Battlehorn Castle would be fun to add to Lothran's game. Guess I could if I wasn't stuck in my old ways tongue.gif


-------------------

The Dunmer has spent his day wandering Blackwood. He started out in Blankenmarch, went east-south and stopped by one of Renee's character's treasure trove in the hollowed-out rock. And yes, all 600 gold was there when Lothran left the site wink.gif

He then followed the shoreline to Leyawiin and entered the gates when sun was setting. He took a stroll around town followed by a visit to the local Fighters Guild to repair his gear. After a good night's sleep, it is now morning and I reckon a visit to most everybody is on the agenda.

So things are slowing down in ESO so I can pick Oblivion back up where I left off.

When I last left Elise, she had gotten pretty bold about abusing her power. After a VERY brief stint in jail and an exciting jailbreak, she's caught up in some Blades business. She's positively giddy.

Meanwhile, Gavin's thinking about upgrading his equipment to better face the challenges ahead. He didn't have the best time in his first trek across the Deadlands, and since he's sure he's going to have to jump through one of those gates again soon, his main concern right now is to get access to a working forge and scrounge up some materials. At the very least, some wood and silver for arrows. Nearly getting mauled by a group of Daedra every five steps because he used up all his arrows getting to the tower is not something that'll happen again if he can help it.

Do you have a mod that adds crafting?

Most of my Oblivion characters weren't archers, and gathered way more than they wanted from mob drops. Some of the Dremora had more than we could carry, and there was that one Khajiit working with Claude Maric that had stupid quantities of them. Selling them one at a time for maximum mercantile experience would have been a pain without TQP.

Edit: Looked up "that Khajiit" and identified him. He's well worth leaving until your endgame and then "harvesting". biggrin.gif

I'm using Maskar's Oblivion Overhaul, yes. :U Lets you craft regular armor and some unique things as well as mine the materials from caves (randomly generated, replaces rocks, it's as chaotic as it sounds).

But idk, it might be patches or Maskar's, but i can't seem to hang on to many of them, which sucks 'cause it's his only form of ranged fighting. Thankfully, he DOES seem to regularly loot arrowheads and feathers for fletching.

I am finally back onto Beth gaming after taking a needed break. I have been playing Far Cry Primal, Rise of the Tomb Raider and Witcher 2.

Wow! It is so nice to be back in Cyrodiil. The dungeons are great fun to explore and to finally play a game that has proper shadow/darkness is so lovely. Light spells/rings actually mean something in this game and it is a pleasure to spy that chest or ayleid cask in the corner. Skyrim and FO4 are horribly boring with their perpetual twilight both indoor and out.

The other thing I noticed was the decision making that enters your head while playing. Do I go left, right, straight ahead or just leap up onto that balcony? I cannot recall one Skyrim cave having any options except a very linear journey from start to finish.

Bim-Seel (3rd level Argonian) is having fun exploring the ruins and forts of Cyrodiil. Vilverin, Crowhaven and Beldaburo are ticked off so far. Just another 200 to go!

He even swiped himself a neat looking statue and was relaxing beside the lotus lilies when a bald butler paid him a visit. He did not seem at all concerned that a drenched lizard would soon drip water on his nice carpet...

This is very true. Don't get me wrong, I love Skyrim, but almost all the lairs are linear. They have more detail, true, and they have little plots in them sometimes that surprise me, but the actual dungeons are all one-way, in and out, often with a convenient door which puts the character back in the very beginning.

That's one thing I like about Cyrodiil's dungeons; they require memory skills to get around. And Logic.

Anyway, I haven't added to this thread in a while, even though I've still been playing. Lady Saga has been living almost exclusively in the Leyawiin area. She's got a cottage of her own, and does a lot of respawning bounty quests for the county. viking.gif Her ultimate goal is to collect enough money, and eventually she will return to Valenwood. I'll need to install the Valenwood mods. Once she's back there, I will made some sort of village where she grew up. She'll return to this village, and then donate most of her riches (thousands of gold) to the village's elders.

Neat, huh? I just thought of that the other day.

Sounds like she's doing a Lothran migration but to the south instead biggrin.gif

Thanks Lothran, Buffy and Lady Saga. biggrin.gif

Renee, you are so right about those convenient little passages back to the entrance. Man they drive me up the wall. I always felt that if a Skyrim dungeon-cave was connected to a quest it could be quite large, if it was miscellaneous then it would only be a 10 minute dungeon. In Oblivion I could get lost/absorbed in some off the beaten path dungeon for one or two hours that had no connection to anything before re-emerging into the daylight. Yes, most of the designs are repetitive but they are huge!

