WIP Character Builds

We understand making a great character build that others actually want to play is difficult. And while some are comfortable working on their build in private and releasing it when complete, others may desperately need a lot of guiddance along the way. Whats where this section comes in.

In this section you may post any half finished rough draft build your working if you're in need of guidance or just want a place for people to evaluate your work as you work on it. Here are some helpful guidelines to remember

-Ensure you include the term "WIP Build" to your title so it can be more readily distinguisable from completed character builds. Example - WIP Build: The Sneak Archer

-For those posting their WIPs here, please be open to constructive criticism. You wouldnt be posting your work here if you thought it was perfect to begin with, so please make an honest effort to take in criticism. 

-For those commenting, dont be an ass. It takes a bit of courage to share ones own creative ideas, so dont ruin it by trying to bring people down. Be mindful of how you critique. Focus on being constructive

-When your build is complete, feel free to move it yourself or let me or an admin know and we'll move it over to where the completed builds reside.

WIP Build: The Eye of the Queen


They travelled around Tamriel with the Princess Ayrenn. Upon her return to the Summerset Isles and her ascension to the Throne of Alinor, they swore their allegiance. Known as the Eyes of the Queen. Handpicked by the Queen you serve the Aldmeri Dominion as spies. They are few and stick to the shadows. Scattered across the Dominion and Tamriel, they will report to the Unforeseen Queen personally. And nobody else.   

But the Queen has been dead. For over 2 era’s.

You were born in Skyrim though your family hailed from the Aldmeri Dominion. Unlike many of your kinsmen, you were taught about the evils of the Dominion. You had to keep it quiet. Public display of such knowledge would be very dangerous to you. And even more dangerous to your family, after all, the Justiciars are ruthless and wont hesitate to go after those you love to get to you.

Eventually, after reading a lot of books, you learn about the forming of the Aldmeri Dominion. You learn that Ayrenn intents to stand strong against the troubles facing Tamriel. Together with the neighboring Bosmer and Khajiit they would stand strong.

Years later and many troubles have faced you, Skyrim and Tamriel. After growing tired of it, you decide to take matter in your own hands. You will become a modern Eye of the Queen.




Race: Altmer, Bosmer or Khajiit. Breton could work too, Elise Mallon was a Breton Eye in Summerset. But lets focus on the big three.

Weapons: Daggers, swords. You may choose whatever you want to use.

Armor: Anything simple and black. Shadowed Netch Leather best represents the original look of the Eyes.

Major skills:
Sneak: Gotta be quiet if youre a spy
Light armour: protection. Not relevant if you decide to use black robes
One handed: gotta be able to defend yourself
Illusion: Not every subject will be wanting to talk to you and give up their little secrets. Some mind dabbling might change this. Also very useful to escape shaky situations. Or create them. Never underestimate the ability to influence others.

Minor skills: Alchemy, speech, smithing


Obviously, you’ll want to approach combat with stealth. Avoiding combat would be even better. You’re a spy and murder is not your first concern. But when the need arises, you will not hesitate to end a life. Following Ayrenn’s beliefs, your primary mission will be to disrupt the Thalmor influence in Skyrim. You’re free to do this in whatever way you want, use that imagination.  



All of these are optional, ofcourse. But they are recommended.


A Lovely Letter: Aid the Bosmer ranger Faendal and recruit him as your companion Eye
College of Winterhold: Join the College to learn more about Illusion magic. Eventually the College needs your help, preventing greater disaster. In your endeavors, you recruit J’Zargo as an Eye.
Moon Amulet: You meet Kharjo, retrieve his amulet for him and recruit him as an Eye.
