As the title says, this is the Blood Dragon Armor Set from the Dragon Age games. Well, a recreation, not a copy/paste. Credit to Bioware for the original design. No dlc required.

The armor will apply to all races, but there are no race specific parts. Khajit, Argonians, and Orcs will see no special treatment for now.

There are two versions of the armor: Unique (Blood Dragon) and Craftable (Dwarven Steel). Stats are similar and are either just above or just below Ebony Armor. The unique pieces also have enchantments. The unique version can be found just east of Robber's Gorge, Tamriel -21, 12 to be exact (Not a reference to Rush). A video of how to get the armor is above.

To craft, you will need about a dozen the following: Corundum ingots, steel ingots, and leather strips. Dwarven Smithing is also a requirement.

To temper, you will need 1-3 of each of the ingots above for each piece of armor.

-This is not a copy/paste of the original mesh/textures. Everything has been recreated from scratch with the originals used solely as guides. No more, no less.
-This is not recommended for lower spec systems. The textures are 2048x2048 and 2048x4096 and the armor has approximately 50k polygons.

Beta Release 2:
-Rebalanced details for the diffuse, specular, and normal maps on the boots, torso, and gloves.
-Adjusted the skin weights on the torso.

Beta Release 3:
-Added male armor

Known issues:
-The female front and rear plates will have polygons "cllp" through them depending on your viewing angle and distance. I have no clue why this is happening. If you know why, please let me know; otherwise, it will stay this way.
-Only the _0 female body will have parts that don't clip through each other most of the time. Transitioning to the _1 female body introduced some...design issues.
-This armor was designed to work with, well, itself. Mixing pieces with other armors may result in unsightly clipping, seams, and other fashionable oddness.
-The craftable version's female helmet seems to be bigger than the unique one, despite the only file difference being a texture change.
-The corpse next to the Bandit isn't consistently dead. It can be 1) alive and oblivious, 2) alive and running to keep that way, 3) dead, 4) alive and pulling a David Blaine, or 5) neither alive nor dead and standing upright in the air. Yeah. No idea. It's one of Bethesda's treasure corpses too.

In the screenshots, I am wielding weapons from my Dragon Age Series weapon packs.

Great mod! Also the shield of Aeducan would be a great addition to Skyrim.

If you've checked the area shown in the video and the NPC isn't there, it may have fallen out of the world, been killed by a roaming hostile NPC, or unable been to spawn. Try uninstalling my mod, making a clean save without it, reinstalling, and revisiting the area. If that doesn't work, you should probably check for any conflicting mods or, in the worst case, use the console to get the armor.

Sorry about that.

You will need to search for the item in your console since I don't know what position my mod is in your load order.

The unique version can be found just east of Robber's Gorge, Tamriel -21, 12 to be exact. There's a video above showing where to get it.
