      Orphan Attachments   07/31/2018

      I have been doing some housekeeping lately and I've noticed that I had a lot of orphaned attachments. Attachments get orphaned when the PM or post is deleted without removing the attachment first. Deleting a PM or post does not delete the attachment and the file or image remain on the server. I'd like to ask all members to go through their attachments and delete any attachments you don't need anymore or those that have been orphaned. Where can I get a list of my attachments? Click on your display name in the upper right corner of the forums and pick "My Attachments" from the drop-down list. How can I tell an attachment is orphaned? If the PM has been deleted, you'll see a message like this in your attachment list: Unfortunately there is no message if the post has been deleted, so please check your old posts. We do purge old birthday threads every once in a while. Also some hosted projects have been shut down, so you may have orphaned attachments on one of those locations. Thanks!

  1. [RELz] Tales of Cyrodiil

    Tales of Cyrodiil View File Name: Tales of Cyrodiil Version: 1.01 Date: 2018-09-14 Category: Quests Author: Cliffworms ================= Requirements: ================= Oblivion 1.2.416 Oblivion Script Extender Homepage: http://obse.silverlock.org Elys Universal Silent Voice DarNified UI (with the option for smaller fonts) or any similar mod that reduces the fonts' size ================= Description: ================= "Some of the greatest adventures have had their starts in smoky, noisy taverns." - The Daggerfall Manual, p.58 Tales of Cyrodiil adds 14 quests for you to embark on. These adventures are inspired by some of Daggerfall's side quests you can get from innkeepers and shopkeepers. Unlike Daggerfall, the Tales of Cyrodiil are unique and not randomly generated. Also, I've greatly expanded them by adding new outcomes, dialogues and ways to complete them. ================= Details: ================= The quest givers can be found in most of Cyrodiil's cities. One can be found in a roadside tavern. Asking about rumors in town may lead you to adventures. Want to know where to find the quest givers? Check the bottom of the document. Quests vary from the classic "fetch me this" to more complex adventures, though even the most basic have a lot of dialogue to make them interesting and have multiple ways to complete them. Impersonate a coward at a duel, lend a hand to a noble who mistakenly gifted fake gold ingots to his contacts, lift the curse from a wraith's skeletal hand, help a noblewoman in preventing her husband's ransom... or betray her and save him, and more. In addition to the quests, completing vanilla Oblivion's quests will increase or decrease your disposition towards NPCs and factions, depending on how you complete them. For example, taking care of our favorite paranoid Wood Elf in Skingrad will net you a better reputation with the town's citizens, in particular with the three people the Wood Elf targeted. On the opposite, botching a Thieves Guild job will lower your disposition with your guildmates and probably the factions linked to that quest, if any. Note that these changes are done in a separate script, meaning that no changes have been done to Oblivion's vanilla scripts, therefore making this compatible with mods that change Oblivion's quests. ================= Quest mechanics ================= - Time limit Most quests must be completed in a limited time. Some are days, others are weeks. Bandits won't hold someone hostage foverer. You'll always be informed of the time limit. Failing to complete the quest in time will result in failure. - No essential NPCs. No essential items Indeed, most of the related quests' NPCs can die and most quest items can be dropped or sold. For most quests, the death of quest NPCs will result in failure. Don't worry though. The NPCs stay inside cities so the only way they could die is if you had a hand in it. For items, you'll always be able to tell the NPC you lost the quest item, resulting again in a failure...but that could be a lie and it'd allow you to keep the items for yourself. - Skill checks in dialogue In most quests, you can bargain your reward using Mercantile. You may also be able to use Speechcraft. To identify skill checks, you will see [M] or [ S ] before your answer, for Mercantile and Speechcraft, respectively. Having Luck of 60 or more helps with skill checks. - Voiceless, choice-based dialogue Most of the quest dialogue is choice-based, allowing you to ask questions about the task, accept or refuse it and bargain your reward. Some topics are also added when, for example, you ask around for directions to one of the NPCs or a location. Finally, all the new dialogue is not voice acted. - Pre-quest, present-quest and post-quest rumors People will have rumors to say before the quest, during the quest and after the quest. They vary depending on the outcome, if you fail or succeed the quest. - On the importance of faction relations Some of the quests have optional paths if you are a specific faction member or if you have good relations with them. For example, in A Noble's Debts, being a Thieves Guild member or having good relations with them will allow you to receive a letter from the Guild to give you hints on where the lost loan is located. - No new dungeons or locations Quests NPCs are placed inside the game's cities and the quests take place inside vanilla locations only. The dungeons used for those quests are existing Oblivion dungeons that have no quest linked to them. This allows for greater compatibility, preventing conflicts with mods that add new locations or change the landscapes. - Rewards Most quests reward the player with gold, others give not too powerful magical items. All quests give a faction relation bonus/malus with the city in which the quest takes place or the factions that were implicated in the quest. For example, helping a nobleman from Cheydinhal will give you better disposition with the nobility in general and the people of Cheydinhal. On the opposite, botching a quest or betraying your quest giver if the opportunity arises will drop your disposition with the related factions. After all, the quest giver will talk about how good or bad you did his job with his friends and neighbors. - Difficulty Most quests use Oblivion's leveling system for difficulty as I believe it easier for balance. Some NPCs are fixed, though. Overhauls that changes Oblivion's default leveled lists for equipment will work with Tales of Cyrodiil. - Oblivion XP integration Users of Oblivion XP will be rewarded for completing quests, succeeding at skill checks in dialogue and will receive a small amount for failing quests. - Optional quest markers By default, quest markers for Tales of Cyrodiil's quests are disabled. Sufficient descriptions and directions are given to find a location or an NPC. If you still want to use quest markers, you will have the option on the first quest you accept. If you change your mind afterwards, open the console window and input the following command : set TOCConfig.QuestMarkers to 1 ======================== Incompatibility/Compatibility: ======================== Compatible : Better Dungeons, Snu's Dungeons, Unique Landscapes, Productive Mines Minor incompatibilities : Legion-Occupied Forts (An enemy NPC and creature are added to Fort Alessia and Fort Chalman. The worst that'll happen is that these two enemies will attack the legionnaires and those two quests' storyline won't make much sense, but you'll be able to complete them.

