Hello my dear Readers! 

 

Im happy to bring the second part of the crossover project I did with @Devianna . We finally finished the second story of the Dark Alliance.

 

This took a bit more longer time then initally planned, as it well got way more expanded then ever intended with more extra plot and scenes. 

 

Original idea was making two canon short story for both Trinn and Gauis Magnus what functions as an extra background and interactions for these character as well more screentime and extra story content for both Trinn's necromancer Chonicles and Gauis's role in Gwynolda's tale..

 

Now since Gauis isn't an actual protagonist in my story, this part is more linked to his story part of Gwynolda's story and set before it, as well some extra content for him.. As for Trinn since she is protagonist of these two chapters, she got a lot of screentime 😊

 

Check the first part of the Dark Alliance 😊

Many thanks for @Devianna  for this crossover, it was really a lot of fun to make it and work with her together on this small project... We really enjoyed making the scenarios, writing and the planning together..

 

Have a fun 😁

The Dark Alliance

part 2

Few months ago...

 

City of Solitude Greeted a few powerful guest in that day...

 

enb_2019_11_19_23_00_49_82.jpg

 

At Castle Dour, the Imperator Magus was on an important business in Skyrim, noticed the growing problems of the province, but he got an unpexpected visitor...

 

enb_2019_11_23_09_12_17_04.jpg

 

He was interrupted by his old Ally... Trinn, who brought bad news to him..

 

enb_2019_11_23_09_11_46_31.jpg

 

She merely waited til he finished his talk and waited to be noticed.... Until Imperator Magus finally acknowledged her pressence and dismissed the local legatus..

 

enb_2019_11_23_09_13_48_45.jpg

 

Gauis: An unexpected Visit.. Greetings Trinn, is there something to discuss? Im rather occupied with Imperial business, unless its urgent we can discuss it later

 

enb_2019_11_23_09_13_37_15.jpg

 

Trinn: And here I thought you'd be glad to see an old friend. The Empire takes all of your time, eh? But I'm afraid this isn't a simple social call. I have news that may be of importance to you and I also require your assistance.

 

enb_2019_11_23_09_16_59_11.jpg

 

Gauis: You choose pretty bad time.. You could ask an meeting and things would be more polite... Now then whats the news?

 

Trinn: I have met an old...acquaintance...of mine. Her behavior has always been erratic even by necromancer's standards. She's unpredictable and bloodthirsty. Previously she kept herself occupied with smaller "projects", but this time I feel she poses a threat not just to a random village, but to the whole Empire. And more specifically - to you.

 

enb_2019_11_23_09_17_23_76.jpg

 

Gauis: Who is this person and what exactly she plans?

 

Trinn: I know her as the Defiler of Death, though she may go by other names as well.

 

enb_2019_11_19_23_02_20_65.jpg


Trinn: We've crossed paths on occasion some decades ago. She is powerful, crafty and completely insane.

 

enb_2019_11_20_21_46_54_32.jpg

 

Trinn: She wants to topple the Empire and picked you as an interesting toy to play with. And there's nothing she loves more than to break her toys. Completely.

 

enb_2019_11_20_21_50_44_29.jpg

 

Few hour ago...

 

Trinn was called to an meeting from a fellow necromancer, who she barely knew....

 

Trinn was called to the hall of dead in solitude...

 

enb_2019_11_20_21_51_03_04.jpg

 

Outside of a few encounter she not really know a lot of this person, outside of her used name "Defiler of Death"..

 

enb_2019_11_20_21_51_33_52.jpg

 

She scouted any undead pressence and living with her magic to see, is this a legitime meeting or just a trap by some foolish persons who think they can challenge her....

 

enb_2019_11_20_21_51_56_55.jpg

 

Place was empty, nothing here outside of the dead...

 

She noticed something very strange...

 

Arkay was missing here, no signs or aura of the Divine...

 

enb_2019_11_20_21_52_38_27.jpg

 

She knew already something was off with the crpyt.. the signs of very advanced, yet uknown type of necromancy is everywhere...

 

enb_2019_11_20_21_53_06_36.jpg

 

The entire place was full of it... from bone to bone...

