Welcome Now to OBLIVION! An Elder Scrolls Let's Play.

Post by Zink »

Welcome to Welcome Now to OBLIVION! As the title suggests, this is a Let's Play of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

If you have never heard of or played Oblivion, here is a quick explanation. Oblvion is a Western RPG where you create a character and then explore a vast fantasy world and complete quests. It is very open ended, and you can pretty much do whatever you want once the intro is over. Although you do level up in Oblivion, the world levels up with you, thus making it so that leveling up can make the game harder.

This is the main character of this Let's Play. His name is Charlie Manhuge, and he is a Dark Elf.

The first thing you may notice is that, despite the name, he is not actually all that huge. And he has dumb hair. However, he is the sort that, upon hearing you say either of these facts, would BEAT YOU TO DEATH WITH HIS BARE FISTS. Although, he would probably do that anyway. For fun. And then he would steal everything you own. And then bring you back to life just so he can beat you to death again with your former possessions. He's kind of a booty like that.

AND THUS, THE ADVENTURE BEGINS.

No, at least one of them had a whip. Another one held the tube of lube. The last one was a clenched fist.
