A Photo Tour of my Frostvault Chasm - "The Lost Arcanex"

Hey, everyone! I've been spending my down time working on Frostvault, and I'm finally ready to share my work! I try to keep my homes as immersive and thematic as possible, which is part of the reason why I struggled with Frostvault for so long. The Dwemer theme is challenging. I also had to find the right story for the home, and now I've finally found it.

I don't have any experience with making videos, but I can offer you a photo tour to try and share that story with you.

"The Lost Arcanex" is an isolated Dwemer habitation located deep in the Giant's Run mountains, far from any known Dwemer cities. The only known entrance is a lone, nondescript elevator hidden among the frigid peaks. Let's pull the lever and see what we find, shall we?

Curious machinery occupies the central platforms.

Perhaps the machine is some kind of teleportation or portal device? Calibrated using the various sequence plaques?

It seems this unlucky adventurer will never find out. Classic Dwemer trap!

One imagines the giant forge doubles as a heating system, yes?

Dwemer alchemical garden. Perhaps also a food source?

A cozy dining/cooking room, complete with an oven to bake mushrooms in!

What's this? Perhaps a maintenance shaft?

It is not uncommon for vampires to make their lairs in hidden Dwemer ruins. Such places often offer both ideal security.

Let's head to the upper level!

Another baffling device. Perhaps a remote viewing apparatus of some form.

It's quite entrancing.
