Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is a Role-Playing Game developed by Bethesda Softworks and released in 2006 for PC and Xbox 360 and one year later for the PlayStation 3.The game places you in the role of a prisoner, convicted of an unknown crime and incarcerated in the dungeons of the Imperial City. Your imprisonment is cut short by the arrival of Emperor Uriel Septim (played by Patrick Stewart) and his bodyguards, the Blades, fleeing assassins who are trying to eliminate the royal family. Their escape route just happens to lead through your cell.What follows is a lengthy quest to save the province of Cyrodiil, heartland of the Empire which spans the whole continent of Tamriel, from destruction at the hands of Mehrunes Dagon, the Daedric prince of destruction.The game boasts a huge open world with sixteen square miles of terrain to explore, hundreds of dungeons, eight cities filled with NPCs that have their own daily routine and enough quests to fill hundreds of hours of play time.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })The player has the opportunity to join several factions, such as the Fighter’s Guild, and all have their own storylines spanning several quests.The game received a universally positive critical response, the PC and Xbox 360 versions holding Metacritic scores of 94. The response from players was also generally positive, but the opinions of long-time fans of the series was more mixed, as many of them thought the game was too simplified compared to the previous installment in the franchise, Morrowind. In the long view, the game has also faced some pointed criticism for glaring technical issues that become very obvious during long or repeated playthroughs, as well as certain aspects of its gameplay mechanics being extremely, almost trivially-to-the-point-of-doing-so-accidentally easy to break. These criticisms are ones the game's descendants, obvious or otherwise, have tried to answer.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })The game spawned a huge and dedicated modding community that still continues to churn out content. These mods range from new items to complete overhauls of the game. For mods with their own trope pages, see Integration: The Stranded Light and Nehrim. For other recommended mods, see this page.The game launched during a turning point in the medium, and served as a guinea pig of sorts for the Xbox Live Marketplace and Downloadable Content, receiving a significant amount of new content, ranging from player homes, to a whole new story arc in the form of Knights of the Nine, which was eventually released on PC as well. The game also received full expansion called Shivering Isles, dealing with Sheogorath, the Daedric prince of madness, in 2007.

Blamed for Being Railroaded
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_10fe7cc1
comment
Blamed for Being Railroaded: Late in the Dark Brotherhood quests, you are given assassination contracts by dead drop, which a traitor intercepts to trick you into killing Dark Brotherhood members instead. Even though the change in the letters' tone is obvious and several targets have Dark Brotherhood gear in their homes, even though you can visit your boss at home for a chat between killings, Stupidity Is the Only Option: you have to kill most of your superiors, get caught by your boss, and weather his What the Hell, Hero? speech. In the Wizards storyline, you are sent as an envoy to the reclusive Count Hassildor, whose obvious Mole of a steward tells you he'll only meet you at a remote mine shortly after midnight. To progress, you have to walk into the steward's ambush, then let the Count "rescue you" — even if you beat your assailants yourself — and repeatedly insult you for your foolishness.

Spell Levels: The game had all spells divided into five difficulty levels (Novice, Apprentice, Journeyman, Expert, and Master), and you could only learn higher-level spells after raising your skill in the corresponding magical school to a certain level.

Does This Remind You of Anything?
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_14ed6ab7
comment
Does This Remind You of Anything?: In the Shivering Isles expansion there is a quest where Hirrus Clutumnus asks you to kill him. He's sick of being alive, but doesn't want to kill himself because suicides are punished in the Shivering Isles by having their souls stranded forever on the Hill of Suicides. He offers you a reward which you can retrieve from his house after you kill him. The reward is the Ring of Happiness, a ring which brightens things around the wearer, makes them feel lighter, and makes it easier for them to talk to people. In his will he mentions that it was given by a mage who said it would make his life bearable; but he stopped wearing it because it made him not feel like himself.

You Can't Thwart Stage One
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_15385326
comment
You Can't Thwart Stage One: Cutscene Incompetence stops you saving the Emperor from assassins at the start of the game. You arrive at Kvatch the day after The Daedra burn it to the ground, though thankfully Martin, the man you were sent to rescue, survived by hiding in a chapel. You take him back to the priory just as the Mythic Dawn have finished ransacking the place and taken the Amulet of Kings. You can't stop Mankar Camoran fleeing to Paradise with the amulet, you need to adventure the length and breadth of Cyrodiil looking for components to build a portal so you can follow him. And even when you finally get the amulet, Mehrunes Dagon still achieves his goal of being summoned to Tamriel. If you join the Dark Brotherhood, Lucien Lachance can't stop you murdering half of the Brotherhood, all the way up to The Listener. You can't save him when the surviving members execute him for treachery, and the only way you can expose the real traitor, Bellamont, is when he tries to kill the Night Mother, by which time only you and one other Brotherhood leader, Arquen, remain. No matter what you do, once you come out of the orc usurer's dungeon, you can't stop poor Aleron's death. And you can only delay Sheogorath's transformation into Jyggalag and the triggering of the Greymarch, not stop it completely.

Secret Test: In the end of the Dark Brotherhood quest the Night Mother reveals she knew Mathieu Bellamont was the traitor before he even knew. Instead of telling the Listener to watch out for him she decided to see if her followers were smart enough to figure it out themselves. Turns out they weren't.

You Fool!: In a Mages' Guild quest, a count's steward informs you that the count wishes to meet you outside of town at 2 am. The steward shows up there with a couple of necromancers, tells you that he tricked you, and tries to kill you. The count himself arrives and helps save you. Afterward, he angrily says: "You impossible fool. What possessed you to think I would suggest a meeting here, of all places?"

comment
Dummied Out: The Lock spell, mainly so as to not break NPC's scripts and such. A city, Sutch, appeared in early versions of the game's map, but does not appear in the actual game. Fort Sutch, the unmarked "Attack on Fort Sutch" quest, and a handful of leftover text are all that remain of it in the released game. It would have been located just north-west of Kvatch, and likely would have contained the Chapel of Kynareth, which is also absent in the game. But as with much anything, there's a mod that adds Sutch into the game as it was originally planned.

Adoring the Pests: One of the first Fighter's Guild quests sends you to help out a woman who has a 'rat problem' in her basement. Turns out she actually likes having the rats down there; the problem is the mountain lions that keep killing them. It's also a reference to Morrowind, as a woman with a similar name asks you to kill a few rats for the first fighter's guild quest.

Lord British Postulate: Mehrunes Dagon is actually killable, he just has a ridiculous amount of health and regeneration. If you can figure out how to hit over 10000 (see GameBreaker.The Elder Scrolls), you can actually one-hit kill him. Alternatively, use Wabbajack, then wail on the poor Daedric Prince. Cue melting god. note Mehrunes Dagon character has no proper death animation programmed since he wasn't meant to be killed, and as a result of dying, the skeleton literally gives way and the 3D character model simply collapses to the ground. This will effectively happen with anything that has no proper skeleton installed, but is quite visible here just because Dagon is so damn BIG.

 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_1bc2e445
comment
End of an Age: The end of the Cyrodillic Empire to be exact. The Septim bloodline is gone and the empire itself in a weakened state. NPCs in the game already talk about the High Elves planning to go against the empire and, after finishing the main quest, some of the provinces plan on seceding. Turns out that in Skyrim, the High Elves formed their own Empire, slowly picking away territory. And, like the NPC's said, 2 of the other provinces did indeed secede. By the time Skyrim's story starts, the Empire is only a shadow of its former self.

Poor Communication Kills: The Heretics of Cann, a ruin in The Shivering Isles, kidnap people from the marshes and lock them in a dungeon, offering them fine foods, poetry-writing supplies and sensual comfort to prepare them for "The Elaborate Spectacle" (which is described as involving "loving embraces" and "public display of shared pleasure"). Unfortunately, their habit of simply assuming people would naturally think as they do instead of actually explaining their intentions led every single captive to believe that the Spectacle was actually an arena battle to the death. It never ended well.

Hungry Weapon: the warrior Umbra holes up in an Ayleid ruin mostly to isolate her sword (also called Umbra) from the souls it lusts for. Of course, you, the bastard that you are, will kill her and take this evil thing for yourself.

Reality Ensues

comment
Reality Ensues: The "Imperial Corruption" sidequest consist in investigating (justified) accusations of extorsion againt Audens Avidius, one of Imperial City's captains of the guard. Unsurprisingly, trying to confront him without backup from other guards and ironclad proofs results in a failure and earns you a bounty. Trying to perform a Bare-Handed Blade Block without an adequate level in the Block skill will cause you to take a fair bit of damage. Averted once your Block skill improves. In the Shivering Isles expansion, you are sent on a vital quest by Sheogorath to save his realm from destruction. If the player goes back to Cyrodill and then begins Sheogorath's daedric quest, he will be upset that you are wasting time rather than completing the tasks he has given you. If you do so after being made the new Sheogorath, Haskil will appear and comment on you leaving offerings to yourself, as well as criticize you for wasting time if you have no yet resolved the threat facing the Isles. If the player attacks Sheogorath he will instantly kill them by teleporting them into the sky and letting gravity do the rest. What else would you expect to happen when you attack a god in his own realm?

Cruel and Unusual Death: If you attack Sheogorath at any time during Shivering Isles, he will paralyse you with magic, then teleport you to thousands of feet above ground out in the wilderness and let gravity do the work for him. Or he throws the rest of the world at you. It's not really clear which. Transformation into Worm Thrall, the fate of The Mole within the Necromancers, Mucianus Allias. You are expected (but not required) to Mercy Kill them. The many corpses seen strung up in the realm of Oblivion, along with the sacks of skin simply labelled "The Punished" have their fates left to the player's imagination, but they were no doubt very painful deaths. That is, assuming they're dead. Near the end of The Dark Brotherhood Questline, Lucien Lachance is cornered by members of the Black Hand and killed for his treachery... except he didn't do it. All that's left of him is a strung up husk, with its mouth ripped out. If you talk to one of the culprits, she will mention eating his intestines.

Ambiguously Brown
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_2207b002
comment
Ambiguously Brown: Or perhaps Ambiguously Blue, in this case. There are a few Non Player Characters running around which either had their races incorrectly flagged in the CS, or are showing signs of mixed heritage. One noteworthy example is a guard seen in Anvil (who guards the chapel and warns people of the scene inside with KOTN installed) who is definitely a Redguard in skin tone and appearance but has an Imperial voice. Cutter, the emo Dementia blacksmith in Shivering Isles, looks to be a Dunmer, but has yellow eyes (the CS lists her race as Bosmer). There are also two female Dementia residents, both Imperial, who have blue skin tones. And then there are some who definitely belong to other races yet are programmed to be otherwise. Numeen and Mahei are a couple of wealthy Argonians who are seen as guests by the count and countess in Leyawiin. Considering the issues of the countess, it is surprising that she visits them often. Later on you realize that they are apparently also referred to as the Derics (they both share an item called Deric's Key which refers to their home, and the NPCs call them as Derics through gossip) and one could easily tell that they were probably meant to be Bretons.