Gualtierus challenged Marcurio to a duel. The problem is, Marcurio is no fighter and he's seeking a sword for hire to impersonate him and win the heart of Elorya. -Defamation- Rumors are spreading about a Redguard named Iminda. Apparently, he has taken a goblin for a lover, he keeps slaves, is a pariah or even beats his spouse! Needless to say, Iminda wants to put a stop to those rumors and is looking for an investigator to find the source of those false spreadings. =Bravil= -A Mix Up- (Fame/Infamy >= 10 or Hero of Kvatch/Master of Fighters Guild/Arena Grand Champion/Mages Guild Arch-Mage required) A Khajiit has had his emerald stolen by someone... who looks like you! Could it be really you? =Cheydinhal= -Counterfeit Gold- A nobleman's friend had the brilliant idea of giving him false gold bricks as a gift. That nobleman had the even more brilliant idea of giving them away to his allies. The problem is, he has now realized they were fake and they've already been given away. Retrieve at least one of them and you will be rewarded. Retrieve them all and you'll be handsomely rewarded. -The Daedric Stone- An Altmer sorceress is searching for a daedric lodestone for her research. Her assistant, another Altmer, arrived in Cheydinhal to hire someone brave enough to recover it from Ayleid ruins filled with conjurers and daedra. The dremora guarding it may have another plan in mind...who will you trust? =Chorrol= -To Assist the Fate- Noblewoman Morgorya Coppercroft received word that her good-for-nothing, cheating husband named Theodyn Coppercroft has been captured by bandits and held for ransom. Of course, Morgorya doesn't want to ransom Theodyn but his cousin wants to. You may complete this quest in multiple ways... =Imperial City= -The Telvanni Duel- At the Foaming Flask in the Imperial City, a furious Dark Elf from Sadrith Mora is causing a bit of a ruckus. He keeps drinking and challenging the unfortunate patrons to a duel. Will you be the one to accept his challenge? -A Noble's Debts- A merchant loaned gold to a nobleman under the condition that the merchant keeps a deed to a valuable piece of property. Now, the nobleman vanished without a trace and the deed was stolen. This has hit the merchant's finances pretty hard and he seeks someone to find the deed, retrieve the loaned gold or, if all fails, find the nobleman. -The Wraith's Hand- A very anxious man is looking for a courier to deliver a skeletal relic to a priest. Rumors say this hand used to belong to a vengeful spirit who still wanders Tamriel looking for it... =Leyawiin= -The Ransom- Argonian Kal-Ma of Leyawiin is beyond herself with grief. Her husband has been captured by the Thieves Guild and those good-for-nothing outlaws are asking a ransom or they will kill their hostage. Will you use fighting, diplomacy or wits to solve the case? =Skingrad= -A Rare Book- An Argonian savant in Skingrad would like to hire an adventurer to recover the ancient tome "Vampires of the Illiac Bay" from Ayleid ruins nearby. -The Switcheroo- Browen, a down-on-her-luck traveling merchant staying at the Two Sisters Lodge in Skingrad, has been betrayed by her former business partner. Indeed, Browen was going to warn the authorities when she discovered that her partner was involved in smuggling. In fact, her partner hired a courier to deliver false accusations about Browen to Wayrest's Guild of Merchants. Browen is looking for someone to intercept the courier before he reaches Wayrest and sneak in a letter in his backpack denouncing her partner and remove the false accusations about her. Will you be quick enough? =Wilderness= -The Barbarian Duel- At the Imperial Bridge Inn, an Orc Barbarian is seeking an opponent for a duel to the death. Needless to say, nobody, even the drunk Imperial Guard who visits the inn, has accepted. -An Unexpected Journey- A Wood Elf staying at Bleaker's Way's inn is seeking an adventurer for an unknown but certainly dangerous task given by his master. The master promises 500 gold to the adventurer who will complete this mysterious task. Will you be the one? Submitter Cliffworms Submitted 09/13/2018 Category Quests  
  2. [WIPz] Oblivifall - Tales of Cyrodiil

