Summon Vampire Marek

Requirements: OBSE v0021 | Blockhead (optional)
Download Download | Mirror



Marek is a summonable vampire companion based on Kiki's Summon Vampire v2.01b. His summon spell can be obtained by reading the creepy grimoire found in the basement of Seridur's House, in the Imperial City's Temple District. When you first try to read the book a mini event will start and you will be asked to spill a few drops of your blood on it; don't burn the book as you won't have a second chance to get the spell. The grimoire is Marek's in-game manual so don't forget to pick it up.

Marek can fight using 6 different styles or classes: warrior, hunter, mage, thief, healer and martial artist. All fighting styles have their own separate inventory and separate equipment and you can customize armor and weapons of each single class indipendently. Each fighting style also has its own special abilities and you can bind a key on your keyboard to manually activate them; please refer to Marek's in-game manual or talk to him to learn how to properly set and use the action button; the action button can also be used to toggle between the stay and follow commands. You can check his status via dialogue anytime.

FEATURES
Marek has many useful skills. More specifically he can:

  • automatically repair his broken equipment if you place a repair hammer in the same inventory where the broken piece of equipment is;
  • automatically recharge an enchanted item if you place a Welkynd Stone in the same inventory where the item to be recharged is;
  • share food, drinks and repair hammers with you as long as he has enough items in stock (his supplies will be replenished gradually);
  • turn precious stones and ores that you trade with him into soul gems;
  • see in the dark (night vision);
  • carry a torch in the dark for you;
  • carry a black crystal during the day to protect himself from the sunlight;
  • create a magic sack that will reduce your encumbrance with the nirnroots that you trade with him;
  • shift his moral alignment from good to evil and viceversa (the change will affect his strength in battle but people might become hostile);
  • disperse the red mist that surrounds him;
  • transform you into a vampire and feed you with blood.



PLAY AS MAREK
Marek's custom race is flagged as playable so you can roleplay him if you like. Please note that if you want him to look like in the pictures you'll have to reset his face in the race menu. And also keep in mind that, Blockhead installed or not, you'll have to manually add his armor, weapons, alternate outfit and demon's body parts to your inventory via console.

Here's a list of Marek's belongings with the corresponding console codes. Replace XX with the proper modindex. A modindex is a two-digit number which reflects the position of a mod's esp/esm in your load order. OBMM can help you identify the correct modindex.

 KNOWN BUGS AND ISSUES
  • Marek is fully voiced, however his voice was generated with an online text to speech program so it doesn't sound natural. If anybody would like to offer their service for free and do the voice over, please email me and add some sample of your voice where you read any of his dialogue lines;
  • if one places a carrot in the martial artist's inventory Marek is supposed to fight barehands. Unfortunately the script seems to act up, irremediably causing a crash to desktop. Since I'm not competent with scripting, help to fix this would be appreciated;
  • likewise, if you place an apple in his martial artist's inventory he's supposed to hold the black crystal in his hand for screenshooting purpose. I've never tried this myself but I bet a crash will occur instead;
  • repeatedly switching between stay and follow via dialogue will cause a crash to desktop. This is not crucial since it can be easily avoided, but if anybody can find a fix I would be very grateful.
This mod has not been tested thoroughly so please feel free to report any bug that you might encounter.
