Tamriel Vault 2016 Recap: Social Engine!

  • January 2

    Hmm. Let's see. I'm a relatively new member who joined mid-July, so my account (and subsequently all of my work) was never transferred over to the new site and I had to make a new one. I suppose you could say that all of my work in the Tamriel Vault thus far has been on Social Engine.

     

    That amounts to a total of eighteen chapters in my ongoing series, 'Roaring Thunder, Hissing Lightning', posted over a period of four months in the Story Corner, with the last chapter of the third arc completed and released on the twentieth of December. I also spent almost half a month working on a lore guide for RTHL and posted it at the very end of the month.

     

    That's... really all I've managed. Certainly nothing as expansive as what some of my seniors here have gotten up to.

    That's quite the feat for someone who joined in the last five months!!! :D Congratulations! :D

    This got to be the best community ever. Lots of hard work and creativity from everyone. I'm glad I'm a part of it :)

     

    My first post after the move was the re-post of my character profile for Glaenriel Greenleaf, The Exiled Jaqspur

    After that came finally the character build of the same character: The Jaqspur

    End of October I was selected as host for the RP group together with Zonnon!

    Beginning November I posted my first RP Guide: The Ranger which started as a WiP in the Workshop.

    The first post for the RP group together with Zonnon was our 'The A-Z of Backstories', which was well received but activity fluctuated. Please check it out :P

    Following the A-Z of Backstories came two spotlights, the A-Z Recommendation of two members that posted interesting stories: A-Z Recommendation: Blooded and A-Z Recommendation: Ronny Philange. Sadly we don't have a lot of contributions to do these spotlights regularly so please feel free to add content to it. Of course, all these posts were in collaboration with my co-host Zonnon, credits to him, too. We still have some awesome things planned to release but because of the school/Holidays/stress we got thrown a bit behind but new stuff is coming soon.

    Even if I was a bit more active in the RP group I still invested time into my favorite group, Character Building, with my latest addition, The Ghostwalker.

    To be honest I never posted that much content in 3 months hahaha

    I did a bit of writing but mostly I've been making use of the PS4's screenshot and video capabilities. These are things I've been without for almost a decade, so I'm quite enjoying them even in their stripped back forms. I probably wrote a few poems here and there too but I can't really remember.

    From Lore I have written a short, biased piece on Kyne and Y'ffre.

    A collab between Liege and I led to The Nuances of Dibella, notable for an examination into the oft-mentioned but never fleshed out relationship between Dibby and Julianos.

    Another colllab was posted, this one called Roleplaying: The Morag Tong and Dark Brotherhood.

    A profile was completed. Profile: Ranmir

    Did a... thing... for DB's Mod Review Event: Event Review: Man Those Borders! Plus Others

    Posted a few poems: Storm's Tears, Skyrim, Dance of the Thundernach, Long Winter and Radiance Lost

    Also a couple of blogs: Fragment on Kyne and Fragment on Stendarr.

    Hi, I just joined in 2016 when the new site open so my activity was quite modest... but I'm still a little bit proud of what I've produced :

     

    - My first build ever The Broken One was kind of a draft and a first experience in Character building, it was in my own opinion nothing special and a little bit clumsy, but I was glad some people here came to give their piece of mind, advise and comments.

    - My second build, a contribution for the Against Type Event, I'm a little bit more proud of... Le Magicien, featuring the greatest fraud mage of Skyrim was a great project to work on and a lot of fun in which I've learn a lot more about character building (also about grammar & spellcheck) and hope I have made a good account for myself.

     

    I also liked to thank everybody here for their nice spirit and kindness and wish everyone a great year 2017 !

    I’ve been pretty busy since the site move, even spreading my wings a little and posting in some other groups besides Skyrim CB. Lissette already mentioned this in her post a few days ago but her and I took the reins of Skyrim CB when the site moved, forming the great Varg’Ette. Quick recap of what we’ve been doing as hosts of the groups.

    Project Restoration: I really can’t take any credit here but I must make mention of the great efforts of these members as they tirelessly toil away restoring all our old content, some 1400 builds! It’s a mammoth task and they deserve our sincere gratitude.

    Character Build Against Type: Our first event as hosts, and one that inspired some great new builds.

    Builders Discuss: Inspired by the TSC’s series called Writers Discuss, this is a relatively new series that Liss and I started. The purpose is to get members thinking and sharing about their build process and execution. We started with some broad categories but plan on getting into the nitty gritty soon with more focused discussions.

    Now for my own personal content that I’ve added since the site move.

    Skyrim Character Builds:

    The Electromancer: A magic focused build in the same vein as my previous Pyromancer and Cryomancer builds only this time I focused on the final element of destruction, Lightning.

    The Druids of Galen: This was a huge build for me and one that I worked on for a very long time it even spawned a Faction Build detailed below. As you may have guessed this is a druid based build that utilizes a wide range of skills and abilities in an attempt to replicate classic druid powers.

    Rito’rishaj’iit: My entry for the Against Type event was a martial arts inspired monk character that utilized “blue magic” or “rito’rishaj” to replicate enemy attacks.

    Roleplaying:

    Faction Build the Druids of Galen: As previously mentioned this is the faction that grew from the character build of the same name.

    The Story Corner:

    I also tried my hand at some creative writing with a short story inspired by my Medium character build called “Threshold”, which I just barely got in before the year end.

    As of right now we have a few things planned for 2017 in the CB but I don’t have anything personally planned. For the first time since joining the site I’m not working on a build. Though I may push out a few more short stories as I enjoyed writing Threshold and I think I will start fleshing out more of my builds in the same way. Wish me luck.
