M'aiq the Liar
, M'aiq has emigrated from The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Vvardenfell to Cyrodiil. This time wearing a tattered robe and a tattered hood (both only obtainable through a glitch), M'aiq conveys information and comparisons about the differences between and The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Oblivion, as well as other topics that appeared on the game's forums. His information is no longer false, but may contain in-game jokes.
In a change from being stationary in Morrowind, he is almost constantly moving from one place to another. Beginning in the
Nibenay Basin, he moves between Leyawiin and Anvil and every so often, searching for calipers for five hours.
He will also go out of the map towards the Strid River, but he cannot be followed. Sometimes he will chase random
deer in the wild for no apparent reason. He is the fastest person in and can outrun all purchasable The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion horses except the Black Horses of Cheydinhal.
"M'aiq knows much, tells some. M'aiq knows many things others do not."
"M'aiq longs for a Colovian Fur Helm. Practical, yet stylish. M'aiq is very sad he does not have one."
"M'aiq believes the children are our future. But he doesn't want them ruining all of our fun."
"M'aiq thinks his people are beautiful. The Argonian people are beautiful as well. They look better than ever before."
"Some people wish to throw their weapons. That seems foolish to M'aiq. If you hold your weapon, you only need one."
"Feet are for walking. Hands are for hitting. Or shaking. Or waving. Sometimes for clapping."
"M'aiq prefers to adventure alone. Others just get in the way. And they talk, talk, talk."
"People always enjoy a good fable. M'aiq has yet to find one, though. Perhaps one day."
"Some people want special bows that take too long to load and need special arrows called bolts. M'aiq thinks they are idiots."
"So much easier to get around these days. Not like the old days. Too much walking. Of course, nothing stops M'aiq from walking when he wants."
"M'aiq is glad he has a compass. Makes it easy to find things. Much better than wandering around like a fool."
"Why would one want to swing a staff? A mace hurts more. Or a sword. Can't shoot a fireball from a sword, though."
"I do not wish to fight on horseback. It is a good way to ruin a perfectly good horse... which is, to say, a perfectly good dinner."
"Levitation is for fools. Why would we want to levitate? Once you are up high, there is nowhere to go but down."
"It is good the people wear clothing. M'aiq wears clothing. Who would want to see M'aiq naked? Sick, sick people. Very sad."
"I don't know why one would want to destroy a building. It takes time to make it. Much time."
"I have seen dragons. Perhaps you will see a dragon. I won't say where I saw one. Perhaps I did not."
"Werewolves? Where? Wolves? Men that are wolves? Many wolves. Everywhere. Many men. That is enough for M'aiq."
Should one spawn a pair of calipers on the ground when M'aiq is nearby, he will run into them. This is a good way of getting his attention when approaching him is not possible.
