Where are all the Ohmes?

"The Ohmes is the most Mer-like Khajiit. They are shorter than a Bosmer and have similar pointed ears. Unlike other Khajiit they have no fur, no tail, and no naturally occurring distinguishable Khajiit feature. To distinguish themselves from Mer, the Ohmes usually paint their faces with 'catlike' war paint.

The Ohmes were a common sight across Tamriel before the end of the 4th century of the 3rd Era. After this time period, they became a rare sight outside of Elsweyr" - From elder scrolls wikia.



Bethesda why are there no Ohmes? They're suppose to be common during the pre-4th century of 3rd era. Will ohmes become a playable race or will there be lore introduced to explain why we've never seen a single one?

    In fanlore. Literally.

    *insert deal-with-it meme here*

    Okay to be more precise, folklore about Ohmes was just a way to explain the appearance of the khajiit in TES:Arena, instead of retcon it.

    Besides, Ohmes are not a big deal, they're indistinguishable from bosmer ...So there may be some bosmers here and there who are in fact...khajiits...on the "mer" side of the species continuum ;)
    I saw one NPC with face tatoo living among khajiit somewhere in the game.
    Wether they are true khajiit under moon effect, or (stable) hybrids, or even adopted bosmer, it's still all a matter of interpretation then.

    I would also like to see more Khajiiti variants. I'm fine if they're not playable, but when all they have to do to include them as NPCs is use a housecat model with dialog or make a smaller Bosmer model I don't understand why they haven't already.

    Unless they tell me there was a dragonbreak that caused the existence of all other khajiit forms to be forgotten / disappear then I'm going to be extremely triggered.

    for me rp and lore are intertwined, and in ESO ya kinda have to use the former to make up for the uncooked hash that is the latter.

    They really haven't done justice to the Khajiiti diversity and lore in any game so far. The mane has hair reaching all the way to the ground if taken literally, and
    there can only be one mane alive at a time, meaning that what we see in the dominion quest line is in direct conflict with the lore. After all, who is born a mane gets determined by the moon at birth so a ritual can't fix that retroactively.

    Like with so many other things, ESO bent the lore to make it work as a game. Adding more Khajiiti subspecies is a lot of effort for little reward. It would be difficult to do them justice without overrepresenting Khajiit in the game, specifically the Dominion quests. Perhaps with a future expansion this can be fixed, which is why I am glad Elswyer was not included in the original Alliance zones (apart from Reaper's March and Khenarti's roost).
    This Bosmer was tortured to death. There is nothing left to be done.

    It does not seem like a lot of effort at all particularly when adjusting some art assets is all it requires. The Argonians have Naga and those Giant subspecies and it would like to see more of the strange variants. It does not have to be a player-variant although that would be interesting as well. In fact I would love to play as the tall and thin fishfaced Naga subspecies of Argonian. The same is true of Khajiit. It would be nice to see the big Hulking Khajiit brutes as a guard here in there. It would be nice to see a housecat sized Khajiit with quest dialogue. It would be nice to see the more elflike Khajiit as well. It really doesn't seem me to be that hard just to add it in either going forward like they've done with Argonians or even retouching older npc's (probably when working other new quests).

    They will probably diversify the Khajiit in an Elsweyr expansion similarly to how they diversified the Dunmer in the "Morrowind" (Vvardenfell) expansion. Most of the base races are lacking, but that is to be expected when you have to touch on each one for the base game's release.

    You'd want those tied into proper quests though, with lore weaved into them. I imagine that is actually pretty challenging, especially since ESO would be the first game to realize these ideas. You are right though, I forgot about the Argonian Behemoths we see here and there. Maybe there is hope yet.
    As a side note, has any game acknowledged that Argonians sometimes change sex in the middle of their lives? I mean other than through books.

    We cannot assume some bosmer are actually ohmes, they're two different races and ohmes have pointy ears. We could make the argument that Ohme have become so interacially breeded that they're no longer distinct, but that's out the window because we're in the 2nd era and they had plenty of ohme in the third.