Aborted Arc: In the vicinity of the Black Horse Courier offices, you are given the new topic "Do you need couriers?", which was obviously part of an intended quest. However, the question never appears in your dialogue options. There is also a cave that can't be explored as a door is locked and there is no key in the game. Dialog indicates there was to be a quest involving a Red Queen and Black Queen- the Black Queen was to live in the cave. Cheating your way through- either by using the console to unlock the door, clipping through, or using paintbrushes to get through the secondary entrance- reveals a cave that's completed but not quite finished in terms of final content. The game quickly dispenses with plot points which had been set up in Morrowind and its expansion packs. Uriel Septim either recovered from his illness, or it hadn't progressed to a critical stage before he was assassinated. The Succession Crisis among his sons that was implied didn't end up being an issue, as the Mythic Dawn cult killed all of them before the game even began.

Ironic Echo: "You're going to die in here!" and "All of Tamriel will know my name"elaborate When you first start the game, the first NPC you meet is a Dunmer named Valen Dreth, a prisoner in the cell opposite yours. He'll insult you (depending on which race and gender you choose, even if you're a Dunmer yourself), and then finish with "you're going to die in here". Additionally, before you find him the 2nd time, he is heard taunting a guard that "All of Tamriel will know my name" when he is released, his killing winds up a major headline. If you're in the Dark Brotherhood, you're given a contract to kill him. You don't have to talk to him, but if you do, you can fling those exact words back at him before murdering him.

Stuck Items

comment
Stuck Items: The game won't allow you to drop quest essential items. This is to prevent you from making a quest Unwinnable by losing quest-essential items. Also, said items are weightless. Unfortunately many items will not properly have the "undroppable" tag removed long after they are no longer needed and at least once (Molag Bal's quest) an item that needs to be dropped to complete a quest may get flaged as undroppable. Most of these are unfixed as of the last official patch, requiring fan-made patches to fix.

His severed head can also be found in one of the ruined buildings of Kvatch, complete with eye scar, but nearly every player failed to notice who it was meant to be. It wasn't until the Skyrim expansions featured his spirit, mentioning that he was living in Kvatch at the time of the attack, that players noticed the head and realized who it was.

Curse Escape Clause: Jyggalag, the Daedric Prince of Order, was cursed with madness to become Sheogorath. Once an era, he returns to normal, and will conquer his land of the Shivering Isles. Once he did that, however, he would become Sheogorath once again. Aware of his fate, Sheogorath attempts to find an escape clause by preventing his change into Jyggalag. However, he fails at this. The Hero of Kvatch and Haskill decide to escape the curse by taking up the mantle of Sheogorath and beating Jyggalag in battle. This works.

Awesome, but Impractical: The unicorn, which is supremely cool to ride around on but has such a high aggression that it will attack anyone it sees with drawn steel, including younote Unless your fame - infamy >=50, that is. Several leveled spells also count. Said spells are still fairly useful at lower levels even though they're weaker. When obtained at higher levels they become much stronger, but in turn they also cost so much magicka to use that they become extremely impractical. This includes the summonable lich, which has an area of effect spell that can demolish the player character if an enemy gets too close.

No-Harm Requirement: The Thieves' Guild enforces a strict Thou Shalt Not Kill policy on its members; Killing anyone related to a mission for them will result in you being expelled from the guild and forced to pay a fine to one of their leaders if you want to be allowed to rejoin.

Not only that, but if you try to convince him that no-one is spying on him, he'll convince himself that you're part of the conspiracy and attack you! Big mistake.

Succession Crisis

comment
The game quickly dispenses with plot points which had been set up in Morrowind and its expansion packs. Uriel Septim either recovered from his illness, or it hadn't progressed to a critical stage before he was assassinated. The Succession Crisis among his sons that was implied didn't end up being an issue, as the Mythic Dawn cult killed all of them before the game even began.

Autosave: The game automatically saves your progress each time you enter a new location, with a small "Autosaving" notification on the upper left of the screen. This feature can be turned off, however, and some expert players even suggest it, as it has been occasionally known to produce corrupted save files for some players.

100% Heroism Rating
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_31874a
comment
100% Heroism Rating: You have to settle for the occasional compliment ("You're the one who closed the demon gate! The Hero of Kvatch!"). Although you get these based on your actions regardless of your fame or infamy. NPCs' disposition towards you also increases as your fame rating increases. Oh, and you do get a statue of your character built (it's essentially a copy of your character model at the time the quest was completed but stone textured) which is modeled with the most valuable items you have with you when you do this. There is a very nice and thus valuable dagger you get from the Brotherhood, which will take precedence. It just looks silly - full regalia, big armour, giant shield, ramming a 3 inch dagger into the sky...although, apparently, if you have enough torches in your inventory at the time of completion, your weapon will be on fire! Oblivion tracks fame and infamy separately so you can be greeted heartily when you approach a guard and then be chastised for being a thief when you talk to him.

Shoplift and Die
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_33bcd2af

Shoplift and Die: Oh yes. Though not as badly done as in Morrowind; normal NPCs don't immediately go apeshit, swarm attack you and try to kill you on sight if caught stealing. They do, however, start screaming like morons and any nearby guards will come running. And then if you refuse to pay gold or go to jail, they'll kill you. Each NPC in the game has an assigned "responsibility" value, which determines how strictly they follow the law and also how they will report violations of the law. While Imperial Waterfront inhabitants might steal food and cheer on a fight rather than report it to guards, shopkeepers will call for the guards if you so much as touch something without paying for it.

Glenroy the Blade, also met in the prologue. He's very distrustful and rude of the player and at one point suggests killing you just in case you are working with the assassins. Then again, the Emperor's life is in danger, Glenroy knows nothing about the assassins (which means the player could really be one of them) and the source of the Emperor's trust in the Champion are the dreams of an 87 years old man. Even though the Champion is not an assassin, they still end up killing the Emperor while Glenroy himself dies trying to protect him

It's also never revealed why the PC is in prison, with the Emperor pretty much saying "Who cares? A demon invasion is underway!" To correct for this, there's a mod where you start in the basic world, and the first crime you get arrested for in the Imperial City starts the main plot.

Interesting variation in the quest Whodunit, where you're locked in a mansion with five people of various races you have to kill them, including a Breton, a Nord, a Redguard, a Dark Elf, and an Imperial. The Breton is racist against the Dark Elf, but the most extreme racism is displayed by the Redguard towards the Nord; which is to say that the worst hatred isn't between the fantasy races, but between the humans.

Keystone Army: Most of the named Goblin tribes (the exceptions being "Bitterfish" and "White Skin") in the game will automatically stop being hostile towards the player once they eliminate the local shaman. They'll even let you explore their lairs at your own pace and take their stuff without even attempting to stop you. However, they will resume attacking you if you decide to harm them any further. Also, summoned creatures will automatically vanish if the NPC that conjured them gets killed. Once you kill Mankar Camoran in Paradise, then Eldamil, the Camoran siblings, and all the other immortal residents will drop dead on the spot. A similar event happens to the Golden Saints and Dark Seducers when their Wellsprings are stopped by the forces of Order.

Alternatively, use Wabbajack, then wail on the poor Daedric Prince. Cue melting god. note Mehrunes Dagon character has no proper death animation programmed since he wasn't meant to be killed, and as a result of dying, the skeleton literally gives way and the 3D character model simply collapses to the ground. This will effectively happen with anything that has no proper skeleton installed, but is quite visible here just because Dagon is so damn BIG.

Captain Obvious: BY THE NINE DIVINES, ASSAULT! "Someone's been murdered!" Rarely, guards who helped you kill someone may go to the corpse and say "Hmm... body's still warm. Looks like there's a killer about." When you're given the quest to kill the Black Bow Bandits, you're told the gang is called that because they use black bows.

Secret Test of Character

Secret Test of Character: During the Knights of the Nine quest chain, you have to talk to the Prophet. He fills you in on some evil that's plaguing the lands, and then talks about recovering some relics. He asks if you're worthy enough to find them, but if you say anything other than "no/not ready", he mocks you and says that you don't need his help in finding them since you're already such an awesome hero. However, if you say you're not ready, he tells you that a humble heart is the first step and allows you to continue the quest chain.

Late in the Dark Brotherhood quests, you are given assassination contracts by dead drop, which a traitor intercepts to trick you into killing Dark Brotherhood members instead. Even though the change in the letters' tone is obvious and several targets have Dark Brotherhood gear in their homes, even though you can visit your boss at home for a chat between killings, Stupidity Is the Only Option: you have to kill most of your superiors, get caught by your boss, and weather his What the Hell, Hero? speech.

Blade Below the Shoulder: In the Shivering Isles expansion, we have the Gatekeeper, a sizeable Frankenstein-like monster guarding the entrance to the Isles. One of his arms is a giant blade. After killing the monster, we are tasked later on with putting him back together, using various body parts. For his arm, we can choose between the exact same blade and also an axe and a mace. The cut content suggests that there was also a regular fist to be included too...

This quest might have been interesting if it hadn't been named "Separated at Birth". Archmage Traven sends you to retrieve a book from Count Janus Hassildor... but he has an ulterior motive. Which probably won't come as a major twist, considering that the quest is named "Ulterior Motives".

Sniping Mission: The Dark Brotherhood quest where you are ordered to kill Adamus Phillida with a special arrow. Though even if you're standing really far away and are well hidden from view, somehow the guards will always detect you...note Although if you are interested in the technical reason, the script for the arrow (which immediately kills Philida) doesn't activate until a split second after the arrow hits. Unless you're completely invisible, Philida will recognize he's under attack and will immediately report the crime before he croaks. The Thieves Guild has a quest in which you must stand on a switch in order to open a keyhole on the other end of the room, then fire the key (which has been made into an arrowhead) into the keyhole without stepping off the switch.

Sticks to the Back
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_43d5d6d5
comment
Sticks to the Back: Averted completely with bladed weapons (daggers, shortswords, and longswords), although instead it becomes "sticks to the side", since the scabbard sticks to the character's hip with nothing visibly holding it in place. The same goes with maces and axes. Played completely straight, however, with two handed weapons, bows, and arrow quivers. There is an explanation for the way a one handed weapon seems to "hover" over a character's hip: armors in Oblivion are thick and padded, and most of them also have belts that are supposedly there for the sword's scabbard/blunt weapon's handle to hang on to. A character wearing nothing but mere clothing (which isn't as thick as, say, a suit of leather armor) will have his weapon "hovering" over their hip, because if they were sticking to it, they would clip through thicker armors.

If you shoot someone in the head and they don't die or see you, they'll just walk back to where they were with the arrow still sticking out of their heads. Because it "must have been the wind."

Imperfect Ritual: In one questline, Umbacano, a collector of Ayleid artefacts, asks you to aquire an Ayleid Crown of Nenelata that is in the possession of a rival collector; the second collector refuses to sell, but suggests that an Ayleid Crown from Lindai might be similar enough to fool Umbacano. Whichever crown you give him, Umbacano reveals that he wants to use it as a component in a ritual. If he has the Nenelata crown, the ritual will turn him into a lich, but if he has the Lindai crown, the ritual will kill him.

