Assassins And Thieves by shaydh Assassins And Thieves by shaydh
...or the Nerevarine, the Dovahkiin, and the Champion of Cyrodiilpfft so lame walk into a bar.

This was the picture I had done a while ago that I lost the lineart of the background to, got frustrated, and didn't work on it for half a year. The lineart was so clean, though, I couldn't let it go to waste, so I redrew the background. I'm quite convinced the original one was better. And I have never drawn as many belts and buckles in one picture before. My poor hand. :|

Jaana's got some Balmora Blue, Garik has typical Nord Mead, and Dravven is about to (predictably) fail to save his Velvet LaChance from an untimely demise. And the bar is EMPTY because I can't be bothered to populate it it's probably like 1 AM and they just broke into some random place to drink.

[link] - Also, obligatory drinking song.

lol, broke in to have a drink XD that sounds like best skyrim party ever. I just imagine whole thief-guild gang, at 3am, all after their jobs "hey, lets go grab a pint or two! - uh, everything's closed... - your point?..." XD
This is REAL damn good!

Dravven looks so much like a girl that it's cute. :XD: I love how he and Jaana are super thin while Garik the Nord is all barrel chested and hairy. It's so perfect.

I hoarded Skooma in Oblivion and set it up in little rows all over my house.

It's not as fun in Skyrim because it isn't illegal. XD

Roughly the end of the Second Era so well before any Elder Scrolls game we've played so far.  The Dark Elves see Morag Bal's influence in Cyrodil as something that should not be happening ever and so decide to fight... and take the throne while they're at it.  They respect the Nords and the two groups had an alliance to deal with the Akavirii that invaded shortly before.  The Argonians didn't have anyone else they could ask really seeing as Cyrodil is the problem... Though the "free all [Argonian] slaves" clause the managed to get was a definite plus.  The Noridic king is nominally in charge though in truth the ruling body is a tribunal made of one representative of each race.


Basically ESO is where Merunes Dagon got the idea for the Oblivion Crisis.  We all know how THAT turned out.


On to the actual art, who found whom first and which one, the Argonian or the Nord decided that three nigh immortal and ridiculously powerful beings being drunk in the same room was a good idea?  I might have entertained the idea that the Elf brought it up, but I don't think I see any influence of Shogath on him... could be wrong.<br / />

Kind of wondered about the stuff really, what it was what was in it, and what province it initially came from and what race was responsible for making it.

I think it's made from moon sugar, and made by the Khajiit. Oh those crazy Khajiit. Unless you meant Balmora Blue, in which case I have no idea.

I wonder if the Champion of Cyrodiil decided to change back to his mortal appearance before he went drinking with the Nerevarine and the Dovahkiin cause he didn't want to spoil what happen when he went to the shivering isles

My headcanon says that Sheogorath split off that part of him back into his original form. It doesn't explain what the Nerevarine is doing there though...
