  1. Virelda - The Heretical Soothsayer


    Virelda, the Heretical Soothsayer


     

    "I am Virelda. I am truth, pure and simple, yet nothing is more destructive than facing your inner self."


     

    "Then I shall defy myself once again, and put my faith in you, for it only takes one last paragon in a world gone mad to avert the gaze of endless death, and redeem what was once thought lost"


     

    Description


     

    Virelda is an Dunmer Soothsayer from times long past, seeking truth and clarity in a world of lost ideals.


     

    Custom voiced with well over five hundred lines of dialogue, Virelda is designed as a game-long companion, as well as a tragic hero, on her own quest to fulfill her visions, and overthrow the gods. She combines my dramatic writing style with a deluge of interesting topics and conversations, making her a truly memorable character that will walk beside you as you fulfill the prophecies of the Elder Scrolls, and reshape Tamriel.




    Virelda possesses a rich and unique backstory, advanced commentary on most notable locations, a fully-fledged array of relationship dialogue that reflects your actions, and dynamic reactions to the choices you make throughout the game, from completing grand questlines to helping paupers. Many of her conversations are unlocked as you travel through Tamriel, so talk to her in as many places as possible.

     

    A true seer at heart, Virelda will often make deep and insightful observations of the natural world, and enjoys quiet conversation almost as much as tarot cards and tea leaves. She will be more than happy to share her knowledge with you, providing unique books and spell tomes once a day.




    Backstory

     

    Virelda was once formless and without awareness; the primal force of truth that separated lies and fantasy from hard reality. Yet, after countless eons, when sentience first arose and began a quest for ultimate truth, so did she. She has stood by the side of countless mortals, and opened their eyes in the pivotal moments of history, where one choice must change the world.


     

    Yet, with all things, truth must change. She began to see visions, of fire and blood, and the heavens aflame. Mighty gods being cast down, and flaws appearing in the once-perfect weave of the world. When she told tale of this, none listened, and she was shunned and hated as a false prophet, when her words once rang true to all ears. Thus, she fled Cyrodiil, and began a self-imposed exile on Solstheim, in a temple where naught but lies dwell, for she wished to mock her very nature, and undo her own words.


     

    There she remains, to this very day, yet when the Dragonborn first approached, she could sense a subtle shift in the world, and knew that everything was shifting again, and there might still be hope and redemption left in this world. Thus, she wills you to walk with her, as a companion and a friend, and she shall bring ultimate truth upon all those who defy the day, and show the world that truth yet endures, no matter how dark the hour.


     

    Combat, Stats and Perks




    Virelda is devastating in ranged combat, using her unique throwing cards spell that is capable of harming any opponent. She has a wide variety of perks appropriate for an embodiment of Truth, including Atronach, Stability and Ward Absorb. AVirelda will switch to a melee weapon at close range, and is quite adept with one-handed weapons.



    She grants two perks while actively following you:



    Endless Vortex, which increases health by 100 points.



    Burning Fate, which increases Fire Resistance by 50%.

     

    Virelda starts off at level 15, and will always level with the Player, with no limit. She's a master at Destruction, Restoration, One-Handed and Heavy Armor, and is also quite adept at Alteration. Virelda also provides master-level Illusion training, and sells a wide variety of spells and tomes.


     

    Virelda runs on her own custom follower system, making her fully compatible with all follower management mods and other custom-voiced companions. She comes with a new summoning spell, Call of the Abyss, which will call her to your side while she's actively following you.

    FAQ




    Q: "I can't find Virelda, where is she?"



    A: Virelda is found in the Underground Temple of Miraak, near Raven Rock.

     

    Q: "Virelda isn't following me!"




    A: If you are using EFF or AFT or any follower mod, make sure Virelda's .esp file is below your chosen follower mod in the load order. This will then allow her to follow you.

     

    Q: "Can you make her more pretty?"




    A: Beauty is subjective, and everyone has their own interpretation. If you're not a fan of Virelda's vanilla appearance, then there is an optional file which changes her features. She will also look different if you are using any beautification mods such as XCE Character Enhancement or Ethereal Elven Overhaul.