Game Mod

comment
Game Mod: Enough of them to build several whole new games. In fact, several mods are there for just that purpose. Sadly, Sturgeon's Law is in effect for many of them, and they're only useful if you run the PC version. Nehrim: At Fate’s Edge by SureAI is one of the better ones, expansive enough to warrant its own page here. Integration: The Stranded Light, a sprawling quest mod larger than all the DLCs combined, involving helping a guild full of friendly (and not so friendly) daedra, Khajiit sufferage, stamping out (or aiding) the notorious Renrijra Krin, building a mushroom city, and a romance with a daedra seducer, just to scratch the very surface. Another major mod is Knights Of The Nine: Revelation, which serves as a sequel to the original KOTN, building heavily on more. You will eventually be sent back to the first era to assist in the fall of White Gold Tower, meeting St. Alessia and Pelinal Whitestrake. And, if just to add more fuel to the guessing, you get to chat with the severed head of Pelinal Whitestrake... as if Sheogorath's "a severed head" line in Skyrim didn't need even more fuel to confuse matters... Some of the more renowned mods include Oscuro's Oblivion Overhaul (removes leveled enemies in favor of hand placed, as well as other tweaks), Deadly Reflex (a complex combat overhaul), Martigan's Monster Mod (adds literally hundreds of new monsters, many of which are hand made) and The Lost Spires (lengthy quest mod with a complex story about the ancient history of Tamriel). Oblivion XP replaces the skill leveling system with more traditional experience points (earned by killing monsters, completing quests, discovering locations, etc), and eliminates increasing attributes based on skills in favor of simply allocating points at every level however the player sees fit. Kvatch Rebuilt, which sees the burnt town restored and, well, rebuilt. Trade And Commerce lets the player own a shop to sell goods through rather than having to sell everything to stores. There are also mods which completely rewrite lore, such as A Path Of Dawn which lets the player join the Mythic Dawn, and many, many mods which expand on the Dark Brotherhood. Player homes, armor display mannequins, weapons and armor and even tweaks to the crime system, merchant system... beautification mods, mods to make the game run better on lower-end systems, level uncappers... if you can ask for it, there's a good chance a mod exists for it. Morroblivion which successfully converted the entire Morrowind game to the Oblivion. Skywind is a similar one which will again update Morrowind to Skyrim.

Worthy Opponent: While not directly stated as the reason, the Gray Fox effectively picks Sympathetic Inspector Antagonist Hieronymus Lex to serve as his head of security. Perhaps even more touching if you take this motivation is that the Gray Fox may have chosen Lex to defend his wife while he was absent. One of the reasons that Kathutet agrees to help you reach Mankar Camoran is because he considers you one of these for defeating his fellow Dremora during the siege of Kvatch.

Booze-Based Buff: All over the place. Ale, mead, beer, wine... there are over a dozen alcoholic items for the player to drink, each with different stat buffs and debuffs. Probably the most interesting of these is Shadowbanish Wine, a special rare vintage that can only be found in a handful of forts. It grants the player a special ability when drunk, but its quest involves turning in six bottles to an innkeeper instead of actually drinking them. (They actually respawn, but most players wouldn't know that unless they like to go back to places they've been and cleared out already.)

Low-Level Advantage
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_46fc2236
comment
Low-Level Advantage: Many players despise the leveling system used for enemies, firstly since it prevents any real advancement and secondly because it can actually cause a character to become weaker as they level "up". At higher levels, the later effect can cause enemies to become overpowered. The same mechanic can be exploited to become a Game-Breaker note by leveling up your combat skills (which happens independently of your character level, especially if you don't rest in beds or sleeping bags — in which case you'll never level up — or if you choose or build a class in such a way that your "major skills," for which each skill raised counts for 10% of the next level, don't include the combat skills you use the most. Enemies level up based on your character's level, not on your aggregate combat skills. Thankfully there is a difficulty slider if the game mechanic goes pathological. A popular mod, "Oscuro's Oblivion Overhaul", replaces this system with objective levels for enemies and loot, making player leveling meaningful.

Always Chaotic Evil: Several examples. Vampires. Since vampirism takes three days to fully take hold, and a very simple spell (or common potion) is all that's needed to arrest it, the majority of Tamrielic vampires wanted to turn into cannibalistic horrors. The Mythic Dawn. Killing the Emperor, worshipping Mehrunes Dagon, and plotting to summon him isn't a good indicator for... well, good.

Leaning on the Fourth Wall
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_4a3e547f
comment
Leaning on the Fourth Wall: A Dunmer alchemist in Skingrad identifies herself as being from House Hlaalu, before noting that such distinctions don't matter anymore. In the Shivering Isles expansion, there is a quest where you are tasked with finding unusual items for the local Museum of Oddities. One of the items that you can turn in is a mixing bowl: literally a bowl that you mix potions in. The item is unusual in terms of gameplay, since normally you use mortars, pestles and other alchemical apparatus in order to make potions rather than plain ol' bowls, but it's a perfectly ordinary item in terms of normal, everyday logic. The museum owner lampshades this by musing over the idea before giving in and accepting the item anyway, since she can tell you're trying.

Artificial Atmospheric Actions: Oh so much. In particular, procedurally generated NPC conversation can be a bit vapid. An especially amusing one can randomly occur while sneaking around in Bandit lairs. After the main quest is completed, there's a random chance that certain of the bandits might start singing a song in your honor. That won't stop them from trying to kill you once you're spotted. Lampshaded by some of the idle dialogue (which unfortunately you never hear due to an oversight. A mod that fixes that can be found here)

Spell Crafting

Spell Crafting: The game grants the ability to create custom spells to players who progress to a certain point in the Mages' Guild quest line or purchase the Wizard's Tower Downloadable Content. The player chooses a spell's range (self, touch, or ranged), area of effect (single-target or Splash Damage), duration, and effects, and the game automatically assigns a Magicka cost depending on how powerful the spell is, theoretically maintaining game balance. In practice, it is hilariously easy to design game-breakingly powerful spells by combining synergistic effects such as Weakness to Fire + Fire Damage, or assigning a one-second duration to spells that increase the Persuasion skill (which only works in dialogue, which pauses the game clock). The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall and The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind had similar features.

Vulnerable Civilians: Besides the usual fact that most NPCs are killable by the player, the game's artificial life system means that many characters (especially those who live in small settlements or commute outside the city walls) can be attacked and killed by random wandering monsters, or even in rare extreme cases starve to death or pick fights with each other.

Even after the release of Skyrim, it's still unclear if Mankar was lying or not.

Good Pays Better: There is a mission near the end of the game where you need to ask all the city rulers to send soldiers to protect the capital. Each ruler will assign you a mission that you need to finish first. If you go the extra mile and complete all the optional objectives, you will get more units to help fight and better rewards. The sidequest Sins of the Father has the player recover a stolen relic of Chorrol for a member of the Thieves' Guild. Giving it to him merely gives you a leveled amount of gold, while returning it to the castle rewards you the Escutcheon of Chorrol, one of, if not the best shield in the game with its high Reflect Damage enchantment.

But Thou Must!
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_504e271f
comment
But Thou Must!: One quest in Anvil involves investigating a series of robberies for the town watch. A group of women have been luring men to a remote cabin with promises of a good time, only to take all their possessions once the men have removed their gear. If you go to a local inn soon afterwards, you will meet the women. If the player character is male, they will attempt to lure him to the cabin with the aforementioned promises. If the PC is female, however, they will offer her a place in their gang. That evening, the quest calls for you to join them at the cabin. No matter whether the PC is male or female, your only dialogue options involve revealing your status as a mole, then taking out the whole gang by yourself in combat. As a female character (who may even be a member of the Thieves Guild and/or Dark Brotherhood and whose railroaded behavior therefore makes little sense), this seems like a waste of a good plot. An even worse example comes in the final stages of the Dark Brotherhood missions, after becoming a Silencer. Your orders are delivered to you via dead drops, giving your the location and name of your target(s). After the first two, there's a noticable change in the sound of the writing, from Lucien's professional but polite tone to outright glee and creepy familiarity. Also, the orders start giving the player explanations of the targets' "crimes" and details of personal lives, things that Lucien had never done prior unless it had relevance in the mission (ie, a hit was placed on a necromancer who he was trying to become a lich, making conventional killing methods difficult). But the worst parts? There's a massively obvious change in the handwriting of the orders, and you can even find Dark Brotherhood robes in the possession of your newest 'targets.' It'd be one thing for the game to put evidence in front of you and let you act on it, but you have no choice but to carry out six of these clearly forged orders before being confronted by Lucien and having already served as an accessory to the conspiracy that would get him killed. There's quite a lot of this in the game. Other examples feature a prank that Volanaro wants you to play on Jeanne Frasoric, the head of the Bruma Mages Guild, where the game doesn't give you the option to tell Jeanne about the prank; and a mission that the Blackwood Company undertakes to slaughter goblins where the goblins are actually innocent humans and there's no way to stop them from being cut down in their own home once the quest begins, whether you figure out what's going on or not - you can opt to run away and it'll complete the mission, but the people who come on the mission with you don't, and end up killing everyone.

Most of the city guards around Cyrodiil are actually a really, really nice and friendly bunch of guys - but break any law, even by accidentally picking something up off a shopkeeper's table, and they'll immediately go nuts and kill you without hesitation. You can, however, yield to them by blocking long enough. The Guards actually do a pretty good job of keeping things running smoothly, an entire guild of professional thieves has a hard time operating in the imperial city as a result. (Not that it stops the Player and the Grey Fox from stealing an Elder Scroll right out from under their noses.) The guards are so determined to hunt you down to face justice that there was even an account of one chasing you into an Oblivion gate. That is dedication!

Fantastic Racism
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_57b80b45
comment
Fantastic Racism: There actually isn't too much of this in Cyrodiil; it's a very racially diverse place and most folks are very accepting. Although you do get the occasional negative comment directed towards your character's race. The bottom of this page shows that character's base disposition towards you is partly based upon what race you play. Everyone hates the poor Dunmer and the poor Orcs. Countess Alessia Caro despises the beast races. Her speech towards you if you play a Khajit or Argonian barely even tries to disguise this. She also has a secret Torture Cellar made specifically for Argonians. Which makes it so much fun to kill her over and over again.elaborate Unless you've finished all the quests she's related to, at which point her NPC immortality vanishes and you can kill her for good. One minor NPC has a hobby of fostering discord between Argonians and Khajit. If you talk to him and you happen to belong to one of those two races, he'll tell you a member of the other race insulted you behind your back. Interesting variation in the quest Whodunit, where you're locked in a mansion with five people of various races you have to kill them, including a Breton, a Nord, a Redguard, a Dark Elf, and an Imperial. The Breton is racist against the Dark Elf, but the most extreme racism is displayed by the Redguard towards the Nord; which is to say that the worst hatred isn't between the fantasy races, but between the humans. The town of Leyawiin is actually quite racist between the Khajits and Argonians, who will actually tell racist jokes about each other. This makes sense, since the town lies directly between the borders of the respective races' homelands. The first character you meet in the game, Valen Dreth, has a different set of insults for you depending on the race you've chosen. In other words he's basically racist against everyone. So it's probably not surprising that someone put a hit on him. Even if you're a dark elf like him, he either promises to sleep with your wife (if you're male) or propositions you (if you're female). So the racism probably comes from just being a Jerkass. The developers actually programmed racism into the engine; every character has a setting for how much they like or dislike characters of a certain race. This doesn't normally appear in the game because the settings on most characters are insanely high. The mod Race Balancing Project actually tinkers with these settings, to make races that don't like each other act more snarky towards each other than the defaults.

