Re: Ethnicities of the Imperial Race - Cultural Diversity

"there's a lot here" . Yeah, I don't tend to do things by halves, it can be both a virtue & a vice. "It refers to the "out-of-atmora" theory...propagandistic notion was later refuted." I'm pretty sure what I wrote agrees with this sentiment. "It makes no sense to claim that the Nordic part of Colov...

Re: Culture and History of the Nedes

I should've said the name of Shezarr was an Alessian invention, I apologise for that omission. Yes, "Shezarr" has a long history. But, Shezarr and the Divines also refers to "concessions" for the new Eight Divines religion, "an elegant, well-researched synthesis of both pantheons, Nordic and Aldmeri...

Re: Discussion on Imperial Legion

On a related topic, "the Colovian nobility, all officers of the Imperial Legions or its West Navy" . I write this having only visited Stirk briefly ages ago, so forgive me if I accidentally contradict what already works there. I see that Tamriel_Data has a West Navy as its own faction (love that, by...

Re: Discussion on Imperial Legion

Love the plan Infragris. If I may be so bold as to offer a hopefully interesting compromise suggestion that should add something extra to the Province without undermining the unity of the Legion? I've used the "Races Are More Fun" mod for years. In particular, I'm referring to the changes to the Imp...

Re: Ethnicities of the Imperial Race - Cultural Diversity

On a side note (I realise this has probably already been addressed, it's just been on my mind): I always thought the description of " endless jungle " and " the grassland of the Nibenay Valley, is enclosed by an equatorial rain forest " conflicts to a highly confusing degree. Whether the equator is ...

Re: Culture and History of the Nedes

I'd like to add to a tiny bit extra to this highly interesting post. In the Nedic magic section, " the Divine known as Shezarr " seems to me as written from the perspective of a "modern" Imperial scholar. Shezarr, a creation of the Alessian Empire, would certainly be the name used when referring to ...

Re: Ethnicities of the Imperial Race - Cultural Diversity

I'd like to take issue with one thing here. ...descendants of Nordic mercenaries that came to aid the rebellion against the Ayleid. Nordic chieftains and warriors were given large stretches of the western frontier in reward . While I wouldn't say there were no Nordic immigrants during the Alessian E...

Re: an extra bit of spice

I'd like to add a small bit of extra "spice", even though I'm not sure it fits with the Nords. I've just posted on Tamriel Rebuilt about adding a script to House Dres armour, similar to the Ordinator script on Indoril armour, where a Khajiit/Argonian PC would be attacked on sight by House Dres guard...

Re: The snowline between The Reach and Haafinheim

Reading my earlier post, I admit it sounds very preachy. As a plant researcher with a passing interest in climate mechanics, I take serious issue with TESV's layout where the Rift's heavily wooded plateau is higher than Whiterun's tundra. I have to use the "Great Forest of Whiterun Hold" mod, as the...

Re: The "snowline"

I write this having absolutely no knowledge of how you plan landscapes, nor what you've already agreed on. I came across this and just wanted to add a different perspective. Scampy is correct in saying that "snowline" is a bad term to start from. A treeline looks like a line only from a distance. Th...

If any Falmer survive by the late 3E, it seems likely these NPC’s would have frost resistance (75%). A bit more willpower would suit them, tempered by a bit less strength and personali...

" One creation myth suggests that Atmora was once a part of Tamriel and became a separate landmass as a result of war among the Ehlnofey. Another Altmeri myth asserts that Auri-El established one of the first Elven kingdoms, "Altmora", there before ascending to heaven. According to Nordic tradition,...

Re: Falmer

I agree with a lot of what has been written here on this topic. I especially like the idea of some mystery over exhaustive detail, in-game. For some reason, I now find myself actually wanting to add my thoughts to a forum. I don't want to be stepping on already established plans, I just want to lay ...
