I made it to Project AHO in my heavily modded Skyrim playthrough, which is the first quest/new location mod of the bunch I’ve installed.
Bags don’t come much more mixed than this.
The writing is abysmal. The first part of the mod is a bunch of tedious fetch quests for some 2-dimensional characters with middling-to-bad voice acting. For an idea, one of the quests is literally talk to a guy, he gives you a scroll, you cast it; talk to the guy, he gives you another scroll, you cast it; talk to the guy he gives you another scroll, you cast it; success! You complete the quest and get a new spell.
Once you get to the final part of the main quest line, though, the dungeon that I’m currently crawling through is really, really cool. The main hub town is a huge clusterfuck of colors, but the variety of colorful flora actually seem to work in this dungeon, for some reason.
I can’t believe how broken all the English is. Beyond that, I also can’t believe that the voice actors are faithfully reading this horribly broken English. Some of them sound like native English speakers; at some point, you’d think one of them would have told the author/s, “Hey, this line doesn’t make any fucking sense.”
Making a rewrite patch for all the quest descriptions, books, notes, etc., and maybe the subtitles, could be a fun project.
[spoiler]Speaking of bad writing: the premise of this mod is that you’re captured and sold into slavery in a Dunmeri city. Eventually, the leaders of the city offer to free you in exchange for your help saving their city… but first, they mock you for getting caught? I’m playing a pure mage this go-through, so I used alternate start to start at the College of Winterhold and do its questline first, so I’m arch-mage. The leaders of this Dunmer city were saying that they’ve looked into my past, and are wondering how the College is getting on without its arch-mage. Maybe they’ve already replaced me with another arch-mage? Maybe they should capture that arch-mage, as well?
That really puts me in the mood to save your city for you.
I’m going to bring back a couple followers later and murder this entire town of slaver assholes.[/spoiler]
