  • Hey welcome to the forge! I personally don’t know a whole lot about sword singers but if you’re looking for ideas on how to roleplay one I can point you to some threads that ought to give you some good ideas.

    also just wondering im a huge fan of redguards so just wondering how one would roleplay a sword singer or ansei any help is appreciated

  • hi people, im new!


  • So sorry I couldn’t make the last event. 

  • If anyone notices a build sitting in the wrong rank be sure to point it out. These builds are ranking up faster than I can keep up with. A good problem to have for sure. 

  •  Can someone please look into my build, I don't want to forcing you to do it, I mean I worked really hard on the build and I want to see your opinions, like improvements etc. One thing if the build is qualified enough I would likely want it posted on youtube.

  • Interesting ideas here. Look forward to seeing them. 

  • I've have some good ideas for builds here, Note: This is only what skills you will use: 

    The Lucan: Dark Elf, Werefolf, Unarmed, Conjuration, Lightning Cloak (Destruction), Heavy Armor, Alteration > Mage Armor?, Lord Stone Proc With Mage Armor? Powered By His Wrath of His Ancestors

    The Ancient Wraith: Imperial, Bard like > Sneak, Light Armor, Archery, One-Handed, Block, Etherial > Bound Bow, Conjuration, Illusion (Can Bend The Will of Strong People And Spirits, Like Daedra), Spectral Like Ancient (Champion of Cyrodiil),

    Ghostblade, Arvak, Vampire, Summoned From His Eternal Rest To Be Awakened As A Monster > Calibribor Inspiration Character (Middle-Earth), Aetherial Crown, Ritual & Atronach?

    The Overlord: Orc, Heavy Armor, Two Handed (Volendrung), The Chosen of Malacth, Dragonplate With Wolf Armor, Block



  • Justus, there’s really no rules regarding builds that use mods here. You can just tag your build as a modded build and that’s about it. Refer to Curse’s Hexblade for an example of a build that uses mods.
