Chapter One Act Four: You won't believe the power the Nords have hidden there...

Hey guys, welcome to Act Four!

 

I'll be honest here, not much happens in this Act. I know we have all been through Bleak Falls Barrow a hundred times too many, but I'm taking you through it again... sorry. There is also very little writing or dialogue in this Act. I had over 400 photos to use and had to do a lot of cuts and editing to fit everything I needed in. So I'm sorry this Act doesn't follow the same standards and theme as usual; it shouldn't happen again. On the bright side, all the Malkor fans get to see him two Acts in a row, so woohoo!

 

Also, I can't believe this blog is almost to 2000 views! I know how much you guys LOVE to comment (>.> wait...), so if you want to request I do pictures of one or more of the characters let me know. I also have a special crossover coming up, but I'll keep that a surprise for now

;).

 

I hope you enjoy this post, sorry if it's kinda boring :/

 

 

 

 

Outside Bleak Falls Barrow, the tomb sits as restful as ever. Not a sound is made from the dilapidated stones nor freshly fallen corpses. Inside, the echoes of shifting and sliding stones bring life to the halls of the dead.

Elyvaea: Alright! That should do it

 

28124081317_670fe59b1b_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: It better!

 

28124081367_7501b8310c_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: It's my ass on the line after all.

 

Gerruck sucks in a breath and wraps his hand around the handle. Making sure to look away from the holes in the walls, loaded with poisoned darts, he heaved on the lever. To his relief, the sound of scraping metal hinges rang in his ears rather than the pinging of darts.

 

28124081267_b718736967_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: See? Nothing to worry about.

 

42273870544_5da94129a5_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: Well... At least for now.

 

28124081187_37642aa7b6_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: You'll never learn will you? With me around you never have to worry!

 

42090692815_51f557c51f_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: And you'll never learn that it is exactly that attitude that-

 

Strange Voice: Is... Is someone coming? Is that you Harknir? Bjorn? Soling? I know I ran away with the claw, but I need help!

 

42992242471_a042cdf1c9_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Nope! This is Gerruck and Elyvaea, and last I checked your friends weren't breathing.

 

42090692695_9d4949cf6a_o.jpg
 

Elyvaea: Was that really necessary, Gerruck?

 

42090692625_7375b066d3_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: It absolutely was. All the other bandits died so fast I never got the chance to really scare them.

 

42273870074_85ddea938b_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Speaking of being scared, looks like I found the cause of the little bandit's predicament.

 

Elyvaea: Ugh... I hate spiders.

 

42273869924_7f6900b3c3_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Well I'll be the one in it's face anyway...

 

41905361320_20d973a40a_o.jpg

 

Gerruck draws his sword and slices through the thick webbing, sending pieces flying and drifting back onto the stone floor. As the final strands are cut free, Gerruck slowly creeps through the doorway, keeping his sword drawn. As he enters the tomb, a subtle clicking emanates from above and a great shadow looms across the floor.

42992240941_c10f41a11b_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Alright, ugly, let's fight!

 

42992241031_3c23c71b9b_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: Try and be a little careful...

The Frostbite spider hisses as Elyvaea's arrow pierces it's body, causing it to shriek and writhe before falling to the ground in a heap.

 

Gerruck: Nice shooting, love.

 

42090692175_c212472060_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: Big spider, big target.

 

Gerruck: Speaking of targets...

 

42273868754_3c2225ba29_o.jpg

 

42273869464_6264917147_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Let's say hello to our little friend over here.

 

42992241711_d68c9d7b77_o.jpg

 

Bandit: Thank goodness you're here! Let me down, please!

 

Elyvaea: Awww, you sure? Looks quite comfortable up there.

 

42273869334_f3d811f20b_o.jpg

 

Bandit: I have the golden claw, let me down and I'll show you how to use it. You won't believe the power the Nords have hidden there.

 

42273869194_4b793c4253_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: Now why would I let you down for that? I could just take the claw while your stuck...

 

42992241591_6a3ceb04c1_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Or I can just kill you and take the claw from your corpse.

