Released on Nexus by request and permission of author Dr. Smith.






Required: Oblivion, Knights of the Nine, Shivering Isles, OBSE,
Highly recommended: Oblivion Character Overhaul 2

This mod was built around OCO. There is a patch for users who do not use OCOv2, but many characters will not look as intended. Consider using OCO2 only for the duration of the quest and removing it when you are done!

Optional: Robert’s Male Body v5, HGEC, Initial Glow (All), OBGE Liquid Water and/or Real Lava 1.3

Run Tes4LODGen after installing or else certain distant objects will disappear.

Incompatibility: Kvatch Rebuilt, patch included



There is a small Ayleid tower out in the Jerall mountains, but beneath it is an ancient city where
chaos has reigned.

Featuring HD Ayleids, new glowing Ayleid armors and weapons, in-game video cinematics, complex
multiple endings, and complete voice acting, Fall of the Ayleids covers the story of the Overlord
Tyras who, long ago, took over the ancient Ayleid city of Avalon.

Now in the depths of the city there are only lifeless husks of its former inhabitants, the legacy of
Tyras' work. And one Ayleid named Valamoor wants your help to stop the threat of a Dremora
army.

Ultimately it will all lead to a confrontation with Tyras, the most powerful Ayleid sorcerer of all
time.

Fall of the Ayleids is a look into deception, betrayal, power, and choice—which we always have.



This mod is based on and uses many assets from Frostcrag Reborn, by indefiance. Frostcrag Reborn was mostly an exploration-based mod. This is a large quest that incorporates the city of Avalon from that mod, but otherwise there are no other similarities. This mod doesn’t even touch Frostcrag and you can play Frostcrag Reborn and this mod side by side.

Repeat: this quest doesn’t touch Frostcrag or its landscape in any way.

Previous versions of this quest were called “This Mortal Crag,” which was based on Frostcrag Tower, which was removed as Fall of the Ayleids is the spiritual successor to it and no longer requires Frostcrag.



These will make lights visible from farther away, which will make the Ayleid cities prettier. But they are by no means recommended and will probably only work on lower-end machines.

HOW DO I START THE QUEST?

Be level 20+ and have beaten the main quest. Wait 24 hours.

Otherwise use the “setstage fr0 5” command to start the quest without issue.

The quest can also be started and completed without these conditions if you find the location on your own.

I feel this is all the best way to appeal to everyone playing the mod.

WHAT’S NEW IN VERSION 4.0? CAN I GET A LIST OF SPOILERS?

Brand new complex ending

Fall of the Ayleids ends entirely different from pre-4.0 versions. The new ending has several variations and allows for player choice, while also tying up many of the loose ends and plot holes of previous versions. Don't worry, I'm not pulling a Bioware here--you can expect a few different endings. There are some new quest rewards, Darklight has received a major visual and stat update to be a true end-game weapon, and quite frankly the new ending just actually makes a whole lot more sense.

ENDGAME SPOILERS!

*Darklight, 99 damage
*Overlord Armor set
*Overlord Steed (a summonable horse in Ayleid armor)
*Portal room (allows you to return to Avalon)
*Teleport to Watchtower spell (so you can use the Watchtower as a player home or the portal room)
*A few easter eggs

To me this is sufficient, but there've been complaints in the past that the ending was lacking. So this new version definitely remedies all of those things.

Along with the new ending is a brand new beginning to the quest.

Oblivion isn't very popular anymore, but I’d appreciate any comments. So if you like or hate the new ending, or anything, please be sure to let me know. Thanks!
