Morrowind: Telvanni Hortator

I am now the Hortator of Hlaalu and Redoran Houses and only one more house to go to complete my Fourth Trial. So, I got a Brown Book which lists all the Councilors of Telvanni House. All the councilors were in high Telvanni towers located in various places like Tel Aruhn, Tel Vos, Tel Mora, Tel Branora and Tel Naga.

The councilors Mistress Therana, Master Neloth, Mistress Dratha and Mater Aryon simply accepted me as the Hortator of Telvanni House. I think they got very big things to do rather than hearing my Nerevarine story. I told by Aryon that Archmagister Gothren would delay my request indefinitely and so me told me to kill him.

I went and met Gothren and as expected he asked me some time to think about my request. When I ask him again and again, he told me the same thing. So, there is no other way than killing him. But there were two Daedra standing beside him. So, I am sure it would be impossible for me to kill him. But, I too have no other way. So, I started fighting him. I saved…

Morrowind: Hlaalu Hortator

Image
I got myself a copy of Yellow Book, which has a list of all the councilors of House Hlaalu. Then, I started visiting each one of them to get my approval to be Hortator of the great house Hlaalu.

First, I went to Hlaalu Canton in Vivec. There I met Uncle Crassius and told him my Nerevarine story. He asked me 1000 gold to get his approval. I gave him that money and I accepted to name me Hortator and he told me to go and speak to other councilors. He also told me that if I was able to find Dram Bero, who is having his invisible house somewhere in Vivec, then he will accept my request. Then he told me to speak to Orvas Dren and Velanda and Nevena will automatically accept my offer.

After searching the No Name Club, I went inside the Haunted Manor in St. Olms and found Dram Bero inside. He accepted me to be the Hlaalu Hortator.

I travelled to Dren Plantation and met Orvas Dren. I persuaded him and made him to tell Velanda and Nevena to accept my offer. Then, I visited them both and without an…

Morrowind: Redoran Hortator

Image
I went to Redoran Council in Ald'Ruhn. I spoke to Neminda and she gave me a copy of Red Book, which enlists all the councilors of House Redoran. Now, I must visit all of them and convince them to accept me as Redoran's Hortator.

First, I met Mistress Morvayn, persuaded her and placed my request. She told that she cant take decision herself and she would discuss with other councilors, before accepting me as Redoran Hortator. Then I spoke to Arobar, Llethri, Ramoran and they also told me the same thing as Morvayn said.


Redoran Council, Ald'ruhn

Then I spoke to Athyn Sarethi. He told me that his son, Varvur Sarethi was kidnapped by Venim and he wanted me to rescue him. If I done this errand, he will name me Redoran Hortator and I think other councilors will also be convinced. So, I went to Venim manor and searched for Varvur. There was a small room behind a curtain in the wall and Varvur Sarethi was hidden in it. I rescued him bravely and spoke to Athyn Sarethi. He was very hap…

Morrwind: Third Trial

Image
The third trial is to go the Cavern of the Incarnate and to get the Ring of Moon and Star. But the catch is all the details about that Cavern is hidden in a riddle, which goes as follows:

the eye of the needle in the teeth of the wind
the mouth of the cave lies in the skin of the pearl
the dream is the door and the star is the key

I spoke about this riddle to the ashlanders in the camp and found the following:
"The star is the Key" refers to the Azura's star which appears only in magical hour between day and night. This may mean that the door to the Cavern of the Incarnate will be open only during that time.

"the teeth of the wind" refers to the Airan's Teeth in the Valley of the wind, whose entrance is marked by two high rock spires.

With these assumptions, I went to the Airan's Teeth and found the Cavern of the Incarnate. But I cant get into the door. So, I waited till 6 AM and tried to go in. I went inside and saw Azura. She gave me the ring of Moon-and-Sta…

Morrowind: Warrior's Test to take up Third Trial

Image
I went to Urshilaku Camp and told Nibani Maesa about all the details of the lost
When asked about the Third Trial, Nibani Maesa told me about a Shrine to Azura called Cavern of the Incarnate and she told me to meet Sul-Matuul for more details.


Some screenshots inside Tomb of Dagoth Morin

Sul-Matuul warned me that the path of Incarnate is a very hard one and many tough people failed the warrior test in the the path of Incarnate. Then, he gave me instructions to complete the Warrior test and only if I completed this test successfully, then I will be briefed about the Third Trial.
I have to go to Kogoruhn, the ancient halls of the forgotten house and collect 3 tokens.

The first one is just a Corprus weeping from a Corprus beast.
The second one is a Cup with the mark of House Dagoth
Third one is a Shadow Shield, which lies in the tomb of Dagoth Morin, deep beneath the lava tunnels.


After some 5 minutes walk from Urshilaku Camp, I reached Kogoruhn. First, I started exploring the tomb of Dagoth Mor…

Morrowind: Dissident Priests and Lost Prophecies

Image
Then, I went to Vivec and searched for Mehra Milo and found a note addressed to Amaya in her room. The notes stated that she was locked up in Ministry of Truth and she wanted me to come there with two Divine Intervention scrolls for escape. Then, I levitated to Ministry of Truth and spoke to Alvela Saram, the Ordinator guarding entrance into Ministry of Truth. Mehra already spoke to Alvela and so she gave me the key to get into Ministry of Truth. with the key I went inside and started searching for Mehra. A guard saw me and started chasing me and I immediately casted my Moon Shadow power and became invisible. Again, I started my search and found the Mehra Milo in a Cell. Then, I gave her the Divine Intervention scroll I bought and she told me to meet her in the secret Dissident Priests monastry at Holamayan. Also, she told me how to come there and informed me that the entrance to the monastry will be opened only at the magical twilight hours sacred to Azura.