 

enb_2019_11_20_21_53_28_54.jpg

 

In the end the meeting was real thing, there was indeed an powerful necromancer around..

 

enb_2019_11_20_21_54_51_09.jpg

 

She merely walked to the meeting location in the crypt.. to meet the her...

 

She reached the place, and just waited a bit, examining the magic around the place...

 

enb_2019_11_20_22_01_34_19.jpg

 

Her: Its always pleasant meeting an old friend, been a while Lady Trinn.

 

enb_2019_11_20_22_02_45_25.jpg

 

Trinn: We are hardly friends... Just two people sharing an interest in the Dark Arts. What do you want?

 

enb_2019_11_20_22_02_56_30.jpg

 

Her: How mean !.. I thought asking you to join a little fun, maybe I could lend help to you in your goals for joining me..(chuckles)

 

enb_2019_11_20_22_06_19_62.jpg

 

Trinn: Your knowledge of necromancy is indeed extensive, but I doubt there's anything you could possibly help me with. What 'fun' are you planning this time anyway?

 

enb_2019_11_20_22_06_37_46.jpg


Her: Just a little chaotic fun

 

enb_2019_11_20_22_07_36_57.jpg


Her: I want kill the Imperator Magus to tremble the entire Empire... But thats not everything, I want raise an entire city as undead to start a bit of apocalypse for Skyrim...

 

enb_2019_11_20_22_07_49_40.jpg

 

Her: Its been while since the dear Wolf Queen brought fun here..

 

enb_2019_11_20_22_10_37_10.jpg

 

Her: Sounds exiciting rights? How little magic and killing one person can cause events what makes the Daedric Princes pale.

 

Trinn: But this...this is madness. If Imperator Magus dies, do you realize the utter mess that will follow? Every gang, every crazed cult, every upstart noble with a modicum of self-interest will fight for power, territory, resources. Not to mention if you raise a whole city of the undead it will turn everyone's attention at anyone who practices our Art.

 

enb_2019_11_20_22_13_54_65.jpg

 

Trinn: I cannot let you do this!

 

enb_2019_11_21_01_29_16_64.jpg

 

Trinn : I will not have everything I worked for be jeopardized by some maniacal Lich without any self-restraint.

 

enb_2019_11_21_01_30_41_64.jpg

 

Trinn destroyed her pretty easily, merely used the spell she mastered in the centuries..

 

An magic what disables and destroys the lich's connection, making them vunerable to death and easy to absorb their power..

 

She created it a reason, cause she knew not all liches like her.. Some of them need to be stopped before they cause chaos..

 

enb_2019_11_21_01_31_00_03.jpg

 

However, her magic was strong and still lingered, like if nothing happened...

 

enb_2019_11_21_01_03_41_57.jpg

 

While Trinn got close to the exit..  she noticed something was definetly not right...

 

enb_2019_11_21_01_08_02_84.jpg

 

Her: Disappointing choice Trinn...

 

enb_2019_11_21_01_08_25_91.jpg

 

Her: From a hundred years old Lich such reaction, You still clinging onyour humanity..

 

enb_2019_11_21_01_08_45_86.jpg

 

Trinn: Through all the centuries of my unlife I have learned that senseless destruction does not benefit anyone in the long run. It seems it is a concept you still struggle to grasp.

 

enb_2019_11_21_01_11_40_10.jpg

 

Her: I do not care for concepts what I simply don't not understand anymore due my nature... Who cares of that Mess? Gangs, cults of weak entities and civil war? You concern yourself with trivial matters.. Isn't obvious what is follow it? Chaos and death, everything may differ, but in the end the results are the same.. Death is just another of the trivial concept, you can see I am here again..

 

 

enb_2019_11_21_01_15_22_95.jpg

 

Trinn: So you have a few tricks up your sleeve. Impressive. But you are not the only one.

 

Her: Your body is strange, I couldn't take over like any other undead... You like the living..

 

enb_2019_11_21_01_15_32_24.jpg


Trinn: You think you know everything there is to know about life and death... 