    Really this is a huge oversight by Zenimax. Shamefully untrue the story.
    But there're not in actual ESO game yet.

    In spite of the lore each TES game has only had 1 breed of khajiit in it, and they've always justified it with "this one is most common at this time/in this place". Which kind-of worked for Daggerfall, Morrowind, Oblivion (less so IMO due to being adjacent to Elsweyr) and Skyrim where we're restricted to 1 province and khajiit of any kind are relatively rare.

    It doesn't really work for Arena or ESO where we go all over, including into part of Elsyweyr. If I remember correctly in Arena they hadn't fully developed the concept of the khajiit yet, they were literally elves who claimed to be descended from jungle cats and painted their faces to look like their ancestors. The different breeds, and most of them actually looking like cats, was a retcon. (Although the reverse may also be true - they lacked the capacity to make entirely separate models for khajiit so they made up an excuse for the 'cat people' to look human.)

    I'd love to see all the breeds represented in a game, but I suspect it'd have to be set in Elsyweyr to justify the effort involved.

    1) The ohme are a different race/breed of Khajiit born under a different lunar phase.

    2) Ohme look like bosmer but are not bosmer, they distinct themselves by typically wearing face paint.

    3) Not sure what you're trying to say.



    I don't think our definition of lore is the same. Fan lore is lore created by the fans. Ohmes were in arena, they were apparently more populated before the third era, and after the fourth century of the third era they aren't seen much outside of elswhere.

Point is, if these Mer like Khajiit were raised within the boundaries of Elsweyr, they too would speak as other Khajiit, "This One"s and all. So it wouldn't be right to just retexture a Bosmer and keep their Bosmer voice actor accents.

    Sorry I wasn't clear, I want the ohmes to sound like khajiit. I am suggesting a few of the current Khajiit NPC's get changed into Ohmes but keep their current khajiit dialogue and accent.

    I think it would be easy and effective to do this by using bosmer models but with cat-marking tattoo's. The existing khajiit body markings may even be usable, so it is a really low-effort way to add the appearance of another sub-race to a world that is meant to be vast and varied. Selling the Ohmes tatoos in the Crown store would give roleplayers a whole new race to play with.

    nevermind, notimetocare and Danikat have answered already

    EDIT:
    I suspect ZOS to have at least some plans for the so-called khajiit furstocks / morphs. Maybe not exactly the "established" (fanbase) lore though but that would be interesting anyway.
    I've seen at least one entry of the word "Tojay" from the NPC in MoL raid, where she seems to refer to as a stage of the moons as she's telling she will come back to Elsweyr warm coast to rest, then
    (not sure of the original text, as long as I play in french client) soon she'll swim into warm seas and sing the kha'jay sahaalas under the "moons of Tojay". Maybe a hint on the Tojay and Tojay-raht forms

    Then there are Legend illustrations too (maybe not gospel icons either, but I like the realistic way it goes)

    They really haven't done justice to the Khajiiti diversity and lore in any game so far. The mane has hair reaching all the way to the ground if taken literally, and
    there can only be one mane alive at a time, meaning that what we see in the dominion quest line is in direct conflict with the lore. After all, who is born a mane gets determined by the moon at birth so a ritual can't fix that retroactively.

    Like with so many other things, ESO bent the lore to make it work as a game. Adding more Khajiiti subspecies is a lot of effort for little reward. It would be difficult to do them justice without overrepresenting Khajiit in the game, specifically the Dominion quests. Perhaps with a future expansion this can be fixed, which is why I am glad Elswyer was not included in the original Alliance zones (apart from Reaper's March and Khenarti's roost).
    Don't see the issue with the Mane, it can just be one Mane as its an unique title like king or president in a country.
    its one requirement, that you are born under an special and rare star sign, this makes you an mane candidate just as being children of an king make you an heir to the throne. The hair is actually hair from other Khajiit in tribe, that would be an bit unpractical with all the Khajiit in tamriel so its symbolic nowday.

