Yes I do have companion friendly inns, I got sick of Vilja throwing a tantrum every time they stayed at an inn. The windows are from Immersive Interiors! You are the one that sent that mod to me!
Aravi was a little stunned. She was trying to figure out how she was going to change clothes without putting on a show for anyone that might glance up into her window.
Aravi paid for the room so sheís going to take the big bed!
Falanu asks ridiculous prices through that whole mod and Aravi was sick of her blatant rip offs. That was the first time Aravi stole something and she was very nervous about it. She was freaked out by the thunder and lightning already and she was expecting an angry Falanu and the guards at any minute.
Viljaís such a critic. Araviís going to wear what she pleases. Those dresses just get dirty and snag on stuff when sheís walking around so sheíll wear pants.
She didnít know what to do when she entered her room. ďWhere are the curtains?Ē was her first thought.
I donít think Araviís aware of FalanuísÖ preferences. Thatís a pretty safe bet on Vilja though.
You really like that statue donít you. I guess thatís where Buffy got one of her important spells from.
That was a shock opening the door and seeing the whole room wasÖ totally observable from the street!
Weíll see who gets the ďkitty bed.Ē You are forgetting that Vilja spends quite of bit of the evening and early morning quenching her thirst. That means first choice will be Araviís! Itíll be interesting to see if Vilja crashed in the same bed with Aravi or if she sleeps in the other one.
And I bet itíll be a few weeks before Falanu notices that itís missing. Itís not like she uses it a lot.
-------------------------------Aravi and Vilja enjoy the morning outside of Skingrad before hitting the road and going home.
Oct 5 2011, 03:56 PM
Vilja did that to me in that exact same place - wandered off (very fast) into the woods around Skingrad. I could hear her talking but not find her. When I finally did I told her to follow me instead, and boy did she get ticked off at that! She refused to follow me till I told her to ride Brusa, then she was okay after that, lol. WHEW !!
I never saw anything attack Aravi, did she just get it from walking in the wooded areas? (like real ticks)?
Great Vid !!
Oct 5 2011, 10:34 PM
Swimming, flowers, and butterflies! What a pretty morning in the West Weald.
I had to laugh at Araviís reaction when Vilja headed north off the road at Derelict Mine. Whatís wrong with the road? I guess Vilja likes the direct route. Some of those plants are higher than Aravi.
I like Viljaís armor, even though we mostly saw her distant head. She needs to carry a little flag to wave around if sheís going to take off through the shrubbery like that.
Yikes, sick again. Poor Aravi. Other than the ticks, it was a lovely day!
Oct 6 2011, 12:40 AM
This was lovely!
Neat transition from the Ďdoor loadingí to leave the West Weald Inn to appearing in the meadows outside Skingrad. Very clever and well done!
Pickiní Ďgredients in your Ďkini with your friend. Just doesnít get much better than that!
Woot! New armor for Vilja!
Gosh you really captured Araviís WTF moment when Vilja opted for the off road route home instead of the perfectly direct Gold Road! I laughed as Aravi looked back and forth between the road and the woods before obviously unhappily following her Nordic friend with the Ďperfect sense of locationí.
Beautiful weather. I much prefer sunny days in Cyrodiil.
Lol. Vilja is hard to follow in that grass. You need the mod ĎDude, Whereíd I Park My
Nord?í It gives you a green quest marker arrow.
And finally they make it home. Your camera effects do a great job of showing Aravi feeling sick and woozy. Glad she had a cure disease pote-tshun.
Holy Imp Chips! Vilja reported that she ran across a couple mud crabs the other day.
Oct 7 2011, 02:22 PM
Iím glad it wasnít just with Aravi then. It seems like VIlja likes taking ďshort cutsĒ or something. This time she didnít start wandering so far out of the way that Aravi felt she needed to take control of things.
It was very nice out! Iím happy Araviís getting some time to enjoy that stuff now.
She was considering sticking to the road and let Vilja find her own way home. In the end, she sighed and ran after Vilja.
Iím glad you like the armor. I thought it looked a bit ridiculous with the massive bust size that modders seem to prefer; which is a reason Aravi has stuck with a vanilla cuirass.
I thought you would like this one!