    Greetings, Cliffworms here. After a long halt, an expanded family last summer and, oh my, a forum change, I have returned. My main goal is to release my unfinished projects with the few spare moments I have. Without further ado, I present you another Oblivifall chapter : Tales of Cyrodiil. What is it about? Tales of Cyrodiil will add 15 new quests to the game. These adventures are inspired by some of Daggerfall's side quests you can get from innkeepers and shopkeepers. Unlike Daggerfall, the Tales of Cyrodiil are not unique and not randomly generated. Also, I've greatly expanded them by adding new outcomes, dialogues and ways to complete them. Here is a brief description of each new quest : The Telvanni Duel At the Foaming Flask in the Imperial City, a furious Dark Elf from Sadrith Mora is causing a bit of a ruckus. He keeps drinking and challenging the unfortunate patrons to a duel. Will you be the one to accept his challenge? The Barbarian Duel At the Imperial Bridge Inn, an Orc Barbarian is seeking an opponent for a duel to the death. Needless to say, nobody, even the drunk Imperial Guard who visits the inn, has accepted. Two Cowards In Anvil, Marcurio Orius and Gualtierus Turrianus are in conflict to gain the love of Elorya Hawkham. Gualtierus challenged Marcurio to a duel (yes, dueling is getting popular). The problem is, Marcurio is no fighter and he's seeking a sword for hire to impersonate him and win the heart of Elorya. To Assist the Fate In Chorrol, noblewoman Morgorya Coppercroft received word that her good-for-nothing, cheating husband named Theodyn Coppercroft has been captured by bandits and held for ransom. Of course, Morgorya doesn't want to ransom Theodyn but his cousin wants to. She is looking to hire someone who could prevent Theodyn from being ransomed. What will you do? Kill Theodyn's cousin? Steal the ransom and keep it or free Theodyn yourself, thus betraying Morgorya? Or barge in the bandits' hideout and kill him? You decide. (My favourite quest I think) A Noble's Debts A merchant loaned gold to a nobleman under the condition that the merchant keeps a deed to a valuable piece of property. Now, the nobleman vanished without a trace and the deed was stolen. This has hit the merchant's finances pretty hard and he seeks someone to find the deed, retrieve the loaned gold or, if all fails, find the nobleman. A Rare Book An Argonian savant in Skingrad would like to hire an adventurer to recover the ancient tome "Vampires of the Illiac Bay" from Ayleid ruins nearby. Counterfeit Gold In Cheydinhal, a nobleman's friend had the brilliant idea of giving him false gold bricks as a gift. That nobleman had the even more brilliant idea of giving them away to his allies. The problem is, he has now realized they were fake and they've already been given away. Retrieve at least one of them and you will be rewarded. Retrieve them all and you'll be handsomely rewarded. A Mix Up In Bravil, a Khajiit is asking around for an individual who looks like you. Apparently, his gem has been stolen and he's looking for the culprit. Could it be really you? An Unexpected Journey A Wood Elf staying at Bleaker's Way's inn is seeking an adventurer for an unknown but certainly dangerous task given by his master. The master promises 500 gold to the adventurer who will complete this mysterious task. Will you be the one? Defamation In Anvil, rumors are spreading about a Redguard named Iminda. Apparently, he has taken a goblin for a lover, he keeps slaves, is a pariah or even beats his spouse! Needless to say, Iminda wants to put a stop to those rumors and is looking for an investigator to find the source of those false spreadings. The Ransom Argonian Kal-Ma of Leyawiin is beyond herself with grief. Her husband has been captured by the Thieves Guild and those good-for-nothing outlaws are asking a ransom or they will kill their hostage. The ransom is the only fortune the Argonian couple have. Will you ransom the husband, knowing the couple will lose their wealth? Will you persuade the kidnappers to release their hostage? Or will you just kill the thieves? The Wraith's Hand A very anxious man is looking for a courier to deliver a skeletal relic to a priest. Rumors say this hand used to belong to a vengeful spirit who still wanders Tamriel looking for it... The Switcheroo Browen, a down-on-her-luck traveling merchant staying at the Two Sisters Lodge in Skingrad, has been betrayed by her former business partner. Indeed, Browen was going to warn the authorities when she discovered that her partner was involved in smuggling. In fact, her partner hired a courier to deliver false accusations about Browen to Wayrest's Guild of Merchants. Browen is looking for someone to intercept the courier before he reaches Wayrest and sneak in a letter in his backpack denouncing her partner and remove