It reads like Integration needs to be uninstalled for Gavin, and then that would leave Elise unplayable.

There's also problems unwinding mod dependency chains that can mean taking others out. If you're not careful with install and load orders, it can be painful putting them back so an old character is playable again. I've broken a few of mine that way.

Yeah, Integration: the Stranded Light is basically an Oblivion overhaul on its own. It messes with character textures, spells, and even races, the last one being the most likely reason Elise's save would explode. (Specifically, it adds a racial power to Dunmer, and the mod page itself states that uninstalling the mod can potentially break a save because of that Power.)

I actually booted up Elise's save and played for a bit and it seemed fine, but then there were several other mods overwriting Integration's non-quest changes from the start. My last attempt at a mid-game uninstall ended with the save being immediately unusable, but there's always tomorrow. :v

I was just kinda sick of the altered spell effects and characters with faces that aren't "compatible" with OCO. :/

Are you saying Elisa is done because of this? Wait. "There's always tomorrow." So Elisa is not done.

I'm so confused. biggrin.gif

Elise's current save is fine, so she's still playable for now. I'm not sure if it'll stay that way, since it could easily break sometime in the future, based on my experience.

I've previously played with the mod and the save I played with it broke when I uninstalled it at least 2 years ago.

Elise knocked out a few more Daedric Quests, Sanguine's being more notable in that she got in trouble with the law and the only reason she's doing okay is because she can teleport. :v She may have let sticking it to Clavicus Vile and Molag Bal and getting away scott-free go to her head. If the amount of Infamy she has were quantifiable, it'd be at 3 now.

No one seems to think to check in Rosethorn Hall for her except Lucian Lachance. Incidentally, Eyja had a nice present for Falanu Hlaalu the next day.

==

Meanwhile Gavin's making his way to Kvatch on Blades business. Unlike Elise, he has no access to either Guild Guides or teleportation magic, so he's taking the long way there and doing some treasure hunting along the way. It's been a long time since I played vanilla Oblivion so idk if it'd be the same, but I'm glad that Maskar's Overhaul has bandages, otherwise I'd be going through a lot gold for potions. There are so many enemies in dungeons.

His last stop was at Ceyatatar, where an insane amount of mages waited for him so he's resting before pressing on deeper. The thing that will always keep me going back to Bretons is how tanky they can be thanks to the natural half damage they take from magic. Elise has been immune to it for some time, actually.

There was one incident of note when he first got there. As he was dealing with one of the mages that chased him outside the ruin, he ended up losing her. Before he could set out to chase her down before she recovered health, he heard a scream. A few moments later a brown bear came barreling up the steps, thankfully stuck on the root on the last step. One swipe of its claws did a lot of damage, so he decided to hang back and pelt it with arrows. As it began to wear down, Alessia Otus of all people comes out of nowhere and charges at the bear with her, uh, bare fists, with predictable results. Gavin gave it a stabbing with his sword to finish it off.

So today I was reminded why I love this game series.

Aww, Alessia made a bad decision there! Oops.

Those daedric quests sound interesting.

Joan of Arkay is in Fort Rayles, which is full of conjurers and daedra. She is with one of her Battlehorn followers. Joan keeps this guy in a room on his own. If things get too tough for her, all she has to do is run back to where her knight is hidden, and now she's got some instant help. viking.gif Since Joan hasn't got a full armor suit (her steel cuirass got destroyed), she's been relying on her shiny knight's help quite a lot.

Joan's game is pretty aimless these days. She's not doing any official quests or anything, she's merely going from lair to lair, attempting to earn money so she can keep improving Battlehorn. Her game is at 136 hours, and my personal goal is to get it up over 300, so the A-bomb shows up and I can finally transfer her to PC!

What do you mean, off-grid? How are you communicating in your post?

Yes, I'm still playing. I don't know why, I just can't get enough of this game. Like for instance, Lady Saga is still around, and she's been living in Leyawiin lately. She still lives in Cingor's house, and gets sent off by the count to take down various dungeons in the vicinity.

It's winter in her game (Morningstar) and I guess it's sort of like Lothran / Bruma, except that Saga's going to be spending her in-game winter down south, not like Lothran, who spends Earth-time winter up north.

Hope that made sense. laugh.gif

Yup. Lothran follows my Earth calender more than Cyrodiil's laugh.gif

*THIS JUST IN*

I just saw it. What did you see? I saw the Animation Bomb's first effects in Joan of Arkay's game. biggrin.gif And yeah, I'm smiling. I'm psyched!

Usually the A-bomb is a bad thing, but in this case, I'm looking forward to it.
