Nightmares of The Dawn

 

enb_2020_03_01_02_03_17_24.jpg

 

Pile of Alyssa's garbage...

 

I do not tolerate the undead in my realm...

 

enb_2020_03_01_02_03_58_82.jpg

 

Those who don't sleep or dream, dies instantly...

 

If I had the blackguards, I would sent them to deal with such problems...

 

Instead I deal with myself... I hate such distraction..

 

enb_2020_03_01_02_04_53_97.jpg

 

Lets with deal with the next one...

 

enb_2020_03_01_02_06_57_06.jpg

 

Gauis and his little tracker think, they can distrupt my intentions with Dibella's girl...

 

enb_2020_03_01_02_10_48_51.jpg

 

My powers are way more then some nightmares, but unlike the heathens of Dawnstars, you are not necessary for My Lady..

 

Sleep well and...

 

enb_2020_03_01_02_14_20_32.jpg

 

Never wake up...

 

enb_2020_03_01_02_18_48_16.jpg

 

Ohh look the Imperial Tracker of Gauis..

 

Finest dog of the Empire...

 

Tell me what do you think? Can you solve the mystery?

 

enb_2020_03_01_02_19_18_97.jpg

 

Everyone is dead?!!

 

What happened? And most importantly who or what did kill an entire group of soldiers...

 

enb_2020_03_01_02_20_53_09.jpg

 

No signs of physical wounds...

 

enb_2020_03_01_02_21_25_51.jpg

 

Most likely a magical attack..

 

enb_2020_03_01_02_21_31_56.jpg

 

They died from a shock? Illusion Magic?

 

There is a former temple of Vaermina near, daedric cultists?..

 

enb_2020_03_01_02_30_14_34.jpg

 

Aren't you a smart one? Almost got it..

 

Not an "cultist", rather the high priest and the champion...

 

But time for investigation is over.... time to sleep... and never wake up..

 

enb_2020_03_02_17_39_54_53.jpg

 

Finally at home...

 

Smells of miasma and  the suffering...

 

enb_2020_03_02_17_41_02_10.jpg

 

Vigilants, Empire, And that wretched spawn Alyssa... are unwelcomed..

 

Try as much they like, as long as I am here, all their attempts fail..

 

enb_2020_03_02_17_40_47_41.jpg

 

Now then time to take care the guest of my...

 

enb_2020_03_02_16_59_48_89.jpg

 

Ahhhh you already Reached Dawnstar, took some days...

 

I made sure all things in your way there, died...

 

You are my precious guest, you need sleep in safety...

 

enb_2020_03_02_17_01_01_74.jpg

 

City of Dawnstar, I hope you enjoy your stay here...

 

The inn is quite comfortable place..

 

hehe

 

enb_2020_03_02_17_03_41_96.jpg

 

Ohhhh don't be suspicious...

 

I tailored his dreams to let you sleep freely there, cause if he don't do terrible things happen...

 

Few nightmare and he done my request..

 

enb_2020_03_02_17_03_54_84.jpg

 

Come, the room waits..

 

enb_2020_03_02_17_05_31_70.jpg

 

Sleeping Naked? Taking off all armour and protection?

 

How faithful from you..

 

enb_2020_03_02_17_06_28_39.jpg

 

Look at you...

 

Aren't you beautiful?

 

Just like your disguisting Goddess Dibella....

 

enb_2020_03_02_17_06_35_73.jpg

 

Don't be sad now, traumas, bad memories and experiences are part of the life.

 

Close your eye and sleep...

 

I can't get you know more if you wake..

 

enb_2020_03_02_17_10_16_82.jpg

 

Finally....

 

Lets see greatest desires in your dreams...

 

enb_2020_02_29_17_40_01_37.jpg

 

I never thought, I will end up this haha from that little sister of Dibella...

 

I used to be...

 

enb_2020_02_29_17_42_05_43.jpg

 

but I finally reached my dream..

 

Im a happy wife...

 

enb_2020_02_29_17_48_59_70.jpg

 

And not just anyone's wife...

 

Im the Consort of Queen Evelynn..

 

The Mighty and beautiful ruler of the Reach..

 

enb_2020_02_29_17_43_13_03.jpg

 

She is a busy a lot as a ruler, but she always mine in the bedroom..

 

I can't wait to give my Queen the deserved rewards hehe..

 

enb_2020_03_02_17_19_37_60.jpg

 

Thats your biggest dream? That can't be...

 

Lers switch to an different dream..

