"Find him... and close shut the jaws of Oblivion." -Emperor Uriel Septim VII


Fewer video games have devoured more hours of my life than Oblivion. This game was my world for an absurd amount of time. The entire Elder Scrolls series has been a constant favorite throughout my life, and I wanted to pay homage to it with this Instructable based on an item from a DLC pack called "Wizard's Tower."

Why this drink? Why Wizard's Tower?

The Wizard's Tower was my favorite of all the DLC packs for Oblivion. No matter what kind of character I was playing I would always have them live in the Wizard's Tower for many reasons. I was absolutely in love with the snowy Jerall Mountains region of Cyrodiil and spent as much time around there as possible throughout the game and the tower was equipped with an indoor garden, alchemy lab, enchating and spell-making station, atronach summoning circle, a teleportation pad for every mage's guild in Cyrodiil, not to mention the massive attic and basement for storage, and the tower was perched on the highest mountain in the game: Frostcrag Spire.

In the basement of the Wizard's Tower, there is an easter egg: a Half buried tombstone for someone named Rindsey that was supposedly an aficionado of Tamrielic ales and once brought back a bottle of Daedric Lava Whisky from Dagon's plane of Oblivion. This bottle can be found near Rindsey's grave and when consumed has some counter intuitive effects (fire damage, paralysis, restore health) but also summons a Dremora Lord. I often imagined this drink would be somewhat viscous, spicy, and only served to mortals with ice for fear of some other-worldly heat property and its unpredictable effects. The sum of my years of nerdy obsession has manifested itself in this Instructable, for your indulgence. I hope you enjoy the product of my dorkliness!


This is fantastic!! :D

I would just want to drink everything out of that bottle, ha
