20200803 Gweden - Sugar the Sweet Orc, Hircine’s Virgin
Bravil is a closed mouth place. Walking around town we ask everyone we meet about any rumors concerning someone trying to sell an axe. No one has anything to say. Took awhile but we finally found someone who knows something, S’Krivva. We’re told the axe has no value, no one would buy it. The thief took it with him to Fort Cedrian on the banks of the Corbolo River.

It was a calm day so we walked across the Niben Bay and up the Corbolo River to the Crestbridge were we found the ruins of Fort Cedrian. The ruins have been taken over by marauders and raiders. It was a fight from the moment we stepped through the entrance. Down in the mausoleum we enter a room and the battle intensified dramatically.

At the far end of the upper level a raider fury was standing over a body. The Jandaga fights his way across the upper level as the raider begins to loot the lifeless body. After the marauders and raiders were subdued we discovered Sugar’s axe on the body of the unfortunate bandit. Looks like Sugar’s axe thief’s asking price was too high and the raider made a slashing counter offer.

Running back to Harcane Grove with Sugar’s war axe in hand Jandaga worried about the Ladies reaction to him helping Meena lose her virginity. He brought up the subject of how best to get Meena and the Unicorn to Anvil and what needed to be done after that. The Ladies all agreed that Jandaga should do his duty to save the Unicorn. But, there’s a tension in the little band of hippies. Though they wouldn’t admit it the Ladies don’t like the idea of sharing their Jandaga with anyone.

In a typical faerie carefree attitude it didn’t seem to bother the two sylphim elves the Cute Elf Maeva or the lopped-eared Moonshadow Elf, Pym. Maeva said, “Someone has to make the sacrifice to save the Unicorn. Just don’t make a habit of it.”

Kaleah being Daedra reacted rather stiffly, “Why should I care about the affairs of mortals”. There was something in the way she turned away as she said it that suggested differently.

Meena was still in the grove awaiting our return. After listening to our plan she looked the Jandaga up and down before smiling in agreement.

“Satisfaction guaranteed,” Maeva said with a wink.

(Our attempts to walk to Anvil all failed. The roads and countryside were thick with bandits, marauders, assassins, and other dangers and every time a sword was drawn the Unicorn went into attack mode and died. I didn't try summoning a horse and riding there as the ladies can't ride.)

With a wave of Jandaga’s hand the party was transported to the outskirts of Anvil.

With a naked Meena riding the Unicorn, we walk the short distance to the stables. Ernest was keenly interested upon hearing of our little project. His fee for the stall and the use of his bedroll; some coin and a ringside seat to watch.

Getting the Unicorn into the stall and shutting the gate was the most difficult thing and for a moment I didn’t think Meena was going to dismount.

Maeva and Pym, both did a poor job of holding back their snickering as Kaleah adjusted the collar of Jandaga’s black finery. Looking him in the eye she gave him a squeeze as she said. “Feache you can Ring My Bell anytime. Now get in there and make us proud.”

Pym pulled a potion out of her pocket. Giving it to the Jandaga she signed that it was just a precaution for Meena to drink.

As the Jandaga introduced Meena to the bedroll the Ladies setup a perimeter to ensure privacy for the couple. Poor Ernest didn’t get to see a thing.

A couple hours later… the Jandaga gets up to see Pym calming a hornless ex-unicorn. On the ground in the stall next door lay a unicorn horn. Good, the Unicorn is no longer horny but where’s Meena? Kaleah and Maeva tell Jandaga the news. They had offered Meena a position at Gweden and she enthusiastically took it. She’s on her way there now.

“OK,” was all Jandaga could say as he thought, “How did the Ladies find out about the no workplace dating clause?”

All's well that ends well! The things a hero has to do. I chuckled of the conspiring elves putting Meena to work at Gweden. After all, four's company; five's a crowd. smile.gif

You have disco in your game? laugh.gif cool.gif

Congrads on surviving Fatback Cave, yes I am way behind. I'm behind everything though, including my own storywriting for Fallout 3. sad.gif Anyway, I don't remember Fatback at all during OVB. I remember Memorial Cave, I remember Linchal and a couple other vampire locations.... Odd that Fatback doesn't bring anything back.

Wow. Look at that rainbow in the final picture. How come I never see that in my game? blink.gif I think probably because rainbows are being swallowed up by some other mod, and I need to figure out Bash to get them to show up. Unfortunately to this day I've never been able to get Wrye Bash to work in Oblivion without instant CTD-on-launches. mad.gif Skyrim? Smashing Skyrim is something I began doing from Day one. But Oblivion's WB program ... I'm obviously not doing something right.

