Character Building Event: Crossworlds 3… IT’S BACK!!

Tags: #Crossworlds3 
  • November 29, 2017

    Those of you who’ve been around for a while will remember the very popular Crossworlds events and how they were “supposed” to be an annual event. Well 2016 was a bit of a crap storm and the event just didn’t make it in however we’re bringing it back!

    First let’s cover what a Crossworlds build is in case you’ve forgotten or you’re new around here. Crossworlds builds take a character/class/faction from outside the Elder Scrolls universe and translate them into something that fits within the game world of Skyrim. This doesn’t necessarily have to be another fantasy universe it could be Sci-fi or even real world inspirations. The real key to a successful Crossworlds build is the translating of the character into Skyrim, what I like to call “Skyrimizing”. That means no falling through portals and ending up in Tamriel shenanigans, use your imaginations and make your character a part of Nirn. Below are some examples of past entries to give you an idea of what this event is all about.

    The Aberrant Blade


    The Minstrel of the Moon

    The Small One

    There is one other requirement; you cannot directly reference the inspiration of the character in your build, except for the art and closing notes where you may reveal your source of inspiration. Think of it as a little “in build” game where we all know this is a Crosswolds build and we are trying to guess what the inspiration is.

    Registration for the Event starts right now and the event will end 12/31/17 at midnight EST

    Please use the Event: Crossworlds3 tag for your WIP’s and final builds.

    Other than that all the standard Skyrim CB rules apply so go read them!

    And happy building!

    Oh man... love the crossworlds events! Things are a bit busy for me this time of year, but what the heck--count me in as well. I've actually put to rest a build that was inspired by the Clint Eastwood spaghetti western movies, The Man with No Name, over the summer, so I'm ready to try my hand at another out-of TES-inspired build ;D

    A couple quick questions: Are there any minimum or maximum level requirements for this? Also, like past Crossworlds events, do you want us to let you know our inspiration source when we sign up?

    I don't really know what I want to do for this, but I think I'll draw from classic Hollywood cinema again.

    Glad to hear it Duvain, ShinJin, and DeltaFox, I look forward to seeing what you guys come up with. 

    To your question Shin, which ever you prefer, if you want to announce your inspiration here they you can if you want to keep it a secret until you post the build then you can do that as well.

    And min/max level requirements? And can they be a group of smaller builds. 

  • November 29, 2017

    No minimum or maximum level though reason should guide you but it also depends on the character so whatever you feel completes the character.  And yes it can be a group of smaller builds ;P

    Sounds good. I'll probably announce it as soon as I figure out what I want to do. Look for it by tomorrow ;D
