Smolder Scrolls Online is a brief 'Choose Your Own Adventure'-style visual novel game released on the ESO website to celebrate Valentine's Day 2020. In it, there are separate scenarios for Razum-dar, Naryu Virian, and Darien Gautier, who each have a Romance, Friends, and Enemies ending. It was updated for Valentine's Day 2021 to add Eveli Sharp-Arrow and Fennorian, who have a Neutral ending in addition to the other three. The game can be found here.

As the scenario progresses, you are given 3 different opportunities to pick a response. Each has a positive response that increases your status with the character, and another that is negative. The positive choice gives +1 to your score, and the negative gives -1. Different options may occur depending on your score at certain points. Each possible outcome of the story includes an ending message and a tweet to share about the game.

Razum-dar[edit]

Out of breath and soaked with rain, you and Razum-dar take refuge in a cozy tavern after a treacherous chase. You outran your latest enemy and, for what feels like the first time in weeks, you finally have a moment to breathe.

You're in a back room, warming yourself by a roaring fire while Raz speaks to the innkeeper about preparing your rooms. After a few minutes, the Khajiit appears in the doorway with drinks in hand. He flashes you a smile as he sits beside you.

"That was a close one, yes? Closer than Raz is usually comfortable with. But we should be safe here, so long as we lie low, enjoying the drinks and perhaps one another's company?"

"The innkeeper was a bit suspicious, so Raz told him the two of us are recently married, deeply in love, and on our honeymoon. The man said we make a beautiful couple, which of course Raz already knew."

"This one hopes you do not mind."

"I don't mind." (+1)
"Raz knew you would approve! It will be fun to pretend, yes? Perhaps you could sit on Raz's lap to help convince everyone. Ha!"
"You embarrassed me." (-1)
"Ah, deepest apologies. That was not this one's intention. Raz assumed you would find it amusing. An error on his part."

"At any rate, Raz is glad we made it here and that you are unharmed. It is a relief to have a moment to rest and know that we are safe after so many days of uncertainty."

"We should enjoy it while it lasts."

"Raz almost wishes we were a young married couple without a care in the world. No responsibilities. No duties to uphold. Nothing to concern our hearts with but our love for each other."

"I'd rather soak my head." (-1)
"Raz does not think there is any need to be rude about it. It is clear to him now that you are not in a joking mood."
"We have been traveling together for some time. Perhaps you are sick of Raz. You would not be the first."
Raz frowns into his tankard and then takes a hearty gulp. After, he wrenches his arm across his mouth.
He puts the tankard down on the table hard enough to make the contents slosh around. Raz sighs and gives you a sidelong glance.
"I wish that too, Raz." (+1)
"You do? Raz is surprised. You never mentioned such a thing before. He is not complaining, of course."
"This one will admit, he did not intend to become so fond of you, but he has. Raz often catches himself staring at your figure in crowded rooms, picturing you and him together in much… less crowded spaces. Perhaps you have had the same problem?"
Raz grins and moves his chair closer to yours. Your shoulders brush and you feel the warmth of his closeness against you.
His hand drifts along your knee, claws catching softly against the fabric there. He chuckles in your ear, sending shivers down your spine, before pulling away.

"Say what you will about our adventures together … Raz cannot deny he has enjoyed himself."

"We've had much excitement, yes? Not all of it good, but not all of it bad, either. Raz has worried through his fair share of it. You tend to be a source of distraction for him. Raz did not expect someone so stimulating, or attractive, to come into his life, after all."

"Hmm. This one begins to suspect his little lie about the two of us being married was a bit more indulgent on his part than he first admitted. That perhaps he has fallen for you, despite his best efforts. What do you think?"

"I think you look incredibly handsome right now." (+1)
"Ah ha! Raz thinks so too, but hearing you say it excites him in a way that is most intoxicating. You are a wondrous, endlessly surprising creature, did you know that? By the Moons...."

Romance[edit]

[Hearts float across the screen]

Raz leans forward, closing the distance between the two of you. This close, you can smell the damp leather of his armor and see the flames of the fire dancing in his green eyes.

"Long has this one wished to stare into your eyes like this. A shame we waited this long."

