The Order of the Virtuous Blood: Darkness Eternal (working title)

OVBNewTitleSymbol_zps055e32ee.jpg

(WIP Symbol, Modified in-game screenshot)

It has been 30 years since the sack of the Imperial City and the Fall of White-Gold Tower. During the sack of the city many atrocities were committed. Hundreds were slaughtered during the fall, men, women, and children. What history has not remembered is the fall of the Guild of Vampire Hunters...The Order of the Virtuous Blood. Now after 30 years of the Darkness running wild,  we the descendents of the Order seek to rebuild...are you with us?

- Ronald Jenseric

 

Requirements (subject to change)

The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim with the latest patch (1.9)

Modders Resource Pack (CORE) http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/16525//?

Griffon Fortress Resource  http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/41036//?

 

DOES NOT AND WILL NOT REQUIRE DAWNGUARD!!!

 

What this Mod is about

This mod is the work of fiction, it is not canon lore and is made purely for fun and nonprofit. This mod is meant to show the evolution of a faction present in The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion in a lore-friendly way and how it ties in with Skyrim's timeline. This mod is meant as a homage to the default faction in Oblivion and what this mod: Vampire Hunting- Order of the Virtuous Blood http://oblivion.nexusmods.com/mods/30568//? : did to enhance the default faction and make it ts own guild questline. That...and My Weapon Wall inspired me (check the links at the bottom)

 

Outline for the Mod (without spoiling it) (subject to change)

- Four Quests

- Continuous Misc Quest

- Four New NPCs (three voiced, one not), (that are key characters to the story, random enemies etc are included)

- Three New Locations

- New Books

- New cloak (permission pending)

- Special Weapons (if author of True Death http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/23890//? agrees)

- New Gear, with unique (or rare in vanilla) enchantments

 

Assistance

- I need volunteers with voice acting, a male and a female. Pm me if interested and I'll get you some test dialogue

- I need some advice in regards to potentially script or a scriptor who wants to help with this project.

- Pretty much if you want to help with quest building, script etc give me a PM or post here (or both)

- YOU! (points at person reading this topic) yes i need you, people who download mods to show interest and keep me in line.

 

Proof of Concept (and work being done)

-Have had this idea for a month, now I'm between semesters (as of yesterday)..its implication time!

Most of the items are now complete or nearing completion. Still working on the wooden stake model and its script. However hopefully later today or tomorrow I'll have some screenshots of the NPCs. which is when I'll post parts of their backstories on this thread.

Okay, so the script for the stake is kicking my butt...so it'll take a bit longer. Also I can't seem to get the main npc's faces the way I want them, so I'll have to add those screenshots later, however the back story for these npc is here:

 

Ronald Jenseric: is the great-great-great grandson of the OVB leader and one of the founding members, Roland Jenseric. At the time of the Siege of the Imperial City, he was just a boy of 10, and his parents offered to assist the 8th Legion in their rearguard action for taking their son to safety when Emperor Mede broke out. Because of this, when the Aldmeri Dominion took the city, the Jenseric family was put to the sword. When he was older he joined the legion and stayed for a few tours..gaining combat and leadership skills. After leaving the legion, Ronald made his way to the more "wild" areas of Tamriel and did freelance adventuring. While he was freelancing he noticed a rise in the organization of the vampire covens he encountered from time to time, which troubled him and let to his goal to restore his family's legacy, The Order of the Virtuous Blood.

 

Gillien Norvalo: is the great-great-great granddaughter of and original member of the OVB, Gilen Norvalo. Her story is the same as Ronald's. Both were taken by Emperor Mede when he broke his way out of the Imperial City, and both had their families executed by the Aldmeri Dominion. Because of their shared experience she has been with Ronald since. While  Ronald served as a legionnaire, Gillien served as an Imperial Mage/Healer in the same legion. She adventured with him and chose to help him rebuild their families work. The Order of the Virtuous Blood.

 

Grey-Throat the Younger:is the great-great grandson of original OVB member, Grey-Throat. Following the events that led the OVB to expand, Grey-Throat began to develop health problems, and was highly encouraged to return to his native Black Marsh to heal. He grew to and old age and passed peacefully...but not before he had enlisted his family to the OVB cause. When the Younger was born he resembled his great-great grandfather down to the shade of grey of his scales. However as the boy grew, he was very different from his bookish relative. Younger didn't want to research and spend his time in the library, he wanted to be a vampire hunter and slay those beasts himself. He was quite proficient...yet as he acquired more and more vampire dust he grew more and more prideful and that pride turned to arrogance. Because of this, he grew careless on a hunt in Skyrim and was beset on all sides by vampires. He was pinned down and one vampire bit into his throat severing his vocal cords and rendering him mute for the rest of his life. the younger only lived due to the timely intervention of an adventuring party...Ronald Jenseric and Gillien Norvalo. Upon learning their goal, he volunteered to join them in rebuilding the OVB...though his ordeal shook him up enough to retire from the hunting himself and focus on research as his great-great grandfather did.

Very nice! :D  Already on my bookmarks bar... :)   Also, regarding the female voice acting, what type of 'character voice' are you looking for?

@ thenobody0:  thanks!  I'm glad more people seem to be noticing.

 

@ Neetra: I'm looking for a female voice that...keeps a generally girly/innocent tone but with an underlying tone that betrays her experience and sorrow. She and Ronald have seen some sh**

 

and thanks for bookmarking!