Fantasy Counterpart Culture
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_57d43e40
comment
Fantasy Counterpart Culture: The Elder Scrolls loves this trope. The Nords are the obvious example. They're inspired by the Scandinavian peoples of northern Europe. The Redguards are Africans. Their Proud Warrior Race status and physical appearance were probably original inspired by the Masai, but the way their culture interacts with the Empire resembles the Sikhs' relationship with 19th-century imperial Britain. They have a bit of moors in them too. On that note, we haven't seen much of the Khajiit homeland but lore suggests they lead a tribal lifestyle similar to aborigines and pygmy peoples. Given the racism towards them, a tribal culture, a religion that differs from the Imperial norms more than a lot of others, an addiction to a liquid substance and a reputation for being thieves, one could also say they're fantasy Native-Americans (the theft part being casinos). The Imperials are mostly based on Romans (They have an Emperor, their armies are organised into Legions, their capital has a gladiator arena etc.). Bretons are French/Celts. Although we never see Akavir, it's apparently based on China and Japan. The (extinct) Dwemer become more and more like steampunk Assyrians with each game. The Dunmer have some traits from Semite people, complete with a religious exodus led by a prophet while they were still part of the Chimer race.

Deadly Environment Prison: The prisons in the Shivering Isles. They do confiscate your stuff, but your cell is not locked and you are free to try and brave the dungeon creatures with your bare hands and spells.

Disc-One Nuke
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_5b81ca8d
comment
Disc-One Nuke: It's relatively minor, but in the tutorial dungeon, after Blades Captain Renault is killed by some Mythic Dawn assassins, you can loot her body for her personal sword, a steel Akaviri katana. While by no means an incredibly impressive weapon, it's still an extremely good weapon for a level one character and can make mincemeat out of pretty much all the enemies in the dungeon, and could serve you well for the first few levels (and is also better than the other weapon she was holding, a steel short sword). Except that after the Emperor's death, when you talk to Baurus, he will thank you for keeping the sword and take it from you so it can be returned to Cloud Ruler Temple. And no, you can't just drop it before Baurus talks to you, because once the conversation is over, the sword simply disappears, meaning there really is no way to hold onto it. Once you gain access to spellcrafting, "Drain Health 100 Points for 1 second" is a One-Hit Kill on anything with less than 100 hit points. Drain effects are much cheaper than Damage effects, because once they wear off, the target gets their attributes back — unless they're already dead. Once the level scaling starts producing enemies with more than 100 hit points, its value decreases significantly, though it still makes a decent finishing move.

Empty Levels: Leveling up in a manner that is remotely intuitive - say, by choosing your main skills as those you expect to use often and leveling up when you have the option on the assumption that gaining a level will make you stronger - will result in a character's abilities increasing minutely while the enemies around you transform from annoyances to nightmares. Many people just bypass the whole aggravating "leveling up" process by never sleeping.

Cursed Item: The Staff of the Everscamp is one of the artefacts of Sheogorath, Daedric Prince of Madness, and seems to exist for the sole purpose of Trolling mortals. The staff's owner is constantly followed by four Scamps that give off a horrible smell, generally make the owner's life a misery and can't be permanently killed. Furthermore, the staff's owner feels a compulsion to keep it on their person at all times, and can only get rid of it if another person willingly agrees to become the staff's owner or by leaving it at one of Sheogorath's shrines.

Lady Land: The Shivering Isles' Daedric population is almost entirely female. Male Aureal/Mazken are a rare sight. Inverted with the Deadlands' population of Dremora, which are almost exclusively male, with only a few females existing anywhere (they are found as archers of the Markynaz rank) in the entire game and likely being more a result of an oversight than anything else (since they don't even have any voiced lines).

Meaningful Echo: An oddly effective combination with Welcome to Corneria: " The Emperor is dead, and so are his heirs. We're a Legion without a leader. The Blades were entrusted with our Lord's protection... and they failed." It starts out as a pedestrian bit of atmospheric worldbuilding, but begins sounding more and more like a well-aimed personal accusation in two ways: gradually, and then suddenly.

Kathutet, who you meet in Mankar Camoran's Paradise, is the friendliest (well, the least aggressive) Dremora in the game. In reality, he's just as rude towards mortals as any other Daedra, but he sees the player as a Worthy Opponent for defeating his comrades in the siege of Kvatch, and even agrees to provide you with the means to move on through the related quest, should you agree to do a favor for him.note As is the tradition, whether you side with or against him is Grey-and-Gray Morality: he wants you to release an Ax-Crazy, insanely brutal Xivilai and letting him butcher countless people who had just managed to seal him in the first place, but then again, those "people" are Mythic Dawn members who are trying to bring about The End of the World as We Know It. Of course, you can just kill him, and carry on like normal.

Technical Pacifist: You aren't allowed to kill people during Thieves Guild quests, but nothing says they can't die by any means that don't involve you. A good example of this is an early assignment where you need to raid a tomb with a guard. Opening the target grave will result in a ghost spawning, which isn't on the same side as the guard. If done at low levels (or in OOO) the guard won't have magic weapons or offensive spells and will easily die to the ghost.

Cooking Mechanics: The game includes bread, cheese, ale, carrots, stew, and various kinds of meat which can typically be eaten raw for a minor fatigue/stamina boost. Oblivion treats food (of all kinds) as a type of alchemical ingredient, which can be eaten raw or used to make potions; they have various effects, mostly restoring stamina.

Heroic Bastard

comment
Heroic Bastard: Martin is the bastard son of dear old Emperor Uriel, which is the reason why the assassins weren't as quick to get to him, so you had time to save his life. Yet despite the fact that almost nobody knew of his existence until now (even he wasn't aware that he was the Emperor's son until you told him), when everyone finds out they immediately kneel before him and treat him with total respect as their Emperor. This is derived from two sources; in the case of the blades, its the word of their Grand Master which convinces them. For everyone else, its most likely that Martin can wear the Amulet of Kings, something which is physically impossible to do without fulfilling certain conditions (such as being Dragonborn or descended from a Dragonborn) that amount to divine right. It probably helps that all the other candidates are dead, and without an Emperor on the throne the world is (literally) going to hell.

Sympathetic Inspector Antagonist
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_7ac1f1e5
comment
Sympathetic Inspector Antagonist: Hieronymus Lex - one of the Imperial City's Watch Captains - is the Sympathetic Inspector Antagonist to the Gray Fox, leader of the Thieves' Guild in Cyrodiil. In fact, he is one of the only members of the Imperial Watch who even believes the Thieves' Guild exists, and has dedicated himself to becoming a perpetual, overzealous thorn in its side. He mellows considerably after you inform him that he's been reassigned to the city of Anvil... although not without a brief rant about how the Gray Fox must have been behind that, too. He's right. Although for fun, once you get the Gray Fox cowl, you can put it on in front of him and have him sputter in disbelief at finally catching him. So many layers of irony were in that 'reassignment'. On one hand, Lex is now unwittingly working for the Gray Fox. On the other hand, it was the Gray Fox who, after so many years of cat-n-mouse evasion between them, hand-picked him to be his head of security. This actually reveals a huge respect for the man.

Cosmic Retcon/Hand Wave/A Wizard Did It: A rare In-Universe one. Behold the kingdom of the Red King once jungled! Apparently, a god (or the White-Gold Tower, or the Emperor, or the Emperor using the White-Gold Tower, because canon and lore are confusing) decided that Cyrodiil should be a deciduous forest rather than a rainforest like in previous installments of the series. Uriel Septim should have a head of long, flowing silver hair, rather than the perfectly smooth and hairless scalp he sported in Daggerfall (Ironically looking more like Patrick Stewart than the version he played.) Ocato, who also sported a smooth scalp and a badass posture in Daggerfall, suddenly turned into an Altmer in Oblivion. It is implied the dungeon in Oblivion is supposed to be the same one as in Arena. Both games take place in sewers underneath the palace (Though in Oblivion it's only the very last area) not counting the one zombie in Oblivion and the "Random Thieves" in Arena. All the enemies are rats and goblins. And the mentioned thieves only appear if you stand in one place too long, where do they come from? They come out of hidden doors in the walls, which the Mythic Dawn used when assassinating the Emperor.

Fetch Quest: There aren't too many of these, thankfully. One, the Cheydinhal Mages' Guild quest is rather an egregious example: you are sent to retrieve something from a well just outside the building. When you return, less than a minute later, you are informed that a heated argument took place and the guild leader abandoned his post. (It Makes Sense in Context, though.) Nerussa's quest to retrieve 6 bottles of Shadowbanish wine requires you to go to different ruined forts to retrieve them. There are only 8 different forts that have them, of which there is around fifty forts, so you have to find them by trial and error from the different forts. If you don't have a guide. Thankfully the bottles respawn, so you could just raid one fort 3 times for the wine. The Battlehorn Castle and Frostcrag Spire add-ons add one non-respawning bottle each of the wine, as well. Umbacano's quest, "The Collector" requires you to go through ten different Ayleid ruins to get the ten statues.

Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_7fbb2a3
comment
Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: During roughly the first half of the Fighter's Guild questline, you and another, high ranking guildmate help the Guildmaster's timid son grow in confidence to prepare him for when he inherits the guild. The good news is that it works, the bad news is that he becomes a little too confident, boldly charges into a cave full of trolls, and gets slaughtered when he gets mixed up in a fight between the trolls and a group Blackwood Company mercenaries under the effects of Hist. The Guildmaster is not pleased by this. An earlier quest has another cave full of trolls that will probably get him (and you) knocked out instantly. It's considered a better idea to go into the cave beforehand and kill them one by one first. In the "Where Spirits Have Lease" quest, you end up playing right into the monster of the sidequest's hands. Thankfully, you're able to correct your error immediately afterwards.

Dysfunction Junction: Most aren't given any background story, but several character's pasts are implied to be this. Most notably with members of the Dark Brotherhood (which is fitting because it explains how they became psychopaths to begin with). Skingrad. The blacksmith's an alcoholic, the town trader's in a loveless common-law marriage with his maid, one alchemist's a necrophiliac, the other hasn't been outside for years, and there's a paranoid wood elf convinced that half the city's population is trying to kill him. Then there's the Count and his right-hand man... Yet despite everything, Skingrad is noted as being one of the most prosperous counties in Cyrodiil.

Large Ham: Sheogorath is quite a captivating one. Nords and Orcs are whole races of hams. Imperial Guards. You know you're a ham when upon seeing someone swipe a grape, you shout, "Stop right there, criminal scum!" The Arena announcer is made of this trope, although in his line of work it's sort of expected. The male Dremora, in addition to being fierce warriors, are exceptionally hammy when it comes to their various battle-cries. It certainly helps that they're voiced by the same actor as the Imperial males. Averted with the rare female Dremora, which due to an oversight in the game's development, are completely silent. Unsurprisingly, all of the above, except the Nords and Orcs, are voiced by the same actor, Wes Johnson.

comment
Rewarded as a Traitor Deserves: Pulled on Myvryna Arano by Hieronymus Lex in the early Thieves Guild questline; Lex had been using Myvryna to spy on the Guild, but it turns out the Grey Fox had cottoned on to her, so he creates a fake contract to have the player character steal a bust of the late Countess of Cheydinhal Lathasa Indarys from the Chapel Undercroft there. When Lex uses this as an excuse to order a crackdown on the Waterfront, the PC is directed by Methredhel to drop the bust in a cabinet in Myvryna's home and get Lex to check it out. When confronted by this evidence, Lex arrests her on the spot; if she did steal the bust, then she's been playing him, but if she's telling the truth (that the PC standing two feet away watching this is a member of the Thieves Guild and is setting her up), she's still of no use to him, because it means the Grey Fox knows about her. So either way, off to jail she goes.

