Heyo! Dragotech here! As promised in the Elder Scrolls Club thread, here is the roleplay. So as not to hold you guys listening to me, I am going to hand you off to Sheogorath who will introduce what is going on in the land of Tamriel. The Province of Cyrodiil to be exact.
Ha! Ha! Ha! Sheogorath here! I assume you all wonder why I have brought you here from your meager existences on a backwater plane of reality that none of us Daedric Princes really care about. Well you have no right to wonder! But since I am such a nice guy, I will let you in on the happenings of now, but first a little history lesson. As you may all be well aware, the Oblivion Crisis marked the end of the Third Era of Tamriel. Well that was all good and gritty. Martin Septim turned into a fiery dragon and forced Mehrunes Dagon into retreat and that ended the Oblivion Crisis. Fantastic! But it seems all is not going well in Nirn, and only fifty-two years after the Dragonborn stopped the World-Eater, someone seems to be reopening the Oblivion Gates. He is being a very naughty boy! Oh but I am sure you wonder why I brought you here. Nirn needs Champions to defend it, and watching Tamriel be crushed by a foolish mortal is no fun at all. Ha! Ha! So you still wonder why you? Simply because I can, none of my… associates care for your mundane plane of reality. There is no power to it! If I were to reach into the planes of my associates they would become fairly agitated. After all these peoples of the not mundane planes give us great power. Of course… I can’t send you like this. I will reshape you simply because I can… and you really could use it. No problem if I modify your shape and gender right? Of course I don’t really care what you do once you hit Cyrodiil, but if you do what I ask, maybe I will consider sending you back to that mundane plane you all call home… or not. So before I abandon you in Cyrodiil in a shape unfamiliar to you, I figure it would be fair to leave you with some guidelines.
Don’t talk to cabbages or cheeses that you don’t know. Strangers are fine though.
Shouting at the guards is a viable pass-time, but is frowned upon. So is stealing, killing, and, well, all the fun stuff.
Bandits are completely reasonable people; you just have to let your blade speak for you! Ha! Ha!
So there you have it. You will become trans-dimensional heroes, or villains, whose forms will be at my mercy. Oh and you may want to stop the second Oblivion Crisis before it gets out of hand… Unless, of course, death and enslavement are pleasant to your eyes, I leave you to your own poor judgment. If you see Ole’ Clavy while on your little adventure, be sure to tell him that Sheogorath said you are an idiot. Oh, what about home? I make no promises. Oh and… Try not to die! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Okay, Dragotech here… again. With the rules and stuff for the RP as well as additional information.
As Sheo there said, some wizard or Daedric Prince, is reopening the Oblivion gates. This is not exactly the best thing for Tamriel.
Sheo… It is my turn to speak. It is not known who is opening the gates or how, but why is somewhat simple. It is likely an attempt to take over and rule Tamriel. As Sheo stated, it does not matter exactly what you do in Cyrodiil, but helping stop the Oblivion Crisis is preferable. In addition, one of those things that Sheogorath did not care to mention is that the Imperial Legion seems to have lost Skyrim to the Stormcloaks. He also didn’t mention the Aldmeri Dominion seems to be taking advantage of that and preparing to launch an attack on Cyrodiil. Talos worshippers be warned. Of course, the White Gold Concordant would become a meaningless piece of parchment, worship of Talos may return if the Aldmeri Dominion is defeated, assuming they do decide to attack.
Who cares about the worship of Talos?
Sheogorath… Just shut up.
Soooo there is a lot more going on than just the second Oblivion Crisis. Oh and the stuff below this is important.

Yes, for those of you cowards that can’t take it like a man!!!

He is good at making friends after he successfully establishes contact. Once he gets talking. He tends to seem cold and emotionless when upset. He wonders at times if he will get sent back home. He decided that since he is stuck here for now, he will make the best of it, and may work on aiding Sheogorath's surprisingly noble cause. His fears are few, but he tends to not be fond of dying. He has a blind loyalty to those he calls friends.
