As I'm assuming you've guessed from the title this would be an investigation RP, no delving into a dungeon or traversing the land just staying within the area the RP is set and putting the chars minds together.

The setting will be a tavern in northern Skyrim located near Winterhold in a semi-wooded are during a small blizzard. This will be a few months before the war for the ruby throne breaks out so there may be a bit of tension caused by that but for the most part I don't expect it to have much affect on the RP.

The investigation itself will be investigating a chain of murders happening in the area around the tavern seemingly caused by bandits but now suspected to be the work of an experienced killer possibly even a necromancer.

I intend (though it could change) for this to have multiple outcomes due to different choices that will be available so the killer may not necessarily be brought to justice, for example.

I will be using my char Thorvald Hammer-Hand for this if anyone is interested to know.

This RP will be open for maybe a week or so after it's posted at which point the plot should hopefully be moving ahead after that it will be closed.

Any feedback of suggestions are welcome.

I said maybe a necromancer, I'm unsure if the killer should be a necromancer, psychopath, assassin or what but it'll get revealed in the RP.

I would say a straight necromancer is my least favorite option for the killer...a psychopath maybe even a cultist something like that would be far more interesting. Give it a twist man make the person maybe methodical have connections such as certain cut marks and certain ways the individual was killed basically make it like a real serial killer and investigation make it all about correlation and finding the common grounds. Hell maybe even spice it up and throw in a few bodies that are not actually his and then make it subtle that they arn't and make it like the mimicry was maybe intentional to cover up someone else as a culprit.

I say for example if there is ten murders have at least two that are unrelated, but seem related so that maybe we could even if lucky bring more than one person to justice. Anyways those are just my thoughts, but I would love to join this RP. Anyways took if you want any help with this I would be more than happy to collaborate this is right up my alley.

Hi I was just reading through some random threads and found this, if you don't mind i'd like to send out an idea- the killer should be like Hannibal, someone who the community trusts and who isn't suspicious at all but secretly have a motive. For example the killer could have been born in this location but his parents were executed and he/she was orphaned and abused at the orphanage which traumatized the killer so one day it returns to take revenge on the community who he blames for handing his parents over to the authorities. just an idea :3

That's a pretty good idea, I'll consider adding it into the RP.

Though it may not work because the setting is one of those taverns in the wilderness without much stuff around, like a place for adventurers to stop and get drunk ;)