"Of course, our adventures are far from over. Raz knows there is much in store for us still. Now, come. If we are to keep our friendly innkeeper unsuspecting, the young couple should retire to their room for the night, yes?"

Raz chuckles softly, his eyes flashing with amusement. His gaze traces your face fondly for a moment, as if he hopes to memorize you, before he stands.

He offers you his arm with a dashing grin and keeps you close to his side as the two of you climb the stairs and adjourn to your room for the night.

End

Razum-dar might be the Eye of the Queen, but you're the apple of his eye.

Friends[edit]

Raz chuckles, his eyes glittering.

"You joke with Raz. You always know how to make him laugh, yes?"

"You are a good friend, you know. This one is glad to have met you. Shall we drink to our adventures? Raz hopes there will be many more to come."

Raz sits back and raises his tankard with a dashing smile. He gestures it toward you with a nod of warm approval.

The two of you drink long into the night, regaling each other with stories of your exploits and laughing so hard the innkeeper eventually has to scold you for it.

End

Even Razum-dar needs someone to count on--he's glad he has you for a friend!

Enemies[edit]

Raz scoffs and shakes his head, his lip curling in a snarl.

"Raz can see you are obviously not interested in his company tonight."

"Perhaps come morning you will have a change of heart, but Raz will not hold his breath. Good night."

Raz stands from the table, taking his drink with him.

He stomps away to the other side of the tavern, leaving you alone by the fire. The two of you do not speak for the rest of the night.

End

Looks like you razzed Razum-dar a bit too hard and made an enemy out of him!

Naryu[edit]

Balmora background
Naryu, neutral

Naryu, happy

You stand awkwardly on a cobblestone street of Balmora as Naryu looks you up and down with a scrutinizing eye. She invited you to the House Hlaalu Masquerade Ball tonight, hosted by an important Hlaalu counsilor [sic], but hasn't told you why she's brought you along.

The Dark Elf circles you once, assessing your ball attire. After a moment, she gives a satisfied hum of approval and comes to stand across from you again.

"Well, well… you certainly clean up nicely, don't you, hero? You look divine. Every eye will be on you tonight."

"I know I haven’t exactly been forthcoming about what we're doing here, but I assure you it's all well in hand. You just need to stand around and look enticing while I work. Should be easy for you."

"Think you can handle that?"

"I hate running your errands for you." (-1)
"It's not an errand. It's a job that I need your help with. I've helped you in the past, have I not? I'm simply calling in a favor."
"If it means I get to spend time with you, then sure." (+1)
"Well, aren't you sweet? And here I was thinking I'd have to twist your arm to get you into formal wear."

"Anyway, the job is simple. It requires very little effort on your part. I invited you to play a very small, but vital, role in tonight's proceedings. I trust you, and my trust is not something easily gained. So don't screw this up.

"If all goes well, I should be done inside an hour. Then you can relax and even enjoy the party, if you so choose."

"Perhaps you'll even find a dashing suitor to dance with."

"I’d rather dance with you." (+1)
"Oh? You are always so full of surprises, my darling. I suppose I could arrange that, after my business is done. I imagine I'll have to chase away the other s'wits lining up to ask you, won’t I?"
"Maybe we should practice for good measure. This is quite an important social event. It won't do to embarrass ourselves."
Naryu steps closer to you, one hand coming to rest on your waist, the other on your shoulder. She presses close and stares deeply into your eyes, a smirk curling her lips. She leans in a little, so close you can feel her breath on your bottom lip.
You feel a sharp edge against your side and realize she's pulled her dagger. It lingers at your ribs for a moment before Naryu laughs and pulls away from you. Her red eyes glitter with amusement. And something more.
"I just want to get this over with, Naryu." (-1)
[If Score is at least 0]
"All right, all right. No dancing for you. But I will insist you try the wine while you're milling about the ball. It would be a crime to let it go to waste."
"Oh, don't look so dour, my darling. A little party won't kill you, will it? It might even be a nice change of pace. And I promise as soon as I'm finished, we can take our leave."
Naryu winks at you before pulling her blades from their sheathes and inspecting them, much like she inspected your outfit earlier.
After a moment, satisfied, she spins the daggers in her palms before concealing them away on her person once more.
[If Score is less than 0]
"Fine. I didn't think you'd be such a bore about this, hero."
"If you just want to get in and get out, then that's what we'll do. And there will be no fun had whatsoever, I assure you. No fun for you, anyways. I'll find my own elsewhere."
Naryu frowns, her brow knitted with frustration.
She inspects something on the edge of her blade before roughly shoving it back into the scabbard at her thigh.

