    This is a repost from 17/3/2012 from the Dark Creations forums which have been shut down as discussed in this other topic. -------------------------------------------------------------------- This is a visually enhanced travelogue about starting a character in a deadly environment and hopefully surviving with the application of wit, luck and shenanigans. In essence, it's just me trying something different and snapping pictures of it. I hope you'll find it interesting. First of all, there is a character that I used in Oblivion; a Breton necromancer whom I intended to be my 'evil' character; not the calculated kind of evil, nor cartoon villany. Just generally an asshole. A jerk. His name is Jerkan. Look at those eyeslits, those protruding lips, that arrogant well-kempt hair. In Oblivion, he had a subtle stubble which I can't replicate now, but he also gained those stripes on his forehead. Nice. Obviously, I'm using the Live Another Life mod. I intend to redundantly pick the option which I suggested to Arthmoor myself. While I could've used the old ini tweak + batch script method that I used to try it out to begin with, it's nice to feel validated sometimes. And away I go! This is Sinderion's Field Laboratory, if it weren't obvious. It's the only safe place in Blackreach, which is full of enemies I have no business fighting at my level, especially since I play on Master difficulty. Fortunately, there are some helpful items laying around. First of all though, I choose my starting spells, which is a feature included in Skyrim Improved Magic System. Alteration: Interestingly, you can pick the Feather spell, but I go for Oakflesh instead. Destruction: I figure Frostbite is my best bet for winning chases. Conjuration: Raise Zombie is tempting, but that will never work in this place, so I choose Conjure Skeleton instead. Restoration: Necromancers always seem to love wards, but I pick Healing because I just couldn't live without it. Illusion: I've decided that I'm not gonna profess in Illusion, but it can't hurt to have Clairvoyance around, especially since I play without a compass or floating quest markers. Now let's have a look around... I raid Sinderion's ingredient stash and his (sadly empty) soul gems, and proceed to gobble one of each ingredient in one go. Amazingly, I only lost half of my health. How convenient. You can't be a necromancer and not have a dagger. In addition, I get to have an authentic dwemer artifact and not one of those tourist souvenirs from Markarth. I don't know wether this is something Arthmoor added or if it's always been there, but it may be essential in a place where you're at the bottom of the food chain. Well don't this beat all? I get Raise Zombie, Lesser Ward and Conjure Familiar. Now I can have my sweetroll and eat it too. I also find a pair of boots with a carry capacity enchantment, and an enchanted sword with fire damage in the footlocker. Apparantly, Sinderion expected to harvest many many samples of nirnroot. Finally, I discover a staff of magelight already in my inventory. Sub bro. How's that 'secret location' working out for you? I pocket his journal to formally begin the nirnroot quest. If I'm going to faff about in Blackreach, I might as well pick up noisy plants along the way. And here is Sinderion's attunement sphere. My only way out of Blackreach right now is the great lifts, and those have a tendency to close, so it helps to have one of these in case I want to get back without having to start another quest, even if it means having to clear a dungeon. I use the arcane enchanter to disenchant some of the crap I found, read the alchemy skill book, and make a poison of damage health, almost reaching level 2. Then I take a nap in the stone bed to wash away the negative effects caused by my ingredient binge and save the game.

    A short story of mine, Gaia's Breath, is due to be published towards the end of May by Midnight Street Press in an anthology called Strange Days. Trevor, the editor, has set up a Facebook page where he's posting videos from those who are in the book.Each video introduces the author, tells of the inspiration behind the story and includes a story excerpt read by the author. Here's mine:To find the Facebook page, type this in the search bar:Strange Days - Midnight Street Anthology 4A number of the writers in this anthology are well known and well published. I feel very fortunate to be included. Trevor also put my name in the middle of them all on the back cover. I can't tell you how chuffed I was when I spotted this Gaia's Breath is the third story of mine Midnight Street Press has published.

