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).

I like the blade and all, but something is a bit odd. I thought the whole Necromancer Lair thing was supposed to replace the Duskfall Dungeon, but it's still there. I actually have two swords now, one from both locations. Is that supposed to be that way? Cause it doesn't seem like it.

Awesome! I always felt that a Nightingale's blade goes nicely with Dawnbreaker though. Will be trying this one soon =)

Can you just give this blade to the boss Malkoran?