 

enb_2019_11_21_01_16_18_03.jpg


Trinn: Your arrogance and desire for chaos blind you. The only reason for your actions is boredom... 

 

enb_2019_11_21_01_16_26_96.jpg

 

Trinn: You're nothing more than a rabid dog with an arsenal of magic stunts.

 

enb_2019_11_21_01_16_41_46.jpg

 

Her: Are you done yet?

 

enb_2019_11_21_01_23_22_28.jpg


Her: Boredom yes, what else could I do with this much power outside of being bored? Everything is just meaningless...

 

enb_2019_11_21_01_23_59_55.jpg

 

Her: I don't have anymore those concepts to care, even chaos just nothing more then a mere distraction to entertain myself.. And in the end no one can stop me.. Not you, not the Divines, Not the Daedras, and not Him.. Please Spare me of your ramblings..

 

enb_2019_11_21_01_24_32_43.jpg

 

Trinn: I must warn Gauis. She may be mad, but she is not a fool. A necromancer of her caliber is extremely dangerous. If she is not stopped then the Empire really might fall. Ugh, I hate such complications.

 

enb_2019_11_23_09_17_09_63.jpg

 

Gauis: One mere necromancer and some undeads are not necessary the worst thing I ever faced...

 

Trinn: If she was a regular practitioner of the Dark Arts I wouldn't have bothered to warn you. She plans to destroy cities and raise them as her own personal army. And unlike me, she doesn't care who her undead soldiers are. Women, children, elderly - everyone you have been trying to protect all these years.

 

enb_2019_11_23_09_17_36_08.jpg

 

Gauis: Interesting after the dealing with Skyrim's current problems, I will focus on her. If her plans are true she need to be taken care..

 

Trinn: Don't underestimate her, Gauis. She's a match even to your skills, and I'd hate to have to resurrect you as a shade. It just wouldn't be as fun. Anyway, back to the other reason I'm here. I have found something that might be of use to me, but I need it decoded.

 

enb_2019_11_23_09_17_57_95.jpg

 

Gauis: Don't worry I can handle her.. So what exactly you found?

 

Trinn: Remember the reason why I originally came to you? I've found the instructions for that trap, but they are written in secret cipher. Have you ever seen anything like this?

 

Gauis: Yes.. we can decypher it when Im done with everything... alright?

 

Few months Later

 

enb_2019_11_22_19_21_40_37.jpg

 

Trinn decided to settle in Riften hold, due the big oppurnities of business and crime around the city.. More benefitial alliances and of course coprses and souls for the army she promised..

 

Trinn: Ugh, Riften. Corrupted city filled with thugs, thieves and disgusting smells.

 

enb_2019_11_22_19_20_46_13.jpg


Trinn: Not my favorite choice but I can get anything I need here through the underground markets.

 

enb_2019_11_22_19_20_22_31.jpg

 

Trinn: Time to look for a suitable house.

Wow, this is a damn atmospheric and interesting chapter, with exciting dialogs and amazing screenshots! Amazing job! 
Although it seems to me that Trinn looks a bit different. 
Did you use the same .nif as Devianna? Or created her from scratch?

Thank you 😊

 

Originally it was supposed to just Trinn warns Gauis about her and thats it, but lets say I expanded it a lot, thus we spent a lot of time on the dialogue and interactions.

 

Trinn indeed looks different, cause while her preset loaded in my game, it was for the special edition, so under Devianna's guidance we made her look as she wanted 🙂, her face is the exact same, she just have my mods on her and visuals, and her hair is not the same, but hey she is a big lady, she changes her hair a lot, she did in her story too.