"You know, I asked you here because you've never let me down. I don't have many people I can count on, so I keep the ones I'm reasonably certain about close."

"But if I'm being completely honest, I asked you here for another reason, too. Some deluded fantasy about the two of us dancing in each other's arms, drunk on wine, retiring to some secluded hallway where I press you up against the wall and our hands are all over each other and…"

"If that's as stupid as it sounds, I need you to tell me right now, hero."

"It's not stupid, Naryu. I want that too." (+1)
"You've made me blush, are you happy with yourself? You and that lovely nose of yours, and mouth, and everything…"
[If Score is at least 2, go to Romance Ending]
[If Score is less than 2, go to Friends Ending]
"It's incredibly stupid!" (-1)
"I suppose that makes me quite the fool then, doesn't it? I think I'll stick to poking people with the pointy end of my daggers and leave the rubbish romance stuff to someone else."
[If Score is at least 1, go to Friends Ending]
[If Score is less than 1, go to Enemies Ending]

Romance[edit]

[Hearts float across the screen]

A shiver runs through you.

"Let's get this done quickly, hero. Then we can start in on that delicious fantasy of mine. I can hardly wait."

"In fact … I think a taste of what's to come may be appropriate. It'll give me something to think about while I'm working."

Naryu suddenly presses you back against the wall of the Randy Netch Inn you're standing in front of and brings her body close to yours. Her expression is unreadable. She's either going to kiss you or kill you, and you can't quite tell the difference. You grab her hips. She's surprisingly soft.

Her mouth hovers inches from yours and she chuckles low, sending shivers across your body. You lose yourself in the moment, savoring every second…

End

The Mother of Blades has a special place in her heart just for you.

Naryu rolls her eyes.

"Let's just forget about all that. I have a job to do, and you have people to mingle with and partygoers to impress."

"Try to be your charming self, hmm? And don't get into any trouble or try any heroics while I'm gone. If all goes well, drinks are on me."

Naryu adjusts the neckline of your ensemble fondly and then steps back, apparently satisfied with her work.

She slides an elaborate masquerade mask into your hand with a smirk.

End

Even assassins need friends, and Naryu considers you one of her best!

Enemies[edit]

Naryu's expression tightens.

"All right, I think it's fairly obvious that you’re not interested in helping me. I'm not sure what your problem is, but I don't have the patience for it, or the time."

"I think it's probably best you leave. I can do this on my own."

Naryu gives you a withering look before turning away sharply.

She makes a lewd gesture over her shoulder as she leaves. You do not hear from Naryu again.

End

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer, right? You might want to watch your back.

Darien[edit]

Shimmerene background
Darien, neutral
Darien, angry
Darien, happy

While exploring outside Shimmerene with Darien, a summer squall hits the island. You take refuge in an old, damp ruin with the golden knight to wait out the storm.

Darien makes a fire and peels off his soaked shirt, laying it against a nearby rock. He rifles through the pack he brought for the journey, procuring a loaf of bread, some cheese, and an unanticipated bottle of wine. He pops the cork with his teeth and grins.

"So this is fun. A little unexpected, but most good things in life are."

"We have wine, food, a relatively dry place to stay and one another's fine company. What could be better? I'm almost glad this storm hit. I've been meaning to ask you to grab a drink anyway."

"And I must say, you look quite good soaking wet."

"You look good shirtless, as always." (+1)
"Why, thank you! You should join me. It's really quite freeing."
"Cut it out, Darien." (-1)
"Sorry. Just thought I'd try to relieve some tension."

