RiseToPower

Original Idea: addiktive [Idea has been merged with "The Talos Cult Conspiracy" and remains as a platform] Elder Council Political Plot  

Overview

Is Ocato potentially going to ensure total and lasting control over Cyrodiil through some grand scheme? Is this the New World Order in effect? Utilising the chaos of recent events to transform Cyrodiil into a police state? Is there another Councillor who has his eye on the prize? Who will take the place of Septim VII and Martin as Emperor? It seems to me that the Elder Council acts in accordance with the Emperor, so whoever is "promoted" to the role, would have supreme control over the Council and Cyrodiil.

Characters

Elder Council, High Chancellor Ocato

Development

This mod will employ several new models, textures, and  hopefully, voice acting! Feel free to add ideas, that is what this whole site is for. :)

DisturbedDreams

Original Idea: harlanrm The player begins re-enacting, and must overcome, past challenges in their dreams.

Overview

The Champion of Cyrodil has seen many horrors. Now that the Oblivion crisis is over the PC begins having some terrible nightmares. Everytime the PC sleeps, they are transported to a dreamworld which is slightly different everytime the PC arrives there. Since its a dreamworld, the PC has no items, armor or weapons (but may find some in the dreamworld). In the dreamworld the PC is confronted of the horrors from his/her past. Each time the PC goes to the dreamworld they have some puzzle or ghost from the past to defeat before they can wake up. If the PC dies in the dream they are woken up with 0 fatigue (and possibly some other side effect). The next time the PC sleeps they must attempt to complete the same puzzle they failed at previously. The story could end with re enacting the Mehrunes Dagon battle, only in your nightmare Martin is not there, so you must find some other way of defeating him. Once you complete this quest Talos sends his blessings upon you and tells you your sleep will be troubled no more.

Where'sNerastarel?

Original Idea: UESP An unfinished Beth quest

Overview

There is a house in Skingrad, across from Rosethorn Hall, which is owned by someone named Nerastarel. If you enter the house it appears to be long-abandoned and in shambles (despite the fact that it looks fine from the outside) and has several undead in it. Strangely enough, there is no one in the game by the name of Nerastarel, only his house. Was Nerastarel a necromancer forced to flee the city, even the province, due to some unfortunate circumstances? Or was he innocent, and it was a necromancer who forced him to flee? There are no bones in or around the house, so it"s safe to assume that whether or not Nerastarel"s alive, he didn"t die there. (The tree in his backyard is also dead and toppled, which may or may not bear significance.)

The Talos Cult Conspiracy

Original idea: Imperial Knight (IK) [Idea has been merged with "Rise To Power" and remains as a platform] This is an idea based around the rather mysterious Talos Cult, who, as far as we know, believe in a strong Emperor, such as Talos-better known as Tiber-Septim. It shows how the Talos Cult has affected Tamriel, and continues to as they try to reach dominence.

Overview

After the Oblivion Crisis, the Emperor"s throne remains empty and the empire is ruled by the Elder Counsil. This is when the Talos Cult decides to strike, pushing to get a strong leader, aligned with them, into power. The player will NOT be forced into this as they were the MQ, but rather fall into it, as they are the Champion of Cyrodiil, and are expected to help with this sort of thing.

Characters

Many key characters are involved in this, making it a conspiracy. Most characters already exist (still to be decided) and are prominent in their respective communities, whether city-wide or province-wide.

Elder Council, High Chancellor Ocato

Count/Countess

Suggestions

Reward

The Talos Cult

In short, a cult dedicated to Talos, or Tiber, Septim. Little is known about them, other than they hated Uriel Septim IV, as in Morrowind they had an attempt at his life. They want to restore power to a strong leader, as previous leaders have been weak.

