What roleplaying rules do you use for your characters in TES V? I would like to hear them. If this had been discussed here, I apologize for not looking before making this thread.

 

I personally do have some "rules" I use for my characters in skyrim. Both characters have some character story/RP reasoning behind this

 

For my Nord, their father taught them to fight and hunt, and lot of the skills tie to that and that includes how to make arrows and armor. They have to use gear they craft themselves (unless it is a weapon/arrow, but then I would still rather make my own lat game) due to the need to utilize animal pelts for leather and mining to make arrows for his bow. Also can not use Daedric//Dwarven/Orcish armor or weapons, since these would be material types they would not know how to make. Unsure of potion crafting at this time.

 

For my Breton, their rules come from being a noble. They cannot make their own equipment (ie no manual labor) because they would see it as below them and would rather pay a proper blacksmith for their work. They also must collect all the lore books due to a love of reading they developed as they grew older, wanting to learn all the stories. No brawling unless I need a follower for something that has it, as it is another thing she sees as beneath them.

In my current playthrough I'm trying reallllly hard to have some basic rules for my character. My character is an Orc with heavy armor, two-handed skills, and only sneaks to get close to the enemy before unleashing. He isn't good with animals, and is a little slow to react, so he is okay with having a follower. He intimidates when he can, and will only get better at Smithing without making something that he or his follower can actually use. With a follower, he's all about teamwork. My Orc doesn't do Alchemy, and so far only strikes with soul weaponry and applies soul gems to weapons.

That all sounds interesting. I know my nord currently will never enchant, while my breton is a bit on the fence, though the mod I use that brings in classes uses the oblivion spellsword, so she has a low enchanting anyways, so that may not be happening. Good to see that people are willing to follow even some basic rules.

My Character: A Nord alumni of the College of Winterhold, and a Destruction/Conjuration specialist.

-Rule 1: The Empire is Law; Law is Sacred. Always obey it.

-Rule 2: Aedra over Daedra.

-Rule 3: Treat the College of Winterhold like a normal college. Attend regularly.

-Rule 4: Never kill an innocent, and never kill in cold blood.

-Rule 5: Paarthurnax is not the enemy.

These are good rules, and a great way to present them. As my first post states, I try to have the rules for my characters tied to the characters themselves. My favorite is the never kill an innocent, and never kill in cold blood. Makes the most logical sense, though Nazeem makes that rule hard to follow.

My Argonian has several strict rules. He has no memory before arriving in Skyrim so he thinks himself placed there by Akatosh to bring order to the land. He believes Dragons aren’t evil, just misunderstood. Therefore he’s really nice to them but rude to most mortals, who he thinks below him. He also hates deadra because they always get in the way somehow.

Rule 1: Never kill a Dragon if you don’t have to.
Rule 2: Always try to piss off deadra.
Rule 3: I can do what I want. The Dovahkiin is above the law.
Rule 4: Kill Thalmor on sight if seen in Skyrim. They have no place here.
Rule 5: Never kill innocents. Dark Brotherhood targets don’t count.

Man, those are quite the rules. This is perfect.

lol. Simple, yet cool rules. I added similar rules to my characters. Where my Nord is willing to kill Thalmor where/when possible, my Breton kills vampires with prejudice. Both for personal/backstory reasons.

I wouldn't say I have rules in a strict list sense but each character has things they naturally will or won't do, for example my Dragonborn won't kill innocent people or steal and when she encounters someone in the wild she won't attack first unless she's certain they are hostile and I count her certainty separate from mine because I know things she couldn't.

There tend to be lots of little things between characters too.

I would not list those as rules for my characters, because those are some of the more general rules I follow, unless playing a thief or assassin (even then, my assassin characters would not do those things unless on a job).

 

For instance, my nord will not kill anything that is not a bandit/undead/animal/etc., UNLESS they are Thalmor, then Disporportionate Revenge Syndrome kicks in (his backstory has a rogue Thalmor kill his family for no reason other Nord = Heretic, no evidence needed).

Doesn't seem that different to me, though I get your point.

I honestly find most of my characters can't be summed up into black and white, hard and fast rules. The way they behave is often altered by circumstance. Although there are things they typically will or won't do or say.

That is sort of how my rules for my characters are: things they will or won't do based on the backstory I give them. My breton, as an example, is less likely to do 'manual labor' or make her own equipment as a part of her being a noble, seeing it as something 'beneath her' but is willing to pay a smith for their work (honed metal mod). My nord is more about self-reliance, so it likely to use most forms of armor and weapons that are not Daedric/Dwarven/Orcish (not sure about the contemporary elven armor, though knowing how to make that stuff is useful in the long term).

 

(this should be its own post but whatever): I did think about replacing my breton with an imperial, using the same rules as the breton, but decided against that idea.
