The Shadowscales by Metallica1147 The Shadowscales by Metallica1147
Its for a Fan Fic I'm writing that I posted today on Fan Fiction. The Shadowscales are coming back with four new members.

(From top left to bottom right) Veezara, Derkeethus, Phantom-Fish (who belongs to VoicesFromTheDark and yes he allowed me to use him) and Godzummy (my own Skyrim Character)

There will be a rebirth of the Shadowscales, because like Emperor Tidus Mede The Second said, "You can't stop The Dark Brotherhood." and Argonians will still be born under the sign of The Shadow. The Shadowscales are out there, they just need to be found.

I still don't understand how they even fell, or why the Brotherhood got hit so hard. It was a global war, the kind of place where assasins would thrive like no other. What the hell? Did no one think to call them up as elite hitmen? Or why didn't Argonia and it's new found strenght protect them?

Beats me, Argonia should of been a super power as far as I saw it, get them teamed with the Ra'jira Krin (I think that's how it's spelled, then Khajiit and Argonians take over Tamriel! Thieves and Assassin's rule over all! Because lets face it, you get the Brotherhood under your command you take over The Thieves Guild, the jarl's can claim command all they want but the guards seem to know who really rules over Skyrim.

They don't even need a team up, help rebuild the Brotherhood, funnel some Shadowscales and assasins into their continent wide bases, and bam! You not only have a foothold in every major province, but the backing of a magical guild of unmatched assasins, who are the bread and butter of their main deity, and now have a furious love for Black Marsh. They can now kill any and every political enemy they want on a sheer whim. I'm really hoping the next TES is in Argonia, between their increase in power, the Sload necromancers, and the Hist, shit could be intense. Add some giant "rebuild the Brotherhood" questline, something with Dunmer vigilantes wanting revenge, the Thalmor looking into the Hist for whatever reason, maybe references to the Empire's failed attempts at conquest, it could be majestic.

Also, I hear khajiits and argonians actualy hate each other, but yeah! A Dragonborn that did both questlines to the fullest now has access to the Night Mother who can find him more recruits, all the contacts he's made through the Thieves Guil, probably something resembling a friendship with Mave, and a ridiculous influx of contracts. He can kill off any competition, and with the war effort builing up to a second Great War, not to mention whatever Stormcloak sympathisers/bitter Legionaires, the Brotherhood should be feeling pretty busy and appreciated.

Yeah they mentioned that hatred in Oblivion, but maybe by Skyrim they put it behind them? As for Maven? She and her family can rot in the Void, I'd love to send them all there to. Al yes the Brotherhood is apprichiated just not openly, and they are forever, because Sithis is forever.

The Thalmor in Argonia? Hahahahahahahahah!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh shit I'd love to see that attempt. Ponsy elves in a marsh? Yeah right they might get their boot dirty! Then whatever would they do? Black Marsh will never be conquored and The Aldmeri Dominion will crumble, high elves are the deffinition of Milk Drinkers, punch of loud mouthewd blow hards that can;t stand up in a real fight so they run away when their spells don't work. The Thalmor try to take over Black Marsh they'll be slaughtered ,maimed butchered and never seen again, just like everyone else that tried to take it over.

Personally I'd like to see Elsweyr and Black Marsh in the same game, maybe even Cyrodiil, or maybe Blackwood was apart of Black Marsh again, and County Layawiin was no more. (Am I the only one that took tremendous pleasure in viciously slaughtering Alessia Caro? and laying waste to Castle Layawiin as an Argonian?) Anywho...venting unbridle hatred at certain Imperials aside. Either province would be cool to see, both cultures are fascinating, and both would have guilds like the Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood in higher regard than in other provinces. Also I wonder whjat became of Morrowind after the Argonians drove the Dunmer out around 4E-6? Always wondered that.

Thieves Guild Dark Brotherhood...Oblivion and Skyrim, still easilly tghe two most entertaining guilds in TES. But The Companions are awesome as well. Fighters Guild was good in Oblivion as well.

Meh, I didn't really care for the Companions. I joined their inner circle after beating up a priestess and fetching a single wizard from a nord burial. Really unimppresive stuff that somehow put me in their ruling caste. Plus they didn't give me the choice to not be a werewolf, or...really do anything with choice. Fighter's Guild was fun though.

And I knoooow, they're the one nation with the power and resources to really take them on right now. The day The Dominion sets foot in Black Marsh is the day The Thalmor get absolutely, brain killing, strung out on moon sugar. They beat back and literaly chased Dagon's army back, Altmer have nothing on that.

Hmm, even if they don't wanna add Blacwood and Cyrodil back into the franchise, a ship could easily go from Soulrest to Senchal or Alabaster. Or Senchal/Alabastor to the old Shadowscale training facility in Archon.

And nah, I hated her too. I set up contracts against her and the count of Bravil. Him and his skooma sucking prat of a son.

Argonia's definately the place to be, even just to explore their conquered slice of Morrowind like you said.

I liked the companions plus being a werewolf is awesome.

The Thalmor are a joke, an absolute joke, tghe ida of them being so powerful is a laugh. The Embacy was a walk in the park! Fellglow Keep was more of a challenge to get through at 30 and up them summoners had power! o.o Also I have fought Argonian bandit mages, good grief they put a hurting on my characters! The Thalmor are a weak pathetic group, and while I backed the Empire against that xenophic prick Ulfric, if they can't defeat The Aldmeri Dominion, then The Empire does not deserve to exist. I think Skyrim should have gotten a DLC where The Dragonborn whipes out The Thalmor entirely just leads the Dovah into The Summerset Isles and obliterates them entirely

As for the count of Bravil and his kid? I created a character in Oblivion an old khajiit woman who had over 500 murders to her record a bunch of stolen horses and alot of stolen good. However most of her murders occured in the Imperial City and most where Imperial Legion guards, they really got destroyed. I also had her put a hurting on the Fighters Guild as well was part of her story. Also whiped out Castle bravil, killed the count and his son. Also slaughtered Alessia Caro with her as well. I always pictured her doing it then walking into Castle Chorol and dropping the body and the regilious freak of a mothers feet then taking the old crones head off with a daedric blade. ut Oblivion had it's limits on console. :)

Conquered slice? I thought Argonians drove the dunmer right out of Morrowind entirely? Into Solstiem and across Tamriel. o.O
