Hello guys, I'm looking forward to working on this mod with y'all.

Oh hey! Haven't seen you in a while. Welcome to the forum!

Very interesting.

 I have read SO MUCH khajiit lore, and The Two-moons dance is a martial art, and the masters of the Two-Moons Dance are trained in temples of Two Moons Dance. I have no recollection of an indication that the Two-Moons Dance would in any way refer to cult meetings.

Still, it's a nice quest idea, and I'm sure it'll work if some details are worked on.

I wouldn't recommend writing a lot of details if you don't know the lore. At the very least your writings must go through me, since I know pretty much everything about the Khajiit and Elsweyr.

I have no links to provide, I have no history in the community, I also don't even have the game or any mods (I did many years ago). With that said, here's my idea for a quest that myself and others can expand upon.

Preliminary information: This quest will be slightly different for a Khajit than any other race. See my note at the end.

Like in Morrowind, some Khajit are extremely xenophobic. There exists a small cult, (think of it as a self-contained assassin's guild) who worship a to-be-determined Khajit God (my Lore is not spot on, as you can see :)). They have a radical interpretation of this God's will and seek to keep the lands of Elsweyr pure and free of non-Khajit (we can make a word for this) taint. The cult is entirely secret but they have regular meetings. Where? No one can seem to figure that out; well, no outlanders, until it's too late.

The quest will begin while the PC is adventuring more deep inside Elsweyr (the cult does not target only superficial visitors, but rather those who seem to want to stay a while).

After a failed assassination attempt on the PC, the PC gains a quest where they can investigate this mysterious cult. As you can imagine, this proves difficult, because the locals fear retribution and would not risk their life for an outlander. After some poking around and strategic glad-handing, the PC receives a cryptic note. It reads, "I highly recommend reading The Dance of the Two Moons. My favorite passage is on page 4." Weird right? Well, if the player finds that book (which I will write), and goes to page four, there will be a poetic passage referring to a certain location. If the player ventures there and explores a bit, they'll find nothing obvious. That's just it. The meeting place of the cult will be in the trees, far up, and will require climbing (which the Khajit will obviously prefer.) But it's not that simple. The meetings only take place at certain times (also referred to in the book). When the two moons dance (this is well known Elsweyrian lore) is when the cult meets in the trees. 

Note: For Khajit's the quest will be gotten by interacting with a non-Khajit NPC who survives an assassination attempt and asks for the PC's help in understanding it.

This is all I got so far. What do you think?

The best way to let everyone know what you've written is to put a link to your stuff, in the comments on the writing thread.

Don't feel about for not knowing who I am -- how could you? :) I signed up yesterday after I saw your post, seemed interesting. Just a fan, I did enjoy Morrowind mods many many.. (many) years ago and still poke around to see what's new.

Not a lot written? That's great. Yea, I wouldn't mind writing something. What's the best way to proceed to make sure everyone is on the same page?

I am terribly sorry if I have completely forgotten who you are. Who are you?  ::)

About lore. Well, just what you'd expect from Elsweyr. There's sugar cane plantations, temple ruins, stuff like that. The capital, Mistral is described as a trading centre, so we have to consider that. Nothing big has been written about the place, it's basically free for us to add our own touch to the world. You can start writing away any concepts you have in your head, it will surely be of great help.

In terms of writing, what has already been published about the Lore of this area? Officially or unofficially.
General / PO resources!

I have contacted one of the biggest figures dealing with PO, and he is going to give us access to the resources, since PO seems dead. I will update this thread, and the assets thread once I have the download link.