Ministry of Truth, Vivec

Morrowind: Corprus Disease and Second Trial

Image
To cure my Corprus Disease, I went to Tel Fyr and met the Telvanni wizard Divayth Fyr. I gave him the beautiful Dwemer artifact and he liked it. I spoke to him about the Cure for Corprus disease and he said that he tested so many cure potions on so many people and all of them are failed. Also, he had a new potion at that time and he wanted me to bring a Dwemer boots from his Corprusarium in exchange for the potion.


Corprusarium

I went into the Corprusarium and got the Dwemer boots from a half-human half-spider person named Yagrum Bagarn. Then I returned back and gave the boots to Divayth Fyr and he gave me the potion. It worked perfect and I got rid of the Corprus Disease. Also, I am now immune to this Corprus Disease and Blight Disease, which makes me pass the Second trial.

Now itself I am feeling godly inside:-) Soon I will finish the other trials and become the real Nerevarine.

Morrowind: Goodbye Caius Cosades

After passing the second trial, I went to Balmora and reported to Caius. He said that he was recalled to Imperial City and he made me an Operative in Blades ranking which means I am the Blades agent in Vvardenfell district. He told me to find the lost prophecies and deliver it to Nibani Maesa and continue my work on becoming the Nerevarine. He told me to approach Mehra Milo to get the lost prophecies. Then he left Vvardenfella and went to Imperial City...

Morrowind: Nerevarine Prophecies

I met Nibani Maesa to test myself against the Nerevarine Prophecies. She said there were 2 different Nerevarine Prophecies, The Stranger and The Seven Visions. She started reciting me the versus of the
prophecy, "Seven Visions of Seven Trials of the Incarnate". The versus goes as follows:
First Trial
On a certain day to uncertain parents.
Incarnate moon and star reborn.
Second Trial
Neither blight not age can harm him.
The Curse-of-Flesh before him flies.
Third Trial
In caverns dark Azura's eye sees
and makes to shine the moon and star.
Fourth Trial
A stranger's voice unites the Houses.
Three Halls call him Hortator.
Fifth Trial
A stranger's hand unites the Velothi.
Four Tribes call him Nerevarine.
Sixth Trial
He honors the blood of the tribe unmourned.
He eats the sin, and is reborn.
Seventh Trial
His mercy frees the cursed false gods,
Binds the broken, and redeems the mad.

Then she recited the versus of the prophecy, "The Stranger", which was:
When earth is sundered, and s…

Morrowind: Sixth House Base

Image
Caius told me that Fort Buckmoth Legion found a Sixth House Base and Sixth House Shrine and a Sixth House Priest named Dagoth Gares near Gnaar Mok. My order is to go that Sixth House Base and kill the priest Dagoth Gares.


Inside Ilunibi shrine

I found the Ilunibi shrine, the sixth house base near Gnaar Mok. It is a very vast base under the ground with so many undead creatures, daedra, atronaches, dreamers and much more. After more than an hour of hunting, I met the priest Dagoth Gares. He referred me as Lord Nerevar and he told me that I must accept the friend request of Dagoth Ur and join him and drive away the false gods from the land of Vvardenfell. He spoke enough and its time for some action. He was a little tough, but I killed him after a small tough fight. Then, I took a message of Dagoth Ur to me from the priest. My mission was over here, but I got the Corprus disease, which was said to be an unhealable disease.

After the Sixth House Base is cleared of creatures, I returned back …

Morrowind: Urshilaku Camp and Initiation Rite

Image
After a very long journey, I reached Urshilaku Camp. But, I remembered that I cant just enter into the Yurt of the leader. I need someone to sent me in there. SO, I spoke to an Ashlander in the camp and he
liked to have a Trama Root. I had one and gave it to him as a thoughtful gift. So, on my request, he sent me to meet the head of their Camp.

I met Sul-Matuul, the head of Urshilaku Ashlanders. I told him my story and that I needed to be tested against the Nerevarine Prophecies. But he told that only an Ashlander or the Clanfriend of them can be
tested for the prophecies. But I am an outlander. So, I told me to fetch the Sul-Senipul's Bonebiter Bow in the burial caverns of Sul-Senipul, the father of Sul-Matuul. If I get and return the bow to
Sul-Matuul then he will adopt me as a Clanfriend of Urshilaku Tribe. This act of bringing the bow is called as Initiation rite.

I searched for a while and found the burial grounds of Urshilaku. It was extremely large inside, with so many sub…

Morrowind: A Thoughtful Gift and a Big Surprise

Caius wanted me to meet Hassour Zainsubani, an Ashlander who left the wastes to become a wealthy trader in Ald'ruhn, to investigate about the Ashlanders. I went to Ald'ruhn and met Hassour. He told me about
the thoughtful gift, that is used to please any Ashlander and to gain their trust. Also, while speaking he mentions that he love poetry. So, I went to a nearby merchant and bought a copy of "Ashland Hymns".
Then, I presented that book to Hassour. He was very pleased and was ready to answer whatever I need to know.

Hassour said that no Ashlander would like a total stranger to enter their home. The stranger must present him a thoughtful gift or should me sent by some other Ashlander or else the Stranger must duel
the Ashlander and defeat him. Then, I asked more about the Ashlanders and Nerevarine Cult. He gave me some notes and I returned back to Balmora and reported to Caius.

