The Old Ways v 1.01

A Race MOD for Morrowind

Revision History:
Updated 05/25/02 - female models added for Shade and Valheru races. All 3 download files uploaded.

This mod contains 3 new races, a new class, and makes a few classes playable that weren't before: (Necromancer, Witch, and Warlock.)

The Races

Rebis: This race is the sorcerous offspring of Dark Elven worshippers of Mephala. The Rebis is a fusion of genders, and possesses the innate qualities of the warrior-priest. They are few in number, and act as champions of this Lord of Oblivion, aiding warlocks and witches in thier secret schemes. I intended this to be the only race I needed to make, since it was a character concept I wanted to play. Then I got 2 more requests.

Shade: The Shades are born among the human races, and are seen as an evil omen. They are killed at birth among the Imperials, as they believe that they are destined to be witches or necromancers.

Valheru: Once the dominant race, ruler of all races, the Valheru fell from grace of the gods they angered. Now, the Valheru strive to rebuild what was stolen from them. They worship no god, as they consider themselves equal if not superior to all gods, at least when they were in their prime.

Skill Bonus Base Attribues Ability
Heavy Armor +15 Str 40 Night Eye
Long Blade +15 Int 40 Magica Bonus 1.5
Enchant +10 Wil 30 Soul Trap
Mysticism +5 Agi 40 Voice of the Emperor
  Spd 50
  End 40
    Per 30
    Luc 40


The Class

Alienist: The Alienist is a hybrid class of conjuror and knight. They summon creatures from the netherworld to aid them, and deal in the souls of lesser beings, binding them to their purposes. They fight with the heavy ritual armor and weapons of the ancient days, and assist their summoned servants when necessary.

Class: Alienist Major Skills Minor Skills
Long Blade Alteration
Primary Attributes Conjuration Enchant
Intelligence Heavy Armor Athletics
Endurance Mysticism Acrobatics
Marksman Medium Armor
Specialization The Alienist is a warrior-priest devoted to protecting and furthering the aims of the old Daedric cults. They summon their powers from Oblivion, and fight with ancient world ritual weapons and armor.

I made this class to accompany my idea of the renegade cult of Mephala, and it's strange warrior-priests. It could just as easily facilitate a Melnibonean character concept as well. Use it or not, as you wish.
