This blog was inspired by the author of “Living in Oblivion” and “The Elder Strolls“, Christopher Livingston. He had a concept that piqued the interest of many, could he survive playing, “The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion“, as a normal everyday NPC. He later went on to try the experiment in “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim“. Both blogs were successful, not for the experiment mind you, but because of the way, he wrote them. He took the readers on an adventure or rather non-adventure, using his wit and humor to write the stories of his character. I have also drawn inspiration from others who have also taken up the mantle of a wandering NPC. Also, I found inspiration from writers who have written and are writing some very good Elder Scrolls Fan-Fictions.
Below you will find a short list of writers and/or blogs I feel have directly influenced me and “The Misadventures of Zander”.
Living in Oblivion: The Blog that started it all.
The Elder Strolls: The follow-up to “Living in Oblivion”.
An Orc’s Life: Follow Grawnk the Orc through Skyrim as he tries to figure out his place in the world.
Prequel: Also known as “Making a Cat Cry: The Adventure.” An interactive story that I think everyone would enjoy.
Skyrim: Epic Disasters and Other Tales: Follow the journey of Elspeth Aurilie as she travels through Skyrim trying to fulfill her destiny as the Dragonborn.
Erica North: A fantastic author with some great original Fiction as well as some amazing Skyrim Fan-Fiction.
