Description
Don't forget to vote if you like this mod!

Be anyone you want to be. Choose from 21 different loadouts then get randomly thrown somewhere in the vast land of Skyrim. Will you end up in the royal court of Solitude's magnificent Blue Palace or will you end up at the bottom of a dark, dank, necromancer-infested mine shaft and have to fight your way up to the surface? With 463 starting locations (and more being added) you will never enter Skyrim the same way twice! What will your story be?

Random Alternate Start is even better when used with the Character Creation Overhaul mod: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/21587

DETAILED FEATURES:
===================
- Choose from 21 class starting kits each with it's own semi-random loadout
- Start in one of 463+ locations in Skyrim after character creation
- The Main Quest thread can be picked up by investigating rumors of dragons near Helgen
- Very light footprint ensures clean integration with the main quest and maximum compatibility with other mods
- Best used alongside Character Creation Overhaul


COMPATIBILITY:
==============
Random Alternate Start is compatible with virtually all other mods, except for other alternate start/quickstart mods.


INSTALLATION:
=============
Subscribe through Steam Workshop, download using Nexus Mod Manager, or download manually and copy all files in the 'Data' folder to Skyrim's 'Data' folder then enable the 'Random Alternate Start.esp' file. Random Alternate Start should be at or near the top of your load order to avoid any mod conflicts.


UNINSTALLATION:
===============
To uninstall this mod, simply disable the 'Random Alternate Start.esp' file and delete all the related files from Skyrim's 'Data' folder.


KNOWN ISSUES:
=============
- If you run into Hadvar or Ralof they may bring up references to the dragon attack at Helgen as if you had been there. This will be corrected in the next release.
- If you experience crashing, hanged loading screens, continuous loading, or broken dialog for the Whiterun Gate Guard or Jarl Balgruuf you need to move the "Random Alternate Start.esp" to the bottom of your load order.
- Memory intensive hair mods can also cause crashes at character generation.

"Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—-of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life." - 1 Timothy 1:15-16

Is it by design that magic starting classes start with no magic at all besides your racial daily power? I have Midas Magic and spell impacts installed as well if that makes any difference but other than that no other spell mods. Other than that I'm loving the starting locations! Also kudos for the Bible verse at the end btw. :)

just a friendly tip, if you spawn in someplace where you are stuck, just type tcl in the console and no clip outta there