Look at that intruder. And in a Dark Brotherhood uniform at that. Invading Roland's confines. What was he or she thinking??? ph34r.gif

Yes, and those familiar will note that weapon is only effective against the Rabbit of Caerbannog, aka the Black Beast of Arghhh.

...And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, "O LORD, bless this Thy hand grenade, that with it Thou mayest blow Thine enemies to tiny bits, in Thy mercy." And the LORD did grin, and the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths and carp and anchovies and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit bats and large chu... [At this point, the friar is urged by Brother Maynard to "skip a bit, brother"]... And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it."[

It's just a rabbit!

Arcadian - Three companions is just about right. More and the game at times performs badly. Now at with Jandaga at level 30+ three may be making the game too easy.

Renee - Dsco yes, the Ladies and I like to boogie but NO ducks. That is one of the best rainbow shots I have. Probably nothing you already know and do but I'm using WryeBash 307 standalone executed by OBSE launcher . Better Rainbows sorts rather high in the load order, above All Natural. Wish I could help,

ghastley - Those are the most annoying instructions ever. wacko.gif Really like this your mod. I know it probably wasn't intended for a male character with several jealous female companions and I'm not the best writer especially when compared to the excellent writers I've found here so I hope you don't mind me having a bit of fun with it.

20200812 Gweden - Silanu the Dark Dominatrix, Orrey – Dagny’s Camp
With Meena on her way to the Gweden Brothel the most logical move would be to return to the Imperial City and deliver the axe to Sugar.

A quick stop at the stops and then off to Gweden we go. There are now five girls working at Gweden; Maeva the Buxom a Nord, Darwen a Bosmer, Virgilia an Imperial, Meena a Breton, and Selena a Redguard.

The new basement addition looks nice. More room to entertain the steady flow of Imperial guards willing to pay for the privilege of inspecting the facilities.

Things could be better though. According to Tsarrina some clients would like a little bit more spice in their dish. She wants us to find a kinky Dunmer to disciple the naughty boys.

Say kinky Dunmer and thoughts raced straight to Falanu in Skingrad. As a good a place to start as any.

After discussing the future of Gweden with Tsarrina we return to Anvil to spend the night at Benirus Manor. Let’s hope Elenya is in a better mood this time. She is and when presented with her share of the gold she is all smiles again.

A good night’s sleep and we’re off to Skingrad to talk to Falanu. There are rumors floating around in Skingrad about a large chest. When we ask Falanu about the large chest rumor she says it’s her sister Silanu, who’s staying upstairs. Just like that Falanu hands me the key to her sister’s room. Well, might as well go up and talk to Silanu.

Holy Moly! Talk about augmentation gone wrong. Instead of freely give out the key to Silanu’s room; Falanu should be charging admission for the privilege.

It was obvious the Silanu has a hard time finding clothes that fit. One deep breath and her bustier was ripped to shreds. She didn’t seem to mind that very thing was out in the open. In fact she appeared rather proud of her unusual dimensions.

Silanu’s story was that she has been accused of murdering one of the Emperor’s illegitimate sons. She needs help to clear her name. We’re pretty sure Silanu is the kinky sort that we are looking for. So if we can find any evidence at the burned out shop on the Red Road that can help her maybe she’ll come to work at Gweden.

Leaving Skingrad we decide to travel through the Colovian Highlands to Chorrol. Passing by Dagny’s Camp we waved a friendly greeting to the occupant. Intending to ask to share the fire for the night Jandaga approached the camp. He hadn’t even gotten two words out of his mouth when the fool Nord balled up his ham sized fists and attacked the Ladies.

On the idiot’s body we found another missing artifact for Bothia, a Dwemer Coherer. Another Dwemer artifact, we now have three how many did Bothis say were stolen?

“Five, only need two more.” Maeva reminded everyone.

Nightfall was approaching. Deciding to take advantage of the four tents the little band settled down to spend the night. Bright and early on the morrow the plan was to continue the search for remaining bandit camps.

Gweden seems to be coming along well. Silanu definitely seems to have the touch of ghastley about her. . . . tongue.gif

20200813 Dagney’s Camp, Auriel’s Retreat
Night came to Dagny’s Camp bringing with it crystal clear starry skies. Maeva and Pym had retired to their chosen tents for the night. For awhile, Kaleah and I sat watching salamanders dancing in the glowing embers of Dagny’s campfire.

