    Regardless of the game, this post is to share your favorite roleplaying character concepts.

    For instance, if you had a good D&D character concept, or a good Morrowind/Oblivion/Skyrim character, just whatever you want to share.

    For instance, in another thread I talked a little bit about my Morrowind character Gelbrennil, a Bosmer Destruction/Mysticism/Alteration mage that I roleplayed as an archaeologist and tinkerer that explored dwemer ruins and smuggled artifacts and books out.

    What kinds of characters have you made?

    I had a Skyrim character, Dunmer, named Aganinzil. She was a *gasp* necromancer: specialized in Conjuration, Destruction, Enchanting, and rather than maces like most NPC conjurers use, she went with a dagger (though I think I eventually went Bound Sword. And I think eventually Bound Dagger was added? I don't remember).

    I constrained myself to only use Frost effects and basically let my raised baddies do a lot of the work. That was a really hard character because I also never progressed the Dragonborn storyline so never had a Thu'um, I just wanted to be a regular *** necromancer.

    Finding black soul gems was also incredibly difficult, so of course I went to get Azura's Star and defiled it so it could hold black level souls.

    Anyway, old Aganinzil just tended to do creepy necromancer stuff. I always collect "thematic" books for my characters, so she had a bunch of these. I think she eventually went Vampire Lord as well.

    I have about 10 characters in Skyrim right now.

    A couple of notables:

    Valvius Vesuvius: Valvius is a divine battlemage who found himself shipwrecked in the Sea of Ghosts near Morthal while traveling from High Rock to Morrowind. He was raised with his mother, a widow, who worked as a servant in the Imperial City's White Gold Tower. He was raised to worship the Nine, but one day had a mystical experience that led to a Self-realization as being One with Anu, who is neither Aedra or Daedra, but beyond them. He built a home in Falkreath, but spends little time there, as he prefers to live at Windbreaker Chapel, an abandoned chapel near Morthal where he first took refuge after being shipwrecked. He wields two divine weapons: The Ice Blade of the Monarch, and Apotheosis, which is a high powered staff that wields fire, frost, and lightening.

    Veloth: Twin brother of Neloth from the Dragonborn expansion, he's a Dunmer Telvanni wizard and a master of conjuration. While Neloth has settled in Solstheim, Veloth has taken up residence on the border between the Rift and Eastmarch in a home called Tel Jerdein. He was raised with his brother in House Telvanni.
    And my "just for fun" character:

    Ri'skaht: Khajiit assassin who was orphaned in Elsweyr and raised by the Pahmar who trained him in the ancient mystical martial art of Katrate. He uses nothing but his claws to tear apart any man or mer who opposes him (or any that just raise his ire).​

    I like playing 'me' a lot. I've gotten pretty good at it after all these years. And I never expected to win anything, anyway. :)

    "Let me tell you about my D&D character" may be the biggest nerd statement imaginable.

    But, well, you asked. I've been playing pen and paper RPGs on and off since my last few years in high school, so I've acquired quite a stable of former characters. Most of them were short lived or not worth mentioning much because they weren't that interesting. These two are some of the more recent ones:

    Klik'tik'tek was a character I played in the D&D pen and paper RPG, in a game that was set in the Dark Sun setting, a world where magic harms the environment and has subsequently turned most of it into barely-habitable desert, with a fauna that's ridiculously dangerous even by normal fantasy RPG standards. He was a thri-kreen, a species of mantis people who lived as hunter gatherers. His entire family had been wiped out, and so he moved to one of the city states in search for a new way to live; what he would was the concept of private property and capitalism, and so he would start seeing everything as a contract. He was also a Barbarian class, so in fights he would shift into a total berserk bloodlust and brutally impale people with an oversized hunting spear. You could think of this guy as what would happen if Conan the Barbarian was an insectoid spear-chucker and had extensively read Adam Smith and Ayn Rand.

    Moonie (short for Moonchild Starlove Spheresong) is the most recent character I've been playing. She was from the Starfinder game, a space fantasy setting where fantasy species live in a magical solar system, using a rules system that's kind of off-brand D&D. Moonie was a Mystic, which is kind of a space priest who can do magic based on what cosmic force they are attached to, and she was a missionary to the Song of the Universe, a literal song she had been hearing/feeling growing up in a colony of space hippies. The party in that campaign served as agents for the setting's equivalent of the UN. I'd originally envisioned Moonie as a pacifist, so during combat she would mostly heal and buff people, summon monsters to aid her party, and only start shooting at people in self defense if I could help it.

    In therapy and conflict management, roleplaying is sometimes used as a way to practice empathy for different viewpoints, as people often take on a different tack when they have learned to put themselves in the other person's shoes.

    I've played assassins more than once and currently I'm playing a bard (well, currently I'm DMing in that group but I'll go back to playing him when the scenario is over and DM shifts to another player).
    I like the versatility of the "thief class" character and its derivatives.
    But ultimately a successful group is known by the diversity of its characters and how well they play together.
