    Well, with very little info on this amazing group, sans that they were formed by Tiber Septim, and you could only be inducted by the Emperor/Empress him/herself, or by a high ranking offical, most of what I have is from an Oblivion mod, Servant of the Dawn. I present....




    The Order of the Dragon, founded two thousand years ago by Emperor Tiber Septim, quartered in the Dragon Temple, nestled high in the Jerall Mountains. You were one of the youngest members of the Order to reach the rank of Imperator, second only to a Champion of Cyrodill. You and your Order were tasked by the Champion of Cyrodill, and High Chancellor Ocato, to stamp out the remnants of the Mythic Dawn, stopping a plot to overthrow the Chancellor by a former member of your Order. 200 years later, The Order of the Dragon still wages war with the Thalmor, the true threat to the Empire. You were the son of a minor Lord of Northpoint, and a popular and wealthy Merchant Lady of Daggerfall. When you were young, your family's carriage was raided by brigands. You were saved by a member of the Order, and a group of guards. You were taken in by the Order, and trained from that day forward, reaching the rank of Imperator, Third to the Champion, after much work stealing information from possible criminals. You were tasked by Emperor Mede in aiding General Tullius to end the Civil War, and made your way to Skyrim.....


    Race: Breton. The resistance to magicka helps when dealing with dragons and rogue mages/Vampires. Though Dunmer work for more fire resistance, the Order accepts all.

    Standing Stone: The Lord, extra magic resistance and a nice boost to damage resistance. When you get the Aetherial Crown, place the Atronach Stone within. With Dragonskin, you get 100% Absorption of Magicka, excellent with dragons and mages

     Stat Placement: 4/2/2 in Magicka, Health, and Stamina. Magicka is the main priority

     Major Skills: One Handed, Block, Heavy Armor, Smithing

     Minor Skills: Enchanting, Restoration, and Speech. 

     Weapons: Silver Sword, Fire spells

     Armor: General Tullius' Armor, Boots, and Gauntlets, Closed Imperial Helm/Aetherial Crown, Blade’s Shield.


    The Order of the Imperial Dragon is an absolute, fire-spewing, machine. He emulates the Dovah of old with his spells and his Thu’Um. Wrapped in a Cloak of Flames, he advances, a blade in one hand, and a shield or spell in the other. His main priority is taking out ranged enemies, by immolating them with a barrage of flames.

    Firing off Flame spells at melee enemies from afar, he equips a shield when they are close, hacking away at their remaining health. When a room is cleared, he takes time to bolster his allies’ abilities, and heal. When necessary, equip the Aetherial Crown and activate Dragonskin to absorb all magicka thrown at you.

    With facing enemies resistant to fire spells, such as Dunmer, as ShinJin brought up, my strategy was a simple one. After bashing the Dunmer/dragon to stop their attack, I would fire away spells at them, then hack them to bits with the pointy end of my sword. Followers with ranged abilities, such as Faendel and Serana, also help when a dragon is flying or hovering about. Hiding behind a tree works wonders against breath attacks.

    In order for an initiate to become a full member of the Order, they must stand in a special chamber in the Dragon Temple. The current head of the Order, or a high ranking member, and a member of Dragon Warrior, or higher, present. The one orchestrating the ceremony would pour Dragon Blood (Blisterwort+Blue Mountain Flower+Wheat), into a chalice, and the intiate(s) would drink, and be in agonizing pain as they witnessed visions of the history of the Order, the Dragon War, and most of all, their Dragon spirit, that would bond with them and enhance their abilities.

    Pious and Undercover-Never go about in your armor, you may use the Dragonsword, and a flame spell, but that is all. Never wear your armor in sacred places, like temples, Halls of the Dead, or High Hrothgar.


    The Dragon Shows no Mercy to the Merciless-The Order is devoted to justice. Slay any lawbreakers, like Grelod. 

     (And All-Maker Stone Powers)

    It's pretty good but the Firey text is really difficult to read. 

    Other then that there just isn't that much information here and I think you should expand on the Lore, Background and Roleplay a little. By the way I like the Special Moves they're interesting enough.

    When you submitted the Order of the Dragon I did a bit of reading to see what to expect... good choice. I agree with DB about the special moves. They fit the build quite well. Out of curiosity, did you do anything special against enemies that resist fire (Dunmer and various dragons) or just rely on your weapons and high health? One suggestion:there seem to be a lot of double (maybe triple) spaces. Perhaps if you cut some of the negative space it might connect the build and flow a little more smoothly.

    Thanks Shin, Anyhoof, yeah, that, and I also used the aid of my followers, like Faendel (who I'm still traveling with)

    My only problem is the pickpocketing - It's way too out of character.

    Well, I didn't want to join Ulfric Racistcloak, so, it was either that, or pickpocket Tullius. In my head canon, he became a spy for the Order, stealing encoded messages and whatnot

    I thought the fire logo would work for a very "hot" character