Pointing skyward Kaleah leaned close and said, “My pretty little Feache, just think, each of those points of light is the realm of a daedric prince. There’s more than you can count and I can show them to you.”

“Don’t tease me like that, Kaleah.”

Kaleah, feeling an odd sensation of hurt and confusion responded, “What? It’s true and that lamp in the daytime sky is a huge hole that leads to even more such realms.”

“No, no, it’s the ‘my pretty little Feache’ thing. Makes me feel like a cheap toy. I may be easy but I ain’t cheap.”

“Ah, hahahahahahaha,” she laughed. “That I know, my dear Feache. But there’s no denying that you are a child of the Fae, and you are short, and to me you are pretty. It’s a term of endearment of the heart, much like you referring to us as ‘My Ladies’.”

“Oh, I never thought that daedra held emotional attachments.”

“We can and do when there is a mutual deep respect between two daedra of equal stature. My Feache, I do not lie when I say there would be a hole in my heart as big as Magnus in the sky, should anything happen to you. As would be in yours should anything happen to any of us.”

“Yes, I think I understand.” The Jandaga nodded as he continued.
♫ My boat sails stormy seas
Battles oceans filled with fears.
At last my port's in view
Now that I've discovered you.
Oh I'd give my life so lightly
For my gentle ladies.
Give it freely and completely
For my ladies.♫

“Oh my Feache,” swooned Kaelah. Fanning herself gently with her wings she continued, “Quite the minstrel you are. I’m impressed. Power enough to make one wonder who’s the seducer here. Come with me.”

She takes him by the hand and leads him to her tent. Handing the Jandaga a book she calls him by his name, a
name no Man or Mer should hear and says, “There is something I want you to see.”

Uh, oh this is serious

She stares deeply into the Jandaga’s eyes as she holds him by the shoulders and intones a little spell.
♫ We'll fly his astral plane
We'll take a trip around the bay
I'll bring you back the same day
Xero-Lygie, Xero-Lygie♫

Kaleah releases Jandaga. Turning around Jandaga is amazed by what he sees. A land like no other lay in splendor before him.

Auriel's Retreat, a walk in a mystical park.

Merchant Town on the water.

Crossing the bridge as we leave the town.

Falls shrouded in mist.

Strange carvings on the cavern walls.

An abandoned house to call home.

Temple of Knowledge.

Come on sweetie, dream time is over. No more Unicorn slaying, it’s time to get up and get to work.”

20200820 Orrey –Boreal & Varus camps, Sutch Village
Once again the little band of hippies is on the move.

“Well Kaleah that was not what I expected when you said you were going to take me places I’d never been. What was that place?”

“The Retreat, was formed out of an Aetherius pocket by Auriel from the house of Stormwind, sorcerer of the once glorious Ayleid Empire. Nothing you couldn’t do yourself with just a little effort. Stupid Mer , he took a shortcut and made a bad deal with Hermaeous Mora. Read the book, you’ll see. You’ll also learn how to go there anytime should you desire. There is more to it than what little you saw.”

“Who is Xero-Lyg?“

“One of the Magne-Ge. Little known sister to Meridia named in the Exegesis of Merid-Nunda often associated with an alchemists name Leary. That’s all you need to know for now.”

With Maeva checking her magical map now and then we make our way west to Bodean Camp. We encounter a group of headhunters but no sign of any artifact. A short distance from the camp we find the mutilated body of female bandit. In her possession was a Dwarven Cylinder. Doesn’t really matter that we were too late to save her from the headhunter but she probably wouldn’t have given up the Dwarven Cylinder without a fight anyway. Well at least she still has her head.

It was still a lot of daylight when the band left Bodean Camp to continue the search for the last artifact. The weather shifted and it was dark and raining by the time we approached Varus Camp. From a distance we can see a Khajiit and a woman fighting. Do we rush in to aid the woman or the Khajiit? We decided to advance slowly and deal with the victor.

The Khajiit won and fled at our approach. My Ladies chased it down and gave it a final lesson in manners. The dead bandit Carrier turned out to be an Imperial female. She was carrying a Dwarven Tube. That completes the set. The next time we’re in the Imperial City we will deliver the 5 Dwarven artifacts to Bothiel.

It’s late, we are all exhausted and ready for sleep but the Ladies absolutely refuse to spend one more night sleeping on the ground. Well the new town of Sutch is nearby. Let’s go see what kind of inn they have to offer.

Turns out Such has grown rather rapidly. Several homes and farms have sprung up all due to a productive ebony mining operation. There is a fairly nice inn in the new town, The Goblet Alehouse, owned by an Argonian named Paj Meel. We take rooms at the inn for the night.

