• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

I will grab Fate by the throat, it shall never drag me down.
—Ludwig Van Beethoven

Nehrim: At Fate’s Edge is a total conversion mod for Oblivion. The colossal four-year project by SureAI (Also creators of two more Total Conversions, Arktwend and Myar Aranath, which are prequels) was a remarkable undertaking. The standard Oblivion mechanics were revamped playing more like a combination of Morrowind and Gothic than its base game (Stat Grinding is possible, but skills are mainly raised through experience points that are spent at trainers ala Gothic. There is no level scaling or respawning dungeons.) and an entirely new world was created, complete with lore and quest lines. The mod features a hand-crafted "continent-sized" map and a core storyline that could last over forty hours. The voice-acting is in German, but there are English subtitles and all the quest text has been translated into English. Additionally, the mod boasts impressive hand-designed dungeons and loot in place of Oblivion's randomly generated dungeons [1] and spread sheet generated loot.

The Mod takes place on the war-torn continent of Nehrim, where the Chancellor of Middlerealm, Barateon, has outlawed all magic as well as declared war on the Northrealm. The Player is a member of a small monastery, who, one night, receives a mysterious letter on his doorstep. The letter leads him/her to an abandoned mine, which is unfortunately infested with trolls. He is eventually rescued by the mage, Merzul, who drafts in the PC into the local resistance. And thus begins your grand quest, though not all is as it seems...

As of this writing, it has since won the Best Singleplayer Mod award for 2010. In addition, an additional patch is underway, which shall continue the main story.

Nehrim provides examples of:
