We treat ESO....gently. There are certainly things that cross over, but I haven't seen any lore that suggests that Youkudans had much interaction with the Khajiit before they came to Tamriel. We do work closely with Hammerfell since one of our directors is also a director over there. With these cultures it's sometimes a fine line, since they are often influenced by RL cultures and there is some overlap. Especially with Elsweyr and Hammerfell, from the deserts and the turbans, and the curved swords, with the Youkudan Book of Circles and the Rimmenese Daikatana. We work very hard to focus on the lore we have, and expand on it where necessary.
@PortoMilk ~ Do you have any examples of your writing? We're pretty good with music at the moment. I have to say, after the void nights (and a little propaganda), the Thalmor and Aldmeri are pretty well received by the Khajiit. It's not like the nights green flame or purges that Valenwood experienced.
That is an interesting idea, can you site lore to back it up? Right now we're running with the idea that it did create physical effects. If it didn't I think the Khajiit would come to the conclusion that they were just hiding like you said, but instead, they *know* they were gone.
We'll look into the desert effects. That's a good point.
I think that depends on if it slithers or crawls. If it crawls I think the belly will get in the way, if it slithers, I think it might work out. If it slithers the legs (and arms) could end up being almost vestigial, and show their overindulgence, as the belly would sliding across the floor. If it crawls then it's going to need some muscles or something to pull that belly up as it moves. Is it going to move quickly on those legs or slowly? I love that back claw. This thought just occurred to me so take it with a grain of salt, and I'm not quite up on your lore, but what if the sluggy war caster was riding a terrible mawed, perhaps undead, arachnid/insect thing? Basically chopping this awesome model in half and have it be rider and mount instead of centaur.
