The Crimson Razor - An Epic Dark RP Guild (ESO)

4056780027?profile=RESIZE_710x

It's been almost too long since our last front page feature, and you can likely blame my ongoing battle with ESO addiction for that. But while we're on the topic of ESO, I would very much like to introduce you all to an RP guild that has quite literally revolutionized my ESO experience. 

They call themselves the Crimson Razor, and they are among the longest running, most successful roleplaying guilds in the entire PC NA server. 

The Crimson Razor involves an ongoing roleplaying story set in the Elder Scrolls Universe, with most roleplaying revolving around the Elder Scrolls Online game where the majority of the guild's activity occurs. Much like The Sky Forge community, members of the Crimson Razor take immense pride in writing characters and stories, and most importantly supporting others who wish to do the same. Should you happen to join the guild your character(s) will find themselves immersed in an epic overarching storyline vastly larger than any one character.

The guild places a heavy emphasis on character driven stories and development. Each character is free to make their own choices, and have their own stories to tell. In fact, its best think of the Crimson Razor as a giant fantasy book where all the players come together to add a few more chapters to the story. It is not a single author writing the book, but rather many. The book is being written in real time, with characters evolving throughout the story. The very core of the Razor is that it is a place for people to have a venue to practice their writing, or to find joy in the creation of stories with other people. However, there is a general theme to the guild.

The Crimson Razor is a dark RP guild with cult-like themes and intense scenes, which means there is quite a bit of mature content. The Crimson Razor embraces creative freedom, but still adheres to laws and rules meant to ensure an enjoyable experience for everyone, and that no person’s writing harms nor damages that of another. At a minimum the guild requires its members to adhere to Elder Scrolls lore and respect the work of their fellow writers. Many hands work together to write this grand story, and thus no one character is more important than another. 

This is a guild for writers and roleplayers of all levels who take joy in the craft. Perhaps the guild's greatest offersing is an entire community of creative individuals working among supportive peers to hone their writing skills. So, whether you've been roleplaying for years or have never even heard of the concept til you read this post, the guild welcomes you. 

If you're still undecided, then take it from me, a man with neither a shred of writing talent nor roleplaying experience, that I've enjoyed every minute of my time in the Crimson Razor. 

For those interested, joining the is simple. The links below will take you to the guild's Discord server and website. There you'll be warmly welcomed and asked to fill out a simple application briefly describing your character. Once that's done a guild officer will conduct a very brief in-character interview, then you're in!

Hey everyone, welcome to another Character Build Showcase. 

After turning up the heat with Ponty’s Mabigrash, I decided to cool off the week with a Build that truly deserves to be seen. Tae-Rai’s The Ice Demon!

830845208?profile=RESIZE_710x

They were finally here; they had finally found the grave of the Kamal King. Buried in a tiny grave deep in the mountains of Eastmarch, this Akaviri warlord had sacked Windhelm before attempting to take Mournhold in Morrowind. He had been slain by a Dunmer legion, assisted by Argonian Battlemages, and his remains were brought back here to be guarded by the Nords and to ward off any Kamal that dared to return.

Keeping it simple, while creating both an outstanding aesthetic and skill set, Tae-Rai recreates a warlord back for vengeance - even if it kills him. Even going to the point of using his enemies corpses to fight alongside him, none can escape the chilling rage of Ada’Soom Dir-Kamal.

The Roleplay section is fairly broad as not much is known about this dreaded warlord. However, Tae-Rai has made a ‘quest’ once you’ve completed your play through. As they say, vengeance is a dish best served cold...

The Second Sacking of Windhelm

That wraps up this week’s Character Build Showcase. Keep an eye out for next week’s - it can be from any of our Character Building Groups, From Fallout to Skyrim and even the Classics. 

Who knows, it might be your build on the front page of the Sky Forge.

Character Build Showcase - The Mabrigash by Ponty

3672101364?profile=RESIZE_710xHail adventuerers! We welcome you yet again to the weekly Character Build Showcase, where we pull out a Skyrim build from here on the Forge that really deserves some more love and interest. 

