Greetings, citizens of Tamriel!
First of all, I need to thank @crazyman193 for their thread of a very similar nature. This not only was the thread that inspired me to make this one, but also the one that reminded me of the purpose we all download these mods for these games… to play them!
An an aspect of playing an action-RPG like Skyrim is to roleplay! Though, as crazyman’s post has proven, you can roleplay in Starbound, but you can also roleplay in Minecraft, with pen and paper, on Discord, or… in the bedroom. Skyrim wouldn’t need to be an RPG in order for you to roleplay in it, it just has some things that help facilitate it over other games, so because I hope that this thread will itself facilitate some really good replies!
This thread is a little different than crazyman’s, though. I wanted to broaden the scope a tad bit so that more people could be included.
Normally, screenshots and videos are something that’s highly popular within Skyrim as you can mod it to look quite pretty, but when my character has a dumptruck so large a hip-check could kill Karstaag, I obviously can’t post that on r/Skyrim, so I wanted to give a place for peoples’ pretty fat screenshots!
- Just as with crazyman’s post, descriptions and/or screenshots of your character.
- Your roleplaying dramatized with prose, or just written dryly. It’s your story, tell it to us how you like!
- A Screen-Archer is just a fancy way to say someone who likes taking pretty screenshots in Skyrim, and sometimes you might not have a whole lot of a “story” to put to them as with the first two bullet points. There are a few stipulations though:
- Do not spam individual posts with only one screenshot. Post them in-bulk if all you’re posting is screenshots with no story attached.
- Be courteous to others scrolling through the thread. If you’re posting many screenshots, please hide them in a Details Block.
- Requests for mine, or others’ modlists. For myself a lot of it is heavily customized, and honestly quite complex to set up (and I don’t feel like writing a tutorial). If you want specific mods DM the poster instead of asking in this thread to preserve it’s tidiness.
- General discussion about Skyrim that doesn’t fall under the purview of roleplaying in Skyrim, or questions & comments about people’s characters.
