    I will be buying this but I have one nitpick.

    "If you're the kind of alchemist who specializes in venoms and poison-making, you'll invest in special protective garb to keep from being poisoned by your own experiments—or else! And if your clients are just a little bit intimidated by your creepy attire, all the better."

    Why are the gloves fingerless? Won't the poisons seep in through the exposed skin while working with them?

    Ha! Didn't even notice that! A bit of an oversight!

    A laugh a day keeps the Crown Crates away! :
    A Khajiit and a Wood Elf Walk up to a market stall.

    The Khajiit whisks three rabbit pasties into his pocket with lightning speed.
    The baker doesn't notice.

    The Khajiit says to the Wood Elf:
    "You see how clever this one is? You will never beat that!"

    The Wood Elf says to the Khajiit:
    "Watch this, a Wood Elf is always cleverer than a Khajiit."

    He then says to the baker,
    "Give me a rabbit pasty, I can show you a magic trick!"

    The baker gives him the pasty which the Wood Elf promptly eats.
    Then he says to the baker:
    "Give me another pasty for my magic trick."

    The baker is getting suspicious but he gives it to him. He eats this one too.

    Then he says again:
    "Give me one more pasty... "

    The baker is getting angry now but gives him one anyway. The Wood Elf eats this one too.

    Now the baker is really mad, and he yells:
    "And where is your famous magic trick?"

    The Wood Elf says:
    "Look in the Khajiit's pocket!"

    Yes I had a laugh. It's funny they leave uncovered the most important part of your body to cover up. Doubly-so with the blurb they added. Oh dear...

    I think that is supposed to be the "Bosmer High" outfit, so 1000 if it follows the other racial outfits pricing model.
    Just so that everyone knows, my Altmer still can't have black hair. About a dozen of Altmer NPCs in the game have black hair. Just saying.

    Meet my characters:
    Command: Do the thing.

    Zadarri, Khajiit Fist of Thalmor: The thing was done, as commanded.
    Durza gra-Maghul, Orc blacksmith: The thing was done perfectly, in the most efficient way.
    Tegwen, Bosmer troublemaker: You can't prove I didn't do the thing.
    Sings-Many-Songs, Argonian fisher: Sure, I'll do the thing... Eventually. Maybe.
    Aerindel, Altmer stormcaller: After extensive research, I've come to the conclusion that doing the thing would be a waste of resources.
    Liliel, Dunmer pyromancer: Aerindel said I shouldn't do the thing. Something about "resources".
    Gyda Snowcaller, Nord cryomancer: I will find a way to do it that won't waste resources and make Aerindel proud of me.
    Beatrice Leoriane, Breton vampire: I persuaded someone else into doing the thing. You are welcome, dear.
    Sahima, Redguard performer: Doing the thing sounds awfully unpleasant and really not my problem.
    Ellaria Valerius, Imperial priestess: I'll pray to the Eight for the thing to be done, if it is Their will.

    Just please don't make the wolf mount 4k

    Don't worry, I think it'll be 2500 or less, it's not shiny and glittering and doesn't have a cool summoning animation. And after the S**t storm that happened with the Dro-m’Athra Senche, I think they get the picture.

    I'm glad they made that 4k and only available a short period. It is the ugliest mount out there and a true eyesore in Cyrodiil. At least there aren't that many. They have some blue *** leakage spewing behind them as they run. At least the owner doesn't have to see how ridiculous they look since they can't run behind themselves.

    I just hope they fixed the female chest area with the Treethane Ceremonial Dress before they release it. Yes I submitted a bug when it first hit the PTS weeks ago and it's still messed up. It is a nice costume except for the boob issue. :)

    Sounds like you might be a bit jealous? :D

    "This upgrade unlocks an additional Character Slot, which will appear on the Login screen below the slots for your current characters."

    YES!! Thanks for the clarification!

    I have some lore-related questions about the Nixad, if someone doesn't mind to answer. Are these creatures intelligent? On the PTS, I saw that they often act on ways that seem to indicate they are, like when wild ones fly to us and laugh. Do they understand Tamrielic language? And I often saw them around runes, Nirnroot and Minotaur camps. Are they attracted to magic? I'm asking for RP reasons, because they look like the perfect companion for my mage character.

    Also, I said that before, but the Wolf looks amazing. A really great model. Great outfits, too, and the Lynx is really adorable. Great job on these too.

    I guess it is a safe bet to assume that Nixads are Faeries.

    If you then consider abandoned game files to be a legitimate epistemological access to the world of Tamriel (which I do), then it appears that all or some Faeries are intelligent enough to have their own language and that the said language can be learnt by members of other races. Whether or not they understand other Tamriellic languages, is not known yet.

    For further information about the intelligence of Faerie, their connection to magicka, and their possible hierarchy, you can also read this book from TES II. :smile:

    If on the contrary, you consider that the -ad suffix, which in real world is used to name kinds of nymphs, is a clue that we should consider the Nixads to be a kind of Nymphs also in the universe of TES, then similarly, Nymphs are intelligent, have their own language (which bears similarities with both the Ayleidoon and the Faerian), and it is possible for a member of another race to learn their language. However, considering how far Nixads are from previous depictions of Nymphs, I personnally prefer to consider it as a Faerie.

    Thanks a bunch! I only played Morrowind and forwards, unfortunately, and I'm always happy to learn more!

    This is great. It is my headcanon for Nixads until proven otherwise. I hope ZOS has a lore article on the Gold Coast creatures planned to be released.

    You're welcome. :-) I also discovered the series with Morrowind, but I spent some time lurking on the UESP, so I discovered a bit of the Daggerfall lore. :smile: - by the way, I added a comment about Nymphs in my answer.

    I couldn't agree more about the lore article. I think they should bring the Loremaster's archive back - I hope they will. :tongue: I had prepared five (big) questions about Minotaurs and one about Selkies. And I guess one could find more about Nixads.

    Edit : Oh and now I have one more question about Selkies. :/
