Meanwhile...

Why give Prequel its own thread? Because Kaz kept their end of the deal

This is the first time we've been completely out of Katia's scene too. A new challenger approaches? Or just exposition that will lead us back to her quickly?

It's Denzel.



Good advice-giving, Ryg.

I just learned yesterday that Quill-Weave is actually an NPC in Oblivion who stands accused of secretly letting mountain lions into her neighbor's basement

Also I had forgotten that Argonians are pure terror in-game. Jesus, just LOOK at her.

Yeah, Prequel in general is a lot more... cute than Oblivion.

For example: here is what Katia probably looks like.

Yeah, there's a reason no one actually plays Khajiit or Argonians. Also I think so far every named character has been an actual NPC from Oblivion.

There's also a good deal of references to TES lore in general well hidden enough to be missed. You may remember Orrin mentioning how the last imperial prisoner was turned into a nectarine.

Yeah, there's a lot of stuff like that.  The part about Quill-Weave having a friend in Chorrol?
Quote
On the 7th of each month, she will get out of bed at 6am and start her long journey towards Chorrol to visit her good friend and colleague, Casta Scribonia. She will take the Gold Road all the way to the Imperial City, then head north on the Red Ring Road and then turn left on the Black Road towards Chorrol. After 36 hours of traveling, she will arrive there at 12pm on the next day. Once there, she will actively seek out Casta and follow her around to her various destinations, which include both the Chorrol chapter of the Mages Guild and the The Oak and Crosier. Her departure time varies (see notes), but if she chooses to stay in Chorrol, she will sleep in Casta’s bed between midnight and 8am. While on her trip and during her time in Chorrol, she will offer training 24 hours a day. Note, that if Casta Scribonia is dead, Quill-Weave will cancel the Chorrol trip altogether, returning to her normal schedule at 7am.

Also the one-liner about knowing parkour: she'll train your Acrobatics skill up, which is what determines jump height and speed.

Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.

Enough about Easter Eggs for Oblivion fans! Let's talk about Prequel!

I think Katia has one more good breakdown and therein drunken night of debauchery in her before people start to get really sick of it. Rule of Threes here, people. And the circumstances leading to her getting drunk have to be really, really dire before she loses self-control. She should have enough sense of self-worth and esteem by now to be able to deal with minor-to-medium setbacks. I'm thinking... the universe itself comes together with the express desire to create a Rube Goldberg-esque series of situations completely out of Katia's control that completely cause Quill-Weave to lose all respect and goodwill she had in her and cause Quill-Weave to potentially say something to Katia that she can't take back.

I think dire circumstances are in her future for certain, since she's going to kvatch and everything

(PREDIT: Clearly some of you haven't played the game, so I guess talking about it might spoil the comic? I dunno, but safe side and all.)

[spoiler]The way I see it, Kvatch should be still fine, this is a prequel. Heck, she might even see Martin there. The city's not going to be destroyed until she gets thrown in the Imperial City Jail and has to *gasp* meet the Emperor.

Assuming she's even meant to be the eventual player character of course, which I've always figured to be the case.[/spoiler]

Ehh, everybody's ugly in Oblivion.  Khajiit are no exception.

See, I've been getting the exact opposite feel. I forget the background to Oblivion's hero but I thought you were taken as an imperial prisoner from somewhere else. I mean, certainly no one in Cyrodiil seems to know you once you get out of prison.

The comic is a prequel, but the prequel to Katia's story, not The Champion of Cyrodiil.

I didn't expect to see any of the events of Oblivion going down from her point of view. But well, she does seem to be hinting pretty heavily towards bad times at Kvatch.

My guess is that she's somehow responsible for the whole mess in Oblivion.

Also, guessing that Asotil is Hieronymus Lex - even though he really looks nothing like Lex - specifically because nobody has shown any signs of actually knowing his name.  Including Umbranox, which can lead to some hilarious consequences.

Oh God damn that was a fast update.  I was just going over to suggest "Darkspire Maximus".