In the spirit of the contest that launched not long ago on the Forge (click here for more information) in which builders used to using the fun and unique gameplay mechanics brought to Skyrim by its talented modding community will be challenged to go back to the basics of building when the game launched on the famous date, the 11th of November, 2011, we will be highlighting a vanilla build this week. A classic dating back to before the creation of the Skyforge itself, and having just recently made its way here to the Forge, Pontybrings you the Mabrigash

A reclusive tribe of Ashlanders famous for the powerful connections with both serpentine and pyrotechnic magicks, the Mabrigash Tribe have produced some formidable warriors, but none more so than this rogue Wise Woman of their tribe. 

 By secret rituals the Mabrigash steals a man's vital essence and makes herself a powerful sorceress and warrior. The manifestation of her dark power is called a ghost snake that paralyzes and drains a victim's vitality.

An incredibly versetile build that plays as a heavy pyromancer with hints of illusion and alteration, the Mabrigash Wise Woman uses an interesting exploit from the vanilla game that allows her to deal massive amounts of fire damage in a very short period of time, all the while using her other tricks to incapacitate her enemies, that they may do nothing against the tide of flames she will unleash upon them. 

Be sure to check out the build and, as always, hit it up with a like, and be sure to give the combat demo Ponty has provided a watch. I can't recommend this build enough, and we still have a ton of other characters to highlight for you in future weeks forged by talented builders. Keep on forging, and yours could be next!

Introducing the Uutak Mythos

3805809094?profile=RESIZE_710xI'd like to introduce you all something new and exciting in lieu of our weekly Skyrim Build Showcase, and so with the help of my new friend IceFireWarden, I'd like to formally invite you all to become a part of the Uutak Mythos community!

But what is the Uutak Mythos?

Glad you asked! The Uutak Mythos is a collection of articles, texts, art pieces, and lorebooks written by some the most creative minds within TES community. They seek to breath life into an obscure facet of TES lore concerning the island of Yneslea and its inhabitants, a bat-like beast-folk known as the Echmer. 

The Uutak discord serveris nearly 200 members strong and always eager to welcome new artists, writers, creative minds, and everyone in between to join them. The community strives to one day gain official acknowledgement from Bethesda, and so far they've come close with numerous nods and references througout the years. Consider contributing to this fine community as an excellent opportunity to grow and develop your creative talents, whatever they may be, and perhaps one day have your work featured in official Elder Scrolls canon. Contributor or not the community always appreciates newcommers. 

So come one and all and be a part of the mythos. But do mind the drop... it's been known to break those of lesser worth.

Hey everyone, welcome to the final Character Build Showcase for 2019! Last time, I covered Pale Mane by Marin the Fox, from our very own Skyrim CB Group. 

Today, I wanted to shed light on an Event that was hosted roughly this time last year. The Sky Forge’s Secret Santa, where members would submit ideas for a build around the holiday theme and whoever was chosen from said submitters would create that build.

A certain Build from said Event truly captures not only Christmas but New Years and onwards. Created by Pixel, called the Ghost of New Life, which also has a backstory from our Story Corner.

3795207137?profile=RESIZE_710x

Even in death, a second chance is never impossible. Some call him the Ghost of the New Life Festival, for he is seen often in the snowy months at the end of the year when all of Tamriel celebrates the coming new year. Though a horrid miser and humbug in life, in death he was redeemed. 

Focusing around Enai’s mods (as well as others) Pixel created a Build who not only has multiple play styles but different stages and seamlessly incorporates it all together. As well as the Roleplay which evolves with every ‘stage’, and still using those RP points in later stages so to speak. 

Ghost of New Life is unique build who changes with each stage, both Gameplay wise (Healer/Supporter -> Damage -> Illusionist/Assassin) who uses tactics from past stages and Roleplay wise. Definitely check it out guys! 

His soul, restless on Tamriel after his passing, sought a path to Aetherius. And now, his Ghost wanders the face of Tamriel to bring retribution to those who act with selfishness and greed in the hope of earning his place in the heavens, and prevent others from facing the same consequences.

Well, we’ve come a long way, don’t you think? Stay tuned for 2020 for goodies such as more Showcases, Contests and much more.

Happy holidays, everyone!

Character Build Showcase: The Arcane Assassin

MVz55Uo.jpg

Hey guys, we're back once again with another Character Build Showcase! This week's featured build is The Arcane Assassin by Ponty. As always I'd like to start out with an excerpt from the author themselves to give you an idea of what this build is all about. 