This little time off from vampires is really doing all kinds of good for Aravi. Sheís been quite happy even with Viljaís alternative travel routes.
--------------------------------------Aravi gives the potion to Heniri and then waits out a storm.**
TIME: 8:47Runarís LetterViljaís Letter
(zoom in to read)
** I couldnít keep up with the conversation with Vilja, but the journal entry and the letters convey the meaning very well.
Oct 7 2011, 04:43 PM
After viewing your latest vids, I have another mod suggestion for you: Harvest Flora.
What does this mod do? Well, whenever you check a plant for ingredients, a portion of the plant is removed (or the whole plant is if necessary). This allows for a more realistic experience, and you will be able to easily keep track of which plants you have already harvested.
So if you, say, check a blackberry bush for ingredients, you will notice the blackberries on it disappear. Or when you grab some seeds off a Flax plant, you will clip off the flowers to let yourself know you have already harvested that plant.
It's a very subtle mod, but it really enhances the atmosphere of the game. This really is one of those mods I would recommend to anyone who plays this game.
Anyways, on your West Weald wandering vid, I got a good smile in when Vilja handed Aravi the Fatigue potion, since Aravi was obviously a bit tired, not only from the journey, but also from whatever spoils she was lugging up all those stairs.
I wonder how long it would take with me in Cyrodiil to start missing elevators?
Oct 7 2011, 08:16 PM
I finally got to see Vilja say some of my favorite lines of hers! This is exciting getting to see the end of her quests for version 3, and I wonder if you'll be getting version 4 to try out her new quests when this is over? (!)
That was awesome how you went out the window in TFC, I didn't know what would happen doing that - it was great !!!
Oh, and I finally get to see what is in Vilja's letters too - that has had my curiousity peaked for a while !!!
Great Vid !!
Oct 7 2011, 09:13 PM
Heneri Hlaalu in a lightning storm, for a minute I thought we were in a haunted house. Yikes. She had some fun things to say about Vilja, though.
I was chuckling at Viljaís complaint about bandit food. Just like a Nord.
Wow. Vilja seemed a lot happier once she got the melting daedra heart. That was quite a story she shared with Aravi. I wonder how Araviís meeting with Runar will go. Hopefully he wonít tempt her temper.
I really enjoyed the way you showed Araviís wait for the storm and for Vilja to think over what she was going to say. Vilja has had some annoying moments, but their friendship really shines here.
Oct 8 2011, 12:17 AM
That Heneri, in her own way, is as creepy as her daughter! And it sounds like she has a streak of the Sheogorath in her Ė
How sweet of Aravi to offer to help Vilja without even fully knowing the task. And how sweet the way Vilja feels about Aravi as described in her letter.
Gosh that was a long storm and you did a wonderful job of showing the passage of time. I was so relieved when Aravi finally got up from that chair to see she did not have a kink in her tail!
I perked up and was carefully watching as Aravi walked past the Cheydinhal stable Ė you know, looking for some of Superianís brothers or sisters.
Great idea to turn the two letters into screens for us to linger over. Thanks!
Oct 9 2011, 12:27 PM
@ Thomas Kaira:
That sounds like a nice mod, I will keep it in mind. Then there will be a reason to not strip every plant in the area of ingredients. If I find us out in a beautiful field again I will add it.
As of now, Iím trying to avoid changing my game because I donít have a lot of time to mess around with everything adding a new mod entails. I usually have to edit the Bash Patch.
That fatigue potion was one of the more useful potions Vilja has provided. Much of Araviís fatigue drain was from a disease. I have a mod running that makes the diseases in the game more potent.
Thanks Thomas Kaira! @mALX:
Iím not going to add version 4 just to be safe until after Viljaís main questline is done. That way if something goes wrong (which I doubt) I wonít be SOL with my videos.
Iím glad you liked my camera zooming. I had some fun with that. And of course I try to keep everyone updated with any documents; I especially had to do that with this quest. Vilja had a lot to say and I couldn't get it all.
Thanks mALX! @ Grits:
I remember the first time I didnít show what Heniri had to say about Vilja there was uproar! I made sure I included it this time.
Aravi has been a lot happier as well since she started focusing on helping Vilja. She was getting really strung out with the constant fighting and the dreams (which she still has but are not nearly as severe).
