    Yeah...nevermind as me explaining the C0DA David and I worked one would take too long to explain because it is a retelling of the Creation story and there are numerous characters and such to explain so sorry.

     

    Sorry. I just feel that, since C0DA info is harder to get compared to the more "mainstream" lore (which is mostly available at the Library or UESP), it warrants explanation. But don't let that stop you; if you want to headcanon that your characters are related somehow to one another, that's great. And I'm sure that, mysterious maybe-robot or not, you have some marvelous ideas. :)

    No, it is fine and makes sense. We were going to post it but never got around to it. Also, I can't stand "mainstream" lore anymore after doing our C0DA and none of it really connects nor would my incarnation.

    So I am sorry that I won't be able to post one of my own, but I have enjoyed the ones you have posted :)

    I've given the matter serious thought, and after spending a lot of time in many corners of Tamriel, I think I'd like to be a Buoyant Armiger. As far as it goes it's not a bad life to be among Vivec's knights:

    This military order of the Tribunal Temple serves Lord Vivec with dedication and heroic zeal. Oath-bound to emulate the Master of Morrowind's command of the varied arts of personal combat, chivalric courtesy, and subtle verse, these warrior-poets stand as the champions of the Temple and Vivec's personal knights-errant. They take on specific missions when available and wander the land in search of adventure when nothing else requires their intervention.

    I quite like innuendo and bawdy verse:

    "Knight Omayn, fair and pure, came upon some nix-ox spoor,
    Of quantity immense and odor intense,
    Such offal could only have come from something extremely hostile." (lol)

    The ballad goes on to describe how Elynea Omayn encounters her rival and sometimes lover, Ordinator Nisath, also on the trail of the monstrous nix-ox. The two exchange friendly jabs and engage in bawdy innuendos as they make their way into a desolate canyon after tracking the enraged creature's path of destruction.

    "Ordinator Nisath, with a mighty sword and a weapon to match,
    Was eager to add such a terrible beast to his ever-growing catch.
    But Knight Omayn spoke faster, assaulting the creature with a barrage of banter,
    Confusing, inspiring, her wit and words ended the threat and averted disaster."

    Even if they are a little inapproriate at times, their almost-constant cheerfulness in the face of danger has its roots in a very visible source. However we each feel about the Living Gods of Morrowind, they are real and tangible, charismatic and compelling. The truth of how they became deities seems almost irrlevant in the golden age of their existence. The Aedra, distant and ever bending to the beliefs of the world's cultures; and the Daedra, immutable and chaotic; don't hold a candle to the few mortals who have reached beyond themselves and had a vision for something greater.

    Vivec encourages his knights-errant to hunt down and eliminate necromancers, blighted creatures, and the assorted champions of dark forces throughout the land. He expects them to remain true to Vivec's ideals while quoting from the warrior-poet's writings or crafting their own verse as they seek out adventure.

    Whereas the Ordinators stand somber and alert, Vivec's Buoyant Armigers leap and bound enthusiastically as they search for adventure. Gushing with ostentatious bravado and dashing flamboyance, the typical member of the order is valiant, fearless, well-read, and a master of verse and rhythm. They revere Lord Vivec who, in turn, blesses them with preternatural courage and a flare for dramatic performance.

    I like Ayem and Seht, but she's hot, quite scary and capricious while he is enigmatic and quiet, yet Vehk wears his heart on his sleeve. Yeah, I wouldn't mind being a Sword of Vivec for a while. It'd be an exciting and romantic life while it lasted.
