I'm sorry to say this project has been discontinued.  Massive thanks to all of you who took the time to follow, comment, and contribute to the project.

In the year 4E 191 an Imperial fleet undertook a purge of the apocolyptic sect known as The Elver of Zir.  Faced with the encroaching legion, the cultists, led by their zealous prophetess Caeto, leapt to their deaths from the rocks surrounding the infamous whirpool Zir's Gullet

Now, on the tenth anniversary of the purge, tidal waves ravage coastal villages, mighty storms lay waste to entire fleets, and the very ocean appears to be waging war upon the land.  Could the Elvers of Zir be carrying out their apocolyptic mission from beyond the grave? 

Kaestor Ciralius commanded that Imperial force a decade ago.  The commander and his eclectic troupe of loyal irregulars intend to return to the site of that fateful massacre and uncover the truth behind this rising threat.
  Little do they relalise just how far their journey will take them..

Into the Abyss...

 

Padomaic Abyss is my major project for the next 8 months.  Despite several warnings by far more savvy people than me, my heart is set on creating a proffesional quality Skyrim modification for my 3rd year university project.   I  can't wait to see how far this project can go.
 

The mod scope consists of several new environments, a couple of new weapons, two new armour sets, and a bunch of lore and dialouge.  Voice work will have to wait till after the course is finished unless things go amazingly smoothly :wink:  I'm also going to document the process as I go, and will attempt to provide the assets as modder resources wherever possible.  It would be so great to have some input from the Nexus community as the project unfolds. I haven't modded for a while and I miss this place!

 

To kick us off, here's some concept art done by Chris Stone, a very talented coursemate of mine:

Looks like this could (potentailly) rival official DLC, from the concept art and from the summary, it seems like its already a better plot than DG or DB, looking forward to it :)

I'm in love with the plot; it sounds like a project I'd really have fun with. If you need a talented writer to craft your storyline/ quests, just let me know.

Thanks for the support guys! I'll pass on your compliments to artist.

mlee3141, Writing for the project will begin in the new year (after the bulk of the modelling).  We'll get in touch then to check whether you're still available!

Ooh, this sounds awesome! I know it's a long ways off, but count me in as a potential VA. If need be, I'd also be happy to clean/edit/master recorded dialogue from other VAs, as well. :) 

 

Here's a recent demo reel consisting of a number of roles I've recorded for various mods.

 

I would also be open to the possibility of composing a soundtrack to accompany the mod, if that's something you'd be interested in. This project has a very unique premise, and I imagine some new music would help further flesh out its atmosphere. I have a pretty full schedule, but I could certainly compose an appropriately sized soundtrack within the span of eight months. :D

 

Here are a couple samples of music I've composed for the 'Beyond Skyrim' project -- 

 

The Hand of Sheor

By Starlight's Guide

Since the project intake has utterly halted and been replaced by a 3am-8am slot at the news station, I'd love to offer teaser/other trailer work. Here's a thread about it.

 

Contact me on the email in the thread I linked if you're interested at all. I think with a lot more time and communication than my previous work we could end up with something widely appealing- but i'll save all that for if you're even interested.

 

Looking forward to this project either way. I'm digging these grand-but-achievable DLC-type mods coming around. Good luck!

Vulon, thanks for the offer! We were just sat around the computer passing the headphones and collectively oohing and ahhing at your compositions.  Really nice stuff!  We'd be very happy if you could compose a soundtrack for us.  Of course we'll contact you once the voice work begins too.  I'll send you a pm regarding the soundtrack this evening.

 

dwellufool, Really liked your work on The Vortex of Time teaser.  If you have any ideas regarding a teaser for this project we'd be very happy to hear them.  We're probably going to create a trailer once we have a few custom assets but if you'd like to trade ideas during the run up that's be great.