Crystal Dragon Jesus: Oddly enough, the Nine Divines, considering how previous games depicted the religion (particularly in Daggerfall) as very polytheistic Greco-Roman religion. This was also hit the hardest with the Nibenese-Cyrodiil (the Imperials who live in the east), in a very bizarre form of cultural Flanderization. Previously, the Nibenese where described as esoteric and philosophizing, with elaborate customs and devote to various religions, cults, and ancestor worship. By the time of Oblivion though, they were described as simply chapel-going and doing religious services on Sundays, complementing the now christianity-based worshipping of Nine Divines.

Exactly What It Says on the Tin

In the Shivering Isles expansion, there is a quest where you are tasked with finding unusual items for the local Museum of Oddities. One of the items that you can turn in is a mixing bowl: literally a bowl that you mix potions in. The item is unusual in terms of gameplay, since normally you use mortars, pestles and other alchemical apparatus in order to make potions rather than plain ol' bowls, but it's a perfectly ordinary item in terms of normal, everyday logic. The museum owner lampshades this by musing over the idea before giving in and accepting the item anyway, since she can tell you're trying.

What Happened to the Mouse?
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_863fa679
comment
What Happened to the Mouse?: Jagar Tharn's child. According to an ingame book, he fathered a child with Barenziah, the queen of Morrowind, when he seduced her in order to fool her into showing him the way to the Staff of Chaos. Then this child just fades into space ace. Also, lore says that after the events of the very first game, the Staff of Chaos was put away somewhere in White Gold Tower, yet in the game it is nowhere to be found. Players finally got an answer to this in Skyrim. It wasn't actually Tharn's child; he hired a famous thief to seduce Barenziah. Finishing the Thieves Guild quest line in Skyrim gives access to the book which explains that the Dragonborn has actually been working with the grandchild of Barenziah and the thief for several missions. In-game, several quest-related NPCs are usually disabled and removed from the game once their related quest is finished. Often, this is done without any in-universe explanation whatsoever. The most egregious examples are J'Skar (the sole survivor of the attack on the Bruma Mages Guild), and Nelrene (the Dark Seducer involved in the conspiracy in the "Lady of Paranoia" quest, even though she ends up helping you in the end).

There is an explanation for the way a one handed weapon seems to "hover" over a character's hip: armors in Oblivion are thick and padded, and most of them also have belts that are supposedly there for the sword's scabbard/blunt weapon's handle to hang on to. A character wearing nothing but mere clothing (which isn't as thick as, say, a suit of leather armor) will have his weapon "hovering" over their hip, because if they were sticking to it, they would clip through thicker armors.

Stumbled Into the Plot: Played with. The protagonist is a nobody in prison and happens to cross paths with The Emperor, who is trying to escape assassins, thrusting them into the main quest of preventing The End of the World as We Know It. However, how they managed to get into that cell (it's never supposed to be occupied) is never answered...

Back from the Dead: The player, at the end "Knights of the Nine." You think that merely getting hit repeatedly with a magic sword and lightning bolts, then falling thousands of feet onto the ground, and being proclaimed dead by all his friends who personally saw his mangled body can keep the Divine Crusader down? Bah! In Camoran's Paradise you'll probably notice that everyone there pops up again if you kill them. Created to be a paradise for his followers, there is no lasting death there. Of course, for many of them there is a sting there.

Joke Item
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_8af721f7
comment
Joke Item: Lord Rugdumph's sword. First off, it's designed like a claymore and is used as a two-handed weapon, yet both its length and stats are more fit for a longsword. Additionally, it's statistically no better than an average silver longsword, which you are able to find as early as 4th level, or even 1st if you manage to take it from a guard's inventory. The enchantments aren't of much use either: Absorb Speechcraft 5 points for 5 seconds is completely worthless (it's highly unlikely you'd be able to first attack someone to absorb their Speechcraft and then start a conversation with someone else before the effect wears off, and even then, 5 points makes no notable difference whatsoever), and while Silence for 5 seconds could be potentially useful against mages, the duration is so short that you'd have to continuously hit them with this sword until they die, at which point you'd probably waste a considerable amount of the remaining charges of the enchantment. However, the joke item status seems justified, considering who gives it to you...

Replaced with Replica: Umbacano is a collector obsessed with artifacts of the Ayleid Abusive Precursors, who hires you to "obtain" a specific Ayleid crown from a rival. You can fool him with a similar crown from a nearby Ayleid ruin instead. In his next quest, he tries to absorb the power of an Ayleid throne to usher in a new age of Elf rule; if he uses the decoy crown, instead of Super Empowering him, the throne electrocutes him on the spot.

Breaching the Wall
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_9123208f
comment
Breaching the Wall: The results are seen after the fact. Mehrunes Dagon's forces attacked Kvatch with a Daedric Siege Crawler that blasted open the city's walls. They attempt it again at Bruma later in the story, but the Player Character closes the Oblivion gate on the Crawler, destroying it before it can reach Bruma. The whole game is actually predicated on this trope, as the assassination of The Emperor Uriel Septim VII and his heirs allows the Daedric armies to breach the mystical barrier between their native Oblivion and the material plane of Nirn and to stage an invasion through hundreds of Oblivion Gates that opened across Tamriel as a result. The main quest of the game revolves around finding a way to mend the veil between Nirn and Oblivion and thus to prevent any more Gates from opening.

Smashing Hallway Traps of Doom: Lots of these, mostly in various Ayleid Ruins such as Nenyond Twyll. In the Mages Guild mission "Liberation or Apprehension?", Fithragaer, the NPC you're (meant to be) escorting charges straight into one and dies instantly. If he doesn't he'll just stand there, just in front of the trap as being trapped in the ruins broke his tiny Bosmer brain. When the quest is done, he'll walk slowly to the exit and will most likely die for real this time.

Leeroy Jenkins: Pretty much every NPC in the game, but most notably the one in the Mages' Guild quest who tells you to follow him and runs straight into a deathtrap not 30 seconds after meeting. There's also the son of the Count of Cheydinhal, who blindly ran into an Oblivion gate and got most of his men killed. The Bruma Guard in the Main Quest are guilty of this. Why can’t you LIVE? Burd survives only because the game deems him necessary. When fightng in the arena, the best strategy is to stay in the starting area and pick off your enemies with a bow and arrow as they run directly toward you instead of, say, hiding behind one of the many pillars in the arena. Kathutet invokes this on the Player if he/she chooses to fight him for the Bands of the Chosen instead of doing his task.

Big Bad

comment
This is Big Bad Mankor Camoran's plot for the game: he murders Emperor Uriel Septim and his three sons, which means that there is no one to wear the Amulet of Kings, a magical artifact that was granted to the original emperor of Tamriel by Physical God Talos. The Amulet is a Cosmic Keystone that needs to be worn by someone of royal blood to keep the Dragonfires, magical flames that protect Tamriel from evil creatures known as Daedra, burning. It turns out that Camoran struck a bargain with Mehrunes Dagon, the Daedric Prince of Destruction: if he removed the Dragonfires from the equation and allowed Dagon to invade the physical realm, he'd take Camoran, his children, and their followers to "paradise." The player character's main quest involves finding the emperor's illegitimate son and elevating him to the throne, preventing Mehrunes Dagon from destroying all of creation.

Do Not Taunt Cthulhu: Thieves love to attempt to steal things from Nocturnal, the Daedric goddess of the night (and therefore, a crucial part of their jobs). Two thieves succeed and the player recovers the artifact, the Grey Fox exists because of this, and one in a book has a fate that's not elaborated on when she gets caught past being consumed by an angry Nocturnal's shadows.

Hyperspace Arsenal: While you're not able to carry an infinite amount of stuff, you can pack several hundred pounds worth of stuff into an invisible pocket. Each item has a weight value, and based on your Strength stat, you can carry so much stuff (1 point of Strength = 5 pounds of encumbrance). Warriors who raise strength can carry more things (up to 500 pounds with a max 100 strength), and spells/effects such as Feather exist to lighten your load even further. Also, being highly skilled (Expert or Master rank) in either of the Light or Heavy armor attributes decreases the weight of armor you have equipped - at Master skill rank, heavy type armor will weigh nothing when worn. It's possible to actually have more items in your inventory than you can carry, but you will not be able to move, and negative effects such as Burden or Drain/Damage Strength can lower encumbrance. The only visible items in your total inventory are whatever you have equipped at the time. note But this largely seems to affect the player only. NPCs usually only carry a limited stock of goods and rarely pick up anything, and even Burden spells are rarely effective to keep them in place. This is taken to extremes due to a bug that effects the Duelists in the Shivering Isles. Each one carries up to several thousand copies of their weapon in inventory with no ill effects, though trying to take all those weapons for yourself (pickpocketing/character death) can either leave you over-encumbered, or glitch the game severely. The Unofficial Patch fixes this.

Foreshadowing

Foreshadowing: Some people will talk about unrest in Summerset about an Aldmeri uprising. Skyrim expands on this with the Aldmeri Dominion. Don't forget Umbacano, who was going to gain the power of an ancient Ayleid king, solely to restore his own kind to power and subjugate everyone else... all while getting you to do all the hard work for him! It was already hinted at pretty strongly that a few Altmer wanted the old ways back. There is a piece of rather heavy foreshadowing that is possible to miss during the Dark Brotherhood Questline. If you unlock a barrel in J'Ghasta's house or the portrait safe in Alval Uvani's place, you will find a set of Black Hand robes and a copy of The Five Tenets. These are early indicators that you are being set up to kill the members of the Black Hand.

Continuity Nod
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_9dab0a6e
comment
Continuity Nod: The "Hero of Daggerfall" and Jagar Tharn are mentioned in passing many times, in both in-game books and by a few certain characters. The province of Morrowind has abolished slavery (according to NPC chatter). These examples are notable because most content in Oblivion is self-contained (though this is by no means an exhaustive list). Also, the Utherfrykte Matron. The Utherfrykte was an obscure Bonus Boss in the "Bloodmoon" expansion for Morrowind. In relation to this is an NPC from Bloodmoon, the foxy Svenja Snow-Song, who became your character's second in command at the Solstheim Mead Hall. In Oblivion, you can find her husband's journal at Dive Rock, detailing numerous nightmares she had regarding the creatures. Having enough of it, the two decided to venture to Cyrodiil to slay their Matron, only for Svenja to get eaten alive by the creature before getting off a shot. Her husband watches in horror, and is mortally wounded soon after, being able to make it back to their nearby camp to finish writing. You can find the husband's body and journal at the camp, and can also slay the Matron once and for all. Inside its body is Svenja's bow... along with her mostly digested corpse. One off hand but memorable downer instance of this is an NPC in the Imperial Capital who was at Raven's Rock, the ebony mining settlement from Morrowind's expansion. He left when the money dried up, meaning that the settlement canonically fails, though not entirely, as it's still (barely) populated by the time the events of Dragonborn roll around. A snippet of info you get from a random loading screen says "No one has escaped from the Imperial Prison in over 40 years, since the days of Jagar Tharn and the Imperial Simulacrum". The Eternal Champion escaped from the Imperial Prison during the late Imperial Simulacrum, just under 40 years ago. Another couple of Morrowind examples: You can overhear two Elven NPCs talking about the Nerevarine having left on an expedition to Akavir. You can also over hear mention of "St. Jiub, who drove all the cliff racers from Morrowind."

