I don't mer, but they're kind of cute with their inquisitiveness and politeness. The Green Pact is also kind of intriguing, if not disturbing.

Bretons are gay and have mer blood and want to be considered mer but are men too so the mer don't like them and so neither do other humans.

Never stated. What is known, though, is that almost all Elder Scrolls are copies of copies of copies of three original Elder Scrolls that were stored in White-Gold Tower at some point. One of them is broken for some reason.

Since he fought Alduin in the Merethic era, maybe those scrolls were easier to come by when time and space were just stabilised from their chaos before that.

See, it is shit like that that makes TES interesting
TESO lore, if Kirkbride contributed a fair bit, sounds like it'd be Morrowind tier.

>>263633874
CHIM is realising you're part of a dream, and thus everything and you are one and the same, but yet still being able to hold onto your identity and force yourself to exist. Usually if you try and attain CHIM you zero-sum because you can't handle the truth and just vanish out of reality, since you no longer believe you exist anymore. CHIM is when you love yourself enough to deny it and keep chugging on.

It's partly why all the people known to have CHIM are massive ducks. Vivec, Tiber Septim, possibly Lorkhan

You must become a fanatic of a god, aedra or daedra.

>>
>>263633874

CHIM is realizing you don't exist and yet you still exist by force of will. The tradeoff is that you stop giving a fuck. About anything. Since it isn't real.

It's an OK concept but people take it waaaay too seriously and expand it when it isn't needed.

Not really, there's a step beyond CHIM, finding the Amaranth. Vivec only got CHIM because he tried to get that and failed.

I always figured using CHIM required you to love whatever you're doing enough to do itfor its own sake. Hence why Vivec can't slap Dagoth Ur's shit but can trap and skullfuck Azura for revenge

I'm kinda in the same boat.

I love the ES universe. I love the mystery and ambiguity of events and I love the fact that I can draw my own conclusions.

What Kirkbride wrote so long ago was great. But I hate him for what he's doing to the series. And not even the series, mostly the fans since what he writes is fanfiction. Too much of his writing is just 2deep4u and 2smart4u without real substance. It's just complicated for the sake of being complicated.

Now see, this is why I accept my own version of things. Amaranth is part of the Kirkbride fanfiction that I don't accept as canon.

As far as I'm concerned, CHIM is the final step. Beyond that would be becoming the godhead itself, or rather a second one.

Nords are really only generic at face value and I don't think it's even possible to think of the Khajiit or Argonians as generic. None of them weak. The Nords are historically bullshit strong and produce shezzarines by the fucking dozen. Khajiit are usually too chill to be bothered with doing anything but remember that they went to moon BY STANDING ON TOP OF EACH OTHER. Argonians are (in my opinion) the strongest race on Tamriel. When Black Marsh was invaded by Mehrunes Dagon the Argonians weren't on the defensive; the fucking invaded Oblivion and wiped the floor with the daedra. Dagon had to shut down his Gates there because the Argonians were so full of piss from the Hist.

I think you meant to reply to me and yes the Nords are very strong. Why did you think the Empire was so keen on keeping them around? Nord warriors are hardy as fuck and very powerful when they get to shouting. Despite the gameplay concessions made in Skyrim (be honest, did you only play Skyrim?) lorewise the ability to Shout is solidly a Nordic and Dragonborn ability. Dwemer and Redguards do some similar stuff but it's not Shouting. Even without shouting you are ignoring that sufficiently powerful Nords are basically walking elementals. Check your lore brah, Nords are ancient and tough as fuck. I'm not even a big fan of them but you need to know this stuff for context.

Oh shit we got a loremaster on our hands. I bet you think it's canon that Solitude has 30 people in it. The games are always a tiny snapshot of the region they look at. The closest I think they got to actually capturing the entirety of the province was Morrowind and even then it was just Vvardenfell and still had stuff missing.
>>
>>263637440
But they still do
There are books in-game about how Nord armies regularly used Tongues to destroy walls. And every nord can just do a Battle Cry, which seems to be a very basic Shout.

You can attribute it to the Oblivion crisis fucking everything up, I guess, or Beth's laziness. Either way, anyone can still learn Shouts if they want, the Ebony warrior is a Redguard.

That is also correct. You can have both at the same time. I fucking love Bretons as well but let's not forget that they will never, ever unite. They don't even really think of themselves as Bretons. Just a bunch of "co-existing" cultures. At least in High Rock. I'd assume the Breton identity only matters when they're in foreign lands.

This is false.

Redguards:
Super warriors that can cut through atoms with enough discipline, they detest most magics and are capable sailors. Weaknesses are disorganization and lack of discipline as a whole, fail a rank-and-file soldiers, best used as shock attack and scouts.