Bim-Seel is now wearing sexy leather pants (as any self respecting Argonian would do laugh.gif ) and he is using a neat conjured zombie to back him up. Nothing magical at the moment, and only a touch frost spell to knockout down the foes. Last night I was swinging with a iron dagger at a warrior bandit with a war hammer. His reach was 10 times longer than mine and made the battle a comical laugh. laugh.gif

For those wondering, Bim-Seel looks like a cousin or brother to Teekeeus at the Chorrol MG. They both have the same green facial marks. I must RP that they are related. That should be interesting!

No ranged attack? You need something to let you back off and let the zombie take the heat. And go make magicka pots for more zombie up-time.

Sheesh, you can't teach these young necromancers anything these days. biggrin.gif

Yeah, I always hold off ranged attack at the start of any play through. I mostly focus on raising block and armorer, getting armorer to 50 as quickly as I can. Plus they both help with endurance at level up too. smile.gif

At this point I need more gold to build the enchanter at Frostcrag Spire later on, as I am a sucker for that drain speed bow that our lovely Buffy always uses. There is plenty of time later for the deadly sniper build. Woo hoo!

Bim-Seel has set up his first home. Deepscorn Hollow. It suits his Argonian tastes quite well, plus he has noticed that the heat and cold play with the arthritis between the scales in his knees. The swamps of Leyawiin are a very nice place to relax.

He is now 4th level and has just cleared out Darkfathom Cave and Onyx Caverns. The bandits of Fort Blueblood attacked him in the dark and paid the price in a very gory way. Rather than exploring it he slipped away into the swamps. Bim-Seel also broke two lockpicks on a very easy lock. Though he is not talking about that. laugh.gif

You got that right. She's always loved the Blackwood area the most.

Pseron Wyrd just called, he's got a new Argonian crush. wub.gif (Wyrdo would always say he had a crush on Dar-ma on the old forums).

Pseron Wyrd. You are bringing back old memories now. Those days were great- discovering new things every day about Oblivion on those forums. Just when I thought I knew everything- bang- something amazing was discovered. smile.gif

Ahh, the lovely Dar-Ma. And City-Swimmer. And Kud-Ei sipping her cup of tea.

Does Skyrim even have npc's? Or just plain and boring ones? laugh.gif

Bim-Seel is now exploring up into the hills above Cheydinhal. Quickwater Cave has been cleared out- I think my Argonian must have something against Slaughterfish, must be a food-chain thing... laugh.gif

He is leveling up his blunt at the moment.

After a long trek into the Valus Mountains Bim-Seel's right knee is now playing up horribly. He is no longer the young Shadowscale that emerged from the depths of Blackmarsh those years ago. Although on reflection the other problem with his knee is the moment that he got it caught in the jaws of a Timber wolf. That did not help. laugh.gif

The disappointment there was that the mangy cur also ripped a large hole in his leather pants and they had to be replaced. He is now dressed in bright red bloomers. laugh.gif

The battle with the wolf was quite embarrassing. The flea biter had cornered him in the dark and pulled him quickly to the ground. Crawling back outside and dropping items as he went (the battle took place inside Fanacas) he slumped against a tree and healed himself. Hissing in anger he re-entered the Ayleid ruin and explained to it that violence was unnecessary. The wolf died a horrible death. laugh.gif

Even worse was the wolf gave him the helljoint disease. My Argonian. With a disease. How insulting!

Well, at least Bim-Seel managed to grab a second Ayleid statue. Woo hoo!

Hello again Winter Wolf!

How about some pics of Bim-Seel so we can see his red bloomers? wink.gif

As a Shadowscale, will he join the Dark Brotherhood?

Lopov! Thanks for the welcome back. smile.gif

I must duck over to the other forum pages to see what you are playing now. No doubt it will be something that involves a cool clothing mod, or is that a lack of clothing mod? laugh.gif

I am playing Bim-Seel on 360 so no pics this time. Plus no mods either... I do have the game on PC but I am too lazy to set things up. He will do the DB quest line at some later point. I am just dungeon exploring for now.

Bim-Seel is now 7th level and has headed off to visit Skingrad. He has heard from a cute blonde Bosmer riding a huge black horse that Skingrad is the place to be- with the most delicious Tamika wine. Having a chat with Davide Surilie convinced him that Tamika is indeed the best!

The people at Skingrad must have been impressed with his red bloomers as they invited him to sample as many wines as he wanted. Bim-Seel was last seen resting under a tree with a hat over his snout.

The day before an Imperial Legion horseman helped him lay the smackdown on the 3 Skirmisher Goblins outside Derelict Mine. Most times I find this to be the hardest low level battle in the game. This time it was a breeze. biggrin.gif

I play Fallout 4 ATM for the first time but in fact I mostly play with my newborn daughter so I don't game regularly. smile.gif I have only three or four mods so far, nothing clothing involved yet, so far I don't have any real need (nor time) to mod Fallout 4.

Tamika's is better and Tamika is also prettier than Surilie brothers. wink.gif

I hear that one paranoid Bosmer is happy because there's a stranger in town.
