Children of Oblivion: Arcane Academy RESOURCE

Two computer upgrades and a spot of file corruption deleted all my work on this. Rather than hanging onto it indefinitely, I’m releasing the bits everyone contributed (including bits from existing resources) as a modder’s resource.

Modder’s resource of items, cells and NPCs for a school mod called Arcane Academy.

Over a year ago now, I wanted to make a mod like Emma’s Children of Morrowind. I hadn’t underestimated how much work was involved, but I DID overestimate my interest in such a project.

I did substantially more work on this than appears in the enclosed mod – I must have made over eighty NPC children, gave them packages, built a beautiful indoor herb garden … but somehow all my work was lost. I’m pretty upset about that, but I don’t have the time or energy to do it all again.

Since the project’s deadline – Dec 2008 – has now passed, it doesn’t seem fair on the people who gave such kind contributions to leave it on my hard drive forever. I’ve now packaged it up as a modder’s resource so that anyone who wants to can take the work I did and build on it for their own mod.

What’s in the box (or, rather, test cell)?

  • A few base NPCs with child-like features (by me)
  • School uniforms by Koutetsu (does not fit Argonians/Khajiit) – note: these give a flat-chested appearance to females
  • Books from Children of Morrowind (originally by me)
  • A short story by Michael Kirkbride I found on TIL
  • Custom artwork for the books
  • Wooden toys by MickTheMage
  • Bear resource by Xiamara
  • Wooden sword and shield by Pekka
  • Two kind people on the official forums donated the ball meshes/textures but I have lost the credits info – for this I apologise. Please let me know if it was you.
