Province: Cyrodil

City: Imperial City

Character: Nostalo Mede, Future Emperor of Tamriel. Nostalo is the son of the former Emperor of Tamriel, Titus Mede 2. Nostalo is young, stubborn and thus far is looking to be a good Emperor in a bad situation.

Appearance: Nostalo is of average height, thin yet muscular, with an athletic build. His skin is slightly golden, a result of his great-grandmother being an Altmer, (on his mothers side) he has black hair, brown eyes and has a scar on his left cheek.

Age/Race: 25, Imperial

Family: Caetia Mede (Truis), Empress, 24
Betav Mede, Heir Apparent, 7
Calta Mede, Princess, 5
Senen Mede, Prince, 1

Skills: Nostalo is a cunning, smart commander who is willing to take some risks. He is good with a sword and shield, two swords and bow. He is also smart and a great orator.

Personality: Proud, almost to a fault and cunning Nostalo is a great Commander. He is willing to hear the pleas of the common man, mer, and beast folk. He is also smart and has never really wanted the throne, and will abdicate if a worthy lord is found (*cough* subtle alliance offer cough).

Backstory: The Dark Brotherhood killed his father when he was 10; Nostalo was thrust onto the throne. Ruling was a difficult task for the 10 year old so the Elder Council took over ruling until he was 16. The Elder Council though were not good rulers losing influence across the Empire.

Liege Lord(s) (?): None

Vassal(s) (?): Technically, everyone. Notable ones include the Count of Bravil, Casbrio Mede (his cousin), the Countess of Skingrad, Volta Truis (the Empress's sister) and the Governor of Skyrim, Jarl of Falkreath Galmar Stormcloak (son of the now dead Ulfric).

Public Alliance(s) (?):

Banner: The Empire’s Crest (Imperial Sign)

Traits: The “Empire” is in shambles, with only Cyrodil and Skyrim left Nostalo is looking for ways to expand his territory. The army of the Empire has been strengthened in the past few years; more legionnaires have been recruited, along with cavalry, archers, smiths, mages, battlemages, spellswords, and siege equipment. He has also re-built the Imperial Navy. The Empire's legionnaires and cavalry are better then they have been since the Oblivion Crisis.

Notes: To gain the Nords support he allows Talos to be worshipped.

Province: North-Eastern Morrowind and Solstheim

City/ies: Port Telvannis, Sadrith Mora

Character: Varen Telvayn of House Telvanni (Age: 341)

Backstory: After the Red year and the Argonian invasion the Houses of Morrowind lost almost all their power and influence. When House Hlaalu had been stripped of its power and holdings the Dunmer people rejoiced as the last of the Empire's strength over the Dunmeri people but when Disaster struck and Morrowind was overwhelmed first by natural disaster and then by Invasion all the houses where crushed... Dres was annihilated by the Argonians in Tear for the crimes of centuries of enslavement, Sadras fell apart as soon as Narsis fell to the Argonians, Indoril was destroyed tragically in the sack of Almalexia. House Redoran emerged victorious and led the people of Morrowind from the city of Blacklight but when the Ash-lander tribes rebelled against them their whole leadership was executed by rebels. the fleeing people of Blacklight left for Raven Rock on Solstheim seeking Redoran protection. House Telvanni was hit hard but more by the eruption of Red mountain then by the Invasion being so isolated. The Great house Telvanni begun to plan a re-colonization of their old lands starting by rebuilding the ash-covered Island city of Sadrith Mora. not long after the people of Necrom, devastated by the fall of their leading house, Indoril. The people of Necrom turned to the House Telvanni for protection and Telvanni accepted. In turn Necrom became a strong vassal to the House. On Solstheim the influence of Redoran fell greatly when the news of the fall of Blacklight reached Raven Rock and with that the whole of the Raven Rock government lost all credibility. The Dunmer of the settlement turned to Tel Mithryn for aid and guidance which was provided by the forgotten Telvanni Master Wizard, Neloth, he governed Raven rock and Tel Mithryn until the day Councillor Meryn Releth arrived from Port Telvannis to assume leadership over all of Southern Solstheim in the name of the House Telvanni. The power of the Dunmer of Raven Rock grew to take most of North-Western Solstheim and claimed the valuable Stalhrim deposits located there and created a large mining based settlement there in the location of an old Altmeri/ Dominion outpost. This was to grow over time like Raven Rock had on its ebony mines. This power spread to the rest of Solstheim finally causing the enslavement of the small population of the Nordic Skaal tribe an making them work in the mines and shape the Stalhrim itself for the Dunmer, teaching them how it is done.

Traits: Small military but excellent Elite troops of Dunmeri 'Hoplites', Telvanni Master Wizards, Necromancers of Necrom, Access to Stalhrim deposits in limited amounts, Ebony mines of Vvardenfell and the great sources in Raven rock and moderately large, highly trained Telvanni Navy.

Backstory: Yusuf was born into a warlike family in Stros M'Kai and took on the family traits, he's a big man with bulging muscles and bronze flesh with no hair other than his large bush eyebrows and beard (looks like Isran's beard in Dawnguard, I can't really describe it) and lots of scars showing said warlike nature and a sort of controlled rage behind his eyes. Yusuf proudly wields the family's double-bladed battle axe and two-handed scimitar and has cut down many foes with those weapons. He rose to power by having his elder brother murdered but took great care to make it look like a hunting accident and claimed leadership of his decent sized army then used promises of wealth and glory as his rallying cry to gather the armies of High Rock into a large, powerful, warrior wave ready to pour into the rest of Tamriel like the first Ra'Gada did in Hammerfell.

Family: Has five sons, three of which he had with his wife the other two are bastards, as well as a wife. He doesn't know of any family directly related to him as he murdered his only sibling and his parents died of sickness some time before he rose to power.

Province: Argonia and the former parts of morrowind

Main City/ies: Stormhold and tear

Character: Kahlee-Jah

Age: 39

Brief description: He is a tall Argonian with many horns and spikes. He has a mix of emerald green and mud brown scales and always wears traditional argonian clothes and armour.

Skills and personality: His mains skills are being a great tactician and charismatic An-Xileel politician. He is very patriotic and soon rose to take full control of the An-Xileel. Despite the fact that they are very isolationistic Kahlee-Jah holds the belief that to truly keep argonians safe
that the An-Xileel needs to hold absolute power.

Backstory: Kahlee-Jah was born to a rich An-Xileel general's family in Helstrom. He was raised and educated well and taught to fight from a young age. Eventually he joined the army and worked his way up to a relatively high up position where he entered politics. Due to being very charismatic, passionate and very good at persuading others his support grew. Ever since the troubles in tamriel started with no major power he petitioned to the leaders to take the chance and take over however they completely rejected this idea. Through a series of 'unfortunate events' his opposition died out and he became leader of Argonia. His first order was to get the troops ready as he wanted to take out any competition for argonia and ensure the safety of all argonians, in and out of their homeland.

Family: Shavi-Ta, wife 38

Sure, what do you think of the Vassal/Liege Lord/Alliance part?

Maybe Ulfric had a son who was all brawn, no brains, brought Skyrim back into the Empire as part of an alliance to fight the elves. Both sides were weakened leading to the rise of warlords, all PCs would be warlords of a city and the area around it.

So it would be after Skyrim? It could be after a 2nd great war which really left no winners and everyone involved was weakened. Now they're all trying to take over and get more power. Where exactly would it take place?

I'm assuming we'll control the warlords, correct?

Can they be part of an already existing faction? e.g. thalmor, empire, an-Xileel etc...

Ok, I was thinking the existing factions could either be protecting their land or trying to get more. How many people will this have?