After the Oblivion Crisis, many mages throughout Tamriel sought out ways to better harness the powers of Oblivion for good. They re-created an ancient Snow Elf combat style, seamlessly blending use of spells, Bound weapons, and protective spells which is still seen in the Falmer today. This overarching combat style was applied to create 3 new classes of fighter - the Arcane Bladesman, wielding a bound sword and specializing in destructive spells, the Arcane Assassin, using a bound dagger and specializing in Illusion magic, and the Arcane Marksman, using a bound bow with unrivaled skill.

The Arcane Assassin is a deadly and unpredictable adversary. Her wide arsenal of spells allows her to effectively eliminate targets in the open just as easily as she can from the shadows. Of course, as an assassin archetype the Arcane Assassin is at her best when striking down targets unseen and unheard, and each school of magick she has mastered augments her ability to do just that. Through Illusion she can vanish at will or set her enemies against each other. Alteration allows the assassin to sense the presence of her enemies in total darkness and even beyond walls. Finally, Destruction magic enables her to lay deadly explosive traps or lay waste to her foes with a volley of arcane fire.

Ponty's cleverly incorporates many schools of magic to create arguably one of the most versatile and powerful assassin builds the community has to offer. But perhaps the most attractive feature of this build is that you, the player, can enjoy this build without ever having to craft a thing ever. 

And with that we shall wrap up this showcase. As always, I encourage you to give this build a try and don’t forget to leave a like and/or comment on the build if you enjoy it. 

Keep building friends! Because you never know which build we'll feature next, and it might just be yours!

Character Build Showcase: The Pale Mane

Hey everyone, welcome to another Character Build Showcase. Last time, I covered Long ChapperLovelorn Dragonborn’, from our very on Skyrim CB Group. This time, however, I want to focus on a ‘first time’ Build by our very own, called the Pale Mane by Marin the Fox.

2843562496?profile=RESIZE_710x

These humans think themselves so superior to this one, no? This one yearns for the chance to show them the face of their arrogance, the face of the Pale Mane. They will learn.

I genuinely can not recommend the Pale Mane enough. Marin delivers a truly unique rogue-like character experience, with a multitude of options for deities to worship throughout different points in the game. But what truly sets the Pale Mane apart is the complete lack of investment into any direct damage skill trees. Marin takes a more creative route with Alchemy providing the build the means to effectively dispatch foes, along side a multitude of additional tactics to include explosive skooma bottles provided by the Wintersun mod. 

Kynareth guides this one. Mephala watches this one. Baan Dar instructs this one. Sithis hides this one. We are shadow incarnate, and if we set our sights upon you, there is no escape from our cold embrace.

Keep an eye out for next week’s, Character Build Showcase. It could come from the Skyrim Character Build Group, maybe the Fallout or Classics Group or even the Misc. Gaming.

Till next time, guys!

Hey everyone, welcome to another Character Build Showcase. Last time, I covered Paraxedes ’The Phoenix’. This time, however, I want to focus on a particular Build by our very own Long Chapper, called the Lovelorn Dragonborn.

3761972089?profile=RESIZE_710x

This one saw him from a distance, across the tundra that blossomed in rolling clouds of white cotton tufts and lavender stalks, and all the troubles of the past day flew from the mind like a comet flies through the jeweled twin-mooned sky.  Like wisps from the moon sugar pipe catching the breeze from the caravan tents. The shackles, the cart ride, the black, winged beast that made this one wish desperately to crawl back inside mother's womb and hide forever. He was like a god of bronze to this humble Khajiit, beautiful and proud, black hair with eyes of starlit silver. His armor shone in the waning light of Magrus and a great sword of unspeakable size and strength was surely held in his hand…

Without a doubt in my mind, I can’t recommend the Lovelorn Dragonborn enough. Long Chapper gives us two ‘paths’, a beautiful yet simple RP focusing on the Bronze God while keeping it at just Level 5! Don’t forget the tongue-in-cheek comments from ‘Mr Buttons’ as well as a few other goodies.

Keep an eye out for next week’s, Character Build Showcase. It could come from the Skyrim Character Build Group, maybe the Fallout or Classics Group or even the Misc. Gaming.

Till next time!

The Victors Have Been Chosen!