"Really, though, this isn't so bad. Things could be worse. Neither of us are wounded, no great evil is breathing down our necks for once, and we have nothing to do and nowhere to be until this storm clears."

"If only there was a bit more entertainment. A bard to play us a lovely song and set the mood, maybe."

"I suppose we'll have to entertain ourselves for the time being. Any ideas?"

"You could make good on all that flirting." (+1)
"And here I was going to suggest that I sit here and flex for you until you were quivering with desire. Your idea is much better!"
"Of course, if you'd like to circle back to that later, feel free to let me know."
Darien slides closer to you. There's laughter in his eyes as they roam over your face and figure with delight, but the more he stares at you, the more serious his expression becomes.
He reaches up, brushing the calloused pad of his thumb against your cheek. He's so close now you can see droplets of rain beaded across his bare chest like jewels.
"You could leave me alone." (-1)
[If Score is at least 0]
"But then I wouldn't get to see my favorite expression of yours. The one where your brow gets all furrowed and you look like you want to kill me? Yes, right there, that's the one!"
"I'm kidding, I'm kidding! Let's just drink some of this wine and eat our fill, and we'll be out of here before you know it. I promise."
Darien extends the bottle of wine to you as a peace offering. He waggles his eyebrows good-naturedly.
As the two of you drink, rain falls steadily around the ruin. The smell of wet earth fills your nostrils.
[If Score is less than 0]
"Believe it or not, it's not my intention to annoy you. But it seems like I've done just that."
"I didn't mean to upset you. I was just trying to lighten the mood a bit but… I'll just be quiet, I guess."
Darien takes a long drink from the wine bottle and looks away from you.
A long sigh deflates him. He tosses the loaf of bread in his hand, like he's considering eating it, and then thinks better of it.

"We've gone through a lot together, haven't we?"

"I find myself dreaming about you often. Most of the time they're nice dreams. You in tight leathers, me in a steaming bath... But sometimes they're not so nice. Sometimes, I lose you. And that scares me more than I care to admit."

"Tell me, do you feel the same? Or am I crazy?"

"I'd have to be an idiot to have feelings for someone like you." (-1)
"Hmm. I should have seen that coming. I'm usually better at this."
[If Score is at least -1, go to Friends Ending]
[If Score is less than -1, go to Enemies Ending]
"I feel the same way. I don't ever want to lose you, Darien." (+1)
"Huh. I know I should say something heartfelt and perhaps even poetic right now, but all I can think about is your mouth and how nice it is."
[If Score is at least 1, go to Romance Ending]
[If Score is less than 1, go to Friends Ending]

Romance[edit]

[Loafs of bread float across the screen]

Darien traces your face with his eyes.

"Maybe we should just stay here, even after the storm passes. Tell everyone that we got hopelessly lost and just spend a few days lying out here in the grass, caressing each other to our hearts' content."

"Of course, there'd be no one to save the world if we went missing. So, I suppose we'll just have to take advantage of the time we have."

Darien moves closer, his hand trailing at your waist before pulling you flush against him with impressive strength. You feel the hard, muscled plane of his body pressed against your soaked clothes as his warmth surrounds you.

He flips damp hair out of his eyes and then presses his forehead against yours. His laughter is lost in the pounding rain as the storm crashes down around you.

End

He loafs you! You and Darien have a special bond.

Tweet: He may be Meridia's chosen, but Darien chose me in #SmolderScrolls! See if you're lucky in love here https://www.elderscrollsonline.com/en-us/smolderscrolls

Friends[edit]

Darien rolls his shoulders a bit.

"Well, we've got a full bottle of wine and at least a few hours until the worst of the storm passes. I say we get drunk, lie back, and watch the lightning."

"You're a good friend, you know. There's no one else I'd rather be stuck out here with. Well, that's not true. If the opportunity to be stuck out here with a dozen beautiful women came up, I'd probably pick that one. But then you. Definitely you."

Darien grins at you and nudges your shoulder a bit.

Then the two of you lean back to watch the storm roll through.

End

Good friends are the ones you know you can crust. You and Darien remain chums.

Tweet: Darien and I are better off as friends in #SmolderScrolls. See if you're luckier in love here https://www.elderscrollsonline.com/en-us/smolderscrolls

Darien huffs a little.