Nords:
Forged in death-zone Atmora and granted the dragon speech, with enough training can shout through time. Most trusted race to manage the Imperial trade routes through any sea. Weaknesses include stubbornness and Dunmer-tier tradition-stagnation.
>>
>>263639521
Vvardenfell really is small, it just seems big at the start because of how slow you move. If you ran around in Morrowind at the same speed you do in Skyrim, you'd immediately notice. Not to mention much more of Skyrim's landscape is traversable, whereas many of Morrowind's mountains and hills were designed to be barriers.

Redguards are actually the fiercest at sea, the Imperial Navy had to bring in a dragon to overcome them in battle

>

They are a highly disciplined and enterprising people, having centuries of experience with warfare in their homeland before arriving on Tamriel's shores. Their warriors are acknowledged to be among the best in the world. The Redguards are also known for their naval prowess, and their fleets have proved a match for the Empire's best armadas, as seen during the Stros M'Kai revolt.[26] Stros M'Kai and some parts of mainland Hammerfell hold many Dwemer ruins, and some young Redguards seeking to enter military service must brave the dangers of these ruins.[1] Most of their holidays and traditions seem to revolve around either the celebration of natural phenomena or the commemoration of great battles and warriors.[3][4][27]

Due to their swift and decisive conquering of the province of Hammerfell, the Redguards are renowned as arguably the most fierce, versatile and naturally gifted warriors in all of Tamriel. Their ferocity and versatility is also manifested in their personality, which lends itself to why they are most effective as scouts and in small units as opposed to being deployed as rank and file soldiers.[1][2]

It's not a mod, it's an open source engine designed to run Morrowind. Think of it like someone trying to code their own version of Morrowind from scratch, but instead of scratch they have access to all of its assets.

Because of the goal of the project and its open source nature, it will run as if it were a modern game and take advantage of modern graphics standards without the need for special extenders or other things. This means better compatibility, less hassle running the game, improved graphics right out of the starting gate, and the ability for anyone to go in and make improvements to it. On top of that, since the entire engine is accessible, changes can be made to anything at all, such as reprogramming the UI or overhauling the animation system. Old mods will work, but new mods can be much more diverse.

It's exciting for Morrowind fans because it will respark interest in the modding community and make the game more accessible to fans of Oblivion/Skyrim.

This is precisely why they won't do an Elsweyr game. Bethesda couldn't even be bothered to make the beast races different after Morrowind, they certainly aren't going to put effort into rigging 20+ different types of Khajiit models and skeletons. TESO has some minor representation of the other subtypes, but they are disappointing. Generic tigers, seriously?

Skyrim:
Old Norse god gets send into the future and is about to destroy the world.

Showdown between an ancient Vampire Cult and an organisation of Vampire Hunters, superior Falmer lore.

Miraak, a truly tragical person, enslaves the people of Solstheim to return to Nirn.

Oblivion:
Red Devil faggot attacks the capital.
You become a mad god.
You defeat a stupid Ayleid Warlord.

Morrowind:
Some faggot starts creating ash monsters.
Political intrigue in the capital, which no one actually cares about.
Werewolves on a snowy island.

They're Altmer who literally got smeared in shit when their god got eaten and shat out. Then as if that wasn't enough, Shor takes off a curse that made Nords age and die at very young ages (up to 6 years old) and threw it on the Orcs just because they were unfortunate enough to be nearby.

Orcs get shit on by all the other races, especially Bretons and Redguards who regularly band together to remove Orc trying to settle near their lands. Although apparently there's a reason they always want to build Orsinium in the Illiac bay area when the rest of Tamriel doesn't mind them so much

The Oblivion Crisis.

Morrowind got his hard by the Oblivion Gates, but no where took it worse than Ald'ruhn. A Gate literally opened up in the middle of the city.

The town guard did the best they could to hold back the invading Daedra long enough to a call to be sent out to the Redoran Army.

Where as the Telvanni had become isolationists, and Hlaalu politicians, Redoran had always stayed true to their oaths and duties, and thankfully for their people, still had a mighty standing army.

The following day was war, a war of huge scale confined to a tiny area. Quite literally the entire Redoran forces slamming into an endless wall of Daedra.

The combat was so relentless that in order to slow the invading Daedra, the Redoran soldiers were clogging up the gate with dead Dremoras.

Still, it wasn't enough. Soon the entire defensive force was only a small battalion. All seemed hopeless until...

A citizens militia, organized by local merchants and nobles, all armed with silver weapons, donated by everyone who owned any, came to the aid of the army.

Renewed, the citizen militia and army made a desperate charge at the gate, managing to regain most of their lost ground.

While this was happening, the elders of House Redoran were busy activating an ancient safeguard built into the city to deal with invasion...

