in silver and he usually wields it in two hands, though he does use it in one hand when he gains momentum. He has a bow that uses a double-arm action, it's made of wood with elegant carving and uses arrows made of simple iron. He has a pet North-wolf/white wolf he named "Fenris"[/spoiler]

Character Name: Pakir

Pronounced: Pah-Keer

Gender: Male

Race: Altemer/Dunmer Vampire (Mixed heritage if that's ok, if not then just Altemer)

Age: 23

Appearance: Skin is slightly darker than basic Altemer, blood red/crimson eyes, long snow white hair (messy shoulder length)

Personality: Pakir is innitially polite, but is only formal to people he agrees to serve. Pakir is loyal, but indecissive with a group. He'll follow orders from a competant leader (even if he grumbles about it....), and he'll try to help keep everyone safe (casualties are acceptable, but there'll be hell to pay for the killer...).

History: Pakir is half Altemer and half Dunmer. His father was an agent of the Thalmor who deserted them. He met a lovely young Dunmer and eventually they had Pakir. He inherited his father's skin tone and many of his features but kept his mother's red eyes and white hair. He lived comfortably but was always curious about his father's history. He was finally able to wear him down and Pakir learned about the Thalmor from his father's perspective. He grew up disliking them and when he learned what they were doing in Skyrim, he swore he'd see the end of them. His father couldn't bring himself to disaprove of his son's decission and eventually taught Pakir how to fight light a justicar. When he turned 18, Pakir was ready to leave home. His Father gave him the equipment he'd worn as a justicar. A set of armored hooded robes, a fire enchanted elven sword named Cinder Quill, and a copper amulet shaped like the plume of a phoenix. Pakir stripped the robes of any symbols marking them as those of the Thalmor and began his adventure.

Faction: Against Thalmor and Stormcloaks (Will work with Stormcloaks against the Thalmor but for nothing else)

Other:Equipment
Elven blade with lower medium Fire enchantment
Armored robes (just below the defense of elven)
Cusioned Shoes (better for sneaking)
Can use Fire Spells up to Fireball

(OOC, I'm not sure where we're starrting, but Pakir will be in the closest tavern.)
