Author's note:

 

 

 

Spoiler

 

Hello again, everyone. 😊

 

As you have probably guessed from Kiki’s explanation, my Skyrim was acting up more and more and I finally had to do a complete, clean reinstall. I am generally happy with how things turned out and with all the improvements. However, some of the mods that I used for my previous stories are no longer available and some of the others do not play nicely with my current game setup. And of course all of the previously customized and jaxxoned locations have reverted to their original state (Uncle Harkon’s castle will need a lot of renovations 😰). All of this means that some of my tales will have to be put on hold until I find suitable substitutes. If you haven’t seen some of my characters during this episode - do not worry. I still have their presets and I can pick up where I left off once I have the time/inspiration. 😇

 

So, where does this lead? The next season of Adventures in Deviannaverse will continue some of my larger tales as well as feature a few completely new ones. We even had a glimpse of some of those additional characters (yes, Molag Bal is among them 😱). Most of the stories will be either smaller series (5-10 chapters) or stand-alones. As always even with all the changes, Kiki and I will strive to make you, our dear readers, smile, chuckle or be otherwise entertained. ☺️ Thank you for stopping by and we hope to see you soon! 🤗

-Don’t know why, but I had slow, low sounding drums playing in my mind when I read the first 2 “title” shots of this entry. 
-Love 4th wall breaking stories that come out of nowhere!

-i love the design of the  Head on the staff at the end (reminds me of the old Megadeath album covers). I wonder if someone used it and stuck it on a creature for a mob or made it into a helm.

Get a cheap USB drive and regularly copy the whole of your skyrim there. e.g. a folder for june, july, one for august ... :angel:

 

Note to myself: do it yourself, too! Tomorrow! Last copy is from february 🤔

You pumped up Visuals quite much 🥰

 

But its still holds the cute adorable style you usually have.

 

It was a funny sweet way to tell how your skyrim went to Mehrunes Dagon hahaha.

 

Im glad you back to making stories ☺️

This is how all blog updates should be done!

 

Sucks to hear you had to do a complete reinstall. I have somehow managed to avoid needing that so far, so I can't imagine the frustration.

 

Very excited to see the new stories in your beautiful, revamped Skyrim

Thank you, Drunna! Strangest thing about the drums. I also kept hearing those while doing the first few screenshots 🤔 Must be a coincidence! 😅

Kiki is great at breaking 4th wall and just generally traveling through all my stories. The staff at the end is the skull of corruption from the vanilla game. I just upgraded the graphics a little (ok, a LOT) and now it finally looks pretty menacing. I really like the design as well. It's just the right amount of creepy.

I'm glad you enjoyed this little episode! ☺️

No truer words have ever been spoken.  I am now doing backups of backups! 😂

Thank you, Res! 🤗

Yes, I generally tried to improve the visuals while still keeping previously used ENB so my overall style could stay the same.  I toyed with an idea of changing it, but I think if I suddenly went for a more somber and darker look my stories just wouldn't feel right.  And yep-yep, I'm back to writing my completely lore-friendly (well, they are lore-friendly in my book at least) tales. 😊

Hehehe, thank you, Colly!

It was either "Hey guys, so I broke my Skyrim" post or this.  I figured if I'm going to explain why most of my stuff now looks so different I might as well make something fun in the process. 😅 The frustration levels were no joke, though. I even dipped into my secret stash of chocolate chip cookies at some point! And those were supposed to be for emergencies only 😱.

And new stories are already in the making! 😇

Thanks, Jayomms! I know I said it before, but I really enjoy your little Sheogorath/Jay-omm snippets and commentary. They are absolutely great! 🤗

Thanks, DJ! ☺️ Skypocalypse was a bit scary. But everyone pulled through alright.  As a result of it, some of my characters are on a well-deserved vacation right now.  The new (and old) stories should be able to cover for them, though. 😇

Also patiently waiting for the next entry.

 

I know what a pain it is to finally get everything working again (i just redid FO4 the last two days). I hope that everything will work out fine for you. :)

Oh yes, I remember my first reinstall... The smell of a burnt hard drive, a list of over 200  mods to download, and unbridled enthusiasm... It seems everyone goes through it, sooner or later one way or another. Some go through it a few times, some even start to like it (It’s more like a masochistic kink, Aria knows).
Anyway, this is a very cute and beautifully decorated restart! Congratulations! *Impatiently monitor what is happening*

Must agree with Collygon here, that was an entertaining way to present a reinstall. So much that the graphical update make me wonder if you had moved on to Skyrim SE or something (until I remembered you started with that). Just one word of advice though : any jaxoning is stored within your saves, which means that they are meant to be temporary, otherwise they will mess up your game due to the bloating. In other words, if you need large amounts of durable edits, the Creation Kit is the way to go.

Now, in terms of entertainment, you did nice quiproquos/puns all along (for example with staff's size ^^), you've introduced a plethora of new characters, and you world is as colored as ever... I'm glad it recovered ! :smiley:

                 As for Mrs Eira, and Mr Cyrus, they should very marry, and they should very invite me at their wedding. 😗 »

Thank you for the kind comment, Aylis.  I agree, it is a huge pain but it does feel very nice once everything works the way you want.  Congrats on updating your FO4, by the way! 🤗

🤣🤣 You've captured the feeling of reintallation perfectly!!! I don't think I've gotten to the masochistic side of it yet, though.  I'm more in the " Oh gods, please just work already!" state. 😅

Thank you for the words of encouragement! I'll try not to delay the next story too much.  😇

Thank you for the kind words, Tirloque!  I use separate profiles and separate saves for any scenes that have a jaxxoned surrounding, so nothing overwrites them (and in cases of smaller scenes I simply delete the save afterwards).  Skyrim SE still lacks many of the more refined textures and ENBs that can be found for LE, but it's slowly getting there.  With this new setup I was picking something that would provide pretty screenshots for storytelling while still allowing me to actually play the game (so nothing overly bright/dark/blurry etc).

 

You're right about a plethora of new characters. 😅 This is one of those moments when I'm glad that my blog is called " Skyrim's misAdventures" and not "Kiki's Tale"  because it definitely looks more like a collection of various stories.  I would love to be more organized and disciplined in my writing like most of the authors here (you and the chronicles of Mereth, Crw and the naughty nuns, Alter and gorgeous Nora, Spy and Cassidey and many, many others) but I tend to be inspired by the most random things so at best all of my tales are just somewhat loosely connected. 😏 Still, I think as long as they are fun for me to make and entertaining for the readers to follow along it all works out. 🤗

 

Dear Malicia, Kiki is definitely very intelligent and pretty, just like you! And she told me that you have a great culinary taste because you also like cookies!  I don't think Mrs Eira and Mr Cyrus would be able to marry, because their bosses wouldn't really approve of it. But because of their accidental binding they will be stuck together for some time, so we'll see more of their adventures at some point. 😉

Such a great and creative way to deal with a situation like this!

You've assembled quiet a cast of characters by now and I'm also glad to see kiki again. 

 

"All of this means that some of my tales will have to be put on hold until I find suitable substitutes."

If you need specific mods I think you can always just ask people most people have several hundred mods installed and if you're looking for something specific, especially for storytelling I'm sure someone has the mod you're looking for somewhere on his or her hardrive.

 

Anyways take the time you need to set everything up, we'll all be patiently waiting on you :) .

Thank you for the kind comment, Alter!

I was actually able to find one of the larger mods in the exact manner that you suggested - somebody on a different site had it. ☺️ As for smaller things I'll just do what I usually do - improvise! 😅

As I've gotten most of the things in order, I'll try to have the new stories out soon(ish). 🤗