    17/3/2012 ----------------------------- I step out of the door, bask in the eerie azure glow and chug some fresh air. And here comes the first challenge of this particular game start. Yes, the first thing you encounter is a dwemer sphere guardian that can kill you in one hit. There is no way to avoid being detected, and it will always return to this spot when it's not trying to kill you. How did I get into this mess anyway? Did my mum ground me and program this thing to keep me inside? Either way, if I'm going to use Sinderion's lab as my home, it would be wise to dispose of this thing somehow, but that's a concern for later. I take my invisibility potion, which doesn't actually help me, since I was already detected. I sprint away, narrowly avoiding the guardian's first strike, and run up the stairs leading to Alftand while it fires its lethal crossbow at me. In the pitch black darkness, I somehow fall down into a recess between the platform with the entrance to Alftand and a staircase. That's when my potion wears off. The sphere guardian stalks toward me, but I decide that my position is dark and hidden enough that making more noise would be a greater risk. And then it comes peeking over the edge. Shortly after, though, it turns tail and heads back to its post, none the wiser. At this point, I creep back up and activate the crossbow that is aimed at the doorway, but the dwemer sphere is too far back to be hit. Alas. I decide to head left, jump off the platform, and whip out my staff of magelight because I cannot see anything ahead of me. With great confidence, I fire the light...into a nearby falmer. I suppose it was the noise of the staff that drew his attention, but the arcane ball of light sure didn't help. I panick and ran back up the platform, hoping it would give me an advantage if there is a fight. Fortunately, the falmer gets sidetracked. They clash for a little while on the porch of my house, until the falmer is slain. A shame, as I was hoping to have my front door to myself for once. Regardless, I notice that the guardian has been damaged by half of its health, and I get an idea. Tiptoeing into the lit area, I let the machine catch a glimpse of me. Then I sneak down this path, the sphere guardian wheeling steadily behind, and hope that I'm being quiet enough for the nearby falmer to notice my pursuer first. Amazingly, the construct becomes ensnared in a cluster of fungal jellyfish tentacles, which is noticed by a nearby lookout. I take cover behind a rock and watch as a chaurus and another falmer join the fray, the former creeping uncomfortably close past me. I also find myself right next to one of these. Suddenly, I have the urge to be a mischievous little dipshit and solve several tiny problems with one huge problem. Is there any other reason for these things to be here? It's like dropping a matchstick in a chinese fireworks stand. I pull the lever and skulk behind a group of rocks just in time to remain undetected, and start hearing the calamity. The battle does not take very long. After the pained shrieks die down, only the heavy chugging of the centurion is left. (There seems to have been an image here that I can't find anymore???) I can't conceive of a way to actually get rid of this golem, but they are a lot easier to outrun than falmer, and don't have any projectile attacks. Blackreach would be a lot more hospitable with them running amok and killing all of its other denizens. Still, I'd rather not wake one up unless I needed to. Whatever the case, the falmer dispatched the sphere guardian as intended, and I have successfully colonised the immediate area around my house. First them, then all of Blackreach!

    Integration: TSL Walkthrough View File Integration: The Stranded Light is a hugely complex - and, at times, frustratingly arcane - mod, so I thought it would be helpful to provide a more detailed spoiler file/walkthrough for the quests. This is an HTML file - all spoiler info is blanked out (highlight to read it), so don't worry about accidentally seeing something you shouldn't. I incorporated the tables from the original spoiler doc, expanded on that, and added actual walkthroughs. Note that most of it is from the CS only - I've only done a handful of the quests, but I'll update periodically as I complete them. Submitter WalkerInShadows Submitted 04/05/2020 Category Quests

    There's definitely GOG support for OBSE. You just have to download its own particular "latest" loader. It works great. Oblivion from GOG has no DRM, no overlays, it's already LAA so you don't have to use the 4gb patcher, it includes all DLC, and you can get it for $10 if it's on sale. It's a no-brainer for people who don't own Oblivion yet, and even for people that do I still suggest it highly.

    Older Brits are like that. They just love the attention and will purr away. One time when I took one of my old Brits, Britannia, to the vet, she was purring while the vet was trying to listen to her heart. The vet had to put a dab of alcohol on her nose to make her stop purring. Just a minute ago, I heard the fans in my computer really ramp up and I was wondering what was making them run so hard. One of the kittens was sleeping on the radiator!!!

