"The dragons, thought long extinct, have returned."
Thread 2 Opening Post

Skyrim Point Five is a play by post roleplay based off of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and hosted on Ten Thousand Rads.

As in the original, a group of vagabonds awaken to find themselves aboard a cart, being carried to execution for their various crimes. Saved in the nick of time by an attack from a large, black dragon, the group makes their escape and then must plan what to do from there.


The first thread can be found here and continued here. A briefly-lived sequel can be found here.

Skyrim Point Five contains examples of:

  • Blood Knight: Do'krin is inordinately pleased at the prospect of violence. Even fighting a dragon with scavenged equipment.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Thomuel's advances towards others in the party have got him nowhere, but that doesn't seem to bother him.
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: Valtir was unceremoniously killed by frostbite spiders after Gaara left the forum.
  • Dual Wielding: Do'krin. Every PC was awarded an iron sword after the execution was rudely interrupted by a dragon. Since Inari couldn't use it, Do'krin got an extra.
  • The Exile: Thom and Ilyssa. Thom because he got a little too ambitious (planning to take over all of Skyrim and/or High Rock) and Ilyssa because she got in trouble with the law in Daggerfall.
  • Napoleon Delusion: Bzothan, though he is a Dunmer, believes himself to be the last of the Dwemer.
  • Panthera Awesome: Inari, as a Pahmar-raht, is a tiger roughly the size of a horse.
  • Pragmatic Adaptation: Since there are numerous people playing, there are multiple Dragonborn. Also, both Ralof and Hadvar escort the party to Riverwood.
  • Sticky Fingers: Ilyssa, to the point where she had to go on the run through High Rock and at least part of Cyrodiil.
  • The Stoic: Bzothan shows little reaction to anything, though he does occasionally go off on Dwemer supremacy.
  • Took a Level in Badass: The dragons. They managed to burn Whiterun to the ground even before Helgen and they're using more shouts than they do in the game, such as Disarm.
  • You All Meet in a Cell: True to the original game. Averted with Thomuel since Helsie joined later on in the story.


How well does it match the trope?
