The Elder Scrolls: Morrowind JVK Mod
When a video game becomes an obsession, the lines between reality and the game are easily blurred. That’s one of the underlying messages to the JVK Mod CreepyPasta for The Elder Scrolls: Morrowind. The original storyteller tells of a mod for Morrowind that completely changes the game, killing off all main quest NPCs and introducing a dark figure known as the Assassin that deals constant damage to the playable character. The obsession comes at the hands of the poster’s friend who is determined to crack the mod’s celestial code to open a mysterious door in the ominous “Portrait Room,” following the eerie advice of several NPC’s to “watch the sky.” Eventually, after countless hours of of unsuccessfully trying to get through the Portrait Door, the friend looses grip on reality and severs contact with the story teller. The last thing he describes is the spindly Assassin visiting him in his dreams and spewing off real life facts about him. It’s not the first time a story has portrayed this sort of break in sanity, but the level of detail that went into making this sound like a true tale is commendable.
