Re: Out of Character Discussion
Barenzi or something, ya.... Think the average age is about 800 or so... but we have had people live longer.  But ya, Dunmer Queen lived from the Formation of the Empire, all the way to the Oblivion Crisis I do believe.. The book sorta stops at the Arena with Jager Tharn, but ya know.

Re: Out of Character Discussion
Vassaad, you wouldn't really know about Ancano and especially not about the Gray Cowl. Even Misha wouldn't know about it.

Re: Out of Character Discussion
Right a educated mage doesn't know shit about arcane artifacts, and I can't mention someone that I already mentioned.

Fine edited, but don't bother Nasrudin, just get us to the Garden.

Re: Out of Character Discussion
Just going by what is being said... probably know OF Ancano..

this is why it would have been good to know what the DB had, and had not accomplished, so rumors and other things would make sense, considering the fact, I was in Skyrim at the time of the Dragonborn, and your from Skyrim shortly after those events.

But, it seemed like little importance, so I never really pushed the issue.

No me and Et'Ada had a civil discussion, and I do not know the name of the Thalmor that killed Savos Aren.

Which just ruined the joke, and now I just want to get on with the next quest, since our banter was interrupted.

Well I orphaned at the College one or two years after the Dragonborn's visit anyways. I lived in the College till the Nords kicked us non-nords out. And im still a Stormclock. But appreently Ancano became Voldemort

Re: Out of Character Discussion
Well, if the Eye of Magnus thing happened, and the Psyjik order took it, they would probably WANT that to be not discussed.  But again, what do I know. I wanted to know if Blackreach had been opened, and I was told no, so the Dwemer capitol is still hidden away.  Wouldn't mind going on that Atherium quest :P  But I doubt that happened... (though, talk about some serious Dwemer knowledge), and that Runed Lexicon quest would have been something my character would have done given the chance.  Again, doubt it happened though.

Re: Out of Character Discussion
As I told Vassaad, I have my reasons.

And for you Nasrudin, to put it bluntly, your character had nothing to do with any quest-line that appears in Skyrim, exceptions can be made if appropriate, but mostly you were up north doing your own thing, which doesn't mean you didn't have your own share of adventures. Just don't think you were a big, famous/influential hero in Skyrim, or something.

Aside from not canonizing the Dragonborn's identity, the reason I left their activities to obscurity, is because most of the things the DB did, wouldn't really have had an impact outside of Skyrim. Even the Dragon Crisis, at least in Champions, was a pretty Skyrim-specific situation and didn't really spread outside Skyrim, until after Alduin was killed and the surviving dragons scattered across Tamriel. The last 'posting guideline' kind of applies here as well, you really shouldn't assume to have been involved in or have intimate knowledge of, any specific quest that happened in Skyrim or before, without confirming with me first (like Nasrudin has been doing). If something comes to your mind at some point, shoot me a private line or PM, so as to avoid future confusion.

Re: Out of Character Discussion
Of course not.  But for rumors or other such things, might come up (Such as a powerful artifact being found in some forgotten ruin, or people riding dragons in Solesteim, if that happened at all.)  The war was canonized, and it seems the DB didn't play a role at all in it.

Most side quests though, i wouldn't consider major.  So they might have gone unoticed by the DB.  However, other then some of the Dwemer specific sidequests, and the major Dawnguard one involving the temple.(which you never said happened or didn't), I just assume In was exploring, reading in a library, and more or less trying not to get lynched by Stormcloaks.

FYI, it's probably somewhere between nine and half past nine in the morning, with Misha being some ten minutes ahead of the main thread.

Re: Out of Character Discussion
I do apologize for the silence again, my head simply wasn't anywhere near a 'fantasy' setting and while usually I can just crank up my fantasy-playlist on spotify, this week that just wasn't possible and not for a lack of trying.

Re: Out of Character Discussion
Nasrudin; 'Ring', as in it sounds similar to Ta'agra, which is the Khajiit language. I should have made that clearer, sorry.

Re: Out of Character Discussion
Funnily enough, as I was proofreading that post, I thought "ring of Ta'agra" sounded confusing, but decided against changing it in the end, and usually I obsess over making my posts as clear as possible too!

Re: Out of Character Discussion
The time in the main thread, is coming up to ten in the morning, perhaps a little past it.

And Nasrudin, in-character actions in in-character posts please, choose what you want to do and edit it into your post. :)

Re: Out of Character Discussion
I wanted to let you all know, I will not be on for the next week or so.  My grandfather just passed, and I am going to be flying to his funeral in NY.  Will be spending time with friends and family while there, so Internet stuff isn't going to be high on priorities.

Take care, and see you again soon.

Re: Out of Character Discussion
Well that's a real bummer, I've lost both of my grandfathers years ago, so I certainly know how you must be feeling right now. Very sorry for your loss Nasrudin, and take all the time you need. :)

In slightly happier news, I just realized Champions is over a year old now! The first post I ever made here was on the 10th of March 2015 and the first story post was on the 18th! I consider this quite the achievement since, as you've all seen, I'm absolutely not the best GM on the planet (the "great file loss" of last year certainly didn't help) and while I have my personal reasons, I feel I've fed you guys enough excuses. My point is that I'd just like to thank all three of you for sticking around, despite everything!

Re: Out of Character Discussion
Would have gotten around to posting yesterday, but we had a little family get together in honor of May Day and I was beat afterward.

And fortunately no, we haven't lost Misha! She just needs a little hiatus due to personal reasons, but she's told me she'll be back soon as she feels up to it. :)