Thanks Grits! @Acadian:
Oh she is extremely creepy. You will see. I think she belongs in the Shivering Isles.
That letter was very sweet. Iím happy Vilja shared that with us.
Heh, yeah Aravi had to wait a few hours. Maybe a little stiff, but she gets to streatch her legs some in the on the way to the Imperial City.
----------------------------------Aravi travels to the Imperial City and speaks to Runar.
Oct 10 2011, 12:13 AM
Aravi on a quest for her friend!
What a nice trip to the IC. Mud crab for lunch! Oh, we saw one of those the other day. . . . And a great swim. Your water looks great.
And Runar. . . what a smarmy worm! Grrrr! True gentleman?!? More like a disgusting pig methinks. Iím so glad Aravi didnít give him a tumble. And Viljaís so much better off without him.
Oct 10 2011, 12:35 AM
The scenery is gorgeous again. Love those snowy mountains. Gosh, the water is so beautiful! I see that Aravi does enjoy air-drying after a swim.
Whoa, she was pretty bold walking nekkid all the way up to the prison this time.
Wow. That Runar is a nasty piece of work. If there was a knee to groin attack option, Iím sure Aravi would have used it. He was right about Araviís fantastic eyes, though.
I have a lot more sympathy for Vilja, now! Iím glad Aravi is doing this for her friend.
Oct 11 2011, 02:53 PM
Aravi give him a tumble? Not in a million years! She was disgusted by him. She wanted to punch him, though that would have led to a meeting with the legion.
Those cells don’t have windows and there’s never anyone back there so she walked the whole way up. I’m glad Shady Sam hangs out on the other side of the city though. Lol.
Aravi did want to hit him, but the legion doesn’t tolerate that, even if they deserve it.
----------------------------------------------------------Aravi gives Vilja the ingredient from Runar, then finds out about a recent murder committed by a vampire in the Imperial City.
**Youtube was acting weird this morning, let me know if you have any issues watching the video.
Oct 12 2011, 12:03 AM
Viljaís assessment of Runar Scumbag was spot on.
Loved it when Aravi turned around and glared at Vilja for suggesting the quiet kitty talk more. I almost expected Aravi to tell her that Vilja does enough talking for Aravi plus ten women (or Buffy plus two maybe).
Then dear Vilja adds insult to injury by saying, ďI donít feel much like talking.Ē
Anyway, old Runarís a memory now and Aravi has another vampire to hunt down.
Gosh, that Simpliciaís not slow at all. Sheís right quick into Araviís coin purse!
Loaded up, armed up and into the sewers. Iíll bet Aravi will need her soap by the time she gets out of there!
Oct 12 2011, 12:05 AM
URK !! How did I miss that vid posting ???? !!!! ???? ARGH !!! I was surprised to see Aravi get right up to the IC, lucky thing Ocato wasn't looking out the window of that tower, lol. I thought Shady Sam may have gotten an eyeful, but right after I said that I realized you were on the other side of the IC from him.
Now I'm going to watch the vid you just posted, lol. I am so sorry KC !! You should have spurred me with a cattle prod !!
Oct 12 2011, 12:15 AM
ARGH! A cliffhanger !! Simplicia the Slow was hilarious, lol. Awesome vid - really surprised she is taking Vilja with her and not armored !!!
Oct 12 2011, 12:43 AM
Iím glad Vilja is over Runar. What a jerk.
How funny, Vilja doesnít feel like talking, but she wants Aravi to talk? How about a little companionable silence, woman!
Simplicia was slow to get to the point. Oh yuck, the sewers. Poor Aravi.
Itís exciting to see her get back to hunting!
Oct 13 2011, 01:24 PM
Iím kind of sorry that Vilja came all the way from Morrowind for him.
Your comment on Viljaís talking made me smile
Buffy plus two.
Simplicia wonít be getting another coin soon from Aravi. Her crude way of demanding money really put Aravi off.
Thanks Acadian! @mALX:
Aravi was near the prison, they donít seem to like windows over there. And what would Ocato be doing there? Heíd be in the big tower in the center of the city.
I did notice after I recorded that Vilja wasnít wearing armor. Thatís an oops.