JirolinTheOgre

Original Idea: UESP An unfinished Beth quest

Overview

In Chorrol resides an Imperial couple - Jirolin and Ariela Doran - the former of whom, as noted in the Construction Set, appears to be connected with a quest that was cut from the final game. Apparently, Jirolin is under the impression that he is part Ogre, the legacy of a distant relation, and will ask the player to leave an offering of jewels near a local cave inhabited by Ogres in order to establish friendly contact with them. Seemingly, the Ogres allow Jirolin to enter their ranks, as a meal, at which time he must be rescued from his predicament. Nothing remains of the quest save the occasional script, random journal entries, and the cave itself: Rock Bottom Cave, whose in-game occupants were changed to Goblins in light of the quest"s absence.

Development

Here is where you come in, if you know how to do such things!

InnerThoughts

Original Idea: addiktive Psionic Abilities Plot

Development

The ability itself would rely on some clever scripting and integration with oblivion"s current NPCs, played out via some clean voice acting. A new character or two would be required to progress the story line, or current NPC"s could be utilised that have no major role in the main game.

Story Integration

Much like the original ideas, the story will be introduced via a series of unusual occurrences, visions, weird sounds and flickers of the ability in effect. The player will be drawn into a plot that explains the nature of this ability, it"s source, benefits and dangers.

Reward

The ability to hear what people are really thinking. A psychic ability that evolves within the player, and allows them to hear peoples thoughts. The effectiveness of this "ability" is affected by the targets mental stamina.

Loyalties

This mod is about a faction aligned against the Imperial throne.

Quest Structure

Recruitment, First Tier of Quests

Theme

The main theme is testing the players loyalties.  To their own self, their friends, their empire, the rebellion.  Perhaps the player wants to just revel in the chaos?  Regardless choice is paramount in this.

Reward

The player will eventually gain access to various functions within the faction.  Since the faction is self-reliant, this includes all the typical stores, which are available as soon as the player is revealed the nature.  As the player advances in rank, the stores drop their prices for the player, and allow more items to be bought.  New specialized stores (Other mods items?) will also open.  Also, the player might acquire services such as assassins that will kill certain targets, warriors that will follow the player or guard their property, mages that enchant and create spells, and so on and so on.  (Suggestions for services would be appreciated.)

Suggested Character

Most of the mod is geared towards Thief-type characters.  Any suggestions for alternate paths for warriors or mages should be put in the individual quests.

Possible names for the Faction

Legio Novis

New Legion

A World With No Borders

Based off the possible reasons why this faction would hate the empire, one major thing would probably be their restriction and domineering atitude. Maybe this could work out to be most likely Beast-race founded or at least the beast races play a larger part due to the abuses.  Also, the mod should portray both Imperials and the rebel faction as committing atrocities of their own, with the player potentially shaping the rebel faction and maybe even the Imperials.

LessGenericNPCs

Original Idea: Wrye A mod to expand the current NPC dialogue.

Overview

Now that Ely"s universal silent voice mod, is a available, it might be time for someone to look at doing something like Less Generic NPCs for Oblivion. LGNPC is not a very showy mod (though some components have some very nice depth quests), but it makes Morrowind a much more interesting world to just hang around in -- just wander around and talk to people. A less grandiose version might cover just rumors, conversation and common topics. E.g. actually have dialog from members of the mages guild saying something more intelligent than "I don"t know why...". E.g. have NPCs talk about something other than how scary mudcrabs are or how disgusting goblins are.

Feedback

This will revolutionize the game.  Literally.  All those who bought the xbox version, once they hear about this, may be inclined to buy a computer!   -Larianov8

Overview

A brotherhood of orcs have been missing for quite some time now. They were well-known for being rich. The last time someone saw them was leaving Skingrad to go to the tomb of their ancestors and pay their respects.

Characters

each ship will, upon reaching its scheduled harbour, dock for 12 hours. upon docking i wish for several crew members to be spawned, these crew members will be scripted to visit pubs and inns until the boat leaves, stimulating a real, immersive feel to the proceedings each NPC will be talor made to suite the characteristics of his vessel; an imperial trading ship hailing from hammerfell for instance, would not be crewed by a 'sissy' woodelf mage. character, rather than generic NPC's is what we're looking for

Ships

we want at least 2 ships a day visiting cyrodill, so the presence of shipping is noticable, each ship, as i have stated, will have its own unique character, and a character that fits in with the games lore.