the false accusations about her. Will you be quick enough? The Birthday Present The birthday of rat-catcher Tasius' sister is in a few days and he wants to give her a last-minute present. His job and the preparation for his sister's birthday keeping him busy, he's looking for someone to buy some red-tinted nightshade from an Argonian merchant. What appears to be a simple delivery job may turn out to be more dramatic if you dig deep enough... The Daedric Stone An Altmer sorceress is searching for a daedric lodestone for her research. Her assistant, another Altmer, arrived in Cheydinhal to hire someone brave enough to recover it from Ayleid ruins filled with conjurers and daedra. The dremora guarding it may have another plan in mind...who will you trust? Quest mechanics Time limit : Most quests must be completed in a limited time. Some are days, others are weeks. Bandits won't hold someone hostage foverer. You'll always be informed of the time limit before accepting the quest. Failing to complete the quest in time will result in failure. No Essential NPCs. No Essential Items : Indeed, all of the related quests' NPCs can die and all quest items can be dropped or sold. For most quests, the death of quest NPCs will result in failure. Don't worry though. The NPCs stay inside cities so the only way they could die is if you had a hand in it. For items, you'll always be able to tell the NPC you lost the quest item, resulting again in a failure...but that could be a lie and it'd allow you to keep the items for yourself. Voiceless, choice-based dialogue and skill checks : Most of the quest dialogue is choice-based, allowing you to ask questions about the task, accept or refuse it and bargain your reward. There are indeed skill checks when you try to negociate your reward or persuade an NPC. Having good luck allows the skills checks to be easier to pass. Some topics are also added when, for example, you ask around for directions to one of the NPCs or a location. Finally, all the new dialogue is not voice acted. The mod uses Elys Universal Silent Voice. Pre-quest, present-quest and post-quest rumors : People will have rumors to say before the quest, during the quest and after the quest. They vary depending on the outcome, if you fail or suceed the quest. On the importance of faction relations : Some of the quests have optional paths if you are a faction member or if you have good relations with them. For example, in A Noble's Debts, being a Thieves Guild member or having good relations with them will allow you to be receive a letter from the Guild to give you hints on where the lost loan is located. No new dungeons or locations : Quests NPCs are placed inside the game's cities and the quests take place inside vanilla locations only. The dungeons used for those quests are existing Oblivion dungeons that have no vanilla quest linked to them. This allows for greater compatibility, preventing conflicts with mods that add new locations or change the landscapes. Optional quest markers : By default, quest markers for Tales of Cyrodiil's quests are disabled. Sufficient descriptions and directions are given to find a location or an NPC. If you still want to use quest markers, you will need to enter a simple command in the console window. Rewards : Most quests reward the player with gold, others give not too powerful magical items. All quests give a faction relation bonus/malus with the city in which the quest takes place or the factions that were implicated in the quest. For example, helping a nobleman from Cheydinhal will give you better disposition with the Nobility in general and the people of Cheydinhal. On the opposite, botching a quest or betraying your quest giver if the opportunity arises will drop your disposition with the related factions. After all, the quest giver will talk about how good or bad you did his job with his friends and neighbors. Difficulty : Most quests use Oblivion's leveling system for difficulty as I believe it easier for balance. Some NPCs are fixed, though. State of the project All 15 quests are complete and are mostly playable. What needs to be done is pretty much testing. Since quest NPCs can be killed and quest items lost, I need to review all quests to make sure dialogue entries, outcomes and journal entries have been written in case your evil characters decide to keep the valuable items you were supposed to deliver or if they decide to mercilessly assassinate an hostage they were supposed to save. It's a project that I've been working on and off for the last years and I'm excited to finally see it so close to release. I don't have an ETA, but I hope to be able to release it soon. Now, speaking of testing, if some of you are interested in trying it, let me know and I'll send it to you. There it is then, my latest project. Questions? Comments? :)

