Mehrunes dagon entering tamriel
does dagoth ur is gay?
Me, a humble draugr, quietly minding my own business in my barrow tomb, doing my daily chores (lighting the candles, taking the frostbite spider for a walk, making the large swinging axes swing in the corridor of large swinging axes), having a sleepover with the lads in the deathlord’s chamber
YOU, loud, alive, obnoxious, barging into our tomb eating an entire wheel of cheese, making a mess, plundering my life savings from my burial urn, setting fire to frosty (the frostbite spider), re-killing me and the lads, WAKING the deathlord
the nerevarine slowly regaining some of nerevar’s memories, soul wounds from another life that eat at them and make them feel less like themselves and more like this faraway legend
them trying to keep their identity close to their heart, but it’s slipping through their fingers, because now they remember places they’ve never been to, long for faces they’ve never seen, they ache for something they’ve never know and don’t understand
crying at night because they can’t see what is real and what is a memory anymore, because they feel blasphemous, because they feel the loss of Almalexia’s love and the sting of the Tribunal’s betrayal like a slap on their heart
falling on their knees in grief in a dwemer ruin, mourning a race that was so full of life and now’s only dust and relics scattered across stone that hasn’t seen life in centuries, and every corner they turn they expect to see ‘Dumac’s face, bloody and ashen while he stabs them
facing the Tribunal with a thousand different feelings in their heart, because they don’t know them, not this life, but their heart chants love, brothers, family. they see Almalexia for the first time and yearn to kiss her, they vaguely remember the smell of her hair and how she smiled on crisp winter mornings when they woke up together, and the touch of her hands when they had been worried, and the warmth of her smile, then turned sour, and they can’t recognize any of that in the person now standing before them
trembling at the sight of Dagoth, not because they are afraid of the house of Ur, but because underneath the mask they can only see Voryn’s smile, Voryn’s bright eyes, and gods, why does it have to end like this, how did we end up like this
they lay awake at night sorting through the memories, and they can’t pick apart their life from Nerevar’s anymore, and they feel as if they had been stolen, or assimilated, into something much bigger than themselves
them crying over the darkness that has set over their people, over the graves of the people they once loved, another life ago, over the bodies of friends and family and lovers that they had to reduce to dust
they’d rather have stayed dead, than live like this
two people in one body, one soul split in half, terrified of the present, longing for the past, forced to destroy everything they’ve ever known for the sake of a prophecy
they ask Azura why, why, why
but there is no answer save for the twinkles of early dawn.
Oblivion has it’s faults - plenty, actually - but there is something I really like about the main story, and that’s the fact that the player character…isn’t the hero.
Sure, they’re the protagonist, since they are the avatar through which the player navigates Cyrodiil, but in terms of the story?
Unlike the Dragonborn, or even the Nerevarine, they’re not the big Good prophesized to save the world. Sure, Tiber Septim VII has some mystical dream about you, but all he knows is that you’re going to impact the way things go…somehow? He never says that you’re the one who will save everything in the end.
Basically, the PC is just some fucking loser sitting in a jail cell, getting insulted by some dunmer lemon across the room who by coincidence gets to bring the Emperor’s big G necklace to his assistant or whatever, oh and also tell his secret bastard son hi
the Real Hero of Oblivion is, per the main story, Martin Septim.
Think about it: He is the bastard son of the emperor, raised in secret in a monastery. By chance he ends up the last member of a bloodline with mystical powers, and the only remaining heir to the throne. Now it is up to him to save Mundus from destruction, as he is the only one capable of reigniting the Dragonfires and protecting the world from the forces of Oblivion. In a spectacular battle he faces the Big Evil, Mehrunes Dagon, by turning into the avatar of a god, sacrificing himself to save the world.
this is about as classic of a hero tale as it gets.
What does the PC do?
You tell Martin of his destiny™. You deliver the MacGuffin necklace. You bring Martin the things he needs to open the path to Paradise and fight the Mythic Dawn. You’re not the hero, you’re the sidekick to the hero. And I love that
because this frees the PC to be as goofy and possibly amoral a person as possible without really hurting the narrative. Even a thieving murderer could plausibly have an interest in saving the world from annihilation - after all, they’re one of the idiots that lives in it, and its kinda hard to rob and/or murder people in fun and exciting ways when there are no. well. people
whereas it seems slightly weird when you are the same kind of murdering, thieving bastard in Skyrim, because the narrative requires you to be the hero everybody hails as their savior.
Doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy Skyrim. But i wish more games would not make the PC some prophesized hero. don’t give me a crown & scepter from the start - let me earn being the hero. thats half the fun!
(of course this is like always just my own opinion. but oblivion gets trashed so often i kind of wanted to say a nice thing about it once in a while)
had a job interview today and got a call to say they’ve accepted me