Where Could She Be?

Original Idea: QFG4 Stolen Idea: Larianov

Overview

I stole this idea from one of my favorite games way back in 1992, Quest For Glory 4.  An old man wanders the streets aimlessly always searching for his lost wife.  He asks you "Have you seen my >insert name here

Characters

Old Man

Wife

Places

This should take place in one of the small settlents, perhaps one not exactly located on a main drag.

Story Integration

While visiting the small town, you run into the old man, who is aimlessly wandering around the town, searching for someone.  You ask him, and he says "have you seen my >insert name here."  She then disappears.  The next time you see the old man, he asks you as usual if you have seen her.  You say yes you have, ouside at night.  He then thaks you and says he must go to her.  The next night you are outside in the town, both husband and wife appear as ghosts,  He says " I have found you at last.  I have been searching forever."  She replies "oh, , I have also been searching for you for so long."  He replies "I have never stopped looking for you >insert her nameinsert his name< this time we will always be togeter." "Forever?" he asks.  "Forever" she replies.  The apparitions vanish. If you come back the next night, they appear agian.  The he ghost says "We came back one more time to thank you for reuniting us."  The sheghost continues "Yes, thank you so much.  Without your help I would have been lost forever."  They then present you with a magical hat, .  The ghosts dissapate. END OF QUEST.

Reward

You get the magical item.

The Blind Woodsman

Idea Originator: Larianov8 Small quest to use some of the far eastern lands near the border.  

Overview

You come across a hut due east of the northeastern edge of Lake Canulus.  Inside you meet a blind man.

Characters

An old blind woodsman (or at least he used to be when his vision allowed it)

Places

Wilderness east of Lake Canulus and vicinity.

Story Integration

So here is the story... You find this small hut on a hilltop due east of the northeastern end of Lake Canulus.  Inside you meet a blind man.  This man explains to you that he lost his eyesight for whatever reason.  Then he expains that his 2 best friends ran off.  Actually, he is talking about his 2 dogs.  he says he hopes they are still in the area and begs you to find them.  He says he will reward you with something he cannot use anymore.  If you kill him right then, the quest ends.  And you will not get his prize.  You can loot his meager home though.  There is not much of value there. To make it realistic, the man only moves from sitting on his bed to inside his home.  No outside Not much furniture in his home so he does not trip. An explanation he might provide is that his dogs hunt food for him and bring it back home, but he has not seen them in a day and a half and is now running out of food. So you decide to take him up on his offer.  The dogs will be wandering in an area from the border with Morrowind west to the river that is south of Entius Gorge.  North and South borders of their range can be decided.    

Reward

Reward... If you successfully find both his dogs and return them, he will give you 300 gold and your fame shoots up by 2.  If you successfully find one dog, it is 150 gold and fame up by one.  If you don't find any, then he gives you 15 gold for trying and your fame does not increase.  

Quest Structure

1. You meet the man 2. You search for the dogs 3.  If you find them alive within 12 hours and return them, you get the loot.  If you find them dead and return, you get 15 gold and 24 hours later, the man will die of starvation.  You will not find any gold, just junk, if you search his place post mortem.

Development

This is where the computer studs come into action.  

Become a Bandit (Imperial Knight, maybe)

Original Idea: Imperial Knight Inspiration: Paw_Prints_in_the_Mud "Overhauls" the game to the point where the player is a bandit, and has nothing to do with the Oblivion crisis.

Overview

I got this idea from a thread started by Paw_Prints_In_The_Mud at my old forum, where he went into the CS and added the "Outlaw" or "Bandit" faction into the PC's Faction list, automatically making him a bandit at the start of the game. Now, what I was thinking, was to do a kind of "Overhaul" of the game. Making the character an outlaw and changing some features to fully take immerse the player in that role.

Characters

Not sure if I'm taking this too far or not.

New unique Bandits

Bandit Leader(s)

Places