Will you be the one to accept his challenge? -A Noble's Debts- A merchant loaned gold to a nobleman under the condition that the merchant keeps a deed to a valuable piece of property. Now, the nobleman vanished without a trace and the deed was stolen. This has hit the merchant's finances pretty hard and he seeks someone to find the deed, retrieve the loaned gold or, if all fails, find the nobleman. -The Wraith's Hand- A very anxious man is looking for a courier to deliver a skeletal relic to a priest. Rumors say this hand used to belong to a vengeful spirit who still wanders Tamriel looking for it... =Leyawiin= -The Ransom- Argonian Kal-Ma of Leyawiin is beyond herself with grief. Her husband has been captured by the Thieves Guild and those good-for-nothing outlaws are asking a ransom or they will kill their hostage. Will you use fighting, diplomacy or wits to solve the case? =Skingrad= -A Rare Book- An Argonian savant in Skingrad would like to hire an adventurer to recover the ancient tome "Vampires of the Illiac Bay" from Ayleid ruins nearby. -The Switcheroo- Browen, a down-on-her-luck traveling merchant staying at the Two Sisters Lodge in Skingrad, has been betrayed by her former business partner. Indeed, Browen was going to warn the authorities when she discovered that her partner was involved in smuggling. In fact, her partner hired a courier to deliver false accusations about Browen to Wayrest's Guild of Merchants. Browen is looking for someone to intercept the courier before he reaches Wayrest and sneak in a letter in his backpack denouncing her partner and remove the false accusations about her. Will you be quick enough? =Wilderness= -The Barbarian Duel- At the Imperial Bridge Inn, an Orc Barbarian is seeking an opponent for a duel to the death. Needless to say, nobody, even the drunk Imperial Guard who visits the inn, has accepted. -An Unexpected Journey- A Wood Elf staying at Bleaker's Way's inn is seeking an adventurer for an unknown but certainly dangerous task given by his master. The master promises 500 gold to the adventurer who will complete this mysterious task. Will you be the one?