3716294445?profile=RESIZE_710x

Bloodlines have been judged, and after much deliberation the judges have determined the winners of the Bloodlines Character Building Contest. This was a contest filled with a multitude of quality submissions and it was a tough call for the judges. But a grand winner has been chosen and coming in at 1st place is The Chimera by Erinoth

Erinoth amazed the contest judges with an absolutely wonderful build presentation and brilliant incorporation of Reachmen lore into his build. It's clear Erinoth went the extra mile to produce quite possibly one of the best werewolf builds the community has ever seen. Take a look at what the judges had to say:

"Absolutely wonderful job, and not just for a first build. This is top tier. You clearly went above and beyond, especially with the artwork and visual design."

"You’ve clearly gone the extra mile here with your images and formatting. Everything is well set out and flows brilliantly."

"Strongly written backstory. The artwork is lovely, fitting with the aesthetic of the build..."

Its hard to believe that this is only Erinoth's first ever skyrim build. He came out of nowhere, and not five minutes into joining the commnity jumped into the contest, and came out ahead in a contest filled with talented character builders. He's just one build in and already it's clear he's set a very high bar for himself. I think I speak for many when I say I'm looking forward to what he produces in the future. 

 

 

3716458557?profile=RESIZE_710x

Coming in right behind the Chimera and placing 2nd is The Blood & Moonlight by Kendrix Trixie. Anyone who knows Kendrix is already more than familiar with the quality she puts forth in everything she does. So its not surprising that for the second time Kendrix has placed in the top three in the contests, which is no small feat. For this contest Kendrix dared to try something entirely new with her submission and created two builds, a werewolf and a vampire, meant to be played simultaneously. Kendrix has been known to craft memorable characters you just cant help but fall in love with, and the supernatural duo of Blood and Moonlight are no different. Here is a sampling of what the judges had to say:

 "I confess, I was looking forward to seeing another build of yours after how much I liked reading the last contest entry of yours, and this holds up just as well in this category"

"As you said yourself the roleplay is the star of the show here. The motives and morality of the characters both individually and together are well established and made for a very entertaining read"

"I like the idea of a two-in-one that isn’t just a “paths build”, and also where the two styles are meant to actually be played together in a mod that may actually allow that to happen."

Kendrix has done a wonderul job of integrating elements of her build's short story into the gameplay. Her characters couldnt be more different. The reclusive, blood magic wielding nightblade presents a stark contrast to her carefree and headstrong companion, but the inseparable pair compliment each other well both in ability and personality. In a contest filled with blood thirsty lycanthropes and power hungry vampies, Kendrix's build stands out among the pack with its endearing tale of an unlikely friendship born of a shared desire to survive.

 

3716468791?profile=RESIZE_710xComing in at 3rd place is the Sanguine Protector by JustJam. Just like Kendrix, JustJam has quickly established a strong reputation for quality Skyrim builds. As the first build submitted early into this contest, the Sanguine Protector set quite a standard for the other contenders. Jam combined unlikely archetypes and uncommon roleplay together to create possibly one of the most unique vampire builds I've read in a long time. 

Here's what the judge's had to say:

"The “benevolent vampire” is a fun and often under-represented archetype, and you’ve brought a pretty good take of it. It’s easy to just say that the sheer nature of being a vampire that hunts other vampires makes for an interesting enough character, but that is a disservice to the potential subtlety of this archetype. Your character is more compelling because of the recurring theme of the “greater good” being used to justify harming innocents -- this is a fun and twisted sort of ethics that works in a very ironic sense for a vampire"

"Like I mentioned in my comment I’m a big fan of the unconventional vampire roleplay you’ve got set up. The character growth around how they become more disciplined and overcome their vampiric nature certainly made things more believable."

The Sanguine Protector cleverly combines assets from the Ordinator and Sacrosanct overhaul mods to create an unconventional stealthy vampiric shield mage playstyle possessing a multitude of tools to destroy her enemies. Jam has done a remarkable job creating a fun, fast paced, and versatile build, but where the build truly shines is its roleplay. Playing as a benevolent vampire who struggles to fight for the greater good while controlling her hunger is an unexpected but welcome departure from the typical evil vampire build. 

