About Joseph Russell

Who am I?

Good question. Very existential. Oh, you mean me?

I'm Joseph Russell, also known as Treacleman and Mythicia77 - an engineering student, writer, streamerYouTuber and modder. I've written a couple of novels and I have a website full of free short stories for you to cast your eyes over, but I'm probably best known as the creator and voice of Lucien, my custom-voiced follower mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. I've also made a number of other mods on the Skyrim Nexus, and I do a lot of streaming on Twitch and video-making on YouTube, where I have an ongoing roleplay series called Lucien the Dragonborn.

What am I up to next? 

My main focus at the moment is to continue updating Lucien with more content! He already has over 3000 lines of dialogue, including full commentary for Skyrim's Main Quest, College of Winterhold and Companions questlines, as well as a number of side quests. He also has special comments on hundreds of locations, NPCs and enemies. Additionally, I've designed him to interact with over 25 other mods, including followers like Inigo, Auri, Kaidan and Hoth and quest mods like Moonpath to Elsweyr and Moon and Star. However, I've got lots more planned for him, including a brand new dungeon, interactions with Legacy of the Dragonborn and Beyond Skyrim: Bruma, and plenty of surprises I can't wait to share. 

In terms of videos, I'm cracking on with my Skyrim roleplay series, Lucien the Dragonborn, along with a new tutorial series where I'll walk you through the entire process of making a custom-voiced follower mod just like Lucien. 

What am I doing on Patreon?

I'd like to make it clear that my content on the Skyrim Nexus and my website (barring the books, which cost money to print and distribute) will always remain free. I do it because I love to create and want to share that with as many people as possible. As a rule, you should never, ever feel obliged to support me financially and it'd be against the spirit of modding and storytelling if you felt that way.

That said, a few people have been kind enough to express an interest in supporting my work, and like many students in the UK, I have debt looming over me, rent that needs paying, food that needs buying, etc. etc. I'm certain I'll survive and keep modding and writing whatever comes my way, but please know that if you do decide to contribute, you're really helping me out and I'll be eternally grateful.

What about one-time donations?

If you'd rather not commit to a monthly subscription, there's also the option of a one-time donation through Paypal. In any case, whether it's in the form of a one-off contribution, a recurring patronage, or even a purchase of my latest book, I can't thank you enough for your generosity.

Monies aside, the feedback and support I've had from the community so far has been humbling. If you don't fancy supporting me here (and again, I really don't expect you to!), it'd mean the world to me if you'd care to drop me an endorsement or a friendly comment on the Nexus, a like on my Facebook page, or a subscription/follow on my Twitch and YouTube channels. Seriously, thank you guys.