The next morning Paj Meel, also the Mayor of the town, mentions that he is seeking assistance in rebuilding Fort Sutch. He asks if we’d be willing to recruit workers in Chorrol and Anvil.

I take it the Orc we met at Ave’s House of Delights never showed. He’s probably still sitting at the stage watching the dancers. Oh well, we’re heading Chorrol way don’t see any problem in asking around.

We leave the Alehouse and cast the Teleport Home spell to take us to Arborwatch in Chorrol.

As I said over in the new forums, so glad you have added Sutch. It's very well done, right?

I am curious what Jandaga will see at the Orrery as well. Joan of Arkay (one of my Xbox characters) did that quest and has received a couple of ... well I don't want to spoil. But one of the 'things' she got out that quest is actually useful!

Frustrating when you encounter a fight and can't tell who - if anyone - to help. Sutch looks great and especially the inn. And it seems like they're not done growing the town yet. Teleport home! What a handy spell!

Renee - Since I tend to wander about Cyrodiil doing things as I stumble upon them, I don't mind spoilers (probably read it in the UESP already). More than likely I will have forgotten them by the time I get to that point in the quest.

Arcadian - The Teleport Home is one of my two favorite teleport spell. The spell is available for sale in the LAME and Integration-The Stranded Light mods. Cast it and you can choose your destination from available home options. Destinations are added as you purchase homes. There is even a home option in the Shivering Isles.

Hope everyone enjoys reliving their Oblivion adventure through mine. Thanks to all for reading or should I say suffering through my poor story telling.

Right now I can't play Oblivion (on PC anyway) due to my disc drive being bad on my gaming computer. So yes, I am jonesing for some OB as I read Jandaga's adventures. biggrin.gif

Wish I could help with that but right now my work bench is backed up with 3 PCs in various stages of repair. That and about an 18-hour drive makes it kind of difficult.

20200823 Sutch & Better Cities
We begin the day canvassing around Chorrol for anyone looking for work we were able to dig up two possibilities. Two Orc brothers looking for work and an Imperial woman selling some interesting "training" were staying at the Grey Mare.

Entering the Grey Mare, Pym gives the Jandaga a nudge and holds up three fingers. Looking around he sees two of the biggest greenest ugliest Orcs he’s seen in a long time. Definitely not your typical Orsimer.

The Jandaga looks at them and thinks the two big tuskers are more in line with the Orcs Topal the Pilot Orc saw. Could they actually be real Orcs?

Introducing ourselves we present the Sutch opportunity to the Orc brothers. The two Orcs love construction work, eagerly sign-on for the Sutch contact. They left right away.

Pym nudges the Jandaga again, grabs him by the chin and directs his gaze toward… Well hello there!

The Imperial woman standing along the wall, Juliana Galena, tells us she is a trainer specializing in confidence building for timid boys in the, ahem, manly sport of wrestling.

Juliana would certainly improve the looks at Gweden but there’s a slight problem. She has an itch and one of her clients has it too. She can make a potion to cure the itch she just needs someone to collect the more difficult ingredients; imp gall and ogre teeth. Well thanks to Vilja, we do have experience collecting ingredients.

(BetterCities BANChorrolAgeOldSilverGateQuest – issue #1 Virani doesn’t recognize the PC as an Archeology Guild member or what’s worse as the AG Headmaster. RP adjustments needed.)

The Jandaga and his Ladies sat down with Juliana to discuss the particulars of her situation. It was around 9:00pm the party broke up and they left the Grey Mare. Maeva suggested stopping by the new inn in town the Twin Goblet Alehouse for one or two before going home. Sitting at the bar was a tall good looking Altmer wearing of all things an Archeology Guild robe.

Jandaga takes a seat next to her and strikes up a conversation. Virani is indeed a member of the Archaeology Guild. She must either be a very new member or she doesn’t spend much time at the guild hall. She has no idea that she is talking to her Headmaster. Instead the nerdy Altmer girl thinks Jandaga is trying to bust a move on her and begins to panic.

Watching the interaction between the Jandaga and Virani, Pym signs to Kaleah, “He’s doing it again!”

“Yes child. Isn’t it fun to watch,” Kaleah coos. “Two in one night, kinda makes me wanna get all jiggy wit ‘im.”

Blushing profusely, Pym throws her hands up in frustration.

