So I was bouncin' around Summerset today with my High-Elf Sorc, Eraelya, just making sure I had all of the wayshrines unlocked.
The last one was the northern-most, Veyonder Wyte.
(I figured I could probably get there kinda direct-like by going through the dungeon that is up in the northwestern area of the map, but I decided to try to take the scenic-route and get there from the east, instead.)
Anyway, as I was scrambling around in the northern wilderness, I stumbled upon a little camp somewhere in the vicinity of the wayshrine and found within the corpse of a dude with a letter to his... bethrothed?... next to his head.
In addition to his words to her was the implied hope that whoever found him would deliver the letter and a pendant to her in Lillandril.
To cut the story short, I found her. But in the course of the conversation, she popped-off with a comment directed at Eraelya, dripping with the typical snooty, high-falutin' attitude for which the Altmer are known. apparently even when talking to their own kind.
Well, Eraelya suddenly realized that she was absolutely done with her stuffy brethren, and she decided to turn to the Dark Side.
She traded-in her nicely-dyed (with one of the new Crown Store Autumn dyes, 'Blue Morndas') 'Holiday in Balmora' costume and the new Psijic Charger mount, for the Glenmoril Witch Robes, dyed with the Halloween dye, 'Darkness Ever Weaves,'
and the Zombie Horse.
Oh, and she sought-out a certain shrine and devoted herself to the Blood Matron, Lamae Bal.
And she's moving to a nice little cottage in the Hag Fen once the Witches' Festival is upon us.
(and as further insult to, and repudiation of, her self-aggrandizing kindred, she's kinda sorta thinkin' of turning the Psijic Villa into a huge haunted house, as time and resources permit.)
Currently working on a BG build site, so I broke my five character max rule and rolled some alts for the purposes of having a mag and stam version of each class.
They all match their mounts and pets, of course.
Got this mount randomly while trying to rack up enough gems for the demon rooster, and designed a whole freaking character around it. I couldn’t justify the up front crown cost when it first became available, but since I got it from a pack of four crates randomly, I thought “why not?” Celestial Violet pairs nicely with it.
CUTE LIL BOSMER WOLF. This is technically a placeholder until I get my Indrik. Colours will be tweaked and pet will be swapped out when I have enough feathers.
This will also change when I get my Indrik. The character looks better with the imperial horse and the wolf pet, but I can’t exactly have two characters sharing the same pet, can I? Of course not.
FUN FACT: when you pair that fiery crown store skin with the heavy Outlaw helm, your character’s eyes turn a solid yellow instead of orange. Best bug ever!
I also gave some old characters a face lift.
A frosty mount for a magicka warden! I’m not happy with the pet, though... maybe the new snowy gryphon is a better match?
I hate that Magnus Setting Red looks kind of pinkish in the character selection screen, but it matches the mount well in game. ALSO, THE DEMON ROOSTER’S GLOWING RED-PINK EYES MATCH THE PINK EFFECTS ON SEVERAL MAGNB SKILLS SO PERFECTLY, IT MAKES MY OCD TINGLE.