 

enb_2020_02_28_00_52_51_86.jpg

 

My biography is done, all my past and history.. as it should be...

 

enb_2020_02_28_00_54_52_55.jpg

 

As Dibella's greatest champion, I achieved my victory...

 

enb_2020_02_28_00_56_02_70.jpg

 

My Vampiric mother is in her grave, sent back to the darkest depths of oblivion she belong...

 

enb_2020_02_28_00_57_17_67.jpg

 

The journey was long, and had many bloody battles....

 

I closed this part of my life now...

 

enb_2020_02_28_00_58_09_47.jpg

 

Now I can think of marriage and finding true love, Skyrim has so many cute girls to pick, i wonder if they like the loving paladin type-s or knight ladies

 

(chuckles)

 

Thats a big issue... your ambition is just pathetic...

 

enb_2020_03_02_17_44_00_22.jpg

 

I think I got the perfect solution of this issue...

 

enb_2020_03_02_17_26_24_92.jpg

 

You need some nice dreams to get a bit more lively...

 

enb_2020_03_02_17_26_41_81.jpg

 

But first....

 

enb_2020_03_02_17_22_40_99.jpg

 

I want discover your biggest fears....

 

enb_2020_03_02_17_24_14_12.jpg

It's interesting so far. You used an internal point of view which avoids a lot of dialogues, but allows you to skip faster to the entertaining parts. Technically, minor clipping put aside, the screens are more than just good, with immersive poses and expressions almost telling a story by themselves, while the colors and ambiance are convincing as much indoors than outdoors. Your Dawnstar city has been quite upgraded btw.

enb_2020_03_01_02_10_48_51.jpgenb_2020_03_02_17_03_41_96.jpg

Scenario-wise, a lot of potential for our dreams manipulator, so far we get only the nice part, awaiting for the nightmarish ones... The concept of illusion having killing spells still seems OP to me (why then would destructo-mage even bother with destruction ? plus it's a direct approach which isn't faithful to the spirit of that magic discipline in my eyes), but that's only my opinion, and could be balanced by making it the result of failed "dream-trials", so to speak, which would consume time and attention from the caster. And Gwynolda is gorgeous as always. Awaiting for the next chapter ! :smiley:

 

Malicia : « The horny guy was hiding under her bed !! That's very creepy ! Smiley-ryoandr-HFR.gif

 

                That'll learn to her to put panties at least. Now he can see everything, so he gonna get even hornier. :classic_sleep:

 

               Anyway, aside that she looks like Cleopatra, her dreams aren't funny at all, no. :classic_angel: »

Well illusion school is usually based crowd-controll in rpg games and settings, I generally consider it a school what directly attacks the mind and mental health, and as we see in irl mental state can affect a lot the physical body, of course that need the stronger ones, which requiried amount of knowledge for it and ability to cast thoseand of course magicka.

 

But the ability to kill is not suprising if you controll the mind of your enemy. 😉

 

The Tormentor in this case goes fromt he death from fear and terror. He also don't really look like a normal mortal or person, so you can guess his powers are more powerful in the Vaermina dominated Pale hold. We can guess he don't use powers and spells what someone can learn from normal ways, I mean he is the champion and the high priest of Vaermina, in vanilla the priesthood had the ability to make a miasma which keeps people in statis. 🙂

 

I use crowd controll based mages in dnd games and tabletop, not even use anything on the destructive spells, cause other more martial classes can finish them off while the character leave all enemies vunerable. 😇

 

This School always op 👼

 

But again like everything, it has weaknesses and flaw, as you saw he worked very well against weak-minded people or I can say ones with low will save 😇, but against undeads, he probably used classic cleric spells. 😉 After all these spells don't work on the dead. You can make conclusions from that fact.

 

Also Gauis favors using destruction magic, as you noticed, so he still bothers it.

 

Yes, Im happy with the screenshots, outside of a few minor things, they delivered the intentions and yeah I decided to make the pace faster, some filler scenes are out. 🥰

 

He definetly has massive potential and so many options, he is suprisingly working greatly so far as antagonist. 😁

 

I decided to cover the nightmares of the coming chapters and get back to Gwynolda's perspective from his, those are just too big for one chapter 👼

 

Gwynolda would love to marry girls Malicia, you should marry her one day 😇

Im glad you liked the entry hehe.

 

Yes, I intentionally tried make Gwynolda's desires and dreams more sweet and cuter, it will make a good contrast for the nightmares.