Caius promoted me to Finder Rand and he showed me the decoded package that I delivered hi…

Morrowind: Cure for Boots of Blinding Speed

Morrowind: Vivec Informants

Caius wanted me to go to Vivec and collect information about the Nerevarine cult and Sixth House cult from three persons. They are Addhiranirr, Huleeya and Mehra Milo.

So, I went to Vivec and spoke with Huleeya first. She was in Black Shalk Cornerclub in the Foreign Quarters. Since some people were troubling her in the Cornerclub, I killed them and took her to
Jobasha's Rare Books, where she felt she was safe. There Huleeya gave small notes on Nerevarine Cult and its conflict with the Temple. But she don’t know anything about the Sixth House cult.

Then I went to the Temple in Vivec to find Mehra Milo and found her in the Hall of Wisdom. She says about the Nerevarine cult's claiming of Tribunal to be the false gods and the work of Dissident priests
name "Progress of Truth". She says that I must get a copy of that book and give it to Caius. Also she wanted me to inform Caius that she was being watched by the Ordinators and if something goes wrong she
will leave a mess…

Morrowind: An Airship to Soltheism

Image
While wandering through the Icy lands of Soltheism, I saw a broken airship near Hrothmund's Bane. I went near that ship and found that all the crew members were dead. This space ship reminded me of the quest given by Louis Beauchamp in Ald'ruhn. So, I searched all over the ship to check whether the crew found the Amulet of Infectious Charm. This is the amulet for which Louis Beauchamp sent his crew here. But all the crew members were dead including the Captain and so they failed Louis. After reading through the Airship Captain's Jouranl I understood that the crew members lost their minds and lives because of the heart piercing chillness of Soltheism.


Airship

I decided to search for this Amulet myself and searched the surrouding area. After a while, I found the entrance to Hrothmund's Barrow, where the Amulet of Infectious Charm is likely to be found. On trying to get in to the cave, I was stopped by the voice of Hrothmund's Bane and he asked me a name and showed me a…

Prince of Persia: Two Thrones

Prince of Persia is the third installment in the Prince of Persia series after Prince of Persia Warrior Within. I played both the Sands of Time and Warrior Within before, but missed out this. So, I started playing Two Thrones now. One thing is I am not going to write posts for this game as I did for Sands of Time. But, after finishing the game, I will write a post about the story of the whole Prince of Persia series.

The game picks up the story after Warrior within, in which the Prince killed Dhaka and changed the fate of both Kaileena and himself. After killing Dhaka, they leave the Island of Time and return to Babylon in search for a peaceful life. But their very first sight of Babylon was very worse. Babylon was burninng like hell and their boat was shot down by some Sand Monsters. Prince got separated from Kaileena and this is where the game starts...

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

I played Call of Duty 2 a year back and I love the game. Yesterday I got Call of Duty 4 from my friend. I started playing the game today morning. From the first mission, "Crew Expendable" itself, the game ROCKED. I loved all the missions and was so involved in the game and I forgot my lunch itself. AFter nearly 8 hours of playing I completed the game and was so upset with the size of the game. It is too small that I finished it in a single day.

I am not in a mood to post about my COD 4 gameplay, because I have so many games to complete before my semester leave ends. Also, in the next semester of my College, I have to concentrate on doing a project. Also, I have a BIG plan to develop a very BIG game for Image Cup Challenge of Microsoft. So, I wont be playing much on next Semester.

Now I am trying to get Call of Duty 6. Hope it will run on my PC...

Morrowind: A Terrible Place, I've Heard

Image
The only thing everyone says about Soltheism is "A Terrible Place, I've Heard". On Hearing the same thing from everyone, I was curious to go and check it out. Surely it it impossible for me to swim to Soltheism. So, I decided to take the only boat to Soltheism from Khuul. I went to Khull by boat from Vivec to Hla Oad, then to Gnaar Mok and then finally to Khull. Then from there, I went to one of the few habitable place in Soltheism, Fort FrostMoth. To go from Balmora to Fort FrostMoth, I spent nearly 1500 gold coins for the Silt Strider and Boat services itself. I spent much of money to come here, so surely I am not going empty handed. I am gonna hunt down everything in the Island of Soltheism and loot whatever I finds worthy.

I spent so much time(in days) in Soltheism. So here I am going to write only some of the rare feats that I achieved...

Helped out Ingmar by distracting a Draugr, so that he had enough time to kill it...

Morrowind: Very Very Rewarding Hunting

Image
After the long journey with Pemenic, I was really exhausted and ran out of supplies. So, I went back to my home, Balmora and bought a lot of potions and arrows and I again went to Gnisis from Caldera. But this time, killing each and every Creatures on the way. I killed all the bandits, hostile Ashlanders on the way.

After a long walk, I met Sason, who gave me the mission of finding her wife, Malexa. There was a tomb near him, named Alen Ancestoral Tomb. I went inside it thinking that Malexa will be inside it. There were a number of powerful Vampires with some great weapon. I killed them all and I found a Vampire holding a Daedirc Bow named Daedric Longbow of Sureflight. I took it and its attack rate is 2 - 50, the best bow I ever seen. Even its attack is more than the Best Long Blades I seen. It is enchanted with the constant effect of Fortify Marksman 10 pts. Also, I found Steel Jinkblade of the Aegis, which is a short blade with paralyze effect on strike. I found some valuable artif…

Morrowind: Pemenic and Boots of Blinding Speed

Image
I went for hunting with my team mates to the North of Caldera. We killed so many beasts, but I lost both my mates in this hunting session.



