The Gweden Report

The Gweden Report chronicles the adventures of a reporter, who is not the player character.

The Champion of Cyrodiil is also the Madgod, Arch-Mage, Master of the Fighters Guild, Arena Grand Champion, and Listener of the Dark Brotherhood. He is not the Guildmaster of the Thieves Guild, however. He is male, but of indeterminate race, and generally quite likeable, if the reports given are accurate. Most of what we learn about him will be third-hand.

This all means that everything depicted takes part after the Oblivion Crisis is over, and things are back to normal. There are closed gates all across the countryside, and Arch-mage Traven, Mannimarco and Lucien Lachance are all dead.

Everything that the reporter writes about, or experiences for himself, is part of the standard TES IV: Oblivion game with the Shivering Isles expansion, plus a number of my own mods. Those are: Gweden Brothel, which allows Tsarrina to survive the Sirens Deception quest and open the farm as a brothel; The Rumple Mod, which adds a cadre of bear-rider women, based on an advertisement for Rumple Minze schnapps, to patrol the mountain trails; and the as-yet-unreleased Devilish and Divine, which adds a pair of sisters as the player's companions.

The latest additions relate to an extension of the Thieves Guild quest line performing quests for Nocturnal in Evergloam.

  • Parts 1 and 2 introduce the reporter on his way down to Gweden Farm from the city.
  • Parts 3 to 18 cover his interviews with the women, and their stories of the Champion.
  • Part 19 is a summary of his visit, as he decides what he can put in the article.
  • Parts 20 and 21 cover a visit to an alchemist who is related to one of the prostitutes.
  • Parts 22 to 28 relate the reporters involvement with the Champion's other brothel in the Imperial City.
  • Parts 29 to 36 cover his activities with cross-border incidents.
  • Parts 37 to 45 involve his purchase of the waterfront shack, and finding two young women in the basement.

  • Parts 48 to 55 are further exploits that start in the Red Dragon Club.
  • Parts 56 to 63 are a single mod quest, escorting a Queen and Princess across Cyrodiil.

  • Parts 67 to 72 relate to the brothel at New Sheoth in the Shivering Isles.

Some of these will also link to the tales of the Imperial Legion Mountain Riders (the Bear Babes) as he writes a book about their adventures.

Clark also turns up in Skyrim (thanks to being made immortal by Nocturnal and Azura), where he is not the Dragonborn, but observes many of that person's adventures. Read about it in the Clark Chronicles.
