It's early morning as Black Brad approaches Assarmatat shrine expecting nasties are waiting.

He's not disappointed.

On entering he spots a Dremora Lord and stands in plain sight until the creature spots him, then as it starts advancing Black Brad slips behind a wall for protection from the Lord's Fire Storm spell and runs into a cliff racer – does he have time to deal with the racer before the Lord arrives, yes, he takes out the racer and turns just as the Dremora Lord arrives. He crowds into the Lord and starts daggering him as fast as he can (Fiend Tanto* is Black Brads weapon of choice, he advances as close as possible and starts striking as fast as he can, giving the enemy little or no chance to respond with either magic or melee weapon. ) At first it's a bit dodgy, the Lord gets in a hit with it's Dwarven Halbard and knocks Black Brad down but he recovers and continues with the dagger tattoo until the Lord is down,

Fast … tend the wounds before other nasties appear. Just as he finishes with his wounds a Flame Anronach rounds the corner and hits Black Brad with a Firebloom spell, Black Brad shakes it off moves into the Anronach while daggering away, killing it.

(Continued)
*Fiend Tanto is a small dagger, that is enchanted with 'Bound Dagger'. Black Brad doesn't normally use the 'Bound Dagger' option, the tanto is used because it's got magic properties and works against 'all' creatures, magical or not.

Tend the wounds again and advance into the court yard to see if there are more nasties … yes there is, a Hunger is off to the right throwing it's Disintegrate Armor/Weapon spell, Black Brad rushes and dispatches him.

Is that it? Are there no more?

Black Brad turns to survey the surroundings and stares right into a Golden Saint's face as she's drawing her Long Sword. With some difficulty he dispatches her then again tends his wounds.

Now he carefully advances towards the door of the shrine, all the time checking for other creatures.

When he arrives at the door he wonders 'What horrors await me inside?'

But that question won't be answered until he's completed his training, after all, he's only a level 16 trainee and needs bunches more training before venturing into the secret places.

Nah, just a poor Imperial Adventurer trying to suck up to the Emperor. ;)

I thought the emperor was killed? Shows you how much I played it.

IIRC it would occasionally crash when I tried it.

No, that's in Oblivion.

As to the crashing, not bad, just use TLC. Will explain more later.

Back to the Predator bit, I believe your referring to the movie.

Black Brad doesn't have Dreadlocks, it looks like it but those are Dragon Scales.

There are 3 pieces of Imperial Dragon Scale medium armor in the game, Cuirass, Helm, and Shield.

They have very good protective and enchanting qualities, especially in my style of play.

I played almost all the way through Oblivion and enjoyed it a lot. This looks like it's made by the same ppl.

Great thread, Black Brad :D two thumbs

They are part of the TES (The Elder Scrolls) series produced by Bethesda
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Elder_Scrolls

Morrowind is TES 3 and Oblivion is TES 4. TES 5 (Skyrim) is due out later this year.

Arena and Daggerfall are TES 1 and 2, they're both downloadable legally for free at

Arena
http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Arena:Arena

Daggerfall
http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Daggerfall:Files

and a Daggerfall 1996 review
http://asia.gamespot.com/pc/rpg/daggerfall/review.html

Both games should run fine on older machines.

PS
Morrowind is my favorite. ;)

I want to be sure I'm clear on this. You played Oblivion too and u prefer Morrowind? If morrow wind is better than Oblivion its going into my gaming cue.

What I liked the most about Oblivion was the creativity and diversity of the quests. It seemed like no matter what NPC I bumped into - they wanted me to do something I hadn't done already. "And now for something completely different." I like that.
