    Would you be interested in working on the Iliac Bay? We are in fact looking for skilled writers at the moment.

    Would you like to apply for the Iliac Bay project? We need dialogue writers.

    A script style. Generally how we do things is with numbered lists on google docs, with bold for player dialogue (in a tree format, showing how dialogue flows).
    Like this:
    1. Player Prompt 1
          1.1 Response line one
          1.2 Response line two
    2. Player Prompt 2
          2.1 Response line one
          2.2 Response line two

    No worries. Would you be able to complete a small task in order to apply for the Iliac Bay?
     
    I'd like you to address one of the below prompts, and demonstrate your skills in that area. You may include things like unlockable topics, custom greetings and trees. You should display a base knowledge of the TES world, a strong grasp of the English language and adhere closely to the style the vanilla game uses. Creativity in addressing the task is also valued.

    Prompts List:
    1. Write a conversation between two Bretons, one a knight/fighter and one a bard, on the nature of heroism and glory.
    2. Write dialogue for a Redguard sailor. Include a number of dialogue options. Potential topics include the state of the seas, life on a ship or background 
    3. The player encounters a travelling wizard on the roads. The player can ask questions that reveal why they are travelling, and where to. Dialogue might also reveal insights into the attitudes towards magic in High Rock, about the dissolution of the Mages Guild, history of Breton magic or how magical institutions operate.
    4. Write a short scene between a Redguard priest and an underling. Should be expository, and tell the player something about religion, the temples or Hammerfell politics.
    5. Construct a number of dialogue options for a vendor (the type is up to you) in Eastern High Rock. Possible topics of conversation include where they get there stock from, how business is or the Skyrim civil war.
    6. The player meets a Hammerfell nationalist in a tavern. Introduce their views in an intelligent way, and allow the player to engage in and feel invested in the debate. You may wish to utilise racial-specific dialogue or allow the conversation to turn ugly.
    The main idea is that while it seems you can write (your piece was quite enjoyable to me), we'd like to see how good you are at producing dialogue that could belong in-game, and follows the standards of Skyrim.
    Good luck!

    Your novel looks interesting, and your experience with screenplays and scripts sound promising. Would you be able to complete a small task in order to apply for the Iliac Bay?

    Hi!
    Iliac Bay may be interested in your writing skills. You seem to have a decent grasp of it, but we'd like to know if you are skilled at dialogue writing (if this isn't your forte, understandable, but it's main thing we are looking for).
    If you are interested, pleasee address one of the below prompts. You may include things like unlockable topics, custom greetings and trees. You should display a base knowledge of the TES world, a strong grasp of the English language and adhere closely to the style the vanilla game uses. Creativity in addressing the task is also valued.

    There's some interests thoughts in your pieces. HEMA experience could be useful in some ways I suppose, but our language stuff is mostly handled.
    Unfortunately, in your two pieces you haven't really provided evidence you can write appropriate dialogue in the style of Skyrim, which is what we are looking for.  The pieces aren't bad, it's just difficult to assess whether you've got the chops, because they aren't that relevant to the sorts of tasks you'd be doing. Perhaps you'd like to address one of the below prompts, an demonstrate your skills in that area? You may include things like unlockable topics, custom greetings and trees. You should display a base knowledge of the TES world, a strong grasp of the English language and adhere closely to the style the vanilla game uses. Creativity in addressing the task is also valued.

    Hey
    Your skills look like they'll be useful to the project. I've sent you a pm with details to help get you set up. I hope you join us on discord soon and introduce yourself.
    You may be able to put your CS knowledge to use on some software programs that are being worked on, and CK knowledge will be great for quests and other implementation tasks.
    See ya soon!

    Your work sounds very impressive, I don't think we've had someone like you before. I recommend coming onto our Discord, and somebody can get you set up. If it's Morrowind you are most interested in, I think they'll be glad to have you. Else I'm a Director at the Iliac Bay (High Rock and Hammerfell) and I think you'd fit in well there. Of course there are many other provinces that may catch your eye feel free to apply for any of those.

    Here's the link to our Discord, join up and ask around in #recruitment, and somebody will get to you. Look forward to seeing you around!

    Hey indridcold96
    I'm afraid what you've made there isn't really what we are looking for. We expect our modellers to be able to go through the full asset pipeline, from the model, to texturing, to in-game. We aim for Bethesda quality, or above, in all we do.
    Maybe practice your skills more, and good luck with your mod!

    Quite impressed with your portfolio. The active provinces are Atmora, Black Marsh, Cyrodiil, Elsweyr, Iliac Bay (High Rock and Hammerfell), Morrowind, Roscrea and Thras. I'm from Iliac Bay, and I'm we'd probably be able to use you. We have armour, creature and architecture concepts, some of which I hope will interest you!
