"What are you reading this morning love?"

"It's a book of spells and potions.  Mr Medici gave it to me before I left Riften."

"So what you're a wizard now?"

20200425072614_1.jpg.e152f92e98c7c02f04ac6389c43bf307.jpg

 

"No not quite... The books in Aldmeris, I need to find someone who can translate it for me."

"I do believe there's probably a couple someones like that in Riften."

"What about another hold where's the closest one?"

"Windhelm I believe, I went there once when I was a boy."

"Then it looks like we're off to Windhelm."

"Well here's a town you think they have someone who can read Aldmeris?"

"Don't get your hopes up, it doesn't look like much of a town."

20200425073120_1.jpg.4d1cef78ed66cc0a38b408d10e26deb8.jpg

 

"We'll never find a translator with that attitude Micah!"

"Sir!"

20200425073333_1.jpg.fb63eef06b3f589d43ff8f50a3befa28.jpg

 

"Yes miss?  What brings you out here to our town?"

20200425073350_1.jpg.8a87d89b8a253384253aa91be360cb60.jpg

 

"I'm on my way to Windhelm, I thought I might ask if you have someone who can read Aldmeris."

20200425073303_1.jpg.530f45d4df81afa392d3c3f7c2d5b0ba.jpg

 

"That elf speak?  I don't want anything to do with those damn elves."

20200425073412_1.jpg.4cd936ec6b329c80dc9c4931c3e61381.jpg

 

"Why might that be?"

20200425073315_1.jpg.1c564ecf5d7f00bff77c9cb0a04f6520.jpg

 

"Those damn elves are trying to get the Empire to restrict our worship of Talos!  My nephews in the Legion, he told me the elves might go to war with us over it, I won't have anything to do with em!"

20200425073410_1.jpg.11cccc19e1f09343776bb53ff9437e53.jpg

 

"I hadn't heard about that, do you think there might really be war?"

20200425073625_1.jpg.c3570cfe5f7b7076efb9c55cb3cecf42.jpg

 

"I don't know, there hasn't been war in Skyrim for a hundred years, we need to find someone who can read Aldmeris for your book."

20200425073737_1.jpg.52022473e75d98f2a310297694968808.jpg

 

"For all the good our searching is doing we might as well ask him."

Kind of a short one, I've run out of time to finish the chapter this morning and couldn't figure a way to save it so I could come back to it later.  So I went ahead and split chapter three into two parts, I should have the rest of it posted tomorrow morning, thank you for reading as always :)

I am really digging these characters and this story. ? In addition to the writing you have a really nice pace going here and it feels like the story is really moving!

 

I noticed you had Micah's lips open in the first shot you took of him (and I loved the happy "morning after" look on his face btw ?) but after that it seemed like everybody's mouth was pretty static and closed after that.

I know after... I think the first chapter, Alter Native suggested getting an ENB. I don't know what kind of rig you have, or what it's limitations are, but if it can handle it, I'd recommend giving it a look! 

 

Looking forward to the second part of chapter 3!

Pretty good immersion, made believable by having the inhabitants talk about geopolitics. As for the rest, the remarks which have been done for the previous chapter mostly apply, so I won't repeat them. Pleasant read overall. ?

Thanks, I'd love to use an enb for it but my computers just not the best.

And that's understandable. There are some pretty light enbs and reshades out there, but if that's not an option just continue improving and working on the things you can affect, lip movement, posing, ect.

 

Regardless, I shall continue reading. ?

I'll look around some more and see if I can find something my computer can run well, I'd love to have one that works well for me and the story :)
