Welcome, welcome to my first thread here at chorrol! smile.gif

Here you can post screenies of anything in Oblivion. Iīll start by showing you my character Lothran from various points in Cyrodiil.

Outside Wildeye Stables

In his Bravil home with his pet Wolfie

The oldest pic of Lothran I have atm. Heīs standing east of Kvatch

You can do what I do, download and use FRAPS. Very easy to use, I promise smile.gif
The pictures you take with Fraps are stored in your Fraps map at the C: directory by default (I think), unless you choose to put it someplace else when you install.

what armour are you using lorthan by the way?

Heīs using Saviourīs Hide together with leather greaves and boots, heīs been doing that for years now. Only the enchantment on the greaves and boots have varied.
When heīs in Bruma though he only uses fur and the enchantment on that has varied as well.

yes but how do you actually use fraps in game ? the same key as vanilla shots ?

And in documents will create a new file with the single screenshot ? sorry but i like to get the facts straight.

By default you press F10 whenever you want to take a picture. Of course, you have to have Fraps up and running. Itīs not enough to install it.

It was sooo long ago that Lothran was a bluehair. Buffy gets all tingly every time she sees snowflakes dancing in Lothie's white hair. Shrunk the elf? Yup, right down to Buffy size!

Here's one of mirocu's faves of Buffy. I call it Desert Nights.

To find your pictures you go to the location on your harddrive where the Fraps map is. For me itīs C:/Fraps, and in that map you find the Screenshot map where they end up.

Itīs free and thereīs no subscribing to anything smile.gif

My knowledge is admittedly limited here, but I think Drow are Dark Elves with platinum blonde hair. Example:

Lothranīs hair was blue from the start as you can see. I changed it to white after a few years to demonstrate his long life and wisdom. Even though elves donīt age like we do, I thought that was the best way of showing it smile.gif

I like that idea! On the Drows - Nexus has pages of mods for Drows in Oblivion, that's why I asked if Lothran was one. Either way, he's cool looking.
Acadian
I believe Drow Elves are a product of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons / Forgotten Realms. They are a non-playable race, for example in Baldurs' Gate II. They are generally an underground matriarchal race that is regarded as evil. There are exceptions, for one of the most famous Drows is named Drizzt Do'Urden and is a decidedly 'good' ranger.

I'm no expert at all on Drow Elves but I hope that helps. smile.gif

I don't think any of the Nexus mods have the Drow as evil, although some are more sexually oriented than others (example: AlienSlof's Drows are extraordinarily well endowed, and the "Giant Melon" Drows in another mod - no explanation needed on them).

I am such a geek. Check it out, I have my Monster Manual right here! Let's see if I can read it. Wow, they used such small type in some of these books. *gets glasses* that's better.

Drow Elves: These are only legend. They purportedly dwell deep beneath the surface in a strange subterreanean realm. The drow are said to be as dark as faeries are bright, and as evil as the latter are good. Tales picture them as weak fighters but strong magic-users.

On topic: I'm really liking these pics! Why do people mostly post them as links, though? If we have the option to just put full pictures right in our posts, why does everybody use links?

1. I was so hoping you would stop by, figuring your knowledge of D&D would vastly eclipse mine. Thank you!

2. Several reasons to use links for screenshots. First, posting images directly in the post slows down loading times and if there are lots of them, it can get jerky as the thread loads. And bigger images make the problem much worse. Secondly, if you use links, you can post big images with no problems. Thirdly, lot of images in the posts makes for lots of scrolling to see what's new. smile.gif

That mod does give you the option for smaller breasts, just don't install the giant ones and the regular ones will be there. She is beautiful, but I agree with you on the size of the ones shown, they were obscenely huge.

If you are talking about Lothran, he isn't a Drow. He is a Dunmer with beautiful platinum blonde hair.

The Drow mods have unique other things besides their looks (strengths/attributes/spells, etc - and in the two mods mentioned above: uniquely sized body parts).

No , i was talking about drows.

i have known lorthan for quite a long while and im guessing mirocu got the hair throw custo, colour rather than a mod

just use custom colour , you can get any colour you like then .

And if the drows only - what was it ? - "unique" feature beside the hair is there breasts they dont sound very interesting at all .....

They are a race mod, add Drow to your game and give you the ability to play one. They have unique other things besides their looks (strengths/attributes/spells/etc) and usually some white body tatooing.

I've never used any of the Drow mods, but I love their Ayleid styled architecture and buildings (beautiful deep purple to black colored) - and have used the meshes for these in some of my own stuff.

Yes, since Lothran is my only Oblivion character we have been through so much over the years and that means alot to me. I have connected with him in a way I didnīt think I would.
But I also feel a connection to dear Buffy in fact. She has a big heart in that small body of hers and I canīt help thinking about how such a fragile little creature can survive against all the necrodudes and vampires sheīs hunting. Good thing she majored in Illusion and Marksmanship happy.gif

It is actually just one mod, a race mod called Kawa Khajiits. They overlaid Imperial features and Khajiit, then added some creative things (example, her ears move with her mood or when she is talking to someone, her tail is longer than the vanilla Khajiit tail and has more movement to it. She has her own voice for battle cries, and has head tracking - which I love).

Other than that, the only other thing modded on her is a voice mod so she speaks at different times in game. She speaks in a Scottish accent (The voice of "Annah of the Shadows" from Planescape Torment - Sheena Easton) and she sings/hums when she is walking around.

I like to alter his shots because I think it suits his atmosphere better.

Although this sepia shots made him look much more scary as he is in fact. Without his hood and in normal daylight he looks like ordinary pale Bosmer with a blank look and dark circles under his eyes. But then again, it is almost impossible to see him without his hood, because he wears it all the time, except when going to sleep or when swimming.