Then, I was roaming the forests alone and found a Merchant named Pemenic. She asked me to escort her to Gnaar Mok and she told me that she will reward me with the Boots of Blinding Speed. I already heard about this mission from my friend Sairam. He said that I have to take her to Gnisis. So, without hearing what she said I started my journey to Gnisis. Gnisis was very far from here and it took almost an hour for me to go to Gnisis. On the way, I met several groups of bandits and two persons, who gave me some mini quests. They are Rasha and Sason. Rasha gave me 5 expensive shirts and asked me to deliver it to Bivale Teneran in Ald ruhn. Sason wanted me to find her wife, who was kidnapped a mob of Cultists. Now I was taking Pemenic to Gnisis, so I ignored them now. Then, after a long journey I reached Gnisis. I spoke to Pemenic and came to realize th…

Morrowind: Great Adventures

Image
I went to Fighters Guild to look for any new jobs. Eydis Fire-Eye was waiting for me to assign me a job. She told me that there are two egg poachers in the Shulk Egg Mine south of Balmora, very near to Odai River. She ordered me to take care of them.

So, I started my journey to Shulk Egg Mine after buying some Health potion from Ajira. It was not very far from Balmora. I went inside the Shulk Egg Mine and killed a large number of Kwama Foragers and Kwama Workers. These acts wont stop the mining operation, since Kwama Workers will respawn after some time. There is a door in there that led to Queen's lair. I went in and found the egg pochers there. On seeing me, they ran towards me and started attacked me without a word. So, I killed them both and so my mission got over. I returned to Balmora and reported to Eydis. She gave me 100 gold and also some potions.

Also Eydis Fire-Eye gave me another assignments of killing four Telvanni agents responsible for thefts in Caldera Mine.

I am sure…

Morrowind: Larrius Varro and gift of the Emperor

Image
I already heard rumours that the Legion Champion, Larrius Varro wanted to meet me. So, To learn the truth, I went to Fort Moonmoth and met Larrius Varro. He told me a very BIG story about a corrupted Magistrate and he wanted me to kill some bad people, who were supporting the bad Magistrate. But the problem is he dont know, who that bad people are. Since he is in the Legion, no one is willing to tell anything to him. So, he wanted me to find out who those bad people are and kill them.

I went to the Corner Club in Balmora and asked the people in there about the bad people. They told me that the bad people are the members of Camonna Tong and they can be found in the Council Club and their names are Vadusa Sathryon, Marasa Aren, Madrale Thirith, Sovor Trandel and Thanelan Velas.

This is gonna be a toughest fight for me and Marianne as I have to face four people at a time. Since they are in the Council club, I cant even run back to get myself some time. But I have some arrows with paralize …

Morrowind: Thieves Guild

I joined both the Fighters guild and Mages Guild and also progressed to a decent level. But, I missed out the Thieves Guild. So, I joined it by speaking to Sugar-Lips Habasi in Southwall CornerClub. As a first mission, she wanted me to steal a diamond from Nalcarya of White Haven. But I already had a diamond with me and I gave it to her.

Then, she told me to bring the Key to Nerano Manor. Also, she told me that Sovor Trandel, servant of Nerano might have a duplicate key. He was one of the bad people, whom I killed for Larrius Varo. So, I already took the key from him. So, I gave it to Habasi. Before giving her the key, I unlocked all the doors in Nerano Manor and also kept a few of my things in there. For giving the key, she gave me 500 gold and also promoted me to Footpad.

Morrowind: Ajira and her Silly missions

I went to Mages Guild and spoke to Ajira. She had a series of some silly quests for me.
The first quest is to collect some flowers. Those flowers are not of very rare type. Also, I already had those flowers and gave those to Ajira. She thanked me and gave me the next quest. It is to buy her a Ceramic Bowl for her from Ra'Virr. I did that too.

With all the help I did to her, she completed her experiments and her prepared her report. But Galbedir had stolen her reports and hiden it somewhere. She wanted me to find that missing reports. Both the reports are inside the Mages guild only and I found them with ease. I returned that reports to her and she thanked me again. Also, she have no more quests for me and she told me to visit Mages Guild in other towns for more mission.

Morrowind: Sharn gra-Muzgob and her errand

I met Sharn gra-Muzgob in the Balmora Mages Guild to get info about the Nerevarine Cult. She told me that she will give all the info, once I retrieved the skull of Llevule Andrano from Andrano Ancestral Tomb.

I was told that the tomb is just south of Pelagiad. I went to Seyda Neen first with Marianne. There I sold few things to Arrille and headed towards the Andrano Ancestral Tomb. There were a number of Skeletons and few zombies in there. I killed them all with Marianne on my side. Some of the Skeleton Archers in there had some arrows with paralyze effect, which will surely be of great help, if I have to face a very tough opponent. Then I retrieved the skull of Llevule Andrano and returned to Balmora.

I gave Sharn gra-Muzgob the skull and she gave me notes on Nerevarice cult. I went to Caius home and gave him the notes on Nerevarine Cult. He thanked me and asked me to give him some time to think how all this information fit in with Emperor's plan for me.

Morrowind: Fighters Guild and Mages Guild

Image
I explored the streets of Balmora with my partner, Marianne. I found the Fighters Guild and went inside. In there, I spoke to Eydis Fire-Eye, the steward of Balmora Fighters Guild. She accepted me into Fighters Guild and to test my capabilites she gave me a small quest. The quest is to kill the rats that infested Drarayne Thelas's house.