    If Civ 5 is installed in a location different to Steam's default, then you need to tell the new install of Steam the Steam install directory location (not Civ 5 specifically). It should then find the game (plus any others in there) and update to show Civ 5 is installed. If Civ 5 is in the default location, then you should simply need to tell Steam to install Civ 5 - Steam will find the existing files, verify them, and only download any which are missing or edited to be different from the installation files. Civ 5 will then detect the mods already installed too. If Panda Dome creates some kind of virtual environment to run programs in, then it may be interfering with Steam's ability to find the game files. In that case, turn that feature off in Panda Dome, or see if there is a way to exclude Steam so that it runs normally. For Morrowind Launcher, it may be that Panda Dome is blocking the launcher's access to the registry, preventing the launcher from detecting the game installation. That's just a guess.

    Elsweyr's City of Rimmen View File ELSWEYR'S CITY OF RIMMEN by Iliana, Mr Siika & Auryga A playable border city in the Tamriel worldspace. Version May 2019 (Originally included in the March 2014 version of the Elsweyr Anequina mod) =================================================== The city of Rimmen is an Elsweyr border town located in the hills north-west of Leyawiin. I sliced this city out of my larger Elsweyr Anequina mod for those who want a small preview of the Elsweyr mod or just a city to visit and use as a base half way between Bravil and Leyawiin. The town is fully functional with NPCs, building interiors, merchants, trainers, city guards, a prison and a buyable player home. The land around the town is landscaped with a couple of farms, waterfalls, and roads down to the Nibenay Valley and the nearby village of Border Watch. =================================================== 1. Description 2. Requirements 3. Installation 4. Troubleshooting 5. Acknowledgements 6. Permissions =================================================== ================ 1. DESCRIPTION ================ IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ THIS! 1. Do not install this mod with Elsweyr Anequina. The city of Rimmen is already part of the Elsweyr mod and you can't install two copies of the exact same city! If you later wish to install Elsweyr Anequina, then uninstall Rimmen first. 2. You must have your in-game borders disabled or you won't be able to reach the new region. See the installation instructions to learn how. ================ 2. REQUIREMENTS ================ A. The in-game borders must be disabled. See installation instructions below. B. The latest official Oblivion patch is needed to run this mod. ================ 3. INSTALLATION ================ 1. Extract the files to your Oblivion/Data/ folder. There are only two main files - Rimmen.esp and Rimmen.bsa -, so the mod is very simply to install and uninstall! The DistandLOD folder is optional. It won't allow you to see the city at a distant (you need to run TES4LODGen to achieve that), however, it does fix the distant view of the trees in and around the city to match the actual tree placements for aesthetic purposes. The Rimmen - Voices.bsa is also optional. It simply slows down the dialogue screens. The NPCs aren't actually voiced. 2. Check the file Rimmen.esp in your mod lists. 3. The in-game borders MUST be disabled. This can be done either by-- A. By switching the "bBorderRegionsEnabled=1" to "0" in your Oblivion game ini file. You can find this ini in your folder My Documents/My Games/Oblivion. The setting can be found near the top of the ini file under the heading [General]. B. Or by installing a border removal mod, e.g. "Borderless Cyrodiil." 4. (Optional) If you wish to see the city in the distant view run TES4LODGen after installing this mod. Distant view for new types of architecture is dependent on load order, so you need to generate these yourself. If you ever change your load order run it again as the records are load order dependent. TES4LODGen is very simple to use! Just double click on the file exe from the download. 5. (Optional File) If you wish to see the domed palace tower building in the distant view (as seen in my screenshots), you can download the optional Palace FarNif Patch file and run TES4LODGen with that in place. However, it is just a copy of the palace mesh, not a properly optimized _far.nif file, so it is not recommended unless you wish to have tower visible for screenshots and the like. This patch can also be used with the ElsweyrAnequina mod which uses the same file directories and names. 6. (Optional) If you wish to create a character using any of the new races download the Custom Race Fix mod, which tweaks some of the vanilla quests to allow for new races. ================ 4. TROUBLESHOOTING ================ 1. "You can't go this way, please turn back" message means the borders haven't been disabled yet. See the installation instructions. Its just a matter of changing a single digit in a text file. 2. Game Crashes Make sure you have Bethesda's latest Official Patch installed. Also make sure that the Rimmen.bsa file, which contains all of the required meshes and textures, has been placed in your game's Data/ folder. ================ 5. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS ================ A special thanks to Mr Siika who created a large number of custom models for this mod including city architecture and slarjei bird creature, and to Auryga who created the palace and temple buildings, garden walls, bridges and ideas for the canal system. ARCHITECTURE Mr Siika (Rimmen upper and lower district buildings, city walls, marketplace stalls, Minotaur village) Auryga (Rimmen fortress and palace buildings, temple building, garden walls, bridges, terrace retaining walls) DarknessEternal (Upper class doors) LANDSCAPE & FLORA Koniption (Catnip plant) KHAJIIT & OTHER RACES AlienSlof (Khajiit retextures) Luchaire (Ohmes-raht Khajiit "Tabaxi") Veld (Khajiit black) SniperDaria (Tattooed Ohmes) ARMOR Trollf (Desert armor retextures - chain, leather, mithril) Ghogiel (Bonemold armor) Frankpants (Lamellar armor) Corthian (Scale armor) Uglulyx (Retextures of lamellar armor) WEAPONS Trollf (Peasant weapons) Exanimis (Tribal weapons) Waalx (Khajiit blades) Koniption (Meat cleaver) CLOTHES Trolff (Misc robes & clothing) KrimsynKane & Kikaimegami (Scarves) Nessa (Upper05 clothing retextures) CLUTTER Mr Siika (Market produce and meats and fish, spinning wheel, tapestry frame, clothes line, animal skulls) Koniption (Ingredients) Senten (Road signs) McMuffin (Skooma pipe) DavidWhitefang (Foods) Phaedra (Vomit & urine puddles) Chigga (Brazier) Lazarus (Tall baskets) Xiamara & Lazarus (Cushions) Lutur (Dried corn) Washington (Morrowind beverages) AndalayBay (Generic signs) DominickCryomonde (Khajiit skulls) CREATURES Mr Siika (Slarjei bird, minotaur cow, minotaur bull, minotaur chief) Corepc (Fat bellied minotaurs) Francesco (Cats) ================ 6.

