Heeellllpppp! (I think.) I went to the Skingard Mages Guild to pick up my next assignment. I got it, then went upstairs to sleep. In the middle of the night it told me I had a dream about vampires -- something about the face was mine -- and when I woke I had Vampire attributes and Hunter's Vision. Does that mean I'm a vampire now? I hope not. How can I be a vampire in the Mage's Guild. Maybe it just means I have those attributes now.

My eyes are not deep red anymore, but pink. AAGGGGHHHH. Tell me it isn't so!

Oh, gosh, Jean. Can you remember getting bit while doing battle with a vampire? Check your journal and see if it shows how many days you have spent as a vampire, if any. That will be one way to determine your status. eek

It does sound suspiciously like you are. Why can't there be vampires in the Mage's Guild - it's not like you're a Necromancer. wink There is one Count who is a vampire. There is a vampire in the DB.

Sounds like you have a new quest coming up. In the meantime...avoid sunlight.

Uh uh. Not me! No way, No how! I went back and reloaded a game from the night before and then went and got cured. Whew!! They ain't got me yet!

I do remember fighting vampires, and I did contract the disease, but I had a "heal disease" potion with me that I thought cured me. I guess it didn't. rotfl

Next time RUN for the nearest Temple!

Now, I had absolutely no idea that I had become a vampire until it was far, far too late to do anything about it. I slept in sewers and I slithered up to sleeping beggars to eat. I dashed from pillar to post on the poor little Paint Horse with the sunlight nipping at my heels. And just about the time I found everything I needed for the cure, I began to like my life in the dark. Still, I gave it up because it was having a serious impact on my ability to roam around freely.

If I knew that another cure potion could be brewed up for me, I would quite happily spend another few weeks as a vampire - having to watch the time and plan every move gives the game an addded layer.

Hi all,

It is probably a good idea to drink the cure potion and also to visit the temple for insurance.

I don't like Vampires or Werewolves either so always make sure I have a cure disease potion handy and visit the Temples.

I also keep backup copies of my saves in another folder so if I had to use them....I would have them handy.

Ah oh - I'd best be visiting a temple then because I got bit by a vamp also but thought I was cured with the cure disease potion.

Hmm, I have contracted the vampire disease at least once, but the Cure Disease potion did the trick for me. I've also been diseased by rats, zombies and probably something else. At least one of the diseases was pretty nasty in that it drained Magicka and kept you from ever regenerating any more.

Most diseases have some effect that will show up in your list of current effects (the last tab in the magic menu area).

Of course, some things manage to damage an attribute, and it's easiest to take care of those at a temple.

Level 31 and there are still two of the 9 divines that I never stumbled across a wayshrine for!

Cure diesease will work if you have one and drink it in time, for sure. It's just that - well, not everyone carries the right potions all the time (like me, for instance). So if there is no potion handy, the nearest temple is the answer.

I just always have the cure disease spell at the ready when dealing with disease carrying creatures. No weight or expense once purchased. I can't remember where I bought it, but I don't think it requires a very high magica. It has certainly been worth the initial cost for me! eek

smile I'm having a hard time tracking down people who sell spells that I want to permanently learn. I can definitely benefit from some upgraded spells, but it's so annoying to find the people who can teach them to you.

I now own properties in all cities except Skingrad. And that one I could probably buy - if I spent a couple days getting my loot out of storage and sold! Packrat habits carry over into game time. smile

I can't find the dude that sells the house in Skingrad. I haven't had much call to be there lately, but as I just took over the Fighter's Guild I have a bit of time now - only the main quest to do and any other little ones that I come across, plus now some cave crawling.

The only real quibble I have with Oblivion is that it doesn't have the huge number of quests that Morrowind had. I feel sort of at loose ends at the moment -- putting off the rest of the main story line for as long as I can. I've taken up casting low level summons at ogres (from a cowardly distance) to up my casting ability so I can try taking on some challenges without my trusty Deadric bow.

...OK I've bought the house in Skingrad. Now I can't decide which house to stash my stuff in. I was putting certain things in each house - armout in Anvil, alchemy gear in Chorrol, weapons in Cheydinal, but that's a bit silly. I must say the place in Skingrad is impressive. But I'll have to drop in on my other places just for a night or two. My husband had a huge laugh the other night when he saw that I had my dark elf sitting beside the fire in the Cheydinal house while I was on the Internet.

Does anyone know if you can actually put things in the display cases safely? I imagine you can since you own the house. I have a few items that would look rather good. smile

Hi all,

I just found the cure disease spell and Posion and Paralize ( I think). The guy in the Layawiin Temple had them to sell.

Got to go back as soon as I have enough money.

Don't need potions then.

I only drink potions for cure diesease and go to the Temple because I just feel better. Probably don't need to do both but that is just me.

I have been having a lot of fun going into the Oblivion Gates and wondering what the next stone will have to enchant with and how the Gate is going to be set up as to getting to the stone.

One of the stones had constant light effect so my armor was enchanted with that and I now glow in the dark hehe.

In another gate one of the Dremora had a detect life ring so you never know what you will find in there.

Geez, I miss a day or two here and now I'm behind! smile

Going back to what was said earlier:

"Tamia, if you are far enough along to do the Daedric quests, try Nocturnal. The reward is a skeleton key!!"

How do I find the Daedric quests? This sounds like what I need! I just joined the theives guild.

One thing I've been doing to raise my magic skills is buying low level spells and casting them as I run around. I have a small shield spell to raise alteration (for lock picking) and a starlight spell to raise illusion, I think it was. I just keep casting them as I go around doing my thing. The downside is, I now don't have enough magica to perform the spells I want. Guess that will come as I level up.

Tamia, I just picked up the skeleton key. You need to be level 10. The shrine is north of Leyawin, near the road and just west of "County Leyawin" on the map. I was doing well with the autopick, but thought it might be useful in the Oblivion gates.