 

Also same way how Gauis look not like in her game haha, he look like a friendly person in that armour, opposed here where look menacing and badass 😁

Hahaha, you really made me laugh out loud now, Malicia 🤣

 

She is not Malicia, just another evil redhead of Skyrim, see they always want destruction and chaos 👼

 

We are lucky we have her, Malicia would be more dangerous with her horse invasion, undeads are easier to handle 😂

.... I sense a continuation of this dark tale coming .. :classic_ph34r:

It called the Purge of Riften, this is pretty much a prequel for it. 😁

Oh wow, even though I've seen parts of it, the way you create those screenshots still amazes me. 😍 So beautiful, atmospheric and in the case with Halls of the Dead - eerie. 😱 And I still love how you managed to show the contrast between two necromancers simply with the pictures themselves. The text just enhances it. 🤩

It was a real pleasure working with you on this project, Resdayn 🤗 and yeah, our little crossover kind of spun into a pretty big story. 😅

Glad you enjoyed this part, Crw! 😊 Yes, Lady Trinn is slightly modified due to mod (and game) differences, but her look is 100% approved by me. Plus she does like to change her hairstyle from time to time, so it fits nicely. And thanks to Resdayn's setup we even got to see her being a bit menacing. 😲

HAHAHAHA...I love that comment. But Malicia is generally much more pleasant than the Defiler of Death and she probably wouldn't hang out in old crypts. 😅

I guessed so from the newest chapter (read it 15 minutes ago)

Though another (even darker and more threatening) chapter 3 of the 2 existing ones could be imaginable :classic_happy:

Thank you, it was pleasure to work with you, truly felt like a crossover and both of us took part of it. ❤️

 

You were the most hyped person of this chapter haha, and most excited, despite the fact we both made this hehe 🤗

 

I agree the screenshoots are pretty damn good for the chapter, and I went with all out with this crossover 😅

There will be some references of this alliance later in the stories.

 

But the necromancer lady and Gauis has business in Riften already haha.

Quite an interesting episode. You kinda dodged the fight between the two necromancers though, but the threatening, eerie yet silky atmosphere of their encounter made up for it. And indeed ; the contrast between your setup (darker, and more subtle colorwise) compared to Devianna's (brighter, with more vibrant contrasts) changes the way one could perceive the characters. For example, Gauis closed-eye is subtly hinted by the absence of his piercing golden stare into his right orbit ; while much more obvious in the first chapter. Screenshot-wise, you focus more on the aesthetics and atmosphere, while Devianna concentrates more on highlighting the characters actions and attitudes. Scenario-wise there were some stunning revelations about Trinn though, which in fact would be a several centuries old lich as well ? That's surprising. And same for the antagonist of Riften's Purge, which is revealed in the cross-over (special mention to her hair close to Malicia's one, and  the "How mean !"? I know you barely resisted writing "meany" :lol:). Liked how you played about her getting physically close to Trinn, yet at the same time so very threatening, that's excellent for an evil contender. ^^ Anyway, a lot of revelations and interconnections in this episode, increasing the stakes for the future ones. Great read ! :D

Well I don't know if it's a matter of resolution ratio, of nif conversion or hair change, but her face looks more oval and slimmer in Devianna's setup, so her facepaint seems positioned a bit higher in yours. Also, the way Devianna makes her talk and act doesn't looks like being as easily reproducible as that. Maybe it's just the hair and ENB, but while her haircut would certainly be Tabrielle approved, I personally think when porting a character into another universe her or his first appearance should be as close as possible to the original one.

enb_2019_11_20_22_13_54_65.jpg

Yet, I like the darker vibe of your version, which looks more threatening, and more mature somehow ; while Kiki's author always end-up with something of a fairy tale.

Spoiler

I'll also mention a possible reference to Variah in the very last screen, but that could be me. ^^

Nicely done! You and Dev are very good team. You have much in common and you should do more of this stuff. Before my Ivy went in short walk with my Prince and Mikey she draw this and begged me to post it. So I'm just doing a favor to her since she is not posting comments on anybody's blog but hers. She said: " Notify Trilog @Tirloque too. "

Thank you ❤️

 

Well actually there was a fight, and Trinn indeed "killed" her, it just she seems have her own ways, hence why Trinn remarks of the tricks 🤗.

 

Also "She" not really was interested fight Trinn, just expressed her own disappointment in her, after all her target is Gauis and we see the results of it in the future..

 

 

Generally revelations of Trinn and showcasing more of her personality was the main idea, she kinda mysterious in her own story, so we had a chance to saw her more and her personality.

 

Same for Gauis, we saw the plot and shemes against him and in the previous story, we get a glimpse of his goals and pragmatism toward the Empire..

