A Light Most PureBy Infinite on TESO-RP

Rillian knocked an arrow into her maple bow, crouching down silently. The sleight and small bosmer--even for her race's standard--had slipped between a moss-covered stone and a large Oak. Using one foot to pin her body against the stone by the tree, she was lifted two feet off the ground. Orcs were passing, she was outside Orsinium. A group of Orcs were in combat with a "local pest" as they called it in their rough voices as they passed.


Corruption within the DominionBy Inquisitor Vanguard on TESO-RP

Sevario's journey took him through the darkest reaches of Cold Harbor, a man turned Vampire, and monster, his bitter hatred of the world now lead him to one quest to become the icon of all hatred in the world itself.

But no one who simply set on a sordid journey to become hated would indeed be remembered, even Sevario knew, that if he intended to make the world despise him, if his quest to appease Boethiah's champion, and the Daedric Prince was to be successful, he would have to have a strong power base to begin.


Spells & War - Part I / Part II – By Harlwystyr on TESOF

The darkening light of the afternoon had hardly lifted his spirit, but the knight and his thin companion had already ridden with much determination for the last few hours. Besides, the reign of the House of Deleyn hadn't been harsh to the roads.

Halwend Thorne, a knight of no small skill, had travelled the lands of High Rock many times before. He had considered himself an asset during King Ranser's War, and was a respected member of the Cobalt Cloaks for the past six years. 


The Thief, the Liar, and the Dear ReaderBy Patelin JR on TESO-RP

2E 600 Molag Bal has and his puppets have been driven from Nirn by the soulless heroes of the alliances, racial tensions are beginning to die down, but the alliance war is reaching no climax, still no emperor sits on the ruby throne. But who are YOU? Well It's fridas today, you've a had a long week, doing whatever it is you do keep yourself entertained. Everybody has had a long week, the air is slightly chilly, and gently lifting the pigments on your arms.
