In the unknown...

 

Spoiler

Shea: Gods, where am I?

 

Kzw6rrml o

 

Shea: And this place is cold, a shame these...wings and markings don't get hot.

 

Svuovwgd o

 

Shea: And these wings are heavy, I just hope these can disappear.

 

Spofx0rt o

 

Shea: Because wings aren't exactly my thing

 

P7ihg1qj o

 

Shea: But I'm alive...

 

Sx4th1aa o

 

Shea: ...and away from...Destro.

 

Bqrodoz4 o

 

Shea: Well this looks like a bedroom.

 

Caaxlvty o

 

Shea: It does have a big bed.

 

S3e5o3ml o

 

Shea: And a nice and cosy fireplace.

 

Zj6tzumi o

 

Shea: And what's this?

 

Xsnuw4fs o

 

Note: Welcome to your world again. You're away from your friend Destro, perhaps a little too far, not that you should care. I have a list for you. As each inconvenience is removed I'll lead you to the next. Your first is Count Uhtred. Hjaalmarch. You'll find him. There's also some clothes I deemed suitable. Enjoy your freedom while you can mortal.

 

98odxjzw o

 

Shea: I suppose it could be worse, I should be glad I'm even out alive.

 

Uzeyv3t1 o

 

A few moments later...

 

Shea: These, suitable?  They look like something a pansy in the College of Winterhold would wear.

 

Xwuum3bj o

 

Shea: And it's really fucking cold!

 

Euxiue6j o

 

Shea: Well at least this place has some furs.

 

I0mwb1gv o

 

Shea: But there might be something better in here.

 

Qtgvtjbk o

 

Shea: This is nice, but just screams that I'm a vampire and that I'm here to kill someone.

 

Jnuwrmdz o

 

Shea: But I like it.

 

2x8zsca3 o

 

Shea: But this is...amazing, but a bit of a blast from the past.

 

Xstsckte o

 

Shea: Yeah I think this is better.

 

Gasxzylw o

 

Shea: Is that my sword? It's been too long.

 

Pwzvhjmw o

 

A few minutes later...

 

Shea: Okay I could've wore that other robe. It does seem I'm in Winterhold.

 

Xoqvrtgu o

 

Shea: I'm not used to snow, rain yes. But not snow.

 

6b8dcvgr o

 

Shea: And certainly not frozen wastelands.

 

Hlsvv7us o

 

Shea: Well I better get moving if I want to be somewhere else soon.

 

Lpndxtlk o

 

 

Spoiler

Shea: So this is Morthal?

 

Gawxck61 o

 

Shea: Doesn't look very interesting, but I suppose that's what would make it such a good hiding spot for a vampire.

 

Fz7g1b2j o

 

Shea: I suppose I may as well get down there.

 

Nk8fuofh o

 

Shea: Okay, I'm never running down rocks again!

 

Qspri8vy o

 

Shea: Well I think the inn will be the best place to get word of any rumours.

 

7xapsamp o

 

Shea: That looks like the right way.

 

Zknpdnuj o

 

Shea: Moorside inn? Could they have picked a better name?

 

Zyjqbab5 o

 

Shea: Well travellers and locals will be there so I suppose the name shouldn't matter.

 

Okcnnxq0 o

 

Shea: Well this is quieter than I thought it'd be.

 

Io1afsbd o

 

Shea: Hey, I've heard there's been a vampire problem here.

 

Mwgkfjxl o

 

Innkeep: Here, yeah a few. The guards do a good enough job though.

 

Bq7rwqr7 o

 

Shea: Well I'm sure they could use some help right?

 

Beodzfaa o

 

Innkeep: They always do fine on their own stranger, now if you aren't stayin' the night or drinkin' could ya leave?

 

Lp1tg2o9 o

 

Shea: Well thanks for the help. I guess.

 

Il5wjnmb o

 

Shea: Well that was useless, I suppose I better get on with the search, if I want to be free of this deal anytime soon.

 

Ihconjoy o

 

A few moments later...

 

Shea: Going out into the swamp doesn't seem like the best idea, but I'm a stranger and I doubt the people will help me now.

 

Ehgqwfch o

 

Shea: But right now, I have damn near nothing to lose.

 

Dq3fasuj o

 

An hour or so later...

 

Shea: I'm starting to see why people hate travelling through these swamps now. They are far from pleasant.

 

P7n4uvbs o

 

Shea: It's damp and cold. Water up to your knees. It's supposedly haunted as well.

 

Cpedm61u o

 

Shea: Oh and spiders too, but I have to find this...Uhtred. Was it count, baron or lord. I can't remember.

