Description
A long forgotten evil is on the verge of its return. Venture into the voids of Darlera to stop a madman who threatens to plunge the lands into the depths of chaos. Will you spare the world from wrath or watch it burn in ruin?

Introduction:

An ominous trio known only as the Ascended has journeyed to the lands of Skyrim. Unsure of their reasons the Dovahkiin must piece together clues of their intent to ultimately unearth a malice plot which if achieved will ignite all of Tamriel into flame.

Included in this mod are:

Two Short Self-Guided Missions (these missions are not quest scripted. There are no markers, quest starters, or quest updates. Only through journal entries and books will you be able to complete this mod.)

Challenging Boss Battles

Powerful Summons and Spells

A Unique Companion

The only requirement for this mod is Skyrim (latest version recommended). All actors included within this mod use default hair and are not standalone. No outside mods (skin, hair, clothes, and etc.) all included within this mod. Depending on the mods you have installed the look of the actors included within this mod will vary.

You cannot autosave inside the Sphere of Darlera. It's important you save before each battle.


How to Start:

Your journey begins in Labyrinthian (you will need to travel to this location). A figure will be awaiting your arrival near the main entrance (the area where you encounter the frost troll near the stairwell). After dealing with this individual one way or the other make sure to search their body for clues to your next location (the Abandoned Prison).


Install/Uninstall:

Install by clicking the subscribe button and uninstall by clicking the unsubscribe button. Make sure in the Skyrim Loader that you are subscribed to me as a user otherwise the mod may not work.


Issues:

When casting a specific spell within this mod you may encounter a glitch where the attached sound will continuously play even when the spell is no longer active. To resolve this issue simply change the spell in your hands to a different type and the problem should subside.


Due to the amount of effects on the follower sometimes dialogue options will not be able to be selected after the follower engages in longwinded combat, this problem can be fixed by creating a save and reloading or merely entering a new cell (cave, house, tavern, etc).

One of the spells has a visual effect that is very glitchy. Sometimes the visual effect will occur and other times it will not. To address this issue you may need to cast the spell a couple of times for the animation to take effect.

The follower uses a script, which removes their base location. So when dismissing the follower they will not return to where you first encountered them. You should dismiss the follower in an area you will remember (house, guild hall, tavern, etc) as they will not move from the location you dismiss them until you instruct them to follow once again.

Due to the amount of visual effects included within this mod it is possible that you will experience slow frame rate or a crash to desktop depending on the processing speed of your computer. That being said if you are running a low-end computer then use your best judgment when attempting to download this mod.

If you encounter any additional issues please send me a message in the comment section and once confirmed I will update this section accordingly.


Compatibility:

This mod and its contents are not compatible with mods that dramatically change the meshes for the Black Wolf, Frostbite Spider, Default Dragon, Blood Dragon, and the Skeleton enemy model.

If you encounter any additional incompatibilities please send me a message in the comment section and once confirmed I will update this section accordingly.

Questions:

Question: What level is recommended for this mod?

Answer: Due to its difficulty it is recommended that you are at least level 30 before beginning.

Question: Why did I just kill one of the dragons and it did not drop a soul?

Answer: This is purposely implemented as these dragons belong to a faction, on which dragons do not drop souls on death. This will not affect dragons that are not part of this mod.

Question: Does this mod affect the leveled list?

Answer: Each enemy is hand placed within the world. So no issues should arise regarding this mod having an effect on leveled list.

Question: Will you be adding these enemies to a leveled list?

Answer: As of right now I do not plan on releasing or allowing these enemies to be implemented into a leveled list. I would like for them to stay unique. Perhaps I will release some other designs for this very reason but as of right now, I have no plans of doing this anytime soon.

Question: Will you decrease the difficulty of this mod?

Answer: I will take this is into consideration as some of the boss battles are quite unfair. If enough people voice a concern I will perhaps release a less difficult version.

Question: Why do I keep crashing to the desktop when attempting to start this mod?

Answer: If this is a continuous problem please send me a list of the mods you currently have installed and I will try to diagnose what is possibly conflicting.

Question: What does the future hold for this mod?

Answer: I plan on fixing any issues that may arise through updates, and perhaps implementing a few more dragons and enemies into the fray.

Question: Is this mod compatible with mods such as Deadly Dragons, Enhanced Mighty Dragons, and Dragon Combat Overhaul?

Answer: Yes, however load this mod last to avoid possible issues. When loaded with Dragon Combat Overhaul the mod will overwrite some of the tail attacks for dragons included within this mod.


Updates:

V1.0: Inferno: Advents of Flame Released

05-24-2013: Harvest Rage Fire Added

Harvest Rage Fire: The player can collect the fireballs the dragon Vokulvokun drops from his attacks, store them in their misc inventory, and drop them to create massive explosions in the surrounding area. Best to use around enemies. Simply select "Take Rage Fire" when the attack is being launched. Use with caution on low-end computers, dropping too many at one time can potentially freeze your game. However, a simple restart will fix the issue.

Inferno: Advents of Flame is now available on the Steam Workshop.

@tweetypilant you should use the nexus version for whatever reason it appears to be more stable on nexus than steam. Running this through steam is a nightmare :/ http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/36363

I was really looking forward to this, but the guy didn't show up at the very start of the quest. I looked everywhere.

This Mod is awesome. The difficulty reminds me of demon's souls. Without preparation you will fail - and fail again. But with good prepration I had my best fights of this game :) Thx Mr. Frost Dragon

Hey Velocity,

For the most part you might just want to use the nexus version of the mod. More stable. For some reason steam and this mod don't mix. Not sure why, but this is a common problem with steam that and the scripts constantly breaking. http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/36363
I'm having a huge problem with this mod. It was recommended by a friend and I'm really excited, but all the images in the journals and books are "img:" with coloured lines behind them and Wolfmeat is seethrough, blue, and I can't interact with him. I don't want to spend half the game looking at the tutorial or trying to fix these mods. I've added in all the right files and folders, but I can't find the problem. I see this is a common bug/glitch. Any solution yet?

For those having problems with this version on steam you should use the nexus version instead. The steam version has a lot of problems due to steam not being able to incoporate the scripts. Here is the link http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/36363
