    Enjoyed it, my friend
    It's great to read your tales, and the shots are brilliant.
    I especially like the horse on the road, and the last one for that awesome hanging mist

      Thank you, Ian! I do like writing, but it takes me quite a lot of time considering it's not my native tongue. I'll see if I can keep a few snippets of text coming along with some Skyrim sets from now on, but I will also do different stuff. Enderal is also very much in focus at the moment, so I post far more image sets on the Enderal page of Nexus, although no writing there...

    A very nice story accompanied by very nice illustrations. Reyda's first protrait reflects her sadness from the story while the last picture shows her determination. Larnach always looks worried.

    A beautiful writing style that arouses curiosity.

      I like doing this, putting a few words together to better explain the scenes. I won't be able to develop them further, but I'm still going to aim for a few story-based snippets whenever I release a travel set. I've missed it, but it also takes me a lot of time to fully include a longer tale, so these small scenes are better for me. They're easy to read too since they won't be long and hopefully my characters - and their followers - will gain more understanding by the viewers, more life and an insight about them. Since they're not residents of Tamriel, I might drop names and places unfamiliar to people here, but it will make sense to me as I'm telling stories about characters from my worldspace and not Skyrim. Skyrim will merely be the scene of the events.

      Reyda has this sadness in her face sculpture and it's very easy to be drawn in by that. She was the first follower I downloaded and Larnach is also my first character I did back in 2015 when I returned to the game and started modding it. The two of them fit rather nicely together with Larnach's concern and her depressed expressions. We'll see how the game will handle them.

      Thank you ever so much for the kind words regarding my writing style, Gerd! It warms the heart!

      I'm very sorry there was no more to be found then, old friend! I do however intend to keep at a specific character when playing Skyrim for at least one dungeon or a questline stage with included short snippets of texts. I miss writing here, but I also know it takes too many hours of my day and since I'm still rather focused on my Swedish tales, I can't give as much time for English stories. But a small amount of words is better than nothing and I've always liked to describe certain elements from a scene with included thoughts and atmosphere. It gives more life to the characters and I can also better tell about them since they all hail from my worldspace.

      So, Larnach will be back together with Reyda, for a few more sets with words. The mission they're on is still in the doing and like always, my writing will be made up on the spot according to how the game behaves. No long or complexed storylines from my hand, only sequences from travels and adventures with a lot of leftout cliffhangers...

      Good to see you, old mate!

    What a cool background story for Larnach and Reyda! And the Forsworn woman watching them in the shadows will surely wait for the right moment to have her revenge!
    Great set with beautiful images and an interesting story, dear Rick! A pleasure to read about your characters!

      Many thanks, my dear! I won't go "full mode" in writing, but I do like a small return with at least some words for the Skyrim sets. More like scenes that happens to the characters rather than a long story-based tale. I think it suits my way of writing and it's a good exercise, because I will need to challenge both my imagination and the use of English language. I do however intend to stay with one character for a few sets to give the writing a bit more sense, but probably just for a quest or qa dungeon, something like that....

      I hope the Forsworn will play this into my hands too as I will remain in the Reach for a while. It's a risk with a cliffhanger like that and then count on the game itself, but it's quite fun writing practice...

      I do hope the game plays well in regards of the small cliffhanger. I often just write up something for a scene and wishes for the best. I kind of like it that way though, giving the world a chance to interupt with the tale and write it from there. It's good "English practice" and I will have to adapt the story "on the go" so to speak. Casual snippets, but still something to give the characters a bit more life and a background...

      Thank you very much, Patrick!

      Many thanks, Will!

      They should be, or at least I see them like that as well. Larnach was my first ever created character for Skyrim at my return back in 2015 and Reyda is therefor the very first follower mod I've downloaded. They still go strongly forward even if the worldspace is far more dangerous today thanks to added mods over the years. Average level of 24 at the moment, but still one of the highest in my "court of characters"...
