A Perfect Plan – By Evaan on TESO-RP
Evaan walked across the bridge leading to Vivec's Temple Canton, checking his plan once more in his head as he did so. Ahead of him the structure rose out of the water, the sandstone walls seeming to glow gold in the summer sun. Complimenting this was the rich red Temple banners wafting gently in the breeze, the symbol of Almsivi emblazoned boldly on every sheet. In front of the three spires of the temple proper stood the larger-than-life statues of the god-king Vivec, his legendary feats on display for the entire city. All around echoed the roar of the outlets from the canalworks, pouring the sewage of the building out in surprisingly beautiful waterfalls.
[Agnar Gunnrulf] Sunny Days of Yore – By Agnar Gunnrulf on TESO-RP
They charged at each other, a noble Breton warrior with his long two-handed long-sword and his opponent, a proud and able Nord, toting a single one-handed blade. The two soon clashed, locking weapon for weapon, the furious song of battle echoing across the fields as these two great men fought for their homelands.
[Neela] Without Quarter - Chapter One: The Culling of Senchal – By Neela on TESO-RP
Fire. Raging fire engulfed the scoundrel den of Senchal. Once a massive trading port for pirates, smugglers, and merchants; in the last few hours half of its neighborhoods had been reduced to kindling and ash by Khajiit soldiers, some of which were still foolishly running through the streets looting whilst others carried on with their job. The smell of rotting and burning flesh permeated the air, dead bodies of Khajiiti littering the streets. Screams could be heard at every corner. Buildings withered and cried out as they burned to the ground. The world was coming to an end.
When Strength Fails [Asynja Mournskold] – By Six on TESO-RP
The morning was brisk. The mists over the marshes were turned a faint purpled hue as the sun peeked over the horizon, the cabin just another silhouette amongst the twisted shadows of trees and stone. All was silent, save for...
Crack. Thunk. Crack. Thunk.
