* INIGO Introduction :)

Who is Inigo?

Inigo is a fully voiced khajiit adventuring companion with thousands of lines of unique dialogue. He's essential. He’ll level alongside you. He’ll avoid most traps. If you’re sneaking he won’t chatter. If you talk to him while sneaking he’ll whisper. He can run out of arrows. He’s highly skilled in archery, one-handed, and sneak. He has unique, random combat dialogue for most enemies. Your morality is his morality. He tells stories, sings, and is influenced by your time together.

PLEASE NOTE: Although Smartbluecat is a member on this forum, he would GREATLY appreciate it if you could please report any issues you have with Inigo

on the relevant Oldrim/SE Nexus 'Posts' pages (after carefully checking the FAQ first). You will find support there. Redirect links below.

Issues reported via pm will possibly go unanswered due to how EXCEPTIONALLY busy he is.

The more people who don't read the documentation and ask SBC to personally solve their issues, the longer V3 will take ;)

Thank you all for your co-operation. :)

Arcanus - Pure Mage

  • Background/Backstory
         Given the sheer power that my character Trystan Firebrand has attained to at the end of the College of Winterhold questline, I got to thinking about making a pure mage character using a very similar magic mod setup.
         Enter Arcanus, who was born to Thalmor parents. I was originally going to make him into your stereotypical megalomaniac, but that isn't very interesting, and I feel that I would get bored with him rather quickly.
         So, I decided to add a twist or two. To start off, Arcanus was abandoned by his parents in his early childhood. You see, he had become best buddies with a young khajiit boy, and it was this friend who introduced Arcanus to moon sugar. Well, Arcanus' parents didn't like their son's fascination with the stuff, so they disowned him. With nowhere else to go but the orphanage, Arcanus got adopted into his best friend's family. During his many years with this new family of his, he learned to speak like most other khajiit, and he found that he simply could not get enough of Elsweyr Fondue!
         The fact that his parents ditched him then and there was never forgotten, however. And since Arcanus' parents were both Thalmor, he developed quite the animosity towards the faction as a whole. In Arcanus' late teenage/early adult years, this resentment towards the Thalmor got so bad that he started getting ideas into his head of doing as much damage as he could to them. And since Altmer are particularly gifted mages, he decided that the best way to do the Thalmor in was to become the most powerful mage in existence!
         (And yes, I did name Arcanus after a certain Water Adept from Golden Sun: Dark Dawn.)

    Gameplay
         For this playthrough, Arcanus will be a lone wolf, excepting those occasions when he gets stuck with a follower whether he likes it or not (i.e. Dawnguard). The reason for this is that, being a pure mage of his caliber, he will be using copious amounts of AoE spells, which will effectively vaporize anyone who happens to be in the vicinity. So, that means no Inigo this time around. Sorry.
         In terms of equipment, he will carry the Staff of Magnus at all times once he gets it--that much is certain. His attire is a bit more negotiable, with the most important thing being how much it lends to his power as a pure destruction mage; Arcanus does not care if what he's wearing is Heavy Armor, Light Armor, or robes. Again, if the enchantment is beneficial for his line of work, he's gonna take it.
         In terms of roleplay, Arcanus will speak like a typical khajiit (using the mod Khajiit Speak). Additionally, he will make, buy, and eat Elsweyr Fondue on a regular basis, and he will not be very good at rationing his water supply (for the record, he also rather enjoys tea). And when he encounters any Thalmor patrols on the road, if he likes his chances, he will take them on then and there! Remember: Arcanus does NOT like Thalmor!
         Now, for the primary mods that will play a role in all of this.

    Primary Mods
    - Mighty Magick
    - The Way of the Force (primarily for Force Lightning, Force Destruction, and Force Grip)
    - Spectraverse
    - Apocalypse Spells (Ocato's Recital is KEY)
    - Forgotten Magic Redone
    - Khajiit Speak
    - Konahrik's Accoutrements
    - Legacy of the Dragonborn (for select relics and an excuse to fight more Thalmor, NOT the collection aspect)
    - The Dawnspire
    - Signs and Guardians
    - Arachnomancer (cast those albino spider scrolls as Destruction spells!)
    - Anything else appropriate that I cannot think of off the top of my head right now

         So, there it is! If you fine fellows have any other ideas for this playthrough, please send them my way!

  • To make Arcanus' hatred of the Thalmor a bit more justifiable, perhaps they later killed his foster family? In light of the events that transpire in Moonpath to Elsweyr, it could be understandable: in Moonpath, the Thalmor see moon sugar as a heretical substance, so perhaps Arcanus' family's death could have been part of one of the Thalmor's purges.

  • Here's another idea: perhaps Arcanus' body reacts strangely to moon sugar. Over the years spent with his foster family, the moon sugar that was used in the family's cooking started to impact his eyesight permanently--specifically, his perception of color. This could be demonstrated through the use of Imaginator.

    Now, the question is this: which of Imaginator's presets should I use? Or, should I simply go with maximum saturation, or should I go the exact opposite: max desaturation? (Frankly, I've been wanting to do the latter--having blue fire in Dragonsreach just looks too good!)

  • I'm liking the idea of it tying into Moonpath.  Very good idea. Makes it more concreate. I'd love to play a pure mage character. Its HARD.

    I say go with what ever makes the fire blue~

    I can imagine! My main concern (outside of making it past the first 10 levels) is Orchendor, since he is 100% immune to magic! I guess I'll have to whip out either a bound weapon or the biggest two-hander that I can find!

  • I'd honestly DnD it up. One type of play through I want to do but never get around to is a party of all cats. So, me as what ever I'll be, the warrior cat you get from the caravan  and the mage cat you get from the college. And of course Inigo, set as an archer only. I'm not using the names because spelling. Blah. I'd probably be a bard. As you can do that with Ordinator.

    If I was a mage I'd run around with mage cat of arrogance for sure. :]

  • I happen to have that mod in my load order already--and have had it for quite some time. Regrettably, I never really use it though, since I rarely make any progress in the College of Winterhold before starting a new character...
