    Hello from Scotland!

    I just joined today and have over 2000 hours in Skyrim on PC. It's the best game I've ever played and with the modding community the game is better than ever. I don't think I could ever go back to vanilla. I've restarted the game so many times and despite all those ingame hours I still haven't completed Dragonborn or sided with the Dawnguard. I aim to rectify that with my current game

    I'm currently doing a roleplay in the game but I don't video it. It's just a story I write and if people want to read what I've done I'm willing to share it. I've did the background story and have an ending mapped out. Now just playing the the game to get to the ending I want.

    So Hi!

    Hello everyone! Ophelia here, it's my first day on The Vault and I'm excited to be apart of this great community.  I started with Skyrim but I've also played Oblivion (not to big on Fallout, sorry!)

    Hullo Ophelia. I'm fairly new here too. I've also played Oblivion but Skyrim is the best game I've ever played. And as much as I enjoy Fallout 4 I do prefer the raw combat of games like Skyrim.

    Welcome to the Vault...

    I started with skyrim about two years ago and fell in love with the series. I found this website a year ago when searching Dunmer law but only just got the guts to sign up :D. I really like your archives but I couldn't find anything on the morag tong... Could you guys add some info on them I think there band of assassins is really cool and is essential to the Dunmers history. So yeah awesome website hope it continues to prosper.

    Welcome, Blu Fish!

    Glad to see another Dunmer fan on the Site. As for your question, you should probably ask around the Lore group. They've been making quite a few Lore articles lately, so a Morag Tong article might not be far off.

    Hi guys I have a question how do I make my own content? Also could I do it on anything (Lore, Character Builds etc.) and were would it end up?

    Sorry for all the questions but I'm new here and don't know how everything works :D

    Hi Blu Fish. Yes, I'm currently doing a role play of my story. Check out the Caerwyn Moonshade series I'm currently writing. The beginning story is in 4 parts, I've published 3 so far as I like a good cliffhanger. Once the beginning is finished being posted I'll start to post more of her adventures, when the story really starts moving along

    Hi Guys, I've followed this website for a while now popping in every now and then to see whats up. But I have decided to do my part in this community and begin posting to the forums.

    I first became interested in TES way back when Morrowind was the game that was latest out. He played it on his PC and before you knew it I had bought it and began playing it on my PC at a very young age (We're talking 10-11 years old). I would play every now and then and enjoyed playing but didn't really put too much time into the game itself. But after the release of TES IV: OBLIVION I always loved the games and put a lot of time into them making specific characters to fit certain rolls and playing the games in so many different ways that I had a view of every aspect of the games.

    I will be working on character builds to start off with so keep an eye out for them!

    Thanks a lot guys!

    Welcome to the site, Scout!

    Before posting any Character Builds you might want to take a look at The Workshop, where you can post a WiP (Writing in Progress) Character Build and get some advice from fellow site members.

    Just saw this post and thought I could bring my pre-written message, regarding character building with links to all kinds of useful stuff ofc :).

    First of all you have to read and understand the Character Building Group Rules. There is everything listed that you need in your build to post it (successfuly) into the building group.
    You should also read the Guide to Characterbuilding. Additionaly, you can take inspiration from other builds.
    I recommend putting the build into the workshop while you're working on it. To start a new discussion there go to the Workshop and scroll down until you see a button called "Add discussion".
    It is important that you title your work properly, like this:
    WiP Characterbuild: ???
    Your build must have a gameplay section, so people know how to play it, and a perkspread. Read through some of the builds, if you're having trouble.

    You can create your perkspread here and put the link into your build (you can also ask in the Art Goup Services Request Tread for a perkspread with picture). If you need any help with gameplay, -mechanics or something else, you can ask in the Character Building Help Desk or in the Tipps & Tricks Group , respectively.

    Don't worry about asking so many questions, Blu Fish. We were all new here once upon a time.

    Now, to your questions:

    Somewhere towards the middle of a group's front page you should be able to see a list of other discussions. At the bottom-left of this list there'll be an option to "Add a Discussion" with a small "+" sign next to it. When you click on that, it'll take you to the "Add a Discussion" page.

    From there simply type in what you want in the text box, and give the discussion a name. Just below all the text boxes there'll be an option to "Add Discussion" (Right next to "Preview"and Cancel)

    Discussion posted in a particular group will only show up in that group. For example, if you post a discussion in the Lore group, it'll only ever show up in the Lore group.

    Hope this helps!

    That should take you to my ToC (Table of Contents) where I'll be posting more chapters when I get time. I'll probably add some pics later on too as the story progresses...

    Greetings, I am Grendel_Lives! I first discovered this site while looking for a way to recreate some of the classes from Oblivion in Skyrim. I not only found what I was looking for, but I also discovered my new favorite hobby: character building. This site showed me all the different ways you could craft a character in Skyrim, and it's now something I do in other TES games and even other RPGs, like Dragon Age and the Witcher. I originally visited this site as a lurker to look at builds, but recently I decided to interact with the community and maybe even create some of my own builds as well. Thanks for reading!

    Welcome to the group Grendal. I would say how the site works but you seem to know more about it than me. Looking forward to see the builds you make :D