Thanks mALX! @Grits:
Runar was vile, Aravi was all too happy to be done with the whole thing.
A little silence would be greatly appreciated. Is that too much to ask after talking to Runar?
She felt ready to dive back into the hunt! That time away from all the killing and nightmares put her in a wonderful mood.
----------------------------------------------Aravi finds a way into the sewers and looks for the vampire.
Oct 13 2011, 02:19 PM
It is a credit to Araviís steely nerve that she did not slap Vilja in the first ten seconds at the top of the stairs. Good grief!
Holy crap, for a second I thought that bandit was Aravi!! NOT good.
It sounds like Vilja is ready to start dating again after Runar. Sheís going on about the cute Azzan, comberry wine, and strawberries.
New boots! Nice, now Aravi wonít have to walk barefoot in poo.
Itís fun to watch Aravi have to search for the vampire. I donít know what to expect.
Oct 13 2011, 07:22 PM
Oh, that is what I meant - Ocato looking out the windows of that high tower and seeing a naked Khajiit trouping up the hill toward the city, ROFL !!! I was only teasing, lol.
I freaked like a mother when Aravi cleared the pitch darkness and Vilja was in her face, ROFL !!!
Ooh, that was really cool when Aravi moved the bandit off the steps !! That must be the place where your portal is! I recognized the tapestry! (but didn't see the portal).
I have to agree with Grits, those boots look Awesome on Aravi !! I am wild about the loot you get from those mods !! I really miss your old night-eye though, the one that didn't add the blue tint. Great Vid !!
Oct 14 2011, 12:05 AM
Nice opening sneak shot, Aravi!
Um, Vilja. . . Azzan is indeed a cutie, but maybe we could talk about this another time?
I loved how you timed some of your transitions to hear a single inane comment from dear Vilja and give us a glimpse of where they were.
Ahah! One of the other sewer entrances. I loved how Aravi put on her (Youíre right, Grits Ė very stylish) new boots before entering the sewers.
This could be a long and mucky trek.
Oct 15 2011, 12:22 PM
That would have been my reaction to anyone that sticks their face that close to me.
I didnít show it, but that bandit actually gave Aravi a pause. She thought the bandit looked so much like herself. Then she was going to shoot her from the dark with a poisoned arrow. Thatís really the only thing she doesnít know how to defend against.
Aravi doesnít like wearing boots, but sheíll make an exception for a sewer.
Thanks Grits! @mALX:
I think Vilja scared the crap out of everyone. Lol!
Yep, if she needs to make a quick escape, she canít be tripping over a dead body. She kind of felt bad about killing someone that looked that close to her and then roughly dumping the body.
The tapestry did its job, the portal is right behind it. I donít think Aravi is going to have a chance to ever move into the house.
I miss the old nighteye too, but it wonít install because of some stupid settings on my computer.
Thanks mALX! @Acadian
Always a fan of the bow!
I tried to get many comments from Vilja. I donít want anyone to get the impression that sheís ever quiet!
Boots are a must even for Aravi in the sewers. Sheíll be happy when sheís done crawling around in there. Those boots wonít likely survive the experience, no merchant would buy them after that!
--------------------------------------------------------- After finding a way inside the sewers, Aravi and Vilja search for the vampire that murdered a man in the Merchant's Inn.
Oct 15 2011, 04:38 PM
Did you close that heavy gate on poor Vilja? ROFL !!! Oooh, a new vocalization by Aravi !! "This way, then?" I haven't heard that one before !!
What was that thing havocing around in there? Urk.
Aravi goes around the sewer grates just like Maxical does !! She does the same thing in Ayleid ruins, once bitten twice shy, lol.
ROFL !! Vilja - "There's someone watching me, I can tell..."
Oh how sad, I could tell Aravi was upset when she put her hand over the dead adventurer. These mods you are using add so much to the game !! Not just the loot, but the new NPC's - so much more realistic that your character is not the only good guy trouping around in these dungeons !! Awesome !! Being as the diseased vampire hunter was just past the Adventurer - it may be that one of them was supposed to give Aravi a message. URK !!
Oct 16 2011, 12:04 AM
Another great vid. You have really gotten so smooth with your transitions! I love how Aravi poisoned both her blade and bow before attacking.