And there you have it folks, the winners of the Bloodlines Character Building Contest. Take a moment to say congrats to the winners and let them know what you think of their builds. If you missed the chance to take part in this contest dont sweat it, we have many more contests planned for the future! 

Check out our contest thread to read the full break down of the judge's decisions and scores for the contest.

Character Build Showcase; The Phoenix

3666957967?profile=RESIZE_710x

Hey everyone, welcome to another Character Build Showcase. Last week, Chris covered RajunCajun’s John Wick, from the Fallout Group. This week, I’ve decided to focus on the Skyrim Character Build Group, focusing on Paraxede’s The Phoenix. Here’s an excerpt to show you what it’s about;

It is been a long time now that i wished to publish this build. The idea to have a character built around the theme of the Phoenix was appealing for 3 years after i discovered the Forgotten Magic Redone mod. The ability "Phoenix Strike" was amazing and it took me a minute to think about some kind of mythical elite elven warrior (elven armors and helmets use Eagle as symbol which is linked to Auri-El and Summerset Isles sigils), charging into the fury of battle with a greatsword and fire spells.

I highly encourage you to check it out Paraxedes delivers a great backstory involving the Thalmor but with a nice change as well as keeping the spellsword concept in mind, even creating some brilliant RP and Gameplay synergy with Ordinator.

Keep an eye out for next week's Character Build Showcase. It could come from the Skyrim Character Build Group, maybe the Fallout or Classics Group or even the Misc. Gaming.

Till next time!

OK, that ain't working, so instead, lemme focus on the nitty gritty. Combining best boy Dogmeat, Ballistic Weaved suits, and silenced weapons to swiftly dispatch foes, while also trying to emulate John's close ranged Center Axis Relock style of combat. Check it out

Character Build Showcase - The Shaper

3648360515?profile=RESIZE_710xHey guys, we're back again with another Character Build Showcase! In the spirit of our current Skyrim Character Build Contest we have a featured build that truly demonstrates the potential and synergy of werewolf form. This week's featured build is The Shaper by Ponty. As always I'd like to start out with an excerpt from the author themselves to give an idea of what this build is all about. 

The Shaper is a powerful magicka user, able to cast a wide variety of spells, as well as take on a fearsome beast form. In humanoid form, he is able to shape the energies of fire, frost and lightning to destroy his foes in all manner of grisly deaths, and summon a full variety of daedra from Oblivion to assist him. He can also mould the minds of others to his will to take control of any situation, and even heal the wounds of himself and others. A powerful mage for sure - but that's not all. When the situation calls for it, the Shaper can transition into a terrifying werewolf form, making him tougher and stronger, wreaking havoc across an already-chaotic battlefield.

A chief complaint of werewolf builds, and vampire lord builds for that matter, is the feeling of having one's own abilities and powers pushed aside in favor of those offered by their monstrous transformation. But such is not the case with the Shaper, a build that combines the terrifying versatility of a master wizard with the equally terrifyng brutality of a werewolf. 

Ponty's use of werewolf form is simple yet brilliant. As powerful as a mage can be they are still hampered by a multitude of weaknesses - archers, aggressive melee fighters, or simply exhausting their supply of magicka to name a few. The werewolf form exists not to override and replace the mage but rather cover his weaknesses by being everything the mage cannot be in human form. The end result is a mage who has an answer for every situation imaginable. 

And with that we shall wrap up this showcase. As always, I encourage you to give this build a try and don’t forget to leave a like and/or comment on the build if you enjoy it. 

Keep building friends! Because you never know which build we'll feature next, and it might just be yours!

The Hemomancer

3634195974?profile=RESIZE_710x

Hey everyone, welcome to another Character Build Showcase. Last week, Furrion covered FishDout’s Weeping Angel, and to continue with the horror theme of our contest Bloodlines, I’ve decided to dive head first into Warlocksg’s Hemomancer!

Building around the Spell Tome Equilibrium, Warlock creates some rather interesting spell effects and Gameplay - one of them being having no Health Regen, making each battle leaving you on the edge of your seat.

I highly encourage you, the reader, to check it out as taking inspiration from other genre/games etc, Warlock goes one step further with Equilibrium and bases his build around it entirely. 

Keep an eye out for next week's Character Build Showcase. It could come from the Skyrim Character Build Group, maybe the Fallout or Classics Group or even the Misc. Gaming.

