Gods & Mortals - A Skyrim Character Building Contest


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…

  • so when we are finished withit where do I put it


    • Post it in the CB group. Click Add a Discussion

      • so i just type in CB group to find it then

  • I have been pretty quiet these past few weeks from both the site and the discord. I haven't been playing or thinking about Skyrim at all so the build is still incomplete. I'd attribute it to a combination of burn out from hours of playing prior to the contest in combination with college starting up again. I have run it through playtesting a couple of times, but no concrete write up or anything of the sort. This idea is something I like a lot and isn't something I want to push out for the sake of having it out. I'll tinker away at it eventually, but for now, I will not be posting my submission for this contest. I apologize for updating so close to the end, however, this build will see the light of day - hopefully, sooner than Henson's battlemage. Good luck to everyone else!

  • Sorry fellas, not gonna post in time. I, Ramses the Rad, withdraw from the competition. Good luck to everyone else.

  • Yeah, I have to withdraw too. I had a pretty shitty last few days and there's been too much indecision on my part about the build for this contest. I'll get 'em next time and the build ideas that I had from this contest will definitely go up, I just need to go at my own pace. Honestly, I don't know what planets were aligned when I did the pirates one, because I've not been able to do a contest since. Haha, as I age, I probably need more time for my old fart brain to churn these out. And that's on me. My apologies for disappointing, yet again. Good luck to everyone.

    Done, hope I am still on time. Quick question are addendums allowed to be made after the cut of date?

    Contest Build - Soul Eater
    What entered is unknown and doesn’t matter, but what returned is a fate worse than death. Come forth the Soul Eater The Masters have tasks for you.…
  • I would like to enter under the Diety Trinimac.

  • By the way pushing this due date back to the 7th of Nov

    • Thanks! That's awesome. However, due to work and frankly, due to me wanting to branch out with my new builds into modded territory, I'm still not going to be able to finish in time. Good luck to everyone though!