Un-person: Putting on the Gray Cowl of Nocturnal makes the wearer one. To clarify, the cowl actually removes all traces of the wearer from the memory of reality itself. In other words, reality freaking forgets that you exist once you put in on. This was a curse put on the cowl by its original owner, Nocturnal, as punishment for its theft. It's revealed at the end of the Thieves Guild questline that the Gray Fox's ultimate goal was to obtain an Elder Scroll so he could rewrite history and undo the curse. Afterwards you're given the cowl as a reward, with the effect still intact. Thankfully your identity is restored whenever you take it off.

Our Vampires Are Different
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_9f63d4f1
comment
Our Vampires Are Different: Not drinking blood makes a vampire PC stronger and grants them more abilities, but with more weaknesses to fire and sunlight. A vampire who has fed recently has no problem blending into society, but one who has not fed for several days becomes exceeding gaunt and pale with deep red eyes, making their condition obvious to anyone else. One vampire you encounter who has been trapped and gone decades without feeding has gone irrevocably insane and attacks anybody on sight. Another you may encounter in a quest to find a vampirism cure hasn't been able to come to terms with her condition and refused to feed, falling into a coma as a result. Also, you get infected with the vampire virus if bitten by an NPC vampire, but for some reason NPCs don't get infected when you bite them. Cyrodiil vampires are different from Morrowind vampires, as they were from Daggerfall vampires. An in-game book confirms there are regional breeds of vampires, and Cyrodiil was once home to other bloodlines that have long since been wiped out by the currently dominant order. Vicente Valtieri has a severe allergy to garlic, but this trait is unique among vampires. Nonetheless, the "vampires are weakened by garlic" myth still exists in Cyrodiil.

One-Hit Kill
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_a414c3f0
comment
Once you gain access to spellcrafting, "Drain Health 100 Points for 1 second" is a One-Hit Kill on anything with less than 100 hit points. Drain effects are much cheaper than Damage effects, because once they wear off, the target gets their attributes back — unless they're already dead. Once the level scaling starts producing enemies with more than 100 hit points, its value decreases significantly, though it still makes a decent finishing move.

Randomly Generated Levels

comment
Randomly Generated Levels: Like Daggerfall, Bethesda built the non-quest non-Oblivion dungeons out of existing dungeons pieces and randomly spliced them into a "new" dungeon that gets used for every copy's instance of that dungeon. Unlike Daggerfall, you aren't busy getting lost, and the dungeon pieces are much more distinct looking, making it very noticeable (indeed, there were a few instance of "leftovers" from quests in some dungeons in early versions). Additionally all spawns and loot are randomly chosen from leveled lists. The terrain is also computer generated through simulated soil erosion. It sounds neat, but it is very noticeably featureless as a result.

When you ask him about Chorrol, he will remark that although it's a nice place, the women there are kind of snooty and not very nice. If you then mention Emfrid, the owner of the local lower-class inn, he will remark that he goes instead to Oak & Crosier, since as the captain of the guard he should visit more upper-class places... and upon saying that, he will realize that he's acting in the exact same way he's accusing the Chorrol women of acting, and subsequently concede that he should probably start paying more attention to Emfrid.

And I Must Scream
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_a8a04f6f
comment
And I Must Scream: A Wizard stole from Vaermina the Daedric Prince of Nightmares. Now he's trapped within nightmares for all eternity. You have the option to Mercy Kill him. One merchant in Crucible also suggests doing this to you via Chronomancy- trapping your body in time while keeping their mind intact. Thankfully, you can't accept his offer. Mankar Camoran's followers give their lives to defend his cause and end up in his Paradise, which looks like a forested Eden... but it isn't. They're essentially trapped in a fiery Hell, being killed over and over and OVER again, and will never be free from the cycle until you kill their leader. Mehrunes Dagon himself is stuck in this situation. As the Daedric Prince of Destruction, his only purpose in life is to kill, maim, and obliterate everything in his path. The problem? He's stuck in his own plane of Oblivion, where nothing can be permanently destroyed. No matter what he does, Dagon can't eradicate Daedra or anything generated within his plane (they just keep reviving), essentially rendering him powerless in his own kingdom. That's why he's so eager to get to Cyrodil: that way, the Prince of Destruction can actually, you know, destroy things. Speaking of Daedric princes, Jyggalag and Sheogorath suffered this. The other Princes, fearful and envious of the former's power of Order and growing influence, combined their own abilities to transform him into the exact opposite of his aspect—namely, Madness. To make matters worse, they deliberately eradicated the victims' memory of this, trapping them in an endless cycle wherein Sheogorath senses the forces of Order are coming, prepares for them, remembers that he himself is Jyggalag, and transforms briefly, only for the whole routine to start up again. It isn't until the Player Character comes along and defeat Jyggalag in battle that the spell is lifted, allowing him to return to his former self. The Gray Fox specifically Emer Dareloth, the first Gray Fox stole the Cowl of Nocturnal from Nocturnal herself. As a Daedric Prince, she cursed the cowl to literally eradicate its user from history, meaning that no one can remember who he really is or even his own name. The Gray Fox is trapped in a world of people who can never know anything about him, rendering him unable to form permanent connections and separating the current one, Corvus Umbranox, the Count of Anvil, from his wife—he could stand in front of her and she wouldn't be able to recognize him. The Gray Fox earns his happy ending when, with the player's help, he figures out how to break the curse and finally rejoins the world.

To do that, they are trying to break down the barriers between Nirn and Oblivion by murdering the Emperor and all his heirs, who are essential to keeping the barriers in place.

Evil Weapon
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_abbe5875
comment
Evil Weapon: Dawn/Duskfang, which grows in power for every 12 enemies it kills, although this has to be done every day and night and only affects it after dawn or dusk, hence the name. This weapon is actually four weapons in one, two of which are upgraded or "superior" versions of the "base weapons" (Dawnfang and Duskfang). The sword "morphs" into a form appropriate for the current time of day, and if you've slaughtered enough enemies before that point, it will morph into the superior version of its counterpart. For example, Dawnfang will morph into Superior Duskfang at night.

Fair Play Whodunit: One quest has you investigating who stole a precious painting from the Countess of Chorrol. All of the clues you need to find the culprit are available, and indeed have to be found to complete the mission with the maximum reward. However, even before you've found the pieces of evidence, there's a giveaway clue that lets you solve the case earlier: three of the four suspects' alibis refer to the rain outside the castle the night of the theft, while the fourth—and the guilty party—mentions that she was making star charts, which would have been impossible during a cloudy storm.

There is a piece of rather heavy foreshadowing that is possible to miss during the Dark Brotherhood Questline. If you unlock a barrel in J'Ghasta's house or the portrait safe in Alval Uvani's place, you will find a set of Black Hand robes and a copy of The Five Tenets. These are early indicators that you are being set up to kill the members of the Black Hand.

When Mannimarco attacks Bruma's guildhall, his invisibility mastery is what makes him the sole survivor. Or maybe not. His comments after you kill the necromancer looking for him sound like Mannimarco let him live to send a message to the rest of the guild.

I'm summoned. Your skill in repetition is truly astounding." Kathutet, the Dremora guarding the entrance to the Forbidden Grotto, is this in contrast to the rest of the Dremora you encounter in the game.

Evil Is Sterile: In the Shivering Isles expansion, the amazingly creepy Knights of Order and their master Jyggalag are said to have no original thoughts whatsoever. Their fighting style reflects this - Jyggalag uses some spells, but the knights just swing swords at you until you or they die. The reason for this is that Jyggalag is the Daedric Prince of Order, anything that's wild and unpredictable is wrong in his eyes which is why he was turned into Sheogorath.

Retcon: In previous games and source material, Cyrodiil was described as a much more exotic and unique place than how it was potrayed in Oblivion, with a much more fancier and regal looking Imperial City with waterways much like Venice, singing priest clothed by moths; an esoteric, Chinese/Japanese-inspired culture in Nibenay regions; and it was overall a Fantasy Counterpart Culture for Roman Empire combined with East Asia. In Oblivion, this was mostly abandonded in favour of traditional Medieval European Fantasy with only dubiously Roman-like elements and the rest was vaguely handwaved as being outdated propaganda.

Dungeon Bypass

comment
Dungeon Bypass: In many forts and Ayleid ruins, the final door, after the boss mob and reward chest, leads to a ledge overlooking the entrance, so that you can jump down and leave immediately rather than have to backtrack through an empty dungeon. With sufficient Acrobatics skill (it can be fortified over 200 if necessary), you can jump up to the ledge and work backwards, surprising the boss from behind, and immediately claiming the most lucrative loot. A different but significantly easier one is at Fort Farragut, a.k.a. where Lucien Lachance makes his hideout. Don't want to hack through all those skeletons? Just go to the big, hollow tree on the northeastern side of the fort to drop straight down on top of Lucien himself.

The Disposition can be raised with a minigame accessible from the dialogue screen, in which the PC must use four actions (Admire, Boast, Joke, and Coerce) in any order to gain a Disposition boost. Each NPC reacts differently to different actions (increasing or decreasing Disposition by different amounts), and the "weight" of each action shifts randomly every time one is used (higher weight increases the results, whether positive or negative). A high Speechcraft skill increases Disposition gains from liked actions and reduces losses from disliked ones.

Berserk Button: Most of the city guards around Cyrodiil are actually a really, really nice and friendly bunch of guys - but break any law, even by accidentally picking something up off a shopkeeper's table, and they'll immediately go nuts and kill you without hesitation. You can, however, yield to them by blocking long enough. The Guards actually do a pretty good job of keeping things running smoothly, an entire guild of professional thieves has a hard time operating in the imperial city as a result. (Not that it stops the Player and the Grey Fox from stealing an Elder Scroll right out from under their noses.) The guards are so determined to hunt you down to face justice that there was even an account of one chasing you into an Oblivion gate. That is dedication! Melus Petilius, a retired paladin, has sworn off violence, but will recant his oath if you attack him at his 'sacred place', the grave of his wife.

Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: Martin's fate after becoming an avatar of Akatosh to defeat Dagon. This also happens to members of the Mythic Dawn who are killed in the mortal world. Rather than actually dying, their souls are transported to Mankar Camoran's realm of Paradise where they become immortal. Of course, once you destroy Paradise near the end of the main quest, then they all die for real. At the end of Shivering Isles you become Sheogorath and eventually rule his realm of Oblivion. Though the transformation doesn't take its full permanent form until you meet him in Skyrim.