 

42992241431_06b4223557_o.jpg

 

Bandit: Wait wait wait wait, no need for that. Uh, just cut me loose and I'll give it to you. Just don't kill me...

 

42273869054_c79835c6d5_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: You sure? I really wouldn't mind killing you.

 

Elyvaea: Gerruck.

 

Gerruck: Oh fine.

 

Gerruck hacks away at the webbing, not bothering to avoid hitting the bandit. After multiple hacks at the webbing and a few "accidental" ones at the bandit, the bandit drops to the ground, the golden claw landing beside him.

 

42992241301_7f7d43ff88_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: You may want to run now. And leave the claw.

 

42273868844_b5ecd27bcd_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Look at him go... I doubt it would have been a good fight, but it would have been one none the less...

 

42090691685_c910fb7719_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: Oh, don't whine. Besides, with this claw I believe we'll be doing a lot more fighting from here on out. Wanna find out what this ancient power is?

 

42273870824_c5faabc0dd_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Well I think Lucan can wait until we find the exit...

 

42273870904_e266456e3f_o.jpg
 

Gerruck: However long that may take.

 

 

 

 

28124152647_b45f5cbfa1_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: You Nords sure did know how to make things creepy...

 

42273914244_13879d69db_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: What? This isn't creepy at all!

 

42273914164_34872a7b66_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: I'd say it's rather nice

 

28124152567_17a0b2c39e_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: Well let's stop enjoying the scenery and focus. We have been in enough tombs to know what's coming.

 

42273914054_564df772cd_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Ha! Very true. About time I got a good fight.

Elyvaea: I'll never get used to those things...

 

42090743595_837d2aa129_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Draugr are nothing. It's these traps that I'll never get used to...

Elyvaea: So after I do all that work, I just pull a lever so you can come through easily?

 

43714614341_32fa8b99f8_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Yes...

 

43714614221_dd72288073_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: Hmm, fine. I guess you deserve it.

 

43714663391_5ecd9b73c4_o.jpg

 

41182168660_719b71298a_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: Ready to keep going?

 

28124152697_7d9e1f476e_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Of course. I smell rotting corpses ahead, so its bound to be fun from here on.

Gerruck: Well, that was one way to do things.

 

42942731522_932e7e6d49_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: You better not hit one of those again though!

 

Elyvaea sighs.

 

29120175928_d6861bfda8_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Alright, about time!

 

29120175838_d239c2b555_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Let's dance!

28124197197_4f5214443c_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: Yes, well, don't get used to it.

Gerruck: Sometimes I think you just wait to kill them right before I do.

 

Elyvaea: Hmm, very strange thing to think.

42992375591_f57cb29ecf_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: This time though...

 

42992375481_076eaaaa61_o.jpg

 

42090823795_1ffbf2fc1a_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: Oh boy...

 

42992375411_e8cd707319_o.jpg

 

42090823575_92cdcaa8f4_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Woohoo! See Elyvaea, I don't ne-

 

42992375301_71b834a6a2_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Huh?

 

42090823445_2b98d9449e_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: Great. Be careful, Gerruck, there are a lot incoming.

 

42090823325_5fd58d1057_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Damn. You're sure right about that.

 

42090823025_b8768689ce_o.jpg

 

42090822925_4fb823fdb4_o.jpg

 

42090823155_f941797c47_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Unfortunately for them, this is exactly what I've been waiting for!

Elyvaea: Is that all of them?

 

42992374791_d1bfb816d1_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: I think so...

 

42992374801_e52238611f_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: Well then, lets keep going. I have a feeling we are getting close.

Gerruck: Incredible...

 

42090821165_fdc69f3f21_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: The history of my ancestors. Every time I see these I'm amazed.

 

42090820975_e82fbba72e_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: Uh...

 

42090820865_5b4e4b6388_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: You can actually read these markings?

 

42992374011_5d890b6250_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: I don't have to be able to.

 

42992373851_ab34c6c447_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: And you don't have to be a Nord to appreciate this

 

28124233647_4a642540b6_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: Maybe so... but I think that is what really interests me

 

28124233677_edf7629095_o.jpg

 

28124233627_83443f979b_o.jpg

 

28124233597_605a7cf752_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: When was the last time we ran into one of these doors? Two years ago?

