Duskfall, A Dawnbreaker Companion Blade

I wanted a blade to go along with Dawnbreaker and act as a dark/night version of it. First skyrim mod so any feedback is appreciated. Nexus version also available, check the bottom of this description.

Unlike other "Duskbreaker" "Dark Dawnbreaker" etc mods, this one is not OP and actually takes a small amount of work to obtain. Its not just "Get Breezehome, and heres a sword that'll 1 shot enemies." Duskfall is only a slight amount stronger than the original Dawnbreaker (2 or 3 base damage, its extremely close to the original), making it much more balanced in comparison to other mods.

You can obtain Duskfall ingame by completing the quest "Nightfall" (started by reading a book on the altar at the Kilkreath ruins). There are currently no quest markers (cant figure the damn things out, will be working on that) but there is a map marker for the location of the sword.

The enchantments are subject to change if I get suggestions for better ones or more powerful upgrades, so please give me your suggestions for the enchantments on this weapon.

Current Enchantments:
10 Frost Damage
1 second Soul Trap
25% chance to freeze targets solid at night

Can be upgraded at a grindstone with Ebony Ingots if you have the Arcane Blacksmith perk.

Please rate to show support and give any feedback you'd like.

Any questions, ask and I'll do my best to help you, though this is my first mod so it may be trial and error.

Known Bugs:
Quests may not start when you read the book. If this happens, you must just go find the Lair using the information in the book (there wasn't any location pointers anyway, so having the quest wouldn't have helped).

Nexus Version:

2/23/13 - Redid the enchantments on the weapon, changed from shock to frost
2/23/13 - Completely redesigned the dungeon and way to get it, added Nightfall quest
12/24/12 - Removed accidental forging recipe
12/22/12 - Changed enchantments. Lowered Soul trap time, added Lunar enchant
12/22/12 - Added legit way to get weapon. Added Duskfall Dungeon. Added Duskfall Guardian.

How about changing one of the enchantments to freezing normal people upon hitting them (To be the opposite of Dawnbreaker's enchantment to make the Undead explode) And at night it gets a new set of enchantments which are strong ones, but lowering the base damage? I dunno

i think it would have been cooler if you made them behave like Dawnfang and Duskfang (TES IV Oblivion, Shivering isle dlc weapon)
