Bloodlines: A Skyrim Character Building Contest


"I fear the night. Because the werewolves and vampires don't"

Halloween is upon us o'children of the night. And what better way is there to celebrate than a Skyrim Character Building Contest. So welcome one and all to our 2nd ever Skyrim Build Contest. I give you....

The Elder Scrolls: Bloodlines - A Skyrim Character Building Contest. 

For this contest we wanted to try our hand at a vampire/werewolf theme while granting contestants as much freedom as possible, and 'Bloodlines', even more so than 'Pirates of Tamriel', will definitely be a treat for the most creative among us. In this contest we'll be taking the bountiful blessings of our  Daedric lords and turning them into Skyrim Character Builds. But not all see lycanthropy and vampirism as blessings. To some they are a curse, or worse, a disease to be purged....

There are no limits or restrictions on the skills, mods or equipment you may use. Use whatever you want. BUT your entry must revolve around the theme of vampirism and/or lycanthropy. The Elder Scrolls series is rich with vampire clans and lycanthropic strains for you to work with. If you'd like feel free to take inspiration from vampires and werewolves from outside the TES Universe, or invent your own original werewolf or vampire. You can even go so far as making characters dedicated to eradicating these creatures from the face of Nirn. Be it a creature of the night or a champion of the light your only real limitation is your imagination.  You may work in teams of no more than 3 people total. Once the competition closes, a panel of judges (see below) will judge each submitted build based on the criteria below and announce the winners! Here are the prizes…

- Resources - 

Below are a few helpful suggestions to get you started should you decide to enter. Here you'll find everything from informative TES wiki pages and lore articles to community input on what makes a good character build. We've even included information on various factions of vampire/werewolf hunters but what we've listed below are nowhere close to all of them. Regardless of what you do it would benefit you immensely to do some additional research. 

Good luck and may the best character build win!

  • Sounds great, sign me up

    • Wonderful you're in.

  • Bloody beautiful. This time round I won’t be able to participate but I am more than willing to help out the participants - whether that’s general feedback or even help with a backstory. However, I won’t build it for you, nor am I a participant myself (unless I do a collab with someone).

    TLDR: I won’t be able to join but I’m more than willing to help out participants but I won’t be making the build for you.

    • This. I'm happy to be of any assistance too. Put me into the resource pool if you like Curse.


  • Count me in!

    • You're all signed up. Best of luck to you. 

  • Eeey, sign me up

    • Ok Chris you're in. Good luck. 

      • Thanks Guess, i got a few ideas

  • The criteria doesn't show up for me, but I'd really like to enter.
