"Do what you will; but I will hinder it, if I may."

"Hinder me? Thou fool. No living man may hinder me!"

"But no living man am I! You are looking upon a woman. Éowyn am I, Éomund's daughter. You stand between me and my lord and kin. Begone, if you be not deathless! For living or dark undead, I will smite you, if you touch him."

Antlers? Really?

zoop526:

Anyone got a line on why, all of a sudden, Bosmer have antlers? It’s an augmentation you can choose for your Bosmer in Elder Scrolls Online and I can’t find anything lore-wise about it. Is this some sort of Green Pact thing I missed somewhere because I had my head in an Orc for too long?

I made a Bosmer with horns in ESO, and was curious as well. I had forgotten you could have horn-like adornments in Morrowind:

Although they weren’t as fancy, obviously. Maybe because Morrowind takes place hundreds of years later than ESO, horned-Bosmer become really rare? Anyway, there’s a theory being tossed around that it is related to the Green Pact (via uesp):

Y’ffre grants them the power to maintain their form and not constantly change their form as in the Dawn Era, while also permitting to them to return to that state if a significant number of Bosmer perform a ritual.

So because of their association with the powerful nature spirit (god, whatever), they may retain some nature-related attributes—I tried to make mine resemble a tree a bit.

Also, apparently, they were originally supposed to look more bestial:

Wish they had kept this idea (sans PRETTY LADIES ONLY PLZ). Would have made for some wicked styles.

Potoo and the descent into madness.

You wouldn’t think it to look at them, but they have a sweetly melancholic, bluesy call for attracting a mate that earns them the name Pour-me-one.

I doubt they’d even be allowed in a bar. They’d probably do something crazy like stab people with a bar stool because they remind him of his mother.

Um, “potoo” refers to an entire genus of birds (and family, by virtue of being the only ones left, the rest having presumably dropped dead of shame by proxy). While the common potoo’s song (linked in original post) is quite lovely, the great potoo’s can best be described as “WAAAAHHHH. WAAAAHHHH. WAAAAHHHHH.” 

Also realmonstrosities are you reading my mind, I was JUST telling my aunt about this bird

Hahahahahaa! OK… so “WAAAAHHHH”  sounds a lot more like they look.

And yes, I was just flicking through your mind a little. I’m afraid you left it on the bus.

The only potoo species I’ve ever heard had a call that sounded like “MOOOOOOUM”. Between this and the way they look with their eyes open I’m convinced these birds were designed by Allie Brosh.
