The beggar said my name is Namira, He was baffled by the name and asked namira if he could be her apprentice, namira said no but he still begged.
He begged for endless days and nights until he was granted apprenticeship under namira, namira gave him the power of pity, so that anyone would toss a coin at the poor sod just by looking at him.

Gameplay:This is the part i had the most fun creating, so you combine these sneak perks and pickpocketing perks:Muffled Movement,Silent Roll,Light Fingers,Night Thief,Cut Purse. You can get a large amount of gold in a matter of minutes.
Using the one-handed perks combined with the sneak is perfect for taking out nuisances like bandits. Now i'm to going to present you with a combat situation, The Beggar Prince encounters a fort full of forsworn. He cautiously approaches them, using the invisibility spell.
Takes out one but the others get alerted he uses the invisibility spell again to hide in the shadows and proceeds to rapidly take out four forsworn.
He ran out of magicka and was confronted with a orc forsworn armed with a steel battleaxe, he dodge the power attack from the orc and then used the shadow warrior perk to escape outside. He entered the fort again, and proceeded to kill the orc.

  • I assume we can do away with the old version of this build? No sense having duplicate discussions. 

    This version is definitely an improvement over the last with the inclusion of gameplay mechanics. So good job on that.

    A picture or two would help improve presentation.

    It would also help to include how many levels of perks like armsman, sneak, and agile defender you took. Also include the total level your build once all perks are take . 

    For enchantments you should list what enchantment is being paired with what enchantment. Example boots -> muffle enchantment. 

    EDIT; It looks like you went ahead and deleted the old discussion already, which I guess is fine. For future reference you can edit existing discussions you've started anytime you want.