Anti-Hero: You can potentially be one, if you gain a lot of infamy points by doing evil things and generally be a dick, at the same time that you're saving the empire. You can also go right past this, straight into Villain Protagonist. The game is sometimes criticized for allowing players to be the Thieves', Mages', Dark Brotherhood's, AND Fighters' guild leader while also being a vampire, god of madness, hunter of Vampires, Arena Champion, Hero of the Imperium, AND the man who serves food to prisoners for 5 gold a week.

After a certain point in the main quest, the members of the covert Mythic Dawn cult who assassinated the Emperor have low enough disposition to attack you on sight... in broad daylight, in a city, with dozens of guards around. note Or who knows, maybe they just see it as a Xanatos Gambit. Either they succeed in killing you, a HUGE victory to their cause, or they fail and go to Paradise for immortal life and great rewards, returning to rule Tamriel when Mehrunes Dagon wins.

Irony: It is revealed that Gaiden Shinji, whose "The best techniques are passed down by the survivors" quote started Arena, was not a survivor. People still think he's amazing though. During A Shadow Over Hackdirt, the villagers plan to sacrifice Seed-Neeus' daughter, Dar-Ma, an Argonian. Given the story that inspired the quest, and the fact that the Argonians are a mix between Lizard Folk and Fish People, someone on the writing team had a sense of humour.

One Dark Brotherhood quest sees the player character given a contract to wipe out an entire family line.

The player even has the opportunity to mock the kids about how much their mother bled before killing them, too.

Shout-Out
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_c75df49a
comment
Shout-Out: Explaining the literally split personalities in Split, a townsman says, "A Wizard Did It." The luck spell "The Dark One's own luck," is a reference to The Wheel of Time. There is a Dark Brotherhood quest in which you have to join a party with a group of strangers but only to kill all the others off without exposing your real identity, called "Whodunit?" One of the many quests involving the retrieval of an artifact from a ruin is called "Nothing You Can Possess." You might be able to guess how things play out. The quest called "A Shadow Over Hackdirt", which involves you going into a rundown and very much xenophobic village with suspicious residents who worship something called "The Deep Ones" and turns out to make human sacrifices. Heck, you even find a Cthulhu Bible. This is possibly also a reference to the Bethesda-published game Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth, which was released a few months before Oblivion and was also an adaptation of The Shadow Over Innsmouth. To enter the Shivering Isles, you have to enter the mouth of madness. One of the first Fighter's Guild missions you can get is a shout out, and Lampshade Hanging to the first Fighter's Guild mission you can get in Balmora, in Morrowind. In Morrowind, you're contracted to kill the rats in a woman's basement. In Oblivion, you're contracted to defend them. In Shivering Isles, you can find a chest labeled "The Dark Chest of Wonders," and it contains the Ring of the Oceanborn. Umbra is a black, soul-eating sword whose owner despises herself. Sound familiar? When a gang of thieves take over "The Bloated Float" inn-boat while you're aboard, you have to fight and/or talk your way past all of them. One of the dialogue options is to claim that you're the ship's cook. One wardrobe item that can be found or purchased is a pair of blue suede shoes. In one quest, you have to try and catch a man who's supplying items to merchants by stealing said items from the dead. As part of your proof, you find a book that lists the recently deceased and any items of value they own. One of the names in the list is Oford Gabings - an anagram of Frodo Baggins - and the items listed are ones that he carried in Lord of the Rings: "Travel Cloak with Silver and Green Leaf Fastener", "Enchanted Shortsword with Inlaid Writing", "Leather Bound Travel Journal", and "Gold Ring with Inscription (Cursed?)" During one of the Dark Brotherhood quests, the player must venture to a lighthouse with a basement. There player finds a decapitated head in a state of decay sitting on a plate called "Mother's Head", which is a reference to Friday the 13th Part 2. The Staff of Everscamp quest, "Whom Gods Annoy", is a Literary Allusion Title to the Star Trek: The Original Series episode "Whom Gods Destroy". In Shivering Isles, upon meeting Sheogorath for the first time, during one of the possible discussions, he makes it clear that "You wouldn't like me when I'm bored." Two of the Thieves Guild members are named Jair and Corvus.

My Species Doth Protest Too Much: Count Janus Hassildor is pretty much the only vampire that doesn't want to kill you and drink your blood. Kathutet, who you meet in Mankar Camoran's Paradise, is the friendliest (well, the least aggressive) Dremora in the game. In reality, he's just as rude towards mortals as any other Daedra, but he sees the player as a Worthy Opponent for defeating his comrades in the siege of Kvatch, and even agrees to provide you with the means to move on through the related quest, should you agree to do a favor for him.note As is the tradition, whether you side with or against him is Grey-and-Gray Morality: he wants you to release an Ax-Crazy, insanely brutal Xivilai and letting him butcher countless people who had just managed to seal him in the first place, but then again, those "people" are Mythic Dawn members who are trying to bring about The End of the World as We Know It. Of course, you can just kill him, and carry on like normal.

Family Extermination: Two exemples: One Dark Brotherhood quest sees the player character given a contract to wipe out an entire family line. The first target is the clan matriarch, who believes the player to be a courier that will deliver birthday presents to her children—so she's prepared a detailed list of their locations and schedules. The player even has the opportunity to mock the kids about how much their mother bled before killing them, too. This is Big Bad Mankor Camoran's plot for the game: he murders Emperor Uriel Septim and his three sons, which means that there is no one to wear the Amulet of Kings, a magical artifact that was granted to the original emperor of Tamriel by Physical God Talos. The Amulet is a Cosmic Keystone that needs to be worn by someone of royal blood to keep the Dragonfires, magical flames that protect Tamriel from evil creatures known as Daedra, burning. It turns out that Camoran struck a bargain with Mehrunes Dagon, the Daedric Prince of Destruction: if he removed the Dragonfires from the equation and allowed Dagon to invade the physical realm, he'd take Camoran, his children, and their followers to "paradise." The player character's main quest involves finding the emperor's illegitimate son and elevating him to the throne, preventing Mehrunes Dagon from destroying all of creation.

Video Game Caring Potential: Depending on how attached you become to some of the NPCs, you may reload certain battles multiple times to ensure that they survive past the time they're flagged as no longer essential, up to and including the ending.

Informed Ability: The main quest contains many claims the empire is in chaos with the Emperor's assassination. The game fails to show any actual chaos outside of Kvatch. Although it is mentioned that other cities throughout Tamriel are being invaded by the Daedra, or other events like distant battles involving Nords and Orcs, or groups of wizards causing trouble in Summerset Isle, you don't get to see too much of the former and none of the latter two, since the game's boundaries confine you to Cyrodiil. An advertisement for the Red Diamond says it has the best guards, but it in fact has no guards. In fact, it's one of the easiest and most profitable places to rob, as it's the only store with inventory of any value that respawns (due to being in containers that are easily opened with the easily stolen key).

comment
Countess Alessia Caro despises the beast races. Her speech towards you if you play a Khajit or Argonian barely even tries to disguise this. She also has a secret Torture Cellar made specifically for Argonians. Which makes it so much fun to kill her over and over again.elaborate Unless you've finished all the quests she's related to, at which point her NPC immortality vanishes and you can kill her for good.

Flat-Earth Atheist: Zigzagged with Else God-Hater in Skingrad. Her involvement with the Mythic Dawn might make this seem like a subversion, but she does mention that she has no trouble believing the Daedric Princes exist, on the grounds that "they do things. Bad things, mostly, but things you can see." Yet she isn't convinced by the actions of the Nine Divines despite the consistent and measurable magical effects caused by praying at altars.

Escort Mission
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_cfda0ecb
comment
Escort Mission: A few, but by far the most annoying one is the quest The Wayward Knight. Farwil Indarys, your escortee and complete Leeroy, will run into battle against enemies far stronger than he, and even worse will completely ignore environmental dangers. He'll even follow enemies off cliffs! The higher your level, the worse these quests become, to the point of Fake Difficulty. While monsters will level, and even get replaced by classes of newer and more powerful monsters, the people you escort... don't. Some quests are made easier by essential characters, as they don't die when the overpowered monsters beat on them, but you still have to kill everything and then wait for them to wake up to push forward into another fight. The Mages Guild quest "Liberation or Apprehension?" thankfully subverts this. You are meant to escort your fellow mage Fithragaer and find Mucianus Allias and bring them back. The former will most likely get killed by a huge trap that pushes the floor up to a spike ceiling and the latter suffered a fate worse than death. All that is required to finish the quest is explore the ruins, fight some monsters, grab some loot, and further the subplot.

An especially amusing one can randomly occur while sneaking around in Bandit lairs. After the main quest is completed, there's a random chance that certain of the bandits might start singing a song in your honor. That won't stop them from trying to kill you once you're spotted. Lampshaded by some of the idle dialogue (which unfortunately you never hear due to an oversight. A mod that fixes that can be found here)

Irrelevant Importance: Once you get your hands on them, some quest items are eternally stuck in your inventory due to buggy scripts. The game will never ever let you dump quest items. Even if they've already served their purpose and the said quest has been completed. Sometimes even items without any quest relation at all get this treatment. But considering that quest items typically have a weight value of 0, it's not really a big deal anyway

Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": The Prophet in Knights of the Nine. The Stranger in Anvil. Justified due to the fact that he's the Gray Fox and the curse of the cowl he wears strikes the wearer's identity from history. In fact he even tells you his name a few times but thanks to the curse you still only know him as a stranger. The Adoring Fan. The player character is referred to in various ways, usually related to their prior accomplishments (Grand Champion of the Arena, Hero of Kvatch, Champion of Cyrodiil, etc.). When fighting in the Arena proper, they are allowed to select a nickname, though.

Amazon Brigade: The Shivering Isles are policed by two of them, no less, the Golden Saints (Auriel) and Dark Seducers (Mazken). There are males... but they're rare, subservient to the females, and statistically weaker. Additionally, due to a scripting error when you become Duke or Duchess of Mania/Dementia the two groups will greet or refer to you only in the feminine. It's "fixed" in the Unofficial Patch, for those that don't find it entertaining.

Writers Cannot Do Math: As this article points out, there is a subtle (but kind of scary) example in the Arena's method of promoting gladiators. When writing out the means for promoting the player character, Bethesda likely didn't conceive just how exponentially large the killcount would really be when the other gladiators' ranks (and thus number of victories) were considered.

Horrible Housing
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_db2b02bf
comment
Horrible Housing: The two cheapest houses you can buy are squalid one-room shacks on the Imperial City waterfront and over a canal in the Wretched Hive of Bravil. The seller of the former reacts with a surprised "Why?" when you express interest, while that of the latter says that "the smell will soon make you forget how ugly it is."

Blood-Stained Glass Windows
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_db868eb6
comment
Blood-Stained Glass Windows: A sort of off-screen version occurs at the beginning of the "Knights Of The Nine" questline where the cathedral in Anvil is attacked and everyone inside is slaughtered. A bit more straight example would be Cadlew Chapel where the player is forced to fight necromancers who slaughtered everyone there to use as combat fodder. Really though, with all of the churches in the game, the player can invoke this dozens of times if they get bored and don't care where they pick a fight at.