Vilja did pretty well! I like her armor. It looks like it provides some sturdy support for her. . . Nordic bits. Speaking of apparel, Iím glad to see Aravi still wearing her little red raiding boots.
So, was that ĎEx Vampire Huntressí Araviís mark? Was that the one she was after?
Oh noes! Unbeknown to our adventuring ladies, they were not the only adventurers in the sewers. Target ID is so hard sometimes for those who must attack from the shadows. My heart breaks for Aravi. I know she must feel awful.
Oct 16 2011, 03:46 PM
Aravi sure had a lot of issues to deal with in this sewer trip. First, the adventurer. When he said, ďWhat did I ever do to youĒ after she shot him, I thought, oh crap. That looked like it really bothered her, especially after the Khajiit in the last video that looked a little like her. Then the vampire turned out to be an infected former vampire hunter. Her nightmares coming to life.
The sewers looked interesting in this video, because of the way Aravi looked around. I got the sense that she was creeped out and disgusted, trying not to fall through a grate, step in something, or have something gross fall on her head. Vilja plunged right into the sewage though, keeping her friend safe from the rats and mudcrabs. Thatís worth picking a few silver goblets up off the floor!
A troubling adventure. It makes me wonder if Aravi will reconsider the vampires killing job soon.
Oct 17 2011, 02:26 PM
That was a funny moment for me. Watch the gate close and then ďWhereís Vilja?Ē
Iíve been neglecting the mod I made for her, so I tried to sneak a new line in.
Aravi doesnít want to risk having a grate go out beneath her like Maxical. Those things look pretty rusty donít they?
Aravi had no idea there was anyone down there that she would have to be careful to not shoot. She had no idea she had even killed friendlies until she went to check the corpse.
If any of them had a message for her, itís forever lost.
Thanks mALX! @Acadian:
Iím sure Buffy approves of the use of poison. Thatís one thing Aravi doesnít hold off on in the sewer.
Heh, I like the general look of the armor, just the chest area was made quite large. Lol. Aravi couldnít wear it, thatís for sure.
Little red raiding boots
The huntress wasnít the one she was after, just a chilling look at what can happen to her.
Yeah, murder is something new for Aravi. She takes it hard.
Aravi is having a really rough start going back to hunting. Like I said above, sheís never murdered anyone before and she takes it hard. The huntress got pushed to the back of Araviís mind after she realized what she had done.
The sewers are the only place in the game that I can honestly say Iíve never really explored. I used to think Iíve been in every dungeon in the game at least once, but those sewers are new to me.
You are very right about Araviís way of getting through there. Vilja didnít have to dive into that sewage thoughÖ
---------------------------------Aravi realizes that she made a terrible mistake.
Oct 17 2011, 09:58 PM
GAAAAH !!! How did you get her to sit on the bed like that? ARGH !! Poor Aravi. I saw how afraid she was to kill another innocent when she got right up on that bandit to make sure first. It looked like she was crying after she placed the Adventurers bodies, like she was seeing the room through her tears.
I usually go all through every one of the sewer systems and clean them out just for practice fighting and to hone skills. The vanilla game gives you a mix of everything evil, but your character doesn't have to worry about crossing paths with innocents. Poor Aravi, being afraid to fight ranged is going to put her in a lot more danger !!!
I love this vid !! It shows clearly that Aravi may be a tough warrior, but her heart remains soft. Awesome Job !!!
Oct 17 2011, 10:42 PM
Oh, this is so sad! Araviís grief really shows. Even Vilja seemed her version of sympathetic for once.
I was worried when Aravi crept all the way up to that bandit, then jumped him with her sword. She seemed more cautious with his life than with her own for a minute. And as Acadian said before, she was using her poisons with bow and blade so smoothly on this mission, until the accident!
I was glad that Vilja stayed with Aravi at the inn instead of hanging out downstairs. That was a good night to have a friend along, even if she was just snoring in the next bed. The last shot of Aravi sitting on the bed was simply heartbreaking.
What an emotional video. You did it so beautifully!
Oct 18 2011, 12:26 AM
This was so well done! You do indeed capture Araviís hesitation. Her lingering, moving the bodies, not looting them, aborting her dungeon crawl after one more fight. Then the stunning bit at the end of poor Aravi sitting on the bed at night. Oh, she makes me want to cry!