     

    Mlee3141 has recently given his permission for anyone to change Virelda's appearance and upload the files, as long as proper credit is given (and ideally, has a link back to the original page!)




    "Consider this a formal and irrevocable declaration that from this moment on, everyone is free to use, modify, upload and change Virelda's appearance as they see fit, as long as proper credits are given." - mlee3141



    Q: "Her teeth are purple!"



    A: This is due to messed up filepaths when the mod was being made. This has been fixed in the newest update, please re-download if you haven't already.

     

    Q: "Can I marry her?"




    A: Not at the moment. Maybe in a future update.

  2. Aurlyn Dawnstone - The Reclusive Philosopher


    Aurlyn Dawnstone, the Reclusive Philosopher


     

    "I am Aurlyn. I have walked Tamriel for years uncounted, seeing nothing but violence and blood."


     

    "Perhaps it is time I take a more active role in shaping the world. If our destiny is to keep evil forever at bay, then so be it."


     

    Description


     

    Aurlyn is an Aldmer Dawn Sorceress from times long past, seeking peace and redemption in a world gone mad.


     

    Custom voiced with well over a thousand lines of dialogue, Aurlyn is designed as a game-long companion, as well as a tragic hero, on her own quest to seek a lost ideal, and unravel the mysteries of her ancient past. She combines my dramatic writing style with a deluge of interesting topics and conversations, making her a truly memorable character that will walk beside you as you fulfill the prophecies of the Elder Scrolls, and reshape Tamriel.


     

    Aurlyn possesses a rich and unique backstory, advanced commentary on most notable locations, a fully-fledged array of relationship dialogue that reflects your actions, and dynamic reactions to the choices you make throughout the game, from completing grand questlines to helping paupers. Many of her conversations are unlocked as you travel through Tamriel, so talk to her in as many places as possible.


     

    A true philosopher at heart, Aurlyn will often make deep and insightful observations of the natural world, and enjoys playing a game of riddles almost as much as reading and quiet contemplation. She will be more than happy to share her knowledge with you, providing unique books and spell tomes once a day.


     

    Backstory


     

    Her past is more varied and tenuous than you might think. Aurlyn's first memory was waking up in an Aldmeri ship, sailing through seas of bitter cold. All the other passengers were grievously wounded, and the navigator refused to speak. Through stores of books under the ship's deck, she learned she was in the Early Merethic Era. Pursued by House Direnni as soon as her ship reached port, Aurlyn has been trying to learn why she was on that ill-fated voyage ever since.


     

    To that effect, she has spent centuries sequestered in the Crystal Tower, operated an infernal machine far below the forests of Valenwood, dueled a Telvanni Wizard for an Elder Scroll, and finally sought refuge with the Greybeards, high upon the slopes of the Throat of the World.


     

    There she remains, seeking inner peace through meditation, contemplation and worship of the gods. Yet when the thundering call heralded the arrival of a new Dragonborn, Aurlyn is eager to once again take an active role in shaping the world, and patiently awaits your arrival at High Hrothgar.


     

    Oh, and no, she is not a vampire. She's lived that long for a reason, which is hinted at when asking about her past, and becomes apparent during her upcoming personal quest.


     

    Combat, Stats and Perks


     

    Aurlyn is devastating in ranged combat, using a variant of Sun Fire and Vampire's Bane that is capable of harming any opponent. She has a wide variety of perks appropriate for an ancient Dawn Sorceress, including Atronach, Stability and Ward Absorb. Aurlyn will switch to a melee weapon at close range, and is quite adept with one-handed weapons.


     

    She grants two perks while actively following you:


     

    First Light, which increases magicka by 100 points.


     

    Fires of Dawn, which increases Frost Resistance by 50%.


     

    Aurlyn starts off at level 15, and will level with the Player all the way up to level 80. She's a master at Destruction, Restoration, One-Handed and Heavy Armor, and is also quite adept at Alteration. Aurlyn also provides master-level Destruction training, and sells a wide variety of spells and tomes.


     

    Aurlyn runs on her own custom follower system, making her fully compatible with all follower management mods and other custom-voiced companions. She comes with a new summoning spell, Clarion Call, which will call her to your side while she's actively following you.