Then I spoke with all the people in Fighters Guild and got some extensive info about various things in Morrowind. Also, there is a rumour that the Legion Champion, Larrius Varro, over at Fort Moonmoth wants to talk to me. The day 1 in Morrowind got over. The Day 1 got over in Morrowind.

Then I went to Mages Guild, located next to Fighters Guild. I spoke to the Ranis Athrys, the steward of Mages Guild and joined the guild. Ajira one of the mage in Mages guild asked me to bring samples of four types of mushrooms. I already have all the types she asked. So, I gave them to her immediately and she thanked me. Ranis Athrys promoted me to Apprentice. Agai…

Morrowind: Addamasartus and Bandits

I went to Seyda Neen by walk with my partner, Marianne. There I sold all the garbage I had to Arrille. With the money I got, I bought a short bow.

Then with Marianne, I went into the cave of Addamasartus to wipe the cave of the bandits. We killed all the bandits in there and searched the whole area. Marianne is a heavy close range fighter with a single handed sword. Also, her sword is enchanted with lighting damage. Her superb weapon along with her great skills only killed all the bandits in the cave. I did nothing but attracted the bandits towards me, giving time to Marianne to easily take out the opponents.

From the loot, we got in there, I made nearly 500 gold. Then we proceeded to Balmora and on the way, I tried to rest. But, an assassin showed up and started to attack me. He is very strong. But with my bow, I made him some damage and also Marianne killed him easily with her lightning axe. I took his armor set. It looked crappy, but it gave me a decent armor rating of 40. So, I k…

Morrowind: Caius Cosades and Secret Cults

I forgot my main mission itself. I was told by Sellus Gravius to meet a man named Caius Cosades and deliver his a package. So, I went to his home now and met him. He is the Master of the Blades and I gave him the package. He read it and accepted me as a Novice in the Blades. Caius sent me to Hasphat Antabolis at the Balmora Fighters Guild. I am to get information about Nerevarine secret cult and Sixth House Secret Cult.

I went to Fighters Guild and spoke to Hasphat. He asked me to do a favour, before his give the info. He wanted me to go to the nearby Dwemer ruin called Arkngthand and find a cube called Dwemer Puzzle Box. With Marianne, I went to the ruin and killed nearly 10 people in there. After searching the place for almost an hour, I found the Dwemer Puzzle Box and I returned it to Hasphat.

He gave me all the details abour the Nerevarine secret cult and Sixth house secret cult. He also told me that the Dwemer Puzzle box looks like a key and he asked me to come back later to check …

Morrowind: First Trip to Balmora

Trip to Balmora:
Me, Brave Heart and Marianne started our journey to Balmora. On the way we met a Pilgrim, then we crossed the small village, Pelagiad. While on the road northwest of Pelagiad, I met a beautiful breton woman, Maurrie Aurmine. She is very strange because ahe fell in love with a bandit, Nelos Onmar, who robbed her. She asked me to track down Nelos and give him her glove as a token of her affection. This seems to be a silly quest, but I accepted to help her out for the sake of true love. Then, after running for a small time, we finally reached Balmora.

Morrowind: Seyda Neen

Image
The Extraordinary Spell of Tarhiel:
I am now in Seyda Neen. Before going to Balmora, I planned to familiarize myself with the world of Morrowind and hence roamed in the wilderness around Seyda Neen. I killed a few crabs and rats and while running I heard someone screeming and seen a guy who fell down from the sky. I neared him and found that he was dead. His name is Tarhiel and he dropped a book near him. The book seemed to be his diary, in which he wrote about a spell that he formulated to help people to fly across the sky. I found three spell scrolls in his body, which will fortify your Acrobatics skill by 1000. So, it seemed that he used that spell to fly to sky and then he fell from that great height and died. I took all the 3 scrolls.

Processus Vitellius, The Tax Collector:
While going back to Seyda Neen, I found the body of Processus Vitellius, who seemed to be the tax collector in Seyda Neen. Someone who is not wanting to pay the tax might have killed him. I took 200 gold from his…

Morrowind: My Release

Image
I am Brave Heart, a prisoner and came to Morrowind in a boat as per the king's order. After arriving at the port of Seyda Neen, I went into the Census and Excise Office to get my release papers. There, I met a guy called Socucius Ergalla, who asks about my Race, Class and the Birthsign. I chose to play as a Ranger and so I chose Wood Elf, as my Race. Then I created a custom class named Silent Shooter, whose specialization is Stealth and the favourite attributes are Agility and Speed. For the major skills, I chose Marksman, Light Armor, Short Blade, Athletics, Block and for the minor skills, I chose Unarmored, Acrobatics, Illusion, Mercantile and Security. I chose The Shadow as my birthsign. After selecting all this, Socucius Ergalla gave me my release papers and told me to go and meet the captain, Sellus Gravius.

On the way to Sellus Gravius room, I took an Engraved Ring of Healing with some magical properties from a Barrel. Then, I went into the room of Sellus Gravius. He released…

No time for Blogging :-(

For the past one month, I have been playing Morrowind. I was so immersed in the game, that I got no time to write for the blog. Also, my semester exams came and for the past one week, I even winded up morroind and studying for my exams. In the middle of heavy study sessions, to relax myself, I was playing some small flash games like Bubble Trouble and Balloon Invasion and I completed Balloon Invasions yesterday. My exams will get over on November 27th and after that only I will continue to play Morrowind.

I played the game with no mods installed and I dont like the way my character develops. I not even completed half of the missions, but I maxed out almost all my attributes except Luck. So, I am thinking of playing the game from start, with mods like GCD and more installed and with a different character, most likely a Ranger.

