Name: GATES TO AESGAARD - EPISODE 1
Author: KoukouStudios & Thepriest909
Version: 1.0 Date: 11/6/2007 Category: Quests and Adventures
REQUIREMENTS: Oblivion Patch 22.214.171.124 (Official patch v1.2)
An action horror quest plugin for Bethesda's "Elder Scolls IV - Oblivion".
The player will have to deal with an ancient twisted evil, well hidden in the ages, through a journey in time and space and the hellish kingdom of the "Cursed Ones".
This project is going to be released in several episodes because of its large length. Although every episode has its own unique ending.
1.Entirely new world 2.Quest system 3.New enemies 4.New Sound & Video Material 5.Five new unique books and several notes written by Margaret Farrell 6.Custom weapons and armors 7.A full cluttered house in Jerral Mountains
The Quest is estimated to take about 4 or more hours depending on style of play
SUGGESTIONS FOR THE MAXIMUM EXPERIENCE OF THIS QUEST ====================================================
1.I call this plugin a "War of Images". I've spent hundreds of hours trying to create just the right atmosphere at each location of this project. The lighting is 60% of the experience so.... It is recommended that you don't use "Nighteye Effects"! The only result it can cause is to spoil the experience you would have without it. You will find enough torches to pass through this quest.
2.Try to leave your companion at home this time. Expect that a companion will be lost in the "Abyss" stage, Either by attracting the immortal Abyss creatures or by falling to "Nowhere".
3.Do not use console cheat codes because they will probably break the quest line and cause failure to complete it.
Install the plugin using the dedicated installer. ------------------------------------------------ 1.Use the installer to extract the files into your oblivion directory. 2.Check the GTAesgaard.esp at the Oblivion launcher/data panel. 3.Play.
Uninstall the plugin using the dedicated uninstaller ---------------------------------------------------- Use the "Unistall_GTA_EP1.exe" located in your data folder.
KNOWN ISSUES/BUGs/INCOMPATIBILLITY ==================================
To my knowledge there are no known issues, bugs or conflicts.

PC_Master;4029331Nice Sreenshots, a real hell mod :)
Thanks PC_Master :) It is something more like an expantion than a mod actually.

All mods are expansions when you think about it. Looks pretty good, world building is excelent, but the meshes aren't exactly... unique. Hmm... a Xivilai in a red and dark area with a red storm... where have I seen this... Oh yes, Oblivion. Be carful though, when you scale things up, glitches will arise.
Pictures are just pictures and I have posted only non-spoiler shots. Believe me there a lot of new creatures to see.... But that's not the point of this project. Go ahead and play it yourself and you will see the difference between an expantion and a mod.
