Its a reference from the story of "Diagna", more an avatar of HoonDing then HoonDing themselves, but anyway.... they did bring orichalc weapons to the yokudans, that are referenced as being instrumental in the defeat of the LHE... ....but not from where did they bring them (so possibly very rare at this stage, one of a kind types deals if no local orichalc resources...legendary though) or how they were instrumental (just better then LHE materials or immune to LHE "earthbending" magic that could shatter other materials swords were made from) When the redguard landed in hammerfell back in the day the were met by and fought "giant green goblins" or some such. orcs, masters of the material....theres also a lore reference to Diagna leading a fight against the orcs of Orsinium (in tamriel, after the exodus from yokuda) anyway, theres a good chance the actual materials/knowledge of Oricalc weapons actually came to yokuda from tamriel long before it exploded. if the ancient yokudans valued it, because it had won a war for them, them the exodus to hammerfell becomes a raw resources grab as well as everything else.
TL:DR: We could have some but i'd suggest unless the raw material for the weapons is actually on Thras (hadn't planned to but things can change) then they would be very rare.
Persistence is a good thing! It's not for me to say but consider your audience. While both letter and discourse are very well written, project writing teams (and their recruiters) require flexibility. One day it could be a discourse on the Altmeri, the next a few pages of a torn diary belonging to a commoner. While you have a wonderful vibe going with your examples, I'd suggest, and only suggest, more variations of character could get you more interest. Writing is a hard job to get into at BS at the best of times but it's easier if you know what projects in particular interest you and what they are looking for. Go hang out on the project forums, get involved and see what happens
Hey ash, Always a good idea to post up some examples of your work to catch the eye of passing developers from the projects. Some screen shots of your level design work and/or a selection of your writing will help your application a lot:
Have a look at the Beyond Skyrim welcome pack for more info on the individual provinces
oh even just chat about the Untiy projects, like what applications they cover, what they do. ...you never know what provinces/projects may be working on, so never any harm to show off as much of your skillset as possible.
Hey LittlePrince! If you get caught short for file space in posts, consider making a gallery of your art here at Dark Creations; https://www.darkcreations.org/gallery/ and then you can just link the gallery in your posts/application.
Have a look at the Beyond Skyrim welcome pack and see if any province in particular catches your eye;
Hey LostTruth! Having a few mods already published is great for an application for lots of reasons imo...and yeah, there were some really disappointing "legendary" weapons in skyrim tbh...nice work! anyway, have a look at the Beyond Skyrim welcome pack and see if any province in particular catches your eye;
Tutorials: it honestly depends what you'd like to focus on to start imo.
coding/scripting Papyrus is the scripting language used by the skyrim engine, http://www.cipscis.com/skyrim/tutorials/beginners.aspx and it has a fantastic extender called SKSE http://skse.silverlock.org/ thats how i started with the CK, like as way to start converting my skill set to Skyrim engine. with your background in coding id suggest you’d pick it up really quickly and its a skill set all provinces are always looking for.
CK in general; check out the wiki and pick a subject that interests you would be my advice. http://www.creationkit.com/index.php?title=Main_Page (you'll also find function libraries, working examples etc etc on most topics there) and then a quick you tube search will often bring up a surprising amount of great tutorials on most things.
btw, beyond Skyrim has a pretty nifty "Arcane University" that is a store of tutorials, help from other members and all kinds of good stuff for the community as a whole.; https://www.darkcreations.org/forums/forum/927-arcane-university/
You wont be short of offers Dagon ..i forgot to post this up the last time, but some info about the BSLightingShaderProperty in the nifs skyrim uses; https://forums.nexusmods.com/index.php?/topic/1188259-bslightingshaderproperty-basics/ should help explain material definition and how to control shader settings in skyrim engine for what its worth.
Necromancy on Thras is the realm of the Sload tbh. It's so central to Sload culture that we probably need to have npc groups like the birdfolk practice other types of magic just so there a reason for it to be on Thras! That said, a particularly interesting birdfolk NPC, perhaps one long corrupted by Thras who uses necromancy, could be the core of a nice renegade birdfolk quest?
Hey Hopper! Probably a good idea to post some examples of work, a little vid of your sword mod implementation would catch a few eyes imo as would a peek at one or two of your unity projects. It honestly doesnt have to be anything TES/Skyrim related, passion for the BS project mixed with a desire to learn and a few examples of your foundation skills is always going to get someone’s attention imo. check out the beyond skyrim welcome pack and see what provinces jump out for you;
Best way would be to post an application on the individual Province recruitment forums Praetor. ...It's often a good idea to have a little look around the individual provinces forums too before doing so. See what they are loking for, and tailor the application to highlight any skills you have in particular that match up with the provinces needs. ...but thats really only a suggestion!
