    Would love to do this... But I can't take decent pictures with this garbage iPad camera...

    Same, all the pics I take are fuzzy and unrecognizable.

    Here are all of my main characters over the past two years.  I've played many more, but these are the ones that I either got to the highest level on, or was the most attached to.

    Amanda - Imperial Assassin / Thief

    My second character, and the first one that actually completed all of the major questlines in the base game.  Retired prior to Dawnguard.

    Sofia - Breton Pure Mage (Destruction)

    My third character, and still my favourite overall. She was a simple mage with a focus on Destruction and abusing the Impact perk.  Also my richest character, with almost 1,000,000 gold without cheating.

    Gaius - Breton Paladin

    Based loosely on Ponty's Paladin build.  I never really connected with this character, and retired him fairly early in his adventure.  My first male character that got past level 10.

    Freyja - Nord Light Armor Paladin

    I decided to do a light armor variation on the Paladin theme, after realizing that light armor looks better, and that I didn't really need the defense since I had a shield.  Still active, but haven't played her in a while.  She's currently chilling in the Soul Cairn.

    Sylvia - High Elf Enchantress

    Based loosely off the Sorcerer build.  She uses light armor, and focuses on Destruction magic delivered through enchanted weapons, augmented by Illusion.  Still active, but haven't played in a while.  Currently having lunch with the Falmer in Blackreach.

    Sarah - Nord Dark Knight

    All-around badass, focused on obtaining Daedric Artifacts.  She's actually sort of a Paladin of Molag Bal like the legendary build of the same name.  Retired (overpowered and dull).

    Frost - Nord Barbarian

    Standard two-handed warrior with light armor.  Also focuses on ice magics and archery with Auriel's Bow.  Never got very far with her, but I really loved the purple makeup and white hair look.  Plan to restart her one day, and maybe take her in a different direction.

    Fiona - Orc Warrior

    My attempt at making an attractive Orc.  I think she actually turned out pretty good, for an Orc. Retired.  Currently enjoying the company of the Dawnguard.

    Gwenhwyfar - Breton Paladin

    I started running out of inspiration for character faces.  This character is based on a real-life friend who is one of the kindest and most caring people I have ever met.  Seemed only fitting to make her a Paladin.

    Kaitlyn - Breton Warrior

    My second character based off real-life friends.  The person she is based on is one of the tiniest girls I've ever met.  I thought it would be amusing to have her carry around giant two-handed weapons.

    Tonja - Breton Thief / Archer

    The last of my characters based on real-life friends.  This character has questionable morals, and is a bit of a cheat, much like the person she is based off of.

    The Gourmet - Orc Chef / Enchanter

    The character used for my only build on the site.  I tried to make him look both handsome and somewhat innocent.  More of a city Orc who is used to a life of luxury rather than a life in the strongholds.

    Baroness Loredas - Redguard Necromancer / Warrior

    My current character, that may turn into a build.  The look for this character was inspired by Baron Samedi.  The goal was to make her look as much like a skeleton as I could.

    Hey thanks for the help with the edit zimbu. And by the way your characters look awesome. I'll be sure to take pictures from my tv screen when I'm done and unpacked.

    The only shot left of my most favorite character ever - Bosmer healer Velarien. Her playthrough was the hardest and most rewarding for me - no kills, no crime, no perks, no followers/summons and learning only the spells found in random loot. I finished Thieves Guild and College of Winterold questlines with her, a lot of side quests and she was the only one to set foot on the ashy soil of Solstheim. The playstyle was to lure enemy to the friendly NPCs/creatures like giants or guards and heal them while they do the fighting for me. She only carried one weapon - Kahvozein's Fang found in Volskygge, used for cutting webbing in caves without alerting denizens.

    How did you kill Mercer or Morokei or Ancano? Aren't they all in situations where there are no helpers available or all followers/help is incapacitated? Mercer distracts Brynjolf and Karliah, Morokei is on his own with no enemies near save the wizards you have to defeat to free him, and Ancano paralyses all around you. Sounds like a fun build though, I've always wanted to play a pacifist. :)

    You don;t have to defeat wizards to free him, you can alert them and they all come down looking for you. I weakened Morokei with Bound Bow and casted Nightingale Subterfuge on the wizards. They made short work of him. 

    Ancano is cheap easy - just use the staff of magnus on the Eye and the anomalies take care of him for you.

    Mercer Frey - two ways, one hard, one easy. The hard one is to run him on the rock in the water (it falls from the ceiling). Takes quite some time but its definitely possible. Easy way, the one I did, was to Fus Ro Dah him from the top of the statue. Gravity damage doesn't count as kill in stats

    I like this picture. It's just so serene and epic.
