being a necromancer sounds pretty sweet, though

Ehhhh I don't know.

You'd have to be around a lot of angry old ladies and would be in constant danger of being easily punched to death by Charlie.

You'd probably die anyway.

Just look at what happens to Nameless every other week.

But with Necromancy, you can punch people to death, resurrect them, and then punch them to death again.

Urghhhh. Being the Arch-Mage is gonna suck. I already fixed the Necromancer problem, which means that the guild will be focusing on other things like "research" or "not violence".

I HATE THOSE THINGS.

And I'm probably gonna get all the paper-work. Great. Just great.

If only there was some way I could-

Image

Wait...

That's it! I've got it!

I can't lead the Mage's Guild if there isn't a Mage's Guild!

If everyone is dead, then I won't have to be the Arch-Mage because there will be no guild for me to rule!

Clearly, I have to kill each and every non-essential member of the Mage's Guild!

Image

Starting with all you stupid and nameless conjurers and apprentices!

Image

Yes! Fight! Fight until each and every one of you breathes no longer! Fight until you are the last man standing! Fight until there is no one left to fight! Fight until your former friends are but memories! Fight for honor! Fight for me not doing paper-work!

Image

I never understand why, every time a fight breaks out in the Mage's Guild, the Punch Misers start fighting guards outside the Mage's Guild even though none of them were frenzied.

It is a mystery that will probably never be solved.

Image
Image

A FEW HOURS LATER

Well, that takes care of everyone outside. However, I'm sure there are still some people inside all those buildings that surround the university. I'd better find them and, as the Mage's Guild constantly put it, "root them out".

Image

Like this lady, who is in the Chiro- The Cyranas- the Kira-

...The enchantment place.

Image

However, frenzy doesn't seem to work on her.

I can't outright kill her, even with a sneak attack, because I'll automatically be kicked out of the guild and won't be able to eliminate the rest of those in the Arcane University.

Luckily, I have a different plan.

Image

I will simply summon a Golden Saint and then frenzy her, causing her to kill the mage!




Short story shorter: That didn't work either. Dammit.

Image

In the practice rooms I see a pair of mages shooting at some targets.

As I always say, the best way to practice combat is to experience it!

I cast a frenzy spell on both of them.

Image


As you can see, the guy won.

I wonder if anyone is upstairs.

Image

...Why would there be furniture in front of the targets? That's just stupid. They're just asking for things to get broken.

Anyway, time to frenzy.

Image

The mages immediately rip their shirts off, conjure up some axes, and start trying to sever each others heads.

...You ever notice how rarely these mages actually use spells to fight?

Image

The blonde one wins and goes downstairs.

Image

Now, its the final round! The winner of the upstairs fight versus the winner of the ground floor fight!

WHO WILL WIN!?

Image

THE GROUND FLOOR CHAMPION HAS EMERGED VICTORIOUS!

AS A PRIZE, HE WILL NOT BE KILLED!




...Unless I change my mind later.

Image

Also, I change back into my Amber armor, since the strength buffs and the fact that light armor does not encumber me when I wear it will help me carry all the daggers I've been looting off these mages' corpses.

I've missed this armor. I really have.

TO THE... err... whatever the hell they call the spell-making place.

Image

Oh, you. Mister "I'm gonna hit on this guy while he's practicing his Illusion magic".

Your death will be SWIFT.

...As soon as I figure out how to kill you without getting kicked out.

Image

I find the other guy upstairs, asleep.

Since they aren't in the same room, I can't fenzy them and have them kill each other.

Image

Frenzy spells don't seem to work on them anyway.

What to do, what to do...



Wait, I think I have an idea!

Image

Mage's hoods are weightless, right? That means I can reverse-pickpocket them on to someone.

Image

Annnnnnd I can enchant said Mage's hoods.

And the enchantment doesn't have to be pleasant.

Now, all I have to do is plant the hood on someone while they sleep, wake them up, and hope they put it on and slowly die from electric shock!

It's the perfect plan!

Image

Let's try it on that lady from the Chiro-... enchantment place, first.

Image

I put the hood in her inventory and wake her up.

Image

She puts the hood on just before she goes back to bed.

She attempts to heal the shock damage away.

Image

Soon, she is bodaciously frozen in the position, constantly healing and constantly taking damage. The noise all combines into some sort of weird buzzing sound while she pulses with electricity.

Image

However, while she might not be moving, her health bar is definitely shrinking.

Image

Almost thereeeeeee...

Image

IT WORKS!

Image

And the best part is that I can just loot the hood off her corpse and use it again!

It's the murder weapon that can be used again and again!

Image

Now, let's try it on this guy...

Image

He's getting up...

Image

Annnnnd... he's not putting the death hood on.

Maybe I should wait until he wakes up normally.

Image

Dammit, he's still not wearing it!

Image

Oh well. At least I can easily pickpocket it back.

Image

Maybe it will work on the other guy, since he's not already wearing a hood.

Image

ASOIFJSDOAF He won't put it on either!

THIS IS FRUSTRATING!

Image

Looks like I only have one choice. I must wait for that short time when they change shifts, which is the only time they are in the same room together. Then, I must swiftly strike and kill them both before I get kicked out.

Image

And now, I wait.

Image

Well, here goes nothing...

Image

Well, looks like Gaspar the friendly mage...

Image

...is about to become Gaspar the friendly ghost.

Image

Oh, and the other guy is dead too.

I don't have a joke for him, though.

Image

I barely have enough time to loot their corpses before I am removed from the premises.

Image

Well, killing everyone in the university took longer than I thought.

I'll bribe my way back into the guild later. For now, it's time to deal with the Guild Halls.

I love doing that with hoods!
This is my signature because i am mostly a lurker, therefore i have no use for signatures.

Hm, reverse pickpocketing is pretty cool.

I will remember this.

Ha, that hood-reverse pickpocket trick's pretty awesome, I didn't expect it. If I ever get oblivion, I'm going to abuse it as much as possible.

I still don't know why it didn't work on those two other guys.


Maybe they are scripted to only wear one thing and one thing only or something?

Sometimes, at least in Fallout 3, you would have to fast travel away for the person to switch inventories.