 

Elyvaea: Something like that. Emerald Claw, right? Still regret selling it...

 

28124233537_bc906a7b54_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Well hopefully Lucan will pay us more in gold than the claw itself is worth. Speaking of which, you still have it, gonna stick it in?

 

28124233467_3008984719_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: Isn't that your job, Gerruck?

 

42992373431_9b5902b62d_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Huh?

 

28124235197_995d7b140e_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Oooh, heheh...

 

42992375891_ca70bf1f05_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Hahaha!

 

28124235117_1b4550bcf6_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Hahahahahahahahaha!

 

 

 

 

41182284070_ce81229357_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Woah...

 

41182284050_c59f731e42_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: Oh wow

 

41182284160_d54592d633_o.jpg

 

41182283970_16b47b9b58_o.jpg

 

42992406621_26a3d6a185_o.jpg

 

42992406581_33fda4e227_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: Even after all our adventures, I can't believe I'm still put in awe at some sights.

 

41182283780_ab6b2dc993_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Indeed...

 

42992406441_a0e16623d9_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Are you seeing what I'm seeing?

 

41182283580_56fbc9e23f_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: Seeing what? Gerruck?

 

41182283670_24610fcfe5_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: That... glowing.

 

42992406311_7fa06fef61_o.jpg

 

42992406111_d09e03d63a_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: What is it?

 

42992405881_1dfa76a870_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: I don't see anything...

 

Gerruck: Just wait there

 

41182283460_9030545afd_o.jpg

 

41182283310_8b29aced8f_o.jpg

 

41182283220_9f61411e80_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Wait... what? It's gone.

 

42992405701_a0535a9ca8_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: Gerruck? Are you okay?

 

41182283100_b7c6e83e96_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Uh, yeah...

 

Gerruck felt flustered. Not from any effect from the strange magic, nor exhaustion from the journey, but rather the opposite. He felt nothing; just confusion to what he had just witnessed.

 

42992405631_469ccb2a39_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: This crypt just has me on edge is all, ha ha!

 

Elyvaea: I hope that's all, love. You tell me if you start feeling strange, though.

 

Before Gerruck has a chance to speak, the lid of the coffin beside him is thrown off with a loud thud. As the lid hits the floor, a massive draugr rises from slumber, brandishing the largest great axe the two of them had ever seen.

42992405461_d89a686ee0_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Brace yourself...

 

41182282700_1db3bc7a33_o.jpg

 

Gerruck: Something tells me this guy won't be as easy as the others

41182284340_b6aac2c800_o.jpg

 

Elyvaea: He wasn't that bad.

 

Gerruck: No... no he was not

 

42992407031_079fbb995b_o.jpg

 

Gerruck and Elyvaea trudge away from their fallen foe. Muscles aching and heads swinging. Not only did they complete the job given to them, but they delved deep into an ancient nordic ruin. However, despite that, Gerruck couldn't shake the feeling it wasn't quite over.

 

41182284300_49e4bebd14_o.jpg

 

Whatever the magic was that he saw, it had something specific to do with him. What he couldn't quite figure out though, was why.

 

 

 

 

In the mountains near Windhelm, a rushing wind howls across the ridges. Passing through an old dwemer lift, the air whistles like an alarm.

Malkor: Grrr... the sun is worse than I remember.

Malkor: Fortunately, I came prepared.

Malkor: I guess this will have to do.

 

Malkor exits the lift, his eyes still burning from the glare. Behind him, the centurion follows, as obedient as ever.

Malkor: Now, where have I arrived?

Malkor: It seems my calculations were correct... I'm very close.

Malkor: Time to pay the cult a visit. After five years, I'm sure they'll be thrilled by my return.

 

 

 

 

I know this Act was long, but it would have been even longer is I included text and the other 200 or so pictures... Sorry there wasn't much to read in my last two posts. Don't worry, it won't become a theme, it just happened to end up this way. Thanks so much for reading and the support!