Like Grits, Iím so glad Aravi has dear Vilja near.
Oct 19 2011, 01:33 PM
Thank you so much mALX! She had to blink away some tears before she could move on, then had to leave because she didnít think she could do anymore. She was such a wreck that night. You are right about her reluctance to use her bow.@Grits:
Thank you so much Grits! Vilja was sympathetic without being direct.
She was honestly not in the right state of mind when she went after that other bandit. After the accident, leaving was the best thing she did.
It was hard for her to sleep after the murders. I really liked that shot of her on the bed too. @Acadian:
Thank you so much Acadian! Iím proud of how it turned out. Aravi is still very messed up from the experience. I felt her pain when she realized she murdered two people, and Iím glad I was able to do it justice.
################################################Aravi works up the courage to go back into the sewers.
Oct 19 2011, 04:30 PM
That was very touching that Aravi layed flowers at the 'Temple of the One' for the two Adventurers, and cried again. It shows how deeply it upset her to have killed innocents, shows a lot about her as a person. It didn't look like she slept well, either.
This ended on a cliffhanger, who was fighting ahead of them? Oh, that guy at the end of the hall is just walking around, it can't be him fighting !! Although it was really rough on Aravi in this instance, I love that other innocents are out seeking treasures, not just the Player - that is so much more realistic! (and will keep the Player on their toes when they have to watch out for their presence). I take it that is Francesco's? I really love that feature. This was an AWESOME Vid, Aravi's pain at her error is tangible.
Oct 19 2011, 06:55 PM
It’s nice that Vilja is trying to cheer Aravi up with some small talk. But… her favorite book is ABC for Barbarians? Did I hear that right? D’oh!
Praying for the Adventurers and blinking away her tears was quite touching. Aravi is clearly still upset, which is perfectly natural. What’s disturbing to me is that it’s interfering with her work. I had a feeling she was going to change her mind about shooting that bandit, after she sneaked past the sleeping Khajiit. (Good move closing the door behind her.) Declaring herself and leaving potential enemies at her back is a riskier course of action, but she has to find a way to sleep at night. I’m glad she’s wearing armor instead of the huntress outfit that Vilja always remarks upon.
It’s a shame one of the Adventurers didn’t have a note saying “The vampire is this way-->” or something.
There’s a fight up ahead! I wonder who it is? This is turning into a major sewer adventure!
Oct 20 2011, 12:09 AM
Wow, you are really showing what Aravi is thinking and feeling so well. Praying, flowers, crying. Beautifully done!
Her tactical overcompensation at this point is very understandable and you show it both clearly and naturally. I hope she can move beyond it and focus more productively on some of the numerous ways to improve her ability to identify targets from long range.
In the meantime, you are certainly keeping us on the edge of our seats!
Oct 21 2011, 01:43 PM
Thank you mALX! Sheís still very messed up from that experience. Iím sure eventually sheíll snap out of it. I hope sooner rather than later.
Iím glad you are enjoying the changes; I certainly do, even though they ended up hurting Aravi a lot. I was happy for the opportunity to show another side of Aravi.
Yep, Franís mod is my guess. @Grits:
Viljaís attempts at small talk are appreciated. Iím sure in the future; Aravi will remember Vilja and the support she offered.
I was happy when Aravi was willing to go back inside the sewers so soon after that, and then was horrified when I realized she really wasnít ready to go back. Itís very risky for her to leave enemies, because there have been many times where sheís needed to retreat.
She can wear armor now because she has moved away from illusion and does not need 100% spell effectiveness.
Thank you Grits!@Acadian:
Thank you Acadian! She didnít know what else to do to honor the adventurers. Theyíll never have a proper burial, she canít do it.
What she needs to do is forgive herself and learn to trust herself again. Until she does that, sheíll be putting herself in more danger than she needs by trying to get close enough to every target to be absolutely sure.
I was hoping that we would get more vampire quests done, but she isnít ready to be back in the thick of things.
######################################Aravi and Vilja move in deeper.
Oct 21 2011, 02:23 PM
Uh Oh, I saw that woman Simplicia described !! URK !! Vampire disease !!! Holy cow, there are a ton of vampires there !!! Awesome Vid !!! I was tense all the way through it with Aravi using close range tactics. Bless her heart !!!