 

Kvj4fkjl o

 

Shea: I suppose it doesn't matter while I'm in this decrepit swamp.

 

Ev5x1yms o

 

Shea: Now if I was a vampire in hiding, where would I be?

 

Up8r8gje o

 

???: You won't leave this world alive.

 

Jznz3qtx o

 

Shea: What?! Who are you?

 

Qzct8am3 o

 

???: I am the monument to all of your sins.

 

Vnilixp4 o

 

Shea: Show yourself!

 

Qvbee5wl o

 

???: Never mortal, for I have no place here. But your sins have built monuments here. Homes even.

 

Hxqenklo o

 

Shea: If you truly are a 'monument to my sins' show me my sins!

 

Zprw9wjk o

 

???: {As Destro} You are nothing! I still can't believe I expected so much of you!

 

Rtj4augc o

 

Shea: How do you?!

 

L6c6lwsm o

 

???: You know, how. I am a bearer of all this world's sins. Your's wrath.

 

Heykux70 o

 

Shea: Well, I get why they say this place is haunted now.

 

Hltl2t7r o

 

Shea: And here I am, forcing myself through this thick fog, that seems to know everything about me.

 

Rmaja7je o

 

Shea: But I suppose I should count myself lucky, that I'm still alive in this place, and not rotting in a cell.

 

Bxohblvk o

 

Shea: At least this place won't get any darker. Darkness and fog don't work together well.

 

Akagjehw o

 

Shea: And into the fray I go. And I'll be out just as soon.

 

2go9rt2w o

 

Shea: Damn this fog is thick, almost as thick as troll cu-. Actually with a sentient fog I'm not sure it's a good idea to finish that.

 

Mpbnznas o

 

Shea: Though that was a good time, if not a little painful.

 

Z3mskwja o

 

Shea: I remember it being in the great marsh in High Rock, when I returned, it was an interesting talk, if I remember right.

 

L8vlxmu9 o

 

Shea: But at least the marshes in High Rock never had knee deep water.

 

Nlcufiok o

 

Shea: But it can't be that far to go, even in water.

 

Iwyiqku3 o

 

Shea: Even in this god awful place, I don't think I realised how much I hate swamps.

 

T58dhcz9 o

 

Shea: Well that looks like a place a vampire would hide.

 

F6jxgznv o

 

Shea: A Nordic burial tomb I think. Well a ruin now.

 

Jnokkcu8 o

 

Shea: Well this doesn't look good.

 

Xr3l4az6 o

 

Shea: Blood pouring from a neck bite, a vampire has certainly been on the prowl. And a very hungry vampire, I don't think I've even been this hungry before. Well in Bruma perhaps.

 

I5xvanfz o

 

Shea: And it looks as if...

 

Kmcvdrfi o

 

Shea: Yeah the vampire killed another vampire, something usually punishable by death, if you follow the code.

 

N5hqp5kg o

 

Shea: And feeding off another vampire makes one even thirstier. This could be a dangerous thing to deal with.

 

Lerslgin o

 

Shea: Well I have a smell now. It isn't pleasant, I suppose I shouldn't be surprised.

 

Fqjwn4t4 o

 

Shea: And it leads that way, I think. It's been a while since I've had to use my nose to track something.

 

Pyphhueo o

 

Shea: And this will be my first fight for a while as well.

 

Fhktezmf o

 

Spoiler

Shea: Well I can still smell him at least.

 

Tpei4jc4 o

 

Shea: And that looks like a shack in the distance. And, with a faint hue of blood.

 

Lk7q33lk o

 

Shea: Finally, some respite from the swamp. And my ticket out of here.

 

A1kliub4 o

 

Shea: That stench! That isn't good. I hope I won't have to come back here anytime...soon.

 

Rwe6cysh o

 

Shea: Uhtred! I have to say that's a strange name for an elf.

 

Nijyosbl o

 

Uhtred: So he's found someone to end me.

 

Qjjam9lg o

 

Uhtred: I suppose I should've expected that you'd be here soon.

 

7lzqa272 o

 

Shea: Good you know why I'm here. That makes things easier.

 

Habhempl o

 

Uhtred: Well I doubt you'll beat me, I think only two people could beat me. Lady Shea, who is exiled, or Destro who's so self absorbed in his own castle that he wouldn't serve Molag Bal.

 

Algefqk7 o

 

Uhtred: Aah. I see. Lord Molag has outplayed me again. Well I have no last words, and I doubt you do either. So lets not put this on hold any longer.

 

312wveke o

 

Shea: Fine, quick and unrelenting, just the way I like it.

