    I heard the new Bishop voice. A bit heavy? I mean, not as smart assy as the original, which I at first found horrifically offensive, then–once he mellowed out a bit (misogynist much?) was charming and entertaining.

    I mean, we’re the Dragonborn in game, so uhhh him aggressively calling the player a “stupid wench”.. I mean.. you could make his brain disintegrate with a single word so that was a bit much. You’re literally wearing the skins of your countless hand-slain dragon brethren as a coat, this guy’s got a knife and a bow–no comparison. Much more importantly, it is NEVER acceptable for a man to call a woman stupid, and it’s certainly not cute. The added insult that we’re expected to giggle and drool over it? Made my stomach shrivel. Came across as sexist, and there was a missed opportunity in not explaining later that maybe, I dunno, Bishop has gone through some s*** and he was unnecessarily hostile and guarded toward everyone but especially women, but it was just a front/mistake and he APOLOGIZES and redeems himself. Definitely would help send less of a “women are subservient idiots who find it arousing to be treated like dirtbags” message.. I saw the intention and ignored the problem to get to the end result, but there are definitely subtler ways of making someone difficult/dominant to prove their not a sycophant. There is a huge difference between enjoying being dominated sexually and having someone emotionally abuse you.

    Crap. Sorry. The feminist in me must have really had that pent up… I DIGRESS!: some of Bishop’s later, romantic lines would have been a bit hokey if the voice actor hadn’t injected the air of humor and irreverence that he did. I’m sure you’re working hard on a great extension. Maybe just tell the new voice actor to, ya know, lighten up a bit.

    I really did enjoy having a romance mod, and I think there were some very steamy bits that successfully left me wanting more (even better if a SexLab add came about because this lady does’t like a tease), which is why I feel I can give the criticisms as well. If it was crap, I wouldn’t bother. It would just be crap, and it’s not. It’s a super enjoyable mod that clearly had a lot of work put into it. Thanks for that hard work and good luck with the follow-up. PS Cael is just… mm hm. Beautiful. Looking forward to more of that hypnotic Forsworn, for sure.

    Sounds fantastic.Bishop is my favorite but Vinsen the Vampire sounds interesting lol. This mod is just amazing. I don’t think I would ever be satisfied using vanilla followers again. You and your team have really done amazing work on this mod. Iam totally addicted to it lol.

    After marrying Bishop, I tried to use Spouses Enhanced from LL and it doesn’t work with Bishop. I tried to marry him the normal way but the stubborn guy keeps repeating: Not because you have the amulet, blah, blah, blah. Has anyone been able to make it work with this mod? Other mods from LL work fine with him but I have a hard time with some dialogs. Console commands don’t work either. I have expressed already several times,how much I like this mod, some more tweaks and it will be perfect. The Cael’s option I won’t be pursuing, he was my least favorite, remind me of husband #2, very smooth talker until he put the ring on my finger ,lol. Regarding Bishop’s voice, although is awesome, I am sure Mara will find someone better and sexier;. It seems nothing can’t stop this lady from creating the perfect mod, not even the meanies at Nexus and the ones that left. I bet after a couple of days playing with the new voice we won’t even remember the original Bishop’s voice, so I am not worried about that at all.

      @Evi try downloading the Beta 1.1 version that should work with Spouses Enhanced!

    @Hana AFT allows you to adjust which of a follower’s stats take priority upon levelling up, but not the actual base stats. If you’d like, I can add you on Steam and walk you through the Creation Kit process. It’s more a matter of adjusting Bishop’s weapon values than Bishop himself.

  9. Hana February 23, 2015 at 9:20 pm - Reply

    @Adam Howe No, I’m afraid I don’t have any experience with the creation kit. I have Bishop under Amazing Follower Tweaks though, if I can do anything from there?

      I’m sorry Maaku, it was not my decision. The voice actor didn’t want to be apart of it anymore.

    So stoked about this! Cael is really shaping up to be such a great character. I think people are really going to thoroughly enjoy him. I’m loving the story so far!

    As I’ve said before, I’m IN LOVE with this mod! Since marrying Bishop in my game, I’ve loved him as a follower! I can’t wait to see the what other in depth characters arise! I would definitely like to see Bishop’s romance expanded a bit more after marriage, at least as far as the dialogue goes. Amazing work so far!!

    @Neko, unfortunately no. But don’t worry, Mara will find someone like him.

    Oh really, you`re making bards? C:
    And I`m really waiting forward to hear Bishop`s new voice when you find a new VA yet I`ll be missing the old one anyway.

    So, Bishop won’t have the same voice as in the first mod?

  18. Adam Howe February 20, 2015 at 8:37 pm - Reply

    @Hana Do you have any experience with the Creation Kit? You can edit Bishop’s stats and weapon details there.

  19. Lizz February 20, 2015 at 8:22 pm - Reply

    I’m never going to get you to stop calling me Sparkles, am I? Bah, take your time on finding Bishop’s actor. Let Cael have the spotlight this time around. -Is personally amazed how many people still like Bishop.- Oh well, to each there own.
    I’m glad you’re interested in him, as I’m the one writing him. I’ll do my best so the people who like the vampire stuff won’t be disappointed.

    I’m so excited to hear that the mod is going so well! I have a bit of a question though. Will you add the ability to edit Bishop’s stats and attack power. I got him early in the game and Bishop alway felt too powerful for me, being able to kill many creatures in a single shot of his bow. I’d love to have Bishop follow me with l out him stealing kills, and I hope you put this into consideration. Thank you and I look forward to future installments! 🙂

    The Hagravens need raspy voices, I feel like any of these wonderful voice actors that are female could do it.. But it does strain your voice so I can understand, can’t wait till its out!

    @Al Any mod archive is compatible with Nexus Mod Manager; the mod itself does not have to be drawn directly from the Nexus. You simply just need to drag and drop the downloaded mod archive over your mod library in NMM to add it.

  23. Al February 20, 2015 at 12:32 am - Reply

    Omigash. *-* I can’t wait.
    Quick question: Will the future updates be compatible with NMM, even if this mod isn’t on the Nexus anymore?

    And I am looooving the mod; Bishop has a strong personality, and it was portrayed VERY well in you and your teams’ writing.
    Some of the things he says… *fans face*. Not to mention everyone’s voice acting. They sound extremely professional and just overall amazing.
    Thankyouthankyouthankyou for all of the work put forth for this amazing mod. <3

    Ah, so awesome! I’m busting my butt over here so I can help you soon! Keep up the amazing work, Mara!

    Idea; don’t know if it would be possible as I know nothing of modding, but I feel in the Bishop-Character relationship, there should be an alternate banter/conversation between Bishop and the other characters if the Bishop and player are married! Example, I met Thorn and his gang after marrying Bishop, as much as Bishop stood up for player, I think he would have been a tiny bit more hostile towards them the way they were talking about his wife (; SO excited for future development! Make sure Bishops voice is still as sexy please and thank you <3