Oct 21 2011, 05:32 PM
Wow! Your intentionally slow and lingering pace (which I loved) at the beginning beautifully drew out the suspense as we pretty clearly imagined what Aravi was thinking *gulp*. Then, sure enough, she kicks off an up close and personal instead of a hidden strike from range. I was so worried about her and Vilja vs THREE vampires! I couldnít help but think of the total devastation to Aravi is she survived but Vilja did not. I so hope she regains her ranged confidence.
It is such fun to peek over Araviís shoulder as she decides what to loot. Buffy ignores those potions and goes straight for every apple and carrot she can find (for you know who).
Argh! More vamp disease from that robed sorcerer! She did a great job decreasing his lethality with those damage magicka poisons. I was glad to see Aravi give him a couple extra posthumous whacks.
Iím so pleased she got her nice sword back after being disarmed. I know she lost one once before.
Oct 21 2011, 09:38 PM
Yikes, I was afraid that will-o-wisp was going to wander into the fight. Or was that some kind of glowy vampire thing? Ugh, and Aravi bumped into that hanging corpse! That made me jump. That was so nerve-wracking, watching Aravi creep up closer and closer before the fight. This is definitely the bloodier method of target acquisition.
Argh, for the next fight I was sure
sheíd get out her bow! The sewers are more interesting looking than a lot of ruins. Iíve never really looked around down there. Your choices about what to show as they sneak through have given a real sense of the place.
Vilja and Aravi really seem like a team here. I think itís the way Aravi looks back and checks on her before they go into areas.
Oct 22 2011, 08:18 PM

Oct 22 2011, 11:02 PM
I love the bird design on the pouch that holds the arrows, that is gorgeous !! I was wondering (like Grits) if this means Aravi will still be using some ranged combat?
Oct 23 2011, 12:36 PM
I think that was her too. If Aravi hadnít killed those adventurers, she might have taken a shot at her. She wants to be absolutely sure that every kill she makes isnít another innocent though. Sheís forcing herself to take a lot of risks, but she hates what she did, and sheís willing to take those risks. I really donít think that sheís ready to be back in but realized that too late to turn back.
I love the bird design on the pouch that holds the arrows, that is gorgeous !! I was wondering (like Grits) if this means Aravi will still be using some ranged combat?
I got her to use it on a creature! It helped that it was a huge spider though. She hates them as much as I do.
Thanks mALX! @Acadian:
Hey! I was pleased to see that you were able to make it over here before you fast traveled to Acadian Seniorís. You always seem to enjoy the videos most that I'm the least happy with. Lol.
She would be totally devastated if Vilja were killed, probably enough that she would soon end herself.
Heh, Araviís pretty strict about what sheís willing to eat, and she wouldnít even allow a horse to eat an apple that was on a vampire living in the nasty sewers.
Itís some glowy vampire thing, but what it is beyond that? I donít know.
Iím kind of happy you pointed out that she bumped into the corpse, that got her full attention for a split second even in the middle of a fight.
I couldnít believe that she made it that close to the vampires without being detected! I was sure she was going to be spotted.
The sewers arenít a place Iíve spent a lot of time either. Iím pleased that there was a quest down there so I got to look around some. It makes me curious as to what else is down there.
Your team comment made me realize that they did do a pretty good job fighting together down there.
ÖComplete absence of new silver belly chain?
You really like them donít you? Sheís currently out of the IC but when she goes back Iíll make sure she wears a new SILVER belly chain just for you
I donít think Iíve posted Araviís stats on here yet. If I have, well this is a reminder then.

#################################################Aravi and Vilja finally find the vampire that murdered in the Merchant's Inn...
Oct 23 2011, 02:43 PM
I can tell the death of those Adventurers has affected how Aravi is approaching enemies - she is close range fighting with everyone now - kind of a scary position to be put in when fighting vampires, but I understand why.
GAAAAH !!! That vampire didn't see her till VILJA had to run by him like a complete NINNY !!!
Did Aravi search the vampire in the mini-skirt and you edited it? GAAAH! I was dying to know what she had on her, lol.