Gothic 1: Chromanin - Part 6 and Swamp Camp Raid

Image
In the Chromanin cave, there is now a corpse of a man. Chromanin 6 is with that Corpse.

On opening the book, it doesnt have any text or nothing. Even the corpse had no special gifts. Opening the book spawned two Skeleton mages. I killed them and they too dont have anything special. I was expecting some big thing as a gift of solving this Chromanin riddle. But, there was none.


Chromanin Part 6 Map Location

Then, I went to swamp camp and killed most of the people there, including a few Baals. I leveled during the swamp camp raid and with the skill points I earned, I learned the Fifth Circle of Magic from Saturas.

Then, I went to the mountain Fort and informed Lester about all the things that happened in the Valley and told him to meet his friends at the regular meeting place.

Long forgotten are the deeds of those who once were aboard.

Explanation of Clue to Chromanin 4
"ONCE WERE ABOARD". So, Chromanin 5 must lie in a transportation vessel, which is obviosly a ship.

Gothic 1: ULU-MULU and Old Camp Raid Part 3

Image
I found a big troll near the plain of Old Mine. I killed it and took its teeth. Then, I roamed around the forests and killed a Shadow Beast and took its horn. Then, I went into Old Camp by transforming into a Meat Bug and going through the small gap below the closed gate.

I killed all the diggers and guards in Old Camp, even inside the Castle. Then, I went to Swamp Camp and hunted down all the Swamp Sharks there and also took their teeth. Then to get the tongue of fire lizard, I went to the Ship Wreck near the Chromanin Cave. There were nearly 5 Fire Lizards, I killed them all and took their Tongues.

With the skill points I earned, I went to Saturas and learned the Thrid Circle of Magic. Then, I gave the minecrawler plates to Wolf. Then, I went back to Free Mine and gave all the four items to Tarrok(the orc slave). He created the ULU-MULU and gave it to me.

Now my level is 28 with 115 Strength. Here is a screenshot of my Stat Screen:


Then, I learned fourth circle of Magic from Saturas als…

Gothic 1: Orc Town

I went to the Orc Town with the Ulu-Mulu. Since, I have the Ulu-Mulu, none of the Orcs attack me. I went deep inside the Orc Town and there were 5 orc Shamans worshipping an Idol. I killed them all one by one and took the Figurine at the top of the Idol with the help of Telekinesis spell. Then, I came back and killed all other Orcs, except the few which were dancing and not a threat to me.

Before going into the Underground temple, I came back to New Camp and relaxed there for some time.

Gothic 1: Recapturing New Mine and Requirements of ULU-MULU

I went to Saturas Place. There Riordian welcomed me and told me that Gorn was waiting for me and also he has a plan to recapture the free mine.

Then I went and met Gorn. He is waiting for me on the way to Free Mine with some other Mercenaries. He told me that we must do a Stealth mission and capture the Free Mine. But, before going there, Gorn told me to go and meet Wolf in the new camp.

I went back to the new camp and met wolf there. He told me about a completely new type of armor made of minecrawler's plates. To create one, he wanted me to get some hard minecrawler plates, which is the hardest material in the valley. He also taught me how to cut those hard plates from the minecrawlers.

Then I went to the Free Mine with Gorn. In the free mine, I took the best two-handed sword, "Warrior's Voice", from Okyl's body. There, Jackal and other few guards were guarding the entrance to the free mine. I killed them and went into the New Mine.

In the Free Mine, there were near…

Gothic 1: Ur-Shak

Image
To know more about the Orc Town, Xardas told me to meet an Orc Shaman in a ruined Old Citadel in the Orc Land. The Citadel is the place, where I took the Chromanin book - Part 2, as in this post.

I went to the Citadel and found some Orc Warriors fighting with an Orc Shaman, which must be the Shaman I am looking for. So, I helped that shaman by killing the Orc Warriors. Surprisingly, that Orc Shaman named Ur-Shak spoke to me. I told me a small story about the Sleeper:
Orcs call the Sleeper as KRUSHAK. Long back five Orc Shamans built an underground temple for Sleeper and then gave heart to the Sleeper. But, Sleeper is very bad and cursed all those who built the temple. So, the Shamans who built the temple were cursed and they become something like Zombies, alive and dead at the same time.
Then, the Orcs at the Orc Town sealed the entrance to the temple of Sleeper. Now, the brothers of Ur-Shak are doing sacrifices for the Sleeper. Ur-Shak told other sacrifice is bad, so he is sent out into…

Gothic 1: The Xardas

Image
After learning all the details from Milten and Diego, I went to New Camp to inform Lee about the raid. I used the teleport to Magicians of Water rune and went to Saturas room. But, before going there, the Free Mine had been assaulted and captured by the guards of Old Mine. Everyone in New Camp was very upset about this incident and they were planning to somehow take back the Free Mine.

I went there are informed Saturas that all the Fire Mages were killed by Gomez. He was very shocked to hear that and he told me that the only way is to get help from the Thirteenth Magician, who leaded all the other mages in the creation of barrier. His name is XARDAS. He is having a secluded life in the middle of Orc Land, studying Dark Magic. All the informers sent to meet Xardas never returned. Three powerful Golems guard the path to Xardas's Tower. To defeat them, normal weapons cant be used and special magic of the gods should be used. Saturas told me to study the books in Library to know how to…

Gothic 1: Everything upside down in Old Camp

Then, to speak to the Magicians of Circle of Fire, I proceeded to Old Camp. While going, I met Lee in the New Camp's Dam. He told me some big story about his past, when he was one of the best general of King Rhobar. After he finished his story, I bought Heavy Mercenary Armor from Lee and then proceeded to Old Camp.

