Who we are
Tamriel Hardcore Role-Play is a out-of-character community for players that strive for good stories, a strong interest in lore, enjoying balanced characters and seeing appeal in realistic consequences to their character's actions.
We are a collective of dedicated and highly motivated players, agreeing on more strict rules and guidelines than common role-play rules.
While we do have an in-character hub, we strive to explore Tamriel in full! For that we encourage everyone to interact with all other IC and OOC communities that exist outside of this OOC hub, too.

What to expect from us
  • Characters played as realistic and strictly bound to lore as possible, for a strong immersion into the Elder Scrolls Universe.
  • Collaborative narratives driven by character actions, yours included, with consequences both good and bad.
  • Mindful and balanced role-play. It is about everyone, and not someone.
  • Helping you to learn lore and role-play if you are new to ESO or even role-play itself, and a place to try hard-mode RP.
  • Very dedicated and active player base.
  • Hardcore guidelines on top of common role-play rules for a stronger immersion. Safe-mode reduced: character death is not the goal, but possible outcome.
  • In-character actions to be the prefered way to handle everything, if practical. Be that spreading rumours, organizing events/stories and more.
  • Our in-character hub is Wind Keep, and any other place people of the community role-play at.
  • Community voting to empower everyone having their possibility to shape the community.

What we expect from you
  • Nothing if you are new to ESO or role-play. Our community will gladly assist you, provided you are willing to learn.
  • Willingness to accept community guidelines and established setting to ensure homogeneity of our role-play environment.
  • The will to play as immersive, realistic and dedicated as possible as The Elder Scrolls allows us to.
  • Acceptance to improve your role-play and knowledge anytime.
  • Being mindful and having a sense of balance for your own and other player's fun.
  • Always accepting that whatever your character will do will cause consequences, be they good or bad.

General Behaviour
  • Be as nice to others as you want them to be to you.
  • Always support new players, especially those new to ESO RP.
  • Always take other's hints for help or mistakes as good will and think about it.
  • Communication is the key. In case of problems with someone or something, speak up. Those that remain silent, shall stay silent.

Chat
  • Chats remain unregulated in the belief that we are all adults and know how to close the chat if we feel annoyed of it.
  • For RP promotion, the Officer Chat shall be used. This allows highlighting, and filtering for those having normal chat turned off.


Role-Play
  • Strictly separate IC and OOC
  • No Meta-Gaming (using OOC knowledge IC)
  • No Power-Gaming (playing unfairly or unrealistically strong characters)
  • No God-Moding (forcing actions on others or letting them no chance to react)
  • No Lore Breaking (breaking the game world's setting and rules)
  • Role-play is about team play and cooperation. Be considerate about your character's powers and give others a chance to let their characters shine equally.
  • Play your character realistically and mindful.
  • Accept the consequences of your actions.
  • Research how a type of character would need to be played before RPing it. Example: How a real assassin would act. Or a real sword fighter would fight.
  • Character death always is possible. However not without recieving at least one clear warning either IC or OOC to give chances for escape.
  • In critical RP PvP situations, always ask a third, independent party to play OOC arbiter to arbitrate in unclear situations.
  • Consider your character's in-game visuals as your avatar and how others shall see them. If visuals differ from how they shall appear IC, it is your responsibility to emote it to everyone.
  • Try to do everything IC instead of OOC. Including promotions of events and alike by rumours etc.

Lore
  • Know all the lore your character should know IC, too. Example: Playing typical Nord means to know at least all lore a typical raised Nord should know.
  • Always research or ask someone before doing something you are not sure about in the lore.
  • Preferably research directly in lore books, quests, dialogues and official Bethesda/Zenimax Online statements. Do not instantly believe UESP summaries. Do never believe Elder Scrolls Wikia.
  • Lore gaps of any size or unclear lore must be interpreted with uttermost care, or avoided completely.
  • Always justify your interpretation by using either clear and present lore, or common sense and logics derived from real world examples, if applicable.
  • Head-canon and creative freedom is possible when lore is entirely missing or left open, but it must blend into present lore. To make sure, it should be discussed and agreed on pre-RP.
  • Role-play and interpreted lore must never contradict known lore.

Interacting with Outsiders
  • Play according to common public role-play rules.
  • Adapt to their rules, or avoid/ignore them.
  • Outsiders going to move into our RP space must be informed about our rules. This is to uphold a very high and consistent quality of RP, which they must respect. Otherwise they should reduce their interaction within our RP space to a minimum to avoid inconsistencies.

  • Under consideration of the community whether rules and guidelines are kept and the player fits in.

  • Can invite new players.

Nonattendance counts into no option.

Community Voting
  • Central in participating everyone in decisions by the community for the community.

The default hub location for the community is Wind Keep.

However, any place on Tamriel can become a hub temporarliy, depending on where people currently do role-play.

Also take into account all other in-character hub locations provided by any OOC and IC guild as it fits best to your role-play.
