Oblivion gets final DLC next week: Fighter's Stronghold
But you'd better get it while it's still free. Bethesda has announced the final bit of downloadable content for its latest time-swallowing RPG, Oblivion. Entitled "Fighter's Stronghold," it gives fighter characters a spiffy new castle to lounge around in. Within this castle, players can upgrade the furnishings, find the secret treasure vault, hire a taxidermist to create trophies, and much more. Players can even hire a vintner to make special ability enhancing wines. It has everything a fighter could want, including your own personal knights that patrol the premises (we wonder if you get XP for their kills). The best part of all is that it's free starting October 15th and will remain free for one week thereafter. Really, it sounds almost perfect. We have discovered one weakness though: no wenches. How can you have a fighter's paradise without wenches?

No wenches? That's crap!
I should at least be able to put a leash on the Shivering Isles dancing girl and drag her around with me.

I was all set to say I'm not massively interested in this.. But you can't argue about something that's free :)

Free oblivion content? Totally a misprint.

i'm wondering if i should download this.
for some reason Oblivion content from the Marketplace only works if i'm connected to Live.
when i'm disconnected the game is all "This game uses content that is no longer available. Do you wish to continue?"
anyone else get this issue?
and oh yeah, why the hell no wenches? can we still have a drunken tavern brawl?

I also had that issue ryan, because I lost my wireless router for a while, I couldn't connect to Live, but after I got Live back, it updated something and it worked fine offline.

I've been waiting for this one for quite a while. The family will be happy that Bethesda didn't forget about this addon.

Am I the only one that's disappointed that this is going to be the "final" bit of DLC for Oblivion!? :(
I think MS is making Oblivion stop because they know there's people like me that spend FAR too much time playing Oblivion instead buying a new game every month or so :D

Where's the Shivering Isles only retail disc? I want a retail version, but I'm not ready to buy the GotY edition for it.

My day is happy, now! :)
I have needed a castle for my fighter character. Now he gets one, and it's free! AWESOME!
I am slightly disappointed that this is the last add-on, but what else could we really need?
I'll be lucky if I can reach 100% completion (main quest, guilds, and side quests) before the next one comes out in a few years. I'll sure have fun trying though.
60 bucks for Oblivion = Best money I ever spent

hmm...intresting. thanks for the response, but iit's still not loading up Mehrune's Razor quest or any other ones i downloaded.
but i hook up to Live, play the game and i'm immediately bombarded with New quests available. i play them for a bit then save, get offline then load them up...where did my content go?
weird. and it's only this game that does it...

Ryan= I get the same problem, dunno why, I just got a router to keep the internet open and advoid that issue.
What does it mean by final?!?!? That can't be right, or sorry, one of the final?!? That better mean a new Elder Scrolls game.