One of the swords Aravi just picked up from a vampire is showing stolen, that is odd.
I like the sayings on the Journal Entries, whoever wrote them is really funny !!
Hey, your Weye looks a lot more ... populated house-wise than mine! And Nerussa looks Awesome too! Is that another mod? Awesome Vid !!!!
Oct 24 2011, 01:25 AM
I love that Weary Dagger. OK, that was funny when Vilja jumped onto the vampire then ran past in sneak mode. Iím glad he didnít hurt Aravi too much after Vilja spoiled the surprise attack. Bow of Scorching, nice! The vampires should hate that.
OMG, what is she wearing?! Vampire bloomers? Iím with mALX, the Journal Entry made me smile. Whew, the tunnel out was a welcome sight.
Oh no, a lightning storm! So much for a relaxing post-mission walk home. Whoa, a strike right behind the Wawnet Inn! That was close. Hel-lo Nerussa. Sheís had a makeover.
Poor Aravi looked like she was at her limit. She just threw her gear on the floor and climbed into bed in nothing but her fur. I guess the lightning storm was the last straw! Maybe sheíll get to go to the beach soon.
I really enjoyed the sewer saga. This was a great set of videos!

Am I the only one who think that first vampire's face looks like a chimp?

SPEW !!! ROFL !!! The vampires in this mod are the ugliest I've ever seen, they make Vicente look almost human. What they did to Janus Hassildor is downright freaky :http://img9.imageshack.us/img9/2564/oblivi...03092305031.jpg

Aaaaaaaaaah! So much for sparkly hot vampires.
Oct 25 2011, 02:32 PM
I kind of suspected Vilja was going to do something like that. You have to talk to her to make her stay in place, and to do that, you have to stand up. So the options were get seen, or get seen.
Yes I edited it, she didnít have anything interesting, but Iím sorry anyways. I keep forgetting you want to see the loot.
The journal entries are pretty funny, but they are kind of out of character for Aravi. Just pretend she didnít write that.
More populated? Oh thatís a lodge thatís added by a hunting mod. Thereís a woodelf merchant in there that has a lot of barter gold.
I canít remember what mods I have running that would affect Nerussa. Maybe Cosmetic Compilation? That is very old on my load list though.
Thanks mALX! @Grits:
That dagger was random loot added by Franís. Very nice one isnít it? Aravi doesnít get to use it much so Iím glad she put it to use in there.
Too bad Aravi didnít use
that bow. Whatever that vampire was wearing, it wasnít lootable. Lol.
That lightning ruined Araviís plan of taking a bath right away. The rain got some of the nastiness off though.
You are right, she was totally exhausted. It would have been more appropriate if she had just fallen in bed, but that isnít an available animation.
It wasnít at all what I expected when we started it, that is for sure.
Thanks Grits! @SubRosa:
Hey I didnít expect you to drop by! Now that you mention it, I went back and looked and yeah he does. The vampires have always been real lookers in Oblivion havenít they?
########################################Aravi suffers another nightmare after her recent encounter with the vampires in the Imperial City Sewers.**
**Due to a glitch, this video turned out a lot moreÖ weird than I expected. Eager to leave the Wawnet InnÖ
Oct 25 2011, 05:23 PM
That was some nightmare! Especially that part where it went black and white, and Aravi's headless corpse attacked her!
Oct 25 2011, 07:51 PM
What a nightmare!! It just kept getting worse and worse! The ending was very
Huge relief to hear Viljaís casual chatter when Aravi woke up. Ugh, Aravi was so ready to leave, but the storm! Araviís job is too stressful! You conveyed so much in this video, all in the Wawnet Inn. Amazing.
Oct 25 2011, 10:22 PM
URK!!! GAAAAAH !!!! That was ... freaky as H !!!! Glad my stomach was empty!
Cure disease, lol. How appropos !!!
I kept seeing flashes of the nightmare - freaked me out !!
Uh, did it seem like Nerussa was making faces at Aravi? Like Aravi either needed a bath or had the beginnings of vampire disease?
Vilja was so sweet, that was nice.
Aravi's tense pacing in the dining room was very telling, this last nightmare has really upset her!
WHEW !!! Awesome Vids !!! ... Scary !!