    After speaking to Iliana, the plan of Elsweyr Pelletine will be as follows: The Anequina quests will be left intact. You can play them now and won't need to worry about updates touching them. My edits to the Corinthe player home will be removed. The next release will have bug fixes and the last 3 locations for the entirety of Elsweyr to be finally completed. I haven't yet spoken to Deeza about permissions to use the 2 questlines documents and use them in this mod but I will do so.

    Dura gra-Bol's House Reclaimed - And the Grab-All Gang View File  This mod started as a simple house mod and expanded into an entire smuggling faction questline - while still allowing you to choose the high road and be rewarded for killing Dura as instructed. Get to work with Larrius Varro again as he sticks his nose into more of Vvardenfell's dirty business. Or choose the profitable path of a smuggler and climb the ranks from a meager Amateur to the Boss. Earn dirty money. Or kill those dirty money-makers. Rent a house from the biggest druglord on Vvardenfell. Or legally purchase your new home and wipe the slate clean. Adds a non-faction method of starting the Dura gra-Bol bounty quest: talk to Larrius Varro after completing his Bloodbath quest. He’ll give a larger bounty (Fighters Guild takes a percentage) but no faction reputation Adds option to spare Dura gra-Bol if you accept her deal If you decide to kill Dura gra-Bol, you can purchase her house. It’ll be renamed so you can wipe that criminal’s name from your memory and your items won’t be marked as stolen from the containers any longer. You’ll also get a few extras in the house if you go this route like a “Realistic Repair”-ready anvil in your armory along with some housewarming gifts (mostly booze because, let’s be honest, what else would you really want?). Dura offers the player a business proposition to cover up her smuggling operations. Become the formal Head of Operations for a local smuggling gang and collect your weekly cut (assuming some corrupt official doesn’t need to be paid off). Rise in the ranks of a new smuggling faction. From an amatuer to a smuggling boss. Complete illicit quests for Dura to earn bonuses. Earn a larger weekly cut of the profits by completing quests and climbing the criminal ladder. Have the lease to Dura’s house transferred into your name and assume residency. The layout and features of Dura’s house has been overhauled. Still not extravagant, but matches the exterior better and adds a basement for additional storage. Clear the smugglers out of the sinkhole below your new home and maybe find some hidden secrets in your new cave. See if you can find the rat hole! Customers in Balmora want more than just skooma and moon sugar; find some unique cursed items among the contraband. Including one which will take you somewhere unexpected... Adds the sleepy fishing village of Bo-muul to a new island in the Bitter Coast which is more than it appears. Depending on which side you take, either work with the smugglers living in Bo-muul or cleanse it entirely with another Bloodbath sponsored by Larrius Varro. Get involved with political intrigue as the corruption of Hlaalu officials come into the light. Acquire a magical belt which was unobtainable in the original game if you choose the right path. Discover that Larrius Varro is a member of the religious Talos Cult. If you side with Dura, use that information against him! Explore a new area of Arkngthand teeming with new types of Centurions standing between you and those profitable dwemer artifacts! Fixes the dialogue entries which refer to Dura gra-Bol as a “he” (perhaps those commoners can be excused, it’s a common mistake with orcs) Lightweight, 100% vanilla mod.  To start the new questline, either get to the Fighters Guild stage with Eydis Fire-Eye where you're sent to kill Dura gra-Bol, or complete Larrius Varro's Bloodbath quest to get the bounty quest from him and then talk to Dura before you gut her. If you decide to side with Dura, just keep following that questline. If you decide to kill Dura after all, talk to Larrius Varro to get some more work.