 

Yeah, the returning from the death and the physical contant meant to be threatful and creepy, we generally see Trinn actually got suprised and caught off guard, while sensed something not right..

 

Meant showcase our Redhead necromancer is indeed confident and a big threat, after all she kinda showcased her skills in the purge and want to take down Gauis.. 

 

Revealing her and making her interacting Trinn was generally good way to showcase both character, since they pretty strongly contrast each other, I think it was excelent way to introduce our mysterius person behind Riften, truth be told her face was already supposed to shown in the latest chapter..

 

Her being Redhad already doomed to get Malicia jokes and comparisons haha, perfectly unintentional, I made her hair actually redhead and reworked her face a bit.. And that few edit made her look massively different, I thought someone might recognise her. 😊

 

Urunach might get an rival for the evil character list hehe, She is indeed my most evil character, despite being Eliza big contender.

Probably face map, texture and enb differences and the fact her preset was from a different skyrim, it was from the special edition and was miracle even loaded it, so we made her a proper Devianna approved look for her.

 

Hard to reproduce Devi's style for the character, I tried my best, but again Lady Trinn isn't my character 😁

 

Her aura and vibe just lack the of cuteness from my works 😊, Trinn in general supposed to be a powerful lich, of course she is darker and threating.

 

Actually I did not really intendted make reference for Variah, I picked the dress what felt suitable, I guess it ended up unintentionally one.

Gauis is not sad, his mask just hides his emotions, he mostly annoyed how much work he has and he can't go to the beach to sunbath.

 

Its true Malicia you are agent of chaos and destruction.

After you said this, I'm really eager to create a print or something like that, with the words "100% approved by Devianna" :D

Thank you 😁

 

Indeed, it was so much fun to work with her, and who knows, we might make more haha, 

 

Ohhh dear, The Walking Malicia or Malicia the Walking dead XD.

 

While she is indeed walking and actually dead, she is not Malicia 🤗

Ah, okay, now I get it ^^ 

Should know myself,  that's pretty logical... :D

 

We use two different skyrim, so even suprising, I could make this one with Trinn 😁

Scenario-wise there were some stunning revelations about Trinn though, which in fact would be a several centuries old lich as well ? That's surprising. And same for the antagonist of Riften's Purge, which is revealed in the cross-over (special mention to her hair close to Malicia's one, and  the "How mean !"? I know you barely resisted writing "meany" :lol:). Liked how you played about her getting physically close to Trinn, yet at the same time so very threatening, that's excellent for an evil contender. ^^ Anyway, a lot of revelations and interconnections in this episode, increasing the stakes for the future ones. Great read ! :D

 

Malicia : « Mrs Trinn, Mr Gauis, and that necromancer gal all look very sad and gloomy, uh. They should really go to the theater and watch a good movie. :classic_lightbulb: »

Well I don't know if it's a matter of resolution ratio, of nif conversion or hair change, but her face looks more oval and slimmer in Devianna's setup, so her facepaint seems positioned a bit higher in yours. Also, the way Devianna makes her talk and act doesn't looks like being as easily reproducible as that. Maybe it's just the hair and ENB, but while her haircut would certainly be Tabrielle approved, I personally think when porting a character into another universe her or his first appearance should be as close as possible to the original one.

Yet, I like the darker vibe of your version, which looks more threatening, and more mature somehow ; while Kiki's author always end-up with something of a fairy tale.

  Reveal hidden contents

I'll also mention a possible reference to Variah in the very last screen, but that could be me. ^^

Malicia : « Ha ha ha, very funny. I gonna ask professor Neloren a spell so you stop dreaming about horses, uh. :classic_dodgy: »

Malicia : « You're very right, Mrs Devianna. Plus I've not defiled anyone except my plush doll, but she was disjointed and the cotton was leaking, so she was very needing it, you see ? :classic_angel: »

 

 

Thank you for the kind comment, Tirloque. 😊 Yes, Lady Trinn really is very old and though technically she is a Lich of sorts, she is not of the usual kind. As The Defiler points out, she isn't able to take over Trinn's body which is something she would be able to do easily with any other undead.  We avoided a more prolonged fight scene because it wasn't the main point of the story. Both the Defiler and Lady Trinn are extremely powerful and capable practitioners but their goals are very different. My necromancer prefers to avoid drawing unnecessary attention to herself while Resdayn's "Evil Redhead" revels in the idea of chaos and destruction. If those two decided to openly 'duke it out' there wouldn't be anything left of Solitude or neighboring villages.

