I am currently lurking and considering joining this forum, as I am active on several RP forums already. However, before I make a character, I was wondering if it is possible to RP as a Dwarf Noble, of their own noble house, or a member of an existing once?

Technically, yes. However, as a noble dwarf you would be confined to Orzammar which is one of the less active areas of the board. Being unable to leave Orzammar you would have difficulty finding anyone to RP with which somewhat defeats the purpose of an RP. An alternate option is you could make a character who was formerly a noble but has been exiled to the surface - like my character, Carina.

I would, and I know this sounds silly, like to RP in the Dwarf Capitol naturally, and I know that this restricts my activity elsewhere. However, would it be possible for me to role-play my character having obtained special dispensation to venture onto the surface for diplomatic missions, or indeed to venture close to the surface to meet with other characters?
Alongside that, I would also love to do threads that consist of a chain of letters between my character and another (surface dwelling) dwarf?
Are there many Dwarf characters, and what would one need to do to found a Noble House?

Hey there! Welcome to WV!
Unfortunately, we have very few dwarf players at the moment, and I believe it is due to the harsh customs that are present in lore for the dwarves. Any dwarf that goes to the surface is no longer considered part of Orzammar society. Which the games do break this lore at points, its been reinforced more than once in other lore sources. With Bhelen on the throne, we hope to be able to give dwarf nobles and other castes the opportunity to leave Orzammar without losing their status. At the moment however, we have not finished those story devices that will allow for it to happen. It is on our docket, we just have not finished it.
I know that would make it hard for you to roleplay with others, so I would suggest either two things. One, making a exiled noble as Carina suggested, or two, making a different character concept and getting to know our community until the lore change occurs.
Hello, it's nice to see two people interested in helping me out here!
I see what you're saying, and it is interesting that the dwarf king is trying to resolve the issue with the surface dwellers and the traditions around them. Would it therefore be a possibility for my potential noble character to assist the king in his plans to revoke this traditions around the surface dwarves?
I can see a lot of roleplay potential around that, which sounds like a fun and exciting way to start off my time here at this site.

JWhiteyGames: Hello! And thanks! I did. I was just looking to see if anyone was on in general. After reading the guidelines and peeking a bit more though, I realized the box isn't used the same as before.