    The section I told you to read explains it. It’s not a problem. The skill cost goes up as your character attains higher levels of mastery. Novice level skills are the base cost, apprentice level cost 1 point more and so on. It also depends on whether you chose the specialization or “jack of all trades” setting.

    Jimi was re-admitted to hospital last week due to an infection. He was released today and we celebrated by ordering in dinner. He had a chili dog. I can’t think of a better way to recover from hospital food!

    I'm back working on DBC. I've already squashed a bunch of bugs and have added a new option for completing a certain nasty contract that I think people will really like. The last quest in Awakening needs to be rewritten in preparation for Consequences so you'll need to play through the mod again if you've finished it already. Sorry about that, but with the fixes and the voice acting, hopefully you'll be keen to check it out again. The big fixes in this release involve preventing some changes DBC makes to certain characters from kicking in too soon. If you have Awakening in your load order now, I recommend removing it and waiting for the new release, unless you're partway through the quest line already. If you are, stop playing before you have to turn in the dagger. There was a logic loophole that I missed previously. I've also fixed up our locations so they can either be visited before the mod starts or they are inaccessible, using various methods to hide them. I've also balanced the goodies out a bit more. Some chests were grossly overpowered and I've corrected that, while a big dungeon with a certain vampire didn't have enough goodies. I've also added a bit of "backstory" by making a location available to visit and clear before DBC starts. Then when the associated DBC quest does start, the state of the dungeon makes more sense.

    You’ll need to install Awakening anew and play through it again when I release the new version. There are some major bug fixes and I have to change the final quest on both sides in preparation for Consequences. I am working on DBC again, when time permits.

    New version uploaded. Lots of major bug fixes in this release, including support for 4K monitors and Northern UI. Uninstall the previous version, anneal the BAIN package for your UI and then install the new version. Do NOT use your Oblivion XP ini file from the previous version. Back up your current ini file before uninstalling and then transfer your changes to the new ini file after installing the new version. If you don't use BAIN then you may need to reinstall your UI after uninstalling Oblivion XP to restore the original files. Change Log 4.4.5 fixed prompt to initialize Oblivion XP after first level-up bug fixed bug in point award for reading scrolls deleted generic_background75.xml. No longer used. cleaned up menus. Parameterized more elements, removed duplicate definitions. Fixed text wrap length so the menu works with other languages. changed colour of skill cost text to make it easier to see. fixed level-up menu for high resolution monitors (1440p and above). enhanced Shivering Isles location discovery. Previously it only gave a static number of points. Now you'll get a varying number of points based on distance to nearest city. added option to hide HUD message log completely. See messageLogVisible variable in ini file. If you hide the message log, you should turn off the XP gained chime too (messageSoundXP). Replace your Oblivion XP ini file with the one from this package. Back up your ini before installing the new package so you can copy your changes over. DO NOT use the old ini file. made Oblivion XP compatible with Northern UI thanks to DavidJCobb. added NMM installation script created by Haikem. Thanks Haikem! updated installation scripts for new package structure.

