I assume that map marker was already activated, which means that Lothran at least passed by the ruin before?

Lothran must have some sort of mad self-restraint. As soon as one of my adventuring types sees any undelved ruins, they can't wait to get in there! viking.gif

How nice to still discover new things after all these years!

Yes, it amazes me that we still find ruins unexplored even to this day! I think in 2018 we found no less than two unexplored ruins right beside a main road! ohmy.gif

Yes, Lothran had marked it on his map some years ago but it seems he didn't fancy to explore it. Some ruins demand the right time, I reckon biggrin.gif

A few years into our adventures we grew tired of dungeon diving as it was always more or less the same thing over and over in terms of how we did it. Instead we shifted gear into simply wandering the wilderness with only the occasional dive. This was such an occasion smile.gif

Lothran is now close to Skingrad. He left the Imperial City in the afternoon and after a pretty uneventful walk he entered the region known as The West Weald. The towers of Skingrad is visible and since it's evening and darkness is rolling in, Lothran feel it would be a good thing to get inside the mighty walls.


Good for whatever bad thing is out there, that is cool.gif

Uh oh. He's nearing Skingrad? Could Kahreem and Lotrhan finally pass by one another? Hee hee.

I know how to fix this. Yes. I do. Wanna hear how?

How many hours are in his game by now? Must be quite a lot.

Less than you'd think. I'm actually not sure as the hours reset and I haven't been too careful keeping track. But somewhere between 2500 and 3000 hours at this point. Not more than that as my gaming hours have dwindled over the years.

We're having fun now at Fort Linchal though! The necrodudes are Lothran's favourite playmates! biggrin.gif

Better hurry up. Or it could be 2023 before there's another possible chance.

Okay, I was guessing "Over 2000" so that's close enough.

Today was the day where Lothran went and had some fun with the vamps at Bloodcrust Cavern. Standard procedure: lure them out and fight them in the sun. Not much else to say about it xcept it was fun as always biggrin.gif

Lothran is now making his way out into the real wilderness in search of the isolated house S-E of Skingrad. This is one part of the map where one can really feel alone as there are no markers on the compass, no bandits or foresters and nothing else but trees and a few critters. If there is one place that reminds Lothran of Pale Pass, it is this area.

Nice tactics for those pesky vamipires - clever elf! I hope Lothie enjoys his time in the wilds around Skingrad.

Do vampires actually get any direct sun damage in un-modded Oblivion?

He will enjoy it when he gets to the isolated house; Lothran has playmates everywhere! biggrin.gif

At least that's true for the player character. I think.

Yes, it's true for PC, but IIRC you need a mod for NPCs. Renee will probably know for sure.

True, you will need a mod to add sun damage to NPC Vampires. Maskar's Oblivion Overhaul does it very well as it adds sun damage to NPC Vampires when they are caught outside during the day. Plus it adds NPC vampire health regeneration when not taking sun damage. Makes vampire hunting extremely dangerous.

In the vanilla game they do take sun-damage, but it is very slow. Much slower than it is for the Player-Character. evillol.gif Killing NPC vamps normally with weapons / spells / summons is still the fastest way to go. Lothran has the right idea though, at least in RP terms. A lot of my characters also lure them out into daylight.

Still, I use Maskar's Oblivion Overhaul, almost solely because it is the only mod which makes NPC sun damage the same as PC sun damage. MOO has tons of options, all of them can be toggled on or off. Like I said, I use MOO almost entirely for NPC vamps.

This past Easter was spent as usual in the no man's land around the isolated house. Wonderful area, and the only area around Skingrad with a lot of yellow flax. Red and blue are very common in the West Weald, but not yellow, so Lothran had to go specifically to look for that.

Only one bandit in the house, btw. A female Redguard. Lothran was hoping for at least two which is the norm, but not this time.

Lothran is now at Mortal Camp just south of Kvatch. On the way there he stopped by Shetcombe Farm, the very place where we first experienced the Abomb all those years ago.

Lothran is now in Anvil. More specifically he's resting on a bench at the stables. There has been no sign of M'aiq along the entirety of the Gold Road. We always look out for him, he's fun to talk to smile.gif

Next session will see Lothran conduct business in Anvil and maybe some exploring of the immediate surrounding area.
