Hi there,
I'm currently on the hunt for pretty Dunmer for our guild's webpage image (House Telvanni, EU, www.telvanni.eu). I've seen old Vadril here, and he looks so amazing... a battered old mage with a staff... Do you think he would mind ending up on the guild's cover?

Ah sorry, since he's a very personal character to me (and not Telvanni, haha, in fact his family were Hlaalu), I wouldn't be comfortable with that. thanks for asking tho!

A pity! But that's why I thought I'd ask.  Besides, I wouldn't want a Hlaalu on our cover anyways. *sniffles* ;)
If you ever are bored, maybe you can come up with a nice battered bedraggled Telvanni? :)

Reminds me of the Assassin's Creed Ezio storyline. That feeling you get when you watch a character age into their twilight. It's poetic.

You're fool. I'm not going to argue with something like you. Your own arrogance will destroy you and your race as well.

arrogance is just a sign of superiority, it is a necessary barrier between filth and pureblooded Mer

actually it was revoked in Skyrim, they are not vulnerable to magic any longer. accept their superiority

I can't. They're too dickish. True superior beings are those that accept all people. Not try and kill them.

those who accept other inferior beings are weaklings taught to act with slave morality in mind. it is a noble right of those who are better to rule worse ones

there is no opression in superiority, these who are of the lesser races under rule of Thalmor are simply a cattle - why waste your time on pigs
