She lived.
Fate has such a funny way to manifest itself, she thought, while removing the bandages from her latest fight against a giant.

Rumors of an aggressive bear attacking the travelers, at north, arrived at her ear.
The merchants started to be scared of traveling alones, but not many could afford to pay a couple of guards to keep them safe. That was something only riches could do.
Even with her body not completely healed, she took her axe and decided to do something for the sake of her people.

After traveling north, she found the gigantic beast in a forest near the road.
Scared and sure the bear would have the best of her, she just lifted her shield and charged like her old days as a Shield-Maiden.
Her instinct was sharp as ever, but she hoped her body didn’t forget how to deal with a wild beast, still she couldn’t not notice how slower she was than the last time she fought against a similar beast.

When everything finished and the bear was finally dead, she realized: she became weak.
The strenght she was so proud of wasn’t there anymore.
Her feet weren’t fast anymore.
But still, something pushed her to never stop and walk forward, against the limits of her body and the weight of the years on her shoulders.
She wasn’t ready to give up her life, not yet.

The Struggle, p.2



Time is merciless, and so it was to her: a warrior long forgotten, the days of her fights are so far as the springs passed one after another, now she could only live with bleaked memories of the past.

When her people needed a champion against a powerful foe, she stood up and struggled to save them.

But time is merciless.
Her old body couldn’t keep up with her fiery spirit, so she sat down on a rock to rest and closed her eyes, waiting for Sovngarde to take her.

The Struggle









Time to call two “mod authors” out on their shit.

The first texture above is from the official Bethesda Hi-Res DLC, below you can see the textures from “EotW Dawnguard DLC Textures Remastered”.

And, oh my, big surprise there!

They are the exact same fucking textures. Except that Eotw and misslexi made them brighter, added some contrast and then upload it to nexus, calling it a fucking retexture overhaul.

I don’t think I need to say anything else.

Oh my dear friend!  You can’t say things like this!  You will be harshly talked about, blacklisted, ridiculed and rumors will be spread.  On the net you can’t tell the truth!  When you do, YOU will be the bad guy!  They won’t be bad for what they did.  YOU will be evil and wicked for calling them on it.  That’s how these silly sites and the lemmings work!  Just sayin’…got your back, Jack.  Bitches be crazy.

Wouldn’t that be just classed as theft and therefore reportable? Of coarse you might incur the wrath of the ‘nexus mafia’.

Just reblogging to point out a couple of little things.

Taking Bethesda’s textures and altering them a bit and uploading them is not a new thing. People have been doing that for a long time with color adjustments, contrast alterations, etc. Is it theft? Not if Bethesda allows it to be done. At this point, as far as I know, Bethesda is fine with it. If they weren’t allowing it, they’d have put a stop to it years ago. To my knowledge, the only restriction that Bethesda has placed on their stuff is to disallow porting things from one game to another.

I don’t remember anything written in the description of the mod claiming this to be a giant package of brand-new textures. In fact, the description states the opposite. It says, “This mod offers a massive high quality and lore friendly texture overhaul for almost all new items introduced by the Dawnguard DLC…” Keyword is “overhaul.” Meaning taking the stuff and making adjustments. The mod does exactly that. If the adjustments were not to your liking, well that’s a perfectly valid opinion. But if you were hoping for completely new, made-from-scratch textures, and were disappointed when that’s not what you found, well the mod never claimed to do that. Both the term “overhaul” in the description and the term “remaster” in the title should suggest that the mod should contain the original textures with adjustments made to them.

Just reblogging to point out that shadowofdrox here is mentioned in the mod page’s “Credits” section on the Description page, tested the mod’s retextures SD recontrasts for EotW/Missi, has a picture that can be seen on the Description page, and is listed as a friend of the mod authors.

You could be a little less obvious about your White Knighting dude, as you are missing the point of all of this entirely. No one cares about the fact that EotW/Missi recolored/constrasted Standard Definition and highly-compressed Bethesda “HD” textures, and then uploaded it to Nexus Mods. That isn’t the problem, that’s actually done a fair amount of time (not a lot mind you, but it is known to happen). The problem that people have, is that EotW and Missi are claiming it’s their own super-original work (it isn’t, it’s mostly Bethesda’s work), that are obvious HD Retextures (they aren’t), that had tons of time and effort put into it (it didn’t), and that they are vastly different from Bethesda’s originals (which they aren’t.). The dudes you are defending, are lying. Badly, at that.

They whore out their images to screenarchers, all across the Nexus imageshare (and believe it or not, this is simply an extension of that community). As to gain more notoriety, and larger demographic appeals via those purdy pictures in others’ already purdy games. I’ve been playing with Bethesda HD-DLC textures for various Dawnguard DLC-related items for a very long time. When EotW first began his work on these “Dawnguard HD Retextures”, I was one of the first that were pointing out how little difference they had to the Bethesda originals. In fact, sometimes the Bethesda originals LOOKED BETTER. Coupled with EotW’s/Missi’s blatant attention whoring (just read the Description page for Throne’s sake), and unwarranted self-importance. This is bullshit, plain and simple. Texture artists like Alana12, who are virtually unknown, and receive very little attention within the modding community have put tons of time, legitimate effort into, what are, high quality, real HD retextures that even have parallax support. Alana12, FrankFamily, and many others don’t receive even 1/10th the attention they deserve because of the blatant attention-whoring that EotW/Missi are completely guilty of. That is the problem people have with this shadowofdrox. Take your White Knighting somewhere else.