Near the Old Camp, two bridge guards, guarding the small bridge starts to attack me. I already fought them and took their weapon. So, they hit me with their hand. I killed them and saw Milten standing outside the camp. He seemed very tensed and he says everyone is dead. Also, he is very afraid. I calmed him down and asked what happened. Here is what Milten told me:
The Old Mine caved in because of some accident down there and Gomez and his people attacked and killed every magician in Old Camp. But, Milten escaped from them and is now standing here. He itself dont have a clue of whats happening and told me to meet Diego near the other gate of the Camp.

Fletcher and some gua…

Gothic 1: Got all the focus stones

I am in new camp now with all the focus stones. I gave all the focus stones to Saturas. For each and every focus I gave to Saturas, I got 3500 experience. So, with the 14000 experience, I got from Saturas, I levelled up twice.

Saturas then thanked me for my great help and he continued that the Magicians in the Circle of Water are not powerful enough to control the massive amount of energies that will come out from the focus stones. So, he wanted me to convince Magicians of Fire to help them in this plan. But, the catch is they are living under Gomez and Gomez will be a ruler only until the barrier exists. So, Magicians of Fire surely wont accept this. Also, Saturas told me thats exactly why he wanted me to do the job. Also, he mentioned someone to ask for help, if everything fails. But, he refuse to give any details about that one and ordered me to win the Magicians of Fire and come. Also, he gave a rune to teleport here direclty, and told me to give it to Corristo, the highest member …

Gothic 1: In search of Focus Stones

Image
With a big number of Potions I got from Riordian, I ventured out to get the focus stones.

I decided to get the first focus stone, which is very near the New Camp. To go there, just take the elevating path to the left of the gate of the new camp. On nearing there, you will find Milten, who is looking to get a Talisman there, which is exactly where the focus stone is. He tells a long story and conclude that there is a Undead in there which cant be defeated with normal weapons and only an Destory Undead spell will kill him. He has that spell, but he dont have guts to do it himself, so he gave me the spell scroll and ask me to help him. Then we went inside, and destroyed the Undead in there and also we fought a number of Skeletons of various type. Finally, I got the focus stone and Milten got his Talisman.


Then I went to the place where I first fought a Troll posted in "Gothic 1: Strength hit 100 and Troll Hunt", during my wild hunting sessions at the start of the game There Diego…

Gothic 1: Chaper 3: Artifacts of Ancient Power

Then, I went to New Camp. There Gorn stopped me near RiceLord's farm. He told me that he heard everything from Lester and it would be better everything goes into the ear of Saturas. He knows for sure, that definitely I wont be allowed inside to meet Saturas. So, he told me to report of Cronos.

I told everyting to Cronos and on telling him, "The Gurus have recognized that they're praying to an evil arch demon!", he told me to report to Saturas. Also, he gave me the password "TETRIANDOCH".

With the password, that Cronos gave, I went in and met Saturas. I told him all the story and gave him the Almanac and Focus Stone, which I found. He thanked me for having done such great deeds and also told me that he requirs other four focus stones to break the barrier. Then, I voluntarily said that I would bring the other focus stones. He thanked me again and told me to speak to Riordian. Then, I spoke to Riordian and gave me health and mana potions.

Gothic 1: Old Camp Raid Part 2

As mentioned in the "Gothic 1: Old Camp Raid Part 1" post, there are 2 NPC's named Arto and Scar in Gomez room who I not yet fought. So, I went inside the Castle and killed them both.

Now I am in level 21 with 128 Strength, 23 Dexterity(I remember having only 20 Dexterity, may be I should have drunk some Dexterity Potion) and 51 Mana

Gothic 1: Chromanin - Part 3

Image
Chromanin Part 2 says that Chromanin 3 lies near a river which gets reunited after being separated.

Watch the river in front of the Old Camp. It gets separated by a small narrow island on the the right of the bridge, guarded by the bridge guards. Chromanin Part 3 lies in that island.

Gothic 1: Into Orc Cemetry

Image
I went to Swamp Camp and met Talos there. He took me the place where that Orc Cemetry lies. But he refused to come inside. I crossed the bridge there and fought a few Biters and 3 Orcs there. Then, using the winch there, I opened the gate to the Orc Cemetry. Orc Cemetry is very dark with a number of Orc teeming inside. All the templars are found dead inside. Also, there are a number of dead mummies in the recesses of the walls. There are many number of potions found in those dead mummies.


On proceeding inside, I found Baal Lukor fighting a number of Orcs. I ran and helped him by killing those Orcs. In a room there, there are three paths. On two of the paths, I found two halves of a Orcish Spell Scroll. I gave the two halves to Baal Lukor and he told me that the Spell works only at some specific place and not at all the places. Then, we went inside the third path. Inside is a big room with 5 Orc Warriors. We killed them all and in on walking through a place near a wall, Baal Lukor told …

Gothic 1: Chromanin - Part 2

Image
According to Chromanin 1, Chromanin Part 2 is likely to be found in the highest place in the Valley, where you will get the full view of all the places in the mine.

There is a abandoned ancient building in the Orc Land, situated at top of a big Mountain. This is a important place in the later missions, where you have to meet a Orc Shaman here. In there, there is tower at the top of which Chromanin Part 2 lies. I post here a Screenshot of the tower where Chromanin Part 2 lies.

