      This was the only character that was ahead of Zarawether, but I've catched up by now and I'm guessing I will reach Ark with both my ranger and Ri'zarah during their next play sessions...

      Somehow I had trouble to upload my comment yesterday.
      The outskirts are like paintings.
      I like Rizarah for this strong war paint. It makes her very interesting and I will follow her steps

      Yes, comments act up sometimes, but often it helps just by refreshing the site and then the comment is visible again...at least it usually works for me.

      Ri'zarah is a young mage and she's all about Elementalist spells, so she's confident in using fire, frost and lightning magic. This makes her powerful and strong, but it also means she will be lacking in other skills. So far, so good though, as she's the second character of mine reaching Ark, and this with a level 7 at the moment...

      Yep, that main shot did it for me too, so I had to pick it for the "cover". The whole image reminds me a bit of the scene from LOTR where the Hobbits get approached by a Black Rider for the first time...

      It's a gorgeous area of the Enderal worldspace to begin with, so coming here witha variety of LUT is like Christmas. I'm sure a few of the LUT's won't look as bright and colourful though, but this one has the sense of oil paintings to it. Very enjoyable to use for colourful landscape scenes...

      This is sych a beautiful region of this game, very peaceful and serene with lots of colours and small details. I'll be passing through soon again when using a much darker LUT and it will be interesting to observe the changes in the landscape. Many thanks!

    You have come pretty far with her I think,.. already on your way to Ark and a decent way in the good direction also.
    That forest, just after you pass the " double towers" I've named Ems' s forest, because she was really fond of that place and made a lot of pics there with her character.
    Always think of hr when passing that area ,... how games can bind

      Yes, this is the character that is "in first place" at the moment among all my characters in regards of being close to Ark. Zarawether - the main ranger I'm going to focus more on - is right at her heels, as I have this very same distance to cover the next time I play her save. I might skip Rock Shelter with her though and actually get to Ark directly, because she's already at a fine level. This sorceress lady - Ri'zarah - is built a true Elementalist so it's all about Destruction spells for her. I'm at level 7 with her at the moment.

      I'm very much nostalgic about this area too, because of Eva. She presented this game in such a wonderful manner and had some great sets with her strong female characters and fun humor. I remember she talked fondly about this woodland with all the small river streams and creeks and the beautiful pond. I think I'll follow your initiative and call it "Em's Forest" too. It's very appropriate. I've also said to myself, I won't get into any kind of romance with Jespar, because Eva really did like that male character quite a lot, so he's her guy. It's beautiful to have this memory of her, but it also comes with strokes of sadness since she's gone.

      Control yourself!

      But yeah, I might be a bit flirty too with some characters. I have a few rather seductive people in my stall of chars...

    Like you said, this different Lut looks really awesome and work wonderfully with the landscapes.
    Interiors are also fantastic, with amazing shadows. Really gorgeous set my friend

      I really like this LUT, especially from a distance the landscapes look kind of like oil paintings. It's a great one fro portraits too in Skyrim, but it's a bit more troublesome to get all setup in Enderal. Faces get very washed out sometimes when close to the light source, but it shows how nice it can be when the background is more shadowy or dark. I've always liked the colour palette of this LUT. The contrast is quite strong, but the colours remain very rich and vivid which is why it looks great when doing scenery shots. My only "issue" is up-close shots show the lower quality of the textures a bit too good. But hey, we all once played Vanilla Skyrim and it was just a different kind of grey all over. At least in Enderal the colours are changing..

      Next play will be with the main character Zarawether again, as I'm about to travel across this very same area. It will be a very interesting experience though, because the LUT I'm going to use is my favorite, a very somber looking one. Not sure how this colourful woodland will look with it, so I'm quite curious...
