Years ago Sega Dreamcast came out with "Typing of the Dead". I came up with an absurd idea. I don't know if I was drunk or exausted or under medication when I came up with the idea but it entertained me throughout a dull work day.
A mod for oblivion that in essence turns Oblivion into a "Typing of the dead" parody. With project Gutenberg's immense public domain library tons of books could be used to fill in typing requirements.
Somehow I imagine combat chooses text content based on the type of weapon you use. Standard edge weapons would use "King author" books, Bash weapons "Conan the barbarian" and for magic "H.P. Lovecraft".
Instead of a modern typewriter and dreamcast the new models would feature and old 1930's typewriter and a backpack that looks like a book shelf. A shelf that gets more books as you cary more weapons.
Instead of finding weapons you find books. Classic titles and more to inspire "young readers" to be curious.
It's just an wild unkempt idea. I doubt it could be made into an actual functional mod. I just thought I would share my absurdity with you guys.
That's it. Let your imaginations go wild.