 

The dialogues for Lady Trinn were all written by me, so her speech is 100% authentic. As for her appearance, Resdayn discussed it with me at length and we agreed that it fit nicely with her overall style and atmosphere.  @Crw I think we really do need that "100% approved by Devianna" stamp for such occasions. 😅 The Variah reference is probably just the dress. 🤔 Lady Trinn does have an extensive wardrobe, fitting for every occasion. 😉

 

Lady Trinn: Dear Malicia, I wouldn't mind visiting the theater with Imperator Magus, but he is always too preoccupied with his work for the Empire. As for my colleague - it's better to keep her away from any crowded place. That foolish woman has no manners!

Nicely done! You and Dev are very good team. You have much in common and you should do more of this stuff. Before my Ivy went in short walk with my Prince and Mikey she draw this and begged me to post it. So I'm just doing a favor to her since she is not posting comments on anybody's blog but hers. She said: " Notify Trilog @Tirloque too. "

Thank you, Eva! That Malicia Walking Dead poster looks great. 🤣

As for more crossovers - who knows. We might see some of these characters together again at some point. 😉

Thank you ❤️

 

Well actually there was a fight, and Trinn indeed "killed" her, it just she seems have her own ways, hence why Trinn remarks of the tricks 🤗.

Also "She" not really was interested fight Trinn, just expressed her own disappointment in her, after her target is Gauis and we see the results of it in the future..

Generally revelations of Trinn and showcasing more of her personality was the main idea, she kinda mysterious in her own story, so we had a chance to saw her more and her personality.

Same for Gauis, we saw the plot and shemes against him and in the previous story, we get a glimpse of his goals and pragmatism toward the Empire..

Yeah, the returning from the death and the physical contant meant to be threatful and creepy, we generally see Trinn actually got suprised and caught off guard, while sensed something not right..

 

Meant showcase our Redhead necromancer is indeed confident and a big threat, after all she kinda showcased her skills in the purge and want to take down Gauis..

Well she was showcased alright, while bringing interesting character development for both protagonists.

Her being Redhad already doomed to get Malicia jokes and comparisons haha, perfectly unintentional, I made her hair actually redhead and reworked her face a bit.. And that few edit made her look massively different, I thought someone might recognise her. 😊

 

Urunach might get an rival for the evil character list hehe, She is indeed my most evil character, despite being Eliza big contender.

Well she looks like an evil hybrid between Julia Roberts and Aria. XD Jokes aside she does indeed remind of one of your characters, but I can't put who.

 

Anyway she certainly looks twisted. Urunach is an extreme example though, but you'll have the occasion to show us more about her in the next Riften Purge I guess. :D

Probably face map, texture and enb differences and the fact her preset was from a different skyrim, it was from the special edition and was miracle even loaded it, so we made her a proper Devianna approved look for her.

 

Hard to reproduce Devi's style for the character, I tried my best, but again Lady Trinn isn't my character 😁

Probably a bit of all that indeed.

It's interesting to use crossovers for lore revelations though, as we didn't know she was a Lich beforehand. That explains how she disposed of the tomb one in your chronicles though.

She not really got that major changes on the face, and her outfit is the same 🤗, all I did her to make her more closer to her supposed actual look., her background and personality got more expanded and reworked a lot.

 

 I guess depend perspective, we already heard her plans here and in the purge via Gwynola.

 

And we saw her actions and consequence of it and we not saw everything yet from Riften.

You can make any excuses as you like, but there is a lot of face lines similarities between Residan's redhead and Malicija. Just compare them and you will see. :)

Everyone who rise up from dead in natural way is zombie. It doesn't have to eat guts and brain, but is a living (walking) dead.
