Re: Cyrodiil Creatures

Regardless of what the motivation behind a piece of interesting lore is, if it fits and is widely accepted, I don't see what is so wrong about taking it into consideration. Metaphysics are just as huge a part in TES as any other facet of the world. Despite their mistake, ZOS made up for it in their...

Re: Cyrodiil Creatures

Reason being, they were likely a result of the Ayleids' kingship of the Tower , and thus, when humans took it, these Tower-bound beings would have been altered to suit the nature of the Nedes; and even if that never happened or people take issue with such metaphysics, these things scream Ayleid, an...

Re: Cyrodiil Creatures

You're completely right. This is something I've been struggling with as well, except I couldn't really put it into words. Morrowind has its alien bug/reptilian premise, Skyrim has its prehistorical vibe, Cyrodiil has ... exotica? Bizarro jungle? schizo-mythology? Composite creatures? We lack a them...

Re: Cyrodiil Creatures

My opinion is that Cyrodiil should be much different than real life. Morrowind, I see as being alien to the rest of Tamriel due to it's giant insectoid creatures, inhospitable environments, and odd, xenophobic social With this horn and antler theme in mind, I'd like to introduce the concept of antl...

Re: Cyrodiil Creatures

The prevalence of Daedra in Ayleid ruins already fills that role - they too have immunities to common weapons. Hollowed Wraiths: walking, hollow suits of armor. These are some concepts for Second Era Imperial Legion gear. I'm gonna say that these are animated by, let's say, their undying loyalty to...

Re: Cyrodiil Creatures

It's also a gameplay problem: "undead", like "daedra", is a creature category in the CS. It affects which weapons and spells influence them (detect life, turn undead, silver weapons, ...) Having too many undead around actually cheapens the game by reducing the usefulness of certain equipment and sp...

Re: Cyrodiil Creatures

If we have 4 different dungeon types with undead in them already, adding undead to certain ayleid ruins will not make them stand out very much anymore. I understand, didn't disagree on that. Just wanted to clarify. What are the types of undead in those, by the way? I mean, according to Fleshy/Flesh...

Re: Cyrodiil Creatures

Compared to this, almost all of our current dungeon designs require some variety of undead shuffler: Colovian Tombs, Remanite ruins, Imperial crypts and fort ruins, ... At this point, it becomes important to have some places that avert the pattern. Don't you guys have Goblin and Animal and Monster ...

Re: Ayleid Artifacts, Items, Clothing, and Clutter

There is another problem with the potion way - merchant sell/buy item class. If the WS are made as potions, the Player will only be able to sell them to alchemists, not enchanters. If they are scrolls, then it's okay. As for the MCP, I think it safe to say the majority of players use it nowadays, an...

Re: Ayleid Artifacts, Items, Clothing, and Clutter

Ah I see, makes sense. Although I was thinking not of some one-sided distinction (modest females pompous males), but more along the lines that female fashion would gravitate towards elegance (think crows) and male fashion - towards flamboyancy. Welkynd Stones There are different ways to make these ...

Re: Ayleid Artifacts, Items, Clothing, and Clutter

Ayleid male clothing was often indistinguishable from female
If we go full bird, won't it make sense to make male clothing more vibrant and pompous? Elder Scrolls in general already has very small distinction between sexes, so this theme in underexplored.

High fantasy? I don't think these are more fantasy-esque than, say, minotaurs and lamias and magic star-worshipping elves. Then again, it's up to you guys. Wisps were extremely annoying in Oblivion and I'd love to meet them in your version of Cyrod too, the same way I love cliff racers. I have a mos...

Don't know if I'm posting in the right thread, but I don't really want to make a new one.
Tyddy and Siberian Crab recently made a nordic/imperial bridge resource, I figured you guys might be interested.

Re: Jiub's Projects

Very nice! Any suggestions on the model, by the way?

Yep, it uses an ogrim nipple ring texture, I'm sorry. I'm using a custom retexture for it, so it didn't look that out of place in my game.

The textures are fine in my book, but I understand they are refitted textures for the common bull? Not sure it's a wise choice if so, as minotaurs aren't simply bulls spliced with men, but a dege...
