  1. Ancient DBC Art!

    In terms of Dark Brotherhood related art, I've done a lot of occult and theology studies and the vanilla DB symbolism is packed from ancient Egyptian style hieroglyphs to 15th century sigils so there's a broad spectrum of things to take from. Whoever is doing decorative artwork should look at the voynich manuscrit as well, something I've studied a lot but since it's never been "fully" translated it got me only more confused. However in 2014 Professor Stephen Bax started to decipher some words and images. It's pictures are wild, mostly herbal, alchemical, astrological and weird naked women with tubes. Definitely something to research to add the disturbing ethereal feel so prominent with the DB. I'll link some stuff I feel worth gaining insight from. http://beinecke.library.yale.edu/collections/highlights/voynich-manuscript https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Munich_Manual_of_Demonic_Magic https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grimoire_of_Armadel

    At first read I thought, "Do they have a spouse named Nicholas as well?" Then I clicked the link! I'll have you know I've gone by that many many harvests before your friend the traveler existed! I wish it was my gamertag, which is now an ongoing juke due to my mistranslation of German. It's Schweinbaum, in which I assumed it would be interpreted as Pig's Tree, but I forgot the s at the end of Schwein and now it's equivalent to this link my buddy sent me. https://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.spiffystudios.com%2Fimages%2Fpigtree-shirt.jpg&imgrefurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.spiffystudios.com%2Fpigtree-shirt%2F&docid=AvcCJWbXhTniPM&tbnid=dHNZJ9I4fw-BYM%3A&w=700&h=390&hl=en-us&source=sh%2Fx%2Fim

    Thank you sincerely for including me into the folds. I look forward to sharing ideas and helping out. I've merely published some poetry, my other works I never put out on the table. I'm excited to work with a professional writer who can teach me more about the art! I had applied to work on the "Beyond Skyrim" mod, before I found this forum. Our mod here however is exponentially more important to me. Their mod is a massive project, and I think it would be very neat if we could, after working on our pieces, give them advice on DB quests they could include. Their mod adds every province of tamriel to skyrim, each custom made by a team. I applied to work on Black Marsh, and want to make sure they don't forget the Brotherhood''s involvement with the An-Xileel and add the ruins of the shadowscale training facility in Archon. They won't finish for years though, some of their landmass sizes are insane, because skyrim is relatively small compared to most other provinces.

    In game books I can get started with literally now. I'll give you a bunch of writings so you can pick and choose what you like. NicholastheWanderer comes from my interest in famous hermits, like where I live we had a hermit called the leatherman, and I visit his grave every catholic holiday (he was a Catholic french immigrant). If you would like me to write up a story on my original charachter personal for DB I can! His name was Da-Kari, or the wanderer in English (argonian language of Jel). He was a hermit, considered a member of the DB, but played the role of eyes and ears. Let me know if there's a page you'd like me to post his story on or if you'd like a pm.

    It seems to be the will of Sithis! I'll push my limits and do everything to keep supporting this dev team to keep the legacy going. I know I can't do much of the intricate technical modding, but since we've last spoke I've gotten a written work published, and hope my growth in writing literature helps! I mean, I should at least write an in game book for these dark brothers and sisters right?!

    Swift, it's been so long. Great to see you came back too!

    Well no matter how long it takes, as long as the legacy lives on! Ah the forum drama, it never ceases. I like to believe it's sort of like how people can be super nice to friends, but bash their family members because in the end they are stuck family and need to forgive and carry on. This family has to stick together to complete a piece of amazing multi media, so even when some clash they're stuck together to get things done! If I can help in anyway, with working with the team, or just helping boost morale on the forums, I'm here for you all. I wish I could complete the soundtrack I started almost a decade ago and continue recording sfx but I no longer have access to a studio. I could always make low quality recordings to hand to someone with the resources to record! Like who would of thought using sliced in half cabbage banged on a piece of slate would sound like a barefoot Argonian walking around the sanctuary?! Lol

    Amadaun, it's been far to long! It's so great that you stayed after all of these years! This absolutely has made my summer a great one! AndalayBay, you all wrapped up the project in just a year?! That's a lot of dedicated members to pull that off! I know the first two teams had pulled together a decent amount of work over a long time, but I'm afraid the health issues you guys have been troubled with (I'm sorry to hear that Cray) had plagued us time and time again too. Maybe there is a curse on this project because misfortune lands on members more random than finding M'aiq! It only shows all of your perseverance though because you have finished, in great time, with a product I never imagined when we first started!

    I kind of stumbled on this mod tonight. I was on the original team. People started jumping ship and I stayed with a few to oversee the new team, but I looked in the credits and didn't recognize many, if any (this was many years ago) names. I guess a few more good people took the reigns. I'm glad to see it was finished with great acclaim, and more glad to see a sequel in the works. I'm just sad we no longer have thedarkbrotherhood.com, because that domain is now worth 2grand! It was a home for me, the people were family. It's been at least 7 or 8 years. Such nostalgia. I don't even know what to say, I feel like I'm one of the teams forgotten ancestors, but remembered through contribution of thoughts written to words creating a story. I'm so pleased to see it survived, produced beautifully, and is on to greater things. I feel like a proud parent. You were all able to do what I couldnt, to carry on with dedication, skill and knowledge unbeknownst to me. Skyrim was still only a twinkle in Bethesda''s eye. To the memories, to the future, Hail Sithis!
