I would like to share a bit of information around a new RP idea my tiny little guild is taking to Daggerfall... basically RP/game experience as an NPC.
This is a "secondary" part of our (Ebonheart) guild - which is basically mature casual / social - but this concept might interest anyone looking for a bit of a Challenge PLUS a way to do RP that is a little off the "lets be superheros in Tamriel" track.Girls Knight Out
The concept is basically to gimp ourselves down to NPC Level: We start with low level characters and restrict them to only spending skill points in passives and crafting. Armour choices are limited to basic dress and cloth, and attacking / defending is basic mouse button stuff. If youre looking for a way to make more out of a mule/crafting alt account this might be something interesting for you... Its a way to experience Tamriel with the odds stacked against you - and arguably a more immersive experience than the typical 1-shotting deadra approach.
Having done a few trial runs now I have to say - questing just got real hard again. Things are slower and tougher and the sense of achievement (for simple things like finding a shard) just got a lot higher.
We haven't set out any fixed rules as yet - really we make it up as we go along, but so far it feels very much like a lifestyle choice, and speaking personally it makes Tamriel a lot bigger and richer when every little thing you do has to be measured against the real risk of doing it. This is how NPC's experience the world!
If this is interesting for you and you want to see it in action drop me a line in game (@Deloria]