    Amadaun, check this out. A woman after your own heart! Also, I own that knitting machine, except I don’t have the motor. My mother-in-law did. She created the patterns on computer, fed them into the machine, set it up with the motor and then would go do other stuff while it knitted a sweater. Oh, and she was in her eighties!

    With Sifonseal's permission, I'm sharing a GIMP file of his FOMO map that can be exported and used in Dynamic Map. I put some of the new lands on his map into new layers; that way you can hide the layers for the lands you don't use before exporting as a DDS and putting it in your game. It's not as slick as Dynamic Map's functionality, but Sifonseal's is perhaps the best-looking, most complete map of Tamriel there is, and this way you can put it in your game! (There's probably a fairly easy way to do this in Dynamic Maps itself, but I haven't taken the time to figure it out and don't know that I will.) Here's what you need: GIMP, which is an open-source image editor like Photoshop Dynamic Map. Install the Core and Tamriel Heightmaps folders using Wrye Bash. Here's what to do: Download the file and open it in GIMP. Open the "Layer - Brushes" window. Click the open-eye icon to hide the elements of the map you don't want to use. You can click the same spot to show them again. Under the "Image" menu, click "Merge Visible Layers." Under the "File" menu, click "Export." Change the file's name to "FOMO Tamriel.dds" and click "Export". Dismiss the warning about not being able to write a volume map. Under the "Compression" menu, choose "BC2 / DXT3." Move the "FOMO Tamriel.dds" file to the /textures/menus/DynamicMap/ folder in your Oblivion Data folder. Open the Dynamic Map.ini file, found in /Data/Ini. Select all, then paste the following into the document, then save. 8. Run Archive Invalidation, just to be safe. It seemed like it was necessary for the new map to take. I may make a new version to put a few other areas, like Sutch or Coldstone, into layers, so this map has even more options. Do mention if you have any other ideas! Here's that link again: FOMO Tamriel.xcf

    Over a month ago I assembled a new PC. Intel i7-7700k, Nvidia GTX1070, 16gb DDR4-3000 ram and so on. Since then I've been slowly amassing what I call my "experimental Oblivion install," in which I intent to push graphics to the breaking point with hi-res textures, Oblivion Reloaded, an ENB, extra UL modules and so on. (My long established over 2k hour Oblivion seconded play-through remains intact on what is now my secondary computer.) It remains very much a work-in-progress, with a number of visual issues to be resolved or at least minimized. Plus, I've had to back out of a few very desirable new additions due to conflicts with old favorites for which no patch seems to exist. Be that as it may, will showcase a few (?) images representing the best of my progress thus far: A scenic early daylight view of the Imperial Isle near the Prison Sewer Exit. The face seen here and following shots doesn't not necessarily reflect what the OCOv2 version of my decrepit avatar will end up looking like, assuming this build morphs into an honest play-through, which might not happen. Note too that I'm not yet totally satisfied with free-standing grasses. Exploring Vilverin. I use a combo of Cava Obscura, Real Lights, OR and an ENB, which makes interior very dark indeed. So dark a torch (or spell) is mandatory for "dungeon" crawls. I like realistic darkness, while admitting that in one aspect it makes the game unrealistic...carrying a torch in the dark SHOULD announce my avatar's presence to every enemy anywhere reasonably close by. I've used these particular HD interior textures so many years I no longer recall who made them. Imperial City Market District. Imperial City Arena District. A mundane issue...being used to HD textures throughout IC, the blurry stone to the left of the guardsman's immediate left bugs me to no end. A nighttime view of Elven Gardens District. As with interiors, I prefer a dark night sky. The Imperial Sewers. Betty's Sewer Textures, wet variant, possibly my favorite interior textures. At present OR sewer water is all but invisible in-game. I just recently got wind of a way to possibly correct this. Near Fort Uresek. My OCOv2 avatar has recently crossed Lake Rumare via Imperial Isle East Bridge (Roads of Cyrodiil) and, just prior to this capture, killed a wolf. From here he will enter and clear the ruin, gathering decent loot in the process. I intended to observed him continue on to Cheydinhal afterward. Alas, it was not to be. He handled the bandit at the first ambush point alone the Blue with relative ease. The same can not be said for the black bear encountered a bit further east. It wasn't even close! As this build doesn't not yet make saves beyond one just prior to the Imperial Prison Sewer Exit, it was game over with no point in reloading. Exploring Ancient Yews forest. Further forest exploration. I never used this UL module prior to the experimental build, and obviously missed out on some very nice scenery. I'm going to re-evaluate several other UL modules bypassed in the past, plus maybe audition a few Hesu Collection modules provided they conflict with nothing already installed or come with appropriate patches.

