    Very cool. I can see why you like this set up so much. I love roleplaying a character, it makes how you play the game quite different each time.

      Yeah, roleplaying the character is absolutely essential to me. I doubt I would still be playing Skyrim after all these years if it wasn't for the possibility to set your own character rules and get fresh new game experiences. It explains my need of so many characters too...at least to a point... I'm also guessing Requiem handles this similarly and that's why you like that mod so much. It adds the roleplaying aspect. I do a more simple version by playing the game, but keeping my discipline according to the rules I set for each character/class. It's heavily based on DnD/Pathfinder classes as pen-n-paper adventures are a big part of who I am. Just having a character sheet like this one in Enderal makes me quite happy...

    You are indeed very high leveled with Zarawether for the beginning Rhona reached Ark with the End of Level 2 soon 3 ... but I have to say, that she was very strait in her longing to reach the great town and she didn‘t crawled through all the dungeons on her way. Some of them I know from my first Enderal installation. I recognized some of the locations in this collection, but this chapel in the end I never saw. Looks very intruiging ... can you tell me, where Rhona can find it?
    The LUT is uncommon for the interiors, but I like it very much outside, especially the pics with the lupins are like paintings

      I figured I had to be at a rather high level. When I played Zarawether in the first release of Enderal, I reached level 11 and that was after being in Ark and some other outskirt areas, so I travelled farther at that point. I didn't explore it all though, but with this second installment, I'm going even more slowly with some characters. This way I find a few new spots I never discovered the last time. The chapel here is such an example. It's actually a family crypt and it's very close to the road right after crossing the small wood bridge into the Heartland when travelling from Dual Towers. There's a corpse on the road there - a grave robber I believe it says - and some blood tracks leading into the forest to the left side of the road. Jespar will stay behind once you get close to the old crypt and you can't miss it if you track those blood puddles. I guess it's another backtrack for Rhona...unless Ark is tempting her too much?

      This LUT is not my favorite, but I still try to use a variety of them. Some shots become pretty cool and it's always fun to see what you can get depending on the colour scheme and contrast in use of the different LUT's...

    Such a splendid set with amazing forest. I also love this one https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/50026653213/
    I'm impressed by your course of action on your way of playing. Despite the difficulties, you stay focused on the roleplay and I find it great. This is also largely why I like your work, because you remind me each time why I like this game so much !

      Oh, you'll be seeing a lot more from this area, my friend. It's a necessary region to pass if you want to reach the capital which is the next step of the main quest story in the game. Both Erwin and Heike did sets from this location too and I also travelled through here with another character earlier today. And then we have my army of other chars coming here eventually, so yeah... This place will be explored thoroughly!

      Roleplaying the character is the main reason to why I love games such as Skyrim. Often we get shaped by the game story into a certain type of a role, but with these open sandboxes that also gives us the opportunity to freely develop your character, you can be just about anything. It also gives the game a longer lifespan, because each role has to be played differently. Some enemies might be trash when playing a fighter, but they can appear as nightmares when you're a mage...or vice versa. By deepening the class system even further and "set up rules on what you are allowed to use r not", you add another dimension to the gameplay. Sure, it's going to get a lot harder and sometimes even impossible, but it makes it more interesting in my opinion. Of course, you need to have some discipline to stay in character, but I'm old enough to know a fun gameplay is not about reaching the end, but how you get there...

      Many many thanks, my friend! Glad I can bring you onto my adventures!

      It's actually remarkable how much they've managed to decorate this world so beautifully and yet the game runs so smoothly. I don't use any added HD textures for any outdoor areas, so the quality might be a bit poor when going close with the camera, but from a distance it all looks so clear and lush. I won't add any textures for the landscapes either. It's actually quite welcoming playing the game without modding it too hard for a change...

      Thanks Mila!