"You know what? I was going to share my bread with you. It's delicious, like me. But if you'd rather eat boring air, so be it."

"Oh. And I'm drinking the rest of this wine."

Darien scowls and starts valiantly chugging the remainder of the bottle. He glares at you with one eye while he does so.

The storm rages outside the ruin all the while. The two of you don’t speak for the rest of the night.

End

Your relationship with Darien might be toast...

Eveli[edit]

Fort background

Eveli, in love

You and Eveli tracked a group of murderous bandits to an old fort. Unfortunately, it's quickly becoming apparent that the two of you are severely outnumbered.

Eveli looses one arrow after another into the fray as you pull her back by the hood, around a corner, and into a small alcove.

"Take that, you creepy bunch of cracked acorns! This Wood Elf will make you cry for-- oh!"

"Hey! What's the big idea? I wasn't done putting arrows through those jerks!"

"Why'd you stop me?"

"As much as I like watching you cut down bandits, I think we're outmatched here." (+1)
"Come on, we could totally take… wait, you like watching me? Heh. You know, if you want lessons from a master archer, all you have to do is ask."
"I'm trying to keep you from getting killed." (-1)
"Oh, come on, I totally had that! There's not a scratch on me! Ugh, fine. I suppose I'll save arrows this way."

Eveli huffs, but settles back against the alcove. Around the corner, the bandits pursuing you rush past, having lost sight of their quarry. Silence settles. You and Eveli are mere inches apart.

"So, I suppose we're stuck here for the moment. This is kind of fun, don't you think? It's just like when Investigator Vale and that good-looking guard got stuck in a closet and… err…."

"It's not important. But it's a good read, I swear! One of my favorites, actually. Though, this probably isn't the time for talking about my favorite stories. Mortal danger, and all that."

Eveli blushes and avoids your eyes for a moment. In the quiet, she whistles tunelessly. When she looks back at you, a nervous grin spreads across her face.

"Close quarters, huh?"

"They could always be closer." (+1)
"Ha! Oh, wait, you're serious? "I [sic]… didn't know you felt that way. I hoped, but I didn't want to ruin it. Not putting all my acorns in one basket and all that."
Eveli shifts on her heels, smiling coyly. She angles her body a little closer to you in the small space and tilts her head.
"In that case, how's this? Closer, just like you wanted, right? Just me and you, you and me, in this tiiiiny little space. It's grand."
"Erm, that Investigator Vale story I was talking about? What I didn't mention earlier was that after a while, she and that very good-looking guard decide that hiding in a closet is awfully boring."
"So Investigator Vale comes up with a brilliant plan! To make it more exciting, right?"
Eveli takes a steadying breath and then exhales sharply, steeling herself. Her eyes close, but she peeks one open to look at you.
"And if you're not serious about this, I'm really going to need you to tell me now before I make an idiot out of myself."
"I'm serious, Eveli. Let me guess, they made it more exciting by kisssing?" (+1)
[Go to Romance Ending]
"Sorry, Eveli. I was just joking. I consider you a friend." (-1)
[Go to Friends Ending]
"Unfortunately. Your breath smells like a dead horker." (-1)
"Well that's not very nice! Huh, must have been the blood-berry pudding I had earlier."
"I'd just like to point out that if you hadn't dragged me in here you wouldn't have to smell my stinky pudding breath. So really, if we're looking at things objectively, this is all your fault."
Eveli folds her arms over her chest and frowns. She pointedly looks away from you before exhaling a dramatic sigh.
"I could have done this on my own, you know. I brought you along because I thought we'd have fun, but silly me! I forgot you were a big, stupid, stick in the mud!"
Eveli's bright eyes dart back to you, almost challenging. She juts her chin out, as if daring you to say something back.
"You're right., [sic] I'm sorry, Eveli. Truce?" (+1)
[Go to Neutral Ending]
"At least I don't run around all day pretending to be a hero." (-1)

Romance[edit]

[Hearts float across the screen]

"You're either a secret Investigator Vale fan, or very good at guessing. Doesn't matter! I'm not arguing."