 

Ladqqwsh o

 

Shea: Oh come on, could you have picked something more obvious?

 

Vgb98vm6 o

 

Uhtred: I could have, but I see you've kept well in exile.

 

Rlbv4wyi o

 

Shea: I have a name to uphold in two realms, and I'd prefer you were just another name under my belt.

 

Bi06hhrc o

 

Shea: Don't leave that line open! That's always what I hated about sabres, they can't block that well.

 

Ix6gyhxh o

 

Uhtred: Arghh! You, will fail. The daedra won't win!

 

6bb65rzg o

 

Shea: Oh a turncoat, that explains why Molag wants you dead.

 

9md5ht6s o

 

Uhtred: You finally figured out...Took you long enough.

 

0mzwpwlt o

 

Shea: Fine, I have something I've wanted to try, I just needed a fool like you to try it on.

 

Wjnao9hj o

 

Shea: {Thwack!}

 

Uwbexaek o

 

Uhtred: You think that would do anything? I was tutored by Destro, but you do have a good strike.

 

2oud353s o

 

Shea: (I should've known that. But remember, just bring up to parry and then riposte)

 

Mmzfe8dj o

 

Shea: Aargh! {Clink}

 

U62uocal o

 

Uhtred: Wha-?!

 

Eluxob4x o

 

Uhtred: Coward! You know nothing of honour, do you?

 

9ajdtleo o

 

Uhtred: But since you got exiled, I'm not surprised.

 

Moyu3jdv o

 

Uhtred: You don't think I'd be that stupid!

 

Bptskgdd o

 

Shea: Woaahh!

 

Is2l7lqq o

 

Uhtred: Now that makes things fair again.

 

Gijomofi o

 

Shea: Fine! We can play like that! 

 

9oxfiy8y o

 

Shea: Aarghhh!

 

Kgvmkqwz o

 

Uhtred: Ahh! {laboured breathing}

 

Uencadvl o

 

Shea: See you can't even beat me...with your magic!

 

Qzvyi5yv o

 

Uhtred: Haha! You think that will make a difference?

 

Odcva0ei o

 

Uhtred: You will be a puppet, that's all you will be!

 

Gzpmfzbz o

 

Uhtred: And that will never change, you will be discarded like what you are. Nothing!

 

X2i2j15b o

 

Shea: Aye, perhaps that's all I will be, but there isn't much in discussing it with you.

 

3nqfes3s o

 

Shea: Goodbye, Uhtred, may you find some respite in Coldharbour.

 

Gct7lkfr o

 

Shea: My work here is done.

 

Gtlycoxd o

 

Shea: {Whistling} "His Smile fair as spring, as towards him he draws you."

 

Dnxqzudb o

 

Shea: ''His tongue sharp and silvery as he implores you''

 

Nnrnagku o

 

Shea: "Your wishes he grants, as he swears to adore you''

''Gold, silver, jewels he lay riches before you''

 

B6oyslc4 o

 

Shea: '' Dues need be repaid and he will come for you''

'' All to reclaim, no smile to console you''

 

Llytjgop o

 

Shea: '' He'll snare you in bonds, eyes glowing afire''

''To gore and torment you until the stars expire''

 

 

 

 

Thank you for reading it means a lot. Please leave feedback as it helps me greatly when I make these. Once again thank you!

Aria: Wow.... Shae that was badass of you, you took down Xavier, um I mean Uhtred ;) I should have given you a "Summon Aria" Book, if you ever need a helping hand that is. You seem badass enough to me

 

Great work, nice read.

Shea: Oh was that his name? Blame Molag Bal, he was the one who wrote the note.

Well done! Definitively one of your best so far. I like that you increased the length of your entries. The fight in the end was quite good, until the end it was unclear who'd win. :)

 

Consider uploading an entry image for your blog / entry, so your blog is better recognizable.

Thanks, I'm glad the fight was a bit confusing at the end. Because 'Uhtred' (Definitely not Xavier) lost physically, but can Shea really win if she's serving the the Daedric Lord of Domination.

 

And I'll look into an entry image.

A good entry overall. I particularly liked the misty ambiance of the swamps, which combined to good fullscreen screens was quite immersive. And you definitely improved at fighting scenes... though they're still a bit lacking in clarity yet (it's not obvious when she picked-up her sword, nor switched from punches to her sword on the final scene for example). At the other end, lots of excellent screens (colors, poses, panning and everything) in there. Length was about right too. So, a pleasant read. Smiley_jap_HFR.gif

Shea: I figured that out, and besides, I'm fine with people thinking that, they might just get clawed or bitten if they try anything.
