"Here Vivec defeated Ruddy man, the god of the Dreugh. Vivec showed his people how to make armour from the wax of the Dreugh." ~Shrine Inscription

I love the Temple Quests. ;w;
They're probably one of my most favourite guilds/associations ever in Morrowind. Not necessarily because of their doctrines etc but simply because the quests are incredibly much fun.

And drawing this...beyond words. I didn't enjoy drawing something the way I enjoyed drawing this since like...forever. QwQ

Personally, I've always wondered what Ruddy Man looked like. I can't even find any art of him. ><

I recently started playing Morrowind, and when I went on the Ruddy Man pilgrimage, I immediately recognized the cave from your drawing.
This is just too splendid for words! :D

Wow! :omfg: Awesome. You captured this so well. Even if you didn't say it was Koal Cave, I would've picked it straight away. :-) Very pretty.

Wonderful <3. Just now doing the temple on Morrowind on my Dunmer mage. They are denying me quests due to low skills! Ah! Also, why the big watermark? :(. I was thinking of using this as a background.

Haha aw then you better do some nice leveling up! :la:

The water mark is there to make it harder for people to claim it all over the internet.
But if you want it just as a wallpaper I could send you a clean version. :)

I slowly am, I like how in Morrowind there was much more emphasis on faction relations and loyalty. You can't do all on one playthrough and I like THAT a lot.

Yea art thieves are stupid, I know someone who's art was stolen and used by someone to get into high level art classes, as well as win a contest. Isn't that just fail? If you'd like, I'll take the wallpaper :). I want to set it as my xbox 360 background, if I can figure out how to do that...

Very true, I think in Skyrim the only two factions that exclude each other are Stormcloaks and Imperials...or at least I haven't encountered anything else of that kind.

One file coming up, just gimme a sec. :D

Yea not as much factions as we had in Morrowind I'm afraid..if I ever make a big RPG I'll make sure to put a lot of those in.

And thank you! I'll download it soon! (on my iPod right now)

Beautiful mood. This is gorgeous. Lighting is just amazing, the tonal range is well scuptled and no part of the piece is too light or dark.There's plenty of depth as well.

Gorgeous details, blending, and overall composition. :la:

Ah yes, so far any TES game after MW has yet to surprise me; none of them came even close to MW. ^^

Have you tried the Shivering Isles? Oblivion's pretty painful, but Shivering Isles is as close to Morrowind as any of its successors have come, IMO. Still not as good as MW, of course, but a lot closer than original Oblivion or Skyrim.

:iconvalasedai:
ValaSedai Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well I have the GotY edition of Oblivion so I have both add-ons installed and last time I played I wanted to start Shivering Isles but for some weird reason when I went to the gate that was supposed to bring me there it said I wasn't supposed to go through it yet. :noes:
And then I was able to play Skyrim for two weeks so I completely forgot to continue. :XD:

:iconzaarin1:
Zaarin1 Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, I got that when I first went there--apparently you wait about thirty seconds and it lets you in. :/ And since Oblivion SCALES THE WHOLE FREAKIN' WORLD TO YOU, it doesn't matter that my character is barely level 2. :P After playing Morrowind, killing a golden saint at level 2 is...unnerving. :/

:iconvalasedai:
ValaSedai Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well I've been hanging around there for more than 30 secs at least and nothing happened. o.o
Guess I'll just have to try more. ^^

OMG! I KNOW! The level-scaling is probably one of the most retarded parts about Oblivion! I still cannot believe that they did that. I mean wth, it's one of the things that makes the world in MW interesting, that you can NOT go everywhere already right from the start. :no:

Zaarin1 Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, I found it a bit confusing. I got there, it wouldn't let me in, then some Dunmer came out of the gate, the guard killed it. I talked to the guard, he said he wouldn't stop me from going in but that I was crazy (probably true :P). I approach the gate, it says I can't go in yet. Then Sheogorath gives a little speech and your teleported to a little room in the Shivering Isles where you're greeted by Sheogorath's chamberlain Haskill, who is probably as awesome as the Mad God himself.

That's what I think too. It gives those places a mystique--Daedric ruins, the Ashlands, even Dwemer ruins at lower levels. In Oblivion and even Skyrim, you can go wherever you want whenever you want, whether it's killing golden saints at level 2 or dragons at level 1; there's no real reward for reaching a higher level except things die even faster. :(

ValaSedai Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah I got to the Dunmer being killed but I didn't hear any speech yet. Maybe I really need to hang out longer there. :shrug:

Exactly. :noes:
It makes you literally afraid of even passing by a Daedric ruin because you're scared one of the monsters might spot you. :lol:
