This underwater hideout provides your infamous character with safe haven. Those willingly inflicted (or shall we say graced?) with vampirism will find a means to feed, and if necessary, a means to cure their infliction. Hire evil minions, pray to the dark god Sithis, and a host of other functions await.       

AvailableJuly 13th, 2006 - $1.89

A multilevel lair for murderous players to find refuge

The Font of Renewal, where a player may purge himself of Vampirism

The Shrine of Sithis where the infamous player may heal and be cured of disease

A Dark Minion, who the player may employ to find gold in a most unseemly manner

A 'cattle pen' for vampires to dine

An indoor garden of venomous plants, including the notorious Chokeberry to feed to your enemy

Various furnishing upgrades, including a study room and storage area

It's worth the price of admission just to get the vampire cure.  The quest you can do to cure vampirism is rather long and I've been kind of stuck on it for a while now.

I haven't seen any info on how many points it will be, but hopefully in line with that same price.

I have to say my Dark Brotherhood horse looked dorky until I bought the horse armor.  Now he scares me.

Not worth the $$, though, that's true.

The orrery looks cool but is completely useless.  I like the $2K I get weekly from the Dunbar Pirates, though (and I love that one of them is named Yinz'r - some designer is from Pittsburgh, for sure).  I've heard Wizard's Tower is a good one, but I don't have the patience for the other one they put out (sounds like its too long).  Basically, I'm slogging through the Main story quests as part of the last gaming I'm going to do for Oblivion.  I may come back to these downloadables, but who knows.

Edit: Removed a "for sure," for sure.

That's like blaming owls because I suck at making analogies.

Might as well include Ubisoft in there for their overpriced GRAW DLC pack.  It wouldn't even bother me quite that much if it didn't split the player community since from what I've seen so far, those with the pack can't set up a hosted game that allows people without the pack to join their game.

Which means there's essentially two sku's now: the $60 standard one, and the $75 "live-enhanced" one.

I agree that the price is right for these add-ons.

However, most of them are basically house mods--and they seem rather over-powered.

It would be nice if Bethesda started offering some meaty quests and storylines, even if they cost a couple of more bucks.
