"Many years ago, Dorgas served no one. A lone necromancer, he practiced his ways deep into Mordor. When Sauron discovered Dorgas, he wanted him destroyed. Dorgas retaliated. In a desperate attempt, Dorgas created a fire-drake which wiped out Sauron's minions. Infuriated, Sauron marched forth himself. After an epic battle of magic and steel, Sauron emerged victorious. But instead of killing his adversary, he offered Dorgas a deal. And in his weakest moment... Dorgas accepted." - Gandalf the Grey

"Black Magic" is a Middle Earth-themed, cinematic series created utilizing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Revolving around an elf by the name of Calacil and the always comforting Gandalf the Grey, "Black Magic" features many iconic Middle Earth characters, locations, etc. while also having a fresh blend of new things being introduced. Each episode usually takes several months of recording, editing, voice acting, and various other tasks before it gets released. Think TV show, only on YouTube.

I am constantly needing new people to fill new roles, so don't fret if you don't have any particular expertise! Voice actors, modders, and people just looking to give feedback are always appreciated. If you are interested in doing a little voice acting for some new characters or like to create a mod that would be seen in my episodes, please comment below or personally message me. Help of any kind is appreciated, even if you're just interested in critiquing! 

 

If you like what I do, don't hesitate to 'subscribe' to my channels and/or 'like' my videos! I'm always learning and growing, so expect to see these videos keep getting better and better. I really enjoy doing this and I hope it shows.

"Moria... You fear to go into those mines. The dwarves delved too greedily and too deep. You know what they awoke in the darkness of Khazud-dum... Shadow and Flame" - Saruman the Wise

 

 

Hello all! This is the first of (hopefully) many monthly updates. Due to the fact that episodes are few and far between, hopefully giving you all updates once a month will help the time go by faster. Now obviously I will be talking to those who comment and answering what questions I can, but this will provide a way for me to show that I'm actually working and not just lolly-gagging. So without further ado, on to the Monthly Update!

DWARVEN STEEL

 

Due to the generosity of two modders who are not on the Nexus, I have received exclusive access to a few Middle-Earth related mods. Take a look at some of the screenshots below:

Balrog_zps51ea2347.png

 

The weapons, created by Vladimirov, have been seen throughout the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit series. The Balrog was provided by dogtown1, author of the infamous SkyMoMod. All the content shown is already planned to be shown in Black Magic as is some other content I can't share with you just yet. Both authors provided more than what is shown, but that's for another update  :wink: Check the end of this update for links to their mods.

 

WELCOME, HALLGARTH!

 

To step away from the modding aspect, I would like to welcome another voice actor, Hallgarth, to the team! Hallgarth auditioned for a yet-to-be-announced role and I was more than satisfied with the result. He now joins the ranks of several other acclaimed voice actors of Skyrim Nexus. Welcome Hallgarth! Several other voice actors are also auditioning to become a part of the team, so don't be surprised to see the names keep coming.

THE TEAM

 

Added to the OP is a new banner titled "The Team." Here you will find the list of team members and those who have contributed to Black Magic. Some of the names may jump off the page and I would like to thank every single one of them for making Black Magic what it is.

 

This concludes the first monthly update. I realize it's a little short, but I hope that this can hold you guys over. Next month is where things get real interesting. Stay tuned!

Those are some nice looking weapons and Balrog. The mod is slowly starting to come together.  :smile:

Hallgarth, you should know better! :P It's not a mod, it's a video series. Like Skyrim Machinimas. 

 

Thanks for the compliments though!

ThranduilsSword_zpsd877ea16.png

 

 "The wood elves of Mirkwood are not like their kin. They are less wise... And more dangerous." - Beorn the Shapeshifter

 

Last month, I shared a tidbit of the gigantic Moria and some of the dwarven weapons that came with it. This month, we venture to the complete opposite end of the spectrum: elves. Not the friendly Elrond that inhabits Rivendell nor the elegant Lady Galadriel who rules over Lothlorien. No, this update is dedicated to the almost-hostile elves that are found in Mirkwood.

 

KING OF THE WOODLAND REALM

 

Sometimes referred to as the "prettiest king in Middle-Earth" by his raving fans, Thranduil rules over his kingdom with surety. Unaffected by the fates of other lands, he seeks what is best for his kingdom even if it means turning his back on another. Some deem his actions wise while others label him a coward. Whatever your stance on the elven king, I believe we can all appreciate the brilliant work KnErBSE73 has done thus far. He is currently working on creating Thranduil's robes and sword and has done a tremendous job already. Take a look at some of the screenshots he's provided below. He's still scratching the surface with the robes but the sword is all but completed.

PROTECTORS OF THE WEAK

 

I shouldn't say that any elf is "weak", but there are those that risk their immortality to fight for their homeland. For Thranduil's kingdom, this happens to be the Mirkwood Warriors. Seen in the introduction of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, these elves were seen for a very brief moment, accompanied by their king, Thranduil. Luddemann, one of the team's modelers, has created the helmet worn by the Mirkwood Warriors. The following pictures are WIP and finished shots of the helmet, which look fantastic. Luddemann is also a part of the Credo team, be sure to check that out as well!

PROTECTORS OF THE PALACE

 

While the Mirkwood Warriors serve as a standing militia, there are the Mirkwood Palace Guards who stay back and protect the kingdom. Seen several times in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, these elves are the king's personal bodyguards. Constantly they stand watch, stiff as a statue. Enpremi, another one of the team's modelers, is working on creating this armor. Enpremi has created great armors in the past, namely the Galadhrim armor seen in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (link below). So far he has come up with a spear and a shield, though more is on the way. 

 

The first picture is the original armor design, while the following two are what Enpremi has created so far.

This concludes the monthly update, I hope you all enjoyed and please stay tuned! There's still a lot of exciting things to come for all the fans! Everything seen in these monthly updates will in fact be integrated into the series, even if you don't know how just yet  :wink:

Brilliant. Looks like a ton of work is going into this to make it as perfect as it can be.
