Lost Dwemer Forge – Obsidian armor and weapons

Subscribed
Unsubscribe
Description
A short quest will lead you to a new obsidian armor set.
Start the quest by traveling to Markarth. A journal page can be found near Calcelmo (the Dwemer researcher).

--

The armor is based on the (hires) original Dwarven Armor, but with large metal parts replaced by Obsidian. The Armor is Light, with base armor rating very similar to Dragonscale armor.
The methods used to prepare the obsidian, making it usable as armor, has been lost together with the Dwemer. This means you will not be able to reproduce it (so it is unique), but the Dwemer may have left behind just enough prepared obsidian for you to upgrade it. Once.

MAJOR UPDATE: LARGER DUNGEON AND OBSIDIAN WEAPONS (READ FIRST)!
A bug prevented me from updating the steam version so the latest version (with weapons) will have to be downloaded from Skyrim Nexus: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=9958
*** Highly recommended (but unsubscribe here if you use the new version) ***

If you don't like the Nexus, here are direct downloads for the latest versions:
Texture replacement only: http://www.rognemedia.no/diverse/skyrim/Dwarven_texture_replacement.zip
Full mod: http://www.rognemedia.no/diverse/skyrim/Lost_Dwemer_Forge.zip
(Just unzip to your data directory. Delete files to uninstall.)

Fun fact:
* The model and texture files for malachite ("glass") is actually named "obsidian" in the game files. Bethesda likely considered adding obsidian to the game at some point!

Sorry princess, I'm no longer developing this mod. So there will be no changes to the armor design (and the "proper" version will not be uploaded to the workshop).

and also try to get the nexus version uploaded as soon as steam allows

might i suggest keeping the dwemer style, but give it a more... light armor-like look?
Something this light armor better, while also looking like something that would make up the armor for dwemer defense systems.
...and make a version of this and/or regular dwemer armor so I look like I'm ONLY a big hunk of machinery.
...and mabey some more original desines... if you get around to it.

oh and it would be great if you could put it here on steam, im too stupid for installing nexus mods XD

hey man, cool mod, i love the dwemer armor XD but could you fullfill me a little wish? a very simple request, a light dwemer armor without these giant shoulderpads, that would be cool. could you do that for me? you're awesome!

The armor is available on this steam download. If you want an update with some tweaks, a much larger and more interesting dungeon as well as weapons and ore, get the nexus version.
