A Quest For Understanding: The Last Beacons of Hope

An Immersive lore story line expansion, with Role Playing Game infused in its very core!

While we all enjoyed Oblivion, I think we can all agree that there was something missing from the formula. Choices and Consequences, memorable and interesting characters, quest diversity,more than one perspective, and a multitude of RPG elements. However with this mod there exists these beacons of light. They may be hidden by adversity, politics, stereotypes, fear, and hatred but.... If you can find these beacons and nurture their growth you can bring the light of diversity, intrigue, emotion, and understanding back to Cyrodiil!

This is a quest mod which takes elements from lore, past elder scrolls games, and quality western RPGs to bring you a completely new and improved questing experience!


1: Proper implementation into your game world. No giant buildings suddenly popping up in populated areas of cyrodiil, no sudden quest updates, no NPCs hunting you down to tell you about some grand opportunity. This mod will have no immediate impact on your world, there are countless things for you to do in this mod, but they are all for you to discover... not be forced on you.
2: New join-able guilds with quests and advancement systems unlike any other Oblivion guild.
3: More than 15,000 lines of dialogue
4:New, and interesting characters to meet, and develop alongside through dialogue, quests, and their reactions to both. Also we understand that aesthetics important like dialogue and gameplay; as such seeing as how the mod centers around the characters you meet we offer several facial options so you can customize your new friends and enemies to your liking. :)
5:Massive replayability thanks to a very non-linear and responsive quest and story structure.
6: Dozens of quests with diverse objectives, and ways to achieve them so the mod remains fresh all the way through, and even after.


The Shivering Isles DLC. Nothing else!

The topic for the non-integrated version


Download Integration: The Stranded Light


Possible isolated plugins with their own unique features and expansions on story/characters

Details, and background of features

Version 1.0 has been released as 4-11-11, with this the mod is finished, any further updates will be bug fixes, isolated add-ons, or technical updates.

In total, Integration: The Stranded Light offers more than 80 quests, five guilds, although of course not all quests are part of guilds. Additionally a whole lot of features, that will enhance Cyrodiil greatly.

An important aspect of Integration: The Stranded Light is discovery. A lot of mysteries and surprises are waiting for you to be found and solved. Over eighty quests. Five guilds, of which two are in direct conflict with each other. Choices and consequences. Very dialog heavy, including dialog trees, arguing and a lot more you won't see in Vanilla Oblivion. Use of the "Telvanni Tileset" and other resources for some unique places. The riddle of a lost city will play a role.

Changing the face of Cyrodiil sounds easy - just take a look at the smoldering ruins of Kvatch. How about changing the world for the better, for once? Every organisation begins small, with just a little headquarters somewhere. Though if you succeed in helping a guild to grow, attracting new members, an expansion may happen. Maybe an outpost here or there? What if their goal goes even further? There's enough unclaimed land on Cyrodiil's map for experiments!

Third-party optional add-ons:

(These are for the version with requirements, but they can easily be used with the Integrated version by changing the masters with Wrye bash)
As an additional gift there's also an Unique Clothes AddOn for EC available. Make sure to read the readme.

There's now another module: If you're unhappy with my faces, LazyMonk contributed an alternative to them. Use Wrye Bash's "Import NPC Face" feature for it. (Now if you're unhappy with both my faces and LazyMonks alternative faces, then I fear you'll have to edit the NPCs yourself .)

The Highly recommended Ohmes-Raht voice pack which gives Ohmes-Raht players and NPCs their own voice for greetings, combat grunts,etc.

3 small changes by Rylasasin. Read the readme for more info.

Better Telvanni normals by ishmaeltheforsaken. Improves tthe graphical quality ofthe telvanni tileset. (Alternate DL)

A dialogue mod by rylasasin adding race recognition and other such recognitions to the normal Oblivion quests. (Discussion topic)

I like to thank everyone who refrained from doing bloody frustrating things. It was you for whom I created Integration: The Stranded Light. I hope you'll enjoy the mod. And especially I like to thank everyone who had contributed resources, most importantly Bleral! !

The No requirements version is now......

Get it from here!

The quests, resources, installation, etc. are all reported to be working perfectly. All you need is Shivering Isles and the above download. Included in the above package is an installation option which will allow you to enjoy the quests, gameplay, stories, characters, and every amazing facet of Integration with NO impact on your game's core-gameplay experience!