 

Im so happy with him, he works wonderfully and writing wise super fun.

😮Monster Under My Bed!

enb_2020_03_02_17_26_24_92.jpg

 

Ahh sorry, I made an epic fail. XD

 

Yes, it is very much inspired of the concept 😇

Link to comment

Thanks a lot, Res! Now I'll have to keep checking under my bed before going to sleep just to make sure there's nothing creepy there! 😱 🤣

 

Joking aside, you've really become quite the expert at creating these horror scenarios. The Tormentor gives off a very unsettling vibe and at the same time he is extremely entertaining to watch. And I love how all of the screenshots have a dream-like feeling to them. At some points it even seems that these events are just an illusion.

 

The Blackguard is indeed on another assignment but it looks like Vaermina's high priest is more than capable to handle things on his own. 😇

 

Gwynolda's dreams are so sad. All she ever wanted was a normal, happy life and a family.  Instead she received only pain, suffering, heartbreak and unending trials. 😥

 

Is the hot tracker guy completely dead or is there some hope for him yet? He looked so interesting but we got so little information on him.🤔

 

By the way, how do you keep the miasma on in the temple? Whenever I shoot scenes there it starts automatically disappearing (I'm guessing the quest triggers even though I do not activate it)

 

Loved this entry and though I feel really bad for Gwynolda I still cannot wait to see what her nightmares will look like. :classic_ph34r:

Thank you for sharing your wonderful work with us! 🤗

It is a crowd control discipline, and every damaged dealt is indirect. So using it paired to others is its essence, contrary to direct kills (which would make illusion auto-sufficient and the other offensive discipline obsolete). Also, I guess giving intense emotions could kill someone of 55 years old smoking since 15, drinking and so on, but not the average healthy guy. Think of it just like Naruto's mangekyo sharingan hypnosis, while extremely powerful it's supposed at best to break the mind of the victim, and drain the user. The miasma puts in stasis, it doesn't kill either. Anyway, it relates to interpretation, and that is subjective. So it's a matter of preference here. Smiley_jap_HFR.gif

They can work on the dead in vanilla in fact, though only master illusionists can pull this out.

Awwww, thats actually cute, checking the bed just incase, would be bad if he just outright appear from below 🤣

 

Im glad you think that way 🥰, Im having a lot of fun with the horror scenarios and villains and happy to hear he gave unsettling vibes 👼

 

I designed him as a horror villain/monster, he pretty much fit wonderfully in these scenarios and works really well 😊, super fun to write.

 

Ohhh you noticed the dream/ghost like vibes as well? Its very much intentional.. 🤗

 

Indeed, he seems lack any enforces of Vaermina or muscles to deal with the minor annoyances, but he is more than capable to deal with those things.

 

Yeah, Gwynolda's desires and goals outside of the vengenace is the same, during her memory blocked parts, she wanted find love, even now thats the same despite focused to kill Eliza. They also intentionally cute and sweet in a way to make contrast of the coming nightmares.

 

We know Gwynolda quite well, her fears and bad memories will be the core of the nightmares, you may able to make guesses. 😁

 

Well thing is he actually almost pictured whats going on, there might be a chance he is actually alive, and we might meet him in the dream worlds or not hehe 😊

The Tormenter's magic and abilities are working differently then the arcane illusion considering its very much daedric power, he always put people in dreams and alter those as you probably noticed, til the next chapter with Gwynolda, we don't really see a lot from its working rules, but I don't think Vaermina's powers and normal arcane illusion has the same category😉

His abilities don't, dead don't sleep or dream.

 

Hence he probably used turn undead 😇

Some undead do sleep, the vampires. And in a lot of zombies stories they go asleep when the sun rises. I give you it's not sure zombies do dream however, or maybe just Forshare's. :classic_biggrin:

I don't really put vampires one league with the other undeads, they are far more closer to a mortal body while having undead weaknesses, then a skeleton or a puppeted coprse, gohst or liches.

 

Vampires are while resistant vunerable to his powers.

 

Caramel already married to you Malicia 👼

              Anyway,  I also know what Gwynolda is gonna dream about :

                 -> She's gonna dream she's in a carriage, and that's it's very shaky, you see ?

 

                And when she'll wake-up, she'll be pregnant. That'll teach her to sleep naked in an inn without doors, uh. :classic_sleep: »

But the real question is do Cyber-Vampires™️ dream of electric sheep? 

Depends 🤔

 

Brain is generally electric, so we need robotic improvement to dream about energised sheeps or we already do?
