    So, the character that you play the most, what is his/her build? Personally, I have an argonian warrior (gotta love that histskin for warriors) with light dragonscale armor that hit the armor cap, and a daedric sword and shield. What's your build?

    The character I play the most is an Imperial Battle-mage wielding a mace (Molog Bol) and flames. She wears a combo of Daedric and Dark Brotherhood Armor.

    I use an Argonian Archer. He's a vampire (lord, obviously). He's a cannibal and a Necromancer. He kills someone with his bow, eats part of them, and then raises their body to fight for him! Ritual Stone definitely helps. I'm working on a very detailed build that I'll be uploading soon enough.

    My main build is a summoner berserker hybrid that uses heavy armor, a two handed sword, and summons ranks of atronachs to do his bidding.  

    I use ebony mail with daedric boots, gloves, and helmet its a little bit of a weird look but I like it and it suits the build as being a mix of a mage and a warrior.  

    My weapon is a daedric greatsword enchanted with Fire and drain health its damage with the bonuses from my two handed enchanted armor is so high that in combination with the enchantments it will destroy most enemies in a few power attacks on master.  

    I usually summon two permanent flame atronachs to act as my ranged attacks because not only do they deal enormous damage but they fit the general theme of flames. 

    What do you guys think?

    I suppose my main is this: Nord named Brinja wearing an eclectic mix of highly enchanted armor and twin skyforge steel swords with dual enchantments each. One is called Burning Souls and the other is called Mage's Bain. Love my swords.

    She's retired at level 59 though.

    You have Dawnguard, I'm guessing. Lucky. I got a PS3, no Dawnguard for me yet. Anyway, your build looks great, do you use Histskin a lot? Looking forward to seeing this build posted.

    Yeah, I don't get it. Was he a vampire before DG came out? What was your main guy/gal before DG came out?

    This is Tygravius Boximir. Dark Elf/Dunmer whose only 100pt max is in sneak, archery and light armor. He's basically an assasin/thief. Well over 300hrs on this bad boy. The most by far compared to other characters. This picture is from way back when we did a "Skyrim Blog Group" photo. We non-PC players had to take a picture of our screen. lol

    He eats a sweet roll every morning before venturing off.....

    Artemis who is an assassin, I would say she's pretty close to Ponty's Striker( tho I made Artemis before I knew of this). She's retired at level 40. Also Remas who is a pure warrior, also retired at level 38. I may make two new characters as tributes to these two, as they are still probably my favorite :)

    The helmet is what the reach men wear. This is what it looks like on a female. On the male, it looks like a skinned animal head with bones to prop it away from the face.

    I was always a vampire, but I cured myself before DG to get the Lord Ability. Same build as always.

    My Paladin, Elnieros. He was my first character, and I retired him at level 50. I've been playing on him a little recently, trying out some of the new quest mods.

    Is that the Dawnbreaker I spot? Or just a random sword?

    I suppose it would be my Female Nord Heavy Archer. Level 37ish, Ancient Nord Armour with Kyne's Token, Ebony Bow, Ebony War Axe. Little bit of restoration magic for healing. She's leader of the companions, thane of Whiterun, Markarth, Falkreath and Solitude. I wanted a character which stayed a bit squishy, hence sticking with Ancient Nord Armour instead of upgrading to something else. I also avoided putting points into any of the crafting perks. Most fun character I've ever played. Having your defense a bit low forces you to think more tactically instead of just storming in with Daedric everything. She'll probably be my first Dawnguard character as well.

    Might try and get a picture in a bit if I remember, seeing as how some of you have pics of yours.

    I play a Vampire Breton that has lived for over 230 years. I had this character for a long time, but he was not my first.  I use my vampire build that I posted in character building. super fun to play.

    Well at the moment after experimentingwith all types of characters ive settled fora pure mage build. High Elf, most character points into magica, mages robes, fortify magica ring and necklace...pretty much endless magica!! Plus a 60% resist magica i think too. It was tough at mid levels 15-30 but eventually once theperks kick in its a great build for conflict!!

    I play most with my Sneak-Warrior. You can see him in my avatar, he is level 38 now.

    Its kinda some kind of family tree. My first charecter for Morrowind and Oblivion was John Hedgeborg

    And this one is Ronald Hedgeborg. I always play as a Nord.

    My main, named Sonya, is a barbarian style warrioress. She's wielding a Skyforge Greatsword by default and wears Light armour, Leather, Fur or at the moment Vampire stuff. In case of a strong caster she switches to a combo of a Skyforge sword and Spellbreaker. No magic tricks are use by her against opponents ("Wielding magic? That's for pussies") only uses it for healing and apply stoneskins. Sonya is quite a good marksman too with a bow as well as a crossbow. Her open combat style do cause unpleasant surprises sometimes but she refuses to sneak around like a rogue (Sneaking? Pfff. *turns up her nose*)
