Hello

 

If you are new Reader welcome!

 

I suggest cheking out the story sheet and start with the beginning.

 

https://www.loverslab.com/blogs/entry/6362-story-sheet-gwynolda/

 

 

 

 

 

The Purge of Riften(6/)

Just as I suspected, even the Halls of Dead are rotten and descreated.  Situation is worser then I expected, if the Halls of Arkay is corrupted, nothing keeps the undead at bay.. City could be overrun with the walking dead or worse.

I should be on guard and prepare the worst, not enough to deal this abomination what killed the temple, even might undeads as well.. Lack of my blessings is really limiting my ability to fight them..

 

Lets move on..

The Halls of Dead or one call it the Temple of Arkay serve one important purpose, keep the dead as dead. Arkay of Divine of Death, his priest make sure all corpses not turn into abominations or walk again, as well make sure the spirits go to the Aetherius.

There are no town and city in Skyrim without one, fact the temple of Arkay is fallen as well is terrible. There are no Divine pressence who protect the City, nor priest aside of myself.. No wonder Riften is this horrible..

Gwynolda: Huh?

Gwynolda: By The Eight!!

Priestess of Arkay, murdered and sexually desecrated by heretical ritual..

 

Two skulls..

 

One Black soulgem..

 

Blood...

 

She was killed after the soultrap and trapped into the soulgem, probably to sacrifice her to something.. maybe for summon that "Thing".

Gwynolda: There is a journal there...

Journal was nothing more then just madness.. barely any useful.. filthy heretical writings.. aside of these few sectences

 

"Soon the City will fall to the Chaos, we summoned the strongest here...."

 

"His death shall tremble the Empire.."

 

"We bound them to the Shrine of Mara, all of them are at his throat, expect one to watch"

 

"As She Command"

 

Even is there was almost nothing, it seems we have cult here, planning to murder someone strong? The question is who's the strongest? The Imperator Magus? Probably, if Gauis dies Empire will have a big problem.. But who is She? Daedric Prince? Or something else?

 

Gwynolda.....

 

1572090376_enb2019_09_2100_52_25_41.jpg.0d6d75aaabaebf688cda25cfbda35a51.jpg

 

Gwynolda: You again? Seems you followed me here! Fine them I found you vermin!

 

Come closer...Sybil of Dibella..face your doubts..

Whatever is this thing it just one, city probably have more and all of them targeting Gauis Magnus, I should kill this one.. it seems the deaths at the Temple of Mara was side effect of this thing, and they needed get rid Arkay of the City.

Voices are stronger in this part of the Halls, "that" is hiding somewhere close..

 

Your destiny holds nothing for you....

Aside of Suffer and Death...

The whispers getting louder.. I was right...getting close..

 

Soon you join the others, and all divine aspect is dead...

An empty room? Hiding in the shadows? I startin think that is not an daedric being..

 

Come closer...

Gwynolda: There is nothing here? Whats this a dead end? Which bone? Which shadow you hiding?!

 

Your faith is weak.. fallen cleric..

Gwynolda: I getting tired of these whispers and mind games...

Face your own darkness..

Gwynolda, been quite a while since I seen you.. You really grown up do you..

Her: Like my own face, you truly beautiful Gwynolda..

Gwynolda: Whats heresy is this? Do you read my mind? Or you plan to use this to trick me?

Eliza: There are no tricks here my dear Gwynolda, its just me and you

Gwynolda: Why are you naked?

Eliza: My dear you are Dibellan sister, nudity is natural way to greet you.. Are you scared me my body?

 

354293733_enb2019_09_2214_18_26_77.jpg.0c816aecf58a5a30bec31765ba6d1281.jpg

 

Gwynolda: Stay away from me "Mother"...

Eliza: Don't be like that let me see you closer..

Gwynolda: How insulting from you, is the best trick you can come off? My mother? You not really good reading my mind do you..

Eliza:....What do you mean my sweety? I am your mother my dear Gwynolda, your loving mother...

Gwynolda: You know my mother never called me anything else then "Daughter" or was ever loving to me.. rather a terrible illusion from you Abomination..

Eliza: But my sweet Gwynolda, don't you desire me that much? My love? Isn't that what you crave the most? A loving mother and her affection, a kiss or cuddle or just a hug?

 

Isn't this why you always look Older Women, to replace your own sweet Mother?

 

Who is your Mommy now sweety? Lady Dibella? Evelynn? Sister Jeanne? Uthgerd?

 

All of them left you...

 

Who gonna replace me next?

 

Gwynolda: ....

Eliza: Why not come closer Gwynolda and give a kiss to your birthplace? Thats what you truly desire.. Don't be shy..

Eliza: There are no shame, desiring your Mother's body, isn't this you imagined with all of those women, when you did with them? They were just replacements nothing more, come Gwynolda...

Gwynolda: Enough of you!!!..And this illusions!!...

Its futile Sybil, your goddess abandoned you like everyone else.. you die alone and your death will end all Divine influence in Riften..

 

And She will succeed.

And so the mystery is cleared ! I enjoyed once again how you mixed some lore with your own story, adding to its stakes and dimension with those Arkay reminders. The screens (and sword poses :cool: ) were as good as ever, with good lighting, good colors, good compositions, facial expressions and posing.