    "The Culture of Hotaji Oasis" There is a village of the Hotaji tribe stretched around the picturesque eponymous oasis. The ancient traditions of the tribe was fully preserved thanks to deep isolation from the outside world. Hence the architecture of the village and many other elements of ancient culture survived to this day in this Divines-forsaken place. The gods of Hotaji are very similar to their traditional images, which further strengthens the assumption of their ancient origin. The use the word "Tomo" for their gods, which means "nature", "law". All gods together are called "Ratomo" ("strong laws"), and the chief deity of their pantheon, the ancestor of all other gods, is also named Ratomo, which can be translated as "Great god". The current head of the pantheon is Ramangai, sun god who grants life. His right hand is young Tomei, who's helping the souls of the dead to find their way into another world. Utatori is the secret keeper who separates the permitted knowledge from the forbidden. The great warrior Ransei protects from the enemies and guides hunters to strike a sure hit. Mo-G'yetang, Ransei's brother, is the patron of all skilled men. Ratomo's wife is Tavadotomo, our familiar goddess of fertility and sky, not quite different from her modern version. She is assisted by beautiful JitÅndo, the goddess of art and harmony, and the wise goddess Tuenara, the Hearthkeeper. Kept aloof are Noroigura, trickster god who is treated as the cause of all troubles, and evil Syatokashi, the master of storms, hurricanes, and droughts, the one who wishes to sow only destruction. The elder of the tribe, the only one who knows our language, has told me this legend. "At the beginning of time we all, the gods, the people, lived on a large flat boat in the midst of the waves. It was because there was only one small island in the sea, which had not enough space to even one family. However, everyone lived happily. Chief Ratomo and his wife Tavadotomo gave life to other gods and men, and sharp-sighted Ramangai saw to it that the sun was not too bright and not tortured anyone with thirst. But then the greedy Noroigura decided that the life was not good enough, and the pitching was too severe. He persuaded the skilful Mo-G'yetang to dismantle the ship and build from it the large multi-tiered Pagoda on the island. This place was named Hotaji, and everyone began to live there. "But the evil god Syatokashi sighted the Pagoda from afar and decided to devour anyone who lived there. The seer Utatori revealed the plan and warned the wise mistress Tuenara. Tuenara judged that it was necessary to break the Pagoda, before Hotaji was found by Syatokashi. She persuaded the beautiful JitÅndo to share a night with the great warrior Ransei so he would agree to destroy the Pagoda, because it was possible only to his strength. Tavadotomo caused rain to slow down Syatokashi, as Ransei came to the Pagoda and was going to strike it with his sword. But he was impeded by Noroigura who felt sorry for the Pagoda, and the sword pierced Noroigura's heart. Noroigura didn't die, because at the time no one knew the concept of death, but his spilled blood softened the island soil, and the Pagoda collapsed. Without the old boat, everyone was going to sink down and would have lived on the sea floor, but the greedy Noroigura grabbed one of splinters, and the other gods and men followed his example when they saw that he is a-floating. "For long years, men-of-hotaji drifted slowly on the waves. During this time the god Tomei was born to JitÅndo and Ransei. Tomei didn't know a happy life yet, and therefore he decided to lead the oldest and worthiest people to the sky, believing that the better life awaits there. Many years later, the waves drove men-of-hotaji upon the far shores. The Hotaji, with no Ratomo left among them by this time (even Tomei was spending more and more time at the sky), went deep into the desert, deciding that they will be able to hide there from the devastating Syatokashi. Besides, everyone was heartily sick of pitching. Since then, they live near the oasis, which gives everything necessary for a happy life. And no one is building pagodas more than two palm trees in height."
