NO SPOILERS PLEASE.

Since I am new to Rping, I decided to do some 'shadowing' I guess you can call it that. I am currently looking at an ongoing RP called Escape from Iron Hills and I am just going to give you my thoughts on it while I am reading it.


Current Spot: Up to date.

If you guys are reading it as well, tell me what you think.

As for the people RPing in this, keep up the good work :)

Questions I have for other readers:
Who is your favorite character?
Least Favorite?

In the Spoiler tabs there will be spoilers! So if you are reading the story don't open it otherwise boom, here you go.

I feel like all the rpers are doing really well with them.

My favorite character so far is either Anrelri or Do'.

Do' hasn't really made an appearance in this so far, but his character is exciting.
As for Anrelri, you kind of feel sympathy for her even after what she did to get into prison.

I can see that Do is suppose to be a very strong and intelligent character, and at the moment he is pulling it off.



My least favorite character would probably the reachmen(Jurus). Not because he is a bad character, but because of his personality. He seeks protection from hagravens. HAGRAVENS.
Unfortunately I did not feel any sympathy for him when he was talking about his sister's death.
Also don't like the warden either because he is so damn hot headed.

Gargish, Abeile, and the Observer (can't think of him on the top of my head) Are also very interesting.

So waiting on to see what Gargish did to get in prison.
Well now that we know about his other side, I would like to see what happens with Anrelri and his chemistry because it does seem that they are beginning to trust each other do to the fact that they both have split personality.

Let's talk about gargish for a second. When 'he' began to appear, at first i thought it was forced which made me want to skim through the scene. I then thought about the tone of the scene. While Gargish's 'other' began to speak avidly I could picture the Orc in that state. So I do believe in the end the altercation that broke out between Anrelri and Gargish was important.

Abeile doesn't have a lot of dialogue in this rp so It is very hard to judge her.
She does in fact seem quite irritating, but in a good way. You can tell she is quite of an Observer like Celarion, but you can also see that she is keeping her distance because one:
She hates Vampires and two:
She is pretty small.

Well now Abeile is dead and I didn't see it coming. A little shocking but nothing major, I can see why it is considered an accident.

I assume the person Rping as her wanted to drop out, and that may be one reason why they killed her off.

She didn't seem like a main character, but she could have been developed.

As for the Observer Celarion I have one word for him...cocky.



Even though I feel like he is cocky, I believe he's a good character(good as in useful to the plot.)


The best part of the Rp is that it is Lore friendly.
The RPers know a lot about their character's race and culture. Big props to Jusur the reachman.

UPDATE: Anrelri and Jurus seem to be having a lot of small talk, which I particularly don't care for.
As for Celarion and Jurus, the hatred between them seem forced.
My hatred between Jurus grows more and more as I read through this RP, which it seems like that the RPer attended...

Anrelri and Gargish had another incident that I kinda skimmed through...

But now the exciting part is the Jail break that Ragnar talked about. Do' is seeming more and more like a badass, and Anrelri is smart.

She's not mucking anything up... SO FAR.

I can see why the Jail Break version 1 did not work out. Controlling the gaurds wouldn't have helped because you know other Rpers would have wanted to win the fight as a gaurd..(If you know what I mean). Anyways I really like the escape plan so far and now I will continue reading. :)

HOLD ON.. I just remember something I was thinking about. Anrelri's family was killed by a Khajiit So when I was reading about Do' Anrelri escaping it was kind of cool and ironic to see Anrelri trusting another Khajit...

BTW Took an Arrow to the Knee... You did a really good job with Do' because I can picture his voice In my head.

You guys are "showing" not "telling" which is really important when I am reading this.

Anrelri, Celarion, and Do' all left the Rp. Maybe the reachman too idk...

I feel like Celarions exit went quite well. I believe that Is when Ri' decided to drop out.

The new character Nadene has entered in to the story and I feel her character is a good character.
I do however dislike Nadene due to 'her' personality. The other side of her is portrayed well and I do agree that Nadene's other half isn't as strong as Anrelri's, I feel like it still fits into the story.

The new Dunmar that arrived along with Nadene is confusing.....maybe it's my ADHD but idk.

My ADHD is trying to make me skip these two pages. Maybe it's me being tired or the lack of sleep I got who knows.

Then Dunmer Alucardeo is no longer a confusing character but he is the fourth vampire to step foot in the prison... Yay...

It's understandable. Vampires do tend to commit crimes. I'm almost caught up and when I am I will be debating on Updating or not. It really depends.

So it seems like Thelis has an escaped plans seeing how Thelis is pretty confident on the person he picked the right person for the job. All i can say is we will see.



Now My favorite character.

I did a lot of thinking on this....
While The Dunmer made a very short appearance. That's all it was short.
Jurus actually the one that was awarded of my least favorite character due to the fact that he seemed like a hot-headed asshole who is now a vampire, his character was made very well as he meant to be hated.

Gargish's character turned put pretty well but later on in the story his character became quite dull to me. While his 'otherside' did bring out the madness to him. He did seem a little too nice to me.

Abeile is dead.

Celerian Had too short of an appearance and while he was a good character he was perhaps Underpowered. Which made him look like a victim rather then a threat.

Thelis just appeared. While he is probably my favorite human character, which is good because he had such a short appearance, he didn't manage to make it at the top.

Nandeme actually competed with Jurus as my least favorite character do to her split personality. Then it again it suits her really well.
Alucardeo was confusing at first but now I know more of him, but I still feel kinda indifferent about him.
(Sorry if I miss anyone.)

Which leaves me to Do' and Anrelri

Do' Pros: His strength, intelligence and discreetness made me think highly of him as I read through it.
Cons: His lack of flaws. Though he may have been a badass, that's all he was... I knew nothing of his backstory seeing him cringe all I know is that he doesn't like potatoes. It's more of a dislike than a flaw. Maybe if I was that nord that got his ass wooped, I probably would just wave a potato in front of his face and hope for the best.

Anrelri Pros: Speaking five languages have their benefits, and being a vampire can have it as well. I kind of have a soft spot for Anrelri being that my main character Nirella is also a female bosmer. Anrelri's ability to follow orders, and her Intelligence helps.

Cons: Her Vamperism/Split-personality- Inthe rp her having a split personality really helped through the story, but the main problem I had was that her SP kind of restrained me from feeling any sympathy for her. I felt more sympathy more for her family rather than herself. Because she inflicted a lot more damage than she did to other families.

Now I have to choose.

Due to the Fact that I couldn't find dues flaws, I would have to go with Anrelri just because of the character balance. Do' being right behind her...... and to tell you the truth. I have short man syndrome. (Joking.)

Remember this Do' was one of the only characters that I could picture his character perfectly.
I still might update even though I might be in it.

I would like to thank all the Rpers in this Rp for making it strong.

I encourage anybody who dropped out to reconsider joining (not forcing any one)

This might be my last update due to the fact that I am caught up to the RP.



I'll be liking my favorite parts of the RP so......free likes :)


I will keep updating this until I'm finish reading it.

Wow... you know an RP's popular when it gets its own fan-thread...

Well I'm glad you like the RP despite the fact I've dropped out after escaping and handed over the reigns to Ragnar though I might rejoin.

Glad you like my char man ;) Do's more the strong silent type so he's not intended to say much at all but he's certainly observant and calculating.

And yeah I intended for the warden to be hot-headed and generally pretty aggressive and harsh, most of the guards are the same way.

Yeah, One reason why I started reading the Rp is to learn from you guys. While doing this I saw myself getting attach to the story.
I love how you guys are just feeding/playing off of each other without ruining the plot.