Then I went to the nearby Moutain Fort and fought the harpies there. On the way to that fort, I fought a Bridge Golem, which is guarding the bridge to that fort. Then, I went to swamp camp to go to the Orc Cemetry.

Gothic 1: Wild Hunting and Chromanin

Image
Before going into Orc Cemetry, I planned to learn the level 1 of Two Handed Weapon Fighting Skill. So, I started a hunting session.

I remebered a underground cave full of skeletons, where I found a book named Chromanin. So, I went there. There is a tower near the wrecked ship, where there are a number of Fire Lizards. The other opening to that cave lies in the sea to the left side of Ship Wreck place. I went in there through the opening in cave opening in the sea. I fought a large number of different types of Skeletons there and found a Skeleton Mage there. I didnt fought that mage and let it to spawn more skeletons. I keep on killing the summoned skeletons and got much experience. I let the Mage to spawn skeletons for 4 times and then I got bored and killed the Skeleton Mage.

From the mage, I got a mystical Book, named, Chromanin, which is the first book in a series of 6 Books. Each Chromanin contains a clue to get the next book. But, th…

Gothic 1: Invocation of Sleeper

Image
Then, I went to Swamp Camp and gave 3 of the eggs to Car Kolem. He took them and gave me some 30 potions for my help. Car Kolem tells me that from these eggs a Strong Secretion can be prepared, which will help Y'Berion to make contact with the Sleeper. But he wanted a book named Almanac, to know more information. He told that he already a Novice named Talos to get that Almanac. But he failed. So, he wanted me to get that Almanac. But, I already got that Almanac during my extensive hunting in this post: Gothic 1: Extensive Hunting with Great Surprises


I gave him the Almanac and he told that everything for the Invocation of Sleeper is ready and he went to the Y'Berion's place. There, Y'Berion, Car Kolem and Cor Angar came and started the Invocation. They had a vision of many things which showed an Orc looking creature at the end. After the vision is over, Y'Berion fainted and fell down.

He told me that Guru Baal Lukor has gone to a nearyby Orc Cemetry with some templa…

Gothic 1: Found a way to open the Old Mine

I dont know what to do with the closed gate of Old Mine. So, searched for the solution in the Internet and came to know that it is a bug, which cant be bugged. But, there is technique to go into the closed gate, which is not even a a cheat. It is very simple. All you have to do is equip the pick axe and target the Ore piece in the wall inside, but close to the gate and start mining it. You will automatically go inside the gate close to that ore. Huraaayyyy!!! A game bug is solved by bad physics in the game. I should have guessed this before a week, so that I could have saved a week of bory play. But, anyway, because of this bug only, I raided Old Camp, Orc Land and levelled up several times and got so many items with me now.

Gothic 1: Old Mine and Minecrawler Queen

Image
I went inside the closed gate of Old Mine, using the technique described in previous post. Then, I met Ian. He told me that there is a surprisingly large number of minecrawlers inside a cave and so he closed the gate to that cave. I told him to open that gate to search for the special secretion of Minecrawler mandibles, which car kolem told me. He told me, he cant because the gearwheel to open the gate is broken.

This is the Place where you will get the Gear Wheel

So, I searched the gate and found a gearwheel near a masher. I took it to Ian and he told me that I can now open the gate by fixing the gearwheel and telling Asghan, the guardian of the gate, that "Everything's gonna be fine".This is a secret code between Ian and Asghan, which refers to the permission to open the gate by Ian.

I went to Asghan and told him the secret code. He accepted to open the gate but only under a condition. He wanted to bring 3 templars for support to manage the minecrawlers that come out, whe…

RRT II: The Pixely Junction Railroad (PJR)

I played this scenario once with the following settings. But all the time, I got only
Game Map: The Pixely Express

Gothic 1: Cleaning Orc Land

Image
Again, I tried to get into Old Mine, but I cant. So, I went into Orc Land and killed every beasts there. In my previous hunting missions itself, half of the creatures in Orc Land were dead. Now, I wiped out the remaining creatures, which includes 2 of 3 Golems of Xardas. Xardas created three Golems, which protect the path to his tower. He is studying Dark Magic and ancient books and dont want to get disturbed by anyone, thats why he created these Golems.

Golems are very powerful unique creatures which wont take damage from Normal weapons. Only powerful magic spells can defeat this creatures.

The first golem there is Stone Golem. Only the mighty Orc Hammer can do damage to this creatures. I got an Orc Hammer near the fort in the mountains, which is guarded by a Bridge Golem. With that Orc Hammer I defeated this Stone Golem and took its heart.

Next one is the Ice Golem. Taking out this one is very easy. I casted just two fire balls and this Golem was dead.


Next one is the Fire Golem. I thou…

Gothic 1: Old Camp Raid Part 1

Image
I went to Old Camp and fought everyone there. It was really a great fun. First, I fought all the Diggers and Shadows and Guards in the Old Camp outside the Castle, except few like Diego, Thorus, etc., Because, they cant be hurt, whatever weapon you use. They are designed in the game itself like that. Then, I went inside the castle and fought everyone there, including all the magicians, guards and named NPC's like Raven, but cant kill those two NPC's in Gomez room. I may have fought them, but it would have required some game loads and I am not in a mood to do that. So, I let them free now, but will surely KILL them the next time. In fact, from the experience I got in the Raid, I gained 2 levels and leveled up to level 15. Now, in the Old Camp, 95% of the people wont be having their weapon and all their Inventories were emptied by me.
