In the absence of steel or iron, I'll hope Joan has a bit of protective enchantment on that nice red velvet blouse. tongue.gif

Renee - I remember the days when I would set-up my tri-pod and camera to take "real" screenshots. The TV broadcast banding was horrid.
IMO, Joanie is too cute. Kaleah's intense scowl is burning holes in my back.



Ghastley - I have a copy of Shezrie's Towns v1.1 I don't use. There were later versions 1.3 IIRC. I know that I've seen a Valenwood patch for Shezrie's Towns before but can't find it now. Can't find anything for Shezrie's Towns anymore.

20200220 Valenwood, The Road South, Level 32

By the gods, the gal’s face ain’t much but the plunging neckline and sheer skirt is sure to catch a Bosmer boy.
After a day of walking around browsing the temping wares we left Falinesti by the Eastern Gate.

Soon we came upon a bridge crossing a small creek. At the far end of the bridge stood a tall tower (MOO) nearly blocking the way across the bridge. Very strange way to construct a bridge, I thought.

Entering the Outpost of Horrors we were soon lost in a maze of corridors filled with traps and teleportation gates. Fighting all sorts of undead it took forever to make our way back to the exit.

Don’t you just hate it when you enter a room and a gate slams down behind you before the Ladies can enter? Up pop a bunch of drauger and skeletons (look closely, one’s got a tail, it’s a Khajiit (Creature Diversity)). Better call the Sisters of Insanity. Let them do what they do best.

Leaving the Outpost of Horrors with some unique runeskulls we continued east until we came to a junction in the road. Time to make a decision continue on to Arenthia or head south.

Someone asked, “When’s the last time you spent any time in Valenwood?”

“Oh it was back when I was searching for pieces of the Staff of Chaos. I remember buying the Ebony Tower Shield of Endurance at The Basic Accouterments in Tarlain Heights, the Adamantium Greaves of Intelligence at The Practical Sundries in Haven, and the Dwarven Helm of Invisibility at The Practical Gear Store also in Haven. Wonder if those places are still there? Let’s go find out.”

You must have looked like a court jester walking down the street,” Kaleah laughed as we turned south.

“Kind of I guess. I was young, just a teenager in man terms and didn’t pay attention to fashion.”

Maeva snicker and under her breath whispered, “Still don’t.”

We were all still laughing and joking as we passed Forest View Farm. Good companions and a nice walk on the road under the warm gaze of Magnus will do that. Saw a small flock of sheep but no shepards.

The road took us past a shrine dedicated to Arkay. The Old One stared silently down on us as we passed by.

It may have just been the way the sun shone on the statue and loose planks creaking on the wooden bridge but I swear the Old One was hiding his eyes, shaking his head and muttering, “Tsk, tsk, tsk,” as we crossed the bridge.

Que ‘The Road Most Traveled’.

A fun tour of some of the quirks of Valenwood Improved it seems. That is actually a lovely little black dress were it not for the overly plunging neckline and sheer skirt you pointed out. Looks like that tower bridge was a 'lowest contractor bid' job. tongue.gif

Yes does don't it. Goes to prove you get what you pay for. But then the constricted access point could prove useful for crowd and migration control.

What I found interesting was that the outpost is dynamically added by Maskar's Oblivion Overhaul (MOO). MOO couples well with Oscuro's Oblivion Overhaul and Realistic Leveling. The combination is... I don't know how to describe it the game is just so much better, more fun.

20200225 Valenwood, Moonmont
The road south is proves to be dangerous as we climbed into the mountainous region. The dense forest on either side of the road provided perfect cover for well concealed in bandits lay in wait for the unwary traveler. Today they chose the wrong quarry.

Rebels attacked us near the ruins of Alderin’s Watch. After defeating one we looked for others. Not finding any more rebels in the vicinity we checked the ruins of Alderins Watch. The door to the ruins was shut so tight we couldn’t open it. Perhaps we should inform the Imperial Council that central Valenwood is becoming a powder keg for rebellion? Naw, what do I owe those fools.

It wasn’t long before we reached Southwatch. The view from that vantage point is impressive. From Meadow Run and Eldan Root clear down to the Abecean Sea we could see all of the coastal forest of Southern Valenwood.

The road down through the mountain forest to the coastal plain below led us past the Ayleid ruins of Avar Lidh. We could see the ruins to our right. As we searched for an easy access to the ruins we somehow got ourselves lost traipsing through the countryside. Instead of the Ayleid ruins we found ourselves staring at another strange outpost on the outskirts of Moonmont.

At the same time we were staring at the Scavenger Outpost we were being eyed by two very angry spriggans. These poor creatures were not friendly like the ones we rescued in Vaermina’s testing grounds. Centuries of persecution by man and mer have warped my cousins’ senses. They attacked us on sight.

It took three of us to take one spriggan down. Only these Valenwood Spiggans don’t stay down. It rises from death to fight on. Really wanted to scream at it, “Why won’t you die?”

Reinforcements were called on to defeat two spriggans.

The Scavenger Outpost (MOO) is similar to the previous Outpost of Horrors only smaller. Maybe less than a dozen trap rooms filled with bats, cougars, wild boars, and some of the biggest meanest looking mud crabs I’ve ever seen. All this work and no exotic loot.

Leaving Scavenger Outpost we enter the town of Moonmont hoping to find a place to spend the night. Moonmont does have an inn, the Tipsy Elve but that’s about it. With an attitude we’ve come to expect from Valenwood Bosmer the publican informed us that we don’t belong here.

After some coaxing, for 10 gold the inn keeper let us a room for the night. With a wink and a nod to my Ladies he tossed me the key to a room upstairs, “Last door on the right.”

I knew there was something wrong when the entrance to the room was double-doored.

Stepping inside we found Jayna Madlem passed out on the bed. Oh, it’s one of those kinds of places.

Funny how at times like this I can clearly hear exactly what My Ladies are thinking. Yes, I’m pretty sure we had better leave.