They began to use necromancy to revive the crab.

Emerging out of the ground with a mighty tremble of the earth, the crab joined the fight. The oncoming Daedra, though beings of torment and magic, were taken aback by such a sight.

As night turned to morning, the forces of Ald'ruhn held their ground, chanting the entire time

The hist made that huge and gave them a ton more strength and they didnt really feel any pain, so they just charged blindly.

Also it wasn't Molag is was Dagon who invaded during Oblivion.

Quick question: Why did no other Princes try to invade during the Oblivion Crisis? Sheo opened a portal, but thats it. Seems wrong considering some of the nature of the princes

If you actually understood that, you'd have answered your own question. The princes are primarily independent and have their own motivations, and while they sometimes take an interest in one another's affairs, no one has any particular reason to join Dagon in a full-scale invasion of Tamriel; some of them are even opposed to it.

Sheogorath's portal was entirely coincidental.

Is it plausible for a dark elf to worship Talos, seeing as Talos is Lorkhan and vice-versa? From what I understand, Lorkhan is a highly respected figure in dunmer society, especially among the Redoran folk. Or do they view Talos and Lorkhan as 2 different entities?

Multiple incursions by multiple Princes would probably lead to more infighting among the Daedric Lords that actual invasions.
>>
>>263645186
Argonians had extreme numbers (the Hist called them back to Black Marsh from all over Tamriel) and also the element of surprise. While the Dunmer did their best to hold off the Daedra at the gates, the Argonians were sent berserking THROUGH the gates leading a counter-assault. The Dremora generals just weren't expecting that shit and got overwhelmed, and then basically said fuck this and shut down the gates.

If the Argonians sat back and waited for the Daedra to come through the gates, then they may not necessarily have fared better than anyone else in Tamriel. It's the fact that they went charging in. Really, if you put this into perspective, this is also how the CoC and a ragtag group of Imperials are able to shut down the gates as well, because they dared to step on Dagon's home turf. If someone had told the Dunmer that all they needed to do was go in and yank out a few Sigil stones, they probably would have been fine.

This pretty much.

Black Marsh and the Summerset Isles fared pretty well during the Oblivion Crisis. Cyrodiil wasn't too bad either due to CoC, but Morrowind got fucked due to poor leadership and divisions politically.

In Summerset, at first they were hit just as bad, but the Thalmor, which are a politically part, think UKIP in 2008, it's known but not got much support. They used the invasion as leverage and organized the defense, rather successfully too.

I have no idea how it was in High Rock, Elsweyr, Valenwood or Hammerfell

Except Kirkbride has given plenty of exotic lore to Redguards, Khajiit, Nords, everything with the Dwemer, has the Thalmor win, and more. The Dunmer might be his favorite, but he's not skimping on other races. You still have to keep some mystery to explore in later games.

Alduin is not dead. He's still neded to destroy the current kalpa.

And I hate he was the final boss. TES games always found some loophole to justify a godly being being defeated (Dagoth Ur loses the connection to the heart, and Dagon is banished by a divine). But not Alduin: you kill him fair and square, so of course, they had to depower him to make it aceptable. So the aspect of Aka, devourer of worlds, becomes just a big dragon, devourer of souls.
>>

So what do you need? Iron ingots? gold?

open the console (~)
type in

help "itemname" 4
like
help "iron ingot" 4
or
help "gold" 4

This will display an image similar to this one with a list of values in the game that contain the term in the "". You might get a few results depending on how vague what you typed is. Look for the obvious one. Like if you typed
help "daedra" 4
And you want a daedra heart, use pageup/pagedown to find the one that says "INGR: Deadra Heart"
which is the ingredient, daedra heart.

Anyways onto the next step. Let's say you searched for
help "ebony armor of major alteration" 4
You will see the result:
ARMO: (0010CF6B) 'Ebony Armor of Major Alteration'

What you need to do is add that item to your inventory with the code presented like such:

player.additem 0010CF6B 1

The 1 at the end specifies how many of the item to add.

For gold I believe the code is

player.additem f 1000
for 1000 gold, if it hasn't changed since oblivion.

Fun fact: You can also clock on npcs so they are selected in the console and type

additem.f 1000

To give them 1000 gold, or whatever item you want.
>>
>>263650681
It is given that nothing can stop Alduin when he comes to end the kalpa, so what if he was somehow pushed into trying to take over the world specifically because that would make him vulnerable? What if this was all orchestrated by Lorkhan specifically to prevent the kalpa from turning so he could successfully bring about Amaranth?

What's the easiest way for a noob to get into TES lore?

And is being a stealth archer the most casual way to play the games?
>>
>>263652210
Oh. Well, yeah, I guess.

