Since TES:V Skyrim has been announced, decided I would dump some Elder Scrolls art I'v collected. Given that it's one of my favorite settings.

I just hope they decide not to abandon the lore like they have been know to... at times *coughObvlivioncough*

The older concept of Cyradil as 'Rome meets Imperial China in the Yucatan jungle" fascinated me in the books from Morrowind. An unforgivable travesty that they retconned it.

Queen Barenziah, whose real biography I have to thank for a rather deeper knowledge of kahjit physiology than I ever desired to gain.

Ironicly... I've always wondered, she nearly bore Tiber Septum an heir didn't she? If I was the mage who had been ordered to remove the child (as was forcible done against her will) I would have seen if I couldn't have kept it alive. If only as a threat/insurance against my employer.

The Elder Scrolls has a tendency to do that, what with all the beastman. Hell I think there was only one romance sidequest in Morrowind, Ahnassi.

My somewhat conservative Dunmer Conjurer only figured out he had "accidentally a whole a Kahjit girlfriend" by reading back through his journal. Although I probably should have noticed the fact that my Athletics and Hand-to-Hand kept advancing after she offered to 'dance with me.'

Anyhow, I think this is some early concept art of what various Imperials 'would' have looked like.
No. 5649 ID: a988eb

Almost all of the older artwork have a much more exotic "feel" to them than the newer stuff. Buildings, clothes, armor...
I miss Silt Striders.

>Hand-to-Hand kept advancing after she offered to 'dance with me.'
That's how a real Dunmer treats a beastwoman!

The Tale of the History of the Shout-Mages of Skyrim
as told by me, informed by my rough memory and perhaps embellished my imagination
In the old days, before the empire was an empire, and before Skyrim was anything more than a region, the chiefs of the Nords knew well the tongue of the dragons, and employed it in war. In those days, no engines were brought to a siege, for the chieftains would bring down the walls of their enemies with their voices alone.
But there came a man who was great in voice, and called all warmaking evil. And twelve great chiefs came before him, and they shouted at him words in the dragon's tongue. But for twelve days and twelve nights, the pacifist ate all of their shouts, until they had none left. And when all twelve of the chiefs were exhausted, they became the followers of that man, and they taught the language of the dragons in a place in the mountains and did not make war. Thus, the language of the dragons for many centuries was used only peacefully in Tamriel.
But after this time a man came to Skyrim, and he was name was Tiber Septim, though he now is called Ysmir in Skyrim, and in Cyrodiil he is called Talos.
And he did many things in Skyrim, and one thing he did was form a school wherein the tongue of the dragon was taught, and it was taught to many people and some were not pacifists, and so that speech is used now for war once more.

Your 'to-hit' chance is low the first few levels (but you probably know that already) so don't get too frustrated when your weapon keeps passing through their bodies. But that tends to go away at fairly soon. Especially if you remember to use a weapon you are actually good with (stacken them bonuses.)

Newfag to Elder Scrolls here. Bought Obliv on steam, suggestions as to what required mods/ect I should get/use/need/want/help computah?
No. 6943 ID: ef90b9

At first: Try to get the addon, Shivering Isles, if possible. Should be rather cheap now, but is actually better than the main game (personal oppinion).
But avoid Knights of the Nine and other DLC like a plagued peasent.

Refrain from using major game changing if you want the original experience (You can try out one of the many overhauls for a second run).

Look for a mod which squishes out the last bugs and inconsistencies.

Depending on the PC you use, you might want one of the performance optimisers, since due to a bug Oblivion slugs down your RAM and/or graphic card memory after a while.

I personally would recommend a mod like "Natural Environment", which changes lightning conditions and adds weather effects (which are a bit broken in vanilla). It doesn't affect gameplay, doesn't cost FPS and only adds to the atmosphere imho.

There are tons of mods which only change aesthetics. I like the one which lights up the citie's windows at night and the "Better Landscapes" series, which have done a great job on the variety of the landscape, but the drastic changes might be a turn-off for a first time player. Also the mod which adds a few travelers on the road (but that one was a bit buggy last time I checked, so caution).

Lastly, depending on the type of player you are, you might try on of the mods which change the trading system (which is not that great in vanilla), the leveling system (which could definitly need some improvement) and the need to sleep and/or eat once a day.

But again, for the first time, try it with just a bug-patch mod and maybe the weather mod. You can experiment later on.

Again, depending on your PC, look for one of the excellent texture packs with normal mapping. Some textures really paid a lot of attention to details and keeping consistencies withig their packs. Lock at screenshots to fulfill your personal preferences.

The overhauls are major game changers, which mostly try to deal with Oblivion's shitty item management and creature leveling scripts, which are serious boundaries for modders. Some overhauls managed to do a good job and add tons of equipment, enemies and gimmicks like better AI and quest behaviour without totally breaking the main game.

When I think about the modabbility of older games I can just shake my head, but ah well... I should rather not rant.
