((You guys are too kind xD. Way back when, most RPs were like this, unfortunately the players that put in the effort to play at this standard mostly left, one by one. There are still RPs like this that come around every so often, however.
Btw, its true that I'll be following DrNight out if he finds 'greener pastures' so to speak, but I'll still be lurking around this board if a gem of an RP comes up. Right now though, activity from me is probably going to be a bit of a luxury for a couple of weeks or so.
Remember to give credit to Hugthezombies, he originally made this thread, but I'll summarise that later.
I expect this will probably be the last IC post for Milos before I post an epilogue and credits, etc. DrNight, Milos is probably going to stick with M'nari in the rest of her quest so I'm thinking that you should do your epilogue before mine so I don't collude with whatever you were planning.))
The ambient noise of ancient dwemer machinery stuttered to a halt as the platform reached its destination. Milos could see very little in the room they emerged into, save for the faint glow of some of the rocks. Milos used some magic to create a candlelight spell and revealed the area around him. The glowing light hovered above their heads and in front of them was something that immediately caught Milos' eye, as if the whole space was revolving around it.
A large book.
Milos just looked at it for a moment. Without altering his gaze, he asked M'nari "Is that what we're looking for?"
[Sorry about not posting much lately. But with all the talk of it's possible death, and Annika basically being on a rampage, I haven't really been sure what to do. If Annika can serve any further purpose in the RP, let me know. :3 And, sorry, again, for the inactivity.]
((We will do! Actually, I am planning exclusive intro RP, that would be the first RP that we set up in the new forums, like PoW that by the delegation that came from Sporum.))
"Oh god, at last." M'nari stated, staring at the book. Exactly, this is what they do need. She feels that. M'nari slowly walked towards the book and picked it up, feeling strange. Her heart started beating faster, the mind became slower.
The book was named "Dwarf: For and against". It was 40 paged essay by some strange necromancer about the dwarves (strangely, that necromancer desrcibed them as short strudy creatures, misunderstanding dwarves with gnomes. Real dwarves are more elvish!)
But the best part was the fact that the book dissolved after M'nari opened it. The darkness started creeping towards the unexpecting group, finally taking all over them...
...They all woke up near the entrance to the ruins, feeling very tired and scared, but inspired and intrigued at the same time.
A creepy void was floating before M'nari, who woke up before everyone else. She already had conversation about the weapon and ways of saving her own soul from being devoired. After Milos woke up, M'nari already finished talking, looked over Milos and smiled.
"Well, to the College. I know how to enchant a sword to make it great. Mora already gave me instructions on enchanting weapons against daedric princes and creating portals to oblivion. Hah, he also warned me that if I would use it for any other purpose instead of trying to kill Vile, he would annahilate me. Heh."
The thunderstorm would arrive soon. For normal people this usually means that something bad is about to happen.
For electrical arch-mage this means something radically different. M'nari was feeling great.
((Feokris, we're just about finished, but you can make an epilogue for Annika if you wish!))
Milos got up after the dazing, otherworldly force carried them all to the entrance of the bloodbath of the dwemer ruin.
His adventure continued with M'nari right up until J'zargo was freed forever and Vile was delivered his late justice. Along the way, he got to know Annika better and befriended the strange Dragon-Human shapeshifter, Chris.
When the deed was finally done, Milos felt the weight of responsibility lift dramatically from his shoulders. Milos wasn't without spoils after his quest and was beset by something he never would have thought to feel before: Complete and utter freedom. Milos spent much time traveling to each corner of Skyrim, taking in all of the cultures and vistas. Unfortunately, the war between the Legion and the Rebellion heated up and Milos had to emigrate.
He returned, eventually, to Wayrest. Home at last. His siblings had grown further and his family in general were living much better than they had when he left. Milos opened his forge again and wrought more passion into his work than anything before. He would never forget his experiences with his friends in Skyrim, not to mention the hardships they endured and the joy they shared...
...Ere, his adventure ends for now.
((If anyone wants to have journeyed with Milos during the last of his travels in this epilogue then you can mention it in yours :smile.gif: ))
((This is where we end folks! Its good to see an RP actually finish honourably rather than dieing from neglect and it was a pleasure to have you guys to make it all possible, so thank you everyone!
Special thanks go to the mods, Feokris, Moarwork and DrNight for carrying some of the weight for me. And especially to Hugthezombies, for the original thread, idea and GM duty.
We've seen this RP go through thick and thin and, even though not everything was completely finished, we had a bloody good run. Most importantly, however, it was fun.
See you next time, guys!
P.s. Don't forget to post your character's epilogue.))
((Yes. 'Twas a pleasure to roleplay with you all. I felt the new Malen had to die along with the Borealis, what with all she's been through, I thought if she survived it would feel like I was neglecting her.
If anyone is making a new one, post a link, I'll probably join, for now though, I'm trying to work up the time to make a new one based on Mount and Blade: Warband, I can only hope it'll have as much success as this one.
Thank you Muttonhawk for leading us through the roleplay, you've been good. Thanks to Hugthezombies for his contribution (namely the roleplay itself), and thank you to the moderators too.
Annika stuck with Milos, M'nari, and Chris until the day M'nari was able to save her friends soul from Clavicus Vile. Along the way, she had heard about the ship Tore was on having been lost at sea, and felt a pain in her heart, but, in the end, was happy. He got to die doing what he loved.
Once her adventure ended, Annika returned to her aunt in Rorikstead, and gave her the news about Tore. She didn't take the news too well, but eventually got past it, with Annika's help. As the years went on, Annika wandered around Skyrim, and eventually met a man, who was a member of the circle of the companions, whom she ended up having a son with. They spent the rest of their lives together, growing old, and watching their son set out on adventures of his own. Her husband died in his sixties, and Annika herself died seven years later, on her 62nd birthday.
Her legacy lives on with her son, who uses her bow, which has seen so many fights, and been through so much. He now lives in Falkreath, as it's newest Jarl.
[And... That's it for Annika. Loved RPing with all you guys. ^-^ Keep in touch!! And let me know if you ever make another RP anywhere else. I would love to RP with you guys again. :3]
Going through everything like that is hard for sanity.
M'nari was guided by Herasmeus Mora towards victory. She enchanted the sword to be able to kill any Daedric Prince forever. She managed to open a short living portal to Oblivion and entered it.
Short fight was held, and M'nari didn't kill Clavicus Vile. This doesn't mean that she has lost to him: the soul of J'zargo was set free, and M'nari escaped the Oblivion...
...She set off towards her new home. She has got lots of jobs to do...
...Finally, M'nari has found a good chance to find a lonely place and she finally settled in a cave, turning it into a decent home and a well equipped labaratory. Hundreds of years passed and she never left it. The expirements with devilish nature and greater purpose were held inside...
M'nari was able to return the soul of J'zargo (and probably lots of other people) back to this world. She was able to left her own body and to travell in the world of mortals, to gather the information and to return without consequences. Infinite lifespan allowed her to become the wisest creature in the world and one day someone might find her and she would tell him her secrets...