"You know, I always wondered why Investigator Vale spent so much time doing this kind of thing. I thought chasing down the baddie was the best part."

Eveli presses up close to you and reaches for your jaw. She giggles breathlessly as she leans in, her nose drifting across your cheek.

"Guess I've still got a lot to learn, huh?"

"Now hurry up and kiss me so we can finish putting holes through these horkers!"

Eveli presses against you and kisses you eagerly. Her hands cup your jaw before trailing down to tug at your collar, pulling you closer.

[Hearts float across the screen]

Outside, the bandits give up their search, never knowing that the two of you were inside the fort kissing furiously enough to make even Investigator Vale herself blush.

End

You make Eveli's heart quiver! Is this the next step to an arrow to the knee?

"Fine. But you owe me one … no, two blood-berry puddings when we get back! And I get to finish off the bandit leader! Then we'll see if I can find it in my heart to forgive you."

"Oh! That's all right, no hard feelings, yeah? Let's just go on pretending this never happened and that I didn't just totally embarrass myself just now."

Eveli punches you lightly in the arm and grins.

"Besides, Investigator Vale and the guard just decided to play a round of cards in the closet. Nothing embarrassing about that!"

Now, let's get back to doing what we do best. Two heroes, terrible odds, the power of friendship, a bunch of arrows, and attitude!"

Eveli grins at you and draws another arrow from her quiver. She spins it deftly between her fingers before grabbing hold of it and darting out of the alcove.

"Last one there's a rotten acorn!"

Come on, you. We're not very good heroes if we let all the enemies get away. I accept the terms of your truce, alright?

"Oh ho! That's good! You've really cut me to the core with that one. I'm going to have to cry myself to sleep over it! How will I ever recover?"

Eveli shoves past you as she leaves the alcove, her face twisted with fury.

"I don't know if you woke up on the wrong side of a wamasu this morning or if you're just rotten to your core, but either way, I'm not sticking around to deal with it."

"Don't come crying to me if you get a bandit's arrow in your throat. I only pretend to be a hero, after all."

Eveli glares at you before turning promptly on her heel and stalking off in the other direction.

You arrive in Fennorian's study in Castle Ravenwatch. The vampire scholar hunches over his desk, his hands moving like a symphony over a myriad of flasks and bottles.

Fennorian straightens up when you enter and turns to greet you with a reserved smile. He abandons his work to give you his full attention.

"What a pleasant surprise. I did not think I would see you here for some time."

"Gwendis neglected to inform me of your visit. I would have cleaned up for you, had I known."

"Is everything all right? I don't dare to presume you ventured here just to visit me."

"What if I did? I like your company, Fennorian." (+1)
"Oh? I'm rather fond of yours, as well. I'm happy you're here. I could use a second opinion. You have a brilliant mind; I would be remiss to not take advantage of it while I have you."
"I didn't. Just stopping by." (-1)
"Oh? Well, I'm happy you're here. I could use a second opinion. You have a brilliant mind; I would be remiss to not take advantage of it while I have you."

Fennorian gestures you over as he turns back to his desk. You move and stand shoulder to shoulder with him as he looks down, gazing at his work. His sharp profile glows red from a nearby torch.

"I'm working on a health regenerative tonic with some unique properties, but I can't tell if I have the components balanced."

He looks up, curtains of dark hair framing his serious face. A tentative smile curls his lips as his eyes roam over your brow, cheeks, and chin before finally meeting your gaze.

"Perhaps you'd like to try? It's hard to objectively observe my own reaction, as you might imagine. I tried to make it taste of snowberries, if that helps persuade you."