Ever since I first heard about Integration I fell in love, so much so that any hoops I had to jump through to play it were not an issue, but what did disappoint me was how so many people were unable to play it due to some rather harsh and major game changing requirements. I liked the requirements, but I can understand the hesitation to try the mod with all that it required you to do, and I looked forward to the day that anyone and everyone could experience the pinnacle of quest/mission mods for themselves. Well that day has come. After roughly three months of development Integration: The Stranded Light Integrated is now available for all to enjoy. It's pretty much the same mod, just now with no requirements and no gameplay changes!

You all have been so helpful, especially prokiller and phoenix. Tahnk you all.
*** SPOILER ****
Re Stranded light: I am totally stuck on the "clues" in the "Oceans Lycenium" book. 5 days at it. read over 200 books in game, and a visit to the imperial library site (www - not in game). Please explain clues in the book, so i can cross the lines and find lycanium? BTW artists and romance quest totally fine - their clues make sense to me.

I explained the Elysium quest pretty well a while back on Gamefaqs so I'll link you to that:
It starts at around the 29th post.

If you just want the basic answer here's a screenshot I posted in that topic:

Did you try talking to all the Maormers? They have clues for you.

Hi. First, I have greathy enjoyed the mind challenging aspects of many of the quests in ItSL. I cannot see the walkthru videos... (public computer) so I am asking for some tips in specific quests from people who have already done them. I am stuck on a few. And not sure...


I have both Televani outposts established, and I visited each one later to check up. etc. Anymore to do?

help please ---->> I have key to, and been inside golden saint home in wall of Bliss, can't find journal....

help please ---->> same problem with house between the priory and hackdurt - found map, found her, but not find book...

I have a letter to deliver, and a poem to decipher to know to whom to deliver the letter. Somebody with a rose (not sanguine) and two men back to back...
---->>> What lore book(s)should I read? (My statue in Burma sports a rose - smile, was a surprise to me first time i saw it)

Finished medicine for the wife quest... was VERY HARD, but I analized to get the cure. Is a "meat Pact" and "Green Pact" something from Lore?

I did find a "date" for the guild guide, and completed the quest. Had three choices. Does it matter which one?

Thank you, whoever replies, in advance.

*spoilers obviously*
1: Gain fame, and read the spoiler file included in the mod

2:The journal is in the cellar, it's on a pillar across from where the bed is. You can either jump for it, or use telekinesis

3: The book is in between the urns inside the house

4: Truth is, I've never found the spot to deliver the letter. I could probably look it up it in the CS but I din't want to spoil it for me. The two men back to back is fighters and mages guild. The one in Cheydinhal fits that description.

5: Green pact is a Bosmer thing. They have this insane love of nature, and they won't eat any plants. So they eat only meat, and part of that religion requires you to eat anything you kill... or something like that.

6:Dion is the correct one, and you need to tell him that "she's alright". There was a similar quest in the Morrowind expansion: Tribunal.

As for the 19 voids thing, it's not required, and the reward at the end is even just a novelty. There are some things related to that quest though (comments, small stuff in the romance, and a check in one of the art guild quests.)

Hi fenix, Prokiller, et al:

Having lots of fun w Stranded light. The romance is so realistic- and scary. Anyway, I was never able to deliver the letter via drop off, either. Giving it to him directly resulted in hom "dissapearing."

-->> Help please, *** SPOILER ALERT ****

I have experienced most of the quests. However, I have been stuck for four / five days now on the oceans elysium quest. Have the book, chatted up everyone, a few clues only, the book, color - coded, and king's name, also colorcoded. Guess i am lore deficient: read every book I can find.. over 200. Still clueless where to look. Tried circles, IC tower, IC walls, road, river around ISle, read road, broken by talos bridge, etc. Would you please give me some really dumned down clue or explanations of the the 5 cluese in the book? So I can cross the lines and find Elysium - get on with the story? Please... (not covered by u-tube, BTW). Tahnks, thanks, thanks,

Yeah, they sort of are pretty bad. I think a text walkthrough would be better.

Hi prokiller, migth you have help on this one: My game crashed RARELY, once every 5 or 6 hours of playing. However, when i go to 19 voids, and sleep TWICE on the bed, I hear bubbling water sounds and CTD. I have tried many workl arounds, come with very few items, save just before entering, and then shutting down PC. Restarting, and sleeping. Since the bed initiates the quest, i can't use the console to force the update past the crash point. DO you know how I might get past this? I hope it is not an essential quest, but optional, otherwise, I'm done... (sad...) Thanks ... elana

I had a problem like that were it just crashed, it eventually came to a stop but I'm still unsure why it happened and how it stopped. Totally clueless mate.
