Another thing that needs to be implemented: doomstones & runestones
. The nature of these stones wasn't really fleshed out during Oblivion
, so we should develop their purpose somewhere in the future. For the moment, this claim would be very simple, as the three stones in the Gold Coast (the Lord Stone, the Lady Stone, and the Jode Stone) are all of the same type: "Doomstones".
The claim would consist of upright stones, using the same texture as the surrounding rocks in the landscape, with an red, glowing rune
alpha texture covering it. In Oblivion
, all these stones had the same runes on them, though it might be nice to a different design for Heaven Stones
and Birthsign Stones
. Doomstones were supposedly made in the Merethic Era, before or during the rule of the Ayleid. As such, their design is unrelated to any other cultures we currently depict. Surrounding them are stone circles: modest clumps of rocks in the original, though we could expand these to be actual stone circles of the Stonehenge type, since we have the place for it (perhaps with a couple of Colovian barrows in the neighborhood).
There's also another type, the Runestones, which are solitary stones with a green rune pattern. These aren't immediately important, as we have no such stones in the current region. These stones are of a later date, which means we could associate their design with tilesets like the Colovian tombs or the Reman forts.
More inspiration on these stones can be found here
, though it should be noted that this source is deliberately incorrect on some points.