"I think I'd rather taste you." (+1)
Fennorian's eyes go wide and his mouth parts slightly, revealing the tips of his fangs. After a moment, he clears his throat and tries to collect himself. A nervous laugh bubbles out of him.
"You never fail to surprise me, you know that? I think that's what makes you so fascinating to me. You often do things I don't expect … things that send me reeling."
"Not that I'm complaining, of course. I rather like the way you keep me on my toes. It's intriguing."
Fennorian angles himself closer to you, his hand straying close to yours on the edge of the desk. His pale, near-violet eyes go molten with wanting.
"I don't think you understand the… effect you have on me."
His fingers curl in on themselves on the desk and he looks away from you. His face grows dark, brow crumpling.
"But I don't wish to burden you with this. If you don't feel the same, I will never speak of this again. You have my word."
"I feel the same way, Fennorian. I always have. Kiss me."
[Go to Romance ending]
"I don't feel the same, Fennorian. I'm sorry, I was just trying to be funny."
[Go to Friends ending]
"You're crazy if you think I'm going to drink anything you came up with. I don't have a death wish!"
"I suppose that's fair. I'm sorry if I upset you."
"I would never willingly cause you any harm. I hope you know that. We've known each other long enough that I should think that would be obvious."
Fennorian moves the mixture in question from the middle of the desk.
"If I had even the briefest doubt regarding the safety of this mixture, I would not have offered it."
His eyes move over your face, his brow furrowing.
"I know you would never hurt me, Fennorian. I'm sorry I reacted so strongly."
[Go to Neutral ending]
"I don't think you're smart enough to know one way or the other."

Romance[edit]

[Hearts float across the screen]

Fennorian needs no further instruction. He rushes towards you, his hands cupping your jaw, and kisses you with all the tenderness in the world. He lingers there for a moment, steadying himself.

"For a long while, I thought locking away my emotions would keep me safe. And it did, for a time, I suppose. But it also made me incredibly lonely."

His hand brushes against yours and his thumb begins to make small circles across your knuckles. He clears his throat and gives you a sharp smile.

"Then, I met you. Unexpected, exhilarating, radiant … all of my defenses fell away in an instant. I've thought of this moment for so long, and now that it's finally here, I feel foolish for waiting."

With his free hand, Fennorian grabs you by the hip and pulls you closer. Your hands splay across the firmness of his chest, where you feel a rumble of laughter.

"Now, perhaps we can make up for lost time."

[Hearts float across the screen]

Fennorian kisses you again, deeper and longer this time. Castle Ravenwatch is quiet around you as the two of you do exactly as he suggested.

It's love at first bite! You and Fennorian are sweethearts!

Friends[edit]

Fennorian nods and moves his hand away. He smiles softly, almost timidly, and gives you an apologetic bow.

"Apologies. As promised, you will never hear me speak of it again. I am perfectly happy counting you as one of my very close friends and would ask nothing more from you."

He turns back to his desk and drums his fingers across the edge. After a moment, he gives you a sidelong glance.

"If I haven't sufficiently embarrassed myself beyond redemption, I could still use your help."

"And of course, I won't make you sample anything you don't want to. That is a special honor I reserve only for Gwendis."

He laughs gently and makes space on the table for a few more flasks. Then, he begins a long, but rather scintillating summary of his findings with childlike enthusiasm, happy to have someone listen.

End

Fang-tastic! Your friendship with Fennorian is something you can really sink your teeth into!

Neutral[edit]

"It's quite all right. You're entitled to your reaction. Besides, since becoming a vampire, I've gotten rather accustomed to people being suspicious of my intentions."

He shrugs his lean shoulders and then resumes his work.

"I appreciate your apology, of course. It's nice to know not everyone thinks of me in such ill light. And I apologize, too, for making you uncomfortable. That was never my intention."

"Now, if you're still interested in helping, I could certainly use the company."

Fennorian rolls an empty tube beneath his fingers and offers it to you with a smile. The two of you work side by side, chatting amiably as the night goes on.

End

Your relationship with Fennorian isn't exactly something you can sink your teeth into, but at least it doesn't suck!

Enemies[edit]

Fennorian's jaw clenches and his eyes harden on your face. He says nothing for a long moment, and then turns his back to his desk.

"You're entitled to your opinion, of course. However mean-spirited it may be."

"If you came here merely to insult me, I'm afraid I'm not in the mood. Perhaps find Adusa-daro. She'd make a better sparring partner."

"I have a great deal of work to do. If you don't mind."

Fennorian begins working with his flasks and vials once again and doesn't spare you a second glance.

End

It's probably not wise to make an enemy out of a vampire. Better luck necks time!
