Thanks everyone for your comments and votes!

The blade is the Requiem sword which originally came with dragons on its hilt. I asked a friend to snip off the dragons because I preferred the sword without them. I believe in the meantime, a non-dragon version has also been made available as a mod. I will try to find the link for both versions, and post it later. I assume it is OK to post links to mods on this thread? I am new to this site. smile

Hi Commander_Nova! Thank you for the compliment and the link to this Forum.
After seeing that great shot of yours the other day and your link to this Forum, I checked out the site - lots of cool screenies here!

@ Jager_57 and Big_cheese - Unfortunately this thread only allowed me to send them the dialup version of this screenie - which is 120K. The fullsize version is 1.2MB and shows the details more clearly - the dead one is actually a girl and her eyes look a little more "bugged" out.

Thanks humble_downloader for your toast and support! This was my first screenie I have sent to this site so I am happy it even got picked!

Regarding the Requiem sword - see post #11 too - I did look for the links and wrote some friends, but the links don't seem to exist any longer. If someone knows where this mod went to, that would be good to know. Thanks!

Nice PotD although I don't really like the caption, maybe if it was from the left side of the redhead it would be better for me. it's a great PotD though 9/10

That is a pretty close call The dead guys face reminds me of the time i raised my marksmen to 900 (cheated) and threw a ninja star and the guard walked right in front of it.

I believe that the one being stabbed is a woman. Most likely a High Elf.

Well, after much digging, CIA contacts, dropoff points, being caught in an atempt to bring down the embassy, and my least favorite, getting trapped on a remote island, i have tracked this sword back to the French. Darn those Frenchies and their fancy wines! Not sure if the link on this site works though, for i havent tried dling it yet. I have yet to find my true prize, the version without the dragons on the hilt, as seen in the above pic. If the dl link doesnt work, then search around yourself, Im sure the creator of the mod's name is somewhere on this page. Good hunting!

oh.... just a word of advice, that mod is french, so if you use it, it might conflict with your game if you dont have the french version. To avoid this, i would simply only use the textures and meshes files to create your own sword with the CS

if you want the sword:
1.) Heres the full french version:


2.) Replace the .esp file with this(if you want english version):


3.) Replace meshes file with this(original had glitches with havoc, readme included for this dl)


note that all of these files are 7zip, so youll need 7zip or 7zip compatible unzipping programs

Good job retrieving that, DELTA! Rock I gave up after discovering the dead links on the French site and asking some friends.

I have been using that sword for a while and would not have posted this pic if I thought the mod links were dead. I very much appreciate this, DELTA... the lynch mob in front of my place has now started to disperse. smile

Regarding the titles of this screenie: I wasn't sure how the titles would look when I filled out the form for the pic (since this was my first), and would not have included the subtitles. Well, next time...

Thanks everyone for the comments and votes!

i just hope the word gets out before this pic is replacedsmile Those who want the alsome sword, follow the steps on #31, and ignore my ranting before that... Thanks greatfool1, it took me a while to hunt down the working links on that forum. I was surprised at the fact that i actually like the version with the dragons better.big grin

hmm the onlything wrong with it, is that her hand is in the wrong spot. it should be on the top of the hilt. not on the bottom of it. 10/10 otherwise

I am glad another POTD finally came up too, Azrune... Not sure why it is called "Picture of the Day" if it takes several days for a new one, but "Picture of Every Two or Three Days or So" just doesn't sound right. wink

@ BadHairDay (#34) - I thought the same thing at first, but upon reconsidering it, I disagree with you. It seems like the way she is holding the blade is how it would happen.
