I'mmmm baaaack!!!!

For those wondering why I haven't posted anything in a while, its because I got a new job and had to move to a new city. Only recently did I get internet back, yay!!!
I'm real sensitive about my privacy. This is the only known picture of me that exists on the internet:

And I'm really happy about that. I'll be happy if that is the only known picture of me for the rest of my life.

Secret Keys

Several players wrote in to ask me about the secret keys in The Rabbit Hole. Where are they? What are they good for? So I made a video that explains the whole thing:

As always, a text version of this walkthrough is available on the zoywiki:

Bug Fixes!

Moar bugs Nom Nom Nom!!!
Just spent last weekend fixing a load of bugs that where reported and collated on this wiki:

I've been watching this guys playthroughs, which are honestly a little to long, and can be boring at times (he REALLY needs to edit out all the loading screens) but some moments are just golden! The link below should jump you to the best part:

Also: Thanks to everyone for your feedback on part 2! If you haven't made a comment yet, please do! The voting is still open

Need Suggestions

So this weekend I will be turning my attention back to The Dark Brotherhood Resurrection, since The Rabbit Hole has shipped, and is pretty much bug-free at this point.

I already have some ideas for what Averna and Stabby will be doing in part 2, the quests they will ask you to undertake. What's not certain is what the Listener's focus will be, so i'm asking for some input.
I had originally intended to tell the tale of the Listener establishing outposts and new sanctuaries around Tamriel, but the mod "The Black Hand Embassy" seems to be covering that (of course I could still tell the same story but from my vision)

So i'm asking anyone who still reads this blog for input. What should the main focus of part 2 be?

  1. The Dark Brotherhood restoring to their full glory
  2. The Dark Brotherhood vs. The Morag Tong
  3. The Dark Brotherhood vs. a New, unforeseen enemy
  4. More evil goldsmiths to kill, ala Part 1?
Leave your suggestions in the comments! Or email me at

Bug Scrub

So now that the Rabbit Hole has shipped (which has been getting pretty positive feeback BTW)
I am turning my attention back to the Dark Brotherhood Resurrection. I went through all my old emails, answered all the ones I had failed to answer (sorry about the delays guys) and all the old comments I hadn't read. I collated all the bug reports into one single page:

This is my TODO list for the next few weeks. Will be working on this and bug fixes for the Rabbit Hole, so progress may be slow.

In addition, at work I am busy shipping an ALPHA for our new game. Should be announced next Monday. Wish I could tell you more, but unfortunately I can't say any more than what Dan Shoe has already said:

The Rabbit Hole Shipped!

It's always a great sigh of relief when I ship another Mod. And then the horror kicks in as I wonder if people will hate it. So far though, feedback has been positive. (admittedly, as of this post, it has only been live for an hour)

YES! finally, i have been waiting for this since the first screenshots, and i see just randomly under new, this is my day- gamecreatorjj
You're a genius.- Xillante

See what I mean? Only up for an hour and it already has raving reviews! This really makes me feel like all the long hours working late where worth it!
Special thanks has to go to dan.sherlock and kaylax87 for their help and encouragement!

You can grab the mod now at the Skyrim Nexus:

One Week

Exactly One week until my next mod: "The Rabbit Hole" is released, just in time for Easter!

I know a lot of people wanted me to move straight on to Part II of the Dark Brotherhood Resurrection, but I needed a break.

Also: I have learned SO very very much working on the Rabbit Hole. You may not realize this, because DBR was so good, but it was my very first mod for an Elder Scrolls game. There where a lot of newb mistakes. I had a bunch of ideas for part II that I wanted to do, but wasn't sure how to make it happen. Now that I've worked on the Rabbit Hole, I've learned how to make some of these ideas come to life.

Also, The Rabbit Hole is related, although very indirectly, to the DBR. You will find some of Stabby's writings in the Rabbit Hole linking the to mods together narratively.

So stay tuned, and I hope you'll all enjoy my next mod when it comes out!