    Now all the wild sence around make less sense. Some places like on Khenarti's roost and some delves in Reaper's March you have sence together with other Khajiit All the places they are used for general predators does not.

    Yes, more Khajiit types would be fun, Ohmes-raht would be an fun one and easy to make.
    Grinding just make you go in circles.
    Asking ZoS for nerfs is as stupid as asking for close air support from the death star.

    1) The ohme are a different race/breed of Khajiit born under a different lunar phase.

    2) Ohme look like bosmer but are not bosmer, they distinct themselves by typically wearing face paint.

    3) Not sure what you're trying to say.



    I don't think our definition of lore is the same. Fan lore is lore created by the fans. Ohmes were in arena, they were apparently more populated before the third era, and after the fourth century of the third era they aren't seen much outside of elswhere.

    That's actual lore, not fan lore.
    Okay, you haven't got the point, I'll write it otherwise:
    1) Source?
    2) Source?
    3) Just saying And I can't see how you can be so affirmative. You are just willing to believe there... I suspect you take wikia information for gospel. Let's check the (in-universe) sources of this.

    nevermind, notimetocare and Danikat have answered already

    EDIT:
    I suspect ZOS to have at least some plans for the so-called khajiit furstocks / morphs. Maybe not exactly the "established" (fanbase) lore though but that would be interesting anyway.
    I've seen at least one entry of the word "Tojay" from the NPC in MoL raid, where she seems to refer to as a stage of the moons as she's telling she will come back to Elsweyr warm coast to rest, then
    (not sure of the original text, as long as I play in french client) soon she'll swim into warm seas and sing the kha'jay sahaalas under the "moons of Tojay". Maybe a hint on the Tojay and Tojay-raht forms

    Then there are Legend illustrations too (maybe not gospel icons either, but I like the realistic way it goes)

    Don't pretend you misunderstood my point OtarTheMad :p
    Wikias are basically sites where in-universe folklore is displayed, nothing less nothing more.

    In this case the sources are mainly Imperial (PGE). Here is an in-game source (from altmer bias) http://en.uesp.net/wiki/Lore:Moon_Worship_among_the_Cat-Men
    There's hardly any reference about khajiit furstocks in the actual game yet.

    "The Ohmes is the most Mer-like Khajiit. They are shorter than a Bosmer and have similar pointed ears. Unlike other Khajiit they have no fur, no tail, and no naturally occurring distinguishable Khajiit feature. To distinguish themselves from Mer, the Ohmes usually paint their faces with 'catlike' war paint.

    The Ohmes were a common sight across Tamriel before the end of the 4th century of the 3rd Era. After this time period, they became a rare sight outside of Elsweyr" - From elder scrolls wikia.



    Bethesda why are there no Ohmes? They're suppose to be common during the pre-4th century of 3rd era. Will ohmes become a playable race or will there be lore introduced to explain why we've never seen a single one?

    Im actually curious how ESO is going to handle going deeper into Elyswyr. As there would need to be an explanation why we have not seen the various Khajiit-folk that we have been told through lore exist, and explains the varied appearances of Khajiit over time. Yet has not been seen through out the Aldmeri Dominion or the part of Elyswyr we have access to right now.

    I personally think Bethesda would of faired better in all of this if they never addressed the differences in Khajiit appearances and treated it as them simply improving the cat-folks appearance through improved graphics.

    @Korah_Eaglecry This doesn't really solve the problem for ESO, but we have seen multiple furstocks in one place in the Keyes books (naturally, where no one had to make a model for any of them). One of the minor characters is an Ohmes and she introduces some of the other variants (including one of the mounts) as relatives.

    Will the Ohmes and Ohmes rahts make an appearance in Dragonhold?

    Are there any other Khajiiti furstocks that were missing from Elsweyr? I remember seeing many different breeds there.
