      For once, she's a pretty character with a rather kind heart, so it's alright to love her! Often my more attractive ladies turn out being quite wicked and with dark hearts, but Icila is one of the "good guys"...

      Thank you!

      She's a bit of stranger, yes. I believe I've done two sets with her, the first was back when I used Rudy ENB and the second at the time when I started using the letterbox effect and the LUT's. so she hasn't been around that much in my Skyrim. I have her at level 2-3 I think, so she's basically a character I brought from my writing, took some images and that's it. This is also why I introduced her for Enderal. I've picked a few non-celebrities presets to use and most of them are characters I've barely played at all (and a few favorites like Caeri).

      Icila is a baroness in my worldspace, a very rich noble woman who owns a lot of land. She's an expert marksman with a bow, but mostly for court ranges or exclusive hunting. In my world, she's often the character who has the gold to fund missions and quests, sort of a leader in her high hall. She's done some expeditions and adventures too, but often she stays behind, so Enderal will most certainly be grim to her. No magic, just her bow and a dueling blade and a very sharp tongue (high rhetoric)...

      That's very kind of you to say and it means a lot to me too, knowing you don't often favor "blondes"...

      I can almost promise you that you will enjoy Enderal tremendously. First of all, the world itself is just magnificent even with Vanilla textures. They've used so many new assets to make this realm detailed and thriving and there are secrets to be found more or less everywhere. Secondly, the story is a dark and gruesome chapter and with the gameplay mechanics they've introduced it feels a lot more liek a classic RPG where you have to earn your skill points and then decide where to use them for your character build. It's much more true to the very core of tabletop roleplaying and that's what I grew up with, so I absolutely love it. No auto-heal gives a use for resting in beds and eating prepared food too. The world is very beautiful, but it's also cursed, filled with darkness and gloom, and very dangerous for an unprepared adventurer. Finally, it's all free on Steam and you only need to have Skyrim LE to get started (you start it with a specific launcher though, so you can play Skyrim just as normal too). SureAI - the developers - are also German, so you can get it in your native tongue. I'm playing the English translation and if the German voice acting is half as good, it's another superb reason to start it.

      Glad I can inspire you, my dame! Hopefully I won't spoil too much either...

      I've got two native languages.. although I was born in Germany.. I was risen bilingual in English and German. Most of the times it's much easier for me to communicate in english, so it came down to it, that I play all my games in English (and I know that my husband doesn't like that xD because his English is just "one-wall-free" XD). I've heard a lot about Enderal and always thought.. okay, lets watch some Gopher.. just to get a feel about it, but I never have done it... so I will go in completely blind as it should be.

      Tabletop RP.. holy crap yes.. that's how RP should be. Sign me in

      But I think I've got a surprise for you. Got a blonde character lying around with a supporter shot for over lemme think 3-4 years and never posted it.. well she's blonde... although you might not see it on the first view

      That sounds very handy! I do wish I had better knowledge in English as it would prepare me for writing stories with much more ease. I know I can express myself rather well, but it's still nothing when I compare with the way I handle my native tongue Swedish. I just feel disabled, lacking the right words, struggling with the grammar and a very limited vocabulary. I understand it's still "good enough" for most people, but for me as a writer, it sadly takes the kick away. So, I have to rely on visual stories with images instead which I adore doing too. In a way, it actually helps me with my writing in Swedish when I have to "think about scenes" with shots instead of words...

      Tabletop RPG's for the win! Always! Thankfully there are a great bunch of fantastic roleplaying games for PC as well and I'm pretty excited about the coming release of "Baldur's Gate 3"...

      Aha! A blonde secret! Well, I admit you've got me intrigued now! It seems she got some history too even if you never posted her...

    You surprise me Rick ! Such an amazing character set, with a very good choice of poses, especially on the main shot and last one !
    And this Lut suits very well for these captures.
    Love it !!

      I have to say it's almost insane I have this many characters laying around, but what's even more crazy is that I easily could double them all. It gives me some perspective on my own writing, that I have a gallery full of individuals and that I should focus harder on getting the stories completed. You often get blind when building fantasy worlds, as if it's not enough, but at some point you need to stop creating and start telling the tales...

      Icila is a rich noble, a baroness with lots of lands and she's an expert marksman. She has been adventuring too, but often she's the one that funds expeditions or pay for protection against bandits, wild folk or monsters in her barony. In Enderal she needs to step up her game a bit as gold coins can save you only so much. Her bow has to sing loudly to fend off the darkness that awaits her...

      Many many thanks!
