Ever wondered why the Cultists die? by FoolishLittleMortal Ever wondered why the Cultists die? by FoolishLittleMortal
Poor Molag Bal. :iconscarsurroundedplz: Surrounded by idiots. :lol: 

If you never saw a Dark Anchor opening, here's a video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=2rLrBr…

I never really questioned why some of the Cultists die. My guess is Molag is kind of a d*ck. It's quite expected from him. ;)
But at some point during my first beta I found an Anchor. There were no Cultists or Daedra, so I could have a good look at it. I noticed the Daedric writings and decided to decipher them. I was amused. :B

His comment in the 2nd panel is basically my reaction on Dark Anchors during the two beta's I participated in.
I found a few Anchors during those beta's. They were always open. But there were no Worm Cultists or Daedra anywhere...
Then at the end of the weekend, while I was gathering plants and crab meat I suddenly heard the sound of an Anchor activating. I didn't know how fast I had to drop my crap and run as fast as I can (and swim across a river) to get to it. :XD:


Yes I know the quality of this comic is not so great. The Anchors look very crappy, I drew stick figures and I even used a screenshot! *le gasp!*
At least Molag Bal looks ok-ish? :B

Might be his Ehlnofex name, like how Lorkhan is LKHAN and Akatosh is AKHAT, maybe Molag Bal is MULAG BHL.

His voice in Skyrim makes him sound like an old man, no wonder he's cranky :D

He didn't sound as old man at all lol Actually his voice in Skyrim must have been only thing that was good about him.

Still the one voice of deadra that disturbed me most in Skyrim was Merida's ... simply because her VA well was same VA of Meridith from DA2 ...so I have hard time taking Merida seriously because of it xD

Each time Merida spoke I had to mute game because I just...can't...I just can't take her with that voice seriously after DA2 at all xD
Each time I hear Merida I always think of crazed Knight-Commander that saw blood magic everywhere,calling all mages and magic evil,accusing everyone of being blood mage and in end went on murder rampage that in end resulted in her turning in lyrium statue and now kids play dare on who dares to poke Meridith with stick....so seriously I can't take Merida from Skyrim seriously at all thanks to that voice because each time I think of Meridith and what joke she was in game xD
Plus similar names Merida/Meridith not to mention that Merida is obsessed with her hate with undead while Meridith was obsessed with her hate for mages................yup it makes me see Meridith in Merida even more XD So I'm never able and never will be to take Merida seriously ever again after this VA lol

So you weren't the only one who noticed ^^ :D
I do not like Molag too much... even if he looks pretty nifty. So i do not really feel sorry for him and enjoy taking down those pesky dark anchors hehe.

Have you seen... they made it an achievement to destroy our favorite daedric pirate lord :-/ ...
good thing Daedra cannot be really destroyed and only send back to Obivion (even not clear if Umariel is destroyed for real or just sorting himself out in the dreamsleeve)

Yes, I know about the Achievement.

I like fighting the Dark Anchors though. Every time I hear one activate I stop whatever I'm doing and run to it. xD;

I don't mind the issues you brought up in the comments. they went together nicely and the simple stick characters gave the right perspective. It didn't matter if we got to see their fine details especially in a small comic strip. Garfeild and comics like it are prefect examples. 

Also it's funny not to mention cool that you figured this out. Great observation.

Is it any wonder the Anchors are always Hit and Miss with functionality? XD Not only is the typo sucking in random cultists, it's also breaking the anchor portal connections :P

Omfg. I'm still shaken with laughter. This is, where modern education, short-massage communication, and book-nihilation leads: nobody is able to do a proper daedralord conjuration. But who cares when everybody knows what is meant (this is the standard answer I get when I'm complaining about lousy spelling and grammatic in chats) So, silly Molag Bal: don't be a pussy, you should know that you are meant. :p

Of course he is a d... what do you expect from a rapist. :(