    Certainly. I am squashing the last few bugs I've encountered and then it'll be available to test.

    Great! Putting 0.5 works. Maybe I'll add 30 XP for botching quests though. The player's character did learn something about failing.

    Thank you for the info. The XP Bonuses work well for dialogue skill checks and they're correct when completing a quest. It's a very nice and easy to implement, kudos! Is it possible to prevent the player from getting XPs for failing quests though? I tried to put 0 XP as a "reward" for botching a quest, but it still gives an amount of XPs based on the number of quest stages.

    Thank you for the information. Putting the extra XP for passing skill checks would be rewarding for the player. Unfortunately, I can't increase a player's skill advancement for users without Oblivion XP. I'll add the lines to the entries, test it and send the file to you once I'm done. I also decided to put the quest "Birthday Present" on hold for the first release. I see more outcomes than I initially thought. The quest involves a brother seeking to poison his sister at her wedding because she inherited their father's wealth. In truth, the sister took extra care of the father and fed him lies about his son so she could inherit his fortunes. The brother hires you to get the poison (though he only says he wants a special flower, hiding the truth about the poison) from an Argonian alchemist, who turns out to be a member of the Dark Brotherhood. You can do the job normally, fetching the item and giving it to the quest giver. Or : - Discover the flower's poisonous properties thanks to your Alchemy or if you show it to can alchemist. Then : - Confront the brother and negociate a better reward. - Confront the brother and arrest him. - Confront the brother and don't care. - Confront the brother and propose to assassinate his sister yourself. - Confront the brother and, if you are a Listener in the Dark Brotherhood, offer him membership if he carries the deed. (He will show up at the Cheydinhal Sanctuary eventually) - Confront the brother and say you'll resolve their dispute with words. - Give the flower to the sister, warning her of the poison. Much of these options were added as I worked on the quest in the editor. And now I'll need to rewrite parts of it so all possbilities can work. Anyhow, off to add extra script lines.

    It would be very interesting to make it compatible with Oblivion XP. Could I award XP points for skill checks? What do I need to do? I could add the lines to make it compatible before sending it to you. This way, you'd be able to doublecheck if the XPs are given correctly as well. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Thank you Mercer. Would you be interested in testing it before release? It's getting difficult to find testers for Oblivion mods these days.

    Thanks! Leonardo, the bandit mod was mostly a concept of some sorts. I realized that while it's interesting to be able to negociate and even befriend each bandit group, the system I had designed to do that would be redundant after a few encounters. It would be better if the interactions would be different with each or most of the bandit groups. So seeing the scale of what that would imply, it's still sitting in my hard drive. Should anyone be interested in beta testing Tales of Cyrodiil, while I'm still finishing up the "Birthday Present" quest, let me know. It'll help to see if the quests are well balanced or if there are bugs. (Of course there will be!)
