    The Archmage started as a novice mage like all mages do. He lives with his family in Cyrodil. They were traders and wwhen he was done with his chores he rarely had anything to do so he decided he was going to learn the arcane arts since he found many books about magic that his parents bought off of caravans. He always loved to read ancient history on the Archmage's of Skyrim. If there was a chance he could play with other kids he didn't want to because they always made fun of him for his love of magic so he just stayed away from them. As he got older he progressed more and more with his magic skills. One day a mage came looking to test his skills against a worthy opponent. When the Archmage heard of this he went to find him and challenged him to a duel and he won. He felt more powerful since he beat his first opponent. Now he knew what he really wanted. Power! He read of a powerful magic orb known as the Eye of Magnus in Skyrim. He told his parents of this and that he wanted to head there to find it. They were upset to see him go but if it was he really wanted than they left him go. This is where your story begins as you are caught on the borders of Skyrim in a skirmish of the rebel storm cloaks and the Imperial Legion.

    Required Questlines:
    Main Questline
    College of Winterhold
    Dark Brotherhood (for an evil playstyle)
    Dawn guard
    You can join the Volkihar Vampires since it will advance your skills in magic and it increases your power as being the Archmage or can join the dawn guard.

    Blessing of Mara
    Sailors Repose
    30% resist magic from Alteration skill tree for Greater Resist Magic

    The playstyle for the Archmage can either be evil or like a regular Archmage. Joining the Darkbrothehood and the Volkihar Vampires is for the evil playstyle purpose for this build if you want to wreak havoc on Tamriel. If you want to be a non-evil Archmage then you can destroy the Dark Brotherhood and join the Dawn guard to destroy the Volkihar Vampires. Now before a fight cast a flesh spell for armor to keep you alive and choose an element of your choice. After the battle if your low on health, heal yourself up because you never know if there's another enemy around the corner.

    I'm new here and this is my first build and I hope all of you guys like it. I put a lot of work into it including his back story and I love to play him.
