And now it continues, with the quest to discover the hidden secrets that might be the only means to fight back against the darkness and free the people of Solstheim once and for all.

-No time to waste, follow me into the shadows

-Beware of the City... many have sought it's mysteries, yet very few have returned.

-This place gives me the creeps

-We'll have to take the longer path and go deeper in order to reach it.

4b4383fa49286d67d9f3e8486359cb13.jpg-As I explained to you, my dear, the Dwemer wouldn't make it easier for trespassers to get a hold on their most precious relics, fortunately for us, this means this place has been protected from looters for centuries. The bad news, is we are the looters now, and everything in this place can and will try to kill us.
-*Sigh* It's never easy with the Dwemer is it?

f5088335cfb2d69fca627f0da8b0f5ee.jpgThe sunken city was unique even among other Dwemer ruins.
As the party ventured into the deep, the city became alive as it recognized it's newest guests, and as it went undisturbed for so long, it was almost as if it wanted them there, it wanted to open its halls and corridors and fill them with life again, making sure the newcomers would never leave. The dormant city was gradually becoming awake and echoing with the sound of a thousand metal legs, cogs and steam engines that where the mechanical wonders of the past.

Oh that's a great compliment coming from you, thanks!

Vampire is just my Serana, but I'm sure you already knew that

Thanks, I wasn't sure it was Serana or not, I need to read the older entries of you. Until today I didn't know you were doing stories at all. :thumbsup:

Yeah, I started relatively recently. Nothing as ellaborate as yours for now, but more of a "let's play" with narrative touches, screenshot mementos, and a few variations to the story that relate more to my game world, like IE how Amy is sharing body with a lost Daedra, or how she wasn't alone in fighting Alduin, but she did it with the help of my paladin, how he's married to Elisif and Amy to Serana, or the fact her sword is borrowed from Alice who was my Oblivion main, and now the aspect of Sheogorath, stuff like that.. Hope I get the chance to illustrate more of these as I try to expand the tales. Also running different timelines for other characters and some more adult content I guess.

Sounds great :O.

Looking forward to see stories more divergent from Skyrim gameplay. 

Also some NSFW content will get you in trouble with the Nexus, but people her won't complain. :D
