Version 1.4 of The Romancing of Eyja quest mod. This mod adds a quest to date and win the affections of your maid Eyja (if you have Rosethorn Hall). Updates include a curtain system that allows you to open and close curtain in the house, package tweaks,
Introduction: This is a mod designed to add romance to Oblivion, and make life at Rosethorn Hall much better. I found the maid you hire when purchasing Rosethorn Hall's servants quarters pretty lackluster, yet I saw a lot of potential in her. At first I just wanted a sexy servant, but as time went on, and people on the ES forums expressed interest in romance, I decided to add quests, animations, more and more, and here we are, 4 months later, with a highly anticipated mod. I've put a lot of hours into this, a lot of it learning how to do the impossible, but nevertheless it's been a rewarding experience. Now I can only hope the world will enjoy my this as much as I have.
3 multi part Quests to date her and win her heart.
Eyja is younger looking and wears make up now. I did not alter her face much from the original, but the difference is amazing.
Voice acting all reconstructed from original sounds to make new sounds, so she sounds like an authentic Nord. Eyja has around 65 new lines, all reconstructed from the original Lynda Carter voices that played the nords in Oblivion.
3 New maids outfits
New Dress for the big date and custom hair
Swimming suit and wet hair
New swimming pool Eyja swims in each day. (wears swim suit an has special wet hair model for that package)
Fully functional wardrobe. The user can make her wear what they want by placing items in the drawers.
Tons of packages. You never know what Eyja might be doing.
Variety of clothing she wears.
One custom animation of her scrubbing the floor.
ReUse of unique animations
Small tweaks to Rosethorn hall, like a bigger basement, better lighting, custom swimming pool, billiards table.
*NOTE! YOU WILL NEED THE OFFICIAL OBLIVION 1.1 PATCH OR YOU WILL GET CRASHES AND COLLISION ISSUES
Extract everything to your Oblivion/data folder folder and click yes when prompted to overwrite everything. Check mark the Eyja.esp file under data files. Once your in the game, go purchase Rosethorn Hall, and the servants quarters, and then hire Eyja to work for you. If you already own the hall, the old servant will go away and you'll still have to hire the new one. She hangs around Colovian traders. To begin dating her, ask about her, and then click "Romance Eyja". I'd let her settle in though first, get her new maids dress on, and get used to her just as a maid first, before popping the big romance question on her, just so you can fully appreciate her attitude change.
None. Luckily a few leads that churned up at the last minute lead to fixing every last little issue there was.
Frequently asked questions:
I am a female argonian. Can I still date Eyja?
Yes. Eyja does not discriminate. There are a few lines of dialogue that are said assuming the PC is male, but that shouldn't ruin the experience.
Can I change her clothes?
Yes. You can put whatever you want in her wardrobe cabinet and she will wear it.
How does her wardrobe work?
It has a drawer menu in it for each day of the week, and special drawers for adventure, lingerie, swim wear, etc.
Can I take Eyja with me on adventures?
Yes, after you win her heart there is a simple follow/go home command option.
Is there nudity or any hot coffee action?
No, this is a romance mod, not p0rn.
I love her clothing. Will you make a separate release so I can get use her clothing?
Probably. But not until after this mod is done.
What body are you using?
All sorts of them. Bodies are integrated into the clothing. I used Stock Bethesda stuff for the clothing with some model/uv changes, but enhanced her full figure appearance on the models/meshes, and used BIU's body for the lingerie and swimwear, with some small tweaks.
Do I need a body mod for this mod?
Can I run a body mod with this mod?
Is it compatible with OOO 1.3?
Yes. You might place it below OOO in mod manager, but it probably doesn't matter either way.
Is the other Rosethorn hall mod compatible with this?
No, but it doesn't have a hot servant and a million features either. You'll have to decide.
Is the billiards table optional?
Nope, delete it in the CS if you don't want it there.
Can I play pool?
No, but you can knock the pearl around on the table with a sword and it might fall in the hole, I haven't messed with it much. I just had it laying around and threw it in there a long time ago.
I don't like how Eyja looks. Can you make her a mystic elf?
No. But you can edit her in the CS if you want. Eyja is the same as the stock game except younger and with make up. I reduced her lips after ten million people requested it, other than that her face is the same.
I like the hair. Can I wear it with my character?
You can, but it's brunette only. It doesn't change color like normal hair, it's like a wig.
Eyja is just laying in bed after the date, what do I do? Hehehe... you really need some experience eh? Try sleeping with her.
