Dance with Daedra
DwD is a site based on the Elder Scrolls universe, taking place few years after the ending of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It goes AU with its setting however; instead of game canons, we only have player created original characters. In time, we hope to expand our playing field beyond the borders of Skyrim, to other provinces of Tamriel as well.
Fourth era, year 203.
The Last Dragonborn has sailed to Akavir after coming out victorious against Alduin the World-Eater and Miraak the First Dragonborn.
Emperor Titus Mede II was assassinated, supposedly by Dark Brotherhood, and the Imperial forces, spread thin as they are, have been pulled out of Skyrim to temper any possible unrest in Cyrodiil. The perseverance of Nords proved victorious, as Stormcloaks are now the ruling force in the deep north of Tamriel.
No High King or Queen has been crowned however, partially due to the bickering between Jarls. Whispers of the Thalmor trying to influence the selection of a new sovereign are circling, but most of Skyrim's natives believe a new day of freedom has dawned.
While dragons have seemingly all but died with the departure of the Last Dragonborn, the land desperately still needs protectors. Villages and towns lack the forces to deal with roving bandits and mysterious monsters hunting people in the night, and criminal organisations grow in power, having pounced on the opportunities a fractured Skyrim provides.
