    While The Exterminator can be played using entirely Vanilla and dlc assets, my playthrough was enhanced through the use of several mods.

    Unofficial Skyrim Patches: Fixes the issue with Unfathomable Depths that didn’t allow Dwarven armor to benefit from Ancient Knowledge, making Dwarven Armor much more attractive for the endgame with an additional 25% bonus to the armor rating.

    Hearthfire display case fix: Why not display your weapons and trophies in your display cases?

    Vastly more Unique Visage of Mzund:  Why The Exterminator looks so badass.

    Sinderion’s Field Lab Redone: A delightful mod by our TaeRae that makes Sinderion’s lab a player home for The Exterminator’s extended stay in Blackreach.

    Bandolier – Bags and Pouches: Adds bandoliers and pouches to increase carrying capacity, but I used it mostly for the aesthetics of carrying poison vials.

    Dwemer Beards: Enhance the look of your Dwemer by giving him a beard that his race would truly be proud of.

    Dwarven Helmet – Open Faced Variation:  So you can actually see the beard.

    Etherial Elven Overhaul:  Several of the Bosmer presets actually shocked me with how Dwemer the final result looked.

    My home is your home: A wonderful mod that allows you to set the location of your follower. I used this to keep Vorstag and the Steadfast Dwarven Sphere at Lakeview Manor while The Exterminator and Serana were together.

    Well, here you have it, my first contest build. A challenge to create within a limited time frame and I hope you enjoy.  I had a great time playing Ohrkihnmmaanz, using elements of the game that I had never previously explored. I’d like to thank always Karver, Phil, Teineeva, and Sotek, who are always there when I want to soundboard off them. Also Dragonborn1721 for lighting a fire in my belly by also doing a Dwemer build. We had some great chats. I wish him the best of luck on his build (Rust and Steam), hope you all check it out. Congratulations to all the builders who participated in this contest. It was great seeing the creative ways you brought these unplayable races back to life. Go and support all the entries. They can be found in the first post of the Contest Thread. Character Build Contest 5 - Exotics

    Away with the vermin! Dwemer terminator targeting vermin! Vermin dead!

    Art is top notch, as always, Lissette, and the roleplay is absolutely amazing. Also...Wood Dwarf?

    Yay, I get to be first to like this)) Awesome work, Lissette (as if there was any doubt...), somehow you've achieved the impossible and made this guy not appear a total asshole) He is just a walking ton of coolness. Not to mention the telepathy))

    Nerussa and Llerethis both approve! In a sort of grumpy "clearly Altmer/Dunmer are best though" sort of way.

    Im calling it. Lissette is probably going to win this contest. The presentation, the lore, the bad ass gameplay. This build has everything.

    All the gear you would expect in a Dwemer build. Kinda cliche but the story and RP alone is enough to sell me. Great job Lissette

    Damn, Lisette! This build didn't just blow my mind....it exterminated it...  

    Seriously, though, this build is amazing! Everything from the art to the lore to the gameplay...Bravo indeed ... and also, Ohrkihnmmaanz? Best. Name. Ever.

    Thanks everybody, I had a blast with him. Was fun to get in there and really think about what it was to be a Dwemer, what weapons and gear would he deem acceptable , that sort of thing. And then add spiders. The spiders made me chuckle, they'd follow me around and they made a funny little shuffling noise. Between Vorstag or Serana yacking away, the Dwemer Sphere making rolling noises, and little spiders shuffling about, this was, by far, my noisiest build.
