sexy modded skyrim women are a permanent fixture of skyrim modding but there’s a topic that doesnt get discussed nearly enough and that topic is sexy modded oblivion women. getting a fully rendered 4k textures collision physics enabled digital simulacrum of what men on the internet believe women look like is peanuts, but you have to work so, so hard to animefy oblivion character models and even when people try it doesnt work. because its Oblivion. but theyre just so gosh darn earnest about it that its almost endearing

also I'm deeply enjoying how drastically different the Imperials and Nords see the Dragonborn. like in Nord culture, the Dragonborn is the archrtypical Nord hero and to what all Nords of all stations can and should aspire to, they're a religious and cultural symbol and myth and embodiment of the Old Ways when Skyrim could stand against dragons and come out victorious, when the Nords were the center of human civilization on Tamriel before Skyrim was just another province in the empire.
meanwhile the Imperials hear 'Dragonborn' and think: emperors and conquerors, the imperial bloodline, the very foundation of the state and the religious pantheon. people don't just aspire to be like Dragonborn bc the Dragonborn is basically walking proof of the divine right of kings. Dragonborn to the imperials embodies the dragon part, not the dragon slayer. and more than anything, the Dragonborn is the embodiment of the state itself and the empire's legitimacy.
all of this is to say: both General Tullius and Ulfric Stormcloak must've been over the moons excited for the appearance of the Dragonborn and taken it for granted that the LDB would join their side over the other and give them an unbeatable boost in morale and credibility. meanwhile Rikke, the only one who seems to really, genuinely get both cultures, is just "Ah shit, this is gonna suck."

wrt modern lorebooks being placed in ancient tombs. we know that the draugr walk around and maintain the tombs by lighting candles and such. and we know that nords still honour the dead in many tombs by leaving offerings. AND it’s not uncommon for parties of adventurers to die in tombs and leave all their crap behind. so what i’m saying is that when you find a 3e lorebook in a place of honour within a merethic era tome, it’s because the draugr that found it read it and really liked it :)

"I'll be frank. I don't like Cicero. To me, he feels like he became the Scrappy Doo of Skyrim. I couldn't deal with him for a full questline. I added the option to kill him in The Cure for Madness for a reason. Enough is enough. He has some funny moments, but nobody is laughing anymore."

Did You Know: By changing the “fDlgFocus” value in Oblivion’s ini file, you can adjust how much the camera zooms in when you talk to an NPC? By increasing it enough you can stop it from zooming in entirely, or you can decrease it to zoom in even more, if that’s what you really want.