Character Build Showcase: The Weeping Angel

3603544422?profile=RESIZE_710x

3280456911?profile=RESIZE_710xHey guys welcome to another weekly showcase. This week we’ll be diving into the shoes of FishDoubt’s Weeping Angel based off of the creepy beings of the same name from Doctor Who.

Strike in an absolute blur of unmatched precision, tactically control the battlefield through the use of select shouts, spells and skills.  The Weeping Angel is true foe to be feared, for you never no when they will strike.

FishDoubt has combined some very nifty skills together to make one very efficient assassin. If striking with speed, finesse and leaving no witness’s is your kind of playstyle I’d encourage you to take a good look at this awesome character build!

Be sure to keep the characters rolling guys because you very well could find your own work featured on the homepage!

Character Build Showcase - Divayth Fyr

830847108?profile=RESIZE_710xHey guys, we're back again with another Character Build Showcase! This week's featured build is the man, the myth, the legend himself, Divayth Fyr by Elysium. A builds that stands out among the rest as one of the few builds in our entire archive to take players all the way to level 81 mastering just about every skill tree along the way. As always I'd like to start out with an excerpt from the author themselves to give an idea of what this build is all about. 

At his heart of hearts, Divayth Fyr is a scientist and researcher, a true ancient scholar. He doesn’t have one area of interest, but is hungry for all knowledge and answers. He relishes ancient secrets. Collect all books, books from Morrowind or strange things, but even novels or poetry can fill his shelves. From the ancient civilizations of the Dwemer and the Nords to the obscure magic of Oblivion and beyond, he wants to know everything. Think of the weird and strange magical places and things in Skyrim, from the Gildergreen to the Relics of Ahzidal. He’s a magical tourist.

Visionary. Madman. Legend. Divayth Fyr is the oldest living mortal in the history of Tamriel, at an astonishing 4000+ years of age. He has bore witness of many of Tamriel's most historic events from the rise and fall of the Tribunal to the crowning of the first Emperor. A man as accomplished as Divayth Fyr has quite literally been everywhere, done everything, and got the t-shirt while he was at it.

Elysium's rendition of this famed figure lives up to the legend, aspiring to master everything, and all that and more is reflected in both the gameplay and roleplay. Througout your playthrough you'll master a whopping twelve skill trees as you journey through Skyrim, unlocking its many mysteries, and come away with unrivaled versatility. Battlemage, sorcerer, ranger, barbarian, and everything in between. With his vast knowledge and experience Divayth Fyr can be anything and do anything the battle calls for. So, if you've been searching high and low for the ultimate character build up for just about everything the game has to offer, I cannot recommend this build enough. Elysium's intimate knowledge of the lore surrounding the prolific sorcerer and brilliant gameplay mechanics are what truly sets this build apart. 

And with that we shall wrap up this showcase. As always, don’t forget to leave a like and/or comment on the build if you enjoy it. 

Keep building friends! Because you never know which build we'll feature next, and it might just be yours!

Hey guys, welcome back to another Character Build Showcase, where we  feature a Build on the Home Page. It could be any Build, from any Group on the Forge, it could even be yours. Last week, we had Pixel showcase Matt Feeney‘s The Way-Maker. This week, I decided to go with something that should give our participants some ideas for our Second Contest, Bloodlines. Our very own TexasC4’s The Spellsword Crusader, here’s a taste about it;

3544746932?profile=RESIZE_710x

“Tamriel, Dawn’s Beauty in the language of the Aldmeris.  But amongst the beauty, evil lurks in the shadows… evil you will cleansing with Divine light.”

The Spellsword Crusader focuses on an ex-Vigilant to Stendarr, whom still upholds their ways - well most of them. While also using a combination of Schools which I rarely see - Illusion and Restoration. Both two very supportive skills, which actually are implemented rather well. TexasC4, also uses the Spellsword Crusaders’ backstory and RP in many ways, one such being the reasoning for certain Illusion spells, particular weapons as well as dealing with the Divines and Daedric Princes. 

All  in all, I highly recommend the Spellsword Crusader, from its RP and Skills, to its Backstory. Don’t forget to give it a like and comment too while you’re at it. Keep tuned in for next week guys, as who knows what Build will be showcased and from where, it might even be yours! So keep on building guys!
