God knows there are many Elder Scrolls modders out there, but I think Nickies might be my favorite. The modder who once gave us the creation that allows you to order a real Domino’s Pizza from within The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion (opens in new tab)released a new mod last month and it’s as creative as ever. Cross-game Invader add-on for Oblivion (opens in new tab) and Morrowind allows you to transfer your Morrowind character to Oblivion and vice versa, giving you the opportunity to finally face your true enemy, yourself, in one-on-one combat.
Not you have fight of course. If you wish, you can use your character from one game as a companion in the other, or simply play as your character from one game in the mean streets of the other. To make the transition more seamless, the mod also lets you import spells and enchantments specific to the game at hand.
Given that Oblivion has pared down Morrowind’s broken and beautiful magic creation system (though not as much as Skyrim), this sounds like a great opportunity to sneak some deeply overpowered magic into the game.
In addition to these playful gimmicks, Nickies has added a new boss fight to the games, the Tonal Invader. If you defeat him in Morrowind, he will escape to Oblivion, so you must find him in this game to end the fight. Nickies says that “Variables like when you disarmed him in Morrowind carry over, making the boss fight a cohesive experience!”
Nickies implemented a “fairly basic story/lore framework” to justify the Tonal Invader’s presence, and packed the boss segments “with depth and Easter eggs” for players to find. The modder encourages “exploration and tinkering in the relevant areas” to uncover them all as you embark on your fast-paced, time-consuming adventure.
Installing the mod in both games is a bit more complex than putting an .esp file in the data files folder you would normally use to mod an Elder Scrolls game. But Nickies has detailed instructions on the mods pages on the Nexus website, and you don’t really need to do anything more complicated than open Notepad a few times.
If that sounds good to you, then you can find both oblivion (opens in new tab) And Morrowind (opens in new tab) Versions of the Cross-Game Invader add-on at Nexus Mods.
