Gods & Mortals - A Skyrim Character Building Contest

7812835665?profile=RESIZE_710x

Well its been long overdue but its finally here! The much anticipated 4th Skyrim Character Building contest is live. With that we're proud to present...

The Elder Scrolls: Gods and Mortals

For this contest we wanted to try our hand at a theme revolving around the many higher beings found in The Elder Scrolls while granting contestants as much freedom as possible, and with gods of all kind being the center focus, this contest will grant contestants more freedom than they've ever had before. In this contest we'll be exploring the connections shared between mortal kind and the many gods which inhabit the Aurbis.

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 one or more deities within TES. The Elder Scrolls series is rich with a multitude of god like figures for you to work with - and you're by no means limited to simply the Divines or the Dardric Princes. Any higher being within the TES universe - anything from Sithis to even Mannimarco - is fair game.  Your character is by no means limited to simply being a champion acting on behalf of your chosen deities either. So long as your chosen deity remains the centerpiece of your build in some capacity you're free to do whatever. 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…

  • *hype*

  • Very cool. I call dibs on Satakal. Well I guess not dibs, I assume multiple people can do the same god/godette. But I will do a build around Satakal.

     

  • Count me in! Hmm, I'm going with the man, the myth, the deity who is now fused with the Warrior, Reymon Ebonarm

    • And, I guess I'll do a joint Reymon and Leki build

  • I may do it, I haven't officially decided. I have a few ideas. 

    • Alright, looks like this is going to happen. Started the playtest yesterday using Adamant (I know a modded build!!!), Mysticism, and Mundus (balanced with no crafting, Smilodon + realistic damage patch and abosolutely zero points into health) and am intrigued by some of the interesting synergies between Conjuration (the goal are thralls), the pilgrim and poison branches of restoration, and the Serpent and Ritual Stones. The deities represented will be a disillusioned healer's transition from Arkay to Orkey (Old Knocker) with a smattering of Hircine and the spooky lore of the slavic Leshy. 

      It's no Preston Garvey, but I lack the building skill for that one. :D I leave that to my betters. 

  • Wait I change my mind I want to do Preston Garvey

    Garveyism was alive and well in the fourth era. His worshippers were trained carefully and when fully prepared, assigned to a settlement that needed their help.

    Garveyites espouse the values of omnipresence, overbearance and eternal self-righteousness.

    • The Garveys were culled for a reason...

      • THAT'S GREAT NEWS. HERE - YOU SHOULD HAVE ONE OF THESE FLARE GUNS

    • Dude, if you are allowed to do this, and make it a serious build, I will, no homo, love you
