What are you up to in Tamriel Vault?

    What are you up to in Tamriel Vault?

    A new Vault and in a few months we’ll be hitting a new year. So what of the last few months of 2016? The year we settle in our new home.

    What are you up to in the final few days of September? What plans do you have regarding Tamriel Vault over the coming months? Are there any goals you want to achieve before the New Year?

    I for one have a few.

    As a Host, I plan to have all the Writer discussions linked to their home page by the end of October. Some of you writers are aware that NaNoWriMo (National November Writing Month) is in November and we in TSC tear into this like a pack of rabid wolves; well at least we try to. Keep an eye out for this over the coming weeks. We’ll be running an event and a discussion for everyone taking part so we can all help and encourage one another.

    As a Member of TV?



    I’m setting out a goal to have my first 50 chapters edited and (Thanks to Meli and feedback from Karver) I’ll be adding my picture links to them as I did before.


     

     

    Can't wait to start adding these again.

     

     

     

     

     

    That’s 50 chapters to link and reformat.

    I’ve still around 10 chapters waiting to be posted so I’ll be hitting them over the next few weeks while at the same time I’ll be working on my new chapters.

    Lots to do.

    In a few weeks Skyrim Remastered will be coming out. That’s a whole new graphics experience for me so I’ll be revisiting my screenshots for my story. Now I’m not replacing every screen shot I use but there are some which stand out far better than others.

     

    This one has got to go.....

    Well that’s my plans for the remaining year of 2016.

    What of yourselves? Do you have any events lined up or such events you are going to take part in? Maybe you plan to revisit the build in CB which you’ve neglected for so long? A few chapters crying out to be written for TSC perhaps?

    What plans do you have for the rest of 2016? Tell us about them.

    As of now, I'm working on my new story called The Silver Fox, a classic take of a 3rd Era thief in 4th Era Skyrim. I'll also find time to rework my previous story to fit in with the current one. Yes, I'm planning on creating a universe.

    I'll also be working on my photoshop skills. Still deciding if I should take requests.

    And if things turn out good, I might build a custom PC in 2017.

    Let's see...

     

    First and foremost is my "Azure Witch" build that I'm working on (that's in Workshop Limbo right now). I'm also writing the Workshop Spotlights, which I'd like to do two per month (one CB WiP and one Miscellaneous WiP). And then, of course, there's The Yellow Badge of Cowardice, a Fallout 4 Long Story.

     

    There's some other stuff that I'd like to do, but that will probably have to wait until 2017.

    At the moment I'm just fixing up my Skyrim builds. Once that's done I can focus on making Fallout builds again.

    Ha, your own universe. I know that feeling. You need to come up with some cool name, like Straag Rod Expanded Universe. :D Speaking of which, I'm working my arse off on Chasing Aetherius. Last two chapters to go, then epilogue. My - our goal hopefully - is to finish it by the end of the next month, maybe use NaNo for that. Who knows? Lis wants to continue Straag Rod, so CA is holding her back right now. Kinda. So we have to finish it. Plus, this Orc has another project on his work table. Practice of Magic. Coming to your Vault after CA is finished. Stay tuned.

    My plans at the moment include writing the seventh chapter of The Imperial Auditor, posting the first volume of Orsimer poetry.

    Once Skyrim Remastered hits I can get back to one of my larger art projects as I'll be able to pick and choose my own screen shots. That should keep me busy until the end of the year :-)

    I'll have to up my game on the poetry if Imperial is more exciting than Orsimer ;-P

    Ah, well, you know how it is in Strongholds. When some Orc starts writing a poetry we rip his arms off and beat him to death with them. It's a ritual practiced from Velothi up to Wrothgarian Mountains. But we can't pass on a chance to laugh at puny Imperial numbers-wizard. :D

    Gottcha :-) lol

    More poetry will come, keeping it on point is the fun bit, can't get all flowery or the orc writing it wouldn't be able to look another orc in the face ever again.

    I'm photoshopping pictures for my three upcoming builds: The Neuromancer (FO4), The Wildfoot (Skyrim) and The Mesmer (Skyrim). I've learned so many new ways to edit images in the last couple months and I can't wait to see what more do I come up with. :D The Neuromancer should be up the coming week.

    Nice post. Now days I use TamrielVault specially to my fan made creations about Elder Scrolls-. I'm mostly focused on this what is my project :): http://tamrielvault.com/blogs/6990/4419/my-project-the-dark-legion-cult

    I got a lot of fun creating it, a lot content to create, stories, characters, the gear, mods, art,etc. All those stuff I upload it to my blog entry "The Dark Legion". By the way recently I created a mod named Death Coil spell is a Death Knight spell based on Wacraft universe, throws an evil skull to the target causing damage, really cool, here it is:

    http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/78968

    Here is my Nexus profile I'm Maredark3D there, I 'd created some things:

    http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/users/3001469/?tb=mods&pUp=1

     

    On TamrielVault I mostly focus on Elder Scrolls, its a nice place for take a free time and enjoy, see others content, stories and more. I'm really happy such a nice site like this exist :). Time to time make a post to express something I want

    Right now I'm having a weekend long break from everything, even my perception of time went out the window.

     

    Once that's over though, I plan on continueing Ledger Codex. All I can say so far is that it's one bad joke after the other and I'm still trying to find the good moment to have it all turn around... If at all.

    You know what, have hint: It concerns one or multiple of my builds.

    Oh and before I go, don't trust that Orc that has been going around being a spoilsport, It will be better than whatever he promises.

    What am I up to...? I'm trying to mangle my brain into writing stuff! >:(

     

    Also, I post statuses every now and then, and post in the Lore questions thread. Which are good ways to take a break (besides playing copious amounts of ESO, of course).

    I'm still alive! Not doing much else on the site, haha. I don't even know how to navigate the new layout yet. I am working on the outline for ADWD and writing the scenes that come more vivdly to my mind.

    I'm in the middle of research - I'm reading Beowulf and researching epic poetry styles (namely dactyllic hexameter) so I can write an epic in the Fallout universe.  It will, however, be a long time coming.