The "detective" aspect of Gwynolda's inquisitor talents were also a good setup to allow you to solve the ambushes you put on her road, also giving us a good insight on her actual skills. You also featured some dark erotism through the horror plot ; and at the same time placed some of the twists on a psychological dimension (the evil spirit's analysis on Gwynolda being surprisingly accurate, as within devils often are 🤔) ... aannd, last but not least, we also got a bit of action, with paladin G. slaying out the evil culprit. Nice entry ! :D

Thank you 😁

 

Indeed, its cleared, yet not answered all questions, we know what happened with the temple and what was behind of it. And yes it was good time on some bits of Arkay, after well scenes took place in his temple.

 

Im happy with the scenes, was worried about the fighting ones thought, since I not used to make fight scenes a lot. 

 

Detective aspect works well with lot of stories, and quite well with horror and obviously with mystery, after all Gwynolda was there to investigate, relying on her skills and knowledge to figure out what she facing and how to deal with it, seems fitting. when paladin/inquisitors seeking out evil.

 

Yeah, I figured out, we not really had any kind of erotic content in this arc, and find the right way to put it there, twisted aspects of it for the Dibellan sister, also revealed few things on Gwynolda's desires and taste in certain things like in women.

 

I personally think this ability of the evil spirit is more of making the target face its own darker sides and fears use it against them.

 

Now yes, the combat scene and the holy smite of the evil, Gwynolda finally can let out her divine justice.

Well Gwynolda knew something was very off with the tricks of the meany skeleton.

 

She got exhausted using her powers, the curse is still on her.

wow... thank you this episode was incredible again i just hope it's going to be really ending well for her and Riften and Dibella  😰

Oh boy, somehow this entry was even more creepy than the previous one. 😱 The whole scene with Eliza's illusion was such an incredible combination of sensuality and revulsion. I'm guessing the apparition was sensing Gwyn's basic emotions and desires but couldn't truly reach deeper into her mind (otherwise it would realize that Gwyn's resolution and will are much stronger than they might seem). 

 

But now we learned something very disturbing. There are many more of these shades within the city and if they are suppressing Arkay's influence that means a whole lot of draugr, skeletons and so on can awaken and start attacking everyone. It also seems that the shades can take on any shape, which would mean that they can easily infiltrate any place, be it the jarl's manor, the guards, the thieves guild and so on.

 

In addition to that, it looks like whoever that being is, they might be after Gauis. That leads me to believe that it could be an old rival of his. Considering how powerful Imperator Magus is, I shudder to think of how strong that unknown "She" really is. 🤔 Of course these are just speculations, but your story just keeps making the reader want to guess what happens next! 🤗

 

Really interesting and intriguing chapter. Thank you for sharing it with us. 😍

 

P.S. This screenshot is so pretty, that I just keep staring at it 🤩

Really nice entry. It had an old school horror vibe to it like The Exorcist or The Shining, back when horror was more about creepiness than shock, very well done.

Damn. Now it's getting hot in here ^_^ Really love those action scenes. But you know, there is a question about Gwynolda storyline that still troubles me...

Thank you 😁

 

Ohh Im glad to hear that, creepy-ness and unsetttling, almost disturbing vibes were my intetion, thats what makes me for the horror mood, and if this was better then the previous one in these aspect ❤️

 

Yeah, I wanted add an erotic context scene, and thought why not make it this way, we keep the core aspect of the story and Gwynolda's character, and make it a twisted scene, very fitting one for the horror vibe, for Gwynolda and for the story ^^

 

In the end he may was right about she looking for a mother figure for her life and desire motherly love, but Eliza is very thing she want destroy and hate the most, making her go incestious and creepy just really pissed off Gwynolda even more. 😧

 

Gwynolda's faith and zeal is stronger then ever, and due her new found resolve and goal, her will ain't gonna break, she really want get Dibella's favor at any cost, that something what was her strongest weapon against the shade.

 

Yeah, while the mystery of the temple is answered, we got new revelations and new mysteries as well. Temple of Mara was slain by one of this shades, and entire city has way more then one, and yes, these shades definetly can influence the city look worser then it seems, even making the worst one in all the Empire 😨

 

Yeah, Arkay's influence and pressense strongly undervalued, especially when the lack of it can cause serious problems and menacing scenarios to be honest, hence Gwynolda's worry.

 

He was targered with a Reason.

 

And the mysterious "She", althought Riften is already a terrible city, so her acitvities and plans easily can be hidden from even the Imperator Magus himself.

I be honest, the jump scare, loud music and other lame stuff we get from horror is terrible, cause lets be honest from a jump scare and we affected for like a few sec til we calm and that was it.

 

Creepyness and Unsettling is where the true horror for me, such thing can make you think for days if a good movie made you feel that disturbed.

 

So I favor these elements and use them.

And the sword blessing pic is one of the coolest pic in the entry.

Thank you 😁

 

Ahh yeah, action scenes, they weren't easy for me, probably hardest scene out of the chapter.

 

Good question, I think they probably in the stables 🤗

Yeah, modern horror and its associated tropes are pretty shit.

I agree, they lack of creativity and vision or even depeer meaning and symbolism.

 

Using the genre actual strenghts is ain't a big thing honestly, all it need some creavity and the actual aspects.

 

first persons games kinda meh in horror for me, and nowadays movies ain't use any of the strenghts of the genre.

 

for these two chapter, all I did just used them due my mood for horror 😁

Nicely done! I agree, you're doing an awesome job setting up the horror theme here. Even though the daedra/evil is gone, the mystery of its cause remains. Awesome work!
