Skyrim Soles: The Amazon's Adventures Continue! (Elder Scrolls V Skyrim PC)

A deadly skirmish with one woman left standing...

Believe it or not... I am STILL playing The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim. Really, this game is all manners of awesome, from how the continuous influx and creation of mods keep it fresh and exciting and new, how the graphics look freakin' amazing (with the right mods installed) and well, how the in-game female bare feet (with FemFeet Redesigned installed) are easily the best-looking in-game footsies I have had the pleasure to play with.
Just this night's play session, I was wandering the roads with my heroine, the Barefoot Dovahkiin known as The Amazon. She was minding her own business when she was attacked by a Fire Drahman Norokdir- a mod-provided monster that was half-dragon and half-man... and all horrific. Even though the Amazon was at level 69, armed with legendary armor, weapons and skills, she was outmatched. The creature took away chunks of life with every hit, and had tons of health to shrug off blows that would fell any other creature. Though it irked her, the female fury was forced to give ground in the hopes of whittling down the Norokdir and somehow survive.

Luckily though, help soon arrived, in the form of a Stormcloak patrol. Since she was unaligned, these rebel soldiers were friendly and rushed in to battle the beast. Well, unfortunately for the Stormcloaks, they were no match for the Norokdir as well, and soon all were dead on the ground. However, the Amazon was able to deal the finishing blows thanks to their interference, and as the battle ended, she stood alive, the lone survivor.

Once again I have to say- Skyrim's modded feet are the best bare feet in gaming.

One of the fallen Stormcloaks was a female- their captain, in fact, and she was, like the Amazon herself, barefooted in fur greaves. I found myself staring at her soles and I have to say I was amazed. I've seen the game's FemFeet-augmented feet countless times, of course- but still, seeing how detailed the feet are still makes me so glad for having this game. The feet are damn beautiful, and so realistic. Even more so, I noticed now (as you can see in the pic above) that the feet are rimed with frost, since the female Stormcloak had been walking barefooted in the snowy ground. Otherwise though, her feet were unblemished and unharmed, as they were warrior feet and proof against even tough ice or snow (perfect, indestructible, beautiful feet- a foot fan's dream!). Man, I have to say again- the modders who created FemFeet (and FemFeet ReDesigned) have my eternal thanks.

Anyway, I'll be posting more vids in my Path of The Amazon series on the Youtube channel, and it will hopefully carry on into the conclusion of the main quest and then progress into Dawnguard. From there I'll continue playing with the character into more quests (perhaps Dragonborn and Falskaar). I don't think I'll be quitting this game anytime soon. Man, is that replay value or what? Heheh.


  1. Wow talk about an epic battle...the Amazon definitely proved herself to be a badass.

    Nice way to honor the fallen female Stormcloak member too. :-)

  2. Nice stuff ! I have a fire mage character myself, and couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon some really nice clothing outfits to combine (she's a pure mage, that means, no armor, just robes and clothing) that allows her to walk around in sublime barefootness, without losing any of the footwear benefits. You might have already seen these mods, but they're really nice even to just look at :)
