    Anyone who plays a game like Skyrim will eventually get bored with doing things. Sometimes playing a different character fixes it, but sometimes it doesn't. When you eventually run out of steam, you have to invent new things to keep your interest. One of the things I've found to help is doing an RRP. Its an acronym for Realistic Roleplay. Basically it's a journal of your character's exploits. Depending on how you write it, you can really flesh out what your character represents. From things as simple as values to how they speak and do battle. Some people are more hardcore about this than others. For example, someone who is on up there in the hardcore crowd will actually document their character's death and start over if they die for whatever reason. Which is cool, but I've deemed it kinda unnecessary. So, without further adieu, I present my first attempt at an RRP for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

    Be warned though, there will be spoilers throughout the RRP. If you hate spoilers, don't read further.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH. I had started something similar to this when I first played Skyrim(That is, a log) but lost the file later and was unable to continue it. Gonna do one again once I begin Skyrim once more after getting a new rig :3~
    In case anyone's interested, you can read what little I wrote in the log below, be warned, there are grammar mistakes, and its just terribly done in general :V
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Gonna post my new log here once I start Skyrim again V: Got any tips btw, on how to improve this?

    Well, since most everyone knows about the tutorial, or have played through it a lot, I would just skip the tutorial. The exception being if you mix it up a bit. A few users on Gamefaqs actually modified it a bit. Like one of them wrote his character was caught by some bounty hunters and handed over to the Imperials during the execution.

    I also like the format. Its short and concise. Very few people do it this way and it works wonders when people do it correctly. You're on the right track, so try and improve on this.

    This is pretty cool. I wouldn't do it though, because there'd be a lot of entries like "Drank and made fortify restoration potions while repeatedly stripping and redressing in front of the court wizard and the Jarl's young children. Enchanted my gauntlets with +10000 pugilist damage. Punched a dragon back to Oblivion. Citizens of Whiterun questioned my nudity."

    You could do it that way, but you'd have to come up with a viable reason (Uber Sheogorath buff for instance).

    Well, in that case, my entry would be a lot shorter:
    "Was doing the fish stick when a dragon attacked Whiterun. Wabbajack, wabbajack, wabbajack."

    Sheogorath is insane, not eccentric (the game does a horrible job of conveying that) and if he wants to give you superpowers, you'll get the regardless of whether or not you want them.