On an unrelated note, last night I dreamed Fallout 4 was announced with a trailer. Some highlights were a water plane badly positioned, the voice of Duke Nukem doing that moan he does when you press the "use" key when there's nothing to use, and the Persona cast. I hope it means Bethesda is going to show something soon.

>>263653003
Dunmeri culture is influenced by lots of real world cultures.
However, Semites also came from Mesopotamia, so both of us are right.

Stealth archer is probably one of the easiest way to play Skyrim, but not so much in Oblivion I find, archery is buffed a bunch between he games

I have an Argonian who is named Runs-Away, a name that is quite fitting for his cowardice.

I wear no armor and focus on only stealth skills and the illusion school of magic so I can stay unnoticed and never have to kill anyone. The only gold I get is from pickpocketing and things other killed trough fury spells, I can never go into dungeons since I cant control undead.

To further cement the fact that my character is a big fat coward is that I play on master and dont increase my base health with level ups and I dont use anything to fortify my health, anything can oneshot me which is a perfectly good reason to keep all baddies at a distance

You're right, the fact that they have most the magical ingenuity of the Elves and the resourcefulness of the nedes is completely trumped by the fact that their conception was less than kind.

Clearly each race has its own marriage traditions as shown with the Argonians preferring wedding rings, but the only way to make interracial marriage work in game is to have some sort of simplistic region-bound thing like that. Realistically, interracial marriage wouldn't be a thing in TES.

If you play Argonian or Khajiit you really need to think over your life. Monster races were made for us glorious humans to insert them into society and set on the right path . Not to use them as little pets or sex slaves.

Orcs can be bros. Such a shame they still have some mer left in them and their savagery. However , should the apropiate circumstances arrive , I think Orcs could integrate into society if they cooperate with humanity.

Long live humanity. We are the true emperors and owners of this world and we shall rule over it. Down with the Mer and their disgusting lies. It is our duty to purge them and clean this world from their filth

latest openmw development post

We’re in lock for version 0.32.0. That means that release candidate packages are being built for each platform and any bugs and other problems are cleaned up.

So what got in, last-minute? The most significant news is that the Light spell now works, creating light as it should. This in and of itself isn’t very exciting, but what is worth mentioning about it is that it was the last magic spell to be implemented. That’s right – all magic effects are in! This feature was the second oldest issue on the tracker (#47, right between Creature Animation and NPC Dialogue System – the newest issue is numbered #1857, just to give you an idea), marking another big leap in OpenMW’s completion.

In fact, feature-wise there isn’t all that much left. If we take our list of open features and filter out the editor jobs and everything post-1.0, we can see that this project has less than thirty features left to implement.

Of course, that doesn’t mean that 1.0 is right around the corner. There are over 200 issues to be worked through before that, after all. But those 200 issues are mostly bugs and if you’ve seen our last release video, you know that our development team has people on board that squish bugs with an impressive pace. (In fact, personally I am quite convinced that Scrawl in particular is secretly a robot.)

So when will 0.32.0 arrive? Very soon. The team is in the final stages of pushing the release out, so hang in there. Soon you’ll be wizarding like Myrddin.

This was in the Pocket Guide to the Empire, First Edition included with Redguard. The concept of shouts, the word Thu'um, Jurgen Windcaller, the Greybeards and the Seven Thousand Steps are all mentioned in this, which was written before Morrowind. The only thing not mentioned at this point is that shouts are actually the language of dragons.
>>
>>263636703

Shouts ARE exclusive to Nords and Dragons.

The Last Dragonborn can Shout because he is eternal, he has the dragon blood, even if he isn't a Nord.

The book Children of the Sky is found in Skyrim, it wasn't retconned out. There are only two non-Nords who can Shout in the game(Faolan the Red Eagle and the Ebony Warrior), but as far as we know they could have had a lot of Nord blood in them.

Nords have the inherent ability to use Thu'um, their Battle Cry racial trait is mentioned in Children of the Sky as a low-level Thu'um move. Creatia is found in the very life's breath of the Nords, they are second only to Dragons among all the sapient races to have their breath hold inherent power. And Paarthurnax taught them the Dragon Language so that they could Shout the true names of things and fight back Alduin.

Fair enough. They should have just left the shouts as they were described and left out the overused dragon bullshit. The civil war could have carried the game if they'd expanded to an Altmer invasion, possibly at the secret

You're right, I meant to say the concept of Thu'um being related to dragons and those of dragon blood (i.e. the Septims) being able to use it was exclusive to Skyrim. Until then, it was assumed to be something only Nords could do.
>>
>>263637704
The number of NPCs is different from things that are deliberately stated in game.

It was incredibly clear in Skyrim that shouting was no longer a normal ability of Nords. That you only learn it by training with the Greybeards. Its stupendously rare now.