The Jandaga sooths away Virani’s fears and soon she is confiding to Jandaga about her mission to investigate a recently discovered ages old silver gate below the Chorrol’s abandoned prison. Virani leaned close, her lips brushing the Jandaga’s ear and whispered she would be most appreciative if Jandaga would help determine if it is safe to explore beyond the gate, before the Archaeology Guild sends an expedition.

With a sly smile, Jandaga agreed to help Virani. He didn’t mention that she was talking to her Headmaster. He does have a brief thought the ethics of Virani’s recruitment tactics but lets it to pass without comment. Why spoil her fun after she had put so much effort into her seduction.

It’s late and the Jandaga and his Ladies decide to retire to Arborwatch for the night.

Those are indeed a couple of imposing looking orcs!

It was meeting the Imperial and Altmer woman that really drove home the implications of the Jandanga's Bosmeri lack of height. His eyes are at rather a convenient level when meeting most ladies. Buffy experiences the same situation but rather than enjoying it, the view usually just makes her envious. tongue.gif

20200826 Better Cities Who’s the Daddy
(Better Cities ‘Who’s the Daddy’ quest; cute but leaves a lot to be desired. The initial accusation conversation feels rather weak. It doesn’t take into account PC’s rank, status, or any skills that might have an influence on the outcome. It kind of goes from “you did it, Pay up or I’m calling the cops” to “ok bring proof you didn’t tomorrow”.)

There’s a light rain when we leave the Twin Goblet Alehouse. Surprisingly there’s a small crowd of people standing outside.

A young woman’s voice rings out in the darkness, “That's him Daddy. That’s the one who done it!”

The parents of a young pregnant girl in Chorrol named Elaine Breucombe approach the Jandaga accusing him of being the father of their daughter’s unborn child. They demand marriage.

Jandaga tried to explain that a mistake had been made, that he wasn’t the father but his denials fell on deaf ears. The father became angrier and angrier until he demanded Jandaga marry his daughter or he’ll call the guards and have Jandaga arrested and executed on some trumped up charge.

(Here the quest has the irate father suddenly for no apparent reason agree to give Jandaga a day to decide. My improvised version continues.)

“Go ahead call the guards. There’s one standing over there,” Jandaga shot back. “Have him arrest me.”

Given no other choice the accusing father calls the guard. When the guard addressed the Jandaga with “Greetings Champion, how may I be of service?” the parents of the pregnant daughter nearly died on the spot.

The Ladies, who were getting rather fidgety, began to laugh as Jandaga calmly told the guard that he was helping these good people with a growing problem and that they just needed to know the time. The guard gave Jandaga the time and reported that all was well.

Turning to the Breucombe’s the guard told them, “You’re in good hands. The Champion of Cyrodiil will certainly find a solution to your problem.”

“I will speak to your daughter tomorrow,” Jandaga told the speechless parents. They Jandaga and his Ladies went back to Arborwatch leaving the stunned Breucombe’s wondering how long it will be before they’re thrown in prison.

“That’s one of the things I admire about him,” Maeva whispered to Kaleah. “Gets falsely accused of tipping the prized cow and then offers to find the real culprit like nothing happened.”

“She may be a tad young but My Feache does not dally with cows. That I won’t allow!” Kaleah retorted.

The next day Jandaga and his Ladies had lunch at the Breucombe’s. Speaking privately with Elaine, Jandaga uncovers Elaine had become enraptured by the heroic/romantic tales of a dashing young adventurer. The last she saw of him, he was talking to a female Altmer dressed in a red robe.

With that lead the little band goes back to the Twin Goblet Alehouse to speak with Virani. Virani believes Sova, a fellow guild member, was in Chorrol about six months ago. Sova may have contracted Elaine's lover to explore suspected Ayleid ruins buried beneath Chorrol’s old prison. Perhaps he has gone to the Archeology Guild Hall to make his report to Sova?

Sensing the urgency in the situation Jandaga uses Midas’ Astral Gateway to travel to the Archeology Guild Hall.

Maeva, do you remember which one to the Archeology guild? “

Speaking to Sova she confirms two things. Yes, she employed the adventurer to explore some ruins buried beneath Chorrol’s Old Prison. No, he hasn’t been heard from since. Could he still be down there, all these months later? Seems unlikely but needs to be checked.

Dinner and a night spent at The Archeology Guild Hall.

Wow, that is a rather bizarre-sounding quest! It's rather mature subject matter, too. But bizarre.

I like that picture! The Jandaga shows up to Elaine's home in full psychadelic shiny regalia! laugh.gif It's like Elvis showing up to some home in suburbia. smile.gif

What a strange update today!