It's also never revealed why the PC is in prison, with the Emperor pretty much saying "Who cares? A demon invasion is underway!" To correct for this, there's a mod where you start in the basic world, and the first crime you get arrested for in the Imperial City starts the main plot.

comment
Culture Chop Suey: Oblivion is set in a predominantly European Fantasy Counterpart Culture. However, Cloud Ruler Temple is a Buddhist temple outside, complete with upturned roof corners. Inside, we're back in fantasy Europe. This is pointed out and explained in game: at one time, the empire was ruled by a series of Akaviri (Fantasy Counterpart Culture of Japan) stewards after a failed invasion on their part (long story). The Blades were formed, and Cloud Ruler Temple built, during this time, hence the Akaviri influences on their armor, weapons and architecture.

Fantasy Kitchen Sink: Imps, unicorns, spirits, demons, vampires... Cyrodiil itself is primarily medieval Europe, owing a lot to Arthurian legend. The Empire and the Imperial Legion mix together the ancient Roman Empire with kings and knights. Asian influences exist thanks to the Akaviri. However, many of the towns and cities better resemble the Americas from the early colonial period to the 1800s, with cobblestone paved streets and raised sidewalks. Clothing also heavily mixes ancient and modern styles, from medieval clothing to things that may have been worn in the 1700s.

This was also hit the hardest with the Nibenese-Cyrodiil (the Imperials who live in the east), in a very bizarre form of cultural Flanderization. Previously, the Nibenese where described as esoteric and philosophizing, with elaborate customs and devote to various religions, cults, and ancestor worship. By the time of Oblivion though, they were described as simply chapel-going and doing religious services on Sundays, complementing the now christianity-based worshipping of Nine Divines.

The speed at which pins fall back varies, and if you're too slow, your pick breaks and some of the already set pins fall (how many depends on your Security skill). Alternatively, you can Auto Attempt to pick the lock, which either opens it or breaks the lockpick instantly, with the success chance determined by your Security skill.

The male Dremora, in addition to being fierce warriors, are exceptionally hammy when it comes to their various battle-cries. It certainly helps that they're voiced by the same actor as the Imperial males. Averted with the rare female Dremora, which due to an oversight in the game's development, are completely silent. Unsurprisingly, all of the above, except the Nords and Orcs, are voiced by the same actor, Wes Johnson.

Jerkass: Valen Dreth, the prisoner in the Imperial dungeons you meet in the prologue. No matter what race or gender you are, Dreth will mock and insult you and assure you're going to end your days in prison. When you return to the prison, he can also be heard hurling ineffectual insults at the guards. Glenroy the Blade, also met in the prologue. He's very distrustful and rude of the player and at one point suggests killing you just in case you are working with the assassins. Then again, the Emperor's life is in danger, Glenroy knows nothing about the assassins (which means the player could really be one of them) and the source of the Emperor's trust in the Champion are the dreams of an 87 years old man. Even though the Champion is not an assassin, they still end up killing the Emperor while Glenroy himself dies trying to protect him Alval Uvani, who brushes off every attempt to speak with him by saying: "I have no time for your pathetic attempts at small talk. Now walk away, before I get nasty!" The entire skooma-dealing Orum gang in Cheydinhal save for Borba. M'raaj-Dar, the Khajiit merchant in the Cheydinhal Dark Brotherhood sanctuary is extremely rude and hostile towards the player... but he apologizes towards you just in time for the mission that demands that you kill him. Voranil, as mentioned under Dude, Where's My Respect?. Cheydinhal seems to attract these guys. Mazoga the Orc, at least when you first meet her. She takes an exceptionally rude and peremptory manner with you and Weebam-Na, and insists that you address her with her self-given style of "Sir Mazoga". The Yellow Team Champion from the Arena, who seems to delight in coming up with a new insult everytime you advance in rank. Later, she seems determined to be the one to personally kill you.

Bonus Boss
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_ee0327e7
comment
Also, the Utherfrykte Matron. The Utherfrykte was an obscure Bonus Boss in the "Bloodmoon" expansion for Morrowind. In relation to this is an NPC from Bloodmoon, the foxy Svenja Snow-Song, who became your character's second in command at the Solstheim Mead Hall. In Oblivion, you can find her husband's journal at Dive Rock, detailing numerous nightmares she had regarding the creatures. Having enough of it, the two decided to venture to Cyrodiil to slay their Matron, only for Svenja to get eaten alive by the creature before getting off a shot. Her husband watches in horror, and is mortally wounded soon after, being able to make it back to their nearby camp to finish writing. You can find the husband's body and journal at the camp, and can also slay the Matron once and for all. Inside its body is Svenja's bow... along with her mostly digested corpse.

Arbitrary Mission Restriction
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_ef2c9b2d
comment
Arbitrary Mission Restriction: The Dark Brotherhood questline uses the "optional objectives" variant. Players are free to kill the targets any way they please, but with every target after Rufio and Captain Gaston Tussaud—until the player becomes Lucien Lachance's Silencer—there's a bonus added to the payment (usually a magic item) if the kill is carried out in the specified manner (e.g. to Make It Look Like an Accident in "Accidents Happen").

Impossible Thief: The Dark Brotherhood agent that asks if you want to join will always appear when you rest, even if this rest will take you into a dream world that needs a special amulet to enter. If you're in the Shivering Isles, an entire alternate plane of Oblivion, he'll appear, smile, and say "I HAVE NO GREETING."

Translation Train Wreck
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_f081fe96
comment
Translation Trainwreck: The German translation suffered from multitude of shortcomings, among them: unwieldy, misleading or incorrect item and spell names and descriptions. Even quest texts had errors. There was bad dialogue, fragments of the english orginal, widely different subtitles and so on. Neither the reviewing press nor the German fans were pleased. The latter rectified many issues with mods. The French version has it bad as well, with unvoiced bits of dialogues, some texts or names that are left in English, or some names that the translators got completely wrong, such as a scale (the tool used to measure weights) being translated as "écailles" (which is indeed the proper translation for "scales"... As in, "the scales of a reptile"), or an enchanted axe being called a "sword". Some names were also shortened due to their length once translated, leaving us with things such as a Scroll of Absorb Magicka becoming a "Roul. Absorb. Mag."

Spring-Heeled Jack: "Springheel Jak", a legendary thief who lived three centuries before the game's timeframe. One of the quests for the Thieves' Guild has you recover the legendary pair of boots originally belonging to Springheel Jak, which are magically enchanted to provide a massive boost to the wearer's Acrobatics skill, which governs how far and high you can jump. The boots also have a secret power to allow you to survive a very, very long fall in a later quest, which is why you need them in the first place.

Earn Your Happy Ending
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_f64a9cf7
comment
The Gray Fox specifically Emer Dareloth, the first Gray Fox stole the Cowl of Nocturnal from Nocturnal herself. As a Daedric Prince, she cursed the cowl to literally eradicate its user from history, meaning that no one can remember who he really is or even his own name. The Gray Fox is trapped in a world of people who can never know anything about him, rendering him unable to form permanent connections and separating the current one, Corvus Umbranox, the Count of Anvil, from his wife—he could stand in front of her and she wouldn't be able to recognize him. The Gray Fox earns his happy ending when, with the player's help, he figures out how to break the curse and finally rejoins the world.

An Axe to Grind

comment
An Axe to Grind: Interestingly governed by the Blunt skill. The official explanation is that the act of swinging an axe is more akin to using a club than a sword, tending to cause "hack/chop" injuries that have elements of both blunt and sharp trauma and deal internal damage similar to that of a mace, flail, or war hammer.

Video Game Cruelty Potential
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_f87c42d4
comment
Video Game Cruelty Potential: The game allows you to kill any non-essential characters in the game (although this may result in you failing quests that you haven't even started), and essential characters can just be knocked unconscious over and over again. The sheer amount of videos on YouTube about killing certain people (or yourself) in Oblivion is astounding, but admit it, starting random rampages and mercilessly massacring the guards and citizens of Cyrodiil is fun. Number one on the list of favorite targets is the Adoring Fan, who, if killed, will respawn three days later and reappear at your side, torch in hand and smile on face. The amount of videos of killing him in various manners (including that perennial favorite, death by Dive Rock) is mind-boggling to non-fans who don't fully grasp the relationship between players of Oblivion and the Adoring Fan. When you talk to the heart-broken fisherman outside Imperial City you have two options: you help him fish, or you laugh hard at his misfortune. The Wiki notes some strategies for increasing combat skills, including "Use your horse for target practice. If you have obtained Shadowmere, she is unkillable." The game's own tips suggest killing your own summoned creatures to trap their souls for enchanting. In the "Shivering Isles" add-on, the paranoid duchess of a city gives you the task to uncover a conspiracy against her, bestows the title of "Grand Inquisitor" upon you, and lends you her torturer. Then you can either take a direct route to find the conspirators... or let your tourturer zap annoying NPCs. In the Vile Lair DLC, you can buy the Cattle Cell, which contains an unwakable, unkillable prisoner meant as a food source for those who become vampires, but is more useful for target practice.

Sequence Breaking: A high level in acrobatics can allow you to do this in optional dungeons.

A high Acrobatics skill allows you to jump to these doors, essentially skipping the entire dungeon and allowing you to quickly obtain the best loot found in the dungeon.

Cruelty Is the Only Option: In the Mehrunes' Razor DLC, the "normal" way to finish the final puzzle and get the Razor is by eating a still living man's heart, getting you a massive infamy penalty. The only others options are to either force the gate (which requires a near maxed out strength stat), or fight That One Boss.note Although you can take the heart, not eat it, and try to force the gate. This will weaken the aforementioned boss significantly without the negative effects of eating the heart, which include contracting Porphyric Hemophilia (the disease that turns you into a vampire) and Cannibal's Prion. Additionally, if you keep the heart, you can make a potion that turns you into a vampire with maxed Alchemy.

Was Once a Man
 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Video Game) / int_fdad625e
comment
Not drinking blood makes a vampire PC stronger and grants them more abilities, but with more weaknesses to fire and sunlight. A vampire who has fed recently has no problem blending into society, but one who has not fed for several days becomes exceeding gaunt and pale with deep red eyes, making their condition obvious to anyone else. One vampire you encounter who has been trapped and gone decades without feeding has gone irrevocably insane and attacks anybody on sight. Another you may encounter in a quest to find a vampirism cure hasn't been able to come to terms with her condition and refused to feed, falling into a coma as a result. Also, you get infected with the vampire virus if bitten by an NPC vampire, but for some reason NPCs don't get infected when you bite them. Cyrodiil vampires are different from Morrowind vampires, as they were from Daggerfall vampires. An in-game book confirms there are regional breeds of vampires, and Cyrodiil was once home to other bloodlines that have long since been wiped out by the currently dominant order.

New Weapon Target Range: The Dark Brotherhood will set you optional objectives during your missions and award you magic items as a bonus if you complete all objectives successfully. One of these items is The Deceiver's Finery, a set of fancy clothes that boost your Personality trait and Speechcraft skill... and sure enough, the next mission they give you has you murdering people who are searching for treasure in a manor, and the optional objective involves using Speechcraft to convince them to split up so you can kill them without being discovered.
