as a new player, to the who Elder Scrolls/Oblivion series but having played Skyrim.
The profit reminds of the Moth Priest who gets blinded by reading the elder scroll, But I started thinking, what if he was already blind, and bluffing with a perfect poker face?
I mean the guy could bluff Molag Bal while being tortured in the soul carn, and still manage to telepathically bother the player (then again Molag Bal isn't that particularly good at scheming.. He's a very lucky schemer)
So I figure pretending to know what it says on an elder scroll wouldn't be that difficult, and pretending to be a noobish vampire lord's thrall is particularly easy, when you beat the lord of schemes in his own scheming.
Oh and I am probably wrong anyways, as I said I am noob in the whole Elder Scrolls/ oblivion series.
