    The Basics of Roleplaying

    Hello My Hatchlings Dragon here with the first article of the group. After much deliberation I figured that I should start from the beginning and examine what exactly is roleplay, and the basics of every roleplay from beginning to end. While most of these...

    Profile: Walks-In-Darkness - Redone

    Normally, I'd simply update the original profile for changes to my characters, but a lot of changes have been made recently to the point this can be considered an entirely different character. The only reason I'm keeping the name is because I've used...

    Profile: Gwynara

    The term 'witch' to me brings to mind the image of a woman who is forced to live on the edges of society. Many of the people within said society would still come to her for cures. However as soon as the plague breaks out she is the first to be burned at t...

    How do you play an "evil" character?

    I have had a really interesting idea for a character build, but I always stumble shortly after starting my Skyrim playthrough.
    Background (limited): My character is egotistical (boastful), narcissistic (loves self), and conceited (superior).  T...

    The Interrogation of Farkas

    An Interview with Valilenya Elsinaan

    This interview I had with Tenebrous and his character, Valilienya Elsinaan, is a slight departure from previous projects in that it's very meta-game. I'll let Tenebrous explain :D

    This page is more of a personal reminder of my ever changing character, hopefully it'll function as an anchor as well so I don't stray too far off the idea. Don't be surprised if the information below changes a lot, though.

    This is my original version of the "Walks-In-Darkness family tree" consisting of Walks-In-Darkness and Hunts-The-Night. Like them, this character will change but likely the least of all, as he has existed for the longest and his story is ti...
