Whiterun RP

So I've been talking to several people either via PM or in the Thu'um box about breathing some life back into this forum and this seems to be the idea favoured by... well, everyone.

The RP will be set in (as I'm sure you've guessed from the title) Whiterun during the year 4E 203. The last Dragonborn (after defeating Alduin, Harkon, Miraak, and decimating the dragon population) left for Atmora to better understand the Thu'um so neither they nor the dragons will be appearing to interfere with things.

While the Dragon and Vampire crisis has been dealt with the civil war has not and Whiterun, given its geographical location, has become the centre of the conflict having frequently changed hands via a variety of different methods from outright siege to (both literal and metaphorical) backstabbing. Vignar Grey-Mane and Balgruuf the Greater are the two figures most commonly reinstated as jarl for the Stormcloaks and Imperials respectively with the RPers playing the parts of members of the court of Dragonsreach with Vignar as the current Jarl.

Your character may not become jarl as that position would be given to a member of the Grey-Mane's, Battle-Born's or one of Balgruuf's kin. For this reason you may not create a character belonging to one of these families. The only other position in court I will forbid (at least from the beginning) would be the position of court wizard since court wizards are rather neutral in matters of politics thus Farengar would always remain court wizard of Whiterun.

Anyone may control the current jarl for relatively minor things so long as they make sense. Your character does not need to be a Nord. One of the reasons I chose Whiterun is because of the rather high tolerance of other races. To keep things interesting in the RP you may also create relatively minor events (bandit raids on caravans outside the city, stuff like that) though I will add more major events from time to time.

Roster:
-Took an arrow in the knee.
-Ri'Do'Ja.
-Isilmo.
-Azmodem
-Hobado.
-Alucardeo.

Additional information:

Players may arrange for the death of any character but the one controlled by another character or Farengar. Additionally, at least one Battle-Born and one Grey-Mane must remain alive.

The Dark Brotherhood, Thieves Guild, Companions and College of Winterhold will all be in the same state they were in at the start of the events of Skyrim.

It should be needless to say that Whiterun would be the size expected were it not for video game restraints.

I am thinking about playing as a merchant and an owner of a few farms. One who's strength is Money :)

Is Whiterun large enough for two trade companies ;)

Well realistically Whiterun is a sprawling city of hundreds of thatched roofs, from each one rising a plume of smoke climbing up and above the districts that rest on the ledges of the grand hillock from which one could see the farms that dot the expanse of sparsely forested plain that surrounds the trade hub metropolis with dry yellowing tall grasses that sway to the cold wind that blows down whistling from the snow-dammed mountain passes...

Poetic...

Alator keep in mind that this is supposed to be a small political RP. If you're going as farm-owner person you'd have Nazeem-like status and modest wealth. Not a character who wields gold like a warhammer.

Could i perhaps join your rp with my character
AzmodemSarothren?
He could perhaps be working as a traveling bard at either The Drunken Huntsman or The Bannered Mare.

Here's my bio if anyone needs a template.

Name: Ulfgar Blackthorn.

Position: Thane.

Race: Cyro-Nord.

Sex: Male.

Age: 44.

Appearance: Roughly 6'2 with skin tanned more than the average Nord given his birth and green eyes. He has close-cropped reddish-brown hair and a slightly gaunt face with a close-cropped bear around his mouth (kind of like the face on the Masque of Clavicus Vile in Oblivion if you need a reference). He has a once-powerful looking frame with heavy shoulders and chest with a boy's flat stomach though he appears to be a bit out of shape.

Backstory: Ulfgar was born in the Imperial City in Cyrodiil though he and his family left the city after its sack by the Aldmeri Dominion during the Great War and moved to Chorrol.

When he was in his early twenties he became an adventurer travelling Cyrodiil, Skyrim, High Rock and Hammerfell with two companions: Vhokken, a fellow Nord from Solitude and Hannibal a Breton from Daggerfall.

He deemed himself too old for adventuring when he was forty and returned to his native Skyrim and settled down in the city of Whiterun to live in peace with his sister Uthgerd. He had made some money adventuring and used it to become a trader in furs and fabrics. While in the city of Whiterun he married a local aspiring merchant, Ysolda, and took pity on two orphans from Riften: Samuel Beaufort and Runa Fair-Shield.

Other: He has two other sisters in Skyrim both of which became bandits: Fjolla who became the leader of the Mistwatch bandits and Eisa who recently came to Whiterun. He is an enthusiastic collector of Ayleid, Akiviri and other artifacts.

Yes you can join Az but you may want to reread the OP.

I do realise that a bard might seem like a strange choice considering the nature of the rp but a bard at an inn could be used as a informant to anyone willing to pay them weather they be a nobleman suspicious of his wife or a bandit leader who wishes to plan a raid on a trading caravan.

All right, if you want to play as that kind of character then sure but you may find yourself with little to do. Just a warning.

If you'd like he could be a court entertainer too.