Addendum: For added lulz, did you guise know EotW was banned for sockpuppetry/multi-account abuse in order to endorse his own work? EotW was only “let back-in” because he claimed (get this), that his “apparently-real, totally not made-up” girlfriend had created those 10+ accounts to endorse his work. It totally wasn’t EotW guise, and he had no idea it ever happened! This would actually become the precedent as to why Willow would become unbanned for a similar issue (she created numerous sock-puppet accounts to endorse her own images). But don’t point this out to EotW and Missi, they will stop following you, remove you from their friends’ list, stop endorsing your mods/images, and probably attempt to defame you in some way.

Just pointing out that you guys are terribly full of shit. You find one texture that is just brightened (see, I don’t deny it) and bark that the whole pack is a lie while it’s not and you know it.

You cry because it’s not a “hi res 8k parallax omg fap on my graphic card” overhaul but it’s just your wish there. They improved Beth pack without costing more resources and that’s interesting to a lot of people who don’t give a fuck about resolution or don’t want 30Mb textures for bread. And yes they improved the textures, look at this video and if you still don’t see it then I suggest you buy some glasses or some honesty because you need some :

@kye : why don’t you use your own advice about not taking the internet too seriously ? Because you obviously have an issue with nexus and the lack of recognition your pictures usually get there (or on flickr). Should I quote you ? Yeah let’s do that :

This is actually the one set, that I was most proud of. And yet, how many endorsements did it receive on Nexus? It received 18, and 2 months after that. It had received another 4 endorsements.

On Flickr? No attention whatsoever.” —> boohoo

You may think that’s rich coming from me who’s been vocal about face shots invasion on nexus except that I disable endorsements and so I am out of the race unlike, well, you I guess.

Oh and please don’t lecture insanity on not being neutral just before praising a modder whose mods you are currently beta testing and promoting everywhere. Talk about conflict of interests ! Your head is so far up your ass you wouldn’t see a mammoth sitting on your knees.

@victoria : theft ? Really ? Well then just sue 95% of nexus and put them in jail because that’s probably the amount of content that is basically mashups/retext of Bethesda’s or CdProjekt’s (witcher) content. But oh wait, Beth and CdProjekt authorized it.

This is what pisses me off about Tumblr. You all say you’re so accepting and you don’t want to offend anyone, but then thousands of people reblog something like this because Christians aren’t the minority. You wouldn’t want to offend a Muslim, and if this were offensive to them or another minority, there’d be so many comments about it. But everyone is completely fine with offending a non minority. “You’re not oppressed, you can’t talk!” You know what? I’m a Christian and this offends me and my faith, but nobody’s going to care about that because I’m not oppressed. Tumblr is hypocritical and that needs to stop.

Amen to the comment

Oh my precious lambs:

Examine why you are being offended. Because this is literally how a sunset works. There is not room for debate on this question. There is less room for debate on this than there is on just about any other thing. We are not reblogging because Christians aren’t the minority, dear ones. We are reblogging because after the debate a few days ago, creationists were given the opportunity to pose a question for non-creationists. One of these questions was:

"How can you explain a sunset if their is no god?" (sp.)

Questions, we assume, are posed so that someone might answer them. And yes, there is an answer of how exactly one can explain a sunset given the absence of a divine force. Now, you can certainly posit that God is the creator of all things and so all things came from him including the sun and light refraction and anthrax and kittens and famine and all that jazz.

But you don’t get to deny that THIS IS HOW A SUNSET WORKS, and of the necessary elements of this equation (Sun + Atmosphere + Angle = Sunset), God is not one of them. That’s because everything else is an observable phenomenon, and God is not. You can explain a sunset without God. You can go ahead and believe that God’s part of it all. That’s cool. Lots of people believe stuff like that, and I encourage you to delve into the ways that people make science and their faith jive. But if you are offended by being shown the basic scientific principals behind a sunset, you must be offended by damn near everything. And that seems exhausting. 

In short:

"science offends me"

reblogging again for epic comment.





Insane people get angry about a Coke ad in which the American national anthem is sung in different languages. Apparently you’re only allowed to be American if you speak English.

Link to the ad if you haven’t seen it.

This country is full of imbeciles.


pretty sure english wasn’t the first language spoken in america anyways. and there were gay natives in this country before anyone even uttered the word “America”. the sense of entitlement on some people is ridiculous


I was just informed about this 
Not really sure how to go about even seeing what it really is aside from it probably just being someone using pics of Bee for something Second Life related. There’s no way that they were able to take Bee’s likeness and get it in there…is there?
I mean if it’s just them using the pics to mislead people to download their thing then whatever, but if the files within actually contain her stuff I would love to get this taken down.

KILL IT WITH FIREsrsly tho ppl… stop stealing… where are the god damn interwebz police?
