The Story of Vicky Randema
Born into a family of master archers known as the Randemas, Vicky was a crackshot by the age of 6. Her parents would travel from city to city, training the Jarl's guards. But as time went on, Vicky grew tired of practice and tired of her parents profession. So instead she took up the art of being a thief. Now 16 years of age and stealing trinkets from the local citizens, she was ever so amused. But even after some time, she grew tired of this as well. During an extended stay in the city of Markarth, perched atop the Guard Tower, she noticed a sewer grate broke open. Skipping her archery practice again, she ventured through the sewer and stumbled upon the great Calcelmo's research. Glaring at all the trinkets and oddities in his possession, she attempted to take a peculiar looking device that appeared such as a metal eye patch. But in her bedazzled state, she had not noticed Calcelmo's nephew, Aicantar. "Stop right there, thief !" said Aicantar. Startled by the ruckus, Calcelmo came to investigate. Angry, yet curious, Calcelmo made a deal with Vicky - keep the device which she had stolen, but help in his research. Knowing that her parents would rightfully not stand by her being a thief, she agreed to the new task. So for weeks she would clean the museum, fetch rolls of paper, purchase food from the market, and complete other boringly petty tasks. "I must be of greater use than this. I want to explore the ruins. Find treasures", she said to Calcemo. "Non-sense, child. There are dangers of which you are unaware. *Sigh* I suppose you've been of good use for my research. Here, take this dwarven amulet and be on your way. And not a word of what you've seen." So here Vicky was... without amusement. No one to bother, and growing ever so tired of her stay in Markarth.
Many months had passed. One evening, while atop the Gaurd Tower once more, she was met by a stranger. "Who... who are you ? What are you doing up here?" she asked, in a frightened state. "I am but a shadow, now go from this place", he whispered. "I'm not going anywhere, now tell me who you are or I'll report you to the guards !" she shouted back. "Quiet, silly girl. You'll get us both caught." Removing his hood and revealing his identity, the stranger sat next to Vicky. "I've heard of great wonders hidden beneath this city. I came here in search of treasure", he explained. "Lanoor ? Is...is that you? *laughing quietly* You are a thief ?" Vicky asked, having recognised a friend from her stay in Riverwood. "Vicky ? What, in the name of Nocturnal, are you doing up here ? Out here! In Markarth ?" asked Lanoor. "My parents are on a never ending stay here", replied Vicky, "training the Jarl's guards. I... you know we never-" Gently placing his hand over her lips "Shhh, I'm sorry I had to leave you behind. But my Grandfather needed me back in Falkreath. I never stopped loving you." said Lanoor. They kissed and for a moment, Vicky felt alive again. "I must go now, Vicky. I am truly sorry", said Lanoor. Opening her eyes, she watched as he leaped from rooftop to rooftop... dissappearing into the night. But something was wrong. Something was missing. Her dwarven amulet had been stolen by Lanoor ! She was furious, yet couldn't help but fall into tears.
Many more months passed, and she dreamt of retrieving her stolen amulet. Finally, it was time for her family's departure from Markath. Their destination was Riften. On the road, she remembered the peculiar eye patch from Calcelmo. Putting it on, she realized this was no oddity... but a device which allowed her to see things even more clearly and up close. This was an astounding discovery. Now 22 years of age, a master of archery and with the use of this 'scouter', she knew she could be quite possibly the best archer in the southern regions of Skyrim. But things took a turn for the worse. Just before arriving in Riften, their carraige was ambushed by a pack of thieves. Only two of them fell, but the rest escaped. Her parents, slain because of their resistance, lay dead on the road. Engulfed in rage and sorrow, Vicky patched together the thieves armor with pieces of golden imperial attire from her parents earnings chest. She noticed the matching emblem on the thieves pauldron, like the one Lanoor was wearing that night in Markarth. Sensing he could be close, she put on the scouter as a final piece and barged through Riften. "Where is Lanoor !" she shouted in the marketplace. "Where is that thief ?". Holding back tears, she scanned the area for the double-crosser she both loved and hated. Leaping down from a rooftop, Lanoor came forth. "Vicky ? What are you doing here ?" he asked. "I want my amulet you stole from me, coward !", she shouted back. Lanoor looked to the ground in shame. "I was to retrieve something of value from the city of Markarth. It was part of my initiation into the Thieves Guild. I am sorry, this was wrong of me. I kept it, to remember you by. Here, take it. Please forgive me." Snatching the amulet from his hand, "I... I loved you, once. But you-," interrupted by the guards, Vicky ran from Lanoor and out of Riften. "Stop ! You did not pay the outsider's tax", the guards yelled. But they were too slow to catch Vicky.
Now with her amulet, scouter and custom armor... Vicky set forth to various regions. Picking up contract work, bounties and the like. She is a high paid sharpshooter who never misses a target. Lonely is the road for this life. Will she find love again ? Perhaps she will discover a grand treasure hidden deep beneath the soil and stone of Skyrim...
VICKY'S ARMOR SET - UNP Mashup
This standalone, craftable and upgradable 9-piece light armor set includes:
Bra (2 to choose from)
Body Straps (2 to choose from)
Gauntlet (2 to choose from)
Pauldrons (2 to choose from)
...and Shorts ;]
You'll find it under the Dwarven category at the forge. Does not require any Smithing perks.
- Skyrim's original imperial boots and gauntlet meshes were used to make a portion of this set. However, the textures and stats have been tweaked to fit the whole get-up.
- I'm all about mixing/matching and very much dislike how Skyrim's armors are clumped into a single "cuirass". So, like the Dandelion and Scamp's Iron Armor sets, you can equip any combination of the 9 pieces. Try mixing parts of this armor with the Dandelion and Scamp sets. All kinds of options !
v1 - Initial Release
v1a - Added Alt Pauldron and fixed issue with Amulet compatibility for custom races
v1b - Added Alt Gauntlets
v1c - Final update - changed skirt slot ID
