Forever Darkness Ashes of Eris Launch
Welcome to the official public release of Forever Darkness - Ashes of Eris! This has been something I've worked on ever since the reveal of Dawnguard. I felt that Skyrim really needed EVIL vampires, and that Harkon himself...wasn't the most interesting of villains. So I dug into the lore and myths that Bethesda has made around vampires and decided to go all the way back to the beginning. I wanted to revisit one of the darkest and most vile parts of Elder Scrolls lore - the true beginning of vampires. Some are familar with Lamae and how she was brutally raped, tortured, and basically driven insane by the evil Molag Bal. I found this tragic beginning to vampires to be much more interesting then the willing lapdog that is Harkon. So, I wrote in a new character, the elder sister to Lamae Beolfag - Eris Beolfag. She becomes the first victim bitten by the now bestial and insane Lamae, taking all her power and whatever
remains of her now shattered mind and soul. Still, to get revenge on Molag Bal, she'll need more then the second-hand power given by a pure-blood vampire, no, she'll need something that will raise her and her future brethren above that of a daedric lord. One answer lies in the shadows of chaos and change itself...the other, lies with the blood of dragons...
Make sure to endorse if you like the project! I'm also looking to build a small team to REALLY expand this mod into bigger goals like custom castles/dwellings, scripted quests, custom dialogue (maybe even voiced), advanced companion scripts, and Blender/modeling help where my alpha transparencies can't quite fix something that needs to be removed. I'll be posting an official Nexus thread within the next couple of days, but you can also track my progress at my deviantart page, and the main place I test anything and everything - TESA.
Note: Armor designs will rely on permissions from original authors. All armors are mixes done in NifSkope and all texture work is done in Photoshop. Original authors will be throughly thanked in the description page with a lot more emphasis then just a line of text. (Think big, pretty graphics with big letters for the names...which you've already seen on this page - but better!) I'm sharing this mod because I want too, so while honest critiques are welcome, troll garbage will be ignored. Permissions will be explained upon release.
