Morrowind Winter ModJam 2022 Entrant

Attempted Categories = Great House | Obscure Lore

Result = Ranked 14/21 with a Score of 5.75/10

Awards Given = Most Ambitious Mod Hands Down and Most Promissing


Short Description:

House Telvanni dabbled heavily in the Daedric planes even more than they do in the current era. In fact Divayth Fyr used portals left behind, and even visited planes such as Apocrypha. In Sadrith Mora you will find a new member speaking about a Black Book, and the mysteries of it will unfold. Winter ModJam 2022 Entrant.

Long Description:

House Telvanni has a history with exploiting the Daedra or making deals if it will grab them any inkling of power. Long ago one Telvanni wizard, never seen from again, made a series of Portals between Tamriel and various realms of Oblivion. One such realm was Apocrypha, alluded to in rare copies of The Doors of Oblivion, Part 2. Also revealed in this volume is that currently living Divayth Fyr discovered these portals, and used them to acquire the status you see of him today. This has been kept relatively hushed, and you really don't see copies of The Doors of Oblivion, Part 2 in Morrowind.

However, Minailu Arenno has arrived at the Sadrith Mora Telvanni Council Chambers with claims of knowledge upending much of what the average Telvanni mage knows. All it takes is to accept a black book of some sort from her possession. What is in store?

Why quests and finding out more about House Telvanni's past! You might even find out more about the future of House Telvanni, even if it is cryptic, as alluded to in later Elder Scrolls installments.

What is Added:

- A New Snow Space whims of Hermaeus Mora
- A New Telvanni Guild Hall
- 18 New Telvanni NPCs (17 in the hall and 1 in Sadrith Mora)
- Includes Merchants and other Services
- A Servant Daedra to Hermaeus Mora
- Premised off of Divayth Fyr's time in Oblivion mentioned in The Doors of Oblivion, Part 2 as seen in other Elder Scrolls titles
- New spells and enchanted items with a Daedric sense of humour
- 3 House Telvanni Quests
- Your Own Room in the Living Hall from the Quests
- Storage Containers inside your Own Room to Separate your Items
- A Copy of The Doors of Oblivion, Part 2
- Books with Page Art stylized off Hermaeus Mora's appearances in later Elder Scrolls

Requirements:

- Bloodmoon Expansion
- Tribunal Expansion
NOTE: Both must be above this mod in the mod order

Highly Recommend having Levitation and Speed-boosting equipment before you start. Also might help to be higher level.

Known Bugs/Quirks:

- The Snow Space is Rather Large, and the Ice Walls have gaps. As does the stairs. Not enough time remained to clean this up after verifying core features worked.
- Portals were used in Sadrith Mora because ran out of time to debug OnPCEquip for the Black Book. It also means the moment you are given the book you are teleported. The mod still works, just is a little jarring for those who know how Hermaeus Mora's Black Books are supposed to work.
- Time Constraints left the Snow Space rather bare. Which is unfortunate for longevity for player's time in the space. The guild hall hopefully makes up for some of it.

Disclaimer:

- I am not familiar with the process for cleaning up Morrowind mods, and not enough time remained to research/do. This mod might conflict with non-vanilla content. Verified worked with Bethesda add-ons, and my other mod releases.

Notes:

- Mod will be regularly updated to address the issues and to add on new content. The 'duties' topic will be retired for the 'Apocrypha duties' or 'Apocrypha favors' topics when the mod gets to that point.
